2. Course Enrolment and Access

When you enrol on a course, you have the right to view the course on IAU eAcademy and you cannot use the course for any other purpose. This means you cannot transfer or resell IAU eAcademy courses in any way you do not have the right to.

When IAU eAcademy Instructors publish agreed by IAU eAcademy or, Organisations, give IAU eacademy the right to publish on our platform and Services they grant IAU eAcademy a license to offer the courses to students.  This means that we have the right to sub-license the course to the students who enrol on the course. As a student, when you enrol on a course, whether it is a free or paid course, you have the right to view the course via the IAU eAcademy platform and Services, and IAU eAcademy are the licensor of the Courses, and the courses are not sold to you.  You do not have the right to resell the course in any manner (including by sharing account information with a purchaser or illegally downloading the course and sharing it on other sites).

IAU eAcademy, grants you (as a student) a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable right to access and view the courses and associated content for which you have paid all required fees, solely for your personal, non-commercial, educational purposes through the IAU eAcademy Platform Services, in accordance with these Terms and any conditions or restrictions associated with a particular courses or feature of IAU eAcademy Services. All other uses are expressly prohibited. You may not reproduce, redistribute, transmit, assign, sell, broadcast, rent, share, lend, modify, adapt, edit, create derivative works of, sublicense, or otherwise transfer or use any course unless we give you explicit permission to do so in a written agreement signed by IAU eAcademy or IAU eAcademy authorized representative.  This also applies to content you can access via any of our platform Services.

We generally give a twelve months access to view the course(s) to our students when they enrol on a course.  However, we reserve the right to revoke any right to access and use courses at any point in time in the event where we decide or are obligated to disable access to a course due to legal or policy reasons, for example, if the course you enrolled in is the object of a copyright complaint, or if we determine its content violates our terms and conditions.  The twelve month’s access is not applicable to add-on features and services associated with a course.  For example, translation course or any other relevant information of courses may be disabled by IAU eAcademy at any time.  To clarify, the twelve month’s access is for the course content but not to the instructor.

Instructors may not grant rights of IAU eAcademy courses to students directly, and any such direct right shall be null and void and a violation of these Terms and Conditions.

Note that if you redeem your voucher during the Cancellation Period, you expressly request us to begin providing the course materials and you acknowledge that you lose your right to cancel the purchase of the course and get any refund for it.

You agree to pay the fees for courses that you purchase, and you authorize us to charge your debit or credit card or process other means of payment (such as Paypal, Stripe, Visa, direct debit, or mobile wallet) for those fees. IAU eAcademy works with third party payment processing partners to offer you the most convenient payment methods in your country and to keep your payment information secure.

When you make a purchase, you agree not to use an invalid or unauthorized payment method.  If your payment method fails and you still get access to the course you are enrolling in, you agree to pay us the corresponding fees within fourteen (14) days of notification from us. We reserve the right to disable access to any course for which we have not received adequate payment.

3.1 Payments, Credits and Refunds

If the course you purchased is not what you were expecting, you can request, within 14 days of your purchase of the course, that IAU eAcademy apply a refund to your account. We reserve the right to apply your refund as a refund credit or a refund to your original payment method, at our discretion, depending on capabilities of our payment processing partners, the platform from which you purchased your course (website, mobile or TV app), and other factors. No refund is due to you if you request it after the 14-day guarantee time limit has passed.  However, if a course you previously purchased is disabled for legal or policy reasons, you are entitled to a refund beyond this 14-day limit. IAU eAcademy also reserves the right to refund students beyond the 14-day limit in cases of suspected or confirmed account fraud.

To request a refund email at admin@iau-eacademy.com.  As detailed in the Instructor Terms, instructors agree that students have the right to receive these refunds.

If we decide to issue refund credits to your account, they will be automatically applied towards your next course purchase on our website, but can’t be used for purchases in our mobile or TV applications. Refund credits may expire if not used within the specified period, and have no cash value, in each case unless otherwise required by applicable law.

At our discretion, if we believe you are abusing our refund policy, such as if you’ve consumed a significant portion of a course that you want to refund or if you’ve previously refunded a course, we reserve the right to deny your refund, ban your account, and/or restrict all future use of the Services. If we ban your account or disable your access to a course due to your violation of these Terms you will not be eligible to receive a refund.

3.2 Gift and Promotional Codes

IAU eAcademy or our partners may offer gift and promotional codes to students.  Certain codes may be redeemed for gift or promotional credits applied to your IAU eAcademy account, which then may be used to purchase eligible courses on our platform, subject to the terms included with your codes. Other codes may be directly redeemable for specific courses. Gift and promotional credits cannot be used for purchases in our mobile or TV applications.

These codes and credits, as well as any promotional value linked to them, may expire if not used within the period specified in your IAU eAcademy account. Gift and promotional codes offered by IAU eAcademy may not be refunded for cash, unless otherwise specified in the terms included with your codes or as required by applicable law. Gift and promotional codes offered by a partner are subject to that partner’s refund policies. If you have multiple saved credit amounts, IAU eAcademy may determine which of your credits to apply to your purchase. For more details you can email us admin@iau-eacademy.com to check out any information on terms included with your codes.

3.4 Pricing

The prices of courses on IAU eAcademy are determined based on the terms of IAU eAcademy or the Instructor’s Terms or agreed promotions.  For example, in some instances, the price of a course offered on the IAU eAcademy website may not be exactly the same as the price offered on our mobile or other applications of IAU eAcademy, due to mobile platform providers’ pricing systems and their policies around implementing sales and promotions.

We may run promotions and sales for our courses and certain courses are only available at discounted prices for a set period of time.  The price applicable to a course will be the price at the time you complete your purchase of the course at checkout.  Any price offered for a particular course may also be different when you are logged into your account from the price available to users who are not registered or logged in, because some of our promotions are available only to new users.

If you are logged into your account, the listed currency you see is based on your location when you created your account.  If you are not logged into your account, the price currency is based on the country where you are located.  We do not enable users to see pricing in other currencies.

If you are a student located in a country where use and sales tax, goods and services tax, or value-added tax is applicable to consumer sales, we are responsible for collecting and remitting that tax to the proper tax authorities.  Depending on your location, the price you see may include such taxes, or tax may be added at checkout.

9.1 Small Claims

Either of us can bring a claim in small claims court in (a) UK, (b) the county where you live, or (c) another place we both agree on, as long as it qualifies to be brought in that UK court.

9.3 The Arbitration Process

Any disputes that involve a claim of less than £10,000 GDP must be resolved exclusively through binding non-appearance-based arbitration.  A party electing arbitration must initiate proceedings by filing an arbitration demand with the UK Arbitration.

Disputes that involve a claim of more than £10,000 GDP must be resolved per the UK’s arbitration rules about whether the arbitration hearing has to be in-person.

9.4 Non-Class Actions

We both agree that we can each only bring claims against the other on an individual basis. This means: (a) neither of us can bring a claim as a plaintiff or non-class member in a non-class action, consolidated action, or representative action; (b) an arbitrator cannot combine multiple people’s claims into a single case (or preside over any consolidated, class, or representative action); and (c) an arbitrator’s decision or award in one person’s case can only impact that user, not other users, and can’t be used to decide other users’ disputes. If a court decides that this “Non- class actions” clause isn’t enforceable or valid, then this “Dispute Resolution” section will be null and void, but the rest of the Terms will still apply.
