Thank you for your interest in an AncestryClassroom™ Program (the 'Program'). Each day, users of the Ancestry® family of websites utilize our historical records to discover and research their family histories, and the goal of AncestryClassroom™ is to help students discover, preserve and share their own family history. If your school or school district are granted access to this Program, your students will be able to access classroom versions of Ancestry®, Fold3®, and Newspapers.com™ Basic, from computers within the IP ranges you specify in your application, by visiting https://www.ancestryclassroom.com, https://www.ancestryclassroom.com.au, https://www.ancestryclassroom.co.uk, http://www.fold3.com/, and http://www.newspapers.com/ (the “Program Websites”).
Below are the terms and conditions (the “Agreement”) that you must read and agree to before applying for, being considered for, and being awarded access to the Program Websites provided under the Program. By submitting a Program application through the AncestryClassroom™ website, you are agreeing that you are legally bound by this Agreement, which is between you and Ancestry.com Operations L.P.
