Terms and conditions for the sale of products to the User
The Datacomp Store is available to customers residing in the region served by the Website and destinations where Datacomp may send its products may be subject to limitations in accordance with Datacomp’s delivery rules.

In accordance with settlement information given by the user, Datacomp will generate a purchase document (an invoice), which will be sent in an electronic version to e-mail given by the User in the account information.
Product prices and availability may change any time without notice, but a price displayed when the order is confirmed by the User will be always binding. Datacomp may apply a quantity limitation to the first order, account or person. The User will be informed about the limitation via the Website or before the order is accepted by Datacomp.
Datacomp may refuse to fulfill or reject an order any time on reasonable grounds, including, without limitation: the User’s failure to meet conditions set out when the order is placed, an inability to process the User’s payment, non-availability of products or services ordered, or obvious errors in the Website or connected with the order.

Then, Datacomp will contact the User to offer the product at a correct price or cancel the order.
Software offered for download at the Datacomp Store (“Software”) and other goods (including services) offered at the Datacomp Store or under the Services are protected with Datacomp’s copyrights. The purchase of Software means the purchase of a license for the use of Software and not the purchase of the very Software. Software licenses bought at the Datacomp Store are subject to a license agreement attached to Software (“Licence Agreement”). Read it! The User will have to accept the License Agreement during the installation of Software.
As part of electronic Software download, products are delivered to the User by the way of making a download path available in the Datacomp account connected with the purchase of the product. Products bought under subscribed electronic Software downloads may be subject to other terms and conditions concerning storage. The User must read and accept those regulations while subscribing.
On the assumption that automated renewal of a service period is permitted in the User’s country, region, province or state, the User may buy subscriptions that will be automatically renewed from Datacomp. If the User buys such subscriptions and informs Datacomp about a payment method, the User: represents that he/she is authorized to use a given payment method and all information given in relation to payment is true and precise, authorizes Datacomp to charge him/her for a service fee by the use of the payment method, and authorizes Datacomp to charge him/her for a fee for all paid service functions that the User subscribes or uses during the term of this agreement. Datacom will notify the User by e-mail before automated subscription renewal. The moment the User is notified of automated subscription renewal, Datacomp may renew the service period and charge service fees applicable in the term of renewal on the User. Datacomp will also remind the User of fees Datacomp will charge for renewed services by the use of the selected payment method, whether the method is registered on the renewal date or later. Datacomp will also provide the User with instructions for service cancellation. To avoid an invoice to be issued for the term of renewal, the user must cancel services before the renewal date.
The Datacomp Store uses prices given on the Website. If there is a point of sale offering Datacomp’s products in the User’s country or region, prices, products and promotions offered there may differ from those offered on the Website.

Prices displayed on the Website include all taxes and charges (“Taxes”) which may apply to a given purchase transaction. Prices displayed on the Website do not include delivery costs.

Before purchase confirmation, the User will be able to get familiar with all delivery costs and other charges applicable to the purchase transaction. The price of each element in the Basket is up-to-date.
Products offered by the Datacomp Store are not Datacomp’s binding offers. If the User clicks “Buy now” or a similar button to send an order to Datacomp, the User places a binding offer for all products in the basket. If the order is accepted by Datacomp, the User will receive an automated confirmation by e-mail. A purchase agreement is entered into on the basis of the above e-mail.
The Datacomp Store offers various payment options, as specified in the Website. At the Datacomp Store, the User may pay for products via PayPal. The Datacomp Store does not accept any other payment forms. Datacomp reserves the right to change the payment options anytime and for any reason. If offers are placed in the User’s local currency and the User pays in another currency, the final price translated into the User’s currency will depend on a foreign exchange rate, taxes and charges imposed by the User’s bank. Such transactions may be subject to taxes or charges imposed on international transactions, which are not charged by the Datacomp Store.
