To engage in most activities on our platform, you will need an account. Safeguard your password, as you are responsible for all activities associated with your account. If you suspect unauthorized use of your account, contact our Support Team. To use GitLearn, you must have reached the age of consent for online services in your country.
When creating and maintaining your account, it is essential to provide and continuously update accurate and complete information, including a valid email address. You bear full responsibility for your account and all associated activities, including any harm or damage (to us or anyone else) resulting from unauthorized use. Consequently, you must handle your password with care. Account transfer or use of someone else's account is prohibited. If you request access to an account, we will only grant access if you provide the necessary information to prove you are the account owner. In case of a user's death, their account will be closed.
Sharing your account login credentials with others is not allowed. You are responsible for any activities occurring under your account, and GitLearn will not intervene in disputes between students or instructors who have shared login credentials. Immediately notify us if you suspect unauthorized use of your account or any other security breach by contacting our Support Team. We may request specific information to confirm your account ownership.
Students and instructors must be at least 18 years old to create an account on GitLearn and use the Services. If you are younger than 18 but meet the required age for consent to use online services in your country (e.g., 13 in the US or 16 in Ireland), you may not create an account. Instead, we encourage you to ask a parent or guardian to open an account and assist you in accessing age-appropriate content.
