5. Membership Terms, Conditions, and Cancellation

Each member account, and the Materials accessed under such account, are for the sole benefit of a single person or business entity, and no more than one, meaning that you may use the Materials and participate in Lightspan Digital member activities for yourself personally, or for a single business of which (a) you are an active, paid employee (not including engagement as an independent contractor) or (b) you are a principal (meaning that you own more than 5% of the voting equity of such business), but not any other business or entity, unless you receive express written permission from Lightspan Digital.  If you desire to use the Materials and/or participate in Lightspan Digital member activities for the benefit of additional persons or entities, you must either register another account for each such person or entity, or contact Lightspan Digital about a multi-user account.  (For the purposes of further clarification:  if you are a business consultant or provide related services to more than one business organization, we welcome your membership, but you may not use a single Lightspan Digital membership to provide Materials to any client or organization other than the one for which you specifically register such membership.)

When you register an account and become an Lightspan Digital member, you must submit and maintain current and accurate account and contact information, including a working e-mail address.  We may distribute notices and other important information to members to such e-mail address, and you are deemed to have received such notice if sent to the address of record for your account.

Your membership, and access to Materials and activities on the Lightspan Digital Website, is limited to the applicable timeframe of your subscription.  After the last day of your paid subscription (as applicable), your access will terminate unless your subscription is renewed and payment is timely received.  If your subscription for membership is recurring or auto-renewing, you must provide notice of cancellation at least five business days prior to your billing date for such cancellation to be effective before the next renewal, otherwise cancellation shall be effective at the end of the following subscription period. “Lifetime” memberships refer to the lifetime that the Lightspan Digital Website exists and is owned and operated by Lightspan Digital. Lifetime memberships apply to a single user/entity as described above, and are non-transferable.

Fees and charges for various membership or subscription levels (or durations) shall be as set forth on the Lightspan Digital Website from time to time (or as otherwise quoted to you by Lightspan Digital), and you agree to pay Lightspan Digital in accordance with your chosen level.  If you choose an auto-renewing subscription with recurring billing, you hereby authorize Lightspan Digital to store your payment card information in a PCI compliant manner and to process applicable charges for each billing cycle of your subscription. You shall also be responsible for (a) any taxes applied to the sale of Lightspan Digital products or services, (b) any charge-back fees or other expense incurred by Lightspan Digital arising out of the payment card information you provide to Lightspan Digital, and (c) all connection charges, data charges, or other costs or expenses associated with your connection to the Lightspan Digital Website.  Payments to Lightspan Digital are not refundable, absent manifest error.

If your account is held by a business organization and the user who registered or used your account leaves your organization, please contact us so that we may reissue new login credentials to your organization so as to avoid any violation of the single-entity rules above.  Memberships may not be transferred to another organization.

Lightspan Digital reserves the right to refuse service or membership to any person for any reason.  In addition, we reserve the right to terminate any account or membership for any reason or no reason, provided that if such termination is for no reason, we will refund a pro rated portion of any prepaid subscription fee.
