These Terms & Conditions (these “Terms”) are a binding agreement between you and Savvy Education, Inc. (“Savvy,” “we,” or “us”). Please review these Terms carefully before using the Savvy website (the “Site”) and all related applications, software, and services (together, and collectively with the Site, the “Service”). By using the Service in any way, including, but not limited to visiting or browsing the Site, you agree to be bound by these Terms without modification.
1. Membership & Enrollment.
Other than browsing the Site, only registered members of Savvy (each, a “Member”) may use the Service. As a Member, you may not allow third parties to access the Service using your account. You are personally responsible for any use of the Service through your account, whether by you or a third party.
The Service is a membership service that is billed on a monthly basis. You will be billed every 30 days as long as you continue to be a member. We offer two types of membership plans: Flexible Memberships (month-to-month) and Annual Memberships (yearly). You may cancel your membership directly through your account profile, or by contacting the Savvy Reading support team, subject to the conditions set forth in Sections 1.1 and 1.2
1.1. Flexible Memberships. If you have a Flexible Membership, you must cancel your membership to stop the billing process. To avoid additional monthly charges, you must cancel your membership no later than 1 day before the start of the next month of classes. If you do not cancel at least 1 day before the start of the next month of classes, you will be charged at the regular monthly rate. If you cancel your Flexible Membership after a month begins, you will be charged for that month and then will be removed from future classes and billings.
1.2. Annual Memberships. If you register for an Annual Membership, you commit to a minimum of 12 months of service. At the end of the initial 12-month contract period, your membership becomes a Flexible Membership (month-to-month) unless you renew your Annual Membership.
If you cancel your Annual Membership during the first 30 days of the membership period, we will charge you the difference between the Flexible and Annual rates for one month plus a $25 cancellation penalty. If you cancel your Annual Membership during the initial 12-month contract period, but after the first 30 days of the membership period, we will charge you the lesser of (a) the remaining amount due for your 12-month contract, or (b) the difference between the Flexible and Annual rates for every month you have used the service under your Annual Membership plus a $25 cancellation penalty. You can cancel your membership at any point after the 12-month minimum contract period has ended as set forth in Section 1.1.

2.1. Content. For purposes of these Terms, “Content” includes, without limitation, any tools, services, advertisements, advice, suggestions, videos, audio clips, written comments, information, data, text, photographs, software, scripts, graphics, interactive features, and any other media generated, provided, or otherwise made accessible by Savvy, its content providers or other partners, or other Members.
2.2. Ownership of Materials. Content is provided by Savvy unless indicated otherwise.

Any additional services desired of a Savvy coach, employee, or contractor may be requested through emailing email@example.com.
