You need an account for most activities on our platform. Keep your password somewhere safe, because you are responsible for all activity associated with your account. If you suspect someone else is using your account, let us know by contacting us. You must be at least 18 years old to use Acadyme.
You need an account for most activities on our platform, including to purchase and enroll in a course. 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. You may not share your account login details with anyone. 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 the login credential information for that account. In the event of the death of a user, the account of that user will be closed.
You must notify us immediately upon learning that someone else may be using your account(or if you suspect any other breach of security). We may request some information from you to confirm that you are indeed the owner of your account.
You must be at least 18 years of age to create an account on Acadyme and use the Services. If you are younger than the required age, you may not set up an account, but we encourage you to invite a parent or guardian to open an account and help you enroll in courses that are appropriate for you. If we discover that you have created an account and you are younger than 18 years old, we will terminate your account.
You may terminate your account at any time, but you will not receive any refunds for courses you have already purchased access to.
2. Course Enrollment and 1 year access
When you enroll in a course, you get a license from us to view it via the Acadyme Servicesand no other use. Do not try to transfer or resell courses in any way.
When you enroll in a course, whether it is a free or paid course, you are getting from Acadyme a license to view the course via the Acadyme platform and Services, and Acadyme is the licensor. Courses are licensed, and not sold, to you. This license does not give you any right to resell the course in any manner (including by sharing account information with someone else or illegally downloading the course and sharing it on torrent sites).
In legal, more complete terms, Acadyme grants you (as a student) a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable license to access and view the courses and associated 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 a particular courses 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 course unless we give you explicit permission to do so in a written agreement signed by an authorised representative of Acadyme. This also applies to content you can access via any of our APIs.
We generally give a lifetime access license to our students when they enroll in a course. However, we reserve the right to revoke any license to 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 any of our guidelines The lifetime access is not applicable to add-on features and services associated with a course, for example any translation captions of courses (if existing) may be disabled by instructors at any time, and an instructor 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 available on the platform at any given time, but not to the instructor.
3. Payments and No Refunds
The price applicable to a course will be the price at the time you complete your purchase of the course (at checkout). Any price offered for a particular course may be different when you are logged into your account from the price available to users who are not registered or logged in, because some of our promotions are available to new users only.
If you are logged into your account, the listed currency you see is based on your location when you created your account. If you are not logged into your account, the price currency is based on the country where you are located. We do not enable users to see pricing in other currencies.
If you are a student located in a country where use and sales tax, goods and services tax, or value added tax is applicable to consumer sales, we are responsible for collecting and remitting that tax to the proper tax authorities. In certain countries, the price you see may include such taxes.
You agree to pay the fees for courses that you purchase, and you authorise us to charge your debit or credit card or process other means of payment you have chosen from the alternatives we offer for those fees. Acadyme works with third party payment processing partners to offer you the most convenient payment methods in your country and to keep your payment information secure.
We reserve the right to disable access to any course for which we have not received adequate payments.
3.3 No Refunds
All sales are final. Since the courses are made available as digital content, cancellation rights do not apply.
4. Content and Behavior Rules
You are only allowed to use Acadyme for lawful purposes. You are responsible for all the content that you post on our platform. You should keep the reviews, questions, posts, courses and other content you upload in line with our guidelines and the law, and respect the intellectual property rights of others. We can ban your account for repeated or major offences. If you think someone is infringing your copyright on our platform, let us know.

The Services may enable you to ask questions to the instructors of courses you are enrolled in, and to post reviews of courses. For certain courses, the instructor may invite you to submit content as “homework” or tests. Do not post or submit anything that is not yours. You must have all intellectual property rights to any content posted or submitted by you.
You may not post or submit any content that is false, misleading, untruthful or inaccurate; or is threatening, abusive, harassing, defamatory, libellous, deceptive, fraudulent, invasive of another’s privacy, tortious, obscene or pornographic.
If we are put on notice that any content uploaded by you to the platform 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), if we discover that your content or behaviour violates our guidelines, or if we believe your content or behaviour is unlawful or otherwise in violation of these Terms, we may remove your content from our platform. Acadyme complies with all applicable intellectual property laws. Acadyme has discretion in enforcing these Terms and our guidelines. We may terminate or suspend your permission to use our platform and Services or ban your account at any time, with or without notice, for any violation of these Terms, if you fail to pay any fees when due, upon the request of law enforcement or government agencies, for extended periods of inactivity, for unexpected technical issues or problems, or if we suspect that you engage in fraudulent or illegal activities. 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.
If you find any content on our platform which you believe infringes anyone else’s intellectual property rights, please let us know.
5. Acadyme’s Rights to Content You Post
The content you post as a student remains yours. By posting content, you allow Acadyme to reuse and share it but you do not lose any ownership rights you may have over your content.
When you post comments, questions, reviews, and when you submit to us ideas and suggestions for new features or improvements, you authorise Acadyme 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. In legal language, by submitting or posting content on or through the platforms, you grant us a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free license (with the right to sublicense) to use, copy, reproduce, process, adapt, modify, publish, transmit, display, and distribute your content in any and all media or distribution methods (existing now or later developed). This includes making your content available to other companies, organisations, or individuals who partner with Acadyme . You represent and warrant that you have all the rights, power, and authority necessary to authorise us to use any content that you submit. You also agree to all such uses of your content with no compensation paid to you.
6. Using Acadyme at Your Own Risk
We do not guarantee in any manner the reliability, validity, accuracy or truthfulness of the courses. If you enroll a course, you rely on any information provided by an instructor at your own risk.
Acadyme has no liability for your access or enrollment in any course, to the extent permissible under applicable law, particularly relating to health, wellness and physical exercise. You acknowledge the inherent risks and dangers in the strenuous nature of these types of courses, and by enrolling in such courses, 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 enrollment in a course.
When you interact directly with a student or an instructor, you must be careful about the types of personal information that you share. We do not, and cannot, control what students and instructors 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.
You may not post any personal data that may qualify as special categories of data in accordance with the general data protection regulation (EU) 2016/679 about yourself or someone else. This includes personal data revealing racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, or trade union membership, genetic data, biometric data, data concerning health and data concerning a natural person’s sex life or sexual orientation. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you may post health data about yourself in order to get more out of the courses. Please note that providing personal data about health is never a requirement, and it is strictly based on your consent, which you can withdraw at any time. The reason for why we allow for you to post health data about yourself is because in some situations it may be beneficial to you to receive modified work out guidelines from your instructors, for example.
We are not responsible or liable for any interactions involved between instructors 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 instructors or students.
When you use our Services, you will find links to other websites that we do not own or control.

8. Miscellaneous Legal Terms
8.1 Binding Agreement
These Terms (including any agreements and policies linked from these Terms) constitute the entire agreement between you and us.
If any part of these Terms is found to be invalid or unenforceable by applicable law, then that provision will be deemed superseded by a valid, enforceable provision that most closely matches the intent of the original provision and the remainder of these Terms will continue in effect.
Even if we are delayed in exercising our rights or fail to exercise a right in one case, it does not mean we waive our rights under these Terms, and we may decide to enforce them in the future. If we decide to waive any of our rights in a particular instance, it does not mean we waive our rights generally or in the future.
The following sections shall survive the expiration or termination of these Terms:
- 2 (Course Enrollment and Lifetime Access)
- 5 (Acadyme’s Rights to Content You Post)
- 6 (Using Acadyme at Your Own Risk)
- 7 (Acadyme’s Rights)
- 8 (Miscellaneous Legal Terms)
It may happen that our platform and/or Services are down, either for planned maintenance or because something goes down with the site. It may happen that one of our instructors is making misleading statements in their course. It may also happen that we encounter security issues. These are just examples. You accept that you will not have any recourse against us in any of these types of cases where things do not work out right. In legal, more complete language, the Services and their content are provided on an “as is” and “as available” basis. We make no representations or warranties about the suitability, reliability, availability, timeliness, security, lack of errors, or accuracy of the Services or their content, and expressly disclaim any warranties or conditions (express or implied), including implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, title, and non-infringement, to the maximum extent allowed by mandatory applicable law. We make no warranty that you will obtain specific results from use of the Services. Your use of the Services (including any content) is entirely at your own risk. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of implied warranties, so some of the above exclusions may not apply to you.
We may decide to cease making available certain features of the Services at any time and for any reason. Under no circumstances will we be held liable for any damages due to such interruptions or lack of availability of such features.
We are not responsible for delay or failure of our performance of any of the Services caused by events beyond our reasonable control, such as e.g. an act of war, hostility, or sabotage; natural disaster and extreme weather events; electrical, internet, or telecommunication outage; or government restrictions.
8.3 Limitation of Liability
There are risks inherent into using our Services, for example, if you enroll in a health and wellness course like yoga, and you injure yourself. You fully accept these risks and you agree that you will have no recourse to seek damages against even if you suffer loss or damage from using our platform and Services. In legal, more complete language, to the extent permitted by law, we (and our group companies, suppliers, partners, and agents) will not be liable for any indirect, incidental, punitive, or consequential damages (including loss of data, revenue, profits, or business opportunities, or personal injury or death), whether arising in contract, warranty, tort, product liability, or otherwise, and even if we’ve been advised of the possibility of damages in advance. Our liability to you under any circumstance is limited to the greater of one hundred EURO (€100) or the amount you have paid us in the twelve (12) months before the event giving rise to your claims. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, so some of the above may not apply to you.
If you behave in a way that gets us in legal trouble, we may exercise legal recourse against you. You agree to indemnify, defend (if we so request), and hold harmless Acadyme from and against any third-party claims, demands, losses, damages, or expenses (including reasonable attorney fees) arising from (a) the content you post or submit, (b) your use of the Services (c) your violation of these Terms, or (d) your violation of any rights of a third party. Your indemnification obligation will survive the termination of these Terms and your use of the Services.
