Last Modified Date: Not Applicable

By becoming a user of our services, the User agrees to all terms and conditions within this Agreement. If the User does not agree with all of the provisions of this Agreement, the User must cease all access to, and use of, the Provider’s websites, courses and any other services provided by Global AI Hub. The provisions of these terms and conditions apply to Users who are simply browsing on the websites provided by Global AI Hub, but also to Users purchasing online programs and registering to a user account. Some provisions may only apply to a certain group of Users. In certain cases, Global AI Hub may also declare terms and conditions of third party providers who offer content through Global AI Hub to be applicable. However, this only applies if Global AI Hub explicitly states so. In all other cases terms and conditions of third parties are excluded.
In the eventuality that the User has not yet reached the age of 18, he/she confirms that he/she is competent to make reasonable judgements and acts with the consent of his/her legal representative.
Therefore, the User agrees to the terms and conditions as defined in this Agreement:
Amendments and Updates
Provider reserves the right to adjust the products and services offered, continuously and at any time.
Consequently, Provider is also entitled to adjust the terms and conditions at any time. The terms and conditions that are listed on the websites of Global AI Hub at the time of the use are applicable.
The User agrees that all modifications or changes to this Agreement are in force and enforceable immediately upon posting and will apply to all content and information submitted to and/or retained by Global AI Hub and any other relationship between the Provider and the User. Any updated or edited version supersedes any prior versions immediately upon posting, and the prior version is of no continuing legal effect unless the revised version specifically refers to the prior version and keeps the prior version or portions thereof in effect. As a specific exception to the foregoing, no update or change to this Agreement will affect the financial obligations owed by the User to the Provider, which will exclusively be governed under the version of this Agreement published when the order was placed. The Provider agrees that if it changes anything in this Agreement, Provider will change the “last modified date” at the top of this Agreement so that it is immediately obvious that Provider has updated the Agreement. The User agrees to periodically re-visit the websites, and to use the “refresh” button on his browser when doing so. The User agrees to note the date of the last revision to this Agreement. If the “last modified date” remains unchanged from the last time the User reviewed this Agreement, then the User may presume that nothing in the Agreement has been changed since the last time the User read it. If the “last modified date” has changed, then the User can be certain that something in the Agreement has been changed, and that the User needs to re-review it in order to determine how the User’s rights and responsibilities may have been affected by the revisions. In the event any court deems acceptance of a modification to this Agreement to be ineffective for any reason, the parties intend for the most recent, previously-accepted version of the Agreement to be enforced.
