REFUND POLICY Please read this policy carefully as it governs how Enlightening Life OmniMedia, Inc., addresses the issue of product returns, refunds, and credit card chargebacks. By accessing a purchase, downloading a file, or interacting with this website and completing a purchase you are legally agreeing to this refund policy and to abide by it. Refunds must be manually processed and you will be charged an administrative fee of $50 to process a refund.

Returns Returns of any physical product are accepted only if the product is defective in some way. Each physical product shipped is inspected and warranted to be free from defects. In the event a product is defective, which is determined to be as described below for different product types that are sold on the Enlightening Life OmniMedia, Inc. websites(s):

CDs and digital products in hard copy format (not MP3 or downloads) a return is considered if  product does not play, is blank, or is damaged in shipment and rendered unplayable. Upon your emailed or written request, a new product will be shipped to you using our standard mailing processes (US first class domestic and international priority mail). We will only ship one replacement product for a defective product. If this still does not meet your satisfaction then your will be offered a digital version of the product for download or a credit to use towards another product in our store.

Digital products, which includes MP3 downloads and e-books, either individually or as part of a paid course or program, are not eligible for a refund under any circumstances.  If you are unable to download your product please email support@enlighteninglife.com because your download failed, you missed the download deadline, or you were unable to download the file. You will receive a temporary link for an additional, one-time download. We do not offer technical support for download products, other than basic download instructions for PC and MAC users. You should refer to your owner's guide for your personal digital media device, such as a phone, tablet, or ipad.

How refunds are administered  Refunds are provided in accordance with our stated refund terms and are processed within 3 to 5 business days of your request. The following policies govern refunds by product or service type:

Consultations:  Refunds for services such as individual consultations and readings are not provided under any circumstances. There are no exceptions to this policy.

Coaching packages: Refunds for multiple session coaching packages are pro-rated as follows:

  • If you wish to discontinue your 4 or 6 or longer session coaching  program and have completed one session, the then-current cost of a 1 hour consultation will be deducted from your refund for prepaid packages. For month to month payments, the then-current cost of a one hour individual intuitive session will be deducted from each unused package session plus a $50 administrative fee which we charge for manual processing of refunds.
  • If you have completed two sessions, the then-current cost of two 1-hour consultations will be deducted from your refund. For 3 session coaching packages, there will be no refund of unused sessions after the first session is completed.
  • If you have completed three or more sessions of a 4 or 6 session coaching package, no refund will be provided.
  • Your refund will include a minimum $50 administrative fee as refunds must be processed manually and involved a significant amount of administrative effort. Should the refund process require multiple emails, communication, and dealing with abusive client behavior, we reserve the right to charge a higher fee or refuse the refund altogether.

Programs:  Programs may  include audio and .pdf files, as well as individual and group coaching options. Once a program page has been accessed by the user, he/she is considered as having participated in the program. Any refund, if considered, will be prorated to reflect file access and downloads, as well as coaching services already delivered, as detailed in the "Coaching Packages" section above. The full cost of the audio/pdf portion of the program will be deducted from any refund, plus an administrative fee of not less than $50, at our discretion and depending on the amount of time and effort expended in processing client emails and the refund.

We do not offer full refunds at the full price of any purchased programs. This policy is not negotiable. Downloads are monitored by user IP address on our servers and proof of download will be provided to customer if requested. Once files are downloaded they are considered to be purchased and all refund policies for digital files apply.

Digital and media file purchases will not be refunded as they are available as instant downloads and delivered after purchase. This also applies to programs that include downloadable media files, such as audios, videos, and  .pdf documents, which are available to the purchaser for their use. Once a program is accessed and the files available and accessed, purchase has been completed and the customer has access to the files. Purchase is considered to be complete and refunds are not provided on materials that the customer has received. There are no exceptions to our refund policy as it applies to digital media.

Paid Webinars/Teleseminars:  Refunds for paid webinars or teleseminars are not provided under any circumstances. Calls are recorded and those are available to all purchasers. If you do not download the recording prior to its expiration, which is clearly stated in the teleclass and its accompanying materials, you may request that the file be sent to you electronically or in hard copy at an additional charge. You should send all such requests to support@enlighteninglife.com.

Multiple refund requests:  Customers who request two or more refunds for products or services will be barred from further purchases on our website. If a customer schedules multiple coaching or intuitive sessions, then cancels and requests a refund, that customer will no longer be allowed to purchase sessions. Processing refunds requires administrative and manual input and multiple refunds indicates a lack of commitment in the customer and we cannot accommodate the abuse of our administrative staff. While extraordinary circumstances are taken into consideration, we treat multiple refund requests as being an abuse of our resources and, after issuing the refund as per our stated guidelines, will bar that customer from using our website and purchasing our products and services.

CHARGEBACKS The charge that will appear on your credit card statement will be made to Enlightening Life OmniMedia, Inc.. If you place a chargeback with your credit card company (on purpose or by mistake) for any order including recurring orders that you placed and received, there will be a $75.00 research fee charged to your account upon receiving the chargeback by our merchant provider to cover our investigative expenses to prove that you did make the purchase.

THERE ARE NO EXCEPTIONS TO THIS POLICY If you do not remember making the purchase - call the number on your statement next to the charge BEFORE calling your bank or submit a support request at support@enlighteninglife.com. You may call us at the number posted on our website if you have questions about your purchase. Enlightening Life OmniMedia, Inc.  does not tolerate credit card fraud, and all fraud, without exception, will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.

In addition, we will pursue civil legal action seeking any loss of income related to the fraud, including business revenues, legal fees, research costs, employee down time, and loss of revenues. Enlightening Life OmniMedia, Inc. considers credit card chargebacks to be fraud if you have made no reasonable effort to work with us to resolve any problems with your purchase.

All chargebacks require extensive administrative time to process and take them away from our usual and customary matters of conducting normal business, as they are time intensive, therefore: You agree that if you, the buyer, choose to do business with Enlightening Life OmniMedia, Inc., and you file a chargeback with your credit card company, and you do not win the charge back argument, you agree to pay us $75 for our time spent responding to the credit card company to resolve this matter. We are obligated to respond to and resolve every chargeback.

You, the buyer authorize us to charge the amount of your purchase to your credit card. If this charge is rejected, Enlightening Life OmniMedia, Inc. will pursue legal action to recoup losses for our time associated with responding to the charge back in addition to any other fees explained above.

You agree to reimburse us or any representative we may appoint for any legal expenses your actions may make us incur. We take fraud seriously. If any provision of this Agreement is deemed illegal, invalid, or unenforceable, the remaining provisions shall remain in full force and effect. The waiver of a breach hereunder does not waive any other or subsequent breach. In the event that you win the charge back with your credit card company, and have not submitted a ticket to our support site prior to issuing a chargeback, Enlightening Life OmniMedia, Inc. will attempt to recover a research fee plus additional costs via a third-party collection agency and your account will be reported to all credit bureaus as a delinquent collection account. This may severely damage your credit rating for at least the next seven (7) years.

Customers who initiate chargebacks are removed from our customer lists and blocked from further purchases from our websites. Any person who violates the terms and conditions of our business policies, as stated and defined here, are also removed from all customer and mailing lists and blocked from making further purchases on our websites. Note: The customer must attempt to contact us via email or any existing ticket system before attempting a chargeback. THERE ARE  NO EXCEPTIONS TO THIS POLICY.

DISCLAIMER None of our products or services is accompanied by any guarantee of results. We cannot guarantee results for any customer or client because that is entirely dependent on their level of commitment and desire for change. Any stated or posted testimonials for results have come from customers, students, and clients who have completed sessions, work, or programs with Jennifer Hoffman and Enlightening Life OmniMedia, Inc. and reported their unique, individual results. Under no circumstances do we guarantee or state that these results can be replicated by others. Transformation, success, and life changes require a high level of commitment, discipline, and desire and those are up to the individual to implement in their lives. Our services and products are not to be considered as a replacement for mental or medical advice or services.
