Any interested party may sign up and become a WebCourse member without any cost or further obligation. WebCourse members may study any one of the activated terminology trainers to e-Xplore Terms and they may use selected information and services to e-Xplore Technical English, all without any cost or further obligation. Studying a WebCourse under the label e-Xplore Technical English®, however, includes individual tutoring and is, therefore, bound to membership in a group. WebCourse members who successfully completed one or more terminology trainers under the label e-Xplore Terms® also require a group code to activate their certificate. Group codes may be obtained from the responsible department or authority at many universities. WebCourse members, who want to join certain groups on a voluntary basis, can be charged course fees, especially in cases when the chosen WebCourses are not compulsory parts of their applicable study and examination regulations. ESP (English for Specific Purposes) certificates can be obtained only by WebCourse members who joined a group. Group members, who complete a WebCourse at the required minimum result or better, receive an ESP (English for Specific Purposes) certificate according to the internationally recognised Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEF).
|Our Obligations||Individuals who are eligible for WebCourse membership are entitled to make personal use of all terminology trainers and all free contents offered to e-Xplore Technical English.
All personal data will be handled with the strictest confidentiality. Aside from your English teacher or the examination office of your university, if applicable, no third party will have access to your personal data. Please refer to our privacy statement for more detailed information.
|Your Obligations||WebCourse members agree to use the courses or parts of them exclusively for purposes of personal studies, further qualification and information. You are supposed to study your WebCourse on your own, i.e. without assistance from third parties, their resources or utilities. Individual learner feedbacks and hints on solutions, which you receive in response to your completions of certain parts of your course, must not be shared in public or closed groups of social networks, news forums or (cloud) storage services -- neither during nor at any time after your group membership. In cases of non-compliance or fraud, previously obtained certificates may become invalid.|
|Your Account||Access to WebCourses is free and without any obligation. Just sign up, become a WebCourse member, and study the terminology trainers of your choice -- e-Xplore Terms immediately. Furthermore, you can use selected services and information to e-Xplore Technical English. Note, however, that you will need to join a group if you want to take a WebCourse to e-Xplore Technical English or to earn a certificate.
If you are required to e-Xplore Technical English or to e-Xplore Terms as a compulsory component of your English course at university, you will receive your group code directly from your English teacher or from the department which administrates your studies. If you would like to e-Xplore Technical English to supplement an English course at your university, please ask your English teacher to contact us to make arrangements with our user administration, or contact us directly.
Alternatively, you can request the code, which you need to activate your well-deserved certificate after having successfully e-Xplored Terms, for a small course fee.
|Email for You||We want you to learn as much as possible and pass your course successfully. To this end, we offer you a wide range of tutorial support, part of which is via email. As a WebCourse member, you agree to our sending you an email whenever we feel this would be a valuable support to your individual learning path and your progress in the course.|
|Contact Us||Whenever you contact us, please mark the applicable addressee, so that we can respond as quickly as possible.|
|We are committed to our users' privacy. Before, during and after completion of a course, any transfer or user data shall be solely for the following purposes: course and user administration, appraisal of user performance to be certified, and issue of certificates. We guarantee that no information is divulged to third parties - besides your English teacher or the examination office of your university, if applicable.
