- In circumstances whereby a customer requests the transfer of a domain ownership, a transfer fee of $95 is required to be paid by the customer prior to the transfer.
- All packages are billed monthly or quarterly in advance. Once the initial period paid for has come to an end (i.e., either the month or quarter selected by the client), the package will automatically renew on the same basis (the same time period and package), unless the client expressly requests a change is made to this arrangement within at least 48 hours of the billing date.
- No refunds or credits for partial months of service are granted, nor upgrade/downgrade refunds, or refunds for months unused with an active account.
- Refunds can only be granted if the content of the emails has not been significantly changed at the customers express request, as such changes, which deviate from the email copy created and provided by bant.io, can impact considerably on the overall results of the campaign.
- In the event of clients failing to receive the number of leads guaranteed in the package purchased, bant.io will continue the campaign at their expense, including additional leads and/or newly written email copy, until bant.io delivers the number of leads specified by the package. This applies to every month of the campaign.
Should bant.io fail to make up the shortfall in leads within the specified timeframes detailed above, the client can request an immediate refund. Eligible refunds must be submitted by email (email@example.com) within a maximum of 14 days once the refund eligibility period starts.N.B., a quota of leads is guaranteed for each month as per the package selected by the client. If there is a shortfall in a given month, then only the number of leads which were not delivered is added to the next month’s quota i.e., additional leads are supplied in the next month to make up the shortfall in a previous month in addition to the guaranteed number of leads required in a given month.
- In the first month, bant.io will use an additional 30 days (60 days in total) following the deployment of the campaign (i.e., after it has been set up and the client has approved it) to make up the shortfall.
- In subsequent months, the additional 30 days used to make up a shortfall in leads is calculated from the billing date of a given month.
Please note that the client agrees the qualifying criteria for hot leads in discussion with their dedicated account manager during campaign set-up. The guarantee is subsequently based on ensuring that the leads – companies bant.io reach out to that respond with interest to our offer – match the criteria set in the client profiles during campaign set up.
- In circumstances whereby a new campaign has been set up and the customer requests a refund prior to the campaign’s commencement, bant.io reserves the right to charge the customer with a setup fee, which amounts to 50% of the cost of the plan purchased.
- bant.io reserves the right to terminate or suspend an account for non-payment of the subscription dues.
- All fees are exclusive of all taxes, levies, or duties imposed by taxing authorities, and you shall be responsible for payment of all such taxes, levies, or duties.
