Article 7. Member Services

The Website and our Services are provided to help individuals and families access private tuition, and to help private teachers to offer their services to such individuals and families. The Website and our Services are not provided to education-related companies, agencies, schools and other organisations (together, Organisations). By registering, you are confirming that you are not an Organisation and that you will not use the Website or our Services to seek or provide education-related services on behalf of any Organisation. We do, however, welcome enquiries from Organisations wishing to work with us and any such enquiries should be directed to us using our contact details as set out on the Website.

Our Services includes:

A subscription service for teachers whereby teachers may register their details with us and students may browse registered teachers and request (and, where the teacher accepts, obtain) a teacher's contact information for the purpose of setting up a Tuition Arrangement.

Our Standard Services are services for the provision of teachers's contact details. The relevant Service is fulfilled once those contact details have been provided.

Article 7.1 Provisions that specifically apply to Teachers

If you are a teacher, the following provisions in this paragraph apply to you. If you are not a teacher, those provisions do not apply to you.

You promise to us that you are at least eighteen years of age and can (and will on request) provide any references, Criminal Record checks or proof of qualifications as claimed in your profile. You shall accept full responsibility for the prices quoted for your services on the Website and for collection of all fees due to you from any student.

In responding to feedback from students posted on the Website, you shall not be personally abusive about a student or anyone else. You acknowledge that students are entitled to submit feedback in relation to you, your profile and your tuition services. Students can submit scores out of five and written comments. You cannot control whether or not scores submitted by students will be published. You are, however, entitled to determine whether or not comments in relation to you should be publicly viewable. When a student submits a comment via the Website, you will be sent a message showing the score and the comment. You must then approve or decline the comment within three weeks. If you decline it will not be made publicly viewable.

You acknowledge that we retain the right to remove or edit feedback where we see appropriate in occasional cases. We do not intervene with teacher/student disputes in relation to feedback left on your profile but you have the option to reply to the feedback and also to contact us regarding any query you may have.

You shall secure payment from your students for services provided pursuant to a Tuition Arrangement directly and shall not seek to recover any payment in relation to your tuition services from us.

You acknowledge that you are not an employee of ours or any of our affiliated companies and you accept full responsibility for all Income Tax, National Insurance and other taxation or employment-related responsibilities arising in connection with your involvement in any Tuition Arrangement.

You acknowledge that your details may be provided to a student, but that students are under no commitment to undertake any Tuition Arrangement simply by virtue of them having obtained your details from us.

You acknowledge that your teacher profile and some details entered by you on the Website will be publicly visible and may appear in search engine results. If you do not want such information to appear in search engine results you should deselect the option in your account settings in which case we will use reasonable endeavours to try to avoid such information appearing in search engine results but in any case we are not responsible for search engine results provided by third parties.

Article 7.2 Provisions that specifically apply to Students

If you are a student or if, as a teacher, you enjoy student-level access, the following provisions in this paragraph apply to you.

Before we supply a teacher's contact details to you, we will have collected certain basic information submitted by the teacher in relation to their identity, experience, training, authorisations and/or qualifications (Credentials). Whilst we may request that teachers make available full details of their Credentials, due to the number of teachers using our Services, it is not reasonably practicable for us to check each teacher's Credentials on your behalf, and we cannot do so. For this reason, we cannot guarantee that the information submitted by the teacher is accurate and we shall not be responsible for any failure of the teacher to provide to you satisfactory evidence to support the statements on the teacher's profile as to the teacher's Credentials. You should always check carefully all relevant information and documents in relation to a teacher before you choose to enter into a Tuition Arrangement with the teacher and you should verify the teacher's Credentials (e.g. by checking identification) yourself before entering into any Tuition Arrangement.

Before we supply a teacher's contact details to you, you may be required to submit and confirm information in relation to yourself, your tuition requirements and the terms on which you would be prepared to engage a teacher to provide tuition services. You agree to supply such information and consent to it being shared with potential teachers.

In the extremely unlikely event that none of the contact details we provide to you in relation to a teacher were accurate and up to date at the time we provided them to you, you shall be informed.

In the event that the teacher is not then available in the manner that was suggested by the teacher via the Website and the Service, you should contact us to inform us and should submit feedback on the teacher explaining the problem.

Article 7.3 Member Content

At weloveTeachingEnglish we put you the Member in control; therefore for the avoidance of all doubt it is your responsibility to decide which information to publish or send as Member Content. De Anima Consulting Ltd cannot be held liable for any misuse thereof by any other user or third party.

You the Member are solely responsible for the content, including but not limited to photos, profiles information, messages, search results edits, and other content that you upload, publish or display (hereinafter, "submit") on or through the Service, or transmit to or share with other users. You may not submit content to the Service that you did not create or that you do not have permission to submit. For submissions to search results pages, you may not submit content that is not compatible with the license used by the particular project of the Service. You understand and agree that others may, but are not obligated to, edit, delete or remove (without notice) any content from the Service, for any reason or no reason. You also represent and warrant that you own or have the necessary licenses, rights, releases, consents, and permissions to (a) permit the Company to copy, store, publish, display, and distribute your content via the Service, and (b) license all text submissions by you pursuant to the applicable Licensing terms.

The information supplied by a Member must be accurate and conform to the reality. The consequences of disclosing information on the life of the Member or of other Members are the sole responsibility of the Member concerned.

Consequently, he/she waives all recourse against De Anima Consulting Ltd, notably on the basis of any possible damage to the Member's right to his/her image, the Member's honour and reputation, or the Member's privacy, resulting from the dissemination or revelation of information concerning the Member under the conditions foreseen by this agreement since the Member has given his/her prior, free and express consent to such revelation through his/her registering with the Service and in application of this Agreement.

We reserve the right not to accept or to suspend or remove from our Services all or part of any profile, personal ad or any other Member Content for any reason we deem fit.

We are not liable for Member Content or other activities of Members which may breach the rights of other Users or third parties.

Members are urged to notify us of inappropriate Member Content. You acknowledge that such notification may take place and that we may take steps outlined in this Agreement in respect of such information which comes to our attention.

We reserve the right not to accept or to suspend or remove from our Services all or part of any profile, personal ad or any other Member Content for any reason we deem fit.

We reserve the right to irretrievably delete messages and other Member Content after any period of time if we exercise any right of termination under this agreement.

The prices and the terms of payment for the different Paid Services are displayed at all times on this site, including at the point when the member chooses to make a purchase.
