Cancellations & Refunds Policy
3. Account Termination and Order Cancellation & Refund Policy
3.1 User Account Termination
As part of your right of use of our services, you are free to terminate your GiGaSoft platform User Account, as a publisher, at any time by ceasing to upload any new content and removing all your existing content from the platform storage via the content management section of your User Account. You may continue to use your account as a viewer without uploading or publishing any new content, or to fully terminate your account and remove your registered user details from our services, you may complete the account termination form to notify us by clicking the 'Terminate Account' option in your User Account profile.
Following your termination notice, your user account or parts of your user account may not be removed immediately from our services, but will be deactivated instead, to allow for i) a cooling off period in which you may change your mind and return to use your account as a viewer or as a publisher again ii) a review period to ensure your account is safe to delete without affecting our services or other users whose accounts may be related or have links to your account such as, but not limited to, analytics, subscriptions or content feeds.
Termination of viewer accounts, with no content uploaded or published, will be actioned immediately at the time when we receive your cancellation notice.
This provision does not affect your statutory rights. Details of your statutory right, and an explanation of how to exercise it, are provided in the order confirmation e-mail that you receive from us.
