Author Specific Rights
This section applies to commission based authors only.
- Any documents sent to us for sampling purposes will never be made public or sold to a customer.
- You may leave our system at any time without any notice and we will remove your documents from sale and delete any samples we have.
- You will retain the intellectual property rights to your notes at all times and we may not place your notes anywhere else - online or offline - without your express permission.
- At your request, or upon leaving our system, any documents not previously sold to customers will be permanently deleted from our system. In the case where your documents have been sold to a customer we need to retain a copy of your notes in case said buyer deletes the files from their hard-drive and needs to download them again. As such only previous purchasers will have access to deleted documents - no new customers will be able to see, buy or download them.
- We will not give out your real name to customers who ask for it.
Author Specific Terms
In addition to being bound by the general terms above, commission based authors on our website must read, understand and agree to the conditions and stipulations below before uploading materials for sale on our website.
- The author agrees to sell their notes in their capacity as an individual rather than in the capacity of an incorporated business. It is strictly forbidden to sell your notes in a corporate capacity through our website.
- Oxbridge Notes will pay a percentage royalty on each sale of your notes. The current figure in your country is 50%. A transfer of the balance owed will be initiated within the first five days of each month via the Paypal/Stripe service. Oxbridge Notes reserves the right to change any aspect of this financial arrangement and if you are unhappy with the new arrangements then you are free to leave our service, no questions asked.
- Oxbridge Notes reserves the right to set the price at which your notes will sell for on our website.
- The author may not, in any circumstances, negotiate a sale outside of our system with potential buyers. We reserve the right to scan messages for the disclosure of contact details and to inspect emails which our systems detect as potentially in breach. If a disclosure is found your account will be immediately deleted and you will automatically forfeit any commission you have remaining.
- Authors agree a) not to use this site to engage in activities which infringe the intellectual property of others; b) not to impersonate another person.
- Oxbridge Notes may, at any time and without prior notice, remove your notes for sale from the website for any reason whatsoever. In particular we will remove notes that do not sell well or, in subjects where age of notes is a crucial factor, where the notes are more than two years old.
- Oxbridge Notes will create samples of the files you upload and place these on our website so as to encourage potential buyers. Please be aware that due to the nature of the web, other companies (such as Google) may scrape this content and include it within their databases and sometimes even their public facing websites. Thus even if you remove your notes from our system copies of that content may be mirrored at other URLs across the web. We cannot and do not accept responsibility for removing mirrored content.
- Oxbridge Notes does not accept responsibility for acts of notes buyers or other third parties which breach your intellectual property rights. In particular we disclaim liability for copyright infringement caused by notes buyers who subsequently redistribute your notes or infringe your intellectual property rights in any way. You will, of course, retain all rights to take legal action against such an infringing party and we will provide any information we can in helping you track this party down.
- In the very rare case that a buyer returns a product bought using our service and we grant that buyer a refund, then you will not receive any payment for that sale. The loss is shared equally between you, the author, and us, the publisher. If the return occurs after we've already paid your royalty for that sale then we will deduct that amount from your payment for the following month.
Tutoring Specific Terms
In addition to being bound by the general terms above, those accessing the tutoring service on our website must read, understand and agree to the conditions and stipulations below before applying to become a tutor or requesting a tutor.
- We expect all tuition given as a result of an Oxbridge Notes match to be conducted to a high standard and in a professional manner. If a tutor’s teaching or behaviour is determined to be below the standards we expect, we reserve the right to terminate our relationship with the tutor in question. Tutors take full responsibility for organising and conducting their own tuition.
- Tutors are free to determine their rate of pay for tuition themselves, and responsible for organising the method by which they are paid for tuition. The tutor may wish to charge additional expenses such as textbooks and travel expenses to the tutee, if so, these must be agreed upon with the tutee before each tutorial. Tutor and tutee agree to determine before beginning tuition what will be charged and how payment will be made. Oxbridge Notes advises against the use of cash payments, as these provide no record of the payment and can therefore leave both tutor and tutee vulnerable to false payment claims. Tutees agree that they will pay in whole and in a timely manner fees due for tuition and, if applicable, for the matching service provided by Oxbridge Notes.
- Oxbridge Notes acts on behalf of the self-employed tutor and will introduce the tutor to the tutee. Oxbridge Notes is only responsible for finding and matching tutees with an appropriate tutor, and is not responsible for the content of lessons nor the teaching methods of the tutor, nor does Oxbridge Notes accept any liability for the consequences of such tuition, including, but not limited to, exam results and dissertation scores. Oxbridge Notes does not accept any liability for claims by the tutee arising out of, or related to, tuition carried out by a tutor introduced by Oxbridge Notes.
- Tutees understand and agree that qualifications, grades, and experience listed in tutor profiles have been provided by the tutors themselves and that Oxbridge Notes in no way guarantees the truth of these details.
- All tutors seeking work through Oxbridge Notes agree that they have self-employment status in the UK and are responsible for their own tax affairs. Oxbridge Notes reserves the right to request National Insurance numbers and Unique Taxpayer References on behalf of HMRC if asked to do so. Tutors agree that they will duly pay the income tax and national insurance contributions which are due from them, whether in the United Kingdom or elsewhere, in relation to the payments made to them for work found through Oxbridge Notes. Tutors further agree to indemnify Oxbridge Notes in respect of all and any income tax and national insurance contributions which may be found to be due by them, as well as any interest, penalties, or gross-up therein.
- Note that students on Tier 4 Student Visas cannot be self-employed and so cannot seek work through Oxbridge Notes. Please check your Visa before applying to be an Oxbridge Notes tutor. By accepting matches through Oxbridge Notes, you are agreeing that you have the right to be self-employed, and must inform Oxbridge Notes if this is not the case. Not having the right to self-employment status will terminate your tutoring account and could violate your right to remain in the UK.
- Oxbridge Notes uses tutor data for the purposes of the services that it provides. Tutors providing personal data consent to the use of that data by Oxbridge Notes for the purpose of providing matches with tutees and to enable Oxbridge Notes to contact the tutor.
- Whilst working with tutees, tutors must not break any rules that apply to the students under their own agreements with the educational institutions which they attend. It is forbidden for any tutor to plagiarise any other person’s work, or to write any dissertation material, essays, problem set answers or exam solutions for the student to attempt to pass off as their own work. It is imperative that all of our tutors behave ethically and legally in conducting their work. Any tutors found to be supporting such activities will be dismissed and may find themselves legally liable for damages.
- Scraping our website/content for any purpose other than inclusion in the search engines Google, Yahoo, Bing, or DuckDuckGo, will be treated as copyright infringement and we will sue for the highest amounts possible under our legally protected rights.
- Contacting our authors or tutors through our website with the intent of poaching them / directing them to publish or tutor on your platform is strictly prohibited. We monitor these emails and fingerprint every request using sophisticated techniques that cannot be overridden by merely using proxies or onion networks. We also offer our authors and tutors a percentage of the legal winnings for reporting any competitors who attempt to poach them.
- For infringements of all the above, we will sue not only the company issuing this illegal request, but, to the extent the law permits, we will also launch personal claims against every programmer who wrote code that executes these copyright-infringing activities.
In our years of business we have never treated any author, customer, or other party such that a legal dispute ensued, but in the unlikely possibility that a legal intervention is necessary, we stipulate that our dealings are subject to the rules of UK law. For convenience, parties may unanimously agree to hold proceedings in another jurisdiction.
