As Oro is a digital product, as soon as you subscribe you have access to all the content available on the app. Therefore, you hereby acknowledge that your purchase cannot be revoked and that the seller is not obliged to provide you with a refund.
Refunds for the product shall only be given under exceptional circumstances:
If there is a technical issue that the Seller is responsible for, which has prevented you from ever accessing the Product.
If your subscription payment was not a genuine transaction (eg. card fraud).
If a duplicate subscription payment is made due to a technical fault. Genuine multiple orders by the same person are not eligible for a refund.
Change of mind or early termination:
Even if you made an accidental purchase, changed your mind, or realised that there are legitimate reasons why the product is not suitable for you, Oro will not be able to refund you. Terminating your subscription early does not give you the right to a refund of any unused portion of your subscription, even if you stop accessing the app before the date when your subscription was set to expire.
The product may be likely to present technical issues which relate to your divide and operating software, or other applications you have installed which can interfere with the product’s performance. Issues of this nature are not necessarily the result of an oversight during the product’s development and may therefore often be out of the seller’s control. Nonetheless, Oro will always strive to rectify these issues in a timely manner to ensure the product’s optimum performance for all customers. If the Seller is actively trying to resolve these technical issues, and these issues are not detrimental to the overall usage of the product, experiencing them will not constitute grounds for a refund.
