      Dear Justin,

      Thanks for your interest! Now, to your questions:

      1. We are using GoToWebinar to run the workshops, but of course we will provide you with the details regarding the tools and everything, so no worries!

      2. I will be recording the video/audio, of course.

      3. The video/audio will be provided per request after the workshop, but I would need a solid promise that they won’t be uploaded somewhere public. I hope you understand!

      Thanks, Justin!
