In case of a permanent stop, all members will be notified by e-mail. Existing material will still be accessible. 

If the court establishes that a provision in the Terms and Conditions is void or voidable in full or in part, this will not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of the Terms and Conditions. The void or voided provision will be replaced by a provision of a similar purport that is neither void nor voidable.

The Essence of Liberty Online Academy Refund Policy:

If purchased before the 1st of June 2024 (subscription):

Payments made for a subscription membership are non-refundable once completed. To cancel your membership, you must notify us by email at least 7 days before your next payment date to allow for processing time, or you can cancel your membership immediately via "My Account" before the next period begins. Access to materials will be provided for the paid period. We reserve the right to withdraw the due payment from your account if you fail to adhere to these Terms.

If purchased after the 1st of June 2024 (lifetime access):

You may receive a refund, if it is requested within 14 days of purchase, by contacting [email protected]. You MUST NOT have viewed or accessed any materials beyond Module 1 and Module 2 in order to be eligible for a refund. If any additional materials beyond Module 1 and 2 have been accessed, or you have exceeded 14 days within the program, a refund will not be granted. Please note that all of the videos streamed inside the program portal by each member are tracked and visible to us.

Refund requests and/or payment cancellations (in case of paying in installments), made outside of the 14 day refund window are not eligible ‚Äď no matter what circumstances.

We may provide a refund or apply any payments to future Services in limited cases where it deems, in its sole discretion, to be appropriate and in an amount to be determined by Coach on a case by case basis. 

Online Coaching Call Refund Policy: 

Once a booking and payment have been made, online coaching calls may only be rescheduled; cancellations and refunds are not permitted. Requests to reschedule an online coaching call must be made at least 24 hours prior to the scheduled time. If a rescheduling request is made less than 24 hours before the scheduled call, we reserve the right to retain the payment rather than credit it to the rescheduled time. If Equus Empeiria needs to cancel your online coaching call for any reason, you will be offered the choice to reschedule or a refund. 

In-person private coaching:

 
A 50% non-refundable deposit is required at least 10 days before your scheduled session. If you cannot attend your session, your deposit can only be refunded if another paying student is able to take your place in that time slot. In the event that the lesson needs to be cancelled due to weather conditions, you will be offered an opportunity to reschedule. If Equus Empeiria needs to cancel your session due to personal circumstances, you will be given the option to either reschedule or receive a full refund.

 

Clinic Refunds: 

Participant Refund Policy: Clinic participation fees are refundable only if another participant is able to attend in your place.

Organiser Refund Policy: We strive to avoid cancelling clinics and will always prioritize rescheduling over cancellation. However, in the event that the clinic needs to be cancelled by the organiser, refund of the clinic fee (excluding any additional costs) will be issued depending on the amount of time between cancellation and the scheduled date: 

  • Over 2 weeks before the scheduled date: 100% refund¬†
  • Over one week before the scheduled date: 75% refund
  • 3-7 days before the scheduled date: 50% refund¬†
  • Less than 3 days before the scheduled date: no refund¬†

Equus Empeiria is not responsible for refunding any costs in relation to venue hire, accommodation, flights etc. If the clinic organiser would like these costs refunded he/she needs to organise this individually with the associated companies. 

If Equus Empeiria needs to cancel the clinic due to reasons such as illness or injury and rescheduling is not possible, you will receive a full refund.
