TERMS OF PARTICIPATION
Please READ carefully. By purchasing this product, the following Terms and Conditions (the “Agreement”) are entered into by Pod Sound School, LLC. (“Company”, “we”, or “us”) and you (“Client” or “You”), and you agree to the following terms stated herein. The Company and you may be referred to collectively as “Parties” in this Agreement.
The Company agrees to provide the "Smart & Simple Podcasting Group Coaching Experience" (the "Program"), as detailed on the registration web page. The Program may include digital or downloadable resources, an online course, one-on-one or group coaching, workshops, training sessions, and online private forums operated by the Company (for any purpose), whether on a website hosted by the Company or a third-party website, such as an online course platform. By participating in the Program, you agree to adhere to all policies and procedures outlined in this Agreement, including those incorporated by reference.
In the Program, you will participate in a virtual group coaching environment with a coach provided by the Company, who will guide you in developing a content marketing strategy, launching a podcast, and creating content assets. The Company will not create a podcast, content marketing strategy, or any content marketing assets, including podcast cover art, graphics, or videos for you but will support you in learning the necessary steps to create a podcast, content marketing strategy, and content assets independently. To achieve the expected results of the Program, you must attend all coaching sessions and complete all required assignments.
In exceptional circumstances, up to 2 weeks of sessions may be rescheduled within the 6-week program duration. Beyond this, any incomplete or unattended sessions will be considered forfeited.
Occasionally, the Company may offer bonuses to individuals who enroll in the Program. You will be entitled to any bonuses offered at the time of your enrollment. Bonuses are not guaranteed to be available throughout the entire duration of the Program and may vary depending on specific live and automated promotions during the year.
The Company reserves the right to introduce additional Program components from time to time for any subgroup of participants. These extra components are considered a bonus and are not part of the base services included in the Program. The selection of participants who may partake in any additional Program components is at the sole discretion of the Company.
This Program is designed and suitable only for individuals aged 18 and above, as some content may be inappropriate for children. The Company disclaims any liability for the use of the Program by individuals under 18 years old.
The Program is tailored for online business owners and entrepreneurs who will apply the skills and strategies learned throughout the Program to their businesses.
In exchange for access to the Program, you agree to pay the following fees:
You may choose between a single payment of $3,497 (due immediately) or 6 monthly payments of $597 each. If you select the payment plan, you must make the initial payment today, and your chosen payment method will be automatically charged the subsequent 5 payments monthly, totaling $3,582. If you opt for monthly payments and do not complete the Program, you remain responsible for the remaining payments. In case of any missed payments, the Company will immediately suspend your access to the Program and any bonuses.
METHODS OF PAYMENT
By using a debit or credit card, you grant us permission to automatically charge your card for all fees and charges due to the Company, without any additional authorization, for which you will receive an electronic receipt. You also agree that the Company is authorized to share any payment information and instructions required to complete payment transactions with its third-party payment service providers (e.g., credit card transaction processing, merchant settlement, and related services).
If you choose the payment plan, you authorize the Company to charge your credit or debit card automatically according to the terms outlined in the Fees section above.
Concerning recurring payments and outstanding invoices: you are legally required to complete all installments of your payment plan, and you authorize us (without notice to you, unless required by applicable law) to collect any outstanding payments using any eligible payment method we have on record for your account. If all payment methods we have on file for you are declined for your monthly fee, you must promptly provide a new payment method or your Program access will be terminated.
Your satisfaction is important to us, and we are committed to delivering a high-quality Program. However, due to the significant time, effort, and resources invested in creating, preparing, and providing the Program, we have implemented a No Refund Policy.
By purchasing and participating in the Program, you acknowledge and agree to the following:
No Refunds: All sales are final, and no refunds will be provided for any portion of your payment for the Program under any circumstances. This policy applies to both one-time payments and payment plans.
Commitment to the Program: By enrolling in the Program, you are making a commitment to complete the course and apply the knowledge and strategies taught. It is your responsibility to participate actively, engage with the content, and utilize the resources provided to maximize the benefits of the Program.
Payment Obligations: If you have chosen a payment plan, you are legally obligated to complete all installment payments, regardless of your level of participation or satisfaction with the Program. Failure to fulfill your payment obligations may result in the suspension of your access to the Program and any associated bonuses.
Chargebacks: We do not accept or tolerate any chargeback threats or actual chargebacks from your credit card company or payment processor. Initiating a chargeback without prior communication with the Company may result in reporting the incident to credit reporting agencies or other entities, potentially negatively impacting your credit score.
Support and Assistance: If you have any questions, concerns, or issues related to the Program, please contact our support team at [email protected]. We are here to help you and ensure that you have a positive experience with the Program.
By purchasing and participating in the Program, you acknowledge that you have read, understood, and agreed to this No Refund Policy.
