Using CTB

Who May Use our Services

You may use our Services only if you can form a binding contract with CTB, and only in compliance with these Terms and all applicable laws. When you create your CTB account, and subsequently when you use certain features, you must provide us with accurate and complete information, and you agree to update your information to keep it accurate and complete.

You may download content from our Services only for your personal, non-commercial use, unless you obtain CTB's written permission to otherwise use the content. You also agree that you will create, access, and/or use only one user account, and you will not share with any third party access to or access information for your account. Using our Services does not give you ownership of any intellectual property rights in our Services or the content you access.

Our Challenges and Material

Course Modifications

While we take pride in our world-class challenges, unexpected events do occur. CTB reserves the right to cancel, interrupt, or reschedule any challenge or to modify any content or the point value or weight of any assignment or other assessment. Challenges offered are subject to the Disclaimers and Limitation of Liability sections below.

No Academic Credit

Unless otherwise explicitly indicated by a credit-granting institution, participation in or completion of a challenge 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 course unless you have earned a Course Certificate (or other equivalent CTB credential) for that course. CTB, the course instructors, and the associated participating institutions have no obligation to have a course recognized by any educational institution or accreditation organization.

Disclaimer of Student-University Relationship

Nothing in these Terms or otherwise with respect to your participation in any other competition or similar challenge: (a) establishes any relationship between you and any educational institution with which CTB may be affiliated; (b) enrolls or registers you in any educational institution, or in any competition offered by any educational institution; or (c) entitles you to use the resources of any educational institution beyond participation in the course.

Your Content

User Content

The Services enable you to share your content, such as reading report, projects, and other assignments you submit. You retain all intellectual property rights in, and are responsible for, the User Content you share.

How CTB and Others May Use User Content

To the extent that you provide User Content, you grant CTB a fully-transferable, royalty-free, perpetual, sublicensable, non-exclusive, worldwide license to copy, distribute, modify, create derivative works based on, publicly perform, publicly display, and otherwise use the User Content. This license includes granting CTB the right to authorize participating institutions to use User Content with their registered students and on-campus learners independent of the Services. Nothing in these Terms shall restrict other legal rights CTB may have to User Content, for example under other licenses. We reserve the right to remove or modify User Content for any reason, including User Content that we believe violates these Terms.

Feedback

We welcome your suggestions, ideas, comments, and other feedback regarding the Services ("Feedback"). By submitting any Feedback, you grant us the right to use the Feedback without any restriction or any compensation to you. By accepting your Feedback, CTB does not waive any rights to use similar or related Feedback previously known to CTB, developed by its employees or contractors, or obtained from other sources.

Your personal identity will not be publicly disclosed in any research findings without your express consent.

Paid Services

Paid Services

CTB offers paid Services for a fee. Unless otherwise stated, all fees are quoted in RMB. You are responsible for paying all fees and applicable taxes in a timely manner with a payment mechanism associated with the applicable paid Services. If your payment method fails or your account is past due, we may collect fees using other collection mechanisms. Fees may vary based on your location and other factors, and CTB reserves the right to change any fees at any time at its sole discretion. Any change, update, or modification will be effective immediately upon posting through the relevant Services. Refunds may be available for paid Services as described in our Refund Policy.

Modifying and Terminating our Services

We are constantly changing and improving our Services. We may add or remove functions, features, or requirements, and we may suspend or stop a Service altogether.

YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT THE DISCLAIMERS AND THE LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY SET FORTH IN THIS TERMS OF USE REFLECT A REASONABLE AND FAIR ALLOCATION OF RISK BETWEEN YOU AND THE CTB PARTIES, AND THAT THESE LIMITATIONS ARE AN ESSENTIAL BASIS TO CTB'S ABILITY TO MAKE THE SERVICES AVAILABLE TO YOU ON AN ECONOMICALLY FEASIBLE BASIS.

YOU AGREE THAT ANY CAUSE OF ACTION RELATED TO THE SERVICES MUST COMMENCE WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER THE CAUSE OF ACTION ACCRUES. OTHERWISE, SUCH CAUSE OF ACTION IS PERMANENTLY BARRED.

Severability; Waiver

If it turns out that a particular provision of these Terms is not enforceable, this will not affect any other terms.

We reserve the right to suspend, disable, or terminate the accounts of users who repeatedly infringe or are repeatedly charged with infringing the copyrights, trademarks, or other intellectual property rights of others.

The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the "DMCA") provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the Internet infringes their rights under U.S. copyright law. If you would like to read the DMCA, please visit the U.S. Copyright Office website at http://www.copyright.gov/legislation/dmca.pdf.

If you believe in good faith that materials on the Services infringe your copyright, the DCMA provides that you (or your agent) may send us a notice requesting that the material be removed or access to it blocked.

The notice must include the following information:

1. the physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed; 2. identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed (or, if multiple copyrighted works located on the Services are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works); 3. identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or the subject of infringing activity, and information reasonably sufficient to allow CTB to locate the material on the Services; 4. the name, address, telephone number, and email address (if available) of the complaining party; 5. a statement that the complaining party has a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and 6. a statement that the information in the notification is accurate and, under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.

We suggest that you consult your legal advisor before filing a notice. Also, be aware that there can be penalties for false claims under the DMCA.

CTB also respects the trademark rights of others. Accounts with any other content that misleads others or violates another's trademark may be updated, suspended, disabled, or terminated by CTB in its sole discretion. If you are concerned that someone may be using your trademark in an infringing way on our Services, please email us at ask@chinathinksbig.com, and we will review your complaint. If we deem appropriate, we may remove the offending content, warn the individual who posted the content, and/or temporarily or permanently suspend or disable the individual’s account.
