TERMS & CONDITIONS

These terms of use (these “Terms”) represent an agreement between you and Heart of Releasing,  (“HR”, “we”, “our”, or “us”  and govern your use of our websites at centerforreleasing.org (the “Site”) and any products or services made available from time to time by means of the Site (the “Products”). We refer to the Sites and the Products collectively in these Terms as the “Services.” By using any of the Services, you acknowledge that you have read, understood, and agree to be bound by and comply with these Terms.

  1. SERVICES.

Heart of Releasing grants you a non-exclusive, non-transferrable, revocable license to use the Services, including the Products (subject to payment, where applicable) for your personal use only, in accordance with these Terms.  We reserve all rights that we do not expressly grant in these Terms. We may change, suspend or discontinue any aspect of the Services at any time, including the availability of any feature or content. Without limitation of any of our other rights or remedies at law, in equity or under these Terms, we may terminate your license to use the Services, in whole or in part, including your right to use any Products, without providing any refund or cancelling your obligation to make installment payments where applicable, if we determine, in our sole discretion, that you have breached or violated any of the provisions of these Terms.

  1. PAYMENT.

You may purchase licenses to certain Products through a one-time payment or in monthly installments, as specified on the Site.  When you make a purchase, you authorize HR to charge the credit or debit card you provide on a one-time or monthly basis, depending on which payment plan you elect.

  1. REFUNDS.

If you are not satisfied with a Product that you purchased, you are eligible for a full credit of amounts paid for that Product, provided that you email us at info@heartofreleasing.org, no later than thirty (30) days following the date of purchase, requesting a credit, stating the reason for your request. Notwithstanding the foregoing, certain Product purchases may not be eligible for credit, or might be subject to satisfaction of additional or different criteria, if and to the extent we so provide on the Site.  If you receive a credit for a Product, you will have no further right to use that Product and must mail it back to us or send it electronically if that is how you received it. We will have the sole discretion to determine whether you satisfy the eligibility criteria for a credit. For the avoidance of doubt, unless you are eligible to receive a credit as provided herein, your obligation to continue to make all monthly payments with respect to a purchase shall remain in effect, notwithstanding the cancellation or termination of the applicable license for such Product.  If the credit request is pertaining to a course, you must tell the instructor in person prior to end of the course and the Heart of Releasing in writing (email HR at info@heartofreleasing.org) within the time period of the course, that you are requesting a credit and the reason for the request. Credits expire twelve months after they are issued and have no remaining cash value.
