The information we collect from customers helps us personalize and continually improve your shopping experience at our online bookstore and event registration area. The information you enter on our website or send via email allows us to respond to your requests and communicate with you. Some information is collected whenever you interact with us.

Shipping and Refund Policy

No objects will be shipped physically, as all products are digital downloads. All downloads are delivered through the web browser. If there is an issue with the digital download, contact us using our contact form or at the address below.

Please inform us by our contact form if you are having trouble with downloads of transcripts, audio, or video. We will try to send the products in another format. If you are unable to download them upon receipt, you can get a full refund within one week of purchase.

Events can be refunded prior to two weeks before the event date for a $35 cancellation fee. No refunds will be issued within two weeks of the event. If there is an emergency or illness that prevents you from attending, you can apply the amount to another event within one year.
