There are several payment processing options Visitors and Users may select when using the Service:
• Secure online credit card (those accepted by Stripe, as Stripe is the processor)
• Any other payment method accepted by Stripe
You are entitled to a refund for only 14 calendar days after a payment has been processed. The refund amount is strictly limited to the amount paid in your most recent invoice. This policy exists strictly as a courtesy for first-time customers, and for return customers who forgot to cancel their subscription. Refunds are not granted under any other circumstances. We extend every opportunity to you to test our software and services to ensure that you are satisfied with them, including full-featured, no-commitment trials of our software and services.
Refunds are only processed by request from you. They are not determined automatically and you must submit refund requests in writing by email, which you can conveniently do on the contact page of our website.
In the event that you request and receive a refund, your access to the services will terminated immediately, your account will be scheduled for permanent deletion immediately, all obligations we have to you regarding our services are terminated immediately and your licenses and rights to our services and other related products, such as our software, are forefit immediately. This is because we assume that if you want a refund, you no longer want our products and services.
Refunds come at a cost to us that is a pure, out-of-pocket loss when processed due to the fees and maintenance involved. We don't mind incurring this cost from time to time because customer satisfaction is the sole thing we want to achieve. However, strictly to protect ourselves, we reserve the right to refuse and not respond to frivilous or vexatious refund requests.
An non-encompassing example of a frivilous or vexatious request would be someone attempting to abuse the 14 day policy by purchasing and cancelling and receiving a refund, then re-purchasing and re-cancelling and requesting a refund again 13 days later. Such a request would be denied and the individual would be permanently barred from accessing our services after their newly purchased subscription runs out.
Ultimately, we will exclusively decide what does and does not constitute a frivilous or vexatious refund request.
We offer a hassle-free 7-day Trial Period. During the Trial Period, Users may use the software for the purposes of decrypting, monitoring and modifying their web traffic. The User must be the owner or authorized user by which the Trial software is downloaded. Certain restrictions apply to the Trial software.
