1.5 How Amphy and the Services work
We are an online marketplace for Student Members and Tutor Members. We do not endorse, hire, or employ the Tutor Members, nor are we responsible or liable for any interactions involved between them and Student Members. Our Services are separate and distinct from the services provided by the Tutor Members using Amphy. The Members are solely responsible for all interactions, conversations, and any form of communication and behavior between them. Our Services consist of three primary services:
– Marketplace services – connecting between Tutor Members who wish to market their lessons and courses to Student Members who wish to find, acquire, and participate in such lessons and courses. After registration and verification, Tutor Members are allowed to publicize themselves and create their profile, to connect and communicate with Student Members and offer them their clsasses, lessons and courses and other services ancillary thereto (a “Listing”). For Student Members, we provide the ability to search through the available Listings, communicate with the Tutor Members, and acquire and schedule any such class, lesson or course.
– Billing and payment services – we provide both Student Members and Tutor Members with our billing platform, allowing them to pay or receive any payment that needs to be paid by the Student Member to the Tutor Member following a purchased Listing.
– Virtual classroom services – Amphy also serves and/or facilitates the use of virtual classrooms, allowing Students Members and Tutor Members to execute any online class, lesson or coursefollowing a purchased Listing.
Unregistered users can search and review Listings. However, only registered Members can purchase, schedule, or create a Listing. We reserve the right to restrict any Services only to Members and discontinue any product or Services at will.
1.6 Amphy – Member Relationship
The Services we provide to Amphy Members are separate and distinct from the services provided by the Tutor Members. These Terms do not, and will not be construed to, create any partnership, joint venture, employer-employee, agency or franchisor-franchisee relationship between you, or any of the Members, and Amphy. With respect to any Listing provided by you to any Student Member, you act exclusively on your behalf and for your own benefit. Any Listing you post is an offer you submit to other Members of Amphy, as part of your direct and exclusive relationship with such Members. Each Tutor Member undertakes to not mislead or create a false impression that he/she is endorsed by or acting on behalf or in collaboration with Amphy. Any Student Member acknowledges and agrees that Tutor Members are not employees or agents of Amphy , and operate a separate and distinct legal relationship with the Student Members.
We urge all Members to use Amphy responsibly and carefully while accepting any transaction entered into with any other Member.
Without derogating the above said, we may (but are not obliged to do so) supervise, control, and regulate any interaction between Members in Amphy. E.g., we might review and approve or delete any content in any Listing which does not comply with our Terms or guidelines. Similarly, Amphy’s scheduling system might automatically regulate interactions between Members, in accordance with our Cancellation and Refund Policy. We take such actions only as part of our Services – the management of the marketplace and billing services. Members are solely responsible for their interactions and communications. We reserve the right, but not the obligation, to monitor disputes and/or communications between you and other Members.
