When you sign up to become an instructor on the WBHM platform, you agree to abide by these Advisor Terms (“Terms“).
As an advisor, you are an independent contractor with WBHM.
1. Approval or rejection of advisor application
The Owner reserves the right to approve or reject ANY Advisor Application in its sole and absolute discretion. You will have no legal recourse against the Owner for the rejection of the Advior Application.
2. Reasons for rejection
Without limiting the right to reject any application for any reason whatsoever in the Owner’s absolute discretion, your application will be rejected if it is not complete or if your course contains images or content that is not acceptable to Owner or is inconsistent with the image that the Owner wishes to create in association with its website, or if your course contains any illegal, immoral, repulsive, defamatory, derogatory, harassing, harmful, threatening, obscene, vulgar, pornographic, racial or ethnic objectionable materials, depicts sexual situations, promotes discrimination on the basis of race, sex, sexual preference, national origin, ethnicity, nationality, disability, religious preference, or if your course contains any material that appears to Owner to violate any patent, trademark, copyright, trade secret, confidential information, or other property rights of any other party.
3. Termination after acceptance
Even after the Owner has accepted you as an Advisor member, the Owner reserves the absolute right to rescind or terminate your status for any reason in its sole and absolute discretion, including but not limited to the reasons set forth above.
You will forfeit all right to receive past commissions that may have accrued to you if this Agreement is terminated as a result of your failure to comply with the terms of this Agreement or any policies and procedures of Advisor Program that may be established and amended by the Owner in its discretion from time to time. If this Agreement is terminated for any other reason, you will have a right to receive its accrued commissions through the effective date of termination; provided, that if your total commissions due hereunder meet the minimum payment requirements set as part of this Agreement. The Owner has the right to withhold final commission payments for sufficient time in order to assure that the amount paid to you is accurate and not subject to later adjustment for returns or any other reason. If following final payment the Owner determines that the amount of commissions that you were paid was too high, as a result of subsequent returns or any other adjustment or reason, the differential shall be a debt from you to the Owner and the Owner shall have all legal right to receive a refund of such overpaid commission from you.

7.1 Price Setting
When creating a course, you will select a base price (“Base Price“) for your course.
7.2 Transaction Taxes
If a student purchases a product that requires WBHM to remit national, state, or local sales or use taxes, value-added taxes (VAT), or other similar transaction taxes (“Transaction Taxes“), under applicable law, we will collect and remit those Transaction Taxes to the competent tax authorities for those sales. We may increase the sale price at our discretion where we determine that such taxes may be due.
8.1 Revenue Share
When a student purchases your course, we calculate the gross amount of the sale as the amount actually received by WBHM from the student (“Gross Amount“). From this, we subtract any Transaction Taxes and calculate the net amount of the sale (“Net Amount“).
WBHM makes all instructor payments in U.S. dollars (USD).
Instructors will receive 40% of the net amount of the sale.
8.2 Receiving Payments
You must have a PayPal account in good standing in order to get paid. You must also provide any identifying information or tax documentation (such as a W-9 or W-8) necessary for 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.
Commissions will be paid to you on the 1st on a monthly basis, 30 days after the end of the month in which payments are made. Ex. If a sale occurs on July 10th, the affiliate will receive the payment on September 1st. This is due to the 30day return policy. The Owner does not guarantee an exact date of calculation of commissions or payments. All payments will be made via PayPal to you as provided by you in your Application. The Owner does not send payment if the total commission due to you is not at least [ENTER MININUM PAYMENT AMOUNT]. Amounts below [amount] will accrue to your account and payment will be made for the month when your total commissions achieve the minimum [amount]. The Owner reserves the right to amend the minimum commission payment amount at any time.
If a student asks for a refund after we have paid the relevant advisor payment, we reserve the right to either (1) deduct the amount of the refund from the next payment sent to the advisor (2) where no further payments are due to the advisor or the payments are insufficient to cover the refunded amounts, require the instructor to refund any amounts refunded to students for the advisor’s courses.
All parties who make purchases through the Owner’s website, regardless of whether they may have reached its website through your affiliate link, are deemed to be the Owner’s customers and not your customers relative to the Owner’s products and services. The Owner will have the right to contact these customers and send future marketing offers to them. You will have no right to commissions on subsequent purchases that may be made by these customers, except for subsequent purchases that may be traced at the time of purchase through your affiliate links and commission from your courses. Additionally, all such customers and purchases will be subject to the Owner policies, procedures, rules and regulations and you have no right or authority to amend or offer any different offers relative to the purchase of products from the Owner’s website. The Owner, however, reserves the right to amend any of its terms, conditions, policies, procedures, pricing, payment policies, collection policies, and all other items relative to the Owner’s business and sale of products at any time in its sole discretion.
You hereby indemnify and holds the Owner, and all of the Owner stockholders, officers, directors, employees, contractors, affiliates, agents, successors and assigns harmless from and against any and all claims, liabilities, damages, actions, causes of action, suits, threats, demands, settlements, including all costs and attorney fees related thereto, that the Owner may incur and which are based in whole or in part upon your participation in the Affiliate Program, any claims that any of the your trademarks and other proprietary material infringe upon the rights of any other party, your breach of any term, covenants, condition, representation or warranty contained in this Agreement or any policies of participation in the Affiliate Program, or any claim related directly or indirectly to your use, operation or the content of your website.
11. Limitation of liabilities

FURTHERMORE, THE OWNER SHALL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR AND HEREBY DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL WARRANTIES RELATED TO ITS WEBSITE, THE ADVISOR PROGRAM, YOUR PARTICIPATION IN THE ADVISOR PROGRAM, YOUR ABILITY TO MAKE ANY COMMISSIONS OR OTHERWISE PROFIT THROUGH PARTICIPATION IN THIS PROGRAM, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO ANY WARRANTIES OF FITNESS FOR ANY PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR MERCHANTABILITY, NON-INFRINGEMENT, OR ANY CLAIM MADE BASED UPON THE OWNER’S COURSE OF DEALING OR USAGE OF TRADE. THE OWNER DOES NOT REPRESENT OR WARRANT THAT ITS WEBSITE OR ANY APPLICATION, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO ITS LINK TRACKING FEATURES, WILL BE ERROR-FREE OR THAT THEY WILL FUNCTION WITHOUT INTERRUPTION.
THE OWNER SHALL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DIRECT OR INDIRECT DAMAGES OR LIABILITIES OF ANY NATURE, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, INDIRECT, OR SPECIAL DAMAGES, LOST PROFITS, LOST BUSINESS OPPORTUNITY OR ANY OTHER DAMAGES; REGARDLESS OF WHETHER THE OWNER WAS OR HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF THE SAME AND TOOK NO ACTION TO PREVENT THE SAME.
