The Documents may be presented in several different forms (among others, white papers, term papers, thesis, market surveys, presentations) and are downloadable from the Site for a fee. Any User can have access to the part of the Site database that provides him or her with essential information describing each Document. Access to the full document through downloading requires for the User to register as a Member and for such Member to pay for the Document.

If the Member agrees to buy the Document, he or she clicks on the "Buy Now" button through which he or she is able to access the Document download.
