THIS AGREEMENT CONTAINS A CLASS ACTION/JURY TRIAL WAIVER PROVISION. EXCEPT WHERE PROHIBITED BY LAW, THIS PROVISION WAIVES YOUR RIGHT TO USE JURY TRIALS OR CLASS ACTIONS.
BY ACCEPTING THESE TERMS, YOU EXPRESSLY AGREE TO BE BOUND BY AND ABIDE BY THIS AGREEMENT, INCLUDING THE CLASS ACTION/JURY TRIAL WAIVER PROVISION. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THIS AGREEMENT, YOU MAY NOT ACCESS OR USE, AND MUST IMMEDIATELY DISCONTINUE ANY AND ALL USE OF THE SERVICES.
Use of the Site
The Site may change from time to time without prior notice to you and we may stop (permanently or temporarily) providing Content to you or to users generally and may not be able to provide you with prior notice.
License to Use the Site
Subject to your compliance with these Terms, The Change Playbook grants you a non-exclusive and non-transferable single user license to access and use the Site, solely for your own personal use. You may not: (i) copy, modify or distribute Content for any purpose; (ii) transfer, sublicense, lease, lend, rent or otherwise distribute the Content to any third-party; (iii) decompile, reverse-engineer, disassemble, or create derivative works of the Site and Content; (iv) make the functionality of the Site available to multiple users through any means; or (v) use the Site in any unlawful manner, for any unlawful purpose, or in any manner inconsistent with these Terms.
In order to access, use, or receive certain Content, you may register and create an account (Account) and become a Registered User by registering through our Site. In creating an Account, you represent that you are of legal age to form a binding contract and are not a person barred from receiving services under the laws of Canada or other applicable jurisdiction. When creating an Account, you will be required to provide certain personal information about yourself and establish a username and a password. You will also have the option of providing certain personal information about other associated people so that we may link to them to your Account, or so you can otherwise represent them through your Account. We reserve the right to suspend or terminate your Account if any information provided during the registration process or thereafter proves to be inaccurate, false, or misleading.
You are responsible for safeguarding the password that you use for your Account and for any activities or actions under your Account, whether or not you have authorized such activities or actions. TCP is not liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with the above requirements.
Any personal information that you provide to TCP is subject to our Privacy Notice, which governs our collection and use of your personal information. As part of providing you the Content, we may need to provide you with certain communications, such as service announcements and administrative messages. These communications are considered part of the Site and your Account, which you may not be able to opt-out from receiving.
TCP Content includes features to help you manage a change management project. We are always trying to improve the features offered but our methods will necessarily not be predicated to your unique circumstance. Results may vary.
All features of the Site are subject to change or removal at any time, without notice.
Product Availability and Pricing
We use reasonable efforts to fulfill orders but cannot guarantee availability of any particular product or service, and sometimes an item shown for sale through the Site may not be available. In that case, we may cancel your order or contact you for follow-up. We reserve the right to discontinue the sale of any product or service at any time without notice. We may decline or place quantity limits on your order at any time.
In the event of a pricing or other error, we reserve the right to revoke offers, cancel orders and correct errors or omissions, including after an order has been placed. Our acknowledgement of an order means that your order request has been received; not that the price or availability of an item has been confirmed. “MSRP” prices are the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price, which may differ from the other online or retailer prices in your area. In some cases, intermediate markdowns may have been taken.
If you wish to purchase products or services described on the Site, you will be asked to supply certain information applicable to your purchase, including credit card and shipping information. You may be able to store your information with your account, which allows you to make future purchases without re-entering information. You agree to pay all charges incurred by you and your credit card (or other applicable payment mechanism) at the price(s) in effect when such charges are incurred.
We are required by law to collect all applicable sales taxes for all provinces and municipalities. You authorize us to charge the applicable sales taxes to your credit card at the time of completion of order shipment.
All billing and registration information provided by you must be accurate, complete and correct. By confirming your purchase at the end of the checkout process, you agree to accept and pay for the items, products and/or services that you have requested. Receiving an order acknowledgement via email does not guarantee the acceptance of an order.
Limitations on Purchases
We are not responsible for failure to fulfill orders due to causes beyond our control. We reserve the right to: (1) limit order quantities to reasonable amounts (in our sole discretion); (2) prohibit purchases on the Platform by retailers, distributors, or resellers; (3) discontinue or refuse to offer any product or service; (4) impose conditions on any discount, coupon or promotion; and/or (5) bar any user from completing a transaction.
We ship using a common mail or courier delivery business. Shipping normally takes between 4 to 10 business days but may take longer. Your cart at checkout will itemize any additional shipping fees.
Please visit our policy for Returns & Exchanges, which is incorporated by reference as part of these Terms.
You are responsible for complying with Canada, United States, and foreign export controls and for any violation of such controls, including any Canadian embargoes or other rules and regulations restricting exports. You represent that you are not: (1) located in, or a resident or a national of, any country subject to a government embargo or other restriction, or that has been designated by any government as a “terrorist supporting” country; or (2) on any government list of restricted end users.
Site Updates, including Additions, Modifications, or Discontinuations
Business and technology needs evolve, so we may add, modify, or discontinue (collectively, “Update”) the Site at any time, and you consent to these Updates.
Content on the Site
TCP is a place where many Registered Users and other content publishers can write, contribute and edit Content. While we intend TCP to be, at least in part, a collaborative space where users and publishers can share useful and interesting information about change management, TCP is not responsible for screening and/or verifying the information provided on or through the Site and we make no guarantee or warranty that the information provided is accurate, complete, reliable, or safe to practice. You agree that you use this content on TCP at your own risk.
The Site may include advertisements or other forms of content sponsored by third parties (emails, blog posts and articles, etc.). TCP may receive compensation for some of the sponsored content made available through the Site, or may receive compensation if you follow the links associated with this content. Offers we show you are subject to change without notice. The sponsored content may be targeted to the Content or information on the Site, queries you make through the Site, information we learn about you, or other information. The types and extent of sponsored content on the Site are subject to change. In consideration for TCP granting you access to and use of the Site, you agree that TCP and its third-party collaborators may place such advertising or sponsored content on the Site or with the Content, including where the Content is submitted by you or others.
Content You Submit
By uploading, posting, submitting or otherwise transmitting any Content through the Site, you grant TCP a worldwide, non-exclusive, transferable, royalty-free license, with the right to sublicense, to use, store, copy, adapt, modify, create derivative works, distribute, license, sell, transfer, publicly display, publicly perform, transmit, stream, broadcast, and otherwise exploit such Content (in whole or in part) and/or to incorporate such Content in other works in any form, media or technology, for the purposes of operating, providing, improving, and promoting the Site. You agree that this license includes the right for other users of the Site to access, view, modify, edit, download, and print any Content for their own non-commercial purposes. TCP does not claim any ownership rights in your Content; you retain ownership rights to any Content you submit, post, or display on or through the Site.
You are responsible for your use of the Site, for any Content you provide, and for any consequences thereof, including the use of your Content by other users. You represent and warrant that you have all the rights, power, and authority necessary to grant the rights granted herein to any Content that you submit. We reserve the right at all times and for any reason to remove or refuse to distribute any Content that you provide through the Site that violates these Terms.
You may remove your Content from the Site at any time by specifically deleting it or, if that is not possible, by sending us a request. If you remove your Content, TCP may retain a copy of your Content for backup, archival, or audit purposes and may continue to use, store, display, reproduce, modify, create derivative works, perform, and distribute any of your Content that other users have stored or shared through the Site.
Fees and Payment
We may charge fees for the use of certain portions or aspects of the Site, which will be described on the Site and/or these Terms. Fees are subject to change at any time. You agree that we may charge fees to your credit card or other payment account for such services and that you will pay all applicable fees assessed to your Account. Our fees do not include charges and rates charged by your mobile carrier, including for data and messaging plans that may be required to use the features of the Site, and you are responsible for the payment of those charges and rates.
A TCP subscription is an automatically renewing premium paid subscription feature on the TCP Site that provides full access to all Content and certain enhanced features not available to other TCP users, including discussion with and coaching from professional change managers associated with TCP. We may add or remove features from TCP subscription plans from time to time. Accessing TCP subscription-only features requires an auto-renewing subscription, but the general TCP platform remains free to use.
Automatic Renewal of TCP Subscriptions
You may purchase access to a TCP subscription for a specified fee, and your subscription will automatically renew on your billing date until you cancel. We will automatically charge the associated fee (plus any applicable taxes) to your credit card or other payment method in your TCP Account each billing cycle unless you cancel your TCP subscription as described below.
To avoid being billed for the next subscription renewal period, you must cancel your subscription at least 24 hours before the end of your current subscription period. To cancel your subscription, or to see your next renewal date or the current fee for your subscription, visit your TCP Account Settings page.
If you cancel your TCP subscription, your access will end on the last day of your subscription period. To access TCP’s subscriber-only features after you cancel your subscription, you will need to purchase a new subscription, at which time different fees, terms, and conditions may apply.
Promotional Offers for TCP Subscriptions
We may make promotional offers that provide access to subscriber-only features for a short period of time at a discounted fee, as described in connection with each offer. Additional terms may apply to promotional offers. If you sign up for a promotional offer, your subscription will automatically convert to a paid subscription unless you cancel before the end of the trial or promotional period.
Eligibility for a trial or promotional offer will be determined by TCP, in our sole discretion. We may limit the eligibility or duration of promotional offers at any time and for any reason. We reserve the right to revoke any offer and put your Account on hold if we determine that you are not eligible for the offer.
TCP Subscription Plans
We may offer various types of subscriptions or access to TCP’s subscriber-only features. Some subscription plans may have different terms, conditions or limitations that will be disclosed in connection with those plans. You can find information regarding your TCP subscription on the Settings page of your TCP Account.
Payment for TCP Subscriptions
You must maintain accurate and up-to-date credit card or other payment information in your Account. You authorize us to charge any credit card or other payment method associated with your Account. If a payment is unsuccessful, we may suspend your access to TCP subscriber-only until you provide a valid payment method. TCP assumes no responsibility or liability if your subscription fails to renew or expires because of invalid payment information. You remain responsible for any uncollected amounts.
Cancellation of TCP Subscriptions
To cancel your TCP subscription, go to your TCP Settings on the TCP Site and follow the instructions for cancellation. You may cancel your TCP subscription at any time; you will continue to have access to subscriber-only features through the end of your current billing period.
If you cancel your TCP subscription, you will still have access to the free content on your TCP Account.
We may terminate, restrict, or suspend your access to your TCP subscription without credit or refund to you for any reason in our sole discretion, including if we determine that your activity violates these Terms, is improper, involves fraud or misuse, or harms or interferes with our or any other person’s interests.
Content or Feature Changes to TCP Subscriptions
There are a variety of reasons why certain Content or features might need to be changed or removed. All TCP subscriber-only Content and features are subject to change or removal at any time without notice. Content removal does not entitle you to a refund (full or partial) of subscription fees.
Refunds for TCP Subscriptions
Subscription fees for TCP are nonrefundable, except where prohibited by applicable law. If you cancel, you will not receive a refund or credit for any partial-period access to your TCP subscription.
Deleting Your TCP Account
If you want to delete your TCP Account, you may be required to cancel your TCP subscription before your Account can be deleted.
Eligibility and Use Restrictions for TCP Subscriptions
To subscribe to TCP, you must be the age of majority in your jurisdiction. You are permitted to use TCP subscriber-only features for personal, non-commercial uses only and may not share TCP subscription features. You may download Content for personal use. You agree not to circumvent, remove, alter, or thwart any Content protections in the TCP Application or Site.
Sponsored Content & Advertising in TCP Subscriptions
Certain Content available in your TCP subscription may be sponsored by a third-party advertiser, or may contain third-party advertising. TCP may also promote and advertise its own or related products or services through TCP subscriptions. In addition, personalities featured in TCP subscription Content might be incentivized to encourage users to sign up for TCP and to visit their TCP subscriber Content.
