ShowMe is free for users wanting to browse, view and download free tutorials, and is free for users posting tutorials through our Basic level account. Users wanting additional features may upgrade to our Premium account for $5.99 per month for month-to-month access, or $49.99 for 12 months of access, paid in advance. Academic institutions may also sign up for our School Premium account for $1,500 per year, billed in advance. A summary of features for each account level is available on our Pricing Page www.showme.com/pricing and is subject to change at any time, though if you have already submitted payment for a monthly package, you will have access for the month purchased at the rate then charged. If you have purchased an annual plan, we will honor the price until the end of that annual term. Your access to the ShowMe Service will thereafter be charged at the new rate. Payment for the ShowMe Service shall be made using a major credit card. If you fail to make a payment, or credit card payment is declined, returned, or refused by your credit card company, then you will lose access to certain functionality of the ShowMe Service or sections of the Website.
Users may sign up to sell tutorials, rather than to offer them for free (“Premium Tutorials”). Premium Tutorials may consist of a lesson (single tutorial) or a course (a collection of lessons).
Buyers of paid tutorials pay no membership fee to access the paid tutorials, but only pay for the actual tutorial content they wish to receive. The price for a single Paid Tutorial lesson is $1.99, and the price of a Premium Tutorial course is $9.99. The price does not include any applicable sales tax that may be charged at the time of purchase. These prices are subject to change at any time by Learnbat in its sole discretion.
In consideration for the services provided through the ShowMe Service, you, as a seller of Premium Tutorials agree to pay Learnbat a service fee (the “Service Fee”) for all Premium Tutorials you sell through the ShowMe Service as follows: (i) for Paid Tutorials lessons, you will pay Learnbat $0.99 of the $1.99 purchase price; and (ii) for Paid Tutorial courses, you will pay Learnbat $4.99 of the $9.99 purchase price. The Service Fee is subject to change by Learnbat at any time in its sole discretion.
For each transaction, Learnbat will automatically deduct the ShowMe Service Fee from the sale price collected from buyers through the ShowMe Service, and then will distribute the remaining amounts to the applicable seller’s account. If you are in breach of these Terms, Learnbat reserves the right, according to its sole discretion, to withhold any funds that would otherwise be due to you under these Terms, and either keep those funds permanently, or refund them to the buyers who purchased Premium Tutorial from you. Funds will be held in your account until you request to transfer any or all of the money accumlated in your account to an external account (e.g. PayPal or an online checking account). Learnbat will charge a fee for making each Monthly Payout that is equal to but not more than the cost to Learnbat from its respective payment processors for making such balance transfers. This fee is subject to change at the discretion of the payment processors, and will be taken directly out of your monthly payout.
You shall not, and shall not permit any other person to, access or use the ShowMe Service or materials made available through the ShowMe Service (the “Materials”) except as expressly permitted by these Terms.

LICENSE TO LEARNBAT: As between you and Learnbat, you own the ShowMe tutorials ("tutorials") that you submit to the ShowMe Service. By submitting a tutorial, you grant Learnbat and its affiliates a limited, worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free license and right to copy, transmit, distribute, publicly perform and display (through all media now known or hereafter created), and make derivative works from your tutorial for the purpose of (i) displaying the tutorial within the ShowMe Service; (ii) displaying the tutorial on third party websites and applications through a video embed or ShowMe’s API; (iii) allowing other users to play and download the tutorial; (iii) promoting the ShowMe Service; and (iv) archiving or preserving the tutorials for disputes, legal proceedings, or investigations.
LICENSE TO OTHER USERS: You further grant all users of the ShowMe Service permission to view your tutorials for their personal, non-commercial purposes. This includes the right to copy and make derivative works from the tutorials solely to the extent necessary to view the tutorials. The foregoing licenses are in addition to any license you may decide to grant (e.g., a Creative Commons license).
DURATION OF LICENSES: The above licenses will continue unless and until you remove your tutorials from the ShowMe Service, in which case the licenses will terminate within a commercially reasonable period of time. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the license for legal archival/preservation purposes will continue indefinitely. Please note that removed tutorials may be cached in search engine indices after removal and that Learnbat has no control over such caching.
By listing an item for sale, or uploading it to the ShowMe Service, you represent and warrant to prospective buyers that you have the right and ability to sell such item, and that the listing is accurate, current, and complete and is not misleading or otherwise deceptive. You further represent and warrant that the Premium Tutorial, and use of the same will not infringe any right – including, but not limited to the copyright or trademark right – of any third party. You agree that the entire product being sold must be contained within the ShowMe lesson or course offered, and that no part of such digital Premium Tutorial will be delivered separately or require an additional purchase, for example via a third-party website or other channel.
When you (as a buyer) purchase a Premium Tutorial you will have the ability to download the lesson or course from your My Purchases page for as long as the Materials are available through the ShowMe Service. We may, in our sole discretion, make original digital Premium Tutorial you purchase available indefinitely, but your access to such Materials through your My Purchases page may be disabled if the Material is removed from the ShowMe Service, for example, by the original seller as a result of the original seller’s account being closed or the Materials being removed in response to an intellectual property complaint or Digital Millennium Copyright Act notification. For this reason, we encourage you to download any original digital Premium Tutorial you may purchase, and to backup those Materials accordingly. Learnbat cannot restore access to, or provide copies of, purchased Materials that have been removed from the ShowMe Service.
You agree not to share your purchases with other people unless they have also purchased the content. You agree not to post your purchased or downloaded Premium Tutorial on the Internet.
You agree to pay in full for all Premium Tutorial purchased through the ShowMe Service, and agree that Learnbat may charge your credit card, PayPal or other account for any Premium Tutorial purchased, including any applicable shipping charges, and for any additional amounts (including any taxes and late fees, as applicable) as may be accrued to or in connection with your member account.
YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE TIMELY PAYMENT OF ALL SALES PRICES AND FEES, AND FOR PROVIDING LEARNBAT WITH VALID CREDIT CARD INFORMATION OR PAYPAL ACCOUNT DETAILS FOR PAYMENTS OF ALL SUCH FEES AND CHARGES.
You agree that electronic delivery of the Premium Tutorial to you, whether by streaming or your downloading to you device, does not transfer to you any commercial or promotion use rights in the Premium Tutorial. You agree that your use of the ShowMe Service (including your purchase of Premium Tutorial) constitutes your acceptance of and agreement to use the ShowMe Service and such Premium Tutorial solely in accordance with this Agreement, and that any other use of the ShowMe Service or Premium Tutorial may violate copyright and other laws of the United States, other countries, as well as applicable state laws, and you may be subject to liability for such unauthorized use.

In order to access and retain your electronic records, you may be required to have certain hardware and software, which are your sole responsibility.
All digital product sales are final, and no refunds are available.
Learnbat may in its sole discretion make certain exceptions to this policy on a case-by-case basis, for example if: (a) a digital file is defective; or (b) a product description is materially deceptive or misleading. If such an exception is made, Learnbat may issue to the buyer a refund for such purchase in any manner it deems appropriate, including without limitation in the form of store credit.
As a buyer, it is your responsibility to determine that you have the appropriate hardware/software to make use of digital files, that the file format is appropriate for your needs, and that the content you are purchasing is legal and noninfringing. No refunds are available in these cases. Tutorials removed from the ShowMe Service due to a complaint of copyright/trademark infringement, or for any other reason, are not eligible for a refund.
If Learnbat elects to issue a refund to a buyer, the amount refunded will be deducted from the seller’s next monthly payout, provided however that if the seller’s next monthly payout is less than the refund amount(s), Learnbat may charge such refund amount(s) to the seller’s credit card, PayPal account, or other payment processor account.
We may terminate or suspend your account and bar access to the ShowMe Service immediately, without prior notice or liability, under our sole discretion, for any reason whatsoever and without limitation, including but not limited to a breach of these Terms.
If you wish to terminate your account, you may simply discontinue using the ShowMe Service.
