Clare Josa makes no representations, warranties, or assurances as to the accuracy, currency or completeness of the content contain on this website or any sites linked to or from this site.
By using the information on this website and in Clare Josa’s free and paid programmes, you confirm that you are in a fit state to take part and that you take full responsibility for the effort you put in and the results you get.
Guarantees and Refunds
Unless stated otherwise on the sign-up page, any programme purchased from this site comes with a 30-day guarantee (starting on the first day of the programme, if it is live, or from the day you sign up for a self-study course). Clare Josa guarantees that your training will help you towards that programme’s goals, IF you take the actions the training teaches.
It can’t get you results unless you actually do the course.
By signing up for a programme, either online or live, you are contracting Clare Josa to provide you with the training materials. In return, you are committing to using them.
As such, this is not a ‘brown banana’ guarantee – if you changed your mind or decided you were now too busy to eat a banana and it went brown, you wouldn’t take it back to the supermarket for a refund. The same goes for training.
If you have an instalment payment plan for a programme, by signing up and making the initial payment you are contracted to complete all of the payments agreed. If a payment fails, you will be notified by the payment processor and must arrange for immediate payment, to bring your account out of arrears. If you have any questions or need our help, you must contact Clare’s team (you will have her email address) as a matter of urgency.
Should payments fall into arrears, access to high-value bonuses, such as 1:1 time with Clare, will immediately be suspended until your account is brought back into good standing.
Should payments default for longer than 14 days, without you contacting Clare’s team to agree next steps, your access to the relevant training programme may be suspended, without notice, until payment has been made.
If two payments are late, we reserve the right to withdraw your payment plan option and the balance must be paid within seven calendar days.
All of Clare’s group programmes come with a behavioural contract, which clients sign at the start of the programme. These are common sense things like being kind and supportive of everyone, keeping an open mind and positive attitude, and a non-disclosure agreement, to protect confidentiality. The rules are there to ensure that everyone gets the chance to have the best experience possible from the programme and doesn’t get dragged down by someone else’s negativity.
Should a client breach those agreed rules, they will receive one written warning. A second breach will cause them to be removed from all group elements of the programme, without notice, reverting to a self-study programme. No refund would be offered in such circumstances and any outstanding payment plan payments must still be made, in full.
Where a course includes lifetime access to the training materials, that will be clearly stated.
In such cases, ‘lifetime’ means for as long as those materials exist. If a course is withdrawn for any reason, you will be given fair notice, using the email address with which you signed up (unless you unsubscribed, in which case we’re not allowed to contact you, under GDPR).
Please note that lifetime access would only cover the self-study portions of a programme. If you wish to join in with the live elements again at a future date – e.g. the forum, Facebook group or group calls – there is often the option to do so for a reduced fee.
Working With Clare
If you are working with Clare on an individual or corporate basis, in addition to the above terms, the following terms apply:
Booking Clare To Speak Or Deliver On-Site Or Virtual Training
The agreed speaker fee must be paid, in full, at least 28 days before the event or by the due date on the invoice, whichever is sooner, to confirm Clare’s attendance. Agreed travel expenses must be paid within 14 days of invoicing, after the event.
Unless agreed otherwise, booking Clare to speak does not include videoing and transmitting the event outside of the attendees in the room, e.g. to use as internal staff training. If you wish to do this – Clare is happy to be videoed – please discuss it with Clare before she invoices you as a licensing fee may apply.
If an event is cancelled, rather than postponed, the following terms apply:
- Any non-refundable travel costs and similar expenses already incurred will be due.
- To compensate for the costs of meetings and work on the event, as well as other events potentially declined through this booking, the following cancellation fees apply:
- If cancelled 8 weeks or more in advance, 50% of the agreed fee will be due.
- If cancelled between 4 and 8 weeks in advance, 75% will be due.
- If cancelled under 4 weeks in advance, the full fee may be due.
In the event that the date changes, if Clare can make the new date, then she would waive the cancellation fee, but any direct expenses would still be liable, such as non-refundable travel costs.
The rescheduled event must take place within six months of the original event, otherwise cancellation fees will apply, as above.
Note: if the British government recommends cancelling all events due to Coronavirus, and the event cannot be rescheduled, then these fees would be waived, except for non-refundable travel costs.
In such circumstances, Clare is experienced at delivering highly engaging virtual keynotes to remote audiences, which is another option.
Bespoke Corporate Work
Clare’s normal terms are 50% on commissioning and the balance to be paid on the agreed end date in the contract.
Note: work on a project cannot commence until the initial invoice has been paid. This includes any in-house briefing meetings or course preparation.
If the contract timing slips due to the company’s actions, Clare Josa reserves the right to still be paid the balance on the originally agreed date. If it changes due to Clare’s availability, then a new date for paying the balance may be agreed.
Invoicing payment terms are normally 14 days from receipt and late charges may be applied, in line with current UK law.
If a business sends an employee on one of Clare Josa’s public workshops, that course fee can be paid by invoice, but the place is not confirmed until the invoice has been paid. The place will be held for a maximum of 14 days. The delegate will not be able to attend the course if the invoice has not been paid.
Note: individual online training costing under £500 cannot be paid for by invoicing, due to the administration costs involved in obtaining approved supplier status.
This is normally a 3-month package, which must be paid in advance, before the first session.
We reserve the right to amend these terms and conditions at any time with or without notice.
