10. Credit card charge back policy
We protect our business and credit card processors, banks and other institutions providing related services to us from fraudulent credit card chargebacks. A credit card chargeback is when the holder of a credit card disputes a charge with a credit card processor, bank or other institution and the charge is charged back to the business. The chargeback is fraudulent if the credit card holder disputes a charge to a legitimate charge for services the holder has purchased. You understand and agree that in the event you attempt to create a fraudulent credit card chargeback, we will work with the relevant credit card processor, bank or other institution and law enforcement authorities to investigate the matter. Our assistance may include providing details about the profiles, card authentication and communications with or related to our service or other users or Members. Engaging in activities aimed at reversing a legitimate charge is illegal. You understand and acknowledge that you can be prosecuted for such activity and we reserve the right to reclaim any fees and costs we incur in responding to fraudulently filed chargebacks.
Please note that you may not use goods that you have received before deciding to withdraw from the purchase. The normal right to withdraw exists to allow you to examine the product in the same way as you would in a shop, not to give any free use. Our website doesn’t sell physical goods but online services that can be used instantly. You hereby agree that once you have logged in as a subscriber you will be considered to have used our services and therefore can’t claim a refund of any kind.
