Terms of Service
Last update: 29 June 2020
  1. Scope of these Terms of Service
    These Terms of Service describe the rights and obligations between Classtime Inc. ("Classtime", "we", "us") and you (collectively, "Parties" and individually, "Party") with respect to:
    • your visiting the website www.classtime.com and all websites linked to or provided by Classtime (the "Website", "Website Visitor"),
    • your use of the learning platform and other services offered through the Website (the "Services", "Users").
  2. Acceptance of the Terms of Service
    By visiting the Website and/or using the Services, you agree to these Terms of Service. If you do not agree to these Terms of Service in full and without reservation, you may not visit the Website and/or use the Services.
    Furthermore, by visiting the Website and/or using the Services, you confirm that you have reached the legal minimum age for consent to these Terms of Service or, if this is not the case, that your legal representatives (e.g. parents) have given their consent.
License to Use the Services
  1. License
    Classtime's Services are offered in different models (the "License Models"; in principle, a distinction is made between free and paid Services). Classtime may offer new license models and discontinue existing ones at any time.
    If you register to use the Services and select a specific License Model, Classtime grants you a non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, revocable, worldwide right to use the Services within the scope of the selected License Model and subject to these Terms of Service. The scope of the various License Models is shown on the Website or will be communicated to you in a personal offer.
  2. Prices, Payment
    The prices for the paid Services are shown on the Website or will be communicated to you in a personal offer. Prices are stated exclusive of any taxes and duties applicable in the relevant jurisdiction, including but not limited to value-added, consumption, sales or other taxes, fees, charges or costs imposed on the sale of our services. Such taxes and duties will be additionally charged to you.
    The Services are payable by credit card, are invoiced or are to be settled by any other means of payment offered by Classtime. If payment is made by credit card, the charge will be made at the time of the final selection of Services. Invoices are due 30 calendar days after the invoice date. If transaction fees are charged by your bank/payment provider, you agree to bear these transaction fees alone.
    You also agree to pay all collection costs (including legal fees) for any outstanding amounts.
  3. Term, Termination
    In the case of paid Services, the contract period corresponds to the license period (month, quarter, year, etc.) agreed upon when registering and selecting the License Model. The contract period is automatically and seamlessly extended by a further period of the same length if you do not terminate the contract before it expires.
    In the case of free services, you can deactivate your account at any time, which is equivalent to you terminating the contract.
    Classtime may terminate the contractual relationship at any time and with immediate effect for good cause. Good cause includes, but is not limited to (a) your failure to provide Classtime with correct and accurate account information (b) your violation of any provision of these Terms of Service.
    Upon termination, the license granted by Classtime ends. Your account will be closed and you will no longer be entitled to use the Services. We will delete the contents of your account 6 months after the account is closed.
  4. School, Business and other Institutional Licenses
    Schools, businesses and other institutions have the possibility to acquire an institutional license. If such a license agreement is concluded, it will supplement these Terms of Service and take precedence where it contradicts them.
    Sections 3-5 (Licence / Prices, Payment / Term, Termination) of these Terms of Service do not apply for Users who use the Services under an institutional licence.
