Terms and Conditions
These terms and conditions (“Agreement”) set forth the general terms and conditions of your use of the certifiedcoachesfederation.com website (“Website” or “Service”) and any of its related products and services (collectively, “Services”). This Agreement is legally binding between you (“User”, “you” or “your”) and Healthy Wealthy and Wise® Corporation, the parent company of Certified Coaches Federation (“Healthy Wealthy and Wise® Corporation”, “we”, “us” or “our”). If you are entering into this agreement on behalf of a business or other legal entity, you represent that you have the authority to bind such entity to this agreement, in which case the terms “User”, “you” or “your” shall refer to such entity. If you do not have such authority, or if you do not agree with the terms of this agreement, you must not accept this agreement and may not access and use the Website and Services. By accessing and using the Website and Services, you acknowledge that you have read, understood, and agree to be bound by the terms of this Agreement. You acknowledge that this Agreement is a contract between you and Healthy Wealthy and Wise® Corporation, even though it is electronic and is not physically signed by you, and it governs your use of the Website and Services.
Accounts and membership
If you create an account on the Website, you are responsible for maintaining the security of your account and you are fully responsible for all activities that occur under the account and any other actions taken in connection with it. We may, but have no obligation to, monitor and review new accounts before you may sign in and start using the Services. Providing false contact information of any kind may result in the termination of your account. You must immediately notify us of any unauthorized uses of your account or any other breaches of security. We will not be liable for any acts or omissions by you, including any damages of any kind incurred as a result of such acts or omissions. We may suspend, disable, or delete your account (or any part thereof) if we determine that you have violated any provision of this Agreement or that your conduct or content would tend to damage our reputation and goodwill. If we delete your account for the foregoing reasons, you may not re-register for our Services. We may block your email address and Internet protocol address to prevent further registration.
Billing and payments
You shall pay all fees or charges to your account in accordance with the fees, charges, and billing terms in effect at the time a fee or charge is due and payable. Where Services are offered on a free trial basis, payment may be required after the free trial period ends, and not when you enter your billing details (which may be required prior to the commencement of the free trial period). If auto-renewal is enabled for the Services you have subscribed for, you will be charged automatically in accordance with the term you selected. If, in our judgment, your purchase constitutes a high-risk transaction, we will require you to provide us with a copy of your valid government-issued photo identification, and possibly a copy of a recent bank statement for the credit or debit card used for the purchase. We reserve the right to change products and product pricing at any time. We also reserve the right to refuse any order you place with us. We may, in our sole discretion, limit or cancel quantities purchased per person, per household or per order. These restrictions may include orders placed by or under the same customer account, the same credit card, and/or orders that use the same billing and/or shipping address. In the event that we make a change to or cancel an order, we may attempt to notify you by contacting the e-mail and/or billing address/phone number provided at the time the order was made.
Accuracy of information
Occasionally there may be information on the Website that contains typographical errors, inaccuracies or omissions that may relate to product descriptions, pricing, availability, promotions and offers. We reserve the right to correct any errors, inaccuracies or omissions, and to change or update information or cancel orders if any information on the Website or Services is inaccurate at any time without prior notice (including after you have submitted your order). We undertake no obligation to update, amend or clarify information on the Website including, without limitation, pricing information, except as required by law. No specified update or refresh date applied on the Website should be taken to indicate that all information on the Website or Services has been modified or updated.

CCF Standards of Ethical Conduct
The Certified Coaches Federation requires its members to conform to the following code, standards, conduct, and pledge. The Certified Coaches Federation shall hold members accountable for any departure from these principles. Certification, credentials, and access to materials are contingent on agreement to the code of ethics.
Professional Conduct At Large
As a coach:
I will not knowingly make any public statements that are untrue or misleading, or make false claims in any written documents relating to the coaching profession.
As a trainer or supervisor of current and potential coaches, I will conduct myself in accordance with the CCF Code of Ethics in all training and supervisory situations.
I will accurately create, maintain, store and dispose of any records of work done in relation to the practice of coaching in a way that promotes confidentiality and complies with any applicable laws.
Members shall always be honest about the nature of their titles and degrees when referring to them to the general public, the media, and within the confines of our profession.
Colleagues: Members shall treat other coaches without public defamation.
Professional Conduct with Clients
I will be responsible for setting clear, appropriate, and culturally sensitive boundaries that govern any physical contact that I may have with my clients.
I will not become sexually involved with any of my clients.
I will construct clear agreements with my clients, and will honor all agreements made in the context of professional coaching relationships.
I will ensure that, prior to or at the initial session, my coaching client understands the nature of coaching, the bounds of confidentiality, financial arrangements and other terms of the coaching agreement.
I will respect the client's right to terminate coaching at any point during the process. I will be alert to indications that the client is no longer benefiting from our coaching relationship.
I will seek the signed consent of a legal parent or guardian if working with a minor as defined by the laws of their state or province.
If I believe the client would be better served by another coach, or by another resource, I will encourage the client to make a change.
Client Welfare: Members shall make the physical and mental well-being of each client a prime consideration.
Client Safety: Members shall not engage in verbal, physical or emotional abuse of any client.
Practice Limits: Members shall coach each client within the limits of their training and competence and in conformity to the laws of their state or province.
Reasonable Practice: Members shall withhold coaching if a client's behavior, appearance or statements would lead a reasonable person to believe that the client should be evaluated by a licensed health care professional.
Conflicts of Interest
I will seek to avoid conflicts between my interests and the interests of my clients.
CCF Pledge of Ethics
As a professional coach, I acknowledge and agree to honor my ethical obligations to my coaching clients and colleagues and to the public at large. I pledge to comply with the CCF Code of Ethics, to treat people with dignity as independent and equal human beings, and to model these standards with those whom I coach. If I breach this Pledge of Ethics or any part of the CCF Code of Ethics, I agree that CCF in its sole discretion may hold me accountable for so doing. I further agree that my accountability to the CCF for any breach may include loss of my CCF membership and/or my CCF credentials.
