Is it legal for them to block access to courses I've purchased and previously had access to ? I haven't read the new T&C's yet. but it strikes me as barely legal for them to block my access to content if I refuse them? 


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. Over the coming days, we'll be asking you to agree to the new Terms, which will be effective for all existing users midnight PST August 19, 2016. These changes are important to our business, so we are expediting the day they take effect. We hope these updated Terms will be easier for you to understand, and we encourage you to read them thoroughly. Here’s a summary of the key updates:


  • 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.

Please know that if you do not accept, your Udemy account will remain active, however, you will not be able to access your Udemy courses or the Udemy marketplace until you accept.

Both the old and new versions of the Terms of Service and Privacy Policy can be found here through Wednesday, August 19, 2016. After August 19, we will only be displaying the new Terms.
