Terms of Service
- Acceptance of Terms
Hiperware Labs, Inc. (hereafter called “HLI”) provides its service to you, subject to the following Terms of Service (“TOS”), which may be updated by us from time to time without notice to you. When using particular HLI services, you and HLI shall be subject to any posted guidelines or rules applicable to such services which may be posted from time to time. All such guidelines or rules are hereby incorporated by reference into the TOS.
- Descripton of Service
HLI provides a service (“CLASSHERO”), provided in the form of the ClassHero app, to help teachers personalize math assignments in their classrooms effectively and efficiently. The service helps children practice math, helping them reinforce skills that teachers have taught earlier in their classrooms. The service also helps Parents or Legal Guardians encourage math practice at home on personal devices by partnering with Teachers to set up practice goals and criteria. Teachers have the option of connecting math practice goals to “Badges” – cards designed to establish a sense of achievement around meeting practice goals. Badges may have to be purchased separately unless offered as a package in conjunction with the Service as part of the subscription option. Parents or legal guardians have the option of connecting math practice goals to Rewards of the respective Parent’s or Legal guardian’s choosing. Unless explicitly stated otherwise, any new features that augment or enhance the current Service, including the release of new HLI apps, online sites or other properties, shall be subject to the TOS. You understand and agree that the Service is provided “as-is” and that HLI assumes no responsibility for the timeliness, deletion, misdelivery or failure to store any user communications or personalization settings.
In order to use the Service, you must obtain access to the Internet, either directly or through devices that access web-based content, and pay any service fees associated with such access. In addition, you must provide all equipment necessary to make such connection to the Internet, including a computer and modem or other access device.
If a child under the age of 13 will be using the Website or Services, you (“User”) are the teacher or parent or legal guardian of that child (“Child”). You also certify that you are legally permitted to use and access the Services and take full responsibility for the selection and use of and access to the Service. This Agreement is void where prohibited by law, and the right to access the Service is revoked in such jurisdictions.
You shall be responsible for obtaining and maintaining any equipment or ancillary services needed to connect to, access, or otherwise use the Services, including, without limitation, modems, hardware, software, and long distance or local telephone service. You shall be responsible for ensuring that such equipment or ancillary services are compatible with the Services.
HLI may assist Users by providing a selection of rewards that are popular in the age-category of their Child. However, Users are responsible for the screening of rewards that they deem appropriate for their Child. HLI does not make any claims towards or bear any responsibility for any of these rewards or for their shipping or fulfillment. All shipping, fulfillment, customer support, complaints, feedback, etc pertaining to rewards shall be handled between the User and the e-commerce company selling the rewards.
- Your Registration Obligations
In consideration of your use of the Service, you agree to: (a) provide true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself as prompted by the Service’s registration process (such information being the “Registered Information”) and (b) maintain and promptly update the Registered Information to keep it true, accurate, current and complete. If you provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, or HLI has reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, HLI has the right to suspend or terminate your account and refuse any and all current or future use of the Service (or any portion thereof).
- Subscription and Billing
If you start a paid CLASSHERO subscription, you are expressly agreeing that we are authorized to charge you the subscription fee associated with the type of subscription (monthly or yearly) you chose. You agree that we are authorized to charge you the subscription fee at the then-current rate through your iTunes / Amazon / Google account or via credit card payment or such other method that may be established between you and the Company representative. When available through your iTunes / Amazon / Google Play, You can turn off auto-renew at any time from the respective account settings. Subscription automatically renews unless auto-renew is turned off at least 24-hours before the end of the current period. Your account will be charged for renewal within 24-hours prior to the end of the current period, and identify the cost of the renewal. You may manage subscriptions and you may turn off auto-renewal by going to the User’s Account Settings after purchase. No cancellation of the current subscription is allowed during active subscription period. Any unused portion of a free trial period, if offered, will be forfeited when the User purchases a subscription to that publication.
- Ongoing Subscription
Your HLI subscription will continue in effect unless and until you cancel your subscription or we terminate it. You must cancel your subscription before it renews each billing period in order to avoid billing of the next subscription fee. Subscription fees are fully earned upon payment.
You may cancel your HLI subscription at any time, and cancellation will be effective immediately. You will continue to have access to the program until the current billing period ends. We do not provide refunds or credits for any partially used subscription periods. To cancel your subscription, you may turn off auto-renewal by going to the User’s Account Settings after purchase.
- Payment for Rewards
Once a Child has met a learning goal, HLI informs Users via email so that Users may then continue to purchase the reward selected by their Child. Payment of rewards is not handled by the Service and the price of rewards (and related taxes and shipping costs) are not part of and are unrelated to the subscription fees paid by the user for the use of the Service.
