You are solely responsible for the activities carried out through the use of your access code and password, and Didacte shall have no obligation whatsoever to verify the true identity or authority of any person entering said access code and password. In other words, you shall be bound by any use of your electronic profile, even if such use occurs without your knowledge or consent.
You acknowledge that Didacte will at no time and under no circumstance whatsoever be held liable for losses or damages stemming from any kind of use of your access code and password by a third party. Should Didacte ever act on the basis of instructions given by yourself or any person using your access code and password, you shall defend, indemnify, and hold Didacte harmless against any claims, losses, or expenses incurred following the use of your access code and password – whether or not you authorized it.
It is your duty and responsibility to immediately notify Didacte the moment (i) you learn that an unauthorized person is in possession of your access code and password, or (ii) you are made aware of any form of privacy or security breach.

Use or Disclosure of Confidential Information
Return of Confidential Information
Survival of Confidentiality Obligations
By registering, setting up an account, and/or using the Website, you agree to receive (i) e-mails and information issued by Didacte, its affiliates, and/or its service providers, which contain promotional considerations and offers of products and services likely to be of interest to you, and (ii) promotions advertised by third parties directly or indirectly interested by the use you make of the Website. Should you, at any moment, decide that you no longer wish to receive promotional communications, just click on the “unsubscribe” link you will find at the bottom of each e-mail, or send a request to that effect to Didacte’s customer support service (email@example.com). For obvious reasons, Didacte disclaims any and all liability in connection with promotional notices and other communications sent to you by third parties.
Copyright and Trademarks
As all Didacte applications are protected under the copyright laws and regulations of Canada, it is strictly forbidden to copy, reproduce, publish, or distribute, whether as a whole or in part, any content found on Didacte’s Website and/or applications. Didacte is the sole owner of the trademarks it uses in connection with the products and services it offers, whether it be names, graphics, logos, icons, drawings, designs, words, titles, or sentences. As all such trademarks are protected under relevant Canadian laws and regulations, you may not use either one of them without first obtaining Didacte’s explicit consent.
Copyright Owned by Third Parties
Didacte respects the intellectual property rights and interests owned by other parties, and requires that its Users do the same.
Each and every Instructor must make sure that the resources they broadcast, distribute, display or sell through the Didacte Platform either belong to them in full, are properly licensed to them for that purpose or are totally free of any rights belonging to other parties. Hence, Didacte expressly disclaims any and all liability in regards to the broadcast, distribution, display or sale of intellectual property over which third parties could exercise any kind of rights.
Didacte commits to withdraw any content which violates the provisions of Canadian copyright laws or regulations or of any other statute or legislation which could find application. It also reserves the right to terminate the account of delinquent Instructors without notice should particular circumstances warrant it.
Rights of Use
It is strictly forbidden to reserve a Didacte domain name in view of a future use or in order to secure a resale or to solicit payments. Didacte domain names are assigned on a “first come, first served” basis. Didacte may at any time rename or terminate inactive accounts.
No purchase of training sessions through Didacte shall ever (i) entitle anyone to use the content for business or promotional purposes, or (ii) have the effect of transferring any copyright to Other Users.
License to Use
Instructors are and remain the owners of the content they publish through the Didacte Platform. Didacte shall, at no time and in no circumstances whatsoever, copy, broadcast publicly, or transmit content without first having obtained the relevant Instructor’s explicit consent. Instructors shall defend, indemnify and hold harmless Didacte and its officers shareholders, parents, subsidiaries, agents, successors and assigns against all liabilities, damages, costs, including interest accrued, and any legal fees arising out of (i) any unauthorized download of content by an Other User to their personal computer, or (ii) any use of content (whether or not it was motivated by a business purpose) that may have caused you harm.
By using the “enclosed document” feature, you allow Other Users who have registered in training sessions you provide to access (and download on their personal computer) any attached document – provided that such access and/or download occur for personal reasons (as opposed to business purposes).
Text files, videos, images, tests, and PDFs
Instructors authorize Other Users who have registered to training sessions they provide to access all text files, videos, images, tests, and PDFs – provided that such access occurs for strictly personal reasons. They also allow Other Users who have registered to training sessions they provide to download on their personal computer a copy of the PDFs which have been cleared for download – once again, provided that such download occurs for strictly personal reasons.
Didacte’s Website may contain links to other websites. Should you ever follow a link and access an external website, please keep in mind that any use you could make of such a website will be governed by the website’s own terms and conditions, and that Didacte shall at no time or in no circumstances whatsoever be held liable for the website’s content or the way it processes your data and/or information. From the outset, Didacte disclaims any and all liability in regards to losses or damages (actually or allegedly) incurred (whether directly or indirectly) because you accessed and/or used any of those external websites.
Didacte’s money-back guarantee
Should a problem ever present itself in the course of a transaction between an Instructor and an Other User, Didacte’s money-back guarantee steps in and allows the Instructors and the Other Users to communicate efficiently in order to resolve the situation. In such a case, the Instructors allow Didacte to come to a final decision and agree to comply with the terms of the settlement.
Any refund owed to an Other User must come directly from the Instructor’s Didacte account. Whenever a refund intervenes within sixty (60) days of the issuance of the original invoice, the Didacte fees invoiced through the Didacte Platform are refunded in proportion to the amount reimbursed to the Other User. Once sixty (60) days have elapsed since the original invoice was issued, none of the Didacte fees are refunded.
In the event where you (as an administrator) elected to reimburse an Other User or had to reimburse an Other User or Didacte under the latter’s money-back guarantee, you hereby agree that Didacte will instruct its third-party payment processor to deduct the amount of the refund from your account, to add said amount to your invoice, or to otherwise perform the refund according to the payment method described in your user file. Should Didacte be unable to obtain the refund from you, Didacte shall collect any unpaid amount by any necessary means of recovery, and if need be by retaining the services of a collection agency.
If Didacte comes to the conclusion that the parties misuse or hinder the settlement process in any way, Didacte may, at any given time and without prior notice, withdraw its money-back guarantee in whole or in part.
Termination and restricted access
Didacte may close all accounts left unconfirmed as well as those which have been inactive for at least twelve (12) consecutive months, without notice. It may also modify its Website and the services it provides, or decide that it will no longer offer or operate them. In any event, it reserves the right, at its sole and absolute discretion and for any reason whatsoever, to refuse to provide services to any individual or entity or to terminate services it already provides.
Warranties and Disclaimers
Didacte represents and warrants that:
(i) the Website does not infringe on any third-party intellectual property rights or constitute a misuse or misappropriation of a trade secret; (ii) contingent upon User’s proper use, User’s use of the Website does not infringe on any third-party intellectual property rights; and (iii) it has the right to grant the access and use of the Website to Users.
