Ownership and copyright
Everything produced by Max Trance (including this web site and these terms and conditions) is owned by Max Trance and may contain materials licensed from third parties. You may not make copies.
Our products and services
We offer a range of products and services.
When you purchase any of our products, you have rights under various New Zealand Acts of Parliament. You can usually check out the details on the relevant New Zealand Government web pages. These include the Consumer Guarantees Act and the Fair Trading Act. Our underlying guiding principle is to always treat you and the information we present to you in a fair manner such that you can make an informed decision.
We will replace, repair or refund any product that is found to have an unexpected physical defect at our discretion. This means, for example, that if you purchase a DVD and it does not play in a working DVD player of the correct zone, we will replace or refund it. Similarly, if you purchase a recording, and receive a corrupted file, we will send you a non-corrupt version, or will refund if this is not possible. We aim to provide accurate descriptions for all of our products and services.
Because of the nature of hypnosis, we make no claim that the material contained in any of our products will give you any kind of results. Similarly we cannot guarantee any results from the use of our services.
Being hypnotised is a skill like any other, and everyone exists at a different point on this spectrum. We don’t know you, so there is no way for us to judge where you are on this spectrum.
We do not offer refunds for our services.
Use of our products or services is entirely at your risk.
Hypnosis, machinery and driving
Hypnosis may cause altered states of mind. You agree to not use any of our products or services while engaged in activities where lack of attention could be dangerous. In particular, you will not listen to any of our products, or engage any of our services, while operating machinery or driving.
We cannot guarantee any results of any kind from your use of our products or services.
When you book a session, program or programme with us, we require non-refundable payment at time of booking. We may in certain circumstances allow you to reschedule at our discretion. Sometimes we may also need to reschedule at very short notice due to unforeseen circumstances, such as illness or complications with previous customers.
We hold one-on-one sessions both in-person and online. We will aim to be on-time for these sessions. However, the safety of our customers is a priority for us, which means that sometimes sessions may run over time. This means that we may be late on occasion. Where possible we will notify you when this happens.
If you are late for a one-on-one session, the session will end on time, and you will be billed for the session as if you had arrived on time. This includes situations where you do not show up at all. No refunds will be made.
We offer group sessions. When taking part in group sessions, you agree to be respectful of all others present. You understand that such sessions may involve exposure to personal information, and you agree that any and all material disclosed by anyone at those sessions is confidential and that you will not repeat it outside of the session. Furthermore, you agree that Max Trance and associated persons and entities will never be held liable for such disclosures.
You agree to not participate in group sessions while you are undergoing psychological treatment of any kind. If in doubt, please discuss with us first and we will help you to decide whether your participation may be appropriate.
Our training courses are generally recorded. This means that a requirement of attendance is that participants sign a release. All participants must be mature.
If you are undergoing psychological treatment of any kind, you agree to discuss with an appropriate medical professional before signing up for any of our in-person training courses and you agree to get agreement from that appropriate medical professional that the training is suitable and that you can attend safely.
Safety and negative reactions
Customer safety is a very high priority for us. While hypnosis itself is a very safe and natural process, it does involve digging around in your mind. If you have experienced negative psychological events in the past (including such things as trauma, depression, abuse, bullying and anything else negative), this can sometimes be triggered by hypnotic processes. In the event that this happens, we will take appropriate measures to guide you through it safely. However, we are not psychologists, and at times it may be necessary to refer you on to those more equipped to deal with such things.
This also means that your session may sometimes be delayed if we are dealing with a negative reaction from an earlier customer. Where possible we will endeavour to inform you of the delay as soon as possible. For privacy reasons, we will not be able to disclose the reasons for any delay.
Under no circumstances will we be held liable for any negative reactions you may have in relation to using our websites, products or services.
Medication and medical treatment
If you are undergoing any kind of medical treatment, you agree to proceed with hypnosis only with approval from an appropriate medical professional. You agree to disclose to us any conditions you are aware of that may have an impact on your experience of hypnosis.
Hypnosis requiring medical approval
Our services include hypnosis for pain control and management. You agree to seek written approval from an appropriate medical professional (usually your GP) prior to undergoing hypnosis for anything to do with pain. Pain is an important signal inside your body, and it is important to seek medical advice whenever you experience it. Hypnosis may effectively mask pain, so it is very important to find out what is causing the pain from an appropriate medical professional first.
In short: We will use hypnosis to mask your pain only if your doctor says it is ok first.
If you wear contact lenses, ensure that you remove them prior to any sessions. It is common for the eyes to roll up during hypnosis, and it would be bad if this happened while you were wearing contact lenses.
Limitation of liability
You agree to hold Max Trance and associated persons and entities, non-liable for anything and everything, to the maximum extent permissible under New Zealand law. You agree that your sole remedy is to discontinue use of our products and services.
To be completely clear: you don’t get to sue us or hold us liable for anything at all, ever.
Also, we really should not have to say this because it should be abundantly clear, but: you agree to never participate in any kind of class action against us in any manner.
You must be legally able to enter into a contract with us in order to use any of our websites, products or services. This means that you must be at least 18 years old. If you are younger than 18, your parent or guardian will need to provide written consent for such use before you can use any of our websites, products or services.
Any disputes will be processed at an appropriate venue in New Zealand, in a location selected by Max Trance. Our preference is to avoid dispute altogether.
These terms and conditions (along with any policies) may be updated from time to time. If you are on our notification list, we may send you a notification when these updates occur.
It is your responsibility to check that you agree with our current policies, terms and conditions before any instance of engaging our web sites, products or services.
We strive to keep our systems safe for use and virus free. However, we cannot guarantee that we will always succeed at this. You agree that we are not liable for undesirable effects that use of our websites, services or products may have on anything at all.
EU residents and GDPR
We have attempted to comply with European GDPR regulations. However, due to what appear to be multiple internal inconsistencies within those laws and regulations, we are unable to provide products or services to EU residents or others covered by GDPR. The exception to this the purchase of our products through a third party, since in that case we do not collect your data. If you are an EU resident or otherwise covered by GDPR, you may not otherwise use our products or services. Furthermore, you agree that should you use our products or services, any costs, fines or expenses of any kind imposed as a result of your use of our products or services will be solely your liability. To be absolutely clear, if you ignore this and use our products or services, you are agreeing to us, various EU organisations, and other parties, invoicing you for potentially very large amounts of money. You are also agreeing to pay any such invoices by their due dates without complaint or any kind of litigation.
We are unable to supply products or services to anyone who is covered by a current UN sanction. If you are resident in one of the sanctioned countries, or otherwise covered by such a sanction, you may not use our products or services. This applies even when the sanctions do not fully prohibit us from trading with you. You can find more details at the official website for New Zealand Foreign Affairs and Trade
