Terms and Conditions of use for The Heartful Parent Academy
Last Updated: October 15, 2021
Welcome to The Heartful Parent Academy, an online program for parents who want to build more love, joy, and connection in their families. This program is available through the Academy membership site (“Site”) and contains proprietary content developed and curated by us (collectively “Heartful Parent Collective Content”). The Site is owned and operated by Christy Keating Consulting, LLC dba The Heartful Parent Collective and The Heartful Parent Academy (“The Collective,” “The Academy,” “THPC,” “THPA,” “we” “us” or “our”).
Agreement to Terms
By accessing, or using our Services, you agree to be bound by these Terms. We may update these Terms and our Services at any time, in our sole discretion. If we do so, we will post a notice on the site. It’s important that you review the Terms whenever we modify them because continuing to use the Services indicates to us that you agree to be bound by the modified Terms.
The Heartful Parent Academy allows you to access certain premium features or content in exchange for a recurring fee, as applicable (the “Member Services”). Your transactions and any other use of the Member Services are subject to these Terms of Service (“Membership Terms of Service”). By using a Member Service, you agree to (1) these Membership Terms of Service; and (2) The Heartful Parent Academy’s Terms of Service, and all other terms and conditions that generally apply to The Heartful Parent Collective website (all of these together are the “Terms”). Please read the Terms carefully. If you don’t understand them, or don’t accept any part of them, then you’re not allowed to use the Member Services. By enrolling in this membership, you are affirming that you have read, understood, and agreed to these Terms.
Once confirmed, we will provide you access to the purchased Service. You agree and understand that access to the Service may at times be influenced and affected by third parties that we use to provide the Service (web hosting, membership site plugins, etc.). You agree and understand that no breach of contract action may be initiated against The Academy when there are reasonable delays in the access of the Service.
The Heartful Parent Collective reserves the right to terminate the Service, and or access to certain features of the Service, with or without prior notice to you. We will make reasonable efforts to provide notice but is not required to do so under the terms of this agreement.
Fees. Subscription fees for the Member Services are recurring payments (except where identified as otherwise). The term may be monthly, quarterly, or annual as described in the course of the transaction. Your subscription begins upon payment of a first installment of subscription fees. The subscription renews monthly, quarterly, or annually as applicable upon the payment of automatically recurring subscription fees. Monthly, quarterly, or annual fees are charged on the same day of the month that the subscription began. (For example, if a monthly subscription began on the 29th, 30th, or 31st day of a month, then membership will renew on the last day of any month that doesn’t have that many days.)
Payment. The Heartful Parent Academy accepts payment via the current payment method indicated at time of purchase, which may include credit card, and any other form of payment that we make available to you from time to time. You agree to abide by any relevant Terms of Service or other legal agreement whether with The Heartful Parent Academy, Stripe, PayPal or another third party, that governs your use of a given payment processing method. Prices for Member Services may change at any time, and THPA does not provide price protection or refunds in the event of a price reduction or promotional offering. You agree to pay for any Member Services that you order (except during a free trial period). THPA will charge your credit card or other form of payment for the price listed on the relevant Member Services offer, along with any additional amounts relating to applicable taxes, bank fees and currency fluctuations. If you purchase any automatically renewing subscriptions, you agree that THPA will charge the payment method on file on the first day of each billing period for the relevant subscription, and if the payment method on file becomes invalid due to an expired credit card or other similar reason and we are unable to charge you within 10 days, THPA reserves the right to immediately revoke your access to any Member Services you have ordered until you update your payment method. If you fail to update your payment method within 10 days, THPA may cancel your subscription.
Cancellations and Refunds. You can cancel your Member Services at any time. All cancellations must be requested at least 48 hours prior to the payment date. If you purchase a subscription to Member Services that automatically renews, you may cancel the subscription any time before the end of the current billing period and the cancellation will take effect on the next billing period, except as otherwise communicated to you by THPA. You will retain access to the Member Services from the time you cancel until the start of the next billing period and will not receive a refund or credit for any remaining days in your current billing period. Subscription fees paid are final and nonrefundable, unless otherwise determined by the THPA. If THPA reasonably determines that a user has violated these Membership Terms of Services, THPA may immediately terminate the subscription and the user’s access to Member Services without notice and without refund. To cancel your Heartful Parent Academy membership, please send an email to christy[at]theheartfulparent.com.
Lifetime Membership. No refunds are available for purchases of Lifetime Memberships. Your lifetime membership may not be transferred to any third party. If you have purchased a lifetime membership to the Website, you will be granted access to the course content, however we reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to cancel your access to the Community (Facebook and Member Calls) if you do not abide by our membership guidelines. Lifetime Membership is for the lifetime of the Service. If for any reason, Christy Keating Consulting, LLC and/or The Heartful Parent Academy should dissolve or cease to exist, then your access to the Service terminates.
