Terms of Service
Effective Date: November 5, 2020
Acceptance of the Terms of Service
Thank you for visiting our websites located at toytheater.com, member.toytheater.com, classplayground.com and libraryforkids.com, which we refer to collectively below as the “Services”. Through the Services, Toy Theater, a sole proprietorship (referred to as “Toy Theater”, “we”, or “us”), delivers educational content. We offer the Services to you, your children and student(s)(referred to as “you” or a “user”) under the Terms of Service described below. These Terms of Service govern access to and use of the Services by you. By using and accessing the Services, you, on your own behalf and on behalf of your children agree to these Terms of Service. You acknowledge and agree that your access to and use of the Services are valuable benefits that you receive by agreeing to and complying with these Terms of Service. If you do not agree to these Terms of Service, you should not use the Services.
Modifications to the Terms of Service and to the Services
Toy Theater may, in our sole discretion, amend these Terms of Service at any time. Any updates will be effective when posted on the Services. Users are responsible for periodically reviewing the Terms of Service to be aware of changes. By continuing to use the Services, you agree to such changes. The Services, and the information and material on the Services, may be changed by us at any time. Toy Theater will not be liable if, for any reason, all or any part of the Services is restricted to users or unavailable at any time.
The safety and security of your personal information also depends on you. You are responsible for your use of the Services. You must ensure that anyone who accesses the Services through your internet connection is aware of these Terms of Service and complies with them. It is a condition of using the Services that all the information you provide on the Services and/or to us related to the Services is correct, current, and complete. If such information has changed, contact us immediately at the contact information below.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure. Although we do our best to protect user information, we cannot guarantee the security of your information transmitted to our Services. Any transmission of information is at your own risk. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the Services.
Account Terms. To access certain parts of the Services, such as our membership specific Services provided at member.toytheater.com (“Membership Services”), you will need to create an account (“Account”) that requires a username and password and other credentials (“Login Information”). Except as otherwise provided in these Terms of Service, you will not share your Login Information with anyone else or let anyone else use your Account. You are responsible for any activities that happen through your Account. Toy Theater reserves the right to terminate your Membership Services and remove your Account at any time and for any reason.
In order to access the Membership Services, you will need to purchase a subscription (“Subscription”). In order to purchase a Subscription, you must be at least eighteen (18) years of age. A Subscription provides you with access to one (1) Account. Each Account includes one (1) “Adult User” (who must be an individual at least eighteen (18) years of age) and up to thirty (30) “Secondary Users”, all of whom may access the Membership Services simultaneously.
When creating an Account, Adult Users will create two sets of Login Information: (1) the “Admin Login” which may only be used by the Adult User associated with the Account and which may not be shared with anyone else; and (2) the “Student Login” which will consist of a username and an encrypted password created by the Adult User. The Adult User may share the Student Login credentials with the Secondary Users. The Adult User controls and is responsible for the Secondary Users’ access to and use of the Account and the Membership Services. Only the Adult User may modify, customize or otherwise control the content available to the Secondary Users. By purchasing a Subscription, you represent and warrant that no Secondary Users’ personal information will be provided to Toy Theater, including the names or email addresses of Secondary Users under the age of 13.
Subscription Fees. In consideration for your Subscription, you will pay a monthly subscription fee (each month being a “Subscription Period”) at Toy Theater’s then current membership rates (“Subscription Fee”). Toy Theater may, in our sole discretion, change the Subscription Fee at any time with notice to you, which change shall be effective at the end of your then current Subscription Period. If you do not agree to the change in your Subscription Fee you may cancel your Subscription at no charge. Toy Theater does not provide price protection or refunds for existing subscribers in the event of a price drop or promotional offering for new subscribers. Failure to pay your Subscription Fee when due may result in cancellation of your Subscription and revocation of access to your Account.
Subscription Renewal and Cancellation. Your Subscription will renew automatically upon the expiration of the then current Subscription Period, unless cancelled by you in accordance with these Terms of Service. You may cancel your Subscription at any time prior to the expiration of the then current Subscription Period through your Account page. You will continue to have access to your Account until the end of the current Subscription Period, after which you will no longer be charged a Subscription Fee.
