Prices shown without VAT unless explicitly stated otherwise. If you are an individual who resides in a member state of the European Union taxation territory or a business located in it which does not provide a valid VIES-registered VAT number during the subscription process you will be charged VAT at the main rate of your country in accordance to the European Directive 2011/83/EU and its incorporation into EU member states' local laws. Residents of Cyprus and Cypriot businesses will always be charged VAT.
During the subscription process we collect personally identifiable information: both the information you fill in the subscription form yourself and information collected automatically (IP address, your country based on your IP address and your browser's user agent string). This is a legal requirement per European Directive 2011/83/EU; we are required to collect it to prove to the tax authorities that we have charged you the correct VAT. This information is considered part of the invoicing information of your transaction and cannot be erased until we are legally allowed to remove invoices, typically 10 years after the transaction has taken place.
