Eligibility & Information:
You understand that TFS Inc’s staff calculates your eligibility for said services based on the information you provided us when initiating your application process. Any discrepancy in this initial information that is provided to our staff at or after the initial contact, which may affect your eligibility at the time of receipt of your actual client intake documents or responses from other government agencies, waives our responsibility of completing your membership process in a timely manner. This applies to the client’s incorrect/false/misleading information to TFS Inc, both knowingly or unknowingly. In such a case, your application will be placed on hold until you are eligible, and we will resume the services once you are eligible based on government regulations. No refunds will be provided to the client in such cases. You understand that in such an event where you are not eligible for a membership at this time, you authorize TFS Inc to hold your file until you meet the eligibility requirements.
Fees & Service Provision:
You understand that the fees paid by you as a client to TFS Inc are for the completion of your membership application which includes obtaining all required documents for your NEXUS application, including but not limited to revision and correction by our experts prior to submission for final or conditional approval and where necessary, verification and validation of additional information, criminal record/background checks, FOIA requests, entry/exit records and submission of your application. The service is deemed complete upon application submission and confirmation of receipt by the government agency involved. Where TFS Inc may, at its discretion and where necessary, cover a limited amount of fees payable to certain organizations involved, all other fees payable to governing agencies will remain the client’s responsibility.
Completion of Service & Responsibility:
TFS strives to complete and submit each application within a maximum of 30 business days. Service is deemed complete upon application submission and receipt of confirmation from USDHS/CBP, after which TFS Inc will provide the complimentary service of scheduling an appointment with the concerned government agency for the client where necessary and where requested by the client. Appointments may be scheduled based on the availability of government agencies involved within the continental United States or Canada. It is the client’s responsibility to be available for a scheduled appointment, and in the event of an inability to attend a scheduled appointment, contact our offices to request a cancellation/rebooking of a scheduled appointment at least 7 days prior to such an appointment. The booking/scheduling/rescheduling of an appointment with government agencies is a complimentary, value-added service provided to all clients of TFS Inc where/when applicable or necessary and does not carry any monetary value.
Errors or Omissions:
While TFS Inc will do everything possible to ensure all files and documents are complete and are filed with the correct departments and organizations, in case of an error caused by the staff at TFS Inc, every effort will be made to correct the said error. If such an error causes an interruption in the provision of services, TFS Inc will correct the said error and re-file any paperwork, document or file with the said organization or department. Such an error will be compensated by correcting the error and ensuring the processing of the client’s file is completed in a timely manner. A refund for the fees paid will not be provided in such situations.

Responsibility of Client:
It is the policy of TFS Inc. to expedite the processes for which the service is being provided to the client in each and every possible way. However, depending on exceptional circumstances, some clients may need to physically be present/submit their files to the said organization or agency. This is due to the fact that some agencies will not release information to a third party or agency until and unless the client authorizes those organizations or departments in person. If a client’s application process poses such a circumstance, it will be the sole responsibility of the client to assist TFS Inc in doing the needful for that organization to release the required information or paperwork to TFS Inc. TFS Inc does everything possible to ensure the client does not have to obtain their information from government or non-government agencies physically. The majority of our clients do not need to obtain their paperwork from the court or police departments physically however, in such a case where a client is required to physically obtain their own records from a court, police station or any other organization or agency, no compensation, monetary or otherwise can be claimed by the applicant from TFS Inc.
Refund & Cancellation Policy:
Applications may be cancelled for a full refund within 7 calendar days of the initial payment and where this legally binding agreement is signed. For cancellation requests received after 7 calendar days, a 30% cancellation fee applies. The client understands that TFS Inc does not accept cancellations and/or refunds after the services have been completed and the application has been submitted. The client further understands that in the event a chargeback is initiated claiming that the charge was unauthorized, TFS Inc reserves the right to terminate services with no refunds immediately. TFS Inc reserves the right to dispute and/or prosecute such cases in a court of law, and all emails, phone call recordings, signed agreements and communication will be used during such a process where permitted by law.
