Teacher Sessions

All Sessions made available in connection with the Service are made available directly by the relevant Teacher (not Clyver itself) and are redeemable solely for the applicable services of the relevant Teacher. The Teacher, not Clyver, is the provider of the Session and the services and is solely responsible for redeeming any Offer you purchase.

The following terms and conditions apply to all Sessions:

Redemption frequency is determined by Teacher.

Use of Sessions relating to alcoholic beverages is at the sole discretion of the Teacher and is subject to compliance with applicable law.

Sessions cannot be combined with any other Sessions, vouchers, third party certificates, coupons, or promotions, unless otherwise specified by the Teacher.

Session credit cannot be used for taxes, tips or prior balances, unless permitted by the Teacher.

Reproduction, sale or trade of any Session is prohibited.

Any attempted redemption not consistent with these Terms of Use will render the Session void.

Sessions are void to the extent prohibited by law.

If you are a Teacher, you are the holder and issuer of each Session you make in connection with the Service. Teachers agree to accepting a Learner’s purchase of a Session at any time they marked and published as available for Clyver Sessions in their calendar. As a holder and issuer of the Session, the Teacher represents, warrants and agrees that it (i) has obtained all necessary permits, licenses and certifications to hold and issue a Session as required by applicable law, (ii) shall fully honor and redeem all Sessions and (iii) shall be solely and fully responsible for any and all injuries, illnesses, damages, claims, liabilities, losses and costs suffered by or related to a customer concerning any Session or caused in whole or in part the Teacher, as well as for any unclaimed property liability arising from unredeemed Sessions or portions thereof. Each Teacher hereby waives, and releases and will hold harmless Clyver and its officers, directors, employees and agents from, any claim, liabilities, losses, damages, or injury arising from or related to any Session or any act or omission of Teacher in connection with an Session or the services or goods provided in connection therewith and/or as it relates to compliance with applicable unclaimed property and other laws relating to the redemption of Sessions or any portion thereof.

Copyright Complaints: Clyver respects the intellectual property of others, and we ask our users to do the same. If you believe that your work has been copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, or that your intellectual property rights have been otherwise violated, you should notify Clyver of your infringement claim in accordance with the procedure set forth below.

Clyver will process and investigate notices of alleged infringement and will take appropriate actions under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”) and other applicable intellectual property laws with respect to any alleged or actual infringement. A notification of claimed copyright infringement should be emailed to Clyver’s Copyright Agent at notifications@clyver.com (Subject line: “DMCA Takedown Request”).

To be effective, the notification must be in writing and contain the following information:

an electronic or physical signature of the person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright or other intellectual property interest;

a description of the copyrighted work or other intellectual property that you claim has been infringed;

a description of where the material that you claim is infringing is located on the Site or Service, with enough detail that we may find it on the Site or Service;

your address, telephone number, and email address;

a statement by you that you have a good faith belief that the disputed use is not authorized by the copyright or intellectual property owner, its agent, or the law;

a statement by you, made under penalty of perjury, that the above information in your Notice is accurate and that you are the copyright or intellectual property owner or authorized to act on the copyright or intellectual property owner’s behalf.

Counter-Notice: If you believe that your User Content that was removed (or to which access was disabled) is not infringing, or that you have the authorization from the copyright owner, the copyright owner’s agent, or pursuant to the law, to post and use the content in your User Content, you may send a written counter-notice containing the following information to the Copyright Agent:

your physical or electronic signature;

identification of the content that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the content appeared before it was removed or disabled;

a statement that you have a good faith belief that the content was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or a misidentification of the content; and

your name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address, a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the federal court located within the Northern District of California and a statement that you will accept service of process from the person who provided notification of the alleged infringement.

If a counter-notice is received by the Copyright Agent, Clyver will send a copy of the counter-notice to the original complaining party informing that person that it may replace the removed content or cease disabling it in 10 business days. Unless the copyright owner files an action seeking a court order against the content provider, member or user, the removed content may be replaced, or access to it restored, in 10 to 14 business days or more after receipt of the counter-notice, at our sole discretion.

Repeat Infringer Policy: In accordance with the DMCA and other applicable law, Clyver has adopted a policy of terminating, in appropriate circumstances and at Clyver's sole discretion, users who are deemed to be repeat infringers. Clyver may also at its sole discretion limit access to the Site and/or terminate the memberships of any users who infringe any intellectual property rights of others, whether or not there is any repeat infringement.

Additional Terms for Teachers

Providing Sessions. The Sessions listings and information you provide must be accurate, complete, and not misleading. You agree to not misrepresent in any way, whether material or not, any aspect of your identity, background, skills, qualifications, credentials, regulated status, or professional standing when using the Service. You agree to comply with all applicable laws and regulations in the jurisdictions in which you provide or offer to provide a Session. If your offer or provision of a Session requires a license or other regulatory approval, you must first obtain that license or approval and remain in good standing before offering or providing the Session.

You agree to protect the privacy and legal rights of the Learners of your Sessions. You are the sole data controller of the personal data you collect in relation with your Sessions and must comply with any applicable data protection law. If your Learners provide you with personal information, you must provide legally adequate privacy notice and protection for those Learners. Further, you may only use that information for the limited purposes for which the Learner has given you permission to do so.

Clyver has no obligation to display your Sessions listings or information and reserves the right to display Sessions listings or information to Learners in any manner determined by Clyver, including but not limited to the right to move a listing to a more appropriate category.

Disclosure to Third Parties. Clyver may disclose to Learners or other third parties information regarding your aggregate activity on Sessions (for example, how often and how soon you respond to Learner messages on average, the number of repeat Learners you have, the average duration of your Session, number of free/paid sessions conducted, feedback ratings and reviews (both positive and negative) on your performance). Such information may also be available on third-party websites. For further information about the use of your information or data, please refer to Clyver's Privacy Policy.

Verifying Teacher Details: Clyver may in some instances attempt to verify certain information provided by you, although Clyver has no obligation to do so.

Basic Use Requirements: To use the Service, you will need a device capable of making a video call and working Internet access.

Pricing and Payments: Clyver Sessions are provided for a fee. To charge a fee for your Session you must provide us with your payout information agree to the payment terms. You may not collect fees for a Session outside of Clyver. You may set the price for your Session in the currencies permitted by Clyver, but the price must be presented to the Learner inclusive of all applicable taxes (including value added taxes). The price of your Session may be displayed in your Learner’s local currency; however, Clyver is not responsible for the accuracy of currency rates or conversion.

You may be charged a fee to use the Service, as specified in Service Fees (which may be revised by Clyver from time to time).

You are also responsible for determining if a Session is taxable and the applicable tax rate to collect for each taxing jurisdiction where Sessions are sold. You are responsible for remitting taxes due on a Session to the appropriate tax authority. Where either Clyver or its payment processor is required by applicable (local) legislation to determine, apply, and pay the applicable taxes on payments made or received by any one of them, Clyver or the payment processor (and not you) will be responsible for applying, collecting, and remitting the taxes to the appropriate taxing authority. If Clyver collects and remits value added taxes on consumer payments (where required of Clyver by applicable local law) and this remittance fulfills the applicable requirements for value added taxes on those consumer payments, such taxes will not be passed on to you by Clyver. Where Clyver is required to collect and remit taxes as described in this section, you and Clyver will recognize a supply from you to Clyver for tax purposes, and you will comply with the relevant tax obligations arising from this additional supply. Clyver will deduct an amount equal to such taxes from the price you’ve set for your Session in addition to the applicable Sessions transaction fee, if any. The remainder (sales price less Sessions transaction fee and amount equal to any taxes paid by Clyver on your behalf) will be remitted to you. You are responsible for providing any applicable tax residency certificates to Clyver. If Clyver or its service provider does not receive such documentation, Clyver will deduct taxes at the applicable tax rate.

Recorded Sessions: You are not allowed to record a Session without the Learner’s explicit consent to the recording. Separately, Clyver may record a Session: (i) for quality assurance purposes; (ii) in response to a report of abuse as detailed below under “Misuse of the Service”; or (iii) for offering paid or free value-added services for the Learner or Teacher. You expressly authorize the use of your image for the purposes set out above.

Misuse of the Service. Please ensure that you use the Service in accordance with our Terms of Service and Privacy Policy. There is an option available in the Service to report abuse. A report of abuse may trigger a recording of the Session in progress and/or access to the chat history by Clyver as required in order to investigate the reported abuse.

Access to Data in the Service. Clyver or its agents may access and review Session recordings, messages, chat transcripts, or other private information in the Service to provide Learner service, review claims of abuse, and for other reasons in accordance with Clyver’s general Privacy Policy, unless stated otherwise.
