These Terms govern your access to and use of ADVANTAGES Middle East, products, and/or services (individually or collectively, the “Products”) and any information, content, text, graphics, photos or other materials uploaded, downloaded, purchased, or appearing on or through the Products (collectively referred to as “Content”). Additional terms or product requirements may apply to our individual Products and are available with the relevant Product. These Terms apply to all visitors, users, and others who access and use the Products (“Users”).
By accessing or using the Products you agree to be bound by these Terms.
PLEASE READ THESE TERMS CAREFULLY TO ENSURE THAT YOU UNDERSTAND EACH PROVISION. THESE TERMS CONTAIN A MANDATORY INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION/JURY TRIAL WAIVER PROVISION THAT, TO THE EXTENT APPLICABLE TO YOU, REQUIRES THE USE OF ARBITRATION ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS TO RESOLVE DISPUTES, RATHER THAN JURY TRIALS OR CLASS ACTIONS.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, nothing in these Terms supersedes or limits your rights under (1) the terms and conditions of any written agreement you have entered into with Advantages Middle East regarding the use of Products, or (2) applicable laws or regulations to the extent these Terms are prohibited by such laws or regulations. In the event of any conflict between these Terms and the terms and conditions of an applicable written agreement you have entered into with Advantages Middle East, the terms and conditions of the written agreement shall control.
1. Basic terms & accounts
You are responsible for your use of the Products. You may use the Products only if you can form a binding contract with Advantages Middle East. Your account with Advantages Middle East (and use of the Product) gives you access to the services and functionality that we may establish and maintain from time to time and in our sole discretion. We may maintain different types of accounts for different types of Users. If you are accepting these Terms and using the Products on behalf of a company, organization, government, or other legal entity, then (a) “you” includes you and that entity, and (b) you represent and warrant that you are an authorized representative of the entity with the authority to bind the entity to these Terms, and that you agree to these Terms on the entity’s behalf. You may use the Products only in compliance with these Terms, any agreement entered into by your institution relating to the Products, and all applicable local, state, national, and international laws, rules and regulations.
In cases where you have authorized or registered another individual, including a minor, to use your account(s), you are fully responsible for (i) the online conduct of such User; (ii) controlling the User’s access to and use of the Products; and (iii) the consequences of any misuse. Advantages Middle East requires that the parents, guardian, or other authorized adult or educational institution of a minor affirmatively consent to the use of an Advantages Middle East Product by such minor. Advantages Middle East reserves the right to provide access to the minor’s account to the minor’s parents, guardian or other authorized adult or educational institution, upon such adult’s request.
You are solely responsible for your interactions with other Users. We reserve the right, but have no obligation, to monitor disputes between you and other Users. Advantages Middle East shall have no liability for your interactions with other Users, nor for any User’s acts or omissions.
2. Privacy & use of personal information
Any information that you provide to Advantages Middle East, including first name, last name, email address, and any other information including personal information you have provided, may provide, or may be collected by us in connection with your use of the Products (“Your Information”), will be collected, maintained and used in order to provide the Products to you or your institution, any additional terms applicable to an individual Product, and any agreement entered into by your institution relating to the Product. You understand that, through your use of the Products, you consent to the collection and use (as set forth in these Terms and any agreement entered into by your institution relating to the Product) of Your Information for storage, hosting, processing, and use by Advantages Middle East.
For the avoidance of doubt, personal information that includes Student Data (defined below) provided to Advantages Middle East through the use of these Products is governed by the terms of the agreement between Advantages Middle East and the educational institution relevant to your use of the Products. As between Advantages Middle East and you, you and/or the educational institution own all right, title and interest to all Student Data you provide or otherwise make available to us, and we do not own, control, or license such Student Data, except so as to provide the Products to you and to the educational institution that provides the products and controls Student Data from the educational records, if applicable, and as described herein. “Student Data” is any information (in any format) that is directly related to an identifiable current or former student that is maintained by a school, school district, or related entity or organization, or by us, as part of the provision of the Products. Student Data may include “educational records” as defined by the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (“FERPA”), 20 U.S.C. § 1232(g). Advantages Middle East agrees to treat Student Data as confidential and not to share it with third parties other than as described in Advantages Middle East’s agreement with the educational institution.
