Arabie REFUND AND PAYMENT POLICY
Your purchase of and payment for lessons shall be regulated by this Refund Policy.
PLEASE READ IT CAREFULLY BEFORE MAKING A PAYMENT AS IT DETERMINES YOUR RIGHTS WITH REGARD TO YOUR PURCHASES, INCLUDING ESSENTIAL RESTRICTIONS AND EXCLUSIONS.
Arabie strives to ensure clear understanding of financial relations between students and tutors with respect to the services we provide. This policy applies to all services and features made available through the Website.
Arabie facilitates contracts between users (students (their parents) and tutors) by supplying a platform to request, deliver and pay for such Services. Arabie is only a platform and in no case will be a party to any contracts made by tutors and students, or any other service or materials provided by a tutor. Arabie will in no way be responsible for monitoring any transactions between students/parents, and tutors.
Cancellation of a lesson
Lessons can be cancelled any time up to 4 hours before the lesson is due to start and rescheduled thereafter.
Otherwise, you are liable to be charged the full amount for the scheduled lesson, unless the tutor agrees not to charge you after a formal discussion.
We reserve the right for every tutor to charge the cost of the lesson that is cancelled less than 4 hours before its due time, without possibility of this amount being refunded to the student or transferred to other tutors.
You can cancel/reschedule lessons through your Arabie account easily by clicking the corresponding button in ‘My lessons’ for the scheduled lesson anytime up to 4 hours before your lesson. You will be asked to provide a reason for cancellation which, in most cases, will be forwarded to your tutor.
Change of a tutor
In case you decided to use your right to change a tutor after the first lesson, you can only do this not more than 2 (two) times. In case you decide to change tutors more than 2 (two) times, the next first lesson with any other new tutor should be paid.
If the tutor doesn't suit you or the lesson didn't take place, we will guarantee you a free lesson with another tutor that you'll choose on the site, or we will refund the payment immediately after submitting.
In case the tutor doesn't suit your needs, or your scheduled lesson didn't take place but was accidentally confirmed, you can ask us to refund or transfer these funds to another tutor within 3 days of the scheduled lesson's start time.
To make a refund the cancellation of lesson(s) is required to be made in 24 hours before the lesson is due to start.
If there are extenuating circumstances meaning a lesson is missed or needs to be cancelled at short notice, these refunds can be made at the tutor's discretion, but there is no obligation on the tutor to do so.
Please contact your tutor in the first instance if you would like to be refunded. If you do not receive a response, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information within 72 hours of the original lesson time:
· Date and time of lesson
· Reason for requested refund
· Name of your tutor
The refund option will be available for your payment only during the period of 90 (ninety) days from the date when your payment was made. The refund may be issued only for the unconfirmed lessons and/or remained hours. Arabie is not responsible for any kind of fee charged by payment systems and will not cover it when initiating a refund. To the fullest extent permitted by law, any refunds at any time are at our sole discretion only.
In case you forgot to claim your refund during the stated period, you can still use these funds and buy the appropriate amount of hours with any other tutor.
In case you chose a refund option, its speed and availability of refunded funds on your bank account will depend solely from the terms and policies of your bank regarding the speed of transactions.
Your refund may be issued only once. If you buy another lesson(s) at a later time, it will not be subject to the same refund request.
