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.

We may request some information from you to confirm that you are indeed the owner of your account.

If we discover that you have created an account that violates these rules, we will terminate your account.  

Content Enrollment and Access

When you enroll in a course you get access from us to join classes via the Dev Skill Support Team. Don’t try to transfer or resell your account in any way. We generally grant you as a student for that course.

As a student, when you enroll in a course or other content, whether it’s free or paid content, you are getting a license from Dev Skill to learn & view the content via the Dev Skill platform and Services, and Dev Skill is the licensor of record. Content is licensed, and not sold, to you. This license does not give you any right to resell the content in any manner (including by sharing account information with a purchaser or illegally downloading the content and sharing it on any online or offline platform).

In legal, more complete terms, Dev Skill grants you (as a student) a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable license to access and view the content for which you have paid all required fees, solely for your personal, non-commercial, educational purposes through the Services, in accordance with these Terms and any conditions or restrictions associated with the particular content or feature of our Services. All other uses are expressly prohibited. 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 content unless we give you explicit permission to do so in a written agreement signed by a Dev Skill authorized representative. This also applies to content you can access via any of our APIs.

We generally give a license to our students when they enroll in a course or other content. However, we reserve the right to revoke any license to access and use any content at any point in time in the event where we decide or are obligated to disable access to the content due to legal or policy reasons.

We enable anyone anywhere to create and share educational content (instructors) and to access that educational content to learn (students). We consider our marketplace model the best way to offer valuable educational content to our users. We need rules to keep our platform and services safe for you, us, and our student and instructor community. These Terms apply to all your activities on the Dev Skill website, the Dev Skill mobile applications, our APIs, and other related services.

Payments, Credits, and Refunds

3.1 Pricing

The prices of course on Dev Skill are determined based on the terms of the Instructor Terms and our Promotions Policy. In some instances, the price of content offered on the Dev Skill website may not be exactly the same as the price offered on our mobile or social media platform, due to mobile platform providers’ pricing systems and their policies around implementing sales and promotions.

We occasionally run promotions and sales for our content, during which certain content is available at discounted prices for a set period of time. The price applicable to the content will be the price at the time you complete your purchase of the content. Any price offered for particular content may also be different when you are logged into your account from the price available to users who aren’t registered or logged in, because some of our promotions are available only to new users.

3.2 Payments

You agree to pay the fees for content in which you enroll, and you authorize us to charge your debit or credit card or process other means of payment (such as Bkash, Rocket, Nagad or other mobile financial service in Bangladesh operating under the authority of Bangladesh Bank) for those fees. Dev Skill works with payment service providers to offer you the most convenient payment methods to keep your payment information secure. We may update your payment methods using information provided by our payment service providers.

When you make a purchase, you agree not to use an invalid or unauthorized payment method. If your payment method fails and you still get access to the content you are enrolling in, you agree to pay us the corresponding fees within the deadline of notification from us. We reserve the right to disable access to any content for which we have not received adequate payment.

3.3 Refunds and Refund Credits

If you pay for any course and are unable to continue for any reason then you must inform us before starting that course. You can request to refund your payment to Dev Skill before that time limit otherwise your request will be marked as invalid. No refund is due to you if you request it after the time limit has passed.

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 service providers, the platform from which you get your content (website, mobile), and other factors.

Responsibility of Customer
