Users may create an account on the SERVICE as a “trainer” (hereinafter referred to as a “TRAINER”) and receive access to features and properties of the SERVICE reserved for such “trainers”.
The SERVICE provides the TRAINERS with the ability to upload user content to the SERVICE for commercial purposes. TRAINERS may upload to the SERVICE:
text descriptions of themselves and their work and content in the “About” section;
still images with text descriptions; and
videos with text descriptions (hereinafter collectively referred to as “TRAINER CONTENT”).
When submitting still images or video TRAINER CONTENT, the TRAINER must specify if such content shall either be:
free to watch by all users of the SERVICE; or
shall be premium content only available as part of the subscription based services (hereinafter collectively referred to as “PREMIUM TRAINER CONTENT”).
The specification made by the TRAINER when uploading shall be final and cannot be changed later.
TRAINERS shall receive a remuneration for uploading still image and video PREMIUM TRAINER CONTENT. The amount of the remuneration is calculated by TREAM using a confidential algorithm and shall correspond to the overall revenue generated by the SERVICE from subscription based services minus a profit share retained by TREAM. The algorithm may be changed by TREAM from time to time without the TRAINER’s consent, but will, in any event, consider success metrics achieved by the respective TRAINER, such as active followers, and its PREMIUM TRAINER CONTENT, including video views and recommendations. The TRAINER shall not be entitled to disclosure of the algorithm and the exact calculation of the remuneration, which shall remain TREAM’s exclusive business secret.
Remuneration will begin to accumulate once PREMIUM TRAINER CONTENT has been uploaded to the SERVICE. TRAINERS will be notified by TREAM on a monthly basis of the net amount of remuneration available for payout, provided it exceeds a total balance of 50 (fifty) U.S. dollars. TRAINERS must submit a tax invoice to TREAM, including value added tax (VAT), if applicable, using the submitting function of the SERVICE. All payment processing is handled by the third party payment processing company BrainTree. Payments issued to TRAINERS will take approximately 10-15 (ten to fifteen) days and are only made in U.S. dollars.
TRAINER CONTENT uploaded through the SERVICE will generally be made public. The TRAINER consents to the public dissemination of all TRAINER CONTENT the TRAINER submits through the SERVICE for the time period ending 30 (thirty) days after the TRAINER has canceled his status as a TRAINER. The TRAINER understands that once made public TRAINER CONTENT will be in the public domain and cannot be made private again, even after TREAM takes down the TRAINER CONTENT from the SERVICE after cancellation of the status as a TRAINER. The TRAINER understands and agrees that TRAINER CONTENT the TRAINER communicates using the SERVICE may be recorded, stored, copied and/or retransmitted by TREAM.
The TRAINER acknowledges that it is solely responsible for the TRAINER CONTENT that the TRAINER posts, publishes, uploads, displays or otherwise communicates through the SERVICE and for the consequences of posting, publishing, uploading or displaying any TRAINER CONTENT.
The TRAINER agrees that it will not use the SERVICE to post, transmit, or share TRAINER CONTENT that the TRAINER did not create or that the TRAINER does not have permission to use, share and publish through the SERVICE. The TRAINER confirms that it has all intellectual property rights (including without limitation copyright and trademark rights), licenses, and permissions that are needed to use, post, publish, upload or display on the SERVICE and to authorize TREAM to use the TRAINER CONTENT the TRAINER provides in the manner described in these Terms and conditions of Use. By submitting, uploading or posting TRAINER CONTENT, the TRAINER warrants that it does not infringe upon any intellectual property rights of another person.
The TRAINER herewith grants US and OUR AFFILIATES a perpetual, worldwide, irrevocable, royalty-free, nonexclusive, sub-licensable license to use, reproduce, create derivative works of, distribute, publicly perform, publicly display, transfer, transmit, distribute, and publish the respective TRAINER CONTENT and subsequent versions of the respective TRAINER CONTENT for the purposes of:
displaying the TRAINER CONTENT on the SERVICE;
distributing the TRAINER CONTENT, either electronically or via other media, to users seeking to download or otherwise acquire it; and/or
storing the TRAINER CONTENT in a remote database accessible by end users, for a charge. This license shall apply to the distribution and the storage of the TRAINER CONTENT in any form, medium, or technology now known or later developed.
It is the sole responsibility of the TRAINERS, not TREAM, to control, manage, protect, and enforce their own TRAINER CONTENT. All customer comments, complaints, concerns, inquiries, or questions should be directed to the TRAINERS directly, and not to, or through, TREAM.
TREAM does not confirm any of the TRAINER’s purported identities and properties, including their holding of any particular education, licenses and concessions. All users of the SERVICE are solely responsible for determining the identity and suitability of the TRAINERS you contact through your use of the Service. TREAM further makes no representations, offers no assurances, and does not investigate any of the TRAINER’s backgrounds, capabilities, certificates, professionalism, legal compliance, morality, character, actions, or demeanor and you hereby acknowledge that you assume the risk of any encounter or interaction with such persons.
