The CIB Service allows students to find courses that they are interested in taking. We reserve the right to refuse to provide the Service to any person for any reason and/or to discontinue the Service in whole or in part at any time, with or without prior notice.
You are responsible for making all arrangements necessary for you to have access to the Service. We reserve the right to withdraw or amend the Service, and or material that we provide on the Service, in our sole discretion and without notice to you. We will not be liable if, for any reason, all or any part of the Service is unavailable at any time or for any period.
CIB will not tolerate violations of intellectual property rights on the Service. If you are a copyright owner and believe that any User Submission or other content infringes upon your copyrights, you may submit a notification pursuant to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act ("DMCA"). To provide Skillshare notice of an infringement, you must provide a written communication to the attention of "DMCA Infringement Notification Dept." care of email@example.com that sets forth the information specified by the DMCA (see http://www.copyright.gov/title17/92chap5.html#512 ). You may be liable for damages (including costs and attorneys' fees) if you materially misrepresent that an activity is infringing your copyright.
The following terms apply to your use of the Service and any account that you may open or attempt to open via the Service:
These Conduct on Service apply to all User Submissions and use of Interactive Services, if offered. User Submissions must in their entirety comply with all applicable local and international laws and regulations. Without limiting the foregoing, you agree that you will not upload, share, post, or otherwise distribute or facilitate distribution of any User Submission — including text, communications, software, images, sounds, data, or other information — that:
You may not use your account to breach security of another account or attempt to gain unauthorized access to another network or server. Not all parts of the Service may be available to you or other authorized users of the Service. You shall not interfere with anyone else’s use and enjoyment of the Service. Users who violate systems or network security may incur criminal or civil liability.
You agree that we may at any time, and at our sole discretion, terminate your membership, account, or other affiliation with the Service without prior notice to you for violating any of the above provisions. In addition, you acknowledge that we will cooperate fully with investigations of violations of systems or network security at other sites, including cooperating with law enforcement authorities in investigating suspected criminal violations.
We have the right, but not the obligation, to review, screen or edit any User Submission. You accept that such Submissions do not reflect the views of CIB and are not endorsed by the CIB.
We have the right to: (a) remove or refuse to post any User Submissions for any reason; (b) take any action with respect to User Submissions that we deem necessary or appropriate; (c) disclose your identity or other information about you to any third-party who in our opinion reasonably claims that material posted by you infringes their rights, including their intellectual property rights or their right to privacy; (d) take appropriate legal action, including without limitation, referral to law enforcement, for any illegal or unauthorized use of the Service; (e) terminate or suspend your access to all or part of the Service.
Without limiting the foregoing, we have the right to fully cooperate with law enforcement authorities requesting or directing us to disclose the identity or other information of anyone posting any materials on or through the Service. We do not undertake to review material before it is posted on the Service, and cannot ensure prompt removal of objectionable material after it has been posted. Accordingly, we assume no liability for any action or inaction regarding transmissions, communications or content provided by any user or third party. We have no liability or responsibility to anyone for performance or nonperformance of the activities described in this section.
We reserve the right, at any time, to change any fees or charges for using any services provided on the Service (or to begin charging fees for any free service), provided that such changes will not apply to fees or charges paid prior to the time of the change.
You may subscribe to our "CIB Free Plan". You will have access to study some of our courses for one week. For any course you complete under this plan, if you choose to have a copy of your certificate, you will be able to download PDF version of its certificate when you make payment. The certificates are offered at a fee. We reserve the rights to change the features of this plan including but not limited to the courses available, the duration of the plan and certificate fees. This plan is not renewable. Every user has a one-time offer to access the free plan. At the expiry of the free plan, you can upgrade to a premium plan to continue to access our courses. If you upgrade to a premium plan before or after your free plan expires, the certificate(s) of any course(s) you started during your free plan are not covered in the premium plans. You will have to pay for the certificate in order to download it. For instance you started the “Microsoft Excel 2013 Advanced Course” as part of your free plan but did not complete it before you upgraded to a premium plan. In order to download the Microsoft Excel 2013 Advanced Certificate”, you will pay for the certificate. However if you had not started that same course before you upgraded to a premium plan, you will download your certificate for free as part of the benefits of subscribing to premium plan.
You may subscribe to any of our "CIB Premium Plans". The applicable fee will be billed at the start of your premium subscription and thereafter at the end of the period for the premium plan unless and until you cancel your subscription. We automatically bill your Payment Method when your premium plan expires. We reserve the right to change the timing of our billing, in particular, as indicated below, if your Payment Method has not successfully settled. If your Premium Plan ends on September 30th, your next payment date will be September 30th, and your Payment Method would be billed that date.
Payments are nonrefundable and there are no refund or credits for partially used periods. Following any cancellation, however, you will continue to have the benefits of your CIB Premium Plan through the end of your current billing period. You will need to subscribe again to a premium plan if you want to complete one of our premium courses or to get the certificates for premium courses.
You may cancel your CIB Premium Plan at any time. If you have canceled your CIB Premium Plan, you will lose access to all Premium features at the end of your billing period. If you choose to subscribe again to a premium plan, your billing date will reset to the day you paid.
