Our website, domain (www.jtceducation.com/), App, software, platform, logos, JTC Education Content, designs, trademarks, trade dress, trade name, all of our features, functionalities and services, shall remain the sole property of JTC Education, Tutors, and/or its licensors, as the case may be. Your use of or access to our Site or Platform or availing of our services shall not in any way transfer or assign to you any ownership or other proprietary rights in or to this Platform, our services, any content (except your own content), designs, published by us or our licensors or third parties. This Platform and the content, including but not limited to the trademark, logo, copyright, design, layout, typography, underlying HTML, Java scripts, text, audio clips, video clips and graphics, and in the expression of the information contained herein, whether as a compilation or otherwise is protected by relevant Intellectual Property laws, rules and regulations. Trademarks, trade names and designs appearing on this Platform are the exclusive property of, or are licensed to JTC Education and are protected under applicable law. No use of a trademark, trade dress, trade name, domain, content or design appearing on our website/App may be made without the prior written permission of JTC Education.
While using our Platform and our Services, you may encounter content or information (such as bio, education qualifications, photos, videos, etc.) that is posted by Tutors. Therefore, there is a likelihood that such information or content be inaccurate, incomplete, delayed, misleading, illegal, offensive or otherwise harmful. JTC Education generally does not review content provided by our Tutors or other users. We disclaim all guarantees and liabilities in this respect.

JTC Education merely makes the Platform and Services available to enable Tutors and Users to find and transact directly with each other. JTC Education does not introduce Tutors to Users, or select Tutors for Users. The users are responsible for evaluating and determining the suitability of any Tutor or their services on their own. We assume no responsibility with respect to any loss that you or your child may suffer as a result of availing the services from the Tutors through our Platform. All responsibilities in this respect shall lie with the respective Tutor, as the case may be. If you decide to avail the services of a Tutor, the service contract is directly between you and the respective Tutor, and JTC Education is not a party to that contract. To cancel a confirmed lesson, please refer to our Cancellation & Refund Policy posted on the website and App.
The booking and payments can be made for the Tutor’s services on the Platform. Once a parent/guardian
signs up, they may purchase booking credits from the ‘balance’ page and link their account with their children through the ‘Manage Children’ tab. After doing this, parents/guardians may manage their own children’s schedules or choose to delegate all scheduling to the children themselves. Provided you have enough balance, you may send a lesson request to any Tutor on the App at any time through the ‘Book a Lesson’ page. If such Tutor is certain that they can help you with your request, they will accept your lesson, which then will appear as confirmed in your ‘My Lessons’ page. We assume no responsibility with respect to any loss that you or your child may suffer as a result of booking or paying through our Platform. All responsibilities in this respect shall lie with the respective Tutor, as the case may be. You shall be responsible to bear all the applicable taxes (wherever applicable). We reserve the right to modify (and increase) the prices of any and all lessons on JTC Education. This may also affect the cancelled lesson if you try booking it after we have raised our prices. We also reserve the right to discontinue any part of the Platform (or indeed the whole platform), at any time at our sole discretion, without any prior notice.
To the maximum extent permitted by law, in no event shall JTC Education (or our licensors or affiliates) be liable to you, your child, or any third party for any educational loss, academic loss, financial loss, transaction failure, fraud, loss occurred due to classes or services or answers availed/received from Tutors, costs of procurement of substitute services, or any indirect, consequential, exemplary, incidental, special or punitive damages arising from or relating to these Terms or your use of, or inability to use the Platform, even if JTC Education has been advised of the possibility of such damages. Access to, and use of, the Platform is at your own discretion and risk, and you will be solely responsible for any damage to yours, and/or your child’s education, person or device or computer system, or loss of data resulting therefrom. To the maximum extent permitted by law, notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, our liability to you for any damages arising from or related to these Terms (for any cause whatsoever and regardless of the form of the action), will at all times be limited to the amount paid by you for the respective lesson in question. The existence of more than one claim will not enlarge this limit. In case where the App is down, either due to planned maintenance or due to some technical glitch or error, we will not be liable to compensate you for any reason whatsoever.
If you are found to be degrading, tarnishing, maligning the image, goodwill or reputation of JTC Education or any of its Tutors by spreading hate, insulting, false, fake reviews or engaging in mala fide actions, strong legal actions will be taken immediately.
You acknowledge to defend, indemnify and hold JTC Education, its members, Tutors, affiliates, directors, officers, employees, agents, partners, and any other licensors (hereinafter referred to as “Indemnified Party”) harmless from and against any claim, disputes, fine, liability, demand or expense, including reasonable legal counsel’ fees, made by a third party, relating to, or arising from:

Waiver: Our failure to insist on or enforce strict performance of these Terms shall not be construed as a waiver by us of any provision or any right that we have to enforce these Terms and nor shall any course of conduct between JTC Education and you or any other party be deemed to modify any provision of these Terms.

xii. Updates to these Terms: We may add to or change or update these Terms at any time, from time to time, entirely at our own discretion, with or without any prior written notice.
