If your account is terminated, it will be deactivated or deleted, or your access will be disabled, and your Content will be deleted from the Service.

Educadium may modify or discontinue the Service (or any part thereof) at any time with or without notice. If you downgrade your Service level, this may cause a loss of Content. Educadium will not be liable to anyone for any modification, price change, suspension, downgrading or discontinuation of the Service, or any resulting loss of content.

Disclaimers and Limitations

Limitation of Liability

Educadium will not be liable to you or anyone for any direct, indirect, incidental, special, consequential or exemplary damages, including but not limited to damages for lost profits, goodwill, use, data or other intangible losses (regardless of whether Educadium has been advised of the possibility of such damages), however caused, whether based upon contract, negligence, strict liability in tort, warranty or any other legal theory, arising out of or related to: (i) the use or the inability to use the Service; (ii) the cost of procurement of substitute goods or services resulting from any goods, data, information or services obtained, messages received or transactions entered into through or from the Service; (iii) unauthorized access to or alteration of your transmissions, data or Content; (iv) statements or conduct of any third party on the Service; (v) termination or downgrading of your account; or (vi) any other matter relating to the Service.

II. EASYCAMPUS REGISTRATION AND ACCOUNT FOR CAMPUS OWNERS ONLY

BY CLICKING THE “I ACCEPT” BUTTON, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND CONFIRM THE CAMPUS OWNER’S AGREEMENT TO THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS, INCLUDING THOSE ABOVE AND TO THE EDUCADIUM PRIVACY POLICY. PLEASE REVIEW THEM.

BY CLICKING THE “I ACCEPT” BUTTON, YOU STATE THAT YOU HAVE THE AUTHORITY, POWER AND RIGHT TO BIND THE CAMPUS OWNER(S) IDENTIFIED IN YOUR REGISTRATION AND/OR IN ANY SERVICE ORDER, WHICH IS/ARE INCORPORATED HERE BY REFERENCE (“CAMPUS OWNER”).

IF YOU LACK THE AUTHORITY TO BIND THE CAMPUS OWNER, OR IF YOU OR THE CAMPUS OWNER DISAGREE WITH ANY OF THE TERMS, EDUCADIUM IS UNWILLING TO PROVIDE THE SERVICE TO THE CAMPUS OWNER, AND THEREFORE YOU SHOULD CLICK ON THE “CANCEL” BUTTON OR END THE REGISTRATION PROCESS.

Limited License

Educadium grants to the Campus Owner a nonexclusive, nontransferable, limited right and license to use the Service and to receive associated training and support services as specified by Educadium or in the Campus Owner’s registration, subject to these Terms. Any software provided to the Campus Owner by Educadium is licensed solely for the Campus Owner’s internal use in connection with the Service. Unless a particular right is expressly granted herein, it is excluded. The Service may be accessed only by the number of End User accounts indicated in the registration. End User accounts are not transferable. “End User” means a registered administrator, teacher, learner, guest, or other individual using the Service as provided and authorized by the Campus Owner.

Payment

You represent and warrant that any credit information that you supply to us for a purchase is truthful and complete and that charges incurred by you will be honored by your credit card company.

Pricing and payment terms are as set forth in the Campus Owner’s registration or Educadium’s invoice. Educadium is not obligated to facilitate payment or offer services for any transaction for which funds have not been provided by the Campus Owner’s issuing bank. Any chargeback by a credit card company or third party, for any reason, related to you or any End User is a material breach of these Terms. Educadium may charge $50 per incident, in addition to other payment-provider service charges that may be charged to Educadium. We may charge interest of 1.5% monthly (or the maximum amount permitted by law, whichever is less) on any late payments.

Service prices are subject to change upon 30 days notice. Educadium may provide such notice at any time by posting the changes to the Educadium website (www.educadium.com), through the EasyCampus site, by email, or by other means. All fees and prices are exclusive of all taxes, levies, or duties imposed by taxing authorities. The Campus Owner is responsible for payment of all such taxes, levies, or duties. All subscription payments are prepaid and nonrefundable.

CampusPay Service

If you select the CampusPay service for transaction processing, the Campus Owner authorizes Educadium to deduct its service fees before reconciling and remitting payments to the Campus Owner. If Educadium service fees exceed the funds in your account, you authorize Educadium to debit your credit card account or to bill you for any outstanding amounts. You are responsible for payment to Educadium or its agent, supplier or subcontractor for all chargebacks and any related costs incurred. You are responsible for such amounts even if the chargeback was initiated after you received the funds or terminated your CampusPay or EasyCampus service.

Educadium makes best efforts to remit payments within 30 days after reconciling Campus Owner accounts. Additional postal fees and service charges may apply for non-U.S.-based Campus Owners. Educadium is not obligated to remit payments until the Campus Owner balance reaches at least $50.

End Users

The Campus Owner will ensure that its End Users abide by the Educadium Terms of Use, as modified by Educadium from time to time at its discretion. The Campus Owner agrees that Educadium may modify its terms and conditions without notice. The Campus Owner understands and agrees that any loss or damage of any kind that occurs as a result of End User registration/enrollment by the Campus Owner’s administrators or from any Content, message, or material that the Campus Owner or its End Users upload, post, transmit, display or otherwise make available through the Service is solely the Campus Owner’s responsibility. The Campus Owner will be responsible for any and all breaches of this Agreement by any End User.

Educadium Trademarks and Copyright

The Campus Owner and its End Users will not use the Educadium name, trademarks or copyrighted materials on the EasyCampus site or elsewhere without Educadium's prior approval.

EasyCampus Site Policies

The Campus Owner will post, or permit Educadium to post, EasyCampus site policies including but not limited to general terms of use, copyright policies and privacy policies. In any event, the Campus Owner will ensure that its EasyCampus site includes conspicuous statements (whether posted by the Campus Owner or by Educadium) that are substantively identical to these Term of Use and to the Educadium Privacy Policy with respect to the following:

  • Use and disclosure of personally identifiable information
  • Protection of minors
  • Rights to remove objectionable or infringing Content and to suspend or terminate offending End Users
  • Copyright notice and takedown

As a site administrator, the Campus Owner will comply at all times with all policies posted on its EasyCampus site.

Compliance with Laws

In connection with its use of the Service, the Campus Owner will comply with all applicable information, privacy, intellectual property, securities, and other laws, including but not limited to: the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), the Communications Decency Act, and the Copyright Act.

Without limiting the foregoing:

  • The Campus Owner will post a legally compliant privacy policy statement on its EasyCampus site.
  • If personally identifiable information for any End User under the age of 13 is provided or made available to Educadium or to any third party, the Campus Owner will first obtain all requisite consents and authorizations or otherwise obtain the authority to provide such information to Educadium.
  • If any information covered by FERPA is provided or made available to Educadium or to any third party, the Campus Owner will first give all applicable notices, obtain all applicable consents, and honor all effective objections thereto.

The Campus Owner represents and warrants that the Content and materials it or its End Users posts on the Service, and all customer activities in relation thereto, comply and will comply with all applicable laws.

Export

The Campus Owner acknowledges that the Service may include technology and software that is subject to U.S. customs and export control laws and regulations and may also be subject to the customs and export laws and regulations of the country in which the Service is rendered and/or received. The Campus Owner will abide by those laws and regulations. The Campus Owner further represents that any software provided by The Campus Owner and used as part of the Service contains no encryption or, to the extent that it contains encryption, such software is approved for export without a license.

Indemnification

The Campus Owner will indemnify, defend and hold harmless Educadium and its subsidiaries, affiliates, directors, officers, agents, contractors, partners, and employees from and against any claim arising from, or in any way related to, use by the Campus Owner or its End Users of the Service (including but not limited to Educadium.com, EasyCampusLearn.com, EasyCampus, Professional Services, and CampusPay) or any other Educadium service, including any liability or expense arising from all claims, losses, damages (actual and consequential), suits, judgments, litigation costs and attorneys’ fees, of every kind and nature. The foregoing indemnification obligation will not apply to the extent that the claim is based on an allegation that Educadium software infringes an intellectual property right.

Term and Termination

The Campus Owner’s account will commence when the Campus Owner agrees to these Terms by clicking the “I Accept” button, and will continue for the period specified in the Campus Owner’s registration unless earlier terminated. Termination does not entitle Campus Owner to any refund or reduction of fees already paid by or due from Campus Owner. If the Campus Owner requests a pro-rata refund as a remedy hereunder, then such request will be an election of remedies and the sole remedy available to the Campus Owner with respect to any dispute with Educadium. If the Campus Owner’s account terminates for any reason, all Services to all End Users will terminate as well.

III. PROFESSIONAL SERVICES

The Campus Owner agrees that all of these Terms of Use (including those above) apply to any and all consulting services, training, add-ons, courseware and related products that the Campus Owner purchases from Educadium. The consulting services to be delivered, and their pricing, will be described on a price sheet or other Educadium Professional Services sales document delivered to the Campus Owner (“Service Description”). In the event of a conflict between these Terms and any Service Description, these Terms will control. All consulting service orders are subject to acceptance by Educadium.

Limited Warranty

Educadium warrants that any custom/professional services, including installation and support for EasyCampus Add-Ons, (“Professional Services”), when used for their intended use for education and training in accordance with these Terms of Use, will conform to the specifications and standards set forth in the written custom proposal or Educadium website (the “Specifications”) at the time of signature or purchase.

After Educadium sends written notice of project completion to the Campus Owner, the Campus Owner shall have 60 days (“Acceptance Period”) to confirm whether the Professional Services were performed substantially in accordance with the Specifications.  If the Campus Owner determines that the Services were not performed substantially in accordance with the Specifications, including a perceived bug or software conflict with the custom/professional services, the Campus Owner must notify Educadium of the specific discrepancies. Unless the Campus Owner of record notifies Educadium in writing of specific discrepancies during the Acceptance Period, the Services shall be deemed to be accepted.

After written notification of specific discrepencies by the Campus Owner, the Campus Owner and Educadium agree to work together for up to 60 days (“Cure Period”) to resolve the identified discrepancies. If the discrepancies are not resolved within the 60–day period, the Campus Owner may remove the custom/professional services and receive a 50% refund of fees paid to Educadium as set forth in the written custom proposal or on the Educadium website.

Without limitation, if Educadium determines in its sole discretion that that the Services were changed or compromised due to irreversible or nonstandard changes or software additions carried out by the Campus Owner or representatives of the Campus Owner, or if the Campus Owner cancels the Campus subscription for any reason before the end of the 60-day Cure Period, or if there is a violation of Educadium's Terms of Use, Educadium shall not be bound by this limited warranty.

IV. MISCELLANEOUS

Limitation Period

Neither Educadium nor the Campus Owner nor its End Users may institute any action in any form arising from the Service or this Agreement more than two (2) years after the cause of action has arisen.

Law and Venue

These Terms will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Oregon, without giving effect to its conflict of laws rules. Any claim, legal proceeding or litigation arising in connection with the Service must be brought in Washington County, Oregon, or in the U.S. District Court for the District of Oregon, and you consent to the jurisdiction and venue of such courts.

Entire Agreement

These Terms, together with any documents incorporated by reference, constitute the entire agreement between you and Educadium and govern your use of the Service. These terms supersede any prior agreements between you and Educadium, including but not limited to any prior versions of the Terms. The Terms supersede all prior communications, representations, understandings, negotiations and discussions, written or oral, between you and Educadium regarding the subject of the Terms.

No Waiver

Educadium’s failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of the Terms will not constitute a waiver of that or any other right or provision. Neither the course of conduct between the parties nor any trade practice shall act to modify any provision of the Terms.

No Assignment

You may not sell, assign or otherwise transfer any of your rights or obligations under these Terms to anyone. Any assignment or delegation in violation of these Terms will be void.

Severability

If any provision in these Terms is invalid or unenforceable, the remaining provisions will continue in full force and effect.
