END OF TERMS OF SERVICE
SUPPLEMENTAL TERMS OF SERVICE
Classful is an online service that facilitates users (a “Funder”) contributing to teachers (the “Teacher”) and also to contribute to schools (the “School”) (collectively, the “Service”). The Service is operated from the website www.classful.com. The use of the Classful Service by a Teacher to raise money from Funders will be referred to as a “Teacher Campaign.” The use of the Classful Service by a School to raise money from Funders will be referred to as a “School Campaign.” These Supplemental Terms of Service govern the relationship between Classful and a Teacher or a School in relation to the Service.
In registering to use the Service, or during a Campaign, Teachers and Schools may be asked to provide information to Classful relevant to their Campaign. Teachers and Schools will provide this information promptly and in good faith, and provide all other assistance and information reasonable requested by Classful.
Classful will deduct its fee before transmitting the proceeds of a Campaign to you. Our standard rate of commission is 2.9% transaction processor fee + $0.30.
International payments and certain payment methods may give rise to higher payment processing costs. We will ensure that your proceeds from a Campaign are not lower than agreed on account of payment processing costs.
Prior to having received any payment from Classful in relation to any Campaign, you may cancel the Campaign at any time (Classful will be responsible for any refunds due to the Funder). However, if you have received payment from Classful in relation to a Campaign you wish to cancel, you are solely responsible for any refund that may be due to Funders up to the total amount you have received from Classful in relation to that Campaign.
Some contributions cannot be collected (for instance, when a Funder’s credit card expires before a contribution has been paid in full, and they do not provide updated payment information). Although Classful will make reasonable attempts to contact a Funder whose payment method is declined in order to rectify the issue, we cannot guarantee that the amount of the contribution you receive will be exactly equal to the target contribution amount minus Classful’s fee.
We do not make any guarantees with respect to the timing of receipt of funds, which may be subject to payment processing or other delays. Do not take any action in reliance on the receipt of funds until you are in receipt of cleared funds.
2.1. Payment in Relation to Teacher Campaigns
Classful will transfer the amount of the target contribution to the Teacher, at midnight following donation of the Funder’s contribution.
2.2. Payment in Relation to School Campaigns:
Classful will transfer the amount of the target contribution to the School, at midnight following donation of the Funder’s contribution.
2.3. Payment in Relation to PTO / PTA and other non-profit Campaigns:
Classful will transfer the amount of the target contribution to the PTO / PTA and other non-profit’s, at midnight following donation of the Funder’s contribution.
If the Teacher or the School wishes to receive payments other than as detailed above (“Special Payment Request”), Classful will assess each the request and will have sole discretion to decide whether the request is fulfilled. A Teacher or a School must send the Special Payment Request to the campaign manager one week in advance of desired delivery of the requested funds.
3. WITHDRAWAL BEFORE TARGET CONTRIBUTION REACHED
Teachers, Schools, and PTO / PTA and other non-profits may at any time before reaching their target contribution amount, but always with 30-days notice, withdraw from the Service and terminate their Campaign by contacting Classful at: [email protected] and providing explanation for withdrawal.
4. WITHDRAWAL AFTER TARGET CONTRIBUTION REACHED
Teachers and Schools who have reached their target contribution amount are committed to completing the project promised by its Campaign. If, for any reason, this is not possible the Teacher or the School must immediately inform Classful of this fact, and cooperate fully and in the utmost of good faith with Classful to address this situation in a way that is consistent with the interests of Classful, the teacher, and involved Funders.
5. DISBURSEMENT OF CONTRIBUTED FUNDS
Funds collected by Classful for a Campaign will be held in an account for the teacher. Classful will promptly make any contributions required by the Campaign in the Teacher’s name or the School’s name, and then disburse funds to cover the Teacher’s or the School’s project and associated expenses (including Classful’s fee for running the Campaign) directly to the service providers involved.
The Teacher or the School and Classful will agree together on which services providers are suitable for the Campaign requirements, and Classful will contract directly with these service providers for the Teacher’s or the School’s requirements. If Classful has reason to believe that Teacher will not fulfill their Campaign obligations, Classful may cease disbursement of funds for the Teacher or the School, and require that the Teacher or the School enter into discussions with Classful to address Classful’s concerns regarding the fulfillment of the Campaign obligations. If the Teacher or the School and Classful are unable to reach a satisfactory agreement regarding Teacher’s or School’s outstanding Campaign obligations, Classful may terminate the Campaign and refund contributions to Funders of the Campaign in proportion to the amounts remaining in the account for the Campaign. Interest on all funds held will accrue to the benefit of Classful.
6. CHARGEBACKS AND REFUNDS
If, for any reason, Classful is required to refund monies to Funders of a Campaign, the Teacher or the School will fully compensate Classful for the amount refunded as well as any associated costs, including but not limited to transaction or administrative costs.

END OF SUPPLEMENTAL TERMS OF SERVICE
CLASSFUL’S COPYRIGHT & DMCA POLICY
This policy explains how Classful responds to allegations of the unauthorized use of copyrighted images, text, or links to allegedly infringing materials under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”). [Summary of Act, Full Text]
Section 512 of the DMCA outlines the statutory requirements for formally reporting copyright infringement. It also explains how to challenge a notification of claimed infringement by submitting a counter-notice.
THINK LONG AND HARD BEFORE FILING A DMCA NOTIFICATION OR COUNTER-NOTICE
Please think carefully before submitting a claim or counter-notice, especially if you aren’t sure whether you are the actual rights holder or authorized to act on a rights holder’s behalf. There are legal and financial penalties for fraudulent and bad-faith claims. Please make sure you are the actual rights holder, or you have a good-faith belief that the material was removed in error and that you understand the repercussions of submitting a false claim.
DO YOU HAVE RIGHTS IN A COPYRIGHTED WORK?
If you aren’t sure whether you own the copyright in a particular work, please consult an attorney before sending a copyright notice to us. (Unfortunately, Classful can’t give you legal advice.)
HOW TO FILE A DMCA NOTICE
To submit a notice of claimed copyright infringement, you will need to provide us with the following information:
1. A physical or electronic signature (typing your full name will suffice) of the copyright owner or a person authorized to act on their behalf;
2. Identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed (e.g., a copy of or link to your original work or clear description of the materials allegedly being infringed upon);
3. Identification of the infringing material and information reasonably sufficient to permit Classful to locate the material on our website or services (e.g., a link to the infringing post);
4. Your contact information, including your address, telephone number, and email address;
5. A statement that you have a good-faith belief that the use of the material in the manner asserted is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and
6. A statement that the information in the notification is accurate and, under penalty of perjury, you are authorized to act on behalf of the copyright owner.
The Designated Copyright Agent to receive notifications and counter-notifications of claimed infringement can be reached as follows:
c/o Copyright Agent
6090 S Fort Apache Rd #110
Las Vegas, NV 89148
or via email to [email protected]
Under 17 U.S.C. § 512(f), you may be liable for any damages, including costs and attorneys’ fees incurred by us or our users, if you knowingly materially misrepresent that material or activity is infringing. If you aren’t sure whether the material you are reporting is infringing your rights, you should consult an attorney before sending us a copyright notification.
HOW CLASSFUL PROCESSES THE CLAIM
We process copyright notices in the order they are received. Please note that submitting duplicate DMCA notifications may cause delayed processing.
Classful’s response to alleged copyright infringement notices may include removing or restricting access to the allegedly infringing material.
Suppose we remove or restrict access to user content in response to a notice of an alleged infringement. In that case, Classful will make a good-faith effort to contact the affected account holder and provide information concerning the removal or restriction of access, including a copy of the takedown notice, along with instructions for filing a counter-notification.
Where appropriate, Classful may suspend and warn repeat violators, and in more severe cases, permanently terminate user accounts.
WHEN YOU RECEIVE A DMCA NOTIFICATION
If you receive a DMCA notification, it means that the content described in the notice has been removed from Classful or access to the content on Classful has been restricted. Please carefully read our notice to you, which includes information about the notification we received and instructions on how to file a counter-notice.
FILING A COUNTER-NOTICE
Suppose you received a DMCA notification about your material and believe that the material was misidentified or removed in error. In that case, you should file a counter-notice by following the instructions below.
Re-posting material removed in response to a DMCA notification may result in permanent account suspension. If you believe the content was removed in error, please file a counter-notice instead of reposting the material.
To submit a counter-notice, please provide us with the following information:
1. A physical or electronic signature (typing your full name will suffice);
2. Identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or access to it was disabled (the description from the DMCA notice will suffice);
3. A statement under penalty of perjury that you have a good-faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled; and
4. Your name, address, and telephone number, and a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the federal district court for the judicial district in which your address is located, or if your address is outside of the United States, for any judicial district in which Classful may be found, and that you will accept service of process from the person who provided the copyright notification or an agent of such person.
To submit a counter-notice, please respond to our original email notification of the removal and include the above information in your reply’s body.
AFTER YOU SUBMIT A COUNTER-NOTICE
When we receive a valid counter-notice, we will promptly forward a copy to the person who filed the original notification. Suppose we don’t receive notice within ten business days that the original reporter is seeking a court order to prevent further infringement of the material. In that case, we may replace or cease disabling access to the material that was removed.
REPEATED OFFENSES POLICY
This policy is to address repeat offenders of copyright infringement. When a copyright notice is filed effectively with Classful against a user regarding one or more pieces of allegedly infringing content, the user will receive one’ strike’ against their account. If the user gets three ‘strikes’ from the same or different copyright holders within one year, we will terminate the user’s account.
The following are the exceptions to this policy:
To submit a counter-notice, please provide us with the following information:
1. DMCA counter-notices and court actions are taken into consideration. If a DMCA counter-notice is filed by a user and is uncontested regarding the allegedly infringing material in question, the corresponding ‘strike’ will be removed from the user account. In the event a court action is filed to restrain the user from reposting the allegedly infringing material, we will wait for the outcome of the legal proceedings to determine if the ‘strike’ will be removed or not.
2. Retraction notices from the copyright holder or their agent will trigger the removal of the corresponding’ strike.’
3. Users who repost allegedly infringing material subject to prior notice or otherwise blatantly infringe others’ rights are subject to immediate deactivation.
4. Copyright holders (one or more) attempt to game the policy by submitting multiple notices on the same day or within a few days regarding content that the same user previously posted will be flagged. For the policy, we will count these reports as one’ strike’.
5. Shops and all other pages or profiles that are reported for infringement are reviewed on a case-by-case basis. When we receive an infringement claim, we evaluate how many accounts are managed by the user and the allegedly infringing material’s scope to determine if the behavior falls under the policy.
