You may cancel the Services at any time; provided that you will not be entitled to any refund of the fees otherwise due in the event of such cancellation if Story2 has not received notice of such cancellation at least two (2) days prior to the date upon which the Services are to be provided or the subscription renewed.

If a lesson is cancelled by Story2 and is not rescheduled, a prorated refund will be granted to you.

Story2 takes protection of copyrights, both our own and others’, very seriously. In connection with our Site, we have adopted and implemented a policy respecting copyright law that provides for the removal of any infringing materials or Postings and for the termination, in appropriate circumstances, of users of our Site and/or Services who are repeat infringers of intellectual property rights, including copyrights. If you believe that one of our users is, through the use of our Site, unlawfully infringing the copyright(s) in a work, and wish to have the allegedly infringing material removed, the following information in the form of a written notification (pursuant to 17 U.S.C. § 512(c)) must be provided to our designated copyright agent: (a) your physical or electronic signature; (b) identification of the copyrighted work(s) that you claim to have been infringed; (c) identification of the materials or Postings on our Site that you claim are infringing and that you request us to remove; (d) sufficient information to permit us to locate such Postings or material; (e) your address, telephone number and email address; (f) a statement that you have a good faith belief that use of the objectionable materials is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent or under the law; and (g) a statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that you are either the owner of the copyright that has allegedly been infringed or that you are authorized to act on behalf of the copyright owner. Please note that, pursuant to 17 U.S.C. § 512(f), any misrepresentation of material fact (falsities) in a written notification automatically subjects the complaining party to liability for any damages, costs and attorney’s fees incurred by us in connection with the written notification and allegation of copyright infringement.
