Welcome to my site – monicakingsley.co!
Please pardon a little legal information before getting to the beautiful business of markets and trading…
Pretty standard and little surprising Terms – I believe the only thing standing out is the fact that on account of my experience with Sunshine Profits since 2020, the company (including its associate and successor entities) isn’t welcome without my prior written permission. This doesn’t apply to you if you solely signed up for their services, or never did business with them. Please see points 2.4. and 9.2. for details.
Regardless of the above, it’s my immutable personal characteristic to keep on looking for goodness in the world and to give the benefit of the doubt for as long as I can… For as long as I can…
Instead of the past I’ve happily left behind, I’m looking forwards to serve your interests as best as I can, above all.
2. Accepting the Terms
2.1. In order to use the Site, you must firstly agree to the Terms. You may not use the Site or Service(s) if you do not accept the Terms.
2.2. You can accept the Terms by simply using the Site. You understand and agree that Monica Kingsley shall treat your use of the Site or Service(s) as an acceptance of the Terms from that point onwards. If you don’t agree with any and all parts of these Terms, please leave the Site, its Service(s) and close your Account immediately.
2.3. You may not use the Site or Service(s) sand may not accept the Terms if (a) you are not of legal age to form a binding contract, or (b) you are a person who is either barred or otherwise legally prohibited from receiving or using the Site or Service under the laws of the country in which you are resident or from which you access the Site or use the Service(s), or (c) your Account has been previously disabled or terminated for violation of law or these Terms.
2.4. You may use the Site as a User, but not the Service(s) as an Account Holder, if you are Sunshine Profits owner, employee, associate, author, affiliate or business partner who has either personally or through any legal entity controlled, having a stake in, or business relationship with, ever received any Sunshine Profits derived funds that triggered a taxable event (regardless of the funds being your income, royalty, or similar – the only exception is merely having received a refund from Sunshine Profits if you signed up for their premium services, and decided to terminate your subscription prematurely) for yourself or such legal entity. You further agree not to pass the premium content accessible upon creating Account, in full or in part, knowingly or unknowingly, directly or indirectly via any third party (third parties) or medium, onto such defined Sunshine Profits persons. All the above applies in full also to the company’s associate and successor entities.
The above paragraph represents the explanation to the simplified tickbox “I do not work for Sunshine Profits” you encounter when creating Account. Should you (as such defined Sunshine Profits person) still be interested to use Monica Kingsley’s Service(s), you must first apply and be granted her written permission prior to creating Account.
3.1. Such is the definition of the terms used:
The Site = monicakingsley.co
The Account = the free registration on the Site
User = anyone who accesses or connects to the Site
Account Holder = registered User who created Account
The Subscriber = anyone who subscribes, i.e. purchases Subscription, which is a time-limited access to the Service
The Service(s) = the freely emailed content after Account creation, the premium content accessible upon subscribing, and/or additional content provided on a 1:1 basis, in English
Link = hyperlink or mention of another site
4. Account, Subscription and Payment Details
4.1. You become an Account Holder once you complete the free registration on the Site, and are thus granted access to select part(s) of the Service(s), and are eligible to receive free ad-hoc email messages from Monica Kingsley as relates to the Service(s).
4.2. You become a Subscriber when Monica Kingsley acknowledges receipt of payment for the Service(s).
4.3. Payment to access the Service(s) varies upon your choice of product and subscription length. You agree to pay all applicable fees, charges and taxes that are associated with the Service(s) stipulated by Monica Kingsley’s Patreon account as subscription and indirect taxes associated with Monica Kingsley’s digital services are handled by Patreon, who will also issue invoice to you (Monica Kingsley won’t issue an invoice to you). In the above extent, Patreon’s Terms apply. You acknowledge that the payments for Service(s) have been and will be made using a credit card or other means by you or on your behalf. So as to pay by credit card, you (the cardholder) must confirm that you are at least 18 years old. If you’re unclear on anything regarding using the free or paid Service(s), you must contact Monica Kingsley with your questions via email or the Contact section on the Site. As for your ongoing paid Service(s) access arranged via Patreon, please use Patreon’s support channels responsibly in the scope of Patreon’s services to you, while keeping Monica Kingsley aware of key developments concerning your subscription with her.
Specifically, follow the instruction on her Patreon page by confirming your Account on her Site so as to establish your premium access and enable mailings receipt. Send her an email to firstname.lastname@example.org right after you successfully join her via Patreon, or in case of any difficulties joining..
You agree to pay all taxes applicable under your jurisdiction, together with payment for the Service(s).
The payment entitles you to access the Service(s), therefore all costs, charges and applicable taxes depend on having enabled you to access a particular content or Service(s) as per the Patreon service screens regardless of whether these Service(s) are used or not.
The beginning date of your usage of the Service(s) is the day, on which you obtain access, which is usually the day you decide to join the Service(s) via Patreon.
As per Patreon’s Terms that Monica Kingsley can’t influence, the first monthly charge grants you access throughout the remainder of the current calendar month, with each recurring charge (unless duly cancelled) granting you access to the following full calendar month. It means that depending on the day of the month you join (your first month), the access may be shorter than the total number of days in that month (e.g. whether you join on Mar 05 or Mar 10, you’ll in both cases have access till Mar 31).
Yearly packages grant you access till the last calendar day of the month you joined in of the next year. It means that depending on the day of the month you join, the access may be shorter than the total number of days in the coming 12 months (e.g. whether you join on Dec 05 or Dec 10, 2022, you’ll in both cases have access till Dec 31, 2023).
Monica Kingsley refunds payments only if she receives your email request within 7 calendar days from the date of your initial decision to subscribe. The maximum refund amount is limited to the corresponding payment for requests arriving during the 7 days money back guarantee period. For requests originating in the 7-14 days since subscribing, email Monica Kingsley. Monica Kingsley will refund payments for Subscriber’s first request only. Refunding Subscription is considered as cancelling the Subscription. Declining payment (charge) is not considered as cancelling the Subscription. Only a refund request sent to email@example.com address exclusively, can be considered as a refund request.
As long as you do not cancel the Subscription, you are required to pay any and all applicable charges for the Service(s).
You are responsible for making sure that your refund or Service(s) cancellation request is processed – upon your written request, you’ll receive Monica Kingsley’s confirmation thereof. It takes up to 2 business days to process such a request. Unless your refund or Service(s) cancellation request is confirmed by Monica Kingsley and processed, you would be charged for the next period of accessing the Service(s) as if no request had been made.
If you pay by a credit card or via online money transfer, and you do not receive confirmation that the funds arrived within 48 hours, you must contact Monica Kingsley in this matter.
Pricing for the Service(s) may change. The price you paid for the Service(s) is valid only for the current period, and may change during your Subscription period, of which you would be notified at least a month in advance. In case of automatic renewal of Subscription, your next payment after such a price change of the Service(s) will reflect that change. Your credit card charge or other means of payment will be automatically charged or debited unless you have cancelled your Subscription. So as not to be charged the new price for the next period, you must cancel your Subscription before the renewal date.
All Subscriptions except for additional content provided on a 1:1 basis, are provided on a continuous renewal basis. Your Subscription will be renewed for the same period that you were subscribed to.
All requests to Monica Kingsley as regards paid subscriptions and all other matters, are to be addressed to her firstname.lastname@example.org address exclusively to be considered as duly made.
