  1. You must provide your legal name, a valid email address, and any other information requested in order to complete the signup process.
  2. Your login may only be used by one person. You may create separate logins for as many students as you’d like.

Payment, Refunds, Upgrading and Downgrading Terms

  1. A valid credit card is required for signing up for an account, including free trials.
  2. If you initially sign up for a free trial on a paying account, and you do not cancel that account within 30 days, you will begin paying for your subscription. If you choose not to pay once your trial has expired, your account will be suspended until payment is received.
  3. The Service is billed in advance on a monthly or yearly basis. There will be no refunds or credits for partial months of service, upgrade/downgrade refunds, or refunds for months unused with an open account. In order to treat everyone equally, no exceptions will be made. The only acceptable refunds will be duplicated payments and refunds approved by the billing department.
  4. All fees are exclusive of all taxes, levies, or duties imposed by taxing authorities, and you shall be responsible for payment of all such taxes, levies, or duties, excluding only United States (federal or state) taxes.
