TERMS OF PURCHASE AGREEMENT “The Circle”
This Terms of Purchase Agreement (the “Agreement”), is made by and between [Artist Strong, Inc. (hereafter known as “Company”), and you (hereafter known as “Purchaser”, and collectively, the “Parties”).
By purchasing a Product (as defined below) from Company, Purchaser agrees to the following terms:
Company provides The Circle: a 6 month artist mastermind group which includes: pre-recorded video instruction on a privately accessed website, Q&A calls provided via FB Live or comparable live video software, regular emails to direct lesson content, and a private Facebook Group for community and classroom support (herein referred to as the “Products”). Purchaser agrees to abide by all policies and procedures as outlined in this agreement as a condition of their purchase.
Note: This is a group coaching experience with Carrie. Please use the Facebook group or the comments section underneath course content to ask your questions and seek feedback. You also have opportunities to work with Carrie in the monthly group Q&A sessions. Contacting Carrie with questions about content and your art outside of these venues may not garner a response. There IS 1-1 coaching available in this program if you sign up for it.
If after 45 days you’ve given The Circle your all and aren’t satisfied you can receive a full refund. Once you demonstrate evidence of your labor of all content discussed and covered up to that date (Mar 5, 2018) (This includes showing me your notes and any and all worksheets. I also will use the statistics my class software provides to evaluate which content you’ve viewed and for how long.) I am happy to return your investment. I want you to grow and learn and discover. If you don’t feel The Circle is right for you let us part ways with peace and respect.
Students threaten their opportunity for refund when they access and use all of the content prior to course start date and then request refund.
Refunds are only available for first-year/brand new students (this applies to all payment options and program levels).
Company warrants and guarantees that the product is fit for its particular use. Should you receive a product that is defective, you have 30 days from the date of the order to notify Company of its defect in order to receive a replacement at no cost.
If you invest in 1-1 coaching with Carrie you are expected to schedule and make use of the 1-1 calls in months 1, 3 and 6 of the program. Failure to do so may mean you miss out on one, or all, of your calls. Company will not issue refunds nor reschedule appointments in the case of missed appointments. If you need to reschedule your appointment please give Carrie 24 hours notice.
