Microbit Foundation Shop Terms and Conditions

The Micro:bit Foundation giving shop is ran by Kitronik, who also fulfil all orders. Because of this your bank statement or credit/debit card statement will show Kitronik Ltd as the billing name and the emails you receive from the shop will be from Kitronik. We’ve been involved in the micro:bit project from the very beginning and are happy to support the foundation with their sponsorship program.
