5.7. Unless otherwise stated at the time of purchase, all course purchases are subscriptions which automatically renew for the respective contractually agreed term (e.g. 1 week, or 1, 3, 6 or 12 months) unless the User or ELAN terminates the respective Contract up to 7 days before expiry of the contract lifetime respective. Fees for renewal periods will also be charged in advance. All contracts can be terminated at the end of the respective term.

By entering into this Agreement, you acknowledge that your subscription has an initial and recurring payment feature and you accept responsibility for all recurring charges prior to cancellation.

Users who purchase the Accent Assessment have 12 months duration.  Users must submit their recordings for feedback before the product duration ends.  Incomplete assessments are non-refundable.  Assessment audio recordings must be submitted in the format outlined in the course and be of sufficient quality for analysis.  If recordings are of insufficient quality, the assessment will be completed but feedback will be limited by the quality of the recordings.  If additional recordings are required, users will be required to purchase a second assessment. Feedback on submitted audio recordings can be expected within 5 days, however, this is on a best endeavours basis and is not a contractual obligation.  Once audio recordings are submitted, Users are no longer eligible for a refund of the cost of the assessment.
