However, if your product is not delivered within an hour after the purchase, you should contact us at info@ontologyofvalue.com.

Billing Information Terms and Conditions

By shopping here, you agree to share current, complete, and truthful billing information for all purchases made at our store. You also agree to promptly update your account and billing information so that we can complete the transactions and contact you as needed.

We reserve the right to refuse any order you place with us. We may in our sole discretion, limit or cancel quantities purchased per person, per household, or per order. These restrictions may include orders placed by or under the same customer account, the same credit card, and/or orders that use the same billing and/or shipping address. If we make a change to or cancel an order, we may attempt to notify you by contacting the email, billing address, or phone number provided at the time the order was made. We reserve the right to limit or prohibit orders that, in our sole judgment, appear to be placed by dealers, resellers, or distributors.

Product information

On our website, we sell:

  • Tickets to online and on-site career events,
  • Access to online courses,
  • Access to online aptitude tests,
  • Educational materials in a form of a PDF file (e.g., books).

Our products are age-restricted to 18+.

Occasionally, there may be information on our website that contains typographical errors, inaccuracies, or omissions that may relate to product descriptions, pricing, promotions, offers, and availability. We reserve the right to correct any errors, inaccuracies or omissions, and to change or update information or cancel orders if any information is inaccurate at any time without prior notice (including after you have submitted your order).

Furthermore, some of our products are occasionally upgraded to a new version. This concerns a situation when, e.g., when the second edition of one of our books is published, or when a new version of our course or test is released to the market. In that case, we might contact the customers who purchased the previous version of the product using their billing information to inform them about the upgrade and to give them access to the newest version of the product without any additional payment.


All the prices on our website include the VAT tax. Currently, we send a basic version non-VAT invoice to the customer’s email address as specified in the billing information after the purchase is completed. To receive the full version of the invoice, please email us at info@ontologyofvalue.com. We oblige ourselves to release the full version of the invoice within 72 hours. In your email, please include the following information necessary for the invoice:
  • Invoice number (the invoice number that you can find on the basic invoice received from us),
  • Business name,
  • Business address,
  • VAT-identification number.

Cancellation / Return policy

1. Cancellation / Return policy regarding our books, online courses, and aptitude tests. We do not offer refunds for the purchase of our electronic services. However, if the client cannot access the product for any reason (e.g., because the access/download link does not work), we will cancel the order and refund the whole amount. 2. Cancellation policy regarding our online and on-site career events. For customers who purchase a ticket to an online or on-site career event with us, we offer refunds in a situation when for personal reasons, participation in the event becomes impossible (such as sickness or an emergency life event). In that case, please email us at info@ontologyofvalue.com before the event and briefly explain the situation. In that case, you will be emailed back and reimbursed. No refund is possible after the event, even if the customer was absent (without giving us prior notice).
