d. 24-Hour Satisfaction Guarantee: If for any reason you are not 100% satisfied with any of the GrantMe Services after your point of purchase, simply send us an email within 24 hours of your purchase and we will provide you with a full refund.
e. Cancellations/Refunds: Please note refunds are only issued if a request is made within 24 hours of the purchase date. For all requests for a refund or cancellation beyond this point, you must attend a 1-1 call with one of our Student Account Managers. This person cooperates with you, noting your concerns/feedback and doing what is within their power and is in line with our Terms to resolve your concerns. From this point, the money-back guarantee applies. Before we go into the details, it is important to note that we can only guarantee what we can control and it's only coaching you on your applications, and interview performance. We do not have any control over your reference letters, school selection, GPA, volunteer work/extracurricular activities, and when you submit your applications. That's why we expect that you have a good GPA (>86%) and volunteer experience as indicated below and also that you have applied to 30 Premium scholarship applications and received a 5/5 score on each one from the GrantMe Editing Team prior to submission. If you do not meet the criteria below, you can still take advantage of the Academy platform and most students choose this platform because of its comprehensive nature rather than the details of the guarantee below. Nevertheless here are the details:
To be eligible for the money-back guarantee, you must enroll in the GrantMe Academy, must have applied to 30 Premium Scholarship Matches selected for your profile, have all scholarship/university tracking completed. ensure all applications are reviewed by our editing team + all suggestions are accepted, at least 25 of the scholarship applications are essay-based, and for any scholarships with an interview component, must have a full course load and the student must have booked at two 1-1 interview preps with a Student Account Manager
Our promise to you is simple. If you have followed everything above and don’t win your payment equivalent back in scholarships, grants, or bursaries, you will, 1 year from your point of purchase, be able to claim your money-back guarantee. If we receive your formal request within this 1 year since your time of purchase we will refund 40% of your initial purchase price for the GrantMe Academy platform (excluding any taxes and installment fees, if applicable)
f. Failure to Pay If you select an installment payment plan, you will be obligated to complete all installment payments. A failure to pay an installment payment related to any of the GrantMe Services may result in the immediate suspension or termination of all Services. Upon suspension or termination, you will no longer be able to access your account and any Services. To maintain access to your account and all corresponding Services, your account and payments must be current and in good standing for all programs and services for which you have registered.

h. Taxes. You are responsible for any applicable sales or use tax, duties, or other governmental taxes or fees payable in connection with your purchase.

- Information reasonably sufficient to permit the service provider to contact the complaining party, such as an address, telephone number and, if available, an electronic mail address at which the complaining party may be contacted;
- A statement that the complaining party has a good-faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent or the law and;
