Please read these Terms and Policies carefully, and contact us if you have any questions.
Please read these Terms carefully before accessing or participating in any of our Services. Participating institutions, individuals and companies registered to list courses on Parenthexis’ Learning Store (collectively, the Partners) are third party beneficiaries of these Terms and may enforce the same as they apply to them.
The Services enable students and learners (collectively, learners) to connect with Trainers/Facilitators/Instructors (collectively, the Trainers/Facilitators) who provide instruction, tutoring, and learning services, free or for a fee, (the Courses) in our proprietary online learning environment. Learners and Trainers/Facilitators are, collectively, Users. The Services also include, without limitation, participating in group discussion forums known as Parenthexis’ Circles, purchasing and selling Courses in Parenthexis’ Learning Store, creating Courses and supporting materials with our proprietary course-building templates and taking feedback from Users.

In order to fully participate in all Services, you must register for a personal account on the Services (a “User Account”) by providing your first name and last name, a valid email address and a password or alternatively, you can also sign in via your Facebook, Google+ or LinkedIn account for a User Account.
You agree that you will not divulge or share access or information in respect of your User Account with any third party for any reason. Your User Account is non-transferable and no one else but you may access and/or use your User Account. In the event that you allow a third party, including a natural person who is a minor, to access and/or use your User Account (the Unauthorised User), you acknowledge and agree that you shall be fully responsible and liable for all actions of such Unauthorised User, including the consequences of all actions on the part of the Unauthorised User which breach these Terms.
You also acknowledge and agree to that you will create, use, and access only one User Account, and that you will not access the Services using multiple User Accounts.
In setting up your User Account, you may be prompted or required to enter additional information, including but not limited to, your name and location. Additional information may be required to confirm your identity. You represent that all information provided by you is accurate, current and complete and you acknowledge and agree that you will maintain and update your information to keep it accurate, current and complete.

Establishment of Learner and Participating Partner/Institution Relationship
Services may include forums and discussion groups containing the personal opinions and other expressions of the Users who post entries on a wide range of topics. Neither the User Content (as defined below) on the Services, nor any links to other websites, are screened, moderated, approved, reviewed or endorsed by Parenthexis or its Partners. By posting to or viewing such forums or discussion groups, you acknowledge and agree that neither Parenthexis nor any of its Partners are responsible or liable for the content of any postings therein. Parenthexis reserves the right (but is not obliged) to remove any content from such forums in our absolute discretion.
The Services may give you access to links to third-party websites maintained or controlled by entities other than Parenthexis (Third Party Sites). You acknowledge and agree that neither Parenthexis nor its Partners are responsible for nor do they routinely screen, approve, review or endorse any of these Third Party Sites and do not control them in any manner. Accordingly, you acknowledge and agree that Parenthexis and its Partners do not and cannot assume any responsibility or liability associated with your access or use of such Third Party Sites. You further acknowledge and agree that it is your responsibility to take appropriate steps to determine whether accessing a Third Party Site is appropriate or safe, and to protect your personal information, privacy, computer, mobile device or any files therein on such Third Party Sites without any reference whatsoever to Parenthexis and its Partners.
Limitation of Liability
You acknowledge and agree that Parenthexis will not be liable to you for any loss or damages, either actual or consequential, arising out of or relating to these Terms, or to your (or any third party’s) use of or inability to use the Services, or to your placement of content on the Services, or to your reliance upon information obtained from or through the Services. In particular, you acknowledge and agree that Parenthexis will have no liability or any consequential, indirect, punitive, special or incidental damages, whether foreseeable or unforeseeable, including but not limited to, claims for defamation, errors, loss of data or interruption of data and/or Personal Data protection arising out of or relating to these Terms, whether based in contract, tort, statutory or other law, even if Parenthexis or its representatives have been advised of the possibility of such damages. Some jurisdictions do not allow the limitation or exclusion of liability so some of the limitations may not apply to you. In no event shall the total liability of Parenthexis to you for all damages, losses, and causes of action arising from the Terms and/or your use of the Services exceed, in the aggregate, if you have enrolled in any Course, the total amount paid by you for one Course (if you have enrolled in multiple Courses, the total amount paid by you for the Course which costs the least) or 50 Singapore Dollars, whichever is higher or, 50 Singapore Dollars if you have not enrolled in any Course (the Stated Limits). Notwithstanding the foregoing and where applicable, you acknowledge and agree that insofar as such liability for supply of Services may not be excluded, then to the maximum extent permitted by law, such liability is limited, at Parenthexis' exclusive option (the Supply Option), to:
resupply of the Services; or
payment of the cost of having the Services supplied again.
For the avoidance of doubt, Parenthexis' Supply Option may be exercised by Parenthexis as an alternative but not in addition to Stated Limits.
Nothing in this Agreement shall exclude or limit liability for death or personal injury caused by the negligence of you or Parenthexis.
Payment of Courses
If you elect to access or use Services that involve payment of a fee, then you agree to pay and will be responsible for payment of that fee and all prevailing Singapore taxes, including the goods and services tax (where applicable) associated with such access or use. If you provide credit card information to pay for such fees, then you hereby represent and warrant that you are authorised to supply such information and authorise Parenthexis to charge your credit card on a regular basis to pay the fees as they are due. You acknowledge and agree that credit card information provided by you is provided entirely at your own risk and that Parenthexis shall not be responsible or liable to you for any loss or damage you may suffer in respect of providing such information to us. You further acknowledge and agree that you shall, on demand, indemnify us in respect of any losses, claims, actions, proceedings, demands, damages, costs and expenses (including legal costs) and any other liabilities howsoever arising in consequence of us acting in good faith upon receipt and/or in reliance of the information you provide us.
