Terms &Conditions

Access to the PD Automotive Consulting and Vehicle eLibrary website services and to copies of licensed vehicle evaluation reports is provided solely in consequence in accepting and agreeing to comply with the Terms and Conditions and Restrictions upon Copyright and Further Distribution.  Vehicles are evaluated on a first come first served basis and collaborating Police Forces should consider the priority of vehicles submitted for evaluation to ensure that maximum business benefits are realised.  Manufacturers who pay for evaluation services will have their needs and preferences prioritised over all other considerations subject to testing slot availability and booking order.  Evaluation reports for additional vehicles submitted independently of these terms will be included in the Vehicle eLibrary and may be used by authorised service users in the same manner as any other verified PD Automotive Consulting vehicle evaluation report.  PD Automotive Consulting shall not be liable for any fee redemptions if less than any agreed number of vehicles are submitted for evaluation during the any given period.  Unless extenuating circumstances apply, reports will be uploaded to the Vehicle eLibrary within 30 days of the completion of the evaluation period.  Copies of reports are made available to the owning manufacturer for feedback and vehicle development purposes, however, due to commercial reasons and in the interests of confidentiality, competing manufacturers cannot be supplied with rival manufacturer reports.  All vehicles submitted for evaluation must be comprehensively insured and covered against all losses and copies of insurance policies and the relevant indemnification must be made available prior to evaluation work being commenced.  To prevent excess fuel charges from being applied, vehicles should be delivered with a full tank of fuel – PD Automotive Consulting will meet the costs of all additional fuel requirements.  We reserve the right to decline the evaluation of any vehicle presented with defects or faults that are deemed to be illegal or otherwise unsafe.  Subscription charges for all agreement periods are payable annually in advance on a pro rata basis. 

 All published prices are exclusive of VAT.
