5. Account and User Registration; Termination
To use Edified's LMS, you must register on the Website for a free trial or pay the subscription fee corresponding to your desired subscription service and term. You must first select between a monthly subscription service and an annual subscription service and then complete the required information on the Website to setup an online account. The day that you created your account will be considered the effective date of your term as your service will commence immediately. Individual user accounts may only be created for one named individual. Edified may, at its sole discretion, allow individual users to select between specific types of subscriptions to access various features, resources, and services offered through the LMS.
All individual users will be able to manage their accounts and cancel their subscriptions at any time. For both the annual and monthly subscription options, individual users will be billed through the user's recurring credit card payments. Individual users will be charged a monthly subscription fee of $19.95 and an annual subscription fee of $189.00 for full access and use of the Website and the LMS. Your subscription will renew automatically each month on either the same day of each month or the last day of each month until you cancel your subscription. The cancellation will be effective at the end of the term in which you cancelled your subscription.
By registering for a free trial, you will have limited access and use of the Website and the LMS on a trial basis at no charge until either your free trial period expires or you register for one of the paid subscription services. You may cancel your free trial at any time before it expires.
To use Edified's LMS, multi-user accounts need to be registered. Edified may manually create specific portals for each multi-user organization, such as a school district or a school, based on the organization's specifications and preferences. Edified may also register one or more of the users as Site Administrators of each multi-user organization to manage certain aspects of their portal as well as their users. Edified may, at its sole discretion, allow multi-user organizations, to create specific user accounts within the organization's portal, and to assign one or more of their users the role of Site Administrator. The Site Administrators have administration access over their specific organization's portal to allow the organization to add and remove users, assign courses, create and assign learning paths, track the progress of their users, and run standard reports. Organizations may sign-in to their portal from the Website or their own custom portal sign-in page.
The subscription-based model for multi-user organizations will be based on tiers, which will dictate the number of users that will be registered in each organization's portal and which users are allowed to access the LMS. The number of users that will be registered in each organization's portal and be allowed to access the LMS will not exceed the number of accounts paid for under the organization's subscription. All of the organization's users must have their own unique identifier, such as their school email address. The multi-user organizations may be billed through credit cards or purchase orders on an annual basis or based on the specific terms set up by their Edified sales consultant. Multi-user organizations may agree on standard fee schedules when registering for an account and creating an organization portal. Edified reserves the right to decide whether they will negotiate with the organizations regarding the standard fee schedules.
If the organization pays with a purchase order, the organization will be billed annually accord. Multi-user organizations will be charged tiered fees based on the number of users associated with the organization's portal. The multi-user organization subscription will renew automatically each year on the renewal date specified on the invoice until the organization cancels their subscription. The cancellation will be effective at the end of the term in which you cancelled your subscription.

Such charges shall be made in advance, either monthly, annually or in accordance with any different billing frequency stated in the applicable order form.

Unless otherwise stated in the order form, invoiced charges are due no later than 30 (thirty) days from the invoice date. You are responsible for providing complete and accurate billing and contact information to us and notifying us of any changes to such information.
