Answered’s mission is to empower educators (tutors and teachers) and students in their journeys. We enable anyone anywhere to create and share educational content and to access that educational content to learn. 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 educator and student community. These Terms apply to all your activities on the Answered's website, the Answered mobile applications, our TV applications, our APIs, and other related services (“Services”).
If you live in the United States or Canada, by agreeing to these Terms, you agree to resolve disputes with Answered through binding arbitration (with very limited exceptions, not in court), and you waive certain rights to participate in class actions, as detailed in the Dispute Resolution section.
You need an account for most activities on our platform, including to purchase and access content or to submit content 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.
You may not share your account login credentials with anyone else. You are responsible for what happens with your account and Answered will not intervene in disputes between educators or students who have shared account login credentials. You must notify us immediately upon learning that someone else may be using your account without your permission (or if you suspect any other breach of security) by contacting our "contact us" at homepage. We may request some information from you to confirm that you are indeed the owner of your account.

2. Content rights
2.1 Educators' content rights
Content's copyright remains with the orginator (ie. educator). In other words, Answered do not own the copyrights to the uploaded content on our platforms. However, when educators publish content on Answered, they grant Answered a license to sell the content to students. This means that we have the right to sublicense the content to enrolled students. In the event if Answered is to be notified of any violation of copyright's content by educator, Answered's reserve the right to cease broadcast and selling of the content until issue is resolved. If the content is found to be in violation of copyright's issue, Answered has the rights to delete the content and to obtain the fees from educator to be refunded back to the respective students.
Educators may not grant licenses to their content to students directly, and any such direct license shall be null and void and a violation of these Terms.
2.2 Students' content rights
As a student, when you enroll in a course or other content, whether it’s free or paid content, you are getting a license from Answered to view the content via the Answered's platform and Services, and Answered is the licensor of record. Content is licensed, and not sold, to you. This license does not give you any right to resell the content in any manner (including by sharing account information with a purchaser or illegally downloading the content and sharing it on torrent sites).
In legal, more complete terms, Answered grants you (as a student) a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable license to access and view the content for which you have paid all required fees, solely for your personal, non-commercial, educational purposes through the Services, in accordance with these Terms and any conditions or restrictions associated with the particular content or feature of our Services. All other uses are expressly prohibited. You may not reproduce, redistribute, transmit, assign, sell, broadcast, rent, share, lend, modify, adapt, edit, create derivative works of, sublicense, or otherwise transfer or use any content unless we give you explicit permission to do so in a written agreement signed by a Answered's authorized representative. This also applies to content you can access via any of our APIs.
Answered reserve the right to revoke any license to access and use any content at any point in time in the event where we decide or are obligated to disable access to the content due to legal or policy reasons, for example, if the course or other content you enrolled in is the object of a copyright complaint, or if we determine it violates our Privacy Policies.
4. Content and Behavior Rules
You may not access or use the Services or create an account for unlawful purposes. Your use of the Services and behavior on our platform must comply with applicable local or national laws or regulations of your country. You are solely responsible for the knowledge of and compliance with such laws and regulations that are applicable to you.
If you are a student, the Services enable you to ask questions to the educators of courses or other content you are enrolled in, and to post reviews of content. For certain content, the educator may invite you to submit content as “homework” or tests. Don’t post or submit anything that is not yours.
If you are an educator, you can submit content for publication on the platform and you can also communicate with the students who have enrolled in your courses or other content. In both cases, you must abide by the law and respect the rights of others: you cannot post any course, question, answer, review or other content that violates applicable local or national laws or regulations of your country. You are solely responsible for any courses, content, and actions you post or take via the platform and Services and their consequences.
If we are put on notice that your course or content violates the law or the rights of others (for example, if it is established that it violates intellectual property or image rights of others, or is about an illegal activity) or if we believe your content or behavior is unlawful, inappropriate, or objectionable (for example if you impersonate someone else), we may remove your content from our platform. Answered complies with copyright laws.
Answered has discretion in enforcing these Terms. We may restrict or terminate your permission to use our platform and Services or ban your account at any time, with or without notice, for any or no reason, including for any violation of these Terms, if you fail to pay any fees when due, for fraudulent chargeback requests, upon the request of law enforcement or government agencies, for extended periods of inactivity, for unexpected technical issues or problems, if we suspect that you engage in fraudulent or illegal activities, or for any other reason in our sole discretion. Upon any such termination we may delete your account and content, and we may prevent you from further access to the platforms and use of our Services. Your content may still be available on the platforms even if your account is terminated or suspended. You agree that we will have no liability to you or any third party for termination of your account, removal of your content, or blocking of your access to our platforms and services.

5. Answered's Rights to content you post

When you post content, comments, questions, reviews, and when you submit to us ideas and suggestions for new features or improvements, you authorize Answered to use and share this content with anyone, distribute it and promote it on any platform and in any media, and to make modifications or edits to it as we see fit.

6. Using Answered's at own risk

We do not exercise any editorial control over the content that is available on the platform and, as such, do not guarantee in any manner the reliability, validity, accuracy, or truthfulness of the content. If you access content, you rely on any information provided by an instructor at your own risk. Although content is subejected to approval by our admininstrator before releasing on Answered, this does not put Answered in any form of liability to compensate educators or students for any losses as a result of any possible factors.
By using the Services, you may be exposed to content that you consider offensive, indecent, or objectionable. Answered has no responsibility to keep such content from you and no liability for your access or enrollment in any course or other content, to the extent permissible under applicable law.

You acknowledge the inherent risks and dangers in the strenuous nature of these types of content, and by accessing such content you choose to assume those risks voluntarily, including risk of illness, bodily injury, disability, or death. You assume full responsibility for the choices you make before, during, and after your access to the content.
When you interact directly with a student or an educator you must be careful about the types of personal information that you share. While we restrict the types of information educators may request from students, we do not control what students and educators do with the information they obtain from other users on the platform. You should not share your email or other personal information about you for your safety.
We do not hire or employ educators nor are we responsible or liable for any interactions involved between educators and students. We are not liable for disputes, claims, losses, injuries, or damage of any kind that might arise out of or relate to the conduct of educators or students.
