Response to criminal damage and redress for damages
Any attempt to hack, alter or deny access to other users will result in legal action to the full extent of the law.
Joining Fee and subsequent Subscription
At the end of a trial period you can decide whether or not it will be worth continuing with DeRep. If you decide that DeRep is not worth the fee then just click “No thanks” and then only the fee for the trial period and registration (referred to hereafter for the purposes of these conditions only as the Joining Fee) will be payable unless at the entire discretion of DeRep a promotional offer is currently running, in which case it may be waived or reduced.
If you decide that the DeRep product is worth the fee then just click “Yes please” to create a full account. You will still only be charged the Joining Fee and you will not be billed for the annual Subscription until 12 months later. The annual Subscription amount is notified before each 12 months period and you will not be charged more than that amount for that period.
The Joining Fee and annual Subscription allow you to access DeRep, to use its report generating facility and to freely use the reports thereby generated whether by copy and paste or by any other method approved by DeRep.
One of many comparisons of how the DeRep product is charged might be where you pay a fee to a fitness club for the right to freely access and use its equipment - except that with DeRep the fee is payable after the period of use and not before.
If you do not use DeRep then this will not effect your liability to pay the Subscription because the Subscription is for availability during the subscription period and not for any amount of use.
Non-payment of a Subscription charge may result in suspension of access without requirement for DeRep to give you any notice or explanation.
Termination due to misuse
If, at the entire discretion of DeRep, your use is clearly in excess of that which would be associated by a single professional teacher in the normal fulfilment of their teaching vocation then DeRep can immediately and without notice suspend or terminate your access to all parts of the site including the Forum without any refund or liability whatsoever attaching to DeRep.
Cancellation Policy (Termination of your Account) and refunds
Should either party (meaning either you or DeRep) wish at any time and for whatever reason and at either party's entire discretion, to close your account with DeRep then this is effected either by an email or by a posted letter from one party to the other stating the wish to close (terminate) your account. There is no notice period required and such termination simply triggers both the closing of your account (as soon as the instruction is actioned by DeRep) and the payment of any outstanding Subscription. There is no reduction in a Subscription charge if termination by you is less than one year from the date the subscription was agreed or renewed because it is a fixed charge, made in arrears, for a subscription period of up to one year unless at the entire discretion of DeRep a promotional offer is currently running, the terms of which allow, in the event of a cancellation during the first year, a subscription which only covers (pro-rata) the period up to the date of cancellation.

DeRep strictly restricts its disclosure of contact information to third parties on condition that your contact information will only be used to send you marketing material for products or services related to the teaching profession. However, if you do not wish to receive information about such products or services then, whenever you are asked to fill in a form on the website, look for the box that you can click to indicate that you do not want your contact information to be used by anybody other than DeRep for marketing purposes.
If you do not initially indicate that you do not wish to receive such information, but then change your mind later, you can notify us of this at any time by writing to or emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We will not sell, distribute or lease your personal information to third parties unless we have your permission or are required by law to do so.
