MEMBERSHIP TERMS AND CONDITIONS
Please read these conditions carefully, as they apply to all transactions between us on our Website and can only be waived or varied in writing by us. By purchasing an online membership, you’re telling us that you’ve read, understood and agreed to these conditions. If you have any questions or concerns about our conditions or Website, or any purchase you make through the Website, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.
- Neurodivergent Resource Library
At The Neurodivergent Co. we are passionate about the celebration of neurodivergence. We’re excited to deliver an educational platform and resource library on our subscription-based Website so that individuals, families and professionals can learn about neurodivergence as not only a pathology or a medical diagnosis, but as an identity and a culture.
We offer a range of membership plans for purchase on our Website. You agree to pay us the membership price listed on the Website. Payments are due monthly in advance. Unless otherwise stated, all prices are in Australian dollars (AUD) and inclusive of GST, if applicable. We may vary our prices from time to time. You agree and acknowledge that we may do so at any time on notice, and that such notice is given by us posting the updated price on our Website.
Please note that when you purchase an online membership through the Website, no agreement is formed until we process and accept your order and send you a confirmation. You acknowledge and agree that your payment in full in cleared funds is a condition of this Agreement, any breach of which will entitle us to terminate this Agreement immediately.
If a request for payment is returned or denied by your financial institution or is unpaid by you for any other reason, then you’ll be liable for any associated costs incurred by us, including banking fees and charges. We may also immediately stop your access to the platform unless and until we receive your payment in full.
If you fail to pay us a monthly subscription fee, or if an insolvency event (for example, if you commit an act of bankruptcy or become insolvent) occurs in relation to you, we may suspend your membership, require payment in a particular form or terminate this Agreement.
We currently accept all major credit and debit cards and use Stripe and PayPal to process payments on our Website. We may add or remove payment methods at our absolute discretion.
In making a payment, you warrant to us that you’ve read and agreed to the terms of any third-party payment gateway or processor or credit provider (such as PayPal), which are available on their respective websites. You understand that these services are provided by third parties and are made available to you on our Website for convenience only. We’re not responsible for any issues, loss or damage arising out of those facilities. If you have an issue with a third-party provider on our Website, please contact them directly.
Please note that if The Neurodivergent Co. suspects suspicious or fraudulent activity (in its sole discretion) in making the order (for example, unauthorised use of a credit card), The Neurodivergent Co. may refuse to accept the order and deny acceptance of the Customer’s payment.
- Discounts and Coupon Codes
We may offer discounts or coupon codes from time to time. Such discounts and coupon codes are subject to conditions stated on the Website and the conditions set out in this clause. If there is an inconsistency between the two sets of terms, the terms relating to the specific discount code on the Website will be the applicable terms.
Discounts and coupon codes are not available in conjunction with any other offer (for example, if we have two promotions on offer at the same time, you can only apply one discount or coupon code to a purchase, not both).
Discounts and coupon codes are available for the stated time, or else for a period of seven (7) days from the date that the offer was first made, or until stocks last (whichever occurs first).
Unless we specify otherwise in our offer, discounts and coupon codes are available on full priced goods only.
Coupon codes are non-transferable and are not redeemable for cash under any circumstances.
We reserve the right to revoke any discount offer or coupon code at any time without notice.
We’ll need you to provide us with your details when making an account, including your name, address, email address and payment details. Once we’ve received your payment and confirmed your membership order, you’ll receive an email with your login details.
