Terms of Use

These Terms of Use (“Terms”) were last updated on May 20, 2021.

EduTrust’s mission is to improve lives through learning. We enable anyone anywhere to create and share educational content (instructors) and to access that educational content 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 EduTrust website, the EduTrust mobile applications, our TV applications, our APIs, and other related services (“Services”).

If you publish a course on the EduTrust 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 are using EduTrust as part of your employer’s EduTrust Business learning and development program, you can consult our EduTrust Business Privacy Statement.

If you live in the United States or Canada, by agreeing to these Terms, you agree to resolve disputes with EduTrust 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. Keep your password somewhere safe, because you’re responsible for all activity associated with your account. If you suspect someone else is using your account, let us know by contacting our Support Team. You must have reached the age of consent for online services in your country to use EduTrust.

You need an account for most activities on our platform, including to purchase and access content or to submit content 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 EduTrust 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 EduTrust 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 access content that is appropriate for you. If you are below this age of consent to use online services, you may not create a EduTrust 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 content for publication on EduTrust.

You can terminate your account at any time by following the steps here. Check our Privacy Policy to see what happens when you terminate your account.

2. Content Enrollment and Lifetime Access

When you enroll in a course or other content, you get a license from us to view it via the EduTrust Services and no other use. Don’t try to transfer or resell content in any way. We generally grant you a lifetime access license, except when we must disable the content because of legal or policy reasons or for enrollments via Subscription Plans.

Under our Instructor Terms, when instructors publish content on EduTrust, they grant EduTrust a license to offer a license to the content to students. This means that we have the right to sublicense the content to enrolled students. As a student, when you enroll in a course or other content, whether it’s free or paid content, you are getting a license from EduTrust to view the content via the EduTrust platform and Services, and EduTrust is the licensor of record. Content is licensed, and not sold, to you. This license does not give you any right to resell the content in any manner (including by sharing account information with a purchaser or illegally downloading the content and sharing it on torrent sites).

In legal, more complete terms, EduTrust grants you (as a student) a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable license to access and view the 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 the particular content 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 content unless we give you explicit permission to do so in a written agreement signed by a EduTrust 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 or other content. However, we reserve the right to revoke any license to access and use any content at any point in time in the event where we decide or are obligated to disable access to the content due to legal or policy reasons, for example, if the course or other content you enrolled in is the object of a copyright complaint, or if we determine it violates our Trust & Safety Guidelines. This lifetime access license does not apply to enrollments via Subscription Plans or to add-on features and services associated with the course or other content you enroll in. For example, instructors may decide at any time to no longer provide teaching assistance or Q&A services in association with the content. To be clear, the lifetime access is to the course content but not to the instructor.

Instructors may not grant licenses to their content to students directly, and any such direct license shall be null and void and a violation of these Terms.

3. Payments, Credits, and Refunds

When you make a payment, you agree to use a valid payment method. If you aren’t happy with your content, EduTrust offers a 30-day refund or credit for most content purchases.

3.1 Pricing

The prices of content on EduTrust are determined based on the terms of the Instructor Terms and our Promotions Policy. In some instances, the price of content offered on the EduTrust website may not be exactly the same as the price offered on our mobile or TV applications, due to mobile platform providers’ pricing systems and their policies around implementing sales and promotions.

We occasionally run promotions and sales for our content, during which certain content is available at discounted prices for a set period of time. The price applicable to the content will be the price at the time you complete your purchase of the content (at checkout). Any price offered for particular content 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 content 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. EduTrust works with payment service providers to offer you the most convenient payment methods in your country and to keep your payment information secure. We may update your payment methods using information provided by our payment service providers. 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 content 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 content for which we have not received adequate payment.

3.3 Refunds and Refund Credits

If the content you purchased is not what you were expecting, you can request, within 30 days of your purchase of the content, that EduTrust apply a refund to your account. This refund option does not apply to Subscription Plan purchases, which are covered in Section 8.4 below. 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 service providers, the platform from which you purchased your content (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 the content you previously purchased is disabled for legal or policy reasons, you are entitled to a refund beyond this 30-day limit. EduTrust also reserves the right to refund students beyond the 30-day limit in cases of suspected or confirmed account fraud.

To request a refund, follow the steps here. 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 content 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, in each case unless otherwise required by applicable law.

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

3.4 Gift and Promotional Codes

EduTrust or our partners may offer gift and promotional codes to students. Certain codes may be redeemed for gift or promotional credits applied to your EduTrust account, which then may be used to purchase eligible content on our platform, subject to the terms included with your codes. Other codes may be directly redeemable for specific content. Gift and promotional 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 EduTrust account. Gift and promotional codes offered by EduTrust 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, EduTrust may determine which of your credits to apply to your purchase. Check out our Support Page and any terms included with your codes for more details.

4. Content and Behavior Rules

You can only use EduTrust for lawful purposes. You’re responsible for all the content that you post on our platform. You should keep the reviews, questions, posts, courses and other content you upload in line with our Trust & Safety Guidelines and the law, and respect the intellectual property rights of others. We can ban your account for repeated or major offenses. If you think someone is infringing your copyright on our platform, let us know.

You may not access or use the Services or create an account for unlawful purposes. Your use of the Services and behavior on our platform must comply with applicable local or national laws or regulations of your country. You are solely responsible for the knowledge of and compliance with such laws and regulations that are applicable to you.

If you are a student, the Services enable you to ask questions to the instructors of courses or other content you are enrolled in, and to post reviews of content. For certain content, the instructor may invite you to submit content as “homework” or tests. Don’t post or submit anything that is not yours.

If you are an instructor, you can submit content for publication on the platform and you can also communicate with the students who have enrolled in your courses or other content. In both cases, you must abide by the law and respect the rights of others: you cannot post any course, question, answer, review or other content that violates applicable local or national laws or regulations of your country. You are solely responsible for any courses, content, and actions you post or take via the platform and Services and their consequences. Make sure you understand all the copyright restrictions set forth in the Instructor Terms before you submit any content for publication on EduTrust.

If we are put on notice that your course or content violates the law or the rights of others (for example, if it is established that it violates intellectual property or image rights of others, or is about an illegal activity), if we discover that your content or behavior violates our Trust & Safety Guidelines, or if we believe your content or behavior is unlawful, inappropriate, or objectionable (for example if you impersonate someone else), we may remove your content from our platform. EduTrust complies with copyright laws. Check out our Intellectual Property Policy for more details.

EduTrust has discretion in enforcing these Terms and our Trust & Safety Guidelines. We may restrict or terminate 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, for fraudulent chargeback requests, upon the request of law enforcement or government agencies, for extended periods of inactivity, for unexpected technical issues or problems, if we suspect that you engage in fraudulent or illegal activities, or for any other reason in our sole discretion. Upon any such termination we may delete your account and content, and we may prevent you from further access to the platforms and use of our Services. Your content may still be available on the platforms even if your account is terminated or suspended. You agree that we will have no liability to you or any third party for termination of your account, removal of your content, or blocking of your access to our platforms and services.

If a user has published content that infringes your copyright or trademark rights, please let us know. Our Instructor Terms require our instructors to follow the law and respect the intellectual property rights of others. For more details on how to file a copyright or trademark infringement claim with us, see our Intellectual Property Policy.

5. EduTrust’s Rights to Content You Post

You retain ownership of content you post to our platform, including your courses. We’re allowed to share your content to anyone through any media, including promoting it via advertising on other websites.

The content you post as a student or instructor (including courses) remains yours. By posting courses and other content, you allow EduTrust to reuse and share it but you do not lose any ownership rights you may have over your content. If you are an instructor, be sure to understand the content licensing terms that are detailed in the Instructor Terms.

When you post content, comments, questions, reviews, and when you submit to us ideas and suggestions for new features or improvements, you authorize EduTrust to use and share this content with anyone, distribute it and promote it on any platform and in any media, and to make modifications or edits to it as we see fit.

In legal language, by submitting or posting content on or through the platforms, you grant us a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free license (with the right to sublicense) to use, copy, reproduce, process, adapt, modify, publish, transmit, display, and distribute your content (including your name and image) in any and all media or distribution methods (existing now or later developed). This includes making your content available to other companies, organizations, or individuals who partner with EduTrust for the syndication, broadcast, distribution, or publication of content on other media, as well as using your content for marketing purposes. You also waive any rights of privacy, publicity, or other rights of a similar nature applicable to all these uses, to the extent permissible under applicable law. You represent and warrant that you have all the rights, power, and authority necessary to authorize us to use any content that you submit. You also agree to all such uses of your content with no compensation paid to you.

6. Using EduTrust at Your Own Risk

Anyone can use EduTrust to create and publish content and instructors and we enable instructors and students to interact for teaching and learning. Like other platforms where people can post content and interact, some things can go wrong, and you use EduTrust at your own risk.

Our platform model means we do not review or edit the content for legal issues, and we are not in a position to determine the legality of content. We do not exercise any editorial control over the content that is available on the platform and, as such, do not guarantee in any manner the reliability, validity, accuracy, or truthfulness of the content. If you access content, you rely on any information provided by an instructor at your own risk.

By using the Services, you may be exposed to content that you consider offensive, indecent, or objectionable. EduTrust has no responsibility to keep such content from you and no liability for your access or enrollment in any course or other content, to the extent permissible under applicable law. This also applies to any content relating to health, wellness, and physical exercise. You acknowledge the inherent risks and dangers in the strenuous nature of these types of content, and by accessing such content you choose to assume those risks voluntarily, including risk of illness, bodily injury, disability, or death. You assume full responsibility for the choices you make before, during, and after your access to the content.

When you interact directly with a student or an instructor, you must be careful about the types of personal information that you share. While we restrict the types of information instructors may request from students, we do not control what students and instructors do with the information they obtain from other users on the platform. You should not share your email or other personal information about you for your safety.

We do not hire or employ instructors nor are we responsible or liable for any interactions involved between instructors and students. We are not liable for disputes, claims, losses, injuries, or damage of any kind that might arise out of or relate to the conduct of instructors or students.

When you use our Services, you will find links to other websites that we don’t own or control. We are not responsible for the content or any other aspect of these third-party sites, including their collection of information about you. You should also read their terms and conditions and privacy policies.

7. EduTrust’s Rights

We own the EduTrust platform and Services, including the website, present or future apps and services, and things like our logos, API, code, and content created by our employees. You can’t tamper with those or use them without authorization.

All right, title, and interest in and to the EduTrust platform and Services, including our website, our existing or future applications, our APIs, databases, and the content our employees or partners submit or provide through our Services (but excluding content provided by instructors and students) are and will remain the exclusive property of EduTrust and its licensors. Our platforms and services are protected by copyright, trademark, and other laws of both the United States and foreign countries. Nothing gives you a right to use the EduTrust name or any of the EduTrust trademarks, logos, domain names, and other distinctive brand features. Any feedback, comments, or suggestions you may provide regarding EduTrust or the Services is entirely voluntary and we will be free to use such feedback, comments, or suggestions as we see fit and without any obligation to you.

You may not do any of the following while accessing or using the EduTrust platform and Services:

  • access, tamper with, or use non-public areas of the platform (including content storage), EduTrust’s computer systems, or the technical delivery systems of EduTrust’s service providers.
  • disable, interfere with, or try to circumvent any of the features of the platforms related to security or probe, scan, or test the vulnerability of any of our systems.
  • copy, modify, create a derivative work of, reverse engineer, reverse assemble, or otherwise attempt to discover any source code of or content on the EduTrust platform or Services.
  • access or search or attempt to access or search our platform by any means (automated or otherwise) other than through our currently available search functionalities that are provided via our website, mobile apps, or API (and only pursuant to those API terms and conditions). You may not scrape, spider, use a robot, or use other automated means of any kind to access the Services.
  • in any way use the Services to send altered, deceptive, or false source-identifying information (such as sending email communications falsely appearing as EduTrust); or interfere with, or disrupt, (or attempt to do so), the access of any user, host, or network, including, without limitation, sending a virus, overloading, flooding, spamming, or mail-bombing the platforms or services, or in any other manner interfering with or creating an undue burden on the Services.

8. Subscription Terms

This section covers additional terms that apply to your use of our subscription-based collections as a student (“Subscription Plans”). By using a Subscription Plan, you agree to the additional terms in this section. Note that use of EduTrust Business is not subject to these Terms, but is instead governed by the agreement between EduTrust and the subscribing organization.

8.1 Subscription Plans

During your subscription to a Subscription Plan, you get a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable license from us to access and view the content included in that Subscription Plan via the Services. With the exception of the lifetime access license grant, the terms included in the “Content Enrollment and Lifetime Access” section above apply to enrollments via Subscription Plans.

The subscription that you purchase or renew determines the scope, features, and price of your access to a Subscription Plan. You may not transfer, assign, or share your subscription with anyone else.

We reserve the right to revoke any license to use the content in our Subscription Plans for legal or policy reasons at any time and at our sole discretion, such as if we no longer have the right to offer the content through a Subscription Plan. Additional information on our right to revoke is included in the “Content Enrollment and Lifetime Access” section.

8.2 Account Management

You may cancel your subscription by following the steps outlined on our Support Page. If you cancel your subscription to a Subscription Plan, your access to that Subscription Plan will automatically end on the last day of your billing period. On cancellation, you will not be entitled to receive a refund or credit of any fees already paid for your subscription, unless otherwise required by applicable law. For clarity, cancellation of a subscription does not terminate your EduTrust account.

8.3 Free Trials & Renewals

Your subscription may start with a free trial. The duration of the free trial period of your subscription will be specified during sign-up. EduTrust determines free trial eligibility at our sole discretion and may limit eligibility or duration. We reserve the right to terminate the free trial and suspend your subscription if we determine that you aren’t eligible.

We will charge the subscription fee for your next billing cycle at the end of the free trial period. Your subscription will automatically renew according to your subscription settings (e.g., monthly or annually) unless you cancel your subscription prior to the end of the free trial period. For more information on how to view applicable fees and dates of your free trial period, visit our Support Page.

8.4 Payments and Billing

The subscription fee will be listed at the time of your purchase. You can visit our Support Page to learn more about where to find the fees and dates applicable to your subscription. We may also be required to add taxes to your subscription fee as described in the “Payments, Credits, and Refunds” section above. Payments are non-refundable and there are no refunds or credits for partially used periods, unless otherwise required by applicable law. Depending on where you are located, you may qualify for a refund. See our Refund Policy for Subscription Plans for additional information.

To subscribe to a Subscription Plan, you must provide a payment method. By subscribing to a Subscription Plan and providing your billing information during checkout, you grant us and our payment service providers the right to process payment for the then-applicable fees via the payment method we have on record for you. At the end of each subscription term, we will automatically renew your subscription for the same length of term and process your payment method for payment of the then-applicable fees.

In the event that we update your payment method using information provided by our payment service providers (as described in the “Payments, Credits, and Refunds” section above), you authorize us to continue to charge the then-applicable fees to your updated payment method.

If we are unable to process payment through the payment method we have on file for you, or if you file a chargeback disputing charges made to your payment method and the chargeback is granted, we may suspend or terminate your subscription.

We reserve the right to change our Subscription Plans or adjust pricing for our Services at our sole discretion. Any price changes or changes to your subscription will take effect following notice to you, except as otherwise required by applicable law.

8.5 Subscription Disclaimers

We make no guarantees as to the availability of any specific content in any Subscription Plan or as to any minimum amount of content in any Subscription Plan. At any point in the future, we reserve the right to offer or cease to offer additional features to any Subscription Plan, or to otherwise modify or terminate a Subscription Plan at our sole discretion. These disclaimers are in addition to those listed in the “Disclaimers” section below.

9. Miscellaneous Legal Terms

These Terms are like any other contract, and they have boring but important legal terms that protect us from the countless things that could happen and that clarify the legal relationship between us and you.

9.1 Binding Agreement

You agree that by registering, accessing, or using our Services, you are agreeing to enter into a legally binding contract with EduTrust. 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 (Content Enrollment and Lifetime Access), 5 (EduTrust’s Rights to Content You Post), 6 (Using EduTrust at Your Own Risk), 7 (EduTrust’s Rights), 8.5 (Subscription Disclaimers), 9 (Miscellaneous Legal Terms), and 10 (Dispute Resolution).

9.2 Disclaimers

It may happen that our platform is down, either for planned maintenance or because something goes down with the site. It may happen that one of our instructors is making misleading statements in their content. It may also happen that we encounter security issues. These are just examples. You accept that you will not have any recourse against us in any of these types of cases where things don’t work out right. In legal, more complete language, the Services and their content are provided on an “as is” and “as available” basis. We (and our affiliates, suppliers, partners, and agents) make no representations or warranties about the suitability, reliability, availability, timeliness, security, lack of errors, or accuracy of the Services or their content, and expressly disclaim any warranties or conditions (express or implied), including implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, title, and non-infringement. We (and our affiliates, suppliers, partners, and agents) make no warranty that you will obtain specific results from use of the Services. Your use of the Services (including any content) is entirely at your own risk. Some jurisdictions don’t allow the exclusion of implied warranties, so some of the above exclusions may not apply to you.

We may decide to cease making available certain features of the Services at any time and for any reason. Under no circumstances will EduTrust or its affiliates, suppliers, partners or agents be held liable for any damages due to such interruptions or lack of availability of such features.

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.

9.3 Limitation of Liability

There are risks inherent to using our Services, for example, if you access health and wellness content like yoga, and you injure yourself. You fully accept these risks and you agree that you will have no recourse to seek damages against even if you suffer loss or damage from using our platform and Services. In legal, more complete language, to the extent permitted by law, we (and our group companies, suppliers, partners, and agents) will not be liable for any indirect, incidental, punitive, or consequential damages (including loss of data, revenue, profits, or business opportunities, or personal injury or death), whether arising in contract, warranty, tort, product liability, or otherwise, and even if we’ve been advised of the possibility of damages in advance. Our liability (and the liability of each of our group companies, suppliers, partners, and agents) to you or any third parties under any circumstance is limited to the greater of one hundred dollars ($100) or the amount you have paid us in the twelve (12) months before the event giving rise to your claims. Some jurisdictions don’t allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, so some of the above may not apply to you.

9.4 Indemnification

If you behave in a way that gets us in legal trouble, we may exercise legal recourse against you. You agree to indemnify, defend (if we so request), and hold harmless EduTrust, 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.

9.5 Governing Law and Jurisdiction

When these Terms mention “EduTrust,” they’re referring to the EduTrust entity that you’re contracting with. If you’re a student, your contracting entity and governing law will generally be determined based on your location.

If you’re a student located in India, you’re contracting with EduTrust India LLP and these Terms are governed by the laws of India, without reference to its choice or conflicts of law principles, and you consent to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of the courts in Delhi, India.

If you’re a student located in a geographical region other than India, or if you’re accessing our Services as an instructor, you’re contracting with EduTrust, Inc. and these Terms are governed by the laws of the State of California, USA without reference to its choice or conflicts of law principles. In cases where the “Dispute Resolution” section below doesn’t apply to you, you consent to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of federal and state courts in San Francisco, California, USA.

9.6 Legal Actions and Notices

No action, regardless of form, arising out of or relating to this Agreement may be brought by either party more than one (1) year after the cause of action has accrued, except where this limitation cannot be imposed by law.

Any notice or other communication to be given hereunder will be in writing and given by registered or certified mail return receipt requested, or email (by us to the email associated with your account or by you to notices@EduTrust.com).

9.7 Relationship Between Us

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

9.8 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.

9.9 Sanctions and Export Laws

You warrant that you (as an individual or as a representative of any entity on whose behalf you use the Services) aren’t located in, or a resident of, any country that is subject to applicable U.S. trade sanctions or embargoes (such as Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Sudan, Syria, or the Crimea region of Ukraine). You also warrant that you aren’t a person or entity who is named on any U.S. government specially designated national or denied-party list.

If you become subject to such a restriction during the term of any agreement with EduTrust, you will notify us 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 EduTrust).

You may not access, use, export, re-export, divert, transfer or disclose any portion of the Services or any related technical information or materials, directly or indirectly, in violation of any United States and other applicable country export control and trade sanctions laws, rules and regulations. You agree not to upload any content or technology (including information on encryption) whose export is specifically controlled under such laws.

10. Dispute Resolution

If there’s a dispute, our Support Team is happy to help resolve the issue. If that doesn’t work and you live in the United States or Canada, your options are to go to small claims court or bring a claim in binding arbitration; you may not bring that claim in another court or participate in a non-individual class action claim against us.

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.

10.1 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.

10.2 Going to Arbitration

If we can’t resolve our dispute amicably, you and EduTrust 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.

10.3 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.

10.4 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.

10.5 Changes

Notwithstanding the “Updating these Terms” section below, if EduTrust changes this “Dispute Resolution” section after the date you last indicated acceptance to these Terms, you may reject any such change by providing EduTrust written notice of such rejection by mail or hand delivery to EduTrust Attn: Legal, 600 Harrison Street, 3rd Floor, San Francisco, CA 94107, or by email from the email address associated with your Account to notices@EduTrust.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 EduTrust in accordance with the provisions of this “Dispute Resolution” section as of the date you last indicated acceptance to these Terms.

11. 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 EduTrust 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.

12. 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.

Thanks for teaching and learning with us!

 

Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy was last updated on December 1, 2021.

Thank you for joining EduTrust. We at EduTrust (“EduTrust”“we”“us”) respect your privacy and want you to understand how we collect, use, and share data about you. This Privacy Policy covers our data collection practices and describes your rights regarding your personal data.

Unless we link to a different policy or state otherwise, this Privacy Policy applies when you visit or use the EduTrust and CorpU websites, mobile applications, APIs, or related services, including CorpU Open (the “Services”). It also applies to prospective customers of our business and enterprise products.

By using the Services, you agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy. You shouldn’t use the Services if you don’t agree with this Privacy Policy or any other agreement that governs your use of the Services.

Table of Contents

1. What Data We Get

We collect certain data from you directly, like information you enter yourself, data about your consumption of content, and data from third-party platforms you connect with EduTrust. We also collect some data automatically, like information about your device and what parts of our Services you interact with or spend time using.

1.1 Data You Provide to Us

We may collect different data from or about you depending on how you use the Services. Below are some examples to help you better understand the data we collect.

When you create an account and use the Services, including through a third-party platform, we collect any data you provide directly, including:

Account Data

In order to use certain features (like accessing content), you need to create a user account which requires us to collect and store your email address, password, and account settings. To create an instructor account, we collect and store your name, email address, password, and account settings. As you use certain features on the site, you may be prompted to submit additional information including occupation, government ID information, verification photo, date of birth, race/ethnicity, skill interests, and phone number. Upon account creation, we assign you a unique identifying number.

Profile Data

You can also choose to provide profile information like a photo, headline, biography, language, website link, social media profiles, country, or other data. Your Profile Data will be publicly viewable by others.

Shared Content

Parts of the Services let you interact with other users or share content publicly, including by posting reviews about content, asking or answering questions, sending messages to students or instructors, or posting photos or other work you upload. Such shared content may be publicly viewable by others depending on where it is posted.

Educational Content Data

When you access content, we collect certain data including which courses, assignments, labs, workspaces, and quizzes you’ve started and completed; content purchases and credits; subscriptions; completion certificates; your exchanges with instructors, teaching assistants, and other students; and essays, answers to questions, and other items submitted to satisfy course and related content requirements. If you are an instructor, we store your educational content which may contain data about you.

Student Payment Data

If you make purchases, we collect certain data about your purchase (such as your name, billing address, and ZIP code) as necessary to process your order and which may optionally be saved to process future orders. You must provide certain payment and billing data directly to our payment service providers, including your name, credit card information, billing address, and ZIP code. We may also receive limited information, like the fact that you have a new card and the last four digits of that card, from payment service providers to facilitate payments. For security, EduTrust does not collect or store sensitive cardholder data, such as full credit card numbers or card authentication data.

Instructor Payment Data

If you are an instructor, you can link your PayPal, Payoneer, or other payment account to the Services to receive payments. When you link a payment account, we collect and use certain information, including your payment account email address, account ID, physical address, or other data necessary for us to send payments to your account. In some instances, we may collect ACH or wire information to send payments to your account. In order to comply with applicable laws, we also work with trusted third parties who collect tax information as legally required. This tax information may include residency information, tax identification numbers, biographical information, and other personal information necessary for taxation purposes. For security, EduTrust does not collect or store sensitive bank account information. The collection, use, and disclosure of your payment, billing, and taxation data is subject to the privacy policy and other terms of your payment account provider.

Data About Your Accounts on Other Services

We may obtain certain information through your social media or other online accounts if they are connected to your EduTrust account. If you login to EduTrust via Facebook or another third-party platform or service, we ask for your permission to access certain information about that other account. For example, depending on the platform or service we may collect your name, profile picture, account ID number, login email address, location, physical location of your access devices, gender, birthday, and list of friends or contacts.

Those platforms and services make information available to us through their APIs. The information we receive depends on what information you (via your privacy settings) or the platform or service decide to give us.

If you access or use our Services through a third-party platform or service, or click on any third-party links, the collection, use, and sharing of your data will also be subject to the privacy policies and other agreements of that third party.

Sweepstakes, Promotions, and Surveys

We may invite you to complete a survey or participate in a promotion (like a contest, sweepstakes, or challenge), either through the Services or a third-party platform. If you participate, we will collect and store the data you provide as part of participating, such as your name, email address, postal address, date of birth, or phone number. That data is subject to this Privacy Policy unless otherwise stated in the official rules of the promotion or in another privacy policy. The data collected will be used to administer the promotion or survey, including for notifying winners and distributing rewards. To receive a reward, you may be required to allow us to post some of your information publicly (like on a winner’s page). Where we use a third-party platform to administer a survey or promotion, the third party’s privacy policy will apply.

Communications and Support

If you contact us for support or to report a problem or concern (regardless of whether you have created an account), we collect and store your contact information, messages, and other data about you like your name, email address, messages, location, EduTrust user ID, refund transaction IDs, and any other data you provide or that we collect through automated means (which we cover below). We use this data to respond to you and research your question or concern, in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

The data listed above is stored by us and associated with your account.

1.2 Data We Collect through Automated Means

When you access the Services (including browsing content), we collect certain data by automated means, including:

System Data

Technical data about your computer or device, like your IP address, device type, operating system type and version, unique device identifiers, browser, browser language, domain and other systems data, and platform types.

Usage Data

Usage statistics about your interactions with the Services, including content accessed, time spent on pages or the Service, pages visited, features used, your search queries, click data, date and time, referrer, and other data regarding your use of the Services.

Approximate Geographic Data

An approximate geographic location, including information like country, city, and geographic coordinates, calculated based on your IP address.

The data listed above is collected through the use of server log files and tracking technologies, as detailed in the “Cookies and Data Collection Tools” section below. It is stored by us and associated with your account.

1.3 Data From Third Parties

If you are a EduTrust Business enterprise or corporate prospect, in addition to information you submit to us, we may collect certain business contact information from third-party commercial sources.

2. How We Get Data About You

We use tools like cookies, web beacons, and similar tracking technologies to gather the data listed above. Some of these tools offer you the ability to opt out of data collection.

2.1 Cookies and Data Collection Tools

We use cookies, which are small text files stored by your browser, to collect, store, and share data about your activities across websites, including on EduTrust. They allow us to remember things about your visits to EduTrust, like your preferred language, and to make the site easier to use. To learn more about cookies, visit https://cookiepedia.co.uk/all-about-cookies. We may also use clear pixels in emails to track deliverability and open rates.

EduTrust and service providers acting on our behalf (like Google Analytics and third-party advertisers) use server log files and automated data collection tools like cookies, tags, scripts, customized links, device or browser fingerprints, and web beacons (together, “Data Collection Tools“) when you access and use the Services. These Data Collection Tools automatically track and collect certain System Data and Usage Data (as detailed in Section 1) when you use the Services. In some cases, we tie data gathered through those Data Collection Tools to other data that we collect as described in this Privacy Policy.

2.2 Why We Use Data Collection Tools

EduTrust uses the following types of Data Collection Tools for the purposes described:

  • Strictly Necessary: These Data Collection Tools enable you to access the site, provide basic functionality (like logging in or accessing content), secure the site, protect against fraudulent logins, and detect and prevent abuse or unauthorized use of your account. These are required for the Services to work properly, so if you disable them, parts of the site will break or be unavailable.
  • Functional: These Data Collection Tools remember data about your browser and your preferences, provide additional site functionality, customize content to be more relevant to you, and remember settings affecting the appearance and behavior of the Services (like your preferred language or volume level for video playback).
  • Performance: These Data Collection Tools help measure and improve the Services by providing usage and performance data, visit counts, traffic sources, or where an application was downloaded from. These tools can help us test different versions of EduTrust to see which features or content users prefer and determine which email messages are opened.
  • Advertising: These Data Collection Tools are used to deliver relevant ads (on the site and/or other sites) based on things we know about you like your Usage and System Data (as detailed in Section 1), and things that the ad service providers know about you based on their tracking data. The ads can be based on your recent activity or activity over time and across other sites and services. To help deliver tailored advertising, we may provide these service providers with a hashed, anonymized version of your email address (in a non-human-readable form) and content that you share publicly on the Services.
  • Social Media: These Data Collection Tools enable social media functionality, like sharing content with friends and networks. These cookies may track a user or device across other sites and build a profile of user interests for targeted advertising purposes.

You can set your web browser to alert you about attempts to place cookies on your computer, limit the types of cookies you allow, or refuse cookies altogether. If you do, you may not be able to use some or all features of the Services, and your experience may be different or less functional. To learn more about managing Data Collection Tools, refer to Section 6.1 (Your Choices About the Use of Your Data) below.

3. What We Use Your Data For

We use your data to do things like provide our Services, communicate with you, troubleshoot issues, secure against fraud and abuse, improve and update our Services, analyze how people use our Services, serve personalized advertising, and as required by law or necessary for safety and integrity. We retain your data for as long as it is needed to serve the purposes for which it was collected.

We use the data we collect through your use of the Services to:

  • Provide and administer the Services, including to facilitate participation in educational content, issue completion certificates, display customized content, and facilitate communication with other users;

    • Sending push notifications to your wireless device to provide updates and other relevant messages (which you can manage from the “options” or “settings” page of the mobile app);
  • Manage your account and account preferences and personalize your experience;
  • Facilitate the Services’ technical functioning, including troubleshooting and resolving issues, securing the Services, and preventing fraud and abuse;
  • Verify the identity of instructors;
  • Solicit feedback from users;
  • Market products, services, surveys, and promotions;

  • Tailor advertisements across devices;
  • Improve our Services and develop new products, services, and features;
  • Analyze trends and traffic, track purchases, and track usage data;
  • Advertise the Services on third-party websites and applications;
  • As required or permitted by law; or
  • As we, in our sole discretion, otherwise determine to be necessary to ensure the safety or integrity of our users, employees, third parties, the public, or our Services.

4. Who We Share Your Data With

We share certain data about you with instructors, other students, companies performing services for us, EduTrust affiliates, our business partners, analytics and data enrichment providers, your social media providers, companies helping us run promotions and surveys, and advertising companies who help us promote our Services. We may also share your data as needed for security, legal compliance, or as part of a corporate restructuring. Lastly, we can share data in other ways if it is aggregated or de-identified or if we get your consent.

We may share your data with third parties under the following circumstances or as otherwise described in this Privacy Policy:

  • With Your Instructors: We share data that we have about you (except your email address) with instructors or teaching assistants for educational content you access or request information about, so they can improve their content for you and other students. This data may include things like your city, country, browser language, operating system, device settings, the site that brought you to EduTrust, and your activities on EduTrust. If we collect additional data about you (like age or gender), we may share that too. We will not share your email address with instructors or teaching assistants.
  • With Other Students and Instructors: Depending on your settings, your shared content and profile data may be publicly viewable, including to other students and instructors. If you ask a question to an instructor or teaching assistant, your information (including your name) may also be publicly viewable. Note that within CorpU Open, all chat rooms, message boards, news groups, or other public forums available to participants are publicly visible to other participants, so you shouldn’t post any confidential or proprietary information through those features.
  • With Service Providers, Contractors, and Agents: We share your data with third-party companies who perform services on our behalf, like payment processing, fraud and abuse prevention, data analysis, marketing and advertising services (including retargeted advertising), email and hosting services, and customer services and support. These service providers may access your personal data and are required to use it solely as we direct, to provide our requested service.
  • With EduTrust Affiliates: We may share your data within our corporate family of companies that are related by common ownership or control to enable or support us in providing the Services.
  • With Business Partners: We have agreements with other websites and platforms to distribute our Services and drive traffic to EduTrust. For example, we work with Benesse in Japan. Depending on your location, we may share your data with these partners.
  • With Credit-Granting Organizations for Continuing Education: If you take a course to fulfill a continuing professional education requirement, we may share that information upon request of the organization granting the continuing education credit.
  • With Analytics and Data Enrichment Services: As part of our use of third-party analytics tools like Google Analytics and data enrichment services like ZoomInfo, we share certain contact information, Account Data, System Data, Usage Data (as detailed in Section 1), or de-identified data as needed. De-identified data means data where we’ve removed things like your name and email address and replaced it with a token ID. This allows these providers to provide analytics services or match your data with publicly-available database information (including contact and social information from other sources). We do this to communicate with you in a more effective and customized manner.
  • To Power Social Media Features: The social media features in the Services (like the Facebook Like button) may allow the third-party social media provider to collect things like your IP address and which page of the Services you’re visiting, and to set a cookie to enable the feature. Your interactions with these features are governed by the third-party company’s privacy policy.
  • To Administer Promotions and Surveys: We may share your data as necessary to administer, market, or sponsor promotions and surveys you choose to participate in, as required by applicable law (like to provide a winners list or make required filings), or in accordance with the rules of the promotion or survey.
  • For Advertising: If we decide to use an advertising-supported revenue model in the future, we may use and share certain System Data and Usage Data with third-party advertisers and networks to show general demographic and preference information among our users. We may also allow advertisers to collect System Data through Data Collection Tools (as detailed in Section 2.1), to use this data to offer you targeted ad delivery to personalize your user experience (through behavioral advertising), and to undertake web analytics. Advertisers may also share with us the data they collect about you. To learn more or opt out from participating ad networks’ behavioral advertising, see Section 6.1 (Your Choices About the Use of Your Data) below. Note that if you opt out, you’ll continue to be served generic ads.
  • For Security and Legal Compliance: We may disclose your data to third parties if we (in our sole discretion) have a good faith belief that the disclosure is:
    • Permitted or required by law;
    • Requested as part of a judicial, governmental, or legal inquiry, order, or proceeding;
    • Reasonably necessary as part of a valid subpoena, warrant, or other legally-valid request;
    • Reasonably necessary to enforce our Terms of Use, Privacy Policy, and other legal agreements;
    • Required to detect, prevent, or address fraud, abuse, misuse, potential violations of law (or rule or regulation), or security or technical issues; or
    • Reasonably necessary in our discretion to protect against imminent harm to the rights, property, or safety of EduTrust, our users, employees, members of the public, or our Services.
    • We may also disclose data about you to our auditors and legal advisors in order to assess our disclosure obligations and rights under this Privacy Policy.
  • During a Change in Control: If EduTrust undergoes a business transaction like a merger, acquisition, corporate divestiture, or dissolution (including bankruptcy), or a sale of all or some of its assets, we may share, disclose, or transfer all of your data to the successor organization during such transition or in contemplation of a transition (including during due diligence).
  • After Aggregation/De-identification: We may disclose or use aggregated or de-identified data for any purpose.
  • With Your Permission: With your consent, we may share data to third parties outside the scope of this Privacy Policy.

5. Security

We use appropriate security based on the type and sensitivity of data being stored. As with any internet-enabled system, there is always a risk of unauthorized access, so it’s important to protect your password and to contact us if you suspect any unauthorized access to your account.

EduTrust takes appropriate security measures to protect against unauthorized access, alteration, disclosure, or destruction of your personal data that we collect and store. These measures vary based on the type and sensitivity of the data. Unfortunately, however, no system can be 100% secured, so we cannot guarantee that communications between you and EduTrust, the Services, or any information provided to us in connection with the data we collect through the Services will be free from unauthorized access by third parties. Your password is an important part of our security system, and it is your responsibility to protect it. You should not share your password with any third party, and if you believe your password or account has been compromised, you should change it immediately and contact our Support Team with any concerns.

6. Your Rights

You have certain rights around the use of your data, including the ability to opt out of promotional emails, cookies, and collection of your data by certain third parties. You can update or terminate your account from within our Services, and can also contact us for individual rights requests about your personal data. Parents who believe we’ve unintentionally collected personal data about their underage child should contact us for help deleting that information.

6.1 Your Choices About the Use of Your Data

You can choose not to provide certain data to us, but you may not be able to use certain features of the Services.

  • To stop receiving promotional communications from us, you can opt out by using the unsubscribe mechanism in the promotional communication you receive or by changing the email preferences in your account. Note that regardless of your email preference settings, we will send you transactional and relationship messages regarding the Services, including administrative confirmations, order confirmations, important updates about the Services, and notices about our policies.
  • If you’re located in the European Economic Area, you may opt out of certain Data Collection Tools by clicking the “Cookie settings“ link at the bottom of any page.
  • The browser or device you use may allow you to control cookies and other types of local data storage. To learn more about managing cookies, visit https://cookiepedia.co.uk/how-to-manage-cookies. Your wireless device may also allow you to control whether location or other data is collected and shared.
  • To get information and control cookies used for tailored advertising from participating companies, see the consumer opt-out pages for the Network Advertising Initiative and Digital Advertising Alliance, or if you’re located in the European Economic Area, visit the Your Online Choices site. If you’re located in Japan, visit the Digital Advertising Consortium. To opt out of Google’s display advertising or customize Google Display Network ads, visit the Google Ads Settings page. To opt out of Taboola’s targeted ads, see the Opt-out Link in their Cookie Policy.
  • To opt out of allowing Google Analytics, Mixpanel, ZoomInfo, or Clearbit to use your data for analytics or enrichment, see the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-onMixpanel Opt-Out CookieZoomInfo’s policy, and Clearbit data claiming mechanism.
  • Apple iOS, Android OS, and Microsoft Windows each provide their own instructions on how to control in-app tailored advertising. For other devices and operating systems, you should review your privacy settings on that platform.

If you have any questions about your data, our use of it, or your rights, contact us at privacy@EduTrust.com.

6.2 Accessing, Updating, and Deleting Your Personal Data

Even after your account is terminated, we retain your data for as long as we have a legitimate purpose to do so (and in accordance with applicable law), including to assist with legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements. We may retain and disclose such data pursuant to this Privacy Policy after your account has been terminated.
  • To request to access, correct, or delete your personal data, please use our online form here. You can also submit these requests by emailing privacy@EduTrust.com or writing to us at EduTrust, Attn: Privacy/Legal Team, 600 Harrison Street, 3rd floor, San Francisco CA 94107.

For your protection, we may require that the request be sent through the email address associated with your account, and we may need to verify your identity before implementing your request. Please note that we retain certain data where we have a lawful basis to do so, including for mandatory record-keeping and to complete transactions.

6.3 Our Policy Concerning Children

We recognize the privacy interests of children and encourage parents and guardians to take an active role in their children’s online activities and interests. Individuals younger than 18 years of age, but of the required age for consent to use online services where they live (for example, 13 in the US or 16 in Ireland), may not set up an account, but may have a parent or guardian open an account and help them access appropriate content. Individuals younger than the required age for consent to use online services may not use the Services. If we learn that we’ve collected personal data from a child under those ages, we will take reasonable steps to delete it.

Parents who believe that EduTrust may have collected personal data from a child under those ages can submit a request that it be removed to privacy@EduTrust.com.

7. Jurisdiction-Specific Rules

If you live in California, you have certain rights related to accessing and deleting your data, as well as learning who we share your data with. If you live in Australia, you have the right to make a formal complaint with the appropriate government agency. Users outside of the United States should note that we transfer data to the US and other areas outside of the European Economic Area.

7.1 Users in California

Users who are California residents have certain rights under the California Consumer Privacy Act, (“CCPA”). If you are an eligible California user, included in these rights are:

  • “Right to Know” — You have the right to request to know more about the categories and specific pieces of personal information that we have collected about you and access a copy of your personal information.
  • “Right to Correction” — You have the right to have inaccurate personal information about you corrected.
  • “Right to Deletion” — You have the right to request deletion of personal information that we have collected about you.
  • “Right to Non-Discrimination” — If you choose to exercise any of your rights under CCPA, EduTrust will treat you like all other users. In other words, there is no penalty for exercising your rights under CCPA.
  • “Right to Opt-Out” – You have the right to opt out of the sale of your personal information.

CCPA has a specific definition of a “sale” and while EduTrust does not, in the traditional sense, sell your personal information or the personal information of any of our users, we do use cookies that make non-personally identifiable information available to select third-parties. To opt out of such a “sale,” click on the “Do Not Sell My Personal Information” link at the bottom of this page.

To exercise any of these rights under CCPA, please email privacy@EduTrust.com or write to us at EduTrust, Attn: Privacy/Legal Team, 600 Harrison Street, 3rd floor, San Francisco CA 94107. CCPA allows you to designate an authorized agent to make these requests on your behalf. For your protection, we may require that the request be sent through the email address associated with your account, and we may need to verify you and/or your agent’s identity before fulfilling your request.

Additionally, for more information about the personal information we collect and how we collect it, please see the sections above entitled “What Data We Get” and “How We Get Data About You.”

To learn about the business and commercial purposes for which your personal information is collected and the categories of service providers who have access to your personal information, please see the sections above entitled “What We Use Your Data For” and “Who We Share Your Data With.”

As a California resident, you also have the right to request certain details about what personal information we share with third parties for those third parties’ direct marketing purposes. To submit your request, send an email to privacy@EduTrust.com with the phrase “California Shine the Light” and include your mailing address, state of residence, and email address.

Since there is no widely accepted standard for the browser-initiated Do Not Track signal, we do not currently recognize or respond to Do Not Track signals.

7.2 Users in Nevada

EduTrust does not sell its users’ personal information or personal data. Nonetheless, Nevada residents have the right to submit a request that we do not sell your covered personal information, which you can do by emailing privacy@EduTrust.com or writing to us at EduTrust, Attn: Privacy/Legal Team, 600 Harrison Street, 3rd floor, San Francisco CA 94107.

7.3 Users in Australia

If you are an Australia resident and you have a complaint, you may refer it to the office of the Australian Information Commissioner (“OAIC”). You can contact OAIC by visiting www.oaic.gov.au; forwarding an email to enquiries@oaic.gov.au; telephoning 1300 363 992; or writing to OAIC at GPO Box 5218, Sydney NSW 2001. You may contact our privacy team at privacy@EduTrust.com to make a complaint about a breach of the Australian Privacy Principles which will be responded to within 30 days.

7.4 Users in the European Economic Area (“EEA”) and United Kingdom (“UK”)

Intellectual Property Policy

This Intellectual Property Policy was last updated on November 4, 2021.

EduTrust is a technology platform that enables anyone anywhere to create and share educational content. We host hundreds and thousands of courses on our online learning marketplace. Our marketplace model means we don’t review or edit the content for legal issues, and we aren’t in a position to determine the legality of the content. However, EduTrust respects the intellectual property rights of others and expects instructors on EduTrust to do the same. When instructors post content on EduTrust, they make the promise that they have the necessary authorization or rights to use that content.

Infringing activity is not tolerated on or through our platform.

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

Copyright Takedown Notices

EduTrust’s policy is to remove content from our service when it is reported as infringing in a copyright takedown notice received from the owner of the original content. It’s also our policy to remove all content from any instructor who’s determined to be a repeat infringer (for whom EduTrust has received more than two valid copyright 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 Copyright Takedown Notice

If you’d like to report content on the EduTrust platform and if you are the owner or the designated agent of the owner of the rights to the content that you believe the content is infringing, the most efficient way is to use this copyright complaint form (form in English only). You may also submit notices of alleged copyright infringement to our designated copyright agent, identified below.

Before you submit a copyright takedown notice, 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 content you are reporting has received proper permission from the owner to use the content. We’ll ask you to provide an electronic signature to confirm that you’re the copyright owner or have authority to represent the copyright owner (including if the copyright owner is an organization). If you don’t own the content that you’re reporting, you’re welcome to reach out to the owner and provide them with EduTrust’s copyright complaint form.
  2. Knowingly submitting a false or misleading copyright takedown notice is illegal and you could be held liable and have to pay damages as a result. EduTrust reserves the right to seek damages from anyone who submits a notification of claimed infringement in violation of the law.
  3. Consider whether the use of your material in the content 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. Before you submit a copyright claim, make sure that use of the copied content does not qualify as fair use. Fair use covers things like criticism, commentary, news reporting, and research. In considering whether the content’s use of your material qualifies as fair use, you should look at:
    • The purpose of the use (whether the content is paid or unpaid, whether the content 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 content 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 content instead of your material)
  4. There are types of content that aren’t 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 copied content is indeed protected by copyright. If you need to report a trademark violation, please follow the steps outlined in the How to Submit a Trademark Takedown Notice section below.
  5. Your copyright claim has to be sufficiently substantiated for us to 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’re filing a notice 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 content on the EduTrust platform (the URL on our website and the exact name of the course and instructor); and
    • 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”.

Counter-Notification

If we receive a valid copyright takedown notice, we’ll send a copy of that notice to the instructor who posted the reported content along with a notification that: (1) the content was reported for copyright infringement and (2) we’re removing the content from the EduTrust platform. We’ll also attach a form that the instructor can fill in and send back to us to submit a counter-notification. If your content has been reported for copyright infringement and removed from the EduTrust platform, and if you believe we made a mistake or that you have permission from the owner of the reported content to use such content, then you may send us a counter-notification.

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. EduTrust 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.

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 EduTrust 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 content that was removed and the location (URL) at which it appeared before it was removed (you can access this information from the copyright takedown notice filed against your content; 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) EduTrust 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 EduTrust).

Trademark Takedown Notices

EduTrust’s policy is to remove content from our platform when it’s reported and found to be infringing a third-party trademark. If you’re a trademark owner or a trademark owner’s authorized representative, you may submit trademark takedown notices to EduTrust. EduTrust reserves the right to terminate an instructor’s account at any time, including when they post content in violation of the trademark rights of another from its marketplace.

How to Submit a Trademark Takedown Notice

The fastest and easiest way to submit a trademark takedown notice to us is to use this trademark complaint form. Please note that a copy of your notice will be sent to the uploader of the content you are reporting.

Before you submit a trademark takedown notice, please remember these important things:

  1. Your trademark claim has to be sufficiently substantiated for us to 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;
    • Precise location(s) in the reported course URL(s) where your registered trademark can be found;
    • 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.”;
    • The following statement: “I agree that EduTrust may forward my complaint, including my contact information, to the affected user.”; and
    • 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. EduTrust 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 content is “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 content. Before you submit a trademark claim, make sure that use of your trademark in the content does not qualify as fair use.

Infringement of your EduTrust Content on Third-Party Platforms

We understand that when you post and make available your content on the EduTrust platform, you want to make sure that you won’t find that content offered on another platform without your permission. To help combat copyright infringement and piracy affecting courses of our instructors, we’ve partnered with an anti-piracy vendor to seek instances of infringement and to have them removed from most major search engines to stop traffic going forward.

In the event you find your course available on another platform without your permission, please fill out the third-party piracy reporting form so that we can pursue action.

EduTrust’s Designated Agent for notices of reported infringement can be contacted in the following manner:

Customer shall reimburse EduTrust and hold EduTrust harmless for Taxes or levies to which EduTrust is required to collect or remit to applicable tax authorities. This provision does not apply to EduTrust’s income, franchise and employment taxes or any taxes for which Customer is exempt provided Customer has furnished EduTrust with a valid tax exemption certificate. To the extent a taxing authority changes their position or taxing policy requiring EduTrust to collect a Tax or levy from Customer, EduTrust will add the Tax or levy to the Customer invoice.
  7. Confidentiality.
    1. Scope of Confidentiality. Each party agrees that all code, inventions, know-how, or business, technical, and financial information disclosed to such party (“Receiving Party”) by the disclosing party (“Disclosing Party”), constitute the confidential information of the Disclosing Party (“Confidential Information”), provided that it is either identified as confidential at the time of disclosure, or should be reasonably known by the Receiving Party to be confidential due to the nature of the information disclosed. Personal Data is considered Confidential Information. Confidential Information will not, however, include any information that: (1) was publicly known and made generally available in the public domain prior to the time of disclosure by the Disclosing Party, (2) becomes publicly known and made generally available after disclosure by the Disclosing Party to the Receiving Party through no action or inaction of the Receiving Party, (3) is already in the possession of the Receiving Party at the time of disclosure by the Discloser, (4) is obtained by the Receiving Party from a third party without a known breach of the third party’s obligations of confidentiality, or (5) is independently developed by the Receiving Party without use of or reference to the Confidential Information. The Receiving Party may disclose the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information if required by law so long as the Receiving Party gives the Disclosing Party prompt written notice of the requirement prior to the disclosure and assistance in obtaining an order protecting the information from public disclosure.
    2. Non-Use and Non-Disclosure. Except as expressly authorized herein or as necessary to perform its obligations hereunder, the Receiving Party agrees to: (1) not disclose any Confidential Information to third parties, and (2) not use Confidential Information for any purpose other than as necessary to exercise its rights or perform its obligations hereunder.
    3. Processing of Personal Data. Notwithstanding the provisions of this section, Customer agrees that EduTrust may process Personal Data as necessary for: (1) storage and processing in accordance with the Agreement and applicable Order Form(s); (2) processing initiated by Users in their use of the Services; and (3) processing to comply with other documented reasonable instructions provided by User (e.g. via email or support tickets) where such instructions are consistent with the terms of the Agreement. To the extent that Customer is subject to a local data privacy law (including but not limited to the General Data Protection Regulation or the California Consumer Privacy Act), then Customer agrees to request from EduTrust a data protection agreement prior to providing any Personal Data to EduTrust.
  8. Term and Termination.
    1. Duration of Term. This Agreement will commence on the Effective Date, and will continue until all Order Forms hereunder have expired or have been terminated. The duration of the Services will be specified in each applicable Order Form. Unless otherwise specified in an applicable Order Form, and with the exception of Customers on the EduTrust Business Team plan that have disabled auto-renewal within the Services, Order Forms will renew automatically, unless terminated by either party by giving at least 30 days written notice prior to the end of the then-current term.
    2. Termination for Material Breach. Either party may terminate this Agreement and any applicable Order Forms in the event that the other party materially breaches this Agreement, by providing 30 days written notice, unless such breach is cured during such 30 day notice period. In the event that Customer terminates this Agreement or any Order Form due to material breach by EduTrust, then Customer will be entitled to receive a pro-rated refund for Services not rendered past the termination date. Sections 5-11 and 15-18, as well as any accrued rights to payment, will survive any termination or expiration of the Agreement.
  9. WARRANTY DISCLAIMER. EXCEPT AS OTHERWISE AGREED UPON BY THE PARTIES, EDUTRUST PROVIDES THE SERVICES AS-IS AND DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES RELATING TO THE SERVICES AND ANY THIRD PARTY SYSTEMS OR PLATFORMS ACCESSIBLE THROUGH THE SERVICES, EXPRESS, OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO, ANY WARRANTIES RELATING TO MERCHANTABILITY, ACCURACY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, NON-INFRINGEMENT, OR AVAILABILITY.
  10. Limitation of Liabilities.
    1. NEITHER PARTY WILL BE LIABLE WITH RESPECT TO ANY SUBJECT MATTER OF THIS AGREEMENT OR RELATED TERMS AND CONDITIONS UNDER ANY THEORY OF CONTRACT, NEGLIGENCE, STRICT LIABILITY, OR OTHER THEORY FOR: (1) ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, OR (2) ANY AMOUNTS IN EXCESS OF THE FEES PAID OR PAYABLE BY CUSTOMER TO EDUTRUST IN THE 12 MONTHS PRIOR TO THE DATE THE RELEVANT CLAIM AROSE.
    2. Exceptions to Limitation of Liability. Notwithstanding the limitation of liability set forth above: (1) Customer’s liability arising from its violation of Section 3 of this Agreement, and either party’s liability arising from the indemnification provisions of this Agreement, will not be limited, and (2) Each party’s liability arising from breach of its confidentiality obligations hereunder will be limited to three times the amount of Fees paid or payable by Customer to EduTrust in the 12 months prior to the date a claim arose.
  11. Indemnification.
    1. EduTrust’s Indemnification Obligations. EduTrust agrees to defend Customer for all third party claims arising from an allegation that Customer’s use of the Services as permitted under this Agreement infringes upon a third party’s intellectual property rights (“Claim Against Customer”), and indemnify Customer from any damages, reasonable attorney fees, and costs incurred by Customer as a result of a Claim Against Customer. In the event that the Services become subject to a third-party intellectual property claim, or EduTrust believes that the Services will become subject to such a claim, then EduTrust may elect to: (1) modify the Services so that they are no longer allegedly infringing, (2) obtain a license for Customer’s continued use of the Services, or (3) terminate this Agreement or any applicable Order Forms, and provide Customer a pro-rated refund for Services not rendered past the termination date. This section states EduTrust’s sole liability to the Customer with respect to a claim that any part of the Services infringes the intellectual property rights of a third party.
    2. Customer’s Indemnification Obligations. Customer agrees to defend EduTrust for all third-party claims arising from Customer’s violations of Sections 3(a) i. and ii., and 3(b) of this Agreement (“Claim Against EduTrust”), and indemnify EduTrust from any damages, reasonable attorney fees, and costs incurred by EduTrust as a result of a Claim Against EduTrust.
    3. Requirements for Indemnification. In order for the indemnification obligations hereunder to apply, the party seeking indemnification must: (1) promptly tender a claim for indemnification, (2) allow the indemnifying party sole control of the defense or settlement of the underlying claim, and (3) reasonably assist with any defense or settlement of the underlying claim at the indemnifying party’s request and expense.
  12. Anti-Corruption. Neither party has received or been offered any illegal or improper bribe, kickback, payment, gift, or thing of value from an employee or agent of the other party in connection with this Agreement. Reasonable gifts and entertainment provided in the ordinary course of business do not violate the above restriction. Upon learning of any violation of this restriction, Customer agrees to promptly notify EduTrust’s legal department, by emailing legal@EduTrust.com.
  13. Publicity. Customer grants EduTrust the right to use Customer’s company name and logo as a reference for marketing or promotional purposes on EduTrust’s website and in other promotional materials.
  14. Force Majeure. Neither party will be liable for any failure or delay in the performance of its obligations hereunder to the extent caused by a condition that is beyond a party’s reasonable control, including but not limited to natural disaster, civil disturbance, acts of terrorism or war, labor conditions, failure by a third party hosting provider or utility provider, governmental actions, interruption or failure of the Internet or any utility service, or denial of service attacks.
  15. Severability. If any provision of this Agreement is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be contrary to law, the provision shall be deemed null and void, and the remaining provisions of this Agreement shall remain in effect.
  16. Governing Law Venue, and Attorney’s Fees. This Agreement and any disputes arising under it will be governed by the laws of the State of California without regard to its conflict of laws provisions, and each party consents to the personal jurisdiction and venue of the state or federal courts located in San Francisco, California. In the event of any dispute between the parties regarding the terms of this Agreement, the party prevailing in such dispute shall be entitled to collect from the other party all costs incurred in such dispute, including reasonable attorneys’ fees.
  17. Entire Agreement. This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between the parties pertaining to the subject matter hereof and supersedes all prior or contemporaneous oral or written communications, proposals, and representations with respect to its subject matter. This Agreement and any mutually executed Order Forms shall apply in lieu of the terms or conditions in any purchase order or other documentation that Customer provides, and all such terms and conditions are null and void and superseded by this Agreement and any mutually executed Order Forms. This Agreement, or any part thereof, may be modified by EduTrust at any time, including the addition or deletion of terms at any time, and such modifications, additions or deletions will be effective immediately upon posting.
  18. Contracting Party, Governing Law, and Currency for Indian Customers. As of June 1, 2020, if Customer is located in India, then Customer is contracting with EduTrust India LLP under this Agreement. In such case, notwithstanding Section 17 above, this Agreement and any disputes arising under it will be governed by the laws of India, and both parties consent to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of courts in Delhi, India for all disputes arising out of this Agreement. In addition, if Customer is located in India, notwithstanding Section 17 above, then any dispute, claim, or any non-payment (any of which shall be treated as a dispute) whether present or future, whatsoever between the parties under, arising out of, relating to or in connection with this Agreement shall be settled by mandatory arbitration in accordance with the provisions of the Arbitration and Conciliation Act, 1996 by a sole arbitrator mutually appointed by the parties and both parties consent to such mandatory arbitration. Either party may serve the other party with a notice in writing specifying the existence and nature of the dispute and the intention to refer the dispute to arbitration. If the parties are unable to agree on a sole arbitrator within 30 days of such notice, each Party shall appoint an arbitrator, and the arbitrators so appointed shall jointly appoint the third arbitrator.

EduTrust Business Privacy Statement

This EduTrust Business Privacy Statement was updated on December 1, 2021.

In the course of providing EduTrust Business and CorpU (“UB”) services and related services to its corporate, non-profit organization, and governmental customers (“Customers”), EduTrust will receive and have access to personal data of individual users to whom customers grant access (“Users”). For the purposes of this privacy statement, Customers are data controllers and EduTrust is a data processor. EduTrust’s processing of User data and the security measures implemented to protect such data are detailed in and governed by a written agreement between EduTrust and each of its Customers.

As a data processor, EduTrust will access, store and use the personal data of individual Users solely for the purpose of providing the UB services to its Customers and will process the data as instructed by its Customers.

As data controllers, Customers decide which of their employees or other authorized personnel are given access to the UB services. They do this by designating one or more UB account administrators or group administrators (“Administrator”) who act on behalf of the Customer and have the ability to customize the Customer account, manage individual User accounts, access the UB Insights tool and related reporting features, access the UB Administrator tools, and populate the Customer account with Customer-provided content. Customers are solely responsible for establishing policies for and ensuring compliance with all applicable laws and regulations, relating to the collection of personal information relating to individual Users selected by Customers for accessing the UB services. EduTrust has no direct relationship with individual Users, who should contact Customers (their employer) for assistance with any requests or questions relating to the processing of their personal information.

For avoidance of doubt, this Privacy Statement does not apply to:

  1. any processing of data for the purpose of marketing the UB service to enterprise and corporate prospects;
  2. persons participating in a CorpU program as an individual (CorpU Open); and
  3. any other offerings available at EduTrust.com separate from the UB services, for which the EduTrust Privacy Policy is applicable. A User may already have an account with EduTrust to access EduTrust’s marketplace educational content, and data processed as a result of the use of the EduTrust marketplace from a User account is governed by the EduTrust Privacy Policy.

In the event where EduTrust makes any material changes to the manner in which it processes User data to provide its services to Customers, it will notify Customers.

EduTrust Business Privacy Statement

  1. Information about Users collected and stored by EduTrust
  2. Purpose of User Data Processing and Retention Period
  3. Cookies and other Tracking Technologies
  4. Sharing User Information
  5. Processing of User Data outside of the EEA
  6. Jurisdiction-Specific Information
  7. General

1. Information about Users collected and stored by EduTrust

  1. When a User is given access to the UB services by the Administrator, a User may set up an individual User account and EduTrust will collect information provided by the User or the Administrator. The Customer can customize the type of data requested to create an account, which may include the following:
    • first name, last name, and email address required
    • photo, areas of interest, job skills, goals, and role (optionally provided by User or Customer)
    • other personal data, as allowed by the Customer

A unique identifying number is assigned by EduTrust upon the creation of a User account.

  1. Individual User account information may be set to private or public, as selected by Users. If set to public, the information is searchable via search engines and viewable by anyone, including by other Users and the Customer.
  2. Administrators may assign a User to a group membership.
  3. Customers may select to integrate with UB a Single Sign On (SSO) identity provider to enable Users to log in to UB User accounts without the need to disclose passwords to EduTrust. Users may log in by providing their individual SSO credentials to the SSO identity provider, which will authenticate them and allow or deny access to the Customer account. SSO identity providers share with EduTrust a unique cookie ID and authentication “token” information to recognize the User as an authorized user of Customer.
  4. At the option of the Customer, the UB service may enable Administrators and Users to interact with others, including with instructors, teaching assistants, other students, and the Customer, by posting reviews about educational content, sending messages to or chatting with others, posting questions or answers, or posting other content. Posted content is stored by EduTrust and may be publicly available or viewable by others, including Administrators, Users, or instructors and teaching assistants, depending on where the content is posted.
  5. At the option of the Customer, Administrators may enable the ability to “Share to Slack.” This optional feature allows Users to manually or automatically post a message to the Customer’s own instance of the Slack messaging service. To enable this optional functionality, Customer’s Slack administrators must grant EduTrust the ability to read the full list of public channels, private channels, and users in the Customer’s Slack instance. These lists may include individuals in Customer’s Slack instance who are not UB Users. Slack user lists and channels are briefly cached before being automatically purged from EduTrust’s systems.
  6. EduTrust stores information relating to the activities of Users as they use and interact with the UB services, such as content viewed, searched for, or accessed (and information relating to that content); interactions with instructors, teaching assistants, Administrators, and other Users; as well as answers, essays, and other items submitted by Users to satisfy the educational content requirements. This information is linked to a User’s unique account ID and is shared with Customers via the Customer Account reporting tools or upon request of the Customer.
  7. The UB service enables Users to contact the EduTrust Support Team for assistance or to report a problem, concern, potential abuse or other issues regarding the UB services or other users. EduTrust may collect and store the User’s name, email address, location, operating system, IP address as well as the User’s activity on the EduTrust platform and communications with the EduTrust help desk team. EduTrust may request additional information from Users in order to resolve any issue reported by a User or by another user.
  8. When a User uses the UB services, EduTrust collects and stores certain information by automated means: (a) technical information about the User’s computer or wireless device, such as IP address, operating system type and version, unique device ID, browser, browser language, domain, and other operating systems or platform information. This information is collected through the use of server log files and tracking technologies, such as: (i) cookies, which are small files that websites send to a computer or wireless device to uniquely identify a browser or mobile device or to store information in a browser setting; and (ii) other tracking technologies (see below for more detailed information).
  9. IP addresses received from browsers or devices of Users may be used to determine the approximate location of Users.
  10. If a Customer makes purchases via credit card, EduTrust collects certain data about the purchase (such as name and ZIP code) as necessary to process the order. Customers must provide certain payment and billing data directly to EduTrust’s payment processing partners, including name, credit card information, billing address, and ZIP code. EduTrust may also receive limited information, like the fact that Customers have a new card and the last four digits of that card, from payment service providers to facilitate payments. For security, EduTrust does not collect or store sensitive cardholder data, such as full credit card numbers or card authentication data.

2. Purpose of User Data Processing and Retention Period

EduTrust processes the information collected about Users and Administrators for the purpose of providing the UB services to its Customers, specifically:

  • Providing, administering, and facilitating access to the UB services, for Customers and Users, and managing Customer or User account preferences
  • Fulfilling Customer’s instructions with respect to personal data of Users
  • Displaying and sending via email notifications to Users for:
    • Responding to User questions or concerns
    • Making notifications to Users at the request of the Customer
    • Sending Users administrative messages and information, including confirmation of account creation, enrollment and progress in courses and related content, and notifications of responses from instructors to User questions
    • Providing information to Users about available content, new UB service features, and personalized content recommendations, which Users can opt out of at any time
    • Sending push notifications to User wireless devices to provide updates and other relevant messages, which can be managed from the “options” or “settings” page in the mobile application.
  • Enabling communications among Users and instructors or teaching assistants
  • Incorporating feedback into and improving the UB services
  • Resolving User support requests or claims

If we are not able to collect and process your personal information, we may be unable to provide some or all of the UB Services to you.

Email Preferences

Users can individually opt out of receiving non-transactional emails by: (i) following the unsubscribe instructions provided in the email communication; or (ii) managing User account email preferences. A Customer can also instruct EduTrust to configure email preference settings for all Users of a Customer.

Retention of Personal Data

EduTrust will retain the data of Users for as long as instructed by the Customer and no longer than required to serve the purposes of processing. EduTrust will delete certain or all personal data relating to Users upon request of the Customer. EduTrust may retain aggregated or anonymized data as set forth below.

Use of aggregated data

In addition, User data is aggregated with other EduTrust marketplace user data to enable EduTrust to improve its products and services and develop new products and services, including:

  • Reviewing and analyzing User browser and wireless device technical information
  • Reviewing user activity across UB and the EduTrust marketplace (for example, EduTrust analyzes trends and User traffic and usage information to identify popular content)
  • Facilitating the technical functioning of the UB services and EduTrust marketplace, including to troubleshoot and resolve issues, secure the UB services, and prevent fraud and abuse
  • Developing a personalized content recommendation engine

When User data is used for the above purposes, it is aggregated and/or anonymized so that no personal data of Users is processed.

3. Cookies and other Tracking Technologies

Like many online platforms, EduTrust and its analytics vendors use server log files and automated data collection tools, such as browser cookies, pixel tags, scripts, and web beacons. These tools are used for analytics purposes to enable EduTrust to understand how Users interact with the UB services. EduTrust and its analytics vendors may tie the information gathered by these means to the unique account ID of Users.

Cookies are small text files placed onto a computer or device while browsing the Internet. Cookies are used to collect, store, and share bits of information about User activities. EduTrust uses both session cookies and persistent cookies.

  • A session cookie is used to identify a particular visit to the UB services and collect information about interaction with the UB service. These cookies expire after a short time, or when the User closes their web browser after using the UB service. EduTrust uses these cookies to identify a User during a single browsing session, such as when you log into the UB services. This helps EduTrust improve the UB service as well as improve the Users’ browsing experience.
  • A persistent cookie will remain on a User’s device for a set period of time specified in the cookie. EduTrust uses these cookies to identify and recognize a specific User over a longer period of time. They allow EduTrust to:
    1. analyze the usage of the UB services (e.g. what links Users click on) in order to improve our UB offering,
    2. test different versions of the UB services to see which particular features or content Users prefer to optimize the UB services
    3. provide a more personalized experience to Users with more relevant and recommended content and
    4. allow Users to more easily log in to use the UB services. Persistent cookies include:
      • preferences cookies to remember information about a User’s browser and settings preferences, such as preferred language. Preference cookies make User experience more functional and customized
      • authentication and security cookies to enable a User to log in or stay logged in and access the UB service, to protect User accounts against fraudulent log-ins by others, and help detect, fight, and protect against abuse or unauthorized usage of User accounts.
      • functional cookies to make the experience of using the UB service better, like remembering the sound volume level selected by the User.

EduTrust uses tracking technology to: (i) determine if a certain page was visited (e.g. the landing page of an advertisement for UB services that is displayed on third party sites) or whether an email sent by EduTrust was opened or clicked on by a User; and (ii) to customize the learning experience of individual Users by recommending specific courses and other content.

Cookie list

EduTrust will retain the data of Users for as long as instructed by the Customer. EduTrust will delete certain or all personal data relating to Users upon request of the Customer. EduTrust may retain aggregated or anonymized data as set forth below.

User Preferences with respect to cookies and other tracking technologies

Users can set their web browser to notify them about the placement of new cookies, limit the type of cookies or reject cookies altogether; if enabled, a User may not be able to use some or all of the features of the UB services (for example, may not be able to log in). General information about cookies and how to disable them can be found at https://cookiepedia.co.uk/all-about-cookies.

Various browsers may offer their own management tools for removing HTML5 LSOs.

Most modern web browsers give you the option to send a Do Not Track signal to the websites you visit, indicating that you do not wish to be tracked. However, there is no accepted standard for how a website should respond to this signal, and we do not take any action in response to this signal. Instead, in addition to publicly available third-party tools, we offer you the choices described in this policy to manage the collection and use of information about you.

4. Sharing User Information

In order to provide the UB services to its Customers, EduTrust shares data regarding Users with a number of third-party service providers. These third parties are contractually required to use User data solely as directed by EduTrust for the purpose of providing services to EduTrust. Administrators of existing Customers are able to access our list of current sub-processors on the left sidebar of this page while logged in to UB.

  • Instructors who upload content on the EduTrust platform, as well as their teaching assistants, may receive names and account profile information of Users (excluding email addresses), to enable them to respond to user questions and feedback.
  • Other service providers of Customer may receive information as instructed by Customer.
  • To perform its services, EduTrust leases servers from data centers and uses cloud hosting services on which certain content and User data relating to UB is hosted.
  • EduTrust’s help center platform vendor hosts and stores all communications between Administrators or Users and the EduTrust support team. The help center vendor is contractually required to store and process User related data solely as directed by EduTrust for the purpose of providing services to EduTrust. EduTrust also partners with a chat messaging vendor to provide support to Users and Administrators, to collect feedback, and to display in-app messages for feature announcements or onboarding new users.
  • EduTrust shares User information with third-party companies that perform email services to enable EduTrust to send email communications to Users and to manage email preference settings of Users.
  • EduTrust shares User information with third-party companies that perform data analysis services to enable EduTrust to better understand how Users use the UB service. These companies include Chartio, Google Analytics and Mixpanel. To prevent Google Analytics from collecting information for analytics, a User may install the Google Analytics Opt-Out Browser by clicking here, and may also use Mixpanel’s opt-out by clicking here.
  • For CorpU users, certain features like chat rooms, message boards, news groups, or other public forums are available and are publicly visible to other participants, so confidential or proprietary information should not be shared through these features.

Any other sharing of User data is subject to the consent and instructions of Customer.

5. Processing of User Data outside of the EEA

Our servers and subprocessors are located in the United States. In order to provide the Services to you, we transfer and process your data there. If personal data processed by EduTrust originates from a User or Administrator in the EEA, EduTrust will ensure that such processing will only take place if: (a) the non-EEA country in question ensures an adequate level of data protection; (b) the transfer is made pursuant to a Data Processing Agreement (“DPA”) executed between EduTrust and the Customer and subject to the standard contractual clauses designed to facilitate transfers of personal data from the EEA to all third countries that have been adopted by the European Commission (known as the, “Model Clauses”), which have been incorporated into the DPA.

6. Jurisdiction-Specific Information

Australia. If you are located in Australia, you may contact our privacy team at privacy@EduTrust.com in order to:

  • request access to or seek correction of your personal information
  • make a complaint about a breach of the Australian Privacy Principles which will be investigated and responded to within 30 days.

7. General

Translation for Convenience Purposes Only. In the event that Customer has been provided a translated version of the EduTrust Business Privacy Statement in a language other than English, that translation is provided for convenience purposes only. The English version of the UB Privacy Statement provided at https://www.EduTrust.com/terms/ub-privacy/ is controlling, and in the event of a conflict between the English version of this Privacy Statement and any translated version, the English version will prevail.

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

3. Trust & Safety

3.1 Trust & Safety Policies

You agree to abide by EduTrust’s Trust & Safety policiesRestricted Topics policy, and other content quality standards or policies prescribed by EduTrust from time to time. You should check these policies periodically to ensure that you comply with any updates to them. You understand that your use of the Services is subject to EduTrust’s approval, which we may grant or deny at our sole discretion.

We reserve the right to remove content, suspend payouts, and/or ban instructors for any reason at any time, without prior notice, including in cases where:

  • an instructor or content does not comply with our policies or legal terms (including the Terms of Use);
  • content falls below our quality standards or has a negative impact on the student experience;
  • an instructor engages in behavior that might reflect unfavorably on EduTrust or bring EduTrust into public disrepute, contempt, scandal, or ridicule;
  • an instructor engages the services of a marketer or other business partner who violates EduTrust’s policies;
  • an instructor uses the Services in a way that constitutes unfair competition, such as promotion of their off-site business in a way that violates EduTrust’s policies; or
  • as determined by EduTrust in its sole discretion.

3.2 Co-Instructors and Teaching Assistants

The EduTrust platform allows you to add other users as co-instructors or teaching assistants for Submitted Content that you manage, and you are required to comply with our Co-Instructor Relationship Rules and Guidelines when taking such actions. By adding a co-instructor or teaching assistant, you understand that you are authorizing them to take certain actions that affect your EduTrust account and Submitted Content. Violations of EduTrust’s terms and policies by your co-instructor or teaching assistant may also impact your EduTrust account and Submitted Content. EduTrust 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 EduTrust platform, and that you won’t solicit additional personal data or store students’ personal data outside the EduTrust platform. You agree to indemnify EduTrust 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 content from unauthorized use. To enable this protection, you hereby appoint EduTrust and our anti-piracy vendors as your agents for the purpose of enforcing copyrights for each of your content, through notice and takedown processes (under applicable copyright laws like the Digital Millennium Copyright Act) and for other efforts to enforce those rights. You grant EduTrust and our anti-piracy vendors primary authority to file notices on your behalf to enforce your copyright interests.

You agree that EduTrust and our anti-piracy vendors will retain the above rights unless you revoke them by sending an email to piracy@EduTrust.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 Submitted Content available for purchase on EduTrust, you will be prompted to select a base price (“Base Price“) for your Submitted Content from a list of available price tiers. Alternatively, you may choose to offer your Submitted Content for free. As a 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 Submitted Content for the Base Price or the closest local or mobile app equivalent (as detailed below). If you opt to participate in a Promotional Program, we may set a different discounted price or list price for your Submitted Content as described in the Promotions Policy.

When a student purchases using a foreign currency, we will convert the relevant Base Price or Promotional Program price into the student’s applicable currency using a system-wide foreign currency conversion rate set by EduTrust 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. The Price Tier Matrix and additional information on EduTrust’s pricing tiers are available here.

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 Submitted Content for free with our employees, with selected partners, and in cases where we need to restore access to accounts who have previously purchased your Submitted Content. You understand that you will not receive compensation in these cases.

4.2 Transaction Taxes

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

EduTrust 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 EduTrust by finding the optimal price point for your Submitted Content and offering them through subscriptions collections.

There is no up-front cost to participate in these programs, and you can modify your participation status at any time, though changes you make will not apply to currently active campaigns and certain programs may have additional requirements on termination.

5. Payments

5.1 Revenue Share

When a student purchases your Submitted Content, we calculate the gross amount of the sale as the amount actually received by EduTrust from the student (“Gross Amount“). From this, we subtract any Transaction Taxes, any mobile platform fees applied to mobile provider checkout sales, a 3% service and processing fee (except in Japan, where we subtract a 4% fee) for any non-mobile provider checkout sales, and any amounts paid to third parties in connection with the Promotional Programs to calculate the net amount of the sale (“Net Amount“).

If you have not opted into any of EduTrust’s optional Promotional Programs, and except for sales through instructor-generated coupon codes or course referral links as described below, your revenue share will be 37% 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.

EduTrust makes all instructor payments in U.S. dollars (USD) regardless of the currency with which the sale was made. EduTrust is not responsible for your foreign currency conversion fees, wiring fees, or any other processing fees that you may incur. Your revenue report will show the sales price (in local currency) and your converted revenue amount (in USD).

5.2 Instructor Coupons and Course Referral Links

The EduTrust platform allows you to generate coupon codes and referral links to offer certain items of your Submitted Content to students at a discount, at EduTrust’s current price, or for free, as permitted within the Services. These coupon codes and referral links are subject to limits, and you may not sell them on third-party websites or otherwise offer them in exchange for compensation. Additional information and restrictions on these coupon codes and referral links are outlined in our Trust & Safety policies.

Where a student applies your coupon code or referral link at checkout, your revenue share will be 97% of the Net Amount less any applicable deductions, such as student refunds.

5.3 Receiving Payments

For us to pay you in a timely manner, you must own a PayPal, Payoneer, or U.S. bank account (for U.S. residents only) 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.

5.4 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 Submitted Content.

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 Submitted Content available on EduTrust or your participation on EduTrust; 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 Submitted Content 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. Deleting Your Account

Instructions on how to delete your instructor account are available here. We’ll use commercially reasonable efforts to make any remaining scheduled payments that are owed to you before deleting your account. You understand that if students have previously enrolled in your Submitted Content, your name and that Submitted Content may remain accessible to those students after your account is deleted.

    1. For example, and for illustrative purposes only: A User’s participation in a three-week Program, regardless of whether the Program is conducted over three consecutive weeks or three weeks spread over a longer duration, will require three Credits.
    2. For example, and for illustrative purposes only: A User’s enrollment in a three-week Program will require three Credits. If that User does not participate in the entirety of the Program, all three Credits will still be consumed and may not be allocated toward other Programs.
  5. Credit Limitations.Credits will be designated as either Open Credits or Private Credits. Open Credits and Private Credits are priced separately. Open Credits may only be used to enroll in Open Programs, and may not be used to enroll in Private Programs. Private Credits may only be used to enroll in Private Programs, and may not be used to enroll in Open Programs. Open Credits may not be converted into Private Credits, nor vice versa.
  6. Expiration of Credits.All Credits must be used within each one-year period within the subscription period specified on the relevant Order Form. All Credits unused at the end of each such one-year period will expire, and will no longer be usable thereafter, including in subsequent years of the subscription and in renewal terms.
    1. For example, and for illustrative purposes only: If Customer purchases 100 credits for a one-year subscription, any unused Credits at the end of the one-year subscription period will expire.
    2. For example, and for illustrative purposes only: If Customer purchases 100 Credits for a three-year subscription, then any unused credits at the end of the first year of Customer’s subscription will expire, and will not roll over to the second or third years of Customer’s subscription.

  1. Customer consents and agrees that EduTrust Business Pro may be provided through a third-party provider. EduTrust Business Pro allows Customer and its Users to access certain third-party platforms, including, as available, Amazon Web Services (“Cloud Platforms”).

EduTrust Credits Program Terms & Conditions

The EduTrust credits program (“Program”) is offered to anyone with a EduTrust account at the sole discretion of EduTrust, Inc. Participation in the Program is automatic. You will earn EduTrust credits (“Credits”) any time you complete certain activities that are eligible for receiving Credits (each an “Eligible Activity”). For example, EduTrust may designate enrolling in a certain course as an Eligible Activity; as soon as you enroll in that course you will receive the Credits allocated for that Eligible Activity. Remember, to earn the Credits the activity must be an Eligible Activity and you must complete all steps associated with the Eligible Activity. There are a few additional rules and terms that apply to the Program:

  • The Program is void if prohibited by law.
  • EduTrust may change or terminate the Program at any time, with or without notice to you. However, any Credits earned prior to termination shall continue to be available until the expire.
  • If the Eligible Activity has conditions – such as an expiration date, or restrictions on how Credits can be used – you must comply with those conditions.
  • If you try to hack, tamper or otherwise “game” the Program, you lose all Credits and may be barred from the Program or from the EduTrust site.
  • Credits are automatically applied to courses and other products and services you order through the EduTrust site (subject to any restrictions). You do not have the ability to select how the Credits are applied.
  • If you receive a permitted refund for a course or product or service that was ordered using Credits, the refund will be in Credits to your account for the appropriate amount. The original expiration date for the refunded Credits will still apply.
  • Credits have no cash value and may not be traded or redeemed for cash, or assigned, sold or transferred to anyone else. However, if you purchase a course, product or service for someone else through your account your Credits will be applied to that purchase.
  • If taxes are owed on your Credits or their use or your participation in the Program, you are responsible for their calculation and payment.

If you have any questions about the Program, your account, or EduTrust, please contact us.

 

Promotions Policy

This Promotions Policy was last updated on 3rd May 2021. 

This Promotions Policy (“Policy”) includes information about methods that EduTrust instructors can use to promote their content, including instructor coupons, course referral links, and EduTrust’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.

You can find translated versions of this Policy by following our Help Center language instructions. The following translations are also available for languages not supported by the Help Center:

Any version of this Policy 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.

  1. How the Promotional Programs Work

EduTrust offers premium instructors the opportunity to participate in Promotional Programs, which you can opt into through the Promotional Agreements page of your instructor settings or by a written agreement (including by email) between you and EduTrust for certain programs, as detailed below. The specific programs offered may change from time to time. 

Not all deals or programs will be available in all geographic territories or for all EduTrust content. EduTrust has sole discretion to determine which content to offer as part of the Promotional Programs and to set or update sale prices. EduTrust may remove any of your content 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. EduTrust does not guarantee any minimum level of success in connection with the Promotional Programs.

  1. EduTrust Deals Program

The EduTrust Deals Program helps increase your revenue potential by enabling EduTrust to offer your content at a compelling discount as part of targeted promotions, as well as to optimize your list price. The Deals Program allows EduTrust to offer your content to students at a discounted price or list price no lower than $9.99 USD (or local equivalent), except in Australia, Brazil, India, Indonesia, Mexico, South Africa, and Turkey and sales to EduTrust’s resellers or distributors, where the price may be lower. We reserve the right to change base price tier options from time to time. Additional information on EduTrust’s pricing is available here

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

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

You can opt out of the Deals Program at any time. However, your content 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.

  1. EduTrust Business Program

Premium instructors may also participate in our subscription program (“EduTrust Business Program”), subject to the additional terms in this section. The EduTrust Business Program consists of EduTrust’s subscription-based content collections available to individual consumers and business customers, including private, public, non-profit, and government organizations (“Subscription Customers”), featuring a select group of EduTrust’s top content for professional and personal development skills. 

By opting into the EduTrust Business Program, you agree to make all of your content eligible for inclusion in EduTrust’s subscription-based content collections. We may elect whether to select your content for inclusion in any collection, including any add-on, variation, or subset of that collection, and may change the selection from time to time at our sole discretion.

Because the collections are subscription-based, we may select sale prices and offer free trials at our discretion. While your content is included in a collection, you may not unpublish that content or make it private. 

If you’ve agreed to provide any Assessment Questions (as defined below), you are also subject to the additional terms in Section 4 (Assessments).

Instructors who have previously opted into the “EduTrust Subscription Program” are subject to the terms of this section.  

3.1 Revenue Share

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

  1. Each month, EduTrust will calculate the total monthly subscription fees paid to EduTrust on behalf of all current Subscription Customers of such collection minus any applicable Transaction Taxes, foreign exchange fees, and third-party fees, such as reseller, promotion, distribution, or payment processing fees.
  2. Twenty-five percent (25%) of this amount will be allocated to instructors participating in such collection (“Instructor Revenue Pool“) as further described below.
  3. Each month, EduTrust will calculate the total minutes of content (including course videos, quizzes, practice tests, and coding exercises) in such collection consumed by all current Subscription Customers through their subscription to such collection (“Total Minutes Consumed“). For clarity, the Total Minutes Consumed does not include any consumption by access through a free trial.
  4. Each month, EduTrust will also calculate how many of the Total Minutes Consumed are attributable to each of your items of content that was included in such collection that month (“Your Content Minutes“).
  5. To calculate your revenue share each month, EduTrust will divide the Instructor Revenue Pool by the Total Minutes Consumed, then multiply that per-minute amount by Your Content Minutes.

As EduTrust makes additional types of content (such as assessments and labs) available through the collections, we may update subsection (3) above to specify additional types of content that will be included in the calculations to determine the Total Minutes Consumed and Your Content Minutes.

3.2 Exclusivity

Except as otherwise provided for Assessment Questions below, once your content is included in a collection, you agree that you will not begin to offer any on-demand content, such as pre-recorded courses, that directly compete with or injure the sales of that content 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 EduTrust Business Program, you agree that this exclusivity provision will remain in place until we remove your content from all collections.

3.3 Termination

You can choose to terminate your participation in the EduTrust Business Program at any time by emailing instructorsupport@EduTrust.com. EduTrust will remove your content from the collections within 12 months of termination and will continue to pay you revenue share based on the then-current rates until your content is removed from the relevant collection. 

Once your content is removed for any reason from a collection, Subscription Customers will no longer be able to enroll in your content and you will no longer earn revenue share from that collection. However, any individual end user who previously enrolled in your content will continue to be able to access that content for as long as they remain subscribed to the relevant collection.

  1. Assessments

EduTrust’s assessments (“Assessments”) consist of question and answer pairs with explanations (each, an “Assessment Question”) to measure proficiency and learning across certain topics, skills, domains, or occupations. Assessments are made available by EduTrust as a standalone content type, separate from courses. For clarity, practice tests, quizzes, coding exercises, and labs are not considered Assessments or Assessment Questions. 

By providing an Assessment Question, as mutually agreed between us in writing (including by email), you agree to the terms in this section.

We may elect whether to select your Assessment Question for inclusion on EduTrust.com or in the EduTrust Business Program, and may change that selection from time to time and at our sole discretion. If your Assessment Question is included in the EduTrust Business Program, then you will be subject to the terms relevant to that program above. 

You agree that your Assessment Questions will comply with all criteria as may be agreed in writing (including by email) by you and EduTrust, such as the topic, format, domain, difficulty level, and quantity.

By providing your Assessment Question, you grant EduTrust an exclusive license to use, copy, reproduce, distribute, display, publish, and prepare derivative works of your Assessment Question. You agree that you will not make your Assessment Question available to others (including through your own site or platform) or license or permit any third party to do so.

You may choose to terminate your license of an Assessment Question at any time by emailing instructorsupport@EduTrust.com. EduTrust will remove your Assessment Question from the Services within 12 months of termination and will continue to pay you any relevant revenue share based on the then-current rates until your Assessment Question is removed from the relevant portion of the Services.  

  1. 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.
