Terms of Use

If you or your company paid for a single-user license to ECUBED, then this means ONLY YOU ARE ELIGIBLE to take the services and ONLY FOR THE TIME LIMIT ALLOCATED. See Sections 2-4 below.

  1. GRANT OF LICENSE: ECUBED grants you a nonexclusive and limited license to use the Platform products and functionalities for which you have paid the applicable fees solely for your internal business purposes and in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement. The Platform is licensed, not sold, to you. This license does not apply to any other Platform program that may be provided with the Platform application.
  2. FIT USE OF LICENSE: You agree to use the Platform by only one person per license purchased. You may use the Platform only for the number of licenses acquired by you. For example, if you are licensed to use a 1 (one) Personality Test, 1 (one) English Test, and 1 (one)Technical Test you may assign all 3 (three) tests to one participant or 1 (one) test to 3 (three) different participants. You acknowledge the fit report is designed to help inform decision-making around the suitability of candidates for a particular role. This information should only be used in conjunction with other sources of information, such as resume, interview and recommendations, and is not intended to be the sole hiring criteria. A decision about an individual’s suitability to take on a role is determined by several key factors. One factor relates to the capability and experience of the individual to successfully take on and manage the specific challenges of the role. In addition to the individual’s ability to take on the current role it is important to know whether or not the individual has the capacity to take on new challenges and has potential to further progress in their career. The ‘Overall Fit In Test’ rating on the leader board/dashboard page is derived by combining the scores on each of the three instruments used in this assessments (Personality, Language and Technical). The “Fit in Test” ratings shows the ‘Fit In Test’ rating based on that specific instrument. These ratings reflect the evidence collected by the tools during the assessment and comparing this evidence across specific role requirements that underpin successful performance of the role. This report is structured to provide the assessor’s evaluation and rating of the candidate across these different dimensions. A description of the ratings used in this report and what each means is set out below. This report is the professional interpretation of the characteristics and capabilities of the named individual. This information is considered valid for a maximum of two years from the date of the report.
  3. TALENTPRO USE OF LICENSE: You agree to use the Platform service by only one person per license purchased. For example, if you are licensed to use a course in TalentPRO, which has a usage allocation of three (3) months, then the course will expire when you reach this date limit. THIS TIME ALLOCATION IS NOT CUMULATIVE. You can log into the course as many times as you like if the time in the curse is within the allocated calendar date limit. If you have any questions regarding any of these policies, you can contact us at [email protected]

Do not try to transfer or resell the license to our platforms or course in any way. We grant you a limited time access license, except when we must disable the course because of legal or policy reasons. As a student, when you enroll in a course, whether it’s a free or paid course, you are getting a license from ECUBED to view the course via the TalentPRO platform and Services, and ECUBED is the licensor of record. Courses are licensed, and not sold, to you. This license does not give you any right to resell the course in any manner (including by sharing account information with a purchaser or illegally downloading the course and sharing it on torrent sites). In legal, more complete terms, ECUBED grants you (as a participant or organization) a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable license to access and view the courses and associated content for which you have paid all required fees, solely for your personal, non-commercial, educational purposes through the Services, in accordance with these Terms and any conditions or restrictions associated with a particular course or feature of our Services. All other uses are expressly prohibited. You may not reproduce, redistribute, transmit, assign, sell, broadcast, rent, share, lend, modify, adapt, edit, create derivative works of, sublicense, or otherwise transfer or use any course unless we give you explicit permission to do so in a written agreement signed by a ECUBED authorized representative. This also applies to content you can access via any of our APIs.  We generally give a time limit access license to our clients when they enroll in a course. However, we reserve the right to revoke any license to access and use courses at any point in time in the event where we decide or are obligated to disable access to a course due to legal or policy reasons, for example, if the course you enrolled in is the object of a copyright complaint, or if we determine its content violates our Behavior Rules. The time limit access is not applicable to add-on features and services associated with a course. For example, translation captions of courses may be disabled at any time, and eCubed may decide at any time to no longer provide teaching assistance or Q&A services in association with a course. To be clear, the access is to the course content but not to the instructor. Instructors may not grant licenses to students directly, and any such direct license shall be null and void and a violation of these Terms.
