1.2. Services: School Deets provides a multilingual communication platform for the adult members of a school community to assist with school to home non-essential communication, including School Deets’ email communication, Site, and App, which are collectively defined as the “Service” or the “Services.” The Services are designed to facilitate conversations, reduce language barriers, and otherwise improve communication among Users. The multilingual capabilities allow some languages to be machine translated powered by Google Translate and disseminated to Users. The Services act as a central hub where Users can keep up to date on school happenings and access other information. The Services permit Users to access and use text, images, photos, audio, video, location data, and all other forms of data or communication, as well as designs, graphics, information, logos, software, audio files and computer code, and other content on a variety of topics related to the school community, including school to home notices (“Content”). Content is included as part of the “Services” for purposes of this Agreement.

Modification: School Deets may, at any time, modify or discontinue all or part of the Services; change, modify or waive fees required to use the Services; or offer opportunities to some or all Users. School Deets also reserves the right, at any time, to modify this Agreement. School Deets will inform you of the presence of any changes to this Agreement by posting those changes on the Services or by providing you with notice through the Services. Any modifications will be effective immediately upon posting on the Services or delivery of such notice through the Services. You will be deemed to have agreed to any and all modifications through your continued use of the Services.
1.5. Types of Users/Definition of Terms:
· Sub_Admin: a teacher or non-teacher employee of a School or a volunteer authorized to use the Services by the School to create new Users and grant rights to Users to send User Content (“Sub-Admin”).

· “School Community” is defined as the adult members associated with a School to include paid staff, parents, volunteers, and school community partners.
1.6. No Agent Relationship: The Services do not create an agency relationship with Users or any other form of relationship that would bind or make School Deets liable for the actions of its Users.
1.7. Eligibility: The Services are intended for legal use by individuals 13 years of age and older. You may not use the Services in any manner if you are under the age of 13 and any registration by anyone under 13 is void. If you are 13 or older but younger than 18, then you may access and use the Services only if your parent or guardian accepts this Agreement on your behalf. If you are a parent or guardian agreeing to this Agreement for the benefit of an individual age 13 or older but under 18, then you agree that you will be solely responsible for all access to and use of the Services.
1.8. Account Setup: You are permitted to access portions of the Services without establishing a user account on the Services, provided that you have agreed to this Agreement. However, access to and use of certain portions of the Services may require that you establish a user account (an “Account”) and an associated profile linked to a type of User (a “Profile”). Approval of your request to establish an Account will be at the sole discretion of School Deets. If you are a Sub-Admin (as defined below), you may authorize designated individuals to use and access the Services through your Account (you and each such individual, as applicable, a “User” of your Account). If an Account is only associated with you, then you may use and access the Services through your Account as the sole User of the Account. Each user identification and password for your Account (each, “Account ID”) is personal in nature and may be used only by you or, as applicable, the User to whom the Account ID is issued.
1.10. Account Authority: If an Account is associated with multiple Users, then the Sub-Admin who establishes your Account (the “Account Authority”) will have control over your Account. If an Account is only associated with you, then you will be the Account Authority for your Account, unless you designate a different Sub-Admin as Account Authority as specified below. School Deets may deem the Account Authority to have full authority for all decisions relating to your Account, including: (a) addition or removal of Users; (b) permissions to access your Account; (c) disputes regarding your Account; (d) notices and other communications relating to your Account; and (e) any other decisions that may be required regarding your Account. There must always be one and only one Account Authority for each Account. The initial Account Authority must be designated in the initial request to establish an Account.

The Account Authority may be changed: (i) by an email sent to School Deets from the registered email address of the current Account Authority; (ii) by written notice provided to School Deets; or (iii) as separately directed and acknowledged by School Deets. It is your responsibility to properly designate a new Account Authority whenever appropriate. In the event of a dispute where multiple persons claim to be the rightful Account Authority, School Deets reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to: (1) suspend all access to your Account until an Account Authority is properly designated to School Deets’ sole satisfaction; or (2) terminate your Account and delete your Registration Information

By submitting a Paid Order, you agree to be bound by the Terms of Sale with respect to that Paid Order.

If you wish to purchase any Paid Order, you will be asked to supply certain information relevant to your purchase including, without limitation, your credit card number, your credit card verification code, the expiration date of your credit card, and your billing address (collectively, “Payment Information“), which may become part of your Registration Information.

If the renewal charge fails, you will lose access to your Paid Order. You can cancel your Paid Order within the billing settings in your Account. If you cancel your Paid Order, you will still be able to use the Services for the remaining duration of any active subscription period. All one-time and subscription payments are non-refundable.
