Terms of use

In subscribing to the Australian manual of scientific style (AMOSS), from Biotext, it is assumed that you have read, understood and accepted the conditions of purchase as listed below. 

Credit/debit card payment 

The customer’s card is debited by Stripe at the time of processing the purchase. After reviewing order details, the customer may opt to proceed to payment. After entering their credit card details (Visa or Mastercard only), the customer receives a message from Stripe as to the success or failure of their transaction, as conveyed to the www.sciencestyle.com.au website. 

Biotext does not have access to card details unless a customer calls Biotext and asks a member of staff to complete an order on their behalf. In this case, the customer’s card details will be entered onto the system by Biotext staff, but the information will not be stored by Biotext. 

Data are encrypted for the customer’s safety. Biotext cannot be held responsible for a security failure originating with Stripe or other suppliers.


Biotext will email you with confirmation of the receipt and acceptance of your subscription. Biotext at its sole discretion may rescind acceptance, in whole or in part, of any subscription containing incorrect information, whether this results from technical malfunction or any other cause, or in cases where the order is in conflict with the terms and conditions of purchase. 

Customers are not entitled to a refund of their subscription. Users may change login and password details via their login to AMOSS.


Biotext reserves the right at its sole discretion not to supply certain customers, or customers in certain countries, or to apply any limitations of quantity or value deemed appropriate.
