Terms of Service

Last Updated Date: January 1, 2022

Effective Date: January 1, 2022

 

1. ACCEPTANCE OF TERMS OF SERVICE

We (hereafter referred to as "Provider", "we", "us" or "our") deliver premium business learning content, optimized for mobile devices. These services are available as a browser-based application (“Services”).

By visiting the website ("Sites") and/or registering for the Services, you accept that you are entering into a binding contract with us governed by the Terms of Service, Additional Terms if applicable, and Privacy Policy.

 

Please take the time to read and understand the Terms of Service. If you do not agree with the Terms of Service, Additional Terms as well as the Privacy Policy, please don’t use the Sites or any of the Services.

 

The Terms of Service, Additional Terms and Privacy Policy may be updated without prior written notice to you at any time. These changes will form part of the Terms of Service, even if you do not re-use the Sites. You are responsible for being familiar with any amendments or modifications of the Terms of Service, Additional Terms and Privacy Policy.

 


2. ACCESS AND AVAILABILITY

Full access to the Service can be provided by a fee-based subscription which can be purchased for different periods and will be automatically renewed if not cancelled. We grant our subscribers full access to the content as long as they have an active subscription.

 

The fees shall become due upon purchase of the subscription irrespective of whether you actually use the Service; the consideration for the fees shall solely be the provision of the right to download, receive and/or access the content. 

 

You are fully responsible for all activities that occur through your subscription. That responsibility includes, but is not limited to, the responsibility that you ensure timely payment of any fees, tariffs, or other charges for getting access to the Services or any products and services made available through the Services. You agree to notify us immediately in case you become aware of or suspect unauthorized use of your subscription or any other breach of security.

 

To make the most out of our Service you must have the necessary mobile communication means with easy internet access. Some wireless applications are only available for a select number of mobile devices. This is an issue with its manufacturers, hence out of the control of the Provider. To prevent any disappointment, we ask you to check the compatibility of your device before subscribing to the Service.

 

You are responsible for ensuring that your equipment and/or software do not disturb or interfere with the Provider’s operations. Any equipment or software causing interference shall be immediately disconnected from the Service and the Provider shall have the right to immediately terminate or suspend the Service.

 

3. AGE RESTRICTION

In order to use the Service you (a) must at least have reached the age as per the rules and regulations of your country of residence and have bill payer's permission to sign-up for and use the Service on his behalf and (b) agree on behalf of the bill payer and yourself to be bound by the Terms of Service, Additional Terms and Privacy Policy.

 

4. FEES 

For getting full access to a Service you will be charged the applicable fees.

 

The charges will be invoiced through the mobile bill you receive from the mobile operator of your network or through any other selected payment method. Separate text message fees and/or network fees from your mobile operator or payment processor can apply.

 

In the free welcome message or email you will find information about the Service fee and the frequency of the Service. We ask you to check and store this welcome message or email.

 

All fees, including fees for existing subscription contracts, are subject to change upon notice from us. We will provide you with reasonable notice of such a change. If you do not accept the new fees (which will be applicable only on a prospective basis), you may cancel your subscription effective immediately upon termination.

 

5. SECURITY AND REGISTRATION OBLIGATION 

To guarantee safe use of the Service, as well as payment of the applicable fees, you must be registered. You guarantee that the personal information ("Registered Information") provided to us is correct and complete at all times. If the Provider, in its sole discretion, has reason to believe that the Registered Information is not accurate or complete, the Provider is entitled to suspend or terminate your account and to withhold both current and future use of the Service, or any component of it.

 

You are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of any passwords and/or accounts issued to you by the Provider, and you are fully liable for all actions carried out involving the use of your password or account. You should contact the Provider if you notice or suspect that unauthorized use has been made of your password or account, or any other breach of security.

 

The Provider may provide you with access to some Services without being registered, such as sign-up via your mobile device for the Service. In each such case your identification is based on means of identification that we deem appropriate, such as your mobile telephone number.


6. CHANGES OF THE SERVICES

When your country of residence is part of the European Union and you have purchased a subscription, you have the right to withdrawal from a subscription within 14 days without giving any reason. The withdrawal period will expire after 14 days from the day of purchase of subscription. To exercise the right of withdrawal you must inform us of your decision to withdraw from the purchase by an unequivocal statement. You may use the enclosed European model withdrawal form, but this is not obligatory. To meet the withdrawal deadline, it is sufficient for you to send your communication concerning your exercise of the right of withdrawal before the withdrawal period has expired. If you withdraw from the purchase, we shall reimburse to you all payments received from you, without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days from the day on which we are informed about your decision to withdrawal from the purchase. You will not incur any fees as a result of such reimbursement. If you use the Service during the withdrawal period, you shall pay us an amount which is in proportion to what has been provided until you have communicated to us your withdrawal from the subscription, in comparison with the full coverage of the subscription. The right of withdrawal does not apply for renewal of subscription.

The inclusion of any advertising or promotion on our Sites or in our Services does not constitute any endorsement by the Provider of such content, product, service, or company. The Provider shall not be a party to, or in any way responsible for, any transaction concerning products or services made available from such third parties or for any content or information presented in connection with any products or services of third parties.

National laws from your country of residence are applicable to the relationship between you and Provider, regardless of provisions of applicable international law. You and Provider hereby waive any right to jury trial with respect to any action brought in connection with the Terms of Service and/or Additional Terms. The application of the United Nations Convention of Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is expressly excluded.

 

Disputes will be submitted to final and binding arbitration under the rules of the arbitration association in your country.
