These Terms of Use govern your use of our service. These Subscriber TERMS OF USE (“Terms of Use” or “Terms”) constitute a binding contract between you (“Subscriber” or “Customer” or “You”) and Shaw Academy an Irish corporation (“Company” or “We” or “Us”), regarding the terms under which the Company will provide Subscriber with access to The Services.

To the extent permitted by law, these Terms of Use are intended to supersede any provisions of applicable law, which might otherwise limit their enforceability or effect, because they were entered into electronically. Please print a copy of these Terms of Use for future reference.

2. General

The Services enable students ("Students") to connect to live and recorded instruction, tutoring, and other learning services (the "Courses"). The Services include, without limitation, facilitating and delivering Courses and supporting materials, and taking feedback from Users.

From time to time, We may update these Terms to clarify our practices or to reflect new or different practices, such as when we add new features, and Shaw Academy reserves the right in its sole discretion to modify and/or make changes to these Terms of Use at any time. If We make any material change to these Terms of Use, We will notify You using prominent means such as by email notice sent to the email address specified in Your Account or by posting a notice in your online Members Area. Modifications will become effective on the day they are posted unless stated otherwise.

Your continued use of The Service after changes become effective shall mean that You accept those changes. You should visit The Services regularly to ensure You are aware of the latest version of the Terms, as any revised Terms shall supersede all previous Terms.

Shaw Academy may modify The Services or discontinue their availability at any time.

You are solely responsible for all service, telephony, data charges and/or other fees and costs associated with your access to and use of the Services, as well as for obtaining and maintaining all telephone, computer hardware, and other equipment required for such access and use.

If You elect to access or use Our Services that involve payment of a fee, then You agree to pay, and will be responsible for payment of, that fee and all taxes associated with such access or use. If You provide credit card information to pay for such fees then You hereby represent and warrant that You are authorized to supply such information and hereby authorize Shaw Academy to charge your credit card on a regular basis to pay the fees as they are due.

If your payment method fails or your Account is past due, then We may collect fees owed using other collection mechanisms. This may include charging other payment methods on file with Us and/or retaining collection agencies and legal counsel. We may also block Your access to any of The Services pending resolution of any amounts due by You to Shaw Academy.

All of your use, access and other activities relating to The Services must be in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations, including, without limitations, laws relating to copyright and other intellectual property use, and to privacy and personal identity.

You must agree to abide by all local rules regarding online conduct and acceptable content.

3. Membership

Your Shaw Academy membership will continue month-to-month until terminated. Unless you cancel your membership before your monthly renewal date, you authorize us to charge your next month's membership fee to your Payment Method (see "Cancellation 5.3" below). To use the Shaw Academy service you must have Internet access and a compatible device, and you must provide us with a current, valid, accepted method of payment, which you may update from time to time ("Payment Method").

4. Free Trials

  1. Your Shaw Academy membership may start with a free trial. The free trial period of your membership lasts for 30 days, unless otherwise specified, from the start of the lesson you are enrolled in, or as otherwise specified during sign-up and is intended to allow new members and certain former members to try the service. You will be notified during sign-up whether you are eligible for a free trial.

  2. We will bill any Payment Method provided by You for your monthly membership fee at the end of the free trial period unless you cancel your membership prior to the end of the free trial period. You will not receive a notice from us that your paid membership has begun.

5. Billing

  1. Billing Cycle. The membership fee for our service will be billed on a monthly basis to your Payment Method on the calendar day corresponding to the commencement of your paid membership. In some cases, the timing of your billing may change, for example if your Payment Method has not successfully settled or if your paying membership began on a day not contained in a given month.

  2. Payment Methods. If a payment is not successfully settled, due to expiration, insufficient funds, or otherwise, and you do not change your Payment Method or cancel your account, we may suspend your access to the service until we have obtained a valid Payment Method. You authorize us to continue billing the Payment Method, as it may be updated and you remain responsible for any uncollected amounts. This may result in a change to your payment billing dates. For certain Payment Methods, the issuer of your Payment Method may charge you a foreign transaction fee or other charges. Check with your Payment Method service provider for details.

  3. Cancellation. You can cancel your Shaw Academy membership at any time, and you will continue to have access to the Shaw Academy service through the end of your monthly billing period. We do not provide refunds or credits for any partial-month membership periods or unwatched lessons or Courses. To cancel, go to the "My Account" page and follow the instructions for cancellation. If you cancel your membership, your account will automatically close at the end of your current billing period. To see when your account will close, click on the "My Account" page. If you signed up to Shaw Academy using your account with a third party as a Payment Method and wish to cancel your Shaw Academy membership at any time, including during your free trial, you may need to do so through such third party, for example by visiting your account with the applicable third party and turning off auto-renew, or unsubscribing from, the Shaw Academy service through that third party.

  4. Changes to the Price and Service Plans. We may change our service plans and the price of our service from time to time; however, any price changes or changes to our service plans will apply to you no earlier than 30 days following email notice to you.
