Note that while credit card, debit card, and PayPal order processing is automated and immediate, wire transfers and purchase orders require more time. Refer to the payment options section for more information.
When you request a refund for an item you have purchased before delivery has been completed or accepted, it is generally considered a return
In the case of an electronically downloaded product or online application, this is a request for a refund prior to you receiving or accessing the product. For scheduled offers, like classes, you will not have taken the class, and you must meet drop policy conditions. In the case of a physical product, you may not have received the item or the item may have arrived in a damaged condition. In these cases, please contact customer service as soon as possible.
The drop policy for scheduled classes require that reschedules or refunds are only granted if you contact customer service and request to be dropped prior to 14 days before the class begins. If you request to be dropped at 14 days or less before class beginning, we cannot refund your money, but may offer you an alternative class date and location, if available.
To return an unused item or service, we require that your make your request to us by contacting
customer service within 30 days of purchase. We will refund your money once we have validated that you have not accessed your product, or that you meet the class drop policies, or once we have received your return shipment to us. You may be responsible for return shipping charges.
If you have decided that you have purchased the wrong product or the wrong quantity, do not use your product, and contact customer service immediately. Returns completed within the same business day may be considered a cancelled sale rather than a return.
We will make the best effort to refund your money in the same method and to the same account you used to pay for your purchase, and refund processing usually begins within 48 hours (United States Pacific Time) of your request. The one exception is United States wire transfers. If you paid using wire transfer from a U.S. bank, we will attempt to refund your money via check to the billing address and contact provided within the order. If you wish to receive a return wire transfer instead, you must request that at the time of your refund request. Note that wire transfer funds are non-refundable from both your bank and ours, and therefore, you will be responsible for both sending and receiving fees a second time, and we will deduct our fees (US $30) from your refund.
If you are an international customer that paid by wire transfer requesting a refund, by default, we will return your funds to you via wire transfer, with the US $30 transfer fee deducted from your refund. If you would prefer to receive a check for your refund, please request a check when you make your request for refund, and we will send it to the billing address and contact information that you provided in the order.
Some products and services that are scheduled or are subscription-based may provide for a refund, reschedule, or credit if we cancel it before delivery is complete, and we may contact the buyer and/or the user of the product to notify you if this should happen. Always refer to the product, program, or service terms and conditions, or the end-user license agreement (EULA) for more information. Or contact
If you request a refund after downloading files, accessing an application, taking a class or receiving and using a physical product, this is generally considered a request for a guarantee refund.
The Cisco Learning Network Store team would like you to have the best possible experience with the products and services you buy. While each product or service may have its own specific return and guarantee policies, the store generally does not grant refunds on products that have already been used.
If you have a problem with your product or service, we recommend you contact us so that we can help resolve the issue
During the checkout process, you may be requested to accept a terms and conditions agreement. If you are presented with this option, it means that your acceptance is required for you to purchase and use the product or service.

The Cisco Learning Network Store provides product ratings and reviews to help customers evaluate available products. Below are guidelines that govern how Cisco manages product ratings and reviews on the Cisco Learning Network Store.
How are ratings calculated?
Ratings are provided based on a range of 1 to 5 stars.
Ratings for a single product are consolidated to provide an average product rating.
Who can post a rating and review?
Any customer who has purchased a product can post a rating and review for that product. This is limited to customers who purchase directly from the Cisco Learning Network Store and does not apply to a purchasing agent purchasing the product on behalf of another user.
The Cisco Learning Network Store Manager will block all ratings and reviews from people who submit ratings or reviews for products they have not purchased.
The Cisco Learning Network Store Manager has the authority to monitor and allow/block a single rating and review.
The Cisco Learning Network Store Manager has the authority to modify or comment on any review that they find inappropriate or not applicable.
The Cisco Learning Network Store Manager and Cisco Product Managers may interact with and provide feedback to customers via comments on an as-needed basis to enhance the reviewer’s experience with Cisco products.
How long will a rating and review stay on the Cisco Learning Network Store?
The Cisco Learning Network Store ratings and reviews will be retained as long as that version of the product is available on the Cisco Learning Network Store. Ratings and reviews for products that have been refreshed/updated (due to minor changes) will be retained "as is."
The goal of the Cisco Learning Network Store is to provide users the most relevant/applicable reviewer insights. Therefore, ratings and reviews for previous products that have significant changes or warrant a new version will be removed when the new product is released to the Cisco Learning Network Store, and the ratings and reviews summary score will be re-calculated based on the ratings that apply to the current product.
The Cisco Learning Network Store offers customer service 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, in up to 17 languages for support of our global customers. For more information on how to contact our customer service department, view the Contacts & Feedback page.

Effective December 16,2013,the Cisco Digital Libraries product line has been retired on the Cisco Learning Network Store and is no longer available for sale.
Current users may continue to access their digital libraries through Safari's website http://help.safaribooksonline.com/?kb=cl.
How do I access my Cisco Digital Library?
Your Cisco Digital Libraries subscription may be accessed by logging in to the Cisco Learning Network Store and clicking the Order Status & History tab. Scroll through your list of products until you locate the digital library you wish to use. Click View Order Detail for that digital library. Next, click the Launch button, which will automatically log you in to the Cisco Digital Library portal (powered by Safari Books Online). Once you are on the portal, a help facility can familiarize you with how to use the site.
How can I make sure I can retain all of my bookmarks, tags, and so on, if my subscription is close to expiring and I know that I need more time with the product?
Simply purchase the same library with the same subscription term before your subscription ends. Note that the new subscription will begin at the time of purchase and will overlap with any time that you may have left on the existing subscription. Therefore, in order to minimize the overlap period without losing any of your customizations, you should purchase your new subscription one day before your existing subscription ends. You will receive a reminder email before your subscription ends to notify you about the remaining time on your subscription.
Warning: If you purchase the same library with a different subscription term - for example, if you originally purchased Cisco CCNA® Certification Library for three months and you then purchase the Cisco CCNA Certification Library for six months, you will lose any customizations that you have made.
What happens if my subscription ends but I would still like to access the library I have purchased?
If your subscription expires, all of your customizations such as highlights, tags, and so on, will be lost and you need to begin again with a newly purchased subscription.
What are the browser and Flash system requirements to access Cisco Digital Libraries?
Cisco Digital Libraries has the same requirements as Safari Books Online. It uses Flash version 9 or above, and the following browsers and operating systems:
Internet Explorer, versions 7 and 8
Windows: XP, Vista, 7
Firefox, version 3.x or newer
Windows: XP, Vista, 7
Macintosh: Tiger, Leopard, Snow Leopard
Linux version 2.6 plus
The browser that you are using must support 128-bit encryption in order to function correctly. Each of the browsers that are listed above supports 128-bit encryption.
Where can I find additional information and help with using my Cisco Digital Library?
To get additional information about how to use your Cisco Digital Library, please visit http://help.safaribooksonline.com/?kb=cl.
How can I watch videos with my Cisco Digital Library on my iPad or other tablet?
You can use the Mobile User Interface (MUI) provided by Safari Books Online to view videos on your Apple iPad or other tablet device. To do so, first access your Cisco Digital Libraries through the browser interface on your device. Once you have launched your library, click Switch to Mobile Version at the bottom of the page (in the footer) to navigate to the Safari Books Online mobile site.
If you are using an iPad, another option is to install and use Safari To Go, a free app available from the iTunes Store.
How do I get my TelePresence modules to run on an Apple Mac, iPad or a PC?
For instructions on how to view these modules, please refer to MLearning FAQ section.
Why are there multiple TelePresence files to download for some modules?
There are two reasons for this:
If there are only certain subjects within a module that you wish to view, you can choose to download only those files.
Dividing the files limits their size to increase download speed. In addition, the arrangement allows you to manage and reduce the amount of memory space used on your device at a given time.
Why does it take so long to download the learning modules?
Downloading time will vary based on your device's capabilities and the Internet bandwidth. These files contain live video and will generally be larger than other files that contain only audio.
What is the best way to view TelePresence modules?
TelePresence modules are supported on PC, Apple iPad, and Mac. The recommended devices for best performance for these modules are PC and iPad. It is also recommended to use earphones to hear the instructor clearly.
