The terms “website”, “site” refer to www.yourlifeinspain.com. The terms “you”, “your”, “user”, “student”, “client” refer to clients, visitors, and any other users of the site.

Use of the site and our services
To use our site, you must be 18 years of age or older and have the requisite power and authority to enter into these Terms and Conditions. Children under the age of 18 are prohibited from using the site without their parent/guardian permission, and they are not allowed to make purchases of our products. If you’re under 18 and are interested in my services, please ask your parent/guardian to get in contact with me prior to making any purchases.
Product description & prices
We endeavor to describe and display our services as accurately as possible. While we try to be as clear as possible in explaining our services, please do not assume that the site is entirely accurate, current, or error-free. If you have any questions about our services, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We deserve the right to change our prices at any time and for any circumstance without the need to provide an explanation. Appropriate notice will be given to all students enrolled on that service. Students have the right to choose whether they want to continue receiving our service at the new price.
From time to time we may correct errors in pricing and descriptions. We reserve the right to refuse or cancel any order with an incorrect price listing.
We (or our third-party scheduling and payment processors) will email you to confirm the placement of your order and with details concerning product delivery.
In the event that there is an error in this email confirmation, it is your responsibility to inform us as soon as possible by email at email@example.com
Payments, cancellations & refunds
1. The prices stated on this website are for services provided to ONE student. If you want to add a family member or friend to the program, you can do so with the following conditions:
- all students must have a similar level of Spanish, and be of similar age or all adults.
- you can add up to 2 extra people (for a total of 3).
- the price of each lesson would increase 33% for each extra person. So, for example, if you were interested in the Conversation & Culture program, which is $156/month for one person, the price for two people would be $104/month per person (paid as a total of $208/month).
2. Monthly subcriptions for lessons and programs will be automatically billed through Paypal on the 1st of each month. Once billed, a month’s fee is non-refundable. If you want to discontinue a monthly subscription, you need to give us appropiate notice. Please let us know by the 28th day of the previous month.
3. Coffee break and on-demand sessions can be booked on this website and paid directly through Paypal at the moment of booking. Your session won’t be considered booked until we receive your full payment.
These sessions are refundable up to 24 hours before the time booked originally. If you need to cancel a session, please get in contact with us at firstname.lastname@example.org. After the 24-hour limit, all sessions will be non-refundable, except under special circumstances subject to our own criteria.
4. You may reschedule any session up to 24 hours prior to the time booked originally. You may reschedule each session once only. If you need to reschedule a session, please get in contact with us at email@example.com.
After the 24-hour limit, sessions won’t be subject to rescheduling, except under special circumstances subject to our own criteria.
5. Please be on time to each of our sessions. If you’re going to be late, let me know as soon as possible.
I wait for students for 15 minutes. If you don’t show up within that timeframe, I’ll end the session and consider it a no-show.
6. No refunds or rescheduling options will be given for no-shows under any circumstances.
7. Because of the nature of digital products, there are no refunds available for video training, courses, workbooks and e-books once they have been downloaded, sent or shared.
8. No refunds will be given under any circumstances for services where you received individual attention from me, once the service has been provided. Including, but not limited to, live sessions with me, and consultation services—such as feedback and correction of assignments.
9. We use secure internationally-known third-party payment processors—Wave Apps, Paypal and Gumroad—that meet the highest standard of online security. If you want more information about how these third-party apps work, please visit their official website.
We don’t receive any payment details from these apps, other than the last 4 digits of your credit/debit card. This is standard procedure within online payment processors for identification purposes.
Refusal of service
Our services are offered subject to our acceptance of your order or requests. We reserve the right to refuse service to any order, person or entity, without the obligation to assign reason for doing so.
No order is deemed accepted by us until payment has been processed. We may at any time change or discontinue any aspect or feature of our site or services, subject to us fulfilling our previous responsibilities to you based on acceptance of your payment.
We also reserve the right to discontinue service if a student keeps cancelling/rescheduling their sessions, we don’t hear from them for several weeks, or for other reason it’s obvious to us that they’re not taking advantage of our service. We will give appropriate written notification.
