The Customer has the right to cancel their Program Application and terminate this Contract at any time prior to being matched with a Mentor. In this instance the Customer will not receive a refund for the Program Fee.
The Supplier will use best efforts to secure a suitable match for a Mentee. If a mentee, after meeting their initial match for the first time, does is dissatisfied with their first match they can request a re-match. The Mentee is to note that relationships take time to develop and there is no “perfect fit”. Only one re-match will be made. If the Mentee, after meeting their second match, does not wish to continue with the program they will be entitled to a 50% refund.
The Supplier will promptly notify the Customer if it believes it will not be able to meet the delivery date (three (3) months from the mentee’s onboarding interview date) of being matched with a mentor.

Once a Customer has been matched with a Mentor in the Mentoring Program and have met with their Mentor once, they have fourteen (14) days from the date of their first meeting with their mentor to contact the Supplier via phone or email to request a rematch if they are not satisfied with the match. The Supplier will rematch the Customer with a new Mentor within 2 months from the date of the rematch request. No further rematches will be made at the request of the Mentee.
If for unforeseen circumstances a Mentor is required to exit the Mentoring Program and is unable to continue providing Mentoring services to their Mentee, the Mentee will be rematched with a new Mentor within three months of the Mentor’s cancellation date.
