Last updated: 6/29/2023 

Welcome to Coaching Share! Coaching share LLC d/b/a Coaching Share (referred to in this policy as “Coaching Share”, “CS”, “us”, “we”, or “our”) has adopted the following Terms of Service which govern your relationship with CS and provide important information about your legal rights (“Terms”).

These Terms explain the rules you need to follow when you visit our marketplace located at CoachingShare.com and related subdomains (together, the “CS Marketplace”), any affiliated web pages we may host (which together with the CS Marketplace, we refer to in these Terms as the “Sites”), our mobile applications (“Apps”), and any other services we might offer (together the Sites, Apps, and related services are our “Services”). 

The CS Marketplace offers an open platform for educators and creators to discover, buy, sell, and share their original content for coaching and learning, playbook assistance, and supplies for creating such works (“Resources”). Resources may include electronically delivered files, digital products, streaming video, physical or used goods, and other product types. CS may modify, add, discontinue support for, or limit the availability of any product type. A Resource, together with the Resource title, description, and other listing information make up a “Resource Listing.” CS at no time owns or sells Resources for or on behalf of Sellers.

Users of the CS Marketplace include members (“Members”) who have registered for a CS account (“Account”) and visitors who browse the marketplace without registering for an Account (“Visitors”). (Visitors and Members together are our “Users”.)

By using our Services as a Visitor, Member, or in any other manner, you agree to follow these Terms, including the terms of our Privacy Policy, Copyright & Trademark Policy, and seller fees.

1. Membership

When you create an Account, the information you provide needs to be true and accurate. Don’t provide fake or false information, don’t provide information that violates someone else’s rights, and don’t impersonate someone else.

If you’re a school, organization, government, business, or other entity, the person whose email address is associated with the Account must have authority to bind the entity to this Agreement. 

If your Account has been closed by CS, you are no longer eligible to be a Member of our community.  

B. USERNAME & PASSWORD

You’ll be asked to pick a username for your Account. Your username has to be unique and can’t be inappropriate, offensive, or something that violates the rights of someone else. 

You’ll also be asked to pick a password to protect your Account. Together this information is used to access your Account. It’s your responsibility to keep your login information confidential and you’re responsible for any and all activity that happens under your Account whether or not you authorized it. If you believe that your Account has been accessed by an unauthorized person, please contact our Customer Experience team as quickly as possible at mike@coachingshare.com so we can help. 

C. MEMBERSHIP TYPES

Buyers. You can join CS as a Buyer to use our Services for purchasing and downloading Resources (“Buyer”, “Buyer Membership”). A Buyer Account is owned by the individual whose name and email address are listed on the Account profile. As a Buyer, you’ll be able to make purchases, download free and purchased Resources, post Feedback, questions, comments, requests, or other public messages (“Communications”), submit requests for custom products, connect with other Members, your School, or an Organization, and enjoy other features and services we may offer.

Sellers. You can enjoy additional capabilities that allow you to offer and sell Resources through our Services as a Seller (“Seller”, “Seller Membership”). Sellers include individuals offering their own authored works (“Teacher-Authors”) and organizations or entities offering materials produced by one or more employees or commissioned authors (“Publishers”). CS reserves the right to modify your Seller Membership type at any time at our discretion. (See subsection D below for more information about Seller Memberships.)

Seller Memberships have all the same features of Buyer Memberships plus the ability to upload and sell Resources, access sales data, purchase promotional space, access marketing features and tools, and access additional information and communication features. The tools and features available to a Seller depend on the Seller’s chosen Membership level. 

D. MEMBERSHIPS & FEES

Purchases, taxes, and fees. You are responsible for paying any amounts due, including any applicable taxes, when you make purchases on CS. When you purchase on CS, you will be charged (in U.S. Dollars) the list price for each item as well as applicable state and local sales taxes, and any fees associated with your order. By placing an order, you represent and warrant that the billing information you’ve provided is accurate. CS also enables Sellers to collect sales tax on applicable orders. CS is not responsible for the information provided by  Sellers and does not guarantee the accuracy of sales tax calculations. In addition, as set forth in section 5 below, for states with applicable marketplace collection laws, and for certain other states in which CS has received permission (including by having entered into a collection agreement), CS will calculate, collect, and remit applicable sales tax. Where sales tax applies to your order, the amount of tax due will be estimated at checkout and may differ from the final sales tax amount that will be charged when your order is processed. Where sales tax is not collected, you are solely responsible for the payment of any use tax that may apply to your purchase and you may be required to file a use tax return to pay such taxes.

Buyers. Joining as a Buyer is free. Buyers may, at any time, and after paying any applicable fees, upgrade to a Seller Membership. 

Sellers. CS offers multiple Seller Membership options. Each Seller Membership has different features and privileges, Payout Rates, and Fees. 

“Fees” include (1) membership subscription fees charged each membership term (“Membership Fees”), and (2) fees charged per Resource sold (“Transaction Fees”). 

“Marketplace Payout Rate” is defined as the percentage of the sale price you earn for each Resource you sell through the CS Marketplace. Marketplace Payout Rates may vary depending on the type of Resource and your Membership level. The applicable Marketplace Payout Rate is applied only to the sale price of each Resource at the time sold, before any Transaction Fees or Shipping Charges are applied. The remaining amount of the sale price is retained by CS as a service fee. See Section 5 for additional information on Marketplace Earnings and Payouts. 

The Fees and Marketplace Payout Rates for each Seller Membership are defined in our Seller Fees and Payout Rates Policy which is incorporated as part of these Terms. For any membership for which a Membership Fee applies, your membership will automatically renew each term unless you cancel the renewal. Click here or contact us to learn how to cancel your renewal. 

We may, in our discretion, make changes to the Memberships we offer, the privileges and features available to each Membership, as well as the Fees and Marketplace Payout Rates associated with each Membership at any time. 

In advance of any Fee increase or change in Marketplace Payout Rates, we’ll notify all affected Users at the email address associated with the account in accordance with these Terms. Changes in Marketplace Payout Rates will be applied to all affected Sellers as of the stated effective date of the change, irrespective of any individual Seller’s Membership Fee renewal date. Any increase in Membership Fees will be applied only to renewals taking place after the change goes into effect. 

Sellers are responsible for any other fees or costs they may incur and for paying any applicable income, sales, or other taxes they may be subject to as a result of using our Services.

E. RELATIONSHIP

These Terms are the entire agreement between you and CS, and they govern your relationship with CS. Becoming a Member of our Services does not create an agency, employment, or partnership relationship between you and CS. CS is not the employer of, and does not act as an agent for, any Member.  

F. ACCOUNT CLOSURE

Closure by CS.  We may, in our discretion, close or suspend the Account of any Member at any time for any reason, with or without notice. 

Closure by You.  You have the right to close your CS account at any time, without notice to us. You can close your Account from your My Account Basic page or by contacting us for assistance. 

Effect of Account Closure.  After your account is closed, you’ll no longer have access to your Account information, past purchases, uploaded Resources, and many of the features of our Services that require an Account. If you close your Account on your own, you can reopen your Account anytime by logging in again. If you’d like for CS to close your Account so that it cannot be reopened upon login, please write to us. 

Communications you’ve posted on the CS site will not be removed if your Account is closed. You may be able to remove or edit some Communications at your discretion before you close your account. For more information about your Account information and our data retention practices, take a look at our Privacy Policy here.

If you’re a Seller, any Resources you’ve posted will no longer be searchable and your Resource pages will not be available to Users; however your paid Resources remain accessible to the Accounts of Members who have previously purchased them. 

Discontinue Services.  We may change, suspend, or discontinue offering our Services at any time. Any suspension or discontinuation in our Services may mean that your Account, including any Resources or other materials you may have purchased from our Services, and any Resources or Communications (collectively “Content “) you may have uploaded to our Services, may not be available to you or to other Users. We are not liable to you for any impact a change, suspension, or discontinuation of our Services may have, including the loss of access to any Resources that you’ve purchased, or loss of income from your temporary or permanent inability to sell Resources through our Services.

2. CS Community

A. COMMUNITY GUIDELINES

As a User of our Services, you are required to follow our Community Guidelines which are incorporated as part of these Terms. We may modify or add to these rules at our discretion. If you violate any of these rules, we may take action against your Account, such as removing Content you’ve posted, removing Resources from your Account, suspending or terminating your Account, removing Resources from your Buyer, issuing a refund to your Buyer(s), or any additional action that we deem necessary.

B. COMMENTS, RATINGS & REVIEWS

You may have the option to provide a review of a Resource you’ve purchased or downloaded for free by providing a rating and a comment (“Feedback”). Any Feedback you choose to leave should reflect your honest experience using the Resource for its intended purpose and must comply with our Comments and Ratings Guidelines. We may, at any time, set additional requirements or limitations for leaving Feedback. Sellers may not leave feedback on their own Resources or otherwise attempt to undermine the integrity of our Feedback system. We may remove Feedback for any reason, at any time, without notice and we may ban a Member from leaving future Feedback. 

C. REWARDS PROGRAMS

We may, at our sole discretion, offer Members opportunities to earn rewards (“Rewards”) through various programs or incentives  (“Rewards Programs”). You can view the rules of our current Feedback Rewards program here, and current Referral Program here

We are under no obligation to offer a Rewards Program of any kind or to issue Rewards in any specific form. We may change the Reward amount or form, Rewards Program requirements, and the conditions for receiving future Rewards at any time. We reserve the right, at our discretion, to revoke or withhold Rewards or ban a Member from receiving Rewards or participating in a Rewards Program. We reserve the right to modify, suspend, or discontinue any such Rewards Program at any time. 

D. MONITORING CONTENT

CS has the right, but not the obligation, to monitor any activity and Content associated with our Services. We may investigate any complaints or reported violations of our policies and take any action that we deem appropriate. Such action may include, but is not limited to, issuing warnings, suspension or termination of your Membership, denying access, and/or removal of any Content on the site, including Resource Listings.

3. Resource Licensing Policy

A. IN GENERAL

License. CS Sellers own and maintain the intellectual property rights in their Resources and grant Members licenses to use such Resources for limited use as described in this section. When you purchase a Resource, you’re purchasing a license to use the Resource in accordance with the terms of this Resource Licensing Policy. All downloadable and digitally consumed Resources can only be used in accordance with a license, which can either be an “Individual License” or a “Classroom License.” 

Your use of any Resource, regardless of license type and whether the license is purchased by you, transferred to you by your Organization, or purchased for you as a gift or on your behalf by your school or other entity, is subject to this Resource Licensing Policy and other terms set forth in these Terms. You agree to comply with the terms of this Resource Licensing Policy as well as any additional terms the Seller provides in the Resource Listing, to the extent that such terms do not conflict with these Terms. In the event of any conflict between this Resource Licensing Policy and a Seller’s terms, this Resource Licensing Policy will govern, except that Sellers may grant certain additional rights to their Resources. 

B. INDIVIDUAL LICENSE

An Individual License is a license that may only be assigned to a single specific individual user (“Assignee”) (e.g. one specific teacher) for that Assignee’s lifetime use. Individual Licenses are non-transferable and may not be used by or reallocated to a different Assignee (for example, a teacher who purchases an Individual License can use such Resource, in accordance with this section, for her or his lifetime but cannot transfer use of such Resource to another teacher after her or his retirement).  

Except as otherwise stated in these Terms (such as in the “Limitations on Access” section set forth below), with an Individual License, the Seller grants to the purchasing Member, for use by one Assignee, a non-exclusive, perpetual, irrevocable, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, worldwide, limited license to use the Resource for the purposes and under the conditions described below. The Seller may grant additional rights at their discretion.

If you purchase an Individual License, the Seller permits you to:

  • Assign use of the Resource to one Assignee. Once an Assignee has been designated, the license cannot be used by any other individual, but you can purchase additional licenses as needed. For clarity, you can purchase an Individual License for yourself, as a gift for another person, or as an Organization purchasing on behalf of a teacher. In such cases, a single “transfer” of the Resource to the intended recipient Assignee is permitted, but you may not reallocate an Individual License from one Assignee to another or share the Resource with additional users unless you purchase additional licenses for each additional Assignee.


As an Assignee of an Individual License, the Seller permits you to:

  • Use the Resource for personal, educational, and instructional use only (“Personal Use”). This means you can use Resources for your own personal purposes, for your individual study, and to teach your students.
  • Print and make copies of downloadable Resources as necessary for Personal Use. Copies may be made and provided to your students, classroom aides, and substitute teachers as necessary. Copies may also be made for students’ parents, classroom observers, supervisors, or school administrators for review purposes only. Hard goods and video resources may not be copied, shared, or otherwise reproduced.
  • Deliver Resources electronically as needed by using features available through the Services or by other secure means that enable access to Resources by only your students (and as needed, their parent/caregiver) (“Permitted Recipients”). You may not upload Resources to websites, applications, shared drives or other sites or services in a way that enables access by anyone other than Permitted Recipients.


Unless otherwise expressly permitted by the Seller:

  • You may not use the Resource, in part or in whole, for commercial purposes. This means you can’t sell it, use it for advertising or marketing purposes, or use it in any other way in connection with a business or profit making activity. 
  • Except as permitted above to deliver Resources electronically to Permitted Recipients, you may not post or otherwise make the Resource available on any website, application, shared drive or other sites or services.
  • You may not share, send, sell, sublicense, or transfer the Resource to someone else for their own Personal Use unless you purchase an additional license for each additional educator you will share it with. Each Individual License is for use by one specific educator only. 

 

C. CLASSROOM LICENSE

Subject to these Terms and other policies made available by CS, Organizations using CS for Schools may have the option to purchase an upgraded transferable “Classroom License” or upgrade an existing Individual License to a Classroom License. Classroom Licenses allow for reallocation from the original Assignee to a new user under the conditions provided in this section. Classroom Licenses are only available to CS for Schools purchasers.

Although Classroom Licenses can be transferred from one Assignee to another in accordance with the terms of this Resource Licensing Policy, a Classroom License may be used by only one user at a time. In order to transfer a Classroom License from one Assignee to another, an Organization must first reclaim the Classroom License from the current Assignee. An Organization may reclaim a Classroom License in order to transfer it to a new user no more than once per calendar year. CS may, in its discretion, modify the frequency with which a Classroom License may be transferred, or allow additional transfers on a case-by-case basis.

Except as otherwise stated in these Terms (including without limitation the “Limitations on Access” section set forth below), under a Classroom License, the Seller grants to the purchasing Member, for use by one Assignee at a time, a non-exclusive, perpetual, irrevocable, non-sublicensable, worldwide, limited license to use the Resource for the purposes and under the conditions described below. The Seller may grant additional rights at their discretion.

If you purchase a Classroom License, the Seller permits you to:

  • Transfer the Resource to one Assignee (e.g. a teacher within your Organization) at a time. Unlike an Individual License, you can reclaim the license from the Assignee and re-assign it to a different user. You may not share a Resource with multiple users concurrently unless you purchase additional licenses. 

As an Assignee of a Classroom License, the Seller permits you to:

  • Use the Resource for Personal Use only. 
  • Print and make copies of downloadable Resources as necessary for Personal Use. Copies may be made and provided to students, classroom aides, and substitute teachers as necessary. Copies may also be made for students’ parents, classroom observers, supervisors, or school administrators for review purposes only. Hard goods and video resources may not be copied, shared, or reproduced.
  • Deliver Resources electronically as needed by using features available through the Services or by other secure means that enable access to Resources by only your students (and as needed, their parent/caregiver) (“Permitted Recipients”). You may not upload Resources to websites, applications, shared drives or other sites or services in a way that enables access by anyone other than Permitted Recipients.


Unless otherwise expressly permitted by the Seller:

  • You may not use any Resource, in part or in whole, for commercial purposes. This means you can’t sell it, use it for advertising or marketing purposes, or use it in any other way in connection with a business or profit making activity. 
  • Except as permitted above to deliver Resources electronically to Permitted Recipients, you may not post or otherwise make any Resource available on any website, application, shared drive or other sites or services.
  • An Assignee may not continue to use a License that has been reclaimed by the Assignee’s Organization after the license is reclaimed.

 

D. LIMITATION ON ACCESS

Downloadable Resources.  CS cannot guarantee continuous access to any Resource through our Service. For example, if at any time, CS stops hosting a Resource for any reason or you or CS terminates, suspends, downgrades, or otherwise limits your Account or access to CS’s Services, your ability to access the Resource through our Services may be terminated. It’s your responsibility to maintain and store a copy of downloadable Resources on your device to ensure future access. Some resources uploaded to our Service by Sellers may create accessibility issues when accessed with screen readers or other assistive technologies.

Digital and Video Resources.  If you purchase access to a Resource in the format of streaming video or other non-downloadable formats, your license will expire if you or CS closes your account, or if CS stops hosting the Resource for any reason. Some resources uploaded to our Service by Sellers may create accessibility issues when accessed with screen readers or other assistive technologies.

Security of the Resources. Prior to downloading any Resource, you are responsible for making sure it is properly scanned to ensure it does not contain or transmit viruses, malware, or other harmful software programs.

4. Intellectual Property and Security 

A. THE SERVICES AND THE SITE CONTENT 

Except for Content uploaded or posted by Members, all other aspects of the Site and the Apps you find on our Services is owned or controlled by us. This includes, but is not limited to, all text, graphics, photographs, logos, and other imagery, videos, user interfaces, trademarks, computer code, and other content of our Site or Apps (collectively, “Site Assets”). This also includes the design, structure, coordination, arrangement, expression, and the “look and feel” of Site Assets. Site Assets are protected by copyright, trademarks, trade dress, trade secret, and other intellectual property rights.

You may not use, reproduce, copy, modify, republish, perform, display, disassemble, reverse engineer, translate, or distribute Site Assets in any way to any person, computer, server, website, or other entity for any commercial purpose without our explicit permission. By commercial purpose we mean that you can’t sell, license, rent, use in your own business or website, incorporate into marketing materials or presentations, or make other commercial use of our Site Assets.

B. YOUR CONTENT 

Rights you grant to CS.  Some parts of our Services allow you to upload or post Content. You retain any intellectual property rights that you hold in that Content. CS does not take or claim any ownership (copyright, trademark, or otherwise) over your Content.

When you post or upload Content to our Services, you grant to us limited rights to store, use, display, and provide access to the Content you post as necessary to provide our Services, including Digital Services (defined and as further detailed below), such as to display your Resource in your store and in search results, to make your Resources available for download, and to display and promote your Resources through our Services, through email, and ads on other sites or search engines, and through other marketing campaigns. For these purposes, you grant to us a nonexclusive, irrevocable, perpetual (except as otherwise provided herein), worldwide, sublicensable license to exercise any copyright, trademark rights, or other rights in and to your Content necessary to provide our Services to you and our other Users.

Additionally, when you post or upload Resources to our Services, you grant CS, in its sole discretion, the right, to make your Resources available for use with digital (device-based and/or online) tools and features, as are now or hereafter, made available or enabled through the Services, such as any interactive resource tool that allows Resources to be turned into device-based interactive activities where tools and features are “Digital Services” and the Resources are “Digital Resources”. Digital Resources can be used by Members of the CS Marketplace and, as applicable, Schools (and School Users) using CS School Access, and each of their respective students (collectively, “Digital Users”). 

  • CS may designate Resources as Digital Resources throughout the Services.
  • CS may store, use, display, provide access to, and promote Digital Resources as needed to enable use of Digital Services, including for example — adjusting, reformatting, and modifying Digital Resources for technical purposes (for example to convert them to a digitizable format and to secure the underlying content), and reproducing, displaying, and distributing Digital Resources (for example to enable Digital Users to view and use them within Digital Services and in order to make unique copies available to students as needed). For purposes of this subparagraph, CS will only use your Digital Resources for purposes related to preparing them for use with Digital Services and delivering them to Digital Users (e.g. the technical steps we need to take in the background), and as otherwise permitted by this Section.
  • CS may make Digital Resources available to and facilitate use of Digital Resources by Digital Users as further described herein.

 

(For the avoidance of doubt, CS does not take or claim any ownership (copyright, trademark, or otherwise) in or to Digital Resources, and Sellers maintain the ownership they otherwise have in accordance with the Terms).

Rights you grant to others. When a Member purchases a license to use your Resource or downloads free Resources from you, you allow them to use your Resource as described in Section 3 of these Terms above, in accordance with the license type purchased by such Member and any other terms you expressly set forth in writing in connection with such Resources (as long as any additional terms do not conflict with these Terms). For clarity, you may, at your discretion and in accordance with these Terms and any other policies set forth by CS, grant additional rights to purchasers of your Resources, but you may not enforce limitations on such use that are inconsistent with the rights granted in Section 3.

For Classroom Licenses, the list price will automatically reflect an increase over the price you set for an Individual License, and will be determined by applying a default “premium” percentage (determined by CS) to the Individual License list price. The default premium percentage number is subject to change by CS. As a Seller, you may increase the premium percentage (and therefore the overall price of a Classroom License) based on available increments up to 100%, but you may not set a premium percentage lower than the default determined by CS. Please contact us for assistance.

Finally, you grant Digital Users the following additional rights with respect to Digital Resources notwithstanding anything to the contrary elsewhere in the Terms:

  • Digital Users may customize (“Digitize”) Digital Resources using functionality, as available, through Digital Services such as, but not limited to, selecting, combining and rearranging pages from Digital Resources, adding layered content on top of Digital Resources such as layered text or overwriting, interactive elements, layered images, drawings, video or audio files, and creating and appending answer keys to enable grading. Customized elements of Digital Resources, as described in this subparagraph, are digitized content (“Digitized Content”).  Digitizing does not permit a Digital User to extract the underlying content within the individual pages of the original Resource.
  • Digital Users may use Digital Resources and Digitized Content for Personal Use in accordance with available Digital Services functionality and integrations, including to share or assign Digital Resources and/or Digitized Content to enable student access and use. Digital Resources (and Digitized Content to the extent Digitized by the Seller) remain the intellectual property of the Seller. 

 

Security of your Content

Prior to uploading any Content, you are responsible for making sure it is properly scanned to ensure it does not contain or transmit viruses, malware, or other harmful software programs.

Effect of account closure or Resource deactivation.  If you or CS closes, suspends, or otherwise limits your Account or access to the Services, or downgrades your Account to a Buyer Membership, we’ll no longer display your store page or your Resource Listings, and your Resources, including Digital Resources, will no longer be available for purchase, download, or access by Members who haven’t previously purchased, downloaded, or accessed them. If you or CS deletes, deactivates, or disables (as available), a single Resource Listing, that Resource, including Digital Resources, will not be available for purchase, download, or access by Members who have not previously purchased, downloaded, or accessed the Resource, and the Resource will no longer be displayed in your store or in search results. In any of these events, CS will continue to store your Resource, including any Digital Resources as applicable, on our servers and will continue to make it available for download, access, or use by Members, including Digital Users, who have previously purchased, accessed or used the Resource, subject to other limitations set forth in these Terms. CS will continue to display your Communications unless you remove them from the Services before you go. If you do remove them, we’ll no longer display them on our Services, but we may continue to store a copy of them in our databases.

C. REPORTING INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY VIOLATIONS 

We respect the intellectual property rights of others and expect the same from all of our Members. No Member may post any material, information, communication, data, or anything else that infringes on the copyrights, trademarks, or patent rights of someone else.  We expect that each Resource posted by a Member is that Member’s original work (or, if it contains any content created by someone other than the Member, that the Member has a valid license or other authorization to use that content). 

It’s our policy to close the Accounts of Members who repeatedly or egregiously violate this policy.

We comply with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) and other laws governing the use of intellectual property. Our Copyright & Trademark Policy explains our policy and process for receiving notification and removing potentially infringing material from our Services. That policy is incorporated as part of these Terms.

5. Payment, Marketplace Earnings, & Payouts

A. PURCHASING TERMS & REFUNDS

Refund Policy.  When you list a Resource or make a purchase on CS, you agree to our Refund Policy. Except as provided in our Refund Policy, all sales are considered final and nonrefundable once an order is submitted. We may, in our sole discretion, modify our Refund Policy or, on a case-by-case basis, issue a refund for a reason that falls outside of our Refund Policy. Sellers can view a refund and any applicable refund note in their Sales Details report. Sellers may authorize a full or partial refund for any reason by contacting us.

Payment methods and currency.  We may offer a variety of payment methods to pay for purchases, such as a credit and debit card, PayPal Account, School Purchase Order, Coaching Share Account credit, or the available balance on a valid Coaching Share Gift Card. We accept payments in United States Dollars (USD). Cash payments and payments in other currencies will not be accepted. We may change or add to our accepted payment methods at any time and we are not obligated to accept payment by any means other than those accepted at the time of your purchase. 

School Purchase Orders. Payment by School Purchase Order is available only to schools, districts, and other eligible educational institutions. By submitting a School Purchase Order, you represent and warrant that you have authority to bind the purchasing entity in the transaction, and that the entity agrees to pay the total price as quoted on the CS Purchase Order Quote, including applicable processing fees. Invoices for School Purchase Orders must be paid in U.S. Dollars, and payment is due within twenty-one days of the Invoice Date. Cash payments and payments in other currencies will not be accepted.

Promise to pay.  When you buy something on CS (including Resources, Coaching Share Gift Cards, Account credit, Seller Memberships, promotional, marketing or other services which may be available to Sellers, and other products or services we may offer), you represent and warrant that you’re authorized to make the purchase and to use the payment method and billing information you’ve provided. You further agree that CS may charge your payment method the amount due, which will be in U.S. Dollars. We are not responsible for any additional fees you may be charged by your financial institution such as international transaction fees or overdraft fees. Payment for certain purchases by Sellers, such as promotional services, may be collected through a deduction from the Seller’s next Payout, or by credit or debit card if your current unpaid Payout amount is not enough to cover the purchase price. 

Failure to pay and payment disputes.  Failure to pay as promised may result in late fees being charged, Resources being removed from your Account, Account suspension or closure, or any other action we deem necessary. If we receive notice that you’ve disputed a charge related to a purchase made from your CS Account, we may, at our discretion, offer proof to challenge the dispute. Pending resolution of the dispute, we may remove the purchased Resources from your Account temporarily, or, if a refund is ultimately issued, permanently. In our discretion, we may take further action against your Account. 

B. MARKETPLACE EARNINGS & PAYOUTS

Marketplace Earnings.  For each sale through the CS Marketplace, Sellers earn the applicable Marketplace Payout Rate that applies to their Membership Type (“Marketplace Earnings”). Marketplace Earnings are reduced by the full amount of any Transaction Fees that apply, and increased by the full amount of any shipping fees charged. Marketplace Earnings, together with any other earnings Sellers can receive through our Services, such as through sales or access as part of CS School Access, are “Total Earnings”. For details on our Seller Membership options, and the Fees, and current Marketplace Payout Rates that apply to each, see our Seller Fees and Payout Rates policy. Unless otherwise specified, Total Earnings are paid in monthly payments (“Payouts”) according to the schedule described in this Section. 

Payout Account.  To issue Payouts, we work with third party companies which process and transfer funds between us and our Sellers (“Payment Services”). To receive Payouts, Sellers must have an Account capable of receiving payments with a supported Payment Service (“Payout Account”). You can find a list of supported Payment Services here. If you have questions about the status of your Payout Account, please reach out directly to the Payment Service you use. If you are unable to register a Payout Account with any of the supported Payment Services, we may consider alternative means of issuing Payouts at our discretion on a case-by-case basis. We make no guarantees about the services offered by any third party companies including current or any future Payment Services we may support, and we are not responsible for any payment delays or other complications caused by Payment Services. We may, at our discretion, modify the list of supported Payment Services at any time, discontinue support for an existing Payment Service, or make additional Payout options available. 

Schedule.  We issue Payouts on a monthly basis by the twenty-first day of the month following the month in which a sale was made. For example, Marketplace Earnings related to a sale made through the CS Marketplace in the month of January will be paid as part of a monthly Payout issued by February 21st. We may, at our sole discretion, withhold or delay a Payout due to any Seller who we believe to be in violation of any of these Terms. After the matter is resolved, we will either refund the associated sale(s) or complete the Payout.

Payment Service Fees.  Payment Services may assess transaction fees when we transfer your Payouts to you. We will deduct from your Payout an amount equal to or less than the transaction fee assessed to us by the Payment Services. These transaction fees are subject to change at the discretion of the Payment Services. We are not responsible for any additional fees or taxes you may incur from other third parties related to receiving or accessing your Payouts.

C. SALES TAX

Except in the case of Marketplace Collection (as defined below), you may have and are responsible for the collection and/or payment of any sales tax  (including where applicable, goods and services taxes (GST) or other similar sales, use, or value added taxes)  you may owe (collectively “Sales Tax”). CS Sellers may have the option to use a third party service integrated with the Services (the “Tax Services”) to enable Sales Tax collection for their CS store in jurisdictions where the Seller has designated (through their Account) a Sales Tax obligation.

Seller Obligations.  By operating as a Seller on CS, and whether or not you opt to use the Tax Services, you hereby agree to the following:
