It is your responsibility to review these Terms prior to initial use as well as periodically throughout your use of the Services.

In consideration for access to the Services, the Fees can be paid in one of two ways:
One off lump sum payment of Fees via PayPal or Stripe (“Full Payment Fee”); or
Instalment payments via Stripe (“Payment Plan Fee”).
Your preferred payment option must be selected at the time of enrolment and cannot be changed at a later date.  The total amount of the Fees will be dependent on the payment method you select at time of purchase.
Where you select the Full Payment Fee, you will pay the amount specified on the Site.  Where you select the Payment Plan Fee, you will be charged for the initial payment at time of purchase and all subsequent payments will be automatically charged, on the anniversary of the initial payment and the total number of payments are as identified on our Site.  Where you opt for our instalment plan, you will remain responsible at all times for those payments unless you request a refund in accordance with our Refund Policy set out below.  You cannot under any circumstances cancel payments except in accordance with our Refund Policy.
Method of Payment
You authorise us to automatically charge the credit card or debit card provided at the time of purchase for the Fees when they are due and in accordance with these Terms.
If you choose to pay in instalments, you authorise us to automatically charge the credit card or debit card on file for any payment balances owing and agree to keep all billing information and personal information current at all times and must notify us immediately of any changes to those details.  You understand and agree that as payments are electronic, you will ensure that you have adequate funds available. 
Notwithstanding any adjustments made to payment dates by any third party payment provider such as Stripe, you acknowledge and agree that payments must be made on the applicable due dates and you must do all things reasonably necessary to ensure sufficient funds are in place to ensure payments are made on the applicable due dates.  
Where you fail to make payment or payment is declined for any reason, you must provide a new eligible method of payment immediately or we may suspend or revoke your access to our Services. You will be liable for all outstanding payments, including third party payment provider fees, any costs incurred by us trying to recoup the outstanding Fees such as debt collection agency costs, including any reasonable legal costs on any Fees that remain outstanding. For the period where your access is restricted or revoked, you acknowledge and agree that we will not be liable to you for any refund of the Fees due to a failure by you to pay the Fee when due or be entitled to any extended period of access to the Services due to such restriction or revocation.  You further acknowledge and agree that your obligations to continue paying the Payment Plan Fee continues for the remainder of the term of the Services selected.
At the time of enrolment, we may offer bonuses to individuals who sign up for certain Services. You are entitled to any bonuses that are offered at the time of your enrolment for the applicable Services. Please note that bonuses are not guaranteed to be available at all times and their availability may vary depending on promotions we may have throughout the year.
The Fees are non-refundable except as set out below or as otherwise required by law or at our sole discretion. We do not provide refunds simply because your situation has changed or you have changed your mind.
We want you to be 100% happy with your purchase, and so we provide the following subject to the specific Services selected:
