Why do you charge tax?

Our online store is operated by a service provider, the e-commerce company MyCommerce/Digital River. They automatically take care of the global complexity of complying with VAT and other tax requirements.

For customers from EU member states tax will be charged unless you have entered a valid Value Added Tax Identification Number. Please do not forget to also enter your two letters country code.

In the following non EU countries tax payment is currently applicable for sales of electronic services or digitally downloadable products/services:
