Legal and Privacy Statements
Policies, every company has them. They are our operating principles and they help to define our relationship. When in doubt, they help guide us. Here is a summary of ours. They may change from time to time and when they do, updates will be posted here.
If you have any questions or need additional information you can contact us.
Sales and returns policy
PTC Software. All PTC software is for electronic download only. It can take up to 3-5 days for orders to process through the PTC licensing system. Maintenance is valid through 1 year from date of purchase. There are no refunds for software returns. Refunds are available only for in-center training classes that are cancelled by PTC or Single-Sourcing Solutions due to low registration numbers.
Single-Sourcing Solutions Products. All sales are final. Prices may change at any time, and we do not provide price protection or refunds in the event of a price reduction or promotional offering.
Electronic products. Unless otherwise specified, electronic products (books, code, sample files) are not returnable after purchase. No refunds are available for virtual, downloadable products.
Physical products. Physical products purchased in our online store are not returnable or refundable.
Mastermind Memberships. You can cancel your membership at any time. Please note that you must cancel your membership before it renews in order to avoid being charged for the next membership period. If you cancel your membership, the cancellation will become effective at the end of the active membership period (annual or monthly). Refunds will not be provided for any membership. We do not provide credit, refunds, or prorated billing for memberships that are cancelled before the end of the active membership period.
Services. Services that are booked online through our booking application require 1 hour advance notice (1 hour before appointment start) for cancellation and refund. If you must cancel after this deadline and made a prepayment, we will retain your prepayment. If not, and services are tied to a quote we provided, those services are governed by these terms and any additional terms included in the quote.
This site is owned and operated by Single-Sourcing Solutions, Inc. (referred to as “we,” “us,” or “our” herein). By accessing this site, you agree to the terms and conditions set forth in this document. Except as otherwise indicated on this site and except for the trademarks, service marks and trade names of other companies that are displayed on this site, all trademarks, service marks and trade names are proprietary to Single-Sourcing Solutions, Inc.
Collection of Information
Single-Sourcing Solutions will collect and use information obtained from credit card transactions only for business purposes. These business purposes of the payment of products you have requested.
Protecting Your Credit Card Information
The credit card information provided by you to Single-Sourcing Solutions will be stored in a confidential manner. Our employees may access such information only when there is an appropriate business reason to do so, such as when a refund must be issued back to the credit card. We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect your information, and our employees are required to follow these privacy standards.
Disclosure of Your Information
Single-Sourcing Solutions does not disclose any nonpublic information (such as credit card number and their expiration dates) about our customers or former customers to anyone, except as required by law. We disclose information only when it is necessary for the conduct of business, or under circumstances where disclosure is required by law. Information may also be disclosed for audit purposes, to regulatory agencies or for other general administrative services. We do not disclose information about you to other entities who may want to sell their products to you.
The Single-Sourcing Solutions website uses Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol to ensure transaction security.
Financial Relationships and Other Disclosures
We believe that every company should declare their affiliations, relationships, and partnerships.
We are a PTC Channel Partner. This means we earn commission on any Arbortext products or maintenance contracts that we sell directly to customers. We know that Arbortext isn’t right for everyone and not all of our customers use it. We get zero compensation for recommendations. We get zero compensation if you buy the product directly from PTC or from another partner. We chose to partner with Arbortext for many reasons. If you’re interested, just ask; we will tell. Everyone here at Single-Sourcing Solutions started as a customer. None of our employees ever worked for Arbortext or for PTC. We earned our knowledge the hard way and we share it with our customers so they don’t have to work as hard as we did.
Affiliate Link Policy. As of 2016, we are a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to amazon.com. We recommended books and products easily found on Amazon for years before joining this program. In much of our non-PTC product-focused content, you’ll find buttons and text links that redirect to Amazon or another reputable online retailer. If you click on one of these affiliate links, and end up buying something from the retailer, Single-Sourcing Solutions will earn a small commission on your purchase. Other than these affiliate relationships, we have no paid-recommendations or endorsement deals with anyone.
Featured Webinar Speakers and Guest Bloggers. Neither our blog nor the TC Dojo webinar series accepts payment for exposure. No compensation changes hands for an individual to be offered a presentation in the TC Dojo or a guest blog post. All presenters are chosen based on their expertise, past performance, inclusion at industry events and conferences, or were requested by a member of the TC Dojo and Single-Sourcing Solutions communities with respect to a specific topic.
Any recommendation we make, we stand behind as users, implementers, life-long learners, and the respect we have for any people or companies we mention in our publications. We want to emphasize that we do not link to any product only for possible financial gain. Doing so does not provide real value, and is a disservice to our readers. We do not link to products we feel are inferior and we are not paid to deliver positive reviews.
