Our relationship is a special one and we endeavour to keep it like that by being transparent and effective in our communication. No lengthy terms of use that some of you will never bother to read, that most of us may not even understand and which are made only to save us against class action suits if and when we mess up big time.

A broad set of values and principles govern how we work, deliver learnings and interact with all stakeholders and associates (learners, partners, employees, faculty etc). It is best that you know what these are and make an informed decision to start / continue your journey with us only if you agree with them.

Some services (For eg: Payment Gateway, WhatsApp communication, Learning Management System) are provided by third-party service providers (basically not us) and they will have their own terms and conditions, which we shall not be responsible for.

While learning with us, you shall be bound by the following terms / policies:

  1. Terms of Use
  2. Privacy Policy
  3. Non-discrimination & Anti-harassment Policy
  4. Refund Policy
