The Money Back Guarantee is offered on the following terms:

– The Money Back Guarantee is valid upto 3 (three) days from the date and time the login and password or an activation code (in case of a CD) is emailed/delivered by hand/phone or in any other manner to the student/customer, if the User has made the payment by doing a direct online bank transfer, cheque payment or made a payment to the EV Franchisee.
– The User will have to return the CD of the course within 3 (three) days to claim the Money Back Guarantee. The CD can be returned only to the Franchisee from which it was purchased.
