The parties to this agreement are the website or its owners, hereafter “SELLER,” and you, the prospective purchaser, hereafter “BUYER”. Persons or entities who are not participants in this contract but who have an indirect relationship, such as a supplier, joint venture partner, membership organization, or sales affiliate, are herein described as “THIRD PARTY OR THIRD PARTIES.” The recipient of the product herein sold, where said product is ordered by and paid for by someone other than the recipient, is classified herein as if that recipient were the ordering BUYER with the same rights, duties, and obligations as the BUYER, but may also be referred to herein as ‘RECIPIENT”.
SUBJECT MATTER OF THIS PURCHASE AGREEMENT
The subject matter of this agreement is a product, service, or membership described in promotional or sales materials on this website and/or in an email referencing this website, and said website and/or email and its contents are incorporated herein by reference and made a part hereof and constitute a complete description of the product, service or membership that is the subject matter of this Purchase Agreement. This bundle of offerings, including additional items promoted on the order page, shall, together, be termed ‘product’ throughout this agreement but the word ‘product’ shall mean all elements offered in the sale, whether digital, dimensional, or other license or right, and include all sales or promotional materials.
The products or membership referenced herein are sold with a 30 days ‘no questions asked’ money back guarantee. Consulting services and mentoring are covered by our MAD Guarantee. If the product is other than an e-product or digital product, the product must be returned during the refund period to the shipping address provided with the product.

The Buyer understands that all rights to view the product and all license or resale rights terminate when the product is returned for a refund. (Selling of a product in which you have no ownership interest or resale license rights is a crime as well as breach of this agreement.)

Buyer agrees that the length of the refund period is reasonable and further agrees to examine, read, and try the product, service or membership during the 30 days refund period as a material consideration required by the Seller as part of the purchase price. Buyer further warrants that he or she will make a determination during the 30 days refund period if the product is as described and to decide whether the Buyer wishes to keep the product. If the Buyer does not contact the Seller during the refund period, Buyer agrees that the Seller may construe silence as a full, complete and final acceptance of the product, service or membership with no further right of redress or refund for any reason due the Buyer.
FURTHER DESCRIPTION OF THE PRODUCT, SERVICE OR MEMBERSHIP
Buyer warrants an understanding that the product, service or membership may actually be comprised of different elements. For example, a digital or so-called e-book may also come in CD or printed format, and that the digital product may also be part of a service or a membership.

SPECIFIC DISCLAIMERS AS TO ‘RESULTS CLAIMS’, ‘INCOME CLAIMS’, OR ‘EARNINGS CLAIMS’ IN SALES AND PROMOTIONAL MATERIALS OR PRODUCT
If claims about results from using this product or if claims about income or earnings resulting from the use of this product are made, such claims are true for the persons who made the claims, including claims made by the Seller about its own experience with the product.
However, Buyer cannot simply rely on these statements as being duplicable by Buyer because many factors affect results, including just dumb luck. Some people buy this product to make money and, in fact, make no money. Some people buy this product and never read it or attempt to implement any of the moneymaking ideas. Some folks seemingly take to it like a duck to water and can’t stop making money. Nothing promoted on this website should be construed as a ‘Get rich quick’ scheme. The products Buyer is buying to learn how to make money or products that Buyer is buying to re-sell, have all been proven money-makers. The income and earnings statements, if any, tend to reflect the more successful cases and Buyer should not construe this as being the ‘average’ or usual success story. As is true in much of life, real success usually requires real work. Learning about the internet is not terrible work and it can produce very livable income if Buyer is willing to learn his or her craft and work at it steadily. Even part-time efforts may bring in some extra money each month. But it requires learning skills that Buyer may not have a background to easily learn and will certainly require constant education and, perhaps, even psychological motivation to keep Buyer directed toward his or her goals.
If the product Buyer is purchasing is a physical product promoted for a particular purpose and if the promotional materials make claims about the results from the use of this product, Buyer hereby warrants his understanding that there exists some probability that the product will not deliver those same results to any particular Buyer and that the refund of the purchase price (subject to the return of the product to the Seller) is the full remedy for any Buyer who feels the product did not deliver the results claimed.If the product Buyer is purchasing is a membership or a product plan’ that claims to produce specific benefits or results or that otherwise involves a recurring fee, the Buyer has a right to terminate the membership or plan’ upon notice to the Seller. In this case, the promotional materials describing the membership and the ?plan’ and the remedy for dissatisfaction shall be controlling. If the promotional materials say that part of a fee is not refundable, then it is not.
Where this disclaimer and claims made in sales and promotional materials or the product are in conflict, this Purchase Agreement shall be controlling except, and unless, the Seller deliberately misled the Buyer or if such construction would cause material inequity. The sole burden is on the Buyer to substantiate any deliberate deception. Buyer accepts the obligation to reimburse the Seller for all court costs, investigation costs, attorney fees, and all litigation-related costs in the event Buyer brings suit against the Seller and does not prevail in court or at arbitration.
No warranties are made whatsoever about the amount of money, if any, that Buyer will earn from this material or product or service and Buyer warrants an understanding that Buyer’s only course of action is to test this product and material for the extent of the refund period and request a refund if Buyer is not satisfied prior to its expiration.Buyer, again, warrants an understanding that in any event, for any reason, no matter the amount of damages claimed, as a material part of the consideration for purchase of this product, the maximum amount of liability shall be the purchase price of the product.
