Thank you for your interest in membership! The membership site is intended to help R programmers improve their technical skills and learn how to market open source projects by providing a space for questions and collaboration.
If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to us at [email protected]. Once you are ready to sign up, please review the below terms that will apply to your paid subscription to the members-only services.
A. Subscription to Services. By making the necessary payments and providing required information under these Subscription Terms, the Company will grant you access to a Member Account on the Website to one or more of the member only forums, which include, without limitation Choroplethr Support Package, R Accelerator and Profitable Portfolios. You can access the Member Account by entering your email address and the unique password that you selected. Through your Member Account, you can access a members-only forum on the Website, ask questions to the Company experts that will be answered during “office hours,” search a library of past webinars and office hour sessions by the Company, and other members-only features that the Company may add from time to time (“Subscription Services”). You may still use the Website without a subscription, but the Subscription Services will be unavailable or restricted.
C. No Guarantee. The Subscription Services do not guarantee an outcome, or result, including but not limited to an advanced certification, job promotion or skill set.
2. MEMBER ACCOUNTS
A. Maintaining Account. You are solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality and security of your login and Member Account information, and you will remain responsible for all activity emanating from your Member Account, whether or not such activity was authorized by you. Any unauthorized access, use of passwords or Subscription Services, or other abuse or impermissible activity on the Website or in connection with the Subscription Services may result in immediate suspension or termination of your account. You agree to: (i) notify us immediately of any unauthorized use of any password(s) or account(s) or any other known or suspected breach of security; and (ii) report to us immediately and use reasonable efforts to stop immediately any copying or distribution of site content that is known or suspected.
B. Reservation of Rights. We reserve the right to disallow, cancel, remove, or reassign any usernames and permalinks in appropriate circumstances, as determined by us in our sole discretion, and may, with or without prior notice, suspend, terminate, or delete your Member Account if activities occur on that account which, in our sole discretion, would or might constitute a violation of these Subscription Terms or an infringement or violation of the rights of any third party, or of any applicable laws or regulations.
3. FEES AND CANCELLATION
A. Subscription Fees. The fees for use of the Subscription Services (the “Subscription Fees”) are described in detail in the payment summary screen of the selected member’s only package and are calculated based on the length of the subscription. Subscription Fees are refundable within the first thirty (30) days of use, and thereafter no refunds shall be given based on the cancellation of a Member Account.
B. Account Information and Payment. You agree to provide complete and accurate billing and contact information, including your legal name, email address, and any necessary billing information.
YOUR ACCOUNT IS SET TO AUTO RENEWAL AND WE MAY AUTOMATICALLY CHARGE YOU AT THE END OF THE TERM FOR THE RENEWAL PERIOD EQUAL TO THE CURRENT SUBSCRIPTION TERM, UNLESS YOU GIVE NOTICE OF NON-RENEWAL PRIOR TO EXPIRATION OF THE THEN-CURRENT SUBSCRIPTION TERM. The fees for any such renewal term shall be the same as that during the prior term unless the Company has given you notice of a fee increase, in which case the fee increase shall be effective upon renewal and thereafter.
C. Taxes and Duties. You are responsible for all taxes. The Company will charge tax when required to do so. If you are exempt from applicable taxes, you must provide the Company with an official exemption certificate or other appropriate documentation at the time of sign-up.

Cancellation of your subscription includes immediate removal of access to the Subscription Services and barring of further use of the members-only portions of the Website.

The Company will not have any liability whatsoever to you for any termination or cancellation of your Member Account, including for deletion of any data.
A. License Granted Per Subscription.
