These Terms and Conditions govern your use of our service. As used in these Terms and Conditions, “Peerless Academy service”, “our service” or “the service” means the service provided by Peerless Academy for watching videos, including all features and functionalities, website, and user interfaces, as well as all content and software associated with our service.
Access to Our site is free of charge although member content is not free to access unless you hold a current paid subscription for member content.
It is your responsibility to make any and all arrangements necessary in order to access our Site.
Access to Our site is provided “as is”. We may alter, suspend or discontinue Our site (or any part of it) at any time and without notice. We will not be liable to you in any way if Our Site (or any part of it) is unavailable at any time and for any period unless you hold a current paid subscription for member content. If you hold a current paid subscription for member content we will enhance the site regularly by adding new membership content videos.
All content included on our site, (whether paid for or free content) and the copyright and other intellectual property rights subsisting in that content, unless specifically labelled otherwise, belongs to Us.
Memberships and Paid Content
We make all reasonable efforts to ensure that all descriptions of paid content available from Us are accurate. We include menu options showing the current level and type of available content. You will not be able to view any of the membership content videos unless you have a paid subscription membership, but you will be able to see the range of content via free access to Our site.
We will regularly add new videos to Our site and this will enhance and expand the range of paid-for content available to members with an active subscription.
Payment for your membership subscription must always be made in advance. Your membership will run from the date of purchase for one month or one year(depending on your subscription) and the actual expiry date will be shown on your order confirmation. We will send you an email to let you know that your subscription is active. You can find specific details regarding your membership with Peerless Academy by visiting our website and logging into your account.

The membership fee for our service will be billed on a monthly basis to your Payment Method on the calendar day corresponding to the commencement of your paid membership.

You can change your Payment Method by visiting our website and logging into your account. If a payment is not successfully settled, due to expiration, insufficient funds, or otherwise, and you do not change your Payment Method or cancel your account, we will suspend your access to the service until we have obtained a valid Payment Method. You authorize us to continue billing the Payment Method, as it may be updated and you remain responsible for any uncollected amounts. This may result in a change to your payment billing dates. For certain Payment Methods, the issuer of your Payment Method may charge you a foreign transaction fee or other charges. Check with your Payment Method service provider for details.
CANCELLATION: You can log in to your account and cancel your Peerless Academy membership at any time, and you will continue to have access to the Peerless Academy service through to the end of your monthly billing period. We do not provide refunds or credits for any partial-month membership periods.
To cancel, log into your account and cancel.
If you cancel your membership, your account will automatically close at the end of your current billing period. To see when your account will close, click “Billing details” on the “Your Account” page.
We do not process membership cancellation requests sent to us by email. You will need to cancel by accessing your Peerless Academy account.
Provision of Paid Content
When you place an order for a membership subscription you will be required to expressly acknowledge that you wish the paid content to be available to you immediately by accepting these Terms and Conditions
By accessing (e.g. streaming) any of the paid content you will lose your legal right to cancel if you change your mind (the “cooling-off period”). You will be required to expressly acknowledge this by accepting these Terms and Conditions
In some circumstances we may need to suspend the provision of Paid Content (in full or part) for limited periods to fix technical problems or to make minor changes. If possible, we will inform you in advance if it is planned work, however there may be limited occasions where the site is unavailable for short periods as a result of circumstances beyond our control, such as server issues.
Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you discover any technical problem with accessing your paid content and cannot find a solution in our FAQ section.
Changes to the Price or Service Plans
We may change the price of our service from time to time; however, any price changes or changes to our service plans will apply to new subscribers only and not those with an active subscription taken out at a lower price. Please note that this does not apply to any discount codes used at the time of purchase of a subscription, which will only be valid for as long as that subscription is active. Once the subscription is cancelled or is no longer active then any discount code applied to that subscription will not apply to any subsequent re-subscribes.
