4. Video Sessions

a. As part of the Services, you may book a Session with a Consultant. All Sessions need to be booked at least 24 hours in advance in a time slot marked by a Consultant as available for that specific Consultant via the designated page on the Website (“Booking Form”) . Each Session unit has a maximum length of 59.5 minutes. You may book only time slots made available by a Consultant.

b. In order to book a Session, you must have a webcam, a microphone, enabled pop-ups for the Website and high speed internet connection. Even with all these requirements met, we cannot guarantee the quality of a webcam session and delays, echoes and other interferences may occur. The quality of the Sessions greatly depends on the network speed provided by your internet services provider. Nature Remedies strongly recommends the use of a headset for all online sessions.

c. The Platform will work with most desktop browsers. In order to conduct a Session you must use either:

  • i. Google Chrome (latest released version);
  • ii. Mozilla Firefox (latest released version);
  • iii. Internet Explorer 8,9,10, and 11 (you will be required to install OpenTok Plugin for Internet Explorer);
  • iv. Opera (latest release version)
  • v. Safari 11 and later;
  • vi. Edge browser

For best results, we strongly advise using Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox whether you are a PC or Mac user.

For mobile users- although the Services are not currently designed to work seamlessly on mobile, Sessions may be conducted on an Android mobile device or tablet using either Google Chrome for Android (latest released version) or Firefox for Android (latest released version).

We do not currently support Sessions on iOS including iPhones and iPads.

d. At the end of each Session you will be asked to give feedback to the Consultant with which you held the Session (“Feedback”). Giving such feedback is voluntary however, by providing such Feedback, you grant the Company a worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, transferable, royalty-free license, with the right to sublicense, to use, copy, modify, create derivative works of, distribute, publicly display, publicly perform, and otherwise exploit in any manner such Feedback in all formats and distribution channels now known or hereafter devised (including in connection with the Services and the Company’s business and on third-party sites and services), without further notice to or consent from you, and without the requirement of payment to you or any other person or entity.

You agree to not provide Feedback that is defamatory, libelous, hateful, violent, obscene, pornographic, unlawful, or otherwise offensive, as determined by the Company in its sole discretion, whether or not such material may be protected by law. The Company may, but shall not be obligated to, review, monitor, or remove Feedback, at Company’s sole discretion and at any time and for any reason, without notice to you.

 

5. Credit, charges and fees

a. The Platform is a credit based system. Each credit has the value of US $1 (one US Dollar). Credits can be used for various purposes, such as booking a session with a Consultant.

b. In order to use some of the Services you will have to purchase credit in advance which are purchased at the time of booking a video session with the Consultant of your choice. This is how it works: when booking a Session, you will be prompted to buy credits if you don’t have enough in your account. These credits will then be “reserved” and locked until the Session is either completed or canceled. Once the Session is completed, the appropriate number of credits, minus fees, will be transferred to the Consultant. In some events, if the Session was canceled (see our cancellation policy below) the credits will be available again in your account.

c. In the event you used the credit to receive services from a Consultant via the Website, the Company will facilitate the transfer of the credit to the Consultant on his or her behalf, as such Third-Party Provider’s limited payment collection agent as if such payment was made directly by you to the Third-Party Provider. Charges will be inclusive of applicable taxes where required by law . All payments are final and non-refundable, unless otherwise determined by the Company. Each Consultant sets hers or his fees.

d. Payments for credits are due immediately and payment will be facilitated by the Company using the preferred payment method designated in your Account, after which you will receive a receipt by email. If your primary Account payment method is determined to be expired, invalid or otherwise not able to be charged, you agree that the Company may use a secondary payment method in your Account, if available.

e. In addition to the payment for each session (the”Fee“), the Company may also charge you additional optional fees for using Services such as recording the Session (archiving). The Company reserves the right to revise, increase, decrease, waive, or otherwise change these Fees from time to time at the Company’s sole discretion. The Company will use reasonable efforts to inform you of Fees that may apply, provided that you will be responsible for Fees incurred under your Account regardless of your awareness of such Fee or the amounts thereof.

f. The Company may from time to time provide certain users with promotional offers and discounts that may result in different amounts charged for the same or similar services or goods obtained through the use of the Services, and you agree that such promotional offers and discounts, unless also made available to you, shall have no bearing on your use of the Services or the Fees applied to you.

g. The Company reserves the right to collect an additional surcharge and / or transaction fee, per each purchase of credits. This fee will be 2.5% of the total amount of US Dollar value paid.

 

6. Cancellations

You may choose to cancel any Session more than twenty-four (24) hours before the Session is scheduled to begin. In such an event, all “reserved” credits will be returned to your account on the Website for future use. If you cancel a Session under twenty-four (24) hours before the Session is scheduled to begin, you will be charged the full amount of credits, such that the Consultant will receive their charges. This is a material term of this Agreement.

Should the Consultant cancel a Session within any time frame of the scheduled Session, or not show up for the Session, you will not be charged, and you will be refunded the credits back into your balance.

If you do not show up for a session you will be charged the full amount of credits, such that the Consultant will receive their charges.

Should your scheduled session not take place due to technical reasons on the Platform (such as planned maintenance, server down, power failure, site bugs, hacking attempts, script errors, etc.) you will not be charged, and you will be refunded the credits back into your balance.

Returned credits can be used towards booking a new Session with any Consultant of your choice, however, if there is a credit difference in the price you might be required to purchase additional credits.

 

7. Refunds
You are entitled to a full refund of your purchased credit, within 14 days of your purchase, provided that none of the purchased balance has been used. Refunds will be at the Company’s discretion.

 

8. Term and Termination
