OUR CONTRACT WITH YOU

You place an order for digital products or services by adding your chosen digital product or service to a shopping cart. Once you are ready to purchase, you will enter your name, email address and payment details. To purchase the digital product or service, you must click the “Buy Now” button. When you click the “Buy Now” button, you understand and agree that you will be charged for the digital product or service via the payment details you have provided.

Please read and check your order carefully before submitting it. However, if you need to correct any errors you can do so before submitting it to us. In any event, before you place your order you must check that the hardware and software requirements of your computer or device mean that you can download or access the product.

How we will accept your order. Our acceptance of your order will take place when we email you to accept it, at which point a contract will come into existence between you and us.

If we cannot accept your order. If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this in writing and will not charge you for the digital products or services, or we will immediately refund you if your payment has been processed. This might be because:

  • of unexpected limits on our resources which we could not reasonably plan for;
  • we have identified an error in the price or description of the product; or
  • we are unable to meet a delivery deadline we have specified;
  • the product is unavailable;
  • we cannot authorise your payment;
  • you are not allowed to buy the product from us; or
  • we are not allowed to sell the product to you.

PRICE AND PAYMENT  

Where to find the price for the digital product or service. The price of the digital product or service (which includes VAT) will be the price indicated on the order pages when you placed your order on our website. We use our best efforts to ensure that the price of the digital product or service advised to you is correct. However please see below for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the digital product or service you order.

We will pass on changes in the rate of VAT. If the rate of VAT changes between your order date and the date we supply the digital product or service, we will adjust the rate of VAT that you pay, unless you have already paid for the digital product or service in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect. 

What happens if we got the price wrong. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the digital products or services we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before making our digital products or services available for purchase. If, however, we discover that a digital product or service was incorrectly priced after accepting your order:

  • where the correct price at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will refund you the additional amount paid;
  • if the correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you for your instructions as to whether to proceed with your order at the increased price and provide the digital products or services (which may involve us refunding the lower price you have paid, and you then re-purchasing the digital products or services for the correct price), or whether to cancel your order and issue a refund.

When you must pay and how you must pay. We accept payment with debit and credit cards. When purchasing either digital products or services, you must pay for your purchase at the time of ordering them.
