1. Course Enrollment and Access
As a student, when you enroll in a course from The Inner Healing School, you are getting from Shelemah LLC a license to the course and Shelemah is the licensor of record. Courses are licensed, and not sold, to you. This license does not give you any right to resell the course in any manner (including by sharing account information with a purchaser or illegally copying or downloading the course and sharing it on torrent sites). In legal, more complete terms, Shelemah LLC grants you (as a student) a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable license to access and view the course and associated content for which you have paid all required fees, solely for your purposes through the services, in accordance with these terms and any conditions or restrictions associated with a particular courses or feature of our services. All other uses are expressly prohibited. You may not reproduce, redistribute, transmit, assign, sell, broadcast, rent, share, lend, modify, adapt, edit, create derivative works of, sublicense, or otherwise transfer or use any course unless we give you explicit permission to do so in a written agreement signed by a Shelemah LLC authorized representative.
You will have access to the course and online course materials for two weeks after the end date of the course. After that time you will not be able to access the course or online course materials including any posts you made in discussion board forums.
2. Payments and Refunds
You agree to pay the fees for courses that you purchase, and you authorize us to charge your debit or credit card or for those fees. Shelemah LLC works with third party payment processing partners to offer you the most convenient payment methods in your country and to keep your payment information secure.
You will not gain access to a course until your tuition has been paid. We reserve the right to disable access to any course for which we have not received adequate payments.
Courses paid for individually are fully refundable up to the first day of classes. Once the class has begun you may get an 80% refund during the first week. After the first week of class no refund will be given.
Courses paid for together at the four-course discount rate are refundable for 80% off the total tuition until the end of the first week of the first course. No refunds will be given after that first week. However you may defer your enrollment to a later course date within a year of when your full tuition payment was made.
3. Content and Behavior Rules
You may only use our course platform for lawful purposes. You are responsible for all the content that you post on our platform. You should keep the discussion board posts, short answer assignments, papers, and all other coursework in line with proper client confidentiality, the law, and respect the intellectual property rights of others. You shall also keep the information shared in the course by other students confidential.

The services enable you to ask questions to the instructor of courses you are enrolled in, and engage with other students in the course. On homework, weekly assignments, papers, discussion boards, or any other assignment in the course, do not post or submit anything that is not yours. Plagiarism is grounds for immediate expulsion from the course.In which case no refunds will be given and you may be ineligible to enroll in any future courses.
If we are put on notice that your content violates the law or the rights of others (for example: disclosing information about a client that would make them recognizable such as their name or other identifying characteristics), or if we believe your content or behavior is unlawful, inappropriate, or objectionable (for example if you impersonate someone else), you may be immediately removed from the course without notice, and expelled after further investigation. In which case no refunds will be given and you may be ineligible to enroll in any future courses.
Shelemah LLC has discretion in enforcing these Terms. We may remove your access to the course or expel you at any time, with or without notice, for any violation of these Terms, if you fail to pay any fees when due, upon the request of law enforcement or government agencies, or if we suspect that you engage in fraudulent or illegal activities. Upon any such expulsion we may delete your account and content, and we may prevent you from further access to the platforms and use of our services. Your content may still be available on the platforms even if your account is terminated or suspended.

7.1 Binding Agreement
You agree that by registering, accessing or using our Services, you are agreeing to enter into a legally binding contract with Shelemah LLC. If you do not agree to these Terms, do not register, access, or otherwise use any of our Services.
These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and us. If any part of these Terms is found to be invalid or unenforceable by applicable law, then that provision will be deemed superseded by a valid, enforceable provision that most closely matches the intent of the original provision and the remainder of these Terms will continue in effect.
Even if we are delayed in exercising our rights or fail to exercise a right in one case, it doesn’t mean we waive our rights under these Terms, and we may decide to enforce them in the future. If we decide to waive any of our rights in a particular instance, it doesn’t mean we waive our rights generally or in the future.
It may happen that our platform is down, either for planned maintenance or because something goes down with the site. It may also happen that we encounter security issues. These are just examples. You accept that you will not have any recourse against us in any of these types of cases where things don’t work out right. In legal, more complete language, the Services and their content are provided on an “as is” and “as available” basis.
We (and our affiliates, suppliers, partners, and agents) make no representations or warranties about the suitability, reliability, availability, timeliness, security, lack of errors, or accuracy of the Services or their content, and expressly disclaim any warranties or conditions (express or implied), including implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, title, and non-infringement. We (and our affiliates, suppliers, partners, and agents) make no warranty that you will obtain specific results from use of the Services. Your use of the Services (including any content) is entirely at your own risk. Some jurisdictions don’t allow the exclusion of implied warranties, so some of the above exclusions may not apply to you.

7.3 Limitation of Liability

In legal, more complete language, to the extent permitted by law, we (and our group companies, suppliers, partners, and agents) will not be liable for any indirect, incidental, punitive, or consequential damages (including loss of data, revenue, profits, or business opportunities, or personal injury or death), whether arising in contract, warranty, tort, product liability, or otherwise, and even if we’ve been advised of the possibility of damages in advance.
Our liability to you or any third parties under any circumstance is limited to the greater of one hundred dollars ($100) or the amount you have paid us in the twelve (12) months before the event giving rise to your claims. Some jurisdictions don’t allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, so some of the above may not apply to you.
If you behave in a way that gets us in legal trouble, we may exercise legal recourse against you. You agree to indemnify, defend (if we so request), and hold harmless Shelemah LLC, from and against any third-party claims, demands, losses, damages, or expenses (including reasonable attorney fees) arising from (a) the content you post or submit, (b) your use of the Services (c) your violation of these Terms, or (d) your violation of any rights of a third party.
