Deluxe edition includes all the DLC:
When I checked out, I got an extra discount. I think this code is to offset the foreign transaction fee that is likely to hit your credit card. The payment is done via paypal.

I don't know how UPlay is with games from these sorts of sources but Steam has removed them from some people's accounts in the past.

From what I've read, not all of these sites do this as there are regional pricing differences that make it profitable to sell russian or other region keys to other region customers.
For Uplay, I bought AC3 and Far Cry 3 dirt cheap from people who got it free with a video card. I hate their system.
I had to buy the game on the uplay store, then download and install the game. Only then did it show in the "my games" section of Uplay.
After that it worked fine, except that the installer left tens of GB of rar files on my computer after it finished installing. So you really need double the space of what the system requirements are.
Patches were not automatic, installed one by one once I launched the game as well. Uplay is well well behind Steam, but you can play the games fine, plus the games run Uplay anyways if you get it off steam.
