Please read these Terms of Service ("Agreement", "Terms of Service") carefully before using http://www.codementor.io ("the Site") operated by Peeridea, Inc ("us", "we", or "our"). This Agreement sets forth the legally binding terms and conditions for your use of the Site at http://www.codementor.io.

Additional definitions:

Refund Policy & Dispute Resolution
Mentors can refund Clients at any time. The Site offers Clients 100% satisfaction guarantee for first 1:1 live sessions (https://support.codementor.io/hc/en-us/articles/218998578-How-does-the-money-back-guarantee-work-), and if the Client is unsatisfied within reason during a live session, payouts to the Mentor would not be processed for the session.

Code of Conduct
In using our Site and Services, you agree to follow our Code of Conduct. Violation of our Code of Conduct may result in the immediate removal of your access to this site.

Mentors may not:

  • solicit Clients to pay for your services through a Third-Party Platform. If the Client does not pay you, you will be entirely responsible for your choice. If you have questions about the platform fee, please email us at support@codementor.io.
  • create multiple accounts to abuse the Site’s promotional or referral credits, or attempt fraud
  • stalk or harass Clients about their ratings. If you have any concerns about a particular user, please contact us at support@codementor.io.
  • make untruthful claims about your expertise or your ability to help
  • make promises you do not intend to honor (including scheduled sessions, freelance jobs, or tasks).
  • abuse the system's referral credits. Doing so will result in the confiscation of all unpaid payouts.

Clients may not:

  • try to coerce Mentors into receiving payment via a Third-Party Platform in order to circumvent the platform fee. If you do so and the Mentor does not deliver, you will be fully responsible for your loss.
  • create multiple accounts to abuse the Site’s promotional or referral credits, or attempt fraud
  • harass Mentors to provide you with free help
  • lie about an issue being unsolved just to receive a refund. We review every dispute on a case-by-case basis.
  • spam requests or send Mentors messages about things that are unrelated to the Services provided by this Site
  • recruit Mentors to join third party services that are potentially competitive to Codementor. Please contact us at support@codementor.io if you'd like to discuss any partnership.

In general, maintaining civility in communication is encouraged. If you encounter a user who is ruining your platform experience by either spamming you or insulting you, please contact us immediately.

We may terminate your access to the Site, without cause or notice, which may result in the forfeiture and destruction of all information associated with you.
