Data Policy
To provide these services, we must collect and use your personal data. We detail our practices in the Data Policy, which you must agree to in order to use our Products.

User Accounts
You will choose a personal, non-transferable password, and you are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password. You are also responsible for all content and information stored, transferred, and received under your username and password. When creating your account, you must provide accurate and complete information. If you suspect a person has accessed your account without authorization, it is your responsibility to change your password and alert SocioDesk immediately. In addition, you acknowledge that SocioDesk may communicate with you through email. You are responsible for ensuring that SocioDesk has your current email address so that SocioDesk can provide you such communications.
You may never use another Member’s account without permission.

Refund of charges
When users cancel their account, they will not be issued refunds for their most recent (or any previous) billing. The single exception to this is PAID annual subscribers. Annual subscribers who wish to cancel and request a refund may do so within 30 days of the day on which they were charged for their account; in these cases, only a partial refund equivalent to 80% of the annual fee will be returned. Other requests for refunds may be processed at the sole discretion of a SocioDesk sales staff member.
If you have a question while canceling your account, you must give our email staff adequate time to respond to your message.
