3.1 Subscriptions, Trials, and Digital Products
Free Trials: Your Storyteller Academy membership may start with a free trial. The free trial period of your membership lasts for 14 days, or as otherwise specified during sign-up and is intended to allow new and certain former members to try the service.
Free trial eligibility: Eligibility is determined by Storyteller Academy at its sole discretion and we may limit eligibility or duration to prevent free trial abuse. We reserve the right to revoke the free trial and put your account on hold in the event that we determine that you are not eligible. Members of households with an existing or recent Storyteller Academy membership are not eligible. We may use information such as device ID, method of payment, or an account email address used with an existing or recent Storyteller Academy membership to determine eligibility. For combinations with other offers, restrictions may apply.
Trial Billing: We will charge your payment method for your monthly membership fee at the end of the free trial period. Your membership will automatically renew monthly unless you cancel your membership prior to the end of the free trial period. To view the monthly membership price, please send a request to email@example.com.
Billing Cycle: The membership fee for Storyteller Academy’s service and any other charges you may incur in connection with your use of the service, such as taxes and possible transaction fees, will be charged on a monthly or annual basis to your payment method on the calendar day corresponding to when you started paying for your membership until your membership is canceled.
Membership fees are fully earned upon payment. In some cases, your payment date may change, for example, if your payment method has not successfully settled or if your paid membership began on a day not contained in a given month. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org with questions regarding your renewal date. We may authorize your payment method in anticipation of membership or service-related charges through various methods, including authorizing it up to approximately one month of service as soon as you register. In some instances, your available balance or credit limit may be reduced to reflect the authorization during your free trial period.
Cancellation: You can cancel your Storyteller Academy membership at any time.
You can cancel by writing us anytime with your request by replying to any of our emails or writing email@example.com
MONTHLY Membership Cancellation:
You may receive a full refund for the first month of your membership if you cancel within the first 30-days.
After the first 30 days, no refunds will be given for any prior month. We release a new class for you nearly every month.
If you cancel, you will lose access to the Storyteller Academy Courses Library and all the programs or bonuses within.
You will receive a refund of the prorated amount remaining in the month you cancel.
For example: Your membership renews on the 10th. You cancel on the 20th. You will receive a refund for the remaining 20-21 days of that month.
If you purchased a membership that comes with a free book and you canceled within 30-days, we will deduct the price of the book from the refund amount.
Refunds will not be given to any customer for one specific product more than twice. There is an unlimited amount of orders that a customer can place for one specific product, but the money-back guarantee is void after a customer has used it for one specific product more than twice.
ANNUAL Membership Cancellation:
There are no refunds on annual memberships after your 30-day money-back guarantee has expired.
You can cancel at any time, preventing your automatic renewal, but will maintain access to all courses, mini-classes, events, and other membership perks for the remainder of your prepaid membership year.
In the event of extenuating circumstances, Storyteller Academy reserves the right to convert your annual membership to a monthly membership and refund you accordingly.
For example: You pay $750 for an annual membership, but 6 months in you’ve experienced a personal tragedy and through discussions with support, we decide to convert you to a monthly plan and cancel your membership. Six months as a monthly member would equal $450 (6*$75). We would then issue a refund for $300.
Conversion to a monthly membership is solely at the discretion of the Storyteller Academy staff.
- If you purchased a membership that comes with a free book and you canceled within 30-days, we will deduct the price of the book from the refund amount.
- Refunds will not be given to any customer for one specific product more than twice. There is an unlimited amount of orders that a customer can place for one specific product, but the money-back guarantee is void after a customer has used it for one specific product more than twice.
Dismissal: We reserve the right to dismiss members from our community and/or platform at any time. Our community is one of inclusivity and positivity. Public discrimination, shaming and, bullying will not be tolerated. Routine, persistent negativity is detrimental to the community at large and will be closely monitored. After two instances, the at-fault member will be issued a request for behavior correction. The next infraction will result in dismissal. Re-enrollment is at Storyteller Academy's discretion. We encourage members and students to provide feedback and report all incidents directly to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- TERMS OF RENEWAL
