Upon purchasing an e-learning package, individual access to all of the appropriate content, information and materials (including but not limited to video clips and additional resources) is granted to each user for a period of 365 days from the original date of purchase. At the end of the 365 day period, your access to the e-learning package will expire and no further access to the e-learning package will be available thereafter. Upon purchasing an e-learning package, the appropriate e-learning lessons may be accessed as many times as required during the 365 day period, provided that they are accessed solely for the personal use of the customer, unless specifically stated otherwise within these terms and conditions or agreed otherwise by Sterling Chase Associates Ltd.
Unless a multi-user e-learning package is purchased, subject to the other terms hereof, the client may access the e-learning lessons which he or she has purchased from a maximum of three Internet Protocol (IP) addresses on any given day. Multiple concurrent use of a username and password by the client is strictly prohibited unless a multi-user e-learning package is purchased.
Purchasers of a multi-user e-learning package will receive five individual usernames and passwords in total. Upon purchasing a multi-user e-learning package, the client will be asked to choose one username and password on the Sterling Chase website. The client will then be contacted by a representative of Sterling Chase Associates Ltd and asked to choose an additional four usernames and passwords (subject to availability and acceptability). The additional usernames and passwords will then be configured by a representative of Sterling Chase Associates Ltd and confirmation will be sent via email from Sterling Chase to the client. On configuration of all five usernames and passwords, the multi-user e-learning package may only be used by five separate individuals who have received the permission of the original purchaser.
Sterling Chase Associates Ltd reserves the right to terminate your access to our e-learning platform without a refund and prohibit access to all of the e-learning content, information and materials if one of your usernames is found to have been accessed concurrently by more than one computer or accessed by more than three IP addresses on any given day.
Clients are prohibited from sharing access to an e-learning package with a third party who is not subject to these terms and conditions. The original purchaser is responsible for keeping their login details (i.e. username(s) and password(s)) secure. If a third party who is not subject to these terms and conditions is found to be using a client’s login details, the original purchaser’s access to Sterling Chase’s e-learning platform will be terminated and the original purchaser will not be entitled to a refund.
