This service is operated by GCELAB.COM, a Sole Proprietorship of "Gurukul of Civil Engineers LTD", incorporated under the Companies Act, 2006 in the United Kingdom.
If you do not accept these Terms, please do not access and/or use our Services.
We may update these Terms at any time. Please review the Terms regularly to ensure you are aware of any changes. Your continued access to and/or use of our Services after changes have been made to the Terms indicates your agreement to be legally bound by the updated and/or amended Terms.
If you have any questions on these terms and conditions, please contact us.
We consider our marketplace model the best way to offer valuable educational content to our users. We need rules to keep our platform and services safe for you, us and our student and instructor community. These Terms apply to all your activities on the GCELAB.COM website, the GCELAB.COM mobile applications, our TV applications, our APIs and other related services (“Services”).
If you live in the United Kingdom, by agreeing to these Terms, you agree to resolve disputes with GCELAB.COM through binding arbitration (with very limited exceptions, not in court), and you waive certain rights to participate in class actions, as detailed in the Dispute Resolution section.
You need an account for most activities on our platform. Keep your password somewhere safe, because you’re responsible for all activity associated with your account. If you suspect someone else is using your account, let us know by contacting us. You must have reached the age of consent for online services in your country to use GCELAB.COM.
You need an account for most activities on our platform, including to purchase and enrol in a course. When setting up and maintaining your account, you must provide and continue to provide accurate and complete information, including a valid email address. You have complete responsibility for your account and everything that happens on your account, including for any harm or damage (to us or anyone else) caused by someone using your account without your permission. This means you need to be careful with your password. You may not transfer your account to someone else or use someone else’s account without their permission. If you contact us to request access to an account, we will not grant you such access unless you can provide us with the login credential information for that account. In the event of the death of a user, the account of that user will be closed.
If you share your account login credential with someone else, you are responsible for what happens with your account and GCELAB.COM will not intervene in disputes between students who have shared account login credentials. You must notify us immediately upon learning that someone else may be using your account without your permission (or if you suspect any other breach of security) by contacting us. We may request some information from you to confirm that you are indeed the owner of your account.
Students must be at least 18 years of age to create an account on GCELAB.COM and use the Services. If you are younger than the required age, you may not set up an account. If we discover that you have created an account and you are younger than the required age, we will terminate your account.
Course Enrolment and Access
When you enrol in a course, you get a license from us to view it via the GCELAB.COM Services and no other use. Don’t try to transfer or resell courses in any way. We grant you an annual subscription-based license, except when we must disable the course because of legal or policy reasons.
As a student, when you enrol in a course, whether it’s a free or paid course, you are getting from GCELAB.COM a license to view the course via the GCELAB.COM platform and Services, and GCELAB.COM 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, GCELAB.COM grants you (as a student) 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 GCELAB.COM authorized representative. This also applies to content you can access via any of our APIs.
We generally give an annual subscription-based access license to our students when they enrol 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 Copyrights.
Use of the Services
You accept that we have no control over the quality, accuracy, reliability, sincerity or integrity of any Documents produced arising from your use of the Services. We cannot guarantee that your use of the Services will increase your chances, prospects or abilities in relation to securing work or employment.
Payments and Subscription Terms
When you make a payment, you agree to use a valid payment method. You agree to pay the fee and you authorize us to charge your debit or credit card or process other means of payment (such as PayPal) for those fees. GCELAB.COM works with third-party payment processing partners to offer you the most convenient payment methods in your country and to keep your payment information secure
When you make a purchase, you agree not to use an invalid or unauthorized payment method. If your payment method fails and you still get access to the course you are enrolling in, you agree to pay us the corresponding fees within thirty (30) days of notification from us. We reserve the right to disable access to any course for which we have not received adequate payments.
You agree to pay fees for our Services. The specific fees for each of our services are set out on our website. You will only be granted permission to use the services you have subscribed to and agreed to pay for. When setting up your account, you agree to provide valid, up-to-date and complete payment, contact and billing details necessary to effect payment of the Fee. We accept payment via debit card, credit card or PayPal.
Where you use our subscription-based Services you accept that:
You understand that where you do cancel your subscription with us, although your subscription will not be renewed for the next subscription period, you will not be eligible for a refund, or pro-rated refund of any portion of the subscription fee paid for your current subscription period.
Where our fees are not payable on a subscription basis, payment of our Fees shall be due and payable prior to the provision of our services and shall be collected using the payment details you have provided us with. We reserve the right to charge, and you agree to reimburse us, for all collection costs and interest for any overdue amounts. We also reserve the right to cancel the provision of or block access to our services at any time until all outstanding payments have been made, and to continue charging you our Fees until you cancel your subscription with us.
We have the right to change our fees at any time. If you do not agree with the change, please cancel your subscription with us. You shall be deemed to have accepted our fee change by continuing to use our Services.
Cancellation of subscription
You can cancel the subscription at any time by contacting us. We may terminate your use of the Services and/or the Platform immediately without any notice to you if you breach these Terms;
if we have any reason to suspect that your use of the Platform or Services is unlawful or would bring us into disrepute; if we believe we are required by law to terminate your use of the Platform or Services; if we withdraw the Platform or Service from service; or in order to protect our legitimate business interests.
On termination, for any reason, all rights granted to you under these Terms shall immediately cease and you must immediately cease all activities authorised by the Terms (including your use of our Materials).
You can only use GCELAB.COM for lawful purposes. You’re responsible for all the content that you post on our platform. We can ban your account for repeated or major offences. If you think someone is infringing your copyright on our platform, let us know.
You may not access or use the services or create an account for unlawful purposes. Your use of the Services and behaviour on our platform must comply with applicable local or national laws or regulations of your country. You are solely responsible for the knowledge of and compliance with such laws and regulations that are applicable to you.
If you are a student, the services enable you to ask questions to the instructors of courses you are enrolled in and to post reviews of courses. For certain courses, the instructor invites you to submit content as “homework” or tests. Don’t post or submit anything that is not yours.
GCELAB.COM is a technology platform that enables Mentors and teachers to create and share educational courses. We host various civil engineering courses in our online learning marketplace. Our marketplace model means we do not review or edit the courses for legal issues, and we are not in a position to determine the legality of course content. However, it is important to us that mentor and teachers posting courses on GCELAB.COM respect the intellectual property of others. When instructors post courses on our marketplace, they make the promise that they have the necessary authorization or rights to use all the content contained in their courses.
If we are put on notice that your course or content violates the law or the rights of others (for example, if it is established that it violates intellectual property or image rights of others, or is about an illegal activity) or if we believe your content or behaviour is unlawful, inappropriate, or objectionable (for example if you impersonate someone else), we may remove your content from our platform. GCELAB.COM complies with copyright laws.
GCELAB.COM has discretion in enforcing these Terms and conditions. We may terminate or suspend your permission to use our platform and services or ban your account at any time, with or without notice, for any violation of these Terms, if you fail to pay any fees when due, upon the request of law enforcement or government agencies, for extended periods of inactivity, for unexpected technical issues or problems, or if we suspect that you engage in fraudulent or illegal activities. Upon any such termination, we may delete your account and content, and we may prevent you from further access to the platforms and use of our Services. Your content may still be available on the platforms even if your account is terminated or suspended. You agree that we will have no liability to you or any third party for termination of your account, removal of your content, or blocking of your access to our platforms and services.
If one of our instructors has published a course that infringes your copyright or trademark rights, please let us know. We require our instructors to follow the law and respect the intellectual property rights of others. Your Content must not: be defamatory, invasive, obscene, pornographic, racist, abusive, harassing, threatening or offensive; be disparaging, belittling or otherwise portray in a negative light any individual featuring in Your Content; infringe any intellectual property or other rights of any entity or person, including violating anyone's copyrights or trademarks or their rights of publicity; violate any law, regulation, rule or code of conduct; and/or impersonate or misrepresent your connection to any other entity or person or otherwise manipulate headers or identifiers to disguise the origin of the content.
You also must not:
include or introduce programs which contain viruses, worms and/or 'Trojan horses' or any other computer code, files or programs designed to interrupt, overload, collapse, destroy or limit the functionality of any computer software or hardware or telecommunications;
copy any other pages or images on the Website except with appropriate authority; and/or disobey any policies or regulations established from time to time regarding use of the Services.
When you use GCELAB.COM, we store, download and share content you create (“Your Content”). For the avoidance of doubt, your Content relates only to content you create and not any content which exists as part of the services.
We do not claim ownership of your content. Your Content remains your content and you are responsible for it. You hereby fully disclaim us from any liability relating to Your Content.
By uploading your content, you automatically and irrevocably:
You retain ownership of the content you post to our platform, including your courses. We’re allowed to share your content to anyone through any media, including promoting it via advertising on other websites.
The content you post as a student or instructor (including courses) remains yours. By posting courses and other content, you allow GCELAB.COM to reuse and share it but you do not lose any ownership rights you may have over your content.
When you post comments, questions, reviews, personal details for CV builder and when you submit to us ideas and suggestions for new features or improvements, you authorize GCELAB.COM to use and share this content with anyone, distribute it and promote it on any platform and in any media, and to make modifications or edits to it as we see fit. In legal language, by submitting or posting content on or through the platforms, you grant us a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free license (with the right to sublicense) to use, copy, reproduce, process, adapt, modify, publish, transmit, display, and distribute your content in any and all media or distribution methods (existing now or later developed). This includes making your content available to other companies, organizations, or individuals who partner with GCELAB.COM for the syndication, broadcast, distribution, or publication of content on other media. You represent and warrant that you have all the rights, power, and authority necessary to authorize us to use any content that you submit. You also agree to all such uses of your content with no compensation paid to you.
Anyone can use GCELAB.COM to create and publish courses and instructors and we enable instructors and students to interact for teaching and learning. Like other platforms where people can post content and interact, some things can go wrong, and you use GCELAB.COM at your own risk.
We do not exercise any editorial control over the courses that are available on the platform and, as such, do not guarantee in any manner the reliability, validity, accuracy or truthfulness of the courses. If you enrol a course, you rely on any information provided by an instructor at your own risk.
By using the services, you may be exposed to content that you consider offensive, indecent, or objectionable. GCELAB.COM has no responsibility to keep such content from you and no liability for your access or enrolment in any course to the extent permissible under applicable law. You acknowledge the inherent risks and dangers in the strenuous nature of these types of courses. You assume full responsibility for the choices you make before, during and after your enrolment in a course.
When you interact directly with a student or an instructor, you must be careful about the types of personal information that you share. We do not control what students and instructors do with the information they obtain from other users on the platform. You should not share personal information about you for your safety.
We do not hire or employ instructors nor are we responsible or liable for any interactions involved between instructors and students. We are not liable for disputes, claims, losses, injuries, or damage of any kind that might arise out of or relate to the conduct of instructors or students.
When you use our services, you will find links to other websites that we don’t own or control. We are not responsible for the content or any other aspect of these third-party sites, including their collection of information about you. You should also read their terms and conditions and privacy policies.
We own the GCELAB.COM platform and Services, including the website, present or future apps and services, and things like our logos, API, code, and content created by our employees. You can’t tamper with those or use them without authorization.
All right, title and interest in and to the GCELAB.COM platform and Services, including our website, our existing or future applications, our APIs, databases, and the content our employees or partners submit or provide through our Services (but excluding content provided by instructors and students) are and will remain the exclusive property of GCELAB.COM and its licensors. Our platforms and services are protected by copyright, trademark. Nothing gives you a right to use the GCELAB.COM name or any of the GCELAB.COM trademarks, logos, domain names, and other distinctive brand features.

You may not do any of the following while accessing or using the GCELAB.COM platform and Services:
You agree that by registering, accessing or using our Services, you are agreeing to enter into a legally binding contract with GCELAB.COM. If you do not agree to these Terms, do not register, access, or otherwise use any of our Services.
If you are an instructor accepting these Terms and using our Services on behalf of a company, organization, government, or other legal entity, you represent and warrant that you are authorized to do so.
Any version of these Term in a language other than English is provided for convenience and you understand and agree that the English language will control if there is any conflict.
If any part of these Terms is found to be invalid or unenforceable by applicable law, then that provision will be deemed superseded by a valid, enforceable provision that most closely matches the intent of the original provision and the remainder of these Terms will continue in effect.
Even if we are delayed in exercising our rights or fail to exercise a right in one case, it doesn’t mean we waive our rights under these Terms, and we may decide to enforce them in the future. If we decide to waive any of our rights in a particular instance, it doesn’t mean we waive our rights generally or in the future.
It may happen that our platform is down, either for planned maintenance or because something goes down with the site. It may happen that one of our instructors is making misleading statements in their course. It may also happen that we encounter security issues. These are just examples. You accept that you will not have any recourse against us in any of these types of cases where things don’t work outright.

Third parties are permitted to link to stories within the GCELAB.COM website, using the URL and quoting the headline and the source. A third party must ensure that nothing on its own website suggests or could be understood to imply that any part of the website is part of its own website unless the third party has obtained the prior written approval of GCELAB.COM.

This Dispute Resolution section applies only if you live in the United Kingdom. Most disputes can be resolved, so before bringing a formal legal case, please first try contacting us.
1 Small Claims
Either of us can bring a claim in small claims court in (a) the United Kingdom, (b) the county where you live, or (c) another place we both agree on, as long as it qualifies to be brought in that court.
If we can’t resolve our dispute amicably, you and GCELAB.COM agree to resolve any claims related to these Terms (or our other legal terms) through final and binding arbitration, regardless of the type of claim or legal theory. If one of us brings a claim in court that should be arbitrated and the other party refuses to arbitrate it, the other party can ask a court to force us both to go to arbitration (compel arbitration). Either of us can also ask a court to halt a court proceeding while an arbitration proceeding is ongoing.
We both agree that we can each only bring claims against the other on an individual basis. This means: (a) neither of us can bring a claim as a plaintiff or class member in a class action, consolidated action, or representative action; (b) an arbitrator can’t combine multiple people’s claims into a single case (or preside over any consolidated, class, or representative action); and (c) an arbitrator’s decision or award in one person’s case can only impact that user, not other users, and can’t be used to decide other users’ disputes. If a court decides that this “No class actions” clause isn’t enforceable or valid, then this “Dispute Resolution” section will be null and void, but the rest of the Terms will still apply.
From time to time, we may update these Terms to clarify our practices or to reflect new or different practices (such as when we add new features), and GCELAB.COM reserves the right in its sole discretion to modify and/or make changes to these Terms at any time.
Your continued use of our Services after changes become effective shall mean that you accept those changes. Any revised Terms shall supersede all previous Terms.
