Information We Collect About Students:

If you are a student of a course hosted on Summit Evergreen, it is because you have signed up for a course owned by one of our paying customers. If you do not wish to participate in the course in the future, please send an email to the owner of the course. If they are not responsive, please send an email to support@summitevergreen.com and we will ensure that appropriate measures are taken. We will take appropriate action against any customer of ours who uses our service to contact people in an unsolicited or annoying manner. However, as we do not manage any billing systems owned by our customers, we can not offer a refund for any courses or products purchased from our customers.
