Privacy Policy
We take your privacy and security very seriously. We will never pass any of your details on to third parties for any purpose, except when we are required to by law enforcement agencies.
We only ask the details that we need to know. It is entirely at your discretion if you wish to tell us anything else. Online transactions are handled through SSL-secured servers and sensitive details such as passwords and credit card details are encrypted to reduce the risk of fraud. We strongly advise that you use hard-to-guess, unique passwords for your accounts with us to reduce the risk of fraud.
We will send you updates on our services and details on any events to which you signup. We may also notify you of updates to our services, and send greetings on special occasions. If you would like to opt-out of these emails, please let us know when signing up.

Payment
Yearly membership will be paid for one year in advance. This membership will expire in at the end of that academic year, and can not be continued onto the next.

Life membership is billed once, and membership does not expire.

Cancellation of membership can be made at any time. You will be removed from the system within 7 working days. We do not offer refunds or a money-back policy.
