Frequently asked questions and terms and conditions
Why do sales go through Etsy?
Mandy van Goeije has chosen to use her website as a storefront and to direct sales to Etsy for safe and smooth payment with ample payment options for your ease and easy VAT processing. Prices on Etsy are including VAT unless VAT is specified.
Self-paced courses are available to download on Etsy immediately after payment. For some self-paced courses you receive the full course content at once in the form of an interactive e-book. For others you receive the log-in codes to access the course page on my website.
For paced courses you receive a download containing the first few lessons to get you started until the collective lessons begin.
All course and site content is © Mandy van Goeije.
Copyright of ALL www.mandyvangoeije.com course material is owned by the maker, being Mandy van Goeije. Purchase of a course does not transfer intellectual ownership to the buyer.
When you purchase an online course, you can use it for participants living in your household, so your partner, your kids. But not with every inhabitant of your appartment building or other family or friends.
None of the course material may be duplicated, shared, used for public broadcasting or sold to others. Introduction videos that are public on YouTube may be posted on weblogs, websites and social media, but not the downloadable course material or course material that is on the course websites.
Should you wish to use course material in classrooms or groups, special permission needs to be asked by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with a clear description of the activity, the intended audience and motivation. This also applies to charities. Special fees apply to groups. Enquire after the possibilities.
After purchase self-paced courses all course material is accessible at once.
Other courses are paced, which means you receive your course material on fixed times after you started.
Whether a course is paced or self-paced is in every course description, as well as the intervals with which you receive your lessons.
The entire course content of both self-paced and paced courses remains accessible on the website in its entirety. So if you can’t keep up with the pace of the course, no worries! You can always continue in your own pace and catch up. A paced course is a recommended pace, not an obligatory one.
Terms and Conditions
Course material is available immediately after purchase, either by download of course files or by a login-code to the course website.
