We strongly encourage you to take a look at it and contact us at the email address provided in the Privacy Policy if you have any questions.

By creating a Registered User account on the Site or otherwise using the Site or our Services, you are providing us with your personal information. This personal information can include information you intentionally provide to us, such as your name, address, email address, phone number, or payment information, and can also include information automatically collected by the Site, such as your web browser and operating system information, location information, and a record of pages within the Site that you access. Your use of the Site and our collection and use of this personal information is subject to our Privacy Policy. We encourage you to carefully review our Privacy Policy, as it is designed to inform you about how and why we collect and use your data, what data we collect, and what your rights are to control your data.

We provide Users with access to the Services as described below.  HomeSchool ThinkTank, LLC is under no obligation to accept any individual as a Registered User and may accept or reject any registration in its sole and complete discretion. In addition, HomeSchool ThinkTank, LLC may deactivate any account at any time, including and without limitation, if it determines that a Registered User has violated these Terms of Use.

More simply put: Check out our Privacy Policy!  It’s important for you to understand your rights. Using our website means you’re agreeing to how we handle the personal information you give us. 

Electronic Communications

By creating an account on the Site, contacting us via email, or otherwise providing your email address to us, you consent to receive emails or other electronic communications and you agree that all agreements, notices, disclosures and other communications that we provide to you electronically, via email and on the Site, satisfy any legal requirement that such communications be in writing. With regard to communications containing announcements, advertisements, or solicitations, you have the right to revoke this consent at any time and opt-out of such communications. Please refer to our Privacy Policy for a better understanding of your rights and how to opt-out of such communications.

More simply put: Our preferred way to contact you is by email and you’re agreeing to let us do that.

Your Account

If you use this Site, you are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account and password, and you agree to accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your account or password, whether or not undertaken by you. You may not assign or otherwise transfer your account to any other person or entity. You acknowledge that we are not responsible for third party access to your account that results from theft or misappropriation of your account credentials or any computer or other device through which your account has or can be accessed. We and our associates reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to refuse or cancel service, terminate accounts, or remove or edit content published to the Site.

During the registration process for Registered Users, we will ask you to create an account, which includes a sign-in name (“Sign-In Name”), a password (“Password”), and perhaps certain additional information that will assist in authenticating your identity when you log-in in the future (“Unique Identifiers”). When creating your account, you must provide true, accurate, current, and complete information. Each Sign-In Name and corresponding Password can be used by only one Registered User.  Sharing your access credentials with others (especially if they are using your credentials to access our proprietary Content (as defined below)) is a material breach of this Agreement.  

Users Under 18.  We do not knowingly collect, by any means, personal information from persons under the age of thirteen (13) years. If you are thirteen (13) or older, but under the age of eighteen (18) and the age of majority in your jurisdiction, you may use the Site only with permission of your parent or legal guardian. Children under the age of thirteen (13) years may only use the Site with permission of their parent or legal guardian and may only access the Site’s members-only features after having a children’s user account created on their behalf by their parent or legal guardian. At this time, children under the age of thirteen (13) may not set up an account or use the members-only features.

More simply put: You’re responsible for keeping your password a secret and keeping your account secure. If you are under 13 years-old, you must have your parent’s permission to use this website.  If you are under 18 and are not considered an adult where you live, you should review the Agreements with your parent or guardian and you may only use the site with your parent or legal guardian’s permission.

Fees and Payments

As consideration for any purchase you make on the Site, you shall pay HomeSchool ThinkTank, LLC all applicable fees and taxes. We (or our third-party payment processor) shall authorize your credit card, bank account, or other approved payment facility you provided during the registration process for the full payment of the fees and any applicable taxes, and you hereby consent to the same. If the mailing address you provided us is in the United States, all payments will be charged and made in U.S. dollars.

You must provide current, complete, and accurate billing and credit card information. You must promptly update all billing information (such as billing address, card number, and expiration date) to keep your account current, complete, and accurate, and you must promptly contact us if your credit card is lost or stolen, or if you become aware of a potential breach of account security (such as an unauthorized disclosure or use of your Sign-In Name or Password). You hereby authorize HomeSchool ThinkTank, LLC to obtain or determine updated or replacement expiration dates for your credit card in the event that the credit card you provided us expires. We reserve the right to charge any renewal card issued to you to the same extent as the expired card. If payment is not received from your credit card issuer, you hereby agree to pay all amounts due upon demand. You agree to pay all costs of collection, including attorney’s fees and costs, on any outstanding balance. In certain instances, the issuer of your credit card may charge you a foreign transaction fee or related charges, which you will be responsible to pay. You are advised to check with your bank and credit card issuer for details.

Cancellation Policy

If you purchase a subscription or other product with recurring charges, you may request to cancel any such products or services at any time by using our online purchasing platform or, if cancellation cannot be achieved through use of our site, by submitting a written request to us via email or postal mail. For monthly or yearly subscriptions, your cancellations must be received prior to their scheduled renewal date. Each subscription will remain active until the end of the subscription period you paid for prior to your termination. Refunds for Services and pro-rated refunds for subscriptions terminated prior to their expiration may be available, subject to our Refund Policy.

More simply put: You can cancel a purchase going forward but can’t retroactively cancel one. You can ask for a refund, though – we’ll talk more about that later!

Refund Policy

You may request a refund for any unused portion of a subscription service or for any purchase we have not already fulfilled. We may, in our sole and absolute discretion, either approve or deny your request for a refund based on such considerations as, for example and without limitation, whether we have made substantial progress in providing you with the purchased product or service at the time of your requested refund. In the event that we approve your request for a refund, your refund may be reduced by any costs, fees, or expenses already incurred by us pursuant to or in fulfillment of your order.

More simply put: We try to be accommodating with refund requests – we have to say ‘no’ to some but try to say ‘yes’ whenever we can.

Third Party Vendors

Much of the content provided on the Site, including, for example and without limitation, items, products, and services sold by third-party vendors, is neither provided directly by nor endorsed by HomeSchool ThinkTank. By using the Site or purchasing items, products, or services from any vendors through the Site, you are agreeing to release HomeSchool ThinkTank, LLC and its agents, assigns, successors, employees, officers, owners, and attorneys from any liability resulting from or related to your purchase or use of such items, products, or services from third-party vendors or any injuries sustained by you or third parties thereby.

More simply put: We’re not the only ones selling goods and services through our website. You may be buying products or services from other people, and that’s okay – we’re just not responsible for the goods and services you buy or how you use them!

Your Responsibilities

Some of our Services may require you to participate to some extent in their delivery. If we, in our sole and absolute discretion, determine that you are failing or unwilling to so participate, we may terminate or cancel the Services at any time, with or without prior notice or opportunity to cure. Your participation may require, for example and without limitation, responding to our emails, phone calls, or other communications, and paying any and all amounts due to us in a timely manner.

More simply put: Sometimes services are a two-way street – make sure to keep in touch with us when we ask you to so you’re able to fully enjoy the services you buy from us!

Chargeback Policy

By purchasing Services from us, you agree to communicate with us within 30 days about any charges, fees, or other amounts invoiced to you which you believe are in error. You further agree not to seek a chargeback on any credit card payments already made to us. In the event that you initiate a chargeback, you agree that we may, in our sole and absolute discretion, impose a chargeback fee of $100 in addition to any amounts incurred by us in collecting those amounts charged back.

More simply put: If you buy goods or services with a credit card and then dispute the charges with your credit card company, that makes more work for everyone and may cost you a $100 fee on top of everything else. If you don’t agree with a charge, reach out to us! We’re happy to work with you to try and resolve any issues you may be having.

However, we cannot guarantee compliance by any third-party with industry standards, laws, and regulations governing the collection, management, and use of such data. By purchasing or making use of the Services, you hereby acknowledge and consent that we may share such information and data with any third party with whom we have a contractual relationship to provide the requested product, service, or functionality for the benefit of our users and customers.

More simply put: We can’t control what goes on other people’s websites. We provide some links to them if we think they might be helpful for you, but be sure to look at those websites’ Terms of Use and Privacy Policies – they’re not the same as ours!

Use of Communication Services

The Site may contain blog, membership site,  or other content publishing features which users of the Site may utilize to create posts or engage in discourse with other users that may be visible to and accessible by the general public, including a blog, social/professional networking platforms, and member-to-member or user-to-user messaging (collectively the “Blog”). You agree to use the Blog only to post questions or comments that are proper and related to the general subject matter of the Site and that pertain to those specific Blog categories under which you and other users are clearly permitted to post. If you submit Content to us, each such submission constitutes a representation and warranty to HomeSchool ThinkTank, LLC that such Content is your original creation (or that you otherwise have the right to provide the Content), that you have the rights necessary to grant the license to the Content, and that it and its use by HomeSchool ThinkTank, LLC and its content partners as permitted by this Agreement does not and will not infringe or misappropriate the intellectual property or moral rights of any person or contain any libelous, defamatory, or obscene material or content that violates our Agreements. While use of the Site is generally governed by our Privacy Policy, you agree to be solely responsible for the dissemination and use by third parties of any information you voluntarily post or relay through use of the Blog. Such dissemination and use are beyond our ability to control and we therefore assume no responsibility for any loss, appropriation, or misuse of any such information.  You, and not HomeSchool ThinkTank, LLC, are entirely responsible for all your registered user content that you upload, post, email, or otherwise transmit via the Site.  

Without limiting your other responsibilities under these Terms of Use, you agree that when using the Site,  you will not: defame, abuse, harass, stalk, threaten, or otherwise violate the legal rights (such as rights of privacy and publicity) of others; publish, post, upload, distribute, or disseminate any inappropriate, profane, defamatory, infringing, obscene, indecent, or unlawful topic, name, material, or information; upload or attempt to upload software or files of any kind; advertise or offer to sell or buy any goods or services for any business purpose; conduct or forward surveys, contests, pyramid schemes, or chain letters; restrict or inhibit any other user from using and enjoying the Blog; violate any code of conduct or other guidelines which may be applicable for any particular part of the Blog; harvest or otherwise collect information about others, including e-mail addresses, without their consent; or violate any applicable laws or regulations.

We have no obligation to monitor user interactions with the Blog. However, we reserve the right to review any submissions to the Blog, including original posts and responses/replies, and to either approve or deny submissions before they are posted to the Blog. We further reserve the right to terminate your access to the Blog or any parts of the Blog at any time, with or without notice, for any reason whatsoever.

Our right to disclose your personal information, including personal information provided to, by, or through the Blog, is governed by our Privacy Policy.  

Always use caution when giving out any personally identifying information about yourself or your children through use of the Blog. We do not control or endorse the content, messages, or information found in content, including original posts and responses/replies, posted on the Blog and, therefore, we specifically disclaim any liability with regard to said content.

More simply put: We try to keep an eye on the blog, the networking tools, and everything else people can post to on the website, but there’s a lot and we can’t review all of it – so please be careful using these features and think carefully before revealing your personal or sensitive information on publicly accessible blogs or message boards, as we’re not responsible for what people post.

Reliance on Content

By using the Site and agreeing to these Terms of Use, you agree that you are personally responsible for any decision you make to rely on the content provided on the Site, including the content previously described as the Services and other content, for example and without limitation, books, courses, lessons, podcasts, videos, webinars, modules or other audio-visual content (collectively the “Content”) provided by HomeSchool ThinkTank, LLC and/or by Users of the Site .  We have taken reasonable steps to ensure that the information contained in this Site is accurate, but we cannot represent that this Site is free of errors.

You expressly agree not to rely upon any information contained in this Site.  You further agree to release, defend, indemnify, and hold HomeSchool ThinkTank, LLC and its owners, officers, directors, agents, attorneys, affiliates, and guest contributors harmless from and against any claims arising from or relating to your reliance on the Content, including any injuries or other harms suffered or sustained by you or by third parties thereby.

More simply put: Some of the content on our website will have some great ideas, but it’s up to you to decide what you want to do with the ideas and concepts you discover here. We’re not responsible for what you decide to try or how it turns out.

Third Party Accounts

You may be able to connect your user account on the Site (your “Site Account”) to accounts owned, hosted, or provided by third parties, including, for example and without limitation, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram, Mighty Networks, or YouTube.

We cannot guarantee the responsible data handling of those third parties or their compliance with industry standards and applicable laws and regulations, including, for example, GDPR. By using this feature, you are consenting to having your personal information and other data shared with these third parties and instructing us to do so. You may revoke this consent at any time by disabling this feature. We will, upon such revocation, cease sharing this data with the applicable third parties. We cannot verify or control the data retained by those third parties after such revocation.

More simply put: You can connect your user account on our website to your social networking or media accounts with other websites, but that means they’ll have access to at least some of the data you provide on our site. Be sure you trust those other sites and how they handle your data before connecting your accounts, since we won’t be able to make those other sites erase your data once they have it.

International Users

The Service is controlled, operated, and administered by HomeSchool ThinkTank, LLC from our offices within the State of New Mexico in the United States of America.

More simply put: We try to keep up-to-date with laws around the world that our users might be subject to, but we’re based in the United States and these terms were created with that in mind. Also, if you’re not allowed to access our Site or use our Services because of the laws in place where you live, please don’t!

Indemnification

You agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless HomeSchool ThinkTank, LLC, its officers, directors, employees, agents, attorneys, and third party affiliates from and against any losses, costs, liabilities and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) relating to or arising out of your use of or inability to use the Site or Services, any Blog posts made by you, your violation of any terms of this Agreement, your violation of any rights of any third party, or your violation of any applicable laws, rules, or regulations.

Termination/Access Restriction

We reserve the right, in our sole and absolute discretion, to terminate your access to the Site and the related Services or any portion thereof at any time, without notice. To the maximum extent permitted by law, this agreement is governed by the laws of the State of New Mexico and the United States of America, and you hereby consent to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of courts in New Mexico in all disputes arising out of or relating to the use of the Site. Use of the Site is unauthorized in any jurisdiction that does not give effect to all provisions of these Terms, including, without limitation, this section.

You agree that no joint venture, partnership, or employment relationship exists between you and HomeSchool ThinkTank, LLC as a result of this agreement or use of the Site but agree that an agency relationship shall exist for purposes of performing the Services you order. Our performance of the Services is subject to all applicable laws and regulations, and nothing contained in these Terms of Use is in derogation of our right and obligation to comply with governmental, court, and law enforcement requests or requirements relating to your use of the Site or information provided to or gathered by us with respect to such use. If any part of these Terms of Use is determined to be invalid or unenforceable pursuant to applicable law including, but not limited to, the warranty disclaimers and liability limitations set forth above, then the invalid or unenforceable provision will be deemed superseded by a valid, enforceable provision that most closely matches the intent of the original provision and the remainder of the Terms of Use shall continue in effect.

Unless otherwise specified, these Terms of Use, our Privacy Policy, and our Cookie Policy comprise the entire agreement between you and HomeSchool ThinkTank, LLC with respect to your use of the Site, and it supersedes all prior or contemporaneous agreements or representations, whether electronic, oral, or written, between you and the Company with respect to your use of the Site. A printed version of this agreement and of any notice given in electronic form shall be admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings based upon or relating to this agreement to the same extent and subject to the same conditions as other business documents and records originally generated and maintained in printed form. It is the express wish to the parties that this agreement and all related documents be written in English.

More simply put: You’re allowed to use our website, but we’re allowed to cut off your access to it for any reason. You’re also agreeing that we’re not forming a legal partnership or other business venture with each other simply by your use of the website or our services. Lastly, you’re agreeing that these Terms of Use, along with our Privacy Policy and Cookie Policy, contain everything we’ve agreed to with each other and that we don’t have any deals going on the side. 

Binding Arbitration

In the event of any dispute between the Parties over the terms or subject matter of the Agreements, the Parties agree first to negotiate in good faith to seek a resolution to the disputed issue(s). In the event that such good faith negotiations fail to resolve the dispute, the Parties shall submit the issue to arbitration, to be governed by the rules and procedures of the American Arbitration Association (AAA), by making written request to the AAA, requesting arbitration and requesting appointment of between one (1) and three (3) arbitrators. The cost of any such arbitration, including, if applicable, the arbitrators’ costs and fees, shall be borne solely by the non-prevailing Party. Arbitration shall take place in the county in which Discloser’s principal place of business is located.  The prevailing Party in arbitration shall further be entitled to an award of their costs and reasonable attorneys’ fees. The result of any arbitration shall be binding on all Parties and may be submitted to a court of competent jurisdiction and recorded as a judgment thereby. This requirement of arbitration is binding on the Parties, and all Parties agree that arbitration shall be the only means of formal dispute resolution available to them.

Class Action Waiver

You agree that any arbitration or proceeding shall be limited to the Dispute between us and you individually. To the full extent permitted by law, (i) no arbitration or proceeding shall be joined with any other; (ii) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be arbitrated or resolved on a class action-basis or to utilize class action procedures; and (iii) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf of the general public or any other persons. YOU AGREE THAT YOU MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST US ONLY IN YOUR INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING.

Equitable Relief

You acknowledge and agree that breach of this Agreement may cause irreparable harm to the Company , that the measure of that harm is uncertain and difficult to ascertain, and that the Company is entitled to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in addition to any damages resultant from breaches hereof.  We may, without waiving any other remedies under this Agreement, seek from any court having jurisdiction any interim, equitable, provisional, or injunctive relief that is necessary to protect our rights and property pending the outcome of the arbitration referenced above. You hereby irrevocably and unconditionally consent to the personal and subject matter jurisdiction of the federal and state courts in the State of New Mexico, Borough San Juan County for purposes of any such action by us.

Changes to Terms

We reserve the right, in our sole and absolute discretion, to change these Terms of Use. The most current version of the Terms of Use will supersede all previous versions. We encourage you to periodically review the Terms of Use and our Privacy Policy to stay informed of our updates.

More simply put: Every so often, we’re going to change these Terms!

Miscellaneous

Our failure to act on or enforce any provision of the Agreement shall not be construed as a waiver of that provision or any other provision in this Agreement. No waiver shall be effective against us unless made in writing, and no such waiver shall be construed as a waiver in any other or subsequent instance. Except as expressly agreed by us and you in writing, this Agreement constitutes the entire Agreement between you and us with respect to the subject matter, and supersedes all previous or contemporaneous agreements, whether written or oral, between the parties with respect to the subject matter. The section headings and More Simply Put paragraphs are provided merely for convenience and shall not be given any legal import.
