When a church purchases a year license, the price is discounted significantly from the monthly cost. The Cancellation of the license nullifies that discount, and a fee of $200 for each downloaded month (full or partial) by any user on your account will be deducted from your refund. There is also a $50 cancellation fee. Cancellations are accepted within 60 days of account sign up or renewal with the following fees imposed: 1) $50.00 cancellation fee 2) $200.00 for each month’s curriculum previously downloaded. Only one cancellation per curriculum license is allowed per organization. The total refund due will equal the original license fee payment, less the $50 cancellation fee and any applicable download charges.
