Terms, Conditions, Privacy and Copyright



Your receiving an order confirmation message from us is merely to indicate that we have received an order from you, and does not indicate that a contract exists between us.
Once we have processed your payment, and sent you an invoice, then, and only then, does a contract exist between us.

We have included this term to protect us in the highly unlikely event of the inadvertent under or over-pricing of goods, or should we no longer be able to supply a particular product for some reason.

In the case of a change of price, we will contact you first to ensure that the new price is acceptable. If not, you will be refunded for the price difference.

You will also be sent e-mail notices if your credit card was declined, or if there were any other transaction processing problems for which we would need to contact you.


The Apprentice Corporation pays a lot of attention to keeping sufficient numbers of items as advertised on the website in stock, however on rare occasion a specific item may be out of stock due to various reasons. If you order an item that is currently out of stock, we will notify you by e-mail and await your reply with the options of having the item placed on back-order or to request a refund.

The Apprentice Corporation receives and ships orders nationally and internationally. Stocked items are usually mailed on the day following the placement of the order from the warehouse stocked with the relevant item/s in the closest proximity to your shipping address. Occasionally your ordered item may have to be mailed from another country – this may delay delivery time – due to extended mailing time as well as customs inspections in your country. Once mailed, you will receive an e-mail informing you that the item/s has/have been shipped together with a relevant tracking number. Kindly get in touch if you haven’t received your order within a reasonable period of 5-7 days (USA/Canada) and 14 – 21 days (outside of the USA/Canada).


Orders – for delivery to an address within the USA and Canada. The total price of a product as advertised on the FutureDoctorsAcademy.com is the “purchase price”, and is an all inclusive price – including the product/s, handling and mailing – unless specifically indicated to the contrary.

Orders – for delivery to an address outside of the USA and Canada. Kindly note that in most cases, shipping will leave the warehouse in the USA via USPS. Tracking is available up to the package moving out of USA borders. Clients should be able to track packages outside of the USA on their own countries’ postal services tracking facilities. Your package may be delayed at your customs office – where an additional customs duty may be added. This is payable on collection of the package. We have NO control over delays at your customs office or over any customs duties added to your package.

The Apprentice Corporation at its discretion may refuse to ship packages to certain countries  – in which case a full and prompt refund for any purchase/s will apply.
