Member Website Usage
TeachMsOffice hereby grants each subscriber a limited, non-exclusive, non-sublicensable and non-transferable license to access the content and information available in our subscriber’s members section according to the provisions contained herein, and subject to the payment of the applicable subscription fees and adherence to these Terms of Service. This includes the content that is viewable to subscribers after they login if they have an active account at TeachMsOffice. Having an active account is reliant upon the full payment of a subscription at TeachMsOffice and adherence to these Terms of Service.
Each multi-user account may only allow its employees or agents to access the subscriptions under the multi-user account. Once a person is no longer an employee or agent of the company or person who paid for the multi-user account or license they will no longer have access to the multi-user subscription from TeachMsOffice. Each multi-user account has a limited number of subscriptions associated with it, dependent upon the number of subscriptions that were purchased for that account. These subscriptions may not be used or accessed by more than the authorized number of users, which is the number of accounts or subscriptions that were purchased on the account.
The purchase of a subscription to TeachMsOffice does not confer any ownership interest or rights to the contents of the website.
You, the user, are not allowed or permitted to download, distribute, or transfer any content contained on or from TeachMsOffice. This includes but is not limited to the video tutorials and downloadable files. You may also not give anyone other than yourself access to your account on TeachMsOffice. TeachMsOffice is not responsible for you being locked out of your account as a result of such actions. If you forget your login information we cannot ensure that you will be able to log back into that account as we do not have access to your password; the only thing TeachMsOffice may do is to give you a temporary password that is emailed to the email address associated with your account.

TeachMsOffice may modify access to features of a specific account or all accounts and or subscriptions on the website as needed. Reasons for this include but are not limited to updating the website, modifying specific content, or performing site maintenance.
From time to time, users or subscribers may be unable to access any or all parts of the website due to conditions beyond TeachMsOffice’s control. Such conditions include, but are not limited to: force majeure, acts of God, power outages, and the acts of computer hackers and others acting outside the law. Also, from time to time, access may be unavailable due to software issues, server downtime, increased Internet traffic or downtime, programming errors, regular maintenance of the system, and other related reasons. In response to any unavailability of the website to its users or subscribers, TeachMsOffice will take all commercially reasonable steps to ensure access is restored within a reasonable period of time. The term “commercially reasonable,” as used in these Terms of Service, shall mean reasonable efforts taken in good faith without an unduly or burdensome use or expenditure of time, resources, personnel or money.
Users are solely responsible for ensuring that they have sufficient and compatible hardware, software, telecommunications equipment and internet service necessary for use of this website. If a user is not on a broadband or faster internet connection it is not recommended that they purchase a subscription to this website. No refunds will be given to a user solely based on the fact that they have a slow or inconsistently operable internet connection.
TeachMsOffice reserves the right to cancel any membership or subscription or account on the website at any time if it believes that the user, account, member, or subscriber has breached, is planning to breach or may breach these Terms of Service. TeachMsOffice may cancel any membership or subscription or account if the user of the account fails to pay for the subscription or if there is suspicion of the user engaging in illegal activity in regards to his/her account.
TeachMsOffice may store the keywords and text that you use in your searches within this site. If done, this is to ensure we are offering our users exactly the tutorials that they want and need.
Fees, Renewals, and Refunds
All purchases of subscription services on TeachMsOffice are billed on a recurring basis unless otherwise explicitly mentioned. Recurring or automatic billing is the automatic billing of an account every billing period. A billing period is the length of the subscription; for instance, this could be for one month, six months, twelve months, or a different length of time. On the last day of the current billing period the user will be billed for the next billing period, which is the length of the last billing period or the length of the billing period as chosen by the user in their account settings. This process shall be referred to as “subscription renewal.”
Users have the ability to turn off the subscription renewal feature that is mentioned above. However, by default, on the initial purchase of a subscription, the subscription renewal feature will be enabled. It is the sole responsibility of the user to disable the subscription renewal feature in their account settings.
It is up to the purchaser of the account to turn the automatic subscription renewal feature off before the next billing date if they do not want to be billed for the service for the next period. Subscription fees cannot be refunded after they have been charged on an account; this includes for the initial purchase of a subscription, a manual update of a subscription, and an automatic subscription renewal.
Subscriptions that are automatically renewed will be billed on the same day of the month that the subscription was purchased, where possible. If there is no corresponding date the subscription will be billed on the last day of the next month. For instance, a one month subscription that was purchased on May 31 would end on June 30.
TeachMsOffice may increase or decrease subscription fees at any time for any reason. If fees are changed a notice will be emailed to current subscribers or posted on the website.
If the automatic subscription renewal feature is unable to bill you due to outdated credit card information or any other reason, it will be solely up to you to manually update your subscription. This means that it will be solely up to you to purchase another subscription through the My Account page. Once another subscription has been purchased, if the automatic subscription renewal feature is enabled, the automatic subscription renewal feature will continue to work, meaning that when the next billing period arises, you will be automatically billed. No refunds will be allowed for trial periods or discounted subscription prices.
If a user does not pay via paypal or credit card, the automatic subscription renewal feature may not work. If you want to ensure that you can use this feature, pay by credit card.
Trial Periods and Discounts
Trial periods and discounts are only good for the time period that is associated with the specific trial period or discount. Unless otherwise mentioned, after the end of a discount or trial period, the user may be billed at the regular price for the subscription and this billing may occur via the automatic subscription renewal feature.
