This is a legal and binding agreement between you, the user (referred to as "user" or "you") of the Programs, as defined below, and Knowledgehut Solutions Private Limited (together with its parent company, subsidiaries, and international affiliates, hereinafter "KH," "us," "we," or "our" or "the Company"), stating the terms that govern your use of the Platform, as defined below. The website www.knowledgehut.com and mobile apps (collectively referred to as the "Platform") and the information, services and other materials contained therein are provided and operated by KH. KH offers curated and specially designed online industry-relevant certification programs and trainings ("Programs").
Each Program may have a separate set of terms dealing with refunds, deferrals, payments, etc. governing such Programs, and our corporate clients may have executed separate written agreements with us, which, in the event of a conflict, will supersede these Terms to the extent of the conflicting provisions.
These Terms shall apply to KH hosted mobile apps, WhatsApp groups, Facebook groups, Instagram pages, Facebook pages, email/SMS/phone communications and other social media forums hosted by KH, which shall be deemed to be part of the 'Platform' by reference. You acknowledge that certain parts of the Platform, as mentioned above, are provided by third-party service providers, and you agree to abide by their terms and conditions. KH shall not be responsible for any disruption of services caused by such third-party service providers.
Although you may "bookmark" a particular portion of the Platform and thereby bypass these Terms, your use of the Platform still binds you to these Terms.
We may change these Terms from time to time without prior notice. You should review this page regularly. Your continued use of the Platform and Programs after changes have been made will be taken to indicate that you have read and accepted those changes. You should not use the Platform or Programs if you are not happy with any changes to these Terms.
Whether you have enrolled in a Program or are simply browsing the Platform, once you have accessed the Platform or Programs, you shall be considered a ‘user’ for the purpose of these Terms. You are responsible for all your activities in connection with the use of the Platform and Programs. You hereby agree to fully comply with all applicable local, provincial, state, national and foreign laws, treaties, and regulations in connection with such use. You shall not resort to any unethical practices while using the Platform.
Without limitation, you will not post or transmit, or cause to be posted or transmitted, any communication or solicitation or other "phishing", "pharming" or "whaling" message designed or intended to obtain password, account, personal information, confidential information or private information from any user of the Platform or any other third party whatsoever. However, if any such event does take place, KH shall not be liable for any loss of data or if the user's device, computer system or any other property is compromised in any manner.
You acknowledge and agree that KH has the right to report any and all such suspicious or illegal activity to the appropriate legal or police authorities without notice to you.
In order to participate in most Platform activities and to apply for a Program, you will need to register for a personal account ("User Account") by clicking through a registration link via registered mail-id pursuant to payment of registration Fees for the selected Program.
Owing to certain exceptional circumstances, if KH has granted you access to a Program pending payment, and KH does not receive payments within the stipulated time periods, KH may, at its own discretion, withdraw your access to the Program without giving any prior notice.
You agree that you will never divulge or share access to your User Account with any third party for any reason. You also agree that you will create, use and/or access only one User Account, and that you will not use any User Account other than your own.
In setting up your User Account, you may be prompted or required to enter additional information, including but not limited to your name and email address. Additional information may be required to confirm your identity. You understand and agree that all information provided by you is accurate, current and complete and that you will maintain and update your information to keep it accurate, current and complete. You acknowledge that if any information provided by you is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, we reserve the right to terminate your use of the Platform and your enrolment into a Program, to the extent applicable.
Access to the Programs is restricted to attendees or students who have specifically been granted access by KH.
Additional requirements apply to Students. As a Student, in addition to the points above, you agree that you are registering with the intent to complete the assignments, if any, that are relevant and applicable to the Platform or Programs into which you have enrolled.
Unless otherwise expressly agreed in writing by KH, full payment for participation in a Program is required at the time of registration. In the case of Programs that include a trial window, such trial window shall be made available only after the full payment. During the trial window, upon a request by the student, and to the satisfaction of KH, KH may, in accordance with the applicable refund policy for the particular Program, choose to refund the Program Fees paid, subject to deduction of such applicable charges for including but not limiting to administrative and marketing expenses, as may be decided by KH from time to time. Once the trial window is closed, there will be no refund allowed for any reason whatsoever. For all the program, where there is no trial window or preparatory session, refund shall be done in accordance with the terms and conditions of refund policy of the respective program. You can access the applicable Refund and Cancellation Policy of KH by clicking here unless otherwise agreed in writing by KH.
It is the sole responsibility of the user enrolling into a Program to check the accuracy of, and evaluate the suitability and relevance of, the Program elected. The enrolment into a Program is non-transferable.
To make payment for any Program or to purchase any services or products offered by KH through the Platform, you must have internet access and a current valid accepted payment method as indicated during sign-up ("Payment Method"). KH does not store any of your credit card information or such other information restricted by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) for processing payment and has partnered with payment gateways for the payment towards the services. By using a third-party payment provider, you agree to abide by the terms of such a payment provider. You agree that in case KH's third-party payment provider stores any such information, KH will not be responsible for such storage, and it will be solely at your discretion to allow the third party to store such information. Any loss of such information or any loss incurred by you due to the usage of such information will be solely a loss incurred by you, and KH is in no way liable for any such losses and is neither responsible to reimburse / make good such losses in any manner whatsoever. You also agree to pay the applicable fees for the payments made through the Platform.
Failure to pay the applicable Program fee may result in withdrawal of your access to a Program. Depending on where you transact with us, the type of payment method used and where your payment was issued, your transaction with us may be subject to foreign exchange fees or exchange rates. KH does not support all payment methods, currencies or locations for payment. All applicable taxes are calculated based on the billing information you provide to us at the time of enrolment/purchase.
If you have subscribed for a free trial, the free trial period will last for the period of time specified during your sign-up. Free trials may not be combined with certain other offers. If you have subscribed to a particular paid service or product within the last six (6) months, or if your Payment Method, physical address, contact number or email address has been associated with an account for that paid service, you are not eligible to receive a free trial for that service or product. If you begin your subscription with a free trial, you may be ineligible for certain features of a product or service during your free trial period.
KH reserves the right to cancel or reschedule any Program or live lectures/webinars, or to alter, modify or rearrange the schedule of topics, as well as the point value or weight of assignments, tests, exams, projects and other such evaluations of progress. You also understand that KH, at its sole discretion, may limit, suspend, or terminate your use of the Platform or Programs and/or all KH-provided services related to the Programs, such as access to KH coaches or support services, evaluation services, or certifications. You also understand that KH may modify or discontinue all services related to its Programs at its sole discretion. You agree that KH shall not be liable to you or to any third party for any such modification, suspension or discontinuance. Nothing in these Terms shall be construed to obligate KH to maintain and support the Platform or Programs or any part or portion thereof or any associated services.
You agree that KH shall be under no liability whatsoever to you in the event of non-availability of the Platform or any portion thereof occasioned by Act of God, war, disease, revolution, epidemic, riot, civil commotion, strike, lockout, flood, fire, satellite failure, failure of any public utility, man-made disaster or any other cause whatsoever beyond the control of KH.
Subject to the applicable refund policy, if you no longer wish to use any program, you may terminate your participation by giving a prior notice to KH.
You shall be exclusively responsible for obtaining and maintaining any equipment or ancillary services needed to connect to, access, receive or use the Platform, including, without limitation, hardware devices, software, and other internet, wireless, broadband, phone and/or other mobile communication device connection services. You shall be exclusively responsible for ensuring that such equipment or ancillary services are compatible with the Platform, and you shall be responsible for all charges incurred in connection with the use of the Platform and Program in connection with all such equipment and ancillary services.

KH may offer a credential or other acknowledgement for participants who have satisfactorily demonstrated mastery of the Program material. The decision to award any such credential acknowledgement to a given participant will be solely at the discretion of KH. KH may choose not to offer any credential or other acknowledgement for some Programs. KH may decide at its sole discretion whether to provide a record concerning a participant's performance in a Program. The format of any credential or other acknowledgement, and of any performance, provided by KH relating to Programs will be determined by KH at its sole discretion and may vary from Program to Program.
You will be awarded a certificate of successful completion of a Program ("Program Certificate") only upon fulfilling the criteria and requirements of KH and its Educational Partners.
You will not receive academic credit from KH or any other Educational Partner for taking a Program. If you are taking a Program for academic credit or certification as a student of, or otherwise through, an Educational Partner, any such credit or certification may only be awarded directly by the Educational Partner based on its own policies and procedures, and you may be required by that Educational Partner to be registered or enrolled with the Educational Partner in order to receive credit or certification; and, in any event, KH will not have any authority or responsibility with respect to any award of academic credit or certification provided by an Educational Partner for a Program.
You acknowledge and agree that any Program affiliated with an Educational Partner may be subject to the terms, policies and procedures of the applicable Educational Partner in addition to KH's Terms. Without limiting the foregoing, if you are a student registered or enrolled at, or are otherwise attending, an Educational Partner and are taking a Program for credit or certification through that Educational Partner, you acknowledge and agree that (a) the Educational Partner may have its own terms, policies or procedures regarding your eligibility to participate in the Program, your participation in the Program, the requirements or prerequisites for receiving credit or certification for the Program, and/or your educational or student records as they may relate to your participation and performance in the Program, and (b) your educational or student records are maintained by the Educational Partner, including for purposes of assigning credit or certification, and not KH.
