General terms and conditions
1. Course Enrollment
When you enroll in our course, you get a license from us to view it via the SKILL-LYNC platform and no other use. You are hereby expressly barred from transferring or reselling courses in any way.
Courses are licensed, and not sold, to you. This license does not give you any 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 torrent sites). SKILL-LYNC grants you as an User, a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable license 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 Services, in accordance with these Terms and any conditions or restrictions associated with a particular course or feature of our 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, sub-license, or otherwise transfer or use any course unless we give you explicit permission to do so in a written agreement signed by a SKILL-LYNC authorized representative.
We reserve our right to revoke any license 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 policies. The lifetime access is not applicable to add-on features and services associated with a course, for example, translation captions of courses may be disabled by instructors at any time, and an instructor may decide at any time to no longer provide teaching assistance or Q&A services in association with a course. To be clear, the lifetime access is to the course content but not to the instructor.
Instructors may not grant licenses to their courses to users directly and any such direct license shall be null and void and a violation of these Terms.
You need an account to purchase and enroll in a course or to submit a course for publication on our platform and you shall be solely responsible for all activity associated with your account either done by someone using your account without your permission. If you suspect someone else is using your account, it is your duty to inform us by contacting our Support Team. We may request some information from you to confirm that you are indeed the owner of your account.
When setting up and maintaining your account, you agree and acknowledge to provide and continue to provide accurate and complete information, including a valid email address. You shall not transfer or assign your account to someone else or use someone else’s account without their permission. If you contact us to request access to an account, we will not grant you such access unless you can provide us the login credential information for that account. In the event of the death of a user, the account of that user will be closed.
Course pricing is listed on the website webpage for each course and is subject to changes without notice. The prices of courses on SKILL-LYNC are determined based on the terms of the Instructor Agreement and our Pricing and Promotional Policy. 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 User 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. 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 thirty (30) days of notification from us. We reserve the right to disable access to any course for which we have not received adequate payments.
4. Refund Policy

We can ban your account for repeated or major offenses.
If you are an instructor, you can submit courses for publication on the platform and you can also communicate with the users who have enrolled in your courses. In both cases, you must abide by the law and respect the rights of others: you cannot post any course, question, answer, review, or other content that violates applicable local or national laws or regulations of your country. You are solely responsible for any courses, content, and actions you post or take via the platform and Services and their consequences.

We may terminate or suspend your permission to use our platform and Services or ban your account at any time, with or without notice, for any violation of these Terms, if you fail to pay any fees when due, for extended periods of inactivity, for unexpected technical issues or problems, or if we suspect that you engage in fraudulent or illegal activities. Upon any such termination, we may delete your account and content, and we may prevent you from further access to the platforms and use of our Services. Your content may still be available on the platforms even if your account is terminated or suspended. You agree that we will have no liability to you or any third party for termination of your account, removal of your content, or blocking of your access to our platforms and services.

If the student misses to make payments then access to the support system will be cut off.

The license for these courses will be available only for the duration of the course and must be used only for learning the course for which the license was provided.
