In consideration of the privileges and benefits of membership, .Cocoonity shall charge membership fees for the service(s) you have signed up to. Membership fees are paid monthly and are due in advance of the membership period that the fees cover. Failure to pay membership fees for any chosen service when due may result in the suspension/termination of your membership. Information on the current different payment plans for the membership available and their benefits and costs are found here.  

 

.Cocoonity uses a third party payment processor to assist it in processing your personally identifiable payment information securely. Such third party processors’ use of your personal information is governed by their respective terms of Use and privacy policies. Payments are currently processed and managed using multiple providers, which include the payment gateway Stripe. See Stripe’s Privacy Policy and Services Agreement

 

.Cocoonity reserves the right to adjust pricing through discounts on an individual or community-wide level, as well as to offer occasional discount-like offerings such as “one month free,” which may or may not be tied to timing of sign-ups or perceived community-wide value of a particular member. 

 

.Cocoonity may change the amount and frequency of required membership fees payments and payment terms at any time and may, in its sole discretion, accept full members without requiring fees or a formal application, with or without notice to you and without liability. Membership is personal and non-transferable and members must not share their membership benefits with any other person(s). 

  

For each Masterclass you have participated during the time of membership you would need to be subscribed to the Masterclasses service for 6 months. For example if you have participated in 3 Masterclasses then your minimum subscription period is 3x6=18 months.  

 

You may unsubscribe from the service(s) at any time during the membership period prior to the start of a new membership period with the exception of active participation in the Masterclasses service. By unsubscribing from all the services you will also lose your membership rights. 

 

Membership fees paid are nonrefundable. Memberships are automatically renewed unless terminated prior to the start of a new membership period.   

 

Please note that when you subscribe to the first service then this day of a month becomes your monthly membership payment date and all future payments will be deducted from your credit card on that day. This also means that if you subscribe to the next service then at the time of this new subscription no payment is deducted from your credit card but instead the next payment date proportional time for previous month plus full subscription fee for upcoming month will be deducted at the same time. 

 

When you cancel all subscriptions to our services then your membership, and your current membership cycle ends: 

  • You will no longer have access to any of .Cocoonity membership privileges (including but not limited to the digital community, services, mentoring, members-only emails, and more);  

  • You may however continue to have access to .Cocoonity blog, monthly newsletters, and any other .Cocoonity non-member offerings. 

  

Once you have cancelled subscription, and assuming there is no conflict of interest (to be decided at .Cocoonity’s discretion): 

  • You will continue to have access to the service until the end of the month for which you already paid. 

  • You can re-subscribe but we do not guarantee that the same subscription fees can be applied. 

  • If your subscription is auto-renewed, unintentionally, and you let us know within 7 days via email to legal@contriber.com and you also unsubscribe from the service using .Cocoonity App then we will give you a full refund and cancel your subscription for the specific service. 

  • If your subscriptions renewal does not go through, and is not updated within 3 days, we will view this as an unsubscribe for the services. We will send you an email to notify you when this happens, and highlight what actions are necessary to maintain your subscriptions.
