2. I accept that reference to the singular in this agreement shall embrace the plural and vice versa unless the contents imply otherwise.
3. I understand that this is a binding offer for the product, subject to acceptance by Head Office. Enrolment by Head Office is confirmed by both academic and financial approval. Should I neglect to receive the product (either as an electronic download, or online), this shall in no way affect my responsibilities and liabilities in terms of this agreement.
4. I agree and accept that my relationship with Brainline (acting in my capacity as an adult, or on behalf of my child/ren), is purely voluntarily. This association does not bind Brainline in any way, other than as stated in this document or on official company websites (brainline.com and/or brainONLINE).
5. I agree that, should Brainline find our relationship has broken down (having exhausted all internal processes for the resolution of conflict), Brainline is free to release me from my relationship with Brainline (subject to the terms of the agreement contained in this document) thereby enabling me to seek an alternative service provider, as I understand that Brainline acts as an independent service provider. I understand that I am under no obligation to use its services, nor is Brainline under any liability, on such termination, to render any assistance to me or the learner(s).
6. I understand that Brainline is an independent service provider, registered with the IEB (Independent Examination Board) and as such is bound to and respectful of the regulations of the IEB. I further understand that the relationship between myself and/or the learner (as client/s) and Brainline, is not within the jurisdiction of the IEB. All communication regarding the client-service provider relationship and/or offerings will be between myself and Brainline, and not the IEB.
7. As the client, I hereby authorise either yourselves or a transporter, the choice of whom shall be at your absolute discretion, to deliver the product (or part thereof) as an electronic download or online to the primary contact details of the parent/guardian, as well as the learner, as per the details I supplied via the enrolment platform (mybrainline.com).
8. If any product (or part thereof), purchased in terms of this agreement, are faulty, I understand that such products shall be replaced free of charge, on condition that I notify you thereof within five business days of receipt of the product by way of an email to [email protected] This includes ensuring that full access to all enrolled subjects is available to the learner on brainONLINE within 48 hours of enrolment.
9. I recognise that, upon registration, the Brainline learner will receive a dedicated student email address (S*****@brainline.com) where all brainONLINE notifications will be sent. These brainONLINE notifications will also be sent to the parent/guardian email address supplied by me and kept current by myself on the enrolment platform upon enrolment.
10. I recognise that the bulk of my communication with Brainline is done telephonically, via email, brainONLINE, and the enrolment platform. For this reason, I accept the importance of supplying Brainline with my complete and correct electronic contact information: dedicated parent/ guardian and learner email address, as well as cell phone number and alternative contact details.
11. I acknowledge that the email addresses registered on the parent/guardian profile will be the recipient address of messages form brainONLINE regarding all important academic matters.
12. I understand that Brainline's communication with me is done through email. I understand that non-receipt of email from Brainline cannot be alleged, as the management of my email account is my own responsibility. Brainline cannot be held accountable for my failure to open and read my emails, or for loss of access to my emails. This may include 0 marks awarded for missed assessments.
13. I recognise that it is my responsibility to ensure that my enrolment information on the enrolment platform is correct and updated at all times. This includes my residential and/or postal address, email address, or telephone numbers. I agree that I shall bear all costs that Brainline may incur because of my failure to update my enrolment information.
14. I declare that I am aware of the nature, quality and content of your product. I accept the product as it is, with no warranties whatsoever and that any disputes will be handled under Section J of this agreement.
15. I am aware that all delivery costs, for whatever reason, including any shipping costs, postage, freight, handling charges, and costs of media, will be for my account.
16. All software and learning material enclosed has not been sold but rather licensed to me for use only under the terms of this agreement. I am aware that Brainline reserves all rights not explicitly granted to me. Unless otherwise stated, Brainline retains all title and ownership of its immaterial goods and related documentation. Only the learners enrolled with Brainline may use Brainline's software and learning material. All electronic and hardcopy submissions become the property of Brainline.
17. In the event of a problem experienced of any nature whatsoever, I bear knowledge of Brainline's telephone numbers, and email address, where I may contact you for client service. I understand that a problem experienced by me, of any nature whatsoever, does not entitle me to cancel this agreement or cease payments. I also take cognisance of the following support contact details:
• IT support: [email protected]
• General client support: [email protected]
• Financial queries: [email protected]
• Report queries: [email protected]
• Subject-specific queries: Refer to brainONLINE subject pages for contact details
• Invigilation queries: [email protected]
18. I accept that a certificate signed by a Brainline-authorised official is sufficient proof of details stated herein for the purpose of obtaining any provisional summons or other sentence against me, or for any other purpose. Such a certificate shall also serve as prima facie proof that the stated amount, together with interest, is owed by me, and that the interest is payable at the rate stated therein.
19. I provide the information on the enrolment platform for the purpose of obtaining my credit record, and I understand that Brainline may investigate my credit record and report information concerning my credit conduct about my Brainline account to credit bureaus and others.
20. I understand that non-payment of my account will lead to suspension of services and access to brainONLINE for myself and/or the learner(s). I recognise that it is my responsibility to submit sufficient proof of payment of my account.
21. I understand that suspension of all services to me (and therefore the learner) will result in the unavailability of all forms of assessments. I understand that this will lead to loss of marks as no alternative assessments will be offered. I herewith irrevocably accept full responsibility should such a situation occur, as Brainline is not subsidised by the Department of Education and non-payment on my part is a breach of contract. This will result in the learner(s) being disadvantaged, due to my own negligence. I, therefore, indemnify Brainline as well as its staff against all responsibility in this regard. I understand that, where any form of assessment was missed because of suspension of my services, an additional fee for the setting and marking of these assessments will be for my own account.
22. I understand that Brainline is an independent, privately owned online school and service provider.
22.1 As such, although subject to all policies and procedures of both the IEB and Umalusi, Brainline acts with integrity and of its own accord in all matters pertaining to the running of this legal entity in line with its own values of reliability, consistency, and validity in a moral and ethical way while employing sound educational practices.
22.2 This implies that all complaints and queries need to be directed to Brainline itself until all avenues or recourse have been exhausted.
23. I shall not reproduce, copy, or cause to be copied, any part of Brainline's product. I agree to a penalty to the amount of at least R100 000 (one hundred thousand rand) if found guilty of such a transgression. This penalty amount does not include any legal fees incurred by Brainline, but which will be payable by me if I am found guilty. The amount may increase depending on the evidence put forward by Brainline.
24. I understand that Brainline reserves the right to investigate any instances where original academic reports, and or any other information has been fraudulently altered. I agree to a penalty if found guilty of such a transgression, which may be determined by legal parties conducting the investigation. This penalty amount does not include any legal fees incurred by Brainline, but which will be payable my me if found guilty. The amount may increase depending on the evidence put forward by Brainline.
25. I understand that the education of my child/children is my own responsibility and not the responsibility of Brainline, which I understand is merely providing an educational aid.
26. I understand that Brainline does not alter the curriculum as indicated by the National Department of Basic Education (as per the Revised National Curriculum Statement), as no one other than the aforementioned department and the IEB (Independent Examinations Board) is authorised to do so. However, it is the right of the parent(s) to edit the curriculum according to their own beliefs. Parents/educators/guardians should do this cognisant of possible ramifications for assessment.
27. I accept personal responsibility for ensuring that all subject choices are in line with the careers envisaged for learners in grades 10 to 12.
28. I acknowledge that I/my child, as a student enrolled to write the Grade 12 IEB NSC examination, will be deregistered from the IEB NSC examination for any subject for which I/he/she do(es) not comply with the compulsory SBA requirements as set by the IEB. I understand that this means that no NSC examinations will be written in said subject(s), effecting an incomplete subject set and no issuance of a Grade 12 certificate. The outstanding subject(s) will need to be repeated in full and at my own cost in the following academic year.
29. I shall be liable for all the costs in the event of legal action arising from the breach of this agreement, these being on the attorney-client scale plus collection commission.
30. I agree to the jurisdiction of the Magistrate's Court for all legal proceedings on breach of this agreement.
31. I understand that enrolment with Brainline does not constitute any form of application/registration/enrolment with any other authority, either private or public, such as the Department of Education.
32. I understand that neither the marking guidelines for certain practical assessments, marked final examinations nor the corresponding marking guidelines for any phase or grade will be released. This applies to all grades, including Grade 12, BrainlineCOMPACT and Supplementary Examinations. The conditions under which a viewing of the aforementioned documents may be scheduled at a fee are set out in the Assessment Procedure/FAQ document on brainONLINE.
33. Brainline has the right and is entitled to, in its sole discretion and without providing reasons therefore, refuse my child/children admission, enrolment or yearly re-enrolment and/or re-admission to Brainline. Nothing in this Agreement should be interpreted as a representation or warranty made by Brainline that my child/children will be admitted to and enrolled with Brainline annually.
34. Should Brainline, in its sole discretion, determine that the relationship between Brainline and myself has broken down irretrievably, Brainline is entitled to unilaterally terminate this agreement by providing thirty (30) days' written notice thereof. I understand that, upon termination of this agreement in terms of this clause, Brainline is under no obligation to render any assistance or services to me or the learner. Brainline will reimburse me for the unexpired part of the year when I/my child will receive no further services from Brainline.

B. ASSESSMENT

1. I understand that the Brainline formal notification received when a student uploads an assignment means that the uploaded document has been received. However, the notification does not imply that the uploaded document has been checked by Brainline. The validity of the document (correct file, not corrupt, completeness, readability) will only be checked during the marking process, which will commence after the final submission date.
2. I understand that the initial uploaded document remains in draft mode until the student clicks the final submission button. While in draft mode, the file can be changed or swopped by the student. Once the final submission date has passed, the draft file will be deemed to be the final submitted version for marking and cannot be replaced.
3. It remains the student's responsibility to follow all the on-screen steps once the draft has been uploaded.

• Download the file that has been uploaded to the upload link on brainONLINE.

• Check that the file opens, that the correct Answer Book has been submitted and that all the relevant pages have been scanned included in the file and are clearly legible.

4. By clicking the final Submit button, the learner accepts that a zero mark will be awarded should the marker be unable to mark all or part of a submitted assessment for whatsoever reason, which includes corrupt files, files that do not open and incorrect uploads.
5. I understand that, should a learner leave the upload in draft format and fail to complete the required steps before the final Submit button is clicked, the same will apply to the draft file once the final submission date has passed.
6. I understand that all formal assessments are bound by the set timetables that can be downloaded from brainONLINE and cannot be written on any other date or time.

C. INVIGILATION

1. I acknowledge that I am required to have an invigilator for the learners in Grade 8 to 12. An invigilator must be an independent person, older than the age of 18 years, not related to the learner, possess good reading and comprehension skills and be computer literate. This person must complete and pass the required brainONLINE invigilator test.
2. A parent/learner may opt for the Brainline Online Invigilation Service for compulsory assessments, unless stated otherwise. I recognise that these fees are for my own account. I understand that it is my responsibility to attend/ensure that the learner attends in the case of compulsory proctoring sessions and failing to attend may result in a 0 mark.
3. I recognise that all invigilation fees are excluded from the standard Brainline product fees and that these fees are for my own account as quoted by Brainline upon request, sent to [email protected]
4. No person who is a direct family member of a learner/student who is writing the examination is suitable to be appointed as an invigilator for that student.
5. Additional invigilation fees are applicable in the following cases:
5.1 Where a parent/learner opts to make use of the Brainline Online Invigilation Service for assessments, including stated compulsory assessments.
5.2 In the case of the Grade 12 preliminary examination, which must be completed at a Brainline examination centre (if the public health situation regarding Covid-19 or otherwise permits) or via the Brainline Online Invigilation Service.
5.3 In the case of Grade 12 final examinations, where accommodation has been approved for a candidate by the IEB, additional fees will apply on an hourly basis. Where a candidate is granted separate venues, extra time and/or examinations on computer, the dedicated services of a single invigilator to each individual learner is a requirement of the IEB.
5.4 In the case of Grade 12 Life Orientation, the learner must take note of the fact that CAT Paper 2 is to be written at a Brainline Examination Centre (if the public health situation regarding Covid-19 or otherwise permits) or via the Brainline Online Invigilation Service as directed by Brainline.

5.8 In the case of Grade 12 Visual Arts, the learner must take note of the fact that final Visual Arts Paper 2 examination is to be completed at a Brainline Examination Centre as directed by Brainline.
5.9 When invigilation services at one of the Brainline branches or online invigilation services are required, additional costs will apply, as quoted by Brainline upon request, sent to [email protected]
6. I acknowledge that Brainline may alter the invigilation process at any time without consultation, based on requirements in the interest of transparency, validity and reliability. Parents, guardians and educators should keep the data related to such processes in a safe place for a period of at least three years. Such data should be easily accessible and readily available as and when required by the Department of Education, Brainline, the IEB and/or its subsidiaries.
7. I accept that invigilation requirements may include (but are not limited to) online invigilation, which may involve the recording of examination sessions on the secure site/server of a third party, self-made recordings on electronic devices, or any other invigilation procedures duly approved by the IEB. Such requirements may change at any time and must be strictly adhered to in the interest of safeguarding all assessment results as it pertains to the National Senior Certificate. Nonadherence to these requirements (where it applies to specific products) will lead to the suspension of my profile and/or that of the learners.
8. I acknowledge that Brainline, in the interest of safeguarding the validity and reliability of learner marks obtained for tasks, tests and examinations, reserves the right to award a zero mark for an assessment on suspicion that any of the invigilation process has been contravened. Such suspicion will be investigated by the Irregularities Committee and the outcome will be communicated to the parent(s) and/or learner.
9. I acknowledge that Brainline, in the interest of safeguarding the validity and reliability of learner marks obtained for tasks, tests and examinations, reserves the right to cancel a parent/learner profile on suspicion that any aspect of the invigilation process has been contravened. Cancellation of said account can be done without prior notice and may/may not be reinstated after investigation of such incidents. It remains the responsibility of the parent/guardian/learner to prove that invigilation procedures have been adhered to.
10. Brainline reserves the right to suspend the account of a parent/learner if such a parent/learner refuses to comply with the standard protocols within a defined product, as published not only in this document, but also (and not excluding) all documents and information on brainONLINE. Should a parent/educator/guardian refuse to adhere to such protocols, the profile will be cancelled. Pro rata refund of monies paid to Brainline will occur in accordance with the Brainline Cancellation and Refund Policy (see Section J).
