7. Guarantee and Cancelling a digital download
7.1 This Section 7 applies to all our customers that purchase any content under these terms and conditions:
Under the Consumer Contracts Regulations, digital downloads are neither goods nor services, meaning the law is a little different.
For digital downloads, consumers will need to waive their cancellation rights before digital content can be provided. This means that once a consumer/customer has downloaded the content, then they have given up their consumer rights to a refund.
Consumers will typically waive these cancellation rights when they purchase the digital goods. This can be done through some form of verification box (such as a tickbox) for consumers to acknowledge that they have waived their consumer rights to a refund for digital content.
