Private Coaching Calls

For the sake of this section, “private coaching”, “consulting”, and “coaching” will refer to the same service. A “Coach” is the person or persons associated with Doberman Planet who you consult with during your coaching call.

Coaching calls are a chance for you to receive the opinions and input of a coach who has a different set of experiences from you with the Doberman breed. The opinions expressed in the coaching calls are the opinions of your individual coach and not necessarily those of Doberman Planet.

The advice, opinions, and recommendations made by your coach should be considered “a second opinion” on your situation only, and not as expert advice.

Any implementations of the techniques or approaches discussed during your coaching call or other communication with your coach are done so at your own risk. By purchasing a coaching call, you agree not to hold Doberman Planet, it’s owners, coaches, and employees liable for any actions you take, even if it’s at the advice of your coach. You understand that due to limitations in internet communication and the limited time your coach has to get to know your specific situation, it’s simply not possible for your coach to know all variables involved. You agree that you are solely responsible for the actions you take as a result of your coaching call. You agree not to hold Doberman Planet, it’s employees, coaches, or owners liable for any damages that are the result of actions you take or omit during or after your coaching call.

Coaching calls may not be recorded or distributed in any way without the express written, or otherwise documented, permission of a Doberman Planet representative and the involved coach.

Distribution of recordings made of a coaching call is also forbidden without the express written, or otherwise documented, permission of a Doberman Planet representative and the involved coach.

By booking a coaching call, the customer agrees that the content of a coaching call is fully owned by Doberman Planet and the exclusive rights of the content of the call will remain solely with Doberman Planet. Additionally, the customer agrees that Doberman Planet may publicly discuss details of their individual coaching call assuming that identifying information of the customer in question is not released or associated with those details.

However, any feedback provided to Doberman Planet in the survey form after the completion of a coaching call is not considered to be private and may be used publicly for marketing purposes by Doberman Planet along with basic identifying information of the client such as the client’s first name, last name, and general location (not to include personal addresses).

Doberman Planet may record coaching calls for quality assurance or training purposes. However, Doberman Planet will not distribute recordings of private coaching calls publicly without permission first being obtained from the customer.

Coaching calls are considered copyrighted material and any unauthorized distribution of coaching call recordings will constitute copyright infringement under §512 of the U.S. Copyright Law and will be pursued to the full extent of the law including, but not limited to, recovery of all monetary damages.

Please note that you have 14-days from the time you receive the link to the coaching call questionnaire form (typically sent within a few days of purchase of this service) to complete the form. If the form is not completed in that time, you will forfeit your coaching session and will be issued a refund. We may choose to decline future coaching call bookings with you in the future.

By purchasing a coaching call through Doberman Planet, you agree to these terms and conditions and our refund policy.
