Conditions relating to the Sale of Products to You
When you place an online order to purchase a product from the AES, or from AES publications in the case of the AES books, (both hereafter known as 'us'), you will be sent an email confirming receipt of your order and containing the details of your order. Your order represents an offer to us to purchase a product which is accepted by us when we send email confirmation to you that we've dispatched that product to you. Taking payment from your credit/debit card does not indicate our acceptance of an order. That acceptance will be complete at the time we send the dispatch confirmation email to you. Any products on the same order which we have not confirmed in a dispatch confirmation email to have been dispatched do not form part of that contract.
We only offer English as the language for the conclusion of the contract.
Prior to submitting your online order you will be able to review the order and make any changes/corrections using the links provided. After submitting the order you will also be able to view a copy of this order within the online shop 'My account' section. A copy of the contract is not kept, only the order.
Except where goods are faulty, if you decide to return goods then you will be responsible for paying any return costs.

This condition does not affect your statutory rights.
