You must cancel your subscription before your monthly renewal date to avoid the next billing.

If you cancel your subscription, the cancellation will be effective at the end of the current monthly period; you will have continued access to your subscription for the remainder of that period, but you will not receive a refund.

No refund will be made if users change the originality of the device by unlocking it or encrypting it and an immediate ban on all the services will be applied to the user.

Old study Material store does not include EACAD’S products and EAcad is not responsible for refunds related to such products. All the products are added by site members and we receive a 5% commission on that. For such transactions, it is advisable to order products using cash on a delivery system.
