REFUNDS AND CANCELLATIONS

Classes are intended to occur as scheduled. Classes can be rescheduled or cancelled with Appropriate Notice. "Appropriate Notice" is at least 24 hours prior to the scheduled Lesson time. In the case of rescheduling or cancelling a Lesson, the rescheduling party must reschedule or cancel by contacting us at hello@ivywrite.com as soon as reasonably possible and at least 24 hours before the Lesson is scheduled to occur.


Payments are nonrefundable. There are no refunds or credits, including for missed classes. Following any subscription cancellation, however, you will continue to have access to the credits that you have purchased. At any time, and for any reason, we may provide a refund, discount, or other consideration to some or all of our members ("credits"). The amount and form of such credits, and the decision to provide them, are at our sole and absolute discretion. The provision of credits in one instance does not entitle you to credits in the future for similar instances, nor does it obligate us to provide credits in the future, under any circumstance.


If, following the Student's first Lesson, the Student is dissatisfied with that Lesson, the Student should contact hello@ivywrite.com within twenty-four (24) hours of the Lesson, and we will work with the Student to reschedule the Lesson, find a different Teacher, and/or refund the Lesson price. This does not apply in any case where the Student has already taken at least one lesson, misses a Lesson, or is late to a Lesson.


If a Student is more than ten minutes late to or does not attend a Lesson, and the Student has not rescheduled the Lesson, the Student will not receive any Refund for the Lesson.
We do not provide refunds for technical failures, power outages or unreliable internet connections beyond our control. If a Teacher is unable to provide a Lesson due to a Student’s (i) inadequate hardware or bandwidth or (ii) inappropriate conduct, IvyWrite generally will not provide a Refund to Student. And if a Student feels that a Teacher’s conduct renders the Lesson impossible, the Student should inform IvyWrite within twenty-four (24) hours. All such situations, and any discussions concerning Refunds stemming therefrom, will be handled on a case-by-case basis.
