GEDEX has a goal of improving education’s efficiency and quality. The platform provides a comprehensive suite of tools to enable full-time schools, extracurricular program providers, administrators, and teachers to create, deliver, and manage a wide variety of programs and courses using in-person, hybrid, remote, and online instruction methods. This allows students and parents to access more and better quality options for full-time and extracurricular educational programs. The GEDEX platform also offers a variety of online catalogs for full-time schools and education program providers to recruit, enroll, and manage their offline/in-person programs and courses. In addition, the platform provides users with other services, including but not limited to payments, social media, cloud storage, communication tools (email and messaging chat), website creation and hosting, as well as affiliate and reward programs. Rules are necessary to ensure the protection of all participants on our platform, and these rules apply to all activities on the GEDEX platform, its associated applications, and services (“Services”).
Except for your parents or legal guardians if you are an underage minor, you may not share your account login information with anyone else. You are accountable for any activity that occurs on your account, and GEDEX will not become involved in disputes between students or instructors who have shared account login information. If you suspect that someone else may be using your account without your permission (or if you suspect any other security breach), you must notify the Support Team immediately. We may ask you to provide information to verify that you are the account owner.

3. Payments, Credits and Refunds
From time to time, we offer promotions and sales for our products and services, during which certain products and services may be available at discounted prices for a specific duration. The price applicable to the products and services will be the price at the time you complete your purchase of the products and services (at checkout). The price offered for specific products and services may also vary when you are logged into your account compared to the price available to users who are not registered or logged in, as some of our promotions are only available to new users.
If you are logged into your account, the currency listed on the GEDEX platform is based on the location where you created your account. If you are not logged in, the currency used is based on the country where you are located. We do not allow users to view prices in other currencies.
If you are a student located in a country where use and sales tax, goods and services tax, or value-added tax applies to consumer sales, we are responsible for collecting and remitting that tax to the appropriate tax authorities. The price you see may include these taxes, or they may be added at checkout, depending on your location.
When you make a purchase, you agree not to use an invalid or unauthorized payment method. If your payment method fails, and you still receive access to the content you enrolled in, you agree to pay us the corresponding fees within fifteen (15) days of receiving notification from us. We maintain the right to restrict access to any content for which we have not received sufficient payment.
3.3 Refunds and Refund Credits
If the courses and services you purchased do not meet your expectations, you can request a refund credit within 30 days of purchasing the courses or services, which GEDEX will apply to your GEDEX miWallet account. No refund will be given if you request it after the 30-day period has elapsed. However, if the provider cancels or disables the course you purchased, you are entitled to a refund beyond this 30-day limit. GEDEX reserves the right to refund students beyond the 30-day limit in cases of suspected or confirmed account fraud. Instructors also agree, as per the Instructor Terms, that students have the right to receive these refunds.
To request a refund, follow the procedures outlined here. You may choose to retain the credit in your account for future purchases on the GEDEX platform or to withdraw it to the original payment method linked to your miWallet account. At our discretion, if we believe you are abusing our refund policy, such as if you’ve previously consumed a significant portion of the content that you want to refund or have previously refunded the content, we reserve the right to reject your refund request, limit you from other future refunds, prohibit your account, and/or restrict all future use of the Services. If we suspend your account or access to the content due to your violation of these Terms or our Trust & Safety Guidelines, you will not be entitled to a refund. You can find additional information on our refund policy here.

6. Using the GEDEX Platform at Your Own Risk
We enable instructors and students to interact for teaching and learning, as well as schools and education program providers to manage their operations. Like other platforms where people can post content and interact, some things can go wrong, and you use the GEDEX platform at your own risk.
Our platform model means we do not review or edit the content for legal issues, and we are not in a position to determine the legality of content. We do not exercise any editorial control over the content that is available on the platform and, as such, do not guarantee in any manner the reliability, validity, accuracy, or truthfulness of the content. If you access content, you rely on any information provided by an instructor at your own risk.
By using the Services, you may be exposed to content/courses that you consider offensive, indecent, or objectionable. GEDEX has no responsibility to keep such content/courses from you and no liability for your access or enrollment in any course or other content, to the extent permissible under applicable law. This also applies to any content relating to health, wellness, and physical exercise. You acknowledge the inherent risks and dangers in the strenuous nature of these types of content, and by accessing such content you choose to assume those risks voluntarily, including risk of illness, bodily injury, disability, or death. You assume full responsibility for the choices you make before, during, and after your access to the content.
When you interact directly with a student, an instructor or a school/program provider, you must be careful about the types of personal information that you share. While we restrict the types of information instructors may request from students, we do not control what students and instructors do with the information they obtain from other users on the platform. You should not share your email or other personal information about you for your safety.
We do not hire or employ instructors nor are we responsible or liable for any interactions involved between instructors and students. We are not liable for disputes, claims, losses, injuries, or damage of any kind that might arise out of or relate to the conduct of instructors or students.
When you use our Services, you will find links to other websites that we don’t own or control. We are not responsible for the content or any other aspect of these third-party sites, including their collection of information about you. You should also read their terms and conditions and privacy policies.

8. Miscellaneous Legal Terms
8.1 Binding Agreement
When you register, access or use GEDEX Services, you agree to enter into a legally binding agreement with GEDEX. If you do not agree to these Terms, then do not register, access or use any of our Services. If you are an instructor using our Services on behalf of a legal entity, you represent and warrant that you are authorized to do so. Any version of these Terms in a language other than English is provided for convenience and you understand and agree that the English language will control if there is any conflict.
The agreement between you and us, which includes the Instructor Terms and the Promotions Policy if you are an instructor, is composed of these Terms and any linked agreements and policies. If any part of these Terms is deemed invalid or unenforceable by applicable law, it will be replaced by a valid, enforceable provision that most closely matches the original provision’s intent, and the rest of the Terms will still be in effect.
Not enforcing our rights or delaying enforcement in one case does not mean we waive our rights under these Terms, and we can still enforce them in the future. Waiving any of our rights in one instance does not mean we waive our rights generally or in the future. The following sections will continue to be in effect even after the expiration or termination of these Terms: Sections 2 (Content Enrollment and Lifetime Access), 5 (GEDEX’s Rights to Content You Post), 6 (Using GEDEX at Your Own Risk), 7 (GEDEX’s Rights), 8.5 (Subscription Disclaimers), 9 (Miscellaneous Legal Terms), and 10 (Dispute Resolution).
GEDEX platform users acknowledge and accept that the platform may experience downtime, and that instructors may provide misleading information in their content. Additionally, security issues may arise. These types of occurrences fall outside of GEDEX’s control, and users accept that they will have no legal recourse in such cases.
The platform and its content are provided on an “as is” and “as available” basis, without any guarantees or warranties, express or implied, regarding suitability, reliability, availability, timeliness, security, accuracy, merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, title, or non-infringement. There is no guarantee that specific results will be obtained from using the platform, and users agree to use it at their own risk. While some jurisdictions may not permit the exclusion of implied warranties, GEDEX provides no warranties. GEDEX may decide to discontinue certain features of the Services, and users accept that GEDEX, its affiliates, suppliers, partners, and agents will not be held responsible for any resulting damages. GEDEX will not be held liable for any delays or failures to perform its Services due to events beyond its reasonable control, such as natural disasters, electrical, internet or telecommunication outages, government restrictions, acts of war or sabotage.
8.3 Limitation of Liability
The use of our Services carries inherent risks, such as the risk of injury when accessing health and wellness content like yoga. By using our platform and Services, you acknowledge and accept these risks, and agree that you will have no legal recourse to seek damages from us, even if you suffer loss or damage. In legal language, we and our group companies, suppliers, partners, and agents are not liable for any indirect, incidental, punitive, or consequential damages, including loss of data, revenue, profits, or business opportunities, or personal injury or death, whether arising in contract, warranty, tort, product liability, or otherwise. Our liability, and that of our group companies, suppliers, partners, and agents, is limited to the greater of one hundred dollars ($100) or the amount you have paid us in the twelve (12) months before the event giving rise to your claims. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, so some of the above may not apply to you.
If your actions result in GEDEX facing legal issues, we reserve the right to take legal action against you. By using our Services, you agree to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless GEDEX, our group companies, and their officers, directors, suppliers, partners, and agents from any third-party claims, demands, losses, damages, or expenses (including reasonable attorney fees) that arise from:
• The content you post or submit
