This Membership Agreement (“Agreement”) is between School Growth LLC (doing business as “The School Growth Network”) (“SGN”) and You (“Member”).
Your membership is a contractual privilege to use the SGN videos, systems, and services, and to participate in SGN activities, programs and events offered from time to time. SGN reserves the absolute right without notice to add, change or eliminate any SGN resources or membership types. Your membership does not entitle you to any interest or ownership in SGN or its property and confers no right to participate in the management or operation of SGN. The membership types, the amount of initiation fees, dues and other charges payable by the members, the suspension and termination of members, and all other matters affecting or relating to your membership shall be in SGN’s sole discretion.
(a) Membership Payments. You agree to pay the monthly dues as set forth on the SGN Membership Monthly Dues web page, which shall be debited from your account through electronic funds transfer system on a monthly basis and reflect the current month’s dues and any service fees from the prior month. Except as stated in this Agreement, all membership fees, dues and other payments are nonrefundable. You shall not be relieved of your obligations to make any such payments and no deduction or refund of dues shall be made for your failure to use SGN resources due to vacation, travel, acts of God, or other issues.
(b) Adjustment to Dues Rates and Other Fees. Monthly dues rates, charges and fees for services are subject to change, as deemed necessary by SGN. SGN may increase monthly dues rates by providing you with a minimum of thirty (30) days written notice. If you have a twelve (12) month paid commitment, SGN will not change the monthly dues rate during such initial twelve (12) month period.
(c) Service Charges and Late Fees. If any payment to SGN, including by check, charge or bank draft, is not honored, or if your account is past due, SGN shall have the right to the following remedies, in addition to any other legal or equitable rights: (1) assess a service charge of $50.00 for each dishonored transaction and require reimbursement for cost collection; (2) assess a late fee of $20.00 for all past due accounts; (3) collect the current and past due balance in any subsequent months; and/or (4) suspend or terminate this Agreement. SGN reserves the right to change these service fees and late fees at any time. All payment disputes must be submitted in writing to SGN within 120 days of the disputed charge, to the extent permitted by law.
(a) Cancellation by Member. You may cancel your membership at any time by giving SGN thirty (30) days advance written notice. Such cancellation shall be deemed effective on the first day of the calendar month following the expiration of the 30-day notice period and all outstanding dues and charges have been paid to SGN. You will remain liable for payment of dues and other charges for periods prior to the effective date of cancellation. If you prepaid your membership dues or other charges, and are eligible to cancel your membership before the end of the prepaid period, SGN will not refund prepaid amounts. Until you provide written notice of cancellation as stated above and make all outstanding payments, you will continue to be charged monthly dues.
(b) Cancellation by SGN. SGN may suspend or cancel your membership at any time for (1) failure to pay your monthly dues and other charges when due; (2) any other breach of this Agreement; or (3) any violation of the Guidelines or other rules and regulations of SGN. SGN also has the right to cancel your membership at any time without cause. You will remain liable for payment of dues and other charges for periods prior to the effective date of cancellation. No refunds shall be made for membership dues and other charges.
(c) Additional Rights to Cancellation. You may also cancel this Agreement a) if the services of SGN cease to be offered as stated in this Agreement or b) your corporate entity is terminated or closed for whatever reason. Written notice of cancellation setting forth the reason for cancellation under this section shall be delivered in person or sent by certified or registered United States mail to SGN at the address in this Agreement.
