  • The dispute management process will be completed within 28 days from the date on which the client provides written notice to CDMC that it wishes to have the dispute referred to neutral expert determination.

Our Operating Protocol

This is a summary of the protocol that will be made part of any agreement you make with CDMC.

If any client of CDMC seeks a refund of moneys paid to CDMC, and CDMC doesn’t agree to make the refund, the following steps will apply as part of CDMC’s dispute management protocol:

  1. CDMC will provide written reasons to the client within 7 days of refusing the refund request.
  2. If the Client isn’t willing to accept those reasons, and it wishes to maintain its claim for a refund, it must so notify CDMC in writing.
  3. CDMC, upon receipt of this notice, will within 7 days refer the matter for neutral expert determination by an accredited advanced mediator to be appointed by Resolution Institute (https://www.resolution.institute).
  4. The appointed neutral expert will make a final decision on the dispute within 21 days.

CDMC and the Client both agree to be bound by that determination.
