If the Buyer is unable to sign for a delivery to the address provided and has not notified the Seller in writing of any special delivery instructions, including but not limited to a change of address, an additional shipping charge will be applied if the order requires reshipment. If for any reason Buyer fails to accept delivery of any of the Goods on the date fixed pursuant to Seller’s notice that the Goods have been delivered at the Delivery Point, or if Seller is unable to deliver the Goods at the Delivery Point on such date because Buyer has not provided appropriate instructions, documents, licenses or authorizations: (i) risk of loss to the Goods shall pass to Buyer; (ii) the Goods shall be deemed to have been delivered; and (iii) Seller, at its option, may store the Goods until Buyer picks them up, whereupon Buyer shall be liable for all related costs and expenses (including, without limitation, storage, and insurance).

You affirm that you are either more than 18 years of age, or an emancipated minor, or possess legal parental or guardian consent, and are fully able and competent to enter into the terms, conditions, obligations, affirmations, representations, and warranties set forth in these Terms of Service, and to abide by and comply with these Terms of Service.

13. Assignment

These Terms of Service, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you, but may be assigned by Schoolwide without restriction.

14. General

You agree that: (i) the Schoolwide Website shall be deemed solely based in New York; and (ii) the Schoolwide Website shall be deemed a passive website that does not give rise to personal jurisdiction over Schoolwide, either specific or general, in jurisdictions other than New York. These Terms of Service shall be governed by the internal substantive laws of the State of New York, without respect to its conflict of laws principles. Any claim or dispute between you and Schoolwide that arises in whole or in part from your use of the Schoolwide Website shall be decided exclusively by a court of competent jurisdiction located in Suffolk County, New York. These Terms of Service, together with the Privacy Notice, and any other legal notices published by Schoolwide on the Website, shall constitute the entire agreement between you and Schoolwide concerning the Schoolwide Website. If any provision of these Terms of Service is deemed invalid by a court of competent jurisdiction, the invalidity of such provision shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of these Terms of Service, which shall remain in full force and effect. No waiver of any term of this these Terms of Service shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or any other term, and Schoolwide’s failure to assert any right or provision under these Terms of Service shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. Schoolwide reserves the right to amend these Terms of Service at any time and without any notice, and it is your responsibility to regularly review these Terms of Service for any changes. Your use of the Schoolwide Website following any amendment of these Terms of Service will signify your assent to and acceptance of its revised terms. YOU AND SCHOOLWIDE AGREE THAT ANY CAUSE OF ACTION ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THE SCHOOLWIDE WEBSITE MUST COMMENCE WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER THE CAUSE OF ACTION ACCRUES. OTHERWISE, SUCH CAUSE OF ACTION IS PERMANENTLY BARRED.

FUNDAMENTALS UNLIMITED TERMS OF USE

1. Your Acceptance

A. By using Fundamentals Unlimited, you signify your agreement to (1) Free Trial Terms of Use (as contained herein), (2) Schoolwide’s Website Terms of Service, (3) Schoolwide’s Privacy Notice, and (4) Schoolwide’s Community Guidelines.

B. Although we may attempt to notify you when changes are made to the Terms of Service, you should periodically review the most up-to-date version(s), which are located at www.schoolwide.com. Schoolwide may, in its sole discretion, modify or revise the Terms of Service and policies at any time, and you agree to be bound by such modifications or revisions. Nothing in the Terms of Service shall be deemed to confer any third-party rights or benefits.  

2. Subscription, Free Trials, Billing and Cancellation

A. Subscription  

I. Ongoing Subscription. Your Fundamentals Unlimited subscription, which may start with a free trial, will continue monthly unless and until you cancel your subscription or it is terminated by Schoolwide, Inc. You must provide us with a current, valid, accepted method of payment (which “Payment Method” may be updated from time to time) to use the Fundamentals Unlimited service. Schoolwide will bill the monthly subscription fee to your Payment Method. You must cancel your subscription before it renews each month in order to avoid billing of the next month’s subscription fees to your Payment Method. 

II. Differing Subscriptions. Schoolwide may offer a number of subscription plans, including but not limited to: fixed annual subscriptions for varying terms (e.g., one year, two years, five years), special promotional plans, or subscriptions with differing conditions and limitations. For fixed annual subscriptions, the terms outlined above for “Ongoing Subscriptions,” including monthly billing and auto-renew until cancellation, do not apply. We reserve the right to modify, terminate, or otherwise amend our offered subscription plans.

B. Free Trials  

I. Your Fundamentals Unlimited subscription may start with a free trial. The free trial period of your subscription lasts for 30 days, or as otherwise specified during sign-up. Free trials are for new members only. Schoolwide reserves the right, in its absolute discretion, to determine your free trial eligibility. 

II. Schoolwide will begin billing your Payment Method for monthly subscription fees at the end of the free trial period of your subscription unless you cancel prior to the end of the free trial period. 

III. You will not receive a notice from us that your free trial period has ended or that the paying portion of your subscription has begun. To cancel your subscription, contact Schoolwide, Inc. at customersuccess@schoolwide.webfixion.com or toll–free at 1.800.261.9964 ext. 2. We will continue to bill your Payment Method for your subscription fee on a monthly basis until you cancel. 

C. Billing  

I. Recurring Billing. By starting your Fundamentals Unlimited subscription and providing or designating a Payment Method, you authorize us to charge you a monthly subscription fee at the then current rate, and any other charges you may incur in connection with your use of the Fundamentals Unlimited service, to your Payment Method.  

II. Price Changes. We reserve the right to adjust pricing for our service or any components thereof in any manner and at any time as we may determine in our sole and absolute discretion. Except as otherwise expressly provided for in these Terms of Use, any price changes to your service will take effect following email notice to you. 

III. Billing Cycle. The subscription fee for our service will be billed at the beginning of the paying portion of your subscription and each month thereafter unless and until you cancel your subscription. We automatically bill your Payment Method each month on the calendar day corresponding to the commencement of your paying subscription. Subscription fees are fully earned upon payment. We reserve the right to change the timing of our billing, in particular, as indicated below, if your Payment Method has not successfully settled. In the event your paying subscription began on a day not contained in a given month, we may bill your Payment Method on a day in the applicable month or such other day as we deem appropriate. No Refunds. PAYMENTS ARE NONREFUNDABLE AND THERE ARE NO REFUNDS OR CREDITS FOR PARTIALLY USED PERIODS. Following any cancellation, however, you will continue to have access to the service through the end of your current billing period. At any time, and for any reason, we may provide a refund, discount, or other consideration to some or all of our members (“credits”). The amount and form of such credits, and the decision to provide them, are in our sole and absolute discretion. The provision of credits in one instance does not entitle you to credits in the future for similar instances, nor does it obligate us to provide credits in the future, under any circumstance.  

IV. Payment Methods. You may edit your Payment Method information by visiting our website and clicking on the “Manage Account” link. If a payment is not successfully settled, due to expiration, insufficient funds, or otherwise, and you do not edit your Payment Method information or cancel your account (see, “Cancellation” below), you remain responsible for any uncollected amounts and authorize us to continue billing the Payment Method, as it may be updated. This may result in a change to your payment billing dates. 

V. Cancellation. You may cancel your Fundamentals Unlimited subscription at any time, and you will continue to have access to the Fundamentals Unlimited service through the end of your monthly billing period. SCHOOLWIDE DOES NOT PROVIDE REFUNDS OR CREDITS FOR ANY PARTIAL-MONTH SUBSCRIPTION PERIODS. To cancel, go to the “Manage Account” page on our website and follow the instructions for cancellation. If you cancel your subscription, your account will automatically close at the end of your current billing period.
