PRICES, PAYMENT, AND TAXES
Prices and Payment: All prices are effective December 18, 2020, and are subject to change without notice. All orders must be accompanied by a form of payment. TCI accepts district and school purchase orders, for which payment terms are net 30 from the invoice date. Individual orders must be prepaid by check, money order, or credit card.
Sales Tax: Sales tax will be applied as appropriate to CA, FL, IL, KY, MI, MO, NJ, OH, OK, PA, SC, TX, VA, and WA orders, unless TCI has a current copy of your tax exemption certificate.
Individual Orders: It is illegal to extend a district’s exemption status to an individual paying by personal credit card or check, even if the purchase is made for the benefit of the school.
RETURNS AND EXCHANGES
Returns and Exchanges: TCI cannot accept the following items for return or exchange: bent, torn, soiled, marked, or stamped items; opened shrink-wrapped items; items damaged due to insufficient packaging when returned; products received at events or conferences; science materials kits; and 1-year teacher or student licenses.
You may return or exchange any other purchased, unused product in a saleable condition within 60 days of the invoice date of your order. To request a return authorization, please go to https://shop.teachtci.com/manage-orders. If you wish to exchange an item, TCI must receive payment for shipping and any difference in price before processing the order.
Refunds and Credits: If you paid by credit card, your account will be credited for the returned item(s) within 30 days of receiving the return. For all other forms of payment, TCI will issue a credit for returned item(s). Credits can remain on the account for up to 6 months, at which time a refund will be made by check.
Acceptance of License Terms: Teachers’ Curriculum Institute’s (“TCI”) willingness to offer online licenses (“Licenses”) that permit access to its online Application service and content (“Application”) is expressly conditioned on your acceptance of the terms set forth herein. You shall be deemed to have accepted these terms by either: (i) placing an order for the Licenses or any other TCI product, (ii) submitting payment for the Licenses or any other TCI product, (iii) accessing the Application by following the instructions emailed to you following your purchase of a License or (iv) distributing the Application access link to any teachers or other end users who will use the Licenses. These terms supersede all prior understandings, assurances, orders, and offers, whether written or oral, and shall exclusively govern the relationship between you and TCI in regard to the Licenses. Any amendments or additional terms must be agreed to by TCI in writing. The term “you” as used herein shall include any individuals purchasing or accessing the Licenses as well as any schools, school districts, education centers, or other entities for whom such individuals may be accessing the Application on behalf of.
License Delivery: For each License order, you will receive a delivery confirmation email. Designated License contacts will receive an email that will contain either an invitation to create an account or an option to sign in if the License contact already has an account. The designated License contact will be the person submitting payment unless you notify TCI of the contact name and email address to whom TCI should send this email. Designated License contacts who do not have Admin access to TCI’s online Application service will need to sign and return a TCI Administrator Agreement before being granted full access to the Admin tool.
License Terms: TCI defines the school year as July 1 to June 30 (“school year”), and License durations align with this definition of the school year. The order date of a License is the TCI invoice date. To prevent Licenses from expiring in the middle of a school year, Licenses with an order date in the current calendar year will expire on June 30 of the following year. For example, a 1-year subscription with an order date of January 1, 2019 will expire on June 30, 2020. A 1-year License with an order date of December 1, 2019, will also expire on June 30, 2020. Licenses can only be assigned to one user at a time; they cannot be shared. Upon expiration of a License, access will be blocked. License assignments reset annually on June 30. TCI only stores student scores and notebook entries for the current school year. Customers are responsible for downloading any student scoring and notebook data before June 30 for their records.
Modification of Application: TCI reserves the right to modify the Application at any time during the term of any License for any reason whatsoever, including, without limitation, updating, correcting or general design modifications.

TCI specifically disclaims all warranties, express or implied, including warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, title and non-infringement of third party rights.
