As advertised throughout the Services, Privacy Bootcamp offers its Users a limited right to be refunded certain fees and charges, subject to the following terms and conditions (hereinafter, “the Privacy Bootcamp Guarantee”). Refunds are offered only in accordance with the terms hereof or in Privacy Bootcamp's sole and complete discretion.
In order to be eligible to obtain a refund in accordance with the Privacy Bootcamp Guarantee, Users must satisfy each of the five following requirements:
(1) A User must have purchased access to a restricted portion of the Services offered to Users accessible electronically directly on the Privacy Bootcamp website (www.privacybootcamp.com) for the purpose of studying and preparing for an examination administered by a third party (hereinafter, “the course material”), including but not limited to an examination offered by the International Association of Privacy Professionals (hereinafter, “qualifying exam”).
(2) A User must satisfactorily complete all portions of the purchased course material that relates to the qualifying exam as indicated by a “100% Complete” designation on the progress bar for the course material on the Account Dashboard page. In most cases, completing the course material for a qualifying exam will require the User to review all study guide Modules, receive a passing grade on all Knowledge Review Modules, and receive a passing grade on two full-length practice examinations offered through the Services.
(3) A User must complete a qualifying exam to which the course material relates on a date after the user has completed the course material as noted in the preceding numeral (i.e., Users are not entitled to a refund if 100% of the course material is completed only after completing a qualifying exam).
(4) A User must have received a non-passing grade on the qualifying exam to which the course materials relate.
(5) A User must provide satisfactory proof to us, which shall be considered satisfactory in the sole and complete discretion of Privacy Bootcamp, that the User has received a non-passing grade on a qualifying exam in accordance with the other terms of this Privacy Bootcamp Guarantee. Satisfactory proof of a non-passing grade includes but is not limited to providing a copy of a User’s “score report” to Privacy Bootcamp.
The Privacy Bootcamp Guarantee does not apply to the purchase of any Services offered by Privacy Bootcamp that are available for purchase on partner websites, including but not limited to any Services offered for purchase through Gumroad, Inc. (https://gumroad.com) and any standalone .pdf files such as Privacy Bootcamp CIPP/US Practice Exam Vol. 1, Privacy Bootcamp CIPP/E Practice Exam Vol. 1, or Privacy Bootcamp CIPM Practice Exam Vol. 1. Refunds may be provided for purchases made on partner websites, including but not limited to any Services offered for purchase through Gumroad, Inc. (https://gumroad.com) in the sole and complete discretion of Privacy Bootcamp. Purchases made through Gumroad, Inc. may be subject to additional terms and services, which are available here: https://gumroad.com/terms-of-use.
In the event that a User obtains a refund of fees and charges in accordance with the terms of the Privacy Bootcamp Guarantee, we retain the right to terminate future access to the User of that portion of the Services to which the refunded fees and charges relate.
We reserve the right, at any time and without prior notice, to modify the terms of the Privacy Bootcamp Guarantee and/or to no longer offer the Privacy Bootcamp Guarantee. In the event that the terms of the Privacy Bootcamp Guarantee are modified or if the Privacy Bootcamp Guarantee is no longer offered by us, any User that has purchased access to any or all portions of the Services at a time in which the Privacy Bootcamp Guarantee was offered to Users will continue to retain the right to be refunded all fees and charges in accordance with the terms of the Privacy Bootcamp Guarantee then in effect at the time of purchase.
In order to request a refund in accordance with the Privacy Bootcamp Guarantee, please contact us at Hello@PrivacyBootcamp.com. In doing so, please provide all documentation required in accordance with the above terms.

You agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of a state court located in Wilmington, Delaware or the United States District Court for the District of Delaware, for any actions for which we retain the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of our copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property or proprietary rights, as set forth in the Arbitration provision below.
For any dispute with Privacy Bootcamp, you agree to first contact us at Hello@PrivacyBootcamp.com and attempt to resolve the dispute with us informally. In the unlikely event that Privacy Bootcamp has not been able to resolve a dispute it has with you after attempting to do so for a period of sixty (60) days, we each agree to resolve any claim, dispute, or controversy (excluding any Privacy Bootcamp claims for injunctive or other equitable relief) arising out of or in connection with or relating to this Agreement, or the breach or alleged breach thereof, by binding arbitration by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in the city of Wilmington, Delaware under the commercial rules then in effect for the AAA, except as provided herein. The award rendered by the arbitrator shall include costs of arbitration, reasonable attorneys’ fees and reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses, and any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Nothing in this Section shall be deemed as preventing Privacy Bootcamp from seeking injunctive or other equitable relief from the courts as necessary to protect any of Privacy Bootcamp’s proprietary interests.
ALL CLAIMS AGAINST PRIVACY BOOTCAMP MUST BE BROUGHT IN THE PARTIES’ INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS ACTION, COLLECTIVE ACTION, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. THIS WAIVER ALSO APPLIES TO CLASS ARBITRATION, AND, UNLESS WE AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S CLAIMS.
