    1. You are capable of entering into a legally binding contract with My Nursing CPD Pty Ltd, you are authorised and able to make payment via the method you have chosen, the payment information you have provided is correct, and your purchase is not made for the purpose of commercial resale or for any other improper use.

That if you are agreeing to purchase an annual subscription and opt for a quarterly payment, that you will keep your payment details up-to-date and that there will be sufficient funds available via your payment method for every one of the 4 quarterly payments at the time payment is due and any ongoing payments that you have agreed to.
  2. A contract for purchase is formed once we have accepted your payment and issued you with a receipt number.

Price

  1. All prices displayed on the websites and Apps are in Australian Dollars and inclusive of GST, unless otherwise indicated.

Access to CPD modules and expiry of pay-as-you-go credits

  1. Annual subscribers will have access to the entire library of CPD modules and any newly released CPD modules for as long as their annual subscription is current and paid.
  2. Pay-as-you-go subscribers who purchase a pay-as-you-go package:
    1. Your credits will expire one year after purchase. They may be used any time before the expiry date.
    2. Once you open a CPD module, the CPD module remains accessible for a period of 1 year after which time, it is no longer available and in order to access the CPD module again it will need to be repurchased.

Certificates

  1. A certificate of completion is issued to subscribers upon the successful completion of a CPD module and associated quiz.
  2. The certificate of completion will automatically appear in the user’s My Midwifery and Nursing CPD ePortfolio and is downloadable and printable anytime.
  3. Only one certificate of completion is issued for a module to an individual user per annum. Users may use and reuse the same CPD module, subject to these terms and conditions, however, in order to be issued a new certificate of completion, the module will need to be repurchased (via a pay-as-you-go package) or via a new annual subscription.

    This rule helps our members to avoid doubling up on their CPD unintentionally.

This means you will not be charged any further fees following the expiry of your subscription.

Payment method, failure to pay, and suspension of annual subscriber account

  1. Payment can be made with a valid credit card (Visa or Mastercard) or via PayPal.
  2. We will deduct all amounts owing at the time of processing your order. We may deduct amounts owing from your payment method any time on or following the due date.
  3. If you are an annual subscriber who has opted to pay quarterly, in the event that your payment method fails on two or more attempts over a period of 2 days, your account will be suspended (including your access to your ePortfolio). We will contact you via the email address you provided us and request that you update your payment method. We will continue to attempt to deduct from your account until payment is successful.
  4. In the event that we are unable to successfully process payment with 30 days of your monthly subscription being due, we may commence debt recovery procedures.

    In the event that your account remains outstanding for a period of 30 days or more, the entire balance of your annual subscription will fall due and payable.

    As much as we hate doing it, we do report unpaid invoices to a credit reporting agency and this can detrimently effect your credit rating. So... annual subscriptions that are on a quarterly payment option need to be paid and if they are not paid we report in a manner consistent with all applicable laws.
