Credit/Debit card security on-line
We take security and customer service very seriously and appreciate the trust placed in us by all of our customers when giving us their card details.

Our employees have no access to any sensitive customer information, including card details held within
the FIS systems. Our employees use reference numbers, supplied to us by FIS at the time of order, to conduct any refunds or cancellations.
At no time does infinite Group Electronic store,transmit or have access to any sensitive card details.
When you place an order on-line or by telephone, we will treat it as an offer to buy. We will send you a confirmation email with your order number but please note that this is merely confirmation of receipt of the order you have made and does not constitute acceptance of your order, at which point we make a legal contract with you. However, we will be entitled to refuse to accept your order if we feel it necessary, in which case we will email you as soon as we can to let you know.
When you order, you will have an opportunity to check the details and correct any input errors.
In deciding whether to accept your order, we may use the information you have given to us, , or which we receive from any enquiry we may make with our credit checking company to confirm your identity. The credit checking company will check any details we disclose to them against any database (public or private) to which they have access and will keep a record of that check. The credit checking company will also retain this information and may use it in the future to assist other companies with identity verification. This assists us to protect you and us from fraudulent transactions. If we decline your offer on security grounds, we may contact you to seek an alternative payment method.
We will be entitled to refuse to accept your order if we feel it necessary (whether or not your credit/debit card has already been charged (or where relevant you have made a bank transfer), in which case we will email you as soon as we can to let you know. If your credit/debit card has already been charged (or where relevant you have made a bank transfer) and we then refuse to accept your order, we will immediately upon confirmation of refusal issue an appropriate credit to your credit/debit card (or where relevant refund monies to your bank account).
We only accept your offer to buy and conclude the contract of sale for the goods ordered by you, when we ship the product to you and send you an email confirming to you that we’ve shipped the product to you (the “Shipping Confirmation”). If your order is shipped in more than one package, you may receive a separate Shipping Confirmation for each package, and each Shipping Confirmation and corresponding shipment will conclude a separate contract of sale between us for the product(s) specified in that Shipping Confirmation.
The contract created between you and us by our acceptance of your order is binding on you and us and on our respective successors and assignees. You may not transfer, assign, charge or otherwise dispose of such contract, or any of your rights or obligations arising under it, without our prior written consent. We may transfer, assign, charge, sub-contract or otherwise dispose of such contract, or any of our rights or obligations arising under it, at any time during the term of such contract.

Failure to deliver
In the unlikely event that your goods are not delivered within 30 days of the date on which you received your Shipping Confirmation, then you may cancel your order straight away if any of the following apply:
- we have refused to deliver the goods;
- delivery within the delivery deadline was essential (taking into account all the relevant circumstances); or
- you told us before we accepted your order that delivery within the delivery deadline was essential.
If you do not wish to cancel your order straight away, or do not have the right to do so above, you can give us a new deadline for delivery, which must be reasonable, and you can cancel your order if we do not meet the new deadline.
If you do choose to cancel your order for late delivery in accordance with the above provisions, you can do so for just some of the goods or all of them, unless splitting them up would significantly reduce their value. If the goods have been delivered to you, you will have to return them to us, and we will pay the costs of this. Please contact us by email at email@example.com, and we will send a pre-paid bag to enable you to return your order to us at no cost to you. After you cancel your order, we will refund any sums you have paid to us for the cancelled goods and their delivery.
Occasionally our delivery to you may be affected by an Event Outside Our Control. See the section headed Events Outside Our Control for our responsibilities when this happens.
Title of goods
Title of all products ordered passes to you upon the full payment or delivery of products. The risk of loss and damage pass to you upon delivery.
If you are a consumer, you have a legal right to cancel your contract with us under the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 during the period set out in the paragraph below even if you have opened the goods to inspect them (save as provided below for certain types of goods). This means that during the relevant period if you change your mind or decide for any other reason that you do not want to receive or keep any Goods, you can notify us of your decision to cancel the contract and receive a refund. Advice about your legal right to cancel the contract is available from your local Citizens’ Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office. However, this cancellation right does not apply in the case of sealed DVDs, CDs, memory cards and computer software, once these goods are unsealed after you receive them.
Your legal right to cancel the contract starts from the date of the Shipping Confirmation, which is when the contract is formed. Your deadline for cancelling the Contract then depends on what you have ordered and how it is delivered, as set out in the table below:
|Your contract||End of the cancellation period|
|Your contract is for a single product (which is not delivered in instalments on separate days).||The end date is the end of 14 days after the day on which you receive the product. Example: if we provide you with a Shipping Confirmation on 1 January and you receive the product on 10 January you may cancel at any time between 1 January and the end of the day on 24 January.|
|Your contract is for either of the following: one product which is delivered in instalments on separate days.multiple products which are delivered on separate days.||The end date is 14 days after the day on which you receive the last instalment of the product or the last of the separate products ordered. Example: if we provide you with a Shipping Confirmation on 1 January and you receive the first instalment of your product or the first of your separate products on 10 January and the last instalment or last separate product on 15 January you may cancel in respect of all instalments and any or all of the separate products at any time between 1 January and the end of the day on 29 January.|
To cancel the contract, you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org . When emailing us please include details of your order to help us to identify it. If you send us your cancellation notice by email, then your cancellation is effective from the date you send us the email. For example, you will have given us notice in time as long as you email us before midnight on that day.
If you cancel your contract we will:
- refund you the price you paid for the goods. However, please note we are permitted by law to reduce your refund to reflect any reduction in the value of the goods if this has been caused by your handling them in a way which would not be permitted in a physical shop.
- refund any delivery costs you have paid us, although, as permitted by law, the maximum refund will be the costs of delivery by the least expensive delivery method we offer (provided that this is a common and generally acceptable method). For example, if you choose to have the goods delivered by Next Day Delivery, then we will only refund what you would have paid for standard delivery.
- make any refunds due to you as soon as possible and in any event within the deadlines indicated below:
- if you have received the goods: 14 days after the day on which we receive the goods back from you or, if earlier, the day on which you provide us with evidence that you have sent the goods back to us. For information about how to return goods to us, see below; or
- if you have not received the goods: 14 days after you inform us of your decision to cancel the contract.
We will refund you on the credit/debit card or via Amazon Pay (or where relevant by repayment to your bank account) used by you to pay.
If goods have been delivered to you before you decide to cancel your contract:
- then you must return them to us at the offices of our, Infinite Group Ltd. Unit 5, Pagoda Park, Westmead Industrial Estate, Swindon Sn5 7UN without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days after the day on which you let us know that you wish to cancel the contract; and
- unless the goods are damaged, faulty or not as described (in this case, see Damaged Goods or Faulty Goods below) you will be responsible for the cost of returning the goods to us. If the goods are such that they cannot be returned by post, we estimate that if you use the carrier which delivered the goods to you, these costs should not exceed the sums we charged you for delivery.
Because you are a consumer, we are under a legal duty to supply goods that are in conformity with the contract. As a consumer, you have legal rights in relation to goods that are faulty or not as described. These legal rights are not affected by your right of return and refund in this Returns section or anything else in these terms and conditions. Advice about your legal rights in the UK is available from your local Citizens’ Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office.

On rare occasions, an item may get damaged in transit or may not be as described. If you do receive a damaged item or it is not as described please email us within 48 hours at email@example.com and we will send a pre-paid bag to any UK address to enable you to return your order to us at no cost to you. We will then either refund the cost of the item plus the delivery charge paid (from original order) or replace your items. If outside the UK please contact us so we can discuss the return options.
What happens if my item is faulty?
