9/g) Early access
In case of longer courses we already start selling them before the full course is uploaded to our website. For these courses we use early access which means that you only pay for the materials that are already available. For the rest of the materials that will be uploaded in the following weeks, you get them for free as their proportional value is deducted from the course price.
We start the early access of a course when half of the materials are already available. In this case the degree of the early access discount is 50%. As we upload further materials, the degree of the discount is reduced proportionally.

We only offer early access when the not yet uploaded videos are already recorded, but not edited yet. When we upload new materials, we inform our students about it, and of the estimated date of the next upload.

If after purchase you are not satisfied with the uploading speed of the new parts, you can cancel your preorder at any time, and we will give you your money back.

As some parts of the course are still under editing at the moment of the early access purchase, the length of the final course can only be an estimation.

As the final length of the presold courses can only be an estimation, the early access discount is based on this estimation, furthermore rounded to the nearest ten percent.
