Use for Personalization and Pedagogical Improvements.
Our goal is to provide current and future visitors to the UjuziNet Site with the best possible educational experience. To further this goal, we sometimes present different users with different versions of course materials and software. We do this to personalize the experience to the individual learner (to assess the learner’s level of ability and learning style, and present materials best suited to the learner), to improve our understanding of the learning process, and to evaluate and improve the effectiveness of our course materials, payment models, platform features, and offerings. We may publish or otherwise publicize results from this process, but, unless otherwise permitted under the PrivacyPolicy, those publications or public disclosures will not include your personal information.
User Postings Representations and Warranties.
By submitting or distributing your User Postings, you affirm, represent, and warrant (1) that you have the necessary rights, licenses, consents, and/or permissions to reproduce and publish the User Postings and to authorize UjuziNet and its users to reproduce, modify, publish, and otherwise use and distribute your User Postings in a manner consistent with the licenses granted by you below, and (2) that neither your submission of your User Postings nor the exercise of the licenses granted below will infringe or violate the rights of any third party. You, and not UjuziNet, are solely responsible for your User Postings and the consequences of posting or publishing them.
License Grant to UjuziNet and the Members.
By submitting or distributing your User Postings, you hereby grant to UjuziNet and the Members (as described below) a worldwide, non-exclusive, transferable, assignable, sub licensable, fully paid-up, royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable right and license to host, transfer, display, perform, reproduce, modify, distribute, redistribute, relicense, and otherwise use, make available, and exploit your User Postings, in whole or in part, in any form and in any media formats and through any media channels (now known or hereafter developed).
CERTIFICATES AND OTHER PRODUCTS & SERVICES
From time to time, UjuziNet and the colleges, universities, and other institutions providing courses and programs on the UjuziNet Site (collectively, the "Members") may offer services and products for a fee (for example, course and program certificates). For anything that you choose to purchase on the UjuziNet Site, you agree to pay all applicable fees when due. As described in the PrivacyPolicy, the processing of your payment information is done by a third-party payment vendor, and you will be routed to a secure payment flow controlled by that vendor to complete the payment transaction. Once your payment transaction is completed, an UjuziNet confirmation page will be displayed, and you will receive a confirmation email with your name, order number, and the payment amount. Please retain this email for your records as this information will be required if you seek a refund from UjuziNet, as described below.
UjuziNet and the Members may offer Verified Certificates of Achievement for courses (a "Verified Certificate") or certificates for programs (for example, a MicroMasters program certificate or diploma Certificate or Undergraduate or graduate Certificates) for learners who, in the Members’ judgment, have satisfactorily demonstrated mastery of the course or program material. Certificates will be issued by UjuziNet under the name of the underlying Member(s) from where the course or program originated, i.e. SUA, UDSM, etc. The decision whether a certificate will be awarded to a given learner will be solely within the discretion of the awarding Member.
Subject to the foregoing, you will be required to pay a fee and complete the ID verification process for Verified Certificates. In order to authenticate your identity for a Verified Certificate, you will be prompted to take a webcam photo of yourself, as well as a photo of an acceptable form of photo ID (described below). Although these items are collected by UjuziNet in accordance with these TOS and the PrivacyPolicy, you should be aware that the actual authentication of your identity is performed by an UjuziNet third-party service provider and this information will be used only for the purpose of verifying your identity. Acceptable forms of photo ID’s are:
In order to be accepted by UjuziNet, your photo ID must:
Unfortunately, if you do not possess a photo ID meeting the criteria described above, UjuziNet is unable to provide you with a Verified Certificate at this time.
Certificates and other purchases on the UjuziNet Site may be eligible for a refund for a period of time (in each case, the “Refund Period”). The applicable Refund Period for some products and services are described below. To receive a refund during the Refund Period, simply unenroll from the course and the refund will be processed automatically. Refunds will be credited to the payment account used for the purchase and may take up to two billing cycles to process. For more info, visit the UjuziNet HelpCenter. If the applicable Refund Period for a purchase has passed, but you believe a refund is warranted, please submit a support ticket via the Contact us form.
To receive a refund with respect to your enrollment in the verified certificate track of a course, you have a period of 14 days after your payment or 14 days after your course starts (up to six months after your payment) whichever occurs later, during which you may withdraw or unenroll from the course by clicking on the unenroll link on the learner dashboard.
To receive a refund with respect to your enrollment in a Professional Education course, you have a period of 2 days after your payment or 2 days after the course starts (up to six months after your payment) whichever occurs later to unenroll from the course by clicking on the unenroll link on the learner dashboard.
For more information about refund options (for example, changing to another course session), you should visit the UjuziNetHelp Center.
Coupon codes and other course entitlements are subject to expiration and any other conditions stated at the time of purchase.
