This page details this website's terms and conditions that apply to anyone who visits our website and uses our services and creates a terms and conditions contract between you and South Coast Studio which covers (1) your use of our website and (2) how we make our services available to you. These terms set forth the terms and conditions under which you may use our website and are necessary in order to protect both you and us, and to make sure our services are more enjoyable for everyone. By accessing or using the website and our services, you approve that you have read, understood, and agree to be bound by these terms.
1.1 Our Purpose
Our services provide a learning resource for users to learn and develop new skills in recreating paint effect techniques and to connect with a community of like-minded students to share ideas and inspiration, without being an experienced artist or decorator. As detailed below, we offer our users video tutorials, discussion forums, newsletters, galleries and downloadable content. We are licensed to use all the content on our website, and generally the content is owned by South Coast Studio. Please respect the content and the access.
1.2 Legal Agreement
These South Coast Studio terms and conditions set forth the entire terms and conditions applicable to each visitor or user to the South Coast Studio website, including the online and mobile version, collectively referred to herein as the "Website Platforms". The South Coast Studio terms and conditions constitute a binding and enforceable legal contract between South Coast Studio and you in relation to the use of any South Coast Studio services - so please read them carefully.
1.3 User Account
In order to access and use certain sections and features of the South Coast Studio services, you must first register and create an account with South Coast Studio ("User Account").
If anyone other than yourself accesses your User Account and/or your Website Platforms' settings, they may perform any actions available to you, make changes to your Website Platform(s) and User Account, and accept any legal terms available therein, make various representations and warranties and more - and all such activities will be deemed to have occurred on your behalf and in your name.
Therefore, we strongly encourage you to keep the log-in credentials of your User Account confidential, and allow such access only to the people you trust - as you will be solely and fully responsible for all activities that occur under your User Account on any Website Platform, whether or not specifically authorised by you, and for any damages, expenses or losses that may result from such activities.
You must provide accurate and complete information when registering for your User Account and using the South Coast Studio services, to which you are the sole and exclusive rights holder. We strongly encourage you to provide your own (or your company's) contact and billing details, including your valid e-mail address, as we may use it to identify and determine the actual and true owner of the User Account and User Content submitted to us.
In case of a dispute on User Account ownership, we reserve the right to determine ownership to a User Account based on our reasonable judgement, whether of not an independent investigation has been conducted by us. However, if we cannot back such determination (as we may deem in our sole discretion), we reserve the right to avoid doing so and/or suspend a User Account until the parties disputing ownership, reach a resolution, without liability to you or to any other party. We may request documentation (e.g. a business license or government-issued ID) that may assist us in determining ownership. Among others, we may consider the principles set forth below:
South Coast Studio will consider the owner of a User Account and/or User Content accessed from, downloaded from and/or uploaded to any Website Platform as the person or entity who has access to the e-mail address then listed in the South Coast Studio's records for such User Account under which such User Content was created.
If any Paid Services were purchased via a User Account, South Coast Studio will consider the owner of such User Account to be the person or entity whose billing details were used to purchase the Paid Services ("Billing Information").
Notwithstanding the forgoing, South Coast Studio shall have the right to determine the ownership of User Content and a User Account as it chooses, at its sole discretion, that the situation justifies such determination, all based upon the factual situation as determined by South Coast Studio.

If you wish to receive or use such Paid Services, you are required to pay all applicable Fees in advance. When buying an item, you agree that:

Where applicable, South Coast Studio will attempt to automatically charge you the applicable Fees using the Stored Card, within up-to two (2) weeks before such renewal period commences. In the event of a failure to collect the Fees owed by you, we may in our sole discretion (but shall not be obligated to) retry to collect on a later time, and/or suspend or cancel your User Account, without further notice. If your Renewing Paid Service is subject to a yearly or multiple-year subscription period, South Coast Studio will endeavor to provide you a notice prior to the renewal of such Paid Services at least thirty (30) days in advance of the renewal date.

5.4 Cancellation and Refund Policy

you have requested it within the fourteen (14) day cooling off period
in the case of Paid Services that do not provide instant access (including studio events and online events), you have requested it fourteen (14) days before the start date;
in the case of subscription-based Paid Services the cancellation process may take a few days, in order to avoid the next automatic renewal and respective charge the cancellation request should be made at least fourteen (14) days prior to the expiration of the then-current service period;
you have not completed and/or accessed (or attempted to complete and/or access) any Paid Services, including course content (e.g. videos and downloadable content).

If, at any time, we record a decline, chargeback or any other rejection of a charge of any payable Fees on your South Coast Studio account ("Chargeback"), this will be considered as a breach of your payment obligations hereunder, and your use of South Coast Studio services may be automatically disabled or terminated.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding a payment made to South Coast Studio, we encourage you to first contact us before filing a Chargeback or reversal of payment, in order to prevent the South Coast Studio services from being cancelled and your User Account being blocked, and to avoid the filing of unwarranted or erroneous Chargeback, which may result in your being liable for its applicable Fees, in addition to re-payment of all the Fees applicable to the South Coast Studio services purchased (and charged-back) by you.
We reserve our right to dispute any Chargeback received, including by providing the relevant credit card company or financial institution with any information and documentation proving that the User responsible for such Chargeback did in fact authorise the transaction and make use of the services rendered thereafter.
