  1. Introduction.

This Core Subscription Agreement (“Agreement”) is made and entered into between Client and Pineapple Academy, Inc. (“PA”) by clicking on the box indicating Client’s acceptance of its terms and conditions.  Client will only be able to access and use the PA system services on this Website after providing Client’s acknowledgment of acceptance of this Agreement.

  1. Access and Services.

Client’s access to the various services available on the PA system depends on the level of access client selects on the Services Menu.  Client may change or discontinue Client’s account at any time by logging into the account at MY.PINEAPPLEACADEMY.COM.  Changes can be made by submitting a new registration form.  Termination of Client’s account can be made by following the instructions in section 12 below.  PA reserves the right, as set out in section 12 below, to modify, suspend or terminate access to the Services on the PA system at any time for any reason without notice or refund, including the right to require Client to change Client’s login User ID or password.  After Client is no longer an active customer, PA also reserves the right to delete all program and data files associated with Client’s account and/or other information Client has on PA’s system in accordance with the terms set out in section 12 below.

Client will be allowed to purchase a specified number of licenses for his or her use or for its employee users.  A license will provide user access to selected PA training courses.    The Client may track usage of the courses and how to purchase additional licenses by going to the Administrative Dashboard which is accessed through the Customer Portal on MY.PINEAPPLEACADEMY.COM.  Unless otherwise set forth in the license purchased, courses are not intended for use by more than one designated person at a time and may not be shared with other employees or third parties without the prior written consent of PA.  Licenses may be transferred by authorized users in accordance with the terms of the license.

  1. Subscription Program.

Free Trial.  PA will allow you to cancel the Services without charge within 14 days of contracting for them (“Free Trial Period”).  The Free Trial Program ends immediately at the end of the 14-day time period or when you provide notice of cancellation prior thereto.

Term.   Upon enrollment, the term of this Agreement shall be selected in the Services Menu or Estimate (e.g. monthly, quarterly, semi-annually, annually) and shall end at the expiration of the term selected or 30 days after Client has provided written notice of termination at any time prior thereto.  The term of this Agreement shall automatically renew for successive subscription periods unless Client gives notice of non-renewal to PA via the Customer Portal on MY.PINEAPPLEACADEMY.COM at least 30 days prior to the next scheduled renewal date. 

  1. Fees.

Subscription Fees for the particular Services Client has selected to receive from PA are set out in the Services Menu or Estimate. Fees, for all Services received, will be billed in accordance with the terms set out in the Services Menu or Estimate and no refund or credit will be given to Client, if Client cancels the Subscription Program at any time during the subscription period.    If Client elects to modify a Subscription Program during its term, credits for Fees previously paid may be applied to the new Program selected. All Fees are exclusive of all taxes, levies or duties imposed by taxing authorities, and Client shall be responsible for payment of all such taxes, levies or duties (excluding taxes owed by PA).  PA reserves the right to change its subscription plans and pricing in any manner and at any time as it may determine in its sole and absolute discretion.  Any price changes or plan changes will take effect following written notice sent to Client at least 30 days prior to the end of the current subscription year term; and will not affect plans already contracted.  If Client’s usage exceeds the terms of its Subscription Services plan, it will be billed for such excess usage the following month.  PA will provide prior notice of excess usage before billing the subscriber. 

  1. Payment Methods. 

Client shall pay PA for all Fees through credit card, ACH, PayPal or check (each being a
“Payment Method” or collectively, “Payment Methods”).  A minimum purchase of $100 or more is required for use of check payments.  Client agrees to provide PA the expiration date and other information requested by PA pertaining to the Payment Method, and Client hereby authorizes PA to charge the Payment Method for all Fees applicable to Client’s purchase of the Subscriptions and Services provided pursuant to this Agreement.  Upon cancellation or expiration of Client’s Payment Method, Client agrees to immediately provide a new Payment Method and other information requested by PA pertaining thereto.  Late payments will bear interest at a rate of 1.5% per month until paid in full. 

  1. User ID and Password. 

During the registration process, Client created a User ID and password that allows Client to have access to the Services through the PA Website.  Client will not provide Client’s User ID or password to access Services to any other person or entity or allow any other person or entity to access Services provided to Client under Client’s User ID and password, other than those permitted under Client’s Services plan.  Client agrees they are solely responsible for any actions that occur under Client’s User ID and password.  In the event that Client’s User ID and password become known by an unauthorized third party, Client agrees to notify PA immediately.
