What happens to my Logos account when I die?

The question is related to the fact that all my Logos resources (over 20 years of heavy investment) are tied to a personal online account under my name, tied to my credit card, and for my personal use.
It would be a terrible waste (and IMHO a crime too) if after I die, all my investment is lost!

With physical books, it is easy for someone to inherit and benefit from them - similarly with ebooks.

Can Logos help explain how I can go about legally (and with no hassle from Logos) to ensure that someone else benefits from my logos investment when my time is up?

Many thanks

You are able to will your FL account to someone... or even a church, but if you did to a church it would be something like  head pastor use only since you do not get to share accounts among multiple people... households being a grey area considered acceptable (your suppose and minor children living with you).

I am from New Zealand so a phone call may be difficult

Thanks for your response.

Just for further clarification and for wider context...
No one uses my account as ethics would require. Though I have tried to get my wife to use it for her Sunday school class preparation by setting up a special layout for her under her name so she can access the basic resources she needs and not feel overwhelmed. Logos and tech stuff not her cup of tea.

My will is simple and basically, when I die, everything goes to my wife, If we die, then our children. But should my children not want my Logos account, I would like a way to ensure that they can legally give it to someone they see fit.
More than 3/4 of my books over the last 10 years have been donated to churches, other pastors, seminaries etc.
I am still young btw - only 54 and I hope to actively serve in ministry for a couple more decades but I deal with death so often I thought it wise to plan ahead :-)

Probably be a good idea to leave the account to someone who doesn't have logos. If my dad left his account to me, it wouldn't do me all that much good as I have most of the books he has. Better to leave it to one of the grand kids.

Last year I modified my will to leave it to my son.  And if he dont want or use it, my daughter.

My will directs my children to give my Logos account to the church I attend at the time and for the church to give it to someone of their choice.

My eldest grandson will attend DTS this fall, and he gets my full Logos library in case of my departure from this planet.

Probably the youngest guy here. But this is something I've been thinking about these last few years as pastor. have had two deaths this year already, and am facing a third in the short term.

I told my parents if something happens:
Donate my organs.

Sell or donate my stuff that you don't want. Use the money as you see fit.

Give Logos to our church to be owned by the church, and used by whomever is pastor only. If the church should fail, then donate it to the local bible college to be awarded to and used by a student across his four years at the discretion of the scholarship committee.

My paper books should be donated to the bible college library as well.

Good point. I did not think of checking this with the person who would get the library if my entire family died.
