This document also applies in full to www.early-reading.com, and the terms www.teachtheworldtoread.com and www.early-reading.com are interchangeable and should be read as the same.

These Terms of Use (“Terms of Use”) form an agreement between the website user (“you”, “your”) and us. You must not access or use this website unless you accept all of these Terms of Use. By accessing and using this website you confirm your acceptance of these Terms of Use.

Copyright: The Reading Program identified as Fantastic Phonics is owned by Fantastic Phonics/Jennifer Cooper, and is Published by Fantastic Phonics. Copyright resides wholly with Jennifer Cooper, dated 1998. (© Jennifer Cooper 1998)

Using Fantastic Phonics: Fantastic Phonics provides a learn to read program (Fantastic Phonics). At our discretion, we donate or waive the cost of the program for charities and not-for-profit agencies. However, this does not imply that the program is free. The license is provided on the basis of the conditions in this document and if a breach occurs, the value of the program reverts to the value of the commercial license that would have applied.

The Fantastic Phonics license retains all the characteristics of a commercial license with regards to copyright, resale and correct citation of author and publisher. It is not an OEM product, or a product licensed under a GNU General Public License (GNU GPL or GPL) license.

You must properly cite the author (Jennifer Cooper-Trent) and the Publisher (www.FantasticPhonics.com) in all references, reports, articles and webpages that discuss your use of the reading program. For example, if you mention “decodable readers” you must insert “Fantastic Phonics” immediately before the mention. This applies to (but is not limited to) phrases such as “reading program”, “learn to read program” , “literacy program” or any combination of words which refers to your use of “Fantastic Phonics”.

You must not pass the program off as your own creation, or embed the program in your own work without prior permission. Where permission is granted for embedding, you must properly cite the author and publisher. This is a legal requirement.

You are not permitted to resell Fantastic Phonics, provide Fantastic Phonics to any third party for sale, or provide the Fantastic Phonics to any third party except for direct learning (e.g. a student). You are not permitted to change the program in any way without permission. You cannot remove the correct citation of the copyright owner, or the title page of any book, under any circumstances.

You cannot use any part of Fantastic Phonics in another publication without prior permission.

All licenses granted by Fantastic Phonics are limited to 12 months from date of granting unless expressly agreed to by Fantastic Phonics and explicitly included in a license.

Length of License: Unless otherwise specified, all licenses exist for 12 months. At the end of the license period, you must purchase or apply for another license. Otherwise all copies, either in electronic form or printed form, must be destroyed, and use of the program must be discontinued.

At our discretion, Fantastic Phonics will provide licenses which are not based on a time period, but based on other conditions, such as number of printed copies, number of students, number of schools, number of user logins, a specific project or for inclusion in another publisher form,  either electronic or printed. Where this occurs, all other conditions of this license continue to apply, excepting for the variation specified in the License Variation.
