How we use your personal data
The steps required to create the Contract between You and Us are as follows: Setting up your Account: You complete the “signup form” on the Site and register Your personal data with Us by inputting the same into the e-form. Before Your Account is activated You will be asked to agree to the Terms. Once you have agreed to the Terms by clicking in the checkbox you will be able to activate your account. By activating your Account You irrevocably agree to be bound by these Terms. It is intended that the Account will allow You to make an informed decision about purchasing a Product.
Purchasing a Subscription: You login to your Account using Your Account Login, select Your desired Product(s) via the Subscription purchase portal and register Your personal payment details with PayPal (the “Payment Process”). At the end of the Payment Process We will confirm that your Account will be or has been given access to the Subscription Area by e-mailing You with an acknowledgement of payment in accordance with clause 6.1(b)(ii) below. All purchases of Products are made under Our Terms.
We may send You an e-mail to say that we do not accept Your order for a Subscription. This is typically for the following reasons:

We cannot obtain authorization of Your payment;
You are not permitted to purchase the Product; or
There has been an error by Us on the pricing or description of the Product.
We will only accept Your order for a Subscription when You have clicked the checkbox, next to the Terms, on the registration page.

The Subscription Period and Subscription Fees

Subscription Fees are payable in advance and are non-cancellable and non-refundable following the Commencement of the Services in accordance with clause 6.1(b)(iii). Once the Contract comes into existence the Subscription Fees remain due and payable regardless of the extent to which You make use of the Services.

Limitation of Our liability:
If You are a Business, we only supply the Services for internal use by Your business, and You agree not to use any Product for any re-sale or any other commercial purposes (including internal business use without prior written approval from Us).
Nothing in these Terms shall limit or exclude Our liability for:

No Waiver: If We fail to insist that You perform any of Your obligations under the Terms, or if We do not enforce our rights against You, or if We delay in doing so, that will not mean that We have waived Our rights against You and will not mean that You do not have to comply with those obligations. If We do waive a default by You, We will only do so in writing, and that will not mean that We will automatically waive any later default by You.

30-Day Money-Back Guarantee Terms
We will provide refunds under the 30-day money-back guarantee within five business days in the following cases:
- The package was not used at all due to a technical failure on our side that prevented the user from accessing their account. If we resolve this within 48 hours, this case will not be valid for a refund.
- There was a significant discrepancy between our tests and the real publisher, industry or employer tests. If the discrepancies were significant, a full refund will be given. If there were discrepancies, but they are not deemed significant by our Support Team, a partial refund of 25% - 50% will be given. The level of significance will be judged from the information you provide in your refund request. We therefore advise you to provide us with examples.
We are not liable to provide refunds for reasons that sit outside these such as:
- You don’t like the platform
- You didn’t pass your tests
- You think the questions are too hard / easy
- You signed up by mistake
The tests we provide are for practicing and simulating the actual exams you’ll encounter. They are not designed to be the same as the actual tests to ensure that they do not infringe on any copyright law. It’s our aim to give you exposure to multiple tests and help you learn skills which you can apply to whichever test you face in a real job application process.
The terms and conditions of our 30-day money-back guarantee apply to individual paying customers only. In order to claim a refund, you must submit a refund request within 30 days of purchasing their package. Refund requests outside of this timeframe may not be considered.
If you are not satisfied with your purchase and your refund request is in line with the above terms, please reach out to the Support Team; firstname.lastname@example.org. A member of the team will respond within 5 business days.
We are a reputable business and will work with each customer to ensure a fair experience. Kindly remember that as a seller of an online platform, we are exposed to high levels of abuse, often due to problems outside of our control. We will always seek a reasonable way to both maintain our business and protect our customers.
