The BaanTu Network is an experimental software that makes no promise of full functionality or accuracy. This software makes no claim to be completely free of fault. It is a work-in-progress and in constant development. With the price of a yearly subscription, you participate in the on-going experiment/development. Everything is sold as-is. We also make no guarantees that the service is available at all times. While we do our utmost best, sometimes technical faults are out of our hands and unavoidable. Due to the low price of a yearly subscription, we cannot offer any refunds. If you are not happy with the service, you can opt out the following year. You will be taken to the payment screen when your subscription expires.
