1. For conducting audio and video consultations, Grinfer uses its own platform; the data transmitted during your audio and video consultations will not be transferred to third parties.
2. The learner can plan the duration of the consultation before sending the request. To plan the duration of the call, the learner can use time slots of fixed duration with the minimum of 30 minutes.
When the learner sends a request for a consultation of a minimum length (which is 30 minutes), they should note that this period of time includes 5 minutes for the teacher to prepare for the consultation and 25 minutes of the consultation itself. Thus, the instructor must conduct a consultation lasting at least 25 minutes.
If the learner sends a request for a consultation lasting 1 hour or more, then this period of time includes 10 minutes for the instructor to prepare for the consultation. Thus, the instructor must conduct a consultation equal to the planned duration minus 10 minutes for necessary preparation. If the consultation lasts longer than 1 hour, the instructor has 10 minutes for necessary preparation regardless of the duration of the session.
3. The learner must send a request for consultation and make an advance payment before the consultation, but not earlier than 85 calendar days before it.
4. When sending a request, the learner has to make a 100% prepayment for the call. This amount of money will have a pending status in the learner’s account until the instructor confirms or declines the request.
5. The learner’s consultation request will be processed no later than 72 hours after sending.
If the instructor confirms a request, the pending transaction will be debited from the learner’s account. Payment is considered finalized when the money is transferred to Grinfer or a third party who charges a fee on our behalf (for example: PayPal, Stripe etc).
If the instructor declines a request, the learner will get the full refund for the consultation. The pending transaction in the learner’s account will be released.
If the instructor does not take action (confirm or decline a request within 3 days from the receipt of the booking request), the consultation will be canceled automatically and the learner will get the full refund for this booking.
6. The learner has the right to cancel the consultation. If the learner cancels the pending request before it is confirmed by the instructor, the learner will receive a full refund for this booking.
7. If the learner cancels the consultation request after it has been confirmed by the instructor and more than 24 hours prior to the start of the consultation, the learner will get the refund minus the processing fee of 4% of the total amount paid for the consultation.
If the learner cancels the request for consultation less than 24 hours prior to the start of the consultation and after it has been confirmed by the instructor, the learner will not get a refund for this consultation.
8. If the already approved consultation has been canceled by the instructor, the learner will receive a full refund for the consultation. The instructor has the right to cancel the confirmed consultation at any time before the scheduled start of the consultation. In this case, the instructor will be charged 4% processing fee of the total payment made by the learner for this consultation.
9. We will notify both learners and instructors about any status changes via email and notifications on Grinfer.
10. The instructor has the right to end the consultation at the scheduled time.
If the learner did not show up at the consultation confirmed by the instructor, the learner will not get the refund for the consultation.
If the learner joins the consultation with a delay of 15 minutes or more, the instructor has the right to refuse to conduct a consultation. In this case, the learner will not get a refund for this consultation.
If the learner joins the consultation with a delay and the instructor conducts a consultation, the learner is not entitled to demand a refund for the consultation time that was missed due to his absence.
11. If the instructor did not show up at the consultation, the learner has the right to request a full refund for the consultation.
12. If the instructor joins the consultation with a significant delay (more than 5 minutes), the learner is entitled to request a full or partial refund. The amount of the refund is calculated at Grinfer’s discretion. It can be a full or partial refund depending on the time lost due to the instructor’s absence.
13. In case of other disputes not described above, Grinfer has the right to make decisions at its own discretion.
To resolve a dispute, Grinfer has the right to request additional information both from the learner and instructor.

You agree that Grinfer limits his liability for the practice of retaining copies, for a limited time, of material that has been made available online by a person other than the provider, and then transmitted to a subscriber at his or her direction. Grinfer retains the material so that subsequent requests for the same material can be fulfilled by transmitting the retained copy, rather than retrieving the material from the original source on the network.

Dispute Resolution and Arbitration
Dutch law applies to this website and the disclaimer. All disputes arising from or in connection with this disclaimer will be submitted exclusively to the arbitrated in the Netherlands.
In the event of a Dispute, you or Grinfer must give the other a written statement that sets forth the name, address, and contact information of the party giving it, the facts giving rise to the Dispute, and a proposed solution (a "Notice of Dispute"). You must send any Notice of Dispute by Mail to Grinfer at Kamer241, Keizersgracht 241, 1016 EA Amsterdam, The Netherlands and also via e-mail to email@example.com. Grinfer will send any Notice of Dispute to you by Mail to your address if Grinfer has it, or otherwise to your e-mail address. You and Grinfer will attempt in good faith to resolve any Dispute through informal negotiation within sixty (60) days from the date the Notice of Dispute is sent. After sixty (60) days, you or Grinfer may commence arbitration.
BY AGREEING TO BINDING ARBITRATION, YOU WAIVE YOUR RIGHT TO LITIGATE DISPUTES THROUGH A COURT AND TO HAVE A JUDGE OR JURY DECIDE YOUR CASE.
Dispute which has not been resolved by negotiation as provided herein within sixty (60) days or such time period as you and Grifer may otherwise agree, shall be finally resolved by binding arbitration.
Class Action Waiver.
If we can’t resolve our dispute amicably, and Dispute which has not been resolved by negotiation as provided herein within sixty (60) days or such time period as you and Grinfer agree to resolve any claims related to these Terms (or our other legal terms) through final and binding arbitration, regardless of the type of claim or legal theory. If one of us brings a claim in court that should be arbitrated and the other party refuses to arbitrate it, the other party can ask a court to force us both to go to arbitration (compel arbitration). Either of us can also ask a court to halt a court proceeding while an arbitration proceeding is ongoing.
We both agree that we can each only bring claims against the other on an individual basis. This means:
neither of us can bring a claim as a plaintiff or class member in a class action, consolidated action, or representative action;
an arbitrator can’t combine multiple people’s claims into a single case (or preside over any consolidated, class, or representative action);
an arbitrator’s decision or award in one person’s case can only impact that user, not other users, and can’t be used to decide other users’ disputes. If a court decides that this “No class actions” clause isn’t enforceable or valid, then this “Dispute Resolution” section will be null and void, but the rest of the Terms will still apply.
The parties shall not involve any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses, unless otherwise mutually agreed by the parties; rather, the arbitration shall be conducted, at the option of the party seeking relief, online, by telephone, or via written submissions alone.
