Changes and Modifications
3-CD/Flash Drive Orders
Rossdale provides 3-CD sets and/or flash drives of its seminars as a premium service to its customers. 3-CD sets and/or flash drives are generally processed within 4-10 weeks following a live broadcast or from the date of order, whichever is later; however, the 3-CD sets and/or flash drives may be mailed earlier than the 4-10 week period, as soon as they are available. The 3-CD sets and/or flash drives are mailed through the U.S. Postal Service and may take 4 to 7 business days to be delivered once processed. 3-CD sets and/or flash drives may not be returned or exchanged for any reason without Rossdale first issuing a return authorization, in writing, to the customer. Requests for return authorization may only be made via email and must be sent exclusively to Returns@RossdaleCLE.com. Refunds and exchanges will not be given for any returned CD, flash drive, or CD's without a return authorization first having been issued by Rossdale, in writing. No exceptions will be made to this rule. All refunds are governed pursuant to Rossdale's refund policy. Rossdale currently includes shipping and handling as part of the overall fee for the 3-CD set and/or flash drive; this is subject to change without prior notification. Shipping & handling is only provided for addresses within the United States and its territories. Customers are responsible to pay the full cost of shipping & handling to addresses outside of the United States & its territories. Rossdale may also access a handling fee to addresses outside of the United States & its territories. In the event that a customer provides to Rossdale or enters on the site an incorrect mailing address, Rossdale reserves the right to charge the customer a shipping and handling fee to cover the entire cost of mailing the 3-CD set and/or flash drive again to the customer as well as the full cost of a new 3-CD set and/or flash drive. Rossdale also reserves the right to charge the full price of a 3-CD set and/or flash drive and the cost to have the 3-CD set and/or flash drive delivered by registered mail or with tracking if a customer claims not to have received a 3-CD set and/or flash drive. Customers must inform Rossdale in writing, to Support@RossdaleCLE.com, if they hve not received any or all of the 3-CD set and/or flash drive within 12 weeks of the date of the seminar date or registration, whichever comes last, if the customers wishes to notify Rossdale of a lost 3-CD set and/or flash drive. Any customer who do not notify Rossdale in writing within 12 weeks of the seminar date or registration whichever comes last, that a 3-CD set and/or flash drive has not been received is contractually deemed to have received the 3-CD set and/or flash-drive.
CLE/MCLE Accreditation & Credit Processing
Rossdale provides complimentary continuing legal education ("CLE") and minimum continuing legal education ("MCLE") credit processing for a number of the state bar associations and jurisdictions that approve Rossdale courses for CLE/MCLE credit. It is the responsibility of each attendee to ensure that his/her full and proper credit has been posted to his/her state bar and/or jurisdiction. Rossdale may not be held responsible if this credit is not fully or accurately posted to an individual attendee's CLE history with her or her state bar and/or bar association. In addition, Rossdale's undertaking to post CLE/MCLE credit is not part of the registration fee for the seminar. Rossdale's posting of CLE/MCLE credit is a gratuitous undertaking, whose failure in no way breaches Rossdale's contract with a customer's purchase or CLE registration. Rossdale accesses a $50.00 fee per state, per attendee if Rossdale is required to complete, execute, or in any other way, process CLE and/or MCLE credit for a state that is not posted on this Website. Rossdale seeks CLE and/or MCLE credit for certain jurisdictions. If a jurisdiction is not listed under the program description, Rossdale disclaims any guarantee, warranty or liability if the jurisdiction later determines not to provide full or partial CLE and/or MCLE credit for the particular seminar. Rossdale does not warrant that a certain jurisdiction will approve a course for partial or full credit. In the event that a course is not approved for CLE credit, Rossdale will not be held liable to return, cancel, or refund part or full registration fees. Rossdale does not make any oral representations regarding applications for CLE/MCLE credit to jurisdiction not listed on this Website. Any information that differs from the information posted at this Website or otherwise not listed on this website must be stated, in writing, by Rossdale, prior to the customer's purchase of the seminar in question in order to prove validity. Where a sponsor fee is required for a course to be approved for CLE and/or MCLE credit, Rossdale makes its best efforts to pay that fee. Some jurisdictions do not require a sponsor fee of out-of state sponsors. Rossdale disclaims any liability, warranty, or guarantee to pay any optional fee related to CLE and/or MCLE credit. Upon request, Rossdale may access a $50.00 fee per state, per attendee to complete, execute, or in any other way, process credit CLE and/or MCLE credit for a jurisdiction that imposes an optional out-of state sponsor fee.
Early Bird Pricing Program
Rossdale maintains a customer oriented pricing program known as the “Early Bird Discount.” When a live telephonic seminar is first introduced, the price is provided at an “Early Bird Discount” for several weeks. There is generally an initial notification sent out to advise of the initial offering of the “Early Bird Discount” and another “last chance” e-mail to advise several days prior to a price change; although in some cases, there may be more than one or no "last chance" reminder notifications. The change in price is set at the exclusive discretion of Rossdale and is based on the number of attendees who have signed up for a given program and the number of days or weeks that remain until the live seminar will be held. After a certain quantitative and/or temporal threshold has passed, the price increases to its regular price. Rossdale reserves the right to charge the full $179.00 premium price for registrations made on the day of a live seminar to offset the high costs involved in last minute registrations. After a program is aired live, it then becomes available as a recorded program in the following forms: 24/7 on-demand, podcast, and/or CD-format. Based on the popularity of a given program, demand from customers, and the exclusive discretion of Rossdale, an “Early Bird Discount” may be extended on a recorded 24/7 on-demand program, podcast, and CD-format seminar. This “Early Bird Discount” on the recorded 24/7 on-demand program, podcast, and CD-format seminar may last in duration from as short as one day to as long as a month or more. The price changes based on quantitative and/or temporal thresholds reached, as well as the exclusive discretion of Rossdale.
Question & Answer Session and Consent for Live Questions To Be Reproduced for Subsequent Use
All attendees who choose to ask live questions during a live teleconference agree to have their voice and/or likeness heard and reproduced when and if the live teleconference is converted to an on-demand downloadable seminar, podcast, rebroadcast, CD-format, or any other reproduction of the original broadcast. In addition, attendees agree that their question may be edited, in whole or in part, at the sole discretion of Rossdale. Rossdale has sole discretion to determine whether questions presented by attendees are appropriate to be asked during the live question and answer session. Rossdale makes no warranties of any kind that every question aksed by every attendee will be posed to the seminar faculty during the live, telephonic seminar. Rossdale make no warranties of any kind that there will be adequate time for every question of every attendee to be asked of the seminar faculty members during the live, telephonic seminar. Rossdale may, at its sole discretion, limit the number and/or types of questions that may be asked during the live, telephonic seminars. Rossdale will make the contact information of seminar faculty available upon request to registered attendees so participants can communicate directly with Rossdale seminar faculty. Rossdale is not responsible to ensure that the seminar faculty reply, in part or whole to any or all questions posed by attendees during the live, telephonic seminar or in the event that participants opt to communicate directly with seminar faculty following the live, telephonic seminar.

Participants who press *1 may pose their question to an operator, who will in turn pose the question during the Question and Answer session. It is recommended that participants submit their questions via email to questions@RossdaleCLE.com.

Course & Reference Materials
If indicated on the seminar page, Rossdale provides course and reference materials to accompany many of our seminars. Some lecturers prefer to utilize and supply exhaustive course & reference materials to accompany their discussion. Other lecturers prefer not to utilize materials. Therefore, there may be some seminars for which there are no course materials to accompany each individual lecturer's discussion. It is accepted and understood that participants will not rely on or use course materials for legal advice. It is also understood that attendees understand that some courses may have limited course & reference materials. At no time may the absence, lack of, or limited amount of course & reference material provide for the cancellation of a seminar. All course and reference materials are provided by means of a downloadable format, generally in an Adobe PDF version. Rossdale never mails out course and reference materials in a paper format. As an environmentally friendly company, Rossdale has replaced wasting paper and sending out written materials with providing attendees with an easy, convenient downloadable version of the materials. Registered attendees have online access to course materials that are posted approximately 48 hours prior to a live seminar. This not only enables Rossdale to maintain its commitment to promoting environmentally friendly business practices, but also enables attendees to have immediate and permanent access to course and reference materials. Attendees may quickly and easily access and find specific topics within the material by using "Control Find" (press "Ctrl" key and the letter "F" key at the same time). Attendees who wish to receive the materials in the mail may register for the 3-CD recording set and/or flash drive on the seminar page; the 3-CD recording and material set includes 2 CD's of the recording and a third CD with a digital copy of the course and reference materials for the seminar. The flash drive includes the recording and a third CD with a digital copy of the course and reference materials for the seminar.
