The Terms of Use provided here preside over your use of the SheCodes site, services, and associated outlets (including, but not limited to, our social media outlets). Please carefully read through these terms and contact us at [email protected] if you have any questions, comments, or concerns.

Using SheCodes

Authorized Users
By using our site, you are forming an agreement with SheCodes to follow our Terms of Use. When you create a profile on SheCodes, you are obligated to provide us with accurate and complete information and will alert us if any of this information changes.

By using our site, which provides consent for our Terms of Use and associated policies, you are granted a license to use our services. This license is personal, limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, and can be revoked at any time. The content that is shared with you by using our services, such as course materials, is only for your personal, non-commercial use. The course materials and associated content that we provide you with cannot be used for commercial purposes. When you use our services, you will not gain any intellectual property rights of content that you access on our site and associated outlets.

Fulfillment Policy
After payment, you will receive access to the course platform within 24 hours. Please note that you must use a third-party platform (Google or Facebook) in order to log in to the SheCodes site, create a SheCodes account, and access the course material.

You will gain access to your workshop materials only on the start date of your workshop. (You may choose whatever start date you’d like). If you join a workshop that has already started, you’ll gain access to the workshop materials as soon as you gain access to the course platform.

Information on SheCodes Courses

SheCodes courses are scheduled in advance and there are deadlines to meet during workshops. However, in the case that an unexpected event should occur, SheCodes reserves the right to postpone, cancel, reschedule, or pause any course or part of a course at any point in time. SheCodes also reserves the right to modify the assessments and/or assessment system at any time. Please reference the Disclaimers and Limited Liability sections below - courses offered are subject to these sections.

No University Credit
SheCodes courses do not count as academic credit at universities UNLESS a specific university indicates that the course will count as academic credit at their institution. If this is the case, then a course certificate may be used as proof of completion of the workshop. Even if one university decides to award credit for a SheCodes course, there should not be an assumption that other universities will do the same. There is no obligation (legal or otherwise) by SheCodes, its course instructors, or its staff to have a course recognized by any university, academic institution, or other accredited organization. Recognition must be initiated by a student and/or a university and it is the responsibility of these parties to ensure that the SheCodes course counts as academic credit; this is in no way the responsibility of SheCodes company or staff.

Relationship between Student and SheCodes
When you participate in any SheCodes course, you are not in any way establishing a relationship with any of our sponsors or affiliates.

SheCodes course content may be accessed for life once purchased. Access to the content does not expire or end with your participation in the workshop.

Refund & Cancellation Policy

We offer a digital content service and as such, by confirming their payment, customers are consenting to waive their right to a withdrawal period. This is applicable to both up-front and monthly payments. Read below to understand our policy in more detail 🙂 

Refunds for up-front payments

  • Can I reschedule my course if I’m unable to start on the date I initially selected?
Of course, no problem at all! We know life can get in the way sometimes! You’re welcome to extend your deadlines or change your start date if needed, you can do this from inside your account. 😊 If you need help with this, email us at [email protected]

  • Can I get a refund for my workshop?
Since we offer lifetime access to digital learning content, we don’t offer refunds on our workshops. ❤️ Once you’ve confirmed your purchase, we’re not able to return the amount you have paid. But you’ll have lifetime access to your material, so you can still use it in the future when you’re ready! If you’re paying monthly, please read below for more information on canceling your payment plan.

Note that we don’t offer refunds even in the following situations:
- You haven’t started the course yet;
- You’ve started the course and didn’t like coding;
- You’ve started the course but are unsatisfied with the course material;
- You’ve started the course but didn’t like the feedback you received;
- You’ve decided to purchase a different course with another school; 
- You’ve purchased a longer package but haven’t completed all workshops included;
- You’ve purchased or received a SheCodes workshop as a gift;

  • I still don’t understand why I can’t get a refund. Can you explain?
Of course, we’re always happy to clarify any doubts about our policy! When you purchase a SheCodes workshop, you’re purchasing lifetime access to our learning material. We decided to offer students the flexibility to change their start date without any extra fee as often as they need to. So you’ll always be able to benefit from the service you purchased from us, even if it’s much later down the road!
Additionally, students who are uncertain if they like coding or if they will like our learning method, don’t have to commit to a long program from the start if they’re not ready. They are welcome to watch our free session, SheCodes Express, and start with our shorter programs first 😊

Still have questions? No worries! Write us at [email protected] and we’re happy to clarify your doubts!
  • What if I have already purchased a workshop and then there is a promotion, or I receive a discount?
Unfortunately, if you’ve already confirmed your registration, we’re not able to apply any discounts retroactively. ❤️ This applies even if you’re paying monthly.

This means that we’re not able to:
- Refund the difference in prices;
- Refund your purchase so you can buy the course at a cheaper price using the coupon or the promotion.
- Change the amount you’re paying monthly to match the discounted price, in the case of monthly payment plans,

 If there’s an ongoing sale or you received a coupon but notice the discount is not applied to the price at checkout, please reach out to our team before confirming. We’ll be happy to help at [email protected] 😃

  • What if I purchase SheCodes through a third-party marketplace?
If you purchase any SheCodes services on a Third Party marketplace, then the refund policies of that third party will be applicable. SheCodes is not responsible for refunding any payment made through a third-party affiliate.
But please feel free to contact us if you’ve uncertain about a third-party purchase and we’d be happy to confirm if it's a legitimate purchase. ❤️

Cancellation of a monthly payment plan

  • I’m paying monthly. Can I cancel my monthly payment plan?
If you’re unable to finish your monthly payment plan due to extenuating circumstances but want to keep learning with us, contact us at [email protected] and we’ll work on a solution with you! ❤️ 💪 We’ll do our best to make sure you can continue your learning journey! 

If you don’t wish to continue with your monthly payment plan, we can cancel your future payments but we’ll need to make sure you have completed enough monthly payments to cover the workshops in which you’re already enrolled. This applies even if you haven’t started or accessed the material of those workshops yet. 

So it’s possible that we won’t be able to cancel your future payment right away and that you will need to complete further payments before you’re able to cancel your monthly plan. But no worries, we’ll explain everything clearly and will let you know at what point you’ll be able to cancel your payments.

  • Can I get a refund on a monthly payment?
No, we don’t offer refunds on up-front or monthly payments as we explain above. ❤️ If you cancel your monthly payment plan, you’ll forfeit the payment(s) you’ve already paid. 

We’re also not able to refund the difference in the price of the workshops you’ll keep access to after canceling your monthly plan.

At She Codes, we honor our policies and treat any violations very seriously. We aim to create a community where everyone feels welcome to learn. ❤️ As such, we reserve the right to remove from our workshops any users who violate any of the terms listed in our Terms of Use or any other coinciding policies, as well as prevent these users from re-enrolling. We are not obliged to grant removed users a refund for their purchase.
