  2.  e-Learning Offerings.
    1. “e-Learning” is a web-based learning environment that provides on-demand access to e-Learning Content.  When an e-learning subscription (“Subscription”) is acquired, access to the e-Learning Content included with that Subscription will be made available for the duration of the Subscription period (e.g., one-year for an annual Subscription).  The Subscription period for each Subscription shall be as set forth in the applicable e-Learning Order.
    2. e-Learning access is licensed on a named user account basis.  The number of named users for each Subscription shall be limited to the quantities for which Customer has validly acquired access.  A user account may not be shared or used by anyone other than the one employee (or one individual, where the Customer is an individual) to whom the named user account is assigned.  Each user shall maintain the security of his/her account information (e.g., User ID and Password), and shall not share or disclose account information or e-Learning Content to others.  Shared, group or generic User IDs or Passwords are strictly prohibited. Once assigned to a user, a user account may not be transferred to anyone else, except upon MSC's prior written consent which MSC may withhold in its sole discretion.
    3. Access to e-Learning Content requires each user to register, create or establish an individual online account at an MSCdesignated website (e.g., MSC Learning Center, or successor site).  In addition to these Terms, each individual user shall comply with MSC’s then-current standard e-Learning terms of use (“Terms of Use”) posted or otherwise made available on the applicable MSC-designated website.  In the event of a conflict, these Terms prevail over any conflicting Terms of Use.
  3. Payment & Taxes.  
    1. Fees, Charges, Taxes and Payment.  Customer shall pay in full all fees payable under this agreement, including all e-Learning related fees set forth or referenced in the e-Learning Order.  Payment terms shall be as set forth in the e-Learning Order.  Fees are exclusive of all applicable sales, use, value added, and other taxes, and Customer will be responsible for payment of all such taxes (other than taxes based on MSC’s net income), and any related penalties and interest, payable in connection with the purchase or provision of MSC’s training offerings.  Any amount not paid when due will bear interest until paid at the rate of 11/2% per month or the maximum rate of interest allowed by applicable law, whichever is less. In addition, MSC may, without waiving any other rights or remedies to which it may be entitled, suspend access to a Customer account until all outstanding invoices have been paid and/or seek collection of all amounts due, including reasonable legal fees and costs of collection.  All fees due and payable for e-Learning shall be non-cancelable and the sums paid nonrefundable. 
    2. If an MSC e-Learning offering is ordered by Customer from an authorized MSC distributor, then fees to be paid by Customer to distributor (and related payment terms) will be as agreed between the distributor and Customer.
