As an instructor, you are contracting directly with Our Offbeat Life LLC (a corporation in the United States), regardless of whether another TTR subsidiary facilitates payments to you.
1. Creator Obligations
As a creator, you are responsible for all content that you post, including lectures, quizzes, coding exercises, practice tests, assignments, resources, answers, course landing page content, labs, assessments, and announcements (“Submitted Content“).
You represent and warrant that:
- you will provide and maintain accurate account information;
- your Submitted Content will not infringe or misappropriate any third party’s intellectual property rights;

- you will ensure a quality of service that corresponds with the standards of your industry and instruction services in general.
You warrant that you will not:
- post or provide any inappropriate, offensive, racist, hateful, sexist, pornographic, false, misleading, incorrect, infringing, defamatory or libelous content or information;
- post or transmit any unsolicited or unauthorized advertising, promotional materials, junk mail, spam, or any other form of solicitation (commercial or otherwise) through the Services or to any user;
- use the Services for business other than providing tutoring, teaching, and instructional services to students;
- use TTR to promote 3rd parties that are in direct competition with the services that we provide;
- engage in any activity that would require us to obtain licenses from or pay royalties to any third party, including the need to pay royalties for the public performance of a musical work or sound recording;
- frame or embed the Services (such as to embed a free version of a course) or otherwise circumvent the Services;
- impersonate another person or gain unauthorized access to another person’s account;
- interfere with or otherwise prevent other creators from providing their services or content; or
- abuse TTR resources, including support services.
2. License to TTR
You have the right to remove all or any portion of your Submitted Content from the Services at any time. Except as otherwise agreed, TTR’s right to sublicense the rights in this section will terminate with respect to new users 60 days after the Submitted Content’s removal. However, (1) rights given to students before the Submitted Content’s removal will continue in accordance with the terms of those licenses (including any grants of lifetime access) and (2) TTR’s right to use such Submitted Content for marketing purposes shall survive termination.
We may record and use all or any part of your Submitted Content for quality control and for delivering, marketing, promoting, demonstrating, or operating the Services. You grant TTR permission to use your name, likeness, voice, and image in connection with the offering, delivering, marketing, promoting, demonstrating, and selling the Services, your Submitted Content, or TTR’s content, and you waive any rights of privacy, publicity, or other rights of a similar nature, to the extent permissible under applicable law.
3. Trust & Safety
3.1 Trust & Safety Policies
You agree to abide by TTR’s Trust & Safety policies, Restricted Topics policy, and other content quality standards or policies prescribed by TTR from time to time. You should check these policies periodically to ensure that you comply with any updates to them. You understand that your use of the Services is subject to TTR’s approval, which we may grant or deny at our sole discretion.
We reserve the right to remove content, suspend payouts, and/or ban creators for any reason at any time, without prior notice, including in cases where:
- content falls below our quality standards or has a negative impact on the student experience;
- an instructor engages in behavior that might reflect unfavorably on TTR or bring TTR into public disrepute, contempt, scandal, or ridicule;
- an instructor engages the services of a marketer or other business partner who violates TTR’s policies;
- an instructor uses the Services in a way that constitutes unfair competition, such as promotion of their off-site business in a way that violates TTR’s policies; or
- as determined by TTR in its sole discretion.
3.2 Co-Creators and Assistants
The TTR platform allows you to add other users as co-creators or assistants for Submitted Content that you manage. By adding a co-creator or assistant, you understand that you are authorizing them to take certain actions that affect your TTR account and Submitted Content. Violations of TTR’s terms and policies by your co-creator or assistant may also impact your TTR account and Submitted Content. TTR is not able to advise on any questions or mediate any disputes between you and such users. You are responsible for paying your co-creators and assistants outside the TTR platform.
3.3 Relationship to Other Users
Creators don’t have a direct contractual relationship with subscribers, so the only information you’ll receive about subscribers is what is provided to you through the Services. You agree that you will not use the data you receive for any purpose other than providing your services to those subscribers on the TTR platform, and that you won’t solicit additional personal data or store subscribers’ personal data outside the TTR platform. You agree to indemnify TTR against any claims arising from your use of subscribers’ personal data.
3.4 Anti-Piracy Efforts
We may partner with anti-piracy vendors to help protect your content from unauthorized use. To enable this protection, you hereby appoint TTR and our anti-piracy vendors as your agents for the purpose of enforcing copyrights for each of your content, through notice and takedown processes (under applicable copyright laws like the Digital Millennium Copyright Act) and for other efforts to enforce those rights. You grant TTR and our anti-piracy vendors primary authority to file notices on your behalf to enforce your copyright interests.
You agree that TTR and our anti-piracy vendors will retain the above rights unless you revoke them by sending an email to email@example.com with the subject line: “Revoke Anti-Piracy Protection Rights” from the email address associated with your account. Any revocation of rights will be effective 48 hours after we receive it.
4.1 Price Setting
When creating Submitted Content available for purchase on TTR, you will be prompted to create a base price (“Base Price“) for your Submitted Content. Alternatively, you may choose to offer your Submitted Content for free. If you are a premium creator, you will also be given opportunities to participate in certain promotional programs under the terms of our Promotions Policy (“Promotional Programs“).
If you do not opt to participate in any Promotional Programs, we will list your Submitted Content for the Base Price or the closest local or mobile app equivalent (as detailed below). If you opt to participate in a Promotional Program, we may set a different discounted price or list price for your Submitted Content as described in the Promotions Policy.
When a student purchases through a mobile application, the mobile platform provider’s pricing matrix will control, and we will choose the price tier closest to the applicable Base Price or Promotional Program price. Because mobile platforms impose their own currency conversion rates, conversions for mobile app prices may not match the conversions in the Price Tier Matrix.
You give us permission to share your Submitted Content for free with our employees, with selected partners, and in cases where we need to restore access to accounts who have previously purchased your Submitted Content. You understand that you will not receive compensation in these cases.
4.3 Promotional Programs
TTR offers several optional marketing programs (Promotional Programs) in which you can choose to participate, as detailed in our Promotions Policy. These programs can help increase your revenue potential on TTR by finding the optimal price point for your Submitted Content and offering them through subscriptions collections.
There is no up-front cost to participate in these programs, and you can modify your participation status at any time, though changes you make will not apply to currently active campaigns and certain programs may have additional requirements on termination.
5.1 Revenue Share
When a subscriber purchases your Submitted Content, we calculate the gross amount of the sale as the amount actually received by TTR from the subscriber (“Gross Amount“). From this, we subtract any Transaction Taxes, a 25% service and processing fee, and any amounts paid to third parties in connection with the Promotional Programs to calculate the net amount of the sale (“Net Amount“).
If you have not opted into any of TTR’s optional Promotional Programs, and except for sales through instructor-generated coupon codes or course referral links as described below, your revenue share will be 75% of the Net Amount less any applicable deductions, such as subscriber refunds. If we change this payment rate, we will provide you 30 days notice using prominent means, such as via email or by posting a notice through our Services.
If you opt into any of the Promotional Programs, the relevant revenue share may be different and will be as specified in the Promotions Policy.
TTR makes all creator payments in U.S. dollars (USD) regardless of the currency with which the sale was made. TTR is not responsible for your foreign currency conversion fees, wiring fees, or any other processing fees that you may incur. Your revenue report will show the sales price (in USD).
5.2 Creator Coupons and Course Referral Links
The TTR platform allows you to generate coupon codes and referral links to offer certain items of your Submitted Content to students at a discount, at TTR’s current price, or for free, as permitted within the Services. These coupon codes and referral links are subject to limits, and you may not sell them on third-party websites or otherwise offer them in exchange for compensation. Additional information and restrictions on these coupon codes and referral links are outlined in our Trust & Safety policies.
5.3 Receiving Payments
For us to pay you in a timely manner, you must own a PayPal account, or a U.S. bank account (for U.S. residents only) in good standing and must keep us informed of the correct email associated with your account. You must also provide any identifying information or tax documentation (such as a W-9 or W-8) necessary for the payment of amounts due, and you agree that we have the right to withhold appropriate taxes from your payments. We reserve the right to withhold payments or impose other penalties if we do not receive proper identifying information or tax documentation from you. You understand and agree that you are ultimately responsible for any taxes on your income.
For individual creator balances over $50 USD, payment will be made within 45 days of the end of the month. Balances under $50 USD will be held until the minimum $50 USD threshold is met.
As a creator, you are responsible for determining whether you are eligible to be paid by a U.S. company. We reserve the right not to pay out funds in the event of identified fraud, violations of intellectual property rights, or other violations of the law.
If we cannot settle funds into your payment account after the period of time set forth by your state, country, or other government authority in its unclaimed property laws, we may process the funds due to you in accordance with our legal obligations, including by submitting those funds to the appropriate government authority as required by law.
If a user asks for a refund after we have paid the relevant creator payment, we reserve the right to either (1) deduct the amount of the refund from the next payment sent to the creator or (2) where no further payments are due to the creator or the payments are insufficient to cover the refunded amounts, require the creator to refund any amounts refunded to the subscriber for the creator’s Submitted Content.
While you are a published creator and subject to the requirements below, you may use our trademarks where we authorize you to do so.
- only use the images of our trademarks that we make available to you, as detailed in any guidelines we may publish;
- only use our trademarks in connection with the promotion and sale of your Submitted Content available on TTR or your participation on TTR; and
- immediately comply if we request that you discontinue use.
You must not:
- use our trademarks in a misleading or disparaging way;
- use our trademarks in a way that implies that we endorse, sponsor, or approve of your Submitted Content or services; or
- use our trademarks in a way that violates applicable law or in connection with an obscene, indecent, or unlawful topic or material.
7. Deleting Your Account
If you wish to delete your account, you can do so on the user dashboard. If you have active subscribers to your Submitted Content, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org before submitting any account deletion requests. This will enable us to confirm relevant account deletion runout periods for you and your subscribers.
We’ll use commercially reasonable efforts to make any remaining scheduled payments that are owed to you before deleting your account. You understand that if subscribers have previously enrolled in your Submitted Content, your name and that Submitted Content may remain accessible to those students after your account is deleted. If you don’t want your Submitted Content to remain accessible to subscribers after you delete your account, you must contact TTR via email at email@example.com with the subject line “Subscriber Access after Account Deletion.” If you need help or encounter difficulty deleting your account, you can contact us via our Support Center.
