The instructor must immediately inform Invention.academy if any of its declarations, warranties or engagements contained in these Conditions become inaccurate or false.

The instructor grants Invention.academy a non-exclusive, royalty-free, worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable and transferable license that is fully sublicensable, as well as the right to use, modify, reproduce, sublicense, display, distribute, transmit and publish the Content submitted through the Services. The instructor acknowledges that any use of the Content submitted by the instructor as contemplated in these Terms and Conditions is at the sole discretion of Invention.academy and Invention.academy may decide not to use the Content submitted by the instructor.

The instructor agrees that we may record all or part of the courses (including voice chat communications) for quality control purposes and for the purpose of providing, marketing, promoting, demonstrating or operating the site and products. You hereby grant Invention.academy permission to use Your name, image, identity or voice to offer, deliver, market, promote, demonstrate and sell the Services, products, courses, content of Invention.academy and submitted content, and waive all rights of confidentiality, publicity or any other similar rights relating thereto, to the extent permitted by applicable law.

An instructor may not remove course content from the Invention.academy platform at any time if students have registered or purchased the course online. Instructors who remove any course content from the platform will be liable to Invention.academy for the cost of refunds granted to students who have purchased the course, plus an additional 10% fee.  


5. PRICING


The instructor is responsible for determining the base price that he will charge students for his course. The instructor agrees to charge only for the content he or she has submitted. It cannot charge separately for course supplements such as downloadable PDF files or any other content or services. Invention.academy will be responsible for invoicing and interaction with students. Invention.academy reserves the right to modify the price at any time. 

The instructor undertakes to give Invention.academy permission to share his course and information about himself and the course with employees of Invention.academy and selected partners, for whom Invention.academy will not receive any remuneration.

To help instructors market their courses, Invention.academy offers marketing programs. If the instructor chooses to participate in one of the Marketing programs offered by Invention.academy, the fees received from Invention.academy will be in accordance with the terms of the marketing program in effect for the sale of his course. However, the instructor is free to unsubscribe from any marketing program at any time. If the instructor unsubscribes from a marketing program, his course will remain subject to sales, campaigns or promotions under the marketing programs that apply to his course and are active at the time of unsubscription until such sales, campaigns or promotions are completed. In addition, the instructor acknowledges and accepts that some sales, campaigns or promotions may be limited in their applicability and that not all sales, campaigns or promotions are necessarily applicable to his course.

The instructor acknowledges that the amounts paid by students for courses sold through marketing programs are not fixed, and Invention.academy has the exclusive authority to determine these amounts and the courses that will be offered through these marketing programs. In addition, Invention.academy does not guarantee any minimum level of success in marketing programs and its selection of courses to be included does not constitute an approval of these courses or their instructors. If the instructor does not wish to participate in certain marketing programs, he/she must inform Invention.academy by e-mail at: instructor@Invention.academy.


6. PAYMENT


If the instructor does not choose to participate in one of Invention.academy's marketing programs, Invention.academy will pay fifty percent (50%) of the net amount received for the course, after deduction of any applicable deductions such as student refunds. If Invention.academy changes the instructor's payment rate, the instructor will be notified thirty (30) days in advance by e-mail or by a prominent notice on the Services. 

In order for the Company to pay the instructor on time, the instructor must have a PayPal account in good standing and keep Invention.academy informed of the correct email address associated with his PayPal account. Payment will be made within forty-five (45) days of the end of the month in which the course fees were received.


7. REFUND


In accordance with section 5 of the Invention.academy Terms of Use, the instructor acknowledges and accepts that students are entitled to a refund. No payments, fees or commissions will be received by the instructors or by Invention.academy for transactions relating to a refund granted in accordance with section 5 of the Invention.academy Terms of Use.

If a student requests a refund for a course after Invention.academy has sent a payment to the instructor for that course, Invention.academy reserves the right to either (1) deduct the amount of that refund from the next payment to be sent to that instructor, or (2) require the instructor to refund any amount refunded to students for that course in the event that no additional payment is due to the instructor or that the payments due by the instructor are not sufficient to pay the amounts refunded to students.


8. COMPENSATION


THE INSTRUCTOR ACCEPTS TO INDEMNIFY ACADEMY INVENTION (invention.academy), ITS PARTNERS, ITS EMPLOYEES AND MANAGERS, AND TO RELEASE THEM FROM ANY LIABILITY FOR ANY DAMAGE, COSTS (INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, SETTLEMENT COSTS), LOSSES, EXPENSES (INCLUDING, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, LAWYER'S FEES) AND LIABILITIES RELATED TO ANY CLAIM OR REQUEST FORMULATED BY ANY PARTY AGAINST INVENTION ACADEMY (invention.academy), ITS PARTNERS, EMPLOYEES AND DIRECTORS ARISING FROM OR RELATED TO THE INSTRUCTOR'S ACTIVITIES OR CONDUCTS ON OR THROUGH THE PLATFORM OR PRODUCTS.


9. CLOSING THE INSTRUCTOR ACCOUNT


The instructor can close his account at any time on Invention.academy.
