2.0 PRODUCTS

The products offered through payment on Simplifying Theory are for personal use and not transferable. This means that under no circumstances is it permitted to distribute, publish, reproduce, license or sell such products.

These products shall be purchased through payment platforms such as Hotmart and/or PayPal. Access to possible products involving video classes shall be made online, within a platform where access is restricted by passwords. From this moment forth, the Simplifying Theory site shall not be held responsible for the processes carried out on these platforms, but does indeed commit itself to helping wherever possible, for the perfect execution of operations with regard to payment and to receipt/use of the material as shown in the pages that promote the products. Should the user make the payment, the site then commits itself to making the material available, as promised. Should there be any impossibility of problem in this regard, then the site agrees to return the money paid by the user concerned. The passwords received for access to video class materials are personal and not transferrable, being considered as products and governed by the same rules that govern any other product traded through the site. The Simplifying Theory site does not take any responsibility in cases where the password sent has been mislaid or lost.

The Simplifying Theory site reserves the right to change the access passwords at any time, with the new passwords being informed to the existing users, and respecting the period of validity as established when the product was purchased.

The Simplifying Theory site does not take on any commitment with regard to the quality of the services provided by the hosting service where the site is hosted. The user is well aware that the visualisation of the video classes depends on the speed and permanence of the connection of their Internet provider, as also the site’s hosting quality.

Simplifying Theory may, but does not have to, increase a user’s period of access if the user is not able to access the material for very long periods because of interruptions caused by faults in the site’s hosting, provided this is informed and explained by sending an e-mail to: simplifyingtheoryteam@gmail.com

2.1 TIME FRAMES FOR DELIVERY

The time frame for delivery of the digital booklet after due confirmation and receipt of payment is automatic, and is managed by the Hotmart payment platform. If the user does not receive the digital booklet after this time frame has elapsed, then the user shall then send an e-mail to Contact Us and report the problem. In this case, the Simplifying Theory team shall do its utmost to solve the problem and deliver the product in the shortest possible time, also agreeing to make a full refund of the sum paid should the user request this.

2.2 PAYMENT

After choosing the product, the user must then follow the checkout for payment using the Hotmart system. The user will then be redirected to an external website, with guaranteed security and responsibility, guaranteed by the respective means of electronic payment for the execution of the transaction.

Hotmart shall inform the user about the status of his or her payment, which must also be verified by the Simplifying Theory team. If the transaction is cancelled or is not confirmed, then Simplifying Theory shall then have the right to cancel the user’s order.
