Grant of Licence

In consideration of your payment, we hereby grant you a licence to use the purchased eLearning courses (“the Products”). This licence is revocable, non-exclusive, non-sublicensable and non-transferable, and is subject to the rights and obligations granted under these Terms. 

This licence is personal to you and cannot be shared or exchanged with others. 


We develop, distribute and maintain the Products and will also provide you with log in details. We will also manage your access to the Products and provide support to you, where necessary. 

You shall not copy, modify, transmit, distribute or in any way exploit the Products or any other copyrighted materials provided other than for your individual training. Any other purpose is expressly prohibited under these terms. You shall also not permit anyone else to copy, use, modify, transmit, distribute or in any way exploit the Products or any other copyrighted materials. 

We provide the materials ‘as is’ and without any warranties, whether express or implied, except those that cannot be excluded under statute. We also do not warrant that the materials will be error free, including technical inaccuracies. 

Access to Materials

The starting date of your access to the Product(s) is deemed to be the date of purchase.  

School of Disruption allows you to access to the platform without an expiring date and takes all commercially reasonable steps to provide you with uninterrupted access to the Products but at our sole discretion we can restrict the access to the Products notifying any amendments to the agreement.  

However, your access may be restricted from time to time for reasons beyond our control. Such reasons include force majeure events, power outages and actions from computer hackers and others acting outside the law. Your access may also be interrupted due to software issues, server downtime, increased Internet traffic, programming errors, regular maintenance and other related reasons.  

Where this is the case, we will take commercially reasonable steps to restore your full access within a reasonable period of time. ‘Commercially reasonable’ in these terms shall mean reasonable efforts taken in good faith, without an unduly burdensome use or expenditure of time, resources, personnel or money. 

Our joint aim is to provide courses and materials of the highest quality. As such, improvements or changes to the Products or any other materials may occur at any time without prior notification in order to ensure that they are up to date and accurate. 

No Academic credit

Unless otherwise explicitly indicated by a credit-granting institution, participation in or completion of Content Offerings does not confer any academic credit. Even if credit is awarded by one institution, there is no presumption that other institutions will accept that credit.  

You agree not to accept credit for completing a Content Offering unless you have earned a course certificate or other equivalent documentation of your completion of the Content Offering. School of Disruption, instructors, and the associated Content Providers have no obligation to have Content Offerings recognized by any educational institution or accreditation organization. 

Pricing & Payment

We use third party payment providers, depending on the way in which you make payments – PayPal or Stripe. Payment for the Products must be made at the point of purchase. 

You agree to provide payment for the Products in the stipulated currency and you will be liable to pay any relevant conversion charges, as well as applicable sales tax in your region. Please note that we must receive your payment in full before providing you with access to the Products. 

Your payment includes the licensing of the Products for a limited period of time that is appropriate for the eLearning content. We are unable to provide a refund if you fail to complete the content within the allocated time, except at our absolute and sole discretion. 

We reserve our right to review and change the pricing of any of our products. This will not affect products that have already been purchased. 

Discount Codes

Our website regularly advertises discount codes. If for whatever reason you were unable to use the code on the date of purchase, we can refund the discount upon request IF the code was advertised as valid on the date of purchase. Please contact our support to have more information.

Cancellation Policy

Where Products are delivered to you immediately, you will not have the right to change your mind. In other cases, you may change your mind within fourteen (14) days of purchase, so long as materials have not been provided to you, downloaded, streamed or otherwise accessed. If you do wish to cancel, please contact us via email at support@disruption.school

Under this policy, you may cancel your purchase of the course within the period of 14 calendar days from the date on which the contract of purchase is concluded. This is called a “Cancellation Period”.  

Please note that if more than 40% of any module(s) of the course has been completed during the Cancellation Period, you acknowledge that you lose your right to cancel the purchase of the course and get any refund for it. 

For avoidance doubt, once you have earned a course certificate with your payment, you are not eligible for a refund even if it is within 14 days. 

In case you decide to cancel your purchase of a course, it can be done by contacting support@disruption.school

If you cancel the purchase of a course within 14 calendar days as mentioned above, we will refund you for all payments made as a part of your purchase within 14 calendar days from the day we accept that you are entitled to a refund. 

It is your responsibility to ensure that you meet the system requirements, including compatible hardware, software, telecommunications equipment and Internet service, prior to purchasing any content.  

We are unable to provide refunds where your access to the Products is inhibited due to insufficient system requirements. 

We may restrict your access to the Products if you breach these terms, including without limitation: 

a) A failure to make any payment due to us 

b) Failure to provide accurate information that is necessary for us to provide the Product(s) to you 

In these circumstances, we will inform you in writing with seven (7) days’ notice that your access to the Products will be restricted.

Intellectual Property

Our mission is to provide universal access to the world’s best education. We believe strongly in preserving free speech and expression for our users as well as academic freedom for our Content Providers and instructors. All rights, title and interest in intellectual property rights relating to the Products including copyright, patents, trademarks, trade secrets, improvements, developments, proprietary information, know-how, processes, methods, business plans or models (including computer software and preparatory and design materials thereof) and all other intellectual property (whether registered or not) developed or created from time to time shall exclusively be owned by School of Disruption.  

While you may utilise the intellectual property, you understand that there shall be no transfer of ownership of the same. 

Nothing that you see or read in the Products may be copied, reproduced, modified, distributed, transmitted, republished, displayed or performed for commercial use.

Loss or Damages

We are responsible to you for foreseeable loss and damage caused by us. If we fail to comply with these terms, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking this contract or our failing to use reasonable care and skill. Loss or damage is foreseeable if it is either obvious that it will happen or if we are both aware it might happen, such as where you have discussed the possibility with us during the sales process. 

We are not liable to you in any way for any indirect, special, incidental, punitive or consequential damages of any character, including without limitation damages for loss of goodwill, work stoppage, computer failure or malfunction, loss of data, loss of productivity or contract or any and all other commercial damages or losses. 

Our liability to you for any damage to your computer system or loss of data resulting from the downloading of content is excluded. 

Other Terms

You need our consent to transfer your rights under these terms to someone else. We may not agree to this as these terms grant a licence for your benefit only. 

Nobody else has any rights under these terms – they are between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms. 

If a court finds part of these terms illegal, then rest will continue in force. 

Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date. 

We are not liable to you in any way for any indirect, special, incidental, punitive or consequential damages of any character, including without limitation damages for loss of goodwill, work stoppage, computer failure or malfunction, loss of data, loss of productivity or contract or any and all other commercial damages or losses. 

Our liability to you for any damage to your computer system or loss of data resulting from the downloading of content is excluded.
