Your offer will be accepted by us and a contract formed only when we have verified your payment details at which point we will confirm your purchase by email to the address supplied. If you are purchasing an e-PACK, this confirmation email will include a link to a downloadable file of the BMJ PACK Product If we are unable to accept your order for any reason we will inform you by email and will not charge you. BMJ reserves the right to reject any offer in its absolute discretion.
