PLEASE READ THE TERMS OF USE (“AGREEMENT”) CAREFULLY BEFORE USING THE SERVICES OFFERED BY PRODIGY EDUCATION INC. THIS AGREEMENT CONTAINS A PROVISION THAT REQUIRES YOU TO RESOLVE ALL DISPUTES WITH PRODIGY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND THROUGH FINAL AND BINDING ARBITRATION, RATHER THAN JURY TRIALS OR CLASS ACTIONS, AND ALSO LIMITS THE REMEDIES AVAILABLE TO YOU IN THE EVENT OF A DISPUTE.

(“Prodigy,” “Company,” “we,” or “us”) provides at prodigygame.com or any other Prodigy location that links to this Agreement (collectively, the “Services”).

All such additional terms posted or provided to you during your use of the Services are hereby incorporated by reference into and form a part of this Agreement.

User accounts

We currently offer accounts to the following types of individuals or organizations that use the Services (each a “User,” and collectively “Users”): 

  • “Parent Users” or “Parents” (including parents and guardians of Student Users). 
  • “Student Users” or “Students” (a child and/or student who uses the Services). 
  • “Teacher Users” or “Teachers” (a teacher, administrator, or other school official that opens a Teacher account to use the Services, including those with the ability to add Student User accounts). A Teacher User affiliated with an educational institution must have the approval of the institution before using Prodigy with its Students, and is responsible for obtaining any necessary approvals from their educational institution and Parents required to use and provide information through the Services. 

A Student User account can be linked to one or more Parent Users or Teacher Users in order to facilitate a continuous learning journey for that Student User both in and outside of the classroom. Any Parent or Teacher Users linked to that Student User account will have access to the information in that account, including activity recorded both in and outside of the classroom. Parent Users and Teacher Users are responsible for the acts of Student Users linked to their account.

We reserve all rights not expressly granted to you in the Services and the Prodigy Content (as defined below). We may also impose limits on certain services and/or features or restrict your access to parts or all of the Services, in our sole discretion and without notice.  

You are solely responsible for any activity that occurs through your account, for maintaining the confidentiality of your account information and password, and for restricting access to your account and your computer. If your account has been compromised or if you suspect unauthorized use of your account, notify us immediately at the contact information provided at the bottom of this Agreement. Without limiting the foregoing, Parent Users and Teacher Users who create or are linked to accounts for minor children are responsible for the acts and activities of those children in connection with the use of the Services, and that this Agreement and Prodigy’s Privacy Policy will apply to those minor children’s use of the Services.

Prohibited conduct

Fees, payment, and renewing subscriptions

Fees and payment

There is a fee for some of our Services, including a subscription to certain Services. Where the fee is a subscription, we may, in our sole discretion, change the fee to be charged for your next subscription period, provided we first notify you by email in accordance with applicable law. Where the fee is for something other than a subscription, we will notify you in advance of any rate changes. 

All fees are payable in accordance with the payment terms in effect when payment is due. We may offer some promotional trials or time-limited discounts or offers for certain Services or Users from time to time. If you sign up or register through a trial, promotional, or discount event, your rights of use will be subject to and limited by the terms of the trial, promotion, or discount offer and will terminate or renew in accordance with the terms of the offer or any additional terms communicated related to the trial, promotion, or discount offer. If you do not pay fees applicable to the Services you may not use or access those paid Services features. Unless otherwise expressly stated in the policies applicable to a Service, any fees paid for Services are non-refundable, to the fullest extent permitted by law.

Where a Service has a fee, you must use either a credit card or other acceptable or approved payment method (such as through a third-party app store, when you purchase a Service through our app) to activate and maintain that Service. You will be responsible for the fees and all applicable taxes for any Service ordered. If we do not receive payment from your credit card or payment method, you agree to pay all amounts due hereunder upon demand and will be solely responsible for any dispute with your payment provider. Should your credit card or payment method be denied, we reserve the right to recharge the credit card or payment method for any outstanding amounts. You will not be charged more than the amount of the fees for the Service(s) you have purchased. 

Note, Prodigy does NOT directly store credit card information - all credit card information and transactions are stored by third-party payment providers that process payments on our behalf. You agree in the event one of our payment processors experiences a data breach affecting your information through no fault of Prodigy, Prodigy will in no way be responsible or liable to you for any such breach.

Subscription and renewal

By purchasing a subscription, you agree that we may renew your subscription automatically for the same subscription term on the day after your previous subscription ends, if and when applicable. When applicable, your subscription will automatically renew unless you cancel your account prior to the renewal date through the procedures described in the “Subscription Cancellation” section below. We will charge your credit card (or the other method of payment initially used by you) each year, month or other applicable period (depending on the payment term that you selected) for the then-current applicable price. You authorize us to charge you through the credit card or other acceptable or approved payment method that you used when subscribing to the Services. 

For consumers residing in Quebec: All subscriptions are offered for an indeterminate term. Subscriptions remain valid until canceled or terminated, in accordance with this Agreement, and therefore are not subject to renewal per se. Subscription fees will be charged in accordance with the payment term selected by you: monthly, yearly, or other applicable period.

Subscription cancellation

You may cancel your subscription and avoid future billing online via your Parent or Teacher account, by contacting our customer support team at the contact information below, or, if you purchased your subscription through a third-party app store, through the respective app store settings. If you do so, we will endeavor to close your account as soon as possible; regardless, we will not charge you for another subscription period if you cancel your subscription prior to its renewal date. For consumers residing in Quebec, we will not charge you any subscription fees following cancellation of your subscription.

For all accounts, you will continue to have access to your account for the period of time that has already been prepaid. After you cancel your account, we will not charge you any subscription fees after the expiration of your then-current subscription period. In any event, you will be able to continue to use the Services throughout the remainder of the subscription period for which you have already paid. You will also be able to continue to use the parts of the Services that do not require a paid subscription.

For consumers residing in Quebec

Important health warning about photosensitive seizures 

A very small percentage of people may experience a seizure when exposed to certain visual images, including flashing lights or patterns that may appear in video games or other online activities. Even people who have no history of seizures or epilepsy may have an undiagnosed condition that can cause these “photosensitive epileptic seizures” while playing video games. You and your Students should immediately stop playing and consult a doctor if you or they experience any symptoms such as lightheadedness, altered vision, eye or face twitching, jerking or shaking of arms or legs, disorientation, confusion, or momentary loss of awareness. Seizures may also cause loss of consciousness or convulsions that can lead to injury from falling down or striking nearby objects. Parents and Teachers should watch for or ask their children about the above symptoms. You can reduce risk of photosensitive epileptic seizures by taking the following precautions: 

  • Play in a well-lit room
  • Do not play if you are drowsy or fatigued

If you or any of your relatives have a history of seizures or epilepsy, consult a doctor before playing video games or other screen-focused activities.

Privacy

For information about Prodigy’s treatment of personal information, please review our current Privacy Policy, which is hereby incorporated by reference. 

Where a U.S.-based Teacher User agrees to this Agreement on behalf of their educational institution, Prodigy agrees that it is under the direct control of the educational institution with regard to that institution’s Students’ personally identifiable information as defined under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (“FERPA”), except to the extent that a Student is linked with a Parent User who then will have the ability to consent to further use of the Student’s personally identifiable information. Prodigy will jointly comply with FERPA, along with the educational institution, by complying with requests from the educational institutions and relevant Teacher, Parent, and Student Users, as applicable, to access, correct, and disclose Student personally identifiable information in accordance with this Agreement and the Privacy Policy.

Advertising

We may present contextual references to, or advertisements for, our paid membership option to Users while they are using the Services, including Student Users when playing the Prodigy game either at home or in a school setting. 

These advertisements are first-party and contextual: that is, advertisements are only for Prodigy’s Services, and the same advertisement is delivered to similarly-situated Students based on their progress in the Prodigy game or on similar factors that apply to all Student Users. Prodigy does not use personal information collected from Students to individually target this advertising, and does not allow third-party targeted advertising providers to place cookies on or collect information from the Prodigy game or other areas of the Services directed to Students.

Third-party services

The Services may contain links to third-party websites or services (“Third-Party service(s)”) not owned or controlled by Prodigy, or our Services may be accessed by logging in through a Third-Party service (e.g., Clever or Google). The inclusion of Third-Party services does not imply affiliation or endorsement of such services by Prodigy. Prodigy does not control these Third-Parties or their services and therefore when you access or use their services, you do so at your own risk and agree without limitation that Prodigy is not responsible for such Third-Party services. You represent and warrant you have read and agree to be bound by all applicable policies, in addition to your obligations under this Agreement. Prodigy has no control over, and assumes no responsibility for, the content, accuracy, privacy policies, or practices of or opinions expressed in any Third-Party service or by any third party. In addition, Prodigy will not and cannot monitor, verify, censor or edit the content of any third party or their service(s). By using Prodigy’s Services, you expressly relieve and hold us harmless from any and all liability arising from your use of any Third-Party service(s).

Your interactions with organizations and/or individuals found on or through the Services, including payment and delivery of goods or services, and any other terms, conditions, warranties or representations associated with such dealings, are solely between you and such organizations and/or individuals. You should make whatever investigation you feel necessary or appropriate before proceeding with any online or offline transaction with any of these third parties. You agree Prodigy shall not be responsible or liable for any loss or damage incurred as the result of any such dealings. If there is a dispute between participants on any part of the Services subject to this Agreement, or between Users and any third party, you understand and agree Prodigy has no interest therein and is under no obligation to become involved. 

Governing law

For Users residing in Quebec: This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the Province of Quebec and the laws of Canada applicable therein, without regard to the conflict of laws provisions thereof. For all purposes of this Agreement, the parties consent to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue in the courts of Quebec in the Judicial District of Montreal.

For all other Users residing in Canada: This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the Province of Ontario without regard to the conflict of laws provisions thereof. Any dispute arising from or relating to the subject matter or this Agreement shall be finally settled by arbitration in Toronto, Ontario, using the English language in accordance with the Arbitration Act of Ontario. Notwithstanding the foregoing, each party shall have the right to institute an action in a court of proper jurisdiction for injunctive or other equitable relief at any time. For all purposes of this Agreement, the parties consent to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue in the courts of Ontario.

For all other Users: This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the state of Delaware without regard to its conflict of laws principles. 

Arbitration and dispute resolution; class action waiver

This provision allows us to promptly and efficiently resolve any dispute that may arise between us. You and Prodigy agree that any dispute, controversy, or claim under any legal theory, including but not limited to any federal or state statutory claims, common law claims, including those based in tort, fraud, misrepresentation, or contract, arising out of or relating in any way to the Services or these Terms or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation, formation, or the validity thereof, and the issue of arbitrability (collectively, the Dispute), you and Prodigy agree to the following resolution process. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, including issues relating to the scope, conscionability, severance, and enforceability of this arbitration agreement. The parties acknowledge that this Agreement evidences a transaction in interstate commerce. Notwithstanding the substantive law applicable to any arbitration, any arbitration conducted pursuant to this Agreement shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act and the Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this agreement to arbitrate.

The parties agree that good-faith informal efforts to resolve disputes often can result in a prompt, low-cost, and mutually beneficial outcome. The parties therefore agree that, before either party demands arbitration against the other, we will personally meet and confer, via telephone or videoconference, in a good-faith effort to resolve informally any claim covered by this arbitration agreement. If you are represented by counsel, your counsel may participate in the conference, but you shall also fully participate in the conference. The party initiating the claim must give notice to the other party in writing of their intent to initiate an informal dispute resolution conference, which shall occur within 30 days after the other party receives such notice, unless an extension is mutually agreed upon by the parties. To notify Prodigy that you intend to initiate an informal dispute resolution conference, write to Prodigy at legal@prodigygame.com or by mail ATTN: Legal Department at 226 Wyecroft Rd., Oakville, ON, L6K 3X7, providing your name, the contact information by which to reach you, a description of your claim, and a proposed resolution. Engaging in an informal dispute resolution conference is a condition precedent that must be fulfilled before commencing arbitration, and the Arbitrator shall dismiss any arbitration demand filed before completion of an informal dispute resolution conference.

If you and Prodigy do not reach an agreed-upon resolution within 30 days of the meet and confer, you and Prodigy agree that the Dispute will be resolved solely by binding arbitration in accordance with the then-current Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (AAA). The arbitration will be heard and determined by a single neutral arbitrator who is a lawyer or retired judge, who will administer the proceedings in accordance with the AAA’s Consumer Arbitration Rules. In resolving the Dispute, the arbitrator will consider applicable law, the provisions of this Agreement, and any facts based upon the record and no other basis, and will issue a reasoned decision.

A. Nature, Limitations, and Location of Alternative Dispute Resolution. In arbitration, the arbitrator will resolve the submitted Dispute. WITH ARBITRATION, THERE IS NO JUDGE OR JURY; THE ARBITRATION PROCEEDINGS AND ARBITRATION ARE SUBJECT TO CERTAIN CONFIDENTIALITY RULES; AND JUDICIAL REVIEW OF THE ARBITRATION OUTCOME IS LIMITED. All parties to the arbitration will have the right, at their own expense, to be represented by an attorney or other advocate of their choosing. If an in-person arbitration hearing is required, then it will be conducted in the “metropolitan statistical area” (as defined by the U.S. Census Bureau) where you are a resident at the time the Dispute is submitted to arbitration. You and we will pay the administrative and arbitrator’s fees and other costs in accordance with the applicable arbitration rules, but if applicable arbitration rules or laws require us to pay a greater portion or all such fees and costs in order for this arbitration agreement to be enforceable, then we will have the right to elect to pay the fees and costs and proceed to arbitration. Discovery will be permitted pursuant to the applicable arbitration rules. The arbitrator’s decision must consist of a written statement stating the disposition of each claim of the Dispute and must provide a statement of the essential findings and conclusions on which the decision and any award (if any) is based. Judgment on the arbitration decision and award (if any) may be entered into any court that has jurisdiction over the parties.

B. Small Claims Matters Are Excluded. As an exception to binding arbitration, you and Prodigy both retain the right to pursue, in a small claims court, any Dispute that is within that court’s jurisdiction and proceeds on an individual (non-class) basis. We will not demand arbitration in connection with any individual Dispute that you properly file and pursue in a small claims court, so long as the Dispute is pending only in that court.

C. Injunctive Relief. This arbitration agreement will not apply to any legal action taken by either party to seek an injunction or other equitable relief to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation, or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property rights.

D. Timing of Claim. To help resolve any Disputes promptly, you and Prodigy agree that any notice of intent to initiate an informal dispute resolution conference, or any small claims or injunctive relief complaint permitted under this Agreement must be filed, within one year after the events giving rise to the Dispute arise; otherwise, the Dispute is waived.

E. No Class Actions. You and Prodigy agree that each of us may bring claims against the other only on an individual basis and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative action or proceeding. You and Prodigy further agree that any Disputes will be arbitrated only on an individual basis and will not be consolidated with any other arbitrations or other proceedings that involve any claim or controversy of any other party. Also, the arbitrators may award relief (including monetary, injunctive, and declaratory relief) only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief necessitated by that party’s individual claim(s).

F. Opt-out. You can choose to reject this arbitration agreement by sending us a written opt-out notice (Opt-Out Notice) within 30 days following the date you first agree to this Agreement, by email at legal@prodigygame.com or by mail ATTN: Legal Department at 226 Wyecroft Rd., Oakville, ON, L6K 3X7. If mailed, the Opt-Out Notice must be postmarked no later than 30 days following the date you first agree to this Agreement. To be effective, the Opt-Out Notice must contain your name, address, and signature. If you opt-out of the arbitration agreement, all other parts of the Agreement will continue to apply to you. Opting out of this arbitration agreement has no effect on any previous, other, or future arbitration agreements that you may enter with Prodigy.

G. Survival of Arbitration Agreement. You and Prodigy agree that the agreement to arbitrate shall survive termination of this Agreement, and the termination of any membership or account you may have Prodigy.

H. Severance of Arbitration Agreement. If the arbitrator decides that applicable law precludes enforcement of any of this arbitration agreement’s limitations as to a particular claim for relief, then that claim (and only that claim) shall be severed from the arbitration and may be brought in court. In addition, notwithstanding anything to the contrary, if any part of this agreement to arbitrate is deemed invalid or inapplicable, the remainder of the agreement to arbitrate shall still be considered valid and enforceable.

Nothing herein shall be construed as consent by Prodigy to the jurisdiction of any court regarding claims unrelated to the use of the Services or this Agreement.

Indemnity

You agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless Prodigy and its subsidiaries, agents, licensors and affiliates, and their employees, contractors, agents, officers and directors from claims, damages, obligations, losses, cost or debt and expenses (including but not limited to attorney’s fees) arising from: (i) your use of and access to the Prodigy Content and/or the Services, including any data or content transmitted by you; (ii) your violation of any term of this Agreement, including but not limited to your breach of any representations or warranties; (iii) your violation of any third-party right, including but not limited to any right of privacy or intellectual property rights in connection with your use of the Services; (iv) any content or information that is submitted via your account or use of the Services; or (v) any other party’s access and use of the Services with your account credentials.

Warranty disclaimer

You acknowledge that Company has no control over, and no duty to take any action regarding: which users gain access to the Services; what Prodigy Content you access via the Services; how you may interpret or use the Prodigy Content or the Services; or what actions you may take as a result of having been exposed to the Prodigy Content. Prodigy cannot guarantee the security and safety of the Services given the nature of the Internet and the persistence of bad actors. You hereby release Company from all claims, damages, losses or liabilities related to your use of the Services or the Prodigy Content. 

THE SERVICES AND PRODIGY CONTENT ARE PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS” BASIS, WITHOUT WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, NON-INFRINGEMENT, OR THAT USE OF THE SERVICES WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE. SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW LIMITATIONS ON HOW LONG AN IMPLIED WARRANTY LASTS, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.

OTHER THAN AS EXPRESSLY STATED IN WRITING, PRODIGY MAKES NO REPRESENTATION OR WARRANTY THE SERVICES (1) WILL MEET YOUR REQUIREMENTS OR EXPECTATIONS OR BE TO YOUR LIKING; (2) WILL BE TIMELY, ACCURATE, FREE FROM ERRORS OR LOSS, UNINTERRUPTED, OR FREE FROM VIRUSES OR OTHER HARMFUL COMPONENTS; (3) WILL BE CORRECTED, REPAIRED OR OTHERWISE RESTORED FOR ANY DEFECTS OR ERRORS THAT OCCUR - SOME FEATURES ARE EXPERIMENTAL AND HAVE NOT BEEN TESTED.

TO THE FULLEST EXTENT ALLOWED BY APPLICABLE LAW, NO ADVICE OR INSTRUCTION, WHETHER ORAL OR WRITTEN, OBTAINED BY THE USER FROM COMPANY SHALL CREATE ANY WARRANTY NOT EXPRESSLY STATED IN THIS AGREEMENT.

Limitation of liability

This clause does not apply to consumers residing in Quebec:

TO THE FULLEST EXTENT ALLOWED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IN NO EVENT SHALL COMPANY OR ITS AFFILIATES, SUPPLIERS, OR BUSINESS PARTNERS, OR THEIR RESPECTIVE OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, OR AGENTS, BE LIABLE WITH RESPECT TO THE SERVICES OR THE SUBJECT MATTER OF THIS AGREEMENT UNDER ANY CONTRACT, NEGLIGENCE, TORT, STRICT LIABILITY OR OTHER LEGAL OR EQUITABLE THEORY (I) FOR ANY AMOUNT IN THE AGGREGATE IN EXCESS OF THE GREATER OF $100 OR THE FEES PAID BY YOU TO COMPANY HEREUNDER DURING THE 12-MONTH PERIOD PRECEDING THE APPLICABLE CLAIM; (II) FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OF ANY KIND WHATSOEVER; (III) FOR DATA LOSS OR COST OF PROCUREMENT OF SUBSTITUTE GOODS OR SERVICES; OR (IV) FOR ANY MATTER BEYOND COMPANY’S REASONABLE CONTROL.

Termination

You may terminate your use of the Services at any time. Prodigy may terminate or suspend your access to the Services or your account at any time, without prior notice or liability, if you violate any term or condition of this Agreement, if your account is inactive for a period of time, or for any other reason, which may result in the forfeiture and destruction of all information associated with your account, including progress and any upgrades or features obtained or purchased in any Prodigy game. Upon termination of your account, your right to use or access the Services and any Prodigy Content will immediately cease. 

When an educational institution’s use of the Services is terminated, upon request Prodigy will transfer any U.S. Student User’s personally identifiable information, as that term is defined under FERPA, to the institution or its designee, and certify that such personally identifiable information will not be retained or available to the Company. Prodigy will handle the institution’s personally identifiable information in accordance with the “Access, correction, or deletion of information” section of the Privacy Policy

This Agreement shall remain in full force and effect until terminated by Prodigy. For clarity, your termination of your use of the Services or deletion of your account, or Prodigy’s termination or suspension of your account, does not terminate this Agreement.

Miscellaneous

The failure of either party to exercise, in any respect, any right provided for herein shall not be deemed a waiver of any further rights hereunder. In the event of unauthorized disclosure of Student information, Company will notify linked Teacher and/or Parent Users where required by law at the contact information associated with the Teacher and/or Parent User’s account. Company shall not be liable for any failure to perform its obligations hereunder where such failure results from any cause beyond Company’s reasonable control, including, without limitation, mechanical, electronic or communications failure or degradation. If any provision of this Agreement is found to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision shall be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that this Agreement shall otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable. This Agreement is not assignable, transferable or sublicensable by you except with Company’s prior written consent. Company may transfer, assign or delegate this Agreement and its rights and obligations without consent. Both parties agree this Agreement is the complete and exclusive statement of the mutual understanding relating to the subject matter of this Agreement, and all modifications must be in writing signed by both parties, except as otherwise provided herein. No agency, partnership, joint venture, or employment is created as a result of this Agreement and you do not have any authority of any kind to bind the Company in any respect whatsoever. Headings for each section have been included above for your convenience, but such headings do not have any legal meaning, and may not accurately reflect the content of the provisions they precede. Except as expressly set forth in this Agreement, you and Company agree there are no third-party beneficiaries intended under this Agreement.
