As a student, when you enroll in a class, whether it’s a free or paid class, you are getting from the Site a license to view the class via the Site, and www.skill-surfing.com is the licensor of record. Classes are licensed, and not sold, to you.

We generally give a lifetime access license to our students when they enroll in a Class. However, for liability reasons we consider that the legal access expires in a year and we reserve the right to revoke any license to access and the use of Classes at any point in time in the event where we decide or are obligated to disable access to a class due to legal or policy reasons, for example, if the class you enrolled in is the object of a copyright complaint, or if we determine its Content violates our terms. To be clear, the access is to the class Content but not to the instructor (outside of the class).
