REFUNDS ARE NOT GRANTED FOR:
1) Posting a duplicate question and selecting a tutor for more than one of the duplicates.
2) Poor quality in general, unless it is excessive. Note that if you are not satisfied with your tutor's quality, we suggest selecting tutors of a higher ranking in the future. Tutors should be treated fairly especially if they have worked on your question, we expect for you to acknowledge the payment fees.
HOW WE MAKE DECISIONS FOR WITHDRAWALS:
1) When filing for a withdrawal we require as much evidence as possible to side with your appeal. We require strong specific details that would help us make a decision. For example: explanation for poor quality or proof of non-original content. Screenshots are the best proof. This should be posted on the question's page conversation board. This way the team will check the question's page conversation and make a decision based on the evidence provided there. We have an unbiased approach and our objective is to be completely fair with students and tutors, especially since they expected this income and they've worked on your question. If you do not post this evidence on the question's page conversation board, we will NOT provide a refund. We strongly recommend to not release the funds to the tutor if you haven't received an answer.
2) Whenever you post a question, you need to be as specific as possible on the original post (exact instructions as in: formats, number of words/pages). When tutors bid, they'll know exactly what they're bidding for and will be held accountable for completing the question satisfactorily.
ALL PAYMENTS ARE FINAL
Once an answer has been confirmed by a student, by reviewing a tutor, that payment is final. If you are not satisfied with the answer, you must immediately withdraw the question after the question"s deadline has passed. Once the answer is confirmed by the student, payments are then released to the tutor. Snap N Study will not recover or refund such payments. If you confirm the answer and decide later on that you are not satisfied, you will not receive a refund. In the future, please make sure you are satisfied before confirming the payment for an answer.
Snap N Study Honour Code
Snap N Study goes above and beyond to help you not just pass a class, but expand your education by connecting you with online tutors that can help solve your academic questions. Snap N Study is intended to be used as an academic recourse for students, where students can connect with tutors that can explain and help the students solve academic problems. Questions posted on Snap N Study should be similar to ones you would ask your teacher after class,"explain to me how to get this answer....". We are dedicated to providing high quality academic resources to help you learn more effectively, and we are equally committed to ensuring proper usage and protecting ownership of those resources.
While we believe that the majority of Snap N Study members use the site in the manner in which it was intended, we ask that all users upon registration confirm that they have read, understand, and agree to comply with Snap N Study"s Honour Code. By joining Snap N Study, users agree to the following:
We expect our users to act with academic integrity. Therefore, anyone who misuses our site for the express purpose of cheating and/or claiming another user"s content as their own will be met with appropriate action."Misuse of our site" includes, but is not limited to:
Copying solutions directly from Snap N Study resources and submitting them as your own.
Uploading another person"s materials to Snap N Study and claiming them as your own.
Using Snap N Study tutors to complete tests or homework assignments when instructed not to use outside help.
Using Snap N Study in any manner that violates your instructor or institution"s academic Honour Code.
Cheating is ill advised for several of reasons:
First, by stealing someone else"s ideas, you"re not bothering to learn the material yourself. You"ve shelled out a handsome sum in tuition, and cheating only erodes the value of the education in which you"ve invested.
Second, you will likely get caught. Many universities leverage sophisticated technologies to scan for plagiarized material in student submitted work.
Third, the consequences are severe, and for many institutions convictions of academic dishonesty can result in probation, suspension or even expulsion.
