Shikkhangon.com is a one stop digital platform for education. We enable anyone anywhere to create and share educational courses (instructors) and to enrol in these educational courses to learn (students). We consider our marketplace model the best way to offer valuable educational content to our users. We need rules to keep our platform and services safe for you, us and our student and instructor community. These terms and conditions outline the rules and regulations for the use of Shikkhangon.com Website.
In order to access the Services and to avail the use of the Application/products, you shall be required to register yourself with the Application/Services/products, and maintain an account with the Application/Services/products. It is your sole responsibility to ensure that the account information provided by you is accurate, complete and latest.
You shall be responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of the account information and for all activities that occur under your account. You agree to (a) ensure that you successfully log out from your account at the end of each session; and (b) immediately notify the Company of any unauthorized use of your account.
Without prior approval and written permission, you may not create frames around our Web Pages that alter in any way the visual presentation or appearance of our Website.
You need an account for most activities on our platform, including to purchase and enrol in a course or to submit a course for publication. When setting up and maintaining your account, you must provide and continue to provide accurate and complete information, including a valid email address. You have complete responsibility for your account and everything that happens on your account, including for any harm or damage (to us or anyone else) caused by someone using your account without your permission. This means you need to be careful with your password. You may not transfer your account to someone else or use someone else’s account. If you contact us to request access to an account, we will not grant you such access unless you can provide us with the information that we need to prove you are the owner of that account. In the event of the death of a user, the account of that user will be closed.
Course Enrolment and Lifetime Access:
When you enrol in a course, you get a permission from us to view it via the Shikkhangon Services and no other use. Don’t try to transfer or resell courses in any way. We grant you a lifetime access permission, except when we must disable the course because of legal or policy reasons.
When instructors publish a course on shikkhangon.com, they grant Shikkhangon.com an access to offer a access to the course to students. As a student, when you enrol in a course, whether it’s a free or paid course, you are getting a permission from Shikkhangon.com to view the course via the Shikkhangon platform and Services and Shikkhangon is the authority of record.
We generally give a lifetime access to our students when they enrol in a course. However, we reserve the right to revoke any access and use courses at any point in time in the event where we decide or are obligated to disable access to a course due to legal or policy reasons, for example, if the course you enrolled in is the object of a copyright complaint, or if we determine its content violates our Trust & Safety Guidelines. The lifetime access is not applicable to add-on features and services associated with a course. For example, translation captions of courses may be disabled by instructors at any time, and instructors may decide at any time to no longer provide teaching assistance or Q & A services in association with a course. To be clear, the lifetime access is to the course content but not to the instructor.
Instructors may not grant permission to their courses to students directly, and any such direct access shall be null and void and a violation of these Terms.
