Description of Service
Time4Writing’s website offers online writing courses designed to help elementary, middle, and high school students build and master the art of writing at all levels (the “Service”). As a software-based Service with ongoing updates based on user feedback, there may be problems of implementation or performance, commonly known as “bugs”. Although Time4Writing strives to test, update, maintain, and optimize its system regularly so that the Service is delivered to users safely and effectively, the Service is provided “as-is” and Time4Writing makes no guarantees as to the quality, reliability or fitness for any particular purpose of its Service.
Individual Users. “Individual Users” (e.g. parents unaffiliated with a particular school or institution) wishing to register for an 8-week online writing course offered by Time4Writing must create an account with Time4Writing and pay a one-time fee for a token, which can be redeemed for a course. Individual Users may submit payment online using Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express, or Paypal™, and receive a token as soon as they submit payment. Individual users who wish to pay by alternative means, such as a personal check, must contact Time4Writing at [email protected] to make arrangements. Payments made by personal check usually take 2-4 business days to process, however it may take longer. Individual Users paying by personal check will receive a token once Time4Writing receives and processes the payment. The token is available to redeem a course for one year from the date of purchase.
Institutional Users. “Institutional Users” (e.g. schools and educational institutions, and parents affiliated with an approved institution) wishing to utilize Time4Writing courses in support of or in lieu of their writing curriculum must contact Time4Writing and complete and sign a Purchase Order (PO) Servicing Agreement. Time4Writing will bill the Institutional User in accordance with the billing policies outlined in the PO Servicing Agreement, which is specifically incorporated herein and made part of the Terms of Service by reference.
Refunds & Cancellations. All payments to Time4Writing are non-refundable, and no refunds or credits will be issued, except as provided herein. Individual Users who pay by credit card or Paypal™ have 14-days from the date they redeem a token to cancel that course and request a refund, provided the token is redeemed within 90 days of purchase (“14-day Money Back Guarantee”). Any requests for cancellation after the 14-day Money Back Guarantee period will not be entitled to a refund. Individual Users may request a cancellation and a refund any time during the 14-day Money Back Guarantee period by contacting Time4Writing at [email protected] or 855-771-0915. The token is available to redeem a course one year from the date of purchase.
Billing Security. Time4Writing uses Secure Sockets Layer technology that sends credit card data in encrypted code. Time4Writing does not keep a record of, or have access to your credit card number.
Passwords. Your password gives you access to the Service. Please take appropriate measures to keep your password confidential and do not share it with third parties or with your children. You will be responsible for all activities that occur under your password regardless of whether you are the person who took such actions. If your password gets disclosed, please advise Time4Writing immediately and we will issue a new password and eliminate the previous one.
