ACCOUNT REQUIREMENTS

In order to use our Services (including to purchase and enroll in a course or to submit a course for publication), we may ask you to create an Account and select a password and/or provide us with certain personal information, which may include your name, birth date, email address, and, in some cases, payment information. This information will be held and used in accordance with Skillzcafe’s Privacy Policy. You agree to supply Skillzcafe with accurate, complete, and up-to-date information, particularly your email address.

You are responsible for maintaining the security of your Account. You may not transfer your account to someone else or use someone else’s account without their permission. If you contact us to request access to an Account, we will not grant you such access unless you can provide us the login credential information for that account. Don’t share your Account details with others or allow others to access or use your Account. We will treat all acts performed through your Account as being performed by you. You therefore accept responsibility for all acts done using your Account, whether or not authorized by you, including purchases made using any payment instrument (for example, credit card or Google Pay), and you understand you may be held liable for losses incurred by us or any other user of the Services caused by someone else using your Account.

If you become aware of any actual or suspected loss, theft, fraud, or unauthorized use of your Account or Account password, please tell us immediately by contacting our support team.

To create an account on Skillzcafe and use our Services, Learners and Instructors must be at least 18 years of age. Anyone not meeting the age requirements can set up an account with the help of a parent or a legal guardian. Your account will be terminated in case we discover that you have not met the requirements listed above. We may separately request you to verify your identity under the Instructor Agreement before you are authorized to submit a course for publication on Skillzcafe.

SUB-LICENSE TO LEARNERS

Under our Instructor Agreement, when Instructors publish a course on Skillzcafe, they grant Skillzcafe a license to offer a sub-license of the published course to learners. This means that we have the right to sub-license the course to the learners who enroll in the course. As a learner, when you enroll in a course, whether it’s a free or paid course, you are getting from Skillzcafe a license to view the course via the Skillzcafe platform and Services, and Skillzcafe is the licensor of record. Courses are licensed, and not sold, to you. This license does not give you any right to resell the course in any manner (including by sharing account information with a purchaser or illegally downloading the course and sharing it on torrent sites).

Skillzcafe essentially grants you (as a Learner) a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable license to access and view the courses and associated content for which you have paid all required fees, solely for your personal, non-commercial, educational purposes through the Services, in accordance with these Terms and any conditions or restrictions associated with a particular courses or feature of our Services. All other uses are expressly prohibited. You may not reproduce, redistribute, transmit, assign, sell, broadcast, rent, share, lend, modify, adapt, edit, create derivative works of, sublicense, or otherwise transfer or use any course unless we give you explicit permission to do so in a written agreement signed by a Skillzcafe authorized representative. This also applies to content you can access via any of our APIs.

We generally give a lifetime access license to our Learners when they enroll in a course. However, we reserve the right to revoke any license to access and use courses at any point in time in the event where we decide or are obligated to disable access to a course due to legal or policy reasons, for example, if the course you enrolled in is the object of a copyright complaint. The lifetime access is not applicable to add-on features and services associated with a course, for example translation captions of courses may be disabled by Instructors at any time, and an Instructor may decide at any time to no longer provide teaching assistance or Q&A services in association with a course. To be clear, the lifetime access is to the course content but not to the Instructor.

Instructors may not grant licenses to their courses to Learners directly and any such direct license shall be null and void and a violation of these Terms.

PRICING

The terms provided in the Instructor Agreement and Pricing and Promotions Policy determines the prices of our courses. On some occasions, the prices offered on website may vary from the prices offered on our mobile applications or TV applications, due to mobile and TV platform providers’ pricing systems and their policies around implementing sales and promotions.

We regularly run promotions and sales for our courses and certain courses are only available at discounted prices for a set period of time and may be available to new users only. The price applicable to a course will be the price at the time you checkout and complete your purchase of the course.

Skillzcafe holds the rights to and in its discretion may apply additional discounts on the courses at its Services which may affect the revenue of Instructors. Skillzcafe will not be under any obligation to compensate the Instructors for any loss of revenue on account of such discounts offered by Skillzcafe.

On some occasions, Instructors may offer courses for free to the Learners on our Services. Skillzcafe will not charge any fees from the Learners in connection the courses offered for free by the Instructors.

If you are a student located in a country where use and sales tax, goods and services tax, or value added tax is applicable to consumer sales, we are responsible for collecting and remitting that tax to the proper tax authorities. In certain countries, the price you see may include such taxes.

PAYMENTS AND REFUNDS

Skillzcafe bills for the purchase of courses made by you. If you are logged into/Logged out of your account, the listed currency you see for the purchases made by you is based on country where you are located. We do not enable users to see pricing in other currencies.

Maintaining accurate and current billing information is a mandatory condition of maintaining your Skillzcafe’s account.

Further you may authorize us to charge your debit or credit card or process other means of payment (such as direct debit, or mobile wallet) for those fees. Skillzcafe works with third party payment processing partners to offer you the most convenient payment methods in your country and to keep your payment information secure.

When you make a purchase, you agree not to use an invalid or unauthorized payment method. If your payment method fails and you still get access to the course you are enrolling in, you agree to pay us the corresponding fees within thirty (30) days of notification from us. We reserve the right to disable access to any course for which we have not received adequate payments.

Skillzcafe does not provide any kind of refund at this stage for the purchases made by you on our Services.

OWNERSHIP

The content you post as a Learner or Instructor (including courses) remains yours.

ACCESS SKILLZCAFE AT YOUR OWN RISK

Skillzcafe is an online platform and provides a marketplace for Instructors to create and share educational courses and Learners to purchase the courses shared by the Instructors.

We therefore do not guarantee in any manner the reliability, validity, accuracy or truthfulness of the courses. If you enroll a course, you rely on any information and access the course provided by a Instructor at your own risk.

By using the Services, you may be exposed to content that you consider offensive, indecent, or objectionable.

You assume full responsibility for the choices you make before, during and after your enrollment in a course.

When you interact directly with a Learner or a Instructor, you must be careful about the types of personal information that you share. We do not control what Learners and Instructors do with the information they obtain from other users on the platform and hence we will not be liable for any damage caused to any party.

Instructor Terms

Last updated on: December 10, 2019

Skillzcafe is an online marketplace platform which allows Instructors to create and share educational courses to Learners. To start on Skillzcafe, an Instructor is required to sign up for opening an account on Skillzcafe’s Services or sign this document and agree to abide by these Instructor Terms (hereinafter “Terms”). These Terms are also incorporated by Reference into our Terms of Use. Any capitalized terms that aren't defined in these Terms are defined as specified in the Terms of Use.

CHANGES TO THESE TERMS

We reserve the right, at our discretion, to change, modify, add, or remove portions of the Terms at any time by posting the amended Terms on our site or within the Services. We may provide additional notice, such as an e-mail message or messaging within the Services, of any material changes. Unless we state otherwise, changes are effective when posted. New versions of the Terms will be accessible at www.skillzcafe.com or from within the Services. If you continue to use the Services after the changes are posted, you are agreeing that the changes apply to your continued use of the Services.

INSTRUCTOR REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES

You as an Instructor, will be solely responsible for all the content that is posted by you on Skillzcafe, including but not limited to lectures, discourses, tests, examinations, coding exercises, quizzes, practice tests, assignments, answers, and announcements ("Posted Content").

SUB-LICENSE TO LEARNERS

You grant Skillzcafe the rights and authorization to sub-license your Posted Content to Learners as detailed in the Terms of Use, directly or through third parties. This includes the right to add captions or otherwise modify content to ensure accessibility.

Unless otherwise agreed, you have the right to remove all or any portion of your Posted Content from the Services at any time. Except as otherwise agreed, Skillzcafe's right to sublicense the rights in this section will terminate with respect to new users 60 days after the Posted Content's removal. However, rights given to students before the Posted Content's removal will continue in accordance with the terms of those licenses (including any grants of lifetime access) and Skillzcafe’s right to use such Posted Content for marketing purposes shall survive termination.

We may record all or any part of your Posted Content for quality control and for delivering, marketing, promoting, demonstrating, or operating the Services. You grant Skillzcafe permission to use your name, likeness, voice, and image in connection with offering, delivering, marketing, promoting, demonstrating, and selling the Services, your Posted Content, or Skillzcafe's content, and you waive any rights of privacy, publicity, or other rights of a similar nature, to the extent permissible under applicable law.

SECURITY GUIDELINES

Skillzcafe reserves the right to terminate the account of Instructors, remove Posted Content, and suspend payments, for any reason at any time, without prior notice, inter alia where:

  • an Instructor does not comply with the Representations and Warranties mentioned above;
  • a Posted Content does not comply with our Terms of Use or any other policies or rules;
  • an Instructor engages the services of a marketer or other business partner who violates Skillzcafe's policies; or
  • as determined by Skillzcafe in its sole discretion.

CO-INSTRUCTORS AND TEACHING ASSISTANTS

The Skillzcafe platform allows you to add other users as co-Instructors or teaching assistants for courses that you manage. By adding a co-Instructor or teaching assistant, you understand that you are authorizing them to take certain actions that affect your Skillzcafe account and courses. Skillzcafe is not able to advise on any questions or mediate any disputes between you and such users. It will be the responsibility of the Instructors to set a revenue share for the co-Instructors or Teaching Assistants and ensure payments are made to them in a timely manner.

RELATIONSHIP WITH LEARNERS

Instructors don't have a direct contractual relationship with learners, so the only information you'll receive about learners is what is provided to you through the Services. You agree that you will not use the data you receive for any purpose other than providing your services to those learners on the Skillzcafe platform, and that you won't solicit additional personal data or store students' personal data outside the Skillzcafe platform. You will indemnify Skillzcafe against any claims arising from your use of students' personal data.

PRICING OF POSTED CONTENT

At Skillzcafe, Instructors will have the discretion to fix the base price for the courses offered by them. The Instructors will also have the discretion to provide discounts on the courses offered by them to Learners. Skillzcafe and the Instructors can also offer separate discount coupons to Learners over and above the initial discount offered by the Instructors. These discount coupons can be availed by the Learners at the time of purchasing a course with the restriction that only one discount coupon can be used at a given time.

Alternatively, an Instructor may also choose to offer a course for free to Learners – in which case Skillzcafe will not charge any fees from Learners.

You give us permission to share your courses for free with our employees, with selected partners, and in cases where we need to restore access accounts who have previously purchased your courses. You understand that you will not receive compensation in these cases.

TRANSACTION TAXES

If a student purchases a product or service in a country that requires Skillzcafe to remit national, state, or local sales or use taxes, value added taxes (VAT), or other similar transaction taxes ("Transaction Taxes"), under applicable law, we will collect and remit those Transaction Taxes to the competent tax authorities for those sales. We may increase the sale price at our discretion where we determine that such taxes may be due.

PROMOTIONAL POLICY

Our Promotions Policy includes several marketing programs which will help you increase your revenue potential on Skillzcafe. We hold the rights to select Instructors for these marketing programs at our discretion.

REVENUE SHARE AND PAYMENTS

Our endeavor is to ensure that Learners get high quality content from our Instructors and we understand that it is only possible if the Instructors earn a sizeable amount of revenue from the payments received from the Learners. We want to become an online marketplace platform known for delivering high quality content in its courses provided by the Instructors.

With the above goal in mind, we have derived a simple revenue sharing model for our Instructors. From the amount paid by Learners as course fees for a course provided by an Instructor, the Instructor will receive 85% of the course fees received from Learners. All payment processing fees, any applicable transaction taxes or any other applicable taxes or fees such as handling fees or administrative fees will be deducted from the 85% revenue earned by the Instructor. The revenue share of Skillzcafe will be the remaining 15% of the fees paid by the Learners. If we change this payment rate, we will provide you a 30 day notice via email or by posting a notice through our Services.

Skillzcafe understands the value of its Instructors, and hence it will not charge any commission on any Learner traffic generated by the Instructors through the links generated on Skillzcafe’s platform (“Inorganic Traffic”). However, all payment processing fees, any applicable transaction taxes or any other applicable taxes or fees such as handling fees or administrative fees will be deducted from the revenue earned by the Instructors through the Inorganic Traffic.

Skillzcafe makes all Instructor payments in U.S. dollars (USD) regardless of the currency with which the sale was made. You will assume transaction processing fees, including foreign currency conversion fees and wiring fees.

We pay our Instructors through PayPal or bank transfer. To ensure timely payments are made to you, you need to link your bank account with your Skillzcafe’s account. Please ensure that correct PayPal account or bank details are provided. In the event any payment is transferred by Skillzcafe to a wrong account based on the information by you, you understand and agree that Skillzcafe shall not be held responsible for the erroneous transfer. Our endeavor will be to transfer the payments within 45 days of the end of the month in which the course was sold to Learners.

You must also provide any tax documentation and identifying information such as name, age, email address, etc. necessary for payment of amounts due, and you agree that we have the right to withhold appropriate taxes from your payments. We reserve the right to withhold payments or impose other penalties if we do not receive proper identifying information from you. You understand and fully agree that you are ultimately responsible for any taxes on your income.

We reserve the right not to pay any money to the Instructor in the event of fraud, violations of intellectual property rights, or any other violations identified at the Instructor’s end by Skillzcafe.

INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY

We may authorize you to use our Intellectual Property such as our Trademarks during your relationship with us as a published Instructor subject to the requirements below:

  • You must only use our Intellectual Property such as our Trademarks in connection with the promotion and sale of your Skillzcafe courses or your participation on Skillzcafe; and
  • You must immediately comply if we request that you discontinue use.
  • You must not use our Intellectual Property such as Trademarks in a misleading or disparaging way;
  • You must not use our Intellectual Property such as our Trademarks in a way that implies that we endorse, sponsor, or approve of your courses or services; or
  • You must not use our Intellectual Property such as our Trademarks in a way that violates applicable law or in connection with an obscene, indecent, or unlawful topic or material.

ACCOUNT DELETION RULES

You may delete your account at any point of time by sending us a request @ rb@skillzcafe.com. We will evaluate your account and satisfy that there are no pending payments or any other issues remaining in the account before proceeding to delete the account. We will try to ensure that all pending payments are cleared before the account is deleted. However, there may be occasions when the payment may be cleared later. We will inform you about such instances in advance and ensure that all undisputed payments are cleared timely. You agree that if Learners have previously enrolled in your courses, your name and that Posted Content will remain accessible to those Learners even after your account is deleted.

NATURE OF RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN YOU AND SKILLZCAFE

You and Skillzcafe agree that no joint venture, partnership, employment, contractor, or agency relationship exists between us.
