Description of Services

Slader is an independent Web Site supported by millions of students and contributors from all across the globe, designed to help students succeed in their educational endeavors by providing a forum for expression, discussion, and sharing of insights into subject matter covered by the coursework of a broad continuum of educational institutions and formats. Slader strongly believes that online peer-to-peer discussion can serve as a crucial supplement to classroom instructional experience. Slader is not endorsed by any educational institution, association of educators, or textbook author or publisher. Rather, it is an independent forum for speech and scholarship by and for students, and all content should be attributed solely to Slader and its community of users and contributors. To the extent that any parts of Slader’s Web Site reference any textbook or source material, it is for the purpose of discussion and accurate attribution only and is not meant to imply any connection to or affiliation with the authors or publishers of those materials, or to replace or serve as a substitute for classroom instruction or the need to purchase such textbooks or source material. To the contrary, whenever possible, Slader provides users with direct access to links where users can obtain copies of textbooks or other source material. Slader serves as a laboratory for innovation and strives to offer Services that create new outlets for students’ creative expression and tools that aid in the educational process by allowing users to ask questions of one another and benefit from insights derived from Slader’s community of users.

Eligibility. Except as expressly provided below, certain Services and features of the Web Site may only be used by individuals who register for the Web Site (“Registered Users”). Without limitation, Registered Users must be 13 years or older and those less than 13 years old are prohibited from becoming Registered Users. For the purposes of this Agreement, the term “user” refers to visitors of our Web Site as well as Registered Users, i.e. those who register for certain Services provided by Slader. Conversely, Registered Users are limited to those who have registered for certain Slader Services and do not include unregistered users.

User Registration. To become a Registered User, you must create an account with Slader through the online registration process on the Web Site. In creating an account, you must provide Slader with accurate and complete registration information, as prompted in the registration form. You must promptly notify Slader if any of this information changes. If you fail to provide or update this information, Slader may terminate your account or, in certain circumstances, your right to use the Web Site. You agree that Slader may communicate with you by e-mail using the address that you have provided. Slader is not responsible for communications we attempt to make via e-mail that you do not receive because the e-mail address we have on file is incorrect or is no longer being used by you. Slader may offer a Registered User certain rights relating to his or her own account, including the rightto access and delete his or her personal information. To be clear, even if you are a Registered User and successfully submit a verifiable request to delete your personal information, Slader may maintain inactive user records for a certain period of time in the event you choose to renew your account. Slader reserves the right to delete the account of any user who it deems, in its exclusive discretion, to have breached these Terms of Use.

Passwords. When you open an account to become a Registered User, you will be asked to choose a password. You must keep your password confidential. You will be responsible for all uses of your password and account, including, without limitation, any use by any unauthorized third party. By allowing others to access your account, you agree to be responsible for ensuring that they comply with these Terms and you agree to be responsible for their activity using the Services. You must notify Slader immediately if you believe your password or account has been obtained, or may be accessed or used, by anyone other than you. You will not have to reveal your password to any Slader representative. Please notify us via support@slader.com if you suspect any unauthorized use of your account. For security purposes, Slader recommends that you change your password often, that you do not reuse passwords, and that you use unique passwords for this Web Site. Displays of Your Information. Your username and profile picture (optional) will be displayed in connection with any posts you make to the Web Site, and you hereby agree to such use of that identifying information. Slader will not use, display, or otherwise employ your name or profile picture for any purpose other than identifying the posts you make to the Web Site, unless Slader receives your express permission to do so.
