10. Your Account
By registering and paying either a monthly, or a one time fee to CanadaStartups.org you agree to waive all rights to a refund once you’ve logged in to our platform. Due to the fact that CanadaStartups.org provides sensitive information which we sell as our service, logging in to our platform and using our services, you will not be allowed to obtain a refund. We urge that you are familiar with the service and the product offered by CanadaStartups.org before your registration and purchase. Prior to registering with a paid account, be sure to speak to our support team and ensure you have all of the information available which will help you make an informed decision. Once your account has been set up to CanadaStartups.org; your login details provided, an expert has been chosen, you will no longer be eligible for a refund. Note that any registrations under a promotional plan will not be eligible for a refund. CanadaStartups.org does not sell the platform and service solely based on “grant funding” or “funding” in general, but provides a product which is the Small Business Startup Portal access and associated service. In the event that you registered for a monthly membership, you may cancel your subscription at any time after the initial 6 months of services (with no refund provided for the already paid months), and with an additional 30 days notice for cancellation with a valid reason. Any accounts and fees being charged back, disputed or reported as unauthorized will immediately void your account until the investigation of such transactions are investigated.
Access to expert help and guidance is limited to communication via email, platform’s support ticket system and via the Ask an Expert program. To ensure a constant availability of experts to best service your needs through the 24/7 support time frame, no phone support is provided by an expert.
11. Cancellation / Refund Policy
CanadaStartups.org does not provide refunds once you have successfully logged in to the platform or used our tools, resources and services which are only available to our members. In addition to that, no refunds are provided to members who’s accounts have been set up and experts assigned. A 30 Day Refund Policy is available to all members who do not log in to the platform within the first 30 days as long as a valid and acceptable reason is provided. In case a refund is approved, merchant and administrative fees are deducted upon registration; these fees are non-refundable and total 5% of the transaction. All other refund or account cancellation requests are void aside from a request to cancel the monthly subscription after initial 6 months plus 30 day notice. Failing to provide notice to monthly subscription, or attempting to cancel your account prior to the 6 months term, you may automatically be charged for remaining months up to the end of the term. Those members on a free trial account (any length of time) will automatically be charged after the free trial has expired – you may cancel your free trial account any time within the given time of the trial to avoid being charged the monthly subscription fee. To cancel your monthly subscription before the trial expires simply get in touch with us before the trial is up.
