Educonnex reserves the right to change these terms and conditions, and undertakes to notify you by email if this should occur. A Client must complete the new school registration process and provide Educonnex with current, complete, and accurate information as set out in the PTO Registration Form.
Security and Privacy
All users are entirely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of their password and User ID.
Furthermore, the users are entirely responsible for any and all activities that occur under their account. Users agree to notify Educonnex immediately of any unauthorised use of your account or any other breach of security.

A “Set Up” Fee must be paid once at the commencement of the use of PTO.
This fee is only charged once in the lifetime of the school on the basis that PTO is used at least once within each 12 month billing period. The billing year is each 12 month period, based on the date and month of your initial PTO registration.
Educonnex reserves the right to charge a client a new Set Up Fee if PTO is not used at least once in each billing period, or if a Client cancels their subscription and re-subscribes at a later point in time.
An Annual Subscription will be liable, and payable for 12 months access to PTO.
The first 12 month period is measured from the date that the PTO service Registration Form is received by Educonnex from the Client.
At the conclusion of each 12 month period, any of the Client’s nominated PTO administrators will be required to complete a renewal of the subscription, for the next 12 month Annual Subscription period.
This renewal process must be completed each year before regular administrative access to PTO is restored for the next year. Subsequent 12-month periods for an Annual Subscription will commence from the date that the renewal process is completed.
The Annual Subscription Fee will vary from time to time in line with Educonnex subscription pricing, as well as any written agreed arrangements between the parties, which includes email communications. Invoices for an Annual Subscription will be issued at the commencement of parent bookings for the first event within the 12 month period.
All invoices for PTO are payable within 7 days of issuance. Educonnex reserves the right to terminate a Client’s access to PTO where invoices are more than 1 month overdue, such termination may lead to the irretrievable deletion of existing data.
