Terms and conditions
This user agreement (“agreement”) is a contract between you and Brilliant Education Group LLC, and applies to your subscription to and use of products and services available through www.brilliantprep.com and www.reasonprep.com (collectively the “services”). If you do not agree to be bound by the terms and conditions of this agreement, please do not use or access the services. You are also then not allowed to access the Brilliant Prep content from multiple places/locations/computers at the same time.
You must read, agree with, and accept all of the terms and conditions contained in this agreement before you become a subscriber to and user of Brilliant Prep’s and/or Reason Prep’s services.
We may amend this agreement at any time by posting the amended terms on our site www.brilliantprep.com or www.reasonprep.com (the “site” or “the site”). Except as stated below, all amended terms shall be effective 30 days after they are initially posted on our site. Upcoming changes will also be posted on this page.
In this agreement, “you” or “your” or “users” means any person or entity subscribing to and/or using the service (“users”). Unless otherwise stated, “Brilliant Prep”, “Reason Prep”, “Brilliant Education Group LLC”, “we” or “our” will collectively refer to Brilliant Prep.
In consideration of and subject to your payment of the appropriate subscription fee for the services you subscribe to, and your agreement to and compliance with the terms and conditions set forth in this agreement, Brilliant Prep grants to you a non-exclusive, non-sub licensable, non-transferable license, and right to use and access the Brilliant Prep content (the “licensed materials”) from multiple places/locations/computers at different times. You are not allowed to access the Brilliant Prep content from multiple places/locations/computers at the same time.
You must use a Brilliant Prep recommended version of an operating system, Internet browser, and any other required software to access the licensed materials.
Access to Course Content
You shall be allowed to use the licensed materials for the specific course(s) and matter to which you have subscribed. Each course has its own subscription fees and course duration. You are not allowed to access the content of courses that you have not subscribed to (e.g., subscribing to our video “All SAT Courses” does not mean that you will have access to other materials like “Platinum Membership”).
Most of the information collected in the registration process will be used to process orders. During the order process, you will have to provide financial information such as your credit/debit card number, expiration date, CVV2 code, payee name, and billing address. This information is used for billing purposes and to fulfill your order. To properly process your credit/debit card information, we must share your personal and financial information with the merchant bank for authorization and approval. This process is protected by an enhanced security system. We do not share your personal and financial information with any third parties.
When you attempt a transaction on our website, the card processor verifies available funds by placing a hold, or pending charge, on the amount of the intended transaction against your card. The card processor then confirms the accuracy of your remaining information (e.g., your address, CVV2 Code, expiration date, etc.) before processing the transaction. If you enter an incorrect address or other associated detail, then the transaction is declined. This is NOT a situation unique with this website, but it is how virtually all online transactions are handled. Typically, it takes the card issuing bank 2-5 days to clear associated pending charges resulting from failed/declined attempts.
We charge for each successful transaction attempt and provide a confirmation of such on our website and send a confirmation email to the registered email address upon each successful transaction on our website. Upon request we can also provide you copy of the payment receipt.
Except as otherwise provided in this agreement or at the sole discretion of Brilliant Prep, no refunds, cancellations, or changes to subscriptions will be allowed. Brilliant Prep reserves the right to refuse a refund if the user is found to be in violation of these Terms and Conditions or acting against Brilliant Prep interest.
