________________________________________ Refund Policy
SSM will provide new, first-time enrollees a full refund so long as the enrollee cancels within thirty (30) days of first signing up (the “thirty-day refund period”). SSM will not provide refunds to persons who have previously opened other accounts, whether or not they are using the same or different user names, email addresses, or billing information. Each person or business entity is only entitled to one thirty-day refund window. Successive enrollments and refunds are prohibited.
After the thirty-day refund period, there shall be no refunds and your course fee is non-transferable. Accordingly, if you elect to cancel your subscription to the Service during the Subscription Period, you will not receive a refund on the Subscription Fee(s) previously paid to SSM. If you downgrade your subscription, you are not entitled to a cash refund.
You can cancel your account at any time by sending us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you paid your subscription with one annual payment and you cancel your subscription, you may use your subscription until the end of your then-current Subscription Period; your subscription will not be renewed after your then-current term expires.
However, you won’t be eligible for a prorated refund of any portion of the subscription fee paid for the then current subscription period. If you pay your subscription in monthly installments and you cancel your Membership prior to the end of the Subscription Period, then SSM will terminate your access to the Service and cease billing you for the Service. However, you remain responsible for all charges incurred prior to SSM terminating access to your account.
