LAST UPDATED: JANUARY 15, 2017
You are responsible for reviewing and becoming familiar with our Terms of Service Agreement. The following section provides valuable information about our website, your membership and our relationship serving you. Your use of BreakThroughBS.com (hereafter, BreakThroughBS) and its services following this notification constitutes your acceptance of the terms and conditions of this Terms of Service Agreement. If you do not agree with these terms and conditions, please do not use this website.
By using and/or registering to become a member of BreakThroughBS, you are stating that you understand and agree to be bound by the terms and conditions of this BreakThroughBS’s user agreement (the “agreement”). Please read this agreement. If you disagree with anything in this agreement, please do not use BreakThroughBS or any of the services provided in connection with BreakThroughBS. If you have any questions regarding this Agreement, please feel free to contact us.
To use BreakThroughBS and gain access to any protected content, you must purchase your own, personal membership subscription and register to become a member (“Member”). Only one person can be registered per membership. Memberships cannot be shared or combined. If a member is caught sharing their membership with other non-paying members, your membership account will be terminated.
As a Member, you will have access to various services to which non-Members do not have access. If you would like to register to become a Paid Member and gain full access to BreakThroughBS and all our software training classes, business reports and audio/video tutorials online, please do so.
Your personal username (i.e., eMail address) and password belong to you and cannot be shared with anyone. If you are found sharing your membership login information with other non-paying members, your membership account will be terminated.
When you complete the new Member registration process, you agree to: provide true, accurate, current and complete information as prompted by the registration form, maintain and update such information to keep it true, accurate, current and complete at all times, and that you are the age that you state.
If any information provided by you on the registration form is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, or if we have reasonable grounds to so believe, we have the right to suspend or terminate your membership and to refuse to provide you with any future membership. If we have reason to believe that you have registered someone other than yourself, we will cooperate with any law enforcement investigation that may result from such misrepresentations and shall have the right, in our sole discretion, to disclose any information you provided to us in connection with such registration.
BreakThroughBS makes a good faith effort to prohibit registration as a Member by, and will not knowingly connect or store personal information from, children under the age 18 as governed by law.
We reserve the right to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, BreakThroughBS (or any part thereof) with or without notice. You agree that BreakThroughBS shall not be liable to you or to any third party for any such action.
“Lifetime Memberships” are defined as having membership access to BreakThroughBS.com for the “lifetime” this website stays open for business. If, for any reason, BreakThroughBS.com were to close tomorrow, that would “end” all “lifetime memberships.” Again, “lifetime” refers to the “lifetime” of our website (not “your” life).
BreakThroughBS reserves the right to raise or lower any and all fees with regard to any monthly membership plans at its sole discretion to help offset costs of maintaining operations at BreakThroughBS.
In no event will you be charged for access to any section of BreakThroughBS, or as a whole, unless we obtain your prior agreement to pay such charges. If you do not consent to such charges, however, you may not have permission to access paid content or special training services offered by BreakThroughBS.
Please contact us for further information or questions about our Fees Policy.
“Lifetime Memberships” do not need to be cancelled; they last for the “lifetime” of this website.
If you have a monthly (or other package) membership subscription, you may cancel your membership at any time. Simply contact my office to submit your request to cancel your membership in writing. Also, if you paid through PayPal, you can login to your PalPal account and cancel the subscription payments within your PayPal account.
We will send you an eMail confirmation to the eMail address you supply us to inform you that your membership has been cancelled. See our REFUND POLICY below for information regarding refunds.
When you cancel your membership, your account will remain open until your paid monthly cycle expires. You will not be recharged at the end of your monthly billing cycle if you cancel before or within 3 days after your billing cycle is to occur.
Please contact us for further information or questions about our Cancellation Policy.
You have until 3 days after the date you initially register to become a paid Member of our site (or after your credit card is billed for your monthly cycle) to cancel and request a full refund. After 3 days, your membership is active and there are no refunds available.
This policy has only been adopted because of necessity. BreakThroughBS is always open to abuse by people who signup for our service, come inside and learn what they want within a short period of time and then request a full refund.
At BreakThroughBS, we make every effort to keep our clients and members happy. Refunds are only issued to the same eMail address and credit card they were originally purchased with.
Please contact my office for further information or questions about our Refund Policy.
