Terms of Services
V4 – Updated 3/1/2022
MEDDIC ACADEMY maintains this website, any materials offered and other linked and related sites (the “Site”) for the use of its customers, vendors, students, and other Site users (“Users”) upon agreement to the following terms. Please read the terms carefully before using the Site. Use of this website indicates acceptance of these “Terms of Services” and forms a binding agreement between “YOU” and MEDDIC ACADEMY. If YOU do not agree to these terms, do not use this Site.
1. Use of Site
1.a. No Anonymous User
Since the terms of services are a binding agreement between YOU and MEDDIC Academy, you can not use the platform anonymously; MEDDIC Academy needs to be able to authenticate “you”. In an Enterprise license, your information is provided by your employer. When using the service as an individual, user’s authentication is usually done in an easy way, such as the use of prominent social networks such as LinkedIn through a valid profile. Occasionally, for individual users, we may need a higher level of authentication, and therefore ask for a government ID with photography. This can happen when the social network is new, or in any way considered as unusual per our sole discretion.
MEDDIC ACADEMY provides various content, materials, information, slides, documents, videos, audios, graphics, charts, quizzes, tests, questions, articles, news, ebooks and other information on this and related sites and in courses offered through this site (the “Materials”). MEDDIC ACADEMY authorizes each User to only view the Materials. Only those materials which are explicitly authorized for download may be downloaded and a maximum of one copy of those Materials may be printed (when the electronic file allows printing) provided that Users make no modifications to the Materials and you keep all copyright and other proprietary notices contained in the original Materials on any copies of the Materials. If a material such as a video, an ebook or slides, is only available for viewing purposes, and not for downloading, any direct or indirect attempt to download or capture or screen capture or any similar action is strictly forbidden. Similarly, projecting the material on a large screen to allow viewing by several people is strictly forbidden. Users may not modify the Materials at this Site in any way or reproduce, copy, share or distribute them. Users will consider all Materials as confidential, and will not sell, auction, loan, rent, give away, describe, summarize, or otherwise reveal the Materials or their contents, to any other person or entity, neither privately nor publicly. Any breach of these Terms of services automatically terminates your authorized use of the Site.
2. Copyright and License of Materials.
Materials are either the property of MEDDIC ACADEMY or belong to MEDDIC ACADEMY’s partners or instructors and are in all cases protected by US and international copyright law and conventions. User acknowledges that access to the Materials is limited to the License terms set forth herein and any expansion must be in writing. The granting of the License to access and use the Materials is conditioned on User’s agreement not to disclose, copy, disseminate, redistribute, or publish Materials, or any portion of or excerpts of the Materials to any other party. The ranting of the license is valid for a certain period of time, generally one year. Access to the content will be terminated after the initial period, unless the license is renewed.
User shall have the right to use the Materials solely by himself/herself for their own information and education purposes, only for the period of their authorized access. Generic email addresses are not allowed. Sharing sign-in credentials are strictly forbidden. If other individuals, even in the same organization or company need to access the Materials, they have to obtain access to the material through their own separate individual account by subscribing individually to the materials, or through a negotiated Enterprise license through their employer. Reproduction, copying or downloading of the Materials in any form or by any means is forbidden without MEDDIC ACADEMY’s written permission, including but not limited to:
- a) Materials storage and retrieval systems;
- b) recordings and re-transmittals over any network (including any local area network);
- c) use in any timesharing, service bureau, bulletin board, group discussion or similar arrangement or public display;
- d) posting any Material or any portion of a Material, to any other private, public or online service (including social media, bulletin boards, intranet or the Internet) ; or
- e) sublicensing, leasing, selling, offering for sale or assigning the Materials .
3. User Warranty
As a User, you warrant that you are not an agent or employee of any other Sales Education and you use the Site and Materials solely for the purpose of learning sales and not for replicating MEDDIC ACADEMY’s processes, methods, know how or materials.
4. Trademark and Copyright

In no event will MEDDIC ACADEMY, its suppliers, or other third parties mentioned at this Site be liable for any damages whatsoever (including, without limitation, those resulting from declining revenue, sales performance, loss of opportunities, loss of business, interruption of services or inaccurate information) arising out of the use, inability to use, or the results of the use of this Site, any websites linked to this Site, or the Materials or information contained at any or all such sites, whether based on warranty, contract, tort or any other legal theory and whether or not advised of the possibility of such damages.
In no event will MEDDIC ACADEMY be liable for any claim attributable to errors, omissions or other inaccuracies in the Materials or interpretations thereof.
Applicable law may not allow the limitation or exclusion of liability or incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to some users. Under such situation, user explicitly agrees that in no event shall MEDDIC ACADEMY’s total liability to the user for all damages, losses, and causes of action (whether in contract, tort [including, but not limited to, negligence] or otherwise) exceed the amount paid by the user, if any, for accessing this site.
If your use of the Materials or information from this Site results in the need for servicing, repair or correction of equipment or data, you assume all costs thereof.
8. Enterprise License
Corporation clients may be granted an Enterprise license for a given number of users to use the site and access to the materials. In this case the client communicates the list of the employees, to MEDDIC Academy, to be enrolled in the service. Once the list of the users is submitted by the client to MEDDIC Academy, it becomes part of the present agreement. All the provisions of this agreement apply to the licensee corporation. All the provisions of this agreement apply equally to each of the user-employees to whom the license has been granted, except for the payment, which is due by the employer. Only those listed employees are allowed to use the site. Since this is a course and content delivered, unlike a software, once a license is granted to a given employee it can’t be dis-granted or cancelled, regardless of their level of progress in the course. This is also valid when an employee leaves the company after being enrolled. No-one can “un-teach” a lesson delivered to someone. Any dispute between an Enterprise License user and MEDDIC Academy needs to go through the employer who has paid us to enroll the employee.
- a) MEDDIC ACADEMY charges for licenses or fees and collects them in advance for use of the “Materials” and “Services”. The price of each service or Material is explicitly shown on the website or in proposals. MEDDIC ACADEMY reserves the right in its sole discretion and as it deems appropriate to change its pricing and add, remove or otherwise modify the services or Materials it offers. Enterprise license quotes are generally valid for one month unless stated otherwise in writing.
- b) Due to the nature of our services which is about delivery of information which by definition, once exposed/delivered, can neither be cancelled nor returned, you explicitly acknowledge that all amounts paid are NON-REFUNDABLE, EVEN WHEN YOU CLAIM THAT YOU HAVE NOT OPENED THE DELIVERED FILE, or under any other circumstance. You also agree not to open a dispute to claim a refund with any third party payment clearance system such as Paypal, or your Credit Card company or Bank which will occur additional fees that you’ll have to bear.
- c) Most content and services are subscription based for individual users. The price presentation reflects the subscription, for instance in the form of $X amount per year. At the time of the payment you are once again reminded that your about to subscribe. This means that you are approving the automatic renewal. You have the ability to easily cancel the renewal at any time, even right after subscribing without losing access to the content for the period that you have already paid. In case you have difficulties in finding the cancelation menu, you can check our FAQ (frequently asked questions) page or contact the support at http://meddic.academy/contact/ . IF YOU DON’T CANCEL THE RENEWAL AND GET CHARGED, THERE WILL BE NO REFUND. Enterprise licenses are not automatically renewed.
- d) MEDDIC ACADEMY may use 3rd party banking services such as Paypal® , STRIPE or other third party services to receive your payment. If MEDDIC ACADEMY does not receive payment or pre-payment, and that for any reason, you agree to pay MEDDIC ACADEMY all amounts due on demand plus interest and expenses. You hereby authorize MEDDIC ACADEMY to take all necessary actions to collect payment. You understand and agree that if MEDDIC ACADEMY does not receive timely payment of all amounts due, your use of the MATERIAL may be restricted or terminated. Late payment is also subject to late charges. Any User that without justification disputes charges for hosting or related services directly with a credit card issuer or other third-party resulting in a “chargeback” or “stop payment” or other form of payment reversal will be subject to immediate termination of license to use or to access the service or the purchased Material. If a User wishes to continue service subsequent to undergoing a restriction in service or termination resulting from a payment reversal, reinstatement will be subject to corresponding fees.
