We are committed to protecting such personal data in accordance with all relevant legislation. By accepting these terms and conditions, You indicate Your consent to our use of Your personal data as set out above.

This Access Agreement (the “Agreement”) for the use of Maths-Whizz Teachers’ Resource for Schools is between:-

Service Provider: Whizz Education Limited of Macmillan House, Paddington Station, London W2 1FT, England (“Whizz Education”, “We” or “Us”); and

Customer: You, as the institution having purchased access to use Maths-Whizz Teachers’ Resource for Schools (“You”).

You should note that ‘You’ means You as the single institution or entity (for example, a single school, college or other institution) which has purchased access to the Service, and does not include any affiliates or other entities or institutions which may be connected or affiliated to You. If these other entities or institutions wish to use Maths-Whizz Teachers’ Resource for Schools they must purchase their own access.


Ownership Rights: All rights, title and interest in and to the Service, all components thereof and material therein, any Updates and Upgrades thereof, and any and all copies of the same, are owned exclusively by Whizz Education together with all intellectual property rights in all of the foregoing (including but not limited to copyright, trade marks, database rights, designs and design rights, patents, inventions, know-how, trade secrets, and all other similar rights arising under the laws of any jurisdiction, whether registered or unregistered and including any applications to register the same). As between the parties, Whizz Education owns any suggestions, ideas, enhancement requests, feedback, recommendations or other information provided by You or any other party relating to the Service. Except as expressly provided by this Agreement, You do not have and are not granted any right, title or interest in or to the Service.

Permitted Use and Restrictions: Access to the Service is by a single user name and password for You and Your employees (“School User Details”). You can and You can permit Your employees, students or other persons working or studying within Your institution under Your authority (“Permitted Users”) to:

1. access, retrieve and display the Service and all material available through the Service on a network, server or on one or more personal computers under Your control within the premises of Your institution for internal use within Your institution;

For the purposes of this Agreement, all acts and omissions of Permitted Users shall be deemed to be Your acts and omissions. If We reasonably believe that You and/or Your Permitted Users are, for example, misusing School User Details, we reserve the right to terminate the Service – see Term and Termination below.

These terms apply to You and to all Permitted Users both irrespective of the delivery platform You and the Permitted User(s) use – e.g. desktop PC, laptop, mobile device, PDA or otherwise – and irrespective of how the Service is delivered to You and the Permitted User(s) – e.g. via web browser, WAP browser, email, SMS or otherwise. By accessing the Service and by facilitating access to the Service by your Permitted User(s) you are agreeing that these terms and conditions are binding on You and Your Permitted User(s).

At the end of the Term, this Agreement will automatically terminate and Your access to the Service and that of all Your Permitted Users will be automatically disabled unless You have agreed to extend your Agreement for a new period and have paid the applicable renewal fees by that date.

If You and Your Permitted Users do not continue to do only what You and they are allowed to do as a Permitted Activity under this Agreement or if You and Your Permitted Users do anything which You and they are not allowed to do which is forbidden as a Prohibited Activity, You will be in breach of the Agreement.
