Section 1 Course Information and Valid Term
Basic Course Information: the information of the Course is subject to the order information available in Party A’s account on Party B’s website. Each Course is offered by Party B in different packages, and each package contains a certain number of sessions or classes (each a “Session”) and a certain number of free Sessions (if any).
Valid Term Of a Course: A Course will remain accessible in Party A’s account for a period of 365 days (including the 365th day), from the day following the date of purchase of the Course (hereinafter referred to as the “Valid Term”). If Party A purchases a new Course during the Valid Term of any Course(s) in its account, the Valid Term of all Courses in Party A’s account will be automatically extended to the Valid Term of the newly purchased Course.
Section 2 The Execution and Enforcement of this Agreement
When Party A registers an account on Party B’s website, Party A shall submit accurate and complete information including the name and other related materials. Party A shall be responsible for and shall indemnify Party B from any losses or damages resulting from the inaccurate, misleading or ambiguous information provided by Party A.
To purchase a Course from Party B, Party A shall (i) be at least 18 years old; (ii) have read, understood and accepted the terms and conditions herein and Party B’s Policies; and (iii) agrees to read and accept any updates, amendments, or supplements to Party B’s Policies, which may be posted from time to time on Party B’s website. By purchasing any Course on Party B’s website, Party A shall be deemed to have acknowledged and fully understood all the terms and conditions herein and shall have agreed to be bound by this Agreement. If Party A elects to access or use the Services that involve payment of a fee, then he or she agrees to pay, and will be responsible for payment of, that fee and all taxes associated with such access or use. If Party A provides credit card information to pay for such fees then he or she hereby represents and warrants that he or she is authorized to supply such information and hereby authorize Party B to charge his or her credit card on a regular basis to pay the fees as they are due.
A “Student” or “Party A’s Student” means the student(s) who takes the Course purchased by Party A on Party B’s website. Party A, as a parent or a legal guardian, could open several student accounts after registration. Each Student account can only be created for and used by one student. All Student accounts under Party A’s account share the available Sessions for the Course(s) in Party A’s account. Before a Course is started, [Party B/the Instructor (to be defined below)] will assess the Student’s academic level and designate appropriate course materials accordingly. In order to achieve an optimal learning result, the Student in a Student account shall not be replaced and no other student(s) can be added to the Student account during the Valid Term of the Course. Party A may not transfer his or her account or any Student account to any other person or use anyone else’s account at any time. In cases where Party A has authorized or registered another individual, including a minor, in a student account, Party A is fully responsible for (i) the online conduct of such Student; (ii) controlling that Student’s access to and use of the Services; and (iii) the consequences of any misuse.
Section 3 Course Service
Party B connects the Student with company instructors (the “Instructor”) who will provide live 1-on-3 instruction, tutoring, and learning services via the Services. Each Session of a Course generally takes 25 minutes unless otherwise provided by Party B.
Party B/The Instructor will determine the beginning level for each Student according to an assessment of the Student’s academic background. The Student and his/her parent or legal guardian agree that the Student will start the Course from the beginning level as determined by Party B/the Instructor.
If the Student cannot attend a Session on the scheduled time as confirmed and listed in the Student account, Party A will receive a recording of the missed Session for study.
If a Student fails to attend a Session on the scheduled starting time but attends the Session during the scheduled time period, this Session shall be concluded upon the scheduled ending time, and, neither the Student nor Party A can request that the ending time of the Session be postponed or prolonged. This Session will be deemed as completed and will be deducted from the number of remaining Sessions in Party A’s account.
If, as a result of Party A’s system outages occurred after a scheduled Session has started, Party A is unable to complete the Session, this Session will be deemed as completed and will be deducted from the number of remaining Sessions in Party A’s account.
If Party A cannot complete a scheduled Session due to Party B’s or the Instructor’s reasons, which include but are not limited to, (i) the Instructor is late for over 5 minutes, (ii) the Instructor cancels the Session or stops teaching prior to the scheduled ending time for any reason; or (iii) Party B’s website or Services experiences system outrages, Party A may reschedule such Session, and such Session will not be deducted from the number of remaining Sessions in Party A’s account. Other than the right to reschedule the same Session as provided herein, Party A agrees that neither Party B or any Instructor shall have responsibility and is not liable for: (a) the unavailability of the Session during the scheduled time period; (b) any loss of materials, data, transactions or any other information or materials caused by such system outages; (c) the resultant delay, mis-delivery, or non-delivery of data, transactions or any other information or materials caused by such system outages; or (d) any outages caused by any third parties, including without limitation, any companies or servers hosting the Session, any Internet service providers, any third party platforms, or any internet facilities and networks.
Section 4 Payment and Refund
For any of our course packages, if after your child’s first six sessions on our Site, you are not satisfied, we will issue a refund for all unused sessions minus any merchant fees. Refunds will be issued to the credit card account you used to purchase the course package. Refunds will be issued within  days of your request for a refund.
If Party A requests a refund for a purchased multi-tier Course and the Student(s) in Party A’s account have attended six Session for such Course prior to the request, Party A is entitled to a refund of the payment for the remaining Courses minus the current Course, as shown in the formula below. Party A will be responsible for any bank transaction fees incurred in connection with the refund.
Amount of refund = the amount paid for the multi-tier Course – the number of attending and/or completed Course(s) (at non-discounted price) – any associated merchant fees
Party A shall submit the refund request to Party B at [email protected] The refund payment will be arranged within 2 to 3 weeks from the approval date of the refund request. The refund will be made to the same account and in the same manner from which the payment was made. The time period of the refund transfer may vary depending on the different manner of transfer. Party B could not guarantee the time of successful transfer of the refund.
No refund or replacement sessions will be given for missed sessions due to Student unavailability. However, Students will be given recordings of the missed classes to study from. If a missed session occurs due to any fault of Party B, Party B will issue replacement classes free of charge.
Please note that if Party B believes that Party A is abusing the refund policy in its sole discretion, Party B may suspend or terminate Party A’s account and refuse or restrict any and all current or future use of the Services, without any liability to Party A.
