Course timing

By purchasing the GMAT Prep Course, you are making a reservation for the specific dates indicated in our online order form or the contract that you sign.  You may not postpone to a later session of the course without our consent.

Class schedules are subject to change and/or cancellation.  If we change the schedule for the course you signed up for, or cancel it, and you do not want to enroll in an alternative course, you may receive a full refund upon request.

Payment terms

Payment is due immediately when you sign up for the course.

If you are not satisfied with the course, you may cancel on any business day prior to the third content lesson, “Algebra”, and receive a full refund, minus a $100 administrative fee.

If you do not pay your invoice for the course, or if you claim a refund under this policy, or if you file a chargeback with your credit card company, you may not attend the course nor may you access any of the instructional materials or the session recordings.

Student code of conduct

Menlo Coaching reserves the right to expel any student from the GMAT Prep Course for:

  1. Disrupting the learning environment repeatedly, e.g. by posting inappropriate or offensive comments.
  2. Breaching any part of these terms, e.g. by disclosing the identities of fellow course participants, or by distributing Menlo Coaching’s confidential materials to others.
  3. Acting improperly toward any Menlo Coaching instructor or fellow student.

If you are expelled for these reasons, you will not receive a refund and may not enroll in our course again.

Confidentiality

Except as directed by you, we will keep all aspects of our work together confidential.

You agree to keep the discussions during our meetings and the identities of the other course participants confidential.  You acknowledge that participating in the course will reveal your identity to other course participants, and indemnify Menlo Coaching against any possible damages that may arise from them disclosing the fact that you participated in the GMAT Prep Course.

You agree to keep all Menlo Coaching materials, such as videos, worksheets, and other documents, confidential and to use them only for yourself.

You agree that we may use limited, anonymized information about your application in the following ways:

1.  We may use your before-and-after improvement or your final GMAT score to market our service.  We may report individually (without using your name) or in an aggregated way.

2.  Menlo Coaching staff, who will have agreed to keep client data confidential as a condition of their employment, may review recordings of course meetings or your correspondence with us as part of their training.

Besides the uses listed above, we will never use your information in any way unless we have first received your permission.

Limitations of our Service

We believe that our service will give you the best chance possible to achieve a high GMAT score.  But, we must advise you about several limitations:

1.  We cannot guarantee that you will achieve a particular GMAT score or level of improvement.

GMAT scores depend on many factors that are out of our control, such as the amount of time you spend on GMAT study outside the course meetings.

2.  A significant time commitment outside of course meetings is required to achieve a good GMAT score.

You must spend time on GMAT self-study if you expect to achieve a good GMAT score.

3.  We rely on the security of third parties to keep your data confidential.

In the process of delivering our service we use various commercial software products, including but not limited to Gmail, Google Drive, Basecamp (www.basecamp.com), Xero, Mac OS, Microsoft Windows, Microsoft Word, and other similar software products.

The security of your private information depends on the security of these software products.  If these software products would be hacked, it is possible that your private information would be revealed publicly.  We believe that these companies are reliable and professional but disclaim any liability for breaches of the security of their software.

4.  Limited liability

We are not liable for any damages, whether direct or indirect, based on your GMAT score.  For example, you agree not to make a claim for damages against Menlo Coaching for a rebate of your fees or for “lost earning potential” based on the fact that you achieve a poor GMAT score.

In no event will Menlo Coaching’s liability to you exceed what you have paid to enroll in our GMAT Prep Course.
