2. Website Use Information
Similar to other commercial websites, this site utilizes a standard technology called “cookies” (see explanation below, “What Are Cookies?”) and Web server logs to collect information about how this site is used. Information gathered through cookies and web server logs may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent at this site, and the websites visited just before and just after our site. We, our advertisers and ad serving companies may also use small technology or pieces of code to determine which advertisements and promotions users have seen and how users responded to them.
We also collect theme usage data through our automatic update mechanism, which checks to ensure you have the latest version of the theme you’ve purchased. This process is necessary in order to provide you with a painless and consistent upgrade experience. You can opt out of receiving automatic updates to the latest version of your theme by disabling updates in your Theme Settings.

Money-Back Guarantee and Refund Policy
We at African Starters (a division of Africa Venture Lab LLC) want you to be completely happy with your purchase. If you have any questions, concerns, or problems, please log into your site dashboard and submit a support request: just click on the “Email Us” button under the Help tab in the Admin Toolbar.
In the event, however, that you decide your purchase was not the right decision, we want to make things right. Within 30 days of any purchase, Africa Venture Lab will refund the full price you paid upon request. Simply submit a support requested as described above, choose the “I need help with my account” option, and let us know you’d like a refund. No refunds are provided after more than 30 days following purchase.
Refunds, Cancellations, and Other Legal Stuff
Truth be told, what we provide is a lot of intellectual content via emails, videos, and other online content and as such, taking a return isn’t exactly possible. Let’s face it, It’s not often that you take a book home, read it and if you didn’t like it, return it to the store. That’s what libraries are for, right?
All that said, if you feel like you didn’t get what was promised, we will do everything we can to make it right. We are nice folks and we also feel like it’s fairly reasonable for you to let us know within 30 Days of a purchase that you aren’t happy with what you purchased in order for us to provide any sort of refund.
That said, we respond really well to polite, reasonable requests and want you to find our products useful. So, drop us a call and we’ll work it out.
If you are dissatisfied with any of our courses subscription based products, please contact us and let us know. You can cancel any of your subscriptions at any time with no issue and you will continue to have access until your purchased time expires.
We’re offering subscription packages, and these may change from time to time. Whatever you choose now, that’s what you get. In the future, we may offer stuff for groups, special bells and whistles for a few more moneys, etc. You’ll never get less than we promised, but you may have an opportunity to change your subscription and get more when we invent something really nifty and useful (at least we hope we will.) We won’t increase your membership fee in any given term, but when your current membership expires, don’t be too put out if it may get more expensive if we need to up the fee to cover the bills. Server space is not free, nor are the lovely people trying to make sure these are great products and worth every penny. We’ll let you know a way in advance. We don’t like surprises and we assume you don’t either.
You agree that you’ll pay the subscription fee and any required taxes in order to get access to the good stuff. If you have a subscription account, we’re going to take the money from your credit card, PayPal account or however you decided to pay us once a month as we agreed. If you want to switch accounts, let us know. If your card “bounces” then we’ll contact you and possibly suspend your account until you pay us- that’s only fair. We can’t give you your money back after you’ve paid for that month. If you do have a problem and need to cancel your membership, it may take us up to two weeks to get all our ducks in a row and make sure we do all the paperwork. If you’re accidentally charged again in the meantime, we’ll refund your money and apologize for being slow, but not everything is automated here- We’re part of Owner Media Group and while it sounds big, humans are involved and sometimes we may screw up, despite our best efforts not to. We’ll do our best to make it right, and we really appreciate your patience. We’re sorry you’re cancelling your membership, but we understand we can’t be a perfect fit for everyone, but we hope you’ll get the best service we can give you and at least that will make you happy.
We’d love to monitor everything, but we can’t. Folks live all over the world, and we need our sleep. Coffee isn’t always a solution- sleep is still necessary. We will have folks in our communities, monitoring the chat, and so forth. We might edit out stuff that’s particularly unpleasant and not let you know before we do so. Trust us, it wasn’t that interesting, anyways. We’d share the joke if it was good enough.
Your real remedy, if you don’t like the site or aren’t finding it useful, is to cancel your account. You pretty much can’t sue us for anything else, and besides that, who really wants to sue people who are just trying to help, offer advice and useful information and be friends?
Most of our products are online in nature and are delivered via electronic download, email, participation in online forums and links to hosted videos and other premium content. If ever there is a time when you don’t receive your product, just contact us and we’ll make sure you get what you need.
