Language Link guarantees that every credit card transaction you make at Language Link is 100% secure. If at any time you wish to check on the status of your subscription, please login and visit the “My Account” page in your Login area.

Your language course contains teacher-led classes. Group classes and private classes are delivered on a “class credit basis”, giving you access to the stated amount of group classes and private classes that your language course offers. You can always find current prices of language courses posted in the checkout pages and occasionally in other pages of our website. The exact contents of your language courses are clearly set forth and accessible at all times in the logged-in section of the Site under “My account”.

All language course fees are recurring and non-refundable after your purchase. If you do not cancel your language course before the end of the stated course time, you agree to the automatic extension of your language course for the same time and the same terms. If you do not wish to continue your language course, you have to deactivate your account in the “My Account” page in your login area or give us written (email) notice.

This 7-day money-back guarantee does not apply to any trial packages or subsequent subscriptions.

In addition to the classes included in your language course, you can purchase additional classes. These classes give you the right to take more teacher-led classes. Additional classes, whether group or private, those sessions are delivered on a “class credit basis” over a period of 3 months, this means that if you haven’t used those sessions by the end of 3 months after purchasing the class package, those unused sessions are lost to you and will not be refunded.

In case of a cancellation: A scheduled lesson with a teacher must be canceled at least 48 hours before the actual appointment for the lesson. Otherwise, the arranged hour is going to be deducted from the purchased lesson package, without any further announcement or refund.

Virtual classrooms like any other classroom have limited capacity. Demand for Spanish classes is very high, and late cancellation may prevent other students from obtaining a spot in classes.

Subscription cancellations : you may cancel your membership subscription at any time by following the procedure on “cancel subscription” section on your account billing page.

Any action or attempt to avoid providing these fees according to the Language Link booking policy or to arrange or attempt to arrange lessons outside the Language Link platform is strictly prohibited and will result in closing the student’s account, and legal action might be taken for the recovery of the amount of money deemed owing. We reserve the right to alter or amend these fees at any time. All prices displayed publicly on mylingokids.com are inclusive of all fees.

According to our policy, each student should have his/her own lesson package and the lessons of a package cannot be split between students. 

 

12. Video Recording Policy

Sessions between language tutors and students will be recorded to ensure the quality and safety of the language courses. Parents will be asked to formally agree to the recording term by clicking at the corresponding box before registering themselves and their child/children at the Language Link platform. If a registered student/parent does not agree to comply with this term, he/she is advised not to click on that box.

The video recording will remain on the Language Link website for three months. By the end of this period, the only ones who are permitted to have access to the video material are the parents and language students that are registered on the Language Link website, as well as the Language Link language tutors and administrative team. As soon as the period of three months ends, the video recordings will be permanently deleted.

No one except the aforementioned parties is permitted to have access to the video recording. No other use except for ensuring the quality of sessions and student’s safety by uploading the video recordings at the Language Link website is permitted without parents’ written permission. All registered users (both students and their parents) agree not to post, distribute, or publish the video recordings. Violation of this agreement conditions by any registered user will result in the termination of that users’ registration and will result in notifying the authorities and possibly taking legal action.

All registered language tutors agree not to engage in or promote any activity to arrange lessons with a language student outside the MyLanguageLink.com website.

Failure of a registered language tutor to adhere to these terms and conditions and in particular any action whatsoever taken by a registered language teacher with the objective of privately arranging tuition time with a registered Language Link language student, avoiding to provide the booking fee to the MyLanguageLink.com website, may result in the termination of the cooperation between the Language Link platform and the language teacher that committed this action, as well as excluding the particular language student from his/her rights to use the MyLanguageLink.com website again and/or legal action against that language tutor and/or the language student and/or his/her parent might be taken.
