Your password. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password, and you will be responsible for all usage of your user account and/or user name, whether authorized or not authorized by you. You agree to immediately notify Newsroom 101 of any unauthorized use of your user account, username or password. You are responsible for remembering your username and password.
Enrollment period. Students enrolled in a course that uses Newsroom 101. Your enrollment period is the duration of the course, or 120 days, whichever is shorter. Enrolling late does not give you an extended period. Student data will be deleted after the course is over.
Enrollment period. Users not enrolled in a course. Your enrollment period is 120 days, except your enrollment may be terminated if 30 continuous days pass in which you do not log onto the site. (This situation usually arises only when a person finishes Newsroom 101 quickly, and the account remains open but unused.)
Refund policy. We understand that college students sometimes enroll in courses and then drop them, generally during the add-drop period. Upon request, we will issue a full refund if you enroll in Newsroom 101 while enrolled in a course requiring it, then drop that course during the first three weeks of the term, contingent on the following. No refunds will be issued if you:
Persons who enroll in Newsroom 101 on their own, not in conjunction with a course, are not eligible for a refund.
Enrollment may not be transferred or shared. When you enroll in Newsroom 101, you are paying for only your own use of the material for the duration of a course or 120 days, whichever is less. You may not transfer your enrollment in Newsroom 101 to anyone else, permit anyone else to log in using your account, or permit anyone else to complete any exercises using your account. Allowing unauthorized use of your account could result in termination of your enrollment.
Enroll early in the semester. You agree, whenever possible, to begin Newsroom 101 early, so that you can learn how to log in, learn how the exercises work, and get all your questions answered early. Do not put off starting the exercises, and be sure to spread them throughout the semester. Do not cram a lot of exercises into the last week or two. Students enrolling after the first two weeks of the semester may find support limited or delayed.
The site keeps logs. In the normal course of delivering Newsroom 101, the Moodle software logs many of the things you do on the site, and the IP address you log in from. These password-protected logs are an integral part of the educational software and are accessible only to teachers, other authorized personnel, and course administrators. If you are using Newsroom 101 outside of a course, your logs are accessible only to the Newsroom 101 administrator in the normal course of maintaining the site. These logs will be deleted from the online site after the course is over, along with other student information.
Newsroom 101 is not for children. Newsroom 101 was designed to be used by college-age students and adults.

In such use, Newsroom 101 disclaims all responsibility, and responsibility lies with the supervising adult. By using Newsroom 101, you affirm that you are 18 or older, or you are under the direct supervision of an adult who is responsible for your actions.
