Certificates will be issued by KVRQhubeka under the name of the underlying Member from where the course originated. The decision whether a Certificate will be awarded to a given learner will be solely within the discretion of the awarding Member. KVRQhubeka and/or the Members providing courses on the Site may choose not to offer a Certificate for some courses. Should any dispute arise, then the dispute shall be resolved with the Member responsible for the specific course purchased. KVRQhubeka is a registered learning provider and not an accreditation body. Consequently, KVRQhubeka cannot be held responsible for any disputes arising with other Members or accrediting bodies associated with the Site.

 

Registration and Payment.

Subject to the foregoing, you may be required to pay an additional fee to receive a “Verified Certificate” with respect to certain courses on the Site, in which case, the following processes and requirements shall apply:

  • The processing of your payment information is done by a KVRQhubeka third-party vendor, and you will be re-routed to a secure website to complete the payment transaction. The privacy statement posted at the payment landing page operated by such third-party vendor will govern the submission and processing of your payment details. Please familiarize yourself with those terms prior to initiating a transaction.
  • Once your payment transaction is completed, you will be re-routed back to a KVRQhubeka confirmation page and will receive a confirmation email with your name, order number and the payment amount. Please retain this email for your records as this information will be required if you seek a refund from KVRQhubeka, as described below.

Course Withdrawal and Refunds.

  • Verified Certificate Track: For enrolment in the verified certificate track, you have a period of 2 calendar days after your payment to request a refund. Should you wish to request a refund, please send all your payment details to info@kvrtraining.com.  
  • Professional Education Courses: For enrolment in a Professional Education course, you have a period of 2 calendar days after your payment to request a refund. Should you wish to request a refund, please send all your payment details to info@kvrtraining.com.

When you take a course through KVRQhubeka, you will not be an applicant for admission to, or enrolled in, any degree program of the Member as a result of registering for or completing a course provided by such Member through KVRQhubeka. You will not be entitled to use any of the resources of the Member beyond the online courses provided on the Site, nor will you be eligible to receive learner privileges or benefits provided to learners enrolled in degree programs of the Member.

 

AUTHENTICATION

In order that KVRQhubeka can authenticate your identity as required by these TOS, and for certification purposes in South Africa, you will be required to provide a certified copy of your identification document, a copy of your curriculum vitae and certified copies of your achieved certificates of study. Once submitted to KVRQhubeka, this information will be subject to the privacy and confidentiality terms as set out in this TOS and will be used only for the purpose of verifying your identity and certification.

Unfortunately, if you do not provide the required documentation meeting the criteria described above, KVRQhubeka is unable to provide you with a South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA) or applicable Sector Education Training Authority (SETA) certificate at this time. Please note that should you be registered for a “Verified Certificate”, you will be required to provide such documentation within 14 days, failing which KVRQhubeka will be unable to register your application with the appropriate Sector Education Training Authority (SETA).

  • To track both individual and aggregate attendance, progress and completion of an online course, and to analyze statistics on learner performance and how learners learn.
  • To monitor and detect violations of misuses and potential misuses of the Site.

  • With other visitors to the Site, to the extent that you submit comments, course work, or other information or content (collectively, "Postings") to a portion of the Site designed for public communications; and with other members of an KVRQhubeka class of which you are a member, to the extent you submit Postings to a portion of the Site designed for viewing by those class members.

In addition, we may share aggregated information that does not personally identify you with the public and with third parties, including but not limited to researchers and business partners.

 

USE FOR PERSONALIZATION AND PEDAGOGICAL IMPROVEMENTS

Our goal is to provide current and future visitors with the best possible educational experience. To further this goal, we sometimes present different users with different versions of course materials and software. We do this to personalize the experience to the individual learner (assess the learner's level of ability and learning style, and present materials best suited to the learner), to evaluate the effectiveness of our course materials, to improve our understanding of the learning process and to otherwise improve the effectiveness of our offerings. We may publish or otherwise publicize results from this process, but, unless otherwise permitted under this Privacy Policy, those publications or public disclosures will not include Personal Information.

LINKS TO OTHER WEBSITES

The Site contains links to websites published by third parties, including other content providers as well as certain service providers, such as those who process payments on behalf of KVRQhubeka. These other websites are not under our control, and you acknowledge and agree that we are not responsible for the collection and use of your information by such websites, unless we have otherwise indicated in this Privacy Policy. We encourage you to be aware when you are being redirected to a third-party website and review the privacy policies of each website you visit and use.

 

SECURITY

KVRQhubeka has a program designed to protect Personal Information in its possession or control. This is done through a variety of privacy and security policies, processes, and procedures, including administrative, physical, and technical safeguards that reasonably and appropriately protect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of the Personal Information that it creates, receives, maintains, or transmits. Nonetheless, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure; and therefore, KVRQhubeka cannot guarantee its absolute security.
