All prices are in pounds sterling (GBP). We charge VAT on all products. The prices displayed on the website includes VAT at the prevailing UK rate (currently 20%). If you are purchasing our products from a country in the EC, the VAT element of the price is calculated at your country’s applicable VAT rate. This does not affect the VAT inclusive price paid.
For customers purchasing from countries elsewhere in the world, we can supply at VAT exclusive prices providing the order has a net value of greater than £1,000. Contact us directly if this applies to you.
We only sell brand new products, not used items.
Most products are immediately available for download. When an item is pre-ordered and money is taken for that item (as we use PayPal, this is standard procedure), an expected availability date will be communicated explicitly with the customer prior to purchase.
Many of our products are supplied as downloadable files.
When you place an order to purchase a downloadable item from us, we will send you an email and/or redirect you to a web page, confirming receipt of your order and containing the details of your order and how to collect the item(s). Your order represents an offer to us to purchase an item, which is accepted by us when we send email confirmation and/or a redirect to a webpage which provides details of how we have made that product available to you. That acceptance will be complete at the time we send the order confirmation email and/or web page redirect to you.
You will then be able to access links that will allow you to download your purchased files. You can download up to three copies within the period that the link is valid. The files will be licensed to you, however, and are not for resale or distribution.
By clicking the download link that provides you with immediate access to digital content as soon as you complete your purchase, you expressly waive your right to withdraw from this purchase.
