Course Creator Terms of Service
Welcome to the Coaching Masters! We’re excited to have you on board and we can’t wait to start working together! Before we get on to delivering the good stuff, let’s get the formalities out of the way. Here at The Coaching Masters it’s important to us that we do things the right way and that means giving you the information you need about our services so you’re clear and comfortable about what’s involved, what we expect from you and what you can expect from us.
We totally get that reading terms and conditions is not the most fun, so we’ve tried our best to make things as simple as possible which includes avoiding complicated legal terms or jargon. We simply want to ensure that we start out in the best possible way with complete trust and confidence! If the terms look long, don’t panic, we’ll send you a copy for you to keep and review at a later date.
Here’s to your success!

6. Order Acceptance
6.1. Your purchase of our Services is a contractual offer that we may choose to accept.

7.1. The purchase fee for your chosen Service is as set out in the schedule 1 below to these terms and conditions and on our Website at the time of your purchase (“the Fee”).
You understand and agree that by making this purchase you are accessing an online product, which means you are not eligible for a refund once payment is made. In addition, the courses contain Services which you will have access to prior to the end of your cooling off period. By proceeding with the purchase, you hereby waive your right to a cooling off period.
If you have purchased a TCM product and agreed to pay the agreed price in instalments through our payment plan scheme, you are obligated to maintain all scheduled payments on time.
You are required to make every agreed payment on time until the end of the agreed payment plan term.
Defaulting on or missing scheduled payments without prior notice to customer services may result in legal action being taken against you or debt recovery specialists being instructed..
If you are unable to make one of your scheduled payments for any reason, including financial difficulty, you must contact customer services to inform them of your situation and come to a solution with them.
If you do not respond to any customer service correspondence regarding failed payments, then your plan will be referred to our legal department.
The charts below reflect the standard full amounts for each course and their payment plans. If you have agreed an alternative amount payable for your chosen product with a TCM representative at the time of purchase then your arranged billing amount and duration will stand as proof of your agreed payments, and the below charts will not be applicable for you.
Please note that our prices are charged in USD. Any payments made from banks using a different currency may incur a foreign transaction fee (subject to specific bank terms and conditions). This is NOT an additional charge from The Coaching Masters, this is solely at the discretion of your bank.
To avoid any foreign transaction fees we recommend using a travel credit card with 0% foreign transaction fees to perform your transaction.
Schedule 1: Services and Payment Plans
7.2. Time for payment of the Fee shall be of the essence and shall be made without deduction, set off, or any form of withholding except as is required by law and we must receive cleared payment before you are entitled to access the Services.
7.3. If you choose to pay the Fee by credit or debit card then you authorise us to charge your payment method. If it is rejected, or fails, but you’ve still received access to the Services, you agree to provide full payment of the Fee within 7 days from access to the Services being provided.
7.4. If we agree to accept payment of the Fee by instalments, then you agree to provide the instalments as and when they fall due in accordance with the instalment plan provided to you at the time of your purchase. You understand that you will remain responsible for providing the instalment payments until the Fee has been paid in full. In accordance with our refund policy set out below, no refunds apply to your purchase of the Services and you will continue to remain responsible for payment of the Fee until it has been paid in full. You may only cancel monthly payments within the first 14 days of this agreement where there is an issue of satisfactory quality regarding the course. In the event that you do not complete all agreed monthly payments, your certification shall become null and void.
7.5. We reserve the right to change the Fees at any time. Any changes will not affect the price of Services where payment has already been made and a welcome email sent.
7.6. If you purchase Services on a monthly subscription basis then you will be liable to make payment every month until you cancel your subscription in accordance with these Terms. You authorise us to request payment of the monthly amount from your chosen payment method on a rolling monthly basis.

8.2. If your payment is over 30 days late, we reserve the right to instruct a collection or legal agent to seek recovery of the outstanding amount along with our reasonable costs incurred in taking such action
9.1. We want you to be entirely satisfied with the Services. If you decide to cancel, you can do so as follows:
9.1.1. You can request a full refund between the first 7 and 14 days of any course, due to concerns with the quality of our product, from the date of your first session, subject to you having attended every session within the first 7 days, and you have, in our reasonable opinion, a genuine complaint concerning the quality of the Service.
9.2. No refunds apply once the 14-day periods set out above have passed.
9.3. Given our refund policy, no chargeback or threatened chargeback claims will be accepted. If you have any concerns with our Services, then you agree to notify us in accordance with these Terms. If you pursue a chargeback claim without contacting us first, then you accept such action constitutes a breach of these Terms, and you’ll indemnify us against any charges, costs or fees imposed on us by your debit or credit provider or our merchant service provider, along with our reasonable costs at a rate of £100 per hour.
9.4. Should you not be satisfied due to the quality of the course you have purchased, you are invited to communicate these concerns or complaints to our customer support team in writing between the first 7 and 14 days of the course you are attending.

To qualify for this, you must have taken part in at least the first 7 days of the course you have purchased and no more than 14 days of the purchased course.
You will also be expected to provide evidence to justify your claim of unacceptable quality of service on the course you have purchased or any other reason you feel that your experience has been disrupted at the fault of The Coaching Masters.
9.5. Please note that if you did not pay for your course in USD, then when you receive your refund there may be a slight difference in the refund value to the rate you originally paid. This is due to foreign exchange rate fluctuation. All refunds are processed for the exact value of the product in USD only. We take no responsibility for any difference in the rate that you might receive at the time of refund.9.6 In the event that you receive a free gift as part of your course purchase (“Gift”), that Gift is offered entirely at our discretion and is subject to availability. We reserve the right to change the free gifts on offer at any point without notice. If you choose to accept the Gift, and cancel your course later and request a refund after receiving the Gift, you will be required to keep the Gift and we will deduct the recommended retail price of the Gift from the refund you receive. This policy ensures fairness and transparency regarding the treatment of free gifts in course cancellations.
