Terms and Conditions of Use
Please read these Terms and Conditions (“T&C”) carefully. You must agree to these T&C before you purchase any Lavender’s Blue Homeschool curriculum, workbook, or other materials, or participate in any Lavender’s Blue Homeschool individual or group coaching session, workshop, or training, or enter any online private forums operated by Lavender’s Blue Homeschool (for any purpose), whether on a website hosted by Lavender’s Blue Homeschool or a third-party website or platform such as Thinkific, Mighty Networks, or a workshop/webinar or videoconferencing platform (collectively “the Program”).
If you do not agree with these T&C, you may not purchase or participate in the Program.
As used in these T&C, the term “Releasees” is defined to include the following: (i) Lavender’s Blue Homeschool, its subsidiaries, affiliated companies, owners, members, managers, directors, officers, past and present employees and independent contractors, agents, coaches, representatives, successors and assigns (collectively “LBH” or “Us”); (ii) any LBH volunteers; and (iii) Kelly Ehrman.
Payment and Refund Terms
You agree to pay the Program price you select at checkout. If paying by debit card or credit card, you give Us permission to automatically charge your credit or debit card for all fees and charges due and payable to LBH, without any additional authorization, for which you will receive an electronic receipt. If you purchase membership in any aspect of the Program that requires periodic payments, you give Us permission to automatically charge your credit or debit card for all fees and charges due and payable to LBH on the periodic dates, without any additional authorization, for which you will receive an electronic receipt. You also agree that LBH 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).
In the event that payment is not received by the date due, you will have a three (3) day grace period to make the payment otherwise the Program will not continue and we reserve the right to terminate your access to the Program and all Content immediately and permanently.
If you fail to make payment in a timely manner in accordance with these T&C or voluntarily withdraw from the Program at any time or for any reason, you will remain fully responsible for the full cost of the Program.
Unless otherwise provided by law, you acknowledge that LBH does not offer refunds for any portion of your payment for any session or materials purchased through our Program and no refunds will be provided to you at any time. By participating in our Program, you understand and agree that all sales are final and no refunds will be provided.
Since LBH has a clear and explicit Refund Policy in these T&C that you have agreed to prior to participating in the Program, LBH 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 payment or we receive a chargeback threat during or after your payment, LBH reserves 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.

The curriculum, homework, resources, practice questions, words, design, layout, graphics, photos, images, information, materials, documents, data, databases and all other information and intellectual property accessible on or through the LBH website, any third-party website LBH may use to distribute or host the Program, and contained in e-mails sent to you by LBH (“the Content”) is property of LBH and/or its affiliates or licensors, unless otherwise noted, and it is protected by copyright, trademark, and other intellectual property laws.

You may not republish, reproduce, duplicate, copy, sell, display, distribute to friends or family, or otherwise use any material from the Program or Content for commercial purposes or in any way that earns you money (other than by applying them generally for your own personal use).
You may not sell or give away any portion of this program to friends, relatives, or on any homeschool forum, Facebook group, curriculum swap, or curriculum resell/resale forum. Your license is for your immediate family only.
By downloading, printing, or otherwise using any Content for personal use you in no way assume any ownership rights of the Content – it is still LBH property. Any reproduction or unauthorized use of any materials found in the Program or Content shall constitute infringement.

Personal Responsibility, Assumption of Risk, Disclaimers, and Indemnification
Some elements of the Program involve physical movement and use of equipment that may be dangerous, such as power tools. You understand that physical activity and exercise are inherently risky and dangerous activities. Inherent risks are risks that cannot be eliminated completely regardless of the care and precautions taken by Releasees.
You accept personal responsibility for your and your children’s participation in the Program, and release, covenant not to sue, and hold Releasees harmless for any and all liability to you or any third party for any and all claims, causes of action, obligations, lawsuits, charges, complaints, controversies, damages, costs or expenses of whatsoever kind, nature, or description, whether direct or indirect, in law or in equity, in contract or in tort, or otherwise, whether known or unknown, arising out of or connected with your and your children’s participation in the Program, whether or not caused by the active or passive negligence of the Releasees.
In the event that the release and hold harmless provision is held unenforceable for any reason, you agree to limit any damages claimed to the total amount paid to LBH for the Program.
The Program and Content provide information and education only, and do not provide any medical or psychological services or advice. None of the Program or Content prevents, cures or treats any mental or medical condition. The Program and Content is not intended to be a substitute for professional advice that can be provided by your own medical or educational professional. You are responsible for your own and your children’s physical, mental and emotional well-being, decisions, choices, actions and results. You should consult with a professional if you have specific questions about your own unique situation. LBH expressly disclaims any liability for your reliance on any opinions or advice contained in the Program.
LBH cannot and does not guarantee any particular academic or educational outcome from its Program, including but not limited to its Content, Coaching Sessions, or Community Forums. Testimonials and past results of others do not predict or guarantee future results.
LBH tries to ensure that the availability and delivery of the Program and Content is uninterrupted and error-free. However, LBH cannot guarantee that your access will not be suspended or restricted from time to time, including to allow for repairs, maintenance or updates, although, of course, we will try to limit the frequency and duration of suspension or restriction.
