QuestionHow to inform about a website that it can be hacked? Pin

I recently bought some digital goods from a website. I paid online via credit card and got access to a limited resources to be downloaded. While downloading those goods, I found that just by changing the query string parameter in the URL I can download other items that I have not purchased.
How can I inform the website owners about this vulnerability? Will the website owner charge me with the offense of hacking since the goods I did not pay for were downloaded on my machine when I was testing this vulnerability . I did not use them neither save them on my machine. I just discarded the download dialog box.
