(The Mermaid’s Wisdom) provides you the convenience of using our automatic draft service. In the event, you want to cancel your subscription of any of (The Mermaid’s Wisdom) ’s services, you shall provide written notice through the “Contact Us” section of the website. This is the only accepted method of cancellation. (The Mermaid’s Wisdom) requires 30 business day notice before the auto-renew date of your program. Should you cancel within the 30-business day window you will be subject to another monthly, 3, 6, 9, or 12-month subscription of your program (depending on the payment option you chose upon enrollment into the program). For example, if you signed up for a 12-month program and you fail to cancel by the 30-business day cancellation deadline, your program will be renewed for another 12 months and your card will be charged accordingly. Please allow up to 30 business days to cancel the automatic draft service.
Also, please note that if you choose to cancel a monthly subscription to a program prior to the end of your chosen term (for example, if you subscribe for a 6-month term and desire to cancel in your 4th month of service) you will be charged a cancellation fee of 95% of the remaining balance on your program.
For example, if you subscribe to Silver Membership to 6 months of Small Group Training for Women at $660.00 per month and your billing date is on the 30th of the month, but you send a WRITTEN cancellation via the “Contact Us” page on the 13th of the month in the 4th month of your program, then that means you leave 2 months outstanding on your 6-month agreement. Upon receipt of your written cancellation via the “Contact Us” page, your card will be IMMEDIATELY charged 95% of ($660.00 x 2) $1320.00, which will be a total of $1,254.00. If you were to send a written cancellation via the “Contact Us” page on the 17th of the month, your card will be charged the full price of one more month of service, PLUS 95% of the remaining balance. So, you would be charged $660.00 + 95% of the remaining month of service ($660.00) which would be $627.00 for a total of $1,287.00.
Our cancellation policy is non-negotiable under any circumstances.
