- Payment procedure
To gain full access to the use of the services available on Site User must make a payment to User’s account in accordance with the selected plan. Information on incoming transactions posted on the User’s personal account can be seen on User’s profile for twenty four (24) hours after it was refilled. Plan information can be found on the tutoronline.net.
The expiration date of a plan when activating other plans simultaneously equals to the one with the latest expiration date. Simultaneous activation of several identical plans does not change the overall validity of the plan. Funds deposited in the personal account may be used by Users only to obtain consulting services from the Tutors on the Site. Unused on consultation services funds stay on the User’s account till the expiration date of the selected plan. Upon the expiration date of the selected plan in the case of its non-renewal, the balance of the Personal Account of the User goes in favor of the site Administrator, and the User’s personal account is nullified. Prolongation of the plan is the appointment of the same or another selected plan with the appropriate amount credited to the Personal account before the expiration date of the current plan. The period of extension is the same as the newly selected rate and is calculated from the date the Personal account is refilled for the necessary amount. At the same time, unused credit in the previous planes not nullified and is available for subsequent use.
Rates can be changed by the site Administrator unilaterally as long as the User is notified on the website by changing the content of the information on plans (no special separate announcement is required). Changes in rates do not involve a cost allocation for the time period pre-paid by Users before the information about the change in rates is posted on the Site.
Payment can be made by the User using any of the methods listed on the Site at the discretion of the User, without charging any fees for the payment transfer by the site Administrator. The amount of deposited funds is reflected on the User’s profile after it has been received by the site Administrator.
Write-offs on the User’s account are made in accordance with rates - every thirty (30) seconds. The total amount of write-offs is calculated as follows:
The total amount of write-offs= Rate/ 45 * total consultation time (in minutes). If the total write-off is a fractional number, site administrator automatically rounds the amount written off up to the nearest integer in rubles.
