WALDEN EXAM SOLUTIONS, LLC
Terms of Service
Effective June 18th, 2019
Please read these Terms carefully. Your use of the Site or submission of an order for the Products constitutes your agreement, without modification, to all of the terms, conditions, and notices in these Terms. If you do not accept these Terms, you may not use the Site or purchase or use the Products. Products include subscription-based or one-time access to those written and live or pre-recorded audio or audiovisual curriculum and test preparation materials, coaching sessions and related products or services available via the Site’s online ordering platform. Each order (“Order”) submitted via the Site will identify, among other things, the type of Products to be provided under these Terms and the charges and subscription term (if any) applicable to such Products.
Before you can access or use the Site or purchase any Products, you must be able to enter into a legally binding contract with us. This means that you must be at least eighteen (18) years old and have the legal capacity to enter into a contract. To use the Products, you must complete our registration completely and accurately, including, without limitation, agreeing to these Terms and providing us with correct contact and billing information. By using the Site or the Products, you represent and warrant that you satisfy these qualifications.
You must register and create an account with us in order to purchase and use our subscription-based Products, and you also have the option of creating an account to store your personal information to facilitate repeat orders. This may be done via the electronic marketplace features of our Site. You agree to provide and maintain your account with accurate and complete information about yourself as prompted by the Site. By providing us with such information, you authorize us and our third-party agents to make any inquiries we consider necessary to confirm such information. You will not impersonate any third party or misrepresent your identity or affiliation with any third party, including using another person’s account information, or another person’s name, likeness, voice, image or photograph.
You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your personal information and for restricting access to your computer and your account. You are responsible for all activities that occur under your access credentials, and we will not be liable for any actions by any other individual that uses your account (including, without limitation, any other authorized users), identity or personal information with or without your consent or knowledge. You also agree to notify us promptly of any unauthorized use of your account, account information, identity, or personal information, or other breach of security that you become aware of involving or relating to the Site or the Products. In addition, you agree to exit from your account at the end of each session.
We do not get involved in disputes over who owns an account. You will not request access to or information about an account that is not yours, and you must resolve any account-related disputes directly with the other party. We decide who owns an account based solely on the information available to us with respect to the account, including, without limitation, the contact information on the account.
PRODUCTS AND PRICING
We reserve the right to correct any errors or mistakes in pricing, Product description, or listings that we make on the Site or when processing an Order even if we have already requested or received payment. We also reserve the right to cancel or reschedule any live coaching or instruction sessions at any time before the scheduled session date. In such case, we will notify you of such changes or corrections via email and may refuse or cancel an order and refund any amounts paid. All purchases are subject to our policies and procedures relating to processing, scheduling returns and exchanges set forth herein and on the Site. All prices are in U.S. dollars.
Your receipt of an electronic or other form of order confirmation does not signify our acceptance of your Order, nor does it constitute confirmation of our offer to sell. We reserve the right, without prior notification, to refuse service to any customer. We may cancel an Order at any time if we determine that we will not be able to fulfill such Order, or for any other reason, and upon any such cancellation will notify you and refund any amounts paid by you for such Order. Verification of information may be required prior to the acceptance of any Order. Prices and availability of Products on the Site are subject to change without notice, except as otherwise expressly set forth in these Terms.
The fees applicable to your purchase of any Products are described in the applicable Order and are due and payable immediately upon purchase in order to unlock access to the Products. All fees will be collected via the credit card or other payment (e.g. PayPal® or ApplePay®) information you provide upon Order submission. By providing us with credit card or other payment information, you represent and warrant that you are authorized to use that credit card or payment method and that all charges under the applicable Order may be billed to that method and will not be rejected. If we cannot process your payment, we will try to contact you by email. In any case, we will suspend your Order and will not provide you with the Products until your payment can be processed. As long as you have an account with us for a subscription-based Product, you must maintain valid and current credit card or other payment information on file with us and authorize us to deduct any charges with respect to your account or use of the Products against that payment method.
Our fees for subscription-based Products are subject to change at any time on at least 60 days prior written notice to you at the email address you have on file with us, and if you do not agree to such changes, you should contact us to cancel your subscription as described under Term and Termination. You will not be entitled to receive a refund from us under any circumstances, including, without limitation upon termination of your account. As long as you maintain a subscription with us, your payment method will be charged as described in this paragraph.
All subscription fees are exclusive of taxes imposed on the sale of the Products, all of which are your sole responsibility, as described under Taxes, below.
We may collect and remit sales tax from our customers located in certain state and local jurisdictions, including those jurisdictions where services like the Products are taxable and where we maintain a physical presence. We determine your local taxing jurisdiction based on the billing address that you provide us in your Order or that is listed in your account (if you maintain an account with us).
You agree to be responsible for and to pay any sales, use, VAT, excise, withholding, or any other taxes that may be imposed, based on these Terms, use or possession of the Site or the Products, except for taxes based on net income payable by us (collectively, “Taxes”). All Taxes payable by you will be charged to you at the same time as the fees to which the taxes relate are charged.
ACCESS TO PRODUCTS
From time to time, we may establish minimum browser or system requirements (the “System Requirements”) for the equipment from which the Products should be accessed so that all included functionalities are operational; we will provide you notice of the System Requirements (if any) by posting them on the Site. You may be required to purchase or acquire software, hardware or services (such as Internet access services or web-player software) in order to utilize the Products or satisfy the System Requirements, as may be amended by us from time to time. You will be solely responsible for all such software, hardware and services.
We may suspend provision of the Products in whole or in part and without notice: (i) if we believe a users’ use of the Products represents a direct or indirect threat to the function or integrity of the Products, our or its service providers’ system or networks, or any third party’s use of the Products; (ii) if reasonably necessary to prevent unauthorized access to the Products or any data or materials included therein; (iii) to the extent necessary to comply with legal requirements; or (iv) as otherwise permitted under these Terms.
