1. Our Services

Free-Apply.com is a global catalog of universities and colleges. We are an open platform, information to which was contributed by the site users and taken from publicly available sources.

Through the Platform, we (Free Apply LLC and affiliated partners (distribution partners)) provide an online platform through which Service Providers - within their professional activities (B2B or B2C) - can advertise, promote, market and/or offer their products and services for ordering, buying, reserving or renting, and visitors of the Platform can find products or services, compare, make an order, purchase or payment. By using Our Services (i.e. by making a Request through Our Services), you enter into a direct (legally binding) contractual relationship with the Service Provider with which you reserve or purchase a product or service. From the moment you make your Request, we act solely as an intermediary between you and the Service Provider, submitting the relevant information of your Request to the relevant Service Provider and sending you a confirmation email on behalf of the Service Provider. Free-Apply.com does not (re)sell, rent or offer any services or products.

When rendering Our Services, the posted information is based on information provided by Service Providers on the Internet and/or in printed thematic publications (official websites of Service Providers, thematic resources, booklets and catalogs) and on the information provided to us by Service Providers themselves. Service Providers that host and promote their Services on the Platform have access to our systems and admin panels through which they are fully responsible for updating prices, tariffs, fees, availability of services, rules, conditions and other information displayed on our Platform.

Although we do our best to ensure the quality of Our Services, we do not verify the validity and cannot guarantee the accuracy or completeness of all information, nor are we responsible for any errors (including manifest and typographical errors), any interruptions (caused by (temporary and/or partial) breakdown, repair, upgrade or maintenance of our Platform or otherwise), inaccurate, misleading or false information or non-delivery of information.

Each Service Provider is responsible under any conditions for the accuracy, completeness and correctness of the (descriptive) information (including tariffs, fees, prices, rules, conditions and availability of services) displayed on our Platform.

Our Platform does not constitute and should not be considered as a recommendation or proof of the quality, service level or rating, classification of any proposed Service Provider (or its facilities, products, services, facilities or vehicles (main or additional)).

Our Service is provided for individual and non-commercial use only. Therefore, you are not allowed to resell, create external hyperlinks, use, copy, monitor (e.g. spider, scrape), display, download or reproduce any part of content or information, software, queries, programs, products or services available on our Platform for any commercial or competitive activity or purpose.

2. Tariffs & Crossed-Out Prices

The prices offered by the Service Providers on our Platform are highly competitive. All Service prices include VAT/sales tax and other taxes (which may vary) and fees unless otherwise indicated on our Platform or in the electronic confirmation of enrollment/reservation.

The price is for one person, the validity period is indicated on the confirmation of enrollment/reservation (if applicable). If the Service Provider charges a cancellation or no-show fee/refund, moreover, relevant fees and taxes may be added (including tourist/city tax).

Sometimes lower prices of products or services are available on our Platform, however, these tariffs offered by Service Providers may carry special restrictions and conditions, for example, an enrollment/a reservation can be non-cancelable or non-refundable.

Please read the relevant enrollment/reservation, product and service conditions before starting your enrollment or making a reservation.

The currency converter is provided for informational purposes only and should not be relied upon as accurate and real-time: actual prices may vary.

Obvious errors (including misprints) are not binding.

3. Privacy

Free-Apply.com cares about your privacy. Read the Privacy and Cookies Policy for further information.

4. Basic plan. Free placement on Free-Apply.com for Service Providers

Posting a university or college profile in the Free-Apply.com is absolutely free for all educational institutions worldwide. We do not require any payments for using the system. By default, all university profiles are posted as the Basic plan.

5. Pro plan. Premium placement on Free-Apply.com for Service Providers

We sell premium Services that provide our Service providers customized functionality and tools (including getting more leads than it has on the Basic plan, getting leads direct contacts and other).

6. Partner plan. Premium placement on Free-Apply.com for Service Providers

Unless otherwise stated, our service is free of charge for customers, as unlike many other companies, we do not charge you for Our Services or add additional fees (for registration of enrollment/reservation) to the tariff. You pay the Service Provider the amount as indicated on the invoice (plus all relevant applicable taxes and fees if they are not included in the price).

Service Providers pay a commission (a small percentage of the product price (e.g. study fee)) to Free-Apply.com after the user has consummated the product or service of the Service Provider (e.g. after the student has started studying at the university (and paid for studies)).

Service Providers can improve their ranking by increasing the commission (tool "Become more visible"). Using the "Become more visible" tool (by paying a higher commission percentage in return for a higher position in the ranking) remains at the discretion of each Service Provider and can be used from time to time and for certain products. The algorithm of ranking takes into account an increase in commission and on its basis determines the default ranking.

Only Service Providers, which have established commercial relations with Free-Apply.com (through an agreement), will be granted access to the Platform (to promote their products B2B and/or B2C). Free-Apply.com is an open platform (like Amazon or eBay), where end users can offer their product themselves (i.e. Free-Apply.com is not a C2C platform); Free-Apply.com does not allow non-professional parties to offer their products on or through Free-Apply.com.

7. Credit Card or Bank Transfer

If applicable and available, certain Service Providers may offer a possibility to pay for the enrollment/reservation (wholly or partly in accordance with the conditions of the Service Provider) to the Service Provider during the enrollment/making reservation process using a secure online payment (depending on the support of this function by your bank). For certain products and services, Free-Apply.com facilitates (through third-party payment systems) payment of the relevant product or service on behalf of the Service Provider (Free-Apply.com never acts as a seller of a product or service). Secure payment is processed through a third-party payment system from your credit/debit card or from your bank account to the bank account of the Service Provider.

Each payment that is processed by us on behalf of and transferred to the Service Provider is a payment (part) of the relevant product or service cost and is taken into account in the final settlement. The payment is not refundable.

Note that for certain (non-refundable) tariffs or special offers, Services Providers may require full payment by bank transfer (if applicable) or by credit card, so your credit card can be pre-authorized or charged (sometimes without the possibility of refund) during enrollment/reservation process. Check the details of the enrollment/reservation of the product or service before starting enrollment/reservation procedure. Free-Apply.com is not liable for any (authorized, allegedly unauthorized or wrong) charging by the Service Provider and does not refund any amounts legally written-off or pre-blocked charge by the Service Provider (including prepayment, fine or cancellation of enrollment/reservation) to your credit card.

In case your credit card was used by third parties illegally or not for its intended purpose, most banks and credit companies will cover and pay all charges caused by such fraud (sometimes deducting EUR 50 or equivalent in local currency).

8. Prepayment, Cancellation, No-Show and Important Information

By enrolling/making reservation with a Service Provider, you accept and agree to the cancellation policy, the regulations in case of an enrollment failure, and to all additional conditions and rules (of service provision) of the Service Provider that may be applied to your service (including important information from Service Provider, which is published on our Platform and the applicable internal rules of the Service Provider). The relevant rules and conditions (provision/purchase/use) can be obtained from the relevant Service Provider. The general cancellation/non-enrollment/non-show rules of each Service Provider are available on our Platform on the Service Provider page, during the enrollment/reservation process and in the electronic confirmation of enrollment/reservation (if applicable). Note that certain tariffs, fees and special offers are not cancellable, refundable or changeable. The Service Provider may charge the applicable non-refundable amount even in case of enrollment/reservation cancellation or write off the cancellation fee. We recommend reading carefully the details of the enrollment/reservation of the product or service and the special rules prior to enrolling/making a reservation.

Note that an enrollment/reservation requiring down payment or prepayment (full or partial) can be canceled (without prior notice or warning) if the relevant (remaining) amount cannot be collected in full on the relevant date or date of payment in accordance with the enrolling/reservation and the policy of the Service Provider.

Cancellation and prepayment policy may vary per segment, product or Service.

Read carefully the important information (below the types of Services or at the bottom of the Service Provider page on the Platform) and on your reservation confirmation (this information may in particular concern age restrictions, security deposit, special cancellation conditions and other conditions for group enrollment/reservation, extra beds, breakfast and pets when providing hostel).

You bear all the risks connected with late payment, incorrect debit or credit card data, or insufficient funds on your card. You are not entitled to claim a refund of any (non-refundable) prepaid amount, except when the Service Provider agrees or otherwise decides in accordance with its policy (pre-payment and cancellation).

If you want to review, adjust or cancel the enrollment/reservation, revert to the confirmation email and follow the instructions therein. Note that you may be charged for cancellation of the enrollment/reservation in accordance with the cancellation, pre-payment and no-show policy of the Service Provider, or not be entitled to claim any (pre)paid amount? We recommend reading carefully the cancellation, (pre)payment and no-show policy before the enrolling/making your reservation, and make further payments on time in accordance with the enrollment/reservation requirements.

If you change your plans, arrive late or only the next day after the one indicated in the reservation confirmation, (timely/promptly) notify the Service Provider. So the Service Provider will know when to expect you to avoid cancellation of the Service (enrollment/reservation) and charge of the cancellation fee. Our support team can contact the Service Provider for you if needed. Free-Apply.com is not responsible for the consequences of your delay, as well as the cancellation of the enrollment/reservation or the cancellation fee charged by the Service Provider.

9. (Further) Correspondence and Communication

By using the website, you agree to receive emails: information, confirmation letters, letters about notices on the site, advertisements, information about relevant programs, certain data and special offers (including special offers from third parties), as well as emails, which we can send to you immediately after your enrollment, start of studies or check-in at the dormitory, with the proposal to fill out our feedback form about the Service Provider. See our "Privacy and Cookies" for information about how we may contact you.

Free-Apply.com disclaims any responsibility for any communications by or with the Service Provider on or through its platform. You cannot claim any rights based on any request or message sent to or received from the Service Provider, or confirmation (in any form) that a request or a message has been received. Free-Apply.com cannot guarantee that the request or message will be (properly and timely) received/read, executed or accepted by the Service Provider.

To complete and guarantee your enrollment/reservation, you must specify your correct email address. We are not responsible for (and have no obligation to verify) any incorrect or misspelled email address, or incorrectly specified mobile phone number or credit card number.

To confirm your enrollment/reservation, you need to ask the Service Provider to send you a confirmation via Our Services ("Chat").

In addition, we are not responsible for the inaccuracy or incorrectness of the information provided by the Service Provider.

Due to the continuous update and adjustments of prices and availability of the Services, we highly recommend checking the cost of the Service prior to your enrollment/reservation.

10. Ranking as in "Recommended Service Providers", rating and TOP

The default ranking of the Services Providers on our Platform is "Free-Apply.com Recommendation" (any similar wording). This is the "Default Ranking". Default Ranking is based on a complex, constantly changing algorithm that takes into account a multitude of criteria in order to match the search query with the search results in an optimal way.

The order in which Service Providers are displayed differs for different users and depends on their search queries and a variety of other criteria, for example, the popularity of the Service Provider among website users (e.g. number of views), the history of interaction with the support service (including the number and types of complaints), some data of enrollment/reservations (e.g. the number of enrollment/reservations, cancellations, conversion level, availability of study programs, etc.), as well as (past) browsing activities of a visitor. The default ranking algorithm also includes data of on-time payment of commission by the Service Provider and the commission percentage.

For convenience, we also offer many other ways of ranking Service Providers. A user can choose to rank the search results on basis of lowest price, along with the category of Services, etc. Thus, a user has full control over the presentation of Service Providers in the search results.

In some cities and regions, Free-Apply.com implements a preferred partnership program that allows certain Service Providers, corresponding to the terms of the program, to be displayed above the rest of the Service Providers in the default “Recommended” ranking for the relevant city/region. The number of points, stars or other indicators of the rating displayed for Service Providers not necessarily correspond to the world rankings but can be based on them.

Only customers who have used the Service will be asked to leave feedback on Free-Apply.com and assess certain aspects of their experience with the Service Provider. The completed review may be (a) posted on the relevant Service Provider's page on our Platform with the sole purpose of informing (future) customers of your opinion on the service and quality of the Service Provider, and (b) (wholly or partly) used by Free -apply.com at its sole discretion (e.g. for marketing, advertising or improvement of our service) on our Platform or social media platforms, newsletters, special promotions, applications or other channels that are owned or controlled by Free-Apply.com or our business partners. The default ranking is determined by the publication date in conjunction with some other criteria (such as language, comments). The review of the customer who [always] leaves full and detailed reviews ("Explorer") can have the highest position. You can sort reviews by various criteria, and apply filters (for example, by group, date, language, and rating).

Free-Apply.com allows the Service Provider to respond to a review. We reserve the right to adjust, reject or remove reviews at our sole discretion. Free-Apply.com does not pay any compensation or other rewards to a customer for publishing the review. The review forms are sent only for conducting a survey and do not contain any further (commercial) offers, invitations or incentives.

Free-Apply.com does not publish reviews that include:

  • Profanity, obscene content, aggressive statements, discriminatory, and threats or insults;
  • Mention the full names or personal attacks on employees;
  • Promotion of illegal activities (for example, related to drugs or prostitution);
  • Websites, email addresses, phone numbers, credit card details, as well as politically sensitive comments.
