We reserve the right to remove courses, suspend payouts, and/or ban instructors for any reason at any time, without prior notice, including in cases where:
3.2 Relationship to Other Users
Instructors 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 TeachLeadx platform, and that you won’t solicit additional personal data or store students’ personal data outside the TeachLeadx platform. You will indemnify TeachLeadx against any claims arising from your use of students’ personal data.
4.1 Price Setting
When creating a course, you will be prompted to select a base price (“Base Price“) for your course from a list of available price tiers. Alternatively, you may choose to offer your course for free.
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 that have previously purchased your courses. You understand that you will not receive compensation in these cases.
4.2 Transaction Taxes
When a student purchases a product, TeachLeadx will remit national, state, or local sales or use taxes, value added taxes (VAT), or other similar transaction taxes (“Transaction Taxes“), under applicable law, to the Nigerian authority for those sales. We may increase the sale price at our discretion where we determine that such taxes may be due.
5.1 Revenue Share
When a student purchases your course, we calculate the gross amount of the sale as the amount actually received by TeachLeadx from the student (“Gross Amount“). From this, we subtract any Transaction Taxes, our commission percentage based on the revenue share model below.
If the sale was as a result organic search, our revenue share will be 50% of the Net Amount less any applicable deductions, and so on. However, if sales were made via Instructor’s unique link (course url), our revenue share will be 10% and 90% for the Instructor. 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.
TeachLeadx makes all instructor payments in U.S. dollars (USD) 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 USD.
5.2 Receiving Payments
For us to pay you in a timely manner, you must own a PayPal account in good standing and must keep us informed of the correct email associated with your account. We reserve the right to withhold payments or impose other penalties if we do not receive proper identifying information from you. You understand and agree that you are ultimately responsible for any taxes on your income.
Depending on the applicable revenue share model, payment will be made within 45 days of the end of the month in which (a) we receive the fee for a course or (b) the relevant course consumption occurred.
As an instructor, you are responsible for determining whether you are eligible to be paid by a Nigerian company. 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 state, 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 asks for a refund after we have paid the relevant instructor 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 instructor to refund any amounts refunded to students for the instructor’s courses.
