e-Oppi’s learning material

1. Hello. You are about to purchase a book published by e-Oppi Oy (hereafter “we”). Before doing so, we ask you to familiarise yourself with the following terms of use. The function of these terms of use is to tell you how you are allowed to use our learning material. We also want to prevent any unauthorized or illegal use of our books, and protect both our and our authors’ copyrights. 

In general

2. We hold the copyright to all the books we have published. This copyright means that we alone have the right to determine how our books are used, as specified in the Finnish copyright law. By agreeing to these terms of use, you consent to a legally binding agreement with us about the terms of use of the book you are about to purchase. 

Right of use and accessibility

3. You can exercise your right of use to the book you have purchased through the online service where you have acquired your right of use. To use the book, you need a computer or smart device with an internet connection and a compatible web browser. The requirements concerning which devices fill these criteria can change over time.

4. A third party unaffiliated with e-Oppi (hereafter ”service provider”) is responsible for the maintenance and upkeep of the online service on which the book is located. We are not responsible for the actions or derelictions of the service provider, which may disturb or prevent the use of the books you have purchased. 

Receiving the right of use

5. In order for you to receive the right of use to the book, you must agree to these terms of use.

6. The right of use to a book is subject to a charge. Educational establishments pay a yearly license payment determined by their number of students. If your educational establishment has not completed the payment for you, you must complete a payment for the learning material yourself in order to receive the right of use to it. The cost of each book is specified in our price catalogue. The payment for a book is completed via the service provider’s online service.

7. If you are a teacher, you will receive the right of use to all the textbooks your educational establishment has determined their official learning materials for free. Your educational establishment must inform the service provider of the decision in which our textbook has been selected as the establishment’s official learning material, and supply a written document confirming that you are a teacher at said educational establishment and need the right of use to the textbook. 

The contents of the right of use

8. The right of use gives you the right to (a) read the textbook on the service provider’s online platform as often as you desire to, (b) print out some pages of the textbook for your own personal use.

9. These rights are personal, which means that you cannot give other persons access to the textbooks you have purchased by giving them your account information. You also do not have the right to transfer the right of use to a textbook to another person.

10. You cannot copy, reproduce, forward, present or use the textbook or parts of the textbook in any way that is not inside the boundaries set in this agreement and the Finnish copyright law. You also cannot circumvent or delete any technical features of the textbook that protect it from being copied or reproduced.

11. Your right of use does not restrict our right to sell different rights of use to other persons.

User-created content

12. If the service provider through which you access the textbook technically allows it, you have the right to modify the book by adding and removing content. The service provider is responsible for maintaining and presenting these changes in the boundaries set in their terms of use.

13. The service provider may make it possible for you to publish your modified textbook so that other users on the online platform have the option to become participants or users of the book. The service provider may make it possible for your textbook to become visible to other users. Although we encourage our users to modify and customise their textbooks to suit their specific needs, we want to remind you that you can only give access to your modified textbook to people who have acquired the right of use to the same textbook.

14. You hold the copyright to all the changes and modifications you make in the textbook. If you decide to publish your modified textbook to other people, you give us a parallel right of use and utilization to the changes you have made. We need this right in order for you to be able to share the textbook with other users and for other users to receive the right of use to the modified textbook. This stems from the fact that e-Oppi Oy must hold the rights to all materials that are published in its name. We promise to only use this right to fulfill the aforementioned uses. For the sake of clarity, it should be pointed out that e-Oppi does not have the right to log in to your account or your teaching material. We have the right to transfer or give away the aforementioned right if such a decision becomes necessary. This will not have any effect on your rights to the modified textbook.

15. You are responsible for all changes and modifications you make in your copy of the textbook. This means that you must make sure that your modifications do not infringe on the copyright of any third party. As our books are learning materials, it is important that your modifications do not contain factual errors, offensive material or misleading content.

16. We are not responsible for monitoring, checking or correcting the modifications you make in your textbook. However, by agreeing to these terms of use, you give us the right to order the service provider to stop the publication of your modified textbook to other people if we deem such an action necessary. 

Right of cancellation

18. As determined in Ch. 6, 15 § of the Finnish consumer protection act, you have the right to cancel your right of use during a period of 14 days beginning from the day on which you received the right of use. However, this cancellation right is not valid after you have already opened the textbook. 

The validity of the terms of use

18. Your right of use is valid indefinitely. This means that your right of use is in effect until the other party decides to discontinue it. If the service provider decides to end the maintenance of the online platform where the textbook is hosted, your right of use is discontinued without further notice.

19. We have the right to change and modify these terms of use. You will be informed when the terms of use are changed, and you will be given the option to either agree to the new terms of use or discontinue your right of use to the textbook.

20. The payment made for the right of use to a textbook is not returned even if your right of use is discontinued due to aforementioned reasons or if you do not agree to a change in the terms of use.


21. We make sure that our textbooks are made professionally and that they are of a high quality, but we cannot guarantee the validity of all information presented in them. The books may contain spelling or factual errors. The nature of scientific knowledge also necessitates that previously held notions can be replaced by new views supported by factual evidence. You do not have the right to ask for compensation for any damage that may be caused by factual errors contained in our textbooks. 


22. The purpose of these terms of use is to outline the rights and duties of both parties. You do not have the right to appeal to any provisions or conditions that may have been presented either in oral or written form prior to these terms of use.

23. Note that putting these terms of use into practice may require you to agree to the terms of use between you and other third parties, especially the service provider. These agreements have differ from this agreement in terms of their subject and parties, and you cannot appeal to agreements made between you and a third party to question the provisions of this agreement. 

The invalidity of provisions

24. Even if one of the provisions of this agreement were to be proven invalid, this would not have an effect on the validity of the agreement as a whole, given that the provision in question does not render the rest of the agreement irrelevant. 

Applicable law and disagreements

25. Finnish law is applicable to this agreement.

26. We hope that no discord is formed between us. We try to solve possible disagreements through negotiations. However, if necessary, disagreements can be solved in a court of law. käyttää vain välttämättömiä evästeitä istunnon ylläpitämiseen ja anonyymiin tekniseen tilastointiin. ei koskaan käytä evästeitä markkinointiin tai kerää yksilöityjä tilastoja.
