I am aware of such risks associated with the programme, including my own physical condition and the actions or conduct of others that I may come into contact with after participating in the programme. I understand that by participating in the programme, I may experience emotional personal memories.

ASSUMING ALL SUCH RISKS, I HEREBY RELEASE, WAIVE ANY AND ALL CLAIMS AGAINST, WILL NOT SUE AND WILL HOLD WITHOUT LIABILITY, the provider from all actions, omissions, causes of action, suits, debts, damages, losses, judgments, injuries, liabilities, and claims and demands whatsoever, in law or in equity (collectively, “Claims”), including without limitation personal injury and death, emotional distress, indirect damages, consequential damages or exemplary damages, even though such claims may be caused by or result from the negligence or carelessness of such released parties.

Once payment has been made, there are no refunds and there is acceptance from the client/customer that this course is with a no refund policy. Our ‘On Demand’ courses are instant access so the whole course content is available, therefore it would not be appropriate to offer refunds in these circumstances.

If an individual is on a payment plan, they accept that payments must be made on time and that cancellation of the payment plan is not permitted. Discretionary requests can be made for payment options to Bonita Ackerman du Preez for approval with a legitimate reason as to why. Should payment not be made in a timely fashion, this will be pursued externally by law and may result in legal action.

By purchasing the programme, as the “Client”, I accept the foregoing disclosure, disclaimer, assumption of risk and waiver, and I represent and warrant for the provider’s reliance, and agree, as material consideration without which provider would not provide the services, that:

(5) I have purchased the course of my own free will and understand my obligation to pay whether in full or by payment plan 

I have read and agree to the provisions stated above for myself, the Client. I agree to indemnify, protect, defend and hold without liability the provider, its owners, members, managers, officers, employees, agents and representatives, of all liabilities, claims, losses, damage or injury to person or property which may occur or be incident to Client’s involvement or participation in the services offered by provider.

This course is non-refundable and once purchased, understand that there is a no refund policy. If a payment plan is undertaken, the client will undertake to satisfy all payments and may be subject to legal action should the payments not be met.

The provider reserves the right to end the programme for the client at any stage if in breach of rules of the programme, including messaging other members without permission.

All property within the programme is subject to Intellectual Property law and cannot be shared with others both on and offline and a breach of this will constitute legal action.
