“I” refers to Daniel Szekely, IB Economics tutor, the owner of the Company.
Any individual or organization who uses the website, especially those who provide their personal details and/or use or purchase the services or online products offered on this website, including (but not limited to) IB students and their parents.
3.1 We are so confident that all of our products and services offered by the Company are of high quality, that the Company willingly undertakes to offer a 100% Money back guarantee on all of its products and services if you feel that you have not received what you have hoped for.
3.2 The Company has a “no questions asked” policy which means that you do not have to answer any questions in order to get a full refund. However, in order to improve product and service quality for future clients like you, the Company may ask you to provide reasons of the refund request, but replying to these questions are voluntary and will not affect the payment of the refund.
3.3 The 100% Money back guarantee is subject to the following deadlines after which no refund will be made:
3.3.1 Downloadable documents (e.g. PDF guides): within 24 hours after receiving the email containing the download link of the document purchased.
3.3.2 Revision notes: 24 hours after receiving the email in which you are granted access to the revision notes. Once a refund is made to you, should you decide to buy the notes again, or buy any other revision notes in the future, you will not be refunded for any of these purchases.
3.3.3 Private tutoring sessions:
220.127.116.11 If you have paid for a single lesson: you can cancel the lesson and ask for a refund right after the first 30 min. if you feel this is not the type of tutoring you have expected. No problem, in this case you will get a full refund. If you do not indicate this by the 35th min. of the tutoring session, then you can no longer ask for a refund.
18.104.22.168 If you have paid for more than one lessons: you can indicate that you do not wish to have more lessons before the second one. No worries, in this case you will get a full refund. All remaining lessons will be cancelled and the total amount of money will be returned.
3.4 If you would like to get a full refund, you must indicate it by sending an email to hello [at] econdaddy [dot] com within the deadlines above. You must provide your international bank account details to which the refund will be made. The Company will settle all refund requests within 30 days if a refund request was made within the time limits set out above.
3.5 If you had asked for a refund, you may still apply for further tutoring, but you will no longer be entitled to receive any more refunds. The reason for this is straightforward: by this time, you most probably have had your free 20 min. trial lesson AND another (at least 30 min.) lesson (which was free again, as it was fully refunded), so you should really know what to expect when you are paying for IB Economics tutoring lessons.
The trial lesson is to get a first hand experience of what tutoring will be like in the long-run. I will show you the way I teach, the apps we use, and we will also find out how I can help you best.
You can apply for the 20 min. trial lesson only once. If you are late by more than 10 min. or not attending the pre-agreed 20 min. trial lesson at all, then the lesson is cancelled and you can only reschedule free of charge once.
5.1 Exam performance
While Company has made every effort to make revision notes as useful, accurate and precise as possible so that it helps students a lot when revising for exams (or tests at school), Company cannot guarantee any given exam or test performance (e.g. a certain grade) and shall not be held liable for any student not achieving his/her exam/test goal.
5.2 Duration of access to notes
One purchase entitles the Client to have access to the notes for 2 years starting on the date of purchase.
5.3 Copyright of notes
It is forbidden to copy, reproduce, distribute or in any other way make parts or the whole content of the revision notes available to non-Clients or the general public without the prior written consent of the Company. If a Client breaks this section and makes the notes available to third parties without the prior written consent of the Company, Company will stop granting access to the revision notes for the Client and Company is entitled for a €1000 reimbursement for any such misconduct, which Client hereby agrees to pay.
5.4 Errors and updates
While Company has made every effort to make revision notes as useful, accurate and precise, it cannot guarantee that there are no errors (e.g. typos) which require correction. Client accepts this and agrees that he/she is not entitled for a refund on the grounds that such errors might exist. Company reserves the right to update the notes at any time.
Clients must sign up to RealtimeBoard.com in order to view the notes. For the sign up, they must use the email address given at form when purchasing the revision notes. Signing up to RealtimeBoard is free of charge and students DO NOT HAVE TO sign up to a premium (paid) account with RealtimeBoard to view the notes. Once the notes are shared with the Client, Client will get notified of this via email. This will happen within 24 hours after the purchase. If Client does not get access to the revision notes after paying, he/she should get in touch at [email protected] and Company will investigate the issue to grant access as soon as possible.
Company takes no responsibility for issues related to using RealtimeBoard.com. From time to time, RealtimeBoard will have maintenance periods while its service (including the notes) might not be available. RealtimeBoard users will get notified by RealtimeBoard.com of such maintenance periods in advance.
6.1 Coming late
6.1.1 For the 20 min. trial lessons, students may be late by a maximum of 10 min. from the pre-scheduled lesson, but this amount of time will be deducted from the 20 min.
6.1.2 For paid lessons I will wait for you to show up for 15 min., but again, if you are late, the lesson will not be prolonged as I might have another one right after yours. If you are late by more than 15 min., the lesson will be cancelled (see cancellations policy for tutoring sessions below).
6.1.3 What if EconDaddy is late?
First of all, this is not likely to happen at all, as I take my lessons very seriously. Yet, it is possible, so here is what will happen in such an unlikely occasion: if I am late by less than 15 min., we will have the lesson and I will give you that extra time whenever I can. If I am late by more than 15 min., the lesson is cancelled and I will give you another lesson free of charge. If you are still there after 15 min., you may also choose to have the lesson, but I will still give you another 60 min. lesson free of charge.
6.2.1 You can cancel lessons latest 24 hours before our pre-scheduled lesson. In this case, we will find another slot as soon as possible.
6.2.2 If you cancel our lesson within the 24 hours preceding the pre-scheduled lesson (or not showing up for more than 15 min. as stated above) then the lesson is gone and no refund applies. However, for students who buy 10 lessons or more, I will reschedule the lesson on one occasion free of charge once for every 10 lessons.
6.2.3 If for any reason I cancel the lesson within the 24 hours preceding the pre-scheduled lesson, then our next lesson will be free of charge. Sounds fair, right?
6.3.1. If you do not attend a lesson (without cancelling it in time as stated above), then section 6.2.2 applies to you without regard to any excuses.
6.3.2 If I am not able to hold a lesson and cannot let you know this within the 24 hours prior to our pre-scheduled lesson, then you will be provided with an additional free private tutoring session.
6.4 Internet connection, equipment
Company takes no responsibility for your internet connection nor does it provide you with equipment. You have to make sure that you have access to the Internet and that you are equipped with a functioning computer with speakers or headphones and a microphone.
7.1. SL and HL course dates
The online exam revision course is held on separate weekends for SL and HL students. In 2023, SL students have their course on 22-23 April, 2023, while HL students have their course on 13-14 May, 2023. The course is made up of 15 hours of live stream study plus a Q&A session.
7.2 Fee of the IB Economics Online Exam Revision Course
The course costs €1499. However, students who have purchased any of Comapny’s services, enjoy a discount. They must get in touch in order to receive it.
7.3 Practice exam
Students enrolled in the course will receive an original set of practice exam papers. The course fees include the marking of student responses to the practice exam questions, but only if such responses are sent to Company via email latest by 30 April 2023.
It is the responsibility of each student who enrolled in the course to attend the course and each session on time.
The course leader will not wait for any latecomers, the sessions will start sharply according to the course schedule published on the exam revision course webpage. If a student cannot attend part or the whole of the course due to any reason (including but not limited to loss of internet connection), then the course fees are non-refundable, unless the attendance was cancelled as per 7.5 below. Therefore it is the responsibility of each course participant to make sure they have stable internet and power connections.
A full refund will be given to cancellations up till 2 weeks prior to the exam revision course. A 50% refund will be given in case cancellation is indicated between 14-7 days prior to the exam revision course. No refund is given if the cancellation is made in the last week prior to the course. Note that the SL and HL courses have different dates.
7.6 Exam performance
While the courses will most certainly boost participants’ knowledge and understanding of IB Economics and thus participants are likely to perform better in exams due to increased confidence thanks to the courses, Company cannot guarantee any specific exam result or performance increase as an outcome from attending either of the courses.
