The Company agrees to provide you with access to the Program, “The Joy Prescription Community Membership” (“Program”). As a condition of participating in the Program, you agree to be bound by and to abide by all policies and procedures set out in this Agreement, including those incorporated by reference.
This Program is for informational and educational purposes only. The information contained in the Program, including any interactions with the instructors, is not intended as, and shall not be understood or construed as, professional advice. It is not medical advice, nor is it intended to create nor does it create a doctor-patient relationship. It is not a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis, treatment or cure. Always seek the advice of your own physician or other qualified health provider who knows your specific situation. Never disregard personalized, professional medical advice or delay in seeking it because of something you experience or learn on these Calls.
Company does not assume any liability for the information contained or referenced within this Program and makes no warranties, nor express or implied representations whatsoever regarding the accuracy, completeness, timeliness, or usefulness of any information contained or referenced in the Program.
Health-related information contained in this Program may change frequently and, therefore, the information contained in prior Calls may be outdated, incomplete or incorrect.
Nature of The Relationship
Nothing in this Agreement shall be construed to create a partnership, joint venture, employment, or agency relationship. The Company is agreeing only to provide Client with access to the Program, which provides education and information.
In consideration of Your access to the Program, you agree to pay the following fees.
You may choose between monthly payments of $19 or annual payments of $149(which results in savings of 35% per year), with the first payment due immediately. If you opt for monthly payments, you shall be automatically charged $19 every month thereafter until you cancel your subscription to the Program according to the Program’s Cancellation Policy set forth below. If you opt for annual payments, you shall be automatically charged $149 every year thereafter until you cancel your subscription to the Program according to the Program’s Cancellation Policy set forth below.
Payment Plan Authorization
You hereby authorize the Company to charge your credit card or debit card automatically according to the terms set forth in the Fees section above.
The Program is offered on an ongoing basis with a monthly or yearly subscription. You may cancel subscriptions at any time by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your subscription cancellation notice is effective upon the first day of the next monthly billing period, and you will continue to have access to the Program for the current monthly billing period. Monthly fees are paid in advance and are non-refundable. We do not provide partial refunds for portions of a month, even if you give notice of cancelation in the middle of a month. For example, if you sign up and pay for a subscription on 4/15, you will have access until 5/15 when you will be billed again unless you have canceled. As such, if you cancel on 5/16, you will not be charged again but will have access for that entire period you paid for. If you cancel on 6/16, you would have been charged the day before, but again will have access until 7/15. No refunds are available in these or any other situation. Yearly fees are paid in advance and are nonrefundable. We do not provide partial refunds for portions of unused months, even if you give notice of cancelation in the middle of a year. As such, you will not be charged again but will have access for the entire period you paid for (the remaining months within your prepaid annual term). No refunds are available in these or any other situation.
All sales are final, and the Company does not offer any money-back guarantees. You recognize and agree that you shall not be entitled to a refund for any purchase under any circumstances.
As part of the Program, the Company shall provide the following to the Client.
Access To Program Area – The Company shall maintain a Program Area that may include videos, lessons, forms, worksheets, checklists, and other information. You shall have access to this Program Area as long as you are a member.
Access To Private Discussion Group – The Company shall maintain a Private Group that You will have access to as a member of the Program. That Group provides a forum for You to connect with other Program participants and to seek guidance and support. Members of the Company will seek to interact with Program participants in the group, but the Company does not make any guarantees about participation by any of its employees, founders, or members in the Group. You are required to abide by any and all rules posted in that Group. If you fail to abide by those rules, you will forfeit your right to participate in that Group. In the event you lose your right to participate in the Group as a result of rules violation, you shall not receive a refund.
Q&A Calls/Sessions – As a member of the Program, you will have access to monthly group question and answer Calls.

Participation in any group activity, exercise, or discussion is at all times, up to each individual group member. However, how much you gain from your time in the group will depend upon your willingness to give of yourself and take some risks in the group. Some areas that might require extra effort and commitment are: willingness to honestly share your thoughts and feelings; listening earnestly and thoughtfully to others; demonstrating openness to feedback from others; keeping what is said and done in the group confidential.
Specifically, you shall not share any information provided by other Program participants outside of the bounds of the Program unless you receive express written permission from such other participants to share the information. Similarly, the content of the Program contains the Company’s proprietary methods, processes, forms, templates, and other information.

You agree that the Company has not made any guarantees about the results of taking any action, whether recommended in the Program or not. The Company provides educational and informational resources that are intended to help participants in the Program succeed. You nevertheless recognize that your ultimate success or failure will be the result of your own efforts, your particular situation, and innumerable other circumstances beyond the control and/or knowledge of the Company.
You also recognize that prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome. Thus, the results obtained by others – whether clients of the Company or otherwise – applying the principles included in the Program are no guarantee that you or any other person or entity will be able to obtain similar results.
You agree to take full responsibility for any harm or damage you suffer as a result of the use, or non-use, of the information available in the Program. You agree to use judgment and conduct due diligence before taking any actions or implementing any plans or policy suggested or recommended in the Program.
