PCA Terms & Conditions
TERMS AND CONDITIONS
Please READ carefully, as this pertains to the Agreement of your registration with any of the products sold (sometimes referred to as Program) by Photo Business Design (sometimes referred to as “Company”).
By purchasing our products, you (sometimes referred to as "Client") agree to the following terms stated.
Photo Business Design agrees to provide course content, identified as an online course aid, to help Clients market their business online. Client agrees to abide by all policies and procedures outlined in this Agreement as a condition of their participation in any of our programs.
Client understands Megan Maundrell and Rikki Gordon (Fredrika) and Photo Business Design, is not an employee, agent, lawyer, doctor, manager, therapist, public relations or business manager, registered dietician, or financial analyst, psychotherapist or accountant. Client understands their participation in this program will not treat or diagnose any disease, illness, or ailment and if they should experience any such issues they should see their registered physician or other practitioner as determined by their own judgment.
Client understands that neither Megan Maundrell and Rikki Gordon (Fredrika), nor Company, has not promised, nor shall be obligated to, the following:
(1) Success in business, results, and sales for the Client.
(2) Provide assistance, as either coach or mentor, with consultations for future business contracts made by Client.
(3) Procure any publicity, social media exposure, interviews, write-ups, features, television, or print promotions for the Client.
(4) Introduce Client to Company’s full network of contacts, media, or business partners. Client understands that a relationship does not exist between the Parties after the conclusion of this program.
Client is responsible for the completion of all payment plans associated with products they purchase. We reserve the right to seek recovery of any monies remaining unpaid via our Collection Agency.
METHODS OF PAYMENT
We accept Visa, Mastercard, and American Express as a form of payment. If Client chooses to pay by monthly installments, he/she authorizes the monthly charge for the product on the Client`s credit card or debit card.
We DO NOT offer refunds on our PhotoCEO Academy program.
Please note: If you opted for a payment plan, you are required by law to complete your payment plan. We reserve the right to seek recovery of any monies remaining unpaid via our Collection Agency.
We offer a 365-day Conditional Guarantee. We do not offer refunds.
To request consideration for the Guarantee, Clients are required to complete the course, attend all coaching calls (or watch the replays), and submit proof of completed homework given by Photo Business Design.
All returns and refunds are discretionary as determined by Photo Business Design. If you have any questions, contact us at [email protected].
As mentioned above, all returns are discretionary. If you just downloaded the Training Material (PDFs, audios, videos, additional workbooks, and/or etc.), and then promptly asked for a return, we reserve the right to deny your request. Why? Because the point of the policy is to give people the chance to try the system, and if it doesn't work, they can get their money back. It wasn't designed to enable people to steal the Training Material.
Photo Business Design respects Clients’ privacy and insists that the Client respects ours as well. Thus, consider this a mutual non-disclosure Agreement. Any confidential information shared by Photo Business Design Participants or any representative of Photo Business Design is confidential, proprietary, and belongs solely and exclusively to the Client or representative who discloses it. Parties agree not to disclose, reveal, or make use of any confidential information or any transactions during discussions, in the forum or otherwise.
Client agrees not to use such confidential information in any manner other than in discussion with other Clients, or Megan Maundrell and Rikki Gordon (Fredrika), during the respective program. Confidential information includes, but is not limited to, information disclosed in connection with this Agreement, and shall not include information rightfully obtained from a third party.
Both Parties will keep private information in strictest confidence and shall use their best efforts to safeguard the confidential information and to protect it against disclosure, misuse, espionage, loss, and theft.
Client agrees not to violate the Publicity or Privacy Rights belonging to Photo Business Design. Furthermore, Client will NOT reveal any information to a third party obtained in connection with this Agreement or our direct or indirect dealings with Client, including but not limited to, names, email addresses, third-party company titles or positions, phone numbers, or postal addresses. Additionally, Client will not, at any time, either directly or indirectly, disclose confidential information to any third party.
By purchasing our products, you agree that if you violate or display any likelihood of violating this Agreement, Photo Business Design and/or the other program participant(s) will be entitled to injunctive relief to prohibit any such violations to protect against the harm of such violations.

Every effort has been made to accurately represent our products and their potential. Even though this industry is one of the few where one can write their own check in terms of earnings, there is no guarantee that you will earn any money using the techniques and ideas in these materials. Examples in these materials are not to be interpreted as a promise or guarantee of earnings. Earning potential is entirely dependent on the person using our products, ideas, and techniques. We do not purport any of our products to be a “get rich scheme.”
Any claims made of actual earnings or examples of actual results can be verified upon request. Your level of success in attaining the results claimed in our materials depends on the time you devote to our programs, ideas, and techniques mentioned, your finances, knowledge, and various skills. Since these factors differ according to the individual, we cannot guarantee your success or income level, nor are we responsible for any of your actions.
Materials in our products and on our website may contain information that includes, or is based upon, forward-looking statements within the meaning of the securities litigation reform act of 1995. Forward-looking statements give our expectations or forecasts of future events. You can identify these statements by the fact that they do not relate strictly to historical or current facts. They use words such as “anticipate,” “estimate,” “expect,” “project,” “intend,” “plan,” “believe,” and other words and terms of similar meaning in connection with a description of potential earnings or financial performance.
Any and all forward-looking statements here, or on any of our sales materials, are intended to express our opinion of earnings potential. Many factors are important in determining your actual results and no guarantees are made that you will achieve results similar to ours or the testimonials of our clients. In fact, no guarantees are made that you will achieve any results from the ideas and techniques in our material.
