Terms and Conditions
Here is the plain English version of the juicy bits of what you will read below:
- When you visit this site, by any URL associated with it, you are saying “Yes! TOTALLY!” to the terms and conditions.
- When you pay for stuff here, or through the linked Acuity scheduler, you’re paying through PayPal or Stripe. I never see your financials.
- Your address is never sold. We use an SSL. We use your addy because I like to send goodies to people, on occasion. SNAIL MAIL ROCKS!
- Don’t be an asshat: My stuff is mine. Your stuff you post is yours. If you use my stuff to do illegal or even unethical shenanigans, I reserve the right to send you away forever and tell my lawyer about you. You can’t charge people for stuff FaithCultureKiss Studio Voice & Acting™, LLC has created.
- I am not a lawyer. I’m not a CPA. I’m not a therapist. Business coaching isn’t a substitute for any of these things. Neither is life coaching. Or wine.
- I am also not a fortune teller. I can’t guarantee you’ll make gazillions of dollars off of what we talk about. But you knew that. Talk is the easy part, yeah?
- Payments/Refunds: For lessons and drop in business coaching sessions, you pay at the time of booking, and your payment reserves your time. If you bail, or have to cancel, you’ll need to book again for a new fee. HARSH? Maybe? Motivation for you to show the heck up? ABSOLUTELY.
- Payments/Refunds: For GROUP CLASSES and LIVE EVENTS There are no refunds. Please invest wisely and clear your calendar. If you can’t show up, I will miss you dearly. Just remember I used your fee to make the thing happen… so your moola is already doled out amongst the team.
- Emergencies will be handled on a case by case basis. (I’m not THAT much of a jerk!)
- In The SpeakEasy Cooperative? You can cancel your subscription at any time, but you won’t get refunded if your payment already went through for the month. Even if you miss it by a day. Although why would you? If you choose to cancel, you’ve communicated that you no longer wish to receive emails, be in the Slack or FB forums, or have access to the site, and will be removed upon cancellation.
- Also, regarding The SpeakEasy Cooperative: You can’t roll over Seshes. Your month begins the day you started your subscription, and if you’re on the Charter Member Private Table or VIP Room level, you’ll need to get in your monthly Sesh accordingly.
- Example: If you subscribed on the 14th of December, you need to get your sesh booked between the 14th of December and 14th of January. Then another Sesh between Jan 14 and Feb 14, etc. You can’t skip December/January and have a double long Sesh in Jan/Feb. If you skip, you skip.
- Why do I do this? 1. I want to. 2. Part of getting through your plan is dedicating yourself to the process. 3. If everyone did that, I would not have the resources to give you the best service and experience I have in me. 4. I like to see you.
- Also, also regarding The SpeakEasy Cooperative: By subscribing you agree to the “Rules of Engagement”, which is another way to say “Terms & Conditions.” If you steal someone’s idea, you are booted out and shamed forever and ever. If two people have the same idea at the same time, talk it through, and be grown-ups. There is enough for everyone! YAY!
- One more SECO thing: You can’t take stuff created in The SpeakEasy Cooperative and post it outside of the group. No video, screenshots, recordings of any kind can leave the group, without prior complete and expressed permission from all parties involved, and faithculturekiss, LLC.
- LIVE EVENTS (like voice lessons, workshops, conferences, etc.): You come at your own risk. If you fall, or get lost, or eat your way through the local ice cream shop, that is on you. You agree to release all liability from FaithCultureKiss Studio Voice & Acting™, LLC and the peeps involved with it, and the location which it’s held. You agree not to sue us. You agree to take care of your own self.
- You should read through the boring but juicy bits below. It’s THEE way to make all the unicorns happy.
