We may, in our sole discretion, modify this Terms of Service with or without notice to you. The "Last Updated" date at the top of this Terms of Service will indicate when the latest modifications were made. By continuing to access and use the Services after this Terms of Service has been modified, you are agreeing to such modifications. Therefore, you should review this Terms of Service prior to each use of the Services. In addition, when using particular services or features or making purchases on the Services, you shall be subject to any posted guidelines or policies applicable to such services, features or purchases that may be posted from time to time. All such guidelines or policies are hereby incorporated by reference into this Terms of Service.
You represent and warrant that if you are an individual, you are of legal age to form a binding contract, or that if you are registering on behalf of an entity, that you are authorized to enter into, and bind the entity to, this Terms of Service and register for the Services. The Services are not available to individuals who are younger than 13 years old. Tutorout may, in its sole discretion, refuse to offer the Services to any person or entity and change its eligibility criteria at any time. You are solely responsible for ensuring that this Terms of Service is in compliance with all laws, rules and regulations applicable to you and the right to access the Services is revoked where this Terms of Service or use of the Services is prohibited and, in such circumstances, you agree not to use or access the Site or Services in any way.

If someone else is paying for (or authorizing) your tutoring account, you agree to print this document and hand it to him or her.
Through our Services, we enable users to connect with tutors (“Tutors”) who provide live, one-to-one instruction, tutoring and learning services though a video and/or audio connection (each, a “Tutoring Session”). As part of the Services, we require all Tutors to enter into a binding contract with us whereby the Tutors make various representations to us relating to their educational credentials, qualifications and other matters, such as lack of criminal history. That said, Tutorout does not do not perform criminal and/or background checks on its Tutors.
You are solely responsible for all service, telephony and/or other fees and costs associated with your access to and use of the Services and for obtaining and maintaining all telephone, computer hardware and other equipment required for such access and use.
The Tutorout Site may periodically be unavailable as we perform regular maintenance and upgrades during off peak hours.
To use the Services, you will need to register with TutorOut either through our signup form or by calling us and may be given an account, username or password. You are solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account, username and password and for all activities and liabilities associated with or occurring under them.

When you select a tutoring plan, we immediately charge your credit card and put into your account the number of hourly sessions that correspond to your tutoring plan. If we offer and you register for a recurring set of sessions, on the same day of each month, until you tell us otherwise, we charge your monthly fee to your credit card and refill your account with the number of sessions that correspond to your tutoring plan. When you finish a tutoring session, we deduct the time you spent with the Tutor from your account balance.
The sessions we place in your account remain in your account until you use them with one of our Tutors, or until your tutoring plan is cancelled. If you cancel your tutoring plan, we remove the unused sessions from your account.
While we hope that you will be completely satisfied with the Services. If you do have an unsatisfactory session, please let us know about your experience so that we may investigate and hopefully improve our service. To report an unsatisfactory session you may call us during business hours in China at 13081608179 or in the United States at (650) 539-5788, or you may sign in to your account and use our automated chat or message system. If our internal review process determines that your hourly session did not meet our standards of quality, we will issue you a free session, for you to use within three months or until your account is cancelled, whichever comes first.
If you would like to request a refund for your tutoring plan purchase for any reason, you may do so by calling us during business hours in China at 13081608179 or in the United States at (650) 539-5788.

For example, if you purchased a hypothetical ten-session plan for 3000RMB, used five of your ten hourly sessions, and request a refund within 30 days, we will refund 1500RMB of your initial purchase. No refunds will be issued if you request it after the first 30 days of purchase.
