Terms and Conditions

PLEASE READ THESE TERMS OF USE CAREFULLY BEFORE USING THE SERVICE OR SITE AS THEY CONTAIN IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING LEGAL RIGHTS, REMEDIES AND OBLIGATIONS. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO ALL OF THESE TERMS OF USE, DO NOT USE THE SERVICE OR SITE IN ANY MANNER. ALL SALES ARE FINAL: We do NOT offer refunds for members failing to cancel their membership at their desired point of termination. It is the users responsibility to maintain their PayPal subscription, and we do not have the ability to intervene and make cancellations on a member’s behalf. This is an automatically renewing service, so if you no longer wish to make use of this service we recommend you set yourself a reminder to cancel your membership before unwanted charges are made. TERMS OF USE Thericklessons.com provides the platform to facilitate distance learning between music professionals and teachers, on the one hand, and music students, on the other hand in a subscription-funded online institute. By accessing and using the thericklessons.com website, other Company web sites and web sites of music professionals or teachers who utilize www.thericklessons.com’s services and/or the mobile versions thereof (collectively, the “Site” or “Service”) you agree to be and are bound by the Company’s Terms of Use (“Terms of Use” or “Agreement”) as described herein; provided that in certain instances these Terms of Use may be modified by specific written agreement signed by both you and the Company. The Company’s Privacy Policy, Copyright Policy, and any other policies that may be posted on the Site from time to time, are incorporated by reference into these Terms of Use and are applicable to your use of the Service. By using this Site and/or Service, you understand and agree to be bound by the Terms of Use whether or not you are a registered member of Company, the Service or Site. The Company may modify these Terms of Use from time to time without notice, and such modification shall be effective upon posting on the Site.

It is important that you review the Terms of Use regularly. TERM, MEMBERSHIP, AND RENEWAL FEES This Agreement, including all revisions, shall remain in full force and effect while, and each and every time, you use the Service and/or Site. Either party may terminate this Agreement at anytime with or without cause. You may terminate this Agreement at anytime by simply going to your PayPal account and following the termination instructions under Subscriptions. While you use the Site, then these Terms of Use shall remain applicable. Membership to this site is based on a 1, 3, or 12 month automatically renewing cycle. The current fees are $24.99 per month for the Monthly Membership and $255 for Annual Membership. Your credit card will be charged on the 1st day of each recurring membership cycle unless you cancel your subscription by going to your PayPal account and selecting “My Profile” then “My Money” then “My Pre-Approved Payments”. You must maintain an active PayPal payment profile to have access to the site. If you cancel your PayPal profile at any time, your thericklessons.com profile will be terminated and you will no longer have access to your account, regardless of where this point falls in your billing cycle. ”Trial” and “Special” offers fall under the same membership rules as the aforementioned standard membership levels, and their pricing is clearly advertised on the sales page as and when they’re offered, and the PayPal checkout page. If your payment skips for any reason – out of date credit card or insufficient funds for instance – your account will automatically be made inactive. PayPal will then try your account 5 days later to draw the funds, and if this skips the account will remain inactive. PayPal will try one last time 5 days after that, and if the funds are still unavailable your account will be cancelled automatically. PERSONAL INFORMATION
