Governing Law

These Terms of Use shall be governed by the law of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China. You agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Hong Kong Court.


Dispute Resolution

You and LT agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof, including disputes related to the interpretation, enforceability or formation of this “Dispute Resolution” section, or the use of the Site or Learning Time Materials, products or Services (collectively, “Disputes”) shall be referred to and finally resolved by arbitration administered by the Hong Kong International Arbitration Centre under the Hong Kong International Arbitration Centre Administered Arbitration rules in force when the Notice of Arbitration is submitted. The seat of arbitration shall be Hong Kong. The number of arbitrators shall be one. The arbitration proceedings shall be conducted in English, except that each party retains the right: (i) to bring an individual action in small claims court and (ii) to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents or other intellectual property rights (the action described in the foregoing clause (ii), an “IP Protection Action”). Without limiting the preceding sentence, you will also have the right to litigate any other Dispute if you provide Learning Time with written notice of your desire to do so by email at hello@learningtime.com.hk  or regular mail at 5F, 88 Lockhart Road, Wanchai, Hong Kong within thirty (30) days following the date you first agree to these Terms (such notice, an “Arbitration Opt-out Notice”). If you don’t provide Learning Time with an Arbitration Opt-out Notice within the thirty (30) day period, you will be deemed to have knowingly and intentionally waived your right to litigate any Dispute except as expressly set forth in clauses (i) and (ii) above. The exclusive jurisdiction and venue of any IP Protection Action or, if you timely provide Learning Time with an Arbitration Opt-out Notice, will be Hong Kong courts and each of the parties hereto waives any objection to jurisdiction and venue in such courts. Unless you timely provide Learning Time with an Arbitration Opt-out Notice, you acknowledge and agree that you and Learning Time are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action or representative proceeding. Further, unless both you and Learning Time otherwise agree in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class or representative proceeding. If this specific paragraph is held unenforceable, then the entirety of this “Dispute Resolution” section will be deemed void.

Except as provided in the preceding sentence, this “Dispute Resolution” section will survive any termination of these Terms.

The arbitration will be administered by the Hong Kong International Arbitration Centre (HKIAC) in accordance with the HKIAC Domestic Arbitration Rules or the HKIAC Administered Arbitration Rules then in effect, except as modified by this “Dispute Resolution” section.

A party who desires to initiate arbitration must provide the other party with a written Demand for Arbitration as specified in the HKIAC Rules. The arbitrator will be either a retired judge or an attorney licensed to practice law and will be selected by the parties from the HKIAC’s roster of arbitrators. If the parties are unable to agree upon an arbitrator within seven (7) days of delivery of the Demand for Arbitration, then the HKIAC will appoint the arbitrator in accordance with the HKIAC Rules.

If your claim does not exceed US $10,000, then the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of the documents that you and LT submit to the arbitrator, unless you request a hearing or the arbitrator determines that a hearing is necessary. If your claim exceeds US $10,000, your right to a hearing will be determined by the HKIAC Rules. Subject to the HKIAC Rules, the arbitrator will have the discretion to direct a reasonable exchange of information by the parties, consistent with the expedited nature of the arbitration. The arbitrator will render an award within the time frame specified in the HKIAC Rules. The arbitrator’s decision will include the essential findings and conclusions upon which the arbitrator based the award.

Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The arbitrator’s award of damages must be consistent with the terms of the “Disclaimers, Limitations and Exclusions of Liability” section below as to the types and amounts of damages for which a party may be held liable. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the claimant and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the claimant’s individual claim.


Your responsibility to pay any HKIAC filing, administrative and arbitrator fees will be solely as set forth in the HKIAC Rules.

Notwithstanding the provisions of the “Amendments” section above, if LT changes this “Dispute Resolution” section after the date you first accepted these Terms (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms), you may reject any such change by sending us written notice (including by email to hello@learningtime.com.hk within 30 days of the date such change became effective, as indicated in the “Last Updated” date above or in the date of LT’s email to you notifying you of such change.

By rejecting any change, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any Dispute between you and Learning Time in accordance with the provisions of this “Dispute Resolution” section as of the date you first accepted these Terms (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms).
