Welcome to Modern Music Masters, Inc. (MMM) at Thinkific.com, home to the very best in streaming video music instruction via online courses taught by true Masters of their instruments and craft.
This Website, mmmlearn.thinkific.com (the “Site”), which includes, without limitation, all web content and underlying software and technology, is a copyrighted work belonging to Modern Music Masters, Inc. (the “Company,” “we,” “us,” and “our”). These Terms of Service (the “Terms”) govern the use of the Site, and govern the Site Users’ (the “Users,” “Member(s)” ‘Student(s)” “you” and “your”) access to the Site.
These Terms also govern each Member’s enrollment in any of the “Payment Plan(s),” or “Service(s)”) via creation of a Student Account (the “Account”), and govern use of the Service(s) available through the Site.
After enrolling via a Payment Plan with our Company and creating a Student Account as part of a purchase, you will be able to view and/or hear an assortment of video, audio, data, interactive, and other content, depending on the actual Service(s) you purchased.
These Terms apply to all Users, Members/Students, and any other visitors who access or use this Site or Service. “Use” of or “using” this Site or Service incudes, without limitation, navigating to or between our webpages, clicking any items on webpages, inputting information, or subscribing to or partaking in our Service in any way.
These Terms constitute a binding legal agreement between you and the Company. By using our Company’s Service and Site, you are confirming that you are at least 18 years of age and are legally eligible to enter into a binding legal agreement. You warrant that you have full authority and capacity, legal or otherwise, to use the Site and Services.
You CANNOT become a Member/Student of any Payment/Subscription Plan if you DO NOT ACCEPT ALL TERMS. Any new subscription requests received by our Company will not be processed until the potential new Member has agreed to the Terms and checked the box “ACCEPT” when completing registration. Any new Member will not be enrolled into the Service, and the Service will not be activated until the new Member has agreed and chose to ACCEPT the Terms.
CHANGES & MODIFICATIONS TO TERMS OF SERVICE
Our Company reserves the right to modify, add to, restate, suspend, or terminate all or part of the Site or Service at any time with or without providing prior notice to Members/Students or Users. This includes the right to create limits on Members/Students’ use of the Service. You agree we are not liable to you or any third-party for using or enforcing the rights stated in this paragraph. Unless we otherwise indicate, any future modifications to the Site are subject to these Terms. All modifications shall be effective immediately upon being posted on our Company’s Site.
Unless explicitly stated otherwise, any new feature that augments or enhances the current Service shall be subject to these Terms of Service.

Information is available in our Policy regarding a User’s ability to “Opt-Out” of certain Cookies. However, any opt-out settings are set up by the User individually on their own device. Please be aware that opting-out of some or all Cookies may affect some of the features and use of our Site.
REGISTRATION INFORMATION & SUBSCRIPTION MEMBERSHIP/STUDENTSHIP
SERVICE FEES & CHARGES
The basic account fees (“Service Fees”) shall be provided at the rates set out in the Modern Music Master’s pricing plan at the time of purchase, plus any applicable taxes that may apply. The Company may from time to time modify the Service Fees, including offering promotional rates under these Terms.
If for any reason payment is not effected through the Member’s credit or debit card and payment becomes past due, the Company may contact the Member via email on file to notify Member that the current listed payment method has failed, and ask the Member to provide a different payment method. The Member may receive a message from the Site that their Account has been suspended during the period of unresolved non-payment. Members/Students are responsible for any fees, including late fees, collection fees, and attorney fees that the Company may assess or incur in its efforts to collect any amounts due and owing.
BILLING FOR SERVICES & PAYMENT METHODS
Service Fees shall be paid credit or debit cards, or other means as may be printed on invoices or posted on our website. Billing may be made by a third party, and payments are processed through a secure third-party website. Members/Students shall pay their initial Service Fee in advance, at times and rates set out in the pricing plan. The Company reserves the right to change the billing process at its discretion. If the billing process is updated, our Company will provide the Member notice in writing via email on record within 30 days to let them know of such changes
TERM OF SUBSCRIPTION MEMBERS/STUDENTSHIP
The term of any annual (even if paid for monthly or semi-monthly) Purchase Plan shall be for one (1) full year from the date of registration/payment. The Service shall discontinue at the end of that one calendar year from registration date, unless the Member takes steps to renew their Service Plan for an additional term (year or month). For any course sold with no enrollment expiration date, the purchaser is entitled to access the course as long as it is available online from Modern Music Masters.
TERMINATION & SUSPENSION OF SUBSCRIPTION MEMBERS/STUDENTSHIP
Our Company has the right to suspend, restrict, or terminate a Member’s use of the Service and to refuse any future use of all Services if our Company has reason to believe that the Member has failed to comply with these Terms, or has failed to make necessary payments for service. Additionally, a Member has the right to terminate their account and the Service at any time by notifying the Company through the below listed Contact Information. If you or the Company terminates the Agreement or if the Company suspends your access to the Service for cause such as non-compliance with Terms or failing to pay a Service Fee, you agree that our Company shall have no liability or responsibility to you, and the Company is not under any obligation to refund any amounts that would have already been paid by you, or for multi-payment plans, that you have yet to pay, to use the Service.
CANCELLATION & REFUNDS
Once a Subscription Service Plan is purchased (single pay or multi-pay), the initial subscription cost (the “Service Fee”) is deemed completely earned and fully payable to Modern Music Masters, Inc. The Service Fee is fully payable and nonrefundable for the entire duration of the Service Plan, (except as further specified below in this section) regardless of how many times a Member accesses their Account and uses the Service during the Service period.
Members/Students understand that they are paying for the right to have an Account with access to the Service, regardless whether they choose to regularly access and use the Service.
A Member has a right to cancel their subscription to the Service Plan at any time throughout the Service’s duration. To do so, Member needs to contact the Company directly via the information provided through the below listed Contact Information. However, a Member is not entitled to a refund, partial or full, for the Service just by cancelling their subscription to the Service, and they remain responsible for all unpaid future payments that may remain on a multi-Pay Plan.
Full refunds may only be available to a Member who has recently signed up for the Service, but has chosen to cancel the Service within fourteen (14) days of registering on this Site. A Member who cancels within this 14-day period may be entitled to the entire amount of the Service Fee paid minus a processing fee. (NOTE: This does not apply to a re-purchase or re-enrollment in a course that was purchased previously.) However, our Company reserves the exclusive right to refuse any refund request, or to refuse to prorate any refund request of the Service fee, even within the first fourteen (14) days of service if there is evidence that the Member has copied, recorded, screen-scraped, or otherwise illegally recorded or replicated our content.
Our Company may review any request for a refund in this time period, and may have cause to determine and document what content has been viewed by the Member making the refund request to determine if they would qualify for a refund based on content viewing in this fourteen (14) day period. Outside of this 14-day period, generally, no refunds will be issued. However, there may be exceptions, which will be assessed on case-by-case basis, including our log-in/access data records of how much of the course has been viewed, and may be prorated at the Company’s discretion. Please contact us via the below listed Contact Information to make any refund requests.

This list is non-exclusive, and may include other reasonable events that would likely qualify as such under any of these categories.

DISPUTE RESOLUTION & MANDATORY ARBITRATION
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING PARAGRAPH BECAUSE IT REQUIRES YOU TO ARBITRATE DISPUTES WITH MMM AND IT LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM MMM.
Any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to these Terms, or the breach thereof, shall be settled by arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association in accordance with its Commercial Arbitration Rules [including the Optional Rules for Emergency Measures of Protection]. BE AWARE – ARBITRATION PREVENTS YOU FROM SUING IN COURT OR FROM HAVING A JURY TRIAL

Notices to our Company should be sent in accordance with the Notice section of these Terms. Our Company will send any such notices to the email account you provided. You agree that you will attempt to seek informal resolution with our Company prior to any demand for arbitration, and our Company will agree to do the same.
