A General Disclaimer Regarding Coaching and Consultations

BY BECOMING A CLIENT AND RECEIVING COACHING SERVICES FROM SARA YOUNG WANG COACHING OR CONSULTATIONS PRIOR TO BECOMING A CLIENT OF SARA YOUNG WANG COACHING, YOU AGREE TO AND ACCEPT THE FOLLOWING DISCLAIMER.

Sara Young Wang Coaching is a service that provides career and life coaching to individuals and groups. Whilst we exercise our best professional efforts of ensuring clients are coached to meet their coaching goals, the client understands and acknowledges the coach, employees of the company, partners, and vendors will not be liable legally or otherwise, for the actions the client may or may not undertake as a result of the coaching/consultation sessions.

The client takes full responsibility in the decisions they make after a coaching session/a consultation as well as the consequences.

The client enters into coaching with full understanding that they are responsible for creating their own results. There are no guarantees, or warranties, expressed or implied about of any specific results or outcomes from coaching. 

I will keep all information from our coaching sessions or consultations confidential, except in cases where I am required by law to disclose that you are my client and/or the content of our conversations, or in cases where based on my sole judgement you are at risk of hurting yourself or others.

What Coaching Is Not: Coaching services (including consults prior to formal engagement) are not in any way to be construed as, or a replacement for the services or treatment provided by psychological/mental health professionals including, but not limited to psychologists, psychiatrists, psychotherapists, counsellors, or any other medical professionals. By engaging in coaching services or consults with Sara Young Wang Coaching you understand and agree that you are completely responsible for your health and well-being before, during, between coaching sessions and after we have finished our work together and no longer a client. You are also completely responsible for your health and well-being before, during and after a consultation session. If you have reason to suspect that you are suffering from mental illness of any form I encourage you to seek professional medical/mental health attention immediately and it is your responsibility to do so. I am not trained in the assessment, detection or diagnosis of mental illness. If you feel you may be at risk of harming yourself or others please immediately seek help from a medical/mental health professional. In case of an emergency you are advised to proceed to the nearest emergency room or dial 911. I am in no way responsible for your actions pertaining to self-harm, suicide or causing harm to others.  

You release Sara Young Wang Coaching, Sara Young, employees of the company, partners, and vendors from any and all liability whatsoever, including that arising from negligence.

CANCELLATIONS AND REFUNDS

My Integrity Refund Policy: It’s not a win-win if you’re not getting value or if you’re not the right fit for this coaching. It’s not good for either of us. It's unlikely to happen, but if that’s the case, refunds on remaining unused sessions of a package will be granted. In other words, if you're not satisfied with your coaching services all you need to do is provide at least 48hrs notice prior to your next session and all remaining sessions of a package will be refunded. Nice, huh?  

Cancelling/Rescheduling/Missed Sessions: If you need to cancel or reschedule and it is not an emergency, please call or email to cancel at least 48 hours in advance or the full amount of a session will be charged. I understand that emergencies can happen to anyone; therefore, if an emergency keeps you from attending a scheduled session, please call whenever possible to let me know of the circumstances. Such events as death in the family, serious accidents, serious illness and hospitalization are considered “emergencies” and you will not be charged for the missed session.

Use of Cookies     

syoungwang.com does not directly use 'cookies.' However, our email managed by Mailchimp does use cookies. The following quote from Mailchimp discusses what this entails

"User email campaigns: We automatically place single pixel gifs, also known as web beacons, in every email sent by our users. These are tiny graphic files that contain unique identifiers that enable us and our users to recognize when their subscribers have opened an email or clicked certain links. These technologies record each subscribers email address, IP address, date, and time associated with each open and click for a campaign. We use this data to create reports for our users about how an email campaign performed and what actions subscribers took."

We use Squarespace for our website. To the best of our knowledge, Squarespace does not currently support recognition of Do Not Track protocol. Users of this site should anticipate that data regarding their visit to this site is collected and used in the aggregate. 

Email Policies

If you choose to correspond with us through email (via Mailchimp or Googlemail), we may retain the content of your email messages together with your email address and our responses. We provide the same protections for these electronic communications that we employ in the maintenance of information received online, mail and telephone.

We are committed to keeping your e-mail address confidential. We do not sell, rent, or lease our subscription lists to third parties, and we will not provide your personal information to any third party individual, government agency, or company at any time unless strictly compelled to do so by law.

We will use your e-mail address solely to provide timely information from and about syoungwang.com and Sara Young Wang.

We will maintain the information you send via e-mail in accordance with applicable laws.

Email is not recognized as a secure medium of communication. For this reason, we request that you do not send private information to us by email. However, doing so is allowed, but at your own risk. Some of the information you may enter on our website will be transmitted securely via a secure medium known as Secure Sockets Layer, or SSL. Credit Card information and other sensitive information is never transmitted via email.

Sara Young Wang may use software programs to create summary statistics, which are used for such purposes as assessing the number of visitors to the different sections of our site, what information is of most and least interest, determining technical design specifications, and identifying system performance or problem areas.

CAN-SPAM Compliance

In compliance with the CAN-SPAM Act, all e-mail sent from our organization will clearly state who the e-mail is from and provide clear information on how to contact the sender. In addition, all e-mail messages will also contain concise information on how to remove yourself from our mailing list so that you receive no further e-mail communication from us.
