  1. Account Establishment Process
    1. User accounts. ChuChuSchool is open to children beneath the age of 18 and accounts are created by parents. ChuChuSchool services require the collection of minimal non-identifiable information from children specifically first name, surname initial, age, academic year and voice recording for reading and vocabulary testing.
    2. Account Fees. For certain types of Accounts, we may charge a fee, such as an Account fee or subscription fee. For existing subscribers, we may change your fee at any time at our sole discretion at the end of your subscription period, provided that we first notify you by email. All fees 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 new subscribers.
    3. Authorization to Charge for Services. You must either use a credit card or other payment mechanism accepted by us e.g. debit card, Stripe etc… (“Pay Mechanism”) to activate and maintain a paid Account. You authorize us to charge you through the Pay Mechanism that you use when registering for an Account. You will also be responsible for charges 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 Account subscription you selected and for up to an additional ninety days. You will not be charged more than the amount for which you purchased your Account 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 Company, Company will in no way be responsible or liable to you for any such breach.
    4. Subscription Renewal. By activating an Account, you agree that we may renew your subscription automatically for the same subscription term on the day after your previous subscription ends, and you authorize us to charge you for the subscription term, unless you cancel your Account prior to its renewal date through the procedures described in the “Subscription Cancellation” section below. 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.
    5. Subscription Cancellation. To cancel your subscription and avoid future billing, you may cancel your Account prior to its renewal date through the My Account area in the Parents Section. For all Accounts, you will continue to have access to your Account for the period of time that has already been prepaid. If you activated a paid Account at a discounted or promotional rate, chose to pay in installments, and then canceled that Account prior to all of the installments having been paid, the period of time after cancellation that your Account will continue to be accessible will be calculated based on the non-promotional/non-discounted rate in effect at the time of cancellation. After you cancel your Account, 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, you will be able to continue to use the Services throughout the remainder of the subscription period for which you have already paid.
    6. Account deactivation. A user account is deemed to be inactive if there has been no login or usage during a 12 month period. Once an account has been inactive for 12 months it is removed from the ChuChuSchool system and all data deleted.
