Terms of Service:

The following terms and conditions govern all use of the CopyHackers.com website and all content, services and products available at or through the website (“The Website”). The Website is owned and operated by Wiebe Marketing Ltd., doing business as Copy Hackers (“COPY HACKERS”). The Website is offered subject to your acceptance without modification of all of the terms and conditions contained herein and all other operating rules, policies (including, without limitation, COPY HACKERS’s Privacy Policy) and procedures that may be published from time to time on this Site by COPY HACKERS (collectively, the “Agreement”).

Please read this Agreement carefully before accessing or using the Website. By accessing or using any part of the web site, you agree to become bound by the terms and conditions of this agreement.

Your CopyHackers.com Account. If you create an account on the Website, you are responsible for maintaining the security of your account and materials, and you are fully responsible for all activities that occur under the account and any other actions taken in connection with the account or materials. You must not describe or assign links or content to your account in a misleading or unlawful manner, including in a manner intended to trade on the name or reputation of others.

COPY HACKERS will not be liable for any acts or omissions by You, including those resulting from your negligence and including any damages of any kind incurred as a result of such acts or omissions.

Responsibility of Contributors. If you respond to a blog post, post material to the Website, post links on the Website, or otherwise make (or allow any third party to make) material available by means of the Website (any such material, “Content”), you are entirely responsible for the content of, and any harm resulting from, that Content. That is the case regardless of whether the Content in question constitutes text, graphics, an audio file, or computer software. By making Content available, you represent and warrant that:

  • the downloading, copying and use of the Content will not infringe the proprietary rights, including but not limited to the copyright, patent, trademark or trade secret rights, of any third party;

  • you have fully complied with any third-party licenses relating to the Content, and have done all things necessary to successfully pass through to end users any required terms;
  • the Content does not contain or install any viruses, worms, malware, Trojan horses or other harmful or destructive content;
  • the Content is not spam, is not machine- or randomly-generated, and does not contain unethical or unwanted commercial content designed to drive traffic to third party sites or boost the search engine rankings of third party sites, or to further unlawful acts (such as phishing) or mislead recipients as to the source of the material (such as spoofing);
  • the Content is not pornographic, does not contain threats or incite violence towards individuals or entities, and does not violate the privacy or publicity rights of any third party;
  • your Content is not getting advertised via unwanted electronic messages such as spam links on newsgroups, email lists, other blogs and web sites, and similar unsolicited promotional methods;
  • your Content is not named in a manner that misleads your readers into thinking that you are another person or company. For example, your Content’s title or author name is not the name of a well-known title other than your work or a person other than yourself or a company other than your own; and
  • you have, in the case of Content that includes computer code, accurately categorized and/or described the type, nature, uses and effects of the materials, whether requested to do so by COPY HACKERS or otherwise.

By submitting Content to COPY HACKERS for inclusion on our Website(s), you grant COPY HACKERS a world-wide, royalty-free, and non-exclusive license to reproduce, modify, adapt and publish the Content solely for the purpose of displaying, distributing and promoting your Content and our Website. If you delete Content, COPY HACKERS will use reasonable efforts to remove it from the Website, but you acknowledge that caching or references to the Content may not be made immediately unavailable. Without limiting any of those representations or warranties, COPY HACKERS has the right (though not the obligation) to, in COPY HACKERS’s sole discretion
(i) refuse or remove any content that, in COPY HACKERS’s reasonable opinion, violates any COPY HACKERS policy or is in any way harmful or objectionable, or
(ii) terminate or deny access to and use of the Website to any individual or entity for any reason, in COPY HACKERS’s sole discretion.

Fees and Payment. By completing the cart and checkout process for any product or number of products, you agree to pay COPY HACKERS the fees indicated on our Website at the time of purchase in exchange for the product or service. This may be a one-time, monthly or annual fee; unless otherwise explicitly indicated on the Website, the default fee will be one-time. Payments will be processed on the day you purchase a product or service. COPY HACKERS reserves the right to change the payment terms and fees upon thirty (30) days prior written notice to you.

Refunds. COPY HACKERS offers a thirty-day (30-day) money back guarantee on purchases of ebooks and some courses made through CopyHackers.com and/or Training.CopyHackers.com using our cart and checkout service, which is supplied by third-party vendors. We warrant that we will refund the price that was charged to a Customer (less taxes or shipping and handling charges, if applicable) if and only if said customer requests a refund within 30 days or 60 days of receipt of payment, depending on the refund policy expressed at the time of purchase, by:
i. Making every reasonable effort to supply COPY HACKERS and Joanna Wiebe with the date-stamped receipt before the 30-day or 60-day period has ended
