Protecting Account

How to improve your account security

Important: If you suspect that an unauthorized party has already accessed or attempted to access your account, please contact us immediately.

The following tips are proven ways to improve your account security:

1. Set a secure password

  • Use a combination of letters or numbers ? e.g. beatlesfan28, with no spaces between
  • Use multiple words and numbers without spaces ? e.g. thebestboss84
  • Never use single words that can be found in any dictionary ? e.g. manager or bamboo
  • Never use personal information others can easily obtain or guess ? e.g. your name, phone number, or birth date
  • Never use your email address as the password
  • Never use common passwords ? e.g. 123456 or ABCDEF

2. Sign in to BitKul regularly

Signing into BitKul ensures your account information stays current

3. Be cautious when you receive requests for private or sensitive information

Never click on links in emails to access BitKul web pages if you suspect the message might not really be from us. Avoid filling out forms in email messages that ask for your personal information, such as your Member ID, password and other information. Most sign-in pages can be identified by addresses that begin with https://bitkul.com/register.

4. Use anti-virus software and a firewall

Some computer viruses steal your password and financial account information. For this reason, it is recommended that you install anti-virus software and update it on a regular basis. A firewall is a system designed to prevent unauthorized parties (usually referred to as “hackers”) from gaining access to sensitive information stored on your computer.

What if the purchased item is no longer available?

There are a number of different reasons why an item may be removed from the market and are therefore no longer available for download.

We recommend that you download and save an item as soon as you buy it, but if the item was removed before you had a chance to download it, refer to our  support Team please.

Refund Rules

Item is “not as described”

An item is “not as described” if it is materially different from the item description or preview so you should expect the seller to “tell it like it is” when it comes to the features and functionality of items. If it turns out the item is “not as described” you will be entitled to a refund.

Item doesn’t work the way it should

If an item doesn’t work the way it should and can’t easily be fixed you are entitled to a refund of the item. This includes situations where the item has a problem that would have stopped you from buying it if you’d known about the problem in the first place. If the item can be fixed, then the seller is required to do so promptly by updating the item otherwise you are entitled to a refund of that item.

Item has a security vulnerability

If an item contains a security vulnerability and can’t easily be fixed you are entitled to a refund of the item. If the item can be fixed, then the seller should do so promptly by updating the item. If the item contains a security vulnerability that is not patched in an appropriate timeframe then you are entitled to a refund of that item.

Item support is promised but not provided

If a seller advertisers their item as including item support and you are not provide that support in accordance with the item support policy you will be entitled to a refund of your purchased support.

Why a refund may not be given

If the item is materially similar to the description and preview and works the way it should, there is generally no obligation to provide a refund in situations like the following:

  • you don’t want it after you’ve purchased it;
  • the item did not meet your expectations;
  • you simply change your mind;
  • you bought an item by mistake;
  • you do not have sufficient expertise to use the item;
  • you ask for goodwill;
