We at PocketEdu need rules to keep our platform and services safe for you and for us. These Terms apply to all your activities on the PocketEdu website and our PocketEdu mobile applications and other related services (“Services”).
You need an account for most activities on our platform. Keep your password somewhere safe, because you’re responsible for all activity associated with your account. If you suspect someone else is using your account, let us know by contacting our team. You must have reached the age of consent for online services in your country to use PocketEdu’s applications.
You need an account for most activities on our platform, including to purchase and enroll in all learning activities. 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. 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 without their permission. 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.
If you share your account login credential with someone else, you are responsible for what happens with your account and PocketEdu will not intervene in disputes between subjects who have shared account login credentials. You must notify us immediately upon learning that someone else may be using your account without your permission (or if you suspect any other breach of security) by contacting our team. We may request some information from you to confirm that you are indeed the owner of your account.
Users must be at least 18 years of age to create an account on PocketEdu’s Service’s and use the contents.

If we discover that you have created an account and you are younger than the required age for consent to use online services (for example, 13 in the US), we will terminate your account. You can terminate your account at any time.
2. Enrollment and Lifetime Access
