Unless another payment method is agreed to by Teaching Channel, prior to the purchase of any Course or Subscription on this Site, you must provide a valid credit card number and related payment information. By submitting that information to us or our third party payment processor, you hereby authorize Teaching Channel to charge your credit card for such purchases.

Promotional Codes

We may send push notifications from time to time in order to update you about events or promotions. If you no longer wish to receive such communications, you may turn them off at the device level. Teaching Channel reserves the right to modify or cancel any promotional code at any time. The terms of all current promotions can be found [HERE].

Certain subscriptions may be eligible for promotional codes. The promotional code must be entered at checkout in order to be applied to your eligible subscription order, and cannot be applied after an order is submitted. The promotional codes are promotional discount codes for eligible products, and have no cash redeemable value. Each promotional code can be used only once per user per account, unless otherwise specified, and are non-transferrable. Promotional code can only be redeemed online. The promotional codes are valid for a limited time only, and expire on the last day of the promotion period at 11:59 PM Eastern Standard Time (EST). 

You must be 16 years or older to redeem a promotional code. Each promotional code is redeemable on select product subscriptions only, and may require a minimum dollar value purchase. Promotional codes cannot be used in combination with other discounts, coupons, promotions, shipping specials or other promotional code. Upon entering the promotional code and purchasing an eligible subscription, the promotional code will apply to both your initial subscription period and any subsequent consecutive renewals of such subscription unless modified or canceled by Teaching Channel or if you deactivate your account or cancel your auto-renewal feature found on your account page on this site. If you purchase a subscription after deactivating or cancelling your account or the auto-renew feature, you will be charged at the then-current, non-promotional subscription rate.

SUBSCRIPTIONS SHALL BE AUTOMATICALLY ENROLLED IN AUTO-RENEWAL WHEN YOUR ORDER IS PLACED

When placing an Order for a monthly video Subscription, you will be automatically enrolled to have your Subscription automatically renew each month. Thereafter , your Subscription will renew automatically at the end of each month and your credit card will be charged the fee for the following month in advance, unless you opt-out of the auto-renewal feature by changing your election on your My Orders page at least (2) days in advance of the expiration of the then-current Term.

All prices for any Course or Subscription on this Site are quoted in U.S. currency, and are subject to change at any time without notice. Teaching Channel makes no representations or warranties regarding the availability of products and services in all areas. Teaching Channel shall have the right to refuse or cancel any Orders listed at an incorrect price, or containing any other incorrect information or typographical errors. Teaching Channel shall have the right to refuse or cancel any such Orders whether or not the Order has been accepted by Teaching Channel and/or your payment has been processed.

Unless you notify Teaching Channel in writing at orders@TeachingChannel.com of any discrepancies in charges for Orders within sixty (60) days of the erroneous charge(s) appearing on your credit card statement, you agree that such charges will be deemed accepted by you for all purposes hereunder. Such notice shall describe the amount in dispute, and you further agree to provide Teaching Channel with any requested additional information and verifications concerning same. In the event Teaching Channel does not receive payment from your credit card issuer, you shall pay all amounts due upon demand by Teaching Channel. If Teaching Channel is unable to collect amounts owed on your accounts, Teaching Channel may refer those accounts to a collection agency, and you will be responsible for all costs of collection.

In the event you violate any of the terms hereof, or if your Subscription is not renewed, all rights and licenses granted to you hereunder shall immediately terminate. Any provision of these Terms that by its very nature or context is intended to survive any termination, cancellation or expiration hereof or thereof, including without limitation confidentiality and indemnification provisions, shall so survive.

Payment Terms

You agree that you will pay for use of the System and for all Subscriptions, Content, and Courses in which you enroll through the Site, and that Teaching Channel may charge/debit your credit card or other designated payment method for any such purchases, and for any additional amounts (including any taxes, fees, or other charges) that may be accrued by or in connection with your use of the System Subscriptions, Content, or Course enrollment. The total price to you for such purchases will include applicable taxes, if any, based on the bill-to address provided by you. Prices may change at any time, and the prices set forth on the Site do not provide for price protection or for refunds in the event of any subsequent price reduction or promotional offering. Teaching Channel reserves the right, with or without prior notice, to limit or discontinue the availability of any product or service, and to not honor or otherwise impose additional conditions on any promotional code or limited promotions. Terms, conditions and restrictions on any current promotions can be found [HERE].

Given the nature of digital content, all sales of digital books and materials separate from a Course are final.

The monthly or annual, as applicable, Subscription fee will be the amount agreed to at the time of enrollment. Thereafter, Teaching Channel has the right to increase or decrease any such fee by providing you notice of such increase or decrease at least 60 days prior to the effective date of such change. If you elect for your Subscription to be automatically renewed as provided above, you hereby expressly authorize Teaching Channel to charge the applicable fees to the credit card you used to pay for your initial Subscription.

YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE TIMELY PAYMENT OF ALL FEES AND FOR PROVIDING TEACHING CHANNEL WITH A VALID PAYMENT METHOD FOR PAYMENT.

You agree to accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your account or password. On the registration payment page, you will be given the option to make a one-time payment or to have a set number of consecutive monthly charges/debits posted to your credit card or other designated payment method for your System use, video or content Subscription, Course enrollment, or other purchases on this Site. If you elect to terminate your authorization for extended payments all unpaid amounts will become immediately due and payable and will be immediately charged/debited to your credit card or other designated payment method. Notwithstanding any early termination of authorization, you remain liable for all charges due for System use, Subscription, Course enrollment, or other purchases made on this Site. Please be aware, full payment must be received within your selected term window to earn credit and a grade for all registered Courses. Regardless of grade earned, full payment is required. You will not be dropped from your Course(s) because of an incomplete payment. If you are registered for Courses beyond the 30 day cancellation window, you are financially responsible for full Course payment.

Course Refund Policy

To be eligible for a refund or credit for a Course (as further described below), you must notify us in writing within 30 days of registering for a Course at info@TeachingChannel.com with the stated reason for your cancellation. Unfortunately, we cannot offer you a refund or further credit toward Teaching Channel Courses if 30 days have passed since you have registered for a Course.

If you are requesting a refund, your refund will be processed and a credit for the remaining amount will be applied to your credit card or original method of payment within 30 days of approval of your request.

If you are requesting credit toward another Teaching Channel Course, we will be happy to assist you in enrolling in a Course that you believe will better suit your needs for no additional fee; provided that the substituted Course is of the same type and credit. You are responsible for any additional costs or fees applicable to a substituted Course. Teaching Channel reserves the right to deny any refund or credit request in its sole discretion. Teaching Channel also reserves the right to modify its cancellation and refund policy at any time, or from time to time, by posting notice of same on this Site.

Continuing education graduate credit is intended to fulfill requirements for license renewal/lane change when the participant has obtained proper prior approval. Teaching Channel does not warrant or guarantee that our Courses will meet your intended needs. Many schools, districts, and states have different requirements for professional development. Check with your district personnel or state Department of Education to gain prior approval for the Teaching Channel Courses you purchase.
