If anyone other than yourself accesses your User Account and/or any of your User settings, they may perform any functions available to you, make changes to your User Platform(s) and User Account, and accept any legal terms available therein, make various representations and warranties and more – and all such activities will be deemed to have occurred on your behalf and in your name.
As a result, we strongly advise that you keep the log-in credentials of your User Account confidential, and only allow such access to people you trust. You will be solely and fully responsible for all activities that occur under your User Account and/or User Platforms (including for any representations, warranties and undertakings made therein), whether or not specifically authorised by you, and for any damages, expenses or losses that may result from such activities.
Ownership of your account
You must provide accurate and complete information when registering your User Account and using Sentio Media Services, to which you are the sole and exclusive rights holder. We strongly encourage you to provide your full company/organisation contact and billing details, including a valid e-mail address, as we may use it to identify and determine the actual and true owner of the User Account and/or User Content (as defined below) submitted to us.
We reserve the right to determine ownership to a User Account based on our reasonable judgment, whether or not an independent investigation has been conducted by us. However, if we cannot make such determination (as we may deem in our sole discretion), we reserve the right to avoid doing so, without liability to you or to any other party. Among others, we may consider the principles set forth below.
Please carefully review these principles and consider adapting your practices accordingly, to ensure that what you believe to be “your” User Account and/or User Platform remains as such:
- Sentio Media will consider the owner of a User Account, User Platform and/or User Content created and/or uploaded to the relevant Sentio Media Service, as the person or entity who has access to the e-mail address then listed in Sentio Media records for such User Account under which such User Platform or User Content was created.
- Notwithstanding the forgoing, Sentio Media shall have the right to determine the ownership of User Content and/or a User Website/Mobile App as it chooses, including by ignoring the indications set forth above, in the event that Sentio Media deems, at its sole discretion, that the situation justifies such determination, all based upon the factual situation as determined by Sentio Media.

All rights, title and interest in and to the Sentio Media Services, including any and all copyrightable materials or any other content thereof which is or may be subject to any intellectual property rights under any applicable law (including any artwork, graphics, images, website and mobile app templates and widgets, literary work, source and object code, computer code (including html), applications, audio, music, video and other media, designs, animations, interfaces, the “look and feel” of the Sentio Media Services, methods, products, algorithms, data, interactive features and objects, advertising and acquisition tools and methods, inventions, trade secrets, logos, domains, customised URLs, trademarks, service marks, trade names and other proprietary identifiers, whether or not registered and/or capable of being registered (collectively, “Intellectual Property”), and any derivations thereof, are owned by and/or licensed to Sentio Media Limited.

5. Service Fees
5.1. Paid Services
The use of certain Sentio Media Services may be subject to payment of particular fees, as determined by Sentio Media Limited in its sole discretion (“Paid Services” and “Fee(s)”, respectively). Sentio Media Limited will provide notice of such Fees in relation to such Paid Services. If you wish to receive or use such Paid Services, you are required to pay all applicable Fees in advance.
Sentio Media Limited reserves the right to change its Fees at any time, upon notice to you if such change may affect your existing subscriptions. If you received a discount or other promotional offer, Sentio Media Limited shall have the right to automatically and without notice renew your subscription to such Sentio Media Limited Service(s) at the full applicable Fee. In circumstances where your subscription is not automatically renewed, Sentio Media Limited reserves the right to apply the full applicable fee to any new contract entered into between you and Sentio Media Limited.
All Fees shall be deemed to be in GBP, except as specifically stated otherwise in writing by Sentio Media Limited. To the extent permitted by law (and unless specified otherwise by Sentio Media Limited in writing), all Fees are exclusive of all taxes (including value added tax, sales tax, goods and services tax, etc.), levies or duties imposed by taxing authorities (“Taxes”), and you shall be responsible for payment of all applicable Taxes relating to your use of the Sentio Media Services, or to any payments or purchases made by you. If Sentio Media Limited is obligated to collect or pay Taxes for the Fees payable by you, and whether or not such Taxes were added and collected from you for previous transactions, such Taxes may be added to the payment of any outstanding Fees and will be reflected in the Invoice for such transaction. We recommend that you verify the existence of any additional fees you may be charged by third parties in connection with the purchase of Paid Services or in connection with the renewal thereof (such as international transaction fees, currency exchange fees or fees due to banks or credit card companies). Sentio Media Limited is not responsible for any such additional fees or costs.
As part of registering or submitting information to receive Paid Services, you also authorise Sentio Media Limited (either directly or through its affiliates, subsidiaries or other third parties) to request and collect payment (or otherwise charge, refund or take any other billing actions) from our payment provider or your designated banking account, and to make any investigations Sentio Media Limited or its affiliates may consider necessary to validate your designated payment account or financial information, in order to ensure prompt payment, including for the purpose of receiving updated payment details from your payment, credit card or banking account provider (e.g., updated expiry date or card number as may be provided to us by your credit card company).
5.3. Subscription Renewals
In order to ensure that you do not experience any interruption or loss of services due to the lapse of any particular subscription period, you must ensure that any subscription is renewed by you prior to any existing subscription period ending. In order to avoid any interruptions or loss of services due to failure to process renewal charges prior to the expiration of the subscription period then in effect, we reserve our right (but shall not be obligated) to charge for the upcoming renewal period up to two (2) weeks before such renewal period actually commences. In the event of failure to collect the Fees owed by you, we may in our sole discretion (but shall not be obligated to) retry to collect on a later time, and/or suspend or cancel your User Account, without further notice.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the foregoing, you are and shall be solely responsible to verify and ensure the successful renewal of the Services you use (whether or not such Sentio Media Services are subject to automatic subscription renewals). Accordingly, you shall be solely responsible with respect to any discontinuation of any Sentio Media Services previously purchased by you, including due to a cancellation, failure to charge the applicable recurring Fees, or due to any Sentio Media Services not being subject to automatic subscription renewals. You acknowledge and agree that you shall not have any claims against Sentio Media Limited in relation to the discontinuation of any Sentio Media Services or Third-Party Services, for whatever reason.
5.4. Cooling off period
If you are not satisfied with the Sentio Media Services that are subject to a Fee for a period of service or subscription commitment and which is your initial purchase of such service, you may provide notice of cancellation for any reason within fourteen (14) business days of having first ordered or activated such Sentio Media Services (the “Refund” and “Refund Period”). The Refund is applicable only to the initial purchase of Sentio Media Services. The Refund is not applicable to any additional purchases, upgrades, modification or renewals of Sentio Media Services. If you reside in a jurisdiction which requires a longer Refund Period, we will of course be happy to accommodate such requirements in accordance with all applicable laws. If Sentio Media Limited receives such notice within such Refund Period, Sentio Media Limited will refund to you the amount charged for such Sentio Media Services, in the currency you were originally charged in, and cancel them accordingly. Please note that the Refund amount may be different than the amount you were charged due to currency changes and third-party fees. Sentio Media will not be responsible for any differences caused by change of currency exchange rates or fees you were charged by third parties. After the Refund Period, the Fees paid by you are non-refundable and non-cancellable. In addition, if we find that a notice of cancellation has been given in bad faith or in an illegitimate attempt to avoid payment for services actually received and enjoyed, we reserve our right to still charge the User who provided such notice for any Sentio Media Services actually received, as permitted by law.
Please note: Certain services purchased on or through the Sentio Media Services may be non-refundable. These include Third Party Services such as third party business tools and applications. The terms of each purchased service or application are indicated on the mySchoolApp Website and/or as part of or during the process of purchasing such services or applications. It is your obligation to verify your ability to cancel a service prior to purchasing it. Sentio Media Limited will not refund any amounts paid for non-refundable Paid Services, applications or Third Party Services.
If, at any time, we record a decline, chargeback or other rejection of a charge of any payable Fees on your Sentio Media or mySchoolApp account (“Chargeback”), this will be considered as a breach of your payment obligations hereunder, and your use of the Sentio Media or mySchoolApp Services may be automatically disabled or terminated.
In the event a Chargeback is performed, your User Account may be blocked without the option to re-purchase or re-use it at the sole discretion of Sentio Media Limited, and any data contained in such User Account, including any content, uploaded detail, applications and Third Party Services may be subject to cancellation and Capacity Loss (as defined in Section 6.3 below).
Your use of the Sentio Media Services will not resume until you re-subscribe for any such Sentio Media Services, and pay any applicable Fees in full, including any fees and expenses incurred by Sentio Media Limited and/or any Third Party Services for each Chargeback received (including Fees for Sentio Media Services provided prior to the Chargeback, handling and processing charges and fees incurred by the payment processor).
If you have any questions or concerns regarding a payment made to Sentio Media Limited, we encourage you to first contact our Customer Support team before filing a Chargeback or reversal of payment, in order to prevent the Sentio Media Services from being cancelled and your User Account being blocked, and to avoid the filing of an unwarranted or erroneous Chargeback, which may result in your being liable for its applicable Fees, in addition to re-payment of all the Fees applicable to the Sentio Media Services purchased (and charged-back) by you.
We reserve our right to dispute any Chargeback received, including by providing the relevant credit card company or financial institution with any information and documentation proving that the User responsible for such Chargeback did in fact authorise the transaction and make use of the services rendered thereafter.
6.1. Cancellation by User
You may discontinue to use and request to cancel your User Account and/or any Sentio Media Services at any time, in accordance with the instructions available on the Sentio Media or mySchoolApp Services website and/or platforms. The effective date and time for such cancellation shall be the date and time on which you have completed the cancellation process on the Sentio Media Services, and the effective date for cancellation of Paid Services shall be at the end of such Paid Services’ subscription period. No Fees paid in respect of Paid Services shall be refunded where a cancellation request is submitted prior to the end of that subscription period.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the foregoing, with respect to automatically-renewed subscriptions to Paid Services, such subscriptions will be discontinued only upon the expiration of the respective period for which you have already made payment.
6.2. Cancellation by Sentio Media Limited
Failure to comply with any of the Sentio Media Terms and/or to pay any due Fee shall entitle Sentio Media to suspend (until full payment is made) or cancel your User Account and User Platform (or certain features thereof), as well as the provision of any related Sentio Media or mySchoolApp Services (e.g., Paid Services) or Third Party Services to you.
No Fees paid in respect of Paid Services shall be refunded in cases where Sentio Media Limited feel it appropriate to suspend or cancel your user account.
6.3. Loss of Data, Content and Capacity
If your User Account or any Sentio Media or mySchoolApp Services or Third Party Services related to your User Account are cancelled (whether at your request or at Sentio Media’s discretion), it may cause or result in the loss of certain content, features, or capacity of your User Account, including any User Content, End User data or other usage data retained therein, and including any app name reservation or registration that was included in such Services (“Capacity Loss”). Sentio Media shall not be liable in any way for such Capacity Loss, or for saving a backup of your User Account, User Content or End User data. Please also note that additional Fees may apply for re-activation of a User Account and/or any Sentio Media or mySchoolApp Services following their cancellation, as determined by Sentio Media in its sole discretion.
The Sentio Media Services may also include certain features which enable you to sell goods, content, media and services through your User Platform (“User Products”, and collectively – “E-Commerce”).
