Investment and Payment.


Payment: Your investment in the program is as per the website or any payment agreed to and made through Moonclerk, PayPal or direct bank transfer.


Authorization and Receipt:  If paying by PayPal or credit card, you give me permission to automatically charge your credit or debit card as payment for your Program for which you will receive an electronic receipt. 


Refunds:  I want you to be happy with your decision to join this Retreat. However, because I will have invested considerable time and effort in planning this Retreat, if you decide to withdraw at any time for any reason whatsoever, you still will remain fully responsible for the full cost of the Retreat, and no refund will be provided.


If you have paid for your placement on Retreat, your registration is non-refundable, but fully transferable. In other words: if you can’t attend, send a friend. This retreat is not transferrable to a future retreat, training or coaching program. All requests for transfers must be received in writing to amy@amymcdonald.com.au.


If you are attending this retreat as a bonus inclusion for enrolling in the Grow, Serve & Shine private coaching package or GYYB VIP Track, your registration is non-refundable, non-transferable and non-redeemable for cash or services.




In registering for this Retreat you agree I, Amy McDonald, shall not be held responsible for any damage, loss or delay. In registering for this retreat you agree to assume all risks associated with the trip and agree that no liability will be attached to me for any personal injury, illness, delay, loss or damages to property or health.


I, Amy McDonald, reserve the right to change the program schedule if necessary. I shall not be held liable or responsible for any expenses, including but not limited to lodging, meals, and transportation incurred by delays or other uncontrollable issues outside of our program. In the event that we need to cancel because of unexpected circumstances all monies paid to me will be refunded in full. 


Travel insurance.


It is a requirement of your registration that you agree to purchase necessary and appropriate travel insurance.




I will keep all information exchanged during the Program in strict confidentiality.  I am prohibited from disclosing protected confidential information to anyone else without reason to know such information, except as when required by law or upon written authorisation by you.


Intellectual Property Rights.


I retain all ownership rights to the materials provided to you through your participation in the Program. The copyrighted and original materials shall be provided to you for your individual use only and with a single-user license. You are not authorized to share, copy, distribute, or disseminate any materials received from us electronically or otherwise without our prior written consent. All intellectual property, including the copyrighted Program materials, shall remain our sole property and no license to sell or distribute our materials is granted or implied. You agree not to reproduce, duplicate, copy, sell, trade, resell or exploit for any commercial or personal purposes, any portion of the Program, including any of the Program materials.


Personal Responsibility, Disclaimer & Release of Claims.


Personal Responsibility & Assumption of Risk:  You acknowledge that you take full responsibility for your health and well-being and all personal and career/business decisions made before, during and after your Program.  I have used care in preparing the information provided to you, but all of my information, programs and services are made available to you as self-help tools for your own personal use related to your life and career, and for informational and educational purposes only. You accept full responsibility for all of your choices, actions and results, and expressly assume the risks of the Program for your use, or non-use, of the information provided by us to you.  You also understand that you are expressly assuming all of the risks of the Program, whether or not such risks were created or exacerbated by the Program.


Disclaimer:  You acknowledge that I am supporting you in my role exclusively as the Founder of ‘Amy McDonald’.  In this role, I serve solely as a life and business coach, providing development and coaching for educational and informational purposes only. I do not provide medical, financial or legal advice. You agree that you are personally responsible for your results, and that while I serve as your guide, your success depends primarily on your own effort, motivation, commitment and follow-through. You accept and understand that results differ by each individual, and as with any career/business-related program, specific results cannot be guaranteed. By signing this Agreement you are consenting to this Disclaimer.


Release of Claims:  I will not be held legally responsible for the information that you request or receive through this Program. By signing this Agreement, you assume all risks and fully and completely hold harmless, indemnify and release us and any other of my employees, shareholders, directors, staff, consultants, agents, or anyone affiliated with me from any and all liability, damages, causes of action, allegations, suits, sums of money, claims and demands whatsoever, in law or equity, that you ever had, now have or will have in the future against me, arising from your participation in or in any way related to the Program, unless arising from the gross negligence on my part.


Other Important Terms.


Termination:  Either of us may terminate this Agreement with seventy-two (72) hours written notice to the other.  E-mail notification is permissible and sufficient to the e-mail addresses as set forth at the end of this Agreement.  All Investment and Refund Policy terms as written above in this Agreement, and all of the terms of this Agreement, will still apply even after termination.


Entire Agreement, Assignment, Survivability and Waiver: This Agreement contains our entire agreement. This Agreement may be modified or amended at any time if the amendment is made in writing and is signed by both of us. You may not assign your rights or obligations under this Agreement to anyone else. In the event that any part of this Agreement is deemed invalid or unenforceable, it shall not affect the validity or enforceability of any of the remaining portions of the Agreement which shall be severed and remain in full force. The failure to enforce any provision of this Agreement shall not be construed as a waiver or limitation of the right to later enforce and compel strict compliance with every part of this Agreement.


Governing Law:  This Agreement shall be construed according to the laws of the State of Victoria, Australia and both parties shall comply with all ordinances, regulations and rules of the State of Victoria.


Dispute Resolution:  It is hoped that should we ever have any differences, we could be able to work them out through a phone conversation or e-mail correspondence. However, should a dispute ever arise between us, you agree now that the only remedy that is available to you, or that can be awarded to you, is full refund of your Payment. No award of consequential or of any other type of damages may be granted to you.


Non-Disparagement:  In the event of a dispute between us, you agree to not engage in any conduct or communications, public or private, designed to disparage the Program or me.


By accepting this Agreement, we are both acknowledging that we have read, understand, agree to and accept all of the terms in this Agreement. Your registration in the Retreat is not confirmed until this acceptance has been received, and payment has been made.
