(AKA the legal fine print that every responsible adult reads. Right?)
BY VISITING SARAFRANDINA.COM YOU ARE CONSENTING TO OUR TERMS & CONDITIONS.
The terms “we”, “us”, “our” “SFS” and “Sara Frandina Strategies” refers to Sara Frandina Strategies, LLC. The term the “Site” refers to sarafrandina.com and all sites connected with Sara Frandina Strategies, LLC. The term “user,” “you” and “your” refers to site visitors, customers and any other users of the site. (That’s you.)
sarafrandina.com provides a website where users can read articles on copywriting, conversion optimization, and general business ownership, and a service where users may purchase copywriting (the “Service”).
Use of sarafrandina.com, including all materials presented herein and all online services provided by Sara Frandina Strategies, LLC (“SFS”), is subject to the following Terms and Conditions. These Terms and Conditions apply to all site visitors, customers, and all other users of the site. By using the Site or Service and/or ordering a product from the Site, you agree to these Terms and Conditions, without modification, and acknowledge reading them.
Use of the Site + Service
To access or use the Site, you must be 18 years or older and have the requisite power and authority to enter into these Terms and Conditions. Children under the age of 18 are prohibited from using the Site. (Sorry, kids…maybe go play outside?)
Information provided on the Site and in the Service related to copywriting, conversion optimization, general business ownership and other information are subject to change. SFS makes no representation or warranty that the information provided, regardless of its source (the “Content”), is accurate, complete, reliable, current or error-free. SFS disclaims all liability for any inaccuracy, error or incompleteness in the Content.
In order to use the Service, you may be required to provide information about yourself including your name, email address, username and password and other personal information. You agree that any registration information you give to SFS will always be accurate, correct and up to date. You must not impersonate someone else or provide account information or an email address other than your own.
You may use the Site and Service for lawful purposes only. Your account must not be used for any illegal or unauthorized purpose. You must not, in the use of the Service, violate any laws in your jurisdiction.
You agree to be financially responsible for all purchases made by you or someone acting on your behalf through the Site. You agree to use the Site and to purchase services or products through the Site for legitimate, non-commercial purposes only.
You shall not post or transmit through the Site any material which violates or infringes the rights of others, or which is threatening, abusive, defamatory, libelous, invasive of privacy or publicity rights, vulgar, obscene, profane or otherwise objectionable, contains injurious formulas, recipes, or instructions, which encourages conduct that would constitute a criminal offense, give rise to civil liability or otherwise violate any law.
Refusal of Service
SFS reserves the right to refuse service to any order, person or entity without obligation to assign reason for doing so. (We can’t predict the future, after all.) SFS may at any time change or discontinue any aspect or feature of the Site or Service.
We will email you to confirm the placement of your order and with details concerning product or service delivery. In the event that there is an error in this email confirmation, it is your responsibility to inform us as soon as possible.
If you have signed up for an online class or workshop, confirmation that we have received your order and payment does not constitute acceptance into the class or workshop. We will email you separately to confirm that you have been accepted into the class or workshop.
If you have submitted a deposit or payment in full for a service, SFS has the exclusive right to deny service if deemed necessary. If service is denied, a refund will be provided in full.
Cancellations, Refunds & Returns
Here’s the scoop-a-loop: All digital product sales are final due to the nature of downloadable files and your irrevocable access to them once they’ve been delivered. (Once they’re yours, they’re yours – yay!) If you’re on the fence about whether or not something would be a good fit for you, shoot us an email us to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll give you our best opinion. (Maybe grab a coffee, glass of wine, or craft beer — because they’re better — and read the blog, first, to make sure you + Sara Frandina Strategies = meant to be friends.)
We endeavor to describe and display the Service as accurately as possible. While we try to be as clear as possible in explaining the Service, please do not accept that the Site is entirely accurate, current, or error-free. (I am human, after all.) From time to time SFS may correct errors in pricing and descriptions, because there may not have been enough coffee consumed the day something was published. SFS reserves the right to refuse or cancel any order with an incorrect price listing.
Material You Submit to the Site
You shall not upload, post or otherwise make available on the Site any artwork, photos or other materials (collectively “Materials”) protected by copyright, trademark or other proprietary right without the express written permission of the owner of the copyright, trademark or other proprietary right. The burden of determining that any Materials are not so protected rests entirely with you. You shall be liable for any damage resulting from any infringement of copyrights, trademarks, or other proprietary rights, or any other harm resulting from such a submission and shall indemnify SFS from any claim against SFS resulting from your posting of Materials to the site. For all Materials submitted by you to the Site, you automatically represent or warrant that you have the authority to use and distribute the Materials, and that the use or display of the Materials will not violate any laws, rules, regulations or rights of third parties.
SFS reserves the right to remove from the site any Materials submitted by you that it deems inappropriate for the site or that appears to violate these terms and conditions.
Intellectual Property Rights to Your Materials
SFS does not claim ownership of Material you supply to SFS. However, the act of posting Material to the site conveys an irrevocable, worldwide license to SFS to use and distribute the posted Material in connection with SFS’s website and any related SFS publications. You retain copyright ownership and any other rights you may rightfully hold in any content that you submit through the Service. By submitting Material to SFS, you agree to hold SFS harmless from and against all claims, liabilities and expenses arising out of any potential or actual copyright or trademark misappropriation or infringement claimed against you.

Simply put? Please don’t steal any of the content found here and reposition it to sell as your own. Your mother surely taught you better.
The purpose of this website is to be educational. There are a lot of ideas here, and there are also a lot of suggestions for tools, websites, and advice on copywriting, conversion optimization, and running a business. Some of the links to these tools and websites are regular links. And some of these links are links that, if you click them and purchase, I might get a commission in exchange. Please note that if I’m recommending something, it’s only because I think it’s a great tool or idea — not because of any kickbacks. (But the kickbacks do help pay for books + coffee. So, win/win.)
SFS may, at any time, amend these Terms and Conditions. Such amendments are effective immediately upon notice to you by us posting the new Terms and Conditions on this Site. Any use of the Site or Service by you after being notified means you accept these amendments. We reserve the right to update any portion of our Site and Service, including these Terms and Conditions at any time. We will post the most recent versions to the Site and list the effective dates on the pages of our Terms and Conditions.
Limitation of Liability
You agree that under no circumstances shall we be liable for direct, indirect, incidental, consequential, special, punitive, exemplary, or any other damages arising out of your use of the Site or Service.

The foregoing applies even if SFS has been advised of the possibility of or could have foreseen the damages. In those states that do not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for the damages, our liability is limited to the fullest possible extent permitted by law. In no event shall SFS’s cumulative liability to you exceed the total purchase price of the Service you have purchased from SFS, and if no purchase has been made by you SFS’s cumulative liability to you shall not exceed $100.

You shall indemnify and hold us harmless from and against any and all losses, damages, settlements, liabilities, costs, charges, assessments and expenses, as well as third party claims and causes of action, including, without limitation, attorneys’ fees, arising out of any breach by you of any of these Terms and Conditions, or any use by you of the Site or Service. You shall provide us with such assistance, without charge, as we may request in connection with any such defense, including, without limitation, providing us with such information, documents, records and reasonable access to you, as we deem necessary.
