Udemy has grown significantly over the last several years because of your commitment to learning and teaching through our global marketplace. To better serve our growing community, we’re updating our Terms of Use, Privacy Policy, and Instructor Terms, making them clearer and easier to understand.

We encourage you to carefully review the new Terms. Some of the key updates we’ve made include:

  • Easier to understand: We’ve reorganized and rewritten most of our policies to make them clearer and easier to understand.
  • Clarity on dispute resolution: The updated dispute resolution section explains how to best handle disputes with Udemy.
  • A more comprehensive Privacy Policy: Our revamped Privacy Policy provides more detail on the information we collect and how we use it. As always, we do not (and will not) sell your data.
  • Updated Notification Period: We’re updating how we notify you about material changes to our Terms so we can better communicate with you.

The old and new versions of the Terms of Service and Privacy Policy can be found at Udemy.com/terms through August 19, 2016. We encourage you to review these terms on your own.

These Terms are effective immediately for first-time users on or after August
2, 2016. Existing users will be asked to agree to these updated Terms no later than August 19, 2016, at which time the Terms will become effective for them as well.

Adopting the new Udemy Terms will help us stay focused on building a great learning marketplace to help you achieve your learning and teaching goals. Thank you for being a member of our community!
