The Reseller shall not have any obligation to refund any fees that may have accrued to your Account before cancellation of your Account or cessation of use of any Subscription, nor shall the Reseller have any obligation to prorate any fees in such circumstances.

As the Account holder, you are responsible for all charges incurred, including applicable taxes, and all purchases made by you or anyone that uses your Account, including your family or friends. If you cancel your Account, the Reseller reserves the right to collect fees, surcharges or costs incurred before cancellation. Any delinquent or unpaid Accounts must be settled before the Reseller can allow you to register again.
You also understand and acknowledge that Accounts are user rights binding you to such an Account, and that the Reseller does not recognize any transfer of Accounts (including transfers by operation of law) from one subscriber to any third party. Each customer shall be the sole holder of his own Account.
Your purchase is subject to product requirements which you must read before purchasing a product. The act of making a purchase constitutes your tacit understanding and compliance with these requirements. The Reseller shall not be held responsible for any loss, incompatible or erroneous purchases. We encourage you to contact our customer services, in such an event, so we may resolve your problem to the best of our ability.

You may cancel your Account at any time. You may cease use of an Account at any time or, if you choose, you may request that we terminate your access to an Account. However, Accounts and product delivery are not transferable and product purchase transactions entitle you to a single right to the delivery of a product. Your cancellation of an Account will not entitle you to any refund for any products or fees. The Reseller holds the right to collect fees, surcharges or costs incurred prior to the cancellation of your Account. In addition, you are responsible for any charges incurred to third-party vendors or content providers before your cancellation.
The Reseller may cancel your Account at any time, in the event that (a) the Reseller closes down the Store, or (b) you breach any terms of this Agreement (including any Subscription Terms or Rules of Use). In the event that your Account is terminated or cancelled by the Reseller for a violation of these Terms of Sale or improper or illegal activity, no refund, including of any Subscription fees or of any unused funds in your Account, will be granted.
By creating an Account, you also accept the Terms and Conditions of the Members Rewards Program available on the Website.
All accounts created before the launch of the Website are not submitted to these Terms & Conditions of Sale. Therefore, all accounts created before the launch of the Website do not qualify for the Members Rewards Program and are not transferred to this Website. Returning customers should create a new Account.
Products are for sale within the limit of available stock. Offers for Products that are out of stock shall be valid on the condition that they can be obtained from the Reseller’s suppliers. The Reseller shall grant a limited license of access and use of the Website. The processing and delivery of orders shall always be honoured upon availability of stock.
Your Product Order is a binding offer to the Reseller to purchase the said Products. Upon the placement of an order an ensuing and immediate confirmation message will be displayed followed by a confirmation email to you. Such automatic confirmation does not constitute an acceptance by the Reseller of your order, but a notice of acknowledgement. The Reseller's acceptance of your order shall occur, and a contract shall form only once the Reseller approves the order. We only accept your offer and conclude the contract of sale for a product ordered by you, when we dispatch the product to you and send e-mail confirmation to you that we've dispatched the product to you (the "Fulfillment Confirmation E-mail").
If your order is dispatched in more than one package, you may receive a separate Dispatch Confirmation E-mail for each package, and each Fulfillment Confirmation E-mail and corresponding dispatch will conclude a separate contract of sale between us for the product(s) specified in that Fulfillment Confirmation E-mail. Your contract is with the Reseller.
The orders shall be placed exclusively via the Internet.
Automatic order confirmation errors may occur. Please check the automatic order confirmation for errors and inform us immediately of any discrepancies. You guarantee all data provided during registration is true, accurate, up-to-date and complete. Orders will only be accepted from Customers 18 years of age and older.
The Reseller holds the right to cancel or refuse any order from a Customer with whom a previous order’s payment litigation is being resolved.
You consent to receive sales invoices electronically. Electronic invoices will be made available in your Account on the website. For each delivery, in our Fulfillment Confirmation E-mail you will receive a link to your electronic invoice on the Site. If you do not have an account and have not printed your invoice upon receiving your Fulfillment Confirmation Email, or for further information about electronic invoices and instructions on how to receive a paper copy please contact our customer support [email protected]
Your order shall be delivered to the address indicated during the ordering procedure. The delivery delay indicated on the Website is strictly indicative and may vary with the progression of the order. The Reseller cannot be held responsible for delayed delivery or the loss of a package by postal services or couriers and ensuing consequences. It is your responsibility to verify the good condition of their package(s) and its content upon receiving the package. In the event the package(s) or content are not in conformity with the order, you shall put in writing a full description of the content and disconformities, on the delivery slip, and shall issue a letter, with an acknowledgement of receipt and similar in content, within 3 days of reception.
At the time of purchase, you will have the possibility to pay with all displayed payment methods. Any other methods will not be endorsed.
The Reseller uses TLS (Transport Layer Security) encryption technology for your transactions. Your banking information is not stored by the Reseller. Stored banking information is stored by the Payment Service Provider, only if you have selected the option of saving a credit/debit card to your name, for a future use during check out or for a pre-order. Therefore, the Reseller does not have access to private banking details and credit history at any point. To prevent abuses and fraud, the Reseller only stores your address and the transaction time and date. This data remains strictly confidential.
Any attempted fraud or deception, regardless of scope, will immediately lead to further action, as part of which all related transaction data might be forwarded to the authorities.
When you provide payment information to the Reseller or to one of its payment service providers, you establish that you are the authorized user of the card, PIN, key or account associated with that payment, and you authorize the Reseller to charge your credit card or to process your payment with the chosen third-party payment service provider for any purchases or fees chargeable to your account. The Reseller may require you to provide your address or other information in order to meet the Reseller’s obligations under applicable tax law.
For subscriptions purchased, based on an agreed usage period, where recurring payments are made in exchange for continued use (“Recurring Payment Subscriptions”), by continuing to use the Recurring Payment Subscription, you agree and reaffirm that the Reseller is authorized to charge your credit card, or to process your payment with any other applicable third-party payment processor (such as Paypal), for any applicable recurring payment amounts. If you have purchased any Recurring Payment Subscriptions, you agree to notify the Reseller promptly of any changes to your credit card account number, its expiration date and/or your billing address, or your PayPal or other payment account number, and you agree to notify the Reseller promptly if your credit card or PayPal or other payment account expires or is cancelled for any reason.
If your use of the Store and purchases are subject to any type of use or sales tax, then the Reseller may also charge you for those taxes, in addition to the Subscription or other fees published in the Rules of Use.
You agree that you will not use IP proxying or other methods to disguise the place of your residence, whether to circumvent geographical restrictions on Product content, to purchase at pricing not applicable to your geography, or for any other purpose. If you do this, we may terminate your access to your Account.
The ownership of the Products shall be transferred to you when full payment is received. However, any risk of loss, theft or destruction, in the period between the delivery and the transfer of ownership, shall be borne by you. Should you not honour the payment obligations for any reason whatsoever, the Reseller shall be entitled to demand that the delivered merchandise be returned immediately, at your own cost, risk and peril.
The Reseller makes no representations or warranties, either expressed or implied, regarding any third-party site. In particular, the Reseller makes no representation or warranty that any service or subscription offered via third-party vendors will not change or be suspended or terminated.
