Except as otherwise indicated, all website services of the Order of the Legion of St. Michael are free-of-charge.

As such, this Apostolate is supported solely by the generosity of God's people. Some services may ask for free will donations and give a suggested amount of donation, but those services are always available free to those who cannot afford a donation or to those who do not wish to make a donation. Because these free will donations are not fees-for-services or fees-for-goods, but are freely given charitable contributions, refunds of donations are generally not possible. Like most non-profits who rely upon general donations that which is donated is spent on the chartible purposes of the organization and thus is not available for refund. This refund policy specifically relates to, but is not limited to, donations given for the St. Michael Guild and donation given in General.
Purchases of products, on the other hand, shall have their own stated refund policy listed in the section of the Website selling such goods or listed with the company we contract with for the sell of products.
