Terms of Use

As a registered member of BUILD MANUAL and related web sites (Sites)1, you agree to the following terms and conditions.

Membership site access

Full access to Sites requires a paid membership pass. Credit card payments are processed by Stripe; a credit card and email address is required. All transactions are secured with HTTPS Secure Socket Layers (SSL) protocols. Your credit card information is never transmitted or retained by us. The only information we keep on our servers is your email address and username (you may use your email address as your username if you wish) that is used to identify your membership account. Your email address will never be shared with third parties – we take security and privacy very seriously. Sites will always remain member-supported and absolutely commercial-free.


Your password is never retained by us. If you forget your password, simply reset it using the link on the login page (a link will be sent to your email address). You may also reset your password anytime for security purposes.


Secure access to Sites requires cookies which are small data files temporarily downloaded to your computer. Cookies are deleted after you log off. The use of cookies is strictly for security and they serve no commercial purpose (we never track subscriber Sites activity). If cookies are not enabled on your browser, you cannot access the site.

Security and privacy

Sites are protected with SSL (secure socket layer) protocols. This means that access is through HTTPS and the browser window may display a padlock favicon indicating a secure connection.

No credit card data is stored on Sites servers. All passwords are encrypted and cannot be accessed internally. As a result, if a password is lost, a new one must be created. The only personal data retained, other than login credentials, is the valid email address of a subscriber. When a subscription pass expires, subscriber login data is retained.

Your personal data is never shared with any third parties. A subscriber’s email address is only used to send messages relating to use of the Sites.
