Last updated July 12, 2018
Firmsconsulting LLC. welcomes you. We invite you to access and use our Websites.
These terms apply, without any restrictions both applied or assumed, to all interaction, electronic or otherwise and through any communication medium, with Firmsconsulting.
Any user who registers with us (each, a “Registered User”) and wishes to lease a product or service through one of our Websites, is agreeing to the terms of this Agreement and the accompanying Terms and Conditions of Purchase with respect to such product or service.
The sections below titled “binding arbitration” and “class action waiver” contain a binding arbitration agreement and class action waiver. They affect your legal rights.
1 DESCRIPTION AND USE OF OUR WEBSITES
We provide Visitors and Registered Users with access to the Services and Products as described below.
Visitors. Visitors, as the term implies, are people who do not register with us, but want to explore the Websites. No login is required for Visitors. Visitors can:
- view all publicly-available content on the Websites; and
- email us, and
- Download our Apps
Registered Users. Registered Users can do all the things that Visitors can do, and:
- lease products and services through one of our Websites;
- access exclusive content available only to Registered Users;
- create, access, manage, and update their own personal accounts on the Websites;
- post comments and other content on the Websites (collectively, “Registered User Content”);

1.1 USE OF OUR CONTENT
Firmsconsulting is only a subscription service and does not sell any content on our digital properties. We do not transfer ownership to you for any services, products or content in any form or manner whatsoever.
You may not either directly or through the use of any device, software, internet site, web-based service, or other means copy, download (other than through caching in our Apps necessary for personal use), stream capture, reproduce, duplicate, archive, distribute, upload, publish, modify, translate, broadcast, perform, display, sell, transmit or re-transmit the content unless expressly permitted by Firmsconsulting in writing.
Users who download or attempt to download material, share passwords to their accounts or our breach terms and conditions in any other way will have their accounts suspended or terminated without any financial recourse. Once an account is suspended a user cannot rejoin the site and there is no “cooling off” period. A suspended user must cancel their account to prevent future billing.
As Firmsconsulting Inc. is a Canadian company we have to also obey all current and forthcoming Canadian laws where applicable. The 2015 Digital Privacy Act includes the requirement to immediately report any system breach on any of our digital assets from anywhere in the world, what information/data/content was lost or stolen, how the attacker gained access, and if we have the information, who was the attacker. The information must be reported to the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada as soon as we become aware of the breach, which in our case will be as soon as it happens due to our tracking software, who will, in turn, decide whether it needs to be released publicly and/or shared with local and international law enforcement. At the same time we disable all violating accounts. Digital breaches include attempting to download content from our sites (unless specifically allowed caching into our Apps) or any unapproved modifications to our digital assets. Please note it is not at our discretion whether or not we can share this information to the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada. As required by law, we must submit the information immediately.
1.2 TRADEMARK RIGHTS
Firmsconsulting(R) is a registered trademark. The names, trademarks, service marks, and logos of Firmsconsulting belong exclusively to Firmsconsulting and are protected from reproduction, imitation, dilution or confusing or misleading uses under national and international trademark and copyright laws. All other trademarks, service marks, and logos (including third-party product names) are the property of their respective owners. The use or misuse of these trademarks is expressly prohibited and nothing stated or implied on these Sites confers on you any license or right under any patent or trademark of Firmsconsulting or any third party.
1.3 COMPETITOR ACCESS
We expressly forbid competitors and/or organizations, individuals or any other legal or unincorporated entities in the exploratory stages of forming a competitor from accessing any of our content. Firmsconsulting will disable all such accounts without any financial recourse to the competitors and/or organizations, individuals or any other legal or unincorporated entities in the exploratory stages of forming a competitor.
2 COMMUNITY GUIDELINES
The Firmsconsulting community, like any community, functions best when its users follow a few simple rules. By accessing and/or using the Websites, you agree to comply with these community guidelines (the “Community Guidelines”) and that:
- You will comply with all applicable laws in your use of the Websites and will not use the Websites for any unlawful purpose;
- You will not upload, post, email, transmit, or otherwise make available any content that:
- infringes any copyright, trademark, right of publicity, or other proprietary rights of any person or entity; or
- is defamatory, libelous, indecent, obscene, pornographic, sexually explicit, invasive of another’s privacy, promotes violence, or contains hate speech (i.e., speech that attacks or demeans a group based on race or ethnic origin, religion, disability, gender, age, veteran status, and/or sexual orientation/gender identity); or
- discloses any sensitive information about another person, including that person’s email address, postal address, phone number, credit card information, or any similar information.
- You will not “stalk,” threaten, or otherwise harass another person;
- You will not spam or use the Websites to engage in any commercial activities;
- If you post any Registered User Content, you will stay on topic;
- You will not access or use the Websites to collect any market research for a competing business;
- You will not impersonate any person or entity or falsely state or otherwise misrepresent your affiliation with a person or entity;
- You will not interfere with or attempt to interrupt the proper operation of the Websites through the use of any virus, device, information collection or transmission mechanism, software or routine, or access or attempt to gain access to any data, files, or passwords related to the Websites through hacking, password or data mining, or any other means;
- You will not cover, obscure, block, or in any way interfere with any advertisements and/or safety features (e.g., report abuse button) on the Websites;
- You will not use any robot, spider, scraper, or other automated means to access the Websites for any purpose without our express written permission; provided, however, we grant the operators of public search engines permission to use spiders to copy materials from the public portions of the Websites for the sole purpose of and solely to the extent necessary for creating publicly-available searchable indices of the materials, but not caches or archives of such materials;
- You will not take any action that imposes or may impose (in our sole discretion) an unreasonable or disproportionately large load on our technical infrastructure; and
- You will let us know about inappropriate content of which you become aware. If you find something that violates our Community Guidelines, please let us know, and we’ll review it.
- We reserve the right, in our sole and absolute discretion, to deny you access to the Websites, or any portion of the Websites, without notice, and to remove any content that does not adhere to these Community Guidelines.
The Websites are only available for individuals aged 13 years or older. If you are 13 or older, but under the age of majority in your jurisdiction, you should review this Agreement with your parent or guardian to make sure that you and your parent or guardian understand it.
4 SIGN-IN NAME; PASSWORD; UNIQUE IDENTIFIERS
During the registration process for Registered Users, we will ask you to create an account, which includes a username name (“Username Name”), a password (“Password”), and additional information that will assist in authenticating your identity when you log-in in the future (“Unique Identifiers”).
Certain information you provide when creating an account will be made available to the public. This may include you your username, name, location and bio.
When creating your account, you must provide true, accurate, current, and complete information. Each Username Name and corresponding Password can be used by only one Registered User, and sharing your access credentials with others (especially if they are using your credentials to access our proprietary Content (as defined below)) is a material breach of this Agreement.
You are solely responsible for the confidentiality and use of your Username Name, Password, and Unique Identifiers, as well as for any use, misuse, or communications entered through the Websites using one or more of them. You will promptly inform us of any need to deactivate a Password or Username Name, or change any Unique Identifier. We reserve the right to delete or change your Password, Username Name, or Unique Identifier at any time and for any reason and shall have no liability to you for any loss or damage caused by such action. Firmsconsulting will not be liable for any loss or damage caused by any unauthorized use of your account.
5 FEES AND PAYMENT
Non-Subscription billing. You may be required to make a payment for a non-subscription service such as our 1-on-1 coaching and/or books. You will be required to complete the payment manually of your own free will. We do not verbally accept credit card and/or banking details to process transactions on behalf of clients. Through the act of completing any and all payment/s to us you acknowledge acceptance of these terms. If you do not accept these terms please do not complete the payment. When you complete a payment we do not have access to your banking details since they are managed by 3rd party payment processors. ALL SUCH PAYMENTS ARE NONREFUNDABLE AND THERE ARE NO REFUNDS FOR PARTIALLY USED OR UNUSED PERIODS.
Eligibility. You are eligible to use our subscription-based content up to the end of your paid monthly billing period. For 1-on-1 coaching you must begin and end the training program within 24 months of joining the program. At our sole discretion we may allow the training to progress past the 24 month cut-off time. In these situations the need to extend the cut-off time needs to be communicated to us well before the cut-off period.
Recurring Billing. By starting your Firmsconsulting membership and providing or designating a Payment Method, you authorize us to charge you a monthly membership fee at the then current rate, and any other charges you may incur in connection with your use of the Firmsconsulting service to your Payment Method. You acknowledge that the amount billed each month may vary from month to month for reasons that may include differing amounts due to promotional offers, including gift card redemption and promotional code redemption, and/or changing or adding a plan, and you authorize us to charge your Payment Method for such varying amounts, which may be billed monthly in one or more charges. If you opt-in to receive payment notifications, we will send notification on the day your credit card is charged to the email address you provide us.
No Refunds. PAYMENTS ARE NONREFUNDABLE AND THERE ARE NO REFUNDS OR CREDITS FOR PARTIALLY USED PERIODS. FAILURE TO CANCEL YOUR MEMBERSHIP FOR ANY REASON WILL NOT LEAD TO A REFUND. Following any cancellation, however, you will continue to have access to the service through the end of your current billing period. At any time, and for any reason, we may provide a refund, discount, or other consideration to some or all of our members (“credits”). The amount and form of such credits, and the decision to provide them, are at our sole and absolute discretion. The provision of credits in one instance does not entitle you to credits in the future for similar instances, nor does it obligate us to provide credits in the future, under any circumstance.
Payment Methods. You may edit your Payment Method information by visiting our website and clicking on the “Manage your Account” link, available at the bottom of the pages of the Firmsconsulting website. If a payment is not successfully settled, due to expiration, insufficient funds, or otherwise, and you do not edit your Payment Method information or cancel your account (see, “Cancellation” below), you remain responsible for any uncollected amounts and authorize us to continue billing the Payment Method, as it may be updated. This may result in a change to your payment billing dates. For certain Payment Methods, the issuer of your Payment Method may charge you a foreign transaction fee or other charges. Check with your Payment Method service provider for details.
Cancellation. You may cancel your Firmsconsulting membership at any time, and you will continue to have access to the Firmsconsulting service through the end of your monthly billing period. WE DO NOT PROVIDE REFUNDS OR CREDITS FOR ANY PARTIAL-MONTH MEMBERSHIP PERIODS OR UNWATCHED MATERIAL. To cancel, go to the “Manage your Account” page on our website and follow the instructions for cancellation. Cancellations can only be made through our website at www.firmsconsulting.com and not through our digital applications. If you cancel your membership, your account will automatically close at the end of your current billing period. To see when your account will close, click the “Manage your Account” page. If you signed up for Firmsconsulting using your account with a third party as a Payment Method, and wish to cancel your Firmsconsulting membership at any time, including during your free trial, you may need to do so through such third party, including by visiting your account with the applicable third party and turning off auto-renew, or unsubscribing from, the Firmsconsulting service through that third party. You may also find billing information about your Firmsconsulting membership by visiting your account with the applicable third party.
Firmsconsulting Insider. When billed monthly FC Insider status is gained after being a Premium member for 6 consecutive months (on the 7th billing). When billed monthly FC Insider status is lost when a Premium membership breaks, ends, cancels or lapses for any reason for more than 14 days for any reason. After 14 days the subscription is treated as “broken,” access cannot be restored and all credits and/or access to FC Insider are lost. To regain FC Insider status, a member will need to activate their Premium subscription and remain an active Premium subscriber for another 6 consecutive full months after rejoining. During this time they will have access to StrategyTV.com/apps but will not have access to StrategyTraining.com/apps. During the 14 day lapsed-billing period access is blocked but members will immediately return to FC Insider status upon resuming their membership. If payment fails for any reason and a member corrects the payment problem within 14 days, the renewal date will automatically switch to the new date on which the payment problem was corrected. Since FC Insider status requires no lapse in the billing we will automatically bill you a pro-rated amount for the lapsed billing equal to: your subscription daily fee x # days renewal date pushed forward. We reserve the unconditional right to make any changes, without notice, including, but not limited to, adding and removing programs, and changing access conditions. We also reserve the exclusive, unconditional and non-negotiable worldwide right to deny an eligible member access to FC Insider for any reason. However, such an action usually occurs when a member is no longer in good standing (e.g. in breach of our terms and conditions).
Account Management. Managing accounts, including the process of cancellation is the sole responsibility of the member. Firmsconsulting does not handle/manage any accounts on behalf of clients. We may review account details on behalf of a client but it is the responsibility of the member to make any and all necessary changes.
6 INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY
Users of our Websites hereby understand that the material, such as tools, processes, strategies, videos, graphics, images, sound recordings, information presented on our Websites, and other material provided by or on behalf of Firmsconsulting (collectively referred to as the “Content”) is copyrighted and proprietary, so users agree not to record, download, duplicate, distribute, teach or train from our information in any manner whatsoever without our express written permission.

Without limiting the foregoing, you acknowledge and agree that uses of your Registered User Content, name, likeness, and photograph permitted by the foregoing rights and licenses may include the display of such Registered User Content, name, likeness, and photograph adjacent to advertising and other material or content, including for profit.
If you submit Registered User Content to us, each such submission constitutes a representation and warranty to Firmsconsulting that such Registered User Content is your original creation (or that you otherwise have the right to provide the Registered User Content), that you have the rights necessary to grant the license to the Registered User Content under the prior paragraph, and that it and its use by Firmsconsulting and its content partners as permitted by this Agreement does not and will not infringe or misappropriate the intellectual property or moral rights of any person or contain any libelous, defamatory, or obscene material or content that violates our Community Guidelines.

Applicable law may not allow the exclusion of implied warranties, so the above exclusion may not apply to you. We do not endorse, warrant or guarantee any speakers, products or services offered on the Websites or those we link to. We are not a party to, and do not monitor, any transaction between users and third party providers of products or services.
To the maximum extent permitted by applicable laws:
