The Services may contain email services, chat areas, news groups, forums, communities, personal web pages, images, photographs, file cabinets and/or other message or communication facilities designed to enable you to communicate with others or IDC Technologies (each termed a "Communication Service" and collectively termed "Communication Services"). You agree to use the Communication Services only to post, send and receive messages and material that are proper and, when applicable, related to the particular Communication Service. By way of example, and not as a limitation, you agree that when using the Communication Services, you will not:

  • Upload, or otherwise make available, files that contain images, photographs, software or other material protected by intellectual property laws, including, by way of example, and not as limitation, copyright or trademark laws (or by rights of privacy or publicity) unless you own or control the rights thereto or have received all necessary consent to do the same.
  • Use any material or information, including images or photographs, which are made available through the Services in any manner that infringes any copyright, trademark, patent, trade secret, or other proprietary right of any party.
  • Upload files that contain viruses, Trojan horses, worms, time bombs, cancelbots, corrupted files, or any other similar software or programs that may damage the operation of another's computer or property of another.
  • Advertise or offer to sell or buy any goods or services for any business purpose, unless such Communication Services specifically allow such messages.
  • Download any file posted by another user of a Communication Service that you know, or reasonably should know, cannot be legally reproduced, displayed, performed, and/or distributed in such manner.
  • Falsify or delete any copyright management information, such as author attributions, legal or other proper notices or proprietary designations or labels of the origin or source of software or other material contained in a file that is uploaded.
  • Restrict or inhibit any other user from using and enjoying the Communication Services.
  • Violate any code of conduct or other guidelines which may be applicable for any particular Communication Service.
  • Harvest or otherwise collect information about others, including email addresses.
  • Violate any applicable laws or regulations.
  • Create a false identity for the purpose of misleading IDC Technologies or others.
  • Use, download or otherwise copy, or provide (whether or not for a fee) to a person or entity any directory of users of the Services or other user or usage information or any portion thereof.

IDC Technologies has no obligation to monitor the Communication Services. However, IDC Technologies reserves the right to review materials posted to the Communication Services and to remove any materials in its sole discretion. IDC Technologies reserves the right to terminate your access to any or all of the Communication Services at any time, without notice, for any reason whatsoever.

IDC Technologies reserves the right at all times to disclose any information as IDC Technologies deems necessary to satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process or governmental request, or to edit, refuse to post or to remove any information or materials, in whole or in part, in IDC Technologies' sole discretion.

Always use caution when giving out any personally identifiable information about yourself or anyone else in any Communication Services. IDC Technologies does not control or endorse the content, messages or information found in any Communication Services and, therefore, IDC Technologies specifically disclaims any liability with regard to the Communication Services and any actions resulting from your participation in any Communication Services. Managers and hosts are not authorized IDC Technologies spokespersons, and their views do not necessarily reflect those of IDC Technologies.

Materials uploaded to the Communication Services may be subject to posted limitations on usage, reproduction and/or dissemination; you are responsible for adhering to such limitations if you download the materials.


By placing an order for purchase of goods and/or Services via this website ("Order") you are agreeing to IDC Technologies’ Terms.

You may place an Order by following the instructions on the website. Your Order will be submitted by completing payment details and indicating your acceptance to the Terms. Orders will be deemed to have been received by IDC Technologies at the time IDC Technologies sends an Order confirmation to your nominated e-mail address.

Each Order (once accepted) represents a separate Agreement incorporating the terms of that Order. IDC Technologies reserves the right to not accept or cancel Orders. In the event that an Order is cancelled by IDC Technologies, any payments processed by IDC Technologies will be promptly assessed for refund processing purposes.

You acknowledge that the Internet can be an unstable and, sometimes, insecure marketplace. At times the website may not be available, or Orders may not be processed or may not be accepted for reasons beyond our control. In these circumstances IDC Technologies accepts no responsibility. IDC Technologies does not warrant and cannot ensure the security of any information which you transmit to us. Accordingly, any information which you transmit to us, including your credit card details, is transmitted at your own risk and IDC Technologies is not responsible while such information is in transit.


By clicking to proceed with your Order, you agree to purchase the Goods and/or Services ordered and authorise IDC Technologies to debit the total amount of your Order from your payment method selected.

Payment for online orders is to be made by Visa or MasterCard only. You may provide your nominated credit card details during the purchase process described on the website or request to be contacted to provide the appropriate payment details.

Once you click to finalise your Order, IDC Technologies will process payment for your Order, plus any delivery charges as itemised on the final screen where you indicate your acceptance of this contract (Total Amount), using your nominated credit card (Visa or MasterCard) using a secure payment gateway. In the event you wish to be contacted to provide payment details, a member of the IDC Technologies staff will endeavour to contact you in order to collect payment and process your Order. No Order will be processed until full payment is received by IDC Technologies.

If your nominated credit card is declined by your financial institution, IDC Technologies will not be able to guarantee the delivery of the Order, and may contact you to make alternative payment and delivery arrangements.

IDC Technologies may decide at any time not to accept payment from you by credit card for any reason. If we decline to accept payment, we will not process the Order and endeavour to contact you to inform you of the situation.


Refunds are only payable in certain circumstances and are entirely at the discretion of IDC Technologies.
