Please note that from time to time there may be delays with the processing of card payments and transactions; this may result in payments taking up to sixty (60) days to be deducted from your bank account or charged to your credit or debit card.

You acknowledge and agree that neither we nor our Suppliers (e.g Dept Of Digital) will be responsible or liable to you in relation to this delay by your bank or card issuer in the release of funds back into your account.
7.6 Rejected Orders: Because of standard banking procedures, once you have submitted an Order that you are paying for by credit or debit card and your payment has been authorised, your bank or card issuer will "ring-fence" the full amount of your Order. If your Order is subsequently rejected by us or cancelled for any other reason, your bank or card issuer will not transfer the funds for the Order to us, and will instead release the relevant amount back into your available balance. However, this may take between 3 to 5 working days (or longer, depending on your bank or card issuer). You acknowledge and agree that neither we nor our Suppliers (e.g Dept Of Digital) will be responsible or liable to you in relation to this delay by your bank or card issuer in the release of funds back into your account.
