Your statutory rights as a consumer
For UK based customers, the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 say that you have a 14 day right to change your mind and get a full refund on the Services. The Consumer Rights Act 2015 says digital content must be as described, fit for purpose and of satisfactory quality. If your digital content is faulty, you’re entitled to a repair or a replacement. If the fault can’t be fixed, or if it hasn’t been fixed within a reasonable time and without significant inconvenience, you can get some, or all of your money back. If you can show the fault has damaged your device and we haven’t used reasonable care and skill, you may be entitled to a repair or compensation. Refunds will be made using the same method as the original payment. You may email us on [email protected]. Alternatively, you may use this form if you wish, but you do not have to.

Prices for our Products and Services may change from time to time, but changes will not affect any order which we have confirmed with you in a written confirmation email.

The price of a Product does not include delivery charges (unless stated differently at the time you place your order) which will be added at our sole discretion to the total amount due.
From time to time promotional discount codes are used in conjunction with third parties. We reserve the right to decline an order, where in our opinion a promotion code is invalid for the order being placed.
Any refunds given for orders placed using a promotional code will take the discount into account.
