Important Information about Children
The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”) (https://www.ftc.gov/tips-advice/business-center/guidance/complying-coppa-frequently-asked-questions) requires that online service providers obtain parental (or legal guardian) consent before they collect personally identifiable information online from children who are under 13. Therefore, we only collect personal information through the Services from a child under 13 where that parent or guardian (or a student’s school, district, and/or teacher has agreed to obtain parental/guardian consent for that child) to use the Services and disclose personal information to us, for the use and benefit of the learning environment. If you are a child or student under 13, please do not send any personal information about yourself to us if your parent, guardian, school, district, and/or teacher has provided this prior consent to us, and please do not send any personal information other than what we request from you in connection with the Services. If we learn we have collected personal information from a child or student under 13 without parental/guardian consent being obtained or if we learn a child under 13 has provided us personal information beyond what we request from him or her for the Services, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that a child under 13 may have provided us personal information in violation of this paragraph, please contact us at email@example.com.
Parents and legal guardians, if your child is under the age of 13, consent may need to be given in order for such child to use certain features of the Services. You are responsible for understanding how the Services you use, subscribe to, make available, and/or distribute on behalf of yourself or other users may collect and use information of users of Easel.ly’s Services. If you are the parent or legal guardian of a child who has created an account with us and you did not receive an email seeking your consent, you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to have that child’s account deleted.

Free Trial Options
Easel.ly offers or may offer a range of subscription plans for its Services, which may be selected as you set up an account, access or use the Services, or enter into a Subscription Agreement with us. Certain Services may begin with a free trial period, and/or a ramping up period where you are able to explore the scope of Services offered under our Subscription Agreements without charge (“Free Trial”). Not all Services or functionality of such Services may be available during a Free Trial period. We reserve the right to determine if you are eligible for a Free Trial and to discontinue any Free Trial without notice for any or no reason. We also reserve the right to modify, cancel, and or limit a Free Trial without notice at any time.
Each Free Trial and/or subscription term for Services will begin on the Start Date as set forth in the Subscription Agreement or as otherwise set by Easel.ly (or at the end of your Free Trial) and will continue for the term length as set forth in the Subscription Agreement. Your subscription will automatically renew unless you or we terminate pursuant to these Terms. The renewal terms will be for additional terms equal to the expiring subscription term and on or in connection with the current Terms and the provisions of your Subscription Agreement, subject to the renewal pricing provided for in your Subscription Agreement or, if not specified in your Subscription Agreement, on our standard pricing as may be available through our Site. You are responsible for all fees related to your initial term as well as any renewal terms.
If you wish to upgrade your subscription level or certain Services to which you subscribe, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or via your account representative. Upgrading your subscription may require a new Subscription Agreement to be executed. Any discounts applied to a previous subscription or an initial term may not apply to a renewed subscription, including to any automatic renewals.
You are solely responsible for properly closing any account or terminating any Subscription Agreement you may have with us if you no longer desire to pay for or use the Services. Written notice of termination by either party must be sent forty-eight (48) hours prior to your renewal date, or pursuant to the terms of any account or Subscription Agreement, and such termination becomes effective at the end of the then-current subscription term. Termination is not available during any designated free trial period. To close your account or terminate your Subscription Agreement, please email us at email@example.com or as otherwise indicated by Easel.ly from time to time. Suspension, amendment, or termination does not relieve your obligation to pay amounts due and owing to Easel.ly.
If you do not amend your subscription to another subscription, upon terminating your Subscription Agreement or any account you have with us you will immediately lose all access to the Services and any data or information stored within your account or associated with the cancelled Subscription Agreement.
If you upgrade or downgrade your Subscription Agreement, your credit card or other payment provider as indicated in your account information may be immediately charged for the new subscription fees as stated in your new Subscription Agreement. Any downgrading of your subscription becomes effective at the end of your then-current subscription term, and may cause the loss of account content, features, or capacity. Easel.ly disclaims liability for any such loss.
Upon suspension or termination for any reason, Easel.ly will cease providing the suspended or terminated Services; Easel.ly shall delete or confirm you have deleted all copies of any relevant Easel.ly software or data from your web page(s) or computers; any outstanding balance you owe to Easel.ly will become immediately due and payable and any collection expenses incurred will be included in the amount owed; you will not be entitled to any refunds of any subscription fees or any other fees, unless expressly agreed by Easel.ly; and all of your historical report data will no longer be available to you through Easel.ly. Refunds are not granted after seven (7) days after the start of your Subscription Agreement, or at any time if any coupon or discount has been applied or if you have participated in the Free Trial option. You understand and acknowledge that, unless and until all Easel.ly software and data is deleted from your web page, computers, or account, the Services may continue to track data on an automated basis. Upon termination, you agree to discontinue all use of the Services, and to delete any Confidential Information (as defined herein) in your systems within one hundred eighty (180) days after the effective date of termination.
Easel.ly may terminate or suspend your access to use the Site and/or the Services, and to block or prevent your future access to and use of the Site and/or the Services, without prior notice or liability, if you breach this Agreement, or for any other reason.
Fees and Payments
Payment and pricing terms for the Services are as specified in the Subscription Agreement utilized to order Service subscriptions or as otherwise set forth by us from time to time. By entering into a Subscription Agreement you agree to pay Easel.ly all subscription fees indicated for the Services, any other fees for additional services you may purchase, and any applicable taxes in connection with your access to or use of such. All fees charged by Easel.ly are exclusive of all taxes, levies, or duties imposed by taxing authorities, and you shall be responsible for payment of all such taxes, levies, or duties excluding taxes based solely on Easel.ly’s income. For any paid Services, including Subscription Agreements or other services or features available only to certain accounts, after seven (7) days, unless otherwise agreed by both parties and memorialized in your Subscription Agreement or other relevant agreement, all sales are final, all invoices due net thirty (30) upon receipt, and consistent with other provisions in the Terms, Easel.ly is not obligated to issue refunds, including for prepaid fees.
Unless otherwise agreed by both parties and memorialized in your Subscription Agreement, all payments due will be charged on the day you sign up for Services or a subscription for such and will cover access to or use of those Services for a period as indicated or the term for which you subscribed. Payments are made for the upcoming billing cycle and are immediately due upon the first day of such. You will be billed for the Services, as applicable, until you properly terminate your subscription (and corresponding account, if any) or Easel.ly terminates your Subscription Agreement and/or account. Your termination may not take effect until completion of the billing cycle for the then-current term.
We will bill the fees due under your Subscription Agreement or for any other agreed-to services to the credit card or other payment option you provide to us or select during registration (or to a different credit card or payment option if you change your payment information). You acknowledge that the amount billed for each renewal term may vary due to promotional offers, changes in the subscription or Services, changes to our standard pricing, and changes in applicable taxes, and you authorize us to bill you the corresponding amounts.
You also authorize your credit card issuer, bank, or payment service to pay any amounts described herein and associated with your account and authorize us (or a billing agent acting on our behalf) to continue charging all such amounts to your credit card account, bank account, or payment service account until you or we terminate your Subscription Agreement as provided herein or these amounts are paid in full, whichever is later.
You represent and warrant that you are authorized to use such credit card, bank, or payment service for the purpose of purchasing such Services from us. You further authorize us to store your credit card, bank, and/or payment service information. You must of course provide us with current, complete, and accurate billing, credit card, and Registration Data information. At the beginning of each billing cycle Easel.ly will make attempts to charge the applicable fee to the credit card, bank, or payment service on record, and if we are unable to process the payment due, the Services, and your access to them, will be immediately disabled. You must also promptly update all billing information to keep your account and Registration Data current, complete, and accurate, and you must promptly contact Easel.ly if your credit card or other relevant account information is lost, stolen, compromised, or if you become aware of a potential breach of account security. You authorize us to obtain or determine updated or replacement expiration dates for your credit card or other payment method in the event that such, as you provided to us, expires or is terminated. We reserve the right to charge any renewal card or payment method issued to you to the same extent as the expired or terminated card or payment method. If payment is not received from your credit card issuer, bank, or payment service, you agree to pay all amounts due upon demand. You also agree to pay all costs of collection, including attorneys’ fees and costs, on any outstanding balance. Unless otherwise stated, all fees are quoted in U.S. Dollars. Easel.ly reserves the right, with respect to any amount not paid when due, to charge a finance charge equal to one and one-half percent (1.5%) of the unpaid balance per month or the highest rate permitted by applicable usury law, whichever is less, determined and compounded daily from the date due until the date paid.
By accessing the Site and/or using the Services, you consent to receiving electronic communications from us. Such communications may include notices about your account and information concerning or relating to the Services. You agree that any electronic notices, signatures, acknowledgements, transfers, agreements, disclosures, or other communications will satisfy any legal communication requirements, including any requirements that such communications be in writing.
“Confidential Information” means any information disclosed to you by us, directly or indirectly, in writing, orally, or by inspection of tangible objects. Confidential Information does not include any information that you can demonstrate (a) was publicly known and made generally available in the public domain prior to the time of disclosure to you by us; (b) became publicly known and made generally available after disclosure to you by us through no action or inaction of you; or (c) was in the possession of you, without confidentiality restrictions, at the time of disclosure by us, as shown by your files and records. You agree to not use any Confidential Information for any purpose except as permitted by these Terms and any applicable Subscription Agreement you have with us.
You will not disclose, make accessible, or communicate any Confidential Information to third parties, and you agree to limit access to Confidential Information to those of your employees and contractors who need that access for purposes consistent with these Terms and any applicable Subscription Agreement you have with us, and who have signed confidentiality agreements with you containing protections no less stringent than those herein. You will not reverse engineer, disassemble, or decompile any prototypes, software, or other tangible objects that embody our Confidential Information and that are provided to you in accordance with these Terms and any applicable Subscription Agreement you have with us. You will use your best efforts to protect the secrecy of and avoid disclosure and unauthorized use of the Confidential Information. Without limiting the foregoing, you will take at least those measures that you take to protect your own most highly confidential information. You will reproduce our proprietary rights notices on all copies made containing any Confidential Information or as directed by Easel.ly. You will immediately notify us in the event of any unauthorized use or disclosure of the Confidential Information.
ALL CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION IS PROVIDED “AS IS.” WE MAKE NO WARRANTIES, EXPRESS, IMPLIED, OR OTHERWISE, REGARDING THE ACCURACY, COMPLETENESS, OR PERFORMANCE OF THE CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION.
All documents and other tangible objects containing or representing Confidential Information and all copies of them will be and remain the property of Easel.ly. Upon our request, you will (a) promptly deliver to us all Confidential Information, without retaining any copies, and (b) promptly destroy analyses, studies, and other documents prepared based on the Confidential Information, without retaining copies. Nothing in this Agreement is intended to grant any rights to Recipient under any patent, copyright, or other intellectual property right of Company, nor will this Agreement grant Recipient any rights in or to the Confidential Information, except as expressly set forth in this Agreement.
Your obligations regarding Confidential Information will survive until all Confidential Information becomes publicly known and made generally available through no action or inaction of you. You acknowledge that any breach or threatened breach of these Terms regarding Confidential Information would cause irreparable harm to us, and in addition to any other remedies at law or in equity that we may have, we are entitled, without the requirement of posting a bond or other security, to equitable relief, including injunctive relief and specific performance. You agree to indemnify and hold us harmless from any damage, loss, cost, or liability (including reasonable attorney fees) arising or resulting from any unauthorized use or disclosure of the Confidential Information by you or any of your employees.
You may disclose Confidential Information to the extent compelled by law to do so, provided you give us prior notice of the compelled disclosure (to the extent legally permitted) and reasonable assistance, at the our cost, if we wish to contest the disclosure.
You agree, at your sole expense, to defend, indemnify, and hold us, our independent contractors, service providers, and consultants, and their respective directors, employees, and agents, harmless from and against any and all actual or threatened suits, actions, legal proceedings, judgments, and any other legal claims, damage awards, or other compulsory payment or performance of any kind arising out of, resulting from, attributable to or in any way incidental to: (a) your access to or use of the Site, the Services, and/or the Site Materials; (b) your conduct; (c) your violation of these Terms; (d) your violation of the rights of any third party; and (e) any User Content posted by you. Easel.ly is not liable for any loss or damage that results from your failure to comply with your obligations in these Terms or from unauthorized access to or use of your account or Services to which you have subscribed.
We will, at our expense, either defend you from or settle any claim, proceeding, or suit (“Claim”) brought by a third party against you alleging that your use of the portion of the Services provided by us infringe or misappropriate any patent, copyright, trade secret, or trademark, right of any third party, and indemnify you from all damages, costs, and attorneys’ fees finally awarded in any such Claim or paid to any third party to settle any such Claim, subject to the following limitations: Our obligation under this section is contingent on your giving us prompt written notice of the Claim; your granting us full and complete control over the defense and settlement of the Claim; and your providing assistance in connection with the defense and settlement of the Claim as we may reasonably request, at our cost. You will not defend or settle any Claim eligible for indemnification under this section without our prior written consent. Our obligation to indemnify, defend, or settle under this section is obviated should you alter the Services or any Site Materials, or use such contrary to these Terms or the terms of your Subscription Agreement, if you use a version of such that has been superseded, if the Claim could have been avoided by using an unaltered current version of the Services or Site Materials provided to you, or if you continue to use the Services or Site Materials after the end of your license. Further, Easel.ly shall not indemnify you to the extent that an infringement claim is based upon any information, design, specification, instruction, software, data, or material not furnished by us, for any portion of a Claim that is based upon the combination of the Services or Site Materials with any products or services not provided by Easel.ly, for infringement or a Claim caused by your actions against any third party if the Services or Site Materials as delivered to you and used in accordance with the Terms or your Subscription Agreement would not otherwise infringe or violate any third party rights, or for any Claims known to you at the time licensed rights are obtained.
If you are enjoined or otherwise prohibited from using the Services or a portion thereof based on an allegation that the Services violate any third party intellectual property right (including a Claim), or if we reasonably determine that such prohibition is likely, then we will, at our sole expense and option: (a) obtain for you the right to use the allegedly infringing portions of the Services; (b) modify the allegedly infringing portions of the Services so as to render them non-infringing without substantially diminishing or impairing their functionality; or (c) replace the allegedly infringing portions of the Services with non-infringing items of substantially similar functionality. If we determine that the foregoing remedies are not commercially reasonable, then we may terminate the impacted Subscription Agreement, or portion thereof, and will promptly provide a prorated refund to you for any prepaid fees received by us for any Services that have not yet been performed at the time of termination. However, we will have no obligation for any infringement or misappropriation to the extent that it arises out of or is based upon use of the Services in combination with other products or services if such infringement or misappropriation would not have arisen but for such combination; any aspects of the Services that are provided to comply with designs, requirements, or specifications required by or provided by you, if the alleged infringement or misappropriation would not have arisen but for the compliance with such designs, requirements, or specifications; use of the Services by you for purposes not intended or outside the scope of the license granted to you; your failure to use the Services in accordance with written instructions provided by us, if the infringement or misappropriation would not have occurred but for such failure; or any modification of the Services not made or authorized in writing by us where such infringement or misappropriation would not have occurred absent such modification.
