iUgo – Plan, Teach, Learn
This Website is owned and operated by Essential Resources, and is copyrighted by the owners. It has been created with the express desire to assist schools and teachers with their planning on both a classroom and school-wide basis, building on what we already do well: helping teachers teach and students learn. While we respect that most users will operate their iUgo accounts and subscriptions in good faith and for the purpose intended, we do need to cover ourselves in the event of users using or copying content in a manner not covered by their subscription.
ANNUAL AND SUBSCRIPTION LICENSES FOR IUGO
Full intellectual property title of the Website remains with Essential Resources. No content, formatting, or images may be copied, published, broadcast, distributed, reproduced, or transmitted, except for the express purpose of curriculum planning within the subscribing individual’s home or classroom, or within the named teachers’ classrooms for school-wide subscriptions.
Your subscription represents a license to access the iUgo Website (Website) for the purpose of education-related planning. The license can be granted either as a single individual subscription for use in a classroom or home, or within a school on a per teacher license, for use within the school or educational organisation. The website and associated materials may not be shared with colleagues, friends, or other users throughout another cluster or school area, unless each user also has an individual or school-wide subscription.
PAYMENT OF FEES
As a subscriber, you (the individual, or the school) authorises Essential Resources to automatically charge your credit card a recurring fee based on the billing frequency you select. You understand that you will be charged this fee as long as your subscription is active. The subscription fee entitles you to complete access to the planning and organisational tools that the Website offers, and there is no limit to the frequency or extent of your legitimate usage. Refunds will not be issued on active subscriptions.
The registering individual or school agrees to the complete, current and accurate provision of all information as requested by the Website during the subscription process, including personal, organisation and payment information. Additionally, the user is required to maintain and update the Registration details, and maintain and manage subscription information through the iUgo and Essential Resources ‘My Account’ function. Any subscription changes, including cancellation, should be initiated and administered by you, by emailing to firstname.lastname@example.org.
