As a client of LDS Hope and Recovery I understand that online work is technical in nature and that there may be problems with Internet connectivity, which is the fault of neither the online coach, LDS Hope and Recovery nor me. Internet availability may be limited or disrupted by things such as server maintenance, upgrades, or other problems (such as software or hardware malfunction) or natural or man-made disasters (such as terrorist acts, Internet viruses, and so forth). These types of problems are beyond the control of LDS Hope and Recovery and me (client). If something like this were to occur, any scheduled appointments would be re-scheduled by your coach at no additional cost to you (client).
