Monthly and Yearly Subscriptions
We offer monthly and yearly subscriptions, which gains you access to the Site, Materials, and Services so long as you have paid for access to the Site. Monthly and Yearly subscriptions are set to automatically renew. You may cancel your subscription at any time prior to your renewal date. Cancellations after your renewal will not be eligible for a refund for that month or year’s renewal.
We offer a Lifetime Membership, which gains you access to all courses under Cgfastrack.com for as long as we host our Site. If we decide later to not host the Site any further, we will provide a downloadable link to the courses and course content (Materials) for up to one year after the website is taken offline. The Lifetime Membership applies only to the www.cgfasttrack.com website; We may build other websites under different domains that may also have Materials and courses that we do not make available on the www.cgfasttrack.com website, and the Lifetime Membership does not apply to those different domains and the content therein.
Lifetime Membership Monthly Payments
In order to access the Site, Materials, and Services (including the courses), you must pay consistently and consecutively every month on a month-to-month basis. Failed payments for any reason may result in termination of access to the Site and termination of your Membership. One or more failures to comply with these terms may result in immediate termination of your Membership. We do not support pausing monthly payments for excessive amounts of time. Not complying with these terms may result in payments being voided. Previous payments are not included if you choose to return.
Lifetime Discounts for Monthly and Yearly Subscriptions
Discounts are void if you cancel your subscription. We reserve the right to stop hosting the website and providing Materials, products, or Services at any time. If this happens, we will provide you with a downloadable link to the courses available for up to one year or until your paid subscription billing period has ended, whichever is first.
Subscription to Lifetime Membership Transition Upgrade
Until Aug 31st, 2021, we offered our members the ability to upgrade and credit all of their previous subscription payments toward a Lifetime Membership. Cancelling a subscription voids all progress applicable toward any Lifetime Membership. You must contact firstname.lastname@example.org within 30 days of paying in full and request that we credit your processed subscription payments in the form of a credit to or refund for your Lifetime Membership. Subscription payments in excess of a Lifetime Membership are void and are not reimbursable or applicable for this credit or upgrade.
To cancel a subscription, you must go to the Site and into your account settings and directly indicate your intent to cancel the subscription. In the rare occasion you cannot access the Site in order to cancel your subscription, you may indicate your cancellation by requesting so from our team at email@example.com. As of February 11, 2021, Subscription cancellation will void all progress on payments that would otherwise be considered eligible towards the Lifetime Membership. It is your responsibility to cancel the subscription before your auto-renewal date.
Lifetime Membership Cancellations
Upon joining the CGFT Lifetime Membership, you are committing to paying the full six (6) monthly payments or the full one-time payment. Under extreme circumstances entirely in the discretion of CGFT, we will potentially permit a cancellation of these recurring payments. You will lose access immediately upon cancellation. If you decide to re-subscribe, any previous payments will not be considered applicable towards your Membership. You will not be eligible to re-subscribe with the monthly plan option upon cancellation. If you choose to return after cancellation, you must pay the fee in full. Monthly payments are in the discretion of CGFT and may be revoked for insufficient funds or other failed payments.
Course Release Dates
New course release dates are not guaranteed to be released on specific dates or by specific times. Release dates will fluctuate based on course length, instructor availability, and other variables in place of course creation. We are fully transparent about release dates for already developed and released Materials, Services and courses, and urge you to consider this when making your purchase decisions. We promoted release schedules during the “early access special subscription” sale, from the period of April 5, 2020 through August 18, 2020 as being an average of two new courses a month. We have successfully released 11 courses during this time, roughly an estimated average of 2.4+ courses a month. This release schedule is not to be expected post August 18, 2020, which marks the end of the early access subscription sale phase. Release dates may be modified, altered, or postponed based on factors within the discretion of CGFT.
New Course Releases
Will there be a new course released every month forever? No. The Blender Track will include 30+ courses. We do not believe in creating excessive amounts of content. Similar to a school, our content will be finite. We choose quality over quantity. How long before each new course? The release dates will vary. It will take many, many months to complete all 30+ courses for the Blender Track.
