Conditions particularly relevant to students and parents or any person acting on behalf of student (Collectively referred to as users).

.

a. When contacting a potential Tutor (or using the Premium Service) through the App, you will be required to submit information in relation to yourself (or the student on whose behalf you are acting), for example your email address, your tuition requirements, etc. In doing so, you agree for this information to be shared with the potential Tutor and Taktii.

b. Taktii provides an electronic payment facility (“Payment Facility”) to enable Students to easily pay, rate and review Tutors. When you contact a Tutor through the App, you agree that, in the event that you commence a Tuition Arrangement with the Tutor, you will only pay your Tutor through our Payment Facility (payable invoices will be emailed to you by your Tutor). For the avoidance of doubt, this means you agree not to pay your Tutor using cash, cheque or any other form of money transfer aside from the Payment Facility.

c. Taktii adds a service fee to each invoice processed through the Payment Facility. The service fee will be advertised near any advertised Tutor or Group Tutorial price or rate, and will be clearly itemised on each invoice you receive. Taktii’s continued existence depends on this service fee, hence why use of the Payment Facility is important to us.

d. Refunds are administered by the Tutor, not Taktii. Your first point of contact regarding a refund is your Tutor. It is strongly recommended to obtain a Tutor’s cancellation policy in writing before entering into a Tuition Arrangement, as clear communication usually avoids any disputes. If you have a dispute with a Tutor, please see the Disputes section.

  1. An example cancellation policy that a Tutor may use is as follows: if a lesson is cancelled at least 12 hours before the scheduled start time, there will be no charge. If cancelled within 12 hours, 50% of the scheduled lesson time may be charged; if cancelled within 1 hour of the start time (or a student fails to show), 100% of the scheduled lesson time may be charged. If a student is late to a lesson, charge may be made from the scheduled start time.

3. Trial Lesson Guarantee

a. Taktii requires Tutors to guarantee that their first lesson with a Student, if not satisfactory to the Student, will be free of charge (“Trial Lesson Guarantee”). If you have pre-paid for the first lesson, the Tutor will refund you upon request.

b. Failure of the Tutor to honour the Trail Lesson Guarantee will lead to suspension of the Tutor from the App. If you believe a Tutor is in breach of this policy, please raise this with them in the first instance; if this does not resolve the situation, please contact Taktii.


4. Premium Service

a. For time-pressed parents and students, Taktii offers a “Premium Service” for finding and suggesting potential Tutor or Group Tutorial options. Using the information you provide, Taktii will contact and communicate with selected Tutors to ascertain their availability and suitability on your behalf. Ideally, one to two potential Tutors will be presented as options to the enquiring Student. It is then up to the Student and the Tutor to decide whether or not to undertake a Tuition Arrangement, as per the conditions herein.

b. Upon the undertaking of a Tuition Arrangement with a Tutor that we have presented to you, you will be invoiced a service fee. The service fee will be clearly indicated before you use the Premium Service.

c. No service fee will be invoiced if you do not commence a Tuition Agreement with any of the presented Tutors (i.e., you do not like any of the Tutors presented). In addition, if you do not feel satisfied with the presented Tutor after the completion of First Trail Lesson or Lecture you are not obligated to pay the service fee for the Premium Service.


5. Conditions particularly relevant to tutors.

a. Taktii promotes a “Trial Lesson Guarantee” policy to potential Students. You agree to incorporate this policy as part of your Tuition Agreement with every Student, namely the guarantee that, if for any reason the Student is dissatisfied with your first lesson, you will not charge them for it (and will provide a full refund if the lesson was paid for in advance). This policy is designed to promote you to potential Students, and from experience, is seldom invoked. Failure to honour the Trial Lesson Guarantee policy will lead to suspension from the App.

b. You should aim to reply to enquiries made by potential Students within 24 hours of receipt, whether or not you are available to enter into a Tuition Arrangement.

c. You agree to only receive payment from Students through Taktii’s Payment Facility in the event that you commence a Tuition Arrangement with a Student that has contacted you through the App. For the avoidance of doubt, this means you agree not to accept payment in the form of cash, cheque or any other form of money transfer other than through the Payment Facility available at Taktii.

d. The Payment Facility uses PayPal to process payments. Tutors are responsible for paying all transaction fees for each transaction, i.e. those charged by PayPal (see PayPal for current transaction fee rates). PayPal will automatically deduct their transaction fees from the payments you receive through the Payment Facility.

e. Taktii adds a service fee to each payment processed through the Payment Facility. This service fee is payable by the Student, i.e. it is added by Taktii to the subtotal of the invoice you send. Taktii’s revenue relies on this service fee, hence why use of the Payment Facility is important to us. The service fee will automatically be transferred from your PayPal account to Taktii, and you agree for this to occur. Not receiving payment from your Student through Taktii’s Payment Facility may lead to your suspension from the App.

f. You are required to be able to provide evidence of any claimed qualification(s) or background check(s) if requested by a Student during or prior to a Tuition Arrangement.

g. The requirement for a background check for individuals offering tuition varies from country to country, and is sometimes compulsory; it is strongly recommended that you ascertain from your local government what your legal responsibilities are in this regard. You agree that you will comply with all such relevant legal responsibilities when using the App.

h. The App aims to promote and favour Tutors that are actively receiving ratings, reviews or hours from Students, as well as tuition enquiries from potential Students. Ratings, reviews and hours can only be received from Students when payment is made through the Payment Facility. Taktii reserves the right to deactivate your account where we deem you not to be receiving sufficient tuition enquiries from potential Students, or when you have not obtained sufficient ratings, reviews or hours through the Payment Facility over a period of several weeks. Deactivation is exercised at Taktii’s discretion, and equates to your profile no longer being publicly viewable on the App.

i. If you feel that a Student review is unfairly impacting your reputation, you may contact Taktii to ask for the review to be examined. Taktii reserves the right to remove or edit hours, ratings, reviews and responses as it deems fit.

j. If we have reason to believe that you are engaged in a Tuition Arrangement that was facilitated by the App, but are not using the Payment Facility for Student payments, we are likely to deactivate your account.

k. If your account has been deactivated, you will be notified accordingly when you next login (for clarity, your account is not deleted when it is deactivated). If you disagree with the deactivation of your account, please contact Taktii, and we will endeavour to resolve the situation ASAP.

l. Tutors set their own rate (hourly or otherwise) for the services they are advertising, subject to any minimum amount allowed by Taktii. Rates must be a whole number, and inclusive of any applicable tax that you are liable for, so that Tutor prices can easily be compared by users of the App. If you feel that an additional fee is required, for example a travel fee, this may be discussed with the potential Student and your hourly rate modified accordingly.

m. You are permitted to offer discounts to Students as you see fit (i.e. amend the hourly rate you invoice a particular Student at). You are also permitted to offer free tuition, e.g. charity work; simply do not raise an invoice for these lessons. Taktii reserves the right to specify a minimum invoice amount.

n. Tutors are responsible for setting their own cancellation and refund policies (notwithstanding the First Lesson Guarantee), and for issuing refunds to Students. It is strongly recommended to provide your refund and cancellation policy to a Student in writing before entering into a Tuition Arrangement, as clear communication usually avoids any disputes. If you have a dispute with a Student, please see the Disputes section.

o. Tutors using the App are competent and are not disqualafied by any contractual obligation or by any law or by any order of Court of Law , and therefore you accept all responsibility for complying with any taxation, insurance and employment-related responsibilities arising in connection with any Tuition Arrangement made with a Student. Taktii does not monitor or track this on your behalf.

p. In your profile, you agree not to include any personal contact information, for example an email address, phone number or link to an external website/app or communication method. Any contact made to you by a potential Student must go through the App’s built-in contact function; after this first contact, you are free to communicate with the Student as and how you wish. Infringement of the above may lead to deactivation of your account.

q. When creating your profile for the App, you warrant the accuracy of the information posted and agree not to submit any false or misleading information. Multiple profiles or identities for a single person are not allowed. You agree not to promote a business, an organization or other Apps.

Taktii does not hold payment on behalf of any party that uses the Payment Facility; a Tutor invoices a Student using the Payment Facility, and the Student pays the Tutor directly through the PayPal interface (payment ends up in the Tutor’s payu & paytm account).

b. Tutors can only receive ratings and reviews, or log hours, when payment is made by Students through the Payment Facility.

Taktii will not refund the relevant service fee for refunds made outside of the Payment Facility, e.g. in cash. No interest shall be payable on any refund by Tutor or Taktii.
