Your access to and use of the Service is conditioned on your acceptance of and compliance with these Terms. These Terms apply to all visitors, users and others who access or use the Service.
By accessing or using the Service you agree to be bound by these Terms. If you disagree with any part of the terms then you may not access the Service.
In order to use the Service, you must:
- be at least eighteen (18) years old and able to enter into contracts; complete the account registration process; agree to these Terms; provide true, complete, and up-to-date contact and billing information;
By using the Service, you represent and warrant that you meet all the requirements listed above, and that you won’t use the Service in a way that violates any laws or regulations. Note that by representing and warranting, you are making a legally enforceable promise.

classline may refuse service, close accounts of any Members, and change eligibility requirements at any time.
When you sign up for an account and agree to these Terms, the Agreement between you and classline is formed, and the term of the Agreement (the “Term”) will begin. The Term will continue for as long as you have a classline account or until you or we terminate the Agreement in accordance with these Terms, whichever happens first. If you sign up for an account on behalf of a company or other entity, you represent and warrant that you have the authority to accept these Terms and enter into the Agreement on its behalf.
3. Closing Your Account
You or classline may terminate the Agreement at any time and for any reason by terminating your classline account or giving notice to the other party. We may suspend the Service to you at any time, with or without cause. If we terminate your account without cause, and your account is a paid account, we’ll refund a prorated portion of your monthly prepayment for a Monthly Plan. We won’t refund or reimburse you in any other situation, including if your account is suspended or terminated for cause, such as for a breach or violation of the Agreement. If your account is inactive for 12 or more months, we may terminate your account and you won’t be entitled to a refund. Once your account is terminated, you acknowledge and agree that we may permanently delete your account and all the data associated with it, including your Campaigns.
We may change any of the Terms by posting revised Terms on our Site. Unless you terminate your account, the new Terms will be effective immediately upon posting and apply to any continued or new use of the Service. We may change the Service or any features of the Service at any time, and we may discontinue the Service or any features of the Service at any time.
5. Account and Password
You’re responsible for keeping your account name and password confidential. You’re also responsible for any account that you have access to and any activity occurring in such account (other than activity that classline is directly responsible for that isn’t performed in accordance with your instructions), whether or not you authorized that activity. You’ll immediately notify us of any unauthorized access or use of your accounts. We’re not responsible for any losses due to stolen or hacked passwords. We don’t have access to your current password, and for security reasons, we may only provide you with instructions on how to reset your password. We have the right to update any of your contact information in your account for billing purposes. In addition, you represent and warrant that all information you provide to us when you establish an account, and when you access and use the Service, is and will remain complete and accurate.
6. Account Disputes
We don’t know the inner workings of your organization or the nature of your personal relationships. You won’t request access to or information about an account that’s not yours, and you’ll resolve any account-related disputes directly with the other party. We decide who owns an account based on a number of factors, including the content in that account, and the contact and profile information listed for that account. In cases where differing contact and profile information is present or we are unable to reasonably determine ownership, we’ll require you to resolve the matter through proper channels outside of classline.
When a dispute is identified, we may suspend any account associated with the dispute, including disabling login and sending capabilities, to protect the security and privacy of the data held within the account until the dispute is properly resolved.
7. Paid Plans
When you sign up for a paid monthly plan, you are required to self-select both your projected audience. Monthly Plan offers different pricing and feature options. Once you select your Monthly Plan, classline will never automatically upgrade or downgrade your Monthly Plan. So, give yourself room to grow if you’ll need it!
Before paying for your Monthly Plan for the first time, you will have an opportunity to preview the additional charges which would apply to your Monthly Plan should you incur them by exceeding your self-selected usage limits.
You will also have the option to downgrade to a lower tier at any time, but if you elect to downgrade during a billing cycle, your downgrade will not be effective until the end of that billing cycle, and you will still be charged for that entire billing cycle at the higher tier (including any applicable additional charges for the higher tier).
When you sign up for a Monthly Plan, you agree to monthly recurring billing, starting on the date you sign up. Billing occurs on the same day each month, based on the date that you started your Monthly Plan. Payments are due for any month on the same or closest date to the day you made your first monthly payment (the “Pay Date”). If any part of a month is included in the Term, then payment is required for the full month. If you exceed your self-selected usage limits for your Monthly Plan, then you’ll have to pay additional charges (as described above) for the prior billing cycle on or before the next Pay Date, even if the Term ends or you downgrade to a Free Plan before that payment is otherwise due. Billing for Monthly Plans may be paused, and you may choose to close your account permanently at any time.
The basic plan includes up to 1000 contacts and it is intendeed to use only by one teacher. If you exceed that number of contacts or users using the Software, you need to upgrade to a higher plan.
8. Audience and Archiving
You may have several types of contacts in your classline account, but only contacts that you can engage through the Service count as contacts in your “subscribers” for purposes of your Monthly Plan or Free Plan. Subscribed contacts count towards your audience. Pending, bounce, complaint, unsubscribed and deleted contacts do not count towards your audience.
9. Debit and Credit Cards
As long as you’re a Member with a Monthly Plan or otherwise have an outstanding balance with us, you’ll provide us with valid debit or credit card (“card”) information and authorize us to deduct your charges against that card. You’ll replace the information for any card that expires with information for a valid one. If your card is automatically replaced with a new card by a payment processor, you acknowledge and agree that we’re authorized to deduct any charges on your account against the new card. Anyone using a card represents and warrants that they are authorized to use that card, and that any and all charges may be billed to that card and won’t be rejected. If we’re unable to process your card order, we’ll try to contact you by email and may suspend your account until your payment can be processed.
We’ll give you a refund for a prepaid month if we stop providing the Service and terminate your account without cause. You won’t be entitled to a refund from us under any other circumstances. We may, at our sole discretion, offer a refund, discount or credit.
11. Billing Changes
We may change our fees, including our charges for Monthly Plans at any time by posting a new pricing structure to our classline Site or in your account and/or sending you a notification by email.
