If you do not agree to these terms, you may not make a purchase.
- the site: ampersand.co and all products and services available on it
- us: Ampersand Coaching, LLC (a Pennsylvania limited liability company)
- your content: anything you post or upload on this site
- our content: everything we post on this site owned by us (including text, sound, graphics, or other materials)
We offer services for sale on this site, but do not use a third-party shopping cart. To avoid learning your credit card information, we’ve partnered with PayPal, Stripe, and Intuit Quickbooks Self-Employed to send invoices and securely process payment. As such, we never learn or store your credit card information. Both providers share your name, address, and email with us.
From time to time, we’ll include affiliate links. And if you click them and make a purchase, we’ll get a commission in exchange. These funds help support all the content that we create.
We also are a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to amazon.com.
These links are to products or services that we’ve purchased or think you might like. And we aren’t going to hide which links are which. If it’s an affiliate link, you’ll be told.
If it’s not called out as an affiliate link, it’s not. And it is there to help you learn more or dig deeper and is not in exchange for payment.
