In order to access the Platform, you must be a “Registered User”. At this time, the only way to create an account is to purchase a paid product. You must be at least 18 years of age or the age of legal majority in your jurisdiction to create an Account.
You must keep your Account information up to date and accurate at all times. You are responsible for all activity that occurs under your Account. You may not allow others to use or access your Account. If you suspect your account has been breached or improperly accessed, you must notify us immediately.
By becoming a Registered User, you agree to receive email communications from us that relate to your Account and the Services you requested.
4. Platform Access for Registered Users
After purchasing a paid product, you will be invited to create an account. In addition to the course materials, you will also be invited to join our Discord community. We will grant you a non-exclusive, non-transferrable licence to access and use the course package for which you have paid all required fees, along with access to the Discord community.
5. Payment Terms for Registered Users
- When you make a payment, you agree to use a valid payment method.
- We are not responsible for any fees charged to you by your financial institution for invalid method of payment, including, but not limited to, overdraft fees, insufficient funds fees, interest charges, foreign exchange fees and cross border fees (collectively, the “Invalid Payment Fees”).
- We will facilitate your payment of the applicable Fees through a third-party payment processor. We reserve the right to change our third-party payment processor without notice to you.
- If you are not satisfied with your selected course package, we offer you a 30-day refund. This policy is subject to change at any time, in our sole discretion, though we will honor the policy which was applicable at the time when your purchase was made.
- There is a limit of 2 refunds per course per person, and the total duration of ownership cannot exceed 30 days.
- We may from time to time offer promotional codes that can apply toward payment of course packages. Promotional codes are not transferable or redeemable for cash and may expire if not used within a specified period.

We reserve the right to cancel promotional codes at any time, at our sole discretion.

Failure to comply may result in the suspension or termination of your Account and of your access and use of the Services and Platform, without refund. In rare cases, exceptions can be made, in our sole discretion.
- Depending on your region, you may be offered the option to purchase a country-specific licence to access and use the Services. This country-specific licence may be offered at a reduced cost, in order to make the course more affordable for students living in countries with lower purchasing power. If you choose to purchase a country-specific licence, please note that you will only be permitted to access the Services and Platform within your home country. If you’re found to be accessing the Services from outside your home country, you may be asked to pay the difference between the price paid for the country-specific licence and the applicable non-country specific licence.

We may also take additional actions, as appropriate, in accordance with these Terms.

14. Term, Termination, and Suspension
These Terms will remain in full force and effect unless and until updated or terminated hereunder.
Josh W Comeau may, at its sole discretion, at any time and for any reason, without notice to you, suspend or terminate your Account or your right to use and access the Services and/or the Platform. Upon termination of your Account, you shall no longer have the right to use and/or access the Services or Platform. This may include suspending or terminating your access to our Discord community. A suspension will be for such period of time as we may reasonably determine is necessary to permit the thorough investigation of the activity that resulted in the suspension.
You may terminate your Account at any time by contacting us and requesting that your Account is deleted. See contact information at the bottom of this document.
YOU AGREE THAT THE JOSH W COMEAU PARTIES HAVE NO LIABILITY WHATSOEVER FOR ANY LOSS, LIABILITY, INJURY, OR DAMAGE OF ANY KIND HOWSOEVER ARISING FROM ANY REFUSED, SUSPENDED, CANCELED OR TERMINATED STATUS AS A REGISTERED USER.
This provision survives termination of these Terms. All parties agree to first attempt to resolve any dispute relating to the access or use of the Websites or Services on an individual basis. If you have a question or concern about the Website or Services, please contact us first at firstname.lastname@example.org. Our support team will try to answer your question or resolve your concern. In the event we are unable to resolve the dispute directly, the parties agree to resolve any and all disputes through binding arbitration or in small claims court (to the extent the claim qualifies) instead of in courts of general jurisdiction, and only on an individual basis. Each party will initially bear its own attorneys' fees and expenses in connection with any dispute resolution.
- Arbitration. If the parties are not successful in resolving the dispute, then the parties agree that the dispute will be referred to arbitration before a single arbitrator and will be conducted under the rules and procedures under the Civil Code of Quebec and the Code of Civil Procedure of Quebec. Unless otherwise agreed by the parties, any arbitration will be held in Montreal, Quebec.
- Class Action Waiver. To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, any claim you may have must be brought individually, in your individual capacity and not as a representative plaintiff or class member, and you will not join such claim with claims of any other person or entity, or bring, join or participate in a class action lawsuit, collective or representative proceeding of any kind (existing or future) against Josh W Comeau.
These Terms and your use of the Services or Websites are governed by, construed and enforced in accordance with the applicable laws of the Province of Québec and the Federal Laws of Canada without regard to conflict of laws principles. Any cause of action brought to enforce these Terms, or in connection with any matters related to the Websites or Services shall be brought only before the Courts of Québec, sitting in Montréal, Canada, and you hereby irrevocably consent and attorn to the exclusive jurisdiction of that Court.
The headings and subheadings herein are provided for convenience of reference only and are not to be used in construing these Terms or any provision thereof.
These Terms are not assignable, transferable or sublicensable by you except with our prior written consent. We may assign, transfer or convey these Terms to a third-party without restriction or notice to you.
Josh W Comeau shall be excused for the period of any delay in the performance of any of its obligations under these Terms when such delay is due (in whole or in part) to a cause reasonably beyond our control, including, without limitation, labor disputes, pandemics, epidemics, civil commotion, war, governmental regulations or controls, government action, fire or other casualty, weather, and/or acts of God.
Our failure to act with respect to a breach by you or others does not waive our right to act with respect to subsequent or similar breaches. We do not guarantee we will take action against all breaches of these Terms.
If a court of competent jurisdiction finds that any provision of these Terms is invalid or unenforceable, in whole or in part, under any law, such provision or part thereof shall to that extent be deemed not to form part of these Terms but the legality, validity and enforceability of the other provisions in these Terms shall not be affected. In that event, the parties shall replace the illegal, invalid or unenforceable provision or part thereof with a provision or part thereof that is legal, valid and enforceable and that has, to the greatest extent possible, a similar effect as the illegal, invalid or unenforceable provision or part thereof, given the contents and purpose of these Terms.
Any provisions of these Terms, the performance of which by either or both parties, or by their sense and context, are intended to survive, will survive the completion, expiration, termination or cancellation of these Terms.
We may, in our sole discretion, update these Terms to, for example, reflect changes to our practice or to the law. Please review the Terms regularly. If you do not agree to the modified Terms, you should discontinue your access or use of Websites or Services. Your continued use of the Websites or Services shall mean that you accept those changes. Any revised Terms shall supersede all previous Terms.
