Terms and Conditions of Use
The Clutch™ and KL Coaching, Inc. Programs
Please read these Terms and Conditions of Use carefully. By visiting and using The Clutch™ website (the “Website”), by becoming a member of The Clutch™, or by participating in any live or online event, training, one-on-one or group coaching, class, workshop, program, or social media group, or using any digital or downloadable resources (collectively, the “Program”) offered or hosted by KL Coaching, Inc. (the “Company”) or a third party on behalf of the Company, you agree that you have read, understood, and agree to the following Terms and Conditions of Use (these “Terms”).
If you do not agree with these Terms, you may not use the Website or participate in the Program.
MEMBERSHIP: You are only eligible to join The Clutch™ as a member if you are at least 18 years old and currently identify as a woman or you were raised and socialized as a woman. Some of the content in the Program may not be appropriate for children. The Company hereby disclaims all liability for use by individuals under the age of 18.
Members of The Clutch™ receive certain benefits, including the ability to: (i) join a social media group exclusively for members; (ii) purchase tickets for live events offered by the Company; and (iii) anonymously submit “Ask the Coach” questions, responses to which will be publicly posted in the members’ social media group. The Company reserves the right to add to, modify or discontinue any or all of these benefits at any time with or without notice.
PAYMENTS, CANCELLATIONS AND REFUNDS: You agree to pay the fees listed on the checkout page for the Program you have selected. Recurring monthly payments will be charged to your card on the same calendar day each month (if, for example, you join on April 12, your card will be charged again on May 12, June 12, and so on); recurring annual payments will be charged to your card on the same day, each year after you join (if, for example, you join on April 28, 2019, your card would be charged April 28, 2020 and so on).
You may cancel your membership in The Clutch™ at any time at least two (2) business days before the next billing date. After giving notice of cancellation, you will be immediately removed from all social media groups, but may access materials provided on the Website until the end of the current billing cycle, subject to these Terms.
If paying by debit card or credit card, you give the Company permission to automatically charge your credit or debit card for all fees and charges due and payable to the Company, without any additional authorization, for which you will receive an electronic receipt. You also agree that the Company is authorized to share any payment information and instructions required to complete the payment transactions with its third-party payment service providers (e.g., credit card transaction processing, merchant settlement, and related services).
Payment in full is required before you will be permitted to participate in any Program. If you fail to make payment in a timely manner or voluntarily decide to withdraw from any Program at any time or for any reason, you will remain responsible for the full cost of all payments in any payment plan you choose.
The Company reserves the right to charge a late fee on all balances more than 30 days overdue. You agree to reimburse the Company for all collection and/or legal fees and expenses necessitated by lateness or default in payment.
The Company reserves the right to adjust the fees for the Program and payment terms, and will give advance notice to you of any changes by email.
In the event that payment is not received by the date due, you will have a five (5) day grace period to make the payment, otherwise we reserve the right to terminate your access to the Program immediately and permanently.
Unless otherwise provided by law, all purchases for goods or services of any kind are final and non-refundable. Since the Company has a clear and explicit Refund Policy that you have agreed to prior to completing your purchase, the Company does not tolerate or accept any type of chargeback threat or actual chargeback from your credit card company or payment processor. In the event that a chargeback is placed on a purchase, or we receive a chargeback threat during or after your purchase, we reserve the right to report the incident to all three credit reporting agencies or to any other entity for inclusion in any chargeback database or for listing as a delinquent account which could have a negative impact on your credit report score. The information reported will include your name, email address, order date, order amount, and billing address. Chargeback abusers wishing to be removed from the database shall make the payment for the amount of the chargeback.

If you choose to use the Content in ways that the Company does not specifically give you written permission, you agree now that you will be treated as if you had copied, duplicated and/or stolen such Content from us, and you consent to immediately stop using such Content and to take whatever actions as we may request and by the methods and in the time frame that we prescribe to protect our intellectual property and ownership rights in the Program and Content.
YOUR CONDUCT, CONFIDENTIALITY:
Please choose carefully the materials that you upload to, submit to, or share on the Website or during any video or telephone call operated by the Company and any third-party forums operated by the Company. Any material you post or share on the Website, during any video or telephone call, or in any third-party forums operated by the Company may inadvertently become public.
Your relationship with the Company is not legally bound by confidentiality. You acknowledge that our communications are not covered by a doctor-patient, attorney-client, or any other privilege. The Company is not legally bound to keep your information confidential.
You acknowledge that there is an inherent risk in all forms of electronic communication, and communications between you and the Company may be unlawfully intercepted by third parties not under our control. The Company does not guarantee the security of any information transmitted via the Internet, telephone, video conference, or other electronic media. Any efforts you undertake to communicate with Company are done at your own risk.
Nevertheless, the Company agrees to take reasonable steps keep all information about its relationship with you private within the Website, in video or telephone calls, or in any third-party forums operated by the Company, except in very rare circumstances where disclosure is required by law, for example when a court might issue a subpoena for the file or information, or if you threaten to harm yourself or others. You may authorize the Company to disclose your information to a third party by doing so in writing.
The Company may record coaching calls and share them on the Website, in the Program, or on third-party forums operated by the Company.
You agree you will not share any recorded coaching calls or third-party forum postings outside the private member areas of the Website or any third-party forums operated by the Company. If the Company discovers you have done so, this will be grounds for immediate termination of your access to the Program and Content.
You are responsible for your material and for any liability that may result from it. You participate, comment, post, and disclose your material at your own risk. Any communication by you on the Website or via a social media group, chat room, message board, public forum, chat bot, contact submission form or other interactive service, must be respectful. You may not communicate or submit any content or material that is abusive, vulgar, threatening, harassing, knowingly false, defamatory or obscene or otherwise in violation of any law or the rights of others. You agree to post comments or other material only one time.
The Company, in its discretion, may delete or modify, in whole or part, any post, comment or submission to the Website or any Company social media group. The Company does not, however, have any obligation to monitor posts, comments, or material submitted by third parties. The Company neither endorses nor makes any representations as to the truthfulness or validity of any third-party posts, comments, or material on the Website.

The Company may, without notice or refund, refuse or discontinue access to the Website or any Activity to any person who fails to comply with these Terms.
TERMINATION: The Company reserves the right in its sole discretion to refuse or terminate your access to the Program and Content, in full or in part, at any time without notice. In the event of cancellation or termination, you are no longer authorized to access the part of the Program or Content affected by such cancellation or termination. The restrictions imposed on you in these Terms with respect to the Program and its Content will still apply now and in the future, even after termination by you or the Company.
NO PITCHING, SELLING OR PROMOTING OTHER PRODUCTS, GROUPS, PROGRAMS, OR EVENTS TO OTHER MEMBERS: The Program is a “pitch free zone.” You agree you will not pitch, promote, market, or sell any other products, groups, programs, or events to other members on the Website or any social media group or platform for members, whether or not officially sanctioned, owned, or operated by the Company.

You agree not to invite other members to participate in events, such as a race, seminar, or athletic competition, without first receiving approval from the Company. You agree not to market, promote, or sell products or services such as nutritional supplements, coaching services, or other products or services, to other members, unless you are authorized or requested to do so by the Company.
