Schoolwide reserves the right to decide whether Content or a User Submission is appropriate and complies with these Terms of Service for violations other than copyright infringement, such as, but not limited to, pornography, obscene or defamatory material, poor quality, or excessive length. Schoolwide may remove such User Submissions and/or terminate a User’s access for uploading such material in violation of these Terms of Service at any time, without prior notice and at its sole discretion.
8. Digital Millennium Copyright Act
A. If you are a copyright owner or an agent thereof and believe that any User Submission or other content infringes upon your copyrights, you may submit a notification pursuant to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”) by providing the following information in writing:
• A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed;
• Identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed, or, if multiple copyrighted works at a single online site are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works at that site;
• Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled and information reasonably sufficient to permit the service provider to locate the material;
• Information reasonably sufficient to permit the service provider to contact you, such as an address, telephone number, and an e-mail address;
• A statement that you have a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and
• A statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that you are authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.
Schoolwide’s designated Copyright Agent to receive notifications of claimed infringement is: firstname.lastname@example.org. You acknowledge that if you fail to comply with all of the requirements of this Section, your DMCA notice may not be valid.
B. If you believe that your User Submission that was removed (or to which access was disabled) is not infringing, or that you have authorization from the copyright owner, the copyright owner’s agent, or pursuant to law, to post and use the content in your User Submission, you may send a counter-notice containing the following information:
• Your physical or electronic signature;
• Identification of the content that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location where the content appeared before it was removed or disabled;
• A statement that you have a good faith belief that the content was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or a misidentification of the content; and
• Your name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address, a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the federal court in Islip, New York, and a statement that you will accept service of process from the person who provided notification of the alleged infringement.
If a counter-notice is received, Schoolwide may send a copy of the counter-notice to the original complaining party, informing that person that it may replace the removed content or cease disabling it within 10 business days. Unless the copyright owner files an action seeking a court order against the content provider, member, or user, the removed content may be replaced, or access to it restored, in 10 to 14 business days or more after receipt of the counter-notice, at Schoolwide’s sole discretion.

SCHOOLWIDE COMMUNITY GUIDELINES
Schoolwide.com and its affiliated websites prioritize teachers and empower educators with the tools and resources required to make a positive impact on student achievement.
Here are some common sense rules we respectfully request that you abide by:
• Schoolwide.com is not the place for pornography or any sexually explicit content in any format or medium whatsoever.
• Do not post content involving animal abuse, drug abuse, underage drinking or smoking, or bomb making.
• Graphic or gratuitous violence is not allowed. If your content shows someone being physically hurt, attacked, or humiliated, do not post it.
• Respect copyrights. Only upload content that you made or that you are authorized to use.
• Obtain permissions. If your content features the images or voices of others, including colleagues, students, and/or parents, please obtain their consent before posting.
• We encourage free speech and an individual’s right to express an unpopular opinion, but we do not permit hate speech (speech that attacks or demeans an individual or group based on race or ethnic origin, religion, disability, gender, age, and/or sexual orientation) or vulgar, offensive, or obscene language.
• Do not create misleading descriptions, tags, titles or thumbnails in order to increase views.
Please take these rules seriously. Understand them and respect the spirit in which they were created.
We Enforce These Guidelines
Schoolwide’s staff periodically reviews User Submissions to determine appropriateness for our viewership and to ensure that submissions do not violate our Community Guidelines. Accounts are penalized for Community Guidelines violations and serious or repeated violations can lead to account termination. If your account is terminated, you will not be allowed to create any new accounts.
1. Your Acceptance
B. Although we may attempt to notify you when changes are made to the Terms of Service, you should periodically review the most up-to-date version(s), which are located at www.schoolwide.com. Schoolwide may, in its sole discretion, modify or revise the Terms of Service and policies at any time, and you agree to be bound by such modifications or revisions. Nothing in the Terms of Service shall be deemed to confer any third-party rights or benefits.
2. Subscription, Free Trials, Billing and Cancellation
I. Ongoing Subscription. Your Fundamentals Unlimited subscription, which may start with a free trial, will continue monthly unless and until you cancel your subscription or it is terminated by Schoolwide, Inc. You must provide us with a current, valid, accepted method of payment (which “Payment Method” may be updated from time to time) to use the Fundamentals Unlimited service. Schoolwide will bill the monthly subscription fee to your Payment Method. You must cancel your subscription before it renews each month in order to avoid billing of the next month’s subscription fees to your Payment Method.
II. Differing Subscriptions. Schoolwide may offer a number of subscription plans, including but not limited to: fixed annual subscriptions for varying terms (e.g., one year, two years, five years), special promotional plans, or subscriptions with differing conditions and limitations. For fixed annual subscriptions, the terms outlined above for “Ongoing Subscriptions,” including monthly billing and auto-renew until cancellation, do not apply. We reserve the right to modify, terminate, or otherwise amend our offered subscription plans.
B. Free Trials
I. Your Fundamentals Unlimited subscription may start with a free trial. The free trial period of your subscription lasts for 30 days, or as otherwise specified during sign-up. Free trials are for new members only. Schoolwide reserves the right, in its absolute discretion, to determine your free trial eligibility.
II. Schoolwide will begin billing your Payment Method for monthly subscription fees at the end of the free trial period of your subscription unless you cancel prior to the end of the free trial period.
III. You will not receive a notice from us that your free trial period has ended or that the paying portion of your subscription has begun. To cancel your subscription, contact Schoolwide, Inc. at email@example.com or toll–free at 1.800.261.9964 ext. 2. We will continue to bill your Payment Method for your subscription fee on a monthly basis until you cancel.
I. Recurring Billing. By starting your Fundamentals Unlimited subscription and providing or designating a Payment Method, you authorize us to charge you a monthly subscription fee at the then current rate, and any other charges you may incur in connection with your use of the Fundamentals Unlimited service, to your Payment Method.
III. Billing Cycle. The subscription fee for our service will be billed at the beginning of the paying portion of your subscription and each month thereafter unless and until you cancel your subscription. We automatically bill your Payment Method each month on the calendar day corresponding to the commencement of your paying subscription. Subscription fees are fully earned upon payment. We reserve the right to change the timing of our billing, in particular, as indicated below, if your Payment Method has not successfully settled. In the event your paying subscription began on a day not contained in a given month, we may bill your Payment Method on a day in the applicable month or such other day as we deem appropriate. No Refunds. PAYMENTS ARE NONREFUNDABLE AND THERE ARE NO REFUNDS OR CREDITS FOR PARTIALLY USED PERIODS. Following any cancellation, however, you will continue to have access to the service through the end of your current billing period. At any time, and for any reason, we may provide a refund, discount, or other consideration to some or all of our members (“credits”). The amount and form of such credits, and the decision to provide them, are in our sole and absolute discretion. The provision of credits in one instance does not entitle you to credits in the future for similar instances, nor does it obligate us to provide credits in the future, under any circumstance.
IV. Payment Methods. You may edit your Payment Method information by visiting our website and clicking on the “Manage Account” link. If a payment is not successfully settled, due to expiration, insufficient funds, or otherwise, and you do not edit your Payment Method information or cancel your account (see, “Cancellation” below), you remain responsible for any uncollected amounts and authorize us to continue billing the Payment Method, as it may be updated. This may result in a change to your payment billing dates.
V. Cancellation. You may cancel your Fundamentals Unlimited subscription at any time, and you will continue to have access to the Fundamentals Unlimited service through the end of your monthly billing period. SCHOOLWIDE DOES NOT PROVIDE REFUNDS OR CREDITS FOR ANY PARTIAL-MONTH SUBSCRIPTION PERIODS. To cancel, go to the “Manage Account” page on our website and follow the instructions for cancellation. If you cancel your subscription, your account will automatically close at the end of your current billing period.
