  • You need an account for most activities on our platform. Keep your password somewhere safe, because you’re responsible for all activity associated with your account. If you suspect someone else is using your account, let us know by contacting us at info@papervideo.com. You must have reached the age of consent for online services in your country to use PaperVideo.
  • You may not share your account login credentials with anyone else. You are responsible for what happens with your account and PaperVideo will not intervene in disputes between students or instructors who have shared account login credentials. You must notify us immediately upon learning that someone else may be using your account without your permission (or if you suspect any other breach of security) by contacting us at info@papervideo.com. We may request some information from you to confirm that you are indeed the owner of your account.

2. Content Enrolment

2.1 Paid Courses

  • When you enroll in a course or other content created by Papervideo, you get a license from us to view it via the PaperVideo Services and no other use. Don’t try to transfer or resell content in any way. We generally grant you a lifetime access license, except when we must disable the content because of legal or policy reasons or for enrollments via Subscription Plans.
  • When instructors publish content on PaperVideo, they grant PaperVideo a license to offer a license to the content to students. This means that we have the right to sublicense the content to enrolled students. As a student, when you enroll in a course or other content, whether it’s free or paid content, you are getting a license from PaperVideo to view the content via the PaperVideo platform and Services, and PaperVideo is the licensor of record. Content is licensed, and not sold, to you. This license does not give you any right to resell the content in any manner (including by sharing account information with a purchaser or illegally downloading the content and sharing it on torrent sites).
  • Instructors may not grant licenses to their content to students directly, and any such direct license shall be null and void and a violation of these Terms.

2.2 Free Courses

  • We do not retain ownership of content we post as free courses, including videos, articles and discussion forums. 
  • The content which we post as free courses including videos, articles and discussion forums, is the property of the respective owners. By posting them as free courses, PaperVideo reuse and share it as free resources to provide free learning experience. 
  • When you use our Services, you will find links to other websites that we don’t own or control. We are not responsible for the content or any other aspect of these third-party sites, including their collection of information about you. You should also read their terms and conditions and privacy policies.

2.3 Community Discussion

3. Pricing, Payments and Refunds

3.1 Pricing

  • We occasionally run promotions and sales for our content, during which certain content is available at discounted prices for a set period of time. The price applicable to the content will be the price at the time you complete your purchase of the content (at checkout). Any price offered for particular content may also be different when you are logged into your account from the price available to users who aren’t registered or logged in, because some of our promotions are available only to new users.
  • If you are a student located in a country where use and sales tax, goods and services tax, or value added tax is applicable to consumer sales, we are responsible for collecting and remitting that tax to the proper tax authorities. Depending on your location, the price you see may include such taxes, or tax may be added at checkout.

3.2 Payments

  • PaperVideo works with payment service providers to offer you the most convenient payment methods in your country and to keep your payment information secure. We may update your payment methods using information provided by our payment service providers. Check out our Privacy Policy for more details.
  • When you make a purchase, you agree not to use an invalid or unauthorized payment method. If your payment method fails and you still get access to the content you are enrolling in, you agree to pay us the corresponding fees within thirty (30) days of notification from us. We reserve the right to disable access to any content for which we have not received adequate payment.
  • Instructor’s Payment:

The company expects Instructors to work with a high standard of initiative, efficiency, and economy. You are expected to follow the various company policies which include:

  • You will be paid only when the videos are finalized from our Moderator.
  • You need to complete the entire course within a month.
  • You will not be paid in case of partial completion of the course.

3.3 Refunds

  • If the content you purchased is not what you were expecting, you can request, within 30 days of your purchase of the content, that PaperVideo apply a refund to your account.
  • No refund is due to you if you request it after the 30-day guarantee time limit has passed. However, if the content you previously purchased is disabled for legal or policy reasons, you are entitled to a refund beyond this 30-day limit. 
  • PaperVideo also reserves the right to refund students beyond the 30-day limit in cases of suspected or confirmed account fraud.

4. Content and Behavior Rules

  • You can only use PaperVideo for lawful purposes. You’re responsible for all the content that you post on our platform.

  • If we are put on notice that your course or content violates the law or the rights of others (for example, if it is established that it violates intellectual property or image rights of others, or is about an illegal activity), if we discover that your content or if we believe your content or behavior is unlawful, inappropriate, or objectionable (for example if you impersonate someone else), we may remove your content from our platform. PaperVideo complies with copyright laws.

  • The content you post as a student or instructor (including courses) remains yours. By posting courses and other content, you allow PaperVideo to reuse and share it but you do not lose any ownership rights you may have over your content. 
  • When you post content, comments, questions, reviews, and when you submit to us ideas and suggestions for new features or improvements, you authorize PaperVideo to use and share this content with anyone, distribute it and promote it on any platform and in any media, and to make modifications or edits to it as we see fit.
