Terms and Conditions

Student

Welcome to simplingo.com, the website and online service of Simplingo Academy. Explained here, are the terms by which you may use our service. This is an agreement between SIMPLINGO ACADEMY and THE STUDENT for the provision of registering as a learner.

By clicking on the “AGREE” button, you agree to be bound to the Terms and Conditions below.

Any dispute or claim relating in any way to your use of any Simplingo Service, or to any products or services sold or distributed by Simplingo or through simplingo.com will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court.

Changes to Terms of Use

We reserve the right to change, alter, replace or otherwise modify these Terms of Use at any time. The date of last modification is stated at the end of these Terms of Use. In addition, if you register an account and these Terms of Use are subsequently changed in any material respect (for example, for security, legal, or regulatory reasons), we will notify you in advance by sending a message to your account and/or an email to the email address that you have provided to us, and the revised Terms of Use will become effective four (4) weeks after such notification. You will have no obligation to continue using the Simplingo Academy following any such notification, but if you do not terminate your account as described in the Termination section below during such four (4) week period, your continued use of the Simplingo Academy after the end of that four (4) week period will constitute your acceptance of the revised Terms of Use.

Both parties (Simplingo Academy and the Student) agree to the following:

1 – The Two Parties and their Relationship

Simplingo Academy is a school offering an online platform for language courses. The Student may only use our service if he/she is in compliance with these Terms and Conditions.

2 – Creating and Using an Account:

When creating an account, the Student must provide accurate information. The Student is solely responsible for the activity that occurs on his/her account and therefore must keep their password secure. We at Simplingo Academy recommend that to create a strong password, the Student uses a combination of upper and lower-case letters, numbers and symbols. Simplingo Academy cares about the integrity and security of the Student’s personal information, however, we cannot guarantee that unauthorized third parties will never be able to defeat our security measures. The Student must acknowledge that he/she is providing their personal information at their own risk. The Student must notify Simplingo Academy immediately if there has been any breach of security or unauthorized use of their account. Simplingo Academy will not be liable for any losses caused by unauthorized use of the Student’s account. By providing Simplingo Academy with an e-mail address, the Student allows consent to send service-related notices including changes to features of the service and special offers.

If the Student opens a Simplingo Academy account on behalf of a company, organization, or other entity, then this third-party service is bound to this agreement through the Student. The Student is deemed the authorized representative and has therefore agreed to this agreement on the entity’s behalf. By doing so, the Student gives Simplingo Academy permission to access and use information of the above mentioned third-party from that service.

Simplingo Academy reserves the right to modify, change or discontinue all or any of our service with or without notice, and without liability to the Student or any third party. In addition to this, Simplingo Academy also reserves the right, in our sole discretion, to reject, refuse to post or remove any of the Teacher’s content and to restrict, suspend or terminate his/her access at any time, for any reason or no reason, and without liability.

3 – User Content

The Student will have the opportunity to post information and content on the platform. Any content a Student makes available on the platform means Simplingo Academy is granted a perpetual, non-exclusive, fully-paid, royalty-free, irrevocable, sublicensing, worldwide license and right to display, use, reproduce, modify or distribute.

The Student is solely responsible for any content and other material they submit. He/She will not use Simplingo Academy to transmit any content that contains unlawful, harmful, threatening, abusive, harassing, defamatory, vulgar, or racially, ethnically or otherwise objectionable. There will be no stalking or harassing other users. The Student is forbidden to put up any material that contains software viruses or any other computer code, files, or programs designed to interrupt, destroy, or limit the functionality of any computer software. Furthermore, there will be no unauthorized advertising, junk mail, spam, chain letters, pyramid schemes or any forms of solicitation.

By providing content, the Student makes sure that it does not infringe upon or violate the rights of any third party, including without limitation any intellectual property rights, rights of publicity or rights of privacy. The Student is solely responsible for their content and the consequence of posting or publishing it and that Simplingo Academy shall not be liable for any damages that might occur as a result of the Student’s Content.
