Additional conditions may apply to each specific Service. As each new service becomes available, a link will be provided to information regarding any new conditions. The private user of the free services (hereinafter referred to as "User") is identified by the personal information provided at the time of registration. The private user who has registered for one or more of the paid services offered by ltest.org will also be referred to as "Customer" in this contract, as well as in the respective additional conditions. For information about how the system works, please consult the website https://www.ltest.org/. In the event that the mandatory personal data provided by the User or Customer is found to be incorrect, incomplete or non-existent including during subsequent checks, ltest.org reserves the right not to activate, to suspend or to terminate the Service at any time without prior notice.

3. DURATION OF THE SERVICE Registration for the Free Services is of indefinite duration unless TEAM TEACHING S.R.L. decides to cancel the registration which it is free to do so at any time communicating the cancellation via the website. When registering for paid services, the results obtained are usually stored on the server and can be consulted by either party for at least 12 months after the test has been taken.

The Customer is responsible for the hardware and software equipment and any costs associated with using the Internet during the use of each Service, as well as the cost of any telephone calls to the Internet provider used by the Customer.

7. SECURITY
Access to the Services is granted by means of an identification code (username) and a keyword (password). The username is public data, while the password, provided only by the Service, is the secret key without which the Service cannot be accessed. The User is aware that a third party in possession of the password would be able to use the Service in the User’s name. The User is therefore required to keep the password confidential and will be responsible for any damage caused by the password being known by third parties. The password cannot be changed by the user. The User undertakes to notify info@ltest.org immediately of any theft, loss or breach of password confidentiality and remains responsible for any use of the Service until notification of the theft, loss or breach of confidentiality has been received. The User also undertakes to immediately notify ltest.org by e-mail at info@ltest.org, of any unauthorized use of his/her user ID and/or password or any other breach of security that comes to his/her attention.

8. RIGHTS AND OBLIGATIONS OF THE USER The User acknowledges that he/she is not allowed to use or give others the opportunity to use the Services to do anything that cause damage or disturbance to other users and/or services operating on the Internet and/or that violate the laws and regulations in force. Specifically, but not exclusively, it is forbidden to use or give others the opportunity to use the Services to:
  • Make unauthorized attempts to access any account or computer belonging to other parties;
  • Obtain or try to obtain services using any type of means to avoid the payment due;
  • Intercept, prevent, unlawfully interrupt or reveal the content of computerised or electronic communication;
  • Interfere with, steal or delete computerised or electronic communication between third parties;
  • Transmit, distribute or retain any type of material that violates any current legislation or regulation; this includes, but is not limited to, copyrighted material, trademarks, trade secrets or other intellectual property, pornography or defamatory material or material that constitutes unlawful processing of personal data or violates export control laws;
  • Violate the privacy of other users of the Network;
  • Use the Services to prevent other customers or authorized users from accessing the ltest.org network.
The User / Customer has sole responsibility both for the information provided via ltest.org Data Controller’s software of the ltest.org website and for the use of this data and its dissemination. The Customer relieves the Data Controller of the ltest.org website of any responsibility connected with the insertion of personal data entered anywhere on the website. The User/Customer is therefore required to take all the necessary precautions before inserting such data. The information on the ltest.org website may link to external sites and their services, over which the Data Controller of the Web Site does not have any control and for which the Data Controller takes no responsibility. The assessment of the Customer’s language ability provided by the service cannot be modified in any way; the Customer may only ask for the assessment to be removed. The User therefore releases ltest.org from responsibility for any loss, damage, liability, costs and expenses, including legal fees, arising from the contravention of these rules. The User also acknowledges that, while surfing the Internet, he/she has sole responsibility for the upload and/or download of any programs, content or information from the Network. The Customer expressly agrees and authorizes ltest.org, also in accordance with Legislative Decree 185/99 art. 10 1st paragraph and of Legislative Decree 185/99. 171/98 art. 10, to use automatically generated communication (mail, SMS, ordinary mail, banners) within the limits established in the consent to the processing of personal data expressed in accordance with Legislative Decree 196/03 for sending advertising messages. Ltest.org undertakes not to send more than one advertising e-mail per day for free services. Ltest.org will keep the personal data provided by the Customer confidential and not disclose it to third parties without the explicit consent of the customer, except when expressly requested by the Judicial Authorities, in accordance with Legislative Decree. 196/03. It is understood that ltest.org has the right to transmit such data to persons who have signed a confidentiality agreement and who have been authorised to execute the services connected with the intended purpose of this contract. The Customer/User is expressly informed that he/she may not transfer the present contract to third parties, whether for payment or free of charge, on a temporary or permanent basis, without the written consent of ltest.org. The Customer and the User acknowledges and accepts that a Log register is held by ltest.org. The Log register is confidential and may only be shown to the Judicial Authorities if expressly requested. Ltest.org takes all the necessary measures to guarantee the confidentiality of the Log register. The Customer/User acknowledges that when he/she connects to the Service, ltest.org identifies him/her through his/her Customer code in order to determine the origin of the connection. Ltest.org guarantees the confidentiality of all data and information sent to or received from the Customer/User via its website. In no circumstances can the content of said communication be used for any kind of check, verification or censorship by ltest.org or third parties, with the express exception of the Judicial Authorities.

9. PROFILING
Profiling is a system used to analyse purchasing habits based on the user’s internet activity. Ltest.org may analyse user logins to create a predefined list of sites and advertisements that may be of interest to the Customer from a purely commercial point of view. The list will be composed of websites which best represent various product categories. These sites will be selected from among the most popular and stable sites for each product category. The catalogue thus defined will be kept up-to-date and will be periodically checked by ltest.org When creating and storing the aforementioned catalogue, ltest.org ensures and guarantees that it will not include sites which process, either directly or indirectly, any information relating to sensitive data: " [...] racial and ethnic origin, religious, philosophical or other beliefs, political opinions, membership of political parties, trade unions, associations or organisations of a religious, philosophical, political or trade union nature, as well as personal data revealing the state of health and sex life[...]" in accordance with article 20 of Legislative Decree No. 196/03. Therefore any data processing that might directly or indirectly involve sensitive information will automatically be excluded. The data may be transferred to third parties for anonymous market research or for transmitting advertising material with the explicit consent of the User or Customer. This process is mandatory for Users of Free Services and integral to the recovery of costs incurred for the services themselves while it is optional for Customers of paid Services.

10. LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY
Ltest.org undertakes to do everything within its power to guarantee that the services are always fully functioning. However, the User acknowledges that there may be interruptions to the Service due to routine and extraordinary maintenance of the system. As far as possible and with the exception of cases of force majeure, Users will be informed of interruptions in advance by email or through the Portal. At the same time the User also acknowledges that the use of ltest.org Services can be affected by traffic on the internet and/or the telephone networks anywhere along the line. The User therefore acknowledges that the continuity and quality of the Services does not depend solely on Ltest.org systems, but also on the abovementioned technical conditions. Ltest.org will therefore not be liable for damage of any kind to the User or any persons directly or indirectly connected to the User, including any damage to the User/Customer caused by loss of profit, use or loss of data or any other intangibles resulting from:
  • delays, malfunctions, suspension and/or interruption of the Services;
  • goods, products and services purchased or obtained by the User from third parties via the Services;
  • unauthorized access to or changes made to the User's data and/or the information communicated by the User.
The User also acknowledges that ltest.org may suspend the Services in order to carry out routine and extraordinary maintenance. Ltest.org takes no responsibility for damage arising from use of the Services. Furthermore, Ltest.org does not offer any guarantee regarding the results that are expected, hoped for or obtained through the use of the Services. The result obtained by taking the LTEST Online English test is purely an estimate of the User/Customer’s actual level of English and the correlation between the score obtained and the level description indicated in the CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages), TOEIC (Test of English for International Communication) or IELTS (International English Language Testing System) is based on research and testing carried out by the TEAM TEACHING S.R.L. Training Centre.

In any case, any form of implicit or explicit warranty is expressly excluded, insofar as this does not conflict with current legislation. The parties mutually agree and acknowledge that in any and all cases of dispute the User may only request Ltest.org to reimburse the fee paid. The transactions carried out by Users and Customers with the advertisers present on the Portal, the delivery and payment of products or services, the provision of warranties and any other element connected with the transactions have effect exclusively between them and the advertiser. Ltest.org is completely extraneous to the commercial transaction. Users and Customers, therefore, acknowledge that Ltest.org cannot be held responsible for problems connected or arising directly or indirectly from the transactions carried out via its services.

11. CHANGES TO THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THE SERVICES
Ltest.org will inform its users in advance of any technical/performance and/or changes to or charges for the Services, by publishing the date when such changes will take effect on the website and/or notifying them by e-mail.

15. CONFIDENTIALITY
The service can be accessed using a Client identification code – “Username” - and a keyword - “password”. The Client is informed that a third party in possession of both the Username and the password would be able to use the service in the Customer’s name and gain access to his/her e-mail correspondence. The Client is therefore required to keep the password absolutely confidential. He/she will be held responsible for any damage and detrimental consequence to ltest.org or third parties as a result of failure to comply with the above. The password provided to access the Service cannot be changed, therefore the Client undertakes to notify ltest.org immediately if he/she forgets the password or if it is lost or stolen.
