I, Julie Read of Portfolio Oomph, reserve the right to vary these terms and conditions from time to time. It is the customers responsibility to regularly review these terms and conditions before each purchase to keep up to date with any changes to them. I will endeavour to post notices on the home page of the Website or email you if significant changes are made to these terms and conditions.



  1. No contract for the sale of any Products will subsist between you and I unless and until I accept your order by way of an email confirming the details of your order and your contact and delivery details (“Confirmation”). All orders are subject to acceptance by me, and I will confirm such acceptance by sending the Confirmation to you (whether or not you receive that Confirmation).
  2. You must check that the details of the Confirmation are correct as soon as possible and you should print out and keep a copy of it. Any errors in the Confirmation should be notified to me by contacting me at the details contained in the Confirmation.

Product prices are given in pounds sterling; no postage and packaging is charged for a digital download. Portfolio Oomph reserves the right to change its prices at any time, although products will be invoiced at the price in effect when the order was placed.

No VAT is payable on our online courses. If you live outside the UK and in the EU, VAT Moss is payable on eBooks and eCourses only.


With regard to mentoring/coaching, all my sessions are charged at rates on the specific page, payable ahead by BACS or credit/debit card; with the time allocation required to be agreed beforehand. If we are working by Skype my sessions are payable prior to the session. Portfolio Oomph will issue a receipt in respect to the job outlined in the contract.


Prices for our other programs may change from time to time, but changes will not affect any order you have already placed.

For International payments by Bank Transfer, Portfolio Oomph has the right to pass on any bank charges that I incur as a result of international transactions. By using my services the customer agrees to pay all charges associated with the international payment, including the fees incurred by the receiving bank.



You will receive an email from Payhip to the email address that you provided when you purchased any digital products. This email contains a link to your digital download.  You will have 24 hours in which to download your product, after which the link will cease to exist.


Product Satisfaction

Portfolio Oomph does not offer refunds on mentoring services or the PLAN CREATE SUCCEED course.


I have a 30 day money back guarantee on our eBooks and eCourses however please download the preview of each publication prior to purchasing to ensure you’re happy with the content.


If you purchase PLAN CREATE SUCCEED then you may, within 14 days of purchase have a full refund if you have fully implemented and worked methodically through the exercises in the Program in all material respects but you are not satisfied that the Program is as represented to you on our Site at the time of your purchase. In which case, please send an email to julie@portfolio-oomph.com and I will give you a full refund and make any refund due to you as soon as possible and in any event within 30 days.


I will refund you on the credit card or debit card used by you to pay.


I will supply the Program in accordance with the information provided to you on our Site at the time of your order in all material respects.


Although Portfolio Oomph offers you the best possible chance of creating a portfolio that will secure you a place at art college, I cannot guarantee that by using my learning materials that you will be accepted to art college. The website and its content and all mentoring/coaching services are a support to aid your application, not a passport to a place.


Confirmation and Refund Policy

Enrollment is limited and will only be guaranteed upon receipt of payment. If a session or class is cancelled by Portfolio Oomph due to insufficient enrollment, students will be notified and receive a full refund.


If a student withdraws from a mentoring session or class, Portfolio Oomph must be notified 48 hours prior to the start of the session where a full refund will be given. Unfortunately refunds cannot be issued for cancellations made less than 48 hours prior to the session.


Class Cancellation

Portfolio Oomph reserves the right to alter or cancel workshops where necessary. Should I cancel any workshop due to unforeseen circumstances, all fees will be refunded to the participants.
