QUILS™: ES is a web-based screener and reporting system designed to screen and identify potential language delays in students 3 through 5 years according to their age group and may also be used with 6-year-olds.

This Agreement covers the current and all future iterations of the system. QUILS™: ES is protected by copyright laws and international copyright treaties, as well as other intellectual property laws and treaties. QUILS™: ES is licensed, not sold. For purposes of this Agreement:
(a) “Site” means the portions of QUILS™: ES that can be accessed only by use of a username and password.

(c) “Content” means the text, pictures, sound, graphics, logos, marks, symbols, software, and tools used in conjunction with, or otherwise made available through, the Site by Brookes Publishing Co.

(e) “Account” means the specific relationship with Brookes Publishing Co. established to provide for Your access to the Site and Services.
(f) “Account Holder” means the party purchasing access (or acquiring rights to a free trial) that provides access to the Site and Services for You.

(c) Technical Requirements. The Technical Requirements, posted on the Home page of the Site (es.quilscreener.com), list the devices, operating systems, Internet requirements, and other technical specifications that the QUILS: ES will function properly with.

Once access is provided for User accounts, Users will have the same rights and permissions within that location as the Account Holder, as far as creating and editing Student Records, which includes but is not limited to adding Student Records, editing Student Profile information, starting, continuing, or deleting screenings, or generating reports.

The trial continues for thirty (30) days, at which point the trial will expire.
