The Company provides a money-back guarantee for the Program. That money-back guarantee is governed by the following terms.
We want You to be satisfied with your purchase, but we also know that your success will hinge on whether you put in the work necessary to succeed.

To claim a refund, You must request your money back within 7 days of the first day of the Program. You may request your money back by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.

To meet this requirement, you must demonstrate that you have completed the work by submitting completed course worksheets (for Week 1 of the course), documentation of participation in the first Q&A session, and the reason for the refund request.
Upon determining that you are entitled to a refund pursuant to this policy, the Company will promptly issue an instruction to its payment processor to issue the refund. The Company does not control its payment processor and will not be able to expedite any refunds.
Refunds requested for any other reason will be handled on a case-by-case basis, and may be subject to certain fees, including but not limited to, payment processor and administration fees.
