This means that you must keep your password strictly confidential. You may not transfer your account to anyone else or use a third-party account without his permission.

If you notice fraudulent use of your account, you agree to notify us immediately by contacting our support team.

In order to create an account on the Site and use the Content, you must be at least 18 years old.

Invention Academy grants you a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable license to access the courses and course content for which you have paid all required fees, solely for personal, educational and non-commercial purposes through the Services, in accordance with these Terms of Use and any conditions or restrictions related to a specific course or feature of our Services. Any other use is strictly prohibited. You may not reproduce, redistribute, transmit, assign, sell, distribute, rent, share, loan, modify, adapt, publish, create derivative works, sublicense, transfer or use these resources without our written authorization and signed by an authorized representative of Invention Academy.

 For the user registered in a course, we grant an unlimited access license to that course. However, we reserve the right, at any time, to revoke any license to access and use a course, if we decide or are required to disable access to that course due to a conflict with legislation or our policies. Unlimited access does not apply to additional features and services associated with a course.  

3. Payments

When you agree to pay the fees due for the courses you purchase, you authorize us to debit your credit card or make payment by any other means of payment. Invention Academy works with third-party payment processing partners to offer you the most convenient payment methods in your country and to ensure the security of your payment information. For any purchase, you agree not to use an invalid or unauthorized payment method. If the payment process fails, but you still have access to the course you have registered for, you agree to pay us the amount due within 30 days after our notification. We reserve the right to disable access to any course for which we have not received the appropriate payment.  

4. Pricing

We regularly launch promotions for our courses, and some of them are offered at reduced prices only for a fixed period of time. The applicable price for a course is the one indicated at the time you pay for your purchase. Any price displayed for a specific course may also differ depending on whether users are logged into their account or not registered or not logged in, as some of our promotions are only available to new users.  

5. Refund

If you are not satisfied with the course you have purchased, you can request a refund within 30 days of your purchase. We reserve the right to apply a refund at our discretion, as far as is possible for our payment processing partners. No refund is due if you request it more than 30 days after your purchase.

 If we believe in our discretion that you are misusing our refund policy, we reserve the right to block your account and limit any future use of the Services. If we block your account or remove your access to a course due to a violation of these conditions, you will not be entitled to any refund of any kind.
