We value transparency and that means not hiding behind big words and long Terms of Service pages. So we'll try to keep this short and clear.
You need an account for most things on Scientific Programming School.com. That means you have a password to protect. We take password management very seriously, but can only protect your password from our end. If someone gets your password from your email inbox, personal notes, written notes, or you tell it to someone, there's simply nothing we can do about that other than to reset your password.
You are not allowed to share your account with anybody else. Your account may hold credit card information, be able to issue a refund for a course, and much more. Because of this, we require you to keep your account to yourself and not share your login credentials with anybody else.
Both students and instructors must be at least 18 years of age to use Scientific Programming School.com. If you are under the age of 18 but would like access to a course, we encourage you to ask your parent or guardian to setup and account for you.
Enrollments and lifetime access
When you enroll in a course you are granted lifetime access. Lifetime access means two things on Scientific Programming School.com:
Lifetime access as an Scientific Programming School Premium member means the duration of your subscription.
Lifetime access for a course you've purchased (one-time purchase) means you will have access to that course for as long as that course exists on Scientific Programming School.com.
Occasionally we will need to remove or disable content from Scientific Programming School.com. Typicaly this is for legal or policy reasons, such as a course that's teaching a subject we don't allow. As a student, you are not allowed to redistribute course content without permission from Scientific Programming School.com. Of course, if you own the content and you are the instructor of a course, you may redistribute your own content.
Course purchase methods
One-time purchases: Every course is available to purchase for USD $5.00. A coupon may be applied to lower to price.
Scientific Programming School Premium: Alternatively, you may subscribe to Scientific Programming School.com for USD $12/month. You will get immediate access to any and all available courses for the duration of your subscription. Just renew you subscription by purchasing the Premium plan again, no auto-renew ever!
We maintain that all courses are set to either USD $5.00 or set as a free course and do not require purchashing. This may seem strange at first, but we strategically do this to compete with other platforms.
At this time we only accept Paypal as a form of payment.
If you buy a course (one-time purchase) you have 30 days to initiate a refund without being charged. If you are an Scientific Programming School Premium member you have 14 days to initial a refund and cancel your subscription without being charged.
When you cancel your Scientific Programming School Premium subscription you will immediately lose access to all your courses.
Scientific Programming School's right to content you post
If a course has a conflict of interest, breaks our terms or privacy policies, a course may be removed or hidden. We try to help protect the public from things like misinformation, violence and several other subjects. That means a course may be removed if it doesn't meet our minimum criteria.
