This agreement sets out the terms and conditions (“Terms and Conditions”) for use of the products and services of LanguageTribe, LLC (“LanguageTribe”). If you, as a client of LanguageTribe (“User”), agree with these Terms and Conditions in order for use of the products and services of LanguageTribe (the “LanguageTribe Products” or the “Products”), click “Agree.” If you do not agree to these Terms and Conditions, do not click “Agree” and do not use the LanguageTribe Products.
PAYMENT AND REFUND POLICIES
You agree that you will pay for all LanguageTribe Products you purchase. LanguageTribe will charge the payment method you select for any Products purchased and for any additional amounts (including any taxes and late fees, as applicable) that may be accrued to your personal account (“Account”). You are responsible for all payments and payment methods.
Your total price will include the price of the Products plus any applicable tax that LanguageTribe must collect on the bill-to address and the tax rate in effect at the time. All purchases are final. The prices for Products may change at any time, and LanguageTribe does not provide protection or refunds in the event of a price reduction or promotional offering.
Purchases for Products are charged immediately to your payment method. If one of the Products becomes unavailable, by technical problems or otherwise, following a transaction but prior to use, your sole remedy is a refund. Use of a Product is the initial viewing or streaming, not any subsequent viewings or streamings. Your request for refund must be made within forty-eight (48) hours of the purchase of the Product except in the instance of the Product purchase of a teacher-assisted lesson.
In a teacher-assisted lesson, the User must select a teacher. If the teacher accepts the request, then LanguageTribe will bill the User’s credit card. If the teacher selected is unable to meet the requested lesson time, the User will have the opportunity to select another teacher from those available or to reschedule with the initial teacher if possible. If that second lesson time is cancelled by a teacher, then the User can request a refund within forty-eight (48) hours of that second requested lesson time. A User can request cancellation or rescheduling of a teacher- assisted lesson one time without penalty but only twenty-four (24) hours in advance of the lesson.
Your use of the Products includes the ability to enter into agreements and/or to make transactions electronically. You acknowledge that your electronic submissions constitute your agreement and intent to be bound by and to pay for and in accordance with such agreements and transactions. Your agreement and intent to be bound by electronic submissions applies to all transactions you enter into on the LanguageTribe site, including notices of cancellation, policies, and contracts.
