The Licenser is the inventor, founder and administrator of an exclusive network association by the name of “ApprovedRichClub”.

In the interest of providing the enormous amount of self-validation to all persons who can afford the membership in the ApprovedRichClub and making it widely known and approachable, the Licenser encourages all such individuals that understand and agree with the ApprovedRichClub philosophy to join the community and be properly licensed to use the ApprovedRichClub name in connection with their active Confirmed Membership status.

d) In the event of any chargeback following the credit card payment of the Subscription Fee, the Licensee is obliged to bear those costs entirely, unless and insofar the chargeback is not the result of any legal circumstance that voids the contractual obligation to pay the Subscription Fee, e.g. a legally valid revocation.
