Understanding Thinkific Conditions of Use
Conditions of Use, or Terms of Service, define the acceptable use of a product or service. These agreements are important for both the course creator and the student.
For course creators, Conditions of Use provide a means to set expectations and protect their intellectual property. For students they establish rules and expectations for their participation in the course.
Thinkific’s Conditions of Use feature helps course creators protect their intellectual property and their services and products. The Conditions of Use also allow course creators to define the terms and conditions for student use, outlining the expectations and rules for participation in the course.
In addition, the Conditions of Use provide students with a list of guidelines they must follow to ensure a safe and secure learning experience.
In Thinkific’s terms, creators can create their version of the Terms of Service to reflect their policies and preferences and add a signature field to capture student acceptance of the terms. Once the conditions are set up, students must click a button indicating they have read and agreed to the terms before accessing the course.
- Intellectual property rights – It is important to state who owns the intellectual property (IP) rights for the course materials and related information and the extent to which the student can use it.
- Prohibited behavior and content – You should include language that explains what kind of content and behavior is prohibited while using your courses, such as profanity, hate speech, etc.
- Course access and refund policies – Set out what access students have to the course materials and how course refunds work.

- Limitation of liability and disclaimers – This informs students that they are solely responsible for any damages or loss caused by your course materials. Make sure to include disclaimers and limitations of liability for any potential damages or losses.
Essential Components to Include
- Purpose of data collection and usage – The policy should also include information on why the data is being collected and how it will be used. This should include the purpose of the data collection, such as improving the course experience, and how it will be used, such as personalizing content and messages.
- Sharing personal information with third parties – It is important to include information about whether or not the personal data will be shared. If so, this should be clearly stated in the policy.
