In all cases, your continued use of the Services after publication of such changes, with or without notification, constitutes binding acceptance of the revised Terms.
If it turns out that a particular provision of these Terms is not enforceable, this will not affect any other terms. If you do not comply with these Terms, and we do not take immediate action, this does not indicate that we relinquish any rights that we may have (such as taking action in the future).
LearnVern's Content Providers, and integrated services providers are third party beneficiaries of the Terms and may enforce those provisions of the Terms that relate to them.
Payments once made are Non Refundable
Effective Date June 4 2021
Effective as of January 1, 2020.
For Course Certificate and Specialization Purchases
If you cancel your paid enrollment for a standalone course, LearnVern will offer you a complete refund within 30 minutes after payment, or until you have not started your Course, whichever is earlier. If you pre-enroll and pay for a course, LearnVern will offer you a complete refund until 14 days after the course launches or until you have earned your Course Certificate, whichever is earlier. For avoidance doubt, once you have earned a Course Certificate with your payment, you are not eligible for a refund even if it is within 14 days. If you do not earn your Course Certificate within 180 days, your registration will expire and you will need to pay to re-enroll for the course.
For Live Projects
LearnVern does not offer refunds for payments made for Live projects. If you do not earn your completion certificate within 180 days after registering for a Live project, your registration will expire and you will need to pay to re-enroll for the Live project in order to complete the Live project and earn your completion certificate. If you have subscribed through a third party marketplace that restricts LearnVern's ability to issue refunds -- e.g., in-app purchases through the Apple App Store, please visit the third party marketplace for information regarding their policies.
For Other Paid Services
Except as described in this Refund Policy or as explicitly stated as part of the sign-up process for a Service, LearnVern has no obligation to provide refunds or vouchers for any other Services.
Third Party Marketplaces
Notwithstanding the foregoing, if you purchase or subscribe for a course, Specialization, Live project, or purchase any other paid Service, through a third party marketplace (e.g., in-app purchases through the Apple App Store or purchases made through certain alternative payment services), the refund policy applicable to that third party marketplace will apply, unless otherwise explicitly stated by LearnVern. Except as otherwise explicitly stated by LearnVern, the third party marketplace will be solely responsible for making refunds under its refund policy, and LearnVern will have no refund obligations. LearnVern disclaims any responsibility or liability related to any third party marketplace's refund policy or the third party's compliance or noncompliance with such policy.

My answers to homework, quizzes, exams, projects, and other assignments will be my own work (except for assignments that explicitly permit collaboration).
