- REFUND, PAYMENTS, AND CANCELLATION POLICY
Regarding Recurring Payments and Outstanding Invoices: If all eligible payment methods we have on file for you are declined for payment of your monthly or annual subscription fee, you must provide us a new eligible payment method promptly or your membership will be canceled and your Student account may be terminated. Our subscription based memberships will renew automatically without notice from us unless you notify us before a charge that you would like to cancel or you do not want to renew your program, you understand that your membership will automatically continue and you authorize us (without notice to you, unless required by applicable law) to collect any and all outstanding receivables, using any eligible payment method we have on record for your account.
Please do not enroll in Competitive Edge Voice Training courses or memberships if you just want to “audit”, or “dabble”. We have put an extraordinary amount of time, money and effort into our programs, community, and customer support, and we will hold you to the same standard. Competitive Edge Voice Training is for serious actors, ESL students, lawyers, and leaders only.
THE FOLLOWING APPLIES TO STUDENTS WHO ARE DMC and CAP MEMBERS –
- We have a 90-day cancellation policy (read our vision and commitment above). You must go through the training, do the assignments, implement what you learn.
- If you reach out after 90 days to show us that you’ve kept up with all the work (you have to show us proof), you are a talented actor, accepted into the Academy by audition, and for some other reason still haven’t improved or made any progress with your dialects, voice, acting chops, or career, then the commitment will be happily be terminated. Keep in mind that Eliza Jane Schneider’s career and that of others in your Industry Webinar program are not typical. A career takes time to build, and voices take time to train, sometimes up to 12 months of consistently doing the work to see results as everyone is completely unique and there are many variables.
- You agree to do the work, be determined, and not give up.
- The Character Acting Program courses are for actors who are committed to learning and implementing new techniques into their acting work, and NOT for dilettantes only interested in pursuing acting on the side.
- And we will be strict on this last point—you absolutely must do the homework and show up to class to be eligible for cancellation. (There may be exceptions for things that happen that are out of your control and these can be addressed with our support team on a case by case basis, but you must allow two (2) full business days for a response and email us at email@example.com).
THE FOLLOWING APPLIES TO STUDENTS WHO ARE ONGOING DMC MEMBERS AND/OR MEMBERS OF THE CHARACTER ACTING PROGRAM –
- Student’s billing account or credit card will be automatically charged on the same date as the original transaction date on each corresponding month or on the final date of the month if there is no corresponding date.
- Discounts or other special offers (if any) are only valid for the initial term. If you join at a special discounted rate, you will remain at that rate for the lifetime of your subscription. If you cancel your subscription and choose to reactivate at a later date, you will join at the current full subscription rate.
- Competitive Edge Voice Training may terminate your subscription if we are unable to renew the subscription based on inaccurate or outdated credit card information.
- At the discretion of Competitive Edge Voice Training, Students who choose to use PayPal to remit automated subscription payments for their program and do not comply with payment terms, will be required to use a credit card to maintain their account access.
- Membership subscription payments only apply to the program for which they are registered. Subscriptions cannot be transferred to another program for any reason. If you wish to upgrade your subscription, your old subscription will be cancelled, and the new subscription will begin at the current full subscription rate. The new subscription will not be prorated.
- Students with previous lifetime access to any course are limited to their downloads. We are not responsible for any lost files.
- All resources are only accessible as long as you are a subscriber. Downloads of any resources will not be available.
THE FOLLOWING APPLIES TO STUDENTS WHO PURCHASE INDIVIDUAL PROGRAMS
- Student’s billing account or credit card will be automatically charged based on the agreed-to payment plan at the secure online checkout.
- Discounts or other special offers offered to students are only valid for their initial purchase. If you purchase via a payment plan, your payment agreement will be finalized at your checkout.
- Competitive Edge Voice Training may terminate any Student account at any time if we are unable to collect payments due, based on inaccurate or outdated credit card information.
- At the discretion of Competitive Edge Voice Training, Students who choose to use PayPal to remit automated payments for their program and do not comply with payment terms, will be required to use a credit card to maintain their account access.
- Students will have access to their program purchase online for an initial period of one year. Students may have the option to extend their program access for an additional cost.
- Students who are DMC or CAP members are required to complete three months of subscription payments. If you withdraw early, you will lose all access to the course material and course progress. If you choose to rejoin the program, you will have to complete a new registration and begin the course from the beginning.
- After your initial required payment terms as defined by your checkout, you can cancel your subscription at any time.
- If you wish to cancel your subscription, you must contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Your membership will end when you cancel.
For enrollment of the live INNER CIRCLE Character Acting Program, your acceptance and scheduling of the “BONUS” offerings for the perfection of your home studio with Dan Lenard, your 15-minute “BONUS” private call with founder Eliza Jane Schneider, or any additional live offerings obligate you to commit to at least the first three months of coursework. You are expected to complete the entire ten-month program. At that point, you will be considered a graduate and will be eligible for our ongoing graduate programs, including the free industry showcases. All “showcases” or student performances are conducted free of charge, outside the scope of the paid program, by invitation only. There is no guarantee that you will be invited to any “showcases” or student performances. Casting directors and other industry professionals who may be invited to watch you, work with you, or review your demos are being asked to do so outside the context of class.
- DISCLAIMER: The results discussed in our Content are our personal results and in some cases the results of previous or existing clients. Please understand these results are not typical. We’re not implying you’ll duplicate them (or do anything for that matter). The average person who watches “how to” information/webinars gets little to no results. We’re using these references for example purposes only. Your results will vary and depend on many factors including but not limited to your background, experience, and work ethic. All business entails risk as well as massive and consistent effort and action. If you’re not willing to accept that, please DO NOT ATTEND THIS TRAINING.
- We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to restrict, suspend, or terminate this Agreement and your access to all or any part of the Site, at any time and for any reason without notice or liability. We reserve the right to changes, suspend, or discontinue all or any part of the Site, at any time and for any reason without prior notice or liability. The Sections of this Agreement discussing fees and payments (until you pay all fees and taxes due hereunder), intellectual property, Student Content, communications with us, limitations of liability, no warranties, representations and warranties, indemnification, termination of the Agreement, controlling law, binding arbitration, class action waiver, equitable relief shall survive termination of this Agreement.
- BINDING ARBITRATION: In the event of a dispute arising under or relating to this Agreement, the Content, or the Site (each, a “Dispute”), either party may elect to finally and exclusively resolve the dispute by binding arbitration governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”) in Los Angeles, California. Any election to arbitrate, at any time, shall be final and binding on the other party. IF EITHER PARTY CHOOSES ARBITRATION, NEITHER PARTY SHALL HAVE THE RIGHT TO LITIGATE SUCH CLAIM IN COURT OR TO HAVE A JURY TRIAL, EXCEPT EITHER PARTY MAY BRING ITS CLAIM IN ITS LOCAL SMALL CLAIMS COURT, IF PERMITTED BY THAT SMALL CLAIMS COURT RULES AND IF WITHIN SUCH COURT’S JURISDICTION. ARBITRATION IS DIFFERENT FROM COURT, AND DISCOVERY AND APPEAL RIGHTS MAY ALSO BE LIMITED IN ARBITRATION. All disputes will be resolved before a neutral arbitrator selected jointly by the parties, whose decision will be final, except for a limited right of appeal under the FAA. The arbitration shall be commenced and conducted by JAMS pursuant to its then current Comprehensive Arbitration Rules www.adr.org and Procedures and in accordance with the Expedited Procedures in those rules, or, where appropriate, pursuant to JAMS’ Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures. All applicable JAMS’ rules and procedures are available at the JAMS website www.jamsadr.com. Each party will be responsible for paying any JAMS filing, administrative, and arbitrator fees in accordance with JAMS rules. Judgment on the arbitrator’s award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. This clause shall not preclude parties from seeking provisional remedies in aid of arbitration from a court of appropriate jurisdiction. The arbitration may be conducted in person, through the submission of documents, by phone, or online. If conducted in person, the arbitration shall take place in the United States county where you reside. The parties may litigate in court to compel arbitration, to stay a proceeding pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate, or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator. The parties shall cooperate in good faith in the voluntary and informal exchange of all non-privileged documents and other information (including electronically stored information) relevant to the Dispute immediately after commencement of the arbitration. As set forth in below, nothing in this Agreement will prevent us from seeking injunctive relief in any court of competent jurisdiction as necessary to protect our proprietary interests.
- CLASS ACTION WAIVER: You agree that any arbitration or proceeding shall be limited to the Dispute between us and you individually. To the full extent permitted by law, (i) no arbitration or proceeding shall be joined with any other; (ii) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be arbitrated or resolved on a class action-basis or to utilize class action procedures; and (iii) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf of the general public or any other persons. YOU AGREE THAT YOU MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST US ONLY IN YOUR INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING.
- You acknowledge and agree that in the event of a breach or threatened violation of our intellectual property rights and confidential and proprietary information by you, we will suffer irreparable harm and will therefore be entitled to injunctive relief to enforce this Agreement. We may, without waiving any other remedies under this Agreement, seek from any court having jurisdiction any interim, equitable, provisional, or injunctive relief that is necessary to protect our rights and property pending the outcome of the arbitration referenced above. You hereby irrevocably and unconditionally consent to the personal and subject matter jurisdiction of the federal and state courts in the State of California, County of Los Angeles for purposes of any such action by us.
- Our failure to act on or enforce any provision of the Agreement shall not be construed as a waiver of that provision or any other provision in this Agreement. No waiver shall be effective against us unless made in writing, and no such waiver shall be construed as a waiver in any other or subsequent instance. Except as expressly agreed by us and you in writing, this Agreement constitutes the entire Agreement between you and us with respect to the subject matter, and supersedes all previous or contemporaneous agreements, whether written or oral, between the parties with respect to the subject matter. The section headings are provided merely for convenience and shall not be given any legal import. This Agreement will inure to the benefit of our successors, assigns, licensees, and sublicensees.
