  1. Our Role:

 

We are a link between the Gurus and the Students. We do not have any material role to play except facilitating this platform where the Gurus and the Students get in touch with each other, share the details related to their academic need, schedule their academic sessions both online and offline. For removal of doubt, please note that STS does not perform the tasks or projects or conduct an academic session. We do not hire people on your behalf to teach you. The Gurus are responsible for the performance of these tasks, provided, you decide to connect with them. The Students are and shall always be obliged to check and verify the details of the Gurus, including the details such as past experience, reputation, rating and qualification prior to connecting with them or allowing them a guarantee. It is further clarified that our services are not meant for permanent employment or give rise to, either directly or indirectly, a permanent relationship with the Students or the Platform itself. All the academic needs posted or made available through the platform are temporary in nature wherein the Gurus would assist a student in his or her capacity as an independent contractor.

 

Our platform is like a mutual learning community which also allows the teaching students (Gurus) make some money by engaging in teaching activity. We do not guarantee the identity of any Students or a Guru or ensure that a Students or a Guru will complete his obligations. It is clarified that we are completely a third party with no interest or obligation either to the Students or the Gurus. Our role is strictly limited to that of a facilitator and third-party record-keeper. We are not to be considered a seller of any services on the Platform unless expressly stated otherwise by STS and we do not endorse, promote or represent the truthfulness or accuracy of any statement made on the Platform. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT ALL MEMBERS OF THIS PLATFORM (INCLUDING GURUS) ARE NOT PROFESSIONAL TEACHERS AND YOU SHALL EMPLOY THE SERVICES OF THE PROFESSIONALS TO TEACH YOU THE RELEVANT SUBJECTS WHILE THE GURUS HERE WOULD ONLY HELP YOU UNDERSTAND WHAT HAS ALREADY BEEN TAUGHT BY THE PROFESSIONAL TEACHERS.

 

  1. No Duty To Monitor:

 

You agree that we are not liable to prescreen the academic needs or the content uploaded by others. We have no duty to screen the content that you may supply or post, but we have the right to refuse to post or to edit submitted content. We reserve the right to remove any infringing content for any reason whatsoever at any time without any prior notice.
