Participant terms for online programs

Thank you for using the EPP Learning Platform ! 

 These “Terms of Use for participants of online programs”  for participants of online programs”  (hereafter as "Terms") were last updated on September 15 , 2020. 

 EPP’s mission is to support organizations to dramatically improve top line revenues and profitability through personal and organizational Pricing and Revenue Growth Management maturity development.  We consider our EPP platform model the best way to offer valuable best practices to the pricing and revenue management community.  

 These Terms apply to all your activities on the EPP Learning Platform or the mobile applications of it.  If we publish an online course on the EPP learning platform, trainers must agree to the “Trainer Terms for online programs”.  

 We also provide details regarding our processing of personal data for people registering to the online course in our “Privacy & Data Protection Policy”.  

1. Course Enrolment as participant 

When you enrol in a course, we grant you a limited, personal, non-exclusive, non-transferable, and revocable license to view the course via the EPP Learning Platform.  

 Under our Trainer Terms for online courses, when trainers publish a course on the EPP learning platform, they grant EPP to offer a license to the course to subscribers of the course.  

As a participant, when you enrol in a course, you are getting a license from EPP to view the course via the EPP learning platform and EPP is the licensor of record.  

For a good understanding ; courses are licensed, and not sold, to you. This means that this license does not give you any right to resell the course in any manner (including by sharing account information with a purchaser or illegally downloading the course and sharing it on torrent sites). 

In pure legal terms : EPP grants you (as a participant) 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, in accordance with these Terms.  

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 a EPP authorized representative. This also applies to content you can access via any of our APIs. 

 

2. Pricing and payments 

When you make a payment, you agree to use a valid payment method.  

2.1 Pricing 

The prices of courses on EPP are determined by EPP.  We may run promotions for certain courses.  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 also be different when you are logged into your EPP Prime account from the price available to users who aren’t registered or logged in, because some of our promotions are available only to EPP Prime members.

 

2.2 Payments 

You agree to pay the fees for courses that you purchase, and you authorize us to charge your debit or credit card or process other means of payment (such as Boleto, SEPA, direct debit, or mobile wallet) for those fees. EPP 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.  

When you make a purchase, you agree not to use an invalid or unauthorized payment method. If your payment method fails and you still get access to the course you are enrolling in, you agree to pay us the corresponding fees within thirty (30) days of notification from us. We reserve the right to disable access to any course for which we have not received adequate payment. 

3. EPP’s Rights 

All right, title, and interest in and to the EPP learning platform, including our website, our existing or future applications, our APIs, databases, and the content our employees or partners submit or provide (but excluding content provided by trainers and participants) are and will remain the exclusive property of EPP. Our platforms and services are protected by copyright and trademark. Nothing gives you a right to use the EPP name or any of the EPP trademarks, logos, domain names, and other distinctive brand features.  

You may not do any of the following while accessing or using the EPP platform and Services: 

  • access, tamper with, or use non-public areas of the EPP learning platform (including content storage), EPP’s computer systems, or the technical delivery systems of EPP’s service providers.

  • in any way use the EPP learning platform to send altered, deceptive, or false source-identifying information (such as sending email communications falsely appearing as EPP); or interfere with, or disrupt, (or attempt to do so), the access of any user, host, or network, including, without limitation, sending a virus, overloading, flooding, spamming, or mail-bombing the platforms or services, or in any other manner interfering with or creating an undue burden on the EPP services. 

 

4. Binding agreement

You agree that by registering, accessing, or using our EPP Learning Platform, you are agreeing to enter into a legally binding contract with EPP. If you do not agree to these Terms, do not register, access, or otherwise use any of our Services. 

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 doesn’t 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 doesn’t mean we waive our rights generally or in the future. 

 

5. Disclaimers
