The Service and all materials and content available through the Service are provided “as is” and on an “as available” basis. TDA, the TDA participants, and the other entities providing offerings viewable on the TDA site but not offered through the Service (the “other providers”) disclaim all warranties of any kind, whether express or implied, relating to the Service and all materials and content available through the Service, including: (a) any implied warranty of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, title, quiet enjoyment, or non-infringement; and (b) any warranty arising out of course of dealing, usage, or trade. TDA, the TDA participants, and the other providers do not warrant that the Service or any portion of the Service, or any materials or content offered through the Service, will be uninterrupted, secure, or free of errors, viruses, or other harmful components, and TDA, the TDA participants, and the other providers do not warrant that any of those issues will be corrected. Course content may change, and courses may not remain available. No advice or information, whether oral or written, obtained by you from the Service, TDA entities, or other providers or any materials or content available through the Service will create any warranty regarding any of the TDA entities, other providers, or the Service that is not expressly stated in these Terms. We are not responsible for any damage that may result from the Service and your dealing with any other Service user. You understand and agree that you use the Service (and any portion(s) thereof) at your own discretion and risk, and that we are not responsible for any damage to your property (including your computer system or mobile device used in connection with the Service) or any loss of data, including user content.

14.2 No Other Enrollment. 

Nothing in these Terms or otherwise with respect to your participation in any Offering from a Member through the Service results in you being: (a) an applicant for admission to, or enrolled in, any degree or other credit- or credential-bearing program of such Member; and (b) entitled to use any of the resources of such Member beyond the Offerings provided via the Service. 

15. Limitation of liability.

To the fullest extent permitted by law, the aggregate liability of the TDA entities and the other providers to you for all claims arising out of or relating to the use of or any inability to use any portion of the Service or otherwise under these Terms, whether in contract, tort, or otherwise, is shall not exceed the amount you have paid to TDA for access to and use of the Service in the 12 months prior to the event or circumstance giving rise to the claim. 

Each provision of these Terms that provides for a limitation of liability, disclaimer of warranties, or exclusion of damages is intended to and does allocate the risks between the parties under these Terms. This allocation is essential to the bargain between the parties. Each of these provisions is severable and independent of all other provisions of these Terms. The limitations in this Section 15 (limitation of liability) will apply even if any limited remedy fails of its essential purpose.

Purchases through the Service should be considered non-refundable unless explicitly detailed as ‘refundable’.  In such case where that is explicitly declared, the general refund policies for some Offering types are described below; provided, however, that certain Offerings may have different refund policies that apply (e.g., no refunds permitted), which will be presented to you at the point of purchase. Refunds will be credited to the payment account used for the purchase and may take up to two billing cycles to process. For clarity, to the extent you have access to any Offering through a TDA Business arrangement whereby payment for the Offering is made on your behalf through the entity sponsoring your access, such access is not subject to this Refund Policy and is instead governed by the agreement between TDA and the purchasing organization. 

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary below, please note that we have no obligation to offer you a refund after you earn a Certificate for an Offering or if you complete a Course but are unsatisfied with your final grade, in each case, regardless of whether your refund request was received during the applicable refund period. Please also be aware that we treat violations of our Terms of Service and  our Honor Code very seriously, and we reserve the right to refuse your refund request if we terminate your access to the Service (or any portion(s) thereof) for violation of our Terms or any of our policies, even if your request is made in accordance with the applicable refund policy for the Offering. 

If the applicable refund period for a purchase has passed or refunds are otherwise not available for an Offering and you believe a refund is warranted (e.g., as required under local law), please submit a support ticket via email to

18.2 Subscription Offerings. 

TDA does not offer refunds for payments made for annual or monthly Subscription Offerings. 

18.3 Other Products and Services. 

Except as described in this Refund Policy or as explicitly stated at the point of purchase, TDA has no obligation to provide refunds, vouchers, or entitlements for any other product or Service.
