By accessing and using the Platform, you agree to be bound by these Terms as defined by Dataloca Academy Inc. and its affiliates, as applicable (collectively “Dataloca,” “we,” or “our”), as well as our Privacy Policy, which is an integral part of these Terms.

The Platform is only accessible to users who can legally enter into contracts under applicable laws.

Any other use is strictly prohibited. You may not reproduce, redistribute, transmit, assign, sell, broadcast, rent, share, lend, modify, adapt, edit, or otherwise transfer or use any content, nor create derivative works or grant a sublicense thereof without having received explicit authorization from us in writing signed by an authorized representative of Dataloca. Dataloca reserves the right at any time to revoke any license allowing access to any product or Documentation and its use if Dataloca decides or is required to disable access to such product or Documentation for reasons of conflict with the law or its policies (e.g., copyright infringement complaints). You understand and agree that the content is provided to you under license; it is not sold to you. This license does not grant you the right to resell the content or Documentation in any way (including by sharing account information with a buyer or by illegally downloading the content and then sharing it on illegal download sites).


2.1 Account Creation. To access online training and Documentation, the Platform requires the creation of a user account. By creating a user account, you agree to provide Dataloca with truthful and complete information about yourself as required by the registration process.

In case of violation of this obligation, Dataloca may terminate your license to use the Platform and Documentation at its sole discretion.

2.2 Account Responsibility. You are solely responsible for ensuring and maintaining the confidentiality of your password and username. Additionally, you are solely responsible for all activities occurring on or through your account. You agree to immediately notify Dataloca of any unauthorized activity on your account or any other security breach.

2.3 Account Security. Although we use security measures to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee that unauthorized third parties will never be able to circumvent the Platform’s security measures or make illegal use of personal information. You acknowledge that you provide your personal information at your own risk.

2.4 Dataloca’s Responsibility. To the extent permitted by law, Dataloca cannot be held liable for any loss or damage, including data loss associated with your account, that you may suffer as a result of another person’s use of your password, username, or account, with or without your consent. You may also be liable for losses incurred by Dataloca or a third party due to the use of your account, username, or password by another person.

You understand and acknowledge that it is your responsibility to make appropriate decisions based on your expertise and knowledge. Dataloca’s liability, its affiliates, directors, employees, agents, licensors, or successors and assigns to you or any third party is limited in all circumstances to the greater of one hundred dollars (100 CAD) or the amount you paid in the twelve (12) months preceding the event giving rise to your claims. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, so some of the above exclusions may not apply to you.

Dataloca may assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter for which you have agreed to indemnify Dataloca, and you agree to assist and cooperate with Dataloca in the defense or settlement of these matters.



  1. The Platform and Documentation may contain hyperlinks to external websites that cause you to leave the Platform or Documentation (the “External Sites”). You acknowledge and agree that Dataloca is not responsible for the availability of these External Sites, nor for the accuracy of the content, products, or services available on these External Sites. The hyperlinks to External Sites do not imply that Dataloca endorses or approves these External Sites. You acknowledge that you assume all risks arising from your use of External Sites. By using the Platform and Documentation, you expressly release Dataloca from any liability arising from your use of any External Site, and you are bound by the terms of use and privacy policy applicable to those External Sites.

15.7 Waiver; Severability. The failure of Dataloca to enforce any right or provision of the Terms will not constitute a waiver of future enforcement of that right or provision. The waiver of any such right or provision will be effective only if in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of Dataloca. Except as expressly set forth in the Terms, the exercise by Dataloca of any of its remedies under the Terms will be without prejudice to its other remedies under the Terms. If for any reason a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of the Terms invalid or unenforceable, the other provisions of the Terms will remain in full force and effect.
