Payout policy with Retreat Guru Payment Services

If as a Commercial User (“Host”) you are processing credit card payments directly through Retreat Guru Payments Inc. (“RG Payments”), the following payout policy will apply. Initial and final payment percentages will be determined and agreed to in your software subscription agreement with Retreat Guru.

Commercial User's must pass our application process to use RG Payments processing services. We may ask you for information pertaining to your payment business or financial performance periodically. You agree to cooperate fully. Failure to comply may result in termination of any payment processing agreements. RG Payments reserves the right to terminate any payment processing agreement or temporarily hold payout funds for any reason.

  • Eligibility for payout
    • Upon completion of a Retail User’s initial registration, the initial payout payment for that registration will become eligible for payout. The remainder of the funds received as payment for the registration will be held in reserve by RG Payments and will become eligible for payout one day after the start date of the retreat, program or stay.
    • RG Payments reserves the right to request additional reserves. If there are insufficient reserves, the payout will be held for 60 days from the stay start date in the Retreat Guru Software before it can be released.
    • The payout amount cannot exceed the amount of funds held in reserve: a minimum of $3,000 USD needs to be held in your reserves before a payout can be facilitated. If there are no reserves, the payout will be held for 60 days from the stay start date and then will become available for payout.


  • Payout schedule
    • The Payout schedule is designed to maintain sufficient funds in your account in the event there are refunds or chargebacks.
    • RG Payments will transfer funds to the Commercial User’s via bank transfer following the agreed to payout schedule, within your software subscription agreement for Retreat Guru Software, on the 5th or 20th of each month or the following Canadian (British Columbia) business day.
    • If eligible funds total $3,000.00 USD or more, the transfer will occur automatically on the next scheduled payout date. No sender fee will be applied to these automatic payouts.
    • If eligible funds total less than $3,000.00 USD, you may request a special payout to be made on the next regularly scheduled payout date. Such requests must be submitted to at least 2 business days prior to the next regularly scheduled payout date.
    • If you need to make changes to your bank wire information, such changes must be acknowledged by Retreat Guru at least 2 business days before the next regularly scheduled payout date.
  • Bank fees
    • You may incur additional fees from your bank to accept a wire transfer, and additional fees from the payment processor for chargebacks and refunds.
Additional fees
  • RG Payments reserves the right to deduct any owed fees related to transactions, marketplace bookings, chargebacks, use of international credit cards, or other activities from your account prior to determining payout eligibility.
  • Standard fees from RG Payments are shown below. These fees are subject to change without notice.

Chargeback fee $35.00 USD
Sender fee (for payouts less than $3,000.00 USD) $30.00 USD
Early Payout fee (per early eligible payout) $50.00 USD
Returned Wire fee (minimum charge) $75.00 USD
Additional Wire fee (per each additional wire transfer) $20.00 USD


  • Chargeback Transactions
    • A “chargeback” is a request that a purchaser files directly with their card company or card issuing bank to contest the validity of a processed payment. 
    • Your center will remain responsible for paying all fees and penalties related to a chargeback. You will owe RG Payments and will immediately pay RG Payments for any chargeback, associated fees, fines or penalties assessed by the Bank, our processor, or the ACH. If you do not have sufficient funds available in your payout account to cover chargebacks or refunds, additional reserve funds will need to be sent immediately by wire transfer and/or by a charge to your credit card on file within the Retreat Guru Software in accordance with the Additional Fees section above. 
    • You understand that if you have pending chargebacks, RG Payments or the Bank may delay payouts to you.
    • RG Payments will notify you when a chargeback is received. You agree to assist RG Payments when requested and otherwise cooperate fully, at your expense, with any investigation of any of your transactions processed through RG Payments, payment processing service, until such investigation is completed. To that end, you permit us to share information about a chargeback with the Bank, the purchaser, the purchaser's financial institution, and your financial institution in order to investigate and/or mediate a chargeback. We will request necessary information from you to contest the chargeback. 
    • If the chargeback is contested successfully, we will release the reserved funds to your payout account. If a chargeback dispute is not resolved in your favour by the issuing bank or you choose not to contest the chargeback, we will recover the chargeback amount and any associated fees. 
    • You acknowledge that your failure to assist us in a timely manner when investigating a transaction, including providing necessary documentation promptly upon our request, may result in an irreversible chargeback. We reserve the right, upon notice to you, to charge a fee for mediating and/or investigating chargeback disputes. 
    • You acknowledge the outcome of chargeback verdicts are determined solely by our partner bank. You further acknowledge that RG Payments’ sole role in chargebacks is to facilitate evidence submissions and pass on chargeback fees.  
    • You hold RG Payments free of any liabilities from unfavourable chargeback outcomes.

Exhibit B: Data Management Policy

For Commercial Users

Last modified: August 03, 2023


This Data Management Policy and its Annexes (“DMP”) reflects the parties’ agreement with respect to the Processing of Commercial User Data by us on behalf of you in connection with the Services under the Terms of Service between you and us (also referred to in this DMP as the “Agreement”). 


Access, Use, and Legal Compulsion

Unless it receives Commercial User’s prior written consent, Retreat Guru: (i) will not access or use data in electronic form collected through the Services from Commercial User’s customers or other third parties, or collected or accessible directly from Commercial User, (collectively, “Project Data”) other than as necessary to facilitate the Services, which includes but is not limited to Retreat Guru marketing activities and data analytics; and (ii) will not give any third party access to Project Data. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Retreat Guru may disclose Project Data as required by applicable law or by proper legal or governmental authority. Retreat Guru will, where not otherwise prohibited by Law, give Commercial User prompt notice of any such legal or governmental demand, and reasonably cooperate with Commercial User in any effort to seek a protective order or otherwise to contest such required disclosure, at Commercial User’s expense.


Compliance with Law and Policy

Retreat Guru will comply with all applicable federal and provincial laws and regulations governing the handling of Project Data.



You agree that we may engage Sub-Processors to process Project Data on your behalf. We have currently appointed, as Sub-Processors, the third parties listed in Annex 1 to this DMP. 


Retention and Deletion

We will delete all Project Data Processed pursuant to this DMP, on termination or expiration of your Services in accordance with the procedures set out in our Agreement. This term shall apply except where we are required by applicable law to retain some or all of the Project Data, or where we have archived Project Data on backup systems, which data we will securely isolate and protect from any further Processing and delete when the backup lifecycle is complete. 



We will implement and maintain appropriate technical and organizational measures to protect Project Data as described under Annex 2 to this DMP ("Security Measures"). Notwithstanding any provision to the contrary, we may modify or update the Security Measures at our discretion provided that such modification or update does not result in a material degradation in the protection offered by the Security Measures.



Retreat Guru will notify Commercial User of any exposure or misappropriation of Project Data (any “Leak”) that comes to Retreat Guru’s attention. Retreat Guru will cooperate with Commercial User and with law enforcement authorities, when necessary, in investigating any such Leak.



Retreat Guru agrees that violation of the provisions of this DMP might cause Commercial User irreparable injury, for which monetary damages would not provide adequate compensation, and that in addition to any other remedy, Commercial User will be entitled to injunctive relief against such breach or threatened breach, without proving actual damage or posting a bond or other security.

Annex 2: Security Measures

This Annex forms part of the DMP.

We currently observe the Security Measures described in this Annex 2. All capitalized terms not otherwise defined herein shall have the meanings as set forth in the Master Terms.


Access Control

Preventing Unauthorized Product Access

Outsourced processing: We host our Services with outsourced cloud infrastructure providers. We rely on contractual agreements, privacy policies, and internal compliance programs in order to protect data processed or stored by these vendors.

Physical and environmental security: We host our product infrastructure with multi-tenant, outsourced infrastructure providers. The physical and environmental security controls are audited for SOC 2 Type II and ISO 27001 compliance, among other certifications.

Authentication: Commercial Users who interact with the products via the user interface must authenticate before accessing non-public customer data.

Authorization: Project Data is stored in multi-tenant storage systems accessible to Commercial Users via only application user interfaces and application programming interfaces. Commercial Users are not allowed direct access to the underlying application infrastructure. The authorization model in each of our products is designed to ensure that only the appropriately assigned individuals can access relevant features, views, and customization options. Authorization to data sets is performed by validating the Commercial User’s permissions against the attributes associated with each data set.

Application Programming Interface (API) access: Public product APIs may be accessed using an API key.

Preventing Unauthorized Product Use

We implement industry-standard access controls and detection capabilities for the internal networks that support its products.

Access controls: Network access control mechanisms are designed to prevent network traffic using unauthorized protocols from reaching the product infrastructure. The technical measures implemented differ between infrastructure providers and include Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) implementations, security group assignments, and traditional firewall rules.

Intrusion detection and prevention: We implement a Web Application Firewall (WAF) solution to protect hosted customer websites and other internet-accessible applications. WAF is designed to identify and prevent attacks against publicly available network services.

Static code analysis: Security reviews of code is performed by our developers prior to merging into our production codebase, checking for coding best practices and identifiable software flaws.

Penetration testing: In addition to internal practices and procedures, we maintain relationships with industry-recognized penetration testing service providers for regular penetration tests. The intent of the penetration tests is to identify and resolve foreseeable attack vectors and potential abuse scenarios.

Limitations of Privilege & Authorization Requirements

Product access: A subset of our employees have access to the products and to customer data via controlled interfaces. The intent of providing access to a subset of employees is to provide effective customer support, troubleshoot potential problems, and detect and respond to security incidents and implement data security. Employees are granted access by role, and employee roles are reviewed at least once every six months.

Transmission Control

In-transit: We make HTTPS encryption (also referred to as SSL or TLS) available on every one of its login interfaces and for free on every customer site hosted on the HubSpot products. Our HTTPS implementation uses industry-standard algorithms and certificates.

At-rest: We store user passwords following industry-standard practices for security.  

Response and tracking: We maintain a record of known security incidents that includes descriptions, dates and times of relevant activities, and incident disposition. Suspected and confirmed security incidents are investigated by security, operations, or support personnel; and appropriate resolution steps are identified and documented. For any confirmed incidents, we will take appropriate steps to minimize product and Customer damage or unauthorized disclosure. Notification to you will be in accordance with the terms of the Agreement.

Availability Control

Infrastructure availability: The infrastructure providers use commercially reasonable efforts to ensure a minimum of 99.95% uptime. The providers maintain a minimum of N+1 redundancy to power, network, and HVAC services.

Fault tolerance: Backup and replication strategies are designed to ensure redundancy during a significant processing failure. Customer data is backed up to external data stores.

Exhibit D: Marketplace for Hosts

For Commercial Users

Last modified: August 03, 2023



Commercial Users, including those with Freemium Account (Marketplace-only Hosts), can list unlimited retreats on the Marketplace ( for free. 

You may not list retreats, events, products or services that contravene applicable Law.

Your listings must adhere to the Supplementary Products Exclusion described in Section 9: Commercial User Payment Processing which prohibits the inclusion of plant medicine or other similar products in the cost of the event, retreat or stay.

Photographic images uploaded to the Marketplace must adhere to the following policy.

Full color - Use only clear full-color photos. Black and white, and greyscale images are not permitted.

Perspective and size - Use only images in landscape mode (not portrait mode). The recommend ratio is 720px wide by 400px tall.

Images or videos are your own - You may only post images or videos that do not violate another individuals or companies intellectual property rights.

No text or watermarks - Do not upload photos with superimposed text, watermarks, or other after-effects. You may, however, discreetly include your center’s official logo on the photo.

Single authentic image - Use only photos that depict a single scene or setting. Do not upload collages or other types of images composed of multiple photos.

No nudity - posting images or videos of nude people is not permitted.


We reserve the right at our sole discretion to remove a listing. 

We reserve the right at our sole discretion to modify a listing. Our intent for any such modification will be to increase visibility, appeal, and ranking. The scope would typically be limited to changing the title, correcting grammar and punctuation, editing the flow and arrangement of sections, images, and text, and similar actions.

We reserve the right, at our sole discretion with or without cause, to suspend or terminate your use of the Marketplace. We reserve the right to display your profile and reviews on the Marketplace after your use is suspended or terminated.


Qualifying registrations

Retail Users who access the Marketplace ( to actively search for authentic retreats are identified by Retreat Guru as Leads. 

If a Lead results in a qualifying registration for one of your retreats, a booking commission will be applied to the total price of that registration. 

For commission purposes, a qualified registration is one where the Retail User:

  • Clicks “secure your spot” or “book now” on your event page on the Marketplace, or
  • Sends you a message (“Contact”) on the Marketplace, or
  • Interacts in another way with your event, center, or teacher page on the Marketplace.


These bookings will be considered commission-qualified for the 6 months following the date of any of the above actions. For example, if a Retail User visits your center’s page on the Marketplace in January, and registers for a retreat at your center anytime between January and the following June, that registration will qualify for the commission. 

If after the initial commission-qualified registration, the Retail User makes another registration directly on Marketplace (clicks “secure your spot” or “book now” and completes the registration form), a commission will be charged on this additional commission-qualified registration. 

If after the initial commission-qualified registration, the Retail User makes another booking directly with your center (via your website, phone, or another direct contact method) no commission will apply to the booking.

All Commercial Users, except those with a Freemium Account (Marketplace-only Hosts), agree to pay a booking commission fee on the total price of the qualifying registration (including bookings that use the pricing method "suggested donation"). The booking fee does not apply to taxes, credit card fees, or donations. 

For Commercial Users with a Freemium Account (Marketplace-only Hosts), the commission is calculated on the total amount of the booking. The commission is paid by the Retail User. 

Commercial Users with a Freemium Account (Marketplace-only Hosts) must complete all bookings on the Marketplace. If bookings get completed off the Marketplace, you must report bookings that originate on the Marketplace under your Freemium Account but are then booked with you outside of the Marketplace (for example, through your website, WhatsApp, email, phone, or other channels). Non-compliance with this reporting policy may result in you, as a Freemium User, being banned from the Marketplace.

For Commercial Users with a Freemium Account (Marketplace-only Hosts), commissions are not applied to registrations that are canceled and fully refunded.



Commercial Users with a Freemium Account (Marketplace-only Hosts) are responsible for managing communication with the Retail User related to bookings completed on the Marketplace. Specifically, you must contact the Retail User to confirm their booking within two (2) business days, and respond to Retail Users who use the Contact link on the Marketplace within two (2) business days.


Payment of commissions

Third-party payment processing. If as a Commercial User you are processing credit card payments through our integration with a third-party payment service provider, we will invoice you monthly. Once issued, an invoice is locked - if a booking cancellation occurs after the invoice date, and a full refund has been processed, the associated commission will be credited to your account and applied to reduce the balance due on the next invoice. 

Retreat Guru Payment Services. If as a Commercial User you are processing credit card payments directly through Retreat Guru Payment Services, the total booking fees for the month will be deducted from your next payout.


Commission disputes

Contact us at if you wish to dispute a commission charge. We will research to verify the original lead source and, if needed, make adjustments. For example, if you received the lead from another source prior to the Retail User’s activity on the Marketplace, you may submit a copy (or screenshot) of the dated communications with the Retail User as verification.


Cancellation policies for Freemium Accounts

Freemium Users (Marketplace-only Hosts) may select one of the following cancellation policies to be in effect for all Marketplace registrations associated with their Account:

  • Flexible
    • 100% refund of monies paid if canceled 30+ days before the start date.
    • 50% refund of monies paid if canceled 15-29 days before the start date.
    • 0% refund of monies paid if canceled less than 15 days before the start date.
  • Moderate
    • 100% refund of monies paid if canceled 60+ days before the start date.
    • 50% refund of monies paid if canceled 30-59 days before the start date.
    • 0% refund of monies paid if canceled less than 30 days before the start date.


If you, as a Freemium User, cancel an event, you must reimburse the Retail User in full within 14 days of receiving the cancellation notification. You must also contact us to request that we refund the Retail User’s deposit - you must not instruct the Retail User to contact Retreat Guru directly to request a refund. Non-compliance with this cancellation policy may result in you, as a Freemium User, being banned from the Marketplace.
