Learning A-Z Terms of Service
PLEASE READ THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS CAREFULLY BEFORE ACTIVATING YOUR ACCOUNT.
1. ACCEPTANCE OF TERMS
Learning A-Z provides its services on any purchased website to you, subject to the following Terms of Service ("TOS"), which may be updated from time to time. Please bookmark this page to review the most current version of the TOS at any time. Your use of any purchased website and its materials constitutes your agreement to all such terms, conditions, policies, and notices (the "Agreement"). This Agreement is a legal document that governs the terms and conditions of your subscription to Learning A-Z. You are also agreeing to accept a non-exclusive, non-assignable right and license to use Learning A-Z and its resources. Learning A-Z is offered and sold on a subscription basis; however, certain areas are available to visitors without cost on a trial or demonstration basis.
2. DESCRIPTION OF SERVICE
Learning A-Z provides users with access to a rich collection of teaching resources through its collection of websites (the "Service"): Raz-Plus, Reading A-Z, Raz-Kids, Headsprout, Science A-Z, Writing A-Z, Vocabulary A-Z and Foundations A-Z. Unless explicitly stated otherwise, any new features that augment or enhance the current Service, including the release of new resources, shall be subject to the TOS. You understand and agree that the Service is provided "AS-IS" and that Learning A-Z assumes no responsibility for the timeliness, deletion, mis-delivery, or failure to store any user communications or personalization settings.
You are responsible for obtaining access to the Service, and that access may involve third-party fees (such as Internet service provider or airtime charges). You are responsible for those fees. In addition, you must provide and are responsible for all equipment necessary to access the Service.
3. LICENSE USAGE
A license grants access to the purchased Learning A-Z website as well as permission to use its copyrighted resources as part of the classroom curriculum. Each educator using the resources must have a license in order to obtain the necessary permission. Each Learning A-Z license is valid for one family or classroom only (with up to 36 students). If your family or classroom has less than 36 students, it is not permitted to share a license with another family or classroom. Purchasers of Learning A-Z Licenses may not resale, distribute or otherwise share classroom seats to parties outside of the individual classroom or family for which the license is purchased. Licenses must be maintained for continued permission to use downloaded, copyrighted materials. Each license must be registered in the name of the classroom teacher using the resources.
As part of the registration process, each educator will select, or be provided with, a username and password ("Username"). You agree to provide us with accurate, complete, unique and updated contact information for each educator using downloaded resources or accessing the website(s). Failure to do so will constitute a breach of this Agreement, which may result in immediate termination of your rights to use the resources or access the account. You may not (a) select or use a Username of another person with the intent to impersonate that person, (b) use a name subject to the rights of any other person without written authorization from that individual, or (c) use a Username that we, in our sole discretion, deem inappropriate or offensive. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your username and password, and you will be responsible for all uses of your username and password, whether or not authorized by you.
In order to access the Service, or use its downloaded resources, you need to obtain a username and password (“Username”). Usernames are either selected by, or issued to, individual subscribers or educators within a learning institution (collectively, "Users") as part of the registration process. You agree to provide us with accurate, complete, unique and updated contact information for each educator using downloaded resources or accessing the Services. Failure to do so will constitute a breach of this Agreement, which may result in immediate termination of your rights to use the resources or access the account. You may not (a) select or use a Username of another person with the intent to impersonate that person, (b) use a name subject to the rights of any other person without written authorization from that individual, or (c) use a Username that we, in our sole discretion, deem inappropriate or offensive. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your username and password, and you will be responsible for all uses of your username and password, whether or not authorized by you.
You also agree that Usernames may not be shared within anyone outside the registered classroom and/or family. They may only be used by the administrator, educator, or student to whom they are assigned. Users remain at all times solely and fully responsible for the proper use of Usernames issued hereunder. Users also agree to supervise and take full responsibility for the use of the Website by minors under the age of 13 years.
All Users are entirely liable for all activities conducted through that Account, and are responsible for ensuring that any other person within the registered classroom and/or family who uses the Account is aware of, and complies with, the terms of this Agreement. Each person who uses the Account agrees to be bound by the terms of this Agreement, whether or not such person is a Member.
You are responsible for notifying us immediately of any known or suspected unauthorized use(s) of your Account, or any known or suspected breach of security, including loss, theft, or unauthorized disclosure of your Username. You must also promptly change your Username to prevent unauthorized access to your Account. We will have no liability for any circumstances arising from the unauthorized use of a Username or your Account. Any fraudulent, abusive, or otherwise illegal activity on your Account may be reported to appropriate law-enforcement agencies by us.
4. MODIFICATIONS TO SERVICE
Learning A-Z reserves the right at any time and from time to time to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the Service (or any part thereof) with or without notice. You agree that Learning A-Z shall not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, suspension, or discontinuance of the Service.
Learning A-Z may change, add, or remove any part of this Agreement, or any other terms associated with the use of the website, at any time, by posting a notice of such changes to the Terms of Service page of the website. Any changes shall become part of the Agreement and shall apply as soon as such a notice is posted.

5. SPONSORS, THIRD PARTIES, AND ADVERTISERS
