MedEmpower™ Refund Policy
For details on our refund deadlines and policies, please refer to the information below; note that our policies differ from course to course or services obtained. Please also note that we treat violations of our Terms of Use and Honor Code very seriously, and we have no obligation to offer refunds to learners who are found to be in violation of these terms, even if their requests are made within the designated refund period. Similarly, we have no obligation to offer late refunds to learners who do not pass a course or Specialization, or who are otherwise unsatisfied with their final grade.
For more information about our refund process, including instructions for requesting a refund, please writes to info@MedEmpower.org.

For Course Purchases
If you cancel your paid enrolment for a course, MedEmpower™ will offer you a complete refund (minus the non-refundable registration fees, conversion charges, bank charges and taxes if any involved) until 14 days after payment. Once you have earned a Course Certificate with your payment, you are not eligible for a refund even if it is within 14 days. If you do not earn your Course Certificate within 180 days or course duration, which every longer, your registration will expire and you will need to pay to re-enroll for the course. However, if you’re taking a course through your company or organization (e.g. MedEmpower™ Enterprise or Government or Association) then you can earn your certificate as long as your organisation’s contract with MedEmpower™ is active and your access has not expired in accordance with the terms of that contract. Similarly, refunds and cancellations will also be governed by the terms of that contract between your organization and MedEmpower™.

For Other Paid Services
Except as described in this Refund Policy or as explicitly stated as part of the sign-up process for a Service, MedEmpower™ has no obligation to provide refunds or vouchers for any other Services.,br/>Third Party Marketplaces
Notwithstanding the foregoing, if you purchase or subscribe for a course or Specialization, or purchase any other paid Service, through a third party marketplace (e.g., in-app purchases through the Apple App Store or purchases made through certain alternative payment services), the refund policy applicable to that third party marketplace will apply, unless otherwise explicitly stated by MedEmpower™ . Except as otherwise explicitly stated by MedEmpower™, the third party marketplace will be solely responsible for making refunds under its refund policy, and MedEmpower™will have no refund obligations. MedEmpower™ disclaims any responsibility or liability related to any third party marketplace’s refund policy or the third party’s compliance or noncompliance with such policy.
