Acknowledging receipt of your order. After you place your order, you will receive an email from us acknowledging that we have received it, but please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted. Our acceptance of your order will take place as described in clause 3.4.
Accepting your order. Our acceptance of your order takes place when we send an email to you to accepting such order (Order Confirmation), at which point and on which date (Commencement Date) the Contract between you and us will come into existence. The Contract will relate only to those Services confirmed in the Order Confirmation.
If we cannot accept your order. If we are unable to supply you with the Services for any reason, we will inform you of this by email and we will not process your order. If you have already paid for the Services, we will refund you the full amount.
4. Cancelling your order and obtaining a refund
You may cancel the Contract, if you notify us as set out in clause 4.2 within 24 hours of your receipt of the Order Confirmation. You cannot cancel the Contract once we have completed the Services, even if the 24 hours period is still running.
To cancel the Contract, you must contact our Customer Services team as soon as possible. If you are emailing us or writing to us please include details of your order to help us to identify it. We will email you to confirm we have received your cancellation.
If you send us your cancellation notice by email or by post, then your cancellation is effectively sent from the date you send us the email or post the letter to us. Provided that for the purpose of calculating any deductions, the daily fee rate stops applying on the date we receive your notice of cancellation (see Clause 18.4 for what we mean by receive).
Subject to Clause 4.6, we will refund you in full for the price you paid for the Services, after a cancellation, by the method you used for payment. And the refunds will be made:
a. If there is a return and you are to bear the cost of return, within 5 days from the day on which we receive the Service back from you.
b. In all other cases, within 30 days.
We may deduct from any refund an amount for the supply of the Services for the period up to the time when you give notice of cancellation in accordance with clause 4.2. The amount we deduct will be based on all of the following:
a. our daily fee rates, as set out on our site at the time you submit your order.
b. Any reduction in the value of the goods where this is occasioned by you.
c. If there is a return and you are responsible for the costs of return, the direct cost to us of collection.
The maximum refund for delivery costs will be the costs of delivery by the least expensive delivery method we offer. For example, if we offer delivery of Services within 3-5 days at one cost but you choose to have the Services delivered within 24 hours at a higher cost, then we will only refund what you would have paid for the cheaper delivery option.

Unfortunately we are unable to perform the Services at addresses outside Nigeria.

Where VAT is payable in respect of some or all of the Services you must pay us such additional amounts in respect of VAT, at the applicable rate, at the same time as you pay the Charges.
It is always possible that, despite our reasonable efforts some of the Services on our site may be incorrectly priced. Where the correct price for the Services is less than the price stated on our site, we will charge the lower amount or If the correct price for the Services is higher than the price stated on our site, we will contact you in writing as soon as possible to inform you of this error and we will give you the option of continuing to purchase the Services 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. However, if we mistakenly accept and process your order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mispricing, we may cancel supply of the Services and refund you any sums you have paid.
