2) STUDENT AGREEMENT & CONDUCT POLICIES
I agree to be added to the Student Database of Ontogony Evolution LTD for the purpose of receiving course communications, and to the ‘Ontogony Mailing List’ so that I will be kept abreast of updates from Ontogony and Carlos de León.
I understand that my contact information is kept in a secure manner and, upon completion of my studies with Ontogony, I may unsubscribe at any time.
I understand and agree that all course materials (PDFS, Video, Audio & Practices) are for my own personal use only, and I agree not to share the material with others and to fully respect the copyrights of Ontogony and Carlos de León.
I agree to respect the confidentiality of all other students, and I will not share their personal processes outside of the program.
3) PROGRAM ENROLMENT REQUIREMENTS
I fully understand that there are no refunds for any online or live-streaming program, as the course materials can be accessed for viewing and review at any time during the corresponding access term of the program.
I have agreed to the Terms and Conditions and made a commitment to the complete program and payment of the full tuition. I will fulfil the payment plan which I agreed to at the time of enrolment until the final amount is paid in full.
Should I, at any time, need to place my payment plan on hold or require financial assistance due to unforeseen circumstances, I will contact the Financial Administrator to reevaluate my plan. I am aware that this may result in a temporary suspension from the program and will be reactivated upon the commencement of my payments.
I agree to provide a credit card for the payment of my financial plan and understand the information is hosted in a secure web portal and, once entered, the information is hidden for maximum security.
In special circumstances, a student may be allowed to bank credits, or transfer them to another individual. Requests for either must be submitted in writing to Ontogony: email@example.com and will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. Banked credits must be used within one year of the originally scheduled program.
I agree that if my payment plan is not current with payments pending, I will not enrol in other Ontogony Programs and/or continue to increase my debt beyond my means.
