GATEWAY GAZETTE REFUND POLICY

Due to the nature of some Services provided by Gateway Gazette, refunds may not be provided, other than as set out below.

In the event of any advertising related Services providing exposure, no refunds will be issued. All services can be cancelled at any time prior to the next renewal date (whether on a monthly or annual plan) to prevent further charges.

In the event of any courses or educational programs as a provided Service, we want you to be satisfied with your purchase but we also want you to give your best effort to apply all of the strategies in the course. We offer a 30-day refund period for course purchases. However, in order to qualify for a refund you must submit proof that you did the work in the course and that it did not work for you.

In the event that you decide your purchase of a course was not the right decision, within 30 days of enrolment, contact our support team at [email protected] and let us know you’d like a refund by the 30th day at 11:59 MST. You must include your coursework with your request for a refund. If you request a refund and do not include your coursework by the 30th day, you will not be granted a refund.

The work that you need to submit with your request for a refund includes ALL of the following items:

  • Workbook progress for all exercises for each module and lesson up to the point of the refund request.
  • Video view progress tracking for all lessons released up to the point of the refund request.

A refund will NOT be given if you have not viewed the lessons and completed the exercises.

We will NOT provide refunds more than 30 days following the date of purchase. After day 30, all payments are non-refundable and you are responsible for full payment of the fees for the program regardless if you complete the program.

Please note: If you opted for a payment plan and you do not request a refund within 30 days, with the required coursework at the time of your refund request, you are required by law to complete the remaining payments of your payment plan.

All refunds are discretionary as determined by Gateway Gazette.
