HELP AND FAQ

  • 1. Are Private Sessions available?

    Yes. Periodically, Terri opens a few time slots for private sessions by telephone appointment. The time slots and instructions on how to make a reservation are announced to our e-list through the DK Newsletter. We do not respond to individual requests made outside of this procedure.

    Private Session appointments are prepaid at the time of scheduling. There are no refunds, no exchanges, and no cancellations.

    In the rare event that rescheduling is needed, there is a fee of $10 with 24 hour minimum advance notice, and if other time slots are still available within 90 days from the date on which you are attempting to reschedule.

    Missed appointments are no refunds and no exchanges, because we have spent the administrative time and the channel has reserved time for you.

  • 2. Is it safe to use my Credit Card?

    Yes. Terri Newlon, Inc., uses the new Secure Socket Layer (SSL), 128-bit secure website, which encrypts all of your personal information, including your credit card number, so that it cannot be read as information travels over the Internet.

    To confirm this on any web site, look for two things. When you are in the shopping cart, you should see a padlock in the bottom of your browser. You should also see an "s" in the URL after http (example: https://www.TerriNewlon.com).

    We use one of the largest and most secure shopping carts, 1ShoppingCart.com, along with one of the best and most secure e-commerce gateways, Authorize.net. To further protect our clientele, we also use a merchant account with strict compliance requirements, Costco NOVA.

    IMPORTANT CONSUMER INFORMATION:

    Under the Fair Credit Billing Act, your bank can NOT hold you liable for more than $50.00 of fraudulent CREDIT card charges. In the event of unauthorized use of your credit card, you must notify your credit card provider in accordance with its reporting rules and procedures.

    To the best of our knowledge, this rule does not apply to debit cards.

  • 3. What is your declined Credit Card policy?

    We are sorry that there is a difficulty in processing the funds.  We sincerely want your experience with us to be joyous and easy. You are responsible for contacting your bank or card company to assess why the decline appeared:

    1.  AVS mismatch - does your bank's internal records match where your statement is mailed?  Did you accidentally use a home address when the statements are mailed to your office or post office box?

    2.  Did your card recently get updated?  Has the code on the back of card changed?  And also the expiration date?

    Our e-commerce system involves 1ShoppingCart, Authorize.net gateway, and Costco Nova now Elavon Merchant Account.  We chose this ultra-secure online system for the safety of our clients, and we assure you that there is no way for us to access funds that your bank or card company are holding within their system.

    If your credit card company is holding funds from your account, we cannot fix the situation for you. Click here for our official statement that you can give your credit card company to aid in the release of your funds. Please ask your bank or card company to stop holding the funds and release them for your use.  This is a similar situation as when you rent a car and they 'hold' a deposit until you bring back the car in good shape, or until 15 days or so has expired.

    We provide you with an email copy of the declined transaction, and you must contact your bank or card company to resolve the issue.  We are not responsible for making phone calls on your behalf.  If this statement is not satisfactory to your bank or card representative, and they would like to call our office during business hours Pacific Time, contact Janet Smith at 425-844-2573.  Leave a voice mail message if she is in a meeting.
