PAYMENTS AND REFUNDS FOR MEMBERSHIP SUBSCRIPTIONS

Our money-back guarantees are limited to problems you have with the actual product. For example, if you start using or accessing the content of the program you have subscribed to and don’t like it, or it is something different to what you were expecting then, if you are within the money-back guarantee period, we will happily refund your money.

We will not refund your money however if you have just changed your mind about purchasing the item or your circumstances have changed. We strictly enforce our policy.

To obtain a refund, you must contact us in writing within the money-back guarantee and tell us what the problem is. For example, if you purchase a product on 4 June and it has a 30 day money back guarantee period, you must contact us in writing on or before 4 July setting out your reasons in order to use the money-back guarantee. If you contact us on 5 July or fail to tell us what the problem is, it will be too late.

SOCIAL MEDIA RULES OF ENGAGEMENT

Our goal is for people to feel safe and included when using our social media platforms. We have a varied community that includes riders and users from multiple countries, those that are just starting out, riders competing at FEI level and everyone in between. Riders of all levels are welcome here.

If you use any of our social media platforms, you agree, as a condition of use, to:

  • Not to post or distribute any inappropriate, profane, defamatory, infringing, obscene, indecent or unlawful topic, whether included in your username or in any material or information.
  • Not to post inappropriately negative, rude or attacking comments. Don’t be a jerk or make others feel they are not valued.
  • Keep your posts on topic.
  • Not use ‘pitching’ or lead generation. We have a strict ‘no shopping for customers policy’. This means you may not sell products or services, direct users to blogs, websites or affiliate products or ask members to join other Facebook groups or communities. This applies both as direct posts and private messages. Please view the group as your peers, not your leads.
  • If you need a feed-back or review, you will post the direct PDF, document or screenshot. You may not require users to opt-in to be able to view your content.
  • You will respect the privacy of others. Content gathered from our social media platforms cannot be collected, repackaged or shared outside the group. Every member of our communities has the right to privacy and to feel safe that their questions, answers and shared experiences remain privy to group members only. This includes information shared by Natasha Althoff.

We do not endorse any products or services of third parties.

If you partner with another member of our community, we are not responsible for their actions. Do not assume that everyone is trustworthy, make sure you do your own due diligence.

As our communities are large, if you see posts you believe are questionable, please report them to us by email at members@yourridingsuccess.com or you can reach out to our community manager directly by private message. We may at our discretion moderate our social media platforms, however we are not obliged to do so.

If we find users breaking our rules and we consider the offence to be serious, we reserve the right to permanently exclude them from our community, including immediately terminating any paid membership they hold. We may also contact the authorities and share the posted content and corresponding user personal information with the authorities if we are concerned about the safety of any person or threat to our business.

If we consider the rule breaches to be less serious, we will:

  • Provide a warning that a user has breached the rules.
  • If a user receives 3 warnings (for the same or different breaches), they will receive a 7 day suspension from access to the group.
  • After the 7 day suspension, the user may re-join the group on a 30 day probation period.
  • If a further breach of the rules happens during the probation period, the user will be permanently removed from our community, including immediately terminating any paid membership they hold.

While me may enforce this policy against a user, we are not obliged to do so.
