Sales Terms And Conditions

For non-South African citizens

Due to the fact that our prices are all quoted in South African Rands, there will be an automatic currency conversion when you purchase by credit card. Therefore due to slight currency fluctuations, the amount eventually reflected on your credit card statement in your local currency may vary slightly from the amount calculated on your date of purchase.

Since Cultural Guiding is a division of Ripple Effect 4 (Pty) Ltd., your credit card statement will reflect a transfer of funds to this company and not to Cultural Guiding.
  • Your receipt of an electronic or other form of order confirmation does not signify Cultural Guiding's acceptance of your order. Cultural Guiding reserves the right at any time after receipt of your order, to decline your order, for any reason whatsoever.
    If your order is declined you will be notified via e-mail. Cultural Guiding may require additional verifications or information before accepting any order for any goods and items sold on the website.
  • We accept the following credit cards [Visa], [MasterCard], [Amercan Express] and [Diners Club].

The only consideration for refunds will be made where course content has been purchased more than once. If a reversal of this transaction is granted, there will be a 5% surcharge. This is to cover the cost of the credit card transaction only, since Ripple Effect 4 incurs a 5% cost of sale on all transactions, to bank charges.

  • Re-process your transaction

Security Policy
Is it safe to use your credit card on Cultural Guiding ? In the case of buying from Cultural Guiding the answer is YES. The reason for this is that a totally secure Internet transaction processing connection manages any credit card purchase that you do on Cultural Guiding. Cultural Guiding has a number of security features which address the concerns of electronic commerce via the Internet and which combine to make it many times more secure than the traditional uses of your credit card, such as telephone or mail order.

Communication between you and Cultural Guiding is encrypted using the Secure Socket Layer ("SSL") mechanism built into your browser. Encryption scrambles your information so that the transaction details cannot be cracked. This ensures that all information is kept private and therefore cannot be seen or altered by anyone else over the Internet. Furthermore, you have the opportunity to register your private information within the transaction processing service when you do your first purchase transaction or when you register on Cultural Guiding as a user. Another advantage of registering your details is that you only need to spend time completing the order form once, providing details such as shipping information, e-mail address and other pertinent details. The next time you wish to purchase something the whole process will take place really quickly - you simply enter your password and your order form details are automatically provided. For security reasons Cultural Guiding will not store your credit card details, and therefore you will need to re-enter this with each order.

How do online transactions work?
We use SSL technology to send your credit card number to our secure server. Access to this machine is strictly controlled further protecting you, by avoiding unauthorized access to personal data. SSL sends your details in an encrypted format. Once your credit card details are input, an online check of your creditm card with our acquiring banks is done. This ensures that the number that you entered actually corresponds to a real credit card number and is not one that has been made up. The system will also check the card number against a number of "Hot card lists" to ensure that no fraudulent use is being made of a card. This online verification of your details is carried out over a secure line to the bank.

After your merchandise has been downloaded, your credit card will be charged. Our transaction system currently works with Web browsers that can use SSL such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer.
