Paying for The Service

If we discover that more than one ‘free trial’ has been requested and activated, we reserve the right to charge you for all use of the Services made after the first ‘free trial’ period. We may withdraw any ‘free trial’ or ‘demo trial’ services at any time without notice.
Subscription fees: Upon the conclusion of your ‘free trial’ or ‘demo trial’ period, the Services will be available to you only upon (a) your executing an Order Form, which Order Form will set out the pricing terms, and (b) remitting to Curricula payment of the subscription fee, which is payable annually in advance by the Customer, unless otherwise provided on your Order Form.
How payments are made: We use a third party tool to manage Customer subscription transactions via credit/debit card and ACH payments. We will invoice you by agreement, payment being required before you will have complete access to use the Services. You agree to keep your payment and billing information current at all times within your account profile.
Automatic renewal: You acknowledge and agree that Curricula will automatically renew the Customer’s subscription for additional one-year periods upon expiration of the previous annual subscription term and charge your payment card and/or invoice you on an annual basis (as applicable), until your Curricula Account is closed. If you provide to us credit card or debit card information, you authorize Curricula to charge the then-current subscription fee on a recurring, annual basis. You may withdraw this consent at any time by contacting us at [email protected]
Non-payment: We shall be under no obligation to provide the Services to Customer if the subscription fee is not paid to us on time. The Customer must ensure that we have complete and accurate billing and contact information throughout the subscription period, including the full name of the Customer, its business address, and a billing contact email address. If subscription fees become overdue, interest shall accrue thereon at the rate of one and one-half percent (1.5%) per month or the maximum amount permitted by applicable law, whichever is less, commencing on the date payment was due and accruing until the date payment is received by Curricula. In addition, we reserve the right to suspend your access to the Services until the balance is paid and/or we may close your Curricula Account without notice. Additional claims for payment default remain reserved.
Taxes: Unless otherwise stated, Curricula’s fees do not include any taxes, levies, duties or similar governmental assessments of any nature, including, but not limited to, value-added, sales and use, or withholding taxes, assessable by any local, state, provincial, federal or foreign jurisdiction (collectively, “Taxes”). Customer is responsible for paying all Taxes associated with its purchase of Curricula’s Services. If Curricula has the legal obligation to pay or collect Taxes for which the Customer is responsible, the appropriate amount shall be invoiced to and paid by the Customer, unless the Customer provides Curricula with a valid tax exemption certificate from the appropriate taxing authority.
Closing a Curricula account
Cancellation by you: You may request to close your Curricula Account at any time by contacting [email protected] No further subscription fees will be billed and no refund will be made of any subscription fees already billed and paid except at our discretion.

Suspension and closure by us in the event of a problem: If you, or any other user of your Curricula Account, fails to abide by these Terms and Conditions, or if the subscription fees are not paid on time, we reserve the right to suspend your access to the Services and/or cancel your Curricula Account. If we withdraw access to the Services because these Terms and Conditions have been breached, no refund will be payable by us.
Non-fault closure by us: In addition to our other rights under these Terms and Conditions, we also reserve the right to close any Curricula Account (including during any ‘free trial’ or ‘demo trial’ period) for any reason by giving thirty (30) days’ notice and refunding any unused subscription fees on a pro rata basis.
