2. The UpCode Academy Service


The "UpCode Academy Service” means the website located at www.upcodeacademy.com and any associated software, applications, and Internet services under UpCode Academy’s control, whether partial or otherwise, used in connection with providing the services provided by UpCode Academy. The UpCode Academy Service provides an online platform to enable you to view information online and through other connected devices about classes, courses, workshops, and other education programs and events offered by UpCode Academy (collectively, “Courses”). These Courses are at the intersection of technology, design, and entrepreneurship and may be made available for free or for a fee, in UpCode Academy's sole discretion. Together with our members, thought leaders, and seasoned practitioners (collectively “Instructors”), UpCode Academy offers a robust curriculum focused on entrepreneurship and practices by which design and technology can be leveraged to create industry-changing products and successful companies. The UpCode Academy Service will also permit the community of users of the UpCode Academy Service to engage in discussions and communications with one another and with the Instructors.


Sign Up for a Course. You may sign up for a Course using the UpCode Academy Service. We cannot promise the availability of the Course.


Information You Provide to Instructors. Your Instructors may ask you for information, including personal information, such as your email address, to help facilitate the provision of the Course. Instructors are required to use this information only to communicate about Course materials in a professional manner. However, you agree that we are not responsible for any use of this information by an Instructor for other purposes.


Third-Party Services. The UpCode Academy Service may link to third-party websites to facilitate its provision of services to you. If you use these links, you will leave the UpCode Academy Service. Some of these third-party websites may use UpCode Academy Content (defined below) under license from UpCode Academy. UpCode Academy is not responsible for these third-party websites, whether or not UpCode Academy is affiliated with such third-party websites. Through our use, we do not endorse the organizations sponsoring such third-party websites or their products or services. You agree that UpCode Academy is not responsible or liable for any loss or damage of any sort incurred as a result of any such dealings you may have on or through a third-party website or as a result of the presence of any third-party advertising on the UpCode Academy Service.


Featuring a Course or Instructor. The UpCode Academy Service may feature a Course or Instructor as an advertisement, but this is not a recommendation of such Course or Instructor. We may also recommend a Course as part of a collection of Courses. However, as stated more fully elsewhere in these Terms, UpCode Academy makes no representations as to the quality or nature of Courses or Instructors shown on the UpCode Academy Service.


Featuring Your Work. We may promote UpCode Academy using the work you completed as part of completing a Course ( “Student Work”) with your permission, and you grant UpCode Academy a nonexclusive license to use your name in combination with your Student Work in any and all media in connection with UpCode Academy's promotional efforts. Our use will be limited to promoting UpCode Academy. UpCode Academy will include your name and attribute the Student Work to you.

Third-Party Payment Processors. UpCode Academy currently uses secure third-party payment processors for electronic commerce. Our third-party payment processors accept payments through methods detailed on the applicable payment screen, which may include various credit cards and PayPal. Information that you supply to our payment processors is not stored by us or within our control, and is subject to each of our third-party payment processors’ own privacy policies and terms and conditions.

Availability of Certain Forms of Payment. UpCode Academy accepts payment in bank transfers and other means.


Pre-Authorization. When you provide a credit card number to us to activate and/or pay for any fees related to UpCode Academy, we, through our third-party payment processor, may seek pre-authorization of your credit card account prior to a purchase to verify the credit card is valid and/or has the necessary funds or credit available to cover your purchase. These pre-authorizations will reduce your available balance by the authorization amount until it is released or reconciled with the actual charge. Please contact your card issuer if you have additional questions regarding when an authorization amount will be removed from your statement.


Timing of Charges. Charges occur within a reasonable time of the transaction or shortly thereafter, and multiple charges during the same period may be aggregated together.


Disputed Charges. You agree to submit any disputes regarding any charge to your account in writing to UpCode Academy within thirty (30) days of such charge, or your dispute is waived and such charge will be final and not subject to challenge. You may dispute a charge by sending an email to us at cs@upcodeacademy.com.


Refunds. We reserve the right, but are not obligated, to refund fees paid to us. Our policy for providing refunds, if ever, for any purchases made by you, is set forth in the UpCode Academy Refund Policy available here and is incorporated into these Terms. UpCode Academy may modify its refund policy at any time with or without specific notice to you; provided, however, that the refund policy in effect at the time of any transaction shall apply to such purchase despite any subsequent change in such policy. Please contact cs@upcodeacademy.com to request a refund.


Taxes. “Taxes” include sales, use, value added, or transaction taxes and other government-imposed fees and charges.
