1. Prices and Payment Terms.
(a) All prices posted on the Websites are subject to change without notice. The price charged for a particular program will be the price in effect at the time the order is placed and will be set out in your order confirmation email. Posted prices include applicable taxes and charges for shipping and handling of any equipment or materials included in the particular program. We strive to display accurate price information, however we may, on occasion, make inadvertent typographical errors, inaccuracies or omissions related to pricing and availability. We reserve the right to correct any errors, inaccuracies or omissions at any time and to cancel any orders arising from such occurrences.
(b) Terms of payment are within our sole discretion and payment must be received by us before our acceptance of an order. All purchases must be made with a valid credit card. You represent and warrant that (i) the credit card information you supply to us is true, correct and complete, (ii) you are duly authorized to use such credit card for the purchase, (iii) charges incurred by you will be honored by your credit card company, and (iv) you will pay charges incurred by you at the posted prices, regardless of the amount quoted on the applicable Website at the time of your order.
(c) If the payment method cannot be verified, is invalid or is otherwise not acceptable, your Service may be suspended or canceled. You must resolve any problem we encounter in relation to the payment method you select in order to proceed with your use of the Service.
2. Refund Policies.
- Assessments: The purchase price for assessments is non-refundable.
- One-Time Program Purchases: One-time program purchases are non-cancelable and non-refundable. If the Company chooses to allow payment for a one-time program over time in monthly installments, you are responsible for paying the purchase price in full, whether or not you or your minor child choses to discontinue your use of the particular program before completion of the program.
- Training Programs: The enrollment fee (“Training Enrollment Fee”) for training programs is non-refundable.
- Month-to-Month Training Fee: The Company does not offer refunds of payments made for month-to-month trainings. For those parents and legal guardians who elect to enroll in month-to-month trainings, such trainings begin one month after payment of the Training Enrollment Fee, and will automatically renew for additional months until you cancel or the monthly trainings are suspended or discontinued by the Company. We bill for monthly trainings at the beginning of each monthly renewal term. If you wish to cancel month-to-month trainings, you must provide us notice of cancellation by email to email@example.com (please write “TERMINATION OF MONTHLY TRAININGS” in the subject line) at least 14 days before your monthly renewal date to avoid being billed for the subsequent month. You will have continued access to monthly trainings until the end of the month in which you cancel. The Company does not provide pro-rata refunds for unused days in the month of termination.
3. Interactive Metronome® Equipment.
Certain Services may include access to programs offered by Interactive Metronome® (an unaffiliated third party) that involve hardware provided by Interactive Metronome, including a “main station” that connects to a user’s computer, triggering devices and headphones (“Interactive Metronome Equipment”). When a user purchases a program that includes services provided by Interactive Metronome, Interactive Metronome will ship the Interactive Metronome Equipment directly to the Company so that the Company can program the main station depending on the needs of the particular child. When the Company has completed programming the main station, we will ship the Interactive Metronome Equipment to the customer.
