To be clear, we do not offer prorated refunds or credits for any portion of the subscription price for a terminated or cancelled subscription. This means that if you purchased a Course your termination or cancellation does not affect your payment in this regard. In other words, if you terminate or cancel your subscription we shall not pay you back the (remaining) monies you have paid for the Course. All requests for an exception must be submitted in writing to firstname.lastname@example.org. No refunds will be given if the student has filed a chargeback/dispute with their payment provider or there is indication of excessive use of the site's video lessons or other services provided on the site.
