1. STANDARD TERMS AND CONDITIONS
These are the standard terms and conditions for Coding & Robotics online courses and apply to all subscription types undertaken by The Very Little Agency (from now on 'TVLA') for its clients via the website https://galatiq.app.
2. OUR FEES
All subscription plans will be explained throughout the website and each of the products advertised will contain its features and prices with VAT included. In case of contradiction anywhere across the website, users should contact us to confirm the valid price or rate.
3. MONTHLY SUBSCRIPTIONS:
In case the client has bought an ongoing subscription at galactiq, the house rules are: + Each monthly charge will be paid in advance by the client.
+ In case the payment does not go through, our website automatically will issue a reminder, in case the outstanding amount is not paid on time, your account will be temporarily disabled and will only become active again when the pending amount is fully paid.
+ If the service gets interrupted, the client won't be able to use any of the learning features.
The galactIQ Academy subscription (online lessons with one of our teachers) has the following characteristics:
+ Each lesson will be conducted by one of our specialists.
+ Our organisation uses zoom.us to conduct each lesson. Each parent(los dos padres???) will receive a confirmation email including a zoom link students will use to connect each time.
+ Our staff will explain the features of this communication tool, but will not fix problems with computers, connection or any other technical issue. We recommend our customers to test their computer before activating the connection to each class.
+ In case our teacher would be late a maximum of 5 minutes to a session, the lesson would have to be extended in equal proportion.
In case the teacher should be late more than 5 minutes, the lesson will be extended in equal proportion (to the tardiness).
+ In case our teacher cannot connect to the meeting caused by a technical problem, galactIQ will proceed to organise a 'catch-up lesson' to compensate the class for this.
+ The lessons get interrupted during official school holidays. galactIQ will not catch up these lessons unless we didn't deliver more than 3.8 lessons per month in average (considering the course from September to June)
In general galactIQ will try to provide catch up lessons to students that could not attend one or more lesson for personal reasons: we will try to add this student to any of our existing groups where there is availability and where the group's level matches that of the student that missed lessons but we can not guarantee these replacement classes and we will not have any obligation to refund partially or totally any monthly or yearly fees.
In case our lessons are organised at a school or a building managed by other institution (a school, high school, other) with which we have a formal agreement and a class has been cancelled there for causes external to galactIQ, we will do our best to organise catch up lessons as soon as possible. In case these replacement lessons (new dates and times provided) are not fitting some students, galactIQ will not make partial refunds of the monthly fee.
Users of legal age can sign up minors under their own responsibility, the act of subscribing a minor to galactIQ's website implies that the subscriber is the parent, legal tutor, teacher or school responsible. The user needs to have permission of his or her parents or guardian to provide the personal data to The Very Little Agency / galactIQ. Users can request The Very Little Agency / galactIQ to modify the minor's personal data at any time by sending a request email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
5. ONE TIME SUBSCRIPTIONS
