  • Ensure your email account is working properly. Occasionally, customers discover the email account specified at purchase is not functioning correctly.

While subscribers are entitled to virtually unlimited use of our database, The Consus Group has established several restrictions to protect our intellectual capital:

  • Reasonable Usage: Subscribers are limited to reasonable usage as denoted in the Terms of Use governing subscriptions. This reasonable usage restriction is intended to protect The Consus Group’s intellectual property, not to restrict legitimate use of our site.
  • Limited License: Subscribers receive a non-exclusive, non-concurrent, non-transferable, limited license to access the Subscriber Content. The Subscriber Content is available only for the designated user and may not be shared with other non-designated persons or entities. The subscriber is responsible for the confidentiality and use of the user name and personal password. The subscriber’s responsibility extends to all activity and use under the user name and password.

Additionally, “pop-up stoppers” — software which prevent browsers from opening additional windows — may cause difficulties for subscribers browsing documents. While The Consus Group does not advertise via pop-windows, TCG does use additional browser windows for displaying subscriber-only documents. These software programs (e.g., Popup-Stopper) may impair your ability to browse our database.

Most “pop-up stoppers” allows users to make exceptions for certain websites if specific key strokes are used. For example, several software packages allow pop-up windows to open if the Ctrl is pressed while clicking on a link. Please consult the your pop-up blocking software’s help files for more information.
