3.0 Online Commerce
Certain sections of the Site may allow you to purchase many different types of products and services online that are provided by third parties. We are not responsible for the quality, accuracy, timeliness, reliability, or any other aspect of these products and services. If you make a purchase from a merchant on the Site or on a site linked to by the Site, the information obtained during your visit to that merchant’s online store or site, and the information that you give as part of the transaction, such as your credit card number and contact information, may be collected by both the merchant and us. A merchant may have privacy and data collection practices that are different from ours. We have no responsibility or liability for these independent policies. In addition, when you purchase products or services on or through the Site, you may be subject to additional terms and conditions that specifically apply to your purchase or use of such products or services. For more information regarding a merchant, its online store, its privacy policies, and/or any additional terms and conditions that may apply, visit that merchant’s website and click on its information links or contact the merchant directly. You release us and our affiliates from any damages that you incur, and agree not to assert any claims against us or them, arising from your purchase or use of any products or services made available by third parties through the Site.
Your participation, correspondence, or business dealings with any third party found on or through our Site, regarding payment and delivery of specific goods and services, and any other terms, conditions, representations, or warranties associated with such dealings, are solely between you and such third party. You agree that The Kin Keepers shall not be responsible or liable for any loss, damage, or other matters of any sort incurred as the result of such dealings.
You agree to be financially responsible for all purchases made by you or someone acting on your behalf through the Site. You agree to use the Site and to purchase services or products through the Site for legitimate, non-commercial purposes only. You also agree not to make any purchases for speculative, false, or fraudulent purposes or for the purpose of anticipating demand for a particular product or service. You agree to only purchase goods or services for yourself or for another person for whom you are legally permitted to do so. When making a purchase for a third party that requires you to submit the third party’s personal information to us or a merchant, you represent that you have obtained the express consent of such third party to provide such third party’s personal information.
4.0 Interactive Features

Any user failing to comply with these Terms of Service may be expelled from and refused continued access to, the message boards, chats or other public forums in the future. The Kin Keepers or its designated agents may remove or alter any user-created content at any time for any reason. Message boards, chats and other public forums are intended to serve as discussion centers for users and subscribers. Information and content posted within these public forums may be provided by The Kin Keepers staff, The Kin Keeper’s outside contributors, or by users not connected with The Kin Keepers, some of whom may employ anonymous user names. The Kin Keepers expressly disclaims all responsibility and endorsement and makes no representation as to the validity of any opinion, advice, information or statement made or displayed in these forums by third parties, nor are we responsible for any errors or omissions in such postings, or for hyperlinks embedded in any messages. Under no circumstances will we, our affiliates, suppliers or agents be liable for any loss or damage caused by your reliance on information obtained through these forums. The opinions expressed in these forums are solely the opinions of the participants, and do not reflect the opinions of Age of Wellbeing or any of its subsidiaries or affiliates.
The Kin Keepers has no obligation whatsoever to monitor any of the content or postings on the message boards, chat rooms or other public forums on the Sites. However, you acknowledge and agree that we have the absolute right to monitor the same at our sole discretion. In addition, we reserve the right to alter, edit, refuse to post or remove any postings or content, in whole or in part, for any reason and to disclose such materials and the circumstances surrounding their transmission to any third party in order to satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process or governmental request and to protect ourselves, our clients, sponsors, users and visitors.
To use certain features of the Site, you will need a username and password, which you will receive through the Site’s registration process. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of the password and account, and are responsible for all activities (whether by you or by others) that occur under your password or account. You agree to notify us immediately of any unauthorized use of your password or account or any other breach of security, and to ensure that you exit from your account at the end of each session. We cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to protect your password or account information.
The Site contains and makes available information in various forms (including, but not limited to, information contained in or made available through web pages, videos, newsletters, message boards, comments, coaching calls, emails, text files, and/or chats). No promises or assurances are given as to any of this information (Content), whether provided directly by The Kin Keepers or provided by third parties.
When addressing financial matters or other results on our Site or otherwise in the Content, we’ve attempted to ensure that we accurately represent our courses. However, there is no guarantee that you will get any results or earn any money using any of our ideas, tools, strategies, or recommendations. This is not a “get rich” scheme. Nothing on our Site or in any of the Content is a promise or guarantee of any future income, expenses, sales volume, profitability, or earnings. Your level of success in attaining similar results is dependent upon a number of factors, including your skill, knowledge, ability, dedication, business savvy, network, and financial situation, to name a few. Because these factors differ according to individuals, we cannot and do not guarantee your success, income level, or ability to earn revenue or profits. You alone are responsible for your actions and results in life and business. Any forward-looking statements on our Site or otherwise in any of the Content are simply our opinion and thus are not guarantees or promises of actual outcomes or performance. It should be clear to you that by law we make no guarantees that you will achieve any results from our ideas or models presented on our Site or in the Content.
We offer no professional legal, medical, psychological, or financial advice. Our Site and the Content cannot replace or substitute for the services of trained professionals in any field, including, but not limited to, financial, medical, psychological, or legal matters.
You alone are responsible and accountable for your decisions, actions, and results in life, and by your use of the Site or any of the Content, you agree not to attempt to hold us liable for any such decisions, actions, or results, at any time, under any circumstance.
6.3 Third Parties.
Throughout the Site, we may provide links and pointers to Internet sites maintained by third parties. Our linking to such third-party sites does not imply an endorsement or sponsorship of such sites, or the information, products, or services offered on or through the sites. In addition, neither we nor our affiliates operate or control in any respect any information, products, or services that third parties may provide on or through the Site or on websites linked to by us on the Site.
If applicable, any opinions, advice, statements, services, offers, or other information or content expressed or made available by third parties, including information providers, are those of the respective authors or distributors, and not The Kin Keepers. Neither The Kin Keepers nor any third-party provider of information guarantees the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of any content. Furthermore, The Kin Keepers neither endorses nor is responsible for the accuracy and reliability of any opinion, advice, or statement made on the Site by anyone other than an authorized The Kin Keepers representative while acting in his/her official capacity.

7.0 Limitation of Liability
UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, NEGLIGENCE, SHALL WE OR ANY OF OUR AFFILIATED COMPANIES BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL LOSSES OR DAMAGES THAT RESULT FROM THE USE OF, OR THE INABILITY TO USE, THE SITE, INCLUDING ITS MATERIALS, PRODUCTS, OR SERVICES, OR THIRD-PARTY MATERIALS, PRODUCTS, OR SERVICES MADE AVAILABLE THROUGH THE SITE, EVEN IF WE ARE ADVISED BEFOREHAND OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. (BECAUSE SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF CERTAIN CATEGORIES OF LOSSES OR DAMAGES, THE ABOVE LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. IN SUCH JURISDICTIONS, OUR LIABILITY AND THE LIABILITY OF OUR AFFILIATED COMPANIES IS LIMITED TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY SUCH JURISDICTION’S LAW.)
YOU SPECIFICALLY ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT WE ARE NOT LIABLE FOR ANY DEFAMATORY, OFFENSIVE, OR ILLEGAL CONDUCT OF ANY USER. IF YOU ARE DISSATISFIED WITH THE SITE, ANY MATERIALS, PRODUCTS, OR SERVICES ON THE SITE, OR WITH ANY OF THE SITE’S TERMS AND CONDITIONS, YOUR SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY IS TO DISCONTINUE USING THE SITE AND THE PRODUCTS, SERVICES, AND/OR MATERIALS.

The restrictions imposed on you with respect to material downloaded from the Site, and the disclaimers and limitations of liabilities set forth in these Terms of Service, shall survive.
9.0 Refund Policy
Your purchase of a product or service or ticket to an event may or may not provide for any right to a refund. Each specific product, service, event, or course will specify its own refund policy.
The EU Copyright Directive provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the Internet infringes their rights under the EU copyright law. If you believe in good faith that materials hosted by The Kin Keepers infringe your copyright, you or your agent may send The Kin Keepers a notice requesting that the material be removed or access to it be blocked. Any notification by a copyright owner or a person authorized to act on such owner’s behalf that fails to comply with requirements of the EU Copyright Directive shall not be considered sufficient notice and shall not be deemed to confer upon The Kin Keepers actual knowledge of facts or circumstances from which infringing material or acts are evident. If you believe in good faith that a notice of copyright infringement has been wrongly filed against you, the EU Copyright Directive permits you to send to The Kin Keepers a counter-notice. All notices and counter notices must meet the then current statutory requirements imposed by the EU Copyright Directive. The Kin Keepers Copyright Agent for notice of claims of copyright infringement or counter notices can be reached as follows: email@example.com.
These Terms of Service are binding upon and for the benefit of The Kin Keepers and you and The Kin Keepers and your respective assigns, successors, heirs, and legal representatives. Neither these Terms of Service nor any rights hereunder may be assigned by you without the prior written consent of The Kin Keepers. Notwithstanding the foregoing, all rights and obligations under these Terms of Service may be freely assigned by The Kin Keepers.
These Terms of Service shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of Canada and any dispute shall be subject to binding arbitration in Canada.
If any provision of this agreement shall be unlawful or otherwise unenforceable as to any person or circumstance for any reason, then such provision shall be curtailed and limited to the minimum extent necessary so that it is lawful and enforceable as so curtailed and limited (or, if such provision is not capable of being curtailed or limited, it shall be severed from these Terms of Service). The foregoing shall not affect the application of any such provision to any other person or circumstance nor the validity or enforceability of any other provision in these Terms of Service.
ABOUT THE KIN KEEPERS:
The kin keepers are those family members who know all the family’s stories, and pass them along to the next generations. They remember the birthdays, plan the celebrations, and make the calls to see that everyone is okay. Their spirit of kinship is what keeps the family together and strong.
