Please read these Terms carefully before using Preptical. Your access to and use of lessons and courses on Preptical Academy is conditional on your acceptance of and compliance with these Terms. By creating an account on Preptical, accessing or using the Preptical platform, you agree to be bound by these Terms.
You need an account for most activities on our platform, including subscribing and accessing content or submitting content for publication. When setting up and maintaining your account, you must provide and continue to provide accurate and complete information, including a valid email address. You have complete responsibility for your account and everything that happens on your account, including for any harm or damage (to us or anyone else) caused by someone using your account without your permission. This means you need to be careful with your password. You may not transfer your account to someone else or use someone else’s account. If you contact us to request access to an account, we will not grant you such access unless you can provide us with the information that we need to prove you are the owner of that account.
You may not share your account login credentials with anyone else. You are responsible for what happens with your account, and Preptical will not intervene in disputes between Users or Tutors who have shared account login credentials. You must notify us immediately upon learning that someone else may be using your account without your permission (or if you suspect any other breach of security) by contacting our Support Team. We may request some information from you to confirm that you are indeed the owner of your account.
Users and Tutors must be at least 18 years of age to create an account on Preptical and use the platform. If we discover that you have created an account that violates these rules, we will terminate your account. Under our Tutor Terms, you may be requested to verify your identity before you are authorized to submit content for publication on Preptical.
You can terminate your account at any time by contacting the support team.
Content on Preptical Academy
Under our Tutor Terms, when Tutors publish content on Preptical, they grant Preptical a license to offer users a license to the content. This means that we have the right to sublicense the content to enrolled Users. As a User, when you subscribe to Preptical Academy, you are getting a license from Preptical to view the content via the Preptical platform, and Preptical is the licensor of record. Content is licensed and not sold to you. This license does not give you any right to resell the content in any manner (including by sharing account information with a purchaser or illegally downloading the content and sharing it on torrent sites).
Preptical grants you (as User) a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable license to access and view the content for which you have paid all required fees, solely for your personal, non-commercial, educational purposes through the platform, in accordance with these Terms and any conditions or restrictions associated with the particular content or feature of our platform. 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 content unless we give you explicit permission to do so in a written agreement signed by a Preptical authorized representative.
Payments, refunds and coupons
During your subscription to a Subscription Plan, you (as a User) get a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable license from us to access and view the content included in that Subscription Plan via the platform.
The subscription that you purchase or renew determines the scope, features, and price of your access to a Subscription Plan. You may not transfer, assign, or share your subscription with anyone else.
We reserve the right to revoke any license to use the content in our Subscription Plans for legal or policy reasons at any time and at our sole discretion.
You agree to pay Preptical’s subscription fees, and you authorize us to charge your debit or credit card or process other means of payment for those fees. Preptical works with payment service providers to offer you the most convenient payment methods in your country and to keep your payment information secure. We may update your payment methods using the information provided by our payment service providers.
You agree not to use an invalid or unauthorized payment method when you make a purchase. If your payment method fails and you still get access to the content 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 content for which we have not received adequate payment.
The subscription fee will be listed at the time of your purchase. We may also be required to add taxes to your subscription fee. Your subscription will automatically renew according to your subscription settings (e.g., monthly or annually) unless you cancel your subscription prior to the end of the current period.
You may cancel your subscription by navigating to the “My subscriptions” tab on the menu, selecting your active subscription and clicking on the Cancel button. If you cancel your subscription to a Subscription Plan, your access to that Subscription Plan will automatically end on the last day of your billing period. On cancellation, you will not be entitled to receive a refund or credit of any fees already paid for your subscription unless otherwise required by applicable law. For clarity, cancellation of a subscription does not terminate your Preptical account. Payments in Preptical Academy are non-refundable, and there are no refunds or credits for partially used periods unless otherwise required by applicable law. Depending on where you are located, you may qualify for a refund. Contact us for additional information.
To subscribe to a Subscription Plan, you must provide a payment method. By subscribing to a Subscription Plan and providing your billing information during checkout, you grant our payment service providers and us the right to process payment for the then-applicable fees via the payment method we have on record for you. At the end of each subscription term, we will automatically renew your subscription for the same length of term and process your payment method for the payment of the then-applicable fees.
In the event that we update your payment method using the information provided by our payment service providers, you authorize us to continue to charge the then-applicable fees to your updated payment method.
If we are unable to process payment through the payment method, we have on file for you, or if you file a chargeback disputing charges made to your payment method and the chargeback is granted, we may suspend or terminate your subscription.
We reserve the right to change our Subscription Plans or adjust pricing for our platform at our sole discretion. Any price changes or changes to your subscription will take effect following notice to you, except as otherwise required by applicable law.
Preptical or our partners may offer gift and promotional codes to Users. Certain codes may be redeemed for discounts applied to subscriptions. Other codes may be directly redeemable for specific content. These codes and credits and any promotional value linked to them may expire if not used within their validity period.
You may not access or use Preptical or create an account for unlawful purposes. Your use of Preptical and behaviour on our platform must comply with your country’s applicable local or national laws or regulations. You are solely responsible for knowing and complying with such laws and regulations that are applicable to you.
If you are a User, the platform enables you to contact Tutors of the content on Preptical and post content reviews.
If you are a Tutor, you can submit content for publication on the platform. In this case, you must abide by the law and respect the rights of others: you cannot post any content, 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 their consequences. Ensure you understand all the copyright restrictions set forth in the Tutor Terms before submitting any content for publication on Preptical.
If we are put on notice that your course or content violates the law or the rights of others (for example, if it is established that it violates the intellectual property or image rights of others or is about an illegal activity) or if we believe your content or behaviour is unlawful, inappropriate, or objectionable (for example if you impersonate someone else), we may remove your content from our platform. Preptical complies with copyright laws.
Preptical has discretion in enforcing these Terms. We may restrict or terminate your permission to use our platform or ban your account at any time, with or without notice, for any or no reason, including for any violation of these Terms, if you fail to pay any fees when due, for fraudulent chargeback requests, upon the request of law enforcement or government agencies, for extended periods of inactivity, for unexpected technical issues or problems, if we suspect that you engage in fraudulent or illegal activities, or for any other reason in our sole discretion. Upon any such termination, we may delete your account and content and prevent you from further access to our platform. Even if your account is terminated or suspended, your content may still be available on the platforms. 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 platform.
Please let us know if a User has published content that infringes your copyright or trademark rights. Our Tutor Terms require our Tutors to follow the law and respect the intellectual property rights of others.
