We are committed to protecting the online privacy of children. In accordance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (”COPPA”), we will not knowingly collect any personally identifiable information from children under the age of thirteen (13) without first obtaining parental consent. Prior to providing any personally identifiable information (your name, email address, address, phone number etc.), children under the age of thirteen (13) must have a parent or legal guardian complete and return a Parental Consent Form to Trust Building Academy, LLC on the contact page of this website.
The consent form states that the child’s “Parent” or “Legal Guardian”, by his or her signature, consents to the collection and transfer of the child’s personally identifiable information. Consent may be revoked by completing a “Revocation of Parental Consent Form”. In compliance with COPPA, we are sensitive about children consulting with parents or guardians before furnishing personal information or ordering anything online.
It is also our intention to adhere to the Children’s Advertising Review Unit (CARU) Guidelines on Internet advertising with its special sensitivities regarding solicitations to children under thirteen (13). We encourage parents/guardians to supervise and join their children in exploring cyberspace.

We cannot guarantee any results or outcomes if you choose to purchase an online course, audio program, workshop, or any other products, documents, programs or professional service offered on this website. As with any business-related program, product or service that you purchase, your results may vary, and will be based on many variables, so therefore no guarantees can be made. You agree that Trust Building Academy, LLC and employees are not responsible for the success or failure of your personal life decisions, goals and relationships, business decisions, the increase or decrease of your finances or income level, your well-being or the well-being of your spouse or other relationships, or any other result or consequence of any kind that you may have as a result of information presented to you through our website, blog, social media, or our programs, products and services. You are solely responsible for the outcomes, consequences and results for your life, life choices, business, business clients and all other related aspects of your life, business and well-being.
All Trust Building Academy, LLC website products created by TBA are final sales and are non-refundable.
Trust Building Academy, LLC occasionally partners as an affiliate with other businesses. For example, we are an affiliate with Amazon. This means that any time you click on a book recommendation link in our resources page, and should you then choose to purchase that book through the Amazon website, Trust Building Academy, LLC will receive a very small percentage of that sale. Please understand that we do not market on behalf of Amazon or any other affiliate. We only share books, products, and resources that we support, use and believe in and we do not sell to clients or non-clients. If you choose to purchase a product on this website, or if you choose to purchase a product on another website where we provide the link, you agree to assume full responsibility for using the information on this site, and you understand and agree that Trust Building Academy, LLC and its employees, associates or affiliates, are not responsible or liable for any claim, loss, or damage resulting from its use by you or any user. We cannot guarantee any results or outcomes if you choose to purchase a workshop e-kit, an e-book, an e-packet of information, or any other products, documents, programs or professional service offered on this website or through a website link we provide or an affiliates website or business. As with any business-related program, product, material, book or service that you purchase, your results may vary, and will be based on many variables, so therefore no guarantees can be made.
Restrictions on Use of Materials
While we believe the information, products, materials, resources, services and documents provided on and through the Site to be factual and accurate, but we cannot guarantee that they are. The information, products, materials, resources, services and documents on this Site are not intended to be a substitute for legal, financial, professional medical or mental health advice, diagnosis, or treatment. Always seek the advice of your healthcare provider with any questions you may have regarding a medical or mental health condition or treatment. Reliance on the information or the documents contained on the Site is solely at your own risk.
Because you may be residing in a different part of the country, and the law varies by state, as the law is constantly changing, it is important to understand that it affects each individual and business in different ways. As a result, if you are seeking services or products to support you or your business, it is recommended to seek outside financial and/or legal counsel relating to your specific circumstances as needed. If you have legal and financial questions or concerns, it is advisable to consult with your tax accountant or lawyer for all questions and concerns you have, may have, or hereafter have regarding any and all information, products and services presented or sold by Trust Building Academy, LLC website, products, services and programs pertaining to your specific legal or financial situation.
Clinical Guarantees for Healing
No therapist or counselor can guarantee results for a therapy client. Results may vary depending upon what the client is seeking therapy for, how they, the client, approach the treatment recommendations, how they, the client, engage in the clinical process, how they, the client, follow the treatment plan, and what specific and unique issues and challenges they, the client, bring into the clinical relationship. Clients should not base their expectations of their particular therapy experience with any counselor associated with Trust Building Academy, LLC, or their particular healing, results and any other therapy expectations, based on the testimonials provided on this website, or any other information they have received about Trust Building Academy, LLC beyond their own individual experience. Each individual will have a different result based on their unique experience.
It is unethical and illegal for a therapist to solicit testimonials from a client. Thus, all testimonials provided on this website are the direct request from former clients who had asked Trust Building Academy, LLC to specifically include their remarks here. Prior to inclusion on the website, these requests have been processed with the client, meaning, there has been a thorough discussion and a clinical assessment by the Founding Director before including the testimonial. Additionally, even if asked by the client to do so, Trust Building Academy, LLC will not include any identifying information [e.g. age, gender, city, initials, names] for the purpose of maintaining client confidentiality. Clients also understand that at any point they may request that their testimonial be removed. Clients also understand that should they return for further counseling, their kind words will be removed from the website in order to maintain the highest level of integrity around boundaries as supporting all aspects of the clinical relationship and client is the most important part of the work of every Trust Building Academy, LLC therapist.
