For more information about PayPal, please visit www.paypal.com.

Payment Method

The terms of your payment will be based on your Payment Method and may be determined by agreements between you and PayPal (www.paypal.com), as well as the financial institution, credit card issuer or other provider of your chosen Payment Method assessed through PayPal (the "Payment Method Provider"). If RUVENECO Inc. does not receive payment from PayPal through your Payment Method Provider, you agree to pay all amounts due on your Billing Account upon demand. PayPal may also have certain rights if it does not receive payment from your Payment Method Provider; please review PayPal's policies for more information (www.paypal.com).

Authorization

Except as explained in this Payments Policy, your non-termination or continued use of the Service reaffirms that RUVENECO Inc. is authorized to charge your Payment Method.

Neither PayPal (www.paypal.com) nor RUVENECO Inc. waives its rights to seek payment directly from you. Your charges may be payable in advance, in arrears, per usage, or as otherwise described when you subscribed to the Service or as may apply for returning users after having put their accounts on hold.

Putting Your Account On Hold

Your subscription can be managed on the Website, including accessing Unsubscribe instructions, by going to "Account".

If you are a PayPal account holder and put your recurring payments on hold or otherwise stop payments through your PayPal account (www.paypal.com), we may treat your account as canceled rather than simply on hold. See Subscription Cancellation below for more information.

Please note that once you have put your account on hold, you will not be able to access certain features of the Website that were available to you as a paying subscriber. To reactivate your account, go to "Account".

Please note that RUVENECO Inc. reserves the right to completely deactivate any accounts that are put on hold for a period greater than three months. If your account is deactivated because you have exceeded the three month period, you may be required to resubscribe and pay the initiation fee again at the then current subscription rate, along with recurring billing at the then current subscription rate.

Subscription Cancellation

Your subscription can be managed on the Website, including directions for canceling your account, by going to "Account".

If you cancel your subscription, you must notify PayPal of your cancellation. You are responsible for any fees incurred or otherwise due prior to cancellation as stated in this Payments Policy.

If you are a PayPal account holder and put your recurring payments on hold or otherwise stop payments through your PayPal account (www.paypal.com), we may cancel your subscription and deactivate your account on our Website so that you will no longer be able to access it through the Website.

Refunds and Credits

There will be no refunds issued for any recurring billing period after the first 30 days of your subscription have elapsed, including, but not limited to, if you reactivate your account after it has been placed on hold. If you cancel your subscription and then decide to rejoin at a later time, you will have to pay the initiation fee again; however, you may put your account on hold through the Website and simply take it off hold to avoid paying the initiation fee again, if you decide to voluntarily suspend your usage of the subscription, except that there may be a time limit imposed for this type of on-hold status. See Putting Your Account On Hold above for more information.

Any payments you make to us for any of our products and services will be made through PayPal. PayPal has its own terms and conditions for usage, which can be viewed by visiting www.paypal.com.

All purchases you make are final. If you cancel your subscription or put it on hold, you may use your subscription until the end of your then-current subscription term as set forth in this Payments Policy. You will not be eligible for a prorated refund of any portion of the subscription fee paid for the then-current subscription period, whether you put your account on hold or cancel it as explained in this Payments Policy.

Refunds, if any, will be typically requested by RUVENECO Inc. from PayPal within seven (7) to ten (10) business days of the notice of cancellation. PayPal, based on its policies and the method of payment you chose, will determine the actual amount of time required to issue the refund and the manner in which the refund will be issued.

Surcharges, if any, charged by PayPal will not be refunded to you, unless PayPal's policy so permits. Visit www.paypal.com for information on PayPal's refund policies.

No refunds will be given if, for any reason, you violate the terms of service as outlined in the User Agreement.

Billing Errors

RUVENECO Inc. strives to avoid billing errors. However, if you believe that there has been a billing error, please contact RUVENECO Inc. at help@mcat-prep.com.
