- Solo parents
If you believe you are receiving the incorrect updates, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org so we can correctly allocate you to the correct list.
You must pay to us the fees in respect of our website services in advance, in cleared funds, in accordance with any instructions on our website. We may vary fees from time to time by posting new fees on our website, but this will not affect fees for services that have been previously paid.
If you dispute any payment made to us, you must contact us immediately and provide full details of your claim. If you make an unjustified credit card, debit card or other charge-back then you will be liable to pay us, within 7 days following the date of our written request:
- an amount equal to the amount of the charge-back;
- all third party expenses incurred by us in relation to the charge-back (including charges made by our or your bank or payment processor or card issuer);
- an administration fee of GBP 25.00 including VAT; and
- all our reasonable costs, losses and expenses incurred in recovering the amounts referred to in this Section 9.5 (including without limitation legal fees and debt collection fees),
and for the avoidance of doubt, if you fail to recognise or fail to remember the source of an entry on your card statement or other financial statement, and make a charge-back as a result, this will constitute an unjustified charge-back for the purposes of this Section.
If you owe us any amount under or relating to these terms and conditions, we may suspend or withdraw the provision of services to you.
Thriving Solo Terms and Conditions of Membership Subscription:
To become a subscriber to our website services, you must pay the applicable subscription fees during the account registration procedure.
Membership can be bought on a monthly plan. Founder members may have an annual plan that has rolled over from their founder membership. Monthly membership is valid for one month from date of purchase, and operates on a rolling monthly basis. Annual membership for founder members is valid for one year from date of purchase also operating on a rolling annual basis.
For so long as your account and subscription remain active in accordance with these terms and conditions, you will benefit from the features specified on our website in relation to your subscription type.
We may from time to time vary the benefits associated with a subscription by giving you written notice of the variation, providing that you shall have the right to cancel your subscription, and we will refund to you any amounts paid to us in respect of any period of subscription after the date of such cancellation.
At the end of any period of subscription for which you have paid, and subject to the other provisions of these terms and conditions, your subscription will be automatically renewed and you must pay to us the applicable subscription fees, unless you cancel the subscription by emailing email@example.com at least a week before your renewal date.
If you are a founder member on an annual membership, you will be sent a reminder that your subscription will be automatically renewed.
No member is entitled to any refund of membership fee on ceasing to be a member whether on a monthly or an annual membership. Membership of Thriving Solo is also not transferable.
If you learn of any unlawful material or activity on our website, or any material or activity that breaches these terms and conditions, please let us know by email.
We accept all major credit and debit cards.
Cancellation and suspension of account
- edit your account details;
- temporarily suspend your account; and/or

Cancelling your membership:
If you are on a monthly membership, you can cancel your membership at least 7 days before your next month membership fee is due and you will stop having access to the Thriving Solo Membership site as well as Mighty Networks and the members-only podcast at the end of the month you have paid until.
If you want to cancel your account, you need to email firstname.lastname@example.org.
As long as we are notified with a minimum of one week prior to your next monthly payment due date, no further monthly payments will be taken. You will not be entitled to any refund if you cancel your account in accordance with this Section.
If you are a founder member on an annual membership you can email email@example.com to cancel at least 7 days before your annual subscription is due for automatic renewal. You will continue to be a member until your years subscription has ended at which point it will then be cancelled if you have emailed to say you don’t wish to renew.
Deleting the Mighty Networks app, leaving the Mighty Networks community or unfollowing the podcast doesn’t cancel your membership. Please make sure to email firstname.lastname@example.org to cancel.
The Consumer Contracts Regulations state that your right to cancel an order starts the moment you place your order. In the case of Thriving Solo this will be from the moment you pay for the membership. A member then has seven days in which to decide to cancel and confirmation of this must be received by The Stork and I by email or letter.
All Thriving Solo Events can be accessed via the events page on the website and Mighty Networks community using the Zoom links provided. Most events will be recorded enabling on demand access. Some events will not be recorded at the request of the guest and this will be stated on the event details.
Only fully paid up members of Thriving Solo are entitled to attend Thriving Solo events live, unless stated otherwise. The recordings will be made available for purchase to non members after the event.
