Grant of license

In consideration of your payment, we hereby grant you a license to use the purchased online courses (“the products”). This license is limited, revocable, non-sublicensable, and non-transferable, and is subject to the rights and obligations granted under these terms.

The license is personal to you and cannot be shared or exchanged with others.


We develop, distribute, and maintain the Products and will also provide you with log in details. We will also manage your access to the Products and provide support to you, where necessary.

You shall not copy, modify, transmit, distribute, or in any way exploit the Products or any other copyrighted materials provided other than for your individual use and education. Any other purpose is expressly prohibited under these terms. You shall also not permit anyone else to copy, use, modify, transmit, distribute, or in any way exploit the Products or any other copyrighted materials.

We provide the materials “as is” and without any warranties, whether express or implied, except those that cannot be excluded under statute. We also do not warrant that the materials will be error free, including technical inaccuracies.

Access to materials

The starting date of your access to the Products is deemed to be the date that you first have access. You receive “life time access” to the course with your purchase. “Life time” is defined as the life time of this website, which we hope will be many years, but cannot guarantee how long that might be. You are encouraged to begin and complete the course as soon as you can so that you can gain the knowledge that will help you with your project.

We will take all commercially reasonable steps to provide you with uninterrupted access to the Products. However, your access may be restricted from time to time for reasons beyond our control. Such reasons include force majeure events, power outages, and actions from computer hackers and others acting outside the law. Your access may also be interrupted due to software issues, server downtime, increased internet traffic, programming errors, regular maintenance, and other related reasons. Where this is the case, we will take commercially reasonable steps to restore your full access within a reasonable period of time. “Commercially reasonable” in these terms shall mean reasonable efforts taken in good faith, without an unduly burdensome use or expenditure of time, resources, personnel, or money

Our aim is to provide courses and materials of the highest quality. As such, improvements or changes to the Products or any other materials may occur at any time without prior notification in order to ensure that they are up to date and accurate.

Pricing and Payment

We use a third party payment provider: PayPal. Payment for the Products must be made at the point of purchase – when you enroll through the website.

You agree to provide payment for the Products in the stipulated currency and you will be liable to pay any relevant conversion charges, as well as applicable sales tax in your region. Please note that we must receive your payment in full before providing you with access to the Products.

Your payment includes the licensing of the Products for a limited period of time that is appropriate for the course content. We are unable to provide a refund if you fail to complete the content within the allocated time, except at your absolute and sole discretion.

We reserve the right to review and change the pricing of any of our Products. This will not affect Products that have already been purchased.

Cancellation and restriction policy

Where Products are delivered to you immediately, you will not have the right to change your mind. In other cases, you may change your mind within 14 days of purchase, so long as materials have not been provided to you, downloaded, streamed, or otherwise accessed. If you do wish to cancel, please contact us via email.

It is your responsibility to ensure that you meet the system requirements, including compatible hardware, software, telecommunications equipment, and internet service, prior to purchasing any content. We are unable to provide refunds where your access to the Products is inhibited due to insufficient system requirements.

We may restrict your access to the Products if you breach them terms, including without limitation:

a) A failure to make any payment due to use; or

b) Failure to provide accurate information that is necessary for us to provide the Products to you.

In these circumstances, we will inform you via email within seven (7) days’ notice that your access to the Products will be restricted.

100% satisfaction

As stated on and other marketing materials, and David Locicero guarantee that you will be 100% satisfied with the Products should you take the entire course. Satisfaction is defined as your belief that we are delivering on what was promised in promoting the course. If you are not satisfied within 90 days of your completing the course, notify us via email and we will refund your course tuition via PayPal.

Note: a guarantee represents a promise about the quality of the Products delivered; if you never experienced the Products (ie, did not take the entire course, nor review the other materials), the guarantee obviously does not apply. Further the guarantee cannot be substituted for or confused with the Cancellation Policy.

Your Rights

This is a summary of your key legal rights.

The Products must be as described, fit for purpose and of a satisfactory quality. If the Products are faulty, then you are entitled to ask for a repair or replacement and if the fault cannot be fixed, or it has not been fixed within a reasonable time and without significant inconvenience, then you can get some or all of your money refunded.

If you can show that the fault has damaged your device and that we have not used reasonable care and skill, then you may be entitled to compensation.

Intellectual property

All rights, title, and interest in intellectual property rights relating to the Products including copyright, patents, trademarks, trade secrets, improvements, developments, proprietary information, know-how, processes, methods, business plans, or models (including computer software and preparatory and design materials thereof) and all other intellectual property (whether registered or not) developed or created from time to time shall exclusively be owned by and David Locicero. While you may utilize the intellectual property, you understand that there shall be no transfer of ownership of the same.

Al other trademarks, service marks, and trade names in this material are the marks of the respective owners and any unauthorized use is prohibited.

Loss or Damage

The content of the Products is provided for informational and educational purposes only. and David Locicero make no claim as to the accuracy or authenticity of this content. Neither, nor David Locicero accepts liability to any person for the information or advice provided on this website or incorporated into it by reference. and David Locicero do not accept any liability for loss or damages incurred as a result of reliance placed upon the content of this website. This information is provided on the basis that all persons accessing this website undertake responsibility for assessing the relevance and accuracy of its content.

Other important terms

You need our consent to transfer your rights under these terms to someone else. We may not agree to this as these terms grant a license for your benefit only.

Nobody else has any rights under these terms – they are between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms.

If a court finds part of these terms illegal or unenforceable, the rest of the terms continue in force.

Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date.
