Teachers set their own prices, availability, and schedule for the Lessons offered through the Platform. Operator reserves the right to audit Lessons for Platform safety and stability purposes.
Operator reserves the right to delete your account or limit or deny you access to the Platform at any time for any reason or no reason.
Your punctuality is of the ultimate importance and is deemed of the essence concerning your use of the Platform for its intended Purpose (taking/giving Lessons).
Scheduling a Lesson. A Student may choose from the list of available Lesson times on a Teacher’s schedule. Alternatively, a Student may contact a Teacher to request other availability, and the Teacher may accept or deny the Student’s availability request at the Teacher’s discretion.
A Student may schedule a Lesson up to 24 hours prior to the Lesson time; or, upon invitation from a Teacher, the Student may schedule a Lesson up until the time of the Lesson is completed.
Payment. Payment by the Student is completed at the time of the Lesson booking for one or multiple lessons and is made to Swar Kala Sangam Performing Arts Pvt. Ltd Payment by the Student creates Platform credit, equivalent to the Rupee amount paid at the time of booking, that the Student may use with the Teacher or with other Teacher(s) or lesson product(s) on Swar Kala Sangam platform (generally, the Student must give at least 24 hours of notice prior to the time of the Lesson to be cancelled if the Student seeks to switch from the originally booked Teacher/Lesson). The Operator will disburse payment to Teacher in the manner described in the Teacher Terms.
Student pays the Lesson price set by the Student’s chosen Teacher for use of the Platform via MasterCard, Visa, or American Express or any online banking method . Student agrees to pay the price set by Teacher for the Student’s chosen Lesson and authorizes Operator to charge Student’s chosen payment provider (MasterCard or Visa) for Student’s use of the Platform in connection with each chosen Lesson, and thus Student agrees to make the corresponding payment using Student’s selected payment method. Operator reserves the right to correct any errors or mistakes that it makes even if it has already requested or received payment. If a Student does not pay the Lesson price at the time the Platform processes payment, as set out above, the Student may be denied access to that Lesson through the Platform.
Rescheduling. Lessons are intended to occur as scheduled. Lessons can be rescheduled with Appropriate Notice. "Appropriate Notice" is at least 24 hours prior to the scheduled Lesson time. In the case of rescheduling a Lesson, the rescheduling party must contact the other party to the Lesson through the Platform’s internal messaging service as soon as reasonably possible and at least 24 hours before the Lesson is scheduled to occur.
Cancellations. Cancellation of a Lesson will take place only in extreme circumstances. To request cancellation, please email support@Swar Kala Sangam.com
Satisfaction Guarantee/Refunds. Any request for a refund of Student payment for a Lesson (a "Refund") will be handled on a case by case basis and is purely at the discretion of the Operator. If, following the Student's Lesson, the Student is dissatisfied with that Lesson, the Student should contact support@Swar Kala Sangam.com within forty-eight (48) hours of the Lesson, and we will work with the Student to reschedule the Lesson, find a different Teacher, and/or refund the Lesson price, to satisfy the Student (the "Satisfaction Guarantee"). Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Satisfaction Guarantee does not apply in any case where the Student misses a Lesson or is late to a Lesson solely due to the Student's own actions.
If a Student is more than ten minutes late to or does not attend a Lesson, and the Student has not rescheduled the Lesson or made other arrangements with the Teacher, the Student will not receive any Refund for the Lesson. Students are encouraged to openly communicate with Teachers and if necessary to seek to reschedule Lessons via the Platform, and to do so as soon as possible with Appropriate Notice. Students who repeatedly cancel Lessons without Appropriate Notice may have their Platform access limited/no longer be allowed to act as a Student, or may be denied access to the Platform.
If a Teacher is unable to provide a Lesson due to a Student’s (i) inadequate hardware or bandwidth or (ii) inappropriate conduct, Operator generally will not provide a Refund to Student. And if a Student feels that a Teacher’s conduct renders the Lesson impossible, the Student should inform the Operator. All such situations, and any discussions concerning Refunds stemming therefrom, will be handled on a case-by-case basis.
The Student may seek a Refund for a Lesson cancelled by a Teacher, or the Student may reschedule the Lesson with the Teacher. Teachers who repeatedly cancel Lessons without Appropriate Notice may have their Platform access limited/no longer be allowed to act as a Teacher, or may be denied access to the Platform.
In the instance when a Refund is granted, it will be processed within a reasonable period of time. To contact the Operator concerning a potential Refund, please contact support@Swar Kala Sangam.com

If the Platform issues promotion codes that allow discounted and/or free access to one or more Lessons (each, a "Promo Code"), such Promo Codes (a) may be revoked at any time by us with or without notice to you, and (b) may be deemed to apply only to a specific teacher at our election with or without notice to you.
