When you use this website (TheCopywriterClub.com), you agree to play by the rules as written here. Failing to do so will lead to, at minimum, you losing access to the site (i.e., we’ll block your IP address). So please follow the laws in your country and use common sense, like this:
Don’t steal our intellectual property, including training videos, mp3s, transcripts, downloads, content, or ideas.

Don’t post evil stuff, or try to harm us or the people using this site.
You assume responsibility for everything you do on our site. Don’t blame us if you post a comment and later see something like it in print or any other sort of production.
Don’t pretend you’re someone you’re not while using this site. What kind of person does that?
YOU ARE LEASING ALL PAID CONTENT AND, BECAUSE OF THAT, YOU’RE NEVER AT LIBERTY TO DISTRIBUTE, TEACH OR SHARE ANY OF OUR CONTENT WITHOUT OUR EXPRESS WRITTEN CONSENT.
If you make a purchase on this website and want a refund, email us before your time-limited guarantee date passes. Unfortunately we can’t honor refund requests after the guarantee has expired.
