Revision History to Scoir's College Terms of Service

Kevin McCloskey Updated by Kevin McCloskey

We periodically make changes to the terms and conditions contained in our Terms of Service with colleges. Most of these changes are immaterial and are intended to provide greater clarity and/or to comply with the ever-changing landscape of laws and regulations. A revision history is contained below:


October 1, 2021  

1. While arguably self-evident, we included a statement about our obligations to report and remit any sales tax collected from our customers to the proper governmental authority.

2. We committed to maintaining records relating to fees charged to customers for a period of 5 years after your subscription term ends and making these records available to you for audit purposes.

3. If we negotiate a settlement related to our indemnity obligations, we cannot bind you to the settlement without your prior written consent.

4. We clarification purposes, we added statements acknowledging our obligations to comply with certain federal laws.

5. We modified some legal language regarding statements about our respective authority to enter into these terms of service.

6. We updated all references effected by changes 1 through 5 above.


April 9, 2021  

1. We clarified your obligations regarding compliance with FERPA when we provide you Student Records, because FERPA will not apply in all cases.

2. We understand that your brand is important to you. Our previous "publicity" language either permitted us to reference you as a customer or allowed you to opt out completely. We now provide a middle option that allows us to use your brand when referencing you as a customer, but only with your prior written consent.


February 18, 2021  

1. We clarified our notification obligations and reinstatement process in the event an account is suspended.

2. We now indemnify you for any IP infringement claims.

3. We now address two items that are often required by procurement offices.

4. We clarified governing law for our university customers located outside the U.S.A.

5. We updated section references, etc. related to the changes detailed above.


January 11, 2021  

1. We've removed our right to unilaterally modify our terms of service, now giving you the ability to accept or decline any proposed changes to these terms.

2. We removed what was effectively an embedded "lightweight NDA" because no information is being shared under this Agreement that necessitates the previous confidentiality provisions. For customers who want to share their CRM data with us to assess attribution, we now offer a “Data Sharing and Privacy Agreement” that covers information shared for that purpose. The Data Sharing and Privacy Agreement is a separate contract, not a "supplemental term" to our Terms of Service.

3. We removed the "auto-renewal" feature of our contract term, which eliminated the need for including "changes to fees" and "termination for convenience" provisions.

4. We added details about our obligations to comply with accessibility standards, maintain adequate business insurance, and comply with equal opportunity laws.

5. We extended our payment terms to Net 30.

6. We clarified that the "Publicity" clause only gives us the ability to reference you as a customer on our digital properties and that you can remove this right at any time by filling out a simple webform.

7. We accounted for delivery of legal notices required to be presented in physical form.

8. We included a bunch of clarifying language changes that you've requested over the past several months and also updated references and terminology necessitated by the changes listed above (and fixed a couple typos along the way).


October 9, 2020  

We modified actions we might take in the event of non-payment to make them consistent with changes made September 18, 2020 regarding auto-renewals. Simply put, if you don't pay your invoices, we'll suspend or terminate your use of Scoir but we won't come after you for payment.


September 27, 2020  

We corrected language to make it clear that, while you are responsible for the actions of your account users, you are not responsible for the actions of any third parties.

We added additional clarifying language that our right to use your Customer Information terminates when your agreement with Scoir ends.

We changed the governing law and jurisdiction covering our terms of service from our location (Delaware) to your location.

We added additional clarifying language that our right to identify you as a Customer terminates when (if) you cease being a customer. This revised section was also excluded from "surviving provision" since the rights granted terminate when the agreement ends.


September 18, 2020  

We clarified language regarding "auto-renewals" of your subscriptions. First, we provided for the fact that some plans might not be renewable and that, if applicable, this will be stipulated in your Order Form. Second, to ensure no customers are trapped into paying for software they no longer want or intend to use, we added a new "Termination for Convenience" section. This new Section 7.2 effectively states that, if you don't want to renew your subscription for another year, don't pay the invoice and our agreement with you will terminate.

We also clarified that we will delete all Customer Information when our agreement with you ends. If you ask, we'll provide you a copy of that information before we delete it.

How did we do?
