Both ShareThePoint and you, the client, have the right to terminate any services agreement for any reason, including the ending of services that are already underway.

Any monies that have been paid to ShareThePoint which constitute payment for services, shall be refunded.

ShareThePoint requires a minimum of 24 hours’ notice of any cancellation to a pre-registered course or event by an attendee or participant. Notification in person, via email, telephone, text or SMS, or any other means will be accepted, subject to confirmation via email.

Refunds will be processed up to 30 days before the event, less any fees incurred (unless an individual contract is in place which would override this refund policy). Refunds for any other services provided will be detailed under the relevant individual contract. Any cancellations after this date may incur an administration fee, as detailed under the “Refund Policy” when registering for each event. Course fees are non-refundable for anything less than 5 days prior to the event. Substitutions can be made at any time.

Our refund method is either Internet Banking or Cheque.
