A class you are taking may utilize Pearson MyLabs or Learning Catalytics software. This software requires you to agree to Pearson’s End User License Agreement (EULA) before you are permitted to use the software. The EULA takes the form of a pop-up window - you must click on the “agree” button to proceed. Below, we've noted a few of the key points in the EULA, but we strongly urge you to read the entire EULA carefully before proceeding, as the summary points below are the Libraries' interpretation of parts of the EULA and are not meant to be a substitute for a thorough reading of the EULA itself. Therefore, the Libraries cannot be held responsible for any varying interpretations of the EULA, either on our part or yours. It is important to note that many of the points articulated in the EULA are common to such agreements. Some of the key points are:
- This is an agreement between Pearson (the maker of MyLabs and Learning Catalytics) and you (not your instructor or the University of Pennsylvania).
- Pearson may change the nature of this agreement without prior notice to you. Continued use of the product implies your agreement to any changes.
- Sections 3.3.2 & 3.3.3: You may not post material from the website to any other online destination or reproduce provided materials for use outside of the class for which they are intended
- Section 4: Pearson may restrict the use of the website or change or discontinue any portion of the website without notice to you, although reasonable efforts will be made to alert users of significant changes when feasible. Changes are also noted on the Pearson 24/7 Support website (http://247pearsoned.custhelp.com/)
- Section 5: Pearson is not responsible for any third party product or information accessed via links on the website.
- Section 6.4: Pearson reserves the right to preserve content you post to the website beyond the end of your class and beyond any point in time that you close your account. Pearson also reserves the right to host, transmit , use and distribute this content without reference to any of your personal information indefinitely for product development and educational research
- Section 8.13: This section tells you how to register with a pseudonym if you do not want to provide Pearson with personal information. It is important to follow the instructions in this section to ensure you get credit for assignments if you choose this type of registration. We would also advise you to check with your instructor regarding their policies on this option.
- Section 11: if you are dissatisfied with the product, your sole remedy is to stop using it.
- Section 13: Indemnification – you may not hold Pearson responsible for any “claims, losses, damages, deficiencies, liabilities, costs or expenses” that may arise from using the MyLabs or Learning Catalytics product.
Please direct any questions or concerns regarding this agreement, Pearson MyLabs or Learning Catalytics to your course instructor.
