You agree to Talisium, or its third-party payment provider, storing and accessing your payment information. You also agree to pay the applicable fees for the services or products you purchase through the Talisium Services as they become due, whether on a one-time, instalment, or subscription basis. Fees may vary based on your location, the type of Payment Method used, where your Payment Method was issued, or other contractual arrangements. Your transaction with us may be subject to foreign exchange fees or differences in prices, including because of exchange rates. Talisium does not support all payment methods, currencies or locations for payment and may vary such offerings from time to time. Additionally, you understand and agree that not all promotions and pricing are available to all Students, and that specific additional terms and conditions may apply to certain promotional programs, pricing, or geographic locations.
Term-Based Payments: For Online Courses that are provided on a term basis, there will be a fee for each term set forth on the applicable Online Course information and enrolment page. Payment requirements may be flat-fee and upfront for each term or in instalments as indicated on the applicable Online Course enrolment page. In some instances, you will be permitted to pre-enrol in an Online Course before the Online Course commences on the Website(s).
Except as otherwise required by law or subject to contractual obligations, Users enrolling in term-based programs have seven (7) days from the first date the Online Course begins in any individual segment to disenrol and request a full refund by going to your account settings and canceling or by contacting us at [email protected]
. Fees paid for such programs are thereafter non-refundable for that Term, even if the User selected to pay for the term in instalments. For a multi-term program, you may be subject to enrolment obligations for additional terms. To the extent you choose to enrol in further terms for a program, the same seven (7) day disenrolment option shall apply to each term. Please note that, for multi-term programs, if you do not complete all terms, you may not eligible to receive a credential of completion if you do not complete and pay for the full program. Please reviews the specific terms of each program for any such requirements. After the seven (7) days, you are still able to disenrol at any time by going to your account settings, however, you will lose access to certain Services and features and shall not receive a refund.
Subscription Based Payments: BY SELECTING A SUBSCRIPTION BASED ENROLMENT, YOU EXPRESSLY AUTHORISE Talisium TO AUTOMATICALLY CHARGE THE APPLICABLE RECURRING MONTHLY FEE AND ANY AND ALL APPLICABLE TAXES TO YOUR PAYMENT METHOD UNLESS AND UNTIL YOU DISENROL, ARE REMOVED, OR GRADUATE. For any Services or products that are provided on a subscription basis, unless otherwise specified upon enrolment, your Payment Method will be authorised for up to approximately one month service charges once your Online Course begins. In some instances, your available balance or credit limit may be reduced to reflect the authorization however, no charges will be made against the Payment Method unless you do not disenrol prior to the end of the seven (7) day disenrolment period. You may not receive a notice from us that your seven (7) day disenrolment period has ended or that the subscription-based payments have begun. Your subscription will continue on a month-to-month basis with recurring payments unless and until you disenrol, are removed, or graduate. You agree to pay the then current applicable monthly payment.
Each month, the monthly fee will automatically be billed on the date your seven (7) day disenrolment period ends (“Billing Date”) For example, if you begin a paid subscription on January 1st, the seven (7) day disenrolment period will end on January 7th, you will be charged on January 8th for the first month and your Billing Date will be the 8th of each subsequent month until you disenrol or are removed from the Online Course or graduate. For certain months, your Billing Date may vary slightly if your Billing Date does not have a corresponding date the next month – for example if the first charge was made on January 31st you will be billed on February 28th. Failure to pay may result in the termination of your subscription.
Currently, your subscription to Talisium products or Services may start with a free trial. The length of the free trial period for any of your subscriptions will last for the period of time specified during your sign-up. Free trials for any products or services may not be combined with certain other offers when specified in the offer language. If you have subscribed to a particular paid service or product within the last six (6) months, or if your Payment Method, physical address or email address has been associated with an account for that paid service, you are not eligible to receive a free trial for that service or product. If you begin your subscription with a free trial, we will begin billing your Payment Method for monthly membership fees at the end of the free trial period of your subscription unless you cancel prior to the end of the free trial period by contacting [email protected]
. Your Payment Method will be authorised for up to approximately one month of service as soon as you register for a free trial. In some instances, your available balance or credit limit may be reduced to reflect the authorisation; however, no charges will be made against the Payment Method unless if you cancel prior to the end of your free trial period.
Your subscription will continue unless and until you graduate, terminate your subscription, or we terminate it. You may terminate your subscription by contacting us at [email protected]
and requesting to be disenroled in a particular Online Course or by going to your account settings and disenroling from the Online Course. You must disenrol from an Online Course prior to the last day of your previous billing period in order to avoid being billed for the next period’s monthly fee. If you choose to disenrol from an Online Course, you may use the Online Course until the end of the current period but will not be issued a refund for the most recently (or previously) charged monthly fees. At the end of the then-current period, you will lose access to certain Services and features.
When you graduate from an Online Course before your next Billing Date, you will not be billed for the next period’s monthly fee. After graduation, you will lose access to certain Services and features as further set forth in the applicable program FAQs and/or details.
If you cancel your subscription at any time before the Online Course begins, you will not be charged, but you may be ineligible for certain promotions and pricing in the future. For example, you cannot be awarded a Verified Certificate or similar certification during your free trial period because you must pay for at least one (1) month of an Online Course subscription to be eligible for a Verified Certificate in that Online Course in addition to the completion requirements set forth above. In the case of certain programs, you must pay for no less than one (1) month of Online Courses and meet all of the other current requirements to obtain promotional pricing, rebates or discounts.
We reserve the right to modify, terminate, or otherwise amend the fees and features associated with your subscription. If we notify you in advance of at least fifteen (15) days, your continued use of Talisium and the Online Course after the changes have been made will constitute your acceptance of the changes. If you do not wish to continue subscribing with the new fees or features, you may terminate your subscription by disenroling. If you accept the new subscription, its terms and conditions with these Terms will apply for all future months.
Refunds: Other than stated above for each form of enrolment, you hereby acknowledge and agree that Talisium will not offer refunds on any fees and charges related to your purchase of any products or Services. This includes any partially used or unused periods for which you have already paid. We do not guarantee refunds for lack of usage or dissatisfaction. For subscription-based enrolments, upon the termination of your subscription—whether by disenrolment or graduation—you will not be charged for future monthly fees. However, you will not be issued a refund for the most recently (or any previously) charged fees. If you purchase any Online Course or Service through a mobile purchase or third-party marketplace (e.g., in-app purchases through the Apple App Store, Android App Store or purchases made through certain alternative payment services), the refund policy applicable to that third-party marketplace will apply, unless otherwise explicitly stated by Talisium. Except as otherwise explicitly stated by Talisium, the third-party marketplace will be solely responsible for making refunds under its refund policy, and Talisium will have no refund obligations. Talisium disclaims any responsibility or liability related to any third-party marketplace's refund policy or the third party's compliance or noncompliance with such policy.
