The owner of the Site (Jonathan), IG², and its directors, agents, employees and affiliates assume no responsibility or liability for any consequences resulting directly or indirectly from any action or inaction you take based on the information found on or material linked to on this site.

The following terms and conditions form a binding agreement (“Agreement”) between you and Lean Scale Media e.U., a company incorporated in Austria. IG² may modify, amend, supplement and replace these terms and conditions at any time without advance notice. Your continued use of this Site after any change means you have accepted the changed terms and conditions.

1. Copyright

All materials created by IG² on the Site are protected by Austrian copyright laws as original works. The absence of a registered copyright symbol does not mean that such materials are not protected as belonging to Jonathan.

2. Links to Third Party Websites

This Site may contain links to third party websites. All such linked sites, materials and pages are not under the control of IG² and IG² is not responsible for the content contained in any linked website nor for any losses or damages you may incur as a result of the use of any such website.

3. Intellectual Property Ownership

If we have materials on this Site which you can download, a revocable, non-exclusive license is granted for you to download copies of the materials for personal, non-commercial transitory viewing only. This is the grant of a license, not a transfer of title, and under this license you may not:

a) modify or copy the materials;

b) use the materials for any commercial purpose, or for any public display (commercial or non-commercial);

c) transfer the materials to another person or “mirror” the materials on any other server.

If IG² discovers that you have illegally misappropriated or used any of the intellectual property you were granted access to, you will be blacklisted from any future programs and will seek any all extent of legal remedies and you will be required to cover all legal fees necessary to enforce these rights.

4. Our Refund Policy

We hold a very sensible ‘Do The Work’ Refund policy which basically means you have to prove you’ve gone through our entire course, do all the required work, answer a few questions which we’ll ask you once you can prove to us that you’ve done the work and then we’ll have the unilateral discretion to grant a refund. If you want a refund, contact us within 30 days of purchasing the course, and prove you’ve gone through the whole course and you’ll be able to schedule an interview with us for some follow up questions.

If you decide your purchase was not the right decision for you or your business, please contact our support team at contact@instagramgrowthguide.com within 30 days of enrollment. You must include your coursework with your request for a refund. If you request a refund and do not include your coursework by the 30th day, you will not be granted a refund. All refunds are discretionary as determined by Lean Scale Media e.U..

We are about honesty, fairness and customer satisfaction and have no problem issuing a full refund if you’ve actually tried your best and done the work but disliked the course.

4.1 An example of a situation where we wouldn’t give a refund is if someone doesn’t put in any effort, doesn’t try at our courses, doesn’t take full responsibility for their own success and then asks for their money back.

4.2. An example of a situation where we would give a refund is if you do the entire course, tried your best, share with us what you learned and then give an objectively fair reason why you want your money back. This means we are expecting the following documents and tasks to be completed:

  • Proof of all worksheets being completed

  • A link to your Instagram handle proving that you have implemented the lessons accordingly and have made an effort of using our strategies with screenshots included

  • Screenshots of the following:

    • Proof of using our tools to validate a profitable niche

    • Proof of a Content strategy created using our strategies and tools

    • Ideal audience profile created using our market research strategies and tools

  • Proof of active participation in the Facebook group

  • Proof of networking in your niche on Instagram, building out an engagement group and using it regularly

  • Screenshots and proof that you have made an effort to ask questions when experiencing challenge during the program

Disclaimer: Due to the digital nature of our course, we do not offer refunds for those who do not do their due diligence to ensure the course is the right fit for them. It is your responsibility to review our sales page and terms and conditions carefully prior to purchase, use or access to any of our products and online courses. We have taken every measure to clearly communicate through all marketing channels, communication platforms, sales pages, and webinars to educate the public on who our programs and online courses would and would not benefit.

5. List Service Money-Back Guarantee

If you have purchased from us a custom tailored list of 600 hashtags or 300 accounts in your niche using our Hashtag-List Service or Account-List Service, and you are not satisfied with your list, you have 14 days to: Request a new list; allow IG² 48 hours to send you a new list to fulfill your order; after which, if you are still not satisfied, you may request a full refund to get your money back.

6. Termination of Membership

You have the right to terminate your use and access to our membership program(s). Please send an email to contact@instagramgrowthguide.com to start the process in writing. Cancellation of your membership does not excuse you from any outstanding balances from previous monthly membership fees and any outstanding balances will become immediately due upon the cancellation request being initiated. Your membership is not cancelled until all balances owing are paid. You must initiate cancellation before your next billing date.

7. Being Blacklisted

IG² retains the right to ‘Blacklist’ you from accessing any and all materials, courses or other products or services we offer in the event that you do not pay your bills or if you steal any of our intellectual property. You will be taken off the blacklist once you pay your full amount owing.

8. Payment Plans

You will have two options of payment plans with IG². You can either pay up-front in full or you can pay in monthly installments. Please note that for monthly payments, Stripe will automatically deduct the amount from the account information you provide Stripe. In the event your payment fails, you will not be able to access any of the information or content sold through our Site or any other of our courses, products or services.

9. No Guarantees
