KWSCreate Terms and Conditions 

Thank you for choosing KWSCreate, your one-stop app for Key Word Sign line drawings, video demonstrations and templates to make customised resources. 

With over 1000 line-drawings, 850 videos, a library of templates and now with Picture Communication Symbols, you can create engaging resources to support learning, communication and inclusion at home, school, work and in the community.  

These Terms and Conditions (Terms) apply to your use of KWSCreate. KWSCreate is a subscription-based service, accessed through the ‘Members’ section of the Key Word Sign Australia website www.kwsa.org.au/ (Website).  

Both KWSCreate and the Website are owned and operated by Scope (Aust) Ltd (ABN 63 004 280 871), trading as Key Word Sign Australia (referred to as “we” or “us”).

In addition to these Terms, your use of the Website and KWSCreate is subject to the KWSA Website Terms of Use (www.kwsa.org.au/terms-conditions/) and our Privacy Policy which is available here: www.scopeaust.org.au/privacy-policy/ 

Before purchasing a subscription to KWSCreate, you must accept these Terms and Conditions (Terms).  Please read these carefully before completing your purchase. 

1. Your subscription

Currently KWSCreate is available as a 6-month, 12-month, or 24-month individual subscription, or as a 12-month group subscription – this means that you can choose the best value option for your needs. 

Your subscription will automatically renew at the end of the current subscription period, unless you decide to cancel or opt-out.  We will send you a notification email one month before the scheduled renewal date, confirming the renewal date, the renewal term and the amount to be charged for renewal.

If you wish to renew your subscription at that point, you do not need to do anything further. Your credit card will be charged, and a record of your purchase will appear in your account history. 

If you do not wish to renew your subscription, you will have the option to cancel through the link provided in the email.  

You may also cancel your subscription at any time through KWSCreate.  We are unable to provide a partial refund if you cancel during the term of your subscription, however you will not be charged any renewal fee at the end of the current subscription period and will retain access to KWSCreate until that subscription period expires. 

2. Your use of KWSCreate and KWSCreate resources

While your subscription is active, you may access KWSCreate through the ‘Members’ section of the Website. 

By using KWSCreate, you can view an extensive library of Key Word Sign content and create customised resources using templates, line drawings, picture communication symbols and other content.

Your subscription is for your personal use only. You are not permitted to share your log-in details with another person or use your subscription for any commercial purpose, including to on-sell your subscription to any third party. 

3. Pricing

We charge in Australian dollars and by purchasing your subscription you agree to pay the subscription price at the payment intervals stated at the time you order your subscription. Discounts only apply if they are included in your subscription order.
