This is important - Please Read
Please read these Terms of Service ("Agreement", "Terms of Service") carefully before using www.realsocialproof.com ("the Site") operated by David Shands which may also be referred to as Real Social Proof ("us", "we", or "our"). This Agreement sets forth the legally binding Terms of Service for your use of the Site at www.realsocialproof.com
By accessing or using the Site in any manner, including, but not limited to, visiting or browsing the Site or contributing content or other materials to the Site, you agree to be bound by these Terms of Service. Capitalized terms are defined in this Agreement.
These Terms, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you, but may be assigned by Real Social Proof without restriction. Any attempted transfer or assignment in violation hereof shall be null and void.
Acceptance of Terms of Service and Amendments
Our web site and services provided to you on and through our web site on an "AS IS" basis. You agree that the owners of this web site exclusively reserve the right and may, at any time and without notice and any liability to you, modify or discontinue this web site and its services or delete the data you provide, whether temporarily or permanently. We shall have no responsibility or liability for the timeliness, deletion, failure to store, inaccuracy, or improper delivery of any data or information.
Our Affiliate Disclosure
It does take time to create all this content, so we do accept paid advertising, sponsorships, affiliate programs and other forms of compensation. However, we never allow any money to impact our opinion on a subject or object. We may also give mixed or negative reviews of products sometimes and turn down propositions that don’t fit with our ideology. Moreover, we also accept private advertising from companies we are happy to endorse; you can see their images in the sidebar or in different areas of our site, and we may also include a complementary mention within a post several times per month per advertiser.
In addition, if you click on their ad or text link and buy something, we do get a little kickback. Unless we’ve reviewed the product and mentioned that they provided the product to us, none of these companies pay us in any other way.
We also participate in Amazon.com’s affiliate program. If you click on an Amazon link or photo at our site, we do get a (small) commission, as long as you complete your purchase within 24 hours. They’re very strict at Amazon!
Furthermore, if or when we run a giveaway, we usually (or may) have received a free product to review, and the company has sponsored a free product to give to one of our readers. The review is our own opinion, and although the company in question may certainly read our text (and we encourage them to), they don’t edit or approve it in any way. They also don’t compensate us for reviewing the product beyond providing us with a sample. Giveaways and reviews are kept separate for a very good reason: we do accept paid giveaways, as giveaways take a great deal of time to administrate and are a fabulous form of advertising. Basically what we are getting to is that reviews are free, between us and our readers. Giveaways are paid advertising, most of the time.
Any sponsored posts will be marked as such, but again, we won’t write a post recommending for money that we would’ve written without compensation. We also may do some sponsored tweets or other forms of social media marketing as well, but they will always include the words “brought to you by” “sponsored” or “ad”. Some of our integrated campaigns for companies include a certain number of tweets, Facebook updates, or other forms of promoting about the company, but we always strive to make those interesting, authentic content for our readers at the same time.
Your Responsibilities and Registration Obligations
In order to use this web site, you must register on our site, agree to provide truthful information when requested, and be at least the age of thirteen (13) or older. When registering, you explicitly agree to our Terms of Service and as may be modified by us from time to time and available here.
Returns and Refunds Digital Products Policy
In the event that you decide your purchase was not the right decision, contact our support team by sending a friendly email to info(at)realsocialproof.com, show us you actually did the work by completing ALL of the modules, worksheets, pdf’s, etc. We will review your work and attempt to help correct the issue. If we cannot help solve the issue, we’ll issue you a prompt FULL refund.
To be eligible for a refund, you must submit your request and completed assessments no sooner than 30 days following your purchase. After you submit your materials, all refunds are discretionary.
No refunds will be provided less than 30 days following the date of purchase. If you opted for a payment plan, all of the payments must be completed. There is no cancellation option on the payment plan. To be eligible for a refund on a payment plan, you must submit your request and completed assessments no sooner than 30 days following your 6th payment. After you submit your materials, all refunds are discretionary.
*Note: As mentioned above, all refunds are discretionary. If you just downloaded the training material (pdfs, audios, videos, and/or etc), and then promptly asked for a refund, we reserve the right to deny your refund request. We have no intention of keeping your money if you're dissatisfied, but we insist that you commit to taking action within 30 days of your purchase if you want results.
The point of this policy is to give people the chance to try Real Social Proof, and if it doesn’t work, they can get their money back. It wasn’t designed to enable people to steal the training material.
Furthermore, if it is clear that your assessments are incomplete or that you did not implement the strategies taught in the Real Social Proof, your refund will be denied. However, we will still help and support you in order to get you results.
Event Ticket Sales Refund Policy
Our events are managed by Real Social Proof. Refund requests can only be requested prior to 60 days before the event due to the overhead of the event, preparation, and other budget allocations. If you have any questions or want further details on transferring your ticket(s) which is applicable in most cases depending on the event, please email info(at)realsocialproof.com.
Real Social Proof is committed to providing all clients with a positive Program experience. By purchasing any of our digital products or services, you agree that Real Social Proof may, at its sole discretion, terminate the Agreement of digital products or services purchased, and limit, suspend, or terminate your participation in services without refund or forgiveness of full or monthly payments if you become disruptive or difficult to work with, if you fail to follow through on assignments and/or requests for information necessary for the completion of said services, or if you impair Real Social Proof or their staff in their efforts in rendering our digital products or services.
