Refund Policy – Global Connections

When you use this site, for any sort of information, it does not, by design, establish advisor-client or consultant-client association between Global Connections and you, who is the guest/reader/user. As such an association may occur ONLY in a situation wherein an advisory/consulting charge is given to Global Connections. However--if a visit made results in advisor-client or consultant-client relation between the two parties-- the client concurs with following as a part of the policy of refund involving consulting

An advisor-client or consultant-client association is-- and will continue to be--subject to a completely new contract of engagement (COE) decided and inked between both the parties, namely, Global Connections & client. The terms & conditions and refund policy of this type of an agreed and inked contract of engagement/agreement, for using the services of the immigration consultancy in its capacity as an advisor, is fully autonomous of the terms & conditions of usage of the given site.

Since the pact of engagement could not be the same, and may vary from one client to another, it remains the job of the guest/reader/user to present a formal request before Global Connections for a draft copy of, what is called the contract of engagement (COE), that carries an annexure on refund policy which will be relevant in his situation, evaluate the COE & refund policy and only then settle the fee in Global Connections favour.

The client will offer every needed information and papers, such as the English translations in an agreed form, and as sought by Global Connections and the involved Visa Office.
