Terms and Conditions
You must agree to these before you are permitted to use any Come As You Are LLC (CAYA) digital or downloadable resources, online course, certification Course, one-on-one or group coaching, class, Course, workshop, or training, or enter any online private forums operated by CAYA Yoga (for any purpose), whether on a website hosted by Come As You Are LLC (CAYA ), http://community.cayayoga.com, an online course platform, or facebook.com (collectively “the Course”).
If you do not agree with these Policies, you may not use the Course.
This Course is intended and only suitable for individuals aged 18 and above. Some of the content in this Course may not be appropriate for children. The Company hereby disclaims all liability for use by individuals under the age of 18.
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 Company, without any additional authorization, for which you will receive an electronic receipt. You also agree that 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).
In the event that payment is not received by the date due, your status will be changed to “delinquent.” This means that we reserve the right to suspend your access to the Course, all Content (defined below), and our private Facebook group immediately. Once you have paid your delinquent payment, your student status will be changed to “in good standing” and all access will be reinstated back to normal; however, it may take up to four (4) business days to restore all access. Our system will automatically attempt to obtain your payment three (3) times before placing your account into collections. Once your delinquent payment is in collections, any manual re-bills will incur a $20 administrative charge. CAYA reserves the right to permanently terminate your access to the Course for repeated delinquent payments.
We do not offer any special or extended payment plans beyond the terms that are offered at the time of registration. If you fail to make payment in a timely manner in accordance with these Registration Policies or voluntarily decide to withdraw from the Course at any time or for any reason, you shall remain fully responsible for the full cost of all payments plus 18% interest (or the highest amount allowed by law). Additionally, you agree to reimburse Company for all collection and/or legal fees and expenses necessitated by lateness or default in payment.
Please think carefully about whether this is the right time in your life to take part in this wonderful Course. Because of how Content is distributed, student management, grading, and organization that is the nature of this Course, CAYA offers refunds subject to the following specific restrictions.
Course, workshop and Community Fees are non-refundable.
We will not provide refunds for participants who have been removed from the Course for violations of these Registration Policies or violating CAYA’s private Facebook group rules or who choose not to complete the Course requirements.
We will not provide refunds due to technical issues. Quality or consistency of equipment (including all internet connections, cell phones, and VOIP connection lines) cannot be guaranteed. You will need to have at least a basic level of computer and Internet skills and Internet access that is faster than dial-up speed. The Content might not be accessible on a smartphone. Should you have technical difficulties with accessing the Course, our support team will happily assist you. Because the Course includes group classes, if an instructor finds that your connection, whether tested in advance or not, is creating sound quality and recording concerns (such as dropped connections, static interference, or recording interruptions) that cannot after reasonable attempts be corrected, you may be excluded from live participation in the class, with no refund.
Since we have a clear and explicit Refund Policy in these Regulation Policies that you have agreed to prior to completing the purchase of the Course, 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.
