Online Healer Training Terms & Conditions
Online Healer Training Terms and Conditions
In these general terms and conditions (the “Terms”) the words “we”, “us” and “our” are a reference to Alana Fairchild Pty Ltd (ACN 613 359 952). These Terms apply to our courses, workshops and other training programs which we may offer from time to time, including Saraswati Healing™, Saraswati Healing™ Tantric Flow™, The Kuan Yin Transmission™, Rosa Mystica and Ma’s Kitchen short courses (“Courses”), and any online forums, communities and associated links, reference materials and training materials (including MP3s, videos, PDFs, music albums and others) (together with the “Courses”, the “Training Materials”).
Acceptance of the Terms
Upon registration for any Courses, or the purchase, download or use of any Training Materials you agree to be bound by these Terms. Your access to and use of the Courses and Training Materials is conditioned on your acceptance of these Terms.
By accepting these terms you agree to pay the Course fees (including GST) for the Course using the accepted payment method via the payment gateway.
You accept that you are required to pay the full amount of the Course fees even if you do not complete the Course.
Registering as a Business for Tax Purposes
When registering for a Course, you may, if you wish, register in your business name for tax purposes. You will be automatically emailed a receipt from the payment gateway upon payment. If you wish to receive your end-of-course certificate in your personal name, rather than business name, upon completion of your Course, you can add those details at that time.
Copyright and Intellectual Property
The Courses and Training Materials, all content on Alana Fairchild’s social media platforms and websites, all published materials, trademarks and implied trademarks, and any other materials you may obtain in connection with those items is our intellectual property (“Intellectual Property”) and will, at all times, remain our property and subject to copyright and other intellectual property rights under Australian law, international conventions and other laws. We expressly reserve all copyright and trademark in all the content of the Courses and the Training Materials, and we reserve the right to take action against you if you breach that copyright.
The Courses and Training Materials are provided to you (whether supplied by us or purchased by you) for your personal use only, and only for educational purposes. You are prohibited from using the materials for a commercial benefit, or to transfer or resell these materials in any way, unless you obtain express permission from us, such as under our practitioner’s license (the “Practitioner’s License”), where you are authorised to reproduce some materials in particular circumstances as expressly taught by us in the program.
All Training Materials and Courses are subject to change.
Lifetime Access to Training Materials
You have lifetime access to Training Materials once you have paid for your course in full. Upon completion of the training, you retain access to these resources and to any evolution in the teachings as new offerings are added. You agree that regardless of when you access the Training Materials they remain for your use only, and acknowledge and agree that downloading, purchasing or receiving any materials does not imply that they can be made public or shared with anyone else.
Lifetime access is subject to appropriate use of the materials. Access can be revoked at any time, at our discretion, for the misuse of materials. On rare occasions we’ve been required to remove participants from our community, courses or forums. If you are removed from our community, Courses or forums, your lifetime access to the training materials is revoked at that time as well. We reserve the right to remove you from our community, Courses or forums at any time.
As part of your Course, and upon graduation, you will have the opportunity to participate in modality-specific forums, graduate forums or other online community groups. You agree that these have been created to give you the opportunity to explore your chosen modality more deeply, as well as opportunities to join community hosted live events and community-based planetary healing chains.
You agree that at all times you will communicate and engage with other community members, and with our team, with consideration, empathy and respect. We reserve the right to remove you from any of our forums at any time for any reason and will do so if those values are not met. There is no refund on membership and/or course fees to date should we need to remove you from the program and/or forum(s).
Without limiting the acts constituting breach of copyright as set out above, the Training Materials may not be copied (unless for your own research or study), performed, adapted, modified or published in any form, shared, communicated over any medium, or distributed in the original or an adapted or modified form by any means, nor used for any public presentation or performance, class or workshop, nor may they be incorporated into any training program, other than as expressly permitted under the Practitioner’s License.
Enrolment in the Courses or access to the Training Materials does not grant you ownership of the Training Materials nor have we waived our Intellectual Property rights. If you obtain a Practitioner’s License to use the Training Materials commercially, you agree to acknowledge Alana Fairchild as the author of the material and we ask to give credit for the source of the work and use it only as you have been trained to use it.
Training Others in the Modality Techniques
You acknowledge and agree that you will not attempt to train others in any Training Materials or any of the modalities or techniques contained in the Training Materials, or deliver any of Alana Fairtchild’s training in this method, unless you have been authorised by us to specifically do so. These actions would constitute a breach of copyright, and we reserve the right to take action against you if you breach that copyright.
We have not authorised any other person to train the trainers other than Alana herself, and any other trainers that assist her will only be those that Alana has personally and expressly selected for the task, operating with her full knowledge and conscious permission, under her guidance. We ask that you refer people to the official program for online training with Alana.
Becoming a Licensed Practitioner
If you are interested in practicing any of Alana Fairchild’s modalities professionally as a healer, you may apply to become a Licensed Practitioner after graduation. We grant approval as a Licensed practitioner only once you have completed the full training in a specific modality (including assessment to our satisfaction, and through additional bridging work at our discretion if we feel it is required) and completed the relevant application and agreement forms for licensing and paid your license fee.
In order to become a Licensed Practitioner you must also maintain a Graduate Membership. The fee for the Graduate Membership is USD 111 annually. However, your one-time payment of USD 499 upon graduation from the course includes both your Lifetime Practitioner License (USD 388) and your current year’s Graduate Membership fee (USD 111). Each subsequent year you will only be required to maintain your Graduate Membership at USD 111 in order to continue practicing in your licensed modality.
The lifetime license fee of USD 388 gives you our official approval as a Licensed Practitioner and facilitator of the modality. It grants you permission to use the Training Materials and our trademarks solely in accordance with the Practitioner’s License, provided you maintain a valid license with us by honouring these Terms and the terms of the Practitioner’s License. To the extent of any inconsistency, the Practitioner’s License prevails.
Before we grant a Practitioner License, we have an ethical and legal requirement to approve an assessment from the graduate. We want to ensure that graduates seeking to become practitioners have sufficiently understood and practiced the modality techniques essential for professional practice at a high standard. This assessment is due at the end of the modality training, with an additional two week grace period. By entering into these Terms, you acknowledge and agree to that requirement and that timing.
By accepting these Terms and Conditions you agree to honour your assessment due date, subject to the exceptions in this section. If there is any issue with completing your assessment on time, you agree to email the Training Angel immediately at [email protected].
You accept and agree that marketing under your Practitioner’s License is solely your responsibility. Though your active Practitioner’s License entitles you to be listed on our publicly searchable online listing with details about you and which of Alana’s modalities you offer, this is solely for the benefit of consumers who wish to know which businesses we approve for affiliation under the relevant trademark.
If you enter a Practitioner’s License, as part of your licensing with us, you will receive an electronic marketing kit with a professionally designed logo for your use. We acknowledge that you are in no way obliged to market yourself using the suggestions within the kit, or at all.
You acknowledge and agree that you may use these promotional tools only for your work as a practitioner of the modality for which you are licensed, and agree that you will not associate the trademark or marketing materials with your work beyond that licensed modality. You further agree not to claim a general endorsement by Alana of your work, other than the general acknowledgement that you have successfully completed the training program leading to the granting of the Practitioner’s License.
In all circumstances, you agree that you are free to market your business as you wish, but that you will only use our trademark and modality techniques and training as set out by these Terms and the terms of the Practitioner’s License.
Official Alana Fairchild Designs and Material
When you become a Licensed Practitioner, you may receive official Alana Fairchild materials and graphic design templates for limited use within your business. You acknowledge and agree that you are solely responsible for all costs related to the printing and distribution of those items within your practice. You also agree to use good quality, high density premium paper – at least 170 gsm – in the printing of approved certificates for distribution to any modality workshop participants.
Insurance and Legalities
While Saraswati Healing™ and The Kuan Yin Transmission™ modalities are recognised by the International Institute Complementary Therapies (IICT) and are approved insurable modalities with AON in Australia, we cannot guarantee that you will have legal permission and/or be able to obtain insurance to practice the modality in all its possible applications in your unique situation or specific place of residence.
You acknowledge that the availability of any professional insurance or legal permission to practice any of Alana Fairchild’s modalities or spiritual healing generally may vary considerably from place to place and that we cannot guarantee that you will be able to obtain insurance or meet the legalities necessary to practice in your jurisdiction.
By entering into these Terms you further agree that nothing within can be construed as legal advice to you. We recommend that you seek qualified legal counsel for advice on the laws and regulations that relate to you specifically, well in advance of proceeding with your professional practice.
Cancellation of Your License
If you wish to cancel your practitioner’s license for any reason, you may do so by contacting us at [email protected] as soon as possible.
In the unlikely event of a breach of our practitioner code of ethics or the terms of our Practitioner’s License, we reserve the right to cancel a Practitioner License.
Whilst we take care to deliver a quality program responsibly, by enrolling in the Courses, accessing the Training Materials, becoming a Licensed Practitioner and/or by becoming a forum member for a Course and/or community membership program, you acknowledge and agree that our liability to you is limited, to the extent available at law, to a refund of the cost of the training, or to perform the training again, at our option.
You further agree to indemnify and release us and our agents, including Alana Fairchild, from any claims, demands, and causes of action for:
- a) death,
- b) physical or mental injury (including aggravation, acceleration or recurrence of such an injury);
- c) contraction, aggravation or acceleration of disease; or
- d) the coming into existence, the aggravation, acceleration or recurrence of any other condition (including disease), circumstance, occurrence, form of behaviour, course of conduct or state of affairs in relation to you that is or may be harmful or disadvantageous to you or the community, as a result of your participation and enrolment in the Courses or access of the Training Materials, and you agree to indemnify Alana Fairchild Pty Ltd and its agents against any third party claim in respect of the above.
