- Our clients will ask for help. Reach out to the AMSED 24/7 team if you have any questions, require assistance, have suggestions for improvement or have any issues or concerns.
- As a client, you will regularly review your subscription to AMSED 24/7 and advise the team of any changes, particularly with personnel leaving or joining your organisation.
- As a client you are responsible for regulating and moderating the discussion board provided by AMSED 24/7 and AMSED takes no responsibility for any posting made on the discussion board or any damages arising out of postings made on the discussion board (see the discussion board disclaimer below).
Subscriptions, fees and continuity of service
- Your organisation, if purchasing, will be purchasing a subscription service. The nature of a subscription service is that, regardless of your organisation’s access and usage, AMSED 24/7 will continue to make the Learning Management System and the online continuing professional development modules available to your organisation until provided with prior written notice to cease the subscription (see ‘Cancellation policy and refunds’ below).
- Emailed invoices are issued to the nominated billing contact monthly or annually, whichever is applicable.
Where more subscriptions are required by a customer, those new subscriptions are generally referred to by AMSED 24/7 as ‘additional users’:
- additional users will be added on the request of the authorised customer administrator; and
- any such request will be deemed to be authorised by the customer and the customer agrees to pay for additional users;
For customers paying monthly:
- additional users are charged for the whole of the month that the additional user is added. This means that AMSED will charge the monthly fee for each additional user, not a part of month fee; and
- An additional invoice for that month is issued for additional users; and
- The monthly invoice will also be sent on the regular monthly invoicing date and will include in the total subscription fee, any additional users added in the month.
For customers paying annually:
- additional users are charged for the whole of the month that the additional user is added. This means that AMSED will charge the annual fee for each additional user, not a part of month fee; and
- The additional users will then be charged on a pro rata per annum basis. For clarity, if a customer adds 10 additional users on 5 December and their regular monthly invoice falls due on 1 April, the customer will be charged for 10 additional users from 1 December to 31 March (4 months of usage only); and
- The annual invoice will be sent on the regular annual invoicing date.
- Should any invoice remain unpaid, a reminder will also be sent.
- Our Terms of Service are subject to change. Your nominated organisation administrator will be notified of these changes via email. The Terms of Service are always available at www.amsed.com.au/terms-of-service.
Cancellation policy & refunds
- If your organisation has opted to be invoiced monthly, you will receive invoices for the month ahead in the last week of the month, for payment in the first week of the following month. No refunds are available once a monthly invoice has been paid.
- Following one year of full subscription, subscriptions can be cancelled by you at the end of the current month, providing written advice is received at email@example.com. All online access will cease on the last day of the invoicing period.
- If your organisation has opted to be invoiced annually, you will receive an invoice for the year ahead approximately two weeks in advance. No refunds are available once payment of annual invoices has been made.
- The renewal date is the date indicated on the invoice as being the renewal date.
- If written notice to cancel an annual subscription is received after the renewal date, your organisation will be invoiced at the standard monthly rate for each month between the renewal date and the month that notice was received.
- In this event, all outstanding invoices up to the final month of cancellation, must be paid within seven days of the date of the invoice, to avoid further penalty or debt recovery action.
