”). The Platform aims to assist children or adults with learning difficulties (when registered to use the Platform, a “User
”) in overcoming dyslexia or other learning difficulties by providing information, tools and exercises and by facilitating interactions with registered teletherapy partners, including registered teletherapy groups and individual therapists (whether associated with a therapy group or otherwise) (each, a “Therapist
”). If the User is a minor child, we require a parent or other legal guardian or entity representative who has custody or control over the User (each, a “Guardian,” and together with the associated User, the “Clients”) to use the Platform in conjunction with the User to supervise the User’s use of and interactions with the Platform. “You” are the User if you are 18 years of age or older or otherwise have the legal capacity to enter into a binding agreement in your jurisdiction of residence, in which case you accept these Client Terms of Service (as defined below) on your own behalf. Otherwise “You” are the Guardian managing the User’s account and accepting these Client Terms of Service on behalf of yourself and on behalf of the User, and you will be responsible for ensuring the User complies with these Client Terms of Service and you will be liable for any breach or violation of these Client Terms of Service by the User.

IN THE EVENT THAT YOU HAVE A DISPUTE WITH ONE OR MORE THERAPISTS, YOU HEREBY AGREE TO RELEASE US (AND ALL OF OUR OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, AGENTS, INVESTORS, SUBSIDIARIES, AND EMPLOYEES) FROM ANY AND ALL CLAIMS, DEMANDS, DAMAGES (ACTUAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL) OF EVERY KIND AND NATURE, KNOWN AND UNKNOWN, SUSPECTED AND UNSUSPECTED, DISCLOSED AND UNDISCLOSED, ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY CONNECTED WITH SUCH DISPUTES.

” will typically take place over a week-long period and will typically consist of (i) one one-on-one video-conference teletherapy session with your Therapist and (where applicable) attended by both a Guardian and a User, and (ii) a series of online practice exercises and other activities as assigned by the Therapist and for the User and (where applicable) the Guardian to complete.
(b) Preparation for Sessions
. You understand that it is your responsibility to:
(ii) At least three (3) business days prior to your first Session, enter into a written service agreement with your Therapist outlining the terms and conditions of your relationship with your Therapist (“Service Agreement
(iii) Ensure the technology you use for video-conference teletherapy sessions (including your computer, internet connectivity, etc.) is adequate. More information about the Platform’s technology requirements and setting up such technology is available here, in our Technology Checklist https://www.lexercise.com/about/legal/technology
- Fees and Payments.
In exchange for and as a condition of your access to and use of the Platform, and unless otherwise agreed by us in writing, you agree to promptly pay to us (or cause a Third Party Payor to promptly pay to us) all Platform fees and charges at the current list prices set forth on our Website or as otherwise displayed to you at the time of checkout, including, but not limited to, all Session Charges (as defined below) for Professional Therapy or One-Off Charges (as defined below), as you incur them, subject to the terms and conditions of this Section 15.
In some cases, payment of fees and charges for your access to and use of the Platform may be sponsored by a third party organization (a “Third Party Payor”) that has agreed to make payments on your behalf under these Client Terms of Service. Such Third Party Payor, if any, is identified in a separate addendum or written agreement between you and us. In the event a Third Party Payor is making payments on your behalf, you may nevertheless be asked to pay to us one or more refundable deposits in an amount (or amounts) that you and we mutually agree upon. A portion of each refundable deposit will be refunded to you for each week that you are meeting all participation commitments with respect to access to and use of the Platform, as determined in our discretion.
(a) Managing Payment Information
To make payment of any fees or charges you incur while using the Platform, you (or the Third Party Payor as applicable) will be asked to provide at least one valid credit card, debit card, or other method of payment (your “Payment Account
”). It is your responsibility and obligation to provide accurate information (or to ensure the Third Party Payor has provided accurate information) pertaining to your Payment Account and to keep all such information current. By providing any payment information to us (or causing a Third Party Payor to provide any payment information to us), you represent and warrant to us that you are (or the Third Party Payor is) authorized to use the payment instrument provided for payment of all Platform fees and charges under these Client Terms of Service.
It is your responsibility to ensure the applicable Payment Account has sufficient funds. We are not responsible, and Therapists are not responsible, for bank or credit card fees associated with an overdraft on the applicable Payment Account.
(b) Professional Therapy – Session Charges
. The cost for a set of four (4) Sessions (a “Session Set
”) will be set in part based upon the current rates of your assigned Therapist (“Session Charges
”). You (or the Third Party Payor, as applicable) will be billed for Session Charges in one of three ways:
(i) Initiating Sessions
. When you first register for the Platform and are assigned a Therapist to work with, one Session Set will be added to your account and the applicable Payment Account will be billed for the applicable Session Charges.
(ii) Manual Pre-Payment of Session Charges
. You may manually choose to pre-charge the applicable Payment Account for as many Session Sets as you wish (with proper authorization from the Third Party Payor, as applicable). When you select and pay for additional Session Sets, those Session Sets will be added to your account for your future use.
(iii) Automatic Payment of Session Charges
. Once you initiate Sessions, you (or the Third Party Payor, as applicable) will automatically be billed for an additional Session Set after using the last Session in your User’s account. You may stop these recurring charges at any time by following the procedures for terminating recurring charges noted in Section 15(e)
below (“Terminating Recurring Charges”).
. Purchased Sessions may not be transferred from one User to another User.
(c) One-Off Charges
. You and your Therapist may arrange for payment for one-time expenses for items such as books, other instructional materials or additional consultation sessions as specifically agreed between you and your Therapist or for the payment of certain other one-time fees or charges, such as session rescheduling fees (collectively, “One-Off Charges
”). All One-Off Charges will be facilitated and processed through the Platform, and the applicable Payment Account will be billed for such One-Off Charges.
We may also charge you certain $25 processing fees, as described in Section 15(d)
below (“Terms of Payment”).
(d) Terms of Payment
All Platform fees and charges, including, but not limited to Session Charges and One-Off Charges are due immediately when incurred. Payment will be made for any fees or charges you incur, including Session Charges, by charging the Payment Account provided. You (or, as applicable, the Third Party Payor) will be sent an e-mail receipt itemizing all charges each time the applicable Payment Account is charged. If the primary Payment Account is determined to be expired, invalid, or otherwise unable to be charged, you agree that we may use a secondary Payment Account you have provided, if available.
ALL PURCHASES ARE FINAL; NO REFUNDS WILL BE PROVIDED FOR PAYMENTS ALREADY MADE, EXCEPT TO THE LIMITED EXTENT SET FORTH IN THESE TERMS OF SERVICE OR UNLESS OTHERWISE AGREED BY THE COMPANY IN ITS SOLE DISCRETION.
In certain cases we may in our sole discretion agree to refund fees and/or charges you have incurred via the Platform. Our choice to provide a discretionary refund of fees and/or charges for any one Client in any particular set of circumstances does not create any express or implied obligation to refund fees and/or charges for any particular Client in any particular set of circumstances at any time in the future.
Additionally, if you have a dispute relating to any Session Charges or One-Off Charges directly with a Therapist, you must contact the Therapist directly to resolve such disputes or discrepancies, and your claim must be in writing and be made within fifteen (15) days of such charges being billed to the applicable Payment Account. If you contact us in regards to such disputes, as a courtesy we may in our discretion use reasonable efforts to relay your communication to the applicable Therapist and we may in our discretion process a refund on your behalf , including (but not limited to) if we receive no response from the Therapist or if the Therapist confirms in writing that such Session Charges or One-Off Charges should be refunded. To the extent we choose to assist in resolving any such problems, we do so for your convenience only, and our choice to assist in resolving any such problem for any one Client in any particular set of circumstances does not create any express or implied obligation to continue doing so at any time in the future. If the dispute or discrepancy is not resolved in this manner (i.e., the Therapist disputes your claim), you understand that it is your responsibility, and not our responsibility, to contact the Therapist to attempt to attempt to resolve such dispute. You understand that, because we are not a party to the relationship between Clients and Therapists, we are not responsible for mediating or resolving disputes between Clients and Therapists.
All payments processed via the Platform will be encrypted and transmitted securely using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology through a reputable third-party payment processor.
You also understand that you are (or, as applicable, the Third Party Payor is) responsible for a $25 processing fee, which we may choose to apply to your account in our discretion, if (i) we have to make any reimbursement as a result of your failure to terminate Session Sets in a timely manner, (ii) you take a break between Session Sets and wish to re-initiate your subscription, (iii) you request certain additional services beyond those customarily provided (e.g., special receipts, letters, memos, or additional technology checks) from us.
(e) Terminating Recurring Charges
. To terminate recurring Session Sets and the automatic payment of Session Charges noted in Section 15(b)(iii)
above, or to terminate any other automatically recurring charges such as recurring subscription fees for our Mastery Therapy or Basic Therapy subscriptions, you must cancel your subscription by (i) logging in to your account online and selecting the “Cancel My Subscription” (or similarly-worded) option and following the prompts that appear, or (ii) contacting us using one of the methods described on the “Contact Us” page on our Website (https://www.lexercise.com/contact-us
) and indicating in your message that you wish to cancel your subscription. Professional Therapy subscribers must submit their cancellation request prior to 11:55 p.m. UTC on the day you use the last Session in the set to stop the next recurring charge. Mastery Therapy and Basic Therapy subscribers must submit their cancellation request prior to 11:55 p.m. UTC on the last day of the current subscription period to stop the next recurring charge.
Cancelling your subscription within the required time period will stop any future recurring monthly charges, but this will not result in a refund of any previously-paid fees or charges. No refunds are provided for fees or charges already paid, with limited exceptions described in these Terms of Service. The only other exception is if we process a subscription order after we have already received your timely cancellation request. If charges are made to your payment account after we have received your cancellation request, then we will refund these charges upon your request. If you cancel, your subscription benefits will continue until the end of the last subscription period for which you have paid (which, in the case of Professional Therapy subscribers, will be at the time of the last Session for which you have paid).
(f) Changes to Recurring Charges
. All posted prices are subject to change. Any recurring subscription fees are subject to change with prior notice to you. In connection with this prior notice to you of any fee increase for recurring charges, you will be given an opportunity to cancel your subscription before incurring any charges at the increased rates. If you do not cancel before the next payment is scheduled to be charged (when we have indicated the fee increase will take effect), the subscription fee at the increased rate will automatically be charged to your Payment Account at the beginning of the subscription period in which the fee increase will take effect and in each subscription period thereafter until you cancel.
(g) No Outside Payments
. All applicable Session Charges, One-Off Charges, and any other charges or fees associated with your use of the Platform must be paid through the Platform using the payment system that has been provided to you by us. You are prohibited from attempting in any way to avoid paying any such charges or fees by making payment outside of or apart from the Platform.

We have no control over the contents of those sites or resources, and accept no responsibility for them or for any loss or damage that may arise from your use of them.
