Effective Date: August 15th, 2012
The MatadorU website located at www.matadoru.com (the “Website”) is a copyrighted work belonging to Matador Network (“Matador Network”). MatadorU offers courses on the Website (each, an “Online Course” and collectively, “MatadorU”). A User enrolled in an Online Course will have access to the material for that Online Course, in addition to the other services described in the course outline for that Online Course (collectively, the “MatadorU Website Services”). When a user is no longer enrolled in an Online Course through MatadorU, the user will continue to have access to any alumni website services that Matador may offer (the “Alumni Website Services”) or may elect to subscribe to Matador Access for a monthly fee, which will entitle the user to continue to have access to the community portion of the Matador Network website (http://www.matadornetwork.com), and any other services offered from time to time by Matador Network as a part of the Matador Access Services (collectively, the “Matador Access Services”). The MatadorU Website Services, Alumni Website Services, and Matador Access Services are collectively referred to as the “Website Services.”
This Agreement is subject to occasional revision, and if we make any substantial changes, we will notify you by sending you an email to the email address on your Account and/or by prominently posting notice of the changes on our Website. Any material changes to this Agreement will be effective upon the earlier of thirty (30) calendar days following our dispatch of an email notice to you (if applicable) or thirty (30) calendar days following our posting of notice of the changes on our Website. These changes will be effective immediately for new users of our Website. You are responsible for updating your Account with your most current email address. In the event that the last email address that you have provided us is not valid, or for any reason is not capable of delivering to you the notice described above, our dispatch of the email containing such notice will nonetheless constitute effective notice of the changes described in the notice. Continued use of our Website following notice of such changes shall indicate your acknowledgment of such changes and agreement to be bound by the terms and conditions of such changes. Certain provisions of this Agreement may be superseded by expressly designated legal notices or terms located on particular pages of the Website.
1. Registration and Payment.
1.1 Registration. You represent and warrant that: (a) all required registration information you submit is truthful and accurate; (b) you will maintain the accuracy of such information; and (c) your use of the Website Services does not violate any applicable law or regulation or the terms of this Agreement. During the MatadorU registration process, you will be asked to choose a username and a password for your MatadorU account (“Account”). You are entirely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password. You agree not to use the Account of another user at any time. You may not share your login, password, or access to or use of any Online Course materials with any other person. You agree to notify us immediately if you suspect any unauthorized use of your Account or access to your password. You are solely responsible for any and all use of your Account.
a) If you are enrolling in an Online Course or the Matador Access Services, you agree to pay the one time tuition fee set forth in the registration process (“Tuition Fee”) for the Online Course or the subscription fee for the Matador Access Services. You must provide Matador with a valid credit card (Visa, MasterCard, American Express or any other issuer accepted by us) or PayPal account as a condition to signing up for the Services. You will be directed to make a nonrefundable downpayment of $10 (the “Downpayment”) for any Online Course prior to completion of the registration process. You may cancel your enrollment in the Online Course at any time during the Cancellation Period set forth in the registration materials you completed when you enrolled in that Online Course (the “Cancellation Period”). To cancel your enrollment you must access your Account and follow the online directions for cancelling an Online Course. If you do not cancel your enrollment during the Cancellation Period, Matador Networks will charge the remainder of the Tuition Fee (less the Downpayment) to your PayPal account. For example, if you register for an Online Course (i.e., pay the Downpayment through your PayPal account), you may cancel your enrollment in the Online Course at any time prior to the end of the Cancellation Period set forth in the registration materials you completed at the time you enrolled for that Online Course. If you do not cancel your enrollment before the end of the Cancellation Period, the remainder of the Tuition Fee will be charged to you on the first day after the end of the Cancellation Period.
b) Except as set forth above, all Tuition Fees are non-refundable. Fees are exclusive of all taxes, levies, or duties imposed by taxing authorities, and you are responsible for payment of all such taxes, levies or duties. Any amounts not paid when due shall bear interest at the rate of one and one half percent (1.5%) per month, or the maximum legal rate if less.
