Terms and Conditions

Last updated: 27 October 2018

Here’s how the relationship will work between you and the service at https://courses.shellydavies.co.nz/ operated by Waiora Design Ltd.

It’d be cool if you read these before using the website, because you agree to them when you sign up!


When you sign up or make a purchase, we’ll ask you for info like payment, billing, and shipping details.

When you provide it, you’re agreeing that:

  • you’re legally allowed to provide it
  • it’s true
  • we can provide it to third parties as needed to complete transactions and provide services.

We can refuse or cancel your order at any time for reasons including:

  • errors (made by you or us)
  • availability of the service or product
  • if we suspect fraudulent activity.

Availability, Errors and Inaccuracies

We are constantly updating our offerings of products and services. We’re human, and we might make mistakes, so we don’t make any guarantee other than that:

  • we’ll do our best to get information correct
  • we’ll fix it as soon as we find any mistakes.


When you create an account with us, we trust that you’ve been honest and given us everything we need. If you don’t you’re in breach of the terms, and we’ll probably terminate your account.

You’re the boss of your password, not us. You don’t have permission to share it and give anyone else access. Be a good human – we’re a business and we’re selling our services. We trust you won’t share them for free.

Please tell us if you think someone else has got hold of your password.


Any fees are on the website or landing page you made a purchase through. Payment methods and taxes will be specified during the checkout process. Your bank or credit card provider might charge their own fees and we’ve got nothing to do with that!


We give our best advice as professionals with credibility in our industry.  We’ll never give advice that we wouldn’t follow ourselves, and we’ll never knowingly put you at any professional, personal or financial risk. But, if you take our advice and apply it in a way that puts you at any risk, we don’t accept any responsibility for that.
