Lietect (“company” or “10X Reputation” or “we” or “us” or “our”) and the client (“user” or “you”) enter this contract on our website located at Lietect.com (the “Website”).
BY USING OUR SERVICES, YOU ARE ACCEPTING ALL TERMS OUTLINED IN THIS CONTRACT AND AGREE THAT YOU HAVE READ THEM ENTIRELY.
Each of our services has their own specific refund policy. By using our services, you agree to the following refund and cancellation policy:
- Refunds: If we are unable to delete the fake, misleading, or unfair review(s) within ninety (90) days from time of full payment, it’s free. If you pay for 3 fake reviews to be deleted and we are only able to have 2 deleted within 90 days, you will be refunded for one (1) review – which would be a $999 refund (assuming you did not use a coupon code). Refunds are paid by paper check only and mailed via USPS (United States Postal Service). You also have the option to extend the guarantee period so we can continue to work on getting the review(s) deleted without missing the refund eligibility timeframe. *We do not offer refunds via a credit or reversal to your credit/debit card for any reason.*
- Delays/Exceptions: If we have a fake, misleading, or unfair review deleted within the 90-day guarantee and it is reposted, we will have it deleted again for free. Reviews that are reposted are not covered by the 90-day guarantee.
Example: If we delete a review on day 80 and it is reposted on day 88, you will not be refunded if we are not able to have it deleted again by the 90th day. Although we will have it deleted again as fast as possible, we can not control when/if a fake review is reposted.
Suppress Articles & Links
- Refunds: If we are unable to have the article, link, or Ripoff report pushed down/suppressed to at least the 2nd page of the search results (off the first page) for the specific keyword(s) you entered when signing up within ninety (90) days from time of full payment, it’s free. If you pay for 3 links to be pushed down/suppressed and we are only able to have 2 pushed down/suppressed within 90 days, you will be refunded for one (1) link – which would be a $2,999 refund (assuming you did not use a coupon code and only selected one keyword). If you pay for 1 link to be suppressed for 5 keywords and we are only able to have 3 of the keywords suppressed, you are eligible for a refund for 2 of the keywords – which would be $1,199.60 (assuming you did not use a coupon code). Refunds are paid by paper check only and mailed via USPS (United States Postal Service). You also have the option to extend the guarantee period so we can continue to work on getting the article, link, or Ripoff Report pushed down/suppressed without missing the refund eligibility timeframe. *We do not offer refunds via a credit or reversal to your credit/debit card for any reason.*
- Delays/Exceptions: If we have the article/link/Ripoff Report off the first page for a specific keyword within the 90-day guarantee and it resurfaces, you are not eligible for a refund for that specific keyword/link. But, we will have it pushed down/suppressed again for free.
After submitting your order, cancellations are not allowed for any reason other than an exact duplicate order. By submitting your order, you agree to pay the full balance listed on your order, including any late fees (should they apply). If on a payment plan, continued payments are still in full effect and will be applicable to our collection policies.
Due to the nature of our business, we may be unable to accept certain payment methods you may prefer to use to pay with. If we do not accept your preferred payment method, even if we originally advertised that we accepted the payment method in question, you will need to make other arrangements to submit payment to Lietect using one of our actively accepted methods.
You agree not to issue a chargeback or start a dispute with your card company within the guarantee period. If a chargeback or dispute is started within the 90 day guarantee period, the guarantee period is paused as the funds are temporarily pulled from our account. Once the chargeback/dispute is canceled – the 90 day guarantee period is reset and begins again.
Example: It is day 55 and you are unhappy it is taking longer than planned, even though we are still within the guarantee period. So you decide to call your card company to start a chargeback/dispute. We receive a notification on the 58th day that you issued a chargeback/dispute. We stop working on your case and provide this refund policy to your bank. Once your bank (or you) cancels the chargeback/dispute and the funds are returned to our account, we will begin working again and the 90-day guarantee is reset and begins again.
Coupons & Discounts
If a coupon code is used, the total coupon/discount is subtracted from your refund eligibility amount.
Our guarantee starts the minute we process and receive full payment for your order, not when you place your order or make an initial payment (initial payments are applicable to those who are on a payment plan).
Invoices not paid within 5 days from the day you placed your order will be charged a compounding late fee of 5% per week. After your order is 1 week past due (7 days), any previous discounts on your account will be voided and readded to your total balance due. At this point, your 7 day compounding late fee will be based on the new order total.
After 90 days, past due invoices will be sent to a collection agency. You agree that you are liable and will pay for the order total plus all collection fees, even if your order has not been successfully completed or even partially completed yet. Your order and all collection fees must be paid before the guarantee period starts. The weekly compounding late fees will continue to be added until the full balance has been paid.
Any bounced checks or payments (example: checks drawn on insufficient funds) will be subject to a $35 fee and will be forwarded to collections.
Extended Guarantee Periods
Some clients enter an extended guarantee period of 120 days, 150 days, or 180 days when signing up. All terms outlined in this contract remain the same and the only differentiator is the guarantee period if written confirmation has been received by a company official of the specific extended guarantee period.
Transfers are not allowed for any reason. If you sign up to have a specific review deleted, you can not contact us after sign up to change it to a different review. If you sign up to have a specific link suppressed, you can not contact us after sign up to change it to a different link.
If the guarantee period has passed, we were not successful, and you have not received a refund confirmation email – you agree not to hold us liable and further understand it is your sole responsibility to visit the request a refund page to manually request a refund. This must be done within 15 days (not business days) after the end of your guarantee period. Any refund requests submitted more than 15 days (not business days) after the end of the guarantee period are not valid and you will not be eligible for a refund. There are no exceptions, extensions, additional grace periods, or delays to this term for any reason whatsoever. Please make sure you submit the request on time and with accurate information. Submitting inaccurate information will void the request. Once a request is submitted, it can take up to 5-7 business days for it to be reviewed.
Refusal to Pay
We hope it would never come to this. We start working hard on your order immediately after you sign up, even before you pay us. Whatever the reason, some clients decide they aren’t going to pay for their order (ex: some clients try to claim they are the reason a review was deleted or a link was suppressed). Should you decide not to pay your invoice in full (including any & all late fees), you give Lietect (& all associates) complete and irrevocable permission to perform reverse reputation management services on your & your company page(s). This includes, but is not limited to: posting multiple 1-star reviews from various accounts, performing SEO on your negative links to bring them up in the search results, etc…
Further, in the rare case we have to do reverse reputation management due to your refusal to pay… you waive any & all legal claims against Lietect (& all associates) including claims of defamation, libel, etc…
The following are some examples of “refusal to pay”: 1) You do not respond to Lietect’s debt collection attempts for a period of 7 days (not business days); 2) We successfully complete your order and you do not respond to Lietect’s debt collection attempts for a period of 3 days (not business days); 3) You tell Lietect you are not paying for your order; 4) You reverse a payment to Lietect; 5) You demand to pay by a payment method we can not accept; 6) You claim that you will pay after we are successful; 7) Any other action Lietect, in its’ sole opinion, interprets as a refusal to pay.

Success – Review Deletions
A successfully completed order (also known as “success”) means you are not eligible for a refund. This is due to the amount of work that goes into filing for the deletion of a review. All of the following reasons would define your order as a success: 1) A review was deleted or is not showing. This includes a reviewer’s profile being suspended/deactivated or if they delete/edit the original review; 2) You reach out to the review platform after placing your order with us. This includes reaching out via phone, email, snail mail, social media, chat, or by flagging/reporting the review; 3) You reply to the review after placing your order with us; 4) You “turn off” the reviews on your page, even temporarily.
Abuse of Support
Abuse of our customer service team is not tolerated. We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to limit or disable your use of some or all of the following forms of support including phone support, SMS/text support, live chat support, social media support, and email support. Abuse of our customer service includes, but is not limited to, 1) Contacting members of our team multiple times every day just to ask the same question again; 2) Verbal abuse; 3) Harassment; 4) Communicating threats.
If you are limited or disabled due to abuse of support, your order will remain active and you can contact us via email and wait for a reply, which can take up to 7 business days.
Note: This term of our contract is for actual abuse of our support channels and verbal abuse of our customer service team members. Although we have seen less than 0.5% of our clients fall into this category, we simply cannot allow it to continue.
