Affiliate Offerings In some cases Elative Solutions OÜ or its owners may have an affiliate relationship with a third party site or service provider mentioned on the Sites, and may be compensated (e.g. receive a valuable benefit, or even a commission) if you visit and/or purchase a product or service from the affiliated site. We will generally endeavor to identify any such relationships so that you understand that even though we endorse a particular product or service, we also may be compensated in some way if you choose to do business with the recommended business or site. However, you should assume that we do have such a relationship – and that we will be compensated if you purchase a product or service. Where we have an affiliate relationship with such third party sites, our receipt of compensation does not increase your cost to purchase the product or service, and if you purchase through an affiliate link, you will generally receive valuable bonuses that you will not otherwise be entitled to receive. Moreover, while many people would like us to endorse or recommend their products, we will never endorse or recommend any product or service we do not believe in, that is not of good quality, or which we do not think can provide benefits for you, regardless of potential compensation. However, if the possibility of us receiving compensation is not agreeable to you, please do not buy through any link on the Sites. Our products and services, including those that are available through the Sites may also be offered by or through third party affiliates who are compensated by us, for example if you purchase a product or service from us. While we are responsible for claims we have made regarding our products or services, we cannot be held responsible for any claims made by third parties. Moreover, those third parties may promise the inclusion of various bonuses or additional products or services.
If those bonuses, products, or services are a part of our offer, we are responsible for delivering or providing them and will do so. If the third party affiliate has offered additional bonuses, products, or services that are not a part of our offer, you should contact them regarding delivery, or support issues for those bonuses, products, or services.
We endeavor to be selective in the people or companies we allow to promote our products or services. If you believe that you have been promised bonuses, products, or services from a third party claiming to be our affiliate who does not follow through or deliver the promised bonuses, products, or services, and if you have been unsuccessful in resolving the issue, we would appreciate hearing about it. Problems can arise, and while we cannot take responsibility for such problems, if we see a pattern of problems with an affiliate we will determine if we should allow them to promote our products or services in the future.
As the majority of our products are available online you will be sent access/login details within 24 hours from receipt of your paid order.
Physical product purchases will be delivered generally between 7am and 6pm Monday to Friday (excluding bank holidays) via a third party delivery service such as Royal Mail, UPS or FedEX. Deliveries will be made within 1 to 10 working days from receipt of your paid order.
Online coaching and other services will be provided as agreed with you at the time of order or by proposal.
You recognise that in our work together, you may divulge goals, future plans, business affairs, job information, personal and other such private information. We will not, at any time, either directly or indirectly, voluntarily use any such information for our own benefit or disclose this information to a third party. We will not voluntarily disclose that you are in a coaching relationship without your permission.

This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.
We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it may take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you.
If you are not happy with any aspect of how we collect and use your data, you have the right to complain to the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO), the EU supervisory authority for data protection issues (https://edps.europa.eu/edps-homepage_en). We should be grateful if you would contact us first if you do have a complaint so that we can try to resolve it for you.
