II Member Agreement

This Member Agreement contains additional Terms of Usage applicable between Us and the Member and governs the use of the services offered to Members at Our Sites.

1. Who is a Member?

Anybody who registers at one of Our Sites (e.g. Limu.com or bLimu.com) is considered to be a Member. Every Member may appear as a Provider and/or as a Learner. For further Terms of Usage for Providers refer to the Our "Provider Agreement" below.

2. We Connect Learners and Providers

Our service enables Providers to offer Knowledge Assets and Learners to book and take such Knowledge Assets online. We do not take part in the interaction between Learners and Providers except to collect payment on behalf of the Providers as well as providing services enabling the Provider and Learner to contact each other and interact between them. We do not have control over the quality, timing or legality of services actually delivered by the Providers. Members agree not to hold Us (or Our agents or employees) liable for any advice or services delivered which originated through Our Sites.

Members also agree that We shall have the right to modify, amend and change information provided and entered by Members as part of using Our service, so as to allow Us to correct spelling mistakes and/or improve the readability of language used.

3. Eligibility

Our services are available only to individuals, groups of individuals or other legal entities who can form legally binding contracts. Our services are also available to minors, provided that prior parental consent as required by the rules and regulations applicable in the respective country of citizenship of such minors is obtained by them and provided that such parent or guardian shall be legally liable for any and all obligations incurred by the minor as a result of using Our Sites. In the case of a Member being a minor, parents or guardians of that minor should always supervise his/her Usage of Our Sites. If You are a minor and your parent or guardian is not prepared to undertake legal liability for any and all obligations incurred by You as a result of using Our Sites, then You are prohibited from accessing or using Our Sites and You may not register as a Member. You agree to supervise and be held responsible for all Usage by third parties of Our Sites under Your name or account. This includes individuals or entities that will make use of any of Our Sites functionality as part of your general Provider or Learner Usage of the site, having been granted access to such functionality through Your Usage of Our Site.

The information contained in Our Sites is not intended for distribution to, or use by, any person or entity in any jurisdiction or country where such distribution or use would be contrary to law, regulation, treaty or administrative act, or which would subject Us to any additional registration or other requirement, or any obligation other than those set out in these Terms of Usage, within such jurisdiction or country.

If You reside in a country or jurisdiction in which any law, regulation, treaty or administrative act prohibits You from entering into trade relations with the United Kingdom or its citizens, or which prohibits You from receiving or using the information contained in Our Sites, or which would subject Us to any additional registration or other requirement, or any obligation other than those set out in these Terms of Usage, within such jurisdiction or country, then You may not use Our Sites and you may not register as a Member. All Members agree to abide by the Terms of Usage governing Our Sites and services in order to retain their membership.

4. Feedback and Rating

Feedback and ratings are a good way to regulate the quality of the services provided by a Provider and the relationship between Learners and Providers. At completion of all Knowledge Asset Sessions between a Provider and a Learner, the Learner is prompted to complete a feedback form and rate the Provider's overall performance as well as the quality of the Knowledge Asset attended. Members agree to provide this feedback and ratings in a fair manner. Members also consent to have such feedback given by them or provided about them displayed publicly to other users of Our Sites.

5. Transaction, Billing and Payment Policy

Once the Learner and the Provider agree on the terms and payment method for purchasing a Knowledge Asset, there is an implicit contract binding them. The Provider will be bound to give the purchased Knowledge Asset on the terms so agreed. Provider and Learner can agree to use one of the three following times upon which payment can be made:

(i) payment at the time of booking confirmation (Learner pays upon confirming his booking of a Knowledge Asset),

(ii) payment if Learner is satisfied with the Knowledge Asset (Provider will prompt the Learner for payment at any time during or after completion of the Knowledge Asset, after which the Learner shall pay for the Knowledge Asset, if reasonably satisfied with the Knowledge Asset), and

(i) payment at delivery (at the time the Knowledge Asset has been completed the Learner is prompted to pay immediately upon completion of a Knowledge Asset).

A group user Provider, in addition to the timing of the payment, may choose to use one of the following methods of payment:

(a) credit card - the Provider elects and authorises Us to collect payment on his/her behalf from the Learner, and We will charge the Learner's credit card (defined hereafter as any credit or debit cards used to make payment on Our Sites) according to the fee agreed between the Learner and the Provider and according to the payment time agreed, and

(b) invoicing - the Provider has elected to invoice the Learner directly where We will not collect such payment and the Provider will independently collect payment according to the payment time agreed with the Learner.

In the case of credit card payments, the Learner authorises Us to verify his/her available credit on his/her credit card, at the time of payment and when entering his/her credit card details.

In the case where the Provider has elected to invoice the Learner directly the Provider will generate an invoice at the time of payment agreed with the Leaner and We will send this invoice to the Learner. The invoice will contain the details relating to how the Provider wishes to receive payment, such details having being provided by the Provider. The Learner agrees to pay the agreed fee to the Provider in the manner as set out by the Provider in the invoice.

If "payment at booking" was agreed between Learner and Provider, We will prompt the Learner to enter his/her credit card details at booking if he/she has chosen to pay by credit card (Limu points are an alternative way of paying for Knowledge Asset or other services on Our Sites and can be purchased in bulk by credit card after which they will be available to pay for Knowledge Asset or other services on Our Sites) or the Provider will generate an invoice that We will send to the Learner if he/she has elected to invoice the Learner directly. Should this booking be for a Knowledge Asset where the Provider will still have to confirm that such Knowledge Asset will take place, the Learner's credit card will only be charged once the Provider will have confirmed the Knowledge Asset.

If "payment at delivery" was agreed between Learner and Provider, the Provider will prompt the Learner to make payment following completion of a Knowledge Asset and the Learner will then be able to enter his/her credit card details if he/she has chosen to pay by credit card (Limu points are an alternative way of paying for Knowledge Asset or other services on Our Sites and can be purchased in bulk by credit card after which they will be available to pay for Knowledge Asset or other services on Our Sites). If the Provider has elected to invoice the Learner directly he/she will generate an invoice that We will send to the Learner following completion of a Knowledge Asset.

If the Provider and Learner have agreed to use the "Learner pays if satisfied with Knowledge Asset" method, the Learner will be able to commence the Knowledge Asset without payments. The Provider can, following the start of the Knowledge Asset, at any time prompt the Learner for payment of the agreed amount. The Learner will then be prompted to rate the Knowledge Asset up to this time and, if a feedback rating above the lowest grade possible is given by the Learner, the Learner will have to pay for the Knowledge Asset. If the Provider has chosen to receive credit card payments the Learner will be prompted to enter his/her credit card details and pay for the Knowledge Asset. If the Provider has elected to invoice the Learner directly the Provider will generate an invoice that We will send to the Learner. The Learner will not be required to pay for this Knowledge Asset if he/she in good faith assigns the Provider and the Knowledge Asset a feedback rating at the lowest grade possible and provides a reasoned commentary with it. By accepting this Member Agreement, the Learner commits to perform his feedback fairly. Please also refer to the feedback section.

The Learner authorises Us to charge the Learner's credit card with the amount of the agreed charge for each Knowledge Asset booked by the Learner, such charge to be made upon confirmation of the Knowledge Asset by the Learner if the "payment at booking" method has been agreed, or following completion of a Knowledge Asset if the "pay at delivery" method has been agreed. If the "Learner pays if satisfied with Knowledge Asset" method has been agreed, the Learner authorises Us to charge the Learner's credit card with the amount of the agreed charge for the Knowledge Asset booked by the Learner at such time when the Learner has assigned the Provider and the Knowledge Asset a feedback rating above the lowest grade possible and has provided his/her credit card, unless the Learner has rated the Provider in good faith at the lowest grade possible.

The Learner shall not, for any reason whatsoever, be entitled to cancel a Knowledge Asset, withdraw authorisation to charge his/her credit card for payment for a Knowledge Asset or refuse for any reason to make payment for a Knowledge Asset once the terms and payment method of that Knowledge Asset have been agreed by the Learner and the Provider.

In agreeing to the one or the other payment method, Members agree that they fully and without recourse to any other Member involved in the booking accept the following:

  • in choosing or agreeing to use the "payment at booking", the Learner understands and fully accepts the risk that the Provider will be unable or simply unwilling to fulfil part or all of the Knowledge Asset. Under no circumstance will the Learner reclaim or try to reclaim his/her payment from the Provider or Us. The Learner may notify Us in the case he/she is of the opinion that the Provider has in part or entirely failed to honour his/her agreement in providing such Knowledge Asset, in which case We, at Our sole discretion, will review this case and consider suspension of the Provider if regarded appropriate. In such event, We shall not be obliged to inform the Learner of the reason for the Provider's suspension.

  • in choosing or agreeing to use the "pay at delivery" method, the Provider understands and fully accepts the risk that the Learner may fail to make payment to the Provider for the Knowledge Asset when prompted for payment following the completion of the Knowledge Asset. Under such circumstances the Provider agrees not to claim or try to claim his payment from Us. Both Learner and Provider agree that they will be entirely and completely responsible to settle any disputes they might have between themselves, and will fully accept that We are not responsible for settling any disputes related to the service received or not received, or the payment due. We will from time to time monitor a random selection of Providers' and Learners' behaviour, ratings and comments and We retain the right to suspend the membership of any Member not adhering to the policies of Our Sites or these Terms of Usage.

  • in choosing or agreeing to use the "Learner pays if satisfied with Knowledge Asset" method, the Provider understands and fully accepts the risk that the Learner may assign the lowest possible rating to the Provider and the Knowledge Asset when prompted for payment and as such not proceed to pay for the Knowledge Asset. Under such circumstances the Provider agrees not to claim or try to claim his payment from the Learner or Us. Should a dispute arise nonetheless, both Learner and Provider agree that they will be entirely and completely responsible to settle any disputes they might have between themselves, and will fully accept that We are not responsible for settling any disputes related to the service received or not received, or the payment due. We will from time to time monitor a random selection of Providers' and Learners' behaviour, ratings and comments and We retain the right to suspend the membership of any Member not adhering to the policies of Our Sites or these Terms of Usage.

7. Certification

We offer a certification service to Providers, by which We aknowledge to have received certain information allowing Us to make an assessment on the Provider's ability to provide Knowledge Assets in a particular subject and/or the Provider's ability to provide such Knowledge Asset online on Our Sites.

9. Limitation of Liability and Policy of Privacy

III Provider Agreement

This "Provider Agreement" contains the specific Terms of Usage applicable to any Member of Limu offering one or several Knowledge Assets on Our Sites to other Members of Limu, and using Our Sites to register such Knowledge Assets .

1. Who is a Provider?

At Limu we define a Member as being also a Provider, if such Member has has registered one or more Knowledge Assets on Our Sites.

2. Providers' obligations

A Provider is required to abide by the following obligations:

a) The Provider agrees to provide Us with true, accurate and complete information on registration and to amend that information, as the need arises to maintain its truthfulness and completeness. We may at Our sole discretion terminate this Provider Agreement if it appears to Us that any information provided to Us by the Provider is untrue or inaccurate. Any liabilities arising from such termination will exclusively be carried by the Provider.

b) The Provider agrees that he/she will grant the Learners he/she has entered a transaction with the right to access and use for private usage (unless granted for explicit commercial usage by the Provider) the documents and materials made available during the Knowledge Asset. This usage right is granted in perpetuity and at no extra cost to the Learner other than the cost of the Knowledge Asset itself. Providers have the right to amend or change any of the content they have made available on Our Sites as part of a Knowledge Asset they offer, but once a Knowledge Asset has been completed, all documents that are contained in the Knowledge Asset Library will remain accessible for Learners that booked and attended such Knowledge Asset.

c) The Provider grants Us a non-exclusive right to store and use information under (b) above on our servers and to use this information for the purpose of (i) advertising the Provider's Knowledge Assets, (ii) advertising any of Our services, (iii) making such information available to the Provider's Learners in various formats, (iv) using such information as part of other services on Our Sites, and (iv) for any other commercial usage or purpose reasonably required by Us.

d) The Provider undertakes not to fulfil any transaction off-line that has been originated on Our Sites. In any case, were this to happen, the Provider would disclose the information to Us diligently and pay Us the transaction fees otherwise payable online, except where such Provider has been explicitly allowed by Us to invoice Learners for Knowledge Assets provided to them in accordance with these Terms of Usage.

e) The Provider agrees not to use Our Sites in an unlawful or inappropriate manner. This includes, but is not limited to, abiding by the applicable law, not sharing any improper information with another Member, or information that is not relevant to the Knowledge Assets discussed and not posting any materials or documents which may be deemed to be defamatory or libellous. The Provider recognises and agrees to abide by the fact that he/she must apply the utmost diligence and care in only offering content to his Learner(s) that is legal under the applicable law of the Learner(s).

f) The Provider agrees that he/she will not post anything on Our Sites which infringes any third party's intellectual property rights (including, without limitation, all copyright).

3. Amendment of the Provider's profile

We have the right to amend as We see it fit the Provider's profile, without asking him/her for the right to do so.

4. The Transaction with the Learner

The Provider agrees to abide by the terms of his/her agreement with the Learner, whether it relates to the Knowledge Assets, the content, the quality, the level and the payment details.

5. Certification

We offer a certification service to Providers, by which We aknowledge to have received certain information allowing Us to make an assessment on the Provider's ability to provide Knowledge Assets in a particular subject and/or the Provider's ability to provide such Knowledge Asset online on Our Sites. We reserve the right to decline and not grant certified status to any Provider at our sole discretion and without any need to justify such decision to the Provider. We also expressly reserve the right to strip a Provider of his/her certification status at any time without any need to justify such decision.

In addition, by granting a certification status to a Provider, Limu makes no warranty or representation in connection with the ability of that Provider to provide or the Provider's knowledge or command of the particular Knowledge Asset's subject.

6. Payment and billing

The Provider agrees that We shall receive on his/her behalf any payment due by a Learner to the Provider, except where a Provider has elected to invoice Learners directly for Knowledge Assets provided to them in accordance with these Terms of Usage ("Invoiced Knowledge Assets"). In the former case, once such Learner has taken appropriate steps to pay any amount owed for a particular Knowledge Asset ("Credit Card Knowledge Asset Fee") and such Credit Card Knowledge Asset Fee is received by Us, Limu will deduct its transaction fee (defined as the "Credit Card Transaction Fee").

Where a group user Provider has elected to invoice the Learner directly for amounts payable by the Learner for a Knowledge Asset("Invoiced Knowledge Asset Fee"), Limu will charge the Provider a transaction fee ("Invoiced Transaction Fee") on Invoiced Knowledge Asset Fees that Accrue to the Provider. We define "Accrue" as the moment upon which Provider and Learner agree that the Provider will deliver a Knowledge Asset to the Learner.

Such Transaction Fee (either Credit Card or Invoiced Transaction Fee) is calculated on the basis of a percentage of the relevant Knowledge Asset Fee based on the accumulated Knowledge Asset Fees (both Credit Card Knowledge Asset Fees and Invoiced Knowledge Asset Fees) related to that Provider at the date at which such Knoweldge Asset Fee is received by Us (in the case of Credit Card Transaction fees) or Accrued (in the case of Invoiced Transaction Fees) in that calendar month according to the sliding scale set out below, except that Invoiced Transaction Fees are 2 percentage points lower than the percentages stipulated in the table below:

Total Knowledge Asset Fees accrued per month: Transaction Fee applicable to such fees
US$0-US$249 20%
US$250-US$999 12.5%
US$1,000-US$4,999 10%
US$5,000-US$19,999 7.5%
more than US$20,000 5%

There is a minimum Credit Card Transaction Fee of US$ 1 (one) of the total Credit Card Knowledge Asset Fee paid by the Learner for each Knowledge Asset.

There is a minimum Invoiced Transaction Fee of US$ 1 (one) of the total Invoiced Knowledge Asset Fee Accrued for each Knowledge Asset.

In the case of Invoiced Knowledge Asset Fees We will invoice the Provider for Limu's Invoiced Transaction Fee. Invoiced Transaction fees will be billed monthly at the end of each calendar month and are payable in full thirty (days) after the date of the invoice.

In the case of Credit Card Knowledge Asset Fees the Credit Card Knowledge Asset Fee paid by the Learner minus the Credit Card Transaction Fee will then credited by Us to the Provider, and appear on the Provider's account balance. However, only once a Knowledge Asset has been completed and archived by the Provider, and following a certain amount of days, currently set at 15 (fifteen) days, will the Provider be able to access such amounts ("Available Account Balance"), requesting either payment by cheque (see further below) or exchange of all or part of his/her balance into Limu Points.

At the end of each month, We will pay an amount of money equal to the amount requested by the Provider to be disbursed from his/her Available Account Balance to the Provider by cheque. We will deduct from the payment any transaction fees related to the payment (including but not limited to foreign exchange costs, transfer fees or otherwise) and the Provider will be solely responsible to bear all costs associated in clearing such cheque. The Provider will be able to request disbursements from his/her Available Account Balance at amounts which are above the minimum disbursement threshold ("Minimum Disbursement Threshold") currently set at US$50 (fifty US Dollars) and net of any transaction fees related to the payment (including but not limited to foreign exchange costs, transfer fees or otherwise).

Notwithstanding the above, the Provider authorises Us to withhold disbursements of monies to the Provider until We are satisfied that any particular payment will not be disputed by the Learner concerned or charged back by such Learner's credit card issuer.

The Provider further authorises Us to withhold disbursements of monies to the Provider if We, in Our sole discretion, have reason to believe that such monies may have been paid by the Learner or any third party fraudulently, improperly or without the Learner's authority until We are satisfied that any particular payment will not be disputed by the Learner concerned or charged back by such Learner's credit card issuer, or until such time as We are able to verify, to Our satisfaction, that no fraudulent activity has occurred in relation to those monies.

If for any reason a Learner succeeds in obtaining reimbursement from Us of any monies paid to Us by the Learner, or by any third party fraudulently, improperly or without a rightful credit card holder's authority, after such amount has been disbursed to the Provider, We shall be entitled forthwith to receive reimbursement from the Provider concerned for the total amount of any monies so paid out to the Learner.

Under no circumstances can We be held responsible for the Learner not paying the agreed upon amount for a valid Knowledge Asset booking no matter what the reason for such failure to pay (including without limitation the Learner not having sufficient credit with the credit card issuer to make payment, or the Learner not using a valid credit card for payment). However in that situation, We agree not to charge the Provider with its share of the Transaction Fee.

The Provider agrees that in no circumstances will he/she have any claim against the Learner or Limu, if the payment method agreed at booking was "Learner pays if reasonably satisfied with Knowledge Asset" and such Learner has rated the Provider at the lowest possible level and has thereby confirmed his/her dissatisfaction with the Provider's performance or the quality of the Knowledge Asset.

The Provider also agrees that in no circumstances will he/she have any claim against Us, if the payment method agreed at booking was "Learner pays at delivery" and such Learner has failed to make payment to the Provider for the Knowledge Asset when prompted as completion of the Knowledge Asset.

In cases where the Provider has elected to invoice the Learner directly for Knowledge Asset Fees the Provider agrees that under no circumstance will Limu be responsible for the collection of such Invoiced Knowledge Asset Fees and that all such collection processes are to be undertaken by the Provider between himself/herself and the Learner and independently of Limu.
