We consider our membership model the best way to offer valuable educational content to our users. We need rules to keep our platform and services safe for you, us, and our member community. These terms apply to all your activities on our website, our applications, and other related services (“Services”).

The subscription fee will be listed at the time of your purchase in the memberships tab of the platform. We may also be required to add taxes to your subscription fee. Payments are non-refundable and there are no refunds or credits for partially used periods, unless otherwise required by applicable law.
To subscribe to a Subscription Plan, you must provide a payment method. By subscribing to a Subscription Plan and providing your billing information during checkout, you grant us and our payment service providers the right to process payment for the then-applicable fees via the payment method we have on record for you.
At the end of each subscription term, we will automatically renew your subscription for the same length of term and process your payment method for payment of the then-applicable fees.
In the event that we update your payment method using information provided by our payment service providers, you authorise us to continue to charge the then-applicable fees to your updated payment method.
If we are unable to process payment through the payment method we have on file for you, or if you file a chargeback disputing charges made to your payment method and the chargeback is granted, we may suspend or terminate your subscription.
We reserve the right to change our Subscription Plans or adjust pricing for our Services at our sole discretion. Any price changes or changes to your subscription will take effect following notice to you, except as otherwise required by applicable law.
