RBK School Terms of Purchase
You are buying access for 1 person to attend the Radical Birth Keeper School (referred to below as the “RBK School Product” or the “Program”) from Free Birth Society LLC (referred to below as “FBS”).
You must be at least 18 years of age to buy access to the RBK School.
The RBK School Product includes live course access, access to course content and materials, other information and materials provided by FBS (collectively, the “Content”) and access to a private community membership platform (hereby known as the “Online Community”).
THE SECTIONS BELOW TITLED “BINDING ARBITRATION” AND “CLASS ACTION WAIVER” CONTAIN A BINDING ARBITRATION AGREEMENT AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER. THEY AFFECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS. PLEASE READ THEM CAREFULLY.
You are responsible to pay for the RBK School Product in full (including all applicable sales tax or fees) and shall provide a valid credit card or other payment method. If you select the 2- month payment plan, your card will be charged the first payment of $3100 USD when you register and the subsequent payment of $3100 USD will be charged on the same day of the following month, totaling $6200 USD. If you select the 6- month payment plan, your card will be charged the first payment of $1100 USD when you register and the subsequent 5 payments of $1100 USD will be charged on the same day of the following 5 months, totaling $6600 USD. If you select the 12- month payment plan, your card will be charged the first payment of $550 USD when you register and the subsequent 11 payments of $550 USD will be charged on the same day of the following 11 months, totaling $6600 USD.
If you have selected a payment plan and you miss a payment, your account status will be changed to “delinquent.” You will immediately lose access to future Weeks and Modules and your access to the Site and all Content will be revoked. An email payment reminder will be sent reminding you to make your payment within 7 calendar days or you will be permanently removed from the program with NO REFUND.
FBS reserves the right to report any delinquent balance owed to a credit reporting bureau or collections agency subject to FBS's sole discretion.
To be clear, the RBK School is not a subscription payment model that can be canceled or a “pay in part” program where you can pay only for access to certain Weeks or Modules and not others. This is a full immersion program, and your payment plan is a convenience that we offer.
We do not offer any refunds under any circumstances.
COUPONS AND DISCOUNT CODES
FBS offers coupons and/or discount codes. FBS will not retroactively apply these coupons or codes, nor will FBS adjust the price of a product after payment has already been made. FBS has a strict no price adjustment policy.

BECAUSE SOME STATES OR JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF CERTAIN WARRANTIES, SOME OF THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS ON WARRANTIES IN THIS SECTION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
3) NON-DISPARAGEMENT. You agree that you will not engage in any conduct or communications with a third party, public or private, that are false or designed to disparage FBS, RBK School, Emilee Saldaya, or including, but not limited to, any remark, comment, message, information, declaration, campaign, communication, and/or other statement of any kind, whether verbal, in writing, electronically transferred, or otherwise, that might reasonably be construed to be derogatory, defamatory, libelous, or slander.
4) BINDING EFFECT. This Agreement shall be binding upon, and inure to the benefit of, the successors, executors, heirs, representatives, administrators, and permitted assigns of the parties. You have no right to assign this Agreement, by operation of law or otherwise. The RBK School Product is a non-transferable program.
5) TERMINATION. FBS is committed to providing all customers in the Program with a positive Program experience. If you fail, or FBS suspects that you have failed, to comply with any of the provisions of this Agreement, FBS, in its sole discretion and without notice to you, may: (a) limit, suspend, or terminate your participation in the RBK School Program without refund or forgiveness of monthly payments; and/or (b) terminate this Agreement.
Your obligations to FBS under this Agreement will survive expiration or termination of this Agreement for any reason.
6) CHANGES. FBS reserves the right at any time to modify this Agreement and to impose new or additional terms or conditions on your use of the RBK School Product. Such modifications and additional terms and conditions shall be effective immediately and incorporated into this Agreement. Your continued use of the RBK School Product will be deemed your acceptance thereof. The changes may be listed in an area accessible to you on the Site or you may be notified by either e-mail or postal mail. If you have any questions, please contact our legal department directly at [email protected].
7) INDEMNIFICATION. You agree to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless FBS, its owners, officers, employees, contractors, directors, licensors, related entities, affiliates, and successors from and against any and all liabilities and expense whatsoever, including, without limitation, claims, damages, judgments, awards, settlements, investigations, costs, attorneys’ fees, and disbursements, which any of such parties may incur or become obligated to pay arising out of or resulting from your breach of this Agreement and/or your misuse of the RBK School Product.

You recognize and agree that all of FBS’s owners, officers, employees, shareholders, trustees, affiliates, and successors shall not be held personally responsible or liable for any actions or representations of FBS.
8) BINDING ARBITRATION. In the event of a dispute arising under or relating to this Agreement or the Program (each, a “Dispute”), either party may elect to finally and exclusively resolve the dispute by binding arbitration governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”). Any election to arbitrate, at any time, shall be final and binding on the other party. IF EITHER PARTY CHOOSES ARBITRATION, NEITHER PARTY SHALL HAVE THE RIGHT TO LITIGATE SUCH CLAIM IN COURT OR TO HAVE A JURY TRIAL, EXCEPT EITHER PARTY MAY BRING ITS CLAIM IN ITS LOCAL SMALL CLAIMS COURT, IF PERMITTED BY THAT SMALL CLAIMS COURT RULES AND IF WITHIN SUCH COURT’S JURISDICTION. ARBITRATION IS DIFFERENT FROM COURT, AND DISCOVERY AND APPEAL RIGHTS MAY ALSO BE LIMITED IN ARBITRATION. All disputes will be resolved before a neutral arbitrator selected jointly by the parties, whose decision will be final, except for a limited right of appeal under the FAA. The arbitration shall be commenced and conducted by JAMS pursuant to its then current Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures and in accordance with the Expedited Procedures in those rules, or, where appropriate, pursuant to JAMS’ Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures. All applicable JAMS’ rules and procedures are available at the JAMS website www.jamsadr.com. Each party will be responsible for paying any JAMS filing, administrative, and arbitrator fees in accordance with JAMS rules. Judgment on the arbitrator’s award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. This clause shall not preclude parties from seeking provisional remedies in aid of arbitration from a court of appropriate jurisdiction. The arbitration may be conducted in person, through the submission of documents, by phone, or online. If conducted in person, the arbitration shall take place in Clay County, North Carolina, United States. The parties may litigate in court to compel arbitration, to stay a proceeding pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate, or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator. The parties shall cooperate in good faith in the voluntary and informal exchange of all non-privileged documents and other information (including electronically stored information) relevant to the Dispute immediately after commencement of the arbitration. Nothing in this Agreement will prevent FBS from seeking injunctive relief in any court of competent jurisdiction as necessary to protect its proprietary interests.
9) CLASS ACTION WAIVER. You agree that any arbitration or proceeding shall be limited to the Dispute between us and you individually. To the full extent permitted by law, (i) no arbitration or proceeding shall be joined with any other; (ii) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be arbitrated or resolved on a class action-basis or to utilize class action procedures; and (iii) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf of the general public or any other persons. YOU AGREE THAT YOU MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST US ONLY IN YOUR INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING.
10) MEDIATION. The parties may at any time, without prejudice to any other proceedings, seek to settle any dispute arising out of or in connection with the present contract in accordance with the International Chamber of Commerce Mediation Rules.
11) EQUITABLE RELIEF. You acknowledge and agree that in the event of a breach or threatened violation of FBS’s intellectual property rights and confidential and proprietary information by you, FBS will suffer irreparable harm and will therefore be entitled to injunctive relief to enforce this Agreement. FBS may, without waiving any other remedies under this Agreement, seek from any court having jurisdiction any interim, equitable, provisional, or injunctive relief that is necessary to protect its rights and property pending the outcome of the arbitration referenced above. You hereby irrevocably and unconditionally consent to the personal and subject matter jurisdiction of the federal and state courts in the State of North Carolina for purposes of any such action by FBS.
12) ENTIRE AGREEMENT. This Agreement constitutes the entire understanding and agreement of the Parties with respect to its subject matter and supersedes all prior and contemporaneous agreements or understandings, inducements, or conditions, express or implied, written or oral, between the parties.
13) COMPLIANCE WITH LAW. The parties shall comply with all applicable laws in performing this Agreement. Whenever there is any conflict between any provision of this Agreement and any applicable law, the applicable law shall prevail.
14) NO WAIVER. The failure of any party to insist on the performance of any obligation hereunder shall not be deemed to be a waiver of such obligation. Waiver of any breach of any provision shall not be deemed to be a waiver of any other breach of such provision or any other provision.
