Your Acceptance of These Terms of Use

Artree Preschool and its affiliated websites (“Artree”, “we” and “us”) offer educational services aimed at preschool aged children. Please take a few minutes to review, understand and accept the Terms of Use before using Artree Preschool’s main and affiliated websites artreekids.com, blog.artreekids.com and learn.artreekids.com (the "Site"). By using the Site, you agree to these Terms of Use. If you do not agree to these Terms of Use, please do not use the Site.


Your Acceptance of Our Privacy Policy

By agreeing to these Terms of Use, you agree to the terms of our Privacy Policy before using this Site; please review the Privacy Policy carefully.


Your Consent to Other Agreements

When you sign up to use a special feature of this Site, you may be asked to expressly consent to special terms, for example, by checking a box or clicking on a button marked, “I agree.” This separate agreement will supplement or amend these Terms of Use, but only with respect to the matters governed by such separate agreement.


Registration, Membership, Fees


Registration

A registration is required to access Artree’s online lessons. As described in our Privacy Policy, only a parent or legal guardian may create and manage the user registration on behalf of the child.

Membership to Access Content

Artree currently offers the following type of pricing options for the online lessons:

Free Lessons

No payment is required to access the lesson content. A free lesson may be accessed multiple times for as long as it is available in Artree’s online learning catalog. Artree reserves the right to add, edit and remove free lessons at any time without prior notification.

One-Time Payment (Time-Limited Access)

A registration and a one-time payment are required to access the lesson content. The lesson is available for 45 days from the course start date.

Since Artree follows a school year calendar, individual courses are sold from September through June. Upcoming courses will not be available for purchase more than a month prior to their intended start date (for example, a December course won’t yet be available for purchase in September, but it will be in the middle of November). Past courses will remain available for purchase.

Subscriptions

A registration and a recurring monthly payment are required to access sets of courses which are sold as a bundle. Artree’s online classes follow the school year calendar and a bundle typically covers all lessons for a given school year. Lessons are released weekly within the bundle.

Single-Use Discount Coupons

Artree may offer various types of discount coupons to use as a form of payment for online lessons. Coupons may be time-limited. Artree reserves the right to decline a coupon if it is used fraudulently.


Fees

For certain types of content access, we may charge a fee, such as a membership fee or one-time fee. We may change any fee or charge at any time in our discretion. All fees and charges are payable in accordance with payment terms in effect at the time the fee or the charge becomes payable. We may offer promotional trial subscriptions to access the Site for free or at special discounted prices. If you sign up for a trial use, your rights to use the Site are limited by the terms of such trial and will terminate or renew on the terms of your trial arrangement and/or any applicable Additional Terms. Please note that we do not provide price protection or refunds in the event of a price drop or promotional offering.

Authorization to Charge for Services

You authorize us to charge you through the payment mechanism that you use when registering for paid content. You will also be responsible for charges for any products or services that you order that are offered for sale through the Site. If we do not receive payment from your credit card issuer, or other payment mechanism that you use, you agree to pay all amounts due hereunder upon our demand and will be solely responsible for any dispute with your payment provider. Should the credit card or other payment mechanism provided initially be declined for insufficient funds or for any other reason, we reserve the right to charge the credit card or other payment mechanism in installments, at the non-promotional/non-discounted rate in effect at that time, for the duration of the Account subscription you have selected. You will be solely responsible for all overdraft fees and/or penalties that may be assessed by your payment provider.

Subscription Renewal

For subscription bundles we will renew your access automatically unless you cancel your subscription through the My Account area prior to its renewal date. We will charge your credit card each year, month or other applicable period (depending on the term applicable at the time of initial purchase) for the then-current applicable price.

Subscription Cancellation

To avoid future billing, you may cancel your subscription to Artree’s content prior to 4pm EST on the renewal/charge date through the My Account area. You will continue to have access to the content for the period of time that has already been prepaid, calculated based on the non-promotional/non-discounted rate in effect at the time of cancellation. An email confirming your cancellation will be sent to your email address. There will be no additional billing or charges from the date of cancellation. Please note, we do not provide full or partial refunds for prepaid sums. Feel free to continue to use the Site throughout the remainder of the subscription period for which you have already paid.


Passwords and Account Access

You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and Account information. You agree that: (a) you will provide accurate registration information about yourself and any individual you authorize to access your Account and keep your Account information up-to-date; and (b) each Account administrator is solely responsible for all activities that occur under his/her Account. You agree to notify us immediately of any unauthorized Account use. We are in no way responsible for any loss that you may incur as a result of any unauthorized use of your Account and password. You will not sell, transfer, or assign your Account or any Account rights.


Shipping and Delivery

This category does not apply to Artree’s online preschool as lessons are accessed via the internet. You are responsible for any cost and shipping charges for products linked from Artree, such as specific supplies for a particular lesson.

You are responsible for any user-generated content. This means that you, not Artree, can be held personally liable for content that is defamatory, obscene, or libelous, or that violates these Terms of Use, an obligation of confidentiality, or the rights of others. If any part of the user-generated content you post is not your original work, it is your responsibility to obtain any necessary permissions.

Because we do not control user-generated content posted on or through this Site, we cannot and do not warrant or guarantee the truthfulness, integrity, suitability, or quality of that user-generated content.

Removal of Content/DMCA Notice

In general. On certain pages of this Site, we may provide to you a tool to report objectionable user-generated content. If that tool is not available, you can report objectionable user-generated content and other objectionable content by contacting us. While we do not have any obligation to remove content from this Site merely because of a removal request, we will review all such requests and will remove content that we determine should be removed, in our sole discretion and in accordance with these Terms of Use and applicable law. Please be aware, however, that if the content has already been distributed to other websites or published in other media, we will not be able to recapture and delete it. Also, a back-up or residual copy of the content we remove from this Site may remain on back-up servers.

Violation of copyrights. Artree does not knowingly violate or permit others to violate the copyrights of others. We will promptly remove or disable access to material that we know is infringing or if we become aware of circumstances from which infringing activity is apparent.

If you are requesting removal of content because of a violation of your copyrights, please note that the Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the “DMCA”) provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the Internet infringes their rights under U.S. copyright law. If you believe that your own work, or the work of a third party for whom you are authorized to act, is featured on this Site or has been otherwise copied and made available on this Site in a manner that constitute copyright infringement, please notify us via email immediately. Your notice must be in writing and must include:


Any notification by a copyright owner or a person authorized to act on its behalf that fails to comply with requirements of the DMCA shall not be considered sufficient notice and shall not be deemed to confer upon us actual knowledge of facts or circumstances from which infringing material or acts are evident.

Your submission of feedback will constitute an assignment to us of all worldwide rights, title and interests, including all copyrights and other intellectual property rights.

This Site gives you specific legal rights and you may also have other rights which vary from country to country.

Unless the written waiver contains an express statement to the contrary, no waiver by Artree of any breach of any provision of these Terms of Use or of any right provided for herein will be construed as a waiver of any continuing or succeeding breach of such provision, a waiver of the provision itself, or a waiver of any right herein.


Severability

If any provision of these Terms of Use is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be contrary to law, such provision will be changed and interpreted so as to best accomplish the objectives of the original provision to the fullest extent allowed by law and the remaining provisions of these Terms of Use will remain in full force and effect.
