Delivery: All transcripts and verification orders will be delivered within a maximum of 40 working days of orders where the tertiary institution is outside of the ETX-NG network and within 20 working days where the tertiary institution is within the ETX-NG network.
Refunds and Cancellations: Payments made by customers are final and non-refundable. When we receive payment from our customers, we make automatic payments to the tertiary institutions we deal with to obtain their services. Because we do not receive refunds on these services, ETX-NG will not offer refunds once payment has been made and confirmed. In addition, our services predominantly involve straight through processing which may have involved our human and technology interventions. However, in instances where we are unable to obtain the transcript or verification information from the tertiary institution within 60 working days, customers will receive a refund amounting to 25% of the total value paid. The refund will be made to the same source where we received the funds within a one month (30 days) of agreed refund request.
Returns: All our services are digital and do not involve stock handling as such, returns are not applicable.

Through our various web sites we provide information about us and our various products and services including transcripts on demand and the Global Electronic Transcript Delivery Network. We use information that we collect from you and your school to effectively provide our online services and to maximize your experience while using our services. Please be assured that we will not use your personally identifiable information for any service without your specific prior approval.

What information does ETX-NG collect?
Like many Web sites we automatically track certain information about you as you use our site. This information may include, for example, your IP address, browser type and Internet connection speed. In addition, we may employ the use of “cookies” in certain areas of our site. A cookie is a small amount of data that is sent to your browser from a Web server that may be stored on your computer’s hard drive. For the most part, the cookies we use would be “session cookies,” meaning they are automatically deleted at the end of the site visit. We also collect information you choose to provide us through the Web service or by email. When using the services offered on the site, ETX-NG may collect information regarding such use including any communications made or transactions entered into by you or your designated staff as applicable.
Who is collecting your information?
When you provide information through the Site, the information is transmitted through the Internet and stored on servers owned and maintained by Darrell Hill Limited.
How do we use your information?
Any personally or institution identifying information that we collect is used to facilitate the provision of services that you may order. For schools, this may include posting the school’s name on the site as an institution that uses or accepts the use of ETX-NG services.
With whom do we share your information?
Our business hinges on the trust you place in us. Beyond the normal and expected information exchange to operate within the ETX-NG trusted network, we will not release any of your personally identifying information or institution identifying information to any third party without your consent. We will release your information if we believe that such action is appropriate to comply with any legal process,
We use sophisticated technology designed to protect your information and all transmissions made through our Site. Here are some of the highlights:
- The personal or institution identifying information that you provide us is stored in secured facilities with restricted access, and protected by protocols and procedures designed to ensure the physical security of such information. All individuals who have access to such information are trained in the maintenance and security of such information and we limit access of such information by our employees to the minimum information reasonably required in order to provide prompt, high quality services.
- Academic transcripts are deleted from the ETX-NG network and servers 24 hours after they are first opened by the recipient.
- All personal or institution identifying information that you enter on the site is encrypted by 256-bit secure sockets layer encryption protocols.
- Use of the service requires the user name and user-selected password assigned by you during registration. The use of a password ensures that access to your account is limited to you. In order to ensure the effectiveness of a password protection system, you must diligently maintain the confidentiality of your password. ETX-NG is not responsible for any unauthorized access to and resulting use of your account accomplished through the use of your valid and current password.
Despite the most thorough of precautions, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be entirely secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our site, and you engage in such transmissions at your own risk. Once we receive a transmission from you, we will attempt to ensure its security on our systems and for any transmission of the information we may make as part of the Services.
- ETX-NG undertakes not to violate the privacy of all card holders who transact with us through any of the payment systems utilised by us. The payment systems include Paypal, WorldPay, Verified by Visa and Interswitch.
