Teachers who allow their account expire may no longer use any IE Class curriculum materials. Using our labs without a valid paid subscription is a violation of this agreement. We take intellectual property theft very seriously and we have progressive measures built in to identify schools and teachers using IE Class curriculum without a valid subscription.
Teachers and students may report unauthorized use of any IE Class material to firstname.lastname@example.org. We do provide cash rewards for information on the illegal and/or unauthorized use of IE Class curriculum in the classroom leading to the recovery of damages.

Student accounts must be assigned to individual students and used by only by the authorized student. See section VIII for more information.
IE Class, Inc. provides this web site, and its features, "As IS," "WITH ALL FAULTS" and the entire risk as to satisfaction, quality, performance, accuracy, and effort is with the subscriber.

Teachers interested in evaluating the features on the Teacher Center of IE Class and previewing the lessons are invited to sign up for an IE Class Demo Account. Demo accounts are for the teacher's use only and should not be used as part of the course curriculum. The teacher may create up to 10 student accounts in order to see how to setup classes and create student accounts. The demo student accounts must not be distributed to students. Each school may only create one demo account. Once the demo account has expired, a subscription must be purchased in order to continuing using IE Class. Signing up for multiple Demo accounts for the purpose of avoiding paying for a subscription is a violation of this agreement. Demo accounts that have been expired for 30 days without being upgraded will be removed from the system.
Paid Teacher Accounts
Each paid subscription will include up to three Teacher Accounts for a single campus. The second and third account will be issued upon request. One account will be designated as the primary account and will be responsible for payments and for approving the addition and/or removal of other teacher accounts. Teachers are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of their accounts and passwords and for restricting access to their computer while logged into the IE Class Teacher Center. Teachers also agree to accept full responsibility for all activities that occur on any student account they create.
Accounts are assigned to individual schools, not teachers. Teachers who move to another school that does not currently subscribe to IE Class will not qualify for the renewal rate.
Teacher Account Transfers
Teacher accounts may be transferred to other teachers at the school in which the account is registered. Accounts may not be transferred to any other schools.
Student accounts may only be created for High School students. Student accounts are assigned per school, not per teacher. If a school has more than one teacher account, the teachers must inform IE Class via email as to how the allotted student accounts should be divided among the school's teacher accounts. Teachers may create, delete, or reassign student accounts as needed. Under no circumstances may teachers create student accounts for other teachers, parents, or anyone who is not a high school student at the institution subscribing to the service. Student accounts are to only be assigned to a single student at a time and the first name of the student authorized to use the account must be entered in the account profile. Generic accounts may not be created, and two or more students may not share a single account. Student accounts that do not meet these guidelines are subject to suspension or deletion.
Any additional student accounts added to the teacher's subscription will become part of the Basic Subscription and will expire with the teachers subscription regardless of when the additional student account was added.
Payments are due in full 30 days from the activation date of the Teacher Account. Accounts not paid within 30 days are subject to suspension until account is paid and a 10% late payment fee. The school agrees to pay all collection expenses, including attorney fees and court costs should IE Class, Inc. be required to collect on their unpaid account.
After paying a standard subscription rate, current subscribers are eligible for the renewal rate. The current renewal rates are posted on the Subscribe to IE Class page. The renewal rate does not include additional student accounts that may have been added.
