C. Licensing of Resources
Licence. TTTN Authors own and maintain the intellectual property rights of their Resources and grant Members licences to use such Resources for limited use as described in this section. When you purchase a Resource, you are purchasing a licence to use the Resource in accordance with the terms of this Resource Licensing Policy. All downloadable and digitally consumed Resources can only be used in accordance with a licence, which can be either a ‘Teacher Licence’ or a ‘School Licence’.
Your use of any Resource, regardless of licence type and whether the licence is purchased by you, transferred to you by your organization, or purchased for you as a gift or on your behalf by your school or other entity, is subject to this Resource Licensing Policy and other terms set forth in these Terms and Conditions. You agree to comply with the terms of this Resource Licensing Policy as well as any additional terms the Author provides in the Resource Listing, to the extent that such terms do not conflict with these Terms and Conditions. In the event of any conflict between this Resource Licensing Policy and an Author’s terms, this Resource Licensing Policy will govern, except that Authors may grant certain additional rights to their Resources.
C.2 TEACHER LICENCE
A Teacher Licence is a licence that may be assigned to ONLY ONE specific Teacher, for that Teacher’s lifetime use. Teacher Licences are NON-transferable and may not be used by or reallocated to a different Teacher. In accordance with this limitation, a teacher who purchases a Teacher Licence can use a Resource for her or his lifetime but cannot transfer use of the Resource to another teacher after her or his retirement. Under a Teacher Licence, except as otherwise stated in these Terms and Conditions (such as in the ‘Access Limitations’ section below), the Author grants to the purchasing Member, for use by only one Teacher, a non-exclusive, perpetual, irrevocable, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, worldwide, limited licence to use the Resource for the purposes and under the conditions described below. The Author may grant additional rights at their discretion.
C.2.1 If you purchase a Teacher Licence:
C.2.1.1 You are permitted by the Author to assign use of the Resource to only one Teacher. Once a Teacher has been assigned, the Resource cannot be used by any other individual without purchase of an additional licence. For the avoidance of doubt, you can purchase a Teacher Licence for yourself, as a gift, or as an organization purchasing on behalf of a teacher. In such cases, a single ‘transfer’ of the Resource to the intended recipient is permitted, but you may not reallocate a Teacher Licence from one user to another or share the Resource with additional users unless you purchase additional licences.
C.2.2 As a Teacher holding a Teacher Licence:
C.2.2.1 You are permitted by the Author to use the Resource for personal, educational, and instructional use only (hereon ‘Personal Use’). This means you can use Resources to teach your students and for your individual study.
C.2.2.2 You are permitted by the Author to print and make copies of downloadable Resources as necessary for Personal Use. Copies may be made and provided to your students, classroom aides, and substitute teachers as necessary. Copies may also be made for students’ parents, classroom observers, supervisors, or school administrators for review purposes only. Hard goods and video resources may not be copied, shared, or otherwise reproduced.
C.2.3 Unless otherwise expressly permitted by the Author:
C.2.3.1 You may not use the Resource, in part or in whole, for commercial purposes. This means you cannot sell it, use it for advertising or marketing purposes, or use it in any other way in connection with a business or profit making activity.
C.2.3.2 You may not post or otherwise make the Resource available on any website.
C.2.3.3 You may not share, send, sell, sublicense, or transfer the Resource to someone else for their own Personal Use unless you purchase an additional licence for each additional educator you will share it with. Each Teacher Licence is for use by one specific educator only.
C.3 SCHOOL LICENCE
Subject to these Terms and Conditions and other TTTN policies, organizations using TTTN may have the option to purchase a ‘School Licence’ or upgrade an existing Teacher Licence to a School Licence. School Licences allow licence transfer from the original Teacher to a new Teacher under the conditions provided in this section. School Licences are only available to organizations.
Although School Licences can be transferred from one Teacher to another in accordance with the terms of this Resource Licensing Policy, a School Licence may be used by ONLY ONE user at a time. In order to transfer a School Licence from one Teacher to another, an organization must first reclaim the School Licence from the current Teacher. An organization may reclaim a School Licence in order to transfer it to a new user no more than once per calendar year. TTTN may, in its discretion, modify the frequency with which a School Licence may be transferred, or allow additional transfers on a case-by-case basis.
Except as otherwise stated in these Terms and Conditions (including without limitation the ‘Access Limitations’ section set forth below), under a School Licence, the Author grants to the purchasing Member, for use by only one Teacher at a time, a non-exclusive, perpetual, irrevocable, non-sublicensable, worldwide, limited licence to use the Resource for the purposes and under the conditions described below. The Author may grant additional rights at their discretion.
C.3.1 If you purchase a School Licence:
C.3.1.1 You are permitted by the Author to transfer the Resource to one Teacher within your organization at a time. Unlike a Teacher Licence, you can reclaim the licence from the current Teacher and re-assign it to a different Teacher. For the avoidance of doubt, you may not share a Resource with multiple users concurrently unless you purchase additional licences.
C.3.2 As a Teacher holding a School Licence:
C.3.2.1 You are permitted by the Author to use the Resource for Personal Use only.
C.3.2.2 You are permitted by the Author to print and make copies of downloadable Resources as necessary for Personal Use. Copies may be made and provided to students, classroom aides, and substitute teachers as necessary. Copies may also be made for students’ parents, classroom observers, supervisors, or school administrators for review purposes only. Hard goods and video resources may not be copied, shared, or reproduced.
C.3.3 Unless otherwise expressly permitted by the Author:
C.3.3.1 You may not use any Resource, in part or in whole, for commercial purposes. This means you can’t sell it, use it for advertising or marketing purposes, or use it in any other way in connection with a business or profit making activity.
C.3.3.2 You may not post or otherwise make any Resource available on any website.
C.3.3.3 A Teacher may not continue to use a Licence that has been reclaimed by the Teacher’s organization after the licence is reclaimed.
C.4 ACCESS LIMITATIONS
C.4.1 Downloadable Resources. TTTN cannot guarantee continuous access to any Resource through our Service. If at any time, TTTN ceases to host a Resource for any reason or you or TTTN terminates, suspends, downgrades, or otherwise limits your Account or access to TTTN’s Services, your ability to access the Resource through our Services may be terminated. It is your responsibility to maintain and store a copy of downloadable Resources on your device to ensure future access.
C.4.2 Digital and Video Resources. If you purchase access to a Resource in the format of streaming video or other non-downloadable formats, your license will expire if you or TTTN closes your account, or if TTTN ceases to host the Resource for any reason.
D. Intellectual Property
D.1 SERVICES AND SITE CONTENT
Except for Content uploaded or posted by Members, all other aspects of the Site and the Apps you find on our Services is owned or controlled by us. This includes, but is not limited to, all text, graphics, photographs, logos, and other imagery, videos, user interfaces, trademarks, computer code, and other content of our Site or Apps (collectively ‘Site Assets’). This also includes the design, structure, coordination, arrangement, expression, and the “look and feel” of Site Assets. Site Assets are protected by copyright, trademarks, trade dress, trade secret, and other intellectual property rights.
You may not use, reproduce, copy, modify, republish, perform, display, disassemble, reverse engineer, translate, or distribute Site Assets in any way to any person, computer, server, website, or other entity for any commercial purpose without our explicit permission. By commercial purpose we mean that you cannot sell, license, rent, use in your own business or website, incorporate into marketing materials or presentations, or make other commercial use of our Site Assets.
D.2 YOUR CONTENT
D.2.1 Rights you grant to TTTN. Some parts of our Services allow you to upload or post Content. You retain any intellectual property rights that you hold in that Content. TTTN does not take or claim any ownership (copyright, trademark, or otherwise) over your Content.
When you post or upload Content to our Services, you grant to us limited rights to store, use, and display, and provide access to the Content you post as necessary to provide our Services, such as to display your Resource in your store and in search results, to make your Resources available for download, and to display and promote your Resources on TeachersToTeachers.Net, through email, and ads on other sites or search engines, and through other marketing campaigns. For these purposes, you grant to us a nonexclusive, irrevocable, perpetual (except as otherwise provided herein), worldwide, sublicensable license to exercise any copyright, trademark rights, or other rights in and to your Content necessary to provide our Services to you and our other Users.
D.2.2 Rights you grant to others. When a Member purchases a license to use your Resource or downloads free Resources from you, you allow them to use your Resource as described in Section C of these Terms and Conditions above, in accordance with the license type purchased by such Member and any other terms you expressly set forth in writing in connection with such Resources (as long as any additional terms do not conflict with these Terms and Conditions). For the avoidance of doubt, you may, at your discretion and in accordance with these Terms and Conditions and any other policies set forth by TTTN, grant additional rights to purchasers of your Resources, but you may not enforce limitations on such use that are inconsistent with the rights granted in Section C.
For School Licences, the list price will automatically reflect an increase over the price you set for a Teacher Licence, and will be determined by applying a default percentage (determined by us) to the Teacher Licence list price. The default percentage is subject to change by us. As an Author, you may increase the percentage and therefore the overall price of a School License, but you may not set a percentage lower than the default determined by us.
D.2.3 Effect of account closure or Resource deactivation. If you or TTTN closes, suspends, or otherwise limits your Account or access to the Services, or downgrades your Account to a Teacher Membership, we will no longer display your store page or your Resource Listings, and your Resources will no longer be available for purchase or download by Members who haven’t previously purchased them. If you or TTTN deletes or deactivates a single Resource Listing, that Resource will not be available for purchase or download by Members who have not previously purchased or downloaded the Resource, and the Resource Listing will no longer be displayed in your store or in search results. If any of the above situations takes place, TTTN will continue to store your Resource file on our servers and will continue to make it available for download by Members who have previously purchased the Resource subject to other limitations set forth in these Terms. TTTN will continue to display your Communications unless you remove them from the Services before you leave. If you do remove them, we will no longer display them on our Services, but we may continue to store a copy of them in our databases.
D.3 REPORTING INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY VIOLATIONS
D.3.1 We respect the intellectual property rights of others and expect the same from all of our Members. No Member may post any material, information, communication, data, or anything else that infringes on the copyrights, trademarks, or patent rights of someone else.
D.3.2 It’s our policy to close the Accounts of Members who repeatedly or egregiously violate this policy.
D.3.3 We comply very closely with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) and other laws governing the use of intellectual property. Our Copyright Policy explains our policy and process for receiving notification and removing potentially infringing material from our Services. That policy is incorporated as part of these Terms and Conditions.
E. Payments & Earning
E.1 PURCHASING TERMS & REFUNDS
E.1.1 Refund Policy. All sales on TTTN are considered final and nonrefundable once an order is submitted. When you list a Resource or make a purchase on TTTN, you agree to this Refund Policy. We may, in our sole discretion, modify our Refund Policy or, on a case-by-case basis, issue a refund for a reason that falls outside of this Refund Policy. Authors can view a refund request and any applicable refund note in their Sales report. Authors may authorize a full or partial refund for any reason by contacting us.
E.1.2 Refund Policy Exceptions and Conditions. A refund will be considered if any of the following are deemed to apply: the resource is damaged, the resource is not complete, the resource is not as described. For a refund to be considered, TTTN must receive notification of the refund request within 5 days after the purchase date.
E.1.3 Payment methods and currency. We may offer a variety of payment methods to pay for purchases, such as a credit and debit card, PayPal Account, Account credit, or the available balance on a valid gift card. We accept payments in United States Dollars (USD). Cash payments and payments in other currencies will not be accepted. We may change or add to our accepted payment methods at any time and we are not obligated to accept payment by any means other than those accepted at the time of your purchase.
E.1.4 Promise to pay. When you buy something on TTTN (including Resources, Gift Cards, Account credit, Author Memberships, promotional, marketing or other services which may be available to Authors, and other products or services we may offer), you represent and warrant that you are authorized to make the purchase and to use the payment method and billing information you have provided. You further agree that TTTN may charge your payment method the amount due, which will be in U.S. Dollars. We are not responsible for any additional fees you may be charged by your financial institution such as international transaction fees or overdraft fees. Payment for certain purchases by Authors, such as promotional services, may be collected through a deduction from the Author’s next Earnings, or by credit or debit card if your current unpaid earnings are not enough to cover the purchase price.
E.1.5 Failure to pay and payment disputes. Failure to pay as promised may result in late fees being charged, Resources being removed from your Account, Account suspension or closure, or any other action we deem necessary. If we receive notice that you have disputed a charge related to a purchase made from your TTTN Account, we may, at our discretion, offer proof to challenge the dispute. Pending resolution of the dispute, we may remove the purchased Resources from your Account temporarily, or, if a refund is ultimately issued, permanently. In our discretion, we may take further action against your Account.
E.2.1 Earnings. Authors earn a percentage of the list price of each Resource they sell through our Services based on the Earnings that apply to their Membership Type (‘Earnings’). Earnings are reduced by the full amount of any Transaction Fees that apply, and increased by the full amount of any shipping fees charged. For details on our Author Membership options, and the Fees and Earnings that apply to each, see our Author Fees and Earnings Policy. Earnings from the sale of any Resource can be withdrawn by Authors at any time after 10 days of the date of purchase of a Resource.
E.2.2 Payout Account. To facilitate withdrawals, we work with third party companies which process and transfer funds between us and our Authors (hereon ‘Payment Services’). To withdraw Earnings, Authors must have an Account capable of receiving payments with a supported Payment Service (hereon ‘Payout Account’). If you are unable to register a Payout Account with any of the supported Payment Services, we may consider alternative means of issuing Payouts at our discretion on a case-by-case basis. We make no guarantees about the services offered by any third party companies including the current or any future Payment Services we may support, and we are not responsible for any payment delays or other complications caused by Payment Services. We may, at our discretion, modify the list of supported Payment Services at any time, discontinue support for an existing Payout Service, or make additional Payout options available.
E.2.3 Payment Service Fees. Payment Services may assess transaction fees when your Earnings are transferred to you. We will deduct from your Payout an amount equal to or less than the transaction fee assessed to us by the Payment Services. These transaction fees are subject to change at the discretion of the Payment Services. We are not responsible for any additional fees or taxes you may incur from other third parties related to receiving or accessing your Payouts.
E.3 SALES TAX
You may have and are responsible for the collection and/or payment of any sales tax you may owe. TTTN Authors may have the option to use a third party service integrated with the Services (the ‘Tax Services’) to enable sales tax collection on TTTN where the Author is obligated to do so.
E.3.1 Author Obligations. By operating as an Author on TTTN, and whether or not you opt to use the Tax Services, you hereby agree to the following:
E.3.1.1 Registration. You represent and warrant that you will use the Tax Services only to calculate and collect sales tax in jurisdictions where you are registered to collect sales tax.
E.3.1.2 Remittance. You represent and warrant that you will remit any collected sales tax that TTTN provides to you to the appropriate taxing authorities in accordance with applicable laws.

Last Update: 07/02/2019
TeachersToTeachers.Net, wholly owned by TRULERN Ltd, and hereon referred to as ‘TeachersToTeachers.Net’, ‘TeachersToTeachers’, ‘TTTN’, ‘us’, ‘we’, or ‘our’, has adopted the following Copyright Policy in accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (‘DMCA’) and other applicable laws.
TTTN respects the intellectual property rights of others, and we ask that our users do the same. As a service provider we host content produced by our community, as such we are not able to make legal judgments or make resource comparisons, and therefore we rely on formal Notices being served before we can take any action. If we receive a valid infringement Notice from the owner of a copyright or trademark which meets all of the requirements listed below, we comply with the law and remove the content from our site.
If we find that a member of our site has violated this policy repeatedly or egregiously, we will close that user’s account, and we may take further action.
SERVING NOTICE AND THE CONTENT REMOVAL PROCESS
We work as quickly as we can to complete notices of alleged copyright or trademark infringement. As required by the law, we have assigned a Designated Agent to receive infringement claims. You can find our Designated Agent’s contact information at the end of this Policy.
If you believe that your work has been used in a way that constitutes copyright or trademark infringement in material found on our website, please submit a notice to our Designated Agent. To comply with the requirements of the law, your notice needs to include ALL of the following information:
1. Identification of your intellectual property that you claim has been infringed upon on our website (if your notice pertains to the use of your trademark, please include your trademark registration number);
2. Identification of the material that you claim has infringed on your intellectual property, including:
2.1 An explanation of how the material identified is using your intellectual property in a way that constitutes infringement;
2.2 A description of where the material you have identified is located on our website, with sufficient detail to allow us to find the material (e.g. a URL of the resource page);
2.3 Your contact information, including your full name, mailing address, telephone number, and email address;
2.4 A statement by you, stating that you have a good faith belief that the disputed use of the work is not authorized by the intellectual property owner, its agents, or the law;
2.5 A statement by you stating that, under penalty of perjury, the information provided in your notice is accurate and that you are the intellectual property owner or are authorized to act on behalf of the owner;
2.6 An electronic or physical signature of the person authorized to act on behalf of the copyright holder.
Please keep in mind that under Section 512(f) of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, any person who knowingly misrepresents that content or activity is infringing may be subject to liability for damages, including attorney’s fees.
Please make sure you include all of the required pieces of information as this will help us more quickly address your notice. In addition to the above items, it may be helpful to include any additional information to allow us to verify the status of the work you claim has been infringed (for example, a copy of the trademark or copyright registration for the work).
AFTER NOTICE SUBMISSION
Trademark Notice. If your Notice of Trademark Infringement contains all of the required information, your request will be considered and action taken that we believe in good faith to be appropriate. To make it easier for us to process your request and ensure that all of the infringing content is removed, make sure your notice is as specific as possible about where your mark appears on our site. For example, by identifying each place it appears in a resource, or in the name of a store or title of a resource.
Copyright Notices. We will review your Notice of Copyright Infringement to make sure it contains all of the required information. The more specific your explanation is about which parts of a resource you believe are infringing, the easier it will be for us to process your request and ensure that the infringing content is removed. If we decide to take action on a notice, we contact the member who posted the content, forward them your notice, and remove the material from our site.
Please note that the user who posted the content has a legal right to submit a Counter-Notice (described in more detail below) if they believe that the content was misidentified as infringing or was removed by mistake. If we receive a complete Counter-Notice, we will forward it to you. You can then decide to take further legal action to protect the work. The law gives you 10 days to let us know that you have done so. Otherwise, we are obligated to allow the individual to re-post the content.
COPYRIGHT COUNTER-NOTICE PROCESS
If you have received a Notice of Copyright Infringement from us about one or more of your resources and you wish to dispute the claim that your work is violating the copyright of the notifier, you can submit a Counter-Notice to our Designated Agent by replying to the email that you were sent. Your Counter-Notice needs to contain all of the following information:
1. Identification of your material that has been removed, including a description of where the material appeared on our website before it was removed or disabled (e.g. a URL of the resource page);
2. A statement by you stating that, under penalty of perjury, you have a good faith belief that the material was removed as a result of a mistake or misidentification of the material in question;
3. Your contact information, including full name, mailing address, telephone number, and email address;
4. A statement by you stating that:
4.1 you consent to the jurisdiction of UK law, and
4.2 that you will accept service of process from the person who provided notification of the alleged infringement;
5. Your electronic or physical signature.
AFTER COUNTER-NOTICE SUBMISSION
If your notice includes all of the above information, we will forward it to the sender of the original notice. They will then have 10 days to inform us as to whether they have initiated further action to legally protect their work. If so, we have to respect that and your material will remain blocked from the site. If we do not receive anything from them, your resource will be re-posted at the end of that 10 day period.
