In addition to these Terms, we may ask you to accept additional terms that apply to specific features, promotions, products, or services (“Additional Terms”) from time to time.

If you are under 18 years of age or under the age of legal majority where you live (a “Minor User”), you may only use the Service under the supervision of or with the express consent of a parent or legal guardian who has agreed to be bound by these Terms. If you are a parent or legal guardian of a Minor User, you agree to these Terms and acknowledge and agree that you are fully responsible for the acts and omissions of such Minor User.

In order to access the Service, you must create a User account and register on our website or application to access some or all of the Service. A “User” is anyone accessing the Service, and may include without limitation teachers, instructors, Event staff, participants, and any other person who creates a User account. When doing so, you agree to provide accurate account information and to promptly update this information if and when such information changes. You are responsible for safeguarding the security of your account and login details, and you agree that you will promptly notify us if you discover or suspect that someone has accessed your account without your authorization. You are prohibited from permitting any other party from using your account to access or use the Service or any feature thereof. If you allow others to access the Service through your account, we reserve the right to terminate your account and you will be responsible for any and all activities of such parties. We reserve the right to reclaim User names on behalf of any third party that may hold legal claim to such names or names that are substantially similar to the names to which they hold rights, including without limitation trademark rights relating to such names.

Terms of Sale

a. Availability and Pricing. All products offered for sale on or through the Service are subject to availability. We reserve the right to limit the quantity of any order or to reject all or any part of an order with or without prior notice.

b. Taxes. You are responsible for any and all applicable sales, use, duty, customs, and other taxes, levies, and fees (“Taxes”) that may be due in relation to your purchase of any product or service on or through the Service. We may collect certain applicable Taxes if we determine in our sole discretion that we have a duty to collect such Taxes. We will endeavor to present an estimate of Taxes we collect at checkout, except where we have clearly stated in writing that a particular purchase price includes Taxes. The actual Taxes charged may be adjusted from the amount shown at checkout due to a variety of factors which may include without limitation variances between processor programs and changes in tax rates. You acknowledge and understand that you may have a duty to directly report and pay Taxes in cases where we do not collect such Taxes, and you understand that we are not required to, and do not, collect Taxes in all states.

You represent and warrant that you are authorized to use the payment method that you designated in your account and/or that you entered at the time of purchase. You authorize us to charge your designated payment method for the total amount of your order (including any shipping and handling charges and any applicable taxes). If any of the products or services in your order are unavailable, we will only charge the prices, Taxes and other applicable charges associated with the products or services that are provided to you.
d. Shipping; Risk of Loss. You agree to pay all shipping and handling charges displayed at the time of your purchase. We reserve the right to increase, decrease, add, or eliminate shipping and handling charges at any time provided that we will provide appropriate notice of any changes that apply to your order before you complete your purchase. Any delivery dates, times, or tracking details relating thereto, displayed during the checkout process are estimates only and are not guaranteed.

g. Limited Warranty for Lectec Products. Certain of the products sold via the Service are manufactured by or for Lectec (“Lectec Products”) and may be subject to a limited warranty provided by Lectec. If your Lectec Product is subject to a limited warranty, the limited warranty for your Lectec Product outlines your exclusive remedies and the procedures to make a warranty claim. If your Lectec Product is sold without a limited warranty, then it is sold “as is” and “with all faults.” This means that you bear the entire risk as to the quality, integrity, safety, and performance of such Lectec product. If the Lectec Product has any defect, you assume the entire cost and liability of any repair or replacement relating thereto.
