Terms Of Participation



You are purchasing access to The Ideas Workshop - either as an Annual Subscription or for a fixed term 12 Months of Access (non renewing). 


This entitles you to access all course classes, content, materials, downloads, tools and The Ideas Workshop Community for the duration of your membership. 


If you choose the Annual Subscription option your subscription will renew in 12 months time and your payment details will be re-charged at the same rate. 


If you choose the 12 Month access (non renewing) option - then after 12 Months your access to all course classes, content, materials, downloads, tools and The Ideas Workshop Community will cease, unless you renew your membership by placing a new order. The price for renewing your membership - should you wish to do so - is not guaranteed to be offered at the current discounted rate.


The Split Pay option allows you to spread the payment over 2 monthly instalments, but will not renew in 12 months time. 


Any plan other than the annual subscription is not guaranteed to be offered at the same price in future.

Upon a completed refund, your membership will be cancelled, and you will lose access to The Ideas Workshop, all lessons, tools and The Ideas Workshop community immediately. 


All refunds are discretionary. If you watch or access a majority of the training materials, we reserve the right to deny any refund request.  Our lenient refund policy is designed to give people a chance to see if the training is a good fit for them. Stealing the material is not covered in this policy. Upon purchase you agree to allow our software to track your access to the course materials. 


For Split pay or recurring billing, the refund guarantee is only available from the first 14 days of your membership. You will be re-billed automatically in accordance with your plan. Any missed payments will result in cancelation of your membership and the revocation of access to all lessons, tools and community with immediate effect.
