Skillshare 1-on-1 Sessions Terms and Conditions for Participants

Skillshare (as defined in our Terms of Service, collectively, “Skillshare,” “we,” “us,” or “our”) works with teachers, creators, experts, and others (a “Host” or “Hosts”) to allow these Hosts to engage directly and individually with a paying participant (a “Participant” or “Participants”) via a time-limited 1-on-1 video chat session (a “1-on-1 Session”). By signing up for, scheduling, and/or participating in a 1-on-1 Session, you agree to the terms and conditions that follow (the “1-on-1 Terms”), as well as our Terms of Service and Privacy Policy. Do not sign up for, schedule, or participate in a 1-on-1 Session if you do not agree to any of these terms.  

Skillshare and Host Roles and Responsibilities

Skillshare is not the creator, organizer, or owner of any 1-on-1 Session hosted via, facilitated via, or linked from the Skillshare platform or any platform of a Skillshare subsidiary. Instead, we provide Hosts with access to Skillshare users and others so Hosts can offer 1-on-1 Sessions to these individuals. When hosting a 1-on-1 Session, the Host is solely responsible for ensuring that the 1-on-1 Session and any page displaying or advertising a 1-on-1 Session complies with any applicable laws, rules, and regulations, and that the goods and services described on any such page are delivered as described and in an accurate, satisfactory manner. 

Payment and License

By scheduling a 1-on-1 Session and providing us, or a third-party partner acting on our behalf, with your payment method at checkout, you authorize Skillshare (acting by its payment processor) and/or our partners to charge that payment method to take payment for your order. We are not responsible for any losses you may suffer if the payment method you use to pay for the 1-on-1 Session does not have sufficient funds to cover all costs of that order.

Payment is required when you schedule a 1-on-1 Session and all payments are final. If you fail to attend the scheduled 1-on-1 Session for any reason, you will not be entitled to a refund and the Host is under no obligation to reschedule the 1-on-1 Session or make other accommodations for you.

1-on-1 Sessions may take place in different countries, and sessions will be sold in either U.S. dollars (USD) or the Host’s native currency. You will be responsible for any additional charges to which you may be subject by your credit or debit card provider or bank, or any currency exchange rate fluctuations and Skillshare does not accept liability for these.

By paying for a 1-on-1 Session, you are granted a personal revocable license which may be withdrawn, and admission refused, at any time, subject to these 1-on-1 Terms or our Terms of Service. Before you sign up for a 1-on-1 Session, Skillshare or the Host will generally inform you of any restrictions which apply to entry. Skillshare will not be responsible for the consequences of any failure by you to abide by such information provided pre-purchase. You may also be ejected from a 1-on-1 Session at any time if Skillshare employees or a Host or those working on their behalf determine that you are acting in contravention of the law, are a safety or security risk, or may cause damage, nuisance, or injury.


Skillshare is not obligated to offer refunds sought less than 48 hours before your scheduled 1-on-1 Session. To seek a refund more than 48 hours before your scheduled 1-on-1 Session, you must follow the “Cancel” link at the bottom of the confirmation email you received upon booking your 1-on-1 Session. If you did not receive such a confirmation email, or the confirmation email you received did not include such a link, you must contact us directly. Should your 1-on-1 Session be canceled ahead of time, you will be entitled to a full refund of the price you paid. 

Video Conferencing Services and Recording

Participants will participate in the 1-on-1 Session through the use of a video conferencing service. This software may be provided by a third-party such as, Zoom, or Google. By participating in the 1-on-1 Session you will be subject to the terms of service for the applicable service, such as the Terms of Service, the Zoom Terms of Service, or the Google Terms of Service. These terms may change without notice to Skillshare or you. You are advised to review such terms from time to time for any updates or changes that may impact you. 

1-on-1 Sessions may be recorded by the Host and the recording may be shared with the Participant who attended the 1-on-1 Session, or may be used by the Host for other purposes. Although Hosts are instructed to seek and receive your permission before beginning a recording, by participating in a 1-on-1 Session, you agree to being recorded during the 1-on-1 Session. 

Participants are not permitted to save, record, share, or post a recording of the 1-on-1 Session or any photos from the 1-on-1 Session without express prior permission from Skillshare and the Host.


You hereby agree to release Skillshare from all damages (whether direct, indirect, incidental, consequential, or otherwise), losses, liabilities, costs, and expenses of every kind and nature, known and unknown, arising out of a dispute between you and a third party (including Hosts or other Participants) in connection with any 1-on-1 Session.

In addition, you waive any applicable law or statute which says, in substance, “A general release does not extend to claims which the releasing party does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the released party.” 


You agree to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless Skillshare from any and all damage (whether direct, indirect, incidental, consequential, or otherwise), loss, liability, cost, and expense (including reasonable attorneys' and accounting fees) resulting from any claim, demand, suit, proceeding (whether before an arbitrator, court, mediator, or otherwise), or investigation made by any third party (each a "Claim") relating to or arising out of:

  • your breach of these 1-on-1 Terms (including any terms or agreements or policies incorporated into these 1-on-1 Terms);
  • your unauthorized use of the 1-on-1 Session or the Services (as defined in our Terms of Service);
  • any feedback that you give or receive;
  • your breach of any applicable local, state, provincial, national, or other law, rule, or regulation, or the rights of any third party;
  • our collection and remission of taxes, if any.

We will provide notice to you of any such Claim, but our failure or delay in providing such notice will not limit your indemnification obligations except to the extent you are materially prejudiced by such failure. Also, in certain circumstances, we may choose to handle the Claim ourselves, in which case you agree to cooperate with us in any way we request.

Disclaimer of Warranties and Assumption of Risks by You

To the extent allowed under applicable laws, 1-on-1 Sessions are provided on an "as is" and "as available" basis. Skillshare expressly disclaims all warranties of any kind, express or implied, including implied warranties of merchantability, title, non-infringement, and fitness for a particular purpose. For example, we make no warranty that:

  • the 1-on-1 Session (or any portion thereof) will meet your requirements or expectations;
  • the 1-on-1 Session will be uninterrupted, timely, secure, or error-free; or
  • the results that may be obtained from your participation in a 1-on-1 Session, if any, will be accurate, reliable, beneficial, or worthwhile.

We have no control over and do not guarantee the (i) quality, safety, success, accuracy, or legality of any 1-on-1 Session or any content associated with a 1-on-1 Session, (ii) accuracy of any information provided during or about a 1-on-1 Session, or (iii) ability of any Host to complete a transaction. 

We are not liable for the acts or omissions of any third parties, including Hosts or other third parties that help us provide the Services, that a Host chooses to assist with an event, or that you choose to use or contract with when signing up for, scheduling, or participating in a 1-on-1 Session.

Some 1-on-1 Sessions may carry inherent risk and by participating in a 1-on-1 Session, you choose to assume those risks voluntarily. For example, some 1-on-1 Sessions may carry risk of illness, bodily injury, disability, or death, and you freely and willfully assume those risks by choosing to participate in those events.

The disclaimers in these 1-on-1 Terms apply to the maximum extent permitted by law. If any warranties are required by applicable law, they will be limited to the shortest duration allowed. 


Information that you provide or that we or our partners collect in connection with any 1-on-1 Session is subject to our Privacy Policy as well as the Privacy Policy of
