Pricing Reviews and Variation
RetailSector reviews subscription price points regularly, and may increase or decrease the advertised sale price of any subscription plan at any time, without notice.
To avoid multiple 'tiers' of legacy pricing among existing Users, all existing Users' plans shall track (be the same as) the publicly advertised price, and this means Users’ bills may go up or down when their next automatic-renewal charge is made.
All Users are automatically sent an invoice/receipt by email when their subscription term renews and payment is taken from their account. If the User does not agree to continuing his or her subscription under the new pricing specified in their most recent invoice, User may claim a refund, as long as the claim is submitted to RetailSector within 60 days of the new charge being made.
All refunds will be for the full amount of the invoice in question, and result in cancellation of your subscription. Claims should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
We do not offer pro-rata refunds or allow individual subscribers to retain legacy pricing.
Once 60 days have elapsed since the transaction date, User may only cancel his or her subscription in accordance with the standard cancellation policy, and no refund will be offered.
User may cancel their RetailSector subscription in writing to email@example.com or by using the Cancel Account option in their Account Dashboard. Refunds will be provided, on a pro-rata basis, only where User has less than six months of their annual subscription remaining. RetailSector reserves the right to retain at least six months of the annual subscription fee for administration and other costs.
RetailSector honours the intellectual property rights of others and asks the same of Users of the Site. RetailSector may, in its sole discretion, terminate the accounts or access rights of Users whose actions infringe or otherwise violate the intellectual property rights of others. If you believe your work has been infringed, please provide RetailSector with the following information:
- A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed;
- Identification of the copyright work claimed to have been infringed or, if multiple copyrighted works at a single online site are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works at that site;
- Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled, and information reasonably sufficient to permit RetailSector to identify the material;
- Information that is reasonably sufficient to permit RetailSector to contact the complaining party, such as address, telephone number and, if available, e-mail address;
- A statement that the complaining party has a good faith belief that use of the material in a manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and
- A statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.
