This Refund Policy forms part of the Hard Skill Exchange Terms of Service.

  1. Refund Request. If you wish to request a refund, you must contact our support team within 4 hours prior to the start of your coaching session. In cases of an emergency, we will accept refund requests beyond the 4-hour window, provided that you present a verified doctor’s note. Circumstances in which a refund may be granted include:
    1. Cancellation Within Specified Timeframe: The user cancels their coaching session within the allowed cancellation period of within 4 hours of booking the session.
    2. Emergency Situations: The user provides a verified doctor’s note, police report or other verified documentation indicating that they had an emergency situation which prevented them from attending the coaching session.
    3. Technical Issues: There were significant technical problems on HSE’s side that prevented the user from participating in the coaching session.
    4. Coach Absence: The coach didn’t show up for the scheduled session, or canceled the session without prior notice.
    5. Payment Error: The user was charged an incorrect amount, was charged multiple times due to a system error, or there was another clear error with the payment.
    6. Inability to Reschedule: If the user or the coach has to cancel a session and a suitable time cannot be found to reschedule it, a refund may be issued.
    7. Failure to Deliver Service: If for any reason the coach fails to deliver the coaching session as planned and it’s not possible to reschedule, a refund could be issued.
    8. Unexpected Platform Outage: If there’s an unexpected outage or significant issue with the HSE platform that prevents a session from taking place as scheduled, a refund might be warranted.
