Additionally, a Child User may use the Website if registered through certain educational organizations or, in certain cases (as defined below), by Coaches that have entered into a relationship directly with Lokarpan and through which education organization or Coach the legal parent and/or guardian of such Child User has consented to use of the Website. Further, in certain instances, a Child User may use our Website via one of the third party applications that integrate into or with the Website.

that permit certain Users (such as, for example, representatives of school districts, schools, teachers, and
other educators) to work with students and other Users through the Website in order to provide such students
and other Users with tutorial, educational and other education-related services, and to review and evaluate
educational achievement and progress of such students and other Users (each a “Teacher”). If you
are a Teacher, you must use Lokarpan’s Teacher registration process when registering accounts on the
Website for one or more of your students. IF YOU ARE A TEACHER AND YOU REGISTER AN ACCOUNT FOR A CHILD USER,
YOU REPRESENT AND WARRANT THAT YOU HAVE RECEIVED EXPRESS CONSENT FROM SUCH CHILD USER’S PARENT OR
LEGAL GUARDIAN FOR YOU TO REGISTER THE CHILD USER FOR THE WEBSITE AND FOR YOU TO PROVIDE TO LOKARPAN THE
INFORMATION YOU DISCLOSE IN CONNECTION WITH THE REGISTRATION OF SUCH CHILD USER. WITHOUT LIMITING THE
FOREGOING, YOU FURTHER AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THESE TERMS ON BEHALF OF SUCH CHILD USER, INCLUDING WITHOUT
LIMITATION BEING LIABLE FOR ALL USE OF THE WEBSITE BY THE CHILD USER, FOR SO LONG AS THE CHILD USER IS NOT
OTHERWISE ASSOCIATED WITH OR ASSUMED BY A VALID PARENT USER ACCOUNT. You hereby agree to indemnify, defend
and hold harmless Lokarpan against any and all claims, losses, liabilities and expenses (including

Unless expressly indicated on the Website that a particular item of Licensed Educational Content is made available to Users under alternate license terms, you may not download, distribute, sell, lease, modify, or otherwise provide access to the Licensed Educational Content to any third party.

In certain cases, Lokarpan or its licensors may make available Licensed Educational Content under alternate license terms, such as a variant of the Creative Commons License (as defined below) (each, an “Alternate License”).

6.4 Non-Commercial Use. The Licensed Educational Content and Licensed Educational Code are intended for personal, non-commercial use only. Without limiting the foregoing, and notwithstanding the terms of any Alternate License for such Licensed Educational Content, the Licensed Educational Content may not be used, distributed or otherwise exploited for any commercial purpose, commercial advantage or private monetary compensation, unless otherwise previously agreed in writing by Lokarpan.
(a) Impermissible Uses. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the following are types of uses that Lokarpan expressly defines as falling outside of “non-commercial” use:
the sale or rental of (1) any part of the Licensed Educational Content, (2) any derivative works based at least in part on the Licensed Educational Content, or (3) any collective work that includes any part of the Licensed Educational Content;
providing training, support, or editorial services that use or reference the Licensed Educational Content in exchange for a fee; and
