Description of Service
CourseBridge’s website offers an education program filled with online learning activities, lessons, resources and assessments that parents can use as part of their homeschool curriculum, as an afterschool alternative to tutoring or as summer study for their children in preschool through high school (the “Service”). The Service includes curriculum that correlates to state standards, but CourseBridge is not a school or a course. Parents who use the Service as part of their homeschool curriculum act as the teacher of record, and must follow the requirements in their home state to determine if there are any gaps you need to fill in. The Service is provided “as-is” with no fitness implied for any use and no guarantee of reliability or durability. As a software-based service with ongoing updates based on user feedback, there may be problems of implementation or performance, commonly known as “bugs”. CourseBridge strives to test, update, maintain, and optimize its system regularly so that the Service is delivered to users safely and effectively, but CourseBridge makes no guarantees as to the quality, reliability or fitness for any particular purpose of its Service.
Membership Payment & Activation. To access the Service, you must create an account with CourseBridge and activate a Membership. A Membership is activated once CourseBridge receives payment of the Membership Fee, which is set at registration and is based on the number of courses that the parent purchases. CourseBridge accepts payments online using Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express. For credit card payments, the date of payment will be the Activation Date.
You hereby agree to pay all charges to your account, including applicable taxes, in accordance with billing terms in effect at the time the fee or charge becomes payable. If you are a tax-exempt organization and we do not already have a current Certificate of Tax Exemption on file, please submit a copy to [email protected]. We will review your Certificate of Tax Exemption and contact you for your order.
Membership Term & Renewal. A typical Membership begins on the Activation Date and extends for six (6) months (the “Term”). For users paying for a Membership by credit card, the Membership automatically terminates at the end of the Term, unless the user renews the Membership online on or before the last day of the Term. If payment is not received by CourseBridge for any reason, including charge back, CourseBridge reserves the right to suspend or terminate a user’s Membership. In addition, all users understand that once a Membership is terminated all information relating to the user (including student data and assignments) may be terminated or deleted.
Cancellations. Users may cancel their membership within the first two (2) days using their Parent Dashboard or by sending a cancel request to [email protected]. All cancel email requests must be sent from the email address that is listed on the account. All cancellations are processed immediately followed by an email confirmation that gets sent within 24 business hours. Whenever a Membership is canceled pursuant to this Section, CourseBridge will remove user access on or immediately after the effective date of the cancellation. CourseBridge reserves the right to cancel a user’s Membership if the user fails to make a payment. For purposes of this section, a user is deemed to have paid CourseBridge when the user’s credit card payment has been received by CourseBridge’ merchant account or bank account. CourseBridge also reserves the right to cancel a Membership for any reason, including, without limitation for lack of use or if CourseBridge believes you have violated the letter or spirit of the Terms of Service. CourseBridge shall not be liable to the user or any third-party for the cancellation of your Membership, deletion of your account, or access to the CourseBridge website.
100% Satisfaction Guarantee. New Users who sign up for a Membership, have a 2-day period during which there is an unconditional money-back guarantee. If you cancel your Membership during this time, you will receive a full refund. For purposes of this section and the Terms of Service, a “New User” is someone who has never had a Membership with CourseBridge and is activating a Membership using a credit card for the first time.
Refunds. All payments for Memberships to CourseBridge are non-refundable, unless you are a New User (defined above) who requests a refund within the 2-day money back guarantee period.
Billing Security. CourseBridge uses Secure Sockets Layer technology that sends credit card data in encrypted code. CourseBridge does not store your credit card number.
Special Offers & Price Changes. CourseBridge may run special offers periodically. These special offers are subject to change at any time, and may have certain restrictions, including, but not limited to, restricting users to the use of one special offer. Pricing is subject to change with notice by CourseBridge. Any changes made by CourseBridge become effective at the start of the next billing term.
Passwords. Your password gives you access to the Membership service. Please take appropriate measures to keep your password confidential and do not share it with third parties or with your children. You will be responsible for all activities that occur under your password regardless of whether you are the person who took such actions. If your password gets disclosed, please advise CourseBridge immediately and we will issue a new password and eliminate the previous one.
Your Obligations & Representations. When you sign up for any of Time4Learning’s family of educational products and activate your Membership, you agree to (a) provide true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself on the registration form (such information being the “Registration Data”) and (b) maintain and promptly update the Registration Data to keep it true, accurate, current and complete. If you provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, or CourseBridge has reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, CourseBridge has the right to suspend or terminate your account and/or refuse any and all current or future use of its Service.
