Your relationship with Whiznook
These Terms define the relationship between you and Whiznook. When we speak of “Whiznook,” “we,” “us,” and “our,” we mean Whiznook, Inc and its affiliates. You are referred to as “you” or “your” in these Terms.
THESE TERMS ARE A BINDING LEGAL AGREEMENT BETWEEN YOU AND WHIZNOOK. BY VISITING THE WHIZNOOK WEBSITE, PURCHASING OR USING OUR GAMES, OTHER SERVICES, OR USING ANY PART OF THE WEBSITE, YOU ENGAGE IN OUR “SERVICES” AND YOU AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THESE TERMS.
We will provide the most current Terms and Conditions on this page and it is your responsibility to check this page periodically for changes. Please bookmark these Terms so that you can easily access them. If changes are material, we may ask you to re-accept the Terms.
If you don’t agree to all provisions of these Terms, do not access any part of our Website, or purchase or use our Services.
Besides these Terms, we also provide a Privacy Notice. When you use our Services, you acknowledge that our Privacy Notice applies.
Please read the Privacy Notice to better understand how we collect, store, use, disclose, and process your personal information when providing our Services to you, and your rights and choices concerning your information.
If you do not want Whiznook to collect, store, use, or share your information in the ways described in our Privacy Notice, do not access any part of our Website, or use our Services.
We are excited to help you and your team build skills with our games, but there are some limits on who can use our Services. You must be at least the age of a legal adult where you reside and must be capable of entering into a legally binding agreement to use our Services. In most states, that age is 18.
What you can expect from us
We may change our Terms or Services without notice
We are constantly improving our Services to advance team intelligence so teams can increase their productivity and innovative proficiency. As part of this continual improvement, we sometimes add, update or remove information about our Services, features, functionalities, and site content, which may increase or decrease limits to our Services, and start offering new Services or stop offering old ones. We also may change the description, or price of our Services.
We may also make changes to our Services or your ability to access our Services in situations such as addressing errors, correcting inaccuracies in information on our site, preventing abuse, responding to legal requirements, or addressing security and operability issues.
We may make these changes with no notice to you and your continued use of the site is acceptance of new Terms or increasing the scope of our Terms to cover new Services.
- After you agree to be bound by these Terms, we may add new Services or site features, or make other changes to our Services without notice. These new and/or changed Services are covered by these Terms.
- After the first time you agree to be bound by these Terms, we may post new Terms and may not provide you notice of these changes. Your continued use of our Services after the effective date of the new Terms and Conditions, is your agreement to be bound by the new Terms and Conditions.
We may limit or deny use of our Services
We may refuse or limit the sale or the use of our Services to any person, geographic region, or jurisdiction and may do this on a case-by-case basis. We may also limit the quantities of any Services that we offer. These restrictions may apply to orders already placed. In the event that we change or cancel an order we may try to notify you by contacting you using the contact information provided at the time the order was made.
We may monitor, edit, or remove content that we determine is unlawful, objectionable, or violates any party’s intellectual property or these Terms.
Any offer for our Service is void where legally prohibited.
We may cancel orders based on inaccurate information
Occasionally we may find inaccuracies in the information on our site. If that happens, we may correct these inaccuracies, which may result in canceled orders. When we need to cancel an order, we will attempt to notify you using the contact information you provided with the order.
We may require you to follow our defined process for returns
We do not allow returns of Whiznook games. The Whiznook portal subscription that provides the results of game playing may be returned within 30 days of starting your subscription. To return the Whiznook portal subscription you should cancel the subscription.
We may provide access to third-party tools or content not covered by these Terms
We may provide you with access to third-party tools or links to third-party sites that are not part of our Services or covered by these Terms. We do not monitor nor have any control over these tools and sites and we do not provide any warranty or endorsement for them. If you use these tools or visit these sites you do so at your own risk and discretion. We advise you take the time to be familiar with and approve the terms of the third-party tool or content providers, including their Privacy Notice.
We will automatically charge you a periodic fee for your subscriptions
Whiznook offers subscriptions so a team administrator may access the team’s portal to view the results from games played by the team, and get recommendations for additional training and other useful information. If you purchase a subscription to Whiznook, then by clicking the purchase button you are requesting that we begin supplying the subscription services immediately and are entering into a periodic subscription contract with us. You are also authorizing us to charge your payment instrument, such as a credit card, for a periodic subscription fee at the rate quoted at the time of purchase. Subscription charges will be applied to the payment instrument you provide when you start your subscription (or to a different payment instrument, if you change your account information). Please note that prices and charges are subject to change. If Whiznook makes a change to the periodic subscription rate, we will let you know in advance.
Your subscription will automatically renew at the start of each billing period unless and until you terminate your subscription, or we terminate it. You must cancel your subscription before it renews each billing period, otherwise payment of the next billing period’s subscription fees will be taken automatically via your chosen payment method.
SUBSCRIPTION PAYMENTS ARE NONREFUNDABLE AND THERE ARE NO REFUNDS OR CREDITS FOR PARTIALLY USED SUBSCRIPTION PERIODS, EXCEPT FOR CUSTOMERS THAT CANCEL WITHIN 30 DAYS OF THEIR INITIAL PURCHASE, AS EXPLAINED BELOW.
Subscription services may be cancelled within 30 days from the date of your purchase and you may obtain a refund of your initial payment.
Whiznook may occasionally offer a one-time or limited-time bonus to current subscribers or to those who agree to start a subscription. You understand that these items, which will generally be marked as “bonus” items, will not be a part of your ongoing subscription.
