15.3. The size of Commissions depends on the User’s Subscription Tariff Plan.

16. Refund policy

At iPNOTE, the satisfaction and security of clients are paramount. The Guaranteed Transaction Policy outlines the scenarios in which a client may request a refund and the process for doing so.

Clients can request a refund at any time before accepting the results of a task by contacting the support team or their personal manager. Upon receiving a refund request, the case will be reviewed by the iPNOTE disputes department, and a decision will be made based on the following scenarios:

16.1. Provider Initiated Work: If a client requests a refund after the provider has already started working on the task, the refund will be issued minus the iPNOTE commission and the cost of the provider’s time spent on the task. Government fees will be fully refunded.

16.2. Provider Not Started Work: If a client requests a refund before the provider has started working on the task, the refund will be issued minus the iPNOTE commission.

16.3. Unsuitable Provider: If a client realizes after payment that the provider is not suitable for objective reasons, the provider will be replaced with another one at the same or lower price, or a full refund will be provided.

16.4. Changes in Services or Fees: If a provider wishes to change services or fees, the client has the right to either accept the additional charges or refuse them. If refused, the provider will bear the cost.

16.5. Task Modifications: If a client wishes to modify a task, leading to a change in cost, the client is responsible for paying any additional charges.

16.6. Missed Deadlines: If a deadline is missed, the responsible party will be determined. If the provider is at fault, they will bear any additional costs. If the client is at fault for not providing necessary information or instructions, they will be responsible for the additional costs.

16.7. Quality of Services: If a client is not satisfied with the quality of the services provided (e.g., patent search or drafting of a patent application), they must provide a specific list of deficiencies. The case will be reviewed by the iPNOTE team, and a decision will be made regarding a partial or full refund.

16.8. Provider Refusal: If a provider refuses to complete a task after payment, the client will receive a full refund.

16.9. Other Cases: For situations not specifically listed above, the case will be reviewed by the disputes department. The review will include an analysis of the correspondence, the original task description, and other relevant details before a decision is made.

18.1.2.

18.1.3. In the event that the Task-Related Disputed Matter remains unresolved at the conclusion of the Task-Related Disputed Matter Mediation Period, by no later than the twentieth (20th) calendar day after the end of the Task-Related Disputed Matter Mediation Period, iPNOTE shall make a determination in its sole and absolute discretion (the iPNOTE Task-Related Disputed Matter Decision”), and based upon the information theretofore provided by the Client and Consultant, as to whether the nature and quality of the legal services rendered in connection with the Task which is the subject of the Task-Related Disputed Matter were consistent with industry standards, the provisions of the related Task and these Terms of Use. 

18.1.4. Should iPNOTE decide the Task-Related Disputed Matter in favor of the Consultant User, the Client shall be obligated to make payment of the Withheld Payment Amounts to such Consultant within the seven (7) calendar day period after the date on which such Client is notified in writing of the iPNOTE Task-Related Disputed Matter Decision (the iPNOTE Services-Related Disputed Matter Decision Notice”).
