The following section is about subscribing to biotikur balance products.
- Money-back guarantee: the terms "money-back guarantee" or "risk-free" shall only be construed as entitling the consumer to a full, 100% refund of the full purchase price for a product or the first 30-day period of a subscription product if the customer either 1) perceives adverse effects from taking the product within the 30 days of their first order, or 2) does not perceive an improvement within 30 days of their first order. Refund claims must be made within 60 days of the postmarked date of fulfillment. Further purchases for further periods or further products are not subject to the money-back guarantee. Limit one refund per customer.

This can only be done in the personal customer account. There is also the possibility to skip the next delivery.
- The 30 day subscription will be renewed for 30 days at a time unless the customer cancels via their personal account four days prior to the expiration of the last 30 days. If cancellation is received after that period, cancellation shall apply to the following 30-day subscription product.
- The timing of the notice period was chosen because it gives us a sufficiently large window of time to stop shipping the ongoing delivery in time.
