Pursuant to Directive 2008/8/EC of 12 February 2008 on the common system of value added tax, the VAT applied when ordering digital product(s) from a member country of the European Union or a French overseas departments and territories is that of your country of residence.

Mantano reserves the right to modify its prices at any time in order to respect the price variations defined by the Editors, however the digital products are invoiced on the basis of the prices in force at the time of the validation of your order.
