Teaching or Attending a Tutorial
Your teaching or attendance of a Tutorial is at your sole risk.

You acknowledge and agree that by participating in any Tutorial (either party) you may be exposed to a variety of risks and hazards, which may or may not be foreseen, including (without limitation) personal injury, property damage and death. You are solely responsible for all costs and/or risks associated with your participation in any Tutorial.

You agree and understand and intend that this assumption of risk and release is binding upon you and your heirs, executors, agents, administrators and assigns. Utorial reserves the right to, but is under no obligation, to delete the listing of any Tutorial at any time and for any reason.
Utorial charges a fee of 20% of the tutorial fee.
All tutorial fees are quoted in USD which is translated into the local currency of the person making the booking underneath the quoted USD price for each tutorial. The local currency price of the tutorial is converted from the USD price using the mid-market rate that is updated daily.
The fee for a full tutorial is paid for by the person making the booking at the time of booking the tutorial. Utorial.tv holds the money until the tutorial is delivered and then transfers the tutorial fee (less Utorial.tv 20% commission) to the tutor’s PayPal account 7 days after the tutorial has been delivered (during which time the payer may make a complaint). Any PayPal fees incurred in the transfer of funds from Utorial.tv to the tutor are borne by the tutor.
The party making the booking or a Tutor may cancel a Tutorial up to 48 prior to the start of a Tutorial, in which case a full refund will be issued to the them and the Tutor will not be paid.
If they cancels a Tutorial within 48 hours of the start of a Tutorial, the full cost will be payable to the Tutor, with 20% commission passing to Utorial.
If a Tutor cancels a Tutorial within 48 hours of the start of a Tutorial, the tutorial fee is refunded to the them in full within 24 hours.
In the instance where a tutor does not attend the tutorial, the tutorial fee is returned to the them in full within 24 hours. The tutor’s account is charged a fee of $5 to cover expenses relating to processing and reversing the payment.
In the instance where the booking party does not attend the tutorial, the tutorial fee is paid to the Tutor minus Utorial’s 20% commission.
In the instance where the paying party is not satisfied with a tutorial, they may lodge a complaint within 7 days of the tutorial completion with Utorial. We will investigate the dispute and the outcome determined at utorial.tv absolute discretion. Funds and refunds will be dispersed upon this decision which will be final.

General. Utorial bills you through an online account (your "Billing Account") for use of the Service. You agree to pay Utorial all charges at the prices then in effect for any use of the Service by you or other persons (including your agents) using your Billing Account, and you authorize Utorial to charge your chosen payment provider (your "Payment Method"), such as PayPal, for your use of the Service. You agree to make payment using your selected Payment Method. Utorial reserves the right to correct any errors or mistakes that it makes even if it has already requested or received payment.
Current Information Required. You must promptly notify Utorial if your payment method is cancelled (eg for loss or theft) or if you become aware of a potential breach of security, such as unauthorised disclosure or use of your username or password.
Payment Method. The terms of your payment will be based on your Payment Method and may be determined by agreements between you and the financial institution, credit card issuer or other provider of your chosen Payment Method (the "Payment Method Provider"). If Utorial does not receive payment from your Payment Method Provider, you agree to pay all amounts due on your Billing Account upon demand, or Utorial may suspend or terminate your access to the Service.
Reaffirmation of Authorization. Your non-termination or continued use of the Service reaffirms that Utorial is authorized to charge your Payment Method. Utorial may submit those charges for payment and you will be responsible for such charges. This does not waive Utorial's right to seek payment directly from you. Your charges may be payable in advance, in arrears, per usage, or as otherwise described on the applicable payment screen.
Refunds. In the instances where a user is unhappy with the tutorial that is received, a complaint must be lodged within one week of the tutorial. The disputed tutorial will be investigated by Utorial and a refund will be made should Utorial uphold the complaint at Utorials absolute discretion.
Free Trials and Other Promotions. Any free trial or other promotion, must be used within the specified time of the trial. You must choose to terminate your access to the feature or service before the end of the trial period in order to avoid being charged the applicable fee. If you terminate access prior to the end of the trial period and are inadvertently charged a fee, please contact Utorial to have the charges reversed.
All prices are in USD, local currencies are intended as a guide only.
Utorial attempts to make all prices published through the Service accurate. However, prices in the Service are provided by our Tutors. In the event that we have provided an inaccurate price or incorrect information due to error either by us or by a Tutor, we reserve the right to refuse or cancel purchases made through the system. When a purchase is cancelled due to pricing error, we will provide a refund of the purchase price. Price quotations listed on the Site or elsewhere in the Service are subject to change without notice prior to purchase. Prices listed on the site are per person, unless otherwise noted.
These Terms and any action related thereto will be governed by the laws of the New South Wales, Australia without regard to or application of its conflict of law provisions or your state or country of residence. Unless submitted to arbitration as set forth in the following paragraph, all claims, legal proceedings or litigation arising in connection with the Service will be brought solely in New South Wales, Australia, and you consent to the jurisdiction of and venue in such courts and waive any objection as to inconvenient forum.
For any claim (excluding claims for injunctive or other equitable relief) under these Terms where the total amount of the award sought is less than AUD $10,000, the party requesting relief may elect to resolve the dispute through binding non-appearance-based arbitration. The party electing such arbitration shall initiate the arbitration through an established alternative dispute resolution (“ADR”) provider mutually agreed upon by the parties. The ADR provider and the parties must comply with the following rules: a) the arbitration shall be conducted by telephone, online and/or be solely based on written submissions, as selected by the party initiating the arbitration; b) the arbitration shall not involve any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise mutually agreed by the parties; and c) any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
These Terms are the entire and exclusive agreement between Utorial and you regarding the Service (excluding any services for which you have a separate agreement with Utorial that is explicitly in addition or in place of these Terms), and these Terms supersede and replace any prior agreements between Utorial and you regarding the Service.
The failure of Utorial to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not be deemed a waiver of such right or provision. In the event that any provision of these Terms is held to be invalid or unenforceable, the remaining provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect.
We may revise these Terms from time to time. The most current version will always be on this page (or such other page as the Service may indicate). If the revision, in our sole discretion, is material we will notify you via posting to our website or e-mail to the email associated with your account. By continuing to access or use the Service after those revisions
