I believe a man does what he can,
until his destiny is revealed.
Terms & Conditions
Welcome to www.francoisbaudot.com (the “Website“). The Website is owned and operated by Francois Baudot Coaching Co. Ltd (“FBC“, “We” or “Us“).
Description of Coaching: Coaching is a partnership (defined as an alliance, not a legal business partnership) between Us and The Client (“You”) in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires you to maximize your personal and professional potential. It is designed to facilitate the creation/development of personal, professional or business goals and to develop and carry out a strategy/plan for the achievement of those goals.
1. COACH-CLIENT RELATIONSHIP
A. We agree to maintain the ethics and standards of behavior established by FBC. It is recommended that you review our Code of Ethics and applicable standards of behavior, a copy of which is available on this Website.
B. You are solely responsible for creating and implementing your own physical, mental and emotional well-being, decisions, choices, actions and results arising out of or resulting from the coaching relationship and your coaching calls and interactions with us. As such, you agree that we shall not be liable or responsible for any actions or inaction, or for any direct or indirect result of any services provided by us. You understand that coaching is not therapy and neither does it substitute for therapy (if required), nor does it prevent, cure, or treat any mental disorder or medical disease.
C. You acknowledge that coaching is a comprehensive process that may involve different areas of your life, including work, finances, health, relationships, education and recreation. You agree that deciding on how to handle these issues, to incorporate coaching principles into those areas and implement choices are your exclusive responsibility.
D. You acknowledge that coaching does not involve the diagnosis or treatment of mental disorders and that coaching is not to be used as a substitute for counseling, psychotherapy, psychoanalysis, mental health care, substance abuse treatment, or other professional advice by legal, medical or other qualified professionals and that it is your exclusive responsibility to seek such independent professional guidance as needed. If you are currently under the care of a mental health professional, it is recommended that you promptly inform the mental health care provider of the nature and extent of the coaching relationship agreed upon by you and us.
E. You understand that in order to enhance the coaching relationship, you agree to communicate honestly, to be open to feedback and assistance and to create the time and energy to participate fully in the program.
2. PRIVACY AND YOUR ACCOUNT
We may offer services designed for children. However, such packages are sold to adults who can purchase them with a credit card or any other permitted payment method. If you are under 18, you may use the Website only with the involvement of a parent or guardian. We reserve the right to refuse service, terminate accounts, remove or edit contents, or cancel orders in our sole discretion.
4. USE AND PROTECTION OF PASSWORD AND USERNAME
You have the responsibility of creating your account password and username so you can access and use certain sections of the Website. Each user who uses your password and ID shall be deemed to be authorized by you to access and use the Website, and we shall have no obligation to investigate the authorization or source of any such access or use. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT YOU WILL BE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL ACCESS TO AND USE OF THE WEBSITE BY ANYONE USING YOUR PASSWORD AND ID WHETHER OR NOT SUCH ACCESS TO AND USE OF THE WEBSITE IS ACTUALLY AUTHORIZED BY YOU, INCLUDING ALL COMMUNICATIONS AND TRANSMISSIONS AND ALL OBLIGATIONS (INCLUDING FINANCIAL OBLIGATIONS FOR PURCHASES THROUGH THE WEBSITE) THAT MAY RESULT FROM SUCH ACCESS OR USE.
You are solely responsible for protecting the security and confidentiality of your password and ID. You will immediately notify us of any unauthorized use of your password or ID, or any other breach or threatened breach of the Website’s security of which you are aware. You will be responsible for any activity conducted under your password or ID.
The coaching relationship, as well as all information (documented or verbal) that you share with us as part of this relationship, is bound by the principles of confidentiality set forth in FBC Code of Ethics and in line with the 2017 Data Protection Act. However, please be aware that the Coach-Client relationship is not considered a legally confidential relationship (unlike the medical and legal professions) and thus communications are not subject to the protection of any legally recognized privilege. We shall not disclose any information pertaining to You without your written consent. We shall not disclose your name as a reference without your consent. Confidential Information does not include information that: (a) was in our possession prior to it being provided by You; (b) is generally known to the public or in your industry; (c) is obtained by Us from a third party, without breach of any obligation to You; (d) is independently developed by Us without use of or reference to your confidential information; or (e) is required by court order to be disclosed; (f) is disclosed to us and, as a result of such disclosure, we reasonably believe there is an imminent or likely risk of danger or harm to you or others; and (g) involves illegal activity. You acknowledge your continuing obligation to raise any confidentiality questions or concerns with us in a timely manner.
6. SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS
The coaching sessions require Internet access, cloud-based video conferencing services, audio and video management software or other software allowing video communication (the “Software“), and, for certain downloadable content, a compatible player device (the “Device“).

Internet access, use of the Software, or use of a Device may result in fees in addition to any fees incurred on the Website.

You acknowledge and agree that it is your sole responsibility to comply with the system requirements of your Software and Device, as in effect from time to time, and to maintain, update, and upgrade your Software and Devices, including the payment of all Internet access, Software, and Device fees without recourse to FBC.
