Abusing LearnApe

LearnApe and our users work together to keep our sites and services working properly and safely. Please report problems, offensive content, and policy violations to us. Without limiting other remedies, we may limit, suspend or terminate our service and user accounts, prohibit access to our sites and their content, services and tools, delay or remove hosted content, and take technical and legal steps to keep users off the sites if we think that they are creating problems or possible legal liabilities, infringing the intellectual property rights of third parties, or acting inconsistently with the letter or spirit of our policies (for example, and without limitation, conducting off-LearnApe transactions, feedback manipulation, circumventing temporary or permanent suspensions or users who we believe are harassing our employees or other users). Additionally, we may, in appropriate circumstances and at our discretion, suspend or terminate accounts of users who may be repeat infringers of intellectual property rights of third parties. We also reserve the right to cancel unconfirmed accounts or accounts that have been inactive for a long time, or to modify or discontinue LearnApe sites, services or tools.

 

Student Protection

Students and course providers share the responsibility for making sure purchases facilitated by LearnApe are exciting, rewarding and hassle-free. We strongly encourage students to work with course providers before opening a claim relating to a purchase.We require LearnApe course providers to comply with our resolution process. Students and educators permit us to make a final decision, in our sole discretion, on any claim that a student files with LearnApe under the LearnApe Student Protection Policy. If we resolve a dispute in the student’s favor, we will refund the student for the full cost of the class (including any applicable sales taxes), and we will require the course providers to reimburse us for the amount due to the student. Without limiting the foregoing, course providers may not have to pay a reimbursement for a LearnApe claim if they provide sufficient documentation (for example, proof that the class was as described). Course providers agree to allow us to debit their monthly account balance for amounts due to students. If course providers do not provide LearnApe with a valid reimbursement method, we may collect amounts owed using other collection mechanisms, including retaining collection agencies. We may also suspend or restrict course providers from selling on our sites until payment is made.

* Correcting Mistakes in Payments to Students or Course providers. We reserve the right to fix any processing errors we discover. We will correct any

processing errors by debiting or crediting the payment method used for the erroneous student or educator refunds or reimbursements.
