Placing an online order

All orders placed online are handled by an SSL secure server. This helps protect sensitive information, such as credit card information, from prying eyes. Orders placed online are stored on our server using secure encryption, so even if our server should be hacked, no sensitive information will be released.

Online orders for Onyx registration are handled by a shopping cart system hosted on a secure server at www.franklinveaux.com. You may view or modify your order as many times as you like before you place it; no information is sent to us until you decide to finalize your order.

Symtoys also makes available products from other companies. Online orders placed with these companies are governed by the terms and conditions of these companies and are not the responsibility of Symtoys.


Orders for online software are sent by email.

Orders for eBooks are available via a special download link when you place your order. You may download a single purchase up to 5 times using your special link. If you have any difficulties with a download, please email us!

Orders for posters are shipped via USPS. We ship your order in a plain, unmarked box, which has nothing to suggest its contents anywhere on it. The return address for shipped orders is "620 SE 146 Ave, Portland, OR 97233, USA."

Orders which do not ship (for example, registration orders for software) will usually be filled within 4 business days of the order. When you register software online, you will be emailed the registration codes for the software you are ordering. Please, take special care to make sure you give us your correct email address! Occasionally, people do not type their email address correctly. This can make it very difficult to get you your registration code!

For any order, whether for products or for software registration, your credit card will reflect a charge from "Tacit Assumptions LLC"

Terms and Conditions

For orders shipped to the United States, we accept VISA and MasterCard. Orders billed to any credit card must include the correct billing address for the credit card, even if the order is being shipped elsewhere.

We ship all orders as fast as we possibly can. Generally, this means 1-4 business days for software registration.

Please note that we cannot accept responsibility for any orders confiscated by foreign customs, and all import duties, tariffs and taxes are the responsibility of the customer.

Note that all computer software and all eBook purchases are non-refundable and is provided "as-is." We don't offer any warranty on software, nor do we guarantee that any software will be perfect or bug-free. However, we do generally try to fix known bugs in our software, and bug-fix updates are generally free of charge. If you discover a bug in our software, please, let us know!

Poster orders are also non-refundable. Should there be a problem with a poster order, such as a poster damaged in transit (which rarely happens, but is possible), please email us and we can ship a replacement.
