Terms & Conditions

Last Updated: May 21, 2018.

Welcome to LearningCart (“LearningCart”, “We”, “Us” or “Our”) owned and operated by Big Step Consulting, Inc. Below please find our Terms of Service (the “Terms”) to govern our relationship with our customers (“User(s)”). These Terms also apply on a limited basis to visitors of our website viewing its content.

We are proud of the platform we have created and love to see how our customers are able to grow with us. We provide our Users with the ability to market, sell and deploy educational products. We give Users the tools needed to succeed in this market. As part of this commitment, we provide Users with a LearningCart enabled website that allows them  to deliver great products to their customers.

Please read these Terms carefully because they govern User use of our website available at www.LearningCart.com (the “Site”) and the services and products available at or through the website. If you have any questions regarding these terms, please contact us at support@LearningCart.com.

To make these Terms easier to read, the Site, and our products and services and are collectively called the “Services.”  “Enabled Site” refers to the website we provide Users to market, sell and deploy educational products.

We know you’re eager to start building and creating, so we’ll make this simple:

  1. Make sure that none of the prohibited items listed under “Prohibited Activity” appear on your LearningCart enabled site or get linked to from the site (we’re referring to things like spam, viruses, or hate content).
  2. Please review our privacy policy. If you have a LearningCart enabled site,  make sure User(s) respect customers’ data and rights to online privacy.

Agreement to Terms
By accessing, installing or using our Services, User(s) agree to be bound by these Terms. If User(s) do not agree to these Terms, its simple: do not use the Services.

Changes to Terms or Services
We reserve the right modify the Terms and our Services at any time, in our sole discretion. While we are not required to provide notice, we will attempt to notify our clients via email when these terms change. It’s important that User(s) review the Terms whenever we modify them because continuing to use the Services after we have posted modified Terms on the Site indicates to us that User(s) agree to be bound by the modified Terms. The date of last revision will be shown at the top of this page. If User(s) don’t agree to be bound by the modified Terms, then please discontinue use of the Services immediately. 

Creating an Account
In order to access and use our Services, User organization will need to create an account (user “Account”). By creating an Account, you become a “User” and represent that you are eighteen (18) years of age or older and are not barred from using the Services under applicable law.

User organization’s Account should be that of the organization and set up by an authorized representative – do not use the Services under the name of another person with the intent to impersonate that person, or use a username that is subject to rights of another person without appropriate authorization. We have a strict “No Robots” policy. The authorized person creating an account must be a human to use the Services. Automated accounts are expressly prohibited. This policy also applies beyond Account creation to the general use of the Services. “Robot” (or automatic) activity is not allowed.

We reserve the right to suspend or terminate the Account if any information provided during the registration process or thereafter proves to be inaccurate, false or misleading or to reclaim any username that you create through the Services that violates these Terms. User’s organization’s personnel is responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of the passwords and Accounts, and agree to notify us if passwords are lost, stolen, or disclosed to an unauthorized third party, or otherwise may have been compromised. We encourage each User to regularly change its password to help ensure User(s) account’s security.

Plans and Payment Terms
LearningCart offers services under several different plans to suit User needs. In order to subscribe to our Services, Users will need a valid credit card. For more information about how we handle credit card and other personally identifying information you may provide us, please read our Privacy Policy at www.LearningCart.com/Content/Privacy.aspx.

Accounts will be billed monthly starting on the day the User signs up and then on that date each month thereafter. If the User upgrades its Account plan, the User will be billed immediately upon upgrading and then on that date on every month thereafter. Each bill paid ensures access to portions of the Services that require payment for the next month. There are no refunds or credits for partial months of service, upgrade/downgrade refunds, or refunds for months unused with an open Account. In order to treat everyone equally, no exceptions will be made.

Each LearningCart plan includes a specific number of active training users per month. Active users are calculated as the number of users that have accessed/registered for training or purchased an item during a calendar month.  If a User’s Account exceeds the number of users allowed on User current plan you will be billed either $4 per additional user OR User account will be automatically upgraded to the appropriate plan for the current and future months.   LearningCart will utilize the option that will incur the least cost for our customer for the month in question.   If a User account is upgraded and User does not require the additional active users or features for subsequent months, Users may request to downgrade User account as needed. Any requests to downgrade must be made 7 days before the new billing period begins. 

Downgrading a User Account may cause the loss of features available under the current plan. LearningCart is not, and will not be held to be, liable for such loss. If the billing method expires or changes, and the User does not edit or update User billing information or cancels its account, we will send you a single courtesy notice regarding billing information discrepancies. If a User fails to provide us with updated billing information more than three (3) days after notice is sent, LearningCart reserves the right to disable and terminate access to the account. User authorizes us to continue billing during this notice period, and User will remain responsible for any uncollected amounts.

If User has engaged us to provide development or professional services, 50% payment of the estimated project cost is due up front, remaining payment for those services is due upon completion. If a formal project proposal has been provided, then payment will be due based on the schedule specified in that scope of work agreement. If payment is not received 15 days after its due date then the client will automatically be billed via the payment method (credit card) we have on file.

Effective April 2018 any Users that subscribed to legacy plans not listed on our Pricing Page will have their account features and user limits mapped to the closest priced plan that is currently available. 

LearningCart will never store User customer’s credit card information. During payment, payment information is immediately transmitted to User payment gateway for authorization. During the course of using the LearningCart platform you may use certain features within our system to process credit card or other financial information.  It is User responsibility to ensure the security of that information and handle it consistently with the best practices outlined by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council.   Additionally User Merchant Services Provider or Payment Gateway may require a PCI scan of User LearningCart site in order to maintain compliance.  LearningCart will assist you with reviewing the results of a scan, but the cost and or scheduling such a scan are outside the scope of our terms.

Service Level
LearningCart guarantees 99% network uptime each month for all LearningCart Enabled Sites. In the event we are not able to meet our uptime guarantee the User will not be charged for that month of service. For the purposes of these Terms, “network uptime” is defined as the period during which a User’s webserver has external connectivity.  Scheduled after-hours maintenance is not included in network uptime calculations. Need for scheduled maintenance is rare, and Users will be notified in advance of any scheduled maintenance that will result in more than 30 minutes of system unavailability.
