By using the resource materials, the purchaser or user agrees to be bound by the terms of this licensing policy. Should the user disagree or refuses to comply with the terms of this licensing policy, the user should not use the resource materials on this website and delete the resource files from his/her devices.

Types of Licenses

  • Personal

Personal License

A personal license as the name connotes is a license that is granted to only a single person. The license is granted to a specific end user and can be used by that person only. These personal licenses are nonexchangeable and cannot be transferred from one person to another.

Except expressly stated in the Terms of Use, the seller grants to a purchaser upon purchase of the resource materials a perpetual, irrevocable, non-transferable, non-exclusive, non-sub licensable, worldwide, limited license to use the Resource materials for the purposes for which it was purchased. The Seller may in its sole discretion give added rights on the license to the purchaser.

Specifically, the seller licenses the purchaser to:

  • One license for only his or her use*
  • Personal and instructive and informational use of the resources only.
  • Download or print copies of the resources and can distribute the same to students or parents for personal use only

*Supplementary licenses can be purchased for other specific users.

The Seller prohibits the purchaser from:

  • Commercializing the resource materials for profit purposes such as marketing or selling it.
  • Sharing the resource materials in public or other platforms by posting, sending, selling or transferring.

Group License

A group license as the name connotes is a license that is granted to two or more users at the same time but can only be transferred to one user at a time. By way of example, a license granted to a specific educator or a specific teacher can be used by that person and can be transferred to another person. These licenses can be used by two persons at the same time and can be transferred from one person to another person at a time. In other words, only two people at every given point in time can use this license. This license is best suited for educational institution or organizations. Only the purchaser i.e. the educational institution or organization can transfer the license from the previous user to a new user and this is permitted twice per annum after the educational institution has claimed the license from the previous user.

Except expressly stated in the Terms of Use, the seller grants to a purchaser upon purchase of the resource material a perpetual, irrevocable, non-transferable, non-exclusive, non-sub licensable, worldwide, limited license to use the resource materials for the purposes for which it was purchased.

  • Two licenses for two users at every point in time*
  • Right of purchaser to claim the license from users and transfer to other users.

*Supplementary licenses can be purchased for more than two users.

Limitation of liability on availability of Resource material

You agree and acknowledge that it is your duty to download and save resource materials on your device. Should you subscribe to resource materials which are un-downloadable and are only accessible online, your license to continuous use of such resource materials terminates with immediate effect upon the termination of PT’s services to you.
