I agree to pay an annual membership fee if applicable and the necessary consultation fee, pursuant to the schedule of memberships and fees set forth on the icliniq. Icliniq reserves the right to modify its pricing structure at any time and implement the new price structure at any time prior to billing the client for his or her initial payment or for future payments that are due pursuant to this agreement.
I understand and agree that all consultations cancelled with less than 4 hours notice will be charged the full consultation amount, said amount to be as set forth on the icliniq.
I understands that the content permissible to be typed in any query (direct query to a doctor, follow-up query or posting it as a paid query on common query system) should be less than 500 words and/or files attached in the query should be less than or equal to 5. The same rules apply for phone or video consultations (direct consultation to a doctor/follow-up consultation to a doctor/common consultation booking). Content typed more than 500 words and/or attachments more than 5 will be taken as another query/consultation and additional fee (the fee will be as same as the parent query/consultation) till it reaches another 500 words and 5 more attachments. I understand that this rule works in arithmetic progression. Example : A query or content having 1500 words and 5 attachments (or) even 500 queries with 15 attachments will be taken as 3 queries/consultation and thrice the fee of the parent query/consultation can be automatically deducted from my credit card or wallet balance or balance from icliniq wallet of a client will automatically be deducted.

Icliniq will not, under any circumstances, issue cash refunds or credits for early contract cancellation or refund payment for any consultation, once charged. If I have a question about charges made to my account, I shall contact [email protected]
immediately. Even if the charges were made in error, icliniq still has the sole discretion to credit the account or credit card account for the appropriate or corresponding amount. Icliniq has a zero-tolerance policy for chargebacks. My dispute of a credit card payment that is found to be valid is subject to a fine, suspension and account termination subject to icliniq's discretion. Any chargeback fees, past due fees and costs will be sent to collections.
If icliniq's collection efforts fail, unpaid debts will be reported to all available credit reporting agencies. Booking and cancelling an consultation within 24 hours at any particular point of time will not allow refund of the Consultation fee.
Icliniq shall issue a full refund after the moderation team does an internal enquiry (after my complaint) to check the quality. However the decision to refund vests with icliniq.
I expressly agree that the exclusive jurisdiction for any dispute with icliniq, or in any way relating to use of the Site, resides in the courts of Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu, India.
