Recap Discover Beta Terms


Updated April 26th, 2017

The terms below are to be considered as superseding the Recap Site Terms (where conflicting) and be for RECAP DISCOVER only. Other terms mentioned in Recap Termss apply to RECAP DISCOVER as well.

Description of Service. RECAP DISCOVER is a web-based service available from the domain app.letsrecap.com/discover (later, discover.letsrecap.com). This service provides educators with an online marketplace to post, buy, and sell specific educational materials directly from and to each other, which will consist of original digital materials created by the seller (“Journeys”). SWIVL at no time owns or sells any product for or on behalf of teachers. Teachers who sell Journeys via the Service are referenced herein and in the Service as “Teacher-Sellers.” Teachers who purchase Journeys via the Service are referenced herein and in the Service as “Teacher-Buyers.”

This Agreement governs your access to and use of the Service, whether in the capacity of a Teacher-Seller or Teacher-Buyer, including the finding, buying, posting, selling, and sharing of Journeys, and participating in online forums, comments, feedback, voting shall also be considered part of the “Service.” Portions of the RECAP DISCOVER are publicly available to all visitors to the site. Other portions of the Service are available only to registered members who are Teacher-Sellers and/or Teacher-Buyers (collectively, “Members”). By registering with RECAP DISCOVER or by using the Service in any manner – including, but not limited to, by visiting the website – you acknowledge and agree to the terms stated in this Agreement.

The Service is in Beta stage until mid-summer 2017 (“Beta Period”). That means that some features and capabilities are limited, subject to change, and are under review.

2. The Service Is For Adults Only. The Service is intended for adults only. You must be 18 years or older to use this site; users under 18 are not authorized to use the Service.

3. Fees, Services, Pricing, and Payments. After the Beta Period, the Service will have a defined fee, pricing, and payment structure for the Teacher-Sellers and Teacher-Buyers. Teacher-Sellers will be able to offer their Journeys to Teacher-Buyers for a one time fee. During Beta Period, all Journeys will be free to use by Teacher-Buyers, no additional fees or payments will be made, except as outlined in this section. After the Beta Period is completed, Teacher-Sellers will be able to convert any or all of the Journeys during Beta Period to paid Journeys. During the Beta Period, to encourage creation of new Journeys, SWIVL is going to pay all participating Teacher-Sellers for creation of quality Journeys. SWIVL will pay $5/Journey for up to 5 Journeys created during Beta Period. If more than 5 Journeys are created, only 5 will be paid for (maximum $25). For some Teacher-Sellers, SWIVL reserves the right to offer additional incentives for creation of additional Journeys. SWIVL will communicate explicitly with these Teacher-Sellers and it will not be applicable to all.

During and after the Beta Period, SWIVL will review all created Journeys and remove/ban/exclude any Journeys that violate Member Conduct (see section below). Teacher-Sellers will not be paid on any Journeys that will be removed due to a violation of Member Conduct.

Within 30 days after Beta Period, SWIVL will ask each participating Teacher-Seller to indicate how they would like to get paid for the Journeys created during the Beta Period. Teacher-Sellers will be able to either provide Paypal account information for a payment or use accumulated proceeds for payment in the future RECAP DISCOVER marketplace (i.e. participate as Teacher-Buyer).
