11. Terms of sale

11.1 Our Products and Services.

We offer Products and Services, including an IQ test followed by personalized results depending on each user’s answers, through the Platform and through social media pages maintained by the Company.

11.2 Payment.

All amounts due for purchases on the Platform are payable in full at the time of purchase as set out on the Platform. We may accept Visa, MasterCard and American Express credit and debit cards, direct withdrawal from your designated bank account and PayPal, (collectively, “Payment Method”). By submitting your order, you represent and warrant that you are authorized to use the designated Payment Method and authorize us to charge your order (including taxes) to that Payment Method. If the Payment Method cannot be verified, is invalid, or is otherwise not acceptable, your order may be suspended or cancelled automatically. 

11.3 Payment details and e-mail address with payments

Payments are collected via so-called Payment Service Providers. These are external companies that are set up to process financial transactions in a manner as secure as possible. Financial details, such as a bank account number or credit card number, are therefore shared only with them when payment is made, since we do not collect such data. When a payment via a Payment Service Provider is initiated, details about the order and payment are passed on to us. For example, the amount, a short product description, but also your e-mail address for communication about the payment and the payment process.

11.4 Pricing and Availability

All prices for Products and Services (and the associated costs for tax) are shown in currency depend on the region. Your credit card provider may impose foreign exchange fees, conversion fees and other. We are not responsible for such fees and will not reimburse you for any such fees incurred. All Products and Services are subject to availability and we reserve the right to impose limits on any order, to reject all or part of an order, and to discontinue the Products and Services without notice, even if you have already placed your order. The Company, at its sole discretion, may make promotional offers with different features and different rates to any of the Company’s customers. All prices are subject to change without notice. You agree that taxes may be adjusted from the amount shown on the payment screens. Several factors may cause this, such as variances between processor programs and changes in tax rates. 

11.5 Returns, Exchanges, And Refund Policy

Except for errors as stated below, all sales are FINAL due to the nature of the Products and Services. We provide a 100% satisfaction guarantee on all Services the Company provides.   

11.6 Errors

We attempt to be as accurate as possible; however, we do not warrant that all Product and Service descriptions, pricing, or other information on the Platform is accurate, complete, current, or error-free. In the event of an error, whether on this Website, in an order confirmation, in processing an order, in delivering a Product or Service or otherwise, we reserve the right to correct such error and revise your order accordingly, or to cancel your order and refund any amount charged. Your sole remedy in the event of an error, or if Products and Services offered by the Company are not as described or pictured, is to cancel your order and obtain a refund for the erroneous Products or Services.
