10. Fees and refunds
You agree to pay the fees, in such amount and for such billing frequency as specified during registration, in full prior to any obligation of Kwala to perform under this Agreement. You further agree that, upon registering for the services through the Site, you authorize Kwala to charge your method of payment (e.g. credit card) for the fee on each anniversary of your registration date, based upon your billing frequency (e.g. monthly, quarterly, annually). Payment of the fees shall be in such amounts and at such times as set forth by Kwala through information provided to you and as authorized through the sign-up and registration process. Your account and access to the services provided via the Site may be suspended in the event of non-payment of applicable fees. You represent and warrant to Kwala that such payment information is accurate and that you are authorized to use the payment instrument. You will promptly update your account information with any changes (for example, a change in your billing address or credit card expiration date) that may occur.
You may cancel your subscription with Kwala at any time. Upon cancellation, you will continue to have access to the Kwala services through the end of the then current month. Kwala may change its fees from time to time by posting the changes on the Site with 5 days’ prior notice, but with no advance notice required for temporary promotions or reductions in fees.
You may request a refund within the first 30 days of a purchase of any subscription plan under the following conditions:
- You did not use the service
- You qualify for our Satisfaction Guarantee
To qualify for our Satisfaction Guarantee you must:
- Attempt at least 2 unique design task requests that are within our scope of work
- Provide us with clear direction and feedback during the design process, with at least 2 attempts each to correct the designs to your satisfaction
Beyond the 30 day window there are no refunds for partial subscription plans under any circumstance, including cancellations and unused time on a plan. Upon cancellation you will have access to our service for the length of your current billing cycle.
10.5 Annual Subscription Plan
If you join our annual subscription plan, the same terms and conditions apply for refund requests as outlined in clause 10. Kwala may decide at the sole discretion we will grant a refund for any unused period of time if you qualify for the satisfaction guarantee or no longer need the service. We will calculate from the date of the next calendar month where your monthly subscription would be billed and issue any outstanding refunds, minus the amount which the yearly plan is discounted by at the time of purchase.
If Kwala monthly price was $329 at the time of purchase and you purchased on January 20th a yearly plan for the price of $3290 which would include 2 months free. You then decide and are granted a refund for the outstanding amount on July 12th. we would calculate 6 months used (6x $329=$1974) and 2 months discounted (2x$329=$658), then deduct the two totals from the yearly purchase price as shown in this example $3290, therefore your refund would equal $3290-$1974-$658 equates to $658.
If Kwala is not fulfilling the standard Service Level Agreement by failing to complete revisions in a reasonable timeframe, or the standard was consistently of a poor quality, and after allowing your designer and Kwala a reasonable time to correct as outlined in the satisfaction guarantee and Service Agreement you would be entitled to request a refund for any unused subscription fees, without penalty. A reasonable time to correct any major issues with the service would be no more than 28 days.
Whilst we would aim to keep your dedicated designer and account manager the same throughout your subscription, there may be times due to operational reasons this may not happen, such as if the individual left Kwala, therefore the persons you are working with may either at your request or Kwala’s discretion change. If Kwala terminated your membership at any reason you would be entitled to a refund for any unused subscription, without penalty
