Viewcy.com, Inc. (“Viewcy,” “we” or “us”) provides its computing applications and services, and the data, information, tools, functionality, updates and similar materials delivered or provided by Viewcy (collectively, the “Service”), subject to your agreement to and compliance with the conditions set forth in this Terms and Conditions Agreement (the “Agreement”). This Agreement sets forth the legally binding terms and conditions governing your use of the Service. By using the Service or otherwise entering into this Agreement, you are creating a binding contract with Viewcy.
This Agreement applies to individuals or entities whose service offers are facilitated through the Viewcy platform (the “Educators”). For terms and conditions applicable to the end-users of Educator’s services facilitated through the Viewcy platform, please click here.
Viewcy may revise or update the Terms and Conditions by posting an amended Agreement through the Service and making you aware of the revisions. Your use of the Service following an update to this Agreement is considered acceptance of the updated Agreement. If you do not accept the changes, you must stop using the Service.
As long as you are in compliance with the conditions of this Agreement and all incorporated documents, Viewcy grants you a limited, revocable, non-assignable, non-transferrable, non-sublicensable, non-exclusive right to receive the Service, and to access and use the tools materials thereon.
You may also grant a limited license to the individuals using your services, as facilitated by the Service (your “End-Users”) to receive the Services as provided by you for their personal, non-commercial use. You agree that, as between you and Viewcy, you are responsible for all of the conduct of your End-Users.
No rights not explicitly listed are granted.
The following additional terms are incorporated into this Agreement as if fully set forth herein:
2. Copyright Policy
3. Complaint Policy (including Privacy and Trademark)
You and your End-Users must be at least thirteen (13) years old to use the Service. By using the Service, you represent that you and your End-Users meet this minimum age requirement. If someone receiving services through your offering is under the age of thirteen (13), their parent/guardian must create their account, consent to the terms and privacy policies of the Service, and interact with and use the Services on behalf of such minor individual.
The Service is provided as a subscription-based service, with a separate subscription period for each billing period [specify – yearly, quarterly, monthly, etc…]. The fees associated with your subscription are identified based on your selection at checkout. Your subscription will be continued until cancelled. Invoices are sent out on a [yearly, quarterly, monthly] schedule, with the invoice being issued on the first day of each calendar [year, quarter, month]. Invoices are due within ten (10) days of the date of issuance. Viewcy reserve the right to charge interest on any unpaid amounts, a 5% or the highest rate permitted by law, whichever is lower.
You may cancel your subscription on ninety (90) days notice, with the “Effective Date of Termination” being ninety (90) days after notice is given to Viewcy. Cancellation will take effect at the end of the quarter that is current as of the Effective Date of Termination.
All fees collected by Viewcy from Educator’s customers will be held in escrow by Viewcy until the third day after the services are identified to be rendered. After said three-day period, Viewcy will release the funds to the Educator.
Viewcy recommends that all Educators post their cancellation and refund policies to the Service. In the event that Educators do not post alternative cancellation and refund policies, end-users may cancel scheduled services from an Educator up to twenty four (24) hours before it is scheduled to be rendered.
Refunds can only be processed through the Service during the three (3) day period after the services are identified to be rendered, during which time the service fees are held in escrow. Refund requests during this period may be reported to Educators to Viewcy, and Viewcy will cancel the transaction at issue. If an Educator would like to offer refunds to its end-users after this three day period, it must make arrangements with its end-users outside the Service, and no refund will be available from Viewcy.
In the event that Viewcy releases funds to an Educator and experiences a chargeback or other cancellation by an end-user related to a released payment, Viewcy may assess a charge to such an Educator’s account, which such Educator must satisfy. Viewcy reserves the right to collect such charge from future receipts on that Educator’s account, or through other lawful means.
