2.1 The Bronze account is only available to individuals and small community groups. For business use, the Silver or above accounts must be used. Those who break this condition will have their accounts deleted without warning.

2.2 A reduced rate on the Bronze account is offered at Tiki-Toki's discretion to school and university students. Tiki-Toki will not provide refunds if a user bought the Bronze account at the standard rate and did not inform us within the first month that they qualify for the discounted student rate. Tiki-Toki will however reduce the future rate for a subscription if a user qualifies for the student rate.

If the Teacher decides to stop their subscription, or downgrade their account, all the pupil accounts linked to the Teacher account will be downgraded to our free standard account level. Pupil accounts that are removed from a Teacher account by the account owner are downgraded to the free standard account immediately.

2.6 When you stop paying for a Bronze, Silver or Teacher account, you agree that your account will be downgraded to the free level, which offers a single un-embeddable timeline and that any extra timelines you may have created will not be editable or viewable, until you re-upgrade your account.
