Your permission to use Gete-du Service, and the licenses granted herein, are expressly conditioned upon your acceptance of these Terms of Service, and the following additional terms and conditions and policies, which are hereby incorporated by reference (collectively, the “Agreement”)
Gete-du is a web-based service available from the domain www. gete-edusheets.com. This service provides Educators and Publishers with an online marketplace to buy and sell educational materials directly from and to each other, as well as to Student/Learners, which may consist of original digital or physical materials created by the seller (“Content”). The service provided by Gete-du is referenced herein as the “Service.” Gete-du at no time owns or sells any product for or on behalf of Educators. Educators who sell Content via the Service are referenced herein and in the Service as "Sellers.” Educators who purchase Content via the Service are referenced herein and in the Service as a “Buyer.” Students who purchase Learning Content via the Service are referenced herein and in the Service as a “Student-Buyer.”
This Terms of Service/User Agreement (“Agreement”) governs your access to and use of the Service, whether in the capacity of a Seller, Publisher-Seller, Buyer, Student-Buyer or visitor, including the finding, buying, posting, selling, and sharing of Content, and participating in online forums, feedback loops, and chats, which features and activities shall also be considered part of the “Service.” Portions of Gete-du Service are publicly available to all visitors to the site. Other portions of the Service are available only to registered members who are Sellers, Buyers and/or Student-Buyers (collectively, “Members”). By registering with Gete-du or by using the Service in any manner – including, but not limited to, by visiting the www. gete-edusheets.com website – you acknowledge and agree to the terms stated in this Agreement. This Terms of Service applies to both visitors and Members.
The Service of selling Content is intended for Educators, Tutors, Publishers, Home School Families, and Students. You must have a PayPal account to be able to sell and receive payments.
Service Fees & Transaction Fees. Sellers who wish to sell their Content through the Service must join Gete-du. Sellers will be charged service fees on sales made through the Service. Buyers who wish to purchase Content through the Service also must join Gete-du. Buyers pay a service fee purchasing materials from Sellers through the Service.
Shipping, Handling and Processing Charges. Sellers may charge for shipping, handling, and processing of the physical materials that are sold via the Service in one of two ways: (1) by including the shipping, handling, and processing method and charges in the sale price of the item; or (2) by charging a flat rate for shipping, handling, and processing of all items sold.
Sellers are solely responsible for setting the prices for the sale of their Content distributed through the Service, including both electronic and physical materials, provided that such pricing (for items that are not offered free of charge) is not below the minimum price set by Gete-du. The minimum set is $1 to ensure all costs are covered. Sellers are obligated to sell their Content at the prices listed on the Service.
By listing an item for sale, or uploading it to the Service, you (Seller) represent and warrant to prospective Buyers that you have the right and ability to sell and to ship and that the listing is accurate, current, and complete and is not misleading or otherwise deceptive. You further represent and warrant that the Content and use of the same will not infringe any right – including, but not limited to the copyright or trademark rights – of any third party. When selling digital Content, you agree that the entire product being sold must be contained within the download offered and that no part of such digital Content will be delivered separately or require an additional purchase, for example via a third-party website or other channels.
For any printable item of Digital Content you upload, you agree to provide your authorization, in the form of the statement below, to Buyers to print and make copies of free and purchased resources.
"The holder of this receipt is authorized by the owner or creator of the materials listed below, to print and/or make copies of these materials for personal use and/or classroom instruction.”
Additionally, unless otherwise authorized, Sellers agree not to – and agree to cause their affiliates, agents, employees, and contractors not to – use or disclose to any third party any order information, or other data or information regarding Buyers or any other users of the Service, which is obtained through the Service or disclosed to Sellers by Gete-du in connection with a transaction made via the Service, for any purpose except as necessary to complete transactions made through the Service and otherwise fulfill their obligations under this Agreement (including, without limitation, for purposes of solicitation, advertising, direct marketing, harassment, invasion of privacy, or any other objectionable conduct).
When you (Buyer/Student-Buyer) purchase original digital Content you will have the ability to download the materials from your My Purchases page for as long as the materials are available through the Service. In the case of digital video or audio content, you will have the ability to stream the content from your My Purchases page, again, for as long as the materials are available through the Service. We may, in our sole discretion, make original digital Content you purchase available indefinitely, but your access to such materials through your My Purchases page may be disabled if the material is removed from the Service, for example, by the original seller as a result of the original seller's account being closed or the materials being removed in response to an intellectual property complaint or Digital Millennium Copyright Act notification. For this reason, we encourage you to download any original digital Content you may purchase, and back up those materials accordingly. Gete-du cannot restore access to, or provide copies of, purchased materials that have been removed from our Service.
You agree not to share your purchases with your colleagues unless you have purchased additional licenses. You agree not to post your purchased or freely downloaded files on the Internet.
You agree to pay in full for all Content purchased through the Service, and agree that Gete-du may charge your credit card, PayPal or other accounts for any Content purchased, including any applicable shipping charges, and for any additional amounts (including any taxes and late fees, as applicable) as may be accrued to or in connection with your Member Account.
You are responsible for the timely payment of all sales prices and fees, and for providing Gete-du with valid credit card information or PayPal account details for payments of all such charges.
All physical and digital product sales are final, and no refunds are available.
Gete-du may in its sole discretion make certain exceptions to this policy on a case-by-case basis, for example, if: (a) a digital file is defective; (b) a product description is materially deceptive or misleading; or (c) a physical item has not been shipped within two weeks of an order being placed. If such an exception is made, Gete-du may issue to the buyer a refund for such purchase in any manner it deems appropriate.
As a buyer, it is your responsibility to determine that you have the appropriate hardware/software, internet, and service connectivity to make use of digital files, that the file format is appropriate for your needs, and that the content you are purchasing is legal and noninfringing. No refunds are available in these cases. Products removed from the Service due to a complaint of copyright/trademark infringement, or for any other reason, are not eligible for a refund.
If Gete-du elects to issue a refund to a buyer, the amount refunded will be deducted from the seller’s next Payout, provided however that if the seller’s next Payout is less than the refund amount(s), Gete-du may charge such refund amount(s) to the seller’s credit card, PayPal account, or other payment processor account.
Gete-du offers the opportunity for educators to apply to become a “Featured Seller”. This enables a member to have up to 50 resources promoted in larger posts, colorful backgrounds, and a featured badge. They are also mentioned in Gete-du newsletter for that month. Members pay $50 a month in advance. Up to 20 members per month can be featured. Positions open the 1st day of every month until filled. Members who apply after this point will receive a full refund of their application.
Gete-du will also select one random member to be featured free of charge for the month with the same benefits as a paid user
