Online payments

Online credit card payments are dealt with for us securely by PayPal.

Consequently, we do not hold any financial details about you; neither do we store any other details on our servers than necessary to fulfil your orders, keep you in touch with our products and services, and to offer you the best service possible.

Cooling-off period

We allow a 14-day 'cooling off' period for returns (except for bespoke services).

Music sales

Please note that if you purchase music from us, and wish to return it within the 14-day 'cooling off' period, then your licence for the music will be invalidated; you must destroy any copies you have made under such a licence.

We are a small company that relies on sales to continue publishing. Illegal photocopying prevents us from doing so.

Accordingly, in order to assist with the protection of your personal information, we are registered with the UK's Information Commissioner's Office.
