Terms of Service
The MR Site and Services
1. The Site and the Services provide general education and information designed to assist users with improving their mindfulness, focus, and relaxation/well-being generally and to assist them to reach their personal development and life goals through coaching and coaching like methods and techniques (collectively, “The Personal Development Program”), by and through MR’s proprietary content, videos, courses, course materials, and educational materials.
2. The Personal Development Program is based on a cooperative relationship and is intended to be informational and educational, through the furnishing of encouragement, information, support and guidance, to help the user make its own decisions and undertake action to facilitate the user’s goals. You are fully and solely responsible for all information provided to MR, and all your decisions, actions or inactions resulting from or relating to The Personal Development Program experience. You acknowledge that The Personal Development Program is a comprehensive process that may involve different areas of your life, including work, finances, health, relationships, education and recreation. You agree that deciding how to handle these issues, incorporate The Personal Development Program principles into those areas and implement choices is exclusively your responsibility. Accordingly, please understand that MR does not guarantee or warrant any particular outcome, result or success of The Personal Development Program, and expressly disclaims any such guarantee or warranty.
3. The Personal Development Program is not a substitute for medical, psychological, psychiatric, wellness, therapeutic or other diagnosis, care, counseling, advice, consulting or treatment, or for any medicine and does not involve the diagnosis or treatment of mental disorders as defined by the American Psychiatric Association. The Personal Development Program is not a substitute and is not to be used as a substitute for counseling, psychotherapy, psychoanalysis, mental health care, substance abuse treatment, or other professional advice by legal or medical professionals. You understand that although the Site and/or Services may provide you access to certain general medical information as well as the means to communicate with coaching or wellness professionals, the Site and/or Services do not and cannot themselves provide any medical advice. As a result, MR advises you to always seek the advice of a physician or other qualified healthcare provider with any questions regarding your personal health or medical issues. Never disregard, avoid, or delay in obtaining medical advice from your doctor or other qualified healthcare provider because of something you have read on the Site and/or Services. If you have or suspect that you have a medical problem or condition, please contact a qualified healthcare professional immediately.
4. The information provided through MR, the Site, and the Services is provided for educational, entertainment and general informational purposes only and should not be considered medical advice or a substitute for individual medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment. It is strongly recommend to always seek the advice of a qualified and licensed physician or other qualified health provider in connection with any and all questions you may have regarding a medical condition, including information regarding which drugs or treatment may be appropriate for you.
5. MR is not a crisis center nor does MR, the Site, and the Services provide crisis services. If you are thinking about suicide or if you are considering taking actions that may cause harm to you or others or if you feel that you or any other person may be in any danger call your local crisis center, dial 911, or go to the nearest emergency room. If you are having suicidal thoughts and live in the US you can also call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-784-2433.

If you fail to update your payment method within a reasonable amount of time, MR may cancel your subscription.

Additionally, if required by law, you are responsible for reporting and paying certain taxes in connection with your purchase and use. Such taxes may include duties, customs fees, or other taxes (other than income tax), along with any related penalties or interest, as applicable to your purchase or country of purchase.
a) One-time Non-Live Presentation Courses.

c) Happiness Baseline Refunds.
The Happiness Baseline Accountability Deposit Refund
Specifically for the Happiness Baseline program we offer a conditional money back satisfaction guarantee, “The Happiness Baseline Accountability Deposit Refund.” To qualify for the refund you have to complete The Happiness Baseline program within ten weeks (10) weeks of registering for the course.
Completion of the Happiness Baseline program means you have:
- Watched all videos comprising the program;
- Listened to all of the audio materials comprising the program; and
- Completed all of the daily and other program exercises and assessments on a daily basis.
Please make sure you have fulfilled all of the above conditions and obligations before you submit your refund request. The purpose of this course is to create new habits. And it is vital that you practice those habits daily. We want you to succeed at the course and get the results and this is reliant on you consistently doing the exercises.
Please note that we are able to verify via our system logs what has been completed and when and MR has logs of all task and assessment completion including full dates and timestamps. Please also note that if we determine in our reasonable discretion that you have artificially attempted to complete tasks and assessments that are supposed to be completed over the span of several days in one or more days, you will not be eligible for the refund.
If you believe you qualify for the refund and have satisfied the above obligations and conditions, please complete the following steps:
STEP 1. Fully complete and submit the refund request form available at this link no later than by midnight Pacific Standard Time (12AM PST) within (10) weeks of registering for the course on the date you were registered for the course.
(IMPORTANT NOTE: MR will NOT grant refunds to any late refund requests and will only grant refunds to customers who properly and timely submit the refund request form. Merely contacting MR customer support shall not be deemed nor treated as a properly submitted refund request).
STEP 2. After we receive your refund request, we will proceed with the refund eligibility verification process within five (5) to seven (7) days. If we have questions or need additional verification, we will contact you by email to the email address associated with your account
STEP 3. Once your eligibility is verified and confirmed you will receive a confirmation email to the email address associated with your account, and your refund will be processed within three (3) business days from the date of the confirmation email.
(IMPORTANT NOTE: Once we process your refund, you will no longer have any access to The Happiness Baseline.)
Pay What You Want Option
On completion of the program, if you find The Happiness Baseline beneficial on some level and wish to support MR’s work and mission you may on your accord email MR to request a reduction in the refund amount by any amount you wish.
Any refunds allowed will incur a 5% processing fee, which will be automatically deducted by us.
4. Month-to-Month Subscription Cancellations:
a) MR does not offer refunds for payments made on a month-month subscription plan. To avoid being charged during a free trial promotion, you must cancel your subscription before your free trial ends. Your subscription will continue on a month-to-month basis unless and until you cancel or the subscription is suspended or discontinued by MR. You must cancel your subscription before your monthly renewal date to avoid the next billing. If you cancel your subscription, cancellation will be effective at the end of the current monthly period; you will continue to have access to your subscription for the remainder of that period, but you will not receive a refund.
Any refunds allowed will incur a 5% processing fee, which will be automatically deducted by us.
