SUBSCRIPTION RENEWALS

 

In order for our esteemed users to gain continuous access to our services, Ghsocial automatically renews all paid subscriptions for the Services on the date such subscriptions expire.

You have the right to cancel your subscription within 14 days without giving any reason. The cancellation period will expire after 14 days from your purchase of the subscription. If you have benefited from a free account, the cancellation period will expire 14 days from the beginning of your free account.

 

To exercise the right to cancel a subscription purchased through the Ghsocial Website during the 14 day cancellation period referred to in the paragraph above, you must inform us (Ghsocial, P.O. Box ML 831, Mallam – Accra, Ghana, or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.), of your decision to cancel by a clear statement (e.g. a letter sent by post or an email). You may use our contact form, but it is not obligatory. If you use this option, we will communicate to you an acknowledgment of receipt of such cancellation on a durable medium (e.g. by e-mail) without delay.

If you cancel your subscription within the 14 day cancellation period as described above, Ghsocial will refund you a pro-rata amount of the subscription fee for the unused period of your subscription. However, as you agreed for the Ghsocial service to commence during the cancellation period, you will still be required to pay a subscription fee for the period of your subscription until you communicated to us your cancellation, (excluding any free trial period where no payment was taken) and

 

 

6 | P a g e

Ghsocial will therefore not refund you for that portion of your subscription.

We will issue the refund using the same means of payment as you used for the initial transaction, unless you have expressly agreed otherwise; in any event, you will not incur any fees as a result of the refund. If you cancel during a free trial, you will not receive a refund as no payment will have been taken.

 

Ghsocial reserves the right to close your account (whether you are a paid subscriber or have a free account) at any time for any reason with or without notice to you. If you have paid a subscription fee for the Ghsocial Service and Ghsocial closes your account, Ghsocial will give you a pro-rata refund of any subscription fee you have paid in advance.
