THIS AGREEMENT is made between Dora Carpenter, Brand Your Passions Consultant ("Coach") and the below signed ("Client" or “You/Your”). The term “Agreement” refers to this Program Agreement.
WHEREAS, Client desires to receive participation in the Brand Your Passions Program and coaching services from Coach, and Coach desires to provide such Program and services based on the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement.
NOW, THEREFORE, for mutual consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which is hereby acknowledged, Client and Coach hereby agree to the following terms of this Agreement as follows:
1. Program Description.
Under the terms of this Agreement, Coach agrees to provide services through the Brand Your Passions Program (“Program”) in the form of webinars, audio and/or visual presentations and videos, and workbooks delivered by Carolin Soldo, and personal coaching provided by Coach.
The term of this Agreement will commence upon: (1) Your signature of this Agreement and (2) payment of the applicable Program Fee or successful approval and completion of financing provided by an approved third-party finance provider facilitated by Coach (“3rd Party Finance Provider”). If the 3rd Party Finance Provider fails to approve Client’s financing and Client does not otherwise provide payment in full, this contract is null and void.
3. Program Fee.
Client agrees to compensate Coach for the Program with a Program Fee according to the payment schedule set forth in Exhibit A. Client agrees that Client is financially willing and able to invest in this Program by choice, and that by so doing, Client is not incurring any economic hardship in any way.
4. Credit Card Authorization and Receipt.
If paying by PayPal, debit card, or credit card, Client gives Coach permission to automatically charge Client’s credit card or debit card in the amounts set forth on Exhibit A. To the extent that Client provides Coach with credit card information for payment on Client’s account, Coach shall be authorized to charge Client’s credit card(s) for any unpaid charges. If Client uses a multiple-payment plan to make payments to Coach, Coach shall be authorized to make all charges at the time they are due and is not required to seek separate authorization to do so. Payment dates and amounts may be modified if agreed to in advance in writing by both Coach and Client.
5. No Refunds.
Because considerable time and effort has gone into creating all aspects of the Program, if Client decides to withdraw from the Program at any time for any reason, Client is still fully responsible for making all Program payments, and no refunds, in full or in part, will be provided. By signing this Agreement below, Client fully agrees and understands that Client is and shall be responsible for making all payment amounts of the Program Fee on the payment schedule as set forth in Exhibit A and that if Client seeks a refund or withdraws from the Program, for any reason whatsoever at any time, Client shall not be entitled to a refund.
6. Chargebacks and Payment Security.
Your financial commitment to his Program is important. Client hereby agrees not to make any chargebacks to Coach’s account. Client further agrees to not cancel the credit card provided as security without concurrent notice to Coach at the time such credit card is cancelled and the furnishing of replacement credit card information. Client is responsible for any fees associated with recouping payment on chargebacks and any other fees in connection with Coach's collection of payment hereunder. Client’s participation in the Program is voluntary and entered into with the full understanding and agreement as set forth in Section 4 that Client will make all Program Fee payments. Client has been given an opportunity to ask any questions about the Program and Program Fee payments prior to signing this Agreement and is choosing now to enter the Agreement with the commitment to honor the payment schedule on Exhibit A and not default on payments or make chargebacks.
7. Failed Payments.
In the event Client fails to make any of the payments for the Program Fee as set forth in Exhibit A, Coach has the right to immediately cease the Program, including all access to Program materials, Client agrees and understands that Client is responsible for and will be charged any collection fees or charges and/or reasonable attorney fees incurred in connection with the cost of collecting such fees and payments.
8. Case Studies and Testimonials.
Coach has the right to use case studies of Client’s situations and results or Client testimonials in future work but without making reference to Client’s full identity. Client will always be contacted by Coach for approval prior to any case study or testimonial being published in which Client will be identified by full name or identity. Client also acknowledges that all Program coaching or training calls may be recorded and that they are for training purposes only, to be used exclusively by Coach and Coach’s Team. By accepting the terms of this Agreement and affirmatively seeking the benefits of membership in the Program, Client affirmatively agrees and acknowledges that Coach may at any time reproduce and/or disseminate any testimonial describing or otherwise referencing, either directly or indirectly, Client’s experience in the Program, including any specific results experienced by You during the Program and no compensation will be provided to You. Client agrees and acknowledges that this includes any written statements You may publish to social media accounts and online forums as well as any statements and/or images captured or otherwise recorded at any live, video, audio, or recorded event(s) in which You participate even if You aren’t intending to make such submission as a testimonial. Client further represents that any such statements or testimonials that You make during the Program shall be correct, accurate, and truthful.
9. Intellectual Property Rights.
Carolin Soldo Coaching & Events, LLC retains all ownership and intellectual property rights to the Brand Your Passions Program and Brand Your Passions Program materials provided to Client through the Program, including all copyrights and any trademarks belonging to same.

No other license is being granted or implied to You.
The purpose of the Program is to train and educate Client about key areas of business to assist Client in Your own practice in a different field from Coach, and not for Client to learn and use this information to compete with Coach’s business or the Program, directly or indirectly, in any way. With that understanding, Client fully agrees that Client shall not use any of Coach’s or Coach’s Team’s intellectual property learned through the Program, in part or in full, purposes including during coaching sessions with Coach or Coach’s Team, for Client’s business in a way that competes, directly or indirectly with Coach’s business and such use shall be considered improper and unauthorized use of the Program and/or Program Materials.
Such intellectual property, including the Program and Program materials, is a special, unique and valuable asset of Coach’s that has been created with extensive time and care. Client agrees not to teach, coach, launch or offer programs, services or information that is, or is perceived to be, the same as, or substantially similar to the Program, in whole or in part, and/or in direct competition with Coach now or at any time in the future. This includes but is not limited to Client holding him/herself out as or offering coaching or consulting services in areas such as Business, Marketing, Advertising, Branding, Technology, or any subject covered in the Program and Program materials now or at any time in the future. Further, Client agrees not to launch or offer programs that are marketed to potential or current clients of Coach or Client that are in direct competition, or perceived to be in direct competition, with Coach or Coach’s Team. A perceived or proven breach of this section of the Agreement is considered material and is grounds for immediate termination of Coach’s participation in the Program without notice.
Coach intends for the Program to be a positive learning experience for all participants, free from sales or marketing from any of the Program participants. Client agrees that the Client will not at any time during the Program, or during or after the term of this Agreement solicit business, attempt to solicit business, advertise or teach about Client’s area of expertise, or enter into business relationships with Coach’s or Coach’s Team’s past or current clients or Program participants, without the prior written permission of Coach. Client agrees and understands that Client is not to market, gift or sell Client’s programs, products, services or information, directly or indirectly, through any of the platforms provided by Coach during the Program, including but not limited to videos, group calls, member forums, members’ website, social media groups/pages, e-mail communications, chats, or by any other form of communication. Client agrees not to solicit, influence or attempt to solicit or influence any of Coach’s or Coach’s Team’s clients, customers, Program participants, employees, or contractors, either directly or indirectly, to direct any purchase or use of products and/or services from Client or provide advertising, marketing, gift or sale of any products or services of any kind, to any of Coach’s clients, customers, Program participants, employees, or contractors, without the prior written permission of Coach. In addition, Client agrees not to hire or enter into agreements with Coach’s current contractors, team members, or employees or solicit or persuade, or attempt to solicit or persuade, any of Coach’s employees, contractors, consultants, or persons in the process of being recruited to hold such positions, to end or to modify any existing relationship with Coach, or not to enter a relationship with Coach. A perceived or proven breach of this section of the Agreement is considered material and is grounds for immediate termination of Coach’s participation in the Program without notice.
11. Good Faith.
Coach and Client represent and warrant to the other that such party has acted in good faith, and agrees to continue to so act, in the negotiation, execution, delivery, performance, and any termination of this Agreement.
12. Personal Responsibility & Assumption of Risk.
Client acknowledges that Client takes full responsibility for all decisions made before, during and after the Program and knowingly assumes all of the risks of the Program, whether known or unknown, related to Client’s use, misuse, or non-use of the Program or any of the Program materials. Client accepts and agrees that there are many factors that contribute to the success of the Client which are outside of Coach’s control; therefore, Client accepts and agrees that Client is 100% responsible for Client's progress and results from the Program, and Coach makes no guarantees as to the outcome of the Program.
Coach expects that Client is entering the Brand Your Passions program with existing experience and passions needed to create programs suited for the coaching industry. By enrolling in the Brand Your Passions program, Client also understands that said program is not intended to turn Client into a coach, nor does it equip Client with the expertise needed to create coaching results for their future clients. This program is a business training program, only suitable for experts, coaches, and individuals who already possess the ability to create amazing results for people and have gained their skills, passions, and expertise from real life experience, work experience, or education.
Client is aware that Coach is not a physician or licensed medical provider and therefore does not diagnose, treat, prevent or cure any disease, and therefore is not a replacement for Client’s medical doctor, therapist or physician. Client acknowledges that Coach is not a medical provider, psychotherapist, employment agent, business manager, or financial analyst. If Client is presently under any form of psychiatric care, psychotherapy, specialized medical supervision or under the influence of any form of medication, Client is to inform Coach prior to working together. Client understands that while Coach has used care in preparing the information provided to Client, the Program and Program materials are being provided as self-help tools for Client’s own use and for informational and educational purposes only. Client agrees that Coach is not responsible for Client’s physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health, for financial earnings or losses, or for any other result or outcome that Client may experience through the Program. Nothing related to this Program is intended to be considered medical, mental health, legal, financial, or religious advice in any way. For specific questions related to a medical or mental health situation, consult Your own medical or mental health professional. For specific questions related to Your financial, legal or tax situation, consult Your own attorney, accountant, and/or financial advisor. For specific questions related to religion, spirituality, or faith, consult Your own clergy member or spiritual healer. Do not start or stop taking any medications because of anything You have read or received through this Program.
14. No Warranty.
COACH MAKES NO WARRANTY THAT THE SERVICES WILL MEET CLIENT’S PRE-CONCEIVED EXPECTATIONS OR THAT ALL CLIENTS WILL ACHIEVE THE SAME OR SIMILAR RESULTS. THE PROGRAM IS PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS” BASIS WITHOUT WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED. COACH DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, ARISING BY LAW OR OTHERWISE, WITH RESPECT TO THE PROGRAM THROUGH OR ON BEHALF OF COACH UNDER THIS AGREEMENT, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR NONINFRINGEMENT AND ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY ARISING FROM COURSE OF PERFORMANCE, COURSE OF DEALING OR USAGE OF TRADE.
15. Limitation of Liability.
Client accepts all risks, foreseeable or non-foreseeable, arising from such transactions and client's use of the Program. In no event will the aggregate liability of Coach with regard to this Agreement, the Program exceed the compensation paid by Client to Coach under this Agreement. Coach shall not be liable for any indirect, consequential, special or exemplary damages (including, without limitation, damages for any loss of profit, revenue, data, business or use) even if such party has been advised of the possibility of such damages. Client agrees that Coach's employees, affiliates, representatives, successors and assigns shall not be liable for any acts or omissions of Coach.
Client shall defend, indemnify, and hold harmless Coach and its employees, affiliates, agents, representatives, successors and assigns from and against any and all liabilities and expense whatsoever, including without limitation, claims, damages, losses, judgments, awards, settlements, investigations, costs, attorney’s fees, disbursements and any other liabilities which any of them may incur or become obligated to pay arising out of or resulting from the offering for sale, the sale, and/or use of the Program.
Should Client wish to terminate this Agreement, Client is to notify Coach by sending an e-mail to Dora Carpenter at email@example.com. In the event that Client is in arrears of payment or otherwise in default of any of the terms of this Agreement, or chooses to voluntarily terminate this Agreement, all payments due hereunder for the Program shall be immediately due and payable. Coach shall be allowed to immediately collect all such sums from Client and, at Coach's discretion, immediately terminate Client’s access to the Program and Program materials. In addition, Coach may, at any time and without cause, terminate this Agreement, at which time any payment for services rendered by Coach to Client shall immediately become due and payable.

As a part of the legal process, of course, Client is not prohibited from publicly sharing Client’s thoughts and opinions.

None of the provisions of this Agreement shall be deemed to have been waived by any act or acquiescence by either party, its agents, or employees, but only by an instrument in writing signed by Coach or Client.
