The users must at all times (i) keep confidential and not disclose to any person any of the Confidential Information and (ii) only use such Confidential Information for the purposes of performing obligations under these Terms.

By creating the Educator Account or Arts Organization Account and providing the details of an entity that you work for, cooperate with or are affiliated with, you confirm that you are an authorised employee, contractor, or affiliate of that entity and you have the necessary rights and authorisation to act on behalf of that entity. We are not responsible in any manner and bear no liability for your activities carried out through COMMON TIME without such authorisation. We insist the users of COMMON TIME to (i) obtain appropriate insurance related to the services provided by them and (ii) make sure that the terms and conditions of the insurance policy do not contravene to these Terms.
3.1 The Fees. When the Educators make bookings of the Lessons, the Educators will pay the service fees indicated by the Provider chosen by the Educator (the “Fees”) in accordance with Provider’s individual pricing policy. Once the Educator makes a payment for the Fees, the Fees shall be reserved by COMMON TIME in Educator’s account until the Provider approves the booking. The Fees shall be deducted from Educator’s account as soon as the Provider approves Educator’s booking. Should the Educator's payment method be rejected or payment cancelled for any reason whatsoever, the Educator’s booking shall not be reserved and will automatically expire. The Providers are entitled, but have no obligation, to provide discounts for the Fees. The discounts will be clearly indicated on COMMON TIME. The Fees paid by the Educators through COMMON TIME constitute the entire amount payable for the Lessons and the Providers must not charge the Educators any additional Fees for the said services, unless agreed otherwise by the Educators and the Providers, upon notification to us.
3.2 The Commission. Providers’ use of COMMON TIME is subject to the commission fees payable by the Providers to the Company representing a percentage of the Fees payable by the Educator for each Lesson through COMMON TIME (the “Commission”). The standard Commission rate is 15%; the Commission may vary (for more information, please refer to: https://commontime.online/membership/. The Commission rates and payment terms related thereto are made available on COMMON TIME or communicated to the users personally. The Commission is deducted automatically from Providers’ accounts after the payment of the respective Fees is made by the Educators. By concluding a service contract with us, the Providers agree to pay the Commission for each booking made by the Educators and all Fees payable by the Educators in accordance with these Terms and the terms and conditions in force at the moment the Educators conclude the service contract. The Commission rates remain valid (i) for as long as they are indicated on COMMON TIME or (ii) for the time period communicated to the users. The Commission rates are subject to a change without a prior notice. Any changes to the Commission rates will be made available to the users and, if necessary, we will request the Providers to provide their consent to the amendments of the Commission rates. The Providers are solely responsible for (i) defining the charges applicable to the services provided by them and (ii) communicating such charges to us; such charges will be subject to the Commission as provided above and the Fees featured on COMMON TIME to the Educators shall include Providers’ service charges and the Commission.
3.3 Taxes. The Fees exclude all applicable taxes (e.g., VAT and sales taxes), levies, or duties imposed by taxing authorities. Unless otherwise stated in the schedule of the Fees, you are responsible for paying all applicable taxes, levies, and duties, including the tax applicable to the services provided by you under the Booking Contract (as defined below), and excluding local taxes based solely on Company’s income.
3.4 Transfer of funds. If you use COMMON TIME as the Provider, you are requested to approve the booking requests made by the Educator through COMMON TIME within 24 hours from the Educator’s booking request. After you approve Educator’s booking, we will authorise the Fees in the Educator’s Account. If no approval is made by you within the specified period of time, you will receive a notice about your failure to approve the booking. If no approval is received within the given period of time or the approval fails due to any other reason, (i) the booking request will automatically expire, (ii) the Educator will be notified about the cancellation of the booking request, and (iii) no Fees shall be deducted from the Educator’s Account for the cancelled booking. After you approve the booking request, we will send you a confirmatory email containing the information about the approved booking and the respective Educator will be charged the applicable Fees. After completion of the Lessons, we will transfer the funds generated by you (i.e., the Fees minus the Commission payable to us) to your Account within 1 week from the completed Lesson. You acknowledge and agree that: (i) any payment made by the Educator to you through COMMON TIME shall be considered as payment by the Educator directly to you; (ii) you will not charge the Educator any additional fees for the booked Lessons, unless agreed otherwise between the Educator and you; (iii) we accept payments from the Educators as your limited payment collection agent; (iv) our obligation to pay you is subject to and conditional upon successful completion of the booked trainings and receipt of the associated payments of the Fees from the Educators; and (v) we are not responsible for transferring you the funds that have not been successfully obtained from the Educators. Any Fees paid by the Educators to the Providers in relation to the Booking Contracts (as defined below), excluding the Commission and other applicable charges, will be transferred, without undue delay after the booked Lessons are completed, to the respective Provider's account by using a third-party payment processor. The Providers are responsible for paying any and all applicable transfer costs charged by the Payment Processor (as defined below). The Providers acknowledge and agree that we are entitled to charge the Commission on any of the service fees indicated by the Providers; such Commission will be deducted by us before transferring any funds.
3.5 Technical steps to conclude a service contract.
3.5.1 The Educators. If you would like to conclude a service contract with us as the Educator, you need to: (i) register your Account; (ii) choose the Provider that you would like to book; (iii) provide the required payment information; and (iv) click on the button “Book and Checkout”. You will be able to identify and correct any input errors prior to clicking on the “Book and Checkout” button. After you click on the button “Book and Checkout” and the Provider approves your booking, we will pre-authorise the Fees through the payment method chosen by you and send you a confirmatory email informing you about your booking. All further communication between the Educator and the Providers should be carried through COMMON TIME. By clicking on the button “Book and Checkout” and receiving the confirmatory email, you conclude a service contract in English between you and us on the basis of these Terms. Please note that the service contract concluded between you and us under these Terms governs your booking transaction only. The provision of the services by the Providers is governed by a separate contract between you and the respective Providers (please refer to Section 5 for more information).
3.5.2 The Providers. If you would like to conclude a service contract with us as the Provider, you need to register your Account and provide the required personal data. You will be able to identify and correct any input errors prior to clicking on the “Join CommonTime” button or later, through the dashboard of your Account. We will send you a confirmatory email informing you about the registration of your Account. By receiving the confirmatory email, you conclude a service contract in English between you and us on the basis of these Terms and agree to your obligations stated therein, including the provisions of this Section 3. Please note that the service contract concluded between you and us under these Terms governs your use of COMMON TIME only. The provision of any services by you as the Provider is governed by a separate contract between you and the respective Educator (please refer to Section 5 for more information).
3.5.3 The details of the specific service contract will not be filed by us and, therefore, the specific contract will not be available to you. However, if you do require any information regarding your order, you can consult your Account or contact us by using the contact details mentioned at the end of the Terms. We warrant that the services supplied under a service contract are of a reasonably acceptable quality.
3.6 Right of withdrawal. We respect consumer rights and comply with the applicable consumer protection laws. If you use COMMON TIME as the Educator who is a consumer (i.e., you act wholly or mainly outside the scope of your trade, business, or profession), you have the right to withdraw from the service contract with us within the period of 14 days after the service contract was concluded, unless the provision of the services was completed by us. In order to terminate the service contract and receive a refund, you must inform us of your decision to withdraw from the contract by email? If you have already used our services (e.g., participated in the Lessons) prior to communicating your desire to withdraw from the service contract with us, we reserve the right to charge you proportionally for the services used and return the Fees paid for the unused services only (if any). If you have fully used all services for which the service contract was concluded, you cannot exercise your right of withdrawal. We will refund the Fees by using our third-party payment processor, unless you have expressly requested otherwise. In any case, you will not incur any fees as a result of the refund. If you act as a business, trader, or use COMMON TIME for professional purposes, you are not entitled to exercise your right of withdrawal; please refer to Section 4 of the Terms for more information on cancellation and refunds applicable to you.
3.7 Payment processing. All payments related to COMMON TIME, including payment of the Fees, payouts to the Providers, and refunds, are processed by our third-party payment processors Stripe and PayPal (collectively, the “Payment Processors”). The Payment Processors are solely responsible for handling your payments. You agree not to hold us liable for payments that do not reach us or the Providers because you have quoted incorrect payment information or the Payment Processors refused the payment for any other reason. Please note that the Payment Processors may collect from you some personal data, which will allow them to make the payments requested by you (e.g., your name, credit card details, payment account information, or any other required personal data). The Payment Processors handle all the steps in the payment process on their websites, including data collection and data processing. For the payment service agreements and policies applicable to your payments, please refer to https://stripe.com or https://www.paypal.com.
3.8 Invoices. The invoices for the Fees paid by you (the “Invoices”) and any payments charged by us, including the Commissions, are generated automatically and can be reviewed and downloaded through your Account. Please make sure that all information in respect to your Account is accurate and up-to-date so that the Invoices could be generated correctly. We accept no responsibility if the Invoices are erroneous due to your failure to comply with these Terms.

5.4 By concluding the Booking Contracts through COMMON TIME, the Educator acknowledges and agrees that the Educator is purchasing services from the respective Provider and not directly from us, and the Provider is solely responsible for delivering those services.

Although we vet the Providers to the best of our ability and request the Providers to submit truthful, accurate, and up-to-date information regarding their expertise, professional experience, training, and availability schedule, we strongly encourage the Educators not to conclude any Booking Contracts if the Educators have any doubts or concerns pertaining to the Providers.

To ensure that the Educators are satisfied with their use of COMMON TIME, we provide the Educators with a possibility to rebook another Lesson, if the Educator wishes to cancel the booked Lesson prior to the approval of the Provider (the Providers are required to respond to your booking inquiries within 24 hours). The Lesson cancelled by the Educator can be rebooked with the same or alternative Provider. In the event the same or alternative Provider is unavailable for rebooking, a refund may be applied in extenuating circumstances. We reserve the right, but are under no obligation, to issue refunds on a case-by-case basis. If the Educator is eligible for a refund, we will issue a refund equal to the pre-authorized Fees (if any) for the respective booking within commercially reasonable time, but no later than 14 days. Please note that the Commission is not refundable and may be deducted from the refunded Fees. We will refund the Fees by using the Payment Processor used by the Educator initially.
Cancellation by the Provider. If you use COMMON TIME as the Educator and your booking is cancelled by the Provider, we will provide you with a list of alternative Providers for further booking, subject to the applicable Fees. If you do not accept any of the alternative Providers proposed by us or no Providers are available, no Fees will be charged to you or a refund shall be issued at our sole discretion.
Cancellation of the Lessons by the Provider. If you use COMMON TIME as the Provider and you cancel Educator’s booking after the confirmation of the booking and no reasonable extenuating circumstances are provided by you, the amount equal to the Commission for the respective booking will be debited from your Account or, if no sufficient funds are available in your Account, we will submit a request to charge your payment method. Moreover, we reserve the right to charge you a penalty, in our sole discretion, or take other corrective measures, including, but not limited to, (i) publishing information about the cancelled booking on your Account, (ii) limiting or disabling your access to the calendar of COMMON TIME for further bookings for a limited period of time (e.g., for a period of the cancelled training), or (iii) suspending or disabling your use of COMMON TIME. You will be notified about the potential penalties or corrective measures prior to canceling the confirmed Educator’s bookings. We reserve the right but are no under any obligation to take into account the extenuating circumstances related to the Educator’s booking cancelled by you. We reserve the right to review all cancellations made by the Providers and decide, at our sole discretion, what corrective measures should be taken. The respective Providers shall be informed about our decision and the applied corrective measures no later than 14 days. If you do not approve Educator’s booking, the booking request will automatically expire and the Educator will be notified about your cancellation of the booking request. In such a case, no Fees shall be deducted from the Educator Account for the cancelled booking and no Commission will be charged to you.
Consumer right of withdrawal. We respect consumer rights and comply with the applicable consumer protection laws. If you use COMMON TIME as the Educator who is a consumer (i.e., you act wholly or mainly outside the scope of your trade, business, or profession), you have the right to withdraw from the service contract with us within the period of 14 days after the service contract was concluded, unless the provision of the services was completed by us. In order to terminate the service contract and receive a refund, you must inform us of your decision to withdraw from the contract by email. If you have already used our services (e.g., participated in the Lessons) prior to communicating your desire to withdraw from the service contract with us, we reserve the right to charge you proportionally for the services used and return the Fees paid for the unused services only (if any). If you have fully used all services for which the service contract was concluded, you cannot exercise your right of withdrawal. We will refund the Fees by using our third-party payment processor. In any case, you will not incur any fees as a result of the refund. If you act as a business, trader, or use COMMON TIME for professional purposes, you are not entitled to exercise your right of withdrawal.
Limitation of liability. Neither the Company nor the Providers shall be liable to the Educator for the bookings that are cancelled due to the circumstances outside Company’s or Providers’ reasonable control, such as the force majeure events, including, but not limited to: acts of God; strikes; work stoppages; accidents; acts of war or terrorism; civil or military disturbances; nuclear or natural catastrophes and interruptions; and shortage of supply, breakdowns, loss or malfunctions of utilities and communications or computer (software and hardware) services. This Policy does not apply to cancellations occurring in such circumstances.
