3.2. If you are a Student (or at any point become a Student) clause 9 shall also apply to you.
3.3. If you are a Tutor (or at any point become a Tutor) clause 10 shall also apply to you.
Procedure and terms of access to and registration for the Platform
4.1. The cost of equipment (such as a computer, software, telecommunications or other technological appliance) enabling access to the Platform as well as the communication costs incurred by their use are solely borne by the Member. Registration is free. It provides access to the Platform which enables for Members to arrange Tuition Session in addition to the following features:
4.2. To register and become a Member, anyone interested in Tutor Sessions must be at least 18 years of age, meet the requirements for registration or access to the concerned section, be legally able to contract, not be under guardianship or curatorship, have read and accepted this Agreement with the other identified policies and have completed all mandatory fields listed on the registration form, including the fields for the following personal information:
4.3. The Member may then add to its profile by providing information as to other relevant information and any other personal information the Member wishes to publicly disclose to other Members through the Platform.
4.4. The Member warrants that the information it communicates is accurate. The Member agrees to immediately inform Teachercentric of any changes to the data provided at the time of registration and, if necessary, to make these changes on its personal space or profile on the Platform. When the terms and conditions for registration are met, each Member has a username (name indicated by the Member) and a password, which are strictly personal and confidential and which must not be communicated or shared by the Member with third parties.
4.5. Except in the event of Teachercentric’s own wrongdoing or technical failure of the Platform, the Member will be responsible for the use of its username and password or other identifiers by third parties or actions or statements made through the Member’s personal account, whether fraudulent or not, and will indemnify and hold Teachercentric harmless against any claims in this respect. Furthermore, Teachercentric is not required and does not have the technical means to ensure the identity of the persons registering for its Services. If a Member has reason to believe that a person is using its username and password or account, that Member must immediately inform Teachercentric.
4.7. Teachercentric cannot be held liable for the accuracy or inaccuracy of the information and content provided by other Members, visitors to the Platform and/or the Member itself (and the consequences of reliance on any such information). Similarly, Teachercentric cannot be held liable for any content disseminated by a Member that may potentially constitute a breach of the rights of one or more of the other Members or third parties, where a member of Teachercentric can demonstrate that it: (i) was not informed by a Member or third party, or about the content or the dissemination, (ii) did not have actual or prior knowledge of the same or (iii) did not commit a breach in the performance of any of its contractual obligations which led to such content being disseminated.
4.8. Teachercentric may only be held liable by a Member if and to the extent there is proof of a breach having been committed by Teachercentric or one of its service providers involved in the performance of Teachercentric’s contractual obligations, and this breach has caused the Member direct damage. Where appropriate, it will be Teachercentric’s responsibility to demonstrate that it has not committed any breaches in the performance of its contractual obligations. Teachercentric may not be held liable for any direct or indirect damage incurred by the Member in the event the Member causes the damage or the damage results from an event of force majeure.
4.9. The quality of the Platform and Tutor Sessions demanded by both Teachercentric and its Members requires that Members conduct themselves ethically, and behave with respect for the rights of third parties, and the respect for the laws and regulations in force. To meet this demand for quality, individual responsibility and ethics, Teachercentric requests any Member to report any data (photography, text, video), behaviours or comments made by another Member that appear to be in violation of the laws and regulations in force, concerning the purpose of the Platform, third-party rights or public morals.
4.10. As a result, Members acknowledge and accept that the data they provide, as well as their behaviour or comments made through the Services, may be reported by other Members and are subject to acts of moderation and/or oversight by Teachercentric on the basis of objective assessment criteria. In the event that Teachercentric’s investigation of a report reveals that a Member violated the laws and regulations in force or its contractual obligations, the provisions of this agreement, in particular, clause 14 entitled “Termination”, may be applied. Depending on the Members’ behaviour or the comments made by Members, the monitoring team may decide to block any new registration by a Member that has been the subject of a complaint.
4.11. In the event the Teachercentric is held liable on the basis of a Member’s breach of its legal obligations or those under this 4greement, said Member agrees to indemnify and hold Teachercentric harmless against any orders issued against it resulting from the Member’s breach of its obligations.
5.1. Once registered the Member will have access to the Platform.
5.2. The Member is aware and confirms that their Member Profile is to be visible to other Members and that other Members will be able to contact them.

6.1. The Platform, amongst other things, enables Members to interact with each other in connection with the purchase, booking and provision of Tuition Sessions.

7.1. The booking process is set out here.

9.7. Although one-to-one tuition has been shown to improve understanding and can increase a Student’s grades, Teachercentric does not warrant or guarantee that the Student will improve their understanding or grades.
9.8. Whilst Teachercentric keeps a record of the information provided to it by Tutors, it cannot confirm or check all such information. For this reason, Teachercentric cannot guarantee that the information submitted by the Tutor is accurate and Teachercentric shall not be responsible for any failure of the Tutor to provide it with satisfactory evidence to support the statements on the Tutor's Teachercentric profile.
