Important: Except as required by law, payments are non-refundable, including fees and other charges. Please see additional details below.
The Business Briefcase Subscriptions
The Business Briefcase subscriptions are non-refundable. If you cancel your subscription, all of your subscription features will expire at the end of your billing cycle.
Individual The Business Briefcase E-courses
We allow learners a 30-day refund guarantee on the purchase of individual The Business Briefcase courses. However, the courses become non-refundable after the one-month period. Courses will generally remain available for as long as you keep you’re the Business Briefcase account, unless otherwise specified during checkout. On rare occasions we may need to remove certain courses for legal or other reasons. We reserve the right to update courses without offering a refund or exchange.
Under the laws applicable in your jurisdiction, you may qualify for a refund. For example, if you’re using our services for yourself (instead of on behalf of a business):
1. Citizens of the European Union are entitled to a full refund during the 14 days after the subscription begins. Note: This 14-day period begins when the subscription service starts. For example, if you signed up for a one-month free trial, the period begins on the first day of your free trial, so there will be no fees paid as a refund.
2. If you believe your situation warrants an exception, you can submit your account for review.
