Acceptance of Terms of Service
These Terms of Service govern your use of all websites published by Etiquette Moms (EM) and Moms on Edge LLC. By using, visiting, or browsing EM’s websites, you accept and agree to be bound by these Terms of Service. If you do not agree to these Terms of Service, you should not use EM's websites.
Changes to Terms of Service
EM reserves the right, from time to time, with or without notice to you, to change these Terms of Service in our sole discretion. The most current version of these Terms of Service is posted on the site, and can be reviewed by clicking on the "Terms of Service" link located at the bottom of most of the sites' pages. The most current version of the Terms of Service will supersede all previous versions. Your use of the EM websites after changes are made means that you agree to be bound by such changes.
Membership and Billing
You can find the specific details regarding your billing program with EM at any time by viewing the payment terms on the registration page you used to register with your program. We reserve the right to terminate any account at any time for any reason.
As a customer of a EM program, you agree that we are permitted to charge or debit, as applicable, your fees and any applicable tax or other charges you may incur in connection with your use of EM's services. As used in these Terms of Service, "billing" shall indicate either a charge or debit, as applicable, against your Payment Method. The fee will be billed according to the terms on your registration page (the page where you entered your account information). You shall be responsible for all charges incurred through your account as well as for paying any applicable taxes. We will automatically bill your Payment Method for each billing period on the calendar day corresponding to the commencement of your membership. If you want to use a different Payment Method or if there is a change in your credit card validity or expiration date, you may edit your Payment Method information by contacting us at email@example.com.
Your right to use any EM program is conditional upon our receipt of payment. If payment cannot be charged to your credit card or if a charge is refunded for any reason, including chargeback, we reserve the right to immediately and without notice, either suspend or terminate your access and account, thereby terminating this Agreement and all EM obligations hereunder. You are required to pay any amounts still owed to us at the time your account is suspended or terminated. Terminations are not retroactive. If you have an outstanding balance due on any EM account, you hereby agree that EM may charge these unpaid fees to your credit card. If your account balance is 30 days overdue, you lose any and all authorization to use any EM materials shipped to you with clients or in a commercial setting.
You acknowledge that if we offer installments, it is as a convenience and in no way meant to be as a "subscription" program. You are obligated to pay all installments until your balance is fully paid for the full price of the program, whether you choose to continue to participate actively in the program while installments come due or not. You may not cancel your installments for this course, just as you would not cancel the payment plan for an automobile.
No refunds are offered. It is up to you to be sure that this program is a good fit for your needs, and then to do the work required to complete it. Do not sign up if you are not serious about entering this field and working with us, as in any other endeavor or coursework, to succeed.
Disclaimers of Warranties and Limitations on Liability
In no event shall EM, its shareholders, directors, officers, or employees be liable (jointly or severally) to you for any special, incidental, indirect or consequential damages of any kind, or any damages whatsoever resulting from your clients, your loss of use, data or profits, whether or not advised of the possibility of damage, and on any theory of liability, arising out of or in connection with the use or performance of the information in this program.

Third Party Content
In general, the content available on the EM websites is supplied by users and third parties. As such, EM distributes content without editorial control (as does a bookstore or library). Any opinions, advice, statements, services, offers, or other information or content expressed or made available by third parties, including information providers, are those of the respective authors or distributors, and not EM. Neither EM nor any third-party provider of information guarantees the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of any content.

Further, you are entirely responsible for any and all conduct through your account, whether by you or someone else. You agree to notify EM immediately of any unauthorized use of your account or any other breach of security. EM will not be liable for any loss that you may incur as a result of someone else using your password or account, either with or without your knowledge. However, you may be held liable for any losses incurred by EM or another party due to someone else using your account or password.

This Agreement and the relationship between you and EM shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Florida, without regard to its conflict of law provisions.

The failure of EM to exercise or enforce any right or provision of this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of this Agreement is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be unlawful, void or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severed herewith and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions. The section titles in this Agreement are for convenience purposes only and have no legal or contractual effect. This Agreement is not assignable, transferable or sub-licensable by you except with our prior written consent. However, we may assign this Agreement to any third party whom we choose without your consent. No waiver by EM of any breach or default hereunder shall be deemed a waiver of any preceding or subsequent breach or default.
