NCLab’s Intellectual Property
Use of Unauthorized Resources
NCLab defines unauthorized resources as a website, a PDF file, social media page, chat session, etc. that contains solutions to exercises, practical tasks, or quizzes to any NCLab courses. All NCLab’s course content is considered NCLab’s intellectual property and as such is protected by copyright laws. Additionally, NCLab’s course content is never released to the general public. Therefore, if solutions to exercises, practical tasks, or quizzes were fraudulently obtained, using such unauthorized resources constitutes cheating. Providers of such unauthorized resources are in violation of NCLab’s intellectual property rights and nondisclosure agreements. If you are ever unsure whether the resources you are using is authorized or unauthorized, please contact email@example.com with your question or inquiry.
Consequences for Students and Trainees Caught Using Unauthorized Resources
Despite a student’s or trainee’s knowledge of whether content is considered unauthorized, if a student or trainee uses unauthorized resources in order to solve exercises, practical tasks, and/or quizzes, the student or trainee will be banned from taking NCLab’s courses and training programs for at least 12 months. In addition, his or her course or training program progress will be invalidated. No fees will be refunded. As mentioned above, these actions will be taken even if the student or trainee did not have fraudulent intentions. If you think you have discovered a site or provider that appears to be selling or distributing unauthorized resources containing NCLab’s course content, please inform NCLab by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
