A. Service Fees

The Services and the associated fees under these Additional Terms are in addition to any fees that may be charged under your Account with ABCmouse.com. For existing subscribers of these Services, we may change your fee at any time in our sole discretion at the end of your subscription period, provided that we first notify you by email. All fees plus applicable sales tax are payable in accordance with payment terms in effect at the time the fee or the charge becomes payable. We may offer promotional trial subscriptions to access the Services for free or at special discounted prices. If you sign up for a trial subscription, your rights to use the Services are limited by the terms of such trial and will terminate or renew according to the terms of your trial arrangement and/or any applicable additional terms. Please note that we do not provide price protection or refunds for existing subscribers in the event of a price drop or promotional offering for other subscribers. Failure to pay any fees may result in your inability to access or use the Services.

 

B. Authorization to Charge for Services

You must use eiher a credit card or other payment mechanism accepted by us (Pay Mechanism) to activate and maintain the Services. You authorize us to charge you through the Pay Mechanism that you use when registering for the Services and selecting an online tutoring plan (Plan). Each Plan will be comprised of a number of tutoring sessions (Sessions) and/or additional Services. You will also be responsible for charges (include applicable taxes) for any products or services that you order that are offered for sale through the Services. If we do not receive payment from the Pay Mechanism you use, you agree to pay all amounts due hereunder upon our demand and will be solely responsible for any dispute with your payment provider. Should the Pay Mechanism provided initially be declined for insufficient funds or any other reason, we reserve the right to attempt to recharge the Pay Mechanism in full or in lesser installments of the initially incurred charge for the duration of the Services subscription you selected and for up to an additional 90 days. You will not be charged more than the amount for which you purchased your Services subscription. You will be solely responsible for all overdraft fees and/or penalties that may be assessed by your payment provider. We use a third-party service provider to process payments on our behalf. You acknowledge and agree that in the event the third-party payment processor experiences a data breach that affects your information through no fault of the Company, the Company will in no way be responsible or liable to you for any such breach.

 

C. Billing and Renewal

We will charge your Pay Mechanism each year, month, or other applicable period (depending on the term that you selected) for the then-current applicable price for such Plan.

 

D. Services Cancellation

To cancel your subscription and avoid future billing, you may cancel your Plan prior to its renewal date through the My Account section of TutorIQ or by contacting our Customer Support team. If you do so, please know that we endeavor to have customer requests handled within 24 hours; however, we cannot guarantee that your cancellation will be registered within that time period. For all Plans, you will continue to be able to schedule and have your Child User attend Sessions for the period of time that has already been prepaid. After you cancel your Plan, we will not charge you any subscription fees after the expiration of your then-current subscription. Please note we do not provide full or partial refunds for prepaid sums. In any event, your Child User can continue to use the Services throughout the remainder of the paid subscription period.
