How refunds are administered
Refunds are provided in accordance with our stated refund terms and are processed within 3 to 5 business days of your request outside of the Dutch school holidays. The following policies govern refunds by product or service type: Consultations: Refunds for services such as individual consultations packages and readings are not provided under any circumstances. There are no exceptions to this policy.
Programs may include audio, video and pdf files, as well as individual and group coaching options. Once a program page has been accessed through payment or a contract has been signed he/she is considered as having participated in the program.
The start date being the date which is clearly communicated when paid for the program on the opt-in page, during a pre-Master Class and/or in the after purchase email.
We do not offer full refunds at the full price of any purchased programs. There are no exceptions
In case of cancellation between the four and two weeks before the start of the annual program, the participant shall be due 50% of the annual program amount
In case of cancellation within two weeks before the start of the annual program, the entire annual amount is payable.
If a participant prematurely terminates the program, no partial refunds of the annual amount shall take place.
Payment in instalments for the relevant program year must be paid in full. Only in case of serious illness which makes it impossible for the participant to continue the annual program (in the future) can a written partial refund 75% of the annual amount be requested for the remaining part of the program.
The judgement of SIGRID VAN HEERWAARDEN is decisive in this. If necessary,
certificates from a GP or medical specialist should be given.
If SIGRID VAN HEERWAARDEN decides to accept the application, 75% of the annual amount for the remaining part of the program will be refunded
In case of cancellation of the program by SIGRID VAN HEERWAARDEN a refund will take place for the part of the program in which you have not received the service
Downloads are monitored by user IP address on our servers and proof of download will be provided to customer if requested. Once files are downloaded they are considered to be purchased and all refund policies for digital files apply.
Digital and media file purchases will not be refunded as they are available as instant downloads and delivered after purchase. This also applies to programs that include downloadable media files, such as audios, videos, and .pdf documents, which are available to the purchaser for their use. Once a program is accessed and the files available, a purchase has been completed and the customer has access to the files. Purchase is considered to be complete and refunds are not provided on materials that the customer has received. There are no exceptions to our refund policy as it applies to digital media.
Refunds for Master Classes are not provided under any circumstances. Calls are recorded and those are available to all purchasers. If you do not download the recording prior to its expiration, which is clearly stated in the Master Class and its accompanying materials, you may request that the file be sent to you electronically or in hard copy at an additional charge. You should send all such requests to email@example.com
The charge that will appear on your credit card statement will be made to Sigrid van Heerwaarden. If you place a chargeback with your credit card company (on purpose or by mistake) for any order including recurring orders that you placed and received, there will be a 75 euro research fee charged to your account upon receiving the chargeback by our merchant provider to cover our investigative expenses to prove that you did make the purchase.
If you do not remember making the purchase – call the number on your statement next to the charge BEFORE calling your bank or submit a support request at firstname.lastname@example.org. You may call us at the number posted on our website if you have questions about your purchase.
Sigrid van Heerwaarden does not tolerate credit card fraud, and all fraud, without exception, will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. In addition, we will pursue civil legal action seeking any loss of income related to the fraud, including business revenues, legal fees, research costs, employee down time and loss of revenues.
Sigrid van Heerwaarden considers credit card chargebacks to be fraud if you have made no reasonable effort to work with us to resolve any problems with your purchase. All chargebacks require extensive administrative time to process and take them away from our usual and customary matters of conducting normal business, as they are time intensive, therefore:
You agree that if you, the buyer, choose to do business with Sigrid van Heerwaarden and you file a chargeback with your credit card company, and you do not win the charge back argument, you agree to pay us 75 euro for our time spent responding to the credit card company to resolve this matter. We are obligated to respond to and resolve every chargeback.
You, the buyer authorize us to charge the amount of your purchase to your credit card. If this charge is rejected, Sigrid van Heerwaarden will pursue legal action to recoup losses for our time associated with responding to the charge back in addition to any other fees explained above. You agree to reimburse us or any representative we may appoint for any legal expenses your actions may make us incur. We take fraud seriously. If any provision of this Agreement is deemed illegal, invalid, or unenforceable, the remaining provisions shall remain in full force and effect. The waiver of a breach hereunder does not waive any other or subsequent breach.
In the event that you win the charge back with your credit card company, and have not submitted a ticket to our support site prior to issuing Sigrid van Heerwaarden will attempt to recover a research fee plus additional costs via a third-party collection agency and your account will be reported to all credit bureaus as a delinquent collection account. This may severely damage your credit rating for at least the next seven (7) years.
Customers who initiate chargebacks are removed from our customer lists and blocked from further purchases from our websites. Any person who violates the terms and conditions of our business policies, as stated and defined here, are also removed from all customer and mailing lists and blocked from making further purchases on our websites.
Note: The customer must attempt to contact us via email or any existing ticket system before attempting a chargeback.
