You need to register an account for most activities on our platform, including to purchase and enroll in a course or to submit a course for publication. 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. You may not transfer your account to someone else or use someone else’s account.
If you contact us to request access to an account, we will not grant you such access unless you can provide us with the information that we need to prove you are the owner of that account.
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 Support Team. We may request some information from you to confirm that you are indeed the owner of your account.
When you enroll in a course, you get access from us to view it via our web portal and no other use. Don’t try to transfer or resell courses in any way. We grant you a lifetime access, except when we must disable the course because of legal or policy reasons.
You may not reproduce, redistribute, transmit, assign, sell, broadcast, rent, share, lend, modify, adapt, edit, create derivative works of, sublicense, or otherwise transfer or use any course unless we give you explicit permission to do so in a written agreement signed by a Sikumna authorized representative.
Courses are licensed, and not sold, to you. This does not give you any right to resell the course in any manner (including by sharing account information with a purchaser or illegally downloading the course and sharing it on torrent sites).
We generally give a lifetime access to our students when they enroll in a course. However, we reserve the right to revoke any access and use of courses at any point in time in the event where we decide or are obligated to disable access to a course due to legal or policy reasons.
Instructors may not grant licenses to their courses to students directly, and any such direct license shall be null and void and a violation of these Terms.
When a student enrolls in a course, instructors are responsible to consult and guide students with any issues or roadblocks that may arise during the course.
You agree to pay the fees for courses that you purchase, and you authorize us to charge using any of the payment platforms mentioned in the website. (Payment can be made online through use of the payment services like eSewa, Khalti, online banking or Fonepay)
You agree not to use an invalid, illegal or unauthorized payment method while making payment.
If your payment method fails and you still get access to the course you are enrolling in, you agree to pay us the corresponding fees within thirty (30) days of notification from us.
We reserve the right to disable access to any course for which we have not received adequate payment.
If the course you purchased is not what you were expecting, you can request, within 30 days of your purchase of the course, that Sikumna apply a refund to your account.
We reserve the right to apply your refund as a refund credit or a refund to your original payment method, at our discretion, depending on capabilities of our payment processing partners, the platform from which you purchased your course.
No refund is due to you if you request it after the 30-day guarantee time limit has passed.
However, if a course you previously purchased is disabled for legal or policy reasons, you are entitled to a refund beyond this 30-day limit. Sikumna also reserves the right to refund students beyond the 30-day limit in cases of suspected or confirmed account fraud.
Instructors agree that students have the right to receive these refunds.
At our discretion, if we believe you are abusing our refund policy, such as if you’ve consumed a significant portion of a course that you want to refund or if you’ve previously refunded a course, we reserve the right to deny your refund, ban your account, and/or restrict all future use of the Services.
If we ban your account or disable your access to a course due to your violation of these Terms, you will not be eligible to receive a refund.
