Subscription Plan Policy
User acknowledges that the terms and conditions of this National Association of Boards of Pharmacy® (NABP®) and National Association of Boards of Pharmacy Foundation® (NABPF®) (collectively “NABP”) Subscription Plan Policy (“Policy”) apply to any person or entity (“User,” “they,” or “their”) purchasing or using a CPE Monitor Plus, a NABPLAW, or the NABP Verify subscription plan (“Subscription”). User acknowledges that in the sole discretion of NABP, NABP may revise the terms and conditions of this Policy, at any time or for any reason, with or without notice. If User does not agree with this Policy, or any revisions to this Policy following posting of such revisions on the NABP Website or mobile application, then User agrees to cease using the Subscription immediately. User agrees to periodically review the Policy terms and conditions to be aware of such revisions or additions.
User is responsible for their access and use of the Subscription and agrees to do so in compliance with all applicable federal, state, and local laws.
1. Overview of Subscription Plans and Payments
Subscriber will be charged the applicable fee for the entire Subscription term at the time of the Subscription purchase and each time the Subscription renews. NABP may use a third-party to process User’s payments. Applicable taxes, regulatory surcharges, and assessments, if any, may be charged to the User.
NABP offers a one-year Subscription. The Subscription purchased through the NABP e-Profile is billed in one payment for the Subscription term. The User will be charged the then applicable fee for the entire Subscription at the time of the purchase and each time the Subscription automatically renews.
User must indicate on the CPE Monitor Subscription page if user does not wish for the Subscription to automatically renew. (To disable the auto renew, User should access the “My Subscription” tab, and click the “Manage” button, followed by clicking “Cancel Subscription”.)
NABP offers two Subscription types: individual and organization. Both Subscription types are available only for one-year terms. At the end of the term, the Subscription will terminate. If the User desires to continue receiving NABPLAW services, User will need to renew the Subscription through the NABP e-Profile.
NABP offers a one-year Subscription. The Subscription purchased through the NABP e-Profile is billed in one payment for the Subscription term. A participating state board of pharmacy may require subscriber pay an associated program fee. NABP may collect that state program fee on behalf of the state.
If the participating state board of pharmacy assesses a fee associated with the Subscription, that board of pharmacy fee will be included with the Subscription fee so the User remits one payment for the Subscription term. The User will be charged the then applicable entire Subscription fee and any state assessed fee at the time of the initial Subscription purchase and each date anniversary when the Subscription automatically renews.
User must indicate on the NABP Verify Subscription page if user does not wish for the Subscription to automatically renew. (To disable the auto renew, User must access the “My Subscription” tab, and click the “Manage” button, followed by clicking “Cancel Subscription.”)

3. Refund Policy
User hereby acknowledges and agrees that NABP does not refund any NABP fees or charges related to User’s purchase of any Subscription. This includes any partially used or unused Subscription for which User has already paid. Upon any cancellation of the Subscription, User will not be issued a refund, prorated or otherwise, for any NABP fees User paid when purchasing the Subscription.
If a state or jurisdiction board of pharmacy assessed a fee collected by NABP as a part of the NABP Verify Subscription and the User cancels the Subscription, the state or jurisdiction-assessed fee or a portion of that assessed fee may be refunded as directed by the state.
4. Tax Responsibility
Depending on User’s jurisdiction, the stated Subscription price may be exclusive of all taxes, duties, levies, imposts, fines or similar governmental assessments (collectively, “Taxes”). User is responsible for and bears Taxes associated with its purchase of, payment for, access to, or use of the Subscription. Charges are inclusive of applicable Taxes where required by law. NABP’s and User’s obligations under this section shall survive the termination or expiration of the Subscription.
5. Subscription and Pricing Change Policy
NABP reserves the right to change Subscription plans, adjust pricing, or any components thereof in any manner and at any time as NABP may determine in its sole discretion. If the Subscription fee increases, NABP will notify User. If the Subscription plans, pricing, or any components change during the User’s current Subscription plan, the change will be applied at User’s next Subscription renewal. NABP is not responsible for notifying User of changes to any applicable taxes.
6. Payment Information and Credit Card Billing
By providing payment information to NABP, User agrees that the payment information is valid and (1) in User’s name or (2) in the name of an individual who has authorized User to use their payment information for User’s Subscription purchase. Credit card payments are processed by NABP’s third-party payment processor and NABP will automatically charge User’s credit card for the cost of the Subscription and any applicable taxes. If User purchases a Subscription and NABP is unable to process the User’s transaction or if the User disputes the credit card charge for the Subscription, or otherwise declines to pay for the Subscription, NABP reserves the right to decline to provide the Subscription, CPE Monitor Plus services, NABPLAW services, NABP Verify services or future services, until NABP receives the correct payment. NABP may also notify one or more boards of pharmacy if User failed to pay for any Subscription-related services that NABP provided. User will be responsible for paying all past due amounts.
In addition to entering the credit card payment information, if User received a valid NABP coupon code for payment of their NABP Verify subscription and enters the coupon code on the subscription payment page, the entered credit card will not be charged for that one year subscription. Each NABP coupon code is valid to be used for the payment of the one year subscription for that User.
7. CPE Monitor Promotion and Discount Codes
Any promotion code or offer (including any special discount pricing options) provided by NABP may not be used in conjunction with any other promotion code or offer, past or present. Introductory offers are only available to new users of the Subscription, except where expressly stated otherwise. Previous users of the Subscription do not qualify as new users. No promotion code or discount will apply to corporate or other group subscriptions. Unless otherwise set forth in the terms of any promotion, all pricing promotions or discounts will apply to the initial period of the Subscription, and any renewals fees will be charged in the amount in effect at the time of renewal for the type of Subscription purchased. Even when a promotion, discount or coupon code may be used for the partial or full cost of the Subscription, a credit card is still required to be provided on the subscription payment page but will not be charged the value of the promotion, discount or coupon.
