Terms of Use

Welcome to Talk to Ri ("Talk to Ri"). Our website located at https://talktori.com (the "Site"). Please read these Terms of Use (the "Terms") and our Privacy Policy carefully because they govern your use of our Site and our language learning services, accessible via our Site and mobile device application (the "App"). To make these Terms easier to read, our Site, services and App are collectively called the "Services".

  1. Agreement to Terms

    By using our Services, you agree to be bound by these Terms and by our Privacy Policy. If you don't agree to be bound by these Terms, do not use the Services;
  2. Privacy Policy

    Please refer to our Privacy Policy for information on how we collect, use and disclose information from our users. You acknowledge and agree that your use of the Services is subject to our Privacy Policy.

    IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING ARBITRATION: WHEN YOU AGREE TO THESE TERMS YOU ARE AGREEING (WITH LIMITED EXCEPTION) TO RESOLVE ANY DISPUTE BETWEEN YOU AND Talk to Ri THROUGH BINDING, INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION RATHER THAN IN COURT. PLEASE REVIEW CAREFULLY SECTION 15 "DISPUTE RESOLUTION FOR CONSUMERS" BELOW FOR DETAILS REGARDING ARBITRATION (INCLUDING THE PROCEDURE TO OPT OUT OF ARBITRATION);
  3. Changes to Terms or Services

    We may update the Terms at any time, in our sole discretion. If we do so, we'll let you know either by posting the updated Terms on the Site or through other communications. It's important that you review the Terms whenever we update them because if you continue to use the Services after we have posted updated Terms on the App, you are indicating to us that you agree to be bound by the updated Terms.

    If you don't agree to be bound by the modified Terms, then, except as otherwise provided in "Effect of Changes on Arbitration" section below, you may not use the Services anymore. Because our Services are evolving over time we may change or discontinue all or any part of the Services, at any time and without notice, at our sole discretion;

  4. Who May Use the Services? Eligibility

    You may use the Services only if you are 4 years of age or older, capable of forming a binding contract with Talk to Ri, and are not barred from using the Services under applicable law;

  5. Appstore

    You acknowledge and agree that the availability of the App is dependent on the third party from which you received the App, e.g., the Apple iTunes App Store, and/or other app stores (collectively, "App Stores" and each, an "App Store"). You agree to pay all fees charged by the App Stores in connection with the App. You agree to comply with, and your license to use the App is conditioned upon your compliance with, all applicable agreements, terms of use/service, and other policies of the App Stores. You acknowledge that the App Stores (and their subsidiaries) are a third party beneficiary of these Terms and will have the right to enforce these Terms;

  6. Subscription Fees and Payment

    The App is free to download. However, certain features of the Service are offered on a subscription basis for a fee.

    • You will pay an App Store the applicable fees (and any related taxes) as they become due;
    • To the maximum extent permitted by applicable laws, we may change subscription fees at any time. We will give you reasonable notice of any such pricing changes by posting the new prices on or through the App and/or by sending you an email notification. If you do not wish to pay the new fees, you can cancel the applicable subscription prior to the change going into effect;
    • You authorize the App Stores to charge the applicable fees to the payment card that you submit;
    • By signing up for certain subscriptions, you agree that your subscription may be automatically renewed. Unless you cancel your subscription you authorize the App Stores to charge you for the renewal term. The period of auto-renewal will be the same as your initial subscription period unless otherwise disclosed to you on the Service. The renewal rate will be no more than the rate for the immediately prior subscription period, excluding any promotional and discount pricing, unless we notify you of a rate change prior to your auto-renewal. You must cancel your subscription in accordance with the cancellation procedures disclosed to you for the particular subscription. We will not refund fees that may have accrued to your account and will not prorate fees for a cancelled subscription;
    • We may offer a free trial subscription for the Service. Free trial provides you access to the Service for a period of time, with details specified when you sign up for the offer. Unless you cancel before the end of the free trial, or unless otherwise stated, your access to the Service will automatically continue and you will be billed the applicable fees for the Service. We may send you a reminder when your free trial is about to end, but we do not guarantee any such notifications. It is ultimately your responsibility to know when the free trial will end. We reserve the right, in our absolute discretion, to modify or terminate any free trial offer, your access to the Service during the free trial, or any of these terms without notice and with no liability. We reserve the right to limit your ability to take advantage of multiple free trials;
    • The Service and your rights to use it expire at the end of the paid period of your subscription. If you do not pay the fees or charges due, we may make reasonable efforts to notify you and resolve the issue; however, we reserve the right to disable or terminate your access to the Service (and may do so without notice);
    • Subscriptions purchased via an App Store are subject to such App Store's refund policies. This means we cannot grant refunds. You will have to contact an App Store support.
