Terms and Conditions for our online programs
These terms and conditions are an agreement (“Agreement”) between you (“You” or “Your”) and Weisbart Consulting, Inc. (“Our” or “We” or “Us”) and governs Your participation in either or both of Our online agile programs (“Program”): Agile Virtual Summit (“AVS”) and Agile Mastery (“AM”). If you register for AM, You are an AM member (“AM Member”). If you register for an Agile Virtual Summit, You are an AVS participant (“AVS Participant”).
As an AM Member and/or AVS Participant, You agree as follows:
1. THE AM PROGRAM AND MEMBERSHIP COSTS
A. THE AM PROGRAM: AM Members enjoy exclusive agile and lean content (the “AM Content”) and a members-only community (the “AM Community”). As an AM Member, You will also have the opportunity, at Your own caution, to interactively participate and to share personal information with others through various online collaboration tools (“OCT”). Your participation in the AM Community and your use of OCT is not private. We do not promise or guarantee the confidentiality of any information that You choose to share with Us or to the AM Community. Members of the AM Community may include AVS Participants, even if they are not also AM Members, and we may open up the AM Community, or parts of the AM Community, to AVS Participants at Our sole discretion and without notice to You. We may limit, suspend, or terminate Your AM membership at any time, without refund and without notice, for any violation of this Agreement.
B. MONTHLY MEMBERSHIP: In order to have access to the AM Content and AM Community, You will be charged a monthly fee (the “Fee”), which will be billed on Your monthly anniversary date, which is the day of the month that You most recently became an AM Member (“Monthly Anniversary”). We may adjust or change the amount of the Fee, or change the frequency of the Fee, at any time. At Our discretion, We may offer discounted or introductory Fees.
C. CANCELLATION OF MONTHLY MEMBERSHIP: No ongoing commitment is currently required for monthly AM Members, and You may cancel at any time by emailing Us at [email protected] Your cancellation will be effective as of Your next Monthly Anniversary. We will not provide a refund If You fail to give Us timely notice of cancellation. If You wish to rejoin AM after cancelling, any discounted or introductory Fee may no longer be available to You. If You cancel Your AM membership, You will no longer have exclusive access to the AM Content or the AM Community.
D. PREPAID MEMBERSHIP: In lieu of a Fee, at Our discretion, We may offer You a prepaid plan (“Prepaid Plan”) for a flat rate (“Flat Rate”) for a set amount of time (the “Term”) for You to access the AM Content and AM Community. Your Flat Rate will be billed when you sign up for a Prepaid Plan, as well as on the anniversary date, based on the Term, from when You subscribed to the Prepaid Plan. We may adjust or change the amount of the Flat Rate, or change the length of the Term, for any renewals of Your Prepaid Plan. At Our discretion, We may offer a discounted or introductory Flat Rate.
E. CANCELLATION OF PREPAID MEMBERSHIP: You may cancel your Prepaid Plan by emailing Us at [email protected] Your cancellation will become effective at the end of Your current Term. We will not provide a refund If You fail to give Us notice of cancellation before Your Term expires. If You wish to rejoin AM after cancelling, any discounted or introductory Flat Rate may no longer be available to You. If You cancel Your AM membership, You will no longer have exclusive access to the AM Content or the AM Community.
2. THE AVS PROGRAM AND REGISTRATION LEVELS
A. LIVE VIRTUAL EVENTS: From time to time, We offer a summit of live agilist programming on date(s) chosen by Us (“Live Virtual Event”). Each Live Virtual Event is a separate summit (a “Summit”). During a Live Virtual Event (and, at Our discretion, during any re-broadcasts), AVS Registrants may have the opportunity, at Your own caution, to interactively participate and to share personal information. We do not promise or guarantee the confidentiality of any information that You choose to share with any presenters, groups, or other AVS Registrants.
B. REGISTRATION LEVELS: We offer two levels of access to each Summit: a free access pass (“Free Access Pass”) and an all access pass (“All Access Pass”).
1. FREE ACCESS PASS: If You register for a Free Access Pass to a Summit, You may stream live programming during the Summit’s Live Virtual Event without charge. If You choose a Free Access Pass, You will not have on-demand access to the Summit’s programming, and You will not have access to bonus content from speakers. At Our sole discretion, We may choose to re-broadcast the Live Virtual Event, at dates and times of Our choosing, at no cost.
2. ALL ACCESS PASS: All Access Passes are fee-based, and the cost depends on the Summit. If You register for an All Access Pass to a Summit, You will have on-demand access to that Summit’s programming and to bonus content from the speakers. You will also have the benefits of a Free Access Pass.
3. REFUNDS OF ALL ACCESS PASSES: You must provide Us notice within 30 days after the conclusion of a Summit’s Live Virtual Event if You are requesting a refund of Your All Access Pass for any reason. To request a refund, You must email Us at [email protected] We will not issue a refund if You request a refund more than 30 days after the Summit’s Live Virtual Event concludes.
C. AM CROSS-PROMOTIONS: We may, but are not required to, provide AVS Registrants with limited access to AM Content and the AM Community. Any AVS Registrants who access AM Content and AM Community may have the opportunity, at their own caution, to interactively participate and to share personal information with others through OCT. Your participation in the AM Community and your use of OCT is not private. We do not promise or guarantee the confidentiality of any information that You choose to share with Us or to the AM Community. Members of the AM Community may include AVS Participants, even if they are not also AM Members, and we may open up the AM Community, or parts of the AM Community, to AVS Participants at Our sole discretion and without notice to You.
