Purchasing of vouchers

Should you purchase vouchers from our website please note the following –

1.      Mind-Candy is not responsible and you will not receive a refund if your voucher has an expiry date and you do not use it before the expiry date.

2.      When purchasing vouchers, often it is not a physical product which you receive, but a code or license key. Mind-Candy considers the sending of a code or license key to your e-mail address which you have provided to us by phone or via our website - delivery of this type of product in full.

3.      Mind-Candy may include in the purchase price of a voucher a service fee. The value of the voucher which is redeemable is therefore less than the list price of the item. Example you may purchase an itunes voucher for 27 US$ from us and the redeemable value is US$25. The 2 US$ is our service fee on the item. It is your responsibility to make yourself aware as to the redeemable value of the voucher.

By clicking the “Accept” box on our website you, “the user” accept the terms and conditions in this document and accept that they are binding upon you and upon Mind-Candy.
