16. SUBSCRIPTION GUARANTEES
- EC's Double Your Money Guarantee January 2022
- Entrepreneurs Circle's 'Double Your Money Guarantee' allows you to join EC and use the resources available to you safe in the knowledge that if after six months of membership you haven’t earned back at least twice your investment in increased gross profit, then we'll send you double what you’ve paid us in that time.
- To qualify for this guarantee you need to have joined Entrepreneurs Circle through the guarantee offer page (https://entrepreneurscircle.org/free/) and have completed the guarantee registration form presented immediately after checkout. If you have signed up for EC Membership through any other means (e.g. the 3-month Bursary) then this guarantee will not apply to you.
- Obviously Entrepreneurs Circle (or anything for that matter!) won't help your business unless you actually use it, and so in order to qualify for the 'Double Your Money Guarantee' you need to actually follow the guidance and advice that we give you during your first six months of membership. This includes completing assigned tasks in the week in which they are assigned, spending at least 3 hours of focussed time each week working ON your business rather than in it and asking for help from the EC team if and when you need it. This guarantee cannot be used as an excuse to avoid effort and work on your part.
- If you wish to claim under the guarantee you will be required to provide examples and evidence of your completed work to validate your claim and you may also be required to provide evidence from your accounts/book-keeping system.
- Cancellation of your Entrepreneurs Circle membership within six months of joining or any failed payments during those first six months will automatically nullify and void your guarantee.
- This guarantee only covers the first six months of your Entrepreneurs Circle membership, starting from the date you complete the sign up form online.
- The maximum amount payable under this guarantee is £990 - equivalent to double five monthly membership payments of £99.
- Any other purchases, subscriptions or payments made to EC are not covered by this guarantee.
- How To Claim: If you are planning to claim under this guarantee you must let us know via email to [email protected] no later than 5 months after your start date. We reserve the right to work with you and, at our sole discretion, to do work for you during month six of your membership to generate the revenue and returns needed to fulfil the promise of the guarantee.
- If, after your sixth month as a member, you have still not seen an increase in your gross profit of at least £990 (i.e. double the five monthly payments of £99 that you will have paid by then) then you must write via email to [email protected] no later than 180 days after the day you joined submitting your claim under the guarantee. Providing you have complied with the terms of the guarantee, as set out here, EC will then pay you double what you have paid for your EC Membership subscription for the past 6 months to you via BACS within 14 working days. Failure to claim within these time windows or without following these processes will invalidate the guarantee.
17. THE FACEBOOK AD ACCELERATOR GUARANTEES
- The Facebook Ad Accelerator is a proven programme with hundreds of successful businesses having gone through the process. However, our '100% Absolute Satisfaction' Guarantee allows you to claim a full refund on any payments made for the Facebook Ad Accelerator if you have tried the product, fully and diligently completed at least two modules, decided that the course is not for you and let us know in writing within 14 days of purchase.
- The Facebook Ad Accelerator comes with a 'We Won't Let You Fail' Guarantee.
- We're so confident in the Facebook Ad Accelerator that if you go through the programme, take part in the Q&A calls and still (somehow!) don't see success after 12 months we'll not only refund your money but, if you'd like, we'll work with you 1:1 to craft a winning Facebook Ad campaign for you. The creation of this campaign can take up to 21 working days (but is usually delivered much sooner).
- The campaign we create must be run as we deliver it with the budget we suggest in order to guarantee any results.
- Any amendments to the campaign we deliver for you will void the guarantee.
- IMPORTANT: the Facebook Ad Accelerator won't work unless you use it. Before claiming this guarantee you must have watched and completed all modules of the Facebook Ad Accelerator and attended at least three 'coaching calls'. Our team will work with you to craft a compelling campaign that we believe will generate results.
18. THE 365 DAY SATISFACTION GUARANTEES
- A selection of our products and services come with a '365 Day 100% Satisfaction Guarantee'.
- If you are not completely satisfied with your purchase at any point in the first 365 days from the point of purchase, you are entitled to claim under this guarantee and receive a full refund.
- This guarantee is only eligible to be claimed if you have used the product/service in question and are not satisfied. It is not valid if you have not made proper and thorough use of the resources available.
- To claim under the guarantee, you must email [email protected] and return the relevant resources to Entrepreneurs Circle, 2635 Kings Court, Birmingham Business Park, Birmingham, B37 7YE, no later than 365 days after your date of purchase.
- If payment of the Exhibitor Fee in full is not received before the Event then EC may (at its sole discretion) either require such payment as a condition of an Exhibitor's entry to the Exhibition or refuse the Exhibitor entry to the Exhibition.

- EC reserves the right at any time to change the size and location of an Exhibitor's space at the Exhibition and accepts no liability for such change, other than, if appropriate, an obligation to refund the proportion of the Exhibitor Fee resulting from a reduction in size of the space. EC will however contact an Exhibitor (where possible) to discuss any proposed change to the size and/or location of a stand.
- EC is under no obligation to an Exhibitor to provide a particular space on the floor plan or stand number at the Exhibition. EC also reserves the right (without any liability to the Exhibitor) to alter the stand numbering, the lay-out of any Exhibition floor plan and the position of any stand at any time.
- EC will endeavour, and it is our intention, to adhere to the published schedule for all events but we reserve the right to change any aspect of our events at our absolute discretion, including, but not limited to, the celebrities, speakers, course content, date and times if necessary. Illness, inclement weather and other unexpected issues may occasionally result in event rescheduling and/or a different trainer or speaker.
- No such changes will invalidate an Exhibitor booking nor entitle an Exhibitor to any refund of any kind.
- In addition, EC are not liable for any consequential costs that you may incur like, for example, any non-refundable hotel or travel costs in the event of any such changes having to be made.
- Assignment and sub-letting, or the granting of licences, whether of the whole or any part of the area allocated to an Exhibitor and the display or distribution of advertisement cards or other documents by or on behalf of persons who are not contractual exhibitors is strictly prohibited.
If an Exhibitor wishes to cancel a Booking, the Exhibitor must notify EC in writing prior to the Exhibition. EC may accept such cancellation at its sole discretion, and if such cancellation is accepted the cancellation fee will be payable of:
- 20% if the cancellation is received more than 240 days from the Event/Exhibition;
- 80% if the cancellation is received less than 240 days but more than 60 days from the Event/Exhibition;
- 100% if the cancellation is received less than 60 days from the Event/Exhibition;
- EC shall have the right to terminate immediately any Booking on written notice to the Exhibitor if the Exhibitor:
