Description of Services

We provide Visitors and Registered Users with access to the Services described below. 

Visitors can view all publicly-available content on Change Up.

Registered Users have purchased one or more courses or an annual subscription. Registered Users can do all the things that Visitors can do, and can access content exclusive to Registered Users including but not limited to creating, accessing, managing, and updating their accounts; participating in professional development courses; participating in contests; posting comments on discussion boards; and accessing resources and any other content available upon logging into Change Up. Registered Users designated as administrators for their companies (“company administrator” hereafter) can also access and use tools on the administrator dashboard.

Change Impact is under no obligation to accept any individual as a Registered User and may accept or reject any registration in its sole and complete discretion. In addition, Change Impact may deactivate any account at any time, including, without limitation, if it determines that a Registered User has violated these Terms of Service.

Pricing and Subscription Fees/Credits

Visitors and Registered Users will abide by the following:

Pricing: Pricing for Change Up courses, subscriptions, and premium services is posted on publicly-accessible pages of the platform. Pricing may be changed at any time, although a Registered User’s annual subscription fee will not change during the subscription period. Annual subscriptions renew automatically with ample notice provided to the Registered User and/or company administrator.

Subscription Fees and Credits: Annual subscriptions must be prepaid unless otherwise indicated by Change Impact in writing. While a Registered User or their company administrator may not cancel a subscription until the subscription year has ended, the purchaser can receive credits to use toward another subscription. This effectively allows a company that has purchased an annual subscription for an employee who can no longer use the platform due to termination or role change to transfer the remaining time on the subscription to another employee. No refunds will be issued for any Registered User account unless Change Impact fails to provide access to the platform.

However, your Change Up company administrator will have access to course progress completion data and can request Practice email open and click-through data.
