Terms of Service

SOMO is a meeting point between individuals and entities within the field of training.

SOMO provides access to information related to courses, course providers and other content and services within the area of education and learning (hereinafter “content”).

Use of the Website

Access to or use of the website confers the status of USER, whether the User is a Course Provider or an individual.

While browsing or using the tools and services offered by SOMO, the User agrees to comply with the legal terms of service and Privacy Policy.
In addition, the General Terms of Contract apply and must be adhered to in the case of Premium Services for Course Providers.

The User agrees to make appropriate use of the content and services offered by SOMO on its website.
Inappropriate use of content includes, but is not limited to:

  • for activities that are illicit in nature or that are contrary to good conduct and public order;
  • to cause damage to the physical or logical systems of SOMO or its Users;
  • to attempt to access or use email addresses of other Users and modify or manipulate their messages or registration information.
In cases where the User must complete a registration process in order to access a service, the User is responsible for providing accurate and truthful information. Registration may result in the provision of a password, of which the User agrees to make appropriate and confidential use.

Ownership and Intellectual and Industrial Property

SOMO itself, or as an assignee, is the owner of all intellectual and industrial property rights on its web pages, including all elements contained on its web pages (such as brand, images, sound, audio, video, texts, logos, colour combinations, structure and design, computer programmes or software necessary for use or access, etc.).

Pursuant to Kenyan and international intellectual property regulation, it is expressly prohibited to reproduce, distribute or communicate publicly, all or any of the content of this website, in particular content created by SOMO, to commercial ends, on any device or by any technical means, without the authorisation of SOMO.

The User agrees to respect the Intellectual and Industrial Property Rights held by SOMO.
The User can view the elements of the website and even print, copy or store them on the hard drive of their computer or other device, providing it is for personal or private use only. The User must refrain from deleting, altering, avoiding or manipulating any protective device or security system put in place on the website pages.

Publishing Courses and any Other Content Added by Course Providers or Users

The main objective of SOMO is to provide individuals with the maximum information on all existing courses and to offer both private and public Course Providers (colleges, universities and any other type of education provider) the opportunity to use the services of SOMO to promote their courses and subsequently increase enrolments and bookings.

In addition, SOMO gives any User the opportunity to include all kinds of information that they may wish to share with other SOMO Users, for example, their opinion on courses or Course Providers.

By adding content on SOMO, the User (Course Provider or Individual) declares legitimate ownership of the intellectual and industrial property rights of that material, or confirms that they have authorisation to distribute and communicate the content.
The User thus authorises and grants SOMO the content for an indefinite time period and for any audience, to be reproduced and communicated publicly through any physical or electronic means, mainly via Internet (on any device) and email.

Any User that adds content and/or information to SOMO (courses or opinions, for example) gives their express consent for this material to be published and indexed on Google, other search engines or any other means of promotion.

Publishing Information on Courses and Course Providers

SOMO stipulates the following regulations for content published by Users:

  • The User must publish content of the best quality possible.
  • All information published by the User must be legal and true and by no means violate third party rights or the prevailing regulation. To this end, the User guarantees the authenticity of all information published on SOMO.
  • It is also the responsibility of the User to keep any programs or degrees published on SOMO up-to-date and in accordance with their current situation.
  • The content published, the prices and treatment of User data is the sole responsibility of the User. The User is also fully responsible for any damages caused by the content to SOMO or third-party Users.
  • It is the Higher Education Center’s responsibility to answer the Users interested in their programs or degrees appropriately and promptly, and to use the User data sent to them by SOMO correctly.
  • The inclusion of information on programs and Education Centers does not imply any type of association, fusion or participation of SOMO with the Higher Education Center or advertising entity in question, unless SOMO stipulates this expressly in the terms and conditions or on the website.

Publishing Opinions

Users can add their opinion on Education Centers and Programs published on SOMO either by phone, on the website, or via any other means validated by SOMO.

  • is allegedly illicit under national, European or international regulation or that involves allegedly illicit activity or is contrary to the principles of good conduct.
  • infringes the provisions of the legal Terms of SOMO.
  • violates basic human rights, exploits the weaknesses of the User, lacks basic internet courtesy, offends or generates negative opinion among our Users or third parties. In particular, by way of example and without limitation: violates the legal rights of third parties; that favours or encourages the creation, maintenance or promotion of businesses related to pornography, obscene materials or the management of erotic contacts; is related to fortune-telling, tarot, the occult or similar; and in general, any content that SOMO considers inappropriate for its Users, in particular, minors.
  • And in general terms, any content that violates the principles of legality, honesty, responsibility or the protection of human dignity, of minors, of public order, of personal privacy, of the consumer and the protection of intellectual and industrial property rights.
