Learnship Corporation (“Learnship”, “we”, and/or “us”) is a Delaware corporation and the owner and operator of the website located at www.learnship.com (“Website”) and other services related to language instruction, including virtual classrooms where Learnship instructors conduct one-on-one and group language instruction sessions (“Sessions”), software, iOS application applications, content files, virtual classrooms and boards, audio and video, scripts, instruction sets, Session materials, books, surveys, homework, vocabulary lists, books, reports, testing and other learning materials, and any related documentation (collectively, “Services.” For the avoidance of doubt, anything related to the one-on-one or group language Sessions or the Website is included in the Services.).
The Terms are applicable to both (a) corporate users (“Employers”) who set up certain Services for third parties, including company employees and their families (collectively, “Employees”) and (b) to individuals who access the Services. The terms “you”, “your”, and “Users” encompass all users, including both corporate users, individual users and anyone else who accesses the Services.
If you are agreeing to the Terms on behalf of a company or other legal entity, you represent that you have the authority to bind such entity and other affiliated Users including its Employees. In that case, the terms “you,” “your,” and “Users” shall also refer to such entity, its Employees, and its other affiliates. If you do not have such authority or if you do not agree with the Terms, you may not access the Services. You acknowledge that the Terms constitute a contract between you and Learnship, even though they are electronic and not physically signed by you and Learnship, and they govern your use of the Services.
You agree that your access to and use of the Services is subject to the Terms and all applicable laws, and that any such access or use is undertaken at your own risk.
If you have any questions about the Terms or any of our other policies, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
From time to time, we will review the Terms to ensure they accurately reflect developments in the law and our business operations. We reserve the right to update and revise the Terms at any time, effective upon posting. Any new features or tools that are added to the current Services shall also be subject to the Terms. All descriptions of Services and pricing terms are subject to change at any time without notice, at our sole discretion. We reserve the right to discontinue the Services or any part thereof at any time.
By using the Services you understand and agree that Learnship may share information about you and your transaction(s) with other companies for any business purposes, including without limitation, processing your payments or other transaction(s), fraud prevention, and credit card authorization. You also understand and agree that where applicable certain information about you and content you provide may be shared with your Employer and other Users as set forth herein and in the Terms.
By accessing the Services you affirm that you are fully able and competent to enter into and comply with the Terms. We only permit individuals who are at least 18 years old and who can form legally binding contracts with us to use the Services.
You can only use or access the Services to the extent applicable laws in your jurisdiction do not bar you from doing so. Although the Services may be accessible worldwide, this does not mean all Services are available in your country, or that all Services, or content contained therein, are legal in your country. It is your responsibility to make sure your use of the Services is legal where you use them. You agree that you will not use the Services in any country or in any manner prohibited by United States export control laws or any other law, restrictions, or regulations that apply to you.
We reserve the right, but are not obligated, to further limit the access of our Services (or certain features or content thereof) to any person, geographic region, or jurisdiction. We may exercise this right on a case-by-case basis.
By using the Services, you represent and warrant that you meet all eligibility requirements we outline in the Terms. We may also change our eligibility criteria at any time.
Some of our Services, such as participating in Sessions, may require you to create an account and set up a User profile. In order for us to provide you the best possible service, you agree to provide us with complete, accurate, and updated information for your account at all times. Incorrect or outdated information may lead to errors or delays, for which we will not be responsible.
As part of the registration process, you will be required to create a user name and password for your account. You are solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality and security of your user name, password, and other account information and for all activities that occur under your login or account.

We reserve the right to refuse to accept or to cancel any registration, whether or not the registration has been confirmed, for any or no reason, and without liability to you or anyone else. We also reserve the right to limit or prohibit all activity, including orders or registrations that, in our sole judgment, appear to be malicious or unlawful.
From time to time the Services may be unavailable for reasons beyond our control, such as power and telephone outages, internet service disruptions, and other network errors. We expressly disclaim all liability for such interruptions. If participation in a Session is restricted or substantially interrupted due to inaccessibility attributed to Learnship, you will be credited for such Session on a pro-rata basis.
The Services may be temporarily unavailable for scheduled maintenance or for unscheduled emergency maintenance, or due to other causes beyond our control. Learnship shall use reasonable efforts to provide notice of any scheduled material disruption in service.
Some of the Services require that you or your Employer enter into a separate Letter Agreement with us. In the event that the terms of a Letter Agreement entered into by you or your Employer are inconsistent with the Terms of Service, the Letter Agreement shall govern.
We may modify, update, or discontinue the Services (including any of their portions or features) at any time without liability to you or anyone else; however, we will make a reasonable effort to notify you before we make such change. We will also allow you a reasonable time to save Your Content and other data related to the Services. If such a modification results in a material change to the Letter Agreement, you may terminate the Letter Agreement within ten (10) days, and we will provide you with a pro rata refund for any unused Services that you may have prepaid. If you do not notify us of your intention to terminate the Letter Agreement within ten (10) days after we have notified you of such modification, you will be deemed to have accepted those changes. If we discontinue the Services in their entirety, we will provide you with a pro rata refund for any unused fees for those Services that you may have prepaid.
We recommend that you regularly back up any data or content, including Your Content, related to the Services. We may create reasonable technical limits on your use of the Services, such as limits on file size, storage space, processing capacity, and other technical limits.

We do not monitor or control what others do with Your Content. Other Users in your group Session may have access to some of your profile information, including your city and country of residence and any photo or introductory text you may have included in your profile.
If your Employer has set up the Services on your behalf, you also grant your Employer a license to access Your Content through the Services. This license shall survive the termination of your account. Employers are solely responsible for ensuring that all uses of the Services by their Employees comply with applicable federal, state and international laws and for ensuring that their Employees agree to the Terms. All Users who are Employees acknowledge that the Employer who set up the Services for your use has certain rights to access your account, view Your Content, limit your access to the Services, terminate your account, and may obtain information about you related to the Services.
