11. INTERNATIONAL DELIVERY
11.1 We deliver to various countries around the world and we have distributors as listed on this page where to buy (International Delivery Destinations). However, we reserve the right not to supply any Product if its delivery to the requested International Delivery Destination may breach any export control restrictions, or where the costs of us having to comply with applicable export laws or regulations have not already been factored into our prices or delivery charges. If this happens, we will inform you by email that your order has been cancelled and, if you have already paid for the Product, we will refund you the full amount as soon as possible.
11.2 You and we shall comply fully with applicable laws and regulations governing the export of technical data, encryption technologies and other export laws and regulations of the US, EU and other states. You shall cooperate with us in our efforts to ensure that the Products comply with all applicable export laws and regulations. However, this clause does not affect our ability to cancel an order as described in clause 11.1.
11.3 If you order Products from our site for delivery to one of the International Delivery Destinations, your order may be subject to import duties and taxes which are applied when the delivery reaches that destination. Please note that we have no control over these charges and we cannot predict their amount.
11.4 You will be responsible for payment of any such import duties and taxes. Please contact your local customs office for further information before placing your order. We cannot accept return of Products on the grounds that you were not aware of any duties or taxes you are required to pay.
11.5 You must comply with all applicable laws and regulations of the country for which the Products are destined. We will not be liable or responsible if you break any such law.
12. PRICE OF PRODUCTS AND DELIVERY CHARGES
12.1 The prices of the Products will be as quoted on our site from time to time. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the prices of Products are correct at the time when the relevant information was entered onto the system. However if we discover an error in the price of Product(s) you ordered, please see clause 12.5 for what happens in this event.
12.2 Prices for our Products may change from time to time, but changes will not affect any order which we have confirmed with an Order Confirmation.
12.3 The price of a Product excludes VAT. If VAT is applicable, then this will be charged in addition to the price at the rate which for the time being that is prescribed by law. The amount of VAT that we will charge you will be clearly itemised in your shopping basket before you place your order. If the rate of VAT changes between the date of your order and the date of delivery, we will adjust the VAT you pay, unless you have already paid for the Products in full before the change in VAT takes effect.
12.4 The price of a Product does not include delivery charges. Our delivery charges are as quoted on our site from time to time and are also set out below:
– United Kingdom: £5.00
– Europe and Rest of World: £12.50
12.5 Our site contains a variety of Products. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Products on our site may be incorrectly priced. If we discover an error in the price of the Products you have ordered we will inform you of this error and we will give you the option of continuing to purchase the Product at the correct price or cancelling your order. We will not process your order until we have your instructions. If we are unable to contact you using the contact details you provided during the order process, we will treat the order as cancelled and notify you in writing. Please note that if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mispricing, we do not have to provide the Products to you at the incorrect (lower) price.
13. HOW TO PAY
13.1 You can only pay for Products using a debit or credit card or Pay Pal. We accept all major debit or credit cards
13.2 Payment for the Products and all applicable delivery charges is in advance. We will not charge your debit card or credit card until we dispatch your order.

19.6 These Terms are governed by English law. This means a Contract for the purchase of Products through our site and any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with it will be governed by English law.
