If an upcoming update to the Service has not been announced by Albert at least one (1) month in advance and it significantly impairs your benefit from the Service (e.g. your teaching materials are completely removed from the Service), you have the right to terminate the Agreement and if you also use the Paid Service, you can request a refund for your subscription fee up to a reasonable amount that corresponds to the remaining subscription period. You can request a refund if you also terminate the Agreement (see point 4 below). If you continue to use the Service after a change has been made, you will be deemed to have approved the change.

When the trial subscription expires, we may automatically charge you for the applicable paid subscription from the first day after the expiration date, on a recurring monthly basis, by providing your payment information for the subscription and you accept that we charge you this fee using the said payment details. If you do not want this fee, you must cancel the current paid subscription through your account's subscription page or close your account before the trial subscription expires, this can be done no earlier than 48 hours after the account is created.

This allows teachers who are registered for the Service to print and copy material for the use in classes, and therefore it allows the students to use material from the Service in group work and reports for the school.
