      • Cancel or revoke CEC Club access from an individual's account due to violation of ACE's Code of Ethics
      • Discontinue the sale and/or support of any continuing education course at any time, to cancel, correct, or update content based on current industry standards, guidelines, and/or technological advances
    • Only select continuing education courses are available as part of the CEC Club; when signing up for CEC Club, customers can access every course currently available as part of CEC Club
    • When CEC Club subscription expires, customer will not have access to incomplete continuing education courses added to their My ACE Account as part of their CEC Club subscription.
    • Continuing education courses that were completed during the CEC Club subscription period will remain in a customer's My ACE Account unless the course is discontinued (later) by ACE as per ACE's regular continuing education policies

    • Continuing education courses that were completed prior to CEC Club subscription by customer can be retaken, but additional continuing education credits will not be provided for retaking courses already completed
    • Continuing education course credit completed within a renewal period can only be applied to that renewal period; continuing education credits cannot be 'carried over' or applied to a future or previous renewal period
    • Continuing education credits do not get applied to recertification until after the original expiration date (if you renew early, CECs for your next renewal period will not be applied until after your original expiration date)

    • CEC Club subscription can be active across multiple renewal periods, thus continuing education credits completed as part of the CEC Club can be provided across two separate renewal periods. However, as previously stated, continuing education credits only apply to the renewal period that is current at the time of completion of the course and may not be carried over to future renewal periods.

    • In order to redeem a certification renewal voucher, ACE Certified Professionals must meet all renewal requirements and still move through the purchase process required for certification renewal.

This transaction must be separate from the original qualifying purchase.
    • There is no limit to the number of certification renewal vouchers an ACE Certified Professional may receive.

    • Certification renewal vouchers are non-transferable and hold no cash value.
    • Certification renewal voucher promotions override all other discount programs and may not be used in conjunction with other discounts.
    • Refunds on materials will not be granted to those who have redeemed their certification renewal voucher.
    • Those who receive refunds on materials are not eligible to redeem their certification renewal voucher.

    Payment Plan

    • I agree to pay the first installment, and thereafter to pay any remaining payments, which will be made through automatic charges to my credit card or debit card. On your final due date, all other amounts owing under this Agreement shall also be due. All payments shall be made to the American Council on Exercise (ACE). No bills or invoices will be issued for any payments, except that a bill or invoice may be issued for past due amounts. Any past due amounts shall remain due and owning even if a bill or invoice is not issued. You may prepay your entire outstanding balance at any time with no penalty. There will not be any interest or finance charges if payments are made on time. A fee of $25 will be charged for all declined payments and your account will be placed on hold status until payment is received. If a payment declines after you have sat for the exam, your certification will be put on hold and not issued until full payment is received.
    • Partial payments of the amounts due under this Agreement are not allowed. Should you default in the payment of any installment when due, ACE may at its option declare the unpaid total of payments to be immediately due and payable without demand or notice. You agree that you may be held responsible for paying the expenses ACE incurs in attempting to collect any amounts due under this Agreement that are past due. For all past-due amounts, interest shall accrue at the rate of 10% per annum or the highest rated allowed by applicable law, whichever is lower.
    • ACE may delay or waive the enforcement of any of the provisions of the Agreement, including your promise to make timely payments, without losing the right to enforce them later. You agree to waive your right to receive a notice of any waiver or delay. This Agreement supersedes all prior oral or written understanding between you and ACE and constitutes the entire agreement with respect to the subject matter. The terms and conditions of this Agreement shall not be modified, amended or supplemented except in writing and signed by authorized representatives of all Parties or except as otherwise provided herein. Should any term of this Agreement be deemed invalid or unenforceable, the remaining terms shall remain in full force and effect. The validity, interpretation and performance of this Agreement will be governed by the laws of the State of California, USA, excluding its conflict-of-laws provisions, and further excluding the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods. The Parties irrevocably submit to the nonexclusive jurisdiction of the courts in San Diego, California, USA.
    • NOTICE: ANY HOLDER OF THIS CONSUMER CREDIT CONTRACT IS SUBJECT TO ALL CLAIMS AND DEFENSES WHICH THE DEBTOR COULD ASSERT AGAINST THE SELLER OF GOODS OR SERVICES OBTAINED PURSUANT HERETO OR WITH THE PROCEEDS HEREOF. RECOVERY HEREUNDER BY THE DEBTOR SHALL NOT EXCEED AMOUNTS PAID BY THE DEBTOR HEREUNDER.
