Notwithstanding anything contained herein, there shall be no refunds initiated for Subscription Fee paid through any third-party loan financers. However, the Subscriber shall be permitted to request for the foreclosure of the loan. The request for foreclosure may be raised with the Company or directly with third-party loan financiers. If the request is raised with the Company, the Company’s obligation shall be limited to passing on the information to the third-party loan financier.

To process a refund for a Valid Refund Request, the Company may contact the Subscriber to verify details within 7 business days from the date of receipt of the request.

While the Company shall refund the Subscription Fee, there shall be a deduction towards payment gateway charges, interest and taxes, as applicable.

Whilst every effort is made to provide an excellent learning experience, the Company reserves the right to withdraw or cancel the refund in any event where we have identified a fraudulent activity attributable to the Subscriber requesting such refund and cancellation, including without limitation a violation of Platform Terms and/or applicable laws. In such circumstances, there shall be no re-attempt of refund made to such Subscriber.
