2. Premium Services
When subscribing to a premium Service you will need to provide us with your name, email address, and billing addresses, as well as your credit card information. You agree to pay the applicable subscription fee as set forth on this site. Sales taxes may be charged in addition to the subscription fee. BY PLACING YOUR ORDER, YOU PROVIDE YOUR ELECTRONIC AUTHORIZATION FOR FUTURE CHARGES AGAINST YOUR CREDIT CARD ON FILE UNLESS YOU CANCEL.
You certify that all information you provide is accurate. You also agree to maintain and update your information as necessary so that it remains accurate and current. In the event that any information you provide is inaccurate or not up to date, Mangrove Investor reserves the right to cancel your subscription.
We reserve the right to refuse or discontinue the supply of a Service to any user at any time at our sole discretion.
Unless stated otherwise, membership to any Service is for online and/or electronic access only. Certain promotions may offer features that are issued in physical form. Shipping of any goods or service associated with these promotions is limited to the U.S./APO. Physical fulfillment of goods or services not specifically mentioned in a promotion is at the sole discretion of the Mangrove Investor.
Trial Terms, Automatic Billing and Cancellation Policy:
Some Services may provide a free trial or introductory offer. If such an offer is provided, only one per person or household is allowed at any given point in time. In addition, there is a limit of one trial per person and household in any given six-month period unless otherwise stated in the offer.
Upon signing up for a free trial, you will have access to the Service for the promotional trial period. If you cancel prior to the end of the promotional offer period, your credit card will not be charged. If you don’t cancel your subscription within the trial offer period, we will charge the primary credit card you provided during the sign-up process. You may contact Member Services at email@example.com to terminate your trial enrollment.
Your membership will automatically renew at the then-current rate, until you notify us of your decision to terminate your membership. Most subscriptions will renew for one-year terms, regardless of the offer under which the subscription was initiated. If you would like to turn off automatic renewal, or extend your subscription for additional years, please contact Member Services. BY ALLOWING FOR YOUR RENEWAL, YOU PROVIDE YOUR ELECTRONIC AUTHORIZATION FOR FUTURE CHARGES AGAINST YOUR CREDIT CARD ON FILE OR APPLE PAY. Accordingly, you agree that your membership fee or subscription will be billed automatically at the beginning of each renewal period at the then-current rate (plus sales tax, if applicable) to the credit card you used in your most recent transaction with us.
Mangrove Investor reserves the right to increase a Service’s fees or institute new charges upon reasonable notice. Service fees are due in advance.
Different Services (and sometimes specific offers) have different refund policies (including some that offer no refunds). Please review the specific terms of your offer before signing up as you are agreeing to be bound those terms. If you are unsure of your cancellation rights, please contact Member Services.
Please note that most refunds are only available to first-time subscribers. If you subscribe to a Service that allows for refunds beyond 30 days, and cancel (and receive a refund) and then subscribe again, you will not receive a refund after the first 30 days.
From time to time, Mangrove Investor offers its premium services through third-party vendors. In such cases, the vendor’s refund policy would apply and may differ from your Service (or specific offer).
Transfer; Discontinuing a Service:
You cannot transfer your subscription to someone else, except through bequeathment or by a court order. In the event a subscription is transferred, it will continue through the end of its term and can be renewed at the then-current price and conditions. For assistance in this situation, please contact Member Services.
In the event that we discontinue a Service, you agree that Mangrove Investor may transfer your subscription to another Service of equal or greater value.
3. Credit Transfer Information
Some of our services provide the option to transfer your credit towards a different Mangrove Investor service. Depending on the terms of your purchase, you may be allowed to transfer the full or pro-rated credit from your purchase. Most services eligible for a credit transfer will allow a swap within 30 days of the initial purchase, there are services that do not allow for credit transfers of any kind.
If you are unsure whether or not your service is eligible for a credit transfer please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
All credit must be swapped at the list price of the product being transferred into, and it cannot be combined with any promotional offers or discounts. Members may utilize any available swap or refund once per service. If you take advantage of a money-back guarantee or a credit-transfer guarantee into a new subscription, you will no longer be eligible to perform further action with that credit.
If you take advantage of a credit transfer guarantee, please also note that you will lose access to any product(s) and benefits included in the original promotional offer, including additional services or reports that were included as a bonus for taking advantage of the offer.
If the list price of the service you would like to transfer into is more than the amount of credit you have, you will receive a partial term of the service – the usual automatic renewal notice will be emailed a month prior to the adjusted end-date.
If the amount of credit you have is higher than the list price of the service you would like to transfer into, the subscription will be extended for the appropriate time frame to match the rate.
Mangrove Investor reserves the right to disallow transfer into certain services depending on insufficient credit, product openings, investment timelines, a member’s history of transfers or prior refunds, or for any other reason at Mangrove Investor’s sole discretion.
