Payment Methods and Processing
We accept major credit cards. We reserve the right to reject any order or purchase at any time. If your initial payment authorization is later revoked, your subscription and access to certain features will be disabled.

When you subscribe to a premium plan, the price will be made clear during the order process. You agree to pay the price that is stated at the time of your order, as well as any applicable taxes. You also agree to the billing frequency stated at the time of your order.
Discount eligibility is determined at the time of the order. Discounts cannot be applied retroactively.
All prices are in United States Dollars, unless otherwise stated.
We reserve the right to change prices and fees at any time. We will notify you in advance if the regular rate of a subscription changes from what was stated at the time of your order. You will have the opportunity to accept the new price or cancel your subscription from that point forward.
If your credit card expires or your payment method is otherwise invalid, your subscription and access to certain features will not be automatically disabled. Your account will remain active. All of your information, account details, and data will remain intact. However, you will remain responsible for all charges and access to certain features may become unavailable until unpaid charges are processed.

You may cancel at any time, but the cancellation will become effective at the end of your current billing period. You will not receive a refund for the current billing cycle if the cancellation occurs after the first 30 days. You will continue to have the same access to the features of your plan for the remainder of the current billing period.
We reserve the right to suspend or terminate your subscription for any reason, with or without notice and without further obligation. You will not be entitled to a refund in these circumstances. If any or all of our services or features are temporarily unavailable, you will not receive a refund.

Use by Children
The Children's Online Privacy and Protection Act ("COPPA") requires online services to obtain verifiable parental consent before receiving any personally identifiable information from children under 13. While the Service is not directly aimed at children under 13, it is beneficial for teacher curriculum and also aids student learning for many ages and grade levels. Many aspects of the Service are available for use without creating an account, but there are times when creating an account is desired and more valuable for teachers and students. In these circumstances, trinket relies on the school or teacher to obtain and provide appropriate parental consent to collect personal information, such as name and email address, from students under 13 before creating accounts. Parents must be notified and provided with appropriate disclosures regarding what information is shared with trinket. If we discover that students under 13 have created accounts without parental consent, we are obligated to delete their accounts and any other personal information they have uploaded.
To find more information about COPPA, please visit http://www.coppa.org/coppa.htm. To find information on how to comply with COPPA, please visit the Federal Trade Commission's FAQ page at http://www.ftc.gov/privacy/coppafaqs.shtm.
