Except as otherwise agreed, WeSmartly's right to sublicense the rights in this section will terminate with respect to new users 60 days after the Submitted Content's removal.

We may record all or any part of your Submitted Content for quality control and for delivering, marketing, promoting, demonstrating, or operating the Services. You grant WeSmartly permission to use your name, likeness, voice, and image in connection with offering, delivering, marketing, promoting, demonstrating, and selling the Services, your Submitted Content, or WeSmartly's content, and you waive any rights of privacy, publicity, or other rights of a similar nature, to the extent permissible under applicable law.
Co-Instructors and Teaching Assistants
The WeSmartly 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 WeSmartly account and courses. WeSmartly is not able to advise on any questions or mediate any disputes between you and such users. If your co-instructors have an assigned revenue share, their share will be paid out of your earned revenue share based on the ratios you have specified in your Course Management settings as of the date of the purchase.
Relationship to Other Users
Online Course vendors don't have a direct contractual relationship with students, so the only information you'll receive about students 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 students on the WeSmartly platform, and that you won't solicit additional personal data or store students' personal data outside the WeSmartly platform. You will indemnify WeSmartly against any claims arising from your use of students' personal data.
WeSmartly does not review all Content posted on the Service, although we use available technology to filter it or process the screen to locate certain illegal content (such as child pornography) and other types of offensive content or behavior (for example, usage patterns that give away "spam" or hunting for passwords or identities).
We may enter or publish user or browser information within the Service (a) when required by law (for example, if we are asked for a subpoena or search warrant); (b) to assist you with customer service; or (c) if we believe or think it necessary to protect the rights, property or safety of WeSmartly, our users or the public.
We may search for illegal content within your own Content.
WeSmartly offers several optional marketing campaigns in which you can choose to participate, as detailed in our Promotions Policy. These programs can help increase your revenue potential on WeSmartly by finding the optimal price point for your courses and promoting them through additional marketing channels.
There is no up-front cost to participate in these programs, and you can modify your participation status at any time, though changes you make will not apply to currently active campaigns.
When creating a course, you will be prompted to select a base price ("Base Price") for your course. Alternatively, you may choose to offer your course for free.
WeSmartly, will list your course for the Base Price or the closest local or mobile app equivalent (as detailed below).
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.
Revenue Share and Payments
When a student purchases your course, we calculate the gross amount of the sale as the amount actually received by WeSmartly from the student ("Gross Amount"). From this, we subtract any Transaction Taxes, any mobile platform fees applied to mobile application sales, a 3% administrative and handling fee for any non-mobile-app sales, and any amounts paid to third parties in connection with the Promotional Programs to calculate the net amount of the sale ("Net Amount").
The revenue share with WeSmartly will be 75% (for the Vendor) and 25% (for WeSmartly ) of the Net Amount less any applicable deductions, such as student refunds. If we change this payment rate, we will provide you 30 days’ notice using prominent means, such as via email or by posting a notice through our Services.
WeSmartly wil give the vendor the opportunity to offer promotional offers to the students. Either the vendor opts into it or not, the same revenue share applies.
WeSmartly makes all instructor payments in EUR regardless of the currency with which the sale was made. We will assume transaction processing fees, excluding foreign currency conversion fees and wiring fees. Your revenue report will show the sales price (in local currency) and your converted revenue amount (in EUR).
WeSmartly collects the class fees through Stripe Payments and (as shown below) then forwards them to the teacher through PayPal or any payment system available to WeSmartly.
For us to pay you in a timely manner, you must have added your payment details/options once you registered as a vendor. You must also provide any identifying information or tax documentation (such as Proof of identity, VAT number, company registration number) 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 or tax documentation from you. You understand and agree that you are ultimately responsible for any taxes on your income.
If your account has been verified and students have bought your courses, payment will be made within 45 days of the end of the month in which we receive the fee for a course.
As an online course vendor, you are responsible for determining whether you are eligible to be paid by WeSmartly and we reserve the right not to pay out funds in the event of identified fraud, violations of intellectual property rights, or other violations of the law.
If we cannot settle funds into your payment account after the period of time set forth by your country, or other government authority in its unclaimed property laws, we may process the funds due to you in accordance with our legal obligations, including by submitting those funds to the appropriate government authority as required by law.
If a student purchases a product or service in a country that requires WeSmartly to remit national 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. For purchases through mobile applications, applicable Transaction Taxes are collected by the mobile platform (such as Apple's App Store or Google Play).
If a student asks for a refund after we have paid the relevant vendor payment, we reserve the right to either (1) deduct the amount of the refund from the next payment sent to the instructor or (2) where no further payments are due to the instructor or the payments are insufficient to cover the refunded amounts, require the vendor to refund any amounts refunded to students for the vendor's courses.
