Note from the founder:
I dislike legalese. All that matters is for everyone to play nice. The aim is for you, me, and everyone else involved to succeed. Just harmony.
However, for those that intend to break the rules and are inclined to mischief, read the Terms below!
These include notes on each of our rights and responsibilities, including refund policy for any products and services I currently offer. I will update the terms as and when I launch new products or services to ensure everything is fair in this land. As with everything, should you have any disagreements, do take time to get on a call with me to ensure we amicably solve the challenge.
To your best higher education!
Terms and conditions
These terms and conditions (“Terms”, “Agreement”) are an agreement between Admissions Roadmap (“admissionsroadmap.com”, “admissionsroadmap”, “Admissions Roadmap”) and you (“User”, “you” or “your”). This Agreement sets forth the general terms and conditions of your use of the admissionsroadmap.com website and any of its products or services (collectively, “Website” or “Services”).
Accounts and membership
You must be at least 18 years of age to use this Website. By using this Website and by agreeing to this Agreement you warrant and represent that you are at least 18 years of age. If you create an account on the Website, you are responsible for maintaining the security of your account and you are fully responsible for all activities that occur under the account and any other actions taken in connection with it. We may, but have no obligation to, monitor and review new accounts before you may sign in and use our Services. Providing false contact information of any kind may result in the termination of your account. You must immediately notify us of any unauthorized uses of your account or any other breaches of security. We will not be liable for any acts or omissions by you, including any damages of any kind incurred as a result of such acts or omissions. We may suspend, disable, or delete your account (or any part thereof) if we determine that you have violated any provision of this Agreement or that your conduct or content would tend to damage our reputation and goodwill. If we delete your account for the foregoing reasons, you may not re-register for our Services. We may block your email address and Internet protocol address to prevent further registration.
We do not own any data, information or material (“Content”) that you submit on the Website in the course of using the Service. You shall have sole responsibility for the accuracy, quality, integrity, legality, reliability, appropriateness, and intellectual property ownership or right to use of all submitted Content. We may monitor and review Content on the Website submitted or created using our Services by you. You grant us permission to access, copy, distribute, store, transmit, reformat, display and perform the Content of your user account solely as required for the purpose of providing the Services to you. Without limiting any of those representations or warranties, we have the right, though not the obligation, to, in our own sole discretion, refuse or remove any Content that, in our reasonable opinion, violates any of our policies or is in any way harmful or objectionable. You also grant us the license to use, reproduce, adapt, modify, publish or distribute the Content created by you or stored in your user account for commercial, marketing or any similar purpose.
Billing and payments
You shall pay all fees or charges to your account in accordance with the fees, charges, and billing terms in effect at the time a fee or charge is due and payable. Where Services are offered on a free trial basis, payment may be required after the free trial period ends, and not when you enter your billing details (which may be required prior to the commencement of the free trial period). If auto-renewal is enabled for the Services you have subscribed for, you will be charged automatically in accordance with the term you selected. If, in our judgment, your purchase constitutes a high-risk transaction, we will require you to provide us with a copy of your valid government-issued photo identification, and possibly a copy of a recent bank statement for the credit or debit card used for the purchase. We reserve the right to change products and product pricing at any time. We also reserve the right to refuse any order you place with us. We may, in our sole discretion, limit or cancel quantities purchased per person, per household or per order. These restrictions may include orders placed by or under the same customer account, the same credit card, and/or orders that use the same billing and/or shipping address. In the event that we make a change to or cancel an order, we may attempt to notify you by contacting the e-mail and/or billing address/phone number provided at the time the order was made.
Accuracy of information
Occasionally there may be information on the Website that contains typographical errors, inaccuracies or omissions that may relate to promotions and offers. We reserve the right to correct any errors, inaccuracies or omissions, and to change or update information or cancel orders if any information on the Website or on any related Service is inaccurate at any time without prior notice (including after you have submitted your order). We undertake no obligation to update, amend or clarify information on the Website including, without limitation, pricing information, except as required by law. No specified update or refresh date applied on the Website should be taken to indicate that all information on the Website or on any related Service has been modified or updated.

Our policy is valid for a period of 7 calendar days from the date of the purchase of the Product/Service. If you are not satisfied with the service for any reason you can ask for a refund. A pro-rated refund may be issued for the unused portion of the service. If the period of 7 days has elapsed since the purchase, we can’t, unfortunately, offer you a refund.
A refund request will grant us permission to look in your account and analyze our records to assess how much of our product or service you’ve utilized, and only grant refunds after a thorough assessment is complete. We do this to ensure that persons using our digital products may sign-up to our platform and utilize most or all of the advice provided within the 7 day period, and then pose as an unhappy customer asking for their money back. We trust that most customers/people don’t sign-up for our products or services with these intentions, but we’ve found that serial offenders often use the same tactic, and we want to ensure that our company is protected for those who may want to take advantage of the refund clause.
The following criteria must be met to qualify for a refund:
- Customer’s account must be in good standing
- Product/Service must not be used
- Product/Service malfunctions or doesn’t work as described
If the conditions listed above are not met, we reserve the right not to issue a refund. It’s important to keep in mind that there is often a difference between a service that doesn’t work and a situation where you are receiving an error message. Error messages could be related to an incorrect setup, configuration or software and as a result the service is not working.
Please note that any additional services, custom work or technical support are non-refundable as our time cannot be recovered.
In addition to other terms as set forth in the Agreement, you are prohibited from using the Website or its Content: (a) for any unlawful purpose; (b) to solicit others to perform or participate in any unlawful acts; (c) to violate any international, federal, provincial or state regulations, rules, laws, or local ordinances; (d) to infringe upon or violate our intellectual property rights or the intellectual property rights of others; (e) to harass, abuse, insult, harm, defame, slander, disparage, intimidate, or discriminate based on gender, sexual orientation, religion, ethnicity, race, age, national origin, or disability; (f) to submit false or misleading information; (g) to upload or transmit viruses or any other type of malicious code that will or may be used in any way that will affect the functionality or operation of the Service or of any related website, other websites, or the Internet; (h) to spam, phish, pharm, pretext, spider, crawl, or scrape; (i) for any obscene or immoral purpose; or (j) to interfere with or circumvent the security features of the Service or any related website, other websites, or the Internet.
