Fan / Student Purchases

The following section outlines the rules that govern Fan/Student/Creator Transactions:

Under the rules of the Standard Contract between Fan/Student and Creator, all Fan/Student/Creator Transactions are contracts between Fans/Students and Creators. While we offer the Defence Student platform and store content to enable Fan/Student/Creator transactions, we are not parties to the Standard Contract or any other contract that might exist between a Fan/Student and a Creator, and we take no responsibility for any Fan/Student/Creator Transactions.

In accordance with Defence Student pricing guidelines, creators oversee how much to charge for Fan/Student/Creator Transactions and any content you could be granted access to.

VAT is not included in Fan/Student Payments; however, it will be charged at the current rate if applicable.

You need to add a credit card to your account before you can initiate a Fan/Student/Creator Transaction with a specific Creator. After that, click the “Buy now or subscribe” button on the appropriate Creator’s page.

You provide permission to us and our affiliates to give your credit card information to an outside payment processor so they can process your Fan/Student Payment. The currency for all Fan/Student Payments will be in USD, Sterling Pounds, Euros or potentially other currency depending on your location in the world but Defence Student will make that decision. You might be charged currency conversion costs by your payment card provider. Your credit card provider or bank may impose fees or charges, and neither we nor our subsidiary companies will be liable for them. We also have no control over currency exchange rates or other charges.

If you designate more than one payment card, the whole Fan/Student Payment will be deducted from the other card if you attempt to use the first card to make a Fan/Student Payment and it is declined for any reason.

The payment provider will deduct (i) the Fan/Student Payments that are Subscriptions from your payment card on a monthly basic, and (ii) the Fan/Student Payments that are not Subscriptions from your payment card on an immediate basis (including any gratuities you may give a Creator). You give permission for your credit card information to be used to deduct each of these payments.

All Subscriptions to a Creator’s profile, except for free trials, will automatically renew at the conclusion of the applicable subscription period, unless your payment card is refused, the subscription price has increased, or you have disabled the “Renew” button. This means that you will need to flip off the “Renew” if you want to cease subscribing to that Creator’s profile and pay ongoing monthly subscription fees.

If you cancel a subscription, you will not be able to view the relevant Creator’s Content after that, and no further payments will be deducted from your card for subscriptions to that Creator’s profile (unless you decide to pay for a new subscription to that Creator’s profile). You will not be able to view the content unless you press the re-active button.

You guarantee that you won’t unjustly ask for a refund for any Fan/Student/Creator Transactions, nor will you unjustly ask your credit card company for a chargeback over any such transactions. We have the right to suspend or terminate your user account if we believe that any refund or chargeback request was submitted by you in bad faith.

After that, users will be able to subscribe to your account and become fans/Students, and you will be able to start posting content.

Creators’ individual legal responsibility: Creators are only individuals. The Terms of Service personally bind each Creator. Your personal legal obligation remains unaffected if you have an agent, agency, management business, or other third party helping you manage your Creator account (or managing it on your behalf).

Content co-authored by:

You warrant (i.e., you make a legally enforceable promise to us) that every individual shown in any Co-Authored Content uploaded to your account is either i) a Creator on Defence Student, or ii) a consenting adult, and that you have verified the identity and age of each such individual. This applies to any Content you upload to your Creator account that shows anyone other than or in addition to you (even if that person cannot be identified from the Content) (“Co-Authored Content”).

You also guarantee that you have gotten written authorization from each person listed in your co-authored content and that you have kept a copy of that consent on file.

You acknowledge and agree that any Co-Authored Content that features you but is posted on another Creator’s account is not eligible to pay you any Creator Earnings. We may ask you to submit accurate and comprehensive legal information for each person who appears in Co-Authored Content if you upload it on your account. We may delete the co-authored content, restrict your ability to post as a creator, terminate your account, and/or withhold all or any portion of the Creator Earnings that you have earned but have not yet received if you refuse to give us with the information we require.

You consent to absolving us of any liability and to refraining from suing us for Co-Authored Content. You acknowledge that any legal action resulting from Co-Authored Content will be brought against the Creator(s) who uploaded the content or, if relevant, the person(s) who made an appearance in the Co-Authored Content.

Payments To Authors

An authorised third-party payment processor will handle all Fan/Student Payments.

If you choose the Stripe Pay-out Option, Stripe will pay your bank account for the Creator Earnings and collect the Fan/Student Payment.

If you do not select Stripe as your pay-out option, our fee will be subtracted from the fan payment you get, and we or one of our subsidiary businesses will hold your creator earnings.

Your Creator Earnings will be added to your account in a timely manner. Once Creator Earnings appear on your Defence Student account, you will be able to contact us so a withdraw can be processed.

You need to have at least the minimum pay-out amount in your Defence Student account for us to withdraw Creator Earnings.

Your Creator Earnings at the relevant moment are represented by the amount you see on your Defence Student account’s “current balance.” If you choose the “Stripe” Pay-out Option, Stripe will manage the exchange rate, and the Fan/Student Payments and Creator Earnings amounts will be displayed in your local currency. To get the money, your bank can charge you transfer or currency conversion costs. You can also be charged a fee by your e-wallet provider to access the funds. We do not control currency conversion rates or fees levied by your bank or e-wallet provider, and neither we nor our subsidiary companies will be liable for any money collected from you or your provider.

When a Fan/Student successfully files a chargeback or refund request with their credit card company for a Fan/Student Payment that you received, we may choose to investigate the matter and take money out of your account in an amount equal to the Creator Earnings you received on the amount that was charged back or reimbursed.

We do not retain any information that you supply to us when you register your Pay-out Options with a third-party payment source, except for Pay-out Options that require payment by direct bank transfer.

Situations Where We Might Refuse To Pay Creator Earnings

Any or all the Creator Earnings that are owed to you but have not yet been paid out may be withheld by us:

If we believe you have violated any of the Terms of Service, either substantially or frequently.

If you try to violate or threaten to violate any aspect of the Terms of Service in a way that we believe could have substantial repercussions for us or another user (including potential or actual loss);

Should we have reason to believe that any portion or all the Creator Earnings are the consequence of illegal or fraudulent action on the part of you or the Fan/Student who made the Payment that resulted in the Creator Earnings, for as long as it takes to investigate the possible illegal conduct or the actual, threatened, or suspected breach by you (if any). We may notify you that you have forfeited your Creator Earnings if, after conducting our investigation, we determine that: (i) you have violated the Terms of Service seriously or repeatedly; (ii) you have attempted or threatened to violate the Terms of Service in a way that has or could have serious consequences for us or another User (including actual or potential loss caused to us or another User); and/or (iii) the Creator Earnings are the result of unlawful or fraudulent activity.

In addition, if we learn that you have obtained, encumbered, pledged, transferred, or otherwise permitted a lien to be placed on Creator Earnings, we reserve the right to withhold all or any portion of the Creator Earnings that are entitled to you but have not yet been awarded. We agree not to pay any third-party lienholders from Creator Earnings, and we reserve the right to postpone payment of Creator Earnings until the lien has been satisfied.

If we have the authority to do so under these Terms of Use for Creators, we will not be liable to you for any withholding or forfeiture of your Creator Earnings.

We may arrange for you to be paid the portion of the Creator Earnings that we determine to be unrelated to breaches by you of the Terms of Service or suspected unlawful or fraudulent activity if we are withholding all or any part of the Creator Earnings that are due to you and we find that part of the Creator Earnings withheld by us is unrelated to those breaches. However, you acknowledge and agree that we may withhold all Creator Earnings owed to you that have not yet been paid, and we may deduct such amounts from any losses we incur, if we believe that your breach or breaches of the Terms of Service have caused us loss.

If, after conducting our inquiry, we find that Creator Earnings have been forfeited, we will do everything in our power (barred by law) to make sure that any Fan/Student Payments that contributed to the forfeiture of Creator Earnings are reimbursed to the relevant Fans/Students who made the Payments.

Encouraging VAT And Tax Compliance:

Depending on their unique situation, we advise all Creators to get expert assistance to make sure they follow local tax and VAT laws.

By using Defence Student as a Creator, you guarantee (i.e., promise in court) that you have reported to the appropriate tax authority in your jurisdiction, as required by law, that you have reported and will continue to report to them the receipt of all payments made to you in connection with your use of Defence Student.

You guarantee, or make a legally enforceable commitment, that you will always abide by all applicable Tax rules and regulations while utilising Defence Student as a Creator. If, at any time while you have an Defence Student account, you are involved in any Tax non-compliance (such as failing to report earnings or being assessed a penalty or interest related to Tax), or if an inquiry, lawsuit, or investigation is filed against you in connection with, or potentially resulting from, any Tax non-compliance, you consent to the following:

notify us in writing within seven days of the commencement of the litigation, inquiry, or investigation (if applicable) or the occurrence of the tax non-compliance by email using our website at www.defencestudent.com.

Please send us an email as soon as possible with: Information about the actions you are doing to rectify the tax non-compliance and ensure that it doesn’t happen again, including with any applicable mitigating factors; and whatever more details we could reasonably need regarding the Tax non-compliance incident.

To be clear, you oversee your own tax affairs, and neither we nor our subsidiary companies (i) will be liable for any advice you receive regarding your tax affairs or for any general tax information you provide on Defence Student or via email, nor (ii) for any tax that Creators fail to pay.

If we learn of any tax non-compliance on your part, we retain the right to terminate your Defence Student account.

UK Established Creators And VAT

Creators are regarded as offering their services to Defence Student, not to Fans/Students directly, for the purposes of UK VAT only.

If you are a Creator with a UK VAT registration:

For VAT purposes, you will be deemed to have charged Defence Student your Creator Earnings (80% of all Fan/Student Payments), plus UK VAT at the applicable rate in effect at the time of the Fan Payment.

Additionally, Defence Student agrees that you may add UK VAT at the current rate in effect at the time of the referral payment to the total amount of any referral payments payable to you under the Referral Programme Terms. This is subject to the conditions outlined in this section of these Terms of Use for Creators.

You consent to creating monthly VAT invoices, addressed to Defence Student Limited, for your Creator Earnings (and Referral Payments, if any), for the relevant period, along with the VAT on such Creator Earnings.

In addition to your regular Creator Earnings, you will receive a separate payment (the “VAT Amount”) for the VAT element added to your earnings (and referral payments, if any). However, for us to pay you the VAT Amount, you must first provide us with copies of the following documents:

You must obtain your VAT registration number.

A legitimate VAT invoice created, submitted, and sent to us via email obtaining utilising the Defence Student VAT invoice.

a VAT return filed with HM Revenue & Customs that includes taxable supply values at least equivalent to the total of your Creator Earnings (and Referral Payments, if applicable) for the applicable period. The monthly earnings information will need to be provided. 

You are required to pay HM Revenue & Customs the VAT Amount that was paid to you immediately.

You can email us for support by using our website at www.defencestudent.com if you require any additional information or help with what is required to obtain the VAT Amount.

More details about who needs to register for VAT in the UK can be found in the UK’s HM Revenue & Customs guidance. It also covers the VAT position for Creators whose earnings fall below the earnings threshold or who are not registered for VAT.

You guarantee that you will preserve copies of any VAT invoices and VAT returns related to your Defence Student profits, and that you will give us copies of these records at our written request within a period of 14 days. For the avoidance of doubt, you must abide by all VAT legislation regulations and create, provide, obtain, maintain, and preserve correct, full, and current records, invoices, accounts, and other documents needed for VAT law purposes.

If you are a UK-based Creator who is exempt from having to register for UK VAT, you should keep an eye on the number of taxable sales you make there (including any Referral Payments) to make sure you haven’t gone over the threshold for UK VAT registration. As a taxable person, it is your responsibility to keep an eye on whether you have surpassed the threshold for VAT registration.

The money that Creators make from other sources is not tracked by us. On the other hand, we will keep an eye on the yearly income of UK Creators on our platform. Should your profits above the VAT registration threshold and you are not yet registered for VAT, we will notify you and request that you do so. If you receive such a notification regarding VAT registration, you commit to registering for VAT as quickly as feasible and to providing us with your VAT registration number via email within six weeks of receiving said notification. Should you neglect to comply, your Defence Student account can be terminated.

TERMS OF REFERRAL PROGRAMME

DISCLOSURE:

Please read the following notice on the Defence Student’s Referral Programme in accordance with section 120(1) of the Fair-Trading Act of 1973 and rule 3 of the Trading Scheme Regulations 1997 (as amended):

We are not allowed to, nor can any member of the Defence Student Referral Programme (including Referring Users and Referred Creators) entice someone to pay us money by claiming that doing so will benefit them in some way.

Be wary of assertions that joining the Defence Student Referral Programme will automatically result in large revenue.

We legally must tell you that if you sign this contract, you have 14 days to cancel and receive your money back, even though we do not charge Referring Users any money to participate in the Defence Student Referral Programme.

If you utilise the Defence Student Referral Programme, you must abide by these additional terms. This agreement includes these Referral Programme Terms.

The meanings assigned to defined phrases in the Referral Programme phrases are the same for each User as they are in the Terms of Use. Furthermore:

In these Referral Programme Terms, “Referring User” is also referred to as “you” or “your”.

“Referred Creator” refers to the individual who uses the special referral link provided by the Referring User to sign up as a Creator on Defence Student.

The Defence Student Referral Programme: What is it? Through the Defence Student Referral Programme, current Users can suggest individuals to Defence Student who are interested in becoming Creators and earn referral fees. These payments are limited and computed in accordance with the Referral Programme Terms. Instructors that refer someone to sign up can earn 5% from their earnings within the first 6 months up to £1 million sterling pounds (reviewed several times throughout each year)

Payments For Referrals

How are payments made for referrals determined? The Referring User will receive a referral payment equal to five percent (5%) of the Fan/Student Payments generated by the Referred Creator in the first 6 months following the date on which the Referred Creator becomes a registered User of Defence Student, up to a maximum referral payment to the Referring User of £1 million Sterling Pounds per Referred Creator, once the Referred Creator has followed the above-described rules of the Defence Student Referral Programme. This means that the Referring User’s referral payments to that Referred Creator will be limited to that amount. The Referring User will not receive any more referral payments for that Referred Creator after 6 months have expired.

Referral payments will be issued to the appropriate Referring Users for all referrals made on the last business day of the month or around the start of the next month (we need a few days, and we cannot be liable for lateness if an error occurs)

VAT: Referring Users should be aware that, unless otherwise specified in the “Promoting Tax compliance and VAT” section of the Terms of Use for Creators, all referral payments that we make to you will include any VAT (as defined in the Terms of Use for Creators) that is or becomes chargeable on any supplies that you make.

Please read the following notice on the Defence Student Referral Programme in accordance with section 120(1) of the Fair-Trading Act of 1973 and rule 3 of the Trading Scheme Regulations 1997 (as amended):

We are not allowed to, nor can any member of the Defence Student Referral Programme (including Referring Users and Referred Creators) entice someone to pay us money by claiming that doing so will benefit them in some way.

Be wary of assertions that joining the Defence Student Referral Programme will automatically result in large revenue.

Selecting a payout method to get referral rewards: Prior to receiving referral payments, you must select a payout method from Defence Student that is available in your nation of residence. We refer to these techniques as “Payout Options”.

What is the frequency of referral payments? On the last business day of the month or around the first day of the following calendar month, you will receive the referral payment that is owed to you for any Fan/Student Payments that you make to the Referred Creator during that calendar month. For instance, you will receive the referral payment that is owed to you for any Fan/Student Payments that you make to the Referred Creator in February on the last business day that month or around March 1.

The payment for the referral is made by whom? We, not the Referred Creator, are responsible for paying the referral fee.

Our entitlements concerning the programme of referrals.

If referral payments have been made in error, we have the right to recoup the mistakenly paid amounts from the User who received them.

To verify who should receive any referral payments and whether a payment for a referral should be issued, we may ask you or the Referred Creators (or both) to provide us with identification and any other information we deem necessary. You might no longer be eligible for referral rewards for the relevant Referred Creator if you don’t give us the information we need.

Any Referring User who has already received referral payments based on Fan/Student Payments made to Referred Creators prior to the changes taking effect will still be eligible to receive referral payments from us, even if we decide to modify or terminate the Defence Student Referral Programme at any time (including the way referral payments are computed).

Situations where we might refuse to pay referral fees:

Any or all the referral payments that are owed to you but have not yet been paid out may be withheld by us:

If we believe you have violated any of the Terms of Service, either substantially or frequently.

If you attempt to violate or threaten to violate any element of the Terms of Service in a way that has the potential to seriously harm us or another user (including by causing us or another user actual or potential loss).

If there is reason to believe that any or all the referral payments that you are entitled to have been obtained through illegal or fraudulent means—either by you, by the Fan/Student who made the Fan/Student Payment to the Referred Creator that led to the referral payment, or by the Referred Creator to whom the Fan Payment was made—then we should be notified.

For as long as it takes to investigate any suspected illegal or fraudulent behaviour, as well as any actual, threatened, or suspected breaches by you (if any). We may notify you that you have forfeited all or part of your referral payments if, after conducting our investigation, we determine that: (i) you have violated the Terms of Service seriously or repeatedly; (ii) you have attempted or threatened to violate the Terms of Service in a way that has or could have serious consequences for us or another User (including actual or potential loss caused to us or another User); and/or (iii) all or any part of the referral payments owed to you are the result of unlawful or fraudulent activity.

In addition, if we learn that you have secured, encumbered, pledged, transferred, or otherwise permitted a lien to be placed on referral payments, we reserve the right to withhold all or any portion of the referral payments that are payable to you but have not yet been paid out. We promise not to reimburse third-party lienholders for referral fees, and we reserve the right to postpone payment of Creator Earnings until the lien has been satisfied.

If we withhold or forfeit any money owed to you under the Defence Student Referral Programme and we are authorised to do so under these Referral Programme Terms, we will not be held responsible to you.

We may arrange for you to receive payment for the portion of the referral payments that is unrelated to your violations of the terms of service or suspected illegal or fraudulent activity if we are withholding all or any portion of the referral payments that are owed to you and we find that such withholding is not the cause of any of the referral payments that we are withholding. You do, however, agree that we may withhold all referral payments owed to you that have not yet been received and we may deduct such amounts from any losses we incur if we believe that your breach(es) of the Terms of Service have caused or may cause us loss.

Referral Program’s Guidelines

Enrolment in the Defence Student Referral Programme is restricted to Defence Student Users who possess an active User account. The Defence Student Referral Programme will not be available to Users whose accounts have been deleted by them or suspended or terminated by us for any reason.

To be eligible for referral payments under the Defence Student Referral Programme, you must provide a bank account or payment method details to us so we can pay you.

Every user has a special referral code that they can share with others. This code can be accessible through their user account. You may not pretend to be Defence Student or imply that we are sharing or promoting your referral code when you share your special code. This code is used so you can receive your 5% referral reward. You may not distribute or advertise your special referral code through Google AdWords or any other comparable advertising network or search engine advertising service.

The Referred Creator needs to provide us with that same code when they sign up if you want to receive their 5%. We cannot be liable for any mistakes when it comes to payment. We won’t be able to recommendation or compensate you for referrals if someone signs up with Defence Student without using your special referral code.

Before using your special referral code, the Referred Creator must not have created a user account under the same name or a different identity. No referral compensation will be given to you for the referral if the Referred Creator is or was previously a Defence Student user.

Referral rewards will be given to you based only on the revenues from the Referred Creator’s first User account, even if they set up other User accounts. You won’t receive any referral fees for any further User accounts that the Referred Creator creates.

If we find that a Referred Creator you referred is either owned or operated by you, or has a business relationship with you, you will not get any referral rewards. For us to ascertain if you own or manage the Referred Creator or whether you have a business relationship with them, you will furnish us with any information that we ask for.

As a Referring User, you consent that when you advertise Defence Student in any manner,

You promise not to misrepresent Defence Student, its Users, the services, programmes, and content (including Content) made accessible through Defence Student in any way; and you promise not to tell a prospective creator that using Defence Student will bring in a specific amount of money (or any money at all) or to predict the number of Fans that are likely to use the platform.

Defence Student has the right to remove Creators off the platform if they do not sell any courses in a 30-day period.
