2. DESCRIPTION OF SERVICE AND BILLING TERMS
A. Member Access and Benefits
TherapyTribe provides Member with access to:
- TherapyTribe Therapy Directory where Member can create a listing to advertise their practice to potential clients, consumers, and the general public. Members are not required to complete their directory profile application and advertise their practice. Having a directory profile is optional for all members.
- Opportunities to publish blogs/articles.
- Free Therapist Website and Hosting for active members of TherapyTribe Directory. Members have the option in My Account section to create and publish a website using the dashboard tools provided.
B. Membership with TherapyTribe
Membership with TherapyTribe begins when a new Member completes the registration process. Completion of the registration process is all that is required to become a Member and the attendant obligations of being a Member.
Immediately upon completion of the registration process, the Member has access to create their listing by providing and submitting professional details to publish their listing, and opportunities to publish blogs/articles and a website. It is the member’s responsibility to make use of the service and no refunds are permitted if the member does not make use of the service provided.
Membership with TherapyTribe is either month-to-month or year-to-year automatic recurring billing, depending on the selection made by Member during initial registration or during the update of their payment information. The membership fee for new Members is $29.95 (USD) per month OR $299 (USD) per year. The Member acknowledges that the fee and Terms of Service for the TherapyTribe Membership are subject to change, and that TherapyTribe reserves the right to revise rates and terms under this contract at any time.
Members may cancel their membership to TherapyTribe at any time without refund by completing the cancellation form found within the Billing Details section of their account section. The purpose of the cancellation form is to confirm identity and to gather helpful feedback; thus requests to cancel membership solely by email are not acceptable. If a Member cancels membership he or she will not be charged for the next scheduled recurring bill and all listings will be removed immediately. Absolutely no refunds or pro-rated amounts will be given to Members who cancel before their term of service expires. Absolutely no refunds or pro-rated amounts will be given to Members who chose not to renew their membership. Absolutely no refunds or pro-rated amounts will be given to Members for any reason whatsoever except in cases of Members who have referred another Member to TherapyTribe.
Member authorizes TherapyTribe to automatically charge the fee to Member’s credit card either one time per month or one time per 365 days, depending on their membership type, during the course of membership. Member acknowledges that TherapyTribe does not save or maintain any credit card information on the TherapyTribe server and instead uses Braintree Merchant Services to store credit card information and process credit card transactions via a secure and encrypted SSL page to ensure the highest safety for all transactions.
If and when a Member’s credit card declines the periodic membership fee, TherapyTribe’s system will continue to attempt the transaction on a daily basis. TherapyTribe will make every effort to contact the Member should the Member’s credit card decline. If a Member’s account is left unpaid TherapyTribe will keep the Member’s account active for up to 10 days from the time the Member’s membership dues transaction first failed. Members will continue to be responsible for paying their past due amount and any future past due amount that accrues, up to 10 days past due.
D. Referral Benefits
There is a “free month for every new Member you refer” offer which is extended to all TherapyTribe Members. Members can refer as many new Members to TherapyTribe as wanted and will receive one free month of membership for every referral which subsequently joins TherapyTribe. Take advantage of this offer by having the referred Member enter your first and last name in the “Referral” field during sign-up. To receive a free month of membership, the referred Member must enter your first and last name during their initial sign-up with TherapyTribe.
Members with month-to-month memberships who successfully refer a new Member to TherapyTribe will receive a free month added to their account – giving them the next month free. Members with annual memberships will receive a free month for every successful referral to TherapyTribe following the expiration of their annual membership. If you cancel your membership or no longer have a membership this offer is void and you will forfeit any earned free months.
