Simone & Company AND Branding & Marketing Academy Terms and Conditions of Use
Welcome to the Simone & Company website and to the Branding & Marketing Academy program (herein referred to as the “Product”). You agree to abide by all policies and procedures as outlined in this agreement as a condition of your purchase of the Product, as well as the sale of other related services and products. We provide services to you subject to the following notices, terms, and conditions (the “Terms”).
Please read these terms carefully. These terms, as modified or amended from time to time, are a binding contract between Simone Talarico Ross (“we” and/or “us”, “ Consultant” etc) and you (“Customer” or "you”).
You may only use the Branding & Marketing Academy if you first accept these terms.
In addition, when you use any current or future SIMONE ‘s service or visit or purchase from any business affiliated with SIMONE, whether or not included in the website, you also will be subject to the guidelines and conditions applicable to such service or business. If these terms are inconsistent with SIMONE ‘s terms, such terms will prevail.
If you create an account on the Website, you are responsible for maintaining the security of your account and data, and you are fully responsible for all activities that occur under the account. You must immediately notify SIMONE of any unauthorized uses of your data, your account or any other breaches of security. You may not use the account, username, or password of another user at any time or disclosing your password to any third party or permitting any third party to access your account.
You understand that SIMONE and its employees are not employees, agents, lawyers, doctors, managers, therapists, public relations or business managers, registered dieticians, or financial analysts, psychotherapists or accountants. Customer understands their purchase of Product will not treat or diagnose any disease, illness, or ailment, and if they should experience any such issues they should see their registered physician or other practitioner as determined by their own judgment.
Customer understands that Consultant has not promised, shall not be obligated to and will not;
(1) Procure or attempt to procure employment or business or sales for Customer;
(2) Perform any business management functions including but not limited to accounting, tax or investment consulting, or advice with regard thereto;
(3) Act as a therapist or provide psychoanalysis, psychological counseling or behavioral therapy;
(4) Act as a public relations manager;
(5) Act as a publicist to procure any publicity, interviews, write-ups, features, television and print or digital media exposure for Customer;
(6) Introduce Customer to SIMONE’s full network of contacts, media partners or business partners.
Customer understands that a relationship does not exist between the parties after the conclusion of the Product. If the Parties continue their relationship, a separate agreement will be entered into.
Customer accepts and agrees that Customer is 100% responsible for their progress and results from the Product.
Customer acknowledges that, as with any business endeavor, there is an inherent risk of loss of capital and there is no guarantee that Customer will reach their goals as a result of purchase of Product.
There are three options for payment of the Product fee:
(1) One Single payment (due upon registration)
(2) 3 monthly payments (*price varies depending on promotional period and enrollment level)
(3) 10 monthly payments (*price varies depending on promotional period and enrollment level)
If you select any monthly (10 or 3) payment option, you will pay your first payment upon joining. The remaining payments are monthly and start 30 days from your join date.
This is a payment plan, not a monthly fee. You will be liable for all of the payments regardless of whether you continue to use the Program during the payment period.
If payments are not made on time, you agree to pay interest on all past-due sums at a rate of 24% per year compounding monthly (2% per month).
METHODS OF PAYMENT
If Customer elects to pay by monthly installments, Customer authorizes the Company to charge Customer’s credit card or debit card. If Customer elects to pay in full upon registration (option 1 above), Customer may pay by credit card or debit card.
You are responsible to ensure that the payments are made on time. If your account is beyond 30-days overdue, SIMONE reserves the right to turn over the account to collections with outstanding interests and accrued costs incurred, in order to engage a Debt Recovery Mercantile Agency or a Solicitor to attend engaged by the company; in order to recover the outstanding amount due and payable.
Due to the nature of these items as digital downloads and virtual coaching, no refunds will be accepted.
