Overview and History
PBIS Rewards is a service of Motivating Systems, LLC dba PBIS Rewards. The PBIS Rewards Terms of Service are specific to the PBIS Rewards Platform service that is used by Schools, School Districts, and other educational and educational-like institutions. Separately there are the PBIS Rewards Website Terms of Service which cover the use of the website www.pbisrewards.com and which is used to explain and market the PBIS Rewards service.
PBIS Rewards is contracted to Schools, School Districts, and other educational and educational-like institutions. It is not sold to individual teachers. The Terms of Service are the PBIS Rewards Terms of Service that apply when a school has not negotiated a separate Terms of Service (referenced as “Negotiated Terms of Service”) through a contract or through a separate agreement or addendum and which may be titled under a name different than Terms of Service or be part of a Data Sharing Agreement with the School/School District. The PBIS Rewards Terms of Service will always have a Version date and an archive of previous versions is always available. A School without Negotiated Terms of Service agreement will operate fully under the PBIS Rewards Terms of Service that were active at the time of their signed Sales Agreement or on the date that they submit a Purchase Order. If the PBIS Rewards Terms of Service are updated after a School/School District has ordered the PBIS Rewards service, the original dated version shall still be the applicable PBIS Rewards Terms of Service for that School/School District unless the School/School District notifies PBIS Rewards in writing that they are adopting the new version of the PBIS Rewards Terms of Service. PBIS Rewards will notify the School/School District that a new version is available and that the School/School District may adopt the new Terms of Service. The School/School District is not required to adopt the new PBIS Rewards Terms of Service.
Negotiated Terms of Service may:
- Fully replace the PBIS Rewards Terms of Service. The Negotiated Terms of Service should be explicit that the PBIS Rewards Terms of Service do not apply to the School/School District.
- Partially replace the PBIS Rewards Terms of Service. Any provisions of the PBIS Rewards Terms of Service that are not covered in the Negotiated Terms of Service will still apply. If a provision in the Negotiated Terms of Service differs from a similar or same provision of the PBIS Rewards Terms of Service, then the language for that provision in the Negotiated Terms of Service will apply and supersede the provision in the PBIS Rewards Terms of Service.
