Refunds on COAP Online membership
We offer a full refund policy for COAP Online membership provided that it is requested within 48hrs of the sale time and date and that any video content has only been played once. If either of these conditions are not met, then we will be unable to issue a refund.
Where a refund is applicable in accordance with the terms outlined, you will be issued a full refund of your purchase within 14 days of approval. You will receive the refund through the same payment method you used to make the purchase. If, for any reason, we are unable to issue a refund in the timeframe or via your initial payment method, we will contact you to arrange alternative methods.
We do not provide part refunds on subscription payments. If you cancel your monthly payment, you will maintain access to your membership for 30 days after your final payment has cleared. If you cancel your yearly payment, you will maintain access to your upgraded features for the rest of that period, up to 365 days after you completed payment.
IMPORTANT: Where refunds apply, you will receive the exact, net amount received by us after any bank transaction charges and currency conversion charges have been applied when it arrived in our account.

Where they apply, refunds are for decent people with genuine reasons. If it appears to us that you are abusing refunds, we may stop offering them to you. An example of abuse where this applies, is if you request a refund, receive the refund, then re-join at a later date and request a second refund. We would consider this abuse, would not grant the second refund and would block any future membership.

If you are under 18 and would like to join, please contact us regarding consent and data in regard to parent and guardian responsibility.
