COMPANY SERVICES GENERALLY
Company engages tutors, instructors and consultants to provide the Company Services to users via the Website or third-party communication platform or in-person. You are solely responsible for all computer hardware and other equipment and all fees for services (such as internet service, wireless services and third-party platforms) required for access and use of the Company Services. It is your responsibility to promptly notify us of any problem or issues that arise relating to our tutors, instructors and consultants, and we will attempt to work out such problems and issues.
A student or parent/guardian will schedule sessions through our Website, by calling us, or using any other means made available by Company. Availability of a specific tutor, instructors and consultants for desired dates and times or for any date and time cannot be guaranteed. Students and parents/guardians are encouraged to book sessions well in advance to improve the chances of availability of tutors, instructors and consultants and time slots as per their choice. A session can be cancelled or rescheduled any time up to 24 hours before session start time. Within 24 hours of sessions, you are liable for payment of session and it’s at our discretion regarding rescheduling. The student may also book a session with less than 24 hours notice, in which case rescheduling or cancellation of such sessions is at our discretion and you are liable for payment of the session. If a student does not show up for a scheduled session without prior intimation, he/she will be considered as a “no show.” The student is expected to join a scheduled session on or before the scheduled time. The tutors, instructors and consultants may wait for 5-10 minutes beyond the scheduled session start time. In case the student does not show up, the tutor, instructors and consultants will leave the session, the session will be forfeited and you would be liable to pay for the session.
For any technical or operational reason, if Company or a tutor, instructors and consultants needs to cancel or reschedule a scheduled session, Company, tutor, instructors and consultants shall inform the student via text, email or phone, , and propose alternate schedules or tutors, instructors and consultants as necessary.
You are not permitted to contact our tutors, instructors or consultants directly for tutoring engagement arrangements. Rather all engagement arrangements for sessions with tutors, instructors and consultants must be scheduled through the use of the Company Services. Violation of this prohibition will constitute a material breach of this Agreement and Company may exercise all rights at equity or law to enforce this prohibition.
Company bills you through online billing or another agreed upon method of payment for purchases of services. You agree to pay Company all charges at the prices then in effect for the services you or other persons using you may purchase, and you authorize Company to charge your chosen payment provider for any such purchases. You agree to make payment using that selected payment method. If you have ordered a service that is subject to recurring charges then you consent to our charging your payment method on a recurring basis, without requiring your prior approval from you for each recurring charge until such time as you cancel the applicable service. Company reserves the right to correct any errors or mistakes in pricing that it makes even if it has already requested or received payment. Company may change prices at any time. All payments shall be in U.S. dollars. Charges that are not disputed within 15 days of the date charged are conclusively deemed accurate.
Company may offer services on a free trial basis. A free trial offer may or may not require providing a payment method. If you are required to provide a payment method, then any payment due for services following the free offer period will, after opportunity to cancel is provided, automatically begin after the trial period.
Fees are exclusive of taxes and you will pay or reimburse Company for all taxes arising out of this Agreement, whether assessed at the time of your purchase or are thereafter determined to have been due. “Taxes” means any sales, use and other taxes (other than taxes on Company’s income), export and import fees, customs duties and similar charges applicable to the transactions contemplated by this Agreement that are imposed by any government or other authority. You agree to promptly provide Company with legally sufficient tax exemption certificates for each taxing jurisdiction for which you claim exemption.
Your account may be considered delinquent if you or your payment method fails to pay the amount billed to it and that amount remains unpaid at the beginning of the next accounting cycle. Your account may be suspended, archived or purged from the Website if your account is delinquent for more than 30 days. Company may choose to bill through an invoice. Full payment for invoices issued in any given month is expected to be received by Company within 30 days after the mailing date of the invoice, or the Company Service may be terminated.
Unpaid amounts are subject to interest of 1% per month on any outstanding balance or the maximum permitted by law, plus you will be responsible for all expenses of collection, including attorneys’ fees.
