3. Fraud Prevention/Security

To help guard against fraud, the major credit card companies have implemented a system to ensure the credit card used in a transaction is actually possessed by the user. This system may be called security codes, CVV2 (Visa), CVC2 (MasterCard), or CID (American Express). The verification number is a non-embossed number printed on the credit card.

For Visa / MasterCard / Discover card, the three-digit verification number (CVV2) code is in the signature area on the back of your card far right side. Your credit card number should be printed here along with a three-digit number at the end.

For American Express cards, you can find your four-digit verification number (CID) on the front of your card above the credit card number on either the right or the left side of your card.

As a consequence of this, you may be asked to provide the CVV when transacting with AWD-IT.

In addition, in order to help prevent fraud and identity theft, AWD-IT will not permit the purchase to proceed if the invoice address does not match the cardholders registered card address. In addition, for purchases over £ 750 (750 GBP) the delivery address must also match the invoice address and the cardholders registered card address.

4. Website Security

All sensitive consumer data collected on this site is used only for the purpose of completing the transaction. Transaction information is transmitted to our payment partner using 128 bit SSL encryption.

5. Children (under 18)

AWD-IT.co.uk does not sell products for purchase by children. If you are under 18, you may use AWD-IT.co.uk only with the involvement of a parent or guardian.

6. Alteration of Service or Amendments to the Conditions

We reserve the right to make changes to our website, policies, and these Conditions of Use & Sale (Terms and Conditions) at any time. You will be subject to the policies and Conditions of Conditions of Use & Sale in force at the time that you use the website or that you order goods from us, unless any change to those policies or these conditions is required to be made by law or government authority (in which case it will apply to orders previously placed by you). If any of these conditions is deemed invalid, void, or for any reason unenforceable, that condition will be deemed severable and will not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining condition.
