Terms & conditions

These Terms and Conditions (28/04/2011)

We've tried to keep our Terms and Conditions as clear as possible, and give you all the information we can (but not too much) about your online transactions so that you completely understand the whole process, from order to download and beyond. It's really important to us that your online shopping experience meets expectations, so please spend a few minutes and read on. You'll need to accept our T's & C's every time you make a purchase - they might change from time to time, so do check the date at the top of the page.

Our Contract after you have Ordered

Firstly, don't panic if you make any mistakes during your order, you can correct any input errors right up until you confirm payment.

Sometimes we have to hold our hands up and admit we have made a mistake by unintentionally publishing inaccurate information on the site (e.g. the price or description of a product you have ordered). In this instance we may have to cancel your order at any time up to the point you commence the download of the product(s), even if you have received your Receipt email, and you will receive a full refund of any charges already paid.

Prices and Payments

As you would expect, all our prices are in UK pounds. The total cost of your order will be the price of the products you order. You'll see these in your Shopping Basket before you submit an order. Payment is deducted by our partner, Ztorm, once an order is submitted and will appear as "Ztorm AB" on your credit/debit card statement.
When deciding whether to accept your order we and Ztorm may use certain information about you, including any received from our identity verification partner. For example, we may pass on your details for them to check against certain public and private databases. This will help to protect you and us from fraudulent activities.

Restrictions - Age Requirements and Limits on Orders

Some of our products have a minimum age requirement and by ordering you are confirming that you are of the required age. Your age will be checked using our age verification partner.

Faulty Goods

Where you have a query, or if the product you have downloaded has a problem, please contact Ztorm's Helpdesk here. Ztorm will aim to respond to your query within 24 hours of receipt during working hours of 8.00am to 4.00pm, Monday to Friday. Outside of these hours, please contact our Customer Service Centre on 0844 5610000.

We do not cover faults caused by accident, neglect or misuse.

Right to Cancel

You have the right to withdraw from the transaction without charge and without giving any reason until download of the product has started. The services commence immediately when you begin to download a product and you will not have a right to withdraw from a transaction or cancel your contract once the download commences unless you have received an unacceptably poor download. If this happens, you must tell us as soon as possible (and in any event within 21 days) by contacting Ztorm's Helpdesk here. Ztorm will aim to respond to your query within 24 hours of receipt, during working hours of 8.00am to 4.00pm, Monday to Friday. Outside of these hours, please contact our Customer Service Centre on 0844 5610000 and if the poor download is caused by us or Ztorm and cannot be resolved, a refund may be provided.

If a product becomes unavailable following a transaction but prior to download, your sole remedy is likely to be limited to a refund of the price paid for the unavailable product. If technical problems prevent or unreasonably delay delivery of the product, your exclusive and sole remedy is either replacement or refund of the price paid, as determined by us or Ztorm.

Refunds will not be provided under any other circumstances. Please read the system requirements very carefully before making any purchases.
