- Publications and programs bought at the pre-launch stage or Beta stage (testing, review and refinements stage) shall be usually eligible for replacement, partial refund and / or combination of both.

- We do not have a policy of giving FREE SAMPLE, REVIEW COPY, over and above information, FAQ, preview material, etc. that has been provided with dedicated page for the said products, publication and programs.
