In order to make purchases on the Website, you must provide your personal details, including your real first and last name, valid mobile telephone number, valid e-mail address, payment details, valid billing address and other requested information as indicated. You represent and warrant that the payment details you provide are valid, complete and correct and confirm that you are the person referred to in the billing information provided.

You agree that we may use personal information provided by you in order to conduct appropriate anti-fraud checks and such personal information may be disclosed to a credit reference or fraud prevention agency, which may keep a record of that information.

Ordering Products

The services appearing for sale on the Website are subject to acceptance and availability. If for any reason following the placement of an order we are unable to supply a particular service, we will inform you as soon as possible and cancel your total order.

We may refuse to process a transaction for any reason or refuse service to anyone at any time at our sole discretion. We will not be liable to you or any third party by reason of our withdrawing any service from the Website, whether or not that service has been sold, removing, screening or editing any materials or content on the Website, refusing to process a transaction or unwinding or suspending any transaction after processing has begun.

The services available on the Website are for your personal use only. You may not sell or resell any services you purchase or otherwise receive from DOSC.

Every effort is made to ensure all details on the Website are accurate, however we may from time to time discover an error in the pricing or description of services, in which case we will let you know as soon as possible. We shall be under no obligation to accept or fulfil an order for a service that was advertised at an incorrect price and reserve the right to cancel such an order that has been accepted.

By confirming your purchase at the end of the order process, you agree to accept and pay the full amount payable for the service(s) as set out in your order.

The sale contract is concluded in Dubai, United Arab Emirates and the language of the contract is English. Our third party payment processor does not have the authority to accept an order on behalf of DOSC.

Prices and Payment

All credit/debit card payments are subject to validation checks and authorisation by the issuer. If the issuer of the credit/debit card refuses to authorise payment, we will not be liable for any delay or non-delivery and your order will be cancelled. The details on the credit/debit card used to make the payment must match the information of the cardholder as held by the issuer. Payment will be debited and cleared from your account upon completion of the processing of your order by DOSC. You confirm that the credit/debit card that is being used is yours or that you have been specifically authorised by the owner to use it.

The prices include the value-added tax (VAT) applicable on the day of the Order. We accept payment by credit and debit card (Visa, Mastercard).

If you are a customer whose credit/debit card is not denominated in United Arab Emirates Dirhams, the final price will be calculated in accordance with the applicable exchange rate on the day your card issuer processes the transaction.

No credit/debit card details or personally identifiable information will be stored, sold, shared, rented or leased to any third parties.

We take reasonable care to make the Website secure. Your card number will be protected using SSL (Secure Socket Layer). SSL is a security technology that encrypts your card details and provides a secure connection between Internet browsers and websites, allowing you to transmit private data online. We take reasonable care, in so far as it is in our power to do so, to keep the details of your order and payment secure, but in the absence of negligence on our part we cannot be held liable for any loss you may suffer if a third party procures unauthorised access to any data you provide when accessing or ordering from the Website.

Cancellation, Return and Exchange Policy

If you purchase a service that is cancelled by DOSC, you may request a refund by visiting the DOSC premises in the United Arab Emirates. DOSC may offer an alternative service, however if this is not convenient, you will be refunded in full.

If you change your mind after purchase but prior to using the service, contact the DOSC Administration Team to request a service cancellation. A refund will only be issued in exceptional circumstances or if DOSC can find an alternative purchaser of the service.

Refunds will only be done through the original mode of payment.

We will not accept any requests for cancellation of purchase of services once the service has been used. Any decisions relating to requests for cancellation, return or exchange of services is at the discretion of the Management.


We reserve the right to modify these Terms and Conditions at any time without notice to you. Any modifications of these Terms and Conditions will be effective once published on our Website. Your continued use of the Website (or any of our other websites) following such change shall signify your agreement to be bound by the modified Terms and Conditions. Please read the Terms and Conditions and check back often. If you do not agree to any change to the Terms and Conditions, then you must immediately stop using the Website.

These Terms and Conditions are governed by the laws of the Emirate of Dubai, United Arab Emirates and all disputes arising hereunder are subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Dubai courts.
