Terms and Conditions of Service 

International Police Organization Academy's terms and conditions, as well as any training materials. 

Before using or gaining access to the Learning Management System or any other services provided by the INTERNATIONAL POLICE ORGANIZATION (the "Academy"), please carefully read the following terms. You accept and agree to all of the conditions and covenants imposed in this agreement by using the Learning Management System or any other services provided by the Academy. You are not permitted to use the Learning Management System or any other Academy services if you do not agree to these conditions. The general terms and conditions of UNIPOL INTERNATIONAL UNIVERSITY are supplemented by and added to by these terms and conditions. 


These Supplemental Terms and Conditions shall be governed by the following definitions: 

The terms "Agreement" and "Terms" apply to this set of terms and conditions as well as any updates (and including the General Terms and Conditions). 

The term "IPOA" refers to any website held by UNIPOL INTERNATIONAL UNIVERSITY, 408 N. 4 St. Canton, Kansas 67428 USA Not For Profit Articles of Incorporation, as well as its parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, successors, and assigns. 

"Website" or "Site" refers to both and its individual components collectively. 

The subscription-based database of audio-visual works that is accessible through the site and is a part of it is referred to as the "Learning Management System" or "LMS."

"Subscriber" refers to a person or entity that purchases or uses a subscription to the Learning Management System (LMS). A subscriber can be a "Multi-User Subscriber", which is a subscriber who buys a subscription for multiple users, or a "Single-User Subscriber", which is a subscriber who purchases a subscription for only one user. "Educator" refers to a teacher at a recognized K-12 school, college, or university. An educator is also considered a subscriber.

"User" refers to any party who accesses the site. If you are accessing the site as an employee or agent of another entity, "user" refers to both you and your principal. "You" or "Your" refers to the user. If you are accessing the site as an employee or agent of another entity, "You" or "Your" refers to both the user and the user's principal.

"Access" or "Accessing" refers to accessing, using, viewing, or obtaining information on the site. "Content" refers to both "Premium Content" and "Standard Content". "Exercise Files" are files prepared by authors for use with the training videos and other media. "Premium Content" includes training videos and other media available on the LMS, including the Exercise Files. "Standard Content" refers to training videos and other media available on the LMS, but excludes the Exercise Files.

"IPO Academy" grants each subscriber a limited, non-exclusive, non-sublicensable, and non-transferable license to access the content and information available on the Learning Management System (LMS). This license is subject to the payment of applicable subscription fees and compliance with these terms. A "Multi-User Subscriber" may only allow its employees and agents to access the LMS. If the subscription for the Multi-User Subscriber ends, the employees and agents will no longer have access to the LMS. Each Multi-User Subscriber must ensure that the LMS is not accessed by more users than the number authorized in their subscription. Each user is allowed to access the LMS from any internet connection. A "Multi-User Subscriber Administrator" designated by the subscriber will oversee and be responsible for managing user accounts.

You agree that IPO Academy is the sole owner of all content and all legal rights related to it. You are not allowed to copy, modify, create derivative works from, decompile, or reverse engineer the content. IPO Academy owns any modifications made to or derivative works created from the content. IPO Academy strives to provide continuous access to the LMS for its subscribers, but there may be times when access is unavailable due to conditions beyond IPO Academy's control, such as force majeure, acts of God, power outages, and the actions of hackers. Access may also be unavailable due to software issues, server downtime, increased internet traffic, programming errors, regular maintenance, and other related reasons. IPO Academy will not be liable for any damages resulting from an interruption in service.

IPO Academy reserves the right to change, modify, or discontinue any aspect or feature of the site at any time. These changes, modifications, additions, or deletions will be effective immediately upon notice, which may be made by posting the changes on the site. Users are responsible for ensuring they have sufficient and compatible hardware, software, telecommunications equipment, and internet service to use the site.

The following actions are strictly prohibited for all users of the site:

  1. Transmitting, installing, uploading, or otherwise transferring any virus or other harmful item or process to the site that could damage the site or IPO Academy's computers, servers, or databases.
