You represent and warrant that:
You warrant that you will not:
2. License to eesify
Unless otherwise agreed (including within our Promotions Policy), you have the right to remove all or any portion of your Submitted Content from the Services at any time. Except as otherwise agreed, eesify's right to sublicense the rights in this section will terminate with respect to new users 60 days after the Submitted Content's removal. However, (1) rights given to students before the Submitted Content's removal will continue in accordance with the terms of those licenses (including any grants of subscription access) and (2) eesify's right to use such Submitted Content for marketing purposes shall survive termination.
We may record and use all or any part of your Submitted Content for quality control and for delivering, marketing, promoting, demonstrating, or operating the Services. You grant eesify 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 eesify’s content, and you waive any rights of privacy, publicity, or other rights of a similar nature, to the extent permissible under applicable law.
3. Trust & Safety
3.1 Trust & Safety Policies
You agree to abide by eesify’s Trust & Safety policies, Restricted Topics policy, and other content quality standards or policies prescribed by eesify from time to time. You should check these policies periodically to ensure that you comply with any updates to them. You understand that your use of the Services is subject to eesify’s approval, which we may grant or deny at our sole discretion.
We reserve the right to remove content, suspend payouts, and/or ban teachers for any reason at any time, without prior notice, including in cases where:
3.2 Relationship to Other Users
Teachers 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 eesify platform, and that you won't solicit additional personal data or store students' personal data outside the eesify platform. You agree to indemnify eesify against any claims arising from your use of students' personal data.
3.3 Anti-Piracy Efforts
We partner with anti-piracy vendors to help protect your content from unauthorised use. To enable this protection, you hereby appoint eesify and our anti-piracy vendors as your agents for the purpose of enforcing copyrights for each of your content, through notice and takedown processes (under applicable copyright laws like the Digital Millennium Copyright Act) and for other efforts to enforce those rights. You grant eesify and our anti-piracy vendors primary authority to file notices on your behalf to enforce your copyright interests.
You agree that eesify and our anti-piracy vendors will retain the above rights.
4.1 Price Setting
When creating Submitted Content available for purchase on eesify, you will be prompted to select a base price ("Base Price") for your Submitted Content from a list of available price tiers. Alternatively, you may choose to offer your Submitted Content for free. As a teacher, you will also be given the opportunity to participate in certain promotional programs under the terms of our Promotions Policy ("Promotional Programs").
If you do not opt to participate in any Promotional Programs, we will list your Submitted Content for the Base Price or the closest local or mobile app equivalent (as detailed below). If you opt to participate in a Promotional Program, we may set a different discounted price or list price for your Submitted Content as described in the Promotions Policy.
When a student purchases using a foreign currency, we will convert the relevant Base Price or Promotional Program price into the student's applicable currency using a system-wide foreign currency conversion rate set by eesify. Those conversion rates may not be identical to the applicable market rate in effect when a transaction is processed. We reserve the right to adjust the system-wide foreign currency conversion rate at any time.
You give us permission to share your Submitted Content for free with our employees, with selected partners, and in cases where we need to restore access to accounts who have previously purchased your Submitted Content. You understand that you will not receive compensation in these cases.
4.2 Transaction Taxes
If a student purchases a product or service in a country that requires eesify 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. For purchases through mobile applications, applicable Transaction Taxes are collected by the mobile platform (such as Apple's App Store or Google Play).
4.3 Promotional Programs
eesify offers several optional marketing programs (Promotional Programs) in which you can choose to participate, as detailed in our Promotions Policy. These programs can help increase your revenue potential on eesify by finding the optimal price point for your Submitted Content and offering them through subscriptions collections.
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 and certain programs may have additional requirements on termination.
5.1 Revenue Share
When a student purchases your Submitted Content, we calculate the gross amount of the sale as the amount actually received by eesify from the student ("Gross Amount"). From this, we subtract any Transaction Taxes, any mobile platform fees applied to mobile provider checkout sales, a 3% service and processing fee (except in Japan, where we subtract a 4% fee) for any non-mobile provider checkout sales, and any amounts paid to third parties in connection with the Promotional Programs to calculate the net amount of the sale ("Net Amount").
If you have not opted into any of eesify’s optional Promotional Programs, your revenue share will be of the indicated percentage of the Net Amount as shown in the table below less any applicable deductions, such as student refunds.
|Sales volume of videos per month||Revenue share (%)|
|1,001 - 10,000||47|
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.
If you opt into any of the Promotional Programs, the relevant revenue share may be different and will be as specified in the Promotions Policy.
eesify makes all teacher payments in Singapore dollars (SGD) regardless of the currency with which the sale was made. eesify is not responsible for your foreign currency conversion fees, wiring fees, or any other processing fees that you may incur. Your revenue report will show the sales price (in local currency) and your converted revenue amount (in SGD).
5.2 Receiving Payments
For us to pay you in a timely manner, you must own a PayPal in good standing and must keep us informed of the correct email associated with your account or a bank account and must keep us informed of the correct account number, name of bank, address of the bank and the bank’s swift code. 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.
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 a teacher, you are responsible for determining whether you are eligible to be paid by a Singapore 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 teacher payment, we reserve the right to either (1) deduct the amount of the refund from the next payment sent to the teacher or (2) where no further payments are due to the teacher or the payments are insufficient to cover the refunded amounts, require the teacher to refund any amounts refunded to students for the teacher’s Submitted Content.
While you are a published teacher and subject to the requirements below, you may use our trademarks where we authorise you to do so.
You must not:
7. Deleting Your Account
Teachers on how to delete your teacher account are available here. We'll use commercially reasonable efforts to make any remaining scheduled payments that are owed to you before deleting your account. You understand that if students have previously enrolled in your Submitted Content, your name and that Submitted Content may remain accessible to those students after your account is deleted. If you need help or encounter difficulty deleting your account, you can contact us via our Support Center.
8. Miscellaneous Legal Terms
8.1 Updating These Terms
From time to time, we may update these Terms to clarify our practices or to reflect new or different practices (such as when we add new features), and eesify reserves the right in its sole discretion to modify and/or make changes to these Terms at any time. If we make any material change, we will notify you using prominent means such as by email notice sent to the email address specified in your account or by posting a notice through our Services. Modifications will become effective on the day they are posted unless stated otherwise.
Your continued use of our Services after changes become effective shall mean that you accept those changes. Any revised Terms shall supersede all previous Terms.
