This Refund Policy (the "Refund Policy") covers the circumstances under which ASTC Trading (ASTC - The Publisher) may in its discretion provide refunds, and is part of our Terms. By using the website, you are accepting this Refund Policy. If you do not agree to the Refund Policy, please do not use the website.
ASTC may amend its Refund Policy at any time by posting a revised Refund Policy on the website, and/or sending information regarding the amendment to the email address you provide to ASTC. You shall be deemed to have accepted such amendments by continuing use of the website or of your Account after such amendments have been posted or information about such amendments has been sent to you.
The two types of refunds that ASTC provides are for (1) First Time Purchases and (2) Recurring Payments. Refunds are provided in the form of crediting your Account balance with funds that may be used for future purchases of Adverts. It can take up to 30 days (maximum) for ASTC to refund the Advertiser. The following is our Refund Policy for each type:
First Time Purchases:
The first time you make a purchase of an Advertisement via the website is a "First Time Purchase". You must read all of the details provided for the applicable Advert type (Gold Profile - free, Platinum Profile - £20 per month (unlimited), Diamond Profile - £50 per month (44 adverts available), Diamond Plus Profile - £100 per month (10 adverts available) and be sure that you fully understand exactly what you are purchasing - including but not limited to the price, location on the website, number of Adverts sold of that Advert type.
We will consider such a request on a case-by-case basis if your First Time Purchase meets the following criteria:
- You must notify us of your request within 14 days
- You purchased two Adverts of the same Advert type by accident
- The Publisher changed the location of the Adverts on its website during your purchase
Adverts are sold through the website, with each Advert renewing every 30 days. When you purchase an advert you are setting up a recurring payment that will continue to automatically renew and re-bill every 30 days until it is cancelled. All Payments are recurring monthly, every 30 days.The dates that your Advert will automatically renew and re-bill are indicated in your Account as the "Next Bill Date." Each payment, other than your initial payment for the first time purchase, is a "Recurring Payment." If you wish to cancel an Advert, you must do so at least 24 hours before the date it is scheduled to automatically renew and re-bill i.e. if your Next Bill Date is 15 February 2014, and you do not want your Advert to continue, then you must cancel your Advert no later than 13 February 2014. If you do not cancel your Advert on time, we will consider a refund request for a Recurring Payment on a case by case basis. In addition, your Recurring Payment must meet the following criteria:
- This was your first Recurring Payment using the website and you did not realize (although it is stated at checkout) that you were paying for the Advert(s) and were unaware that the Advert(s) would renew if not timely cancelled;
- There was a documented software error that prevented your Advert(s) from being cancelled.
How to request consideration for a refund. Just send an email to email@example.com with the following details: advert id, the email address on your account and the reasons why you would like us to consider a refund. ASTC will consider granting refunds that are requested in the above stated time frames and that meet the applicable criteria, and will grant refunds at its reasonable discretion. Nothing herein grants an obligation by ASTC to grant a refund.
