RESOLVING ISSUES

  • Nabuno cares about how you feel when using our services and we aim to have the highest standards possible and, consequently, should you have reason to complain about one of our Education Partners or their Services, we would recommend the following:
    • Speak to the Education Provider or Partner first seek a resolution through their internal complaints policy.
    • If this fails, then consider the review you give them as part of the Nabuno review service.  Please be fair and give them the opportunity to resolve the issue with you before leaving a negative or low rate review.
    • Following receipt of a complaint we will contact the Education Provider or Partner to discuss and seek a resolution.  If the matter cannot be resolved following our discussions, we will consider fairness for all parties and Nabunowill seek to find a mutual resolution. 

It should be noted that Nabuno takes all complaints and legitimate dissatisfaction seriously and we will always attempt to seek resolution, but Nabuno is not responsible to the Learner for the courses, resources, events or services that the Education Provider or Partner provides and we are therefore not obligated to provide you with a refund or credit note should you not be satisfied with your purchase.

PRICING & PAYMENTS

  • Pricing for Education Provider or Partner courses and events is controlled by our Education Providers and Partners within their course listings and as such Nabuno cannot be held responsible for any errors or omissions.  If for any reason you are concerned over pricing, please contact the Education Provider or Partner in the first instance.
  • Our Education Providers and Partners utilising Nabunoโ€™splatform have full responsibility for accounting for VAT on their sales.  Nabuno does not charge VAT on 3rd party bookings as the contract is between you, the Learner, and the Education Provider or Partner.  Any VAT receipts that are applicable should be sought from the Education Provider or Partner.
  • Payments made on our Website are processed by our merchant services and we endeavour to ensure that this is always available, however we cannot guarantee this.  We also cannot guarantee that this is free of viruses or any errors.  Payment processing times may vary, and the merchant service provider may have times when they need to maintain, update, or repair their service.  Where we have notice of any disruption to our services, we will notify our audience.
