CHARGES AND BILLING
DIRECT PURCHASE LearnSmart may offer the opportunity to purchase the right to use or access the Software for a fixed period of time ("Direct Purchase").
TRIAL ACCESS LearnSmart may offer various opportunities to try using our Software for a fixed period of time ("Trial"). A Trial has a Minimum Usage Requirement equal to an average of not less than ten (10) minutes per day of Trial time access granted by LearnSmart. Unless you cancel prior to the end of the Trial or other promotional period for your purchase (typically but not limited to 7, 10, or 30 Days depending on the promotion or program, but not to exceed 30 Days), you will be automatically enrolled in the program for which your Trial is for and we will begin billing your credit card for fees at the current rate in effect for your access to and use of the Software plus any applicable sales taxes. In order to cancel, you must meet the Minimum Usage Requirement before the end of your Trial period. Minimum usage is calculated as the recorded time spent watching a full segment of video within the online video Software system one single time as recorded by LearnSmart. Multiple views of a single segment of video will count as only a single viewing instance for the purposes of calculating minimum usage. For your convenience and in order to provide you with uninterrupted Access, we will charge the access fees (plus any taxes) to the credit card you provide to us during registration (or to a different credit card if you change your account information) according to the terms specified by the program. You should understand that the applicable Trial period runs continuously from the earliest of your initial registration or purchase or initial Trial payment regardless of your use of the Software, and to avoid being charged for fees associated with Software, you must cancel your account before the end of the Trial period. If you decide to cancel you must notify LearnSmart within the program's specified Trial or other promotional period through our online ticket system at www.learnsmartsystems.com/support to indicate that you want to cancel the program. Alternatively, you may submit your cancellation notice via certified USPS postal mail or FedEx with signature required for delivery postmarked within 30 Days from the date of purchase to LearnSmart, LLC, ATTN: Trial Cancellation Notice, PO Box 21068 Seattle, WA 98111-3068. Terms for postal mail cancellation are identical to terms for online cancellation. Your account will remain active until cancellation is confirmed by LearnSmart and you will retain access to Software while your account is active and in good standing. Upon confirmation by LearnSmart of your request to cancel, the License will terminate immediately and no portion of any Access fees will be refunded. A limit of one (1) cancellation per household or organization per 24 months.
CONTINUING ACCESS PROGRAM LearnSmart may offer various opportunities to enroll in a service that allows continuous viewing of certain Software provided access fees have been paid in advance ("Continuing Access Program"). Unless you have made a Direct Purchase or you cancel prior to the end of any Trial or other promotional period, you will be automatically enrolled in the Continuing Access Program and we will begin billing your credit card for fees at the current rate in effect for your access to and use of the Software plus any applicable sales taxes. For your convenience and in order to provide you with uninterrupted Access, we will charge the access fees (plus any taxes) to the credit card you provide to us during registration (or to a different credit card if you change your account information). Thereafter, your Access, whether it is Trial or another promotional period, and provided it is not a Direct Purchase, will automatically renew for similar successive time periods, without prior notice to you, unless and until you cancel your Continuing Access Program or we terminate it. You must cancel your Continuing Access Program before it renews in order to avoid billing of additional access fees to your credit card. We will continue to bill your credit card on a monthly basis (or other periodic billing, depending upon the terms and time period of your Continuing Access Program) for your access to and use of the Software until you cancel your Continuing Access Plan. If you are not satisfied with the fees or billing methods, you may cancel your Continuing Access Program at any time, but LearnSmart will not refund any remaining portion of the monthly (or other periodic) fee when you cancel and you will be obligated to pay any remaining fee(s) due to LearnSmart to honor your Continuing Access Program agreement at the time of cancellation. If you agreed to a free or paid Trial period for Access, you should understand that the applicable time period runs continuously from your initial registration regardless of your use of the Software, and to avoid being charged for fees associated with the Continuing Access Program, you must cancel your account before the end of the Trial period. LearnSmart reserves the right to change our fees or billing methods at any time, but we will give you thirty (30) Days advance notice of these changes if your Continuing Access Program fee(s) will be affected. In certain circumstances, termination charges may apply if you cancel prior to the end of a designated term, if, for example, you have obtained a bonus product. LearnSmart also reserves the right to terminate your Access at any time and for any reason, including any violation of Export Control Laws as more fully set forth in the "Export Control Laws" section below. In the event LearnSmart terminates your access, and if applicable, your Continuing Access Program, the License will terminate immediately without notice from LearnSmart and no portion of any Access fees will be refunded.
DELINQUENT ACCOUNTS Missed or otherwise unmade payments will result in your account being considered delinquent by LearnSmart. Service for delinquent accounts is immediately suspended until such account is made whole by you. Delinquent accounts require payment in full for remaining balance and are subject to a $50.00 processing fee, or the maximum allowable by law whichever is less, for each unreceived payment. User is responsible for all legal fees, collection fees and other related expenses incurred by LearnSmart to secure payment for your account.
