Things You Should Know About When Using This Website
We’ve tried to put the following legal mumbo jumbo into simple easy to read terms in hopes that you’ll actually read this. The following helps explain how and how not to use our site and services, and by using our site and services you agree to submit to all of it. This is a legally binding contract between you and SundayU whether you are a user in the US, the EU, or anywhere else in the world. Please make sure you read it, because it is important. If you don’t agree, please immediately stop using the site and contact us so we can learn more about your concerns.
Submitting Content & Resources
We often accept user submitted resources and content. When submitting a blog post and/or resources (documents, ebooks, files, etc.) on our site you are agreeing to let us publish the content and promote it publicly via social media, email, and other advertising means. We may also edit your post for grammar, spelling, and general flow but we will contact you with any major changes to the content.
We own our stuff; you own yours. You will retain author rights to the content you submit to us, but you are giving us irrevocable rights to publish the content for as long as we want to.
We reserve the right to reject your content for any reason, and can remove it from the site at any time without notice.
We prefer that you submit exclusive original content to our site in order to provide the most relevant and helpful content for our community.
Lastly, only submit your own work. Don’t copy from someone else. If you quote someone or use someone else’s idea, give credit where credit is due (using links, page numbers, etc. where the original content can easily be found).
Refunds & Money Back Guarantee
This is not a “content-drip” website where you pay a monthly fee and gain access to only some material at a time. Instead we provide all access to everything we have, and continually add new content each month.
In the event that you are unhappy with your subscription and would like a refund, please contact us within 30 days of your initial purchase and we would be happy to process a refund and close your account for you.
