These Terms of Use (“Terms”) were last updated on April 27, 2020.

Twigpedia’s mission is to improve lives through learning. We enable anyone anywhere to create and share educational courses (instructors) and to enroll in these educational courses to learn (students). We consider our marketplace model the best way to offer valuable educational content to our users. We need rules to keep our platform and services safe for you, us and our student and instructor community. These Terms apply to all your activities on the Twigpedia website.

If you publish a course on the Twigpedia platform, you must also agree to the Instructor Terms. We also provide details regarding our processing of personal data of our students and instructors in our Privacy Policy

If you live in the United States or Canada, by agreeing to these Terms, you agree to resolve disputes with Twigpedia through binding arbitration (with very limited exceptions, not in court), and you waive certain rights to participate in class actions, as detailed in the Dispute Resolution section.

 

1. Accounts

You need an account for most activities on our platform, including to purchase and enroll in a course or to submit a course for publication. When setting up and maintaining your account, you must provide and continue to provide accurate and complete information, including a valid email address. You have complete responsibility for your account and everything that happens on your account, including for any harm or damage (to us or anyone else) caused by someone using your account without your permission. This means you need to be careful with your password. You may not transfer your account to someone else or use someone else’s account. If you contact us to request access to an account, we will not grant you such access unless you can provide us with the information that we need to prove you are the owner of that account. In the event of the death of a user, the account of that user will be closed.

You may not share your account login credentials with anyone else. You are responsible for what happens with your account and Twigpedia will not intervene in disputes between students or instructors who have shared account login credentials. You must notify us immediately upon learning that someone else may be using your account without your permission (or if you suspect any other breach of security) by contacting our Support Team. We may request some information from you to confirm that you are indeed the owner of your account.

Students and instructors must be at least 18 years of age to create an account on Twigpedia and use the Services. If you are younger than 18 but above the required age for consent to use online services where you live (for example, 13 in the US or 16 in Ireland), you may not set up an account, but we encourage you to invite a parent or guardian to open an account and help you enroll in courses that are appropriate for you. If you are below this age of consent to use online services, you may not create a Twigpedia account. If we discover that you have created an account that violates these rules, we will terminate your account. Under our Instructor Terms, you may be requested to verify your identity before you are authorized to submit a course for publication on Twigpedia.

You can terminate your account at any time by contacting our support team. 

 

2. Course Enrollment and Lifetime Access

Under our Instructor Terms, when instructors publish a course on Twigpedia, they grant Twigpedia a license to offer a license to the course to students. This means that we have the right to sublicense the course to the students who enroll in the course. As a student, when you enroll in a course, whether it’s a free or paid course, you are getting a license from Twigpedia to view the course via the Twigpedia platform and Services, and Twigpedia 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).

In legal, more complete terms, Twigpedia grants you (as a student) 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 Twigpedia authorized representative. This also applies to content you can access via any of our APIs.

We generally give a lifetime access license to our students 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 instructors 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 students directly, and any such direct license shall be null and void and a violation of these Terms.

 

3. Payments, Credits, and Refunds

3.1 Pricing

The prices of courses on Twigpedia are determined based on the terms of the Instructor Terms and our Promotions Policy. In some instances, the price of a course offered on the Twigpedia website may not be exactly the same as the price offered on other platform.

We regularly run promotions and sales for our courses and certain courses are only available at discounted prices for a set period of time. The price applicable to a course will be the price at the time you complete your purchase of the course (at checkout). Any price offered for a particular course may also be different when you are logged into your account from the price available to users who aren’t registered or logged in, because some of our promotions are available only to new users.

If you are logged into your account, the listed currency you see is based on your location when you created your account. If you are not logged into your account, the price currency is based on the country where you are located. We do not enable users to see pricing in other currencies.

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. Depending on your location, the price you see may include such taxes, or tax may be added at checkout.

 

3.2 Payments

You agree to pay the fees for courses that you purchase, and you authorize us to charge your debit or credit card or process other means of payment (such as Boleto, SEPA, direct debit, or mobile wallet) for those fees. Twigpedia 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. Check out our Privacy Policy for more details.

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 payment.

 

3.3 Refunds and Refund Credits

If the course you purchased is not what you were expecting, you can request, within 30 days of your purchase of the course, that Twigpedia apply a refund to your account. We reserve the right to apply your refund as a refund credit or a refund to your original payment method, at our discretion, depending on capabilities of our payment processing partners, the platform from which you purchased your course (website, mobile or TV app), and other factors. No refund is due to you if you request it after the 30-day guarantee time limit has passed. However, if a course you previously purchased is disabled for legal or policy reasons, you are entitled to a refund beyond this 30-day limit. Twigpedia also reserves the right to refund students beyond the 30-day limit in cases of suspected or confirmed account fraud.

To request a refund, kindly contact our support team. As detailed in the Instructor Terms, instructors agree that students have the right to receive these refunds.

If we decide to issue refund credits to your account, they will be automatically applied towards your next course purchase on our website, but can’t be used for purchases in our mobile or TV applications. Refund credits may expire if not used within the specified period, and have no cash value.

At our discretion, if we believe you are abusing our refund policy, such as if you’ve consumed a significant portion of a course that you want to refund or if you’ve previously refunded a course, we reserve the right to deny your refund, ban your account, and/or restrict all future use of the Services. If we ban your account or disable your access to a course due to your violation of these Terms or our Trust & Safety Guidelines, you will not be eligible to receive a refund.

 

3.4 Gift and Promotional Codes

Twigpedia or our partners may offer gift and promotional codes to students. Certain codes may be redeemed for prepaid credits applied to your Twigpedia account, which then may be used to purchase eligible courses on our platform, subject to the terms included with your codes. Other codes may be directly redeemable for specific courses. Prepaid credits can’t be used for purchases in our mobile or TV applications.

These codes and credits, as well as any promotional value linked to them, may expire if not used within the period specified in your Twigpedia account. Gift and promotional codes offered by Twigpedia may not be refunded for cash, unless otherwise specified in the terms included with your codes or as required by applicable law. Gift and promotional codes offered by a partner are subject to that partner’s refund policies. If you have multiple saved credit amounts, Twigpedia may determine which of your credits to apply to your purchase.

Twigpedia complies with copyright laws. 

Twigpedia has discretion in enforcing these Terms and our Trust & Safety Guidelines. We may terminate or suspend your permission to use our platform and Services or ban your account at any time, with or without notice, for any or no reason, including for any violation of these Terms, if you fail to pay any fees when due, upon the request of law enforcement or government agencies, for extended periods of inactivity, for unexpected technical issues or problems, or if we suspect that you engage in fraudulent or illegal activities, or for any other reason in our sole discretion.

6. Using Twigpedia at Your Own Risk

We do not exercise any editorial control over the courses that are available on the platform and, as such, do not guarantee in any manner the reliability, validity, accuracy, or truthfulness of the courses.

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

8. Miscellaneous Legal Terms

8.1 Binding Agreement

You agree that by registering, accessing, or using our Services, you are agreeing to enter into a legally binding contract with Twigpedia. If you do not agree to these Terms, do not register, access, or otherwise use any of our Services.

If you are an instructor accepting these Terms and using our Services on behalf of a company, organization, government, or other legal entity, you represent and warrant that you are authorized to do so.

Any version of these Terms in a language other than English is provided for convenience and you understand and agree that the English language will control if there is any conflict.

These Terms (including any agreements and policies linked from these Terms) constitute the entire agreement between you and us (which include, if you are an instructor, the Instructor Terms and the Promotions Policy).

If any part of these Terms is found to be invalid or unenforceable by applicable law, then that provision will be deemed superseded by a valid, enforceable provision that most closely matches the intent of the original provision and the remainder of these Terms will continue in effect.

Even if we are delayed in exercising our rights or fail to exercise a right in one case, it doesn’t mean we waive our rights under these Terms, and we may decide to enforce them in the future. If we decide to waive any of our rights in a particular instance, it doesn’t mean we waive our rights generally or in the future.

The following sections shall survive the expiration or termination of these Terms: Sections 2 (Course Enrollment and Lifetime Access), 5 (Twigpedia’s Rights to Content You Post), 6 (Using Twigpedia at Your Own Risk), 7 (Twigpedia’s Rights), 8 (Miscellaneous Legal Terms), and 9 (Dispute Resolution).

 

8.2 Disclaimers

We are not responsible for delay or failure of our performance of any of the Services caused by events beyond our reasonable control, like an act of war, hostility, or sabotage; natural disaster; electrical, internet, or telecommunication outage; or government restrictions.

 

8.3 Limitation of Liability

There are risks inherent to using our Services, for example, if you enroll in a health and wellness course like yoga, and you injure yourself.

You agree to indemnify, defend (if we so request), and hold harmless Twigpedia, our group companies, and their officers, directors, suppliers, partners, and agents from an against any third-party claims, demands, losses, damages, or expenses (including reasonable attorney fees) arising from (a) the content you post or submit, (b) your use of the Services (c) your violation of these Terms, or (d) your violation of any rights of a third party. Your indemnification obligation will survive the termination of these Terms and your use of the Services.

8.5 Legal Actions and Notices

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

 

8.7 No Assignment

You may not assign or transfer these Terms (or the rights and licenses granted under them). For example, if you registered an account as an employee of a company, your account cannot be transferred to another employee. We may assign these Terms (or the rights and licenses granted under them) to another company or person without restriction. Nothing in these Terms confers any right, benefit, or remedy on any third-party person or entity. You agree that your account is non-transferable and that all rights to your account and other rights under these Terms terminate upon your death.

 

9. Dispute Resolution

This Dispute Resolution section applies only if you live in the United States or Canada. Most disputes can be resolved, so before bringing a formal legal case, please first try contacting our Support Team.

 

9.1 Small Claims

Either of us can bring a claim in small claims court in (a) San Francisco, California, (b) the county where you live, or (c) another place we both agree on, as long as it qualifies to be brought in that court.

 

9.2 Going to Arbitration

If we can’t resolve our dispute amicably, you and Twigpedia agree to resolve any claims related to these Terms (or our other legal terms) through final and binding arbitration, regardless of the type of claim or legal theory. If one of us brings a claim in court that should be arbitrated and the other party refuses to arbitrate it, the other party can ask a court to force us both to go to arbitration (compel arbitration). Either of us can also ask a court to halt a court proceeding while an arbitration proceeding is ongoing.

 

9.3 The Arbitration Process

Any disputes that involve a claim of less than $10,000 USD must be resolved exclusively through binding non-appearance-based arbitration. A party electing arbitration must initiate proceedings by filing an arbitration demand with the American Arbitration Association (AAA). The arbitration proceedings shall be governed by the AAA Commercial Arbitration Rules, Consumer Due Process Protocol, and Supplementary Procedures for Resolution of Consumer-Related Disputes. You and we agree that the following rules will apply to the proceedings: (a) the arbitration will be conducted by telephone, online, or based solely on written submissions (at the choice of the party seeking relief); (b) the arbitration must not involve any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses (unless we and you agree otherwise); and (c) any judgment on the arbitrator’s rendered award may be entered in any court with competent jurisdiction. Disputes that involve a claim of more than $10,000 USD must be resolved per the AAA’s rules about whether the arbitration hearing has to be in-person.

 

9.4 No Class Actions

We both agree that we can each only bring claims against the other on an individual basis. This means: (a) neither of us can bring a claim as a plaintiff or class member in a class action, consolidated action, or representative action; (b) an arbitrator can’t combine multiple people’s claims into a single case (or preside over any consolidated, class, or representative action); and (c) an arbitrator’s decision or award in one person’s case can only impact that user, not other users, and can’t be used to decide other users’ disputes. If a court decides that this “No class actions” clause isn’t enforceable or valid, then this “Dispute Resolution” section will be null and void, but the rest of the Terms will still apply.

 

9.5 Changes

Notwithstanding the “Updating these Terms” section below, if Twigpedia changes this “Dispute Resolution” section after the date you last indicated acceptance to these Terms, you may reject any such change by providing Twigpedia written notice of such rejection by mail or hand delivery to Twigpedia, Inc. Attn: Legal, 600 Harrison Street, 3rd Floor, San Francisco, CA 94107, or by email from the email address associated with your Account to notices@udemy.com, within 30 days of the date such change became effective, as indicated by the “last updated on” language above. To be effective, the notice must include your full name and clearly indicate your intent to reject changes to this “Dispute Resolution” section. By rejecting changes, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any dispute between you and Twigpedia in accordance with the provisions of this “Dispute Resolution” section as of the date you last indicated acceptance to these Terms.

 

10. 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 Twigpedia 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.

The Twigpedia 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 Twigpedia account and courses. Twigpedia 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.

 

3.3 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 Twigpedia platform, and that you won’t solicit additional personal data or store students’ personal data outside the Twigpedia platform. You will indemnify Twigpedia against any claims arising from your use of students’ personal data.

 

3.4 Anti-Piracy Efforts

We partner with anti-piracy vendors to help protect your courses from unauthorized use. To enable this protection, you hereby appoint Twigpedia and our anti-piracy vendors as your agents for the purpose of enforcing copyrights for each of your courses, 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 Twigpedia and our anti-piracy vendors primary authority to file notices on your behalf to enforce your copyright interests.

You agree that Twigpedia and our anti-piracy vendors will retain the above rights unless you revoke them by sending an email to admin@twigpedia.com with the subject line: “Revoke Anti-Piracy Protection Rights” from the email address associated with your account. Any revocation of rights will be effective 48 hours after we receive it.

 

4. Pricing

 

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. As a premium instructor, 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 course for the Base Price or the closest local or mobile app equivalent (as detailed below).

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 Twigpedia and fixed periodically into a table of corresponding price tiers by currency (“Price Tier Matrix“). Since the Price Tier Matrix is fixed, those conversion rates may not be identical to the applicable market rate in effect when a transaction is processed. We reserve the right to update the Price Tier Matrix at any time.

When a student purchases through a mobile application, the mobile platform provider’s pricing matrix will control, and we will choose the price tier closest to the applicable Base Price or Promotional Program price. Because mobile platforms impose their own currency conversion rates, conversions for mobile app prices may not match the conversions in the Price Tier Matrix.

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.

 

4.2 Transaction Taxes

If a student purchases a product or service in a country that requires Twigpedia 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

Twigpedia 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 Twigpedia 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.

 

5. Payments

 

5.1 Revenue Share

When a student purchases your course, we calculate the gross amount of the sale as the amount actually received by Twigpedia 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 (except in Japan, where we subtract a 4% 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“).

If you have not opted into any of Twigpedia’s optional Promotional Programs, your revenue share will be 50% 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.

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.

Twigpedia 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 local currency) and your converted revenue amount (in USD).

 

5.2 Receiving Payments

For us to pay you in a timely manner, you must own a PayPal or Payoneer account in good standing and must keep us informed of the correct email associated with your account. You must also provide any identifying information or tax documentation (such as a W-9 or W-8) 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.

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 U.S. 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.

 

5.3 Refunds

You acknowledge and agree that students have the right to receive a refund, as detailed in the Terms of Use. Instructors will not receive any revenue from transactions for which a refund has been granted under the Terms of Use.

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.

 

6. Trademarks

While you are a published instructor and subject to the requirements below, you may use our trademarks where we authorize you to do so.

You must:

  • only use the images of our trademarks that we make available to you, as detailed in any guidelines we may publish;
  • only use our trademarks in connection with the promotion and sale of your Twigpedia courses or your participation on Twigpedia; and
  • immediately comply if we request that you discontinue use.

You must not:

  • use our trademarks in a misleading or disparaging way;
  • use our trademarks in a way that implies that we endorse, sponsor, or approve of your courses or services; or
  • use our trademarks in a way that violates applicable law or in connection with an obscene, indecent, or unlawful topic or material.

 

7. Sanctions and Export Laws

You warrant that you aren’t restricted from using the Services under U.S. sanctions or export laws (as an individual or as an officer, director, or controlling shareholder of any entity on whose behalf you use the Services). If you become subject to such a restriction while you are subject to these Instructor Terms, you will notify Twigpedia within 24 hours, and we will have the right to terminate any further obligations to you, effective immediately and with no further liability to you (but without prejudice to your outstanding obligations to Twigpedia). You will not use the Services to conduct or facilitate any transaction with any other individual or entity subject to such a restriction. You may not remove, export, or allow the export or re-export of the Services (or any product thereof, including technical data) outside the U.S. in violation of any restrictions, laws, or regulations of the U.S. or any other applicable country.

 

8. Deleting Your Account

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 courses, your name and that Submitted Content will remain accessible to those students after your account is deleted. If you need help or encounter difficulty deleting your account, you can contact us.

 

9. Miscellaneous Legal Terms

 

9.1 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 Twigpedia 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.

 

9.2 Translations

Any version of these Terms in a language other than English is provided for convenience and you understand and agree that the English language will control if there is any conflict.

 

9.3 Relationship Between Us

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

The following sections shall survive the expiration or termination of these Terms: Sections 2 (License to Twigpedia), 3.3 (Relationship to Other Users), 5.2 (Receiving Payments), 5.3 (Refunds), 8 (Deleting Your Account), and 9 (Miscellaneous Legal Terms).

 

10. How to Contact Us

The best way to get in touch with us is to contact our Support Team. We’d love to hear your questions, concerns, and feedback about our Services.

Intellectual Property Policy

This Intellectual Property Policy was last updated on July 02, 2020.

Twigpedia is a technology platform that enables anyone anywhere to create and share educational courses. We host more than 100,000 courses on our online learning marketplace. Our marketplace model means we do not review or edit the courses for legal issues, and we are not in a position to determine the legality of course content. However, it is important to us that instructors posting courses on Twigpedia respect the intellectual property of others. When instructors post courses on our marketplace, they make the promise that they have the necessary authorization or rights to use all the content contained in their courses.

Infringing activity is not tolerated on or through our platform.

This policy addresses what we do in the event of copyright infringement reports from content owners and trademark infringement claims from trademark owners with respect to the courses on the Twigpedia platform. The policy also addresses what we do when Twigpedia instructors’ courses are copied on third-party platforms without their consent.

 

Third-Party Copyright Infringement Reports

Twigpedia’s policy is to remove courses from our service when they are reported as infringing in a copyright infringement notice received from the owner of the original content. It is also our policy to remove all courses from any instructor who is determined to be a repeat infringer (for whom Twigpedia has received more than two valid takedown notices). We reserve the right to terminate an instructor’s account at any time, including when they post content in violation of the copyrights of others.

 

How to File a Report

If you would like to report a course on the Twigpedia marketplace and if you are the owner or the designated agent of the owner of the rights to the content that you believe the course is infringing, the most efficient way is to use this form (form in English only).

Before you submit a copyright infringement report, please remember these important things:

    1. We cannot process a copyright claim that is not submitted by the owner of the copyright or its designated agent. This is because we have no way of knowing whether the instructor who published the course you are reporting has received proper permission from the owner to use the content. We will ask you to provide an electronic signature to confirm that you are the copyright owner or have authority to represent the copyright owner (including if the copyright owner is an organization).
    2. Your copyright claim has to be sufficiently substantiated for us be able to address it. This means:
      • You provide sufficient information for us to contact you, including your full legal name, an email address, physical address, and (optional) telephone number.
      • If you are filing a report on behalf of an organization, you include the name of the organization and your relationship to the organization.
      • You precisely identify the original copyrighted material or, if multiple copyrighted works are covered in your notification, you provide a sufficiently representative list of such original material (such as a URL where the material is located);
      • You provide sufficient information for us to locate the reportedly infringing course(s) on the Twigpedia site (the URL on our website and the exact name of the course and instructor;
      • You add a statement saying: “I declare, under penalty of perjury, that the information in this complaint is accurate and that I am the copyright owner or am authorized to act on the copyright owner’s behalf and I have a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law”.
    3. Knowingly submitting a false or misleading claim of infringement is illegal and you could be held liable and have to pay damages as a result. Twigpedia reserves the right to seek damages from anyone who submits a notification of claimed infringement in violation of the law.
    4. There are types of content that are not protected by copyright. Copyright law doesn’t cover short phrases (like business names, book titles, and slogans), intangible concepts (like processes, ideas, and recipes), or facts. Before you submit a copyright claim, make sure that the content copied in the course is indeed protected by copyright. If you need to report a trademark violation, please contact us
    5. Consider whether the use of your material in the course is “fair use”. Copyright law includes a “fair use” exception for certain uses of copyrighted content that are considered to be in the public interest. Fair use covers things like criticism, commentary, news reporting, and research. In considering whether a course’s use of your material qualifies as fair use, you should look at:
      • The purpose of the use (whether the course is paid or unpaid, whether the course critiques/parodies/transforms your material)
      • The type of copyrighted work being used (whether your work is factual or creative)
      • The portion being used (whether the course uses small, necessary excerpts of your material or substantial portions of it)
      • The effect on the market for your material (whether potential buyers would purchase the course instead of your material)

Before you submit a copyright claim, make sure that use of the content copied in the course does not qualify as fair use.

 

Counter-Notification

If we receive a valid copyright violation report, we will send a copy of that report to the instructor who posted the reported course along with a notification that 1) the course was reported for copyright infringement and 2) we are removing the course from the Twigpedia service. We will also attach a form that the instructor can fill in and send back to us to submit a counter-notification. If your course has been reported for copyright infringement and removed from the Twigpedia service, and if you believe we made a mistake or that you have permission from the owner of the reported content to use such content in your course, then you may send us a counter-notification.

The best way to provide us with a counter-notification is to fill in the form we provided you and send it back to the Twigpedia designated agent or the copyright team member who notified you. To be effective, a counter notification must be in writing and include the following information:

  • Your physical or electronic signature;
  • Your name, address, and email address or telephone number,
  • Identification of the course that was removed and the location (URL) at which it appeared before it was removed (you can access this information from the copyright infringement report filed against your course, we always attach a copy when we notify you);
  • A statement under penalty of perjury that you have a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled; and
  • A statement that you consent to (i) Twigpedia sharing your name and contact information with the claimant; (ii) receiving service of process for any legal action by the claimant or an agent of the claimant and (ii) accepting the jurisdiction of the federal district court for the judicial district in which you reside (if in the U.S.), or if you reside outside of the U.S., the jurisdiction of the United States District Court for the Northern District of California (headquarters of Twigpedia).

Knowingly submitting a false or misleading counter-notification to a claim of infringement is illegal and you could be held liable and have to pay damages as a result. Twigpedia reserves the right to seek damages from any party that submits a counter-notification of claimed infringement or counter notification in violation of the law.

 

Reports from Instructors of Infringing Content on Other Platforms

We understand that when you post and make available your courses on the Twigpedia marketplace, you want to make sure that you will not find your courses offered on another platform without your permission. To help combat copyright infringement and piracy affecting courses of our instructors, we partnered with Link-Busters, an anti-piracy vendor, to seek out and find instances of infringement and to have any infringing content removed from third-party platforms.

In the event you find your course available on another platform without your permission, please contact us. Link-Busters will file copyright infringement reports and exercise legal actions to have the infringing content removed as soon as possible. Please keep in mind that since Twigpedia and Link-Busters don’t control the content on other sites, we may not always be successful, especially if your content is on a site outside of the US or EU. Certain countries take different approaches to copyright law; as such, we cannot guarantee the infringing party or hosting site will comply with our notices and remove the infringing content from their platform.

 

Third-Party Trademark Infringement Reports

Twigpedia’s policy is to remove courses from our service when they are reported as infringing a third-party trademark. We also reserve the right to terminate an instructor’s account at any time, including when they post content in violation of the trademark rights of others.

 

How to Submit a Trademark Infringement Report

The fastest and easiest way to submit a report of trademark infringement to us is to send a notice to the Designated Agent containing the information identified below. Please note that a copy of your notice will be sent to the party who posted the content you are reporting. Before you submit a trademark infringement report, please remember these important things:

  1. Your trademark claim has to be sufficiently substantiated for us be able to address it. This means your communication must include substantially the following:
    • Your complete contact information (full name, mailing address, and email or phone number).
    • The specific word, symbol, etc. for which you claim trademark rights.
    • The basis for your claim of trademark rights (such as a national or community registration), including registration number, if applicable.
    • The country or jurisdiction in which you claim trademark rights.
    • The category of goods and/or services for which you assert rights.
    • Sufficient information for us to locate the material on Twigpedia that you believe violates your trademark rights (web addresses/URLs of the allegedly infringing content).
    • A description of how you believe this content infringes your trademark.
    • If you are not the rights holder, an explanation of your relationship to the rights holder.
    • The following statement: “I have a good faith belief that use of the trademark as described above in the manner complained of is not authorized by the trademark owner, its agent, or the law.”
    • The following statement: “The information in this notice is accurate, and I declare, under penalty of perjury, that I am the owner or authorized to act on behalf of the owner of a trademark that is allegedly infringed.”
    • Your electronic signature (“/s/” followed by your full name, e.g., “/s/ Jane Doe”) or physical signature.
  2. Submitting a false or misleading claim of infringement could result in liability for you. Twigpedia reserves the right to seek damages from any party that submits a false or misleading notification of claimed trademark infringement.
  3. Consider whether the use of your trademark in the course is “nominative fair use”. Trademark law protects the use of a name or brand for selling products and services, with the goal of preventing consumer confusion. Most countries’ laws include an exception for “fair use”, which allows others to use a trademark for factually referencing the trademarked product or service, or commenting on or criticizing the mark. Consider the likelihood that others would be confused into thinking that your company or brand had created or is sponsoring the course. Before you submit a trademark claim, make sure that use of your trademark in the course does not qualify as fair use.

 

Designated Agent Contact Information

Twigpedia’s Designated Agent for notices of reported infringement can be contacted by email to admin@twigpedia.com 

This Promotions Policy was last updated on 04/23/2020.

This Promotions Policy (“Policy”) includes information about methods that Twigpedia instructors can use to promote their courses, including instructor coupons, course referral links and Twigpedia’s optional marketing programs. This Policy is incorporated by reference into our Terms of Use and Instructor Terms. Any capitalized terms that aren’t defined in this Policy are defined as specified in the Terms of Use or Instructor Terms.

 

1. Instructor Coupons & Course Referral Links

As an instructor, you may be able to increase your sales by promoting your course through a course referral link or coupon code. You may generate a coupon code for a discount or at Twigpedia’s current price, as permitted within the Services. Note that the actual discount may be slightly higher due to rounding and currency conversion. When a student applies your discount coupon to a foreign currency transaction, we will apply a proportional discount in the student’s applicable currency.

Where a student applies your coupon code or course referral link at checkout, your revenue share will be 90% of the Net Amount less any applicable deductions, such as student refunds.

Alternatively, you may be able to generate 100%-off coupons to offer your paid course for free. These coupons may be subject to limits, and you may not sell free coupons on third-party websites or otherwise offer them in exchange for compensation.

 

2. Promotional Programs

2.1 How the Promotional Programs Work

Twigpedia offers premium instructors several optional marketing programs (“Promotional Programs”), which you can opt into through the Promotional Agreements page of your instructor settings. The specific programs offered may change from time to time. In connection with the Promotional Programs, your courses may also be priced higher at Twigpedia’s discretion.

Not all deals or programs will be available in all geographic territories or for all Twigpedia courses. Twigpedia has sole discretion to determine which courses to offer as part of the Promotional Programs and to set or update sale prices. Twigpedia may remove any of your courses from the Promotional Programs at any time and in its sole discretion, with or without notice to you.

The discount amounts referenced below are approximate, as the actual discount may be slightly higher due to rounding and currency conversion. Twigpedia does not guarantee any minimum level of success in connection with the Promotional Programs.

2.2 Twigpedia Deals Program

The Twigpedia Deals Program helps increase your revenue potential by enabling Twigpedia to offer your course at a compelling discount and list price as part of targeted promotions. The Deals Program allows Twigpedia to offer your course to students at a discounted price or list price no lower than $10 USD (or local equivalent), except in Australia, Brazil, India, Mexico, South Africa, and Turkey and sales to Twigpedia’s resellers or distributors, where the price may be lower. 

For instructors who opted into Twigpedia’s “Percentage Promotions” variant of the Deals Program before 04/23/2020, Twigpedia may offer your course to students for a discount of up to 75% off the Base Price, except for sales to Twigpedia’s resellers or distributors which may result in a lower price. Because the Percentage Promotions variant has been deprecated, it is no longer available to instructors who did not opt in before such date and Twigpedia may discontinue the program at its discretion, with notice to affected instructors. 

Where a sale to a Twigpedia reseller or distributor results in a sale price for your course that is lower than permitted by this Policy, Twigpedia will calculate your revenue share based on a Gross Amount permitted by this Policy.

Deals Program deals may be promoted through the Services, communications to users, or third-party platforms, and the duration of the deals may vary.

By participating in the Deals Program, you agree that your revenue share will be 50% of the Net Amount of the sale less any applicable deductions, such as student refunds.

 

2.3 Marketing Boost Program

Twigpedia has a network of tens of thousands of affiliate sites and established relationships with third-party deal sites. We also have a team dedicated to placing paid digital advertisements. Through the Marketing Boost Program, Twigpedia leverages these partner sites and advertising platforms to promote your courses to new students at no up-front cost to you.

By participating in the Marketing Boost Program, you authorize Twigpedia to employ third parties, including resellers, distributors, affiliate sites, deal sites, and paid advertising on third-party platforms (together, “Advertising”) to promote your course. In calculating your revenue, Twigpedia may deduct fees associated with this Advertising from the Gross Amount before calculating the Net Amount of the sale.

By participating in the Marketing Boost Program, you agree that your revenue share will be 25% of the Net Amount of the sale less any applicable deductions, such as student refunds.

2.4 Twigpedia for Business Program

The Twigpedia for Business (UFB) collection (“Collection”) is a subscription-based course collection available to business customers, including private, public, non-profit, and government organizations (“UFB Customers”), featuring a select group of Twigpedia’s top courses for professional and personal development skills.

By opting into the Twigpedia for Business Program, you agree to make all of your courses eligible for inclusion in the Collection. We may elect whether to select your courses for inclusion in the Collection, and may change the selection from time to time at our sole discretion. Because the Collection is subscription-based, we may also select sale prices and offer free trials at our discretion. While your course is included in the Collection, you may not unpublish that course or make it private.

Revenue Share

By participating in the Twigpedia for Business Program, you agree that your revenue share will be calculated as follows:

  1. Each month, Twigpedia will calculate the total monthly subscription fees paid to Twigpedia on behalf of all current UFB Customers minus any applicable Transaction Taxes, foreign exchange fees, and third-party payment processing fees.
  2. Twenty-five percent (25%) of this amount will be allocated to instructors participating in the Twigpedia for Business Program (“Instructor Revenue Pool”) as further described below.
  3. Each month, Twigpedia will calculate the total minutes of course content in the Collection consumed by all current UFB Customers (“Total Minutes Consumed”). For clarity, the Total Minutes Consumed does not include any consumption by access through a free trial.
  4. Each month, Twigpedia will also calculate how many of the Total Minutes Consumed are attributable to each of your Courses that were included in the Collection that month (“Your Course Minutes”).
  5. To calculate your revenue share each month, Twigpedia will divide the Instructor Revenue Pool by the Total Minutes Consumed, then multiply that per-minute amount by Your Course Minutes.

Exclusivity

Once your course is included in the Collection, you agree that you will not begin to offer any pre-recorded courses that directly compete with or injure the sales of that course on any site or platform other than your own. For clarity, this doesn’t include literary works or in-person instructional trainings. If you choose to terminate your participation in the Twigpedia for Business Program, you agree that this exclusivity provision will remain in place until we remove your course from the Collection.

Termination

You can choose to terminate your participation in the Twigpedia for Business Program at any time. Twigpedia will remove your courses from the Collection within 12 months of termination and will continue to pay you revenue share based on the then-current rates until your courses are removed from the Collection. Once your courses are removed from the Collection, UFB Customers will no longer be able to enroll in your courses and you will no longer earn Twigpedia for Business Program revenue share, but any student of a UFB Customer who previously enrolled in your courses will continue to be able to access those courses for as long as the UFB Customer remains subscribed to Twigpedia for Business.

2.5 Opting Out

Except as otherwise stated above, you can opt out of the Promotional Programs at any time. However, your course will remain subject to any applicable sales, campaigns, or promotions that are already active at the time you opt out, until those sales, campaigns, or promotions are completed.

3. Modifications

We may update this Policy from time to time to clarify our practices or to reflect new or different practices. 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.
