  1. We may from time to time, offer incentives for our users for initiating via our Site, the application process for course services from Course Service Providers. These incentives may include promotional offers, gifts, awards, privileges, rebates, etc. Provided always that you complete the application process provided by DCC for each applicable course service offered on our Site, and meet all other eligibility criteria for each incentive, DCC will not place any limit on the total number of incentives that you may receive from DCC unless otherwise stated. However, in respect of each course showcased on our Site, an eligible DCC user is only entitled to claim the incentive from DCC for each course, once. For the avoidance of doubt, no DCC user will be entitled to claim an incentive from DCC in respect of an application for a course (i) for which the user has previously claimed an incentive from DCC, or (ii) for which the user seeks an identical replacement course. DCC retains the sole and absolute discretion on whether a user is entitled to and/or eligible for the incentive(s) that DCC may offer from time to time. You may find out more about the availability of incentives offered by us by visiting our Site.

Any such incentive(s) offered by any Course Service Provider are subject to the terms and conditions which the Course Service Provider may provide. Any dispute arising in relation to such incentive(s) offered by the Course Service Provider is to be resolved directly with the relevant Course Service Provider. We are not obliged to assist or act on your behalf in communicating with the Course Service Provider.
