(identification number: 02464497), Radhošťská 2004/5, 13000 Prague, Czech Republic (hereinafter, the “Service Provider”) via the Lingua.com website and associated apps (hereinafter, the “Services”). The use of the Services is governed exclusively by these General Terms and Conditions, unless otherwise contractually agreed in individual cases. Conflicting general terms and conditions of the Customer are expressly rejected.

Consumers in the sense of the following regulations are any natural persons who conclude a legal transaction for purposes that can predominantly be attributed neither to their commercial nor to their independent professional activity. Entrepreneurs are any natural or legal persons or partnerships with legal capacity who, when concluding a legal transaction, act in the exercise of their independent professional or commercial activity.

Section 2 - Conclusion of the Contract

1. Basic principles

The Service Provider offers foreign language learning services aimed at learners (for example, students) and/or teachers.

During the term of the Contract, the Customer shall receive the simple, non-transferable and locally independent right to use the Services of the Service Provider (including learning materials and features) exclusively for private purposes. Digital distribution or dissemination is not permitted. Publication is not permitted. Commercial use is not permitted.

For teaching purposes, worksheets made available for download in PDF format may be printed out for a maximum of 30 of the Customer’s students or made available in a closed system. Sources, links, and copyright information may not be removed from the worksheets. Audio files may be played in classrooms or as part of individual instruction.

Products explicitly designed for teachers (for example, “Lingua for Teachers”) may contain special conditions with extended usage rights.

2. Free offers

Because we want to make language learning possible and accessible to many, much content and features are available for free of charge for personal use. Some of this content can be accessed without registering. Customers who wish to have access to more content and features can register a basic account. The registration of a basic account is free of charge and no costs will arise from this registration in the future. This account can be deleted at any time by the Customer or via Customer Support.

3. Paid offers

We also offer premium content, for example, additional learning materials and features. This premium content is clearly marked and can only be accessed after registering for a premium membership. To conclude a premium membership, a payment method must be selected when ordering. The premium membership is concluded by ordering and paying the premium fee.
