Changes to the Information Services
We may change the focus of our Information Services to reflect shifts in the market, changes in demand, or for other reasons at our sole discretion. We may offer additional features from time-to-time, modify membership benefits, make available new member promotional offers, discontinue or revise any and all aspects of the Information Services or any of the features at our sole discretion and without prior notice. Programs may be rescheduled or modified. If a program is rescheduled or cancelled, we will transfer your registration to another individual or to a future program, of similar or lesser value, for a period of one year.
Renewals and Term
We will send a notice prior to the end of the annual term, at which time you can cancel your membership by providing us notice by phone or email or through the website. Otherwise, the membership will be renewed for an additional annual term, whether or not a payment has been made by that time.
For Individual Members, your credit card will automatically be charged to renew your membership or an invoice for payment will be generated. Failure to maintain, or remove, your payment information from the My Account page does not constitute a cancellation or serve as notice of your interest in cancelling. Amounts remaining overdue for more than 30 days will be subject to a late charge of 1.5% per month from the date of invoice. We reserve the right to suspend or terminate your membership if payment is not promptly received.
You may have joined at an introductory rate for the initial term, and thereafter charged at the prevailing rate until you cancel. If your membership rate is based on a group discount, that rate may change if your organization fails to maintain the requisite number of memberships. Introductory offers are not available for current members.
You may notify us of your intent to cancel at any time, in which case your cancellation will become effective at the end of the current annual term. In the event of a cancellation, your membership access and accompanying benefits will continue for the remainder of the current annual term, but you will not receive a refund, prorated or otherwise, and your access and license to use program materials, course information, and other resources will terminate at the end of the term.
In no event will we be responsible for refunding any prepaid membership dues, tuition, delegate registration, or other fees, unless otherwise stated. Provided you notify us, and pending our approval, you may transfer your membership, tuition, delegate registration, or other purchase to another individual or to a future program, of similar or lesser value, for a period of one year.
Notwithstanding the expiration or termination of your membership, your indemnification obligations shall survive for all purposes.
We reserve the right to cancel any order, whether the same service has already been acknowledged and/or previously provided.
