- Content Licensing Policy
3.1 Content License
All Content promoted for sale on the C2 Site belongs to each individual Seller, including all intellectual property rights. With the purchase of Seller content, Sellers grant Purchasers a de facto license to use such Content for Purchaser’s limited use as described in this section. Likewise, when you purchase Content, you are purchasing a license to use the Content in accordance with this Content Licensing Policy (Policy). All downloadable and digitally consumed Content can only be used in accordance with a license.
Your use of any Content, whether the license is purchased by you, transferred to you by your Organization, or purchased for you as a gift or on your behalf by your school or other entity, is subject to this Content Licensing Policy and you agree to comply with this Policy as well as any additional requirements which the Seller may impose as a condition of sale, and provided the Seller’s conditions do not conflict with this Policy, in which case these T&C and this Licensing Policy will supersede Seller’s conditions.
3.2 Individual License
An Individual License is assigned to a single specific individual user (Licensee) (e. g. one specific teacher) for that Licensee’s individual use for the term of the license, either limited or in perpetuity. Individual Licenses are non-transferable and may not be used by or reallocated to a different individual. Under an Individual License, the Seller grants to the Purchaser, for use by one Licensee, a non-exclusive, perpetual, irrevocable, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, worldwide, limited license to use the Content for the purposes and under the conditions described below. The Seller may grant additional rights at their discretion.
As a Seller of Content, you are permitting the Purchaser of your Content to:
- a) Use the Content for personal, educational, and instructional use only (Personal Use), for individual study, and to teach students.
- b) Print and make copies of downloadable Content as necessary for Personal Use. Copies may be made and provided to students, classroom aides, and substitute teachers as necessary. Copies may also be made for students’ parents, classroom observers, supervisors, or school administrators for review purposes only. Hard goods and video Content may not be copied, shared, or otherwise reproduced.
Unless otherwise expressly permitted by the Seller:
- a) You, the Licensee, may not use the Content, in part or in whole, for commercial purposes. This means you cannot re-sell it, use it for advertising or marketing purposes, or use it in any other way that creates a profit or benefit to you.
- b) You may not post or otherwise make the Content available on any website.
- c) You may not share, send, sell, sublicense, or transfer the Content to someone else for their own Personal Use unless you purchase an additional license for each additional individual you will share it with. Each Individual License is for use by one person only.
C2 cannot guarantee continuous access to any Content through our Site. For example, if at any time, C2 stops hosting Content for any reason or you or C2 terminates, suspends, downgrades, or otherwise limits your Account or access to C2’s Site, your ability to access the Content through our Site may be terminated. It is your responsibility to maintain and store a copy of downloadable Content on your device to ensure future access.

- Payment, Earnings, & Payouts
We may offer a variety of payment methods to facilitate purchases, such as a credit and debit card, PayPal Account, or other methods. We accept payments in United States Dollars (USD) only. We may change or add to our accepted payment methods at any time and we are not obligated to accept payment by any means other than those accepted at the time of your purchase.
When you list Content or make a purchase on the C2 online marketplace, you agree that all sales are considered final and nonrefundable once an order is submitted. We may, in our sole discretion, modify our Refund Policy or, on a case-by-case basis, issue a refund for a reason that falls outside of our normally accepted Refunds. Sellers may authorize a full or partial refund for any reason by contacting us.
When you purchase Content on the C2 marketplace, you represent and warrant that you are authorized to make the purchase and to use the payment method and billing information you have provided. You further agree that C2 may charge your payment method the amount due, which will be in U. S. Dollars. We are not responsible for any additional fees you may be charged by your financial institution such as international transaction fees or overdraft fees. Payment for purchases by Sellers for certain C2 marketplace or promotional Sites may be collected through a deduction from the Seller’s next Earnings Payout, or by credit or debit card if your current unpaid earnings are not enough to cover the purchase price.
Failure to pay as promised may result in late fees being charged, Content being removed from your Account, Account suspension or closure, or any other action we deem necessary. If we receive notice that you have disputed a charge related to a Content purchase made from your C2 Account, we may, at our sole discretion, offer proof to challenge the dispute. Pending resolution of the dispute, we may remove the purchased Content from your Account temporarily, or, if a refund is ultimately issued, permanently. At our discretion, we may take further action against your Account.
Sellers retain 70% of the list price of each Content they sell through our marketplace, which represents the Seller’s earnings, less any transaction fees that may apply, and increased by the full amount of any shipping and handling fees charged. Earnings are paid in monthly Payouts according to the schedule described in this Section.
To issue Payouts, we work with third-party companies that process and transfer funds between us and you, the Sellers (Payments). To receive Payouts, Sellers must have an Account capable of receiving payments with a supported Payment Site (Payout Account). The provider we currently work with is Paypal. If you have questions about the status of your Payout Account, please reach out directly to the Payment Site you use. If you are unable to register a Payout Account with any of the supported Payment Sites, we may consider alternative means of issuing Payouts at our discretion on a case-by-case basis. We make no guarantees about the Site offered by any third-party companies including the current or any future Payment Site we may support, and we are not responsible for any payment delays or other complications caused by the Payment Site. We may, at our discretion, modify the list of supported Payment Sites at any time, discontinue support for an existing Payout Site, or make additional Payout options available.
We issue Payouts on a monthly basis by the 15th day of the month following the month in which a sale was made. For example, Earnings related to a sale made in the month of January will be paid as part of a monthly Payout issued by February 15th. We may, at our sole discretion, withhold or delay a Payout due to any Seller who we believe to be in violation of any of these T&C. After the matter is resolved, we will either refund the withheld sales or complete the Payout.
5.7 Payment Site Fees
Payment Site may assess transaction fees when we transfer your Payouts to you. We will deduct from your Payout an amount equal to or less than the transaction fee assessed to us by the Payment Site. These transaction fees are subject to change at the discretion of the Payment Site. We are not responsible for any additional fees or taxes you may incur from other third parties related to receiving or accessing your Payouts.
5.8 Sales Tax
You are responsible for the collection and/or payment of any Sales Tax you may owe.
