In particular, but without limitation, you agree not use the Site for any unlawful purposes or to try to gain unauthorised access to the Site or any networks, servers or computer systems connected to the Site and/or reproduce, redistribute, sell, create derivative works from, decompile, reverse engineer, or disassemble all or part of the Site save to the extent expressly permitted by law not capable of lawful exclusion.

5.4 Instructors shall attend a Lesson promptly and shall provide all instruction in a Lesson to the best of its ability, with reasonable skill and care and in accordance with all applicable laws and regulations.

The Instructor is responsible for all taxes due and payable in respect of all sums received from Go Beep Beep under these Terms.
