Applied Tutoring controls and operates the Site from various locations and makes no representation that this website is appropriate or available for use in all locations. Applied Tutoring services may not be available in your location, and available services may vary among locations. In addition, Applied Tutoring will attempt to deliver all correspondence sent via the Site's messaging system. Applied Tutoring cannot, however, guarantee delivery of all messages.
The site lists tutors who are willing to be engaged by you as independent contractors, or part-time employees. As independent contractors, the listed tutors control the methods, materials and all aspects of the lessons.
New 1-on-1 Standard students are subject to a one-time $60 profile set up fee. This fee may be waived at the discretion of Applied Tutoring only.
All Prepayments for tutoring services will be held as a credit for future tutoring services. Refunds of unused hours can be issued if requested in person, by phone, in writing, or by email within (30) Thirty Days of purchase. After Thirty Days, these hours may be used as a credit towards tutoring services. Tutoring credits expire if unused after (180) One Hundred and Eighty Days.

You may obtain direct access via the Site to certain confidential information of Applied Tutoring and its affiliates, including without limitation technical, contractual, product, program, pricing, marketing and other valuable information that should reasonably be understood as confidential ("Confidential Information"). You must hold Confidential Information in strict confidence. Title to Confidential Information remains with Applied Tutoring and its affiliates.

content submitted to the site
Applied Tutoring does not claim ownership of the Content that you place on the website and shall have no obligation of any kind with respect to such Content. Unless otherwise stated herein, any Content that you provide in connection with this website shall be deemed to be provided on a non-confidential basis. Applied Tutoring shall be free to use or disseminate such Content on an unrestricted basis for any purpose, and you grant Applied Tutoring an irrevocable, worldwide, royalty-free, nonexclusive license to use, reproduce, modify, distribute, transmit, display, perform, adapt, resell and publish such Content (including in digital form). You represent and warrant that you have proper authorization for the worldwide transfer and processing among Applied Tutoring, its affiliates, and third-party providers of any information that you may provide on the Site.
You agree to indemnify and hold Applied Tutoring and its subsidiaries, affiliates, shareholders, officers, directors, agents, licensors, suppliers, alliance members, other partners, employees, and representatives harmless from any claim or demand, including reasonable attorneys' fees, made by any third party due to or arising out of your Content, your use of or connection to the Site (including any use by you on behalf of another party), your violation of the Terms, or your violation of any rights of another.
The Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and Applied Tutoring relating to their subject matter, and cancel and supersede any prior versions of the Terms. You must not assign or otherwise transfer the Terms or any right granted hereunder. You also may be subject to additional terms and conditions that may apply when you use Applied Tutoring or third-party products or services.
You agree that any material breach of the Terms will result in irreparable harm to Applied Tutoring for which damages would be an inadequate remedy and, therefore, in addition to its rights and remedies otherwise available at law, Applied Tutoring will be entitled to equitable relief, including both a preliminary and permanent injunction, if such a breach occurs. You waive any requirement for the posting of a bond or other security if Applied Tutoring seeks such an injunction.
Any express waiver or failure to exercise promptly any right under the Terms will not create a continuing waiver or any expectation of non-enforcement. If any provision of the Terms is held invalid by any law or regulation of any government, or by any court or arbitrator, the parties agree that such provision will be replaced with a new provision that accomplishes the original business purpose, and the other provisions of the Terms will remain in full force and effect.
