If you have not yet reached the required 16 years of age please submit a written form containing the explicit consent of your parents to info@studylocal.ng so that we may accept your registration and welcome you to our community. Failure to do so exposes your account to termination.

Termination of the User agreement

Termination of the User agreement by either party will result in a ban or the deletion of the account.

The User agreement is effective until terminated by either party. If a user no longer agrees to be bound by these Terms of Use he must notify the site administration of the termination.

Changes to these Terms

StudyLocal reserves the right to change or add to these Terms of Use. Any changes will also be binding upon pre-existing User agreements subject to the user being given 30 days notice of the changes. Within such period StudyLocal will give serious consideration to the objections of the user and may decide to revoke or amend the changes on the basis of such objections. If StudyLocal rejects an objection, the user is entitled to terminate the User agreement at the end of this notice period.
