As stipulated by law, we cannot and do not make any guarantees about your ability to get results or earn any money with our ideas, information, tools or strategies.

11. Permitted Users
The Sites are not directed to children under the age of 18 and we will not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under 18. By accessing our Sites, you confirm you are at least 18 years of age or older.
Bottega Zero Waste reserves the right to admit students into a certain course, without the need to explain the reasons why such selection has been made.
We are entitled to block access to the course, or to the Sites in general, to those users who infringe the T&Cs or those of third parties, whether in terms of personal data, copyright, industrial property or any other applicable rules.
12. Payment Methods
You may be required to process a payment to access one of the courses or memberships on our Sites. You have the option to pay with your credit, debit card, PayPalⓇ, or even Apple PayⓇ and Google PayⓇ depending on the instructions provided by Teachable, Inc -- the platform used to host our courses and materials.
Teachable, Inc and their affiliated payment gateways will be solely responsible for holding, storing, and encrypting bank details and any other billing information provided by you, as these do not become known to Bottega Zero Waste at any time. In the event of any problem related to payments or misuse of this type of data, you may be required to contact Teachable, Inc directly. Bottega Zero Waste is not responsible and accountable for any data leaks, data or economic loss, and by your use of the Sites, you agree not to attempt to hold us liable for any such loss or damage, at any time, under any circumstance.
13. Payments, Charges, and Access
Bottega Zero Waste reserves the right to add, update, or remove payment options on all the digital products and services listed on our Sites, and to add any applicable setup fees at checkout, at any time without notification.
Our courses, such as Soap Making for Zero Wasters, Zero Waste Haircare, and Zero Waste Make-up, operate under a one-time payment option. Once you're enrolled, you get lifetime access to the course, its modules, lectures, and materials immediately.
Our memberships, such as the Make Your Own Academy, typically have only two pricing options: a one-time payment, and a payment plan plan consisting of recurring charges. By enrolling in one of these memberships, you authorise Teachable, Inc to automatically collect payments every month on the card provided at the time of registration, or changed thereafter, until the end of the payment plan. At the time of purchase you lock the price specified at checkout for the lifetime of your membership. Once you're enrolled, you get access to the plan and its first lecture section immediately. In line with the concept of academy and educational programs, Bottega Zero Waste chose to release (i.e. drip) published lectures and materials on a specific amount of days after a student enrols. This means that you will not be able to access a lecture section until it has been "dripped" to you. If a lecture section is to be dripped on a specified date, or a specified amount of days after enrolment, it will be released at midnight/0:00 UTC (Universal Time Coordinated) of the specified date/amount of days after enrolment. Email announcements, if enabled, will be sent out at 3:00PM/15:00 UTC (15 hours after the lecture section drips).
If you purchase one of our products from the UK or a EU country, the applicable digital VAT or tax is added automatically to the sale price at checkout. If you intend to purchase a course or membership as a business entity and have a valid VAT ID, you may enter your VAT ID on the checkout page. This will ensure that the transaction is processed as a sale to a business entity. If you are located in the EU and you do not enter a valid VAT ID, the transaction will be processed as a sale to a consumer and VAT will be charged. The reverse charge rule applies to most sales to a business entity. If the reverse charge rule applies, VAT will not be charged. However, per intra-community supply rules, if the supplier and the student are established in the same EU country, VAT will be charged. The receipt will note whether the transaction is subject to reverse charge or the intra-community supply of services, as applicable. Note that you must include the two-digit country code when entering in your VAT ID at checkout.
Once the payment has been made, an electronic invoice is sent to the email provided.
Immediately after you formalise your enrolment, you will receive an email which includes all the relevant steps to access the Site, and if applicable, to grab your "bonuses".
To access the Site you will need to use your credentials, including your personal password. You are solely responsible for the custody of this data.
Bottega Zero Waste reserves the right to prohibit or remove access to the course, if at any time, an user violates these T&Cs or any other policies of the Sites.
In the event Bottega Zero Waste decided to offer any discount or promotion, this would only apply at the time of purchase. Such promotions may be valid for a limited time or for a limited number of clients. Bottega Zero Waste reserves the right to decide when a promotion or discount should be given, and to review their terms at any time without notification. The demand for a retroactive discount or promotion will not be valid, nor will the difference be returned.
Bottega Zero Waste is not responsible for the promotions or discounts of products and services for those third parties, which are advertised on our Sites, social networks, materials, or newsletters. Any query or controversy must be dealt directly with the third party who has offered such promotion or discount.
16. Student Refund Policy
Bottega Zero Waste works hard to provide only quality products and services and to meet the growing needs of our students. As a result, we want you to be happy with all our courses and memberships.
Therefore, we offer a 14-Day Money Back Guarantee for each of our products (only limited to courses and memberships) regardless of its cost. If you are not completely satisfied with the product you purchased from us, and you have a valid reason for it, you should notify us within 13 days from the date of the purchase to allow us the time to receive your request and process the refund.
Please note: we do not accept the followings as reasons to provide a refund:
- if you have changed your mind purely because you want the money back
- if you have completed more than 20% of the course, which means you have consumed the content and clicked on the "complete" button
Additionally, before asking for a refund, we would encourage you to make the following:
- Query our Q&A page, or take a look at our cheat-sheets, PDFs, and templates. You might be able to find an answer that helps you better use the product to your satisfaction.
- Visit our private Facebook group. Perhaps others have been in the same situation and you might find a solution there that works for you as well. Moreover, our support team provides answers to many questions.
- Contact us at [email protected] to see if there is anything further we can do or try. Our support team does its best to solve any issue and to answer any query you may have.
If the above solutions do not work for you and you already made up your mind to request money back, simply send a formal request to [email protected] within 30 days of your purchase and we will process a refund for you. When requesting to return your money please let us know the reason you wish to stop using our product and service, and if there is anything we can do to help.
If you cancel a payment plan on your own, you agree to be unenrolled automatically after your current billing cycle ends. The moment your payment plan is cancelled, you will lose access to the course and its content. For these reasons, Bottega Zero Waste makes downloadable files available for part of the content in the course so that you can keep them on your computer or hard drive even if you are no longer a member of the Site. These downloadable files must be obtained during the term of the subscription and at no time will they be sent by other means after the cancellation of your enrolment in the courses or memberships.
If your credit or debit card fails for a recurring payment (e.g. payments for subscription or payment plans), then your payment will be retried on the 3rd, 8th, and 15th days after the first attempt. If you do not update your billing information at that time, you will automatically be unenrolled from the course. In fact, Teachable, Inc reserves the right to cancel the subscriptions and unenroll users who do not complete the payment of their monthly renewal.
