Hello, StudyVen’t mission is to improve students’ skills in scientific working. Note that your use of our service is subject to our here defined terms. When you use our service, you agree to these terms and acknowledge that you understand and accept them entirely. If you do not agree to all of the following, please do not use or access our service.
Please be advised: these Terms contain provisions that govern how claims that you and StudyVent have against each other can be brought (see below). These provisions will, with limited exception, require that you submit claims you have against StudyVent to binding and final arbitration on an individual basis, not as a plaintiff or class member in any class, group or representative action or proceeding.
Over time our terms may change with the Services. We reserve the right to change the Terms at any time. If you don’t agree with the new Terms, you are free to reject them; however, that means you will no longer be able to use the Services. If you use the Services in any way after a change to the Terms is effective, that means you agree to all of the changes. Registered users will be notified of any changes at least six weeks in advance by e-mail to the e-mail address stored in their account.
Except for changes by us as described here, no other amendment or modification of these Terms will be effective unless in writing and signed by both you and us.
What about my privacy?
StudyVent takes the privacy of its users very seriously. The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”) requires that online service providers obtain parental consent before they knowingly collect personally identifiable information online from children who are under 13. We do not knowingly collect or solicit personally identifiable information from children under 13; if you are a child under 13, please do not attempt to register for the Services or send any personal information about yourself to us. If we learn we have collected personal information from a child under 13, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that a child under 13 may have provided us personal information, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Basics of Using
What are the basics of using studyvent.com (applicable to all users).
Registration and Security
To use some aspects of the Services, you may be required to sign up for an account and select a password (“StudyVent User ID”). If you are accessing the Services through a third party site or service (such as “Facebook” or “Google”), we may require that your StudyVent User ID be the same as your user name for such third party site or service. You promise to provide us with accurate, complete, and updated registration information about yourself. You may not select as your StudyVent User ID a name that you don’t have the right to use, or another person’s name with the intent to impersonate that person. You may not transfer your account to anyone else without our prior written permission. You may only create one account with us. If your account has been suspended or terminated, you may not open another account with us. If you access the Service through a third party site or service, you will provide your third party account credentials to us, and you are consenting to have the information in those accounts transmitted into your StudyVent account, and you agree that you shall only use accounts owned by you, and not by any other person or entity.
You represent and warrant that you are of legal age to form a binding contract (or if not, you’ve received your parent’s or guardian’s permission to use the Services and gotten your parent or guardian to agree to these Terms on your behalf). If you’re agreeing to these Terms on behalf of an organization or entity, you represent and warrant that you are authorized to agree to these Terms on that organization or entity’s behalf and bind them to these Terms, in which case the references to “you” or “your” or the like other than in this sentence, refer to such organization or entity. If you are a parent, guardian, or other person who enables a child under the age of 13 to access the Services, you agree to stand in the shoes of such child for the purposes of making us whole in case of damages or indemnification that could properly lie against a child, if not for his or her age. The Services are intended for use by you only if you are 13 years of age or older.
You will only use the Services for your own personal use (and not on behalf of or for the benefit of any third party), and only in a manner that complies with all laws, rules (government, school, or otherwise), and regulations (collectively “Applicable Laws”) that apply to you.

Any Content you access through the Services is licensed, not sold to you, regardless of the use of the term “purchase” herein. You are prohibited from soliciting other users of the Services (hereafter “Users”) to contact you outside the Services, including Tutors, for any purpose. “Content” means the materials displayed or performed or available on or through the Services, including, but not limited to, text, graphics, data, articles, photos, images, illustrations, and so forth. “Submissions” means any Content you post, upload, share, store, or otherwise provide through the Services.
If your use of the Services is prohibited by Applicable Laws, then you aren’t authorized to use the Services. We can’t and won’t be responsible for your using the Services in a way that breaks any Applicable Laws.

Who is responsible for what I see and do on the Services?
Any Content publicly posted or privately transmitted through the Services is the sole responsibility of the person from whom such content originated, and you access all such information and content at your own risk, and we aren’t liable for any errors or omissions in that information or content or for any damages or loss you might suffer in connection with it. We cannot control and have no duty to take any action regarding how you may interpret and use the Content or what actions you may take as a result of having been exposed to the Content, and you hereby release us from all liability for you having acquired or not acquired Content through the Services.

Other Important Terms
Will StudyVent ever change the Services?
We’re always trying to improve the Services, so they may change over time. We may suspend or discontinue any part of the Services, or we may introduce new features or impose limits on certain features or restrict access to parts or all of the Services.
