Creative Caterpillar LLC Terms And Conditions
Collection Of Data
Your use of this website and our services, whether in a child care center, school, studio or other setting, is your express consent to the use of any data given to us in perpetuity for the purposes outlined herein.
Use of Registration and Contact Forms
Creative Caterpillar LLC provides a variety of online forms on this site designed for your convenience and to speed the process of various activities with which you voluntarily engage us, such as registering your child for events and classes. If, at any time, you prefer to register through a paper method or via phone, please contact us. If you do choose to use our forms, do not use any text fields to enter credit card data or any other secure or privileged data, except where indicated. Although we do permit you to provide your credit card to us for billing purposes, fields for that purpose are expressly and clearly marked, and the form is designated as secure (identified by the use of the https qualifier at the beginning of the web page name). If, at any time, you believe you may have or be at risk of having compromised your personal information through our website, please contact us immediately. While we make every effort to provide a secure online experience, at all times you remain responsible for the security of your information submitted online.
Method Of Payment
We do not accept checks or cash as payment. Do not give funds to either your center or the Dancercise instructor. A valid credit card on file with us is a pre-requisite of participation. If you have problems with your credit card, contact us – we may be able to arrange temporary alternative payment arrangements..
Refunds, Changes & Cancellation
In order to reduce the cost of collecting funds and managing delinquencies, we bill for classes in advance. In order to help you manage your commitment to us, we provide an e-mail notification of forthcoming charges. Those charges are then applied to your credit card around the 15th of the month. For example, on or around the time of initial registration, you receive an email confirmation welcoming you to the program and outlining ongoing charges. You have until the 14th of each month to notify us of any changes to your situation for the upcoming month. On or around the 15th, charges will be billed to your credit card to pay for the following month's classes. No refunds will be issued after that point, so any cancellation will take effect once your paid classes are completed. We do not issue credits for missed classes unless you notify us in writing (e.g. via e-mail) prior to the month’s billing (e.g. if you expect to miss a class in October, you must notify us prior to the billing on September 15th). Our class calendar is already planned to account for holidays such as Thanksgiving in order to ensure that each child receives four classes per month to equal 48 classes in a calendar year, versus weekly classes. Curriculum months may or may not fall entirely within calendar months in order to accommodate these holidays over the course of a full curriculum year. If our instructor misses class for any reason, or the center has to change the date or time of the class, class time will be made up on an alternative date or by adding class time onto remaining classes.
Credit Card Declines or Payment Failures
Should your credit card be declined, we will follow up with you for payment. Should we be unable to reach you for payment via phone or e-mail, we will send you a letter. After multiple unsuccessful attempts to contact you we may send you to a collections agency, whereupon you will be liable for any and all costs associated with the collection of debt, including the agency’s fees which can often double the outstanding debt. If you receive notification from us that your card was declined, please contact us promptly to make alternative arrangements for payment.
You must contact our office in writing (via e-mail) regarding any changes to your account (such as cancellation). We do not accept third party cancellation notices (this means you can’t expect the child care center or the Dancercise instructor to pass on your expectations). Thank you for your cooperation.
