Welcome to ReadClover
PLEASE READ THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS (TERMS) BEFORE USING THE SERVICES (AS DEFINED BELOW). THEY ARE THE RULES AND REQUIREMENTS THAT APPLY TO THE SERVICES. DO NOT PURCHASE A SUBSCRIPTION, REGISTER FOR AN ACCOUNT (AS DEFINED BELOW), OR USE THE SERVICES IF YOU ARE NOT IN AGREEMENT WITH THESE TERMS.
This RedCloverReader.com service (the “Service) is owned and operated by Red Clover Reader, Inc (referred to as “Red Clover Reader”, “we”, “us”, or “our” herein). This Agreement sets forth the terms and conditions under which ALL USERS OF THE RED CLOVER READER WEB SITE AGREE TO BE BOUND. Other pages of this site may contain further terms and conditions to which you also agree to be bound. If you do not agree to this Agreement in its entirety, you may not use our site or services.
Any person who establishes an account with Red Clover Reader will be referred to as the “Account Holder” in this Agreement. “Account” means the account registered to any user, pursuant to the registration procedures for the Service. The terms of this Agreement apply to all users of the Service via the Account, whether or not they are the Account Holder. The Account Holder is responsible for making each of the users of their Account (and anyone else they may allow access to their Account) aware of the terms of this Agreement and for ensuring compliance. The Account Holder for an Account is entirely liable for all activities conducted through that Account.
We reserve the right, in our sole and absolute discretion, to change, modify, add, or remove (collectively, “Change” or the “Changes”) portions of this Agreement at any time, and Changes will be effective immediately upon posting of the revised Agreement at the domain or subdomain where the prior version was posted. It is your responsibility to review these terms. Although notification of Changes to this Agreement may from time to time be posted on the Service or sent via e-mail or postal mail, such notification does not waive or otherwise excuse the your affirmative obligation to review the Agreement for Changes, and to understand and agree to the most up-to-date terms of the Service.

Red Clover Reader reserves the right to change the amount of, or basis for determining, any fees or charges for the Service, and to institute new fees or charges effective upon prior notice to Account Holders via the email address of record on the Account Holder’s account or posting upon the domain or subdomain of the Service or any other method that is designed to provide reasonable notice to Account Holders. Red Clover Reader reserves the right to provide the Service at no charge for promotional reasons or otherwise (such as a free subscription or trial). PROVISION OF PROMOTIONAL TRIALS OR OTHER PREFERRED OR DISCOUNTED ACCESS TO SOME MEMBERS (INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, FULL OR LIMITED SUBSCRIPTIONS OFFERED FREE OF CHARGE) SHALL NOT OBLIGATE RED CLOVER READER TO PROVIDE SUCH PROMOTIONS, DISCOUNTS, OR PREFERRED ACCESS TO OTHER MEMBERS.
Each Account Holder agrees to pay all charges to the Account, including applicable taxes, in accordance with billing terms in effect at the time the fee or charge becomes payable. Account Holders must provide Red Clover Reader with valid information as requested during the registration process, which may include (but is not limited to) credit card information, promotional codes, or other means of payment.
If you have reason to believe that your Account is no longer secure (for example, in the event of a loss, theft, or unauthorized disclosure or use of your Account ID, Password, or any credit, debit, PayPal, or charge card information stored on the Service), you must promptly change your Password and notify Red Clover Reader of the problem (by giving notice as described in the Notice section below) to avoid possible liability for any unauthorized charges to your Account.
If Account Holder is paying by credit card (including debit and other charge cards):
Red Clover Reader shall charge the Account Holder’s credit card on the date Account Holder subscribes to the Service or if you have signed up for a free trial period, Red Clover Reader shall charge the Account Holder’s credit card on the day that the free trial expires. Thereafter, Red Clover Reader will automatically renew and charge the Account Holder as follows:
Upon every one (1)-month anniversary of the first billing date for monthly subscriptions
Upon every six (6)-month anniversary of the first billing date for semiannual subscriptions if available
Upon every one (1)-year anniversary of the first billing date for annual subscriptions if available
The renewal charge shall be equal to or less than the original subscription price, unless otherwise notified in advance by Red Clover Reader via the email address of record on the Account Holder’s account or posting upon the domain or subdomain of the Service or any other method that is designed to provide reasonable notice to Account Holders. You may notify Red Clover Reader that you wish to cancel your subscription at any time, but such notice shall be provided in writing. Red Clover Reader agrees that it will terminate your Account upon receipt of notification from the Account Holder. No refunds for used or unused subscriptions (including those with time remaining on them) will be offered in the event of a cancellation. We will immediately terminate a subscription upon notification by the Account Holder and Account Holder will not be entitled to any remaining paid period of use remaining on the account.
Your right to use the Service is subject to any limits established by Red Clover Reader or by your credit card issuer.

7. Parental Consent
The Account Holder will submit, maintain, and keep up to date a correct e-mail address and other Account information.

Why & What? Red Clover Reader is
addressing parents' concerns surrounding poor quality screentime and lack of diversity in
kids' books. The platform features high quality, diverse and value-focused kids' content
from independent Authors for use at home and in school. Some of the social values the
platform helps foster include cultural diversity, empathy, perspective taking and emotional
Is this for me? Red Clover Reader is a
dedicated community of talented and passionate indie kids' Authors. Our members are parents
themselves (in most cases) and educators who have the kids' best interests at heart. Some
of our current members include Raven Howell, Pam C. Rice, Maria Ashworth, Myron Campbell,
Michelle Person, Erik Island and Natalie Kennedy.
What's in it for me?

Getting a chance to contribute your expertise to our neat community, to help
parents with raising happy and well-rounded kids.
Red Clover Reader is a developing community of Authors working together to change the
way Independent Authors market their work. After all, we become Authors to share our
vision of the world, our message, and our stories; not to become marketing experts.
Unfortunately, the current reality of being successful as Independent Authors
(especially self-published Authors) works out to be 90% marketing (things like Author
platforms, email lists, advertising, and influencer outreach, trade shows, networking
on social media) and only 10% writing. The Red Clover community is working toward
changing this order. Our goal is to give Authors their time back to focus more on their
craft and less on self-promotion. We want to give you the type of exposure previously
