Book Payments and refunds

Nil Coalescing Limited, in its sole and absolute discretion, will allow for a refund (partial or full) of the Retail Price of any Digital Book purchased within 60 days from the Buyer’s date of purchase for any of the following reasons:

  • If the transaction is proven to be fraudulent or unauthorised.
  • In order for Nil Coalescing Limited to comply with applicable industry or other contractual requirements, (Stripe's terms of service).
  • For any reason Nil Coalescing Limited deems appropriate.

Due to the nature of Digital Book sales, when a Buyer requests a refund, the Buyer may retain a copy of the Book and, in many cases, will already have received a benefit from the Digital Book prior to issuance of the refund. In such cases, Nil Coalescing Limited, in its sole and absolute discretion, may issue a refund for less than the full Retail Price of such Digital Book.

It is the Buyer’s sole responsibility to appropriately handle, remove or destroy any Digital Good or Physical Product that may cause Buyer to: (i) incur additional liability, including, but not limited to, criminal and/or civil liability; or (ii) experience additional adverse effects, including, but not limited to, potential privacy, security, or technical vulnerabilities.
