18. Additional Terms for iSLCollective Supporting Membership

Updated on December 1, 2020

iSLCollective.com (also: “the Site”), a teaching material sharing platform owned and operated by iSLCollective Ltd., grants users the ability to upload their originally created language teaching materials to the Site, edit their uploads later, and download teaching resources from one another free of charge. While the services of the site can be used free of charge, you may choose to become an iSLCollective Supporting Member by making a donation to iSLCollective.com to help the site to continue hosting free teaching resources. Nominally, Supporting Memberships are for a period of one year. Payment is accepted in Euros by direct bank transfer, debit/credit card or by PayPal and can be initiated at https://en.islcollective.com/become_a_supporting_member. By purchasing the Supporting Membership, you acknowledge you have read and agree to the Supporting Membership Terms of Use herein.

Expiry of your Supporting Membership
If you choose to make a donation and become a Supporting Member, you understand that your Supporting Membership will nominally expire one year after the donation unless it is renewed during your active Membership period. Once your Supporting Membership has expired, your current account status will be changed back to “Free”.

Payment methods
The period of the Supporting Membership is for the duration of one year. You can make a donation payment at the beginning of your membership period by direct bank transfer, debit/credit card or by PayPal transfer. Our bank card payment processing partner is CCBill. 

1. PayPal

In case of using Paypal, the actual payment takes place on PayPal's secure site. 

2. Bank Card

Users can also pay securely with your debit or credit card on CCbill, the site of our international payment gateway partner. iSLCollective has chosen CCBill because it is well-known and trustworthy provider for processing electronic payments, which accepts the most commonly used credit and debit cards. By choosing this payment solution users will be redirected to a safe payment page. Here users can pay with their bank card as usual. It is important to emphasize that iSLCollective will have no information of the card data provided by users on CCBill. For more information please visit ccbill.com).


Membership Types 

1. Recurring donation

Users can choose to select a monthly amount to donate every month or they can make a one-time payment. Recurring payment means that a user authorizes islcollective.com to automatically charge his/her Paypal account or bank card every month on the monthly anniversary of the first payment - until the user cancels it. In either case, technically, users pay in their national currency, and iSLCollective's bank will exchange it. The currencies indicated in the payment box on https://en.islcollective.com/become_a_supporting_member are there only to give users a better idea of how much they are going to pay.


Supporting members can easily cancel their automatic monthly payments on PayPal.com in case of Paypal payments. In case of CCBill payments (iSLCollective's bank card payment processor), supporting members just have to reply to the payment confirmation email they have received by CCBill, and CCBill will cancel the supporting member's recurring payment typically within a few hours.

Recurring payment works both with PayPal and CCBill. A Supporting member's account will be upgraded to "iSLCollectve Sponsor" after successful payment as soon as your payment appears on the Paypal or bank account of iSLCollective Ltd. 

2. One-time donation

So-called "one-time" payments can also be made by users on iSLCollective.com - both via Paypal or CCBill, which means a single payment (which entails - as opposed to recurring payments - no authorization to iSLCollective to automatically charge the user again after one month).

After successful payment Supporting Members will be sent a confirmation of their donation via email.

The Supporting Membership status will be indicated to a donor in the supporting member's profile page as soon as the supporting member's payment appears on the Paypal or bank account of iSLCollective Ltd. 

Refund Policy
If, for any reasons, you decide to get a refund of your donation, you may ask for a refund. Refunds are handled on a case-by-case basis by our Support Team. If you have a refund request, please get in touch with us at info [at] islcollective [dot] com.

Limitation of Liability
The quality and reliability of the service provided by iSLCollective.com depends on external service providers, as well, for example our internet hosting provider. While we do our best to solve arising technical problems as soon as possible, we cannot guarantee continuous, uninterrupted or secure access to the Supporting Membership Services or the Site. When purchasing a Supporting Membership on iSLCollective.com, you acknowledge that the limitations of liability in Section 16. of the General Terms of Use apply to your Supporting Membership.

Termination of Supporting membership
iSLCollective users disbarred from using the site for violation of the iSLCollective.com Terms of Use will lose their Supporting Membership.

Prohibition of Transferability of Supporting Membership
If you choose to become the Supporting Membership you understand that your membership is personal to you and you may not sell, trade, transfer your account name and password or share these with others, including without limitation your co-workers. Any distribution by you of your account name and password to another person will result in cancellation of your iSLCollective.com Supporting Membership without a refund. You agree to immediately notify iSLCollective Ltd. of any unauthorized use of your iSLCollective.com account or any other breach of security that you gain knowledge of in relation to the Site.

Relating to matters not at all, or not entirely, or not otherwise regulated in the present Supporting Membership Terms of Use, the regulation of the iSLCollective.com General Terms of Use shall be applicable and governing.
