9. Refund Policy.

To ensure that all customers have reasonable time to assess whether the purchased product and service meet their needs, we provide a 30-day Refund Guarantee. If a customer satisfies one of the following refundable circumstance, he can submit a refund request within 30 natural days after the completion of payment. Please be advised that if it is not submitted within the product's specified refund period stated above, the refund request will be rejected.

(1). Refundable Circumstances

a) Duplicate payment of purchase caused by the third-party payment channel;

b) Failure to receive the license code after the completion of payment. If a customer failed to receive the license code from our server after payment and has not received a timely response (within 48hours) from our support team after making contact, you can file a refund request to us and we will pay back all of your payment under your demand.

(2). No refund circumstances

a) Groundless Request. A customer can’t apply to refund for no reason after the payment. It’s strongly advised that you contact our technological team for help solve any concerns regarding the product or service.

b) Purchase "wrong license validity period". It is strongly recommended that you carefully check the validity and payment amount of the license before making the final purchase.

c) Unauthorized Transaction. A customer refund request on complaint of credit card fraud/other unauthorized payment. We recommends the customer contacts the card issuer if there is any suspicion of fraud or unauthorized payment.

It’s strongly recommended that you try the free version of our product or service before you decided to order a license code.

a) Refunds will be processed within about 15 working days.

10. Legal Disputes and Arbitration Agreement

Please Read This Following Clause Carefully – It May Significantly Affect Your Legal Rights, Including Your Right to File a Lawsuit in Court

(1) Initial Dispute Resolution.  We are available by email at [legalnotice@cmcm.com] to address any concerns you may have regarding your use of the Service. Most concerns may be quickly resolved in this manner. Each of you and the Company agree to use best efforts to settle any dispute, claim, question, or disagreement directly through consultation and good faith negotiations which shall be a precondition to either party initiating a lawsuit or arbitration. 

(2) Agreement to Binding Arbitration.  If we do not reach an agreed upon solution within a period of thirty (30) days from the time informal dispute resolution is pursued pursuant to section 12(A) above, then either party may initiate binding arbitration. All claims arising out of or relating to these Terms of Service (including its formation, performance and breach), the parties’ relationship with each other and/or your use of the Service shall be finally settled by binding arbitration administered on a confidential basis by the American Arbitration Association in accordance with the provisions of the Consumer Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (the “AAA”), excluding any rules or procedures governing or permitting class actions.  The arbitrator, and not any federal, state or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve all disputes arising out of or relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of these Terms of Service, including, but not limited to, any claim that all or any part of these Terms of Service is void or voidable.  The arbitrator shall be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in a court under law or in equity.  The arbitrator’s award shall be binding on the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. The interpretation and enforcement of these Terms of Service shall be subject to the Federal Arbitration Act.

The AAA’s rules governing the arbitration may be accessed at www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1.800.778.7879.  To the extent the filing fee for the arbitration exceeds the cost of filing a lawsuit, we will pay the additional cost.  If we are required to pay the additional cost of the filing fees, you should submit A request for payment of fees to AAA along with your form for initiating the arbitration, and we will make arrangements to pay all necessary fees directly to AAA.  The arbitration rules also permit you to recover attorney’s fees in certain circumstances.

The parties understand that, absent this mandatory provision, they would have the right to sue in court and have a jury trial.  They further understand that, in some instances, the costs of arbitration could exceed the costs of litigation and the right to discovery may be more limited in arbitration than in court.

(3) Class Action and Class Arbitration Waiver.  You and the Company each further agree that any arbitration shall be conducted in your respective individual capacities only and not as a class action or other representative action, and you and the Company each expressly waive your respective right to file a class action or seek relief on a class basis.  If any court or arbitrator determines that the class action waiver set forth in this paragraph is void or unenforceable for any reason or that an arbitration can proceed on a class basis, then the arbitration provision set forth above in Section 10(B) shall be deemed null and void in its entirety and the parties shall be deemed to have not agreed to arbitrate disputes.

(4) Exception - Small Claims Court Claims. Notwithstanding the parties’ agreement to resolve all disputes through arbitration, either party may seek relief in a small claims court for disputes or claims within the scope of that court’s jurisdiction.

(5) 30 Day Right to Opt Out.  You have the right to opt-out and not be bound by the arbitration and class action waiver provisions set forth in Sections 10(B), 10(C), and 10(D) by sending written notice of your decision to opt-out to the following email: [legalnotice@cmcm.com..] The notice must be sent within thirty (30) days of registering to use the Service, otherwise you shall be bound to arbitrate disputes in accordance with the terms of those sections.  If you opt-out of these arbitration provisions, we also will not be bound by them.

(6) Exclusive Venue for Litigation.  To the extent that the arbitration provisions set forth in Section 10(B) do not apply, the parties agree that any litigation between them shall be filed exclusively in state or federal courts located in Santa Clara County, California (except for small claims court actions which may be brought in the county where you reside). The parties expressly consent to exclusive jurisdiction in California for any litigation other than small claims court actions. 

(7) Applicable Law.  You agree that federal laws and the laws of the State of California, without regard to principles of conflict of laws, will govern these Terms of Service and any claim or dispute that has arisen or may arise between you and the Company.
