Effective Date: August 20th, 2013
Welcome to the iLearn With educational program. This “Program” is composed of two elements: the iLearn With applications (the “Applications”) and a progress tracking and recommendation service (the “Service”). The Program is operated by Tribal Nova, Inc. (“Tribal Nova”, “we”, “our” or “us”), with offices at 4200, Boulevard St.-Laurent, Ste. 1203, Montreal (Quebec), Canada H2W 2R2, a subsidiary of Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Publishing Company (“HMH”).
This document sets forth the Terms governing the Program and your use of the Applications and Service (collectively, the “Terms”). In order to use the Program, you must agree to the Terms. In some instances, both these Terms and separate guidelines, rules, or terms of service or sale setting forth additional or different terms and/or conditions will apply to your use of the Program or to a service or product offered by us (in each such instance, and collectively “Additional Terms”). To the extent there is a conflict between these Terms and any Additional Terms, the Additional Terms will control unless the Additional Terms expressly state otherwise.
Free and Voluntary Account creation
The Service will require you to register an account before use. Should you choose to register for the Service, you agree to provide accurate and current information about yourself and to promptly update such information as necessary in order to ensure that it is accurate and complete. You agree to be responsible for: (a) maintaining the confidentiality of any passwords or other account identifiers which you choose or are assigned as a result of any registration over the Service, and (b) all activities that occur under such password or account. Further, you agree to notify us of any unauthorized use of your password or account.
The Service allows you to optionally download and install a number of applications which are part of the Program. The Applications include Kidcore, a software program developed by Tribal Nova that powers a certain number of features of the Service (the “Software”). By installing the Software, you agree that Tribal Nova shall not be responsible or liable, directly or indirectly, in any way for any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of, or in connection with your use of the Software.
The Software is protected by copyright laws and international copyright treaties, as well as other intellectual property laws and treaties. All title and copyrights in and to the Software and Applications are owned by Tribal Nova. The Software is licensed to you for the term of your use of the Service and not sold to you. Your right to use the Software is limited, personal, non-transferable, and non-exclusive. Use of the Software is further subject to the following restrictions:
1. You may not delete or obscure any copyright, trademark or other proprietary notice on the Software or accompanying printed materials.
2. You may not decompile, modify, reverse engineer, disassemble or otherwise reproduce the Software.
3. You may not rent, lease, or sublicense the Software, create derivative works based on the Software, or otherwise commercially exploit the Software.
User’s Obligation to Abide By Applicable Law
In connection with the use of the Service, you shall abide by all applicable federal, state or local laws, including those pertaining to such areas as libel, slander, defamation, trade libel, product disparagement, harassment, invasion of privacy, tort, obscenity, indecency, and copyright and trademark infringement (“Applicable Law”). The Applications and the Service includes intellectual property that is protected under the copyright, trademark and other intellectual property laws of the United States, Canada and/or other countries (“Intellectual Property Laws”). Such Intellectual Property Laws generally prohibit the unauthorized reproduction, distribution or exhibition of all text, photographic and graphic (art and electronic) images, music, sound samplings and other protected materials. The violation of applicable Intellectual Property Laws may give rise to civil and/or criminal penalties.
No License; Intellectual Property of Tribal Nova and Other Parties

Governing Law and Miscellaneous
The Terms constitute the entire agreement between Tribal Nova and you pertaining to your use of the Application and the Service and supersede any prior agreements between you and Tribal Nova. Tribal Nova’s failure to insist upon or enforce strict performance of any right or provision of the Terms shall not constitute or be construed as a waiver of any right or provision. If any of the provisions (or parts thereof) contained in the Terms are determined to be void, invalid or otherwise unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, such determination shall not affect the remaining provisions (or parts thereof) contained herein. The Terms shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the province of Quebec, Canada.

We are free to assign the Terms and Additional Terms and to delegate our duties.
In connection with the Service you may receive communications inside the applications, through email or Facebook notifications. These communications may be of an informative nature such as the learning progress of a child or a recommendation or they may be of a promotional nature such as information about new Applications or price promotions available in the Program. If you do not wish to receive such communications your sole and exclusive remedy is to discontinue using the Service and continue to use the Applications in anonymous mode without using the Service.
Modifications to the Terms
The Program and the terms and conditions of its use will evolve as our services evolve. Accordingly, you agree that the Terms, and any Additional Terms, are subject to prospective change from time to time upon notice, and your continued use of the Program is conditioned upon your acceptance of any modifications hereto that are then posted on the Program, which you acknowledge is a sufficient means of giving you notice of the prospective changes.
Tribal Nova controls and operates the Service from its offices in Canada and servers in the U.S.A. and makes no representation that the Applications or Service are appropriate or available for use beyond the U.S.A. and Canada. If you use the Program from other locations, you are doing so on your own initiative and are responsible for compliance with applicable local laws regarding your online conduct and acceptable content, if and to the extent local laws apply. We reserve the right to limit the availability of the Program, and/or the provision of any content, program, product, service, or other feature described or available on or in connection with the Program, to any person, entity, geographic area, or jurisdiction, at any time and in our sole discretion, and to limit the quantities of any content, program, product, service, or other feature that we provide. You and we disclaim any application to these Terms of the Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods.
