Terms and Conditions
If you place an order with Strengths Now Inc, then a legally binding contract will be formed between you and Strengths Now. The terms of that contract are as set out here. This is a legal document intended to have legal significance. If you do not understand all parts of this agreement, please seek advice from a qualified legal practitioner.
1. DESCRIPTION OF SERVICES
Strengths Now (“we,” or “us”) provides several services (“the Services”) to you, our users (“Users”), including:
- Embrace What’s Next. We offer a six-week, live, virtual cohort series for women and an on-demand, the self-paced version that includes videos and worksheets for reflection. Both programs include an access code to take the Clifton Strength assessment and one confidential coaching session (50 minutes in length) with a Gallup Certified Strengths Coach.
- Career Builder Package. This add-on package is intended for users who want to receive professional feedback on their resume, cover letter, and LinkedIn profiles.
- Coaching Package. A coaching package can be added to any program and consists of three virtual 55-minute private coaching sessions with a Gallup Certified Strengths Coach. By accessing or using any of the Services, you accept and agree to these Terms. You agree that Strengths Now Inc. owns and retains all rights to the Services. You further agree that the content you access and/or view as part of the Services is owned or controlled by Strengths Now Inc.
2. PAYMENT AND CANCELLATION
Our terms are payment of the “Fees” as set out on the registration web pages. Payment may be made by credit card (MasterCard, Visa, and AMEX), PayPal, or at our discretion, a personal check or money order. Payment must be received in full to begin accessing Services.
We reserve the right to suspend or cancel your registration for a course if we have not received full payment.
Users acknowledge that:
- Payment in full is required before commencing work for any Services or official registration into the Embrace What’s Next cohort program
- Users will have access to Embrace What’s Next on-demand Program content for one year following the date of purchase
- Users who have paid for a Service may elect to defer the start date no later than 6 months from the date of payment
- Logins will be suspended 7 days after payment defaults
- Except in cases of emergency, if you do not show for a scheduled coaching session or cancel within less than 48 hours, you may be required to pay a cancellation fee of $75.
Payments are non-refundable, and there are no refunds or credits for partially used services once purchased. When a client pays for a coaching session, or sessions, in advance, they must have the coaching session(s) that they have paid for within 6 months of the payment, or any untaken sessions are forfeited. At any time, and for any reason, we may provide a refund, discount, or other consideration to some or all of our members (“credits”). The amount and form of such credits, and the decision to provide them, are at our sole and absolute discretion. The provision of credits in one instance does not entitle you to credits in the future for similar instances, nor does it obligate us to provide credits in the future under any circumstance.
3. RESPONSIBILTIES & COMMITMENTS
To keep the Services safe and available for everyone to use, we ask that you abide by our agreement. You and other users must use the Services for lawful, non-commercial, and appropriate purposes only. Your commitment to this principle is critical.
You agree that you will not use the Services and Content in a way that:
- Violates the rights of others, including patent, trademark, trade secret, copyright, privacy, publicity, or other proprietary rights
- Uses technology or other means to access, index, frame, or link to the Services (including the Content) that is not authorized by Strengths Now (including by removing, disabling, bypassing, or circumventing any content protection or access control mechanisms intended to prevent the unauthorized stream capture, reproduction, access to, or distribution of the Services)
- Introduces viruses or any other computer code, files, or programs that interrupt, destroy or limit the functionality of any computer software or hardware or telecommunications equipment
- Violates these Terms or any guidelines or policies posted by Strengths Now
- Interferes with any other party’s use of the Services.
We expect you to be on time with an adequate internet connection for coaching or group cohort meetings. We ask that you make every effort to keep a scheduled coaching session or give a minimum of 48 hours’ notice for any changes so that another client may use the session. In exceptional circumstances, a Strengths Now coach may need to rearrange a coaching session; in these circumstances Strengths Now will provide a mutually satisfactory alternative appointment for the client.
The estimated turnaround time Career Builder Package services are approximately 7 to 10 business days. However, this may be less or more depending on the amount and nature of work involved on a case-by-case basis. Clients are requested to respond to Strengths Now requests for information as quickly as possible when career materials are being evaluated in order to keep completion time as fast as possible. Career Builder services will remain open for a period of 2 months from the date of payment. After this time, no further work is obliged to be undertaken on the resume, cover letter, or LinkedIn profile by Strengths Now.
You agree that Strengths Now may terminate your use of the Services, for any reasonable reason, including, without limitation, non-payment of the Fees or behavior or conduct inconsistent with the guidelines set. Strengths Now will not tolerate the distribution of (by whatever means) content that is libelous, defamatory, obscene, pornographic, threatening, invasive of privacy or publicity rights, abusive, illegal, or that we otherwise deem distasteful or objectionable (at our sole discretion).
You are not permitted to use our cohort meetings, chat areas, private Facebook group, or E-mail service in any commercial manner. Any commercial solicitation by you of our other uses is prohibited. Users are solely responsible for the content of their own messages. At the discretion of Strengths Now, violation of this clause may result in suspension or cancellation of your course without refund.
If Strengths Now determines in its sole discretion that you are violating any of these Terms, we may (i) notify you and (ii) use the technical measure to block or restrict your access or use of the Services. In either case, you agree to immediately stop accessing or using in any way (or attempting to access or use) the Services, and you agree not to circumvent, avoid, or bypass such restriction, or otherwise restore or attempt to restore such access or use.
