Terms and Conditions Agreement

This Terms and Conditions Agreement (“Agreement”) is between Reeve Autism Consulting, LLC, a Florida limited liability company, doing business as The Special Educator Academy (“The Academy”) and You (“Member” or “you”) regarding a program you wish to purchase through The Academy.

This Agreement is a binding legal contract; please review it in full. By purchasing a membership to The Special Educator Academy Membership Site (the “Program”) on the website, you expressly agree to be bound, without modification, to this Agreement. If you do not agree to be bound to this Agreement, you cannot purchase the Program.

If you are purchasing the Program on behalf of an organization, you warrant that you are authorized to bind that organization to legal agreements, and as such, that organization accepts this Agreement, and all the terms of this Agreement apply to that organization.

As you are enrolling in a membership-style Program, with recurring monthly payments, The Academy may amend this Agreement at any time by sending you a revised version at the email address you provide us, and you automatically become bound by the latest version of the Agreement unless you withdraw from the Program. You have an affirmative duty to notify us of any changes to your email address, and to review any changes to the Agreement.

This Agreement was last modified on January 13, 2022.

The Special Educator Academy Membership Site. As a Member of the Program, you will receive immediate access to all content currently available on the membership site, which includes:

  • Video/audio course(s) with workbook/manual.
  • Opportunity to receive individual feedback on course assignments.
  • Monthly live (recorded) Question/Answer session.
  • Monthly live (recorded) webinar session.
  • Community online forum.
  • Exclusive resources.

Member Duties. You understand that you hold essential information that The Academy needs to provide effective services to you, including your goals and intended outcomes for the Program, and you are responsible for communicating such information to The Academy staff. You must be willing to participate fully in the Program to achieve results. You understand that any abusive, negative, or inappropriate conduct with The Academy staff or any of the other Program members is a material breach of this Agreement.

Forum Rules. You agree to comply with the rules of the Program online forum including: you will not use the online forum to post spam, including promotions or advertisements for other products and services; you will not use the online forum to abuse, defame, harass, threaten, or post objectionable or illegal content, including hate speech and pornography; you will only post content that you own or have a license to post; you will not post content that infringes on a copyright or trademark; The Academy may moderate, edit, or delete posts at any time, at The Academy’s sole discretion; and The Academy may ban a member from the group at any time, for violating the above rules, without any refund or appeal. Any information you provide to The Academy and other members in a forum group is not confidential. However, you agree that you will respect the privacy of fellow Program members, and will not repost or share the information provided by a fellow Program member with any third party, including on the Internet or via social media.

Payments. You agree to pay a monthly membership fee using an automatic billing system (either PayPal or Stripe, upon your selection). You agree that The Academy may charge your credit card (via Stripe) or your bank account or credit card (via PayPal) automatically each month on your renewal date until you cancel. The Academy may also offer an annual payment option; if you choose this option you also agree that The Academy may automatically renew your account annually, as above. Overdue amounts, including bounced payments or chargebacks, will be assessed a late payment charge at a monthly rate of 1.5% or the maximum provided by law, whichever is less. You understand that if a payment is late, charged-back, or declined for any reason, you will no longer have access to the Program until the late payment is rectified. The Academy will have the right to recover expenses including collection costs and reasonable attorney's fees incurred in the collection of overdue amounts. You understand and agree that you are responsible for the payment even if you choose not to utilize the Program.

Cancellation. To cancel, you must email chris@specialeducatoracademy.com at least three business (3) days before your automatic renewal date (this is so the payments do not begin processing via our merchant processing system). If you cancel your account, you will continue to receive access for the current month, but you will not be charged for any future monthly payments.

First Month 30-Day Refund Policy. If you email chris@specialeducatoracademy.com within the first 30-days of your membership that you wish to cancel your membership and wish to receive a refund, for any reason or for no reason, The Academy will cancel your membership and refund your first month’s payment. Upon cancellation and refund, you will no longer receive access to the Program. No other refunds will be granted on monthly payments. The Academy may offer annual payment options; if you cancel a membership where you have paid via annual payment, you will be refunded a pro-rata share of the months remaining (but not for past months or for current months).

Intellectual Property. The Academy owns the copyrights and other intellectual property rights over any materials provided in the Program under this Agreement. You are licensed to use the materials only for your own individual use within your classroom or caseload, unless otherwise specified on the material itself. Some materials may specify that they are licensed for other purposes (such as for staff training); if so, you are licensed according to the terms specified on the material. You are not allowed to reproduce, share, distribute, or sell these materials beyond the scope of this license, including posting materials on the Internet or sharing materials via social media.

Continuing Education Units. You will receive a certificate of completion upon completing each course and passing the quiz or questionnaire. The certificate will include information regarding the training, the learning objectives, and Christine Reeve’s biography, to assist you in obtaining credit. However, The Academy cannot guarantee that you will receive Continuing Education Units.

Forum Content. You retain all intellectual property rights, including copyright and trademark rights, over all content you upload to the online forum. You agree to grant The Academy a non-exclusive, universe-wide, transferable, sub-licensable, royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable license to use the content you upload to the online forum (including but not limited to content showing your use of The Academy teaching’s in practice, such as photography) in and around the marketing and promotion of The Academy, with attribution credit to you.

Term. This Agreement begins when you purchase a membership to the Program and shall continue until the Agreement is terminated under this section or until your membership in the Program is cancelled, whichever is first.

No Guarantees or Warranties. The Program is for your education and information. The Academy cannot and does not guarantee that any specific results will be obtained from the Program, because your results involve factors beyond the control of The Academy, including your experience, training, and education.

You agree to indemnify The Academy against all claims and damages arising out of your breach or alleged breach out of any representations, warranties, or agreements made by you under this Agreement and your participation in the Program.

Note: The Program does not include access to resources from TeachersPayTeachers.com.

Force Majeure. Neither Party will liable hereunder for any failure or delay in the performance of its obligations under this Agreement if such failure or delay is on account of causes beyond its control, including labor disputes, civil commotion, war, fires, floods, inclement weather, government regulations or controls, casualty, government authority, strikes, terrorism, hacker attacks, widespread internet outages, or acts of God, in which event the non-performing party will be excused from its obligations for the period of the delay and for a commercially reasonable time thereafter.

Waiver of Consequential Damages. No party will be liable to another party or any person, firm, corporation or other business association claiming by, through or under any theory of tort, contract, strict liability or other legal or equitable theory for lost profits, exemplary, punitive, special, incidental, indirect, or consequential damages, whether or not any party or entity has been advised of the possibility of such damages.

Sharing your login information with any other person (except as provided above) is a material breach of this Agreement.
