7. Products and Services Availability

Certain items or services are exclusively available online via our Website. While we have the ability to limit who can purchase or where our products can be sold, we decide on this individually for each case. We also reserve the right to adjust the number of any products or services we offer. Descriptions or availability of our products or services can change anytime, and it's our decision to do so. Furthermore, we can stop offering any product or service, or even all of our services, without giving any prior notice.

When you place an order, you're making an offer to purchase under our terms. But it's crucial to note that placing an order doesn't guarantee your purchase. Even if you receive an order confirmation email, we might decide not to fulfill the order for any reason at our discretion.

In other words: Some items or services are only available on our Website. We can choose where to sell or who can buy our products, and we might change product details or stop selling them without warning. Even if you've placed an order and received a confirmation, it doesn't mean we have to sell it to you.

8. Pricing and Payment Details

The prices, deals, and promotions shown on our Website can change without any prior notification. Importantly, all prices listed on the Website are tax-inclusive, meaning that the price you see is the total amount without any additional tax charges. The charge for a product or service will be the listed price when you place your order, as confirmed in your order confirmation email. If prices go up, it will only affect orders made after the increase.

We always aim to showcase the right price details, but mistakes can happen, like typographical errors or issues related to pricing and product availability. If such mistakes occur, we have the right to correct them and even cancel orders that arose due to those errors. We're not accountable to you or anyone else if we change the price, suspend, or stop offering any products or services, whether in full or partially.

In other words: Prices on our website can change without warning. The price you see already includes taxes, so no extra tax will be added. If we make a mistake in the price or product details, we'll fix it and might cancel affected orders. We're not responsible if we modify prices or stop selling products, for any reason.

10. Account Inactivity and Deletion

To maintain the integrity of our platform, user accounts that have not been accessed (i.e., logged into) or have not engaged with any content (including lessons, courses, and games) for a continuous period of 6 months will be considered "inactive" and may be subject to automatic deletion. However, this rule does not apply to accounts that have made any purchase on our platform; such accounts will never be automatically deleted, regardless of inactivity.

Further information regarding account deletion due to inactivity can be found in our Privacy Policy.

In other words: If you don't log into your account or engage with our content for more than 6 months, we might automatically delete it. However, if you've ever bought anything from us, your account is safe from this rule. You can find more specifics in our Privacy Policy.

11. Trademark Guidelines

The name of our Company, the terms 'Chessly' and 'GothamChess,' our Company logo, and any related branding elements, such as product names, designs, and slogans, are the exclusive trademarks of the Company or entities associated with or licensed by us. You are not allowed to use these trademarks without receiving written consent from the Company first. Any other brand names, designs, or slogans you see on this website belong to their rightful owners and are their protected trademarks.

In other words: Our company has specific names and logos that belong to us, like Chessly and GothamChess. You can't use them unless you ask us and we say yes. Any other company names or logos you see on our site? They belong to those companies, not us.

12. Course Refund Policy

We value your satisfaction. That's why we offer a straightforward 7-Day Refund Policy for our Courses. Here's how it works:

  • Timeframe: You have 7 days from the date of purchase to request a refund.
  • How to Request: To initiate a refund, email us at support@chessly.freshdesk.com. Please include your account details and the specifics of your purchase.
  • Amount Refunded: Once your refund is approved, we'll return the full amount you paid for the specific Courses you're returning, and your access to those Courses will be revoked.
  • Eligibility: Refunds are granted if you request within the 7-day window and as long as you've adhered to our Terms of Use.
  • Policy Abuse: We're here to help, but if we identify any misuse of our refund policy, we reserve the right to deny your refund request and may also close your account.

In other words: If you buy a Course from us and decide within a week that it's not for you, just send us an email with your purchase details, and we'll give you your money back. But remember, you've only got 7 days to do this. And if we think someone's trying to game the system, we might refuse the refund and close their account.

13. Course Exchange Policy

Your satisfaction is important to us. If you feel a different Course might better suit your needs, here's our clear and concise Exchange Policy for our Courses:

  • Timeframe: You have 7 days from the date of purchase to request an exchange.
  • How to Request: To ask for a course exchange, reach out to support@chessly.freshdesk.com. Include your account information and the details of the exchange. Upon approval, we'll facilitate the exchange for you.
  • Exchange Limitations: Every course you purchase can be exchanged only once. For example, if you switch from Course A to Course B, you can't later exchange Course B for another course.
  • Value Limitations: A course can only be swapped for another course of equal or lesser value. If you choose a course of lesser value for the exchange, we won't refund the difference in price.
  • Refunds After Exchanges: Once a course has been exchanged, the original purchase is no longer eligible for a refund.
  • Abuse of Exchange Policy: We're here to help, but if we observe any abuse of our exchange policy, we have the right to deny future exchange requests and might even need to terminate your account.

In other words: You have a 7-day window after purchasing a course to exchange it for another. But remember, you can only make one swap per course, and if you choose a cheaper course as a replacement, we don't refund the price difference. Also, once you've exchanged a course, the original purchase can't be refunded. If you try to game the system, we might have to stop offering you exchanges or close your account.

14. Gifting

Course Vouchers are a feature on Chessly that allows users to purchase a course as a gift for others.


  • Course Vouchers purchased on Chessly are non-refundable and cannot be exchanged.
  • Course Vouchers have no monetary value and cannot be redeemed for cash or any other currency.
  • Course Vouchers are only valid and redeemable on Chessly.
  • Course Vouchers may occasionally be available for purchase at a discounted price. However, the price paid for the Course Voucher does not affect its value.
  • Course Vouchers can only be redeemed for 1 course with a value equal to or less than the Course Voucher's value. The course's value is determined by the original price of the course, without any discounts or promotions applied.
  • If a Course Voucher is redeemed for a course with a value less than the value of the Course Voucher then the remaining value of the Course Voucher is forfeited.
  • Course Vouchers issued by Chessly do not have an expiry date and can be redeemed at any time.

In other words: Course Vouchers are a feature on Chessly that allows users to purchase a course as a gift for others.

The rules for this feature are:

  • You can't get your money back or swap a Course Voucher for something else once you've bought it.
  • Course Vouchers can not be turned into cash or used for anything other than courses on Chessly.
  • Even if Course Vouchers are on sale, their value stays the same. If you buy a USD 80 Course Voucher for USD 40 on sale, it's still worth USD 80 when redeemed.
  • You can only use a Course Voucher to get 1 course that has a value equal to or less than the Course Voucher's value. Discounts are not considered when determining the course's value.
  • Any difference in value between the Course Voucher and the redeemed course is forfeited. For example: If you have a Course Voucher that has a value of USD 80 and you redeem the Course Voucher for a course valued at USD 64 then the remaining USD 16 from the Course Voucher's value is lost.
  • Course Vouchers from Chessly never expire, so you can use them whenever you want.

15. Chessly Plus Cancellation & Refund Policy

Overview: Chessly Plus is a premium subscription service that grants members access to exclusive lectures, training tools, and additional benefits.

Billing: Subscription fees for Chessly Plus are charged upfront and cannot be refunded. This means we don't offer refunds for partial months or for any period that you didn't use the service.

Automatic Renewal: Unless you decide to cancel, your Chessly Plus subscription will renew automatically. To avoid being charged for the next period, you need to cancel your subscription before the current one ends.

Cancellation Process: If you wish to cancel your subscription, you can do this at any time. You can either:

  • Log into your Chessly account and follow the cancellation steps.
  • Reach out to our customer support team for assistance.

Even if you cancel, you'll still have access to all Chessly Plus features until the end of your current subscription period.

Refund Exceptions: Though our policy is to not provide refunds, in some special situations and at our own discretion, we may consider refunds. If you are given a refund, your access to Chessly Plus will be terminated immediately.

In other words: When you sign up for Chessly Plus, you're billed right away and typically, we don't offer refunds. If you decide not to continue with Chessly Plus, remember to cancel before your subscription renews to avoid the next charge. You'll still get all the Chessly Plus benefits until your current subscription period ends. In very special cases, we might offer a refund, but that's up to us, and if we do, you'll lose access to Chessly Plus right away.

25. Geographic Limitations

The Website is owned and operated from New York, USA. We can't guarantee that everything on our Website is suitable or available for use outside the US.

It's up to you to make sure your computer and data are safe. If something goes wrong (like a virus attack or data loss) because of using our Website or linked sites, we can't be held responsible. When you use our Website, it's at your own risk. We provide everything "as is" without any promises, whether stated or implied. In simpler terms, we can't guarantee that our Website will always be safe, uninterrupted, or fit your specific needs.

27. Disclaimer of Warranties

We try our best to ensure the Website is safe, but we can't promise it's free from harmful things like viruses. If you're downloading or streaming from our site, or any site really, you need to take precautions to protect your computer and data. If anything bad happens, like a virus attack or data loss, it's on you. Also, we're giving you access to our Website "as is", which means we aren't making any promises about how it will work, its quality, or if it will always be available. No one linked to our company is saying the Website will always be perfect or that it'll meet all your expectations. As much as the law lets us, we're not giving any warranties about our Website.

In other words: We do our best with the Website, but we can't promise it's 100% safe or perfect. If you download or stream something and your computer gets a virus, it's up to you to handle it.

28. Limitation on Liability

If something goes wrong because of our company or anyone connected to us, our maximum liability to you will be what you've paid us for our products or services in the past year. This is the most we'll owe, regardless of the reason for the claim, be it a contract issue, a mistake on our part, or something else. There are some types of liabilities that the law says we can't avoid or limit, and this cap won't apply to those.

In other words: If our company makes a mistake or causes an issue, the most you could get from us as compensation is what you've paid us in the last year. However, if there are legal reasons we have to compensate you more, we will.

29. Indemnification

By using this Website, you're agreeing to take responsibility and cover any costs, damages, or legal issues that come up if you break our Terms of Use or misuse our Website in any way.

If we face any legal actions, fees, or expenses because of your actions, you'll need to reimburse us for them.

In other words: If you break our rules or use our website in the wrong way and it causes problems or legal issues for us, you'll have to cover the costs and defend us in any related disputes. If we get sued or face any expenses because of something you did, you'll need to pay for it.

By using our Website, you're agreeing to these terms and won't object to these courts having the authority over such matters.

In other words: If there's a disagreement or legal issue related to our Website, New York laws will be used to settle it, and any legal case will happen in New York. However, we can also decide to take legal action against you wherever you live. By using our Website, you agree to this and won't challenge the authority of these courts in such situations.

31. Arbitration

If the Company decides, it can require you to resolve any disagreements related to these Terms of Use or your use of the Website through a final and decisive arbitration process. This arbitration will follow the Rules of Arbitration of the American Arbitration Association and will use New York law.

In other words: If there's a disagreement related to these terms or the use of our Website, the Company can choose to have it settled through a set arbitration process, following specific rules and using New York's laws, rather than through traditional courts.

32. Limitation on Time to File Claims

If you have a dispute or issue related to these Terms of Use or the Website, you must take legal action within one (1) year from when the problem started. If you wait longer than that, you won't be able to bring up that dispute or issue in the future.

In other words: You have a one-year window to bring up any legal concerns related to these terms or the website. If you don't act within that year, you lose the chance to raise that concern forever.

33. Waiver and Severability

If the Company doesn't enforce or act on a specific term in these Terms of Use, it doesn't mean they're giving up the right to do so later. Not acting on a right doesn't mean that right is waived.

If any part of these Terms of Use is found to be unlawful or not valid by a court, that part will be reduced or removed, but the rest of the terms will still apply.

In other words: Just because the Company doesn't react immediately to a breach of these terms doesn't mean they're okay with it. Also, if a court says one part of these terms isn't valid, the rest of the terms won't be affected and will still stand.

34. Entire Agreement

These Terms of Use, along with our Privacy Policy, are the complete and only agreement between you and Chessly LLC about the Website. They replace any previous understandings or agreements, whether they were spoken or written.

In other words: All previous agreements or understandings you might have had with Chessly LLC about the Website are replaced by these Terms of Use and the Privacy Policy. This is the full agreement between you and the company regarding the Website.
