Return Policy

Return of Goods

If there is a technical deficiency in the software that affects its ability to meet a specific need, MD5 Ltd will, at its discretion, refund the purchase price (excluding shipping/handling) within 30 days of purchase. Retention of delivered product(s) outside of this period will be considered acceptance of the goods as per the Terms of Service (accepted at point of sale for online purchases and available on request) and no refund will be entered into unless conditional upon a fault or technical/clerical error by MD5 Ltd.

A refund is conditional upon the following criteria:

  • The customer must seek technical assistance from MD5 Ltd to try and resolve the issue.
  • The customer must provide MD5 Ltd with sufficient information for MD5 Ltd to reasonably investigate the matter with a view to identifying and rectifying any issues.

A refund will not be satisfied if:

  • The customer has not requested technical support before submitting refund request; or,
  • The customer has contacted technical support but has not provided sufficient information to identify the issue; or,
  • The customer has not followed instructions given by MD5’s Support team in order to attempt to resolve the issue.
