Please read these terms and conditions carefully before starting mentoring relationships with me as your Mentor. By accepting the role of Mentee, you confirm your understanding and agreement with the terms and conditions. If you do not accept the terms and conditions, you should not start the mentoring relationship.

1. General terms and conditions

Mentoring fees

1.1 Mentoring relationship starts as soon as Mentee makes the first payment of the agreed fee.

1.2 Mentee should pay first payment before or soon after the first formal mentoring meeting and must clear its entire dues before or during the 7 days after the second formal meeting. Mentor can withhold mentoring services if Mentee does not adhere to this rule.

1.3 Fees charged by Mentor for his services depend on the type of Mentoring Package offered by Mentor and chosen by Mentees. Detailed information about the scope of services included in each Mentoring Package and their prices can be seen in Mentor’s internet site following at https://passmentor.com/mentoring-services-and-fees

1.4 Scope of services included in Mentoring Package and their respective fees are applicable only for one submission period, for which Mentee applied; they could be updated for each subsequent submission period.

1.5 Money transfer charges resulted from payment for Mentor’s services must be covered as follows: Mentee delivers to the Mentor’s checkout point exact amount stated in the relevant price list (or mutually agreed if, for example, Mentor offers special discount). Checkout point for credit/debit card payment, PayPal and most of other payment gateways supported by Mentor’s internet site is the “Checkout” page on his site. For bank (wire) transfer, non-bank money transfer and other money transfer services which are not carried out through Mentor’s Internet site, checkout point is the final destination of money transfer (Mentee in such case effectively pays all the transfer charges, but as a rule Mentor offers discount from package cost in compensation).

1.6 If Mentee decides to defer Research and Analysis Project (RAP) preparation to the following submission period, an administration fee of 120 USD will be charged prior to recommencing the mentoring relationship.

1.7 If Mentee decides to discontinue mentoring relationship before the third formal meeting and within 30 days of commencement of mentoring services, he/she has the right to receive repayment of the mentoring fees paid by him according to a sliding scale. If Mentee cancels mentoring relationship before the second mentoring meeting, then he will receive repayment of 66% of the amount paid. If Mentee cancels mentoring relationship after the second mentoring meeting but before the third mentoring meeting, then he will receive repayment of 33% of the amount paid. No refund will be due to Mentee after the third mentoring meeting or after 30 days of commencement of mentoring relationship. Any possible transfer charges resulted from these repayments must be covered by Mentee.

1.8 Mentor should not charge additional fee for minor or extra supports to Mentee, unless such additional support is specifically requested by Mentee and fee is mutually agreed before support is rendered.

Communication

1.9 Mentor and Mentee should use E-mail and online mediums to discuss broad level issues during the preparation of RAP. They should use conferencing facilities such as Skype or Google Hangout for RAP presentation during the third formal meeting.

1.10 Mentee should communicate to Mentor his desire to arrange meeting and should provide written materials in relation to the meeting at least three days in advance. Mentee and Mentor should be available at the agreed time and date, and make every effort to avoid postponement of the meeting to a later date. Mentee or Mentor should inform as soon as possible other party about necessity to postpone meeting.

Cheating and plagiarism

1.11 Mentor does not accept plagiarism or any other type of cheating or misconduct. Mentor should issue special warning to Mentee if at any stage of the mentoring relationship he strongly suspects (based on evidence) plagiarism or cheating in Mentee’s RAP.
