Dear *** ***, In reply to *** ***'s rejection our position remains the same as stated earlier The struts are not covered parts under the terms of the contract agreement As to any refund the contract under VGeneral Provisions number 7., specifically states a percent refund of the Service Contract will be made less any claims paid within days of the Service Contract Purchase Date The service contract was purchase on July 25, thus exceeding the allotted days of provision Vand denying a refund The procedure of requesting a refund within the days is specifically stated in Provision number “To cancel, You must submit a written request and return the Service Contract to the Administrator.” This was not done within the first days and therefore no refund would be grantedThere are no general provisions providing a pro rated refund in the contract agreement Further any refund that may have been granted would have been paid to the lien holder, *** as stated in the contract agreement.
