Privacy and Cookies
Our Online Community, The Hamlet
We take privacy very seriously. All information posted in The Hamlet by any member is to be considered strictly confidential. Any member found to be in violation of this trust will have any account immediately terminated, and future access will be denied. If the terminated member has purchased an annual membership, a refund of full months only will be granted. No prorated refunds are available for partial months or for monthly, quarterly, or biannual memberships. If you have evidence that another member is violating this confidentiality policy, please contact us at hello <at> catholicmontessorihome.com.

Terms of Sale
Guest Access. We offer complimentary Guest Access to The Hamlet with no credit card required. The time period may last from two to four weeks at our discretion. To receive this access, you will be required to answer several questions during the checkout process. Upon a satisfactory review, you will receive your login credentials. Your Guest Access will expire at the end of the specified Guest Access period. However, should you sign up for a subscription prior to the expiration of your Guest Access, your access will continue uninterrupted.
Occasionally, we may offer a paid trial to The Hamlet as part of a discounted membership offer. If you take advantage of the discounted membership offer, credit card information will be required when signing up for the trial period. If you do not cancel within your trial period, your card will be charged automatically at the end of the specified trial period. By signing up for the paid trial period, you are specifically giving your authorization for your credit card to be charged automatically under the terms of your subscription unless or until you cancel.
Subscriptions. When you sign up for a membership to The Hamlet, you are agreeing to a recurring subscription on the cycle you select from any currently available offers, whether monthly, quarterly, annually, or another basis. You expressly acknowledge, agree, and authorize our secure, third-party payment processor to charge your provided payment method according to your subscription terms until you cancel it within your account membership area and also in writing, five business days before your scheduled charge date or until we discontinue providing the agreed-upon Services.
Cancellation. You may cancel your subscription at any time by canceling your subscription from within your account. If you do not cancel at least five business days prior to your scheduled charge date as listed in your account, your card may still be charged. After you have canceled from within your account, send an email to hello <at> catholicmontessorihome.com to notify us. Failure to log in to or to actively participate in The Hamlet does not constitute automatic cancellation. You must actively cancel your subscription in accordance with these Terms. All cancellation requests will take effect at the end of the billing period in which the request was made. Access to The Hamlet will be available until the end of that period. Again, no prorated refunds for the current month will be granted. Unused full months of an annual subscription will be refunded upon request. Cancelling a membership does not remove you from our email list. You must separately unsubscribe so that we do not contact you again.
Pricing. The subscription price at which you become a member of The Hamlet remains fixed until you cancel your subscription. Should you cancel and rejoin The Hamlet at a future date, your subscription price may be higher at that future date.
One-Time Purchases. If you make a One-Time Purchase of an item offered for sale on this website, your credit card will be charged according to the terms of our third-party payment processor. Any purchases of products digital in nature are non-refundable. In the future, we may also offer affiliate links in The Shop, which link to third-party sites. The full Affiliate Disclosure will be made available at that time.
Payment and Billing Information. By providing credit card information, you attest that you are authorized to use that payment method and are authorizing our third-party payment processor to charge your provided method for the total amount due (including any applicable fees and taxes). If you are authorizing a recurring subscription charge, and the payment method is invalid in any way when a charge is attempted, your subscription and community access may be suspended until your payment is processed. Your access will be reinstated once the problem is resolved. Prorated refunds will not be granted for any suspension period.

We may make changes to these Terms periodically. The “Last Updated” date is available at the top of this page. Unless otherwise noted, all changes will be effective immediately.
