Terms and Conditions of Use:
Last updated: January 30, 2018
By signing up for or using the Service, you agree to the following terms:
If you do not have a BrainTap membership, you will need to establish an account with BrainTapTech.com to use the Service. Your payment methods on file with your BrainTapTech.com account will be used for your BrainTap Technologies account and the BrainTap Pro mobile application.
As part of our Service, we may offer membership plans and may change them and their features from time to time. If you sign up for a membership/program/subscription plan, you agree to the terms, conditions and limitations associated with them that are posted on our websites or applications.
Promotional and Membership/Program/Subscription Content
We may make content available to you from time to time through the Service for which a purchase is not required. You will have access to this content only for so long as we make it available generally or, where it is provided as a benefit of a membership plan, for so long as you remain an active member of your plan in good standing. We may also remove this content from your account, devices and applications, or otherwise restrict your ability to access it.
We may add or remove purchasable, promotional and membership content (collectively, “Content”) from our catalog, membership plans and our Service at any time and make no guarantee as to the availability of specific Content in any membership plan or as to any minimum amount of Content in any membership plan. Some of our Content may be offered in limited territories or to limited membership levels. We may use geo-filtering technology to restrict access outside of those territories.
Fees and Renewal
Fees for purchased program content, membership plans, subscriptions, and other services will be stated at the time of your purchase or sign-up, as applicable, and provided in our help pages. The fees for membership plans may vary. Fees may be subject to tax and are non-refundable unless otherwise outlined herein. We only accept credit card and (most) debit cards for payment of membership fees. Please do not sign up for a program with a “check” or “ATM” card.
If your membership plan or subscription involves a recurring payment of a fee, unless you notify us before a charge that you want to cancel or do not want to automatically renew your membership or subscription, you understand it will automatically continue each month, and you authorize us (without notice to you, unless required by applicable law) to collect the then-applicable fees and any taxes using any credit card we have on record for you.
If all credit cards we have on file for you are declined for payment of your membership or subscription fees, we may cancel your membership or subscription, as applicable, unless you provide us with a new credit card. If you provide us with a new credit card and are successfully charged before your membership or subscription is cancelled, your new membership or subscription period will be based on the original renewal date and not the date of the successful charge.
You may cancel your membership/program/subscription by visiting your account dashboard page provided on BrainTapTech.com, clicking the “Manage Your Subscriptions” tab, and selecting “CANCEL” under the membership/program/subscription you want to cancel, or by contacting our Customer Service team. If you cancel your membership/program/subscription, you will not receive a refund of any fees already paid. When you cancel a subscription with us, you will continue to receive your subscription benefits until the end of the current billing period. Cancellation does not terminate your ability to access BrainTapTech.com and purchased programs or products in the future.
We reserve the right to accept or refuse membership or to restrict use of the Service in our discretion. You may not transfer or assign your membership or any Service benefits. You may not use the Service for any commercial purposes without a written license to do so. If you would like to use any of the Services in a business setting, please contact us for information. We may take actions we deem reasonably necessary to prevent fraud and abuse, including placing restrictions on the amount of content or other services that can be accessed from the Service at any one time.
All content is protected by Federal copyright law. You may not (i) transfer, copy, share, or display Content, except as permitted in this Agreement; (ii) sell, rent, lease, distribute, or broadcast any Content; (iii) remove any proprietary notices or labels on Content; (iv) attempt to disable, bypass, modify, defeat, or otherwise circumvent any digital rights management or other protection system applied to Content or used as part of the Service; or (v) use the Service or Content for any commercial or illegal purpose.
Promotional Trial Memberships
We sometimes offer certain customers various trial or other promotional memberships, which are subject to the Terms except as otherwise stated in the promotional offers. We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to determine your eligibility. Trial members may, at any time (through your “My Account”), choose not to continue paid memberships/subscriptions by cancelling prior to the end of the trial period. If a trial offer or a promotion requires you to have a valid payment instrument on file, such as a credit card or other permitted payment method, we may validate that payment method, including by requesting a temporary authorization from the financial institution issuing your payment instrument. If we determine that your payment instrument is invalid, without limiting any of our other rights, we may revoke any benefits, Credits or Content you may have received as part of the offer.
We may, in our discretion, change the Terms and all elements of them and any aspect of the Service without notice to you. If any change to the Terms is found invalid, void, or for any reason unenforceable, that change is sever-able and does not affect the validity and enforce-ability of any remaining changes and the remainder of the Terms. Your continued use of the Service after we change the Terms constitutes your acceptance of the changes. If you do not agree to any changes, you must not use the Service and must cancel your membership.
Termination by Us
Our business may change over time and we reserve the right to cancel the Service and any membership plan in whole or in part, and to terminate your membership and use of the Service at our discretion without notice. If we do so, we will give you a prorated refund based on the number of days remaining in your membership unless we terminate your membership for conduct that we determine, in our discretion, violates the Terms, violates any applicable law, involves fraud or misuse of the Service, or is harmful to our interests or another user. Our failure to insist upon or enforce your strict compliance with the Terms will not constitute a waiver of any of our rights.
