1. Description of Services.

As part of the Services, we provide a platform via our website and various related games, applications, features, content, and online classes “Class” or “Classes” with “Online Teachers” (teachers that provide online teaching services via the Service).

Users of the Services (“Users”) include “Child Users” or “Students” (children who use the child-directed learning portion of the Services), “Adult Users” (including parents and guardians of Child Users, teachers and school administrators).

Lingokids takes reasonable measures to ensure that only high-quality Online Teachers provide Classes via the Services. All Online Teachers are subject to a teacher Code of Conduct where they must agree to provide quality and accurate services.

Consent to Record Classes. Classes are recorded and you consent to be recorded if you are over 13, for Child Users and those users under the age of 13, we obtain verifiable parental consent detailed in our Privacy Policy. Once you or the Student has entered into the online classroom, the Services will start record the whole class automatically for the purpose of teaching quality control and child safety. By accepting the Privacy Policy and the Term of use, you have agreed to record all the online classes.

Parental Permission to Record Classes. You agree to ask the parent for permission to record the Class at the start of any Trial class. If the parent does not give permission you will cease the recording immediately and Company will delete the recording. If a parent is not present to seek consent, you will not record the Class.

Class Attendance. If the Student cannot attend a Class on the scheduled time as confirmed and listed in the Student account, a User may cancel or reschedule such Class at least 24 hours in advance. If the User fails to cancel or reschedule such Class at least 24 hours in advance, the Student will be deemed as “no-show” for this Class. Each no-show will result in deduction of one Class from the User’s subscription. If the Student fails to attend a Class on the scheduled starting time but attends the Class during the scheduled time period, this Class shall be concluded upon the scheduled ending time, and, neither the Student nor User can request that the ending time of the Class be postponed or prolonged. This Class will be deemed as completed and will be deducted from the number of remaining Classes in the User account.

Online Teacher Absence. If a User cannot complete a scheduled Class due to Company or the Online Teacher’s reasons, which include but are not limited to, (i) the Online Teacher is late for over 5 minutes, (ii) the Online Teacher cancels the Class or stops teaching prior to the scheduled ending time for any reason; or (iii) Company’s website or Services experiences system outages, a User may reschedule such Class, and such Class will not be deducted from the number of remaining Classes in the User’s account. Other than the right to reschedule the same Class as provided herein, neither Company or any Online Teacher shall have responsibility and is not liable for: (a) the unavailability of the Class during the scheduled time period; (b) any loss of materials, data, transactions or any other information or materials caused by such system outages; (c) the resultant delay, mis-delivery, or non-delivery of data, transactions or any other information or materials caused by such system outages; or (d) any outages caused by any third parties, including without limitation, any companies or servers hosting the Class, any Internet service providers, any third party platforms, or any internet facilities and networks.

Class Cancellations. Online Teachers are required to teach Classes that have been scheduled with them. We will determine particular circumstances as excusable motives for cancellation. We require documentation or proof justifying a cancellation. Unexcused Class cancellations may be considered a violation of the agreement. You hereby acknowledge that canceled Classes are not billable and therefore, will not be paid to you.

As an independent contractor, the Company shall not provide any employee benefits to you, such as health insurance, life insurance, profit sharing, or any other employment fringe benefit.

4. Accounts, Passwords, and Payments.

A. Account Types. We currently offer the following types of accounts through the Services: Family Accounts, Teacher Accounts, and Online Teacher Accounts (collectively, “Accounts”).

(i) Family Accounts. A Family Account can have a maximum of four users, including an Adult User and up to three Child Users that Adult Users add to the Family Account.

(ii) Teacher Accounts. Teacher Accounts may only be registered by an Adult currently employed (a “Teacher”) by a school, school district, licensed childcare facility, or other licensed educational institution or program (“Educational Institution”). Please note, these are NOT Online Teacher accounts that are used to teach online with the Services. To be eligible for a free Teacher Account, the Teacher must at all times during the subscription period be currently employed by an Educational Institution. The Teacher’s employment status must be independently verifiable, and the Teacher must only use or facilitate the use of the Teacher Account for students at the Educational Institution for which the Teacher has authorization. If a Teacher wants to use the Services for their own family, they must register for a Family Account. By registering for a Teacher Account, you represent and warrant that (a) you have permission from your Educational Institution to enter into these Terms on its behalf, and to use the Services as part of learning activities, and (b) your use of the Services and provision of student data through the Services is compliant with any obligations you and your Educational Institution have under applicable laws, including without limitation the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act. If at any point in time you no longer are employed at, or have permission to use the Services from, your Educational Institution, you agree that you will notify Company immediately. Teacher Accounts are free and are offered in the sole discretion of Company and we reserve the right to decline to issue, cancel, or change the terms and/or conditions of any or all Teacher Accounts at any time for any reason, except with respect to the collection, use, and disclosure of Child User information, which we will treat in accordance with our Privacy Policy.

(iii) Online Teacher Accounts. Online Teacher Accounts may only be registered by Online Teachers currently teaching with Company. To be eligible for an Online Teacher Account, the Online Teacher must at all times during the subscription period be an Online Teacher with the Company. If an Online Teacher wants to use the Services for their own family, they must register for a Family Account. Online Teacher Accounts are free and include access to the Services (e.g. Lingokids app) and are offered in the sole discretion of Company and we reserve the right to decline to issue, cancel, or change the terms and/or conditions of any or all Online Teacher Accounts at any time for any reason, except with respect to the collection, use, and disclosure of Child User information, which we will treat in accordance with our Privacy Policy.

B. Passwords and Account Access. Every Account has one designated Adult User who must be at least 18 years of age. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and Account information. You agree (a) that you will provide complete and accurate registration information about yourself and any individual you authorize to access your Account and keep your Account information up-to-date, (b) that you are solely responsible for all activities that occur under your Account, (c) to notify us immediately of any unauthorized Account use, (d) that we are in no way responsible for any loss that you may incur as a result of any unauthorized use of your Account and password, and (e) that you will not sell, transfer, or assign your Account or any Account rights. If we learn that an ineligible user has created an Account, we may seek confirmation of the user’s status or deactivate the Account.

C. Account Fees. For certain types of Accounts, we may charge a fee, such as an Account fee or subscription fee. For existing subscribers, we may change your fee at any time in our sole discretion at the end of your subscription period. All fees are payable in accordance with payment terms in effect at the time the fee or the charge becomes payable. We may offer promotional trial subscriptions to access the Services for free or at special discounted prices. If you sign up for a trial subscription, your rights to use the Services are limited by the terms of such trial and will terminate or renew according to the terms of your trial arrangement and/or any applicable Additional Terms. Please note that we do not provide price protection or refunds for existing subscribers in the event of a price drop or promotional offering for new subscribers.

(i) Authorization to Charge for Services. You must either use a credit card, debit card or other payment mechanism accepted by us (e.g., Google Play Store, Apple’s iTunes App Store) (“Pay Mechanism”) to activate and maintain a paid Account. You authorize us to charge you through the Pay Mechanism that you use when registering for an Account. You will also be responsible for charges for any products or services that you order that are offered for sale through the Services. If we do not receive payment from the Pay Mechanism you use, you agree to pay all amounts due hereunder upon our demand and will be solely responsible for any dispute with your payment provider. Should the Pay Mechanism provided initially be declined for insufficient funds or any other reason, we reserve the right to attempt to recharge the Pay Mechanism in full or in lesser installments of the initially incurred charge. You will not be charged more than the amount for which you purchased your Account subscription. You will be solely responsible for all overdraft fees and/or penalties that may be assessed by your payment provider. We use a third-party service provider to process payments on our behalf. You acknowledge and agree that in the event the third-party payment processor experiences a data breach that affects your information through no fault of Company, Company will in no way be responsible or liable to you for any such breach.

(ii) Subscription Renewal. By activating an Account, you agree that we may renew your subscription automatically for the same subscription term on the day after your previous subscription ends, and you authorize us to charge you for the subscription term, unless you cancel your Account prior to its renewal date through the procedures described in the “Subscription Cancellation” section below. We will charge your credit card (or the other method of payment initially used by you) each year, month, or other applicable period (depending on the term that you selected) for the then-current applicable price.

(iii) Subscription Cancellation. Unless you purchased your subscription through Apple’s iTunes App Store, to cancel your subscription and avoid future billing, you may cancel your Account prior to its renewal date through the Manage My Subscription area in the Parents Section of the App or by contacting our Customer Support team. If you do so, please know that we endeavor to have customer requests handled within 24 hours; however, we cannot guarantee that your cancellation will be registered within that time period. We will honor all cancellations received before the renewal date, outside of iTunes App Store subscriptions. If you downloaded our app through Apple’s iTunes App Store, you must follow the cancellation instructions provided in the iTunes App Store. For all Accounts, you will continue to have access to your Account for the period of time that has already been prepaid. If you activated a paid Account at a discounted or promotional rate, chose to pay in installments, and then canceled that Account prior to all of the installments having been paid, the period of time after cancellation that your Account will continue to be accessible will be calculated based on the non-promotional/non-discounted rate in effect at the time of cancellation. After you cancel your Account, we will not charge you any subscription fees after the expiration of your then-current subscription. Please note we do not provide full or partial refunds for prepaid sums. In any event, you will be able to continue to use the Services throughout the remainder of the subscription period for which you have already paid. In addition, if you have purchased Classes and cancel the renewal of your subscription, you will be able to use any remaining Classes before the renewal date. A Class will remain accessible to you for a period of 30 days from the day following the date of purchase of the Class. Any Class not used before this date will not be honored. Canceling your Class subscription will also end access to your paid Account within the App.

(iv) Refunds. If you sign up for a trial subscription through a Pay Mechanism that is NOT through Apple’s iTunes App Store, you are entitled to a refund for any fees paid for your Account within 7 days of the payment date. After the 7th day, you are not entitled to any refund. If your Account includes any additional add on services (for example Classes), you are not entitled to any refund.

9. Governing Law/Jurisdiction.

A. Governing Law/Jurisdiction. These Terms and any Additional Terms shall be governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the State of California, without regard to conflict of laws and principles and each party hereby submits to the nonexclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts of California for purposes of all legal proceedings arising out of or relating to these Terms and the services contemplated hereby.

B. Arbitration and Dispute Resolution. If any controversy, allegation, or claim arises out of or relates to the Services or these Terms (collectively, “Dispute”), you and we agree to the following resolution process with respect to the Dispute. To most efficiently resolve any Dispute, you and we agree to first discuss the Dispute informally for at least thirty (30) days. To do so, the party who wants to raise the Dispute must first send to the other party a notice that must include (1) a description of the Dispute and (2) a proposed resolution (together, the “Dispute Notice”). If you want to raise a Dispute, you must send your Dispute Notice by certified mail to us at: Monkimun Inc 427 N Tatnall St #42597 Wilmington, Delaware 19801-2230 USA. If we would like to subsequently discuss your Dispute Notice with you, we will contact you by using contact information included with your Dispute Notice. If we want to raise a Dispute, we will send our Dispute Notice to you at the email address we have on file for you. If we do not have a valid email address on file for you, we will send our Dispute Notice to you through certified mail.

If you and Company do not reach an agreed-upon resolution within 30 days of receipt of the Dispute Notice, you and Company agree that the Dispute will be resolved solely by binding arbitration in accordance with the then current Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”). The arbitration will be heard and determined by a single neutral arbitrator who is a lawyer or retired judge, who will administer the proceedings in accordance with the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes. In resolving the Dispute, the arbitrator will consider applicable law, the provisions of these Terms and any Additional Terms, and any facts based upon the record and no other basis, and will issue a reasoned decision. If a party properly submits the Dispute to the AAA for arbitration and the AAA is unwilling or unable to set a hearing date within sixty (60) days of the filing of a “demand for arbitration,” then either party can elect to have the arbitration administered by the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services Inc. (“JAMS”) and determined by a single neutral arbitrator who is a lawyer or retired judge, using JAMS’ Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures, or by any other arbitration administration service to which you and we consent. You can obtain AAA and JAMS procedures, rules, and fee information as follows: AAA: 800.778.7879 JAMS: 800.352.5267

(i) Nature, Limitations, and Location of Alternative Dispute Resolution. In arbitration, as with a court, the arbitrator will resolve the submitted Dispute and can issue a decision consistent with this Section 6. However, WITH ARBITRATION, THERE IS NO JUDGE OR JURY; THE ARBITRATION PROCEEDINGS AND ARBITRATION ARE SUBJECT TO CERTAIN CONFIDENTIALITY RULES; AND JUDICIAL REVIEW OF THE ARBITRATION OUTCOME IS LIMITED. All parties to the arbitration will have the right, at their own expense, to be represented by an attorney or other advocate of their choosing. If an in-person arbitration hearing is required, then it will be conducted in the “metropolitan statistical area” (as defined by the U.S. Census Bureau) where you are a resident at the time the Dispute is submitted to arbitration. You and we will pay the administrative and arbitrator’s fees and other costs in accordance with the applicable arbitration rules, but if applicable arbitration rules or laws require us to pay a greater portion or all of such fees and costs in order for this Section 6 to be enforceable, then we will have the right to elect to pay the fees and costs and proceed to arbitration. Discovery will be permitted pursuant to the applicable arbitration rules. The arbitrator’s decision must consist of a written statement stating the disposition of each claim of the Dispute, and must provide a statement of the essential findings and conclusions on which the decision and any award (if any) is based. Judgment on the arbitration decision and award (if any) may be entered into any court that has jurisdiction over the parties.

(ii) Small Claims Matters Are Excluded. Either of us may bring a qualifying claim of Disputes in small claims court.

C. Injunctive Relief. The foregoing provisions of this Section 6 will not apply to any legal action taken by either party to seek an injunction or other equitable relief in conjunction with any intellectual property claim or claim related to unauthorized access to data through the Services (including, but not limited to, claims related to patent, copyright, trademark, and trade secrets, and claims relating to the access or retrieval of data through the Services using an automated process such as scraping).

D. Timing of Claim. To help resolve any issues between you and us promptly and directly, you and Company agree that any Dispute Notice must be sent, or that any small claims or injunctive relief complaint permitted under this Section 6 must be filed, within one year after the events giving rise to the Dispute arise; otherwise, the Dispute is waived.

E. No Class Actions. You and Company agree that any Disputes will be arbitrated only on an individual basis and will not be consolidated with any other arbitrations or other proceedings that involve any claim or controversy of any other party.

The Services (including the Content and the User-Generated Content); Your use of or inability to use the Services, or the performance of the Services; The failure of a child user to learn or otherwise benefit educationally from their use of the Services; Any action taken in connection with an investigation by Company Parties or law enforcement authorities regarding your access to or use of the Services; Any action taken in connection with copyright or other intellectual property owners or other rights owners; Any errors or omissions in the Services’ technical operation; or Any damage to any user’s computer, hardware, software, modem, or other equipment or technology, including damage from any security breach or from any virus, bugs, tampering, fraud, error, omission, interruption, defect, delay in operation or transmission, computer line, or network failure or any other technical or other malfunction, including losses or damages in the form of lost profits, loss of goodwill, loss of data, work stoppage, inaccuracy of results, or equipment failure or malfunction.

The foregoing limitations of liability will apply even if any of the events or circumstances were foreseeable and even if Company Parties were advised of or should have known of the possibility of such losses or damages, regardless of whether you bring an action of contract, negligence, strict liability, or tort (including whether caused, in whole or in part, by negligence, force majeure, telecommunications failure, or destruction of the Services).

Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages of the sort that are described above, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.
