Trial Period, Subscribing, Billing and Prices

Trial Period & Subscribing

We reserve the right to propose a trial subscription period (Trial Period) to eligible new Users of our Site and/or Mobile Software from time to time, at our sole discretion and as described on our Site. The duration of any free Trial or promotional offer may vary and will be displayed on our Site for new Users and/or communicated directly to existing Subscribers via the Site or email communications.

To receive a free Trial or promotional offer you will need (if you have not already done so) to register as a Subscriber. We may collect credit/debit card details at this time. If you become a paying Subscriber during/after your Trial Period depending upon the promotional offer at the time, your credit/debit card will be charged at the beginning of your first payment cycle. It is your responsibility to know when your Trial Period ends, and to cancel your free Trial or promotional offer if you do not wish to become a paying or recurring billing Subscriber of our Service.

The games and exercises (collectively the “Program”) on the Site proposed by the Trial are offered in open access during the Trial Period. You understand that the Trial may not include certain information, functionality or services, as specified from time to time.

If you receive an offer for a free Trial or promotional offer to our Site and/or our Mobile Software, it will begin on the date on which we accept your registration (Trial Subscription Date).

Each User can subscribe to a Trial Period offered once only (counting one offer per PC). If you have previously received a Trial, you will not be eligible to receive another Trial. The Trial Period cannot be extended, suspended or delayed and will expire upon completion and is not capable of renewal without prior approval by us. You agree not to attempt to register any false information or to manipulate the registration and login system to gain access to additional Trial Period or unauthorised access to the Site without payment.

You may abandon, cancel or opt-out of the Trial at any time prior to the expiry of the Trial Period stated incurring no extra cost when doing so. For free trial offers, continued access to our Site as a Subscriber will end unless a recurring billing subscription is completed and activated before the end of the Trial Period.

After the Trial Period is completed, your login and registration information will remain active for you to access limited areas of the Website. We cannot guarantee that any information or data in relation to completion of tasks in the Website or progress during the Trial Period is preserved and available for use after expiry of the Trial Period and your child may need to restart its activities if a recurring billing subscription is activated after the Trial Period.

You agree to us collecting, using and analysing all data, progress, scores and activities completed during the Trial Period pursuant to these Terms.

At any time during the Trial Period, you may upgrade your subscription to a paid subscription by completing the recurring billing subscription process.

Billing

Your subscription to our Site and/or our Mobile Software will begin on the date on which we accept your paid registration (Subscription Date).

Your subscription is not confirmed until your payment has been received by us. The acceptance of the contract by checking the box during the subscription process has the same value as a handwritten signature. At the same time you complete the subscription process you will be sent a confirmation email recalling the terms and conditions of your subscription and your subscription will then commence. It is recommended that you keep this email and/or print it out.

Subscriptions are continuous. This means that once you have become a Subscriber, you accept that your subscription will be automatically renewed from one period to the other (Subscription Period) and your credit/debit card will be charged based on the subscription request.

Charges should be processed within 24 hours after the subscription request has been submitted by you.

By purchasing a subscription you confirm that you are the holder of the payment card or account from which payment will be taken, and/or are authorised to use that payment card or account for the transaction and any renewals.

Price

The price of the Service is expressed in the relevant local currency of the Website. Acceptable payment methods will be displayed at the time payment is made. Each renewal of your subscription will be at the price that you were originally charged for that subscription when you subscribed unless otherwise stated or there is a change in your subscription price. Subscription prices may be changed by us at any time and we shall provide you with appropriate notice of any change in your subscription price prior to the effective date of the new pricing by email or other reasonable means such as a notice on the website or in usual member communications. If you do not wish to continue with your subscription due to the new price, you may opt out of renewal as set forth in clause 9 below.

Cancellations and refunds

Cancellation

You may contact us at any time if you wish to cancel your Subscription to our Site.

Upon receiving your notice of cancellation, we will terminate your access to the Site immediately on the day that cancellation occurs. You will not be entitled to a refund for any portion of the Subscription Period remaining after cancellation.

If you cancel your Subscription outside of the trial period, the cancellation must be carried out a minimum of 48hrs before the subscription renewal date. This delay is necessary to ensure that the cancellation has taken effect prior to the bank taking payment for the subscription service. If you cancel your Subscription less than 48hrs before the subscription renewal date you run the risk that the cancellation will not be effective before the following renewal date, whereby the payment for that period may be automatically debited from your account before the cancellation will take effect.

Refunds

All refunds will be credited to the credit/debt card to which your subscription was charged. Please allow a reasonable time for the refund to be charged back to your card.

Any payments deducted from your credit card after your cancellation notice has been received will be refunded in full.

If you do not let us know that you want to terminate your subscription as set out above, the payment for the renewal period of the subscription will still be made.

The renewal of the subscription takes place subject to the Terms in force on the date of renewal.

Credit card Transactions

All credit card transactions are done over a secure internet connection using 128 BIT SSL encryption.

Digital certificates are used to maximise security when receiving credit card information. Purchasing information provided from online transactions is used for accounting purposes only.

After payment, no credit card details are retained or stored. Stringent physical and technological measures are taken to protect customer information.

Termination

If we decide to discontinue use of the Website or Service we will make a reasonable effort to provide you with a pro-rata refund of any monies paid for our service unless the account was suspended or terminated due to unlawful conduct. If you breach these Terms, we may suspend or terminate your access to the Website and Service and in such circumstances you will not be entitled to a refund of any monies paid.
