TERMS AND CONDITIONS
TERMS OF PARTICIPATION
Please READ carefully. By purchasing this product, the following Terms and Conditions (the “Agreement”) are entered into by Capacity Building & Policy Experts, LLC. (“Company”, “we”, or “us”) and you (“Client” or “You”), and you agree to the following terms stated herein. The Company and you may be referred to collectively as “Parties” in this Agreement.
The Company agrees to provide the “Ethical Capacity Building: Aligning Values, Fundraising, and Strategic Planning™” course (the “Program”) as outlined on the web page where you register, which may include digital or downloadable resources, an online course, one-on-one or group coaching, workshops, training online private forums operated by the Company (for any purpose), whether on a website hosted by Company or a third-party website such as an online course platform or facebook.com. As a condition of participating in the Program, you agree to be bound by and to abide by all policies and procedures set out in this Agreement, including those incorporated by reference.
In the Program, you will receive training modules provided by the Company to guide you in running an ethical and impactful organization. The Company will not provide any type of planning document specific to your organization or cause but will guide you through the steps of different plans and developing strategies yourself. To achieve the Program’s expected results, you must attend all coaching sessions and complete all required work.
From time to time, the Company may offer bonuses to individuals who sign up for the Program. You shall be entitled to any bonuses offered to you at the time of your enrollment. Bonuses are not guaranteed to be available for the entire lifespan of the Program and they vary depending on specific live and automated promotions throughout the year.
The Company reserves the right to offer additional Program elements from time to time, for any subgroup of participants. These additional Program elements are a bonus, not a part of the services included in the base version of the Program. The selection of the participants who may participate in any additional Program elements is at the sole discretion of the Company.
This Program is intended and only suitable for individuals aged 18 and above. Some of the content in this Program may not be appropriate for children. Company hereby disclaims all liability for use by individuals under the age of 18.
This Program is intended to be utilized online by nonprofit professionals, volunteers, board members, funders, and entrepreneurs who will implement the skills and strategies taught throughout the Program in their organizations.
In consideration of your access to the Program, you agree to pay the following fees.
You may choose between a single payment of $899 (due immediately) or 3 monthly payments of $330 each. If you select the payment plan, you must pay the initial payment today and then your selected payment method will be automatically charged the following 2 payments on a monthly basis, for a total payment of $899. Due to the limited number of Participants accepted into the Program, if you opt for monthly payments and do not complete the Program, you will remain responsible for those payments. In the event that any payment is not made, the Company shall immediately suspend your access to the Program and any bonuses.
METHODS OF PAYMENT
If paying by debit card or credit card, you give us permission to automatically charge your credit or debit card for all fees and charges due and payable to the Company, without any additional authorization, for which you will receive an electronic receipt. You also agree that the Company is authorized to share any payment information and instructions required to complete the payment transactions with its third-party payment service providers (e.g., credit card transaction processing, merchant settlement, and related services).
If you elect for the payment plan, you hereby authorize the Company to charge your credit card or debit card automatically according to the terms set forth in the Fees section above.
Regarding recurring payments and outstanding invoices: you are required by law to complete all installments of your payment plan and you authorize us (without notice to you, unless required by applicable law) to collect any and all outstanding payments, using any eligible payment method we have on record for your account. If all payment methods we have on file for you are declined for payment of your monthly fee, you must provide a new payment method promptly or your Program access will be terminated.
Your satisfaction is important to the Company. However, because of the extensive time, effort, preparation, and care that goes into creating and providing the Program, and the limited number of participants accepted into the Program, the Company has a no refund policy. Unless otherwise provided by law, you acknowledge that we do not offer refunds for any portion of your payment for the Program and no refunds will be provided to you. By using and/or purchasing our Program, you understand and agree that all sales are final and no refunds will be provided.
Since we have a clear and explicit Refund Policy in this Agreement that you have agreed to prior to completing your purchase of the Program, we do not tolerate or accept any type of chargeback threat or actual chargeback from your credit card company or payment processor. If a chargeback is placed on a purchase or we receive a chargeback threat during or after your purchase, we reserve the right to report the incident to all three credit reporting agencies or to any other entity for inclusion in any chargeback database or for listing as a delinquent account, which could have a negative impact on your credit report score. The information reported will include your name, email address, order date, order amount, and billing address. Chargeback abusers wishing to be removed from the database shall make the payment for the amount of the chargeback.
The Company reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to determine how to discipline a participant who violates the Program terms. Therefore, if a participant disagrees with how the Company disciplines another member and requests a refund, the Company will deny such a request.
Furthermore, if a participant violates their agreement, the Company reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to offer the participant another opportunity to abide by it. If a participant disagrees with the Company offering another participant a second opportunity to comply with their agreement, no grounds for a participant to receive a refund would be created, and any request for a refund on this basis shall be denied.
If in the Company’s sole right and discretion, you persist with behaviors or actions that violate this Agreement, the Company may terminate your access and participation in the Program without notice and without refund.

RESOLUTION OF DISPUTES
Every effort has been made to accurately represent the Program and the educational value it provides. However, you should not rely on any fundraising, management recommendation, revenue, sales, or earnings information we present as any kind of promise, guarantee, or expectation of any level of success or fundraising, or sustainability for the organization. Your results will be determined by a number of factors over which we have no control, such as your financial condition, experiences, skills, level of effort, education, changes within the market, regulatory requirements, evolving court and legal mandates, and other circumstances, which typically impact nonprofits. Running a nonprofit carries risks, and your use of any information contained in the Program is at your own risk. The Company provides the Program and Content without any express or implied warranties. There is no guarantee that you will fundraise more money or eliminate risk using the techniques and ideas in the Program or Content. When we present outcomes, figures, fundraising goals, or management outcomes on our website and our other channels, we are showcasing exceptional results, which do not reflect the average experience.
By continuing to use the Program and access the Content, you agree that we are not responsible for any decision you may make regarding any information presented or as a result of purchasing any Company products or services. Any claims made of fundraising or examples of actual results can be verified upon request.
If you do not understand or agree with any of these conditions, please do not purchase the Program. If you require further clarification, please contact [email protected]
