A.    PERMANENT ACCESS TO PURCHASES, AND TERMINATION OF ACCESS ON DEAD ACCOUNTS 

Students retain permanent access to their purchases in the version purchased or with in-version upgrades so long as these courses remain available, with the following single requirement. A minimum of one time per year, students who wish to maintain access to their purchases must log into the site to prove the account is active, and must, if their account information has become outdated, correct that information.

Students will receive a reminder notice before their accounts expire (if they have site emails on). Students who fail to keep their account current will have their email-address/login deleted from the account and will lose login access one month after their accounts expire.

To get an account reinstated after it has been locked, the student must create a ticket at the HELP DESK and in that ticket provide a working email address which will serve as the student's login name, plus the full name used with the account to validate ownership of the account, and all receipts for each class purchased containing both the account name and the account email, proving that the account and the full class belongs to the student.

Any account which has not been accessed by the account owner for a period of more than two years and for which the owner has not responded to the reminder notice will be designated a Dead Account. Each such account will be deleted entirely, and after deletion, for the writer to reinstate classes, a new account will have to be created (that will not be connected to previous forum posts or groups), and for each class reinstated, all receipts for each class purchased must be presented.
