CDs, DVDs and USB Keys are checked and verified prior to being despatched.  If you think that a disc you have received from us is faulty, please contact us.  We might ask a few questions just to ensure it is a fault with the item and not another problem that we can help you to resolve.

If the item needs to be returned to us we will send you a Return Materials Authorization (RMA).  Please ensure that this RMA is clearly displayed on the outside of the envelope/package you are returning.  Any returns sent to us without a RMA number will be refused.

If you have returned an item to us and, after testing, we determine that the item is NOT faulty, we will send you a payment link for you to pay the cost of returning the item to you.
