The application supplies users with a platform for consuming educational content, practicing abacus math, and for supporting interaction between students ("Student User"), teachers, and administrators ("Educator User") in an education setting. By using the Service, you signify your consent to these Terms of Service. If you do not agree to these Terms of Service, please do not use the Service. Learn Abacus Online reserves the right to update and change the Terms of Service from time to time without notice and each revision will be effective when it is posted on the Service. Continued use of the Service after any such changes shall constitute your consent to such changes.

2. USER ELIGIBILITY

Learn Abacus Online is a platform for all levels of students and their educators. Accordingly, we are subject to the Children's Online Privacy and Protection Act ("COPPA"). Registration data and other information about the Student User are subject to our Privacy Policy. 

If you are a student under 13, please do not send any personal information about yourself to us if we have not obtained prior consent from your parent or guardian, and please do not send any personal information other than what we request from you in connection with the Service.

If we learn we have collected personal information from a student under 13 without the proper consent being obtained by his or her parent or guardian, or if we learn a student under 13 has provided us personal information beyond what we request from him or her, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that a student under 13 may have provided us personal information in violation of this paragraph, please contact us at¬†[email protected].

3. ACCOUNT REGISTRATION OBLIGATIONS

In consideration for your use of the Service, you agree to: (a) provide true, accurate, current, and complete information about yourself as prompted by the Service's registration form (such information being the "Registration Data") and (b) maintain and promptly update the Registration Data to keep it true, accurate, current and complete. If you provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current, or incomplete, or Learn Abacus Online has reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is untrue, inaccurate, not current, or incomplete, Learn Abacus Online has the right to suspend or terminate your account and refuse any and all current or future use of the Service (or any portion thereof).

4. BILLING, PAYMENTS, CANCELATION, AND REFUNDS TERMS

a. Billing

By completing the registration for enrollment, you are expressly agreeing that Learn Abacus Online is authorized to automatically charge you the Service fee. This could include, but is not limited to, a recurring membership fee depending on your selected membership plan. You further agree that each billing cycle, Learn Abacus Online is authorized to automatically charge you the membership fee associated with the membership plan you chose during registration.

Price and charges are subject to change with notice and will be effective the next billing period. Each billing cycle you will be charged the then-current rate to the Payment Method you provided during registration (or to a different Payment Method you provide us if you change your account information). As used in these Terms of Service, "billing" shall indicate either a charge or debit, as applicable, against your Payment Method. The membership fee will be billed at the beginning of your selected billing cycle for your student's membership plan, and will continue to bill every billing cycle thereafter unless and until you cancel your membership. We automatically bill your Payment Method on the calendar day corresponding to the commencement of your paying membership. Membership charges are fully earned upon payment.

You acknowledge that the amount billed each billing period may vary for reasons that include differing amounts due to changes in your membership plan, and you authorize us to charge your Payment Method for such varying amounts. Payments are nonrefundable, and there are no refunds or credits for partially used periods. Payments through third-party companies such as Affirm and PayPal Credit are absolutely nonrefundable, as your agreement is set directly with the chosen third-party financial company. We may change the fees and charges in effect or add new fees and charges from time to time, but we will give you advance notice of these changes by e-mail. If you want to use a different Payment Method or if there is a change in Payment Method, such as your credit card validity or expiration date, you may reach out to us to update your Payment Method at [email protected]. If your Payment Method reaches its expiration date and you do not notify us to change your Payment Method information or cancel your account (see, "Cancelation" below), you authorize us to continue billing that Payment Method and you remain responsible for any uncollected amounts.

Learn Abacus Online tutoring sessions are non-refundable.

b. Ongoing Membership

Your Learn Abacus Online membership will continue in effect unless and until you cancel your membership or we terminate it. When canceling your membership, you must provide a minimum of a 30-day notice. We will bill the membership fee at the then-current rate plus any applicable tax to the Payment Method you provide to us during registration (or to a different Payment Method if you change your account information). Membership fees are fully earned upon payment.

c. Cancelation

Subscription Cancelations: Monthly Billing

Your cancelation is effective 30 days from the date you send the cancelation request. You will have one final payment during this period, at which you will be charged a prorated fee for the period from your monthly billing date to the last day of service. You will continue to have full access to the program until the 30-day period ends.

Subscription Cancelations: Semi-annual or Annual Billing

You may cancel your membership with no additional fees as long as you send a cancellation request before the calendar date of the start of your next billing cycle. You will continue to have full access to the program until said date. Recurring Semi-annual or Annual payments are nonrefundable, and there are no refunds or credits for partially used membership periods.

d. Refunds

Our Clear Action-Based Satisfaction Guarantee on our Learn Abacus Online Program

At Abacus Brain Gym and Learn Abacus Online, we stand behind the ability of our training to get you results when you spend the time studying and implementing what you learn. Because of this we simply ask that you give the program a fair attempt.

In order to qualify for our guarantee you must simply do the following while taking our program.

1. Attend at least 80% of classes for the semester. (This condition does not apply for students who take the self-guided program without a teacher)

2. Make an honest attempt at practicing the homework and completing the required quizzes in our software. This means you put effort throughout the semester and completed at least 80% of our required homework quizzes in the first level (Grade 10).

An example of an ‚Äúhonest‚ÄĚ attempt would be applying time and effort over a¬†6 month period and participating in the training.

A dishonest attempt would be waiting until the last month and aimlessly attempting to complete the software lessons.

We are extremely lenient on this and as long as you put in some sort of genuine effort we are more than happy to issue your refund if you are not satisfied and do not see results.

We have this guarantee to protect the value of our information and curriculum.

It’s our responsibility to teach you and your child to the best of our efforts.

It is your responsibility to make sure your child attends the classes or studies the lesson videos and practices the homework.

If you do not get results after learning and practicing with the material our program delivers, then it is our fault and we will happily refund you instantly.

If you do not apply the training or have the discipline to keep up with the homework and practice, it is, unfortunately, your fault.

As long as you intend to use this program and do the bare minimum above you have very little risk.

To claim your refund you must also terminate your access to your Account and return all properties of Abacus Brain Gym LLC to the vendor. This includes your account and access to our courses and our software.

Our Registration Fee is NON-REFUNDABLE. The maximum value our satisfaction guarantee covers, or in other words, the maximum amount refundable is the charge for a one semester (6 months) membership minus the registration fee.
