Product Refund Policy
Cocoa Village Publishing Policy for product refund
Services and Subscriptions purchased that are like advertising on websites and physical publications:
Services like Internet Access, web site hosting, book layout, and web site publishing are not considered products and may have a more appropriate description of refund under the termination policy. The purchase of physical goods or intellectual goods presented as products are considered as products and are covered under our product refund policy. Subscriptions that include physical material costs like advertising that is on printed goods may not be directly refunded after the expense has been allocated to print them (example if customer wants to cancel a map listing but waits till the maps have alreay been printed that would be unfair to us. If customer cancels/terminates in a timely manner so revsions can be made before printing then a refund can be possible). For refunds that involve cost of goods already committed we may consider a refund but are not obligated. If customer wants a monetary refund we will consider a prorated refund based upon the subscription length and actual costs we incurred. Our preference is to compensate with future serivces or susbcriptions. Please understand that we can not reasonably commit to guaranteed full refunds for services agreed to by customers that have already committed production costs for us.
