Revised: November 6, 2017
TERMS OF PARTICIPATION:
Please READ Carefully. By enrolling in this Program you (herein referred to as “Fellow”) agree to the following terms stated herein.
Birthing of Giants, LLC (herein referred to as “BOG” or “Company”) agrees to provide the Program, “Birthing of Giants” (herein referred to as “Program”). Fellow agrees to abide by all policies and procedures as outlined in this agreement as a condition of their participation in the Program.
If, for any reason, you wish to defer starting the Program, you may defer within 11 months of your original enrollment date. If the enrollment fee has increased, you will be required to pay the difference between the fee when you first enrolled and the current fee at the time you will participate in the Program. After one year of deferment from the original start date of the Program, you may request a 50% refund of the total amount paid and cancel your participation in the Program. Contact our support team at [email protected] to request a refund.
Based on acceptance in the Program, your business partners may enroll and attend the Program for the discounted price of $10,000. A Partner is considered to be anyone with at least a 10% ownership interest in Fellow’s business. Partners must attend within one year of the original Fellow’s session.
If you apply for acceptance to the Program, pay the $1,000 application fee, and choose not to enroll in the Program after being accepted, the deposit will be forfeited one year from acceptance. In other words, once the deposit is paid and you are accepted to the Program, you have one year to complete your enrollment or you will forfeit your deposit. However, if you choose not to enroll, you can request, and will receive, a full refund.
We at Birthing of Giants, LLC (“BOG”) and Birthing of Giants Fellowship Program (birthingofgiants.com) want you to be satisfied with your purchase. In the event that you decide your purchase was not the right decision, you may cancel your enrollment 60 days or more prior to the original start date of the Program and you will be entitled to a 50% refund of the total amount you were scheduled to have paid. Cancellation more than 30 days prior, but less than 60 days, to the original start date of the Program entitles you to a 10% refund of the total amount you were scheduled to have paid. Cancellation less than 30 days prior to the original start date of the Program results in a forfeiture of the entire tuition.
Simply contact our support team at [email protected] and let us know you’d like a refund prior to the 30th day before the Program’s original start date after your enrollment. We cannot provide refunds less than 30 days prior to the original Program start date. Within 30 days prior to the original start date, all payments are non-refundable and you are responsible for full payment of the fees for the Program regardless if you complete the program. Please note: If you opted for a payment plan and you do not request a refund prior to 30 days before the original Program start date, you are required by law to complete the remaining payments of your Payment Plan. All refunds are discretionary as determined by BOG. To further clarify, we will no longer provide refunds less than 30 days prior to the original Program start date and all payments must be made on a timely basis. If you have any questions or problems, please let us know by contacting our support team directly. The email is [email protected]
