Nah, you're likely to get a download of a pirated version with a matching key.

Ignore the customer support page though.  The owner of the website is listed publicly as:

They could also be using a technet subscription to give out your key... it has 10 activations and then its useless... ive seen a few dodgy people use this as a money making scam.

They could also be using student discounts, or a employer program .. either way thats non a supported use.

I would stay clear to be honest, buy from a reputable dealer.
