Registration Terms

Terms of Registration

The term 'LiquidFractal' or 'us' or 'we' refers to the owner of the website whose physical address is PO Box 11157, Frankston, Victoria 3199 AUSTRALIA.  LiquidFractal's Australian Business Number is ABN 14 381 107 723.  The term 'you' refers to the user or viewer of our website.  The term 'Tutor Client' refers to any individual who has purchased tuition services of any kind, including (but not limited to) Learning Domains.  The term "Client" refers to any individual who purchases any service offered by LiquidFractal which is not specifically related to tuition (although Clients may purchase both services if they wish).

Although we attempt to notify as soon as possible of changes to these terms, they are subject to change without notice.

The use of this website and its paid or unpaid services is subject to the following terms of use:

  • Registration on the website is mandatory for Tutor Clients and Clients.  This is for the purposes of record maintenance and the generation of invoices for services rendered.  We remind Tutor Clients and Clients that their information is protected by our Privacy Policy, viewable on the website.
     
  • If a Tutor Client or Client does not register on the site after purchasing services, LiquidFractal reserves the right to register said Tutor Client or Client under the name and email address used for the original purchase.  This is necessary for record keeping and generation of invoices in LiquidFractal's fulfillment of our contractual obligation to Tutor Clients and Clients.  This registration does not nullify or otherwise affect the Tutor Client or Client's responsibility for all website activity registered under the registered user name.  Nor does this registration grant any special privileges or alter the status of the Tutor Client or Client in any way.
     
  • If a Tutor Client or Client is registered by LiquidFractal, they will be opted-in to receiving newsletter emails from LiquidFractal regarding special offers and/or news.  Tutor Clients or Clients may opt-out of these emails at any time by adjusting their Notification Settings.
     
  • All Members and Clients are solely responsible for the security of their website passwords and all activity on the website registered under their account.  If there is suspicion that a password has been compromised, all Members and Clients are encouraged to change or reset their passwords using the function provided on the website.  If there are further issues regarding password integrity, they are encouraged to contact us for assistance.

For Tutoring Clients and Other Clients as Applicable

In addition to all other policies on this website, Tutoring Clients accept the following Terms of Service:

  • LiquidFractal accepts payment in Australian Dollars (AUD).  Other currencies may be available on request.
     
  • Availability is strictly on a first come, first served basis.  LiquidFractal does not guarantee availability at a given time unless said time is scheduled and paid for in advance.  Purchasing a session at a specific time (e.g. Thursday 5-7pm) does not guarantee the future availability of that weekly time slot unless scheduled and paid for in advance.  During peak periods (e.g., exams, VCE finals) it is especially important to book in advance.
     
  • Public holidays: I do not guarantee availability over public holidays, and surcharges may apply for tutoring sessions scheduled on holidays (even if booked in advance). 
     
  • All payment for tuition services is due in advance or, in the case of in-person sessions, in cash upon meeting before the session begins.  I will not conduct sessions if payment has not been made or cannot be made at the time of meeting.  In such cases, should the Client wish to pursue future sessions they will be required to pay a penalty fee of AUD$10 to cover travel fees related to the defaulted session.  Learning Domains will be activated upon receipt of payment.
     
  • Refunds will only be given for tutoring appointments missed by Liquidfractal or cancelled by the Tutor Client within 24 hours of the appointed meeting time.  Refunds for Learning Domains will only be given if a cancellation request is received within three (3) days of the Domain's creation.  All refunds will be given using the original method of payment.
     
  • Clients who repeatedly cancel without giving adequate notice (outlined above) may be denied further services without notice, or may be required to pay a penalty fee to resume services.
     
  • Unless otherwise agreed to, a Tutor Client's account is to be used only by the individual who is registered in that name on the website.  Sharing an account with other individuals constitutes grounds for the immediate suspension and possible termination of said account without refund.
     
  • Due to child safety laws, for in-person tutoring sessions involving Tutor Clients under 18 years of age, a parent or legal guardian must be present in the residence for the duration of the session.  This parent/guardian also agrees to provide a signature on the Client Log at the end of the session.  For Tutor Clients over 18 years of age, the agree to sign the Client Log at the end of the session.
     
  • LiquidFractal makes every attempt to achieve a positive outcome for Tutor Clients, but it remains solely the Tutor Client's responsibility to make efficient use of the tools, information, and insights gained from LiquidFractal's tutoring services.  LiquidFractal assumes no responsibility for negative outcomes, test or exam scores and will under no circumstances issue refunds for these reasons.
     
  • Each registered Tutor Client who has not purchased a Learning Domain is granted access to a followup forum for 7 days after their last in-person session.  After this time, if no further sessions are purchased the Tutor Client's status will revert to Member and they will lose access to this followup forum until in-person sessions are purchased.  Upon the purchase of further in-person sessions , status will be restored to Tutor Client and access to the followup forum will renew for the aforementioned period.
     
  • Please confine your essay, homework or project-related questions and concerns to your forums topic or Learning Domain.  LiquidFractal reserves the right to move, hide, or delete project-specific questions which are posted in public areas of the site not reserved for Tutor Clients.  In such cases, the Client may or may not be issued a warning.
     
  • After a Tutor Client's subscription period and/or payment for services has ended, their status on the website will revert from Tutor Client to Member.  They can post/respond to messages and otherwise participate in the community, but will no longer be able to access their private Learning Domain or any other benefits/areas specific to Tutor Clients.  Resuming tutoring services will restore access to the Tutor Client's existing private resources (if any).  Tutor Clients who have reverted to Member status and who choose to purchase tuition services again may be eligible for privileged loyalty rates.
     
  • LiquidFractal reserves the right to suspend or cancel, immediately and without notice, online and/or in-person services for any account whose payment is refused for any reason.  In such cases, access to the person's existing on-site content is left solely to our discretion.  Payment of contracted fees (and penalties, if applicable) may be necessary to restore access to existing content.
     
  • With the exception of in-person tutoring sessions, my contact with Tutor Clients is conducted exclusively through this website and its affiliate sites, if any.  If necessary, phone calls, Skype, email, chat, and other avenues must be arranged with me in advance.  I will not respond to any phone calls, emails, Skype calls, or requests through the aforementioned other avenues regarding project/essay tutoring that have not been prearranged.
     
  • Any breaches of website rules and policies (including but not limited to: abusive behaviour, posting of illegal content, plagiarism, posting of copyrighted material without permission, sharing one's account with someone else) may result in the Tutor Client being permanently banned without refund of paid fees.  If the Tutor Client feels an error has been made, they must appeal in writing by sending notice to LiquidFractal's physical address.
     
  • LiquidFractal makes every effort to notify members and Clients of downtime, and like all websites endeavours to provide as close to 100% uptime as possible.  However, we take no responsibility for acts of God, server-side issues, DDOS attacks or any other unforeseen events affecting client access to the site.  There may also be brief downtime for software upgrades and site backups.  For this reason, members and Clients are encouraged to make regular backups of their content.
