terms of service

Coder Kids, Inc. is our official name and we go by Coder Kids in the day-to-day. Coder Kids provides the following terms of service to you. We may update these occasionally as we grow, learn from our members, and figure out what works well and what probably doesn’t work so great.

What we offer you

Coder Kids provides computer science and engineering training to elementary and middle school kids who are members of the Coder Kids studio. This training includes our curriculum, personalized instruction from our trained tutors who are experienced coders themselves, our monthly hosted SEED events where Coder Kids share their projects with their friends and family at the Coder Kids studio, use of our Apple iMacs and iPads at the Coder Kids studio, and eligibility to earn Coder Kids achievement certificates, among other benefits.

How it works

We offer four month, six month and annual memberships. We will charge your credit card on a monthly recurring basis from the time you enroll. Our memberships renew automatically at the expiration of each term. The first month membership will automatically renew to an annual membership. If you don’t want to renew your membership, let us know before your current membership expires by stopping the Coder Kids studio or sending us an email at hello@coder-kids.com.

Coder Kids register for 50-minute sessions. Coder Kids can register for sessions at the Coder Kids studio as many days every week as we are open. We are open Mondays through Saturdays, with some exceptions for holidays, which we will provide you notices about. To keep the experience fresh and fun (for everybody!), Coder Kids can register for only one session at the Coder Kids studio per day.

Discounts

We love big families! Siblings memberships are discounted: 10% for the first sibling, 20% for the second sibling, and an additional 10% for each additional sibling.

Bring a friend! We offer discounts of $100 whenever you refer a friend new to Coder Kids who becomes a member with a four-month, six-month, or annual membership.

How to end your membership

We will always work diligently and passionately to delight our members with the Coder Kids’ culture, experience, products, and services. We also understand that we may not be a perfect fit for everyone and circumstances change, so to be fair you may terminate your membership to Coder Kids by talking to us at the Coder Kids studio or by sending us an email at hello@coder-kids.com.

The four-month, six-month, and one-year memberships can be terminated at any time. You will be charged for the month you cancel your membership. There is no termination fee to cancel your membership. 

We care about your privacy

We will never share or sell your information. Naturally, we follow the law and will cooperate with US government agencies and law enforcement properly authorized access to your information.  We keep our privacy policy here for your reference.

Almost done with the lawyer stuff
The Coder Kids Terms of Service constitutes the entire agreement between you and Coder Kids and governs your use of the Coder Kids services, superseding any prior version of this Terms of Service between you and Coder Kids with respect to the Coder Kids services. You also may be subject to additional terms and conditions that may apply when you use or purchase certain other Coder Kids services, affiliate services, third-party content or third-party software.

Choice of law and forum

You and Coder Kids each agree that the Terms of Service and the relationship between the parties shall be governed by the laws of the state of Virginia without regard to its conflict of law provisions and that any and all claims, causes of action or disputes, regardless of theory, arising out of or relating to the Terms of Service, or the relationship between you and Coder Kids shall be brought exclusively in the courts located in Fairfax County. You and Coder Kids agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the courts located within the county of Fairfax, Virginia, and agree to waive any and all objections to the exercise of jurisdiction over the parties by such courts and to venue in such courts.

Waiver and severability of terms

The failure of Coder Kids to exercise or enforce any right or provision of the Coder Kids Terms of Service shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of the Coder Kids Terms of Service is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the parties' intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of the Coder Kids Terms of Service remain in full force and effect.

No right of survivorship and non-transferability

You agree that your Coder Kids account is non-transferable and any rights to your Coder Kids services or contents within your account terminate upon your death. Upon receipt of a copy of a death certificate, your account may be terminated and all contents therein permanently deleted.

Statute of limitations

You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to use of the Coder Kids services or the Coder Kids Terms of Service must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred. The section titles in the Coder Kids Terms of Service are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect.
