5MINS END USER TERMS AND CONDITIONS
Last updated 8 February, 2022
5Mins AI Ltd, doing business as 5Mins (“5Mins”, “we”, “us”, “ours”), allows users to discover, watch, upload, comment on and share educational content, and connect with their peers. Its services are made available to users through mobile and web apps controlled by 5Mins (herein referred to collectively as the “Platform”)
Before engaging with the Platform as a user, we would like you to read these Terms carefully. They set out the rules on which we make our Platform available to users.
If you are being provided access to the 5Mins Platform via your employer, they may have taken care of any payments required to access the services available on the Platform.
Our Platform is available via our website at www.5mins.ai and via our App and these Terms apply equally to both.
1. A little bit about us and what we will do for you
1.1 The Platform is operated by 5Mins AI Ltd. We are a company registered in England and Wales under company number 12961780. Our registered office address is 1 Quality Court, London, England, WC2A 1HR
1.2 If you have any questions or would like to get in touch with us, please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org
1.3 If we have to contact you we will do so by writing to you at the email address you provided to us when you registered.
1.4 When we use the word “writing” or “written” in these Terms, this includes email.
2. By using our Platform you accept these Terms
2.2 If you do not agree to any of the Terms set out in this document, you should not use our Platform or services.
2.3 If you are under 18 years of age, you must have a parent of guardian’s permission to use our Platform.
2.4 In the event of a material breach and/or persistent breaches of the Terms, 5Mins shall have the right, at its sole discretion, to suspend your access to the 5Mins Platform and/or suspend the provision of the services which it facilitates.
3. We may make changes
3.1 We amend these terms from time to time, so please check them occasionally. For example, we may change them to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulations.
3.2 We may also update and change the Platform from time to time to update its functionality, to make available new Advantages and/or to address the needs of our users.
3.3 We will notify you of any significant changes and/or any changes that require any action from you. If you do not agree to any changes, you should stop using the Platform.
4. Availability of our Platform
We cannot guarantee that our Platform, or any content on it, will always be available or be uninterrupted. This is because our Platform is provided via the internet and interruptions, delays and other technical problems are “part and parcel” of the provision of services via the internet. We may need to suspend, withdraw or restrict the availability of all or any part of our Platform, for example for security, maintenance or operational reasons. We will try to give you notice if the Platform is not going to be available for an extended period of time.
5. Platform account access
5.1 Before you start using our Platform, we will need you to complete registration and/or activate your account. Some of the information (such as your name and email address) may have already been provided to us by your employer if your access to the platform is being facilitated by your employer, but we may need some further details from you to complete your registration.
5.2 It is important to keep your details correct and up-to-date at all times so please make sure that you verify and provide us with true, accurate and complete information during your account registration process and update it afterwards if necessary. If we discover that any information related to your account is not accurate, we may need to suspend or cancel your account.
5.3 If you are provided with, or set up your own password or any other piece of information as part of our security procedures during your registration, please ensure that you treat such information as confidential. If you choose your own password, we recommend that you use a combination of letters, uppercase and lowercase, numbers and symbols; this will make it difficult for someone else to use your account. Please do not share this information with anyone. Your account is personal to you and you should not allow anyone else to access your account on our Platform. For this reason, we recommend that you always log-off your account when you access our Platform from a shared device.
5.4 If you know or suspect that anyone other than you know your login details, you should contact us as soon as possible at email@example.com
5.5 We may temporarily or permanently disable your login information if we suspect it is being used by someone else. We may also require you to change your password for security reasons.
5.6 You may at any time request the deletion of your account on our Platform.
