NO GUARANTEES. The sole intention of the Company, through the Program and Site, is to provide educational materials and coaching on the topic of heartbreak, emotional maturity, confidence, grief, and overcoming limiting beliefs. The statements and strategies offered in the Program are based on the opinions, experiences, and coaching strategies of the Company. Your level of success in attaining results is dependent upon a number of factors beyond the Company’s control, including your level of personal development, knowledge, ability, dedication to the process, personality, and mindset. The Company makes no guarantees whatsoever that you will achieve any results.
You further understand and agree that you are fully responsible for your well-being throughout the Program. You understand that the Program materials, Coach’s comments and ideas are to be construed as suggestions and information only, and that you ultimately have full responsibility for making informed decisions and giving your informed consent. You agree that you will not attempt to hold the Company liable for any results, or lack of results, that you experience.
The Program is offered for information purposes only and no portion of it is intended to substitute for professional advice, including but not limited to medical, psychiatric, psychological, or behavioral advice and/or treatment, and you may not rely on the Program to provide such advice or treatment.
If you require medical, psychiatric, and/or psychological care, you should retain the services of a licensed medical professional acting in his or her capacity as such.
The Program may include views or recommendations of third parties, which do not necessarily reflect the views of the Company or indicate its commitment to a particular course of action.
Testimonials published by us are independent and genuine, but they do not represent a guarantee or warranty of similar results.
COACH/CLIENT RELATIONSHIP AND RESPONSIBILITIES OF THE PARTIES
The relationship between the Coach and you is co-creative, meaning we are equal partners in the coaching process.

•Coach will provide individual guidance to group participants based on information provided to her.

•You agree to watch and/or listen to all video content provided via email or in slack and will complete all worksheets assigned during the Program.

professional guidance for such matters, should they arise, independent of the coaching
Throughout the working relationship, the Coach will engage in direct and personal conversations. The Client can count on the Coach to be honest and straightforward in asking questions and making requests. The Client understands that the power of the coaching relationship can be granted only by the Client, and the Client agrees to do just that: have the coaching relationship be powerful. If the Client believes the coaching is not working as desired, the Client will communicate that belief and take action to return the power to the coaching relationship.
CONFIDENTIALITY. The Coach-Client relationship is not legally bound by confidentiality. Nevertheless, Coach agrees to keep all information about the Coach-Client relationship strictly confidential except in very rare circumstances where disclosure is required by law, for example when a court might issue a subpoena for the file or information, or if Client threatens to harm himself or herself, or others. Client acknowledges that Coach / Client communications are not covered by any doctor-patient privilege or other privilege. Your name will not be disclosed by Company without your consent. You may use a screen name or pseudonym instead of your actual name for your participation in group coaching sessions and public posts on the Site.

Confidential information does not include information that:
(a) was in the Company or Coach’s possession prior to the formation of this contract;
(b) is generally known to the public or in the Participant’s circle of friends and family and co-workers;
(c) the Company or Coach may be required by law to disclose.
Dorothy AB Johnson, and its employees, agents, or representatives will not at any time or in any manner, either directly or indirectly, use for the personal benefit of Dorothy AB Johnson, or divulge, disclose, or communicate in any manner, any information that is proprietary to Client. Dorothy AB Johnson and its employees, agents, and representatives will protect such information and treat it as strictly confidential.
This provision will continue to be effective after the termination of this Contract.
