While we make every effort to ensure that we accurately represent all the products and services reviewed on this website and their potential for income, it should be noted that the testimonials and reports used are exceptional results.

These exceptional results do not apply to the average purchaser and are not intended to represent or guarantee that anyone will achieve the same or similar result. Earnings and income statements made by Mana (www.manamarketing.co.za) and its advertisers/sponsors are for reference/testimonial purposes only.

With this disclaimer, you acknowledge that the prior success of others does not guarantee your success. There is no guarantee that you will generate the same levels of income and you accept the risk that the earnings and income statements differ by individual.

As with any business, your results may vary and will be based on your individual capacity, business experience, expertise, and level of commitment. There is no assurance that examples of past earnings can be duplicated in the future and you acknowledge that there are no guarantees concerning the level of success you may experience. We cannot guarantee your future results and/or success. 

Each individual’s success depends on his or her background, dedication, commitment, and motivation.

In business and on the internet, there are some variables that we cannot foresee which could reduce the results you experience. We are not responsible for your actions.

13.   TESTIMONIAL DISCLAIMER

These examples are not typical.

Due to the variables associated with defining success in online marketing, it is impossible to accurately state when an individual may or may not achieve it.

Success is determined on an individual basis and is dependent on a variety of factors including willingness to take action and implement ideas based on what is taught, prevailing market conditions, target market selection, and the amount of hard work and effort an individual expends.

Similar to another type of marketing, our typical student should not expect to make any amount of money from the training that Mana provides but should expect to receive a great education.

Consequently, Mana does not guarantee success, income, or savings whether explicit or implied, and past customer testimonials are only examples of what can be obtained. There are risks associated with this education, and past results do not represent an indication of future success or earnings.

The customers depicted in our testimonial have declared the information shared is true and accurate at the time of publication.

The written, audio, and visual presentations offered may have been edited from their original versions. Some personal and private information has been removed in order to protect client and consultant confidentiality.

  • Eligibility

(i) A lead must be accepted and valid;

(ii) a Customer Transaction must have occurred;

We will determine the currency in which we pay the Commission, as well as the applicable conversion rate. We will not pay more than one Commission payment or another similar referral fee on any given Customer Transaction (unless we choose to at our own discretion).

  • Taxes.

You are responsible for payment of all taxes and fees (including bank fees) applicable to the Commission. All amounts payable by us to you are subject to offset by us against any amounts owed by you to us.

  • Commission Amounts.

We reserve the right to alter or change the Commission amount as per the Affiliate Tool.

  • Commission Payout

Please note that all commission payouts are subject to payout fees. These fees are deducted from the commission amount before the final payout is issued to the affiliate. The specific payout fees are subject to the third-party payment gateways that we use.

It is important to understand that these payout fees cover administrative and processing costs associated with commission payments. The deducted amount helps us manage the financial transactions efficiently and ensure smooth operations of our affiliate program.

We strive to provide accurate and timely commission payouts while minimizing any associated costs. However, please be aware that the actual payout amount received by the affiliate may be slightly lower than the original commission amount due to these payout fees.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding the commission payout process or the applicable payout fees, please reach out to our affiliate support team for further clarification. We value transparency and aim to provide you with a clear understanding of the payout process and any associated fees.

By participating in our affiliate program, you acknowledge and accept the deduction of payout fees from the commission payouts. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation in this matter.

Note: The specific payout fees may vary and are subject to change without notice.

We require payments to be made on time with respect to the services, and any and all-inclusive materials, I.e., content, files, and images to be submitted upon request.

All fees collected are subject to the refund policies as outlined below. Upon hiring Mana, for digital marketing and/or web designing services you are bound by our refund and cancellation policy agreement and agree to abide by our policies therein.

a. Project-Based Refund Policy

We plan each project by dividing work into milestones.

All projects begin with a complete discovery/analysis and the creation of a scope of work document. This is done to make sure that both parties have a complete understanding of the work required and thus eliminate the potential for project cancellations, reversals, or disputes.

As there is time spent to achieve every milestone and complete every module, we have an extensive refund policy.

In the event of a project terminated on a mutual basis, the client has control of all completed work, and any payment for further development will become void. No previous payment or deposit will be refunded.

No payment will be refunded once the client approves mock-up designs and we move into the development phase of the project.

There are no partial refunds for projects mid-way through a milestone phase.

No cancellations are entertained for services that our marketing team has offered on special occasions. These are limited-time offers and cannot be canceled.

All hosting payments whether present or past months are non-refundable. Web hosting accounts are set up from the date of your order and are allotted a limited amount of server resources depending on the plan you purchased.

Upon installation of a Client hosting account payment is considered due. If the Client fails to use a hosting account set up by Oculon, in association with Mana, fees will not be remanded and are still considered due. Hosting billing cycles continue until a 30-day cancellation notice is received in writing from the CLIENT.

c.      Web Development Refund Policy

Web design and development project requirements comprise extensive resources including time, research, and incurring internal expenses. Therefore, once a payment or deposit is made, it is non-refundable. By submitting a deposit payment client agrees to the pricing in the quote. All client-provided material to Mana is considered as Mana property and assumes no return of said materials. Materials include emails, data, images, and or samples of any kind. Mana is not responsible for any lost, stolen, or misplaced material. If a project is canceled, delayed, or postponed by the CLIENT, all fees will be forfeited and will be retained by Mana. If applicable, an additional cost will be charged to the CLIENT for all work completed beyond the project’s original specifications. No exceptions.

d.     Social Media Management and Marketing Refund Policy

All Payments for Social Media Marketing or any of our Internet Marketing services are non-refundable per agreement. Once a payment or deposit is made, no exceptions will be granted to our refund policy even if fees were paid in advance.

  • A full refund will be made if you secede to cancel our services within 5 days of making the payment.
  • If you choose to terminate our services after the initial 5 days then you will be charged an amount equivalent to the working hours put into the project. The balance will be credited to the account from which you made payment within 45 days of cancellation.
  • Cancellation of any service renewal should be done 30 days prior to the start of the next billing cycle.
  • If cancellations are made after the start of the billing cycle, then an amount equivalent to the working hours put into the project during that month will be billable, which the clients will be liable to pay.
  • If you signed up for our services but did not make use of them then you are still liable to pay us.
