As our Company evolves, our Website and its contents will change with it. We reserve the right to delete, withdraw, or edit this Website (and any service or material we provide on the Website) however we see fit, at any time, and without notice. We are not liable to you if the Website or any part of it is unavailable.

Refund Policy

The Social Stager believes in all of its products and services. It believes the methods work, but only if the Client is dedicated to the process.

For digital products and templates, The Social Stager cannot offer refunds once the Client has purchased the product and gained access to the products for any reason, including the inability to obtain access to the site. If the Client is dissatisfied with his/her purchase or otherwise unable to view it in its entirety, he or she may reach out to The Social Stager.

For The Social Stager Program, The Social Stager offers a 5-Day money back refund only if the Client has reached out to The Social Stager before 11:59 pm on the fifth day following their purchase and only if they have not completed more than the welcome module or downloaded the Social Stager program materials. If either or both of these conditions are not met, then a refund will not be issued. The Social Stager reserves the right to refuse any and all refunds if they deem that the Client is being untruthful or that the Client was trying to get their proprietary social media strategy for free.

Client further agrees and understands that changing his/her mind about the purchase, failing to follow through or understand the details of the product, not experiencing results he/she expected or desired, or experiencing any other similar situations does not entitle him/her to a refund.

For The Social Stager's social media management, copywriting, and content creation services, all work is approved in advance by the client, and therefore no refunds are offered for those services.

For coaching strategy sessions, The Social Stager will offer not offer refunds for sessions that are canceled with less than 12 hours notice. For all other cancellations, The Social Stager will apply any monies paid towards a rebooked coaching session or if the Client does not want to rebook, The Social Stager will offer a full refund less a 25% administrative fee.

For the Social Stager's coaching packages, refunds will be considered on a case-by-case basis. If the Client is unable to complete the work and/or meet with their Coach due to physical limitations or due to a sudden and unavoidable life event, The Social Stager will take that into consideration. The Social Stager, in those types of scenarios, will put the Client's account on hold for a period of up to 6 months and apply any monies paid towards rebooking coaching sessions once the Client is ready to continue. If the Client is unable to continue, they must provide written proof that documentation on the issues or limitations which make proceeding with the coaching program impossible. Any refunds offered will be calculated based on coaching sessions already completed, any course materials already received, and less a standard 25% administrative fee.

Chargebacks

In the event a chargeback is attempted with your financial institution, you are expressly agreeing to pay the full cost of your original purchase, plus any fees or associated costs incurred by the Company. We have the right to present these Terms to your financial institution, any payment processing company and/or investigating agency concerning the attempted chargeback or financial dispute.
