Purchases and Payment process
14. Ordering Process
We may make available for purchase on the Website certain products, content, materials and other items. When you request paid-for products, content, materials or other items ("items") or services through the Website, this is an offer by you to purchase such items or services from us. All offers you make to purchase items or services from us are subject to our acceptance. Our acceptance of your offer and the subsequent contract between us for the purchase of such items or services will be formed only when your payment for the items or services has been processed and we have commenced delivery of the items or services to you.
For any physical products you purchase from us, you have the right to cancel your order during a period of seven working days beginning on the day after we inform you that we have accepted your offer to purchase such products (or, if a longer period is mandated under the law of the country in which you reside, such longer period). However, your right to cancel any such order is contingent upon you returning at your cost such product(s) in good, unused condition, if we have shipped them to you prior to receiving or processing your cancellation.
For any streaming, download or other services delivered by means of the Website that you purchase from us, you understand and acknowledge that because we commence delivery of such services as soon you order them, you will not have a right to cancel your content purchase.
Please note that we will not file any contract that exists between us.
The purchase price for any items or services you purchase through the website will be set out on the Website. While we try hard to ensure that all prices displayed on the Website are correct and up to date at the time you place an order, it is possible that an occasional mistake may be made. We may refuse any order or cancel any contract between us in respect of any item or service which has been obviously incorrectly priced or where some other clear error has been made. All prices are inclusive of all sales and other taxes unless otherwise stated.
You must make the appropriate payment by credit or debit card or other payment mechanism approved by us and made available through the Website and provide us and/or our payment service providers with the necessary information for your payment to be processed. You confirm that the payment card or account used by you is yours or that you are authorized to use such card or account and there are sufficient funds or credit facilities to cover the payment.
You will be given the opportunity to correct any input errors in your payment details prior to completing your purchase request.
Orders for any items or services made available to purchase through the Website may not be processed until we have completed any validation checks described immediately below and we have received payment in full.
16. Validation Checks
All credit/debit/charge card and other payment service transactions may be subject to validation checks and authorization by the relevant card and service providers. If your card issuer/payment service provider refuses to authorize payment to us, we will not be liable for any delay or non-acceptance of orders made by you through the Website.
We reserve the right to require proof of identification and age before processing any order made through the Website.
