By accessing and using any of these Services, you acknowledge and agree to be bound by the applicable Terms of Use specific to the Services you are accessing and using.

1. ZILLEARN LEARNING NETWORK TERMS OF USE

1.1. Purchasing of Courses 

1.1.1. Pricing 

ZilLearn’s default and only sale currency is the United States Dollar (“USD”), in which all Courses on the Platform will be published and displayed. Payment of the Courses will be made in the displayed currency. 

1.1.2. Transaction Taxes

If you elect to purchase a Course, then you agree to pay and will be responsible for the payment of that Course fee and any applicable transaction tax associated with such access and use.

ZilLearn works with a third party digital sales cross-border transaction tax compliance service provider (“Transaction Tax Provider”) to ensure Value-Added Tax (“VAT”), Goods and Services Tax (“GST”), Sales Tax or other similar taxes (collectively, “Transaction Taxes”) compliance for the invoicing of Courses purchased via the Web Platform. For Courses purchased via the Platform iOS App or Android App, the respective App Stores will be responsible for ensuring such compliance. We have no control over the Transaction Tax Provider and respective App Stores and accept no legal responsibility or liability for the services that they provide.

Details of the Transaction Tax Provider and a link to their tax solutions can be found here

Details of the iOS App Store and a link to their tax information for in-app purchases can be found here

Details of the Android App Store and a link to their tax information for in-app purchases can be found here

1.1.3. Payments

ZilLearn works with a third party payment processing service provider (“Payment Provider”) which allows you to make payment for the Courses you purchase via the Web Platform using a variety of payment methods. Your use of the payment processing service will be subject to the Payment Provider’s terms and conditions of service. For Courses purchased via the Platform iOS App or Android App, the respective App Stores will be responsible for making the payment processing service available to you. We have no control over the Payment Provider and respective App Stores and accept no legal responsibility or liability for the services that they provide. 

You may elect to pay in your local currency at the point of purchase if this option is available for your payment method, as determined by the Payment Provider and respective App Stores, including the applicable currency conversion rates, and subject to their terms and conditions. 

When making a purchase for any Course, you acknowledge and agree not to use an invalid or unauthorized payment method. If your payment method fails and you still get access to use the Course on the Platform, you acknowledge and agree to pay the corresponding fee within thirty (30) days of notification from ZilLearn. We reserve the right at any time, in our sole and absolute discretion, to disable your access and use of any Course for which we have not received adequate payment.

Details of the Payment Provider and a link to their terms and conditions of service can be found here.

Details of the iOS App Store and a link to their payment terms for in-app purchases can be found here.

Details of the Android App Store and a link to their payment terms for in-app purchases can be found here

1.1.4. Refunds 

ZilLearn offers Learners a thirty (30)-day guarantee on Courses purchased via the Web Platform. This guarantee period of refund (“Refund Period”) commences on the date you paid for access and use of the Course and applies, provided you have not downloaded any of the Course content for offline learning, or accessed and used more than forty percent (40%) of the Course content.

For Courses purchased via the Platform iOS App or Android App, the Refund Period is determined by the refund policy of the respective App Stores. You will need to contact the respective App Stores for a refund. We cannot refund any payment you have made via the Platform iOS App or Android App.

Details of the iOS App Store and a link to their refund terms for in-app purchases can be found here.

Details of the Android App Store and a link to their refund terms for in-app purchases can be found here

To activate a refund for any Course purchased via the Web Platform, you must do so during the Refund Period and there must be proof of a valid or authorized ZilLearn invoice that has been issued to you for the purchase. If you need our help to activate a refund for your payment made via the Web Platform,  please contact us by raising a ticket here

We reserve the right at any time, in our sole and absolute discretion, to terminate, suspend or restrict your access and use of the Service, if it is believed that you are abusing the refund policy.

Once a refund has been processed, you will no longer be able to access and use the Course from your User Account. Your learning progress will also be removed from your User Account.

 1.2. Learner’s Obligations

As a Learner accessing and using ZilLearn Learning Network, you acknowledge and agree that:

  • the answers to quizzes and responses provided by you to Course Creators as part of the Course requirements are your own work (except for open responses that explicitly permit collaboration);
  • you will not make answers to quizzes and responses provided by you to Course Creators as part of the Course requirements available to anyone else (this includes answers provided by you and any official answers provided by Course Creators);
  • you will not engage in any activities that may dishonestly or fraudulently improve or hurt your results or the results of others; 
  • you will comply with all the Course requirements that ZilLearn and Course Creators may stipulate or require, from time to time;
  • you will not solicit personal information from any other Users; and
  • you will comply fully with these Terms of Use.

2. ZILLEARN CREATOR STUDIO TERMS OF USE

2.1. Selling of Courses

2.1.1. Pricing

ZilLearn’s default and only sale currency is USD, in which your Courses will be provided and displayed on the Platform. As we do not currently support any other currency apart from USD, we do not maintain a pricing matrix for Courses. You will be responsible for setting the selling price of your Courses provided via the Web Platform, subject to a minimum of USD2 per Course. 

The same Courses will also be provided via the respective App Stores, which may maintain a pricing matrix of their own. For instance, if a Course is Y price, but based on the pricing matrix of the App Store, the nearest price is Z price (rounded up from Y price), then the price of the Course as provided via the App Store will be Z price. Where the App Store does not maintain a pricing matrix, to ensure there is no price discrimination between one App Store and the other App Store, the final price as determined based on the pricing matrix of one App Store will automatically apply to the other App Store which does not maintain a pricing matrix, that is, the Course will be provided via both App Stores at the same price. 

Payment for your Courses will be made in the displayed currency. Learners may elect to pay in their local currency at the point of purchase of any of your Courses if this option is available for their payment method, as determined by the Payment Provider and respective App Stores, including the applicable currency conversion rates, and subject to their terms and conditions. 

2.1.2. Transaction Taxes

When Learners purchase your Courses in jurisdictions that require ZilLearn to impose Transaction Taxes, our Transaction Tax Provider for purchases via the Web Platform, or in the case of purchases via the Platform iOS App or Android App, the respective App Stores, will collect and remit the Transaction Taxes to the relevant tax authorities, as detailed in the ZilLearn Learning Network Terms of Use. You acknowledge and agree to us increasing the selling price of your Courses where we determine that such taxes may be due. 

2.1.3. Revenue Share

If you provide Courses on the Platform for a fee, then you agree to the deduction of a revenue share that is due to ZilLearn from any revenue generated by you on the Platform.

We reserve the right at any time, in our sole and absolute discretion, to make changes to the revenue share deduction.

Below illustrates the revenue sharing arrangement:

  • For every Course sold via the Web Platform: ZilLearn will deduct a revenue share of fifteen percent (15%) from the selling price (excluding any applicable transaction tax) of the Course. The net revenue generated by you is therefore eighty five percent (85%) of the selling price.
  • For every Course sold via the Platform iOS App or Android App: The respective App Stores will deduct a revenue share of thirty percent (30%) from the selling price (excluding any applicable transaction tax) of the Course before ZilLearn deducts a further revenue share of fifteen percent (15%) from the remaining seventy percent (70%) of the selling price. The net revenue generated by you is therefore fifty nine point five percent (59.5%) of the selling price.

2.1.4. Receiving Payments

ZilLearn’s default and only payout currency is USD, in which any revenue generated by you on the Platform will be paid to you via your Payout Account (as defined below), after a minimum of forty five (45) days from the point of purchase has passed, to accommodate an up to thirty (30)-day refund period offered for the purchase of any of your Courses. Such payments will be automatically scheduled on the first day of the month, subject to you having a de minimis balance of USD20 from all your revenue generated on the Platform. 

If you are eligible to receive payments by providing Courses on the Platform via a third party payout processing provider which ZilLearn works with (“Payout Provider”), the following terms and conditions will apply:

  • You will need to set up an account with the Payout Provider (“Payout Account“). As your Payout Account will be linked to your User Account, it can only receive payments from ZilLearn when your User Account is operational. In the event your User Account will be closed, your Payout Account will have to be unlinked from your User Account. Any unpaid monies will be transferred to your Payout Account, subject to the terms and conditions regulating final payout (as detailed below);
  • Payments from ZilLearn to your Payout Account will be automatically scheduled on the first day of the month, subject to the minimum withdrawal limit, withdrawal fees, applicable taxes and payment processing timescales as publicized by the Payout Provider (which may differ depending on your country of residence). The minimum withdrawal limit will not apply in the case of a final payout upon closure of your User Account except that your account balance must not be in negative after deduction of withdrawal fees and applicable taxes, failing which, your User Account will be closed with no final payout to be made to your Payout Account;
  • Your use of your Payout Account will be subject to the Payout Provider’s terms and conditions of service. We have no control over the Payout Provider and accept no legal responsibility or liability for the services that they provide. Your Payout Account may also be subject to other fees and charges as publicized by the Payout Provider; and
  • Details of the Payout Provider and a link to their terms and conditions of service can be found here

If you are eligible to receive payments by providing Courses on the Platform via any other means, other terms may apply to the receipt of such payments. We reserve the right at any time, in our sole and absolute discretion, to make changes to the payout arrangement.

2.1.5. Refunds

You acknowledge and agree that Learners will have the right to receive refunds, as detailed in the ZilLearn Learning Network Terms of Use. You will not receive any revenue share from Courses sold for which refunds have been granted.

2.1.6. IRS Tax Compliance

You are responsible and liable for the filing of tax returns and payment of taxes in any jurisdiction as applicable, in respect of revenue generated by you on the Platform.

ZilLearn, as the operator of the Platform, has a duty to comply with applicable tax reporting obligations, which may necessitate the collection of information about you and any revenue generated by you on the Platform. You acknowledge and agree to the sharing of this information with any relevant tax authorities for purposes of our compliance with such reporting obligations.

Specifically, as ZilLearn is based in the USA which necessitates compliance with the Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”) regulations, regardless of where you are located, you may be subject to applicable taxes in the USA (including without limitation, withholding taxes and income taxes) for revenue generated by you on the Platform in respect of your Courses being accessed and used by Learners in the USA.

ZilLearn works with a third party IRS tax compliance service provider (“IRS Tax Compliance Provider”) to ensure the fulfilment of applicable tax reporting obligations by ZilLearn to the IRS on behalf of individuals and entities who have generated revenue on the Platform.

3. ZILLEARN SKILLS TERMS OF USE

In delivering the Service and generating the information thereof, including without limitation, reports, graphs, tables, charts, data, job and course listings, job and course matches, statements, assertions, predictions, recommendations, referrals, guidance or advice, ZilLearn (via a third party service provider which we work with) leverages a range of analytical, probabilistic and interpretive techniques. Such techniques represent methods for addressing fundamental uncertainty which may or may not prove effective or accurate and that the information generated directly or indirectly from the Service are inherently uncertain, or may contain omissions, inconsistencies or inaccuracies.

You also acknowledge and agree that the information generated from the Service may be based on a number of external databases and sources which are subject to changes from time to time, such as a particular database or source may become unavailable or cost prohibitive with respect to our continued searching, as determined at any time, in our sole and absolute discretion. As real-time data is dynamic and unstructured in nature and presents unique challenges for coding and analysis, notwithstanding that we undertake to make reasonable efforts to remove duplicate job and course listings from the databases and sources, as well as to provide accurate coding, you further acknowledge and agree that given the intrinsic difficulty of this undertaking, it may not be possible to completely remove all duplicate job and course listings and/or prevent any miscoded data.

ZilLearn does not monitor or investigate any of those websites on a regular basis and makes no representation or warranty whatsoever in respect of the quality, suitability, functionality or legality of the external courses recommended by the Service, or any other external courses, data or resources you will find on those websites, for any purpose whatsoever. In addition, any recommendation of such external courses does not imply that ZilLearn endorses the third party course providers. Engagement of those third party course providers will be at your own discretion and risk and you acknowledge and agree that ZilLearn will not be responsible whatsoever for any such engagement, including any harm you may suffer, or any loss or damage you may incur as a result of any defect, error, fault or failure to perform with respect to the external courses provided by those third party course providers.
