Terms, Conditions, Privacy ... and More
Hi! I hope this finds you well and in good spirits.
I have found that it really helps to have terms, Conditions, Privacy and pages like this so we can try to get as clear as possible about some things that might pop up as we head on this journey together.
Of course, if something occurs that isn’t covered by something you see here, reach out to us at: you firstname.lastname@example.org
So to minimize confusion and maximize mutual understanding, I am sharing with you the ‘House Rules’ for interacting with me or anyone working with me, working at Karin Olson Agency or otherwise affiliated with Karin Olson Agency.
Because this is so important, you are required to agree and abide by each and all of the Rules below to use this website and/or any of what is offered through it.
This is so important that if you don’t agree, you don’t have permission to continue use. So …PLEASE READ THESE ‘TERMS, CONDITIONS, PRIVACY … AND MORE’ CAREFULLY.
I. You must agree to the terms, conditions, rules and other legal stuff (from here on I’ll refer to all of them as the ‘Rules’) to use this website, programs,
services and the offerings I, we and/or Karin Olson Agency provide or make available. That means that these Rules govern the use of this website, the places listed under “Ownership” below, and any place where I, we and/or Karin Olson Agency delivers content, programs, or services, including via a virtual workshop, in-person workshop, membership site, Academy, content, material, live programs, coaching services, advice or in any other format, and whether offered digitally, in-person, over the phone, online or in some other format.
II. You are not permitted to use this website, programs, services or other offerings we, I and/or Karin Olson Agency makes available – regardless of what it is, how it is delivered or by whom – unless and until you understand, agree and consent to these Rules. By using this site, the programs, a workshop and/or services offered, or by investing in yourself through purchasing a service, workshop experience, program, content or other material, you agree to these Rules, including any changes that come at any time (even if you haven’t reviewed them, don’t know about them or weren’t notified). There may be more such Rules provided along with the programs, workshops, services and offerings and any such Rule also require your agreement to them. They count too.
It’s this simple: if you don’t agree with each and all the Rules, you don’t have permission to use any of this website, and/or the workshops, programs, services or other offerings made available by me, us and/or Karin Olson Agency. Period.
III. Karin Olson Agency is in the business of providing people with information, education and hopefully a little companionship and entertainment. We do so largely, although not exclusively, via Done-For-You work, digital offerings, including courses, teachings, workshop-like presence, website, workshop experience or membership site, and/or live events, through which information and/or educational content can be delivered. Usually, although not always, it is delivered either one-on-one or through a group virtual experience. Every once in a while, we deliver it in person.
I. V. CONTACT:
The place to contact me, us and/or Karin Olson Agency, or to serve any notices, is:
Send all information or inquires to: Karin Olson, P.O. Box 4561, Chicago, IL 60680
Phone number: 312-702-1350
1. Ownership, Language and Other ‘Stuff’: These Rules apply to any and/or all of the websites, workshops, programs, events, offerings, work and/or services that have been in the past, are presently, or at some point in the future are owned, operated, managed, hosted or provided, in whole or in part, by and/or through me, us and/or Karin Olson Agency unless otherwise specifically stated to the contrary.
I will be using when referring to me, Karin Olson, and/or Karin Olson Agency, and/or we, the terms ‘I,” “me,””we,” and/or “my” or “our” as well as Karin Olson Agency, often interchangeably, and such use will individually and collectively mean “I,” “me” or “my” as well as “us, “we” and/or “our” together and separately, and each of them. I will also use Karin Olson and/or Karin Olson Agency, and this too will individually and collectively mean ‘I,””me,””we,””my,””our” and also the Karin Olson Agency team, employees, contractors and those who do work for and/or with me, we and/or us.
Ownership of any and all of the material I provide, including but is not limited to components, segments, training and material that I license anyone to use, and any other site, program, workshop, material, offering and/or service I own or come to own, is owned by me. I do not own under the terms provided here any sites I reference, link to or talk about that are not owned by me or licensed to me for my use.
2. Updates: I update the Rules on this page from time to time. While I might send out an email or post in social media or release something saying that I’ve updated them, for the most part they’ll just be updated and I won’t send anything out. So check back here regularly and often. When an update is made and posted here, it will be effective immediately unless otherwise stated. If you use the site after the update, you have agreed to the new terms even if you did not review them. I reserve the right to change these Rules at any time, without notice and at our sole discretion.
Please understand that I, we and/or the Karin Olson Agency do not believe in get rich quick schemes, the easy path, educational miracle pills, pyramid schemes, overnight success, instantaneous education gratification and other rags to riches promises. These are often used to prey on the unsuspecting … and I don’t agree with that. I, we and the Karin Olson Agency does not offer such. Those gimmicks really bother us. If you are considering … or already have … signed up because you want a miracle with no effort on your part, please understand that this isn’t that.
I, we and/or the Karin Olson Agency offer information of an informative, educational nature with an eye towards entertainment and within a framework and mindset embracing growth.
Also, we here at Karin Olson Agency really hate it when people pretend to be an expert in areas where they clearly are not. As such, even though one or more financial advisors, tax advisors, therapists, attorneys, health care providers, relationship consultants or Workshop enthusiasts might at some point now or in the future provide information or be a part of my team, Karin Olson Agency does not offer nor should anything provided, referred to or that appears on or in the Karin Olson Agency website, content, programs or services be construed as offering any of the following: financial advice, tax advice, therapy, legal advice, medical advice, relationship advice or business advice.
If you would be well served in obtaining professional advice, please get it. This is especially true for educational, financial, tax, mental health, legal, business, health and medical issues, especially since stress and other conditions may require medical attention, diagnosis and/or treatment, and relationship issues … just for starters.
So please do not think I, we and/or Karin Olson Agency, or any of us here, offer that. We don’t. Not for a moment. It also means that you and I, nor anyone who works with or for us, do not have an: accountant-client, tax-client, therapist-counselor, attorney-client, doctor-patient or marital counseling relationship that is protected by law.
Karin Olson Agency does provide guarantees of satisfaction with the products, programs, workshops, events, services and offerings provided as specifically indicated with each one provided and/or identified below. Other than any such specific guarantee provided, there are no other guarantees, promises, and/or warranties, whether express or implied. That means that what is provided – whether a program, service, Workshop, offering or even just plain old information, content or material – with no warranty, express or implied, and is provided “as is.”
Much as I would like everything on the websites, emails, Academy, groups, forums, events and other places where Karin Olson Agency provides content to always be safely up and running error-free at all times uninterrupted no matter what, that is not possible.
I do not guarantee, warrant or make representations of such. Karin Olson Agency also doesn’t guarantee or warrant that the websites, Workshops, Academy, groups, forums or servers that deliver the content, programs and information will be free of harmful viruses, malware or components, or that they will always work … including when we want them to do so. What we can guarantee given that we, and the people we work with, are human is that from time to time there will be mistakes, misunderstandings and problems. The system will at times go down, be slow or not function as Karin Olson Agency wants it to do. Neither Karin Olson Agency nor those who help deliver the work, websites, programs, Workshops, services and offerings guarantee, warrant or represent that it will all run smoothly, be accurate, reliable, correct or function all the time or at any given time. As such, you assume when you use the website, Workshop, Academy, groups, forums, programs and offerings the full and complete cost of any and all servicing, repair, adjustment, update or correction to your equipment and system and understand that much though we would like to deliver exactly on time and as promised, sometimes technology, especially that connected to the internet, prevents such.
Under no circumstance will Karin Olson Agency, I, our team, employees, contractors and those who do work for us on our stuff be liable for direct, indirect, special, consequential, exemplary or other damages. You agree to that and agree that such is true regardless of the nature or degree of damage or injury, and whether the actual or claimed damage is an economic loss, impairment to business opportunity, any type of injury, illness, death or impairment to relationship.
