Acceptance of Terms
The information provided on the Site is not intended for distribution to or use by any person or entity in any jurisdiction or country where such distribution or use would be contrary to law or regulation or which would subject us to any registration requirement within such jurisdiction or country. Accordingly, those persons who choose to access the Site from other locations do so on their own initiative and are solely responsible for compliance with local laws, if and to the extent local laws are applicable.
Intellectual Property Rights
Provided that you are eligible to use the Site, you are granted a limited license to access and use the Site and to download or print a copy of any portion of the Content to which you have properly gained access solely for your personal, noncommercial use. We reserve all rights not expressly granted to you in and to the Site, the Content and the Marks.
If you provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current, or incomplete, we have the right to suspend or terminate your account and refuse any and all current or future use of the Site (or any portion thereof).
You may be required to register with the Site. You agree to keep your password confidential and will be responsible for all use of your account and password. We reserve the right to remove, reclaim, or change a username you select if we determine, in our sole discretion, that such username is inappropriate, obscene, or otherwise objectionable.
Fees and Payment
We accept the following forms of payment:
- American Express
You may be required to purchase or pay a fee to access some of our services. You agree to provide current, complete, and accurate purchase and account information for all purchases made via the Site. You further agree to promptly update account and payment information, including email address, payment method, and payment card expiration date, so that we can complete your transactions and contact you as needed. We bill you through an online billing account for purchases made via the Site. Sales tax will be added to the price of purchases as deemed required by us. We may change prices at any time. All payments shall be in U.S. dollars. You will be liable for any and all applicable local taxes based on your location and domicile.
You agree to pay all charges or fees at the prices then in effect for your purchases, and you authorize us to charge your chosen payment provider for any such amounts upon making your purchase.
We reserve the right to correct any errors or mistakes in pricing, even if we have already requested or received payment. We also reserve the right to refuse any order placed through the Site.
Course materials, including, but not limited to, textbooks, questions, answers, multimedia files, and ebooks, are accessible to students between the start and end dates, set by the instructor, of the courses for which access has been purchased. Unless explicitly stated and communicated otherwise to you, any purchase you make entitles you to use of the course materials for a period of five (5) months from the date of purchase. This restriction applies to single-semester access, multi-semester access, and Lifetime Of Edition access (where “Lifetime of Edition” means that the student has access to course materials whenever that student is enrolled in a course where the same edition of such materials is being used). Enrollments purchased directly from Edfinity on the Site are eligible for a refund if a student is dropped by their instructor within the first two weeks of purchase. Third-party enrollment purchases and purchases older than two weeks are non-refundable. Purchases are non-transferrable.
Purchase of Access Codes by Bookstores
Digital Delivery of Codes
Upon the completion of a purchase by a bookstore, we will provide access codes instantly and in a digital format. Bookstores are not required to meet a minimum order size for the purchase of access codes.
No Refund Policy and Inventory Management
Bookstores should note that all purchases of access codes are final, and we will not provide any refunds once the purchase has been completed. In light of this, bookstores are advised to purchase access codes as needed in order to minimize the risk associated with inventory. No minimum order size is required, providing bookstores the flexibility to purchase as few as one access code at a time, as students make their purchases. These will be instantly delivered upon each transaction.
Upfront Payment Requirement
All purchases of access codes by bookstores require payment in full at the time of purchase. We do not offer any credit facilities for the purchase of access codes. Again, there is no requirement for a minimum order size.
Institution or Campus-Specific Access Codes
By purchasing access codes, bookstores acknowledge that they have read, understood, and agreed to these terms, including the specific condition relating to the institution or campus-specific nature of the codes (Section 7.4). Any violation of these terms may result in immediate cessation of the provision of access codes to the bookstore involved, without the need for further notice by us.
Access Code Classification and Functionality
We provide a variety of access codes, each classified according to the range of functionalities it provides. The pricing for these codes is distinct and reflects the specific functionalities bundled with each class of code.
Please be advised that an access code will only enable the functionalities corresponding to its specific class. As such, an access code cannot be used to 'unlock' or access additional functionalities beyond what it has been specifically designed and priced for.
For example, if a bookstore purchases a class 'A' code, it will only enable class 'A' functionalities. Attempting to use a class 'A' code to unlock class 'B' functionalities will be unsuccessful.
This policy ensures that each class of access code maintains its specific value and functionality. Therefore, bookstores must ensure they purchase and provide the correct class of access codes, taking into consideration the functionalities that their customers (the students) require.
By purchasing access codes, bookstores acknowledge and agree to this stipulation along with all other terms listed. We reserve the right to take action, including but not limited to immediate cessation of the provision of access codes, should these terms be violated.

False Claims of Fraudulent Charges
Students are strictly prohibited from making false claims of fraudulent charges (“false claims”) related to their use of or access to the Edfinity platform. A claim is considered false if the student has accessed or used Edfinity services and then unjustifiably disputes the charge with their bank or credit card company. In the event that Edfinity determines, in its sole discretion, that a student has made a false claim, the student’s access to the Edfinity platform will be promptly suspended. To restore access, the student must:
- Formally withdraw the false claim in writing and provide Edfinity with a copy of this withdrawal.
- Notify their bank or credit card company of the withdrawal of the false claim.
- Pay the original student access fee along with any penalties or charges levied on Edfinity as a result of the false claim.
If the dispute is resolved in Edfinity’s favor, and Edfinity receives the payment from the bank or credit card company, the student may request a refund of the original payment. Such requests will be considered by Edfinity in accordance with its standard refund policies. Edfinity shall not be liable for any loss or inconvenience experienced by the student as a result of account suspension due to a false claim. Edfinity reserves the right to refuse service to any student who has previously made a false claim, even after the resolution of such a claim.
