Bookstore Billing Policies
All bookstore (store.k5learning.com) sales are final. The K5 bookstore does not offer refunds.
Accounts and Subscriptions
In order to access certain password-restricted areas of the website (the "Member Area"), you must register an account with us and purchase a subscription ("Subscription").
Individual accounts are valid for one individual or one family only. If we have reasonable evidence to suspect an account is being shared by multiple users, we reserve the right to suspend your account.
Subscriptions and the rights and privileges provided to you as a subscriber are personal and non-transferable. Accounts may not be shared by more than one person or organization unless express authorization is given by K5. School accounts may be shared by all of the teachers working in each building for which an account has been purchased by the school.
You agree to pay all applicable fees related to your use of the Site. All fees are based on services purchased, regardless of actual usage. We may suspend or terminate your paid account and/or access to our Member Area if your payment is late and/or your offered payment method (e.g., credit card, PayPal, etc.) cannot be processed. By providing a payment method, individual account holders expressly authorize us to charge the applicable fees on their payment method at regular intervals as well as any taxes and other charges incurred in connection with your account, all of which depend on their particular Subscription.
Risk Free Period (Individual Accounts Only): When you originally create your K5 account and purchase a new paid Subscription, you are granted a seven (7) day risk-free period (the "Risk Free Period"). You may cancel your new subscription any time within 7 days of purchase, in which case your credit card will not be charged. This free cancellation period only applies to new users' original Subscriptions.
Payments & Renewals (Individual Accounts Only): By providing a payment method, you expressly authorize K5 and/or our third party payment processor to charge the applicable fees on said payment method as well as taxes and other charges incurred thereto at regular intervals according to the terms of your Subscription.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: SUBSCRIPTION RENEWAL FEES FOR INDIVIDUAL (NON-SCHOOL) ACCOUNTS WILL BE AUTOMATICALLY CHARGED TO YOUR CARD ON FILE EACH ANNUAL SUBSCRIPTION PERIOD, UNTIL YOU CANCEL.
If you have an individual account, unless you cancel prior to the expiration of your current Subscription, we will automatically renew your Subscription each year on the anniversary of the date that you signed up for the paid Subscription. We will charge your credit card with the applicable renewal Subscription fee and any applicable taxes.
School accounts. School licences may be purchased with a credit card. Payment will be immediate; there is no trial period. However, if a school is not satisfied with the membership, it may contact us within 10 days of the purchase and receive a full refund. Following that 10 day period, no refunds will be available.
In limited cases, we may accept payment by check or other methods at our discretion (contact us for details). Payment must be received by K5 no later than 30 days after issuance of an invoice. If K5 does not receive payment within 30 days, the invoice is past due and we reserve the right to suspend access to the affected school account(s).
For school accounts, all teachers in a school will share the same account and login information. K5 reserves the right to update the login information (changing username and / or password) from time to time.
School accounts do not automatically renew each year.
Cancellation: Except as discussed above, all cancellations requested before the end of the then-current term will be effective at the end of the current term. K5 DOES NOT OFFER REFUNDS FOR EARLY CANCELLATIONS.
Price Changes. We reserve the right to adjust the pricing for our Subscriptions, in any manner and at any time as we may determine in our sole and absolute discretion. We do not provide price protection or refunds in the event of promotions or price decreases
