So if you find it all long and difficult, just read these short paragraphs.

It may happen that StudyGo does not work (properly) sometimes, for instance because of a breakdown or because we are busy improving the site. StudyGo may take information (temporarily) offline, but we will of course never do this randomly. This does not limit StudyGo liability for a failure to perform or for improper performance of the contract.

Interruptions may occur, for example, as a result of faults in the internet or telephone connection or due to viruses or other errors/defects.

Then you can no longer log on to StudyGo until you have paid.
- Depending on the type of account, a fee may be due for the use of the Platform. When a fee is due, the following applies.

The types of membership and their prices are listed on our website.

Intellectual property irghts
If you enter your own wordlists on StudyGo, these remain your property. However, other people are allowed to use and copy your lists. Publishers (the companies that make your school books) like it when you use the StudyGo wordlists only on StudyGo and do not put them on all kinds of other websites. This shows that you respect the publishers – after all, they made the lists.
- The intellectual property rights relating to the Platform, our website and the Content published via our website are vested in us and/or our licensors. Nothing in these Terms and Conditions is intended to transfer any intellectual property rights to you.
- Subject to the conditions in these Terms and Conditions and for the duration of the Agreement, we grant you a limited, personal, revocable, non-exclusive, non-sub- licensable, non-transferable right to access and use the Platform, including our website, and the Content, for the purposes described in these Terms and Conditions.
- You will not take any action that may infringe our intellectual property rights, such as registering domain names, trademarks or Google Adwords or retrieving or re-using substantial parts of the Platform, our website or the Content to the extend it might infringe applicable, intellectual property law, including but not limited to the Polish Act of 4 February 1994 on Copyright and Related Rights and the Polish Act of 27 July 2001 on the Protection of Databases and the Polish Act of 30 June 2000 on Industrial Property Law.

We try to help you as much as possible with learning words. However, we cannot promise that by practising on StudyGo you will improve in school. The reports we send you and/or show you on StudyGo are based on your play behaviour on StudyGo. It is possible that you score better or less well on a test or examination.
- We do our best to provide the best possible service. We do not give or make any guarantees, for example, about the operation, security or accuracy of the Content and the Platform, except as otherwise provided in these Terms and Conditions. We are under no obligation to add or maintain any Content or functionality on the platform upon request.

Have you suffered damages as a result of using StudyGo? If so, please let us know as soon as possible. We are liable for any damage you suffer within statutory law provisions.
You can become a member for three months or one year. If you cancel or stop using your membership within this time, you will not receive a refund. Do you not want to renew your membership? Please let us know that you wish to stop. New customers can take advantage of a free seven-day trial period. This allows you to see if you like StudyGo. After this trial period, you can choose a free or paid subscription, unless stated otherwise on the website.
- The Agreement comes into force at the moment once your order is confirmed. After this, we give you the opportunity to access the Platform for the first time.
- The Agreement is entered into for a fixed term. This term is three (3) months or one (1) year, unless otherwise stated on the Platform. The Agreement may be terminated at any time by you, but such early termination will not affect the initial term of the Agreement and your obligations under the Agreement. If you stop using the Platform prematurely or cancel the membership, StudyGo is not obliged to refund any prepaid fee for the use of the Platform.
Conversion to an indefinite period
- After the agreed fixed term as stated in article 7.2, the Agreement is automatically and tacitly converted into an Agreement for an indefinite period. If you do not want the Agreement to be converted into an Agreement for an indefinite period, you must cancel the Agreement via your account no later than one (1) month before the expiry of the term.
- If the Agreement has been converted into an Agreement for an indefinite period, you can always terminate the Agreement via your account, subject to a notice period of one (1) month.
Extension of a fixed term
- Article 7.3 does not apply if you indicate in your Account that you wish to extend the Agreement for a limited period. Article 7.2 applies accordingly to this extension.
- You may benefit from a free trial period. This trial period will last for seven (7) days, unless otherwise indicated on the Platform. The free trial period applies to new customers only. New Customers means Customers who have not entered into an Agreement with StudyGo in the six (6) months prior to registration.
- After the free trial period has ended, you will be charged the amount of the first term of the Agreement. This does not happen if you cancel the Agreement via your account before the end of the free trial period. You will not be notified when the free trial period ends, unless otherwise stated on the website.
When your membership has ended, you can no longer log in to StudyGo. If there are any bills from StudyGo that you have not yet paid, you must pay them immediately.
- When the Agreement ends, you may no longer use the Platform. We will immediately make your account inaccessible.
- If the Agreement is terminated by termination for cause, any amounts invoiced by us prior to such termination in relation to what we have properly performed will remain due. These amounts become due and payable immediately upon termination.
Customer satisfaction guarantee
For some memberships, the following applies: if you are not satisfied, your money will be refunded. However, you must be a new customer and cancel your membership within 30 days. We will then refund the money to your bank account within a month.
- For some memberships, we use the satisfaction guarantee “Not satisfied, money back”. The website indicates which memberships this applies to.
- The satisfaction guarantee means the following. If you are not satisfied with us or our Service, you may cancel the Agreement within 30 days by sending an email to [email protected] We will do our best to refund you within one (1) month to the account number you provided.
- The Satisfaction Guarantee only applies if you are a new customer, as described in clause 7.6. Customer will be explicitly informed before conclusion of the Agreement whether the Satisfaction Guarantee applies to him/her or not.
Any information we have about you (for example how good you are at practicing) we will not share with others unless you or your parents agree, or because it is necessary in order to provide StudyGo to you. Want to know more about this? Then read our privacy statement on the website.
- We process the data that you provide during the ordering process and the data that you provide when using the Service in a safe manner and in accordance with the Privacy Statement, and applicable laws and regulations.
We hope it won’t ever happen, but suppose we get into a conflict (you disagree with us or we disagree with you) and we can’t work it out together, then we ask the court for help. A judge will then decide which of us is right and help us solve our problem.
- When we have given permission, you may transfer rights and/or obligations from the agreement with us to a third party. We may transfer our rights and obligations in connection with the Agreement to third parties and will inform you of this.
- Dutch law applies to the Agreement, these General Terms and Conditions and all use you make of our Platform.
- All disputes arising from and/or related to the Agreement and/or these Terms and Conditions will be submitted to the competent court in Amsterdam.
