Terms and conditions
The LLO.LU Platform (Léier Lëtzebuergesch online/Learn Luxembourgish online) is an online Luxembourgish language learning service (“LLO.LU”) run by ALTISSIA INTERNATIONAL S.A. (“ALTISSIA“) in the name of and on behalf of the National Institute of Languages (INL) under the supervision of the Luxembourg Ministry of Education, Children and Youth. It is for all persons wishing to learn the Luxembourgish language without age or geographical restrictions (the “Learner“).
Any Learner accessing the services and courses offered on the LLO.LU Platform by ALTISSIA in the name and on behalf of the INL undertakes to comply unreservedly with the present conditions of use of the LLO.LU Platform (the End User Licence Agreement, “EULA“), which will be presented for acceptance by the Learner before they can access the LLO.LU Platform’s services.
The National Institute of Languages, under the supervision of the Luxembourg Ministry of Education and ALTISSIA, may regularly update the EULA. The updated EULA will automatically govern the Learner’s access to the LLO.LU Platform as soon as it is online. Learners are therefore invited to regularly check for and read the updated versions of the EULA.
