Welcome to Signal2 Market

1. Hi, we’re Signal2 and welcome! We’re happy to have you here and we hope you enjoy your stay. When we say ‘we’, ‘us’ or ‘Signal2 ’ it’s because that’s who we are and we own and run the Signal2 Market sites.

2. Signal2 ’s ecosystem of digital marketplaces helps millions of people around the world get creative and earn online. When you create an account and accept these terms you become a member of our community. You will have an Signal2 Market account that will allow you to buy and sell items like the ones found on the Signal2 Market sites and make other related transactions.

3. The Signal2 Market sites are platforms that allow members to buy and sell licenses to use digital items like website themes, production music, motion graphics project files, software code, vectors, images and much, much more. On Signal2 Market, buyers and authors (sellers) transact with each other directly and we provide the platform to allow the transactions to happen. If you have an Signal2 Market account, any transactions are logged on your member’s statement, which records the payments made by you to authors via Signal2 Market (as a buyer) and by buyers via Signal2 Market to you (as an author).

4. The items on Signal2 Market are owned by the authors, not by us. The items on Signal2 Market are uploaded at the direction of the author. We provide the platform services; we do not take ownership of the items.

5. During your time with us you agree to follow the ground rules outlined in these terms so please read and understand them. If you don’t accept the terms then we’ll be sad, but you will need to leave because your presence on and use of the Signal2 Market sites is conditional on your acceptance to be bound by these terms and the Acceptable Use Policy whether you become a member or not.

How browsing and membership works

6. Browsing: You need to be 16 years or over to browse the Signal2 Market sites. We don’t knowingly collect any information from anyone aged 16 or under. When browsing the sites you agree to follow our guidelines or instructions and keep in mind that these terms apply to any use of our Signal2 Market sites whether or not you’re a member.

Membership

7. Age: You need to be 18 years or over to become a member or to buy items. If you’re under 18 you will need to get a parent or guardian to buy items or use the account of a parent or legal guardian who is at least 18 years of age, with their permission, and this adult will be responsible for all your activities.

8. Signal2 Account: Membership is free. When you become a member you get an Signal2 Market account that is accessible from any of our Signal2 Market sites (and is also your Signal2 account for other Signal2 services). Your membership will allow you to ‘buy’ (license) items from authors, participate in our online forums, and generally contribute to our ecosystem of Signal2 Market sites that help people get creative. Membership also gives you the opportunity to become an author or earn referral income.

9. Your responsibility: You promise that information you give us is true, accurate and complete and, if you sign up for an Signal2 Market account, that you will keep your account information up-to-date (including a current email address). Your membership is not transferable, that means you cannot sell your account. You are responsible for any use of the Signal2 Market sites including any activity that occurs in conjunction with your username and password, if you have an Signal2 Market account, so keep your password secure and don’t let any other person use your username or password. If you realise there’s any unauthorized use of your password or any breach of security you need to let us know immediately. You must not use a virtual private network or VPN or any other means to avoid compliance with these terms and conditions, or for any fraudulent or illegal reasons.

It is important that you understand your responsibilities as a member of our community so please take the time to review this section and the Signal2 Market Terms carefully.

10. Referrals: As a part of our Affiliate Program, if you refer a new member to any of our Signal2 Market sites you may be eligible to receive affiliate income.

How buying items works
This section will help you understand what you are buying when you purchase an item and how that transaction takes place on Signal2 Market.

11. What you’re buying:

License: When you buy an item, you acquire the right to use that item; you’re not actually acquiring the item itself. What you get includes a license directly from the author to use that item. Items are subject to specific terms of use, and these terms are the ‘license’ that we set on Signal2 Market. This license also applies to you if you download an item that someone else has bought for you (because anyone downloading an item needs to be an Signal2 Market member). Different license types are available for you to choose when you have selected an item. You’ll need to think about the way you want to use the item so that you can pick the right license to allow that use. It’s your responsibility to choose the correct license.
Item support: Authors can choose whether or not to support certain items. If an author chooses to support an item, this will be identified on the item page.  All supported items include a support period. You can buy support extensions on these items. Your right to access Item Support requires an Signal2 Market account.
Buyer Services: In addition to the use of the platform, when you ‘buy’ an item you also receive buyer services from Signal2 like 24/7 buyer support, fraud protection, item quality control and other related buyer services.

12. The total price for an item on Signal2 Market is made up of:

Item price: The item price is made up of a license fee (for the license you choose for the item), and if relevant the item support fee (for supported items).
Buyer fee: This is the fee for the buyer services you get from Signal2 .
Handling fee: In some transactions on Signal2 Market the total checkout price may include a handling fee.
Taxes: Some transactions on Signal2 Market may be subject to tax that may be added to the price.
The list price is made up of the item price and buyer fee, and is the price you see on an item page.
Transacting as a buyer:

13. If you have an Signal2 Market account, you can make payments by using the ‘Buy Now’ function or by using any existing Signal2 Credits in your Signal2 Market account.

14. When using Buy Now you will be redirected to a payment method provider.

15. Currency conversion costs: You are responsible for all costs of currency conversion relating to a transaction on Signal2 Market. Your financial institution does the currency conversion and may charge you additional fees (we don’t control either the conversion rates or your financial institution’s fees).

This means that you may incur additional costs when purchasing from Signal2 Market, which we have no control over.

16. Terms of buying: When you buy an Signal2 Market item you’re doing so on the following terms:

you warrant to us and the author that you have carefully considered the suitability of your chosen license, and that you have chosen appropriately;
you cannot cancel a completed purchase of an item;
we and the authors do not promise that any particular item will continue to be available on Signal2 Market so you should download and save the item as soon as you buy it;
once you buy or download an item and the item has been paid for, you acquire a non-exclusive license to use the item under the terms set out in the license (non-exclusive means others might also license the same item);
the author retains ownership of the item;
your relevant details may be provided to the author of the item in order to facilitate the transaction, for example for invoicing and item support services; and
we have the right to enforce against you the terms of the license that you have acquired from an author.
It is important that you understand the terms on which you are making a purchase. Please take the time to review this section carefully.

17. Warranties we make:

We warrant that the Signal2 Market sites will be suitable for the purposes described on the sites, and that we will provide our platform services with reasonable skill and care.
We otherwise do not make any express or implied warranties about the Signal2 Market sites (or any items on the Signal2 Market sites).

18. Warranties authors make: The author of an item you buy warrants to you that:

the item is of acceptable quality and fit for the purpose for which it is ‘sold’;
the item matches the description given by the author on the item preview page, as well as any item preview;
they will honour any express warranties given to you that are not contained in these terms;
they have the rights necessary to license that item on the terms of applicable license;
your use of that item in accordance with the terms of the applicable license does not infringe the intellectual property rights of someone else;
the item and its description are not false, inaccurate, misleading, fraudulent, unlawful or defamatory;
the item and its description do not violate any applicable law or regulation (including those governing export control, consumer protection, unfair competition, criminal law, pornography, anti-discrimination, trade practices or fair trading);
the item does not contain viruses or other computer codes, files or programs which are designed to limit or destroy the functionality of other computer software or hardware;
they will process your data in accordance with applicable privacy law and data protection regulations.
This is what authors are promising you when you buy an item.

19. Taxes:

Australian GST, European VAT and US Sales Tax. Prices and fees for supplies made to you (whether by Signal2 or authors) in connection with these terms exclude Australian GST, European VAT and US Sales Tax, unless stated otherwise on our site. If a supply is made to you under or in connection with these terms on which Australian GST, European VAT or US Sales Tax is imposed, any applicable fee that is charged for that supply is increased by, and you must also pay, an amount equal to the GST, VAT or US Sales Tax payable (by Signal2 or the author) on that supply.
Other taxes. Prices, fees and charges are otherwise inclusive of other applicable taxes unless stated otherwise on our site. You are responsible for paying all such taxes and imposts associated with your use of Signal2 Market wherever levied. Your responsibility includes withholding tax if it applies, unless we already process that withholding tax. We may collect geographical location information to determine your location, which may be used for tax purposes (so location information you give us must be accurate for tax residency purposes).

20. Items with an incorrect price or incorrect information: Despite our reasonable efforts, items may occasionally be listed at an incorrect price or with incorrect information. If this happens, we may cancel or reverse a transaction, even after it is completed and a payment has been processed. If we do this, we’ll promptly arrange for any payment to be credited or refunded and you must not use the item unless you re-purchase it at the correct price.

Refunds

21. We will assess refund or credit requests (if you have an Signal2 Market account) on their merits, considering the digital nature of Signal2 Market items and the type of item preview that was available before purchase. There is generally no obligation to provide a refund or credit in situations like the following:

you have changed your mind about an item;
you bought an item by mistake;
you do not have sufficient expertise to use the item;
you ask for goodwill; or
you can no longer access the item because it has been removed (we advise you to download items as soon as you buy them to avoid this situation).

22. If the author or we decide to issue a refund or credit (if you have an Signal2 Market account), this will generally be done using the same manner used to make the purchase.  Any payment made to you will be made in US Dollars, under the rules of the payment method.

It is important that you understand how refunds work on Signal2 Market.

23. Disputes lodged with payment agents: If, as a buyer via your Signal2 Market account, you lodge a dispute with a payment agent, this will result in a freezing of your Signal2 Market account until the dispute raised with the payment agent has been cancelled. This makes it very complex to resolve any related issues, and means we cannot make payments or issue refunds out of your Signal2 Market account, so we encourage buyers to contact us directly first to see if we can help resolve any concerns.

24. Fine print: We are not a bank or licensed deposit taker in Australia or elsewhere, your credits are not deposits under Australian law about banks, and that means you don’t get the benefit of any deposit insurance or guarantee under those laws. We don’t act as a fiduciary or as a trustee for you, and we’re not a licensed financial service provider.

Intellectual Property

25. What we own: We own all the Signal2 content that we have put on Signal2 Market (unless otherwise stated and excluding content owned by others). This includes the design, compilation, and look and feel of the Signal2 Market sites, and copyright, trademarks, designs and other intellectual property on Signal2 Market. We own all the trademarks, logos, service marks and trade names on Signal2 Market (unless otherwise stated and excluding these things owned by others). You will not copy, distribute, modify or make derivative works of any of our Signal2 Content or use any of our intellectual property in any way not expressly stated in these terms.

26. What we don’t own: We do not own the items on Signal2 Market; our authors do. Items are uploaded at the direction of the author. So we cannot take responsibility for the quality, safety or legality of the items. We do not warrant that the items or any member content, code, data or materials available on or via the Signal2 Market do not infringe the intellectual property rights of a third party.

27. Copyright, trademark and intellectual property claims: We respect the intellectual property rights of others and we require that authors do the same.

Our Intellectual Property Policy is where you will find all the information relating to how we treat intellectual property on Signal2 Market including copyright and other rights.

28. Model and property releases: Items are available for commercial use (unless stated otherwise by the Author on an item page). Authors are responsible for obtaining and keeping a model or property release if one is needed; please ask the author directly if you need a copy of a release.

Our use of your information

29. Confidential Information: We value your information and take reasonable precautions to protect it. While using the Signal2 Market, you may also become aware of confidential information about us or another member. You promise to not disclose any confidential information made available to you through the Signal2 Market to any other person.

Playing fair

30. Prohibited Conduct: We strongly recommend that you don’t make your contact details public on the Signal2 Market or in any public communications via the Signal2 Market sites. Contact details include your email address, street address, Skype name and phone number (but not social network handles).

31. Content removal: We can look at or remove any of your content for any reason at our discretion. Reasons might include quality assurance, if we receive a valid copyright take-down notice or General IPR Notice, if we think that the content is unauthorised, misleading, incorrect, offensive, or in breach of anyone else’s rights, or if we think that your use of the Signal2 Market and any content might result in liability to us or anyone else.

32. Community participation: We take great pride in our global and thriving community—it’s part of what makes the Signal2 Market great. We focus on transparency and mutual respect and invite you to participate, give feedback and have your say.

Linking; apps made by others

33. Linking to the Signal2 Market: We’d be delighted if you decide to link to Signal2 Market from other sites but you have to link to a full version of a page and not link directly to an image or file hosted on Signal2 Market. That includes no “in-line” linking methods resulting in images hosted on Signal2 Market being displayed on other sites. You must not “frame” any Signal2 Market pages by surrounding those pages with someone else’s content, materials or branding. We reserve the right to insist that any link to the Signal2 Market be discontinued, and to revoke your ability to link to the Signal2 Market.

34. Links from the Signal2 Market: The Signal2 Market sites may contain links to other non-Signal2 sites. We have no control or responsibility over anything on those sites, and do not endorse or sponsor those sites, even if they are affiliated to us.

35. Third party developers: We welcome the contribution of our members and broader community, who offer applications that work with Signal2 Market. You will need to form your own view about these applications and their developers; we’re not able to warrant or endorse those applications and disclaim liability relating to these applications.

Legal Housekeeping

36. Eligibility, suspension or termination: Membership is not an automatic right, it is a benefit for community members who follow our terms and policies and treat other community members well. We hope that you will be with us for a long time. But we may, using reasonable discretion, decide whether or not your use of Signal2 Market complies with these terms and our policies. We can suspend or terminate your Signal2 Market account at any time for any reason (acting reasonably of course), including if you:

breach these terms or any terms applicable to any of your other Signal2 accounts;
breach any of our policies (or policies of any other Signal2 Company);
act in a way that does not align with the values of our community; or
act in a way that could cause us or members harm.

If we do decide to permanently terminate your Signal2 Market account you must not apply for a new account as unfortunately you will no longer be welcome in our community. This decision may also apply to all of your Signal2 accounts you use on other Signal2 sites.

37. Signal2 Companies: If an indemnity, limitation or disclaimer of liability, warranty or release (a ‘benefit’) is given in our favour in these terms, the Author Terms or Affiliate Terms, we hold that benefit on trust for the other Signal2 Companies. We may enforce that benefit as trustee for and on behalf of the other Signal2 Companies as beneficiaries under that trust.

38. We may use the services of another Signal2 Company to conduct payment or other activities with you, like collecting payments and paying author earnings. If you make a Buy Now payment, we receive your payment as a limited agent for the author and your obligation to pay the author is met when we (or another Signal2 Company) receive the payment successfully.

Liability and indemnity – between us and you

39. We provide the Signal2 Market sites and the platform services, not the items on the Signal2 Market sites.

40. You indemnify us against all losses, costs (including legal costs on a full indemnity basis), expenses, demands or liability that we incur arising out of, or in connection with, a third party claim against us relating to your use of Signal2 Market and any content you post to Signal2 Market (including, if you are an author, your items).

41. If you are a buyer, you agree that we are not responsible for, and you release us from liability arising out of or in connection with:

the items on Signal2 Market;
information provided by authors about their items (including on any item page); and
your use of items from Signal2 Market.

42. Our liability to you in connection with Signal2 Market or these terms, in contract, tort (including negligence) or otherwise, is limited as follows:

we exclude liability for any of these things incurred by you: loss of revenue, loss of profit, loss of goodwill, loss of customers, loss of capital, damage to reputation, loss in connection with any other contract, loss of data, or indirect, consequential or special loss, damage or expense; and;
our total liability to you is limited to the greater of USD100 and the total buyer fees paid by you in the 12 months before liability accrued.
These sections mean that you protect us from costs and claims that happen because of your actions on the site, and that our liability to you is limited.

We may, at our expense, assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter you indemnify us against, and if so you agree to cooperate with us.

Liability and indemnity – between authors and buyers

43. Each author grants to each buyer of the author’s items a limited indemnity on the following terms:

if another person makes a claim against a buyer that the buyer’s use of the item in accordance with the terms of the applicable license infringes the intellectual property or other rights of that third party; and
if that buyer promptly notifies the author of the claim and gives the author the option to control the defense of the claim (at the author’s cost), then the author will indemnify the buyer against damages finally awarded by a court against the buyer or any settlement damages agreed to by the author regarding that claim.

44. The liability of each author to their buyers is otherwise limited, for each item purchased, to the author’s earnings from the payment for that item, except to the extent that the author’s liability arises from wilful misrepresentations made about the item.

This means that the author’s liability to buyers is limited.

45. Availability: We strive to have Signal2 Market available to you 24 hours a day, seven days a week but you know how the internet works: occasionally you might not be able to access Signal2 Market, and this might happen for any reason, at any time, with or without notice, or at our absolute discretion. We might also change aspects of how Signal2 Market works. The Signal2 Companies will not be liable to you for any loss you suffer as a result of these things.

46. Third Party: If you’re agreeing to these terms on behalf of someone else (like your employer), then you’re promising to us that you have full legal authority to bind that third party.

47. Consumer laws: In some places there may be non-excludable warranties, guarantees or other rights (‘non-excludable consumer guarantees’). We do not exclude, restrict or modify non-excludable consumer guarantees in these terms. Except for non-excludable consumer guarantees, we and authors are bound only by the express warranties made in these terms. Our and each author’s liability for breach of a non-excludable consumer guarantee is limited, at our or the author’s option, to replacing or paying the cost of replacing the relevant item or service, (unless the non-excludable consumer guarantee says otherwise).

48. Blocking a member, disabling an account or refusing to process a payment. We may block you, terminate any of your Signal2 accounts or refuse to process a payment, including withholding your account balance indefinitely, if we reasonably believe there is a risk associated with you, your Signal2 account, or that payment, including if it breaches a law or regulation. Examples of where we might do this include transactions where we suspect the payment is from or to a person or country sanctioned by an authority (like the United Nations, the United States government or the Australian government); or where we reasonably believe there is a legal or regulatory risk or a risk of loss being suffered by us or our members. You warrant that you are not located in a sanctioned country and are not on a sanctioned persons list. You also warrant that you will not purchase items on Signal2 Market using funds sourced from a sanctioned country. We may also block members from a country if we can’t make payments to or from that country. You should check what payment methods are available in your country for making payments as a buyer or for withdrawing earnings as an author. We may take any of the actions stated in this section without notice and against all of your Signal2 accounts you use on other Signal2 sites. If required by law we may forfeit existing deposits or earnings.

49. US-specific controls. Signal2 Market is not available to anyone located in any U.S. sanctioned countries or to anyone on the U.S Treasury Department’s list of Specially Designated Nationals List (SDN list). You must not export or re-export Signal2 Market items to a U.S. sanctioned country or to anyone on the SDN list.

50. Relationship between the parties: Nothing in these terms is to be construed as constituting a partnership, joint venture, employment or agency relationship between you and us, or between you and any other member. Neither you nor us can bind each other in any way.

51. Notices: Any notice you send us must be submitted to info@solidmvc.com. Any notice we send to you will be emailed to your Signal2 Market account email address.

52. Changes to Signal2 Market Terms: We may change these terms at any time and, if we make changes, we will take reasonable steps to let our community know about the changes. You can also keep track of whether changes have been made to our terms by referring to the version and effective date at the footer of the terms. You can close your Market Account and terminate your agreement with us at any time if you do not agree to the changes. However, if you continue to use Signal2 Market sites after the changes are made, then you will be agreeing to the changes.

53. Interpretation: Words like ‘include’ and ‘including’ are not words of limitation and where anything is within our discretion we mean our sole discretion.

54. Applicable Laws: We control and operate Signal2 Market from our offices in Australia. The laws of Victoria, Australia govern these terms, and you submit to the jurisdiction of the courts there for the resolution of any dispute between us.

Version 7.2 – Effective date: July 22, 2020.

Welcome

1. Hi, we’re Signal2 . We’ve met before over at Signal2 Market Terms. It’s good to meet you again and we’re really glad you’re keen on becoming an author with us.

2. Imagine creating what you want, when you want, from the comfort of your own home, making passive income whether you’re working or not. Some of our authors sell stock in their free time as a hobby, some do it to get their name out there, and some are able to make it their full time profession.

3. Becoming an author is easy and if you’ve reached this point then you’re already a member and you’ve accepted our Signal2  Market Terms. These additional terms for authors (‘Author Terms’) are an extra part of the Signal2 Market Terms that apply specifically to authors on the Signal2 Market. You’ll need to agree to them before you can become an author. These govern the relationships, rights and obligations of authors to us and buyers using Signal2 Market. You agree to put your items on Signal2 Market and make them available to buyers on the basis stated in the Signal2 Market Terms and these Author Terms.

As an author on the Signal2 Market you have responsibilities to us and buyers of your items. Please take the time to review these Author Terms carefully.

4. When we say ‘you’ in these Author Terms we are referring to you, the author whose details are listed as the Signal2 Market account holder. All other words defined or explained in the Signal2 Market Terms have the same meaning here. If there’s any inconsistency between what we say in these Author Terms and what is in the Signal2 Market Terms, what we say in these Author Terms prevails.

5. Read on for details about your author responsibilities, the process of selling your items on the Signal2 Market and how you can earn money with us.

Becoming an author

6. Becoming an author is free: Becoming an author and putting your items up on the Signal2 Market is free but there is a review process. There are a few things you warrant in exchange for the right to be an author, which are outlined in these Author Terms.

How selling your items works

7. What you’re providing:

License: When you ‘sell’ an item, you’re making your item available to buyers and downloaders to use that item under certain conditions; you’re not actually selling the item itself. What you’re selling includes a license directly to the buyer or downloader to use that item under the relevant license options that we set.

8. The total price for an item on Signal2 Market is made up of:

Item price: The item price is made up of a license fee (for the license chosen for the item), and if relevant the item support fee (for supported items).
Buyer fee: This is the fee buyers pay Signal2 for the buyer services we provide buyers.
Handling fee: In some transactions the total checkout price may include a handling fee.
Taxes: Some transactions may be subject to tax that may be added to the price.
The list price is made up of the item price and buyer fee, and is the price on an item page.

9. Exclusivity: When you become an author, you can choose to make your items and related items available exclusively on Signal2 or to retain the ability to sell your items elsewhere. The percentage of revenue you receive from each sale of your item will vary depending on your choice (as explained below). You can change your exclusivity status of your account at any time.

10. Your earnings; author fee: When your item is sold on Signal2 Market, you will earn the item price component of the list price less an author fee that we charge. The author fee is what you are charged by Signal2 for use of our platform and services as an author. The author fee is determined by whether you are selling the item only on Signal2 Market exclusively and by the aggregate value of list price sales you’ve had in the past. Any changes to these rates will take effect on and from the date on which notice of the variation is posted by us on Signal2 Market.

11. Setting the prices of items: As an author, you are responsible for setting the prices for your items. This is known as ‘Author Driven Pricing’. You must make all pricing decisions independently, and discussions about your pricing decisions (including with other authors) are not permitted under any circumstances.

12. Review: We have rules about what we accept and don’t accept and you can read up on these in our author-related Signal2 Market information. Although we always like to provide constructive feedback we’re not obliged to give you any reasons for rejecting your item. We have the final say on whether items are accepted for Signal2 Market.

13. No Variation: You are not permitted to vary these terms (or our Signal2 Market Terms) as they apply between you and buyers, or to offer your items on different terms or with additional terms (for example, through your item description pages). Any different or additional terms that you try to impose on Signal2 Market on your items will have no effect against buyers or Signal2 .

How do payments of earnings work
These sections explain how earning an income works on the Signal2 Market and important information about payments to your account, and deductions from your account. Take a close look!
Earnings payment:

14. We will pay you the item price component of the total price less the author fee (‘your earnings’ or ‘earnings’). In order for us to do this, you authorise us to collect payments, to credit your Signal2 Market account with your earnings, and to payout your earnings to you. We may use another Signal2 Company to do these things for us.

15. To avoid any confusion, only your earnings from the sale of your items (and referral income under our separate Affiliate Program) will be payable to you.

16. Thresholds: We’ll make payments of your earnings based on certain minimum threshold amounts. For more information see our help centre.

17. Earnings payment timing and methods:

You ask us to hold the balance of your earnings until they are paid out to you, the Signal2 account holder. You can set up an automatic payment destination which must be owned by you, the Signal2 account holder. Where your earnings reach certain threshold amounts, we make monthly payouts of your earnings to your payment destination.
You must provide us with the correct details and payment method when you set your payment destination.
We reserve the right to pay your earnings to you, at any time, at our discretion.
You may bear some or all expenses incurred by us in paying monies to you.

18. Potential deductions:

Payment methods available for buyers to buy your items involve payment agents that have their own standard terms and conditions regarding refunds, chargebacks, fees and unauthorised transactions (which we don’t control). If an Signal2 Market transaction on an item is subject to payment agents’ refunds, chargeback, fees or unauthorised transactions, we may automatically deduct those amounts from your Signal2 Market account.
If you breach any warranty you have made to us we may offset any amount that we have to pay to anyone else as a result of your breach, against any payments due to you.

19. Payment errors: We will continue to hold your earnings if we’re not able to pay your earnings to you for whatever reason, including if:

we do not have the correct payment details;
we can’t contact you using the contact details that you have supplied;
you have not made a request for payment; or
you are asking for payment to be made to a person, an institution or a country that we’re legally prohibited from making payments to, or where there are limitations in the banking systems.

20. Currency conversions: Whenever we make a payment to you as an author, you are responsible for all costs of converting the amount of the payment from US dollars into your preferred currency. Your financial institution does the currency conversion and may charge you additional fees (we don’t control either the conversion rates or your financial institution’s fees).

21. Holding earnings: If we decide that an item of yours does not comply with an applicable law or any of our rules or guidelines, including the Signal2 Market Terms and these Author Terms, we can at our discretion disable the item or your membership. We may also hold any earnings on that item or your account for up to two years, and may release those held earnings during that period if we are satisfied that any dispute or issue about your item has been resolved.

The Signal2 Market Terms have some important details about how our dealings with you might be restricted or your earnings forfeited.
Author house-keeping

22. Taxes that apply to our supplies:

Any fees paid by you for supplies made to you by Signal2 in connection with these terms exclude Australian GST (unless expressly stated otherwise on the site). If we make a supply under or in connection with these terms on which Australian GST is imposed, any applicable fee that we charge for that supply is increased by, and you must also pay to Signal2 , an amount equal to the GST payable by Signal2 on that supply.

23. Taxes that apply to your supplies:

As an author on Signal2 Market, you are responsible for paying any taxes that apply (with the exception of VAT in an EU Member State, GST in Australia and in respect of specific “marketplace states” in the United States).
Signal2 will charge, collect and account for:
VAT in an EU Member State when a buyer is located in an EU Member State and does not provide a valid EU VAT Identification number. When a buyer is located in an EU Member State and does provide a valid EU VAT Identification Number, it is the buyer’s responsibility to self-account for VAT. It is not your responsibility as an author to account for VAT when a buyer is located in an EU Member State.
GST in Australia when a buyer is located in Australia. Signal2 is registered for Australian GST and you authorise Signal2 to issue tax invoices in respect of any supplies (including license sales) made by you to Australian buyers.
Sales tax when a buyer is located in a “marketplace state” in the United States.
If required by law, we may deduct or withhold taxes (including withholding tax) in connection with your being an author. If so, we will give you relevant documentation that’s required by law about the deduction or withholding (like documentation allowing you to access rebates or credits, or to manage your tax affairs).
We may collect geographical location information to determine your location. You may be required to give us tax-related documentation or information to help us identify you. Information and documentation may be used for tax purposes, so the information you give us must be accurate. Information or documentation may be collected by one Signal2 Company and disclosed to or handled by another Signal2 Company. We or another Signal2 Company may disclose or submit your information to regulators and government authorities in connection with our compliance procedures and obligations.

24. Invoices: We will issue invoices (or in some cases tax invoices) for transactions between authors and buyers on Signal2 Market.

Your warranties and responsibilities:

25. As an author you warrant to us and each buyer of your items that:

the item is of acceptable quality and fit for the purpose for which it is ‘sold’;
the item matches the description given by you on the item preview page, as well as any item preview;
you will honour any express warranties given to buyers that are not contained in the Signal2 Market Terms;
you have rights necessary to license that item on the terms of the applicable license;
the buyer’s use of that item in accordance with the terms of the applicable license does not infringe the intellectual property rights of someone else;
the item and its description are not false, inaccurate, misleading, fraudulent, unlawful or defamatory;
the item and its description do not violate any applicable law or regulation (including those governing export control, consumer protection, unfair competition, criminal law, pornography, anti-discrimination, trade practices or fair trading);
the item does not contain viruses or other computer codes, files or programs which are designed to limit or destroy the functionality of other computer software or hardware;
where relevant, you have the appropriate model or property release for your item and you can produce a copy of that model or property release when requested by us or a buyer of your item; and
you will process a buyer’s information in accordance with applicable privacy law and data protection regulations.

26. If you make your items available on Signal2 Market for free, then the warranties you make to buyers also apply to anyone who downloads your item from Signal2 Market. In certain circumstances, we may also allow a buyer to purchase an item for another member, and in this case you also agree that these warranties apply to the member for whom the item is purchased.

27. You give an indemnity (legal protection) to and are liable to each buyer of your items.

As an author you have responsibilities to us and buyers of your items. Take a moment to understand your responsibilities!

28. As an author you warrant to us that:

you will not use Signal2 Market to offer non-Signal2 goods or services to buyers;
you will not buy your own items;
you will follow any author guidelines provided by us, act in good faith, and provide assistance and co-operation as we reasonably request;
information and documentation you give us (like your name and address) is accurate; and
where you have marked an item as ‘supported’, you will provide buyers of your item with support for the included support period and any support extension period purchased, unless we agree otherwise.

29. Buyers’ use of your item: We are not liable for any loss suffered by you as a result of a buyer or any other person making use of your item contrary to the Signal2 Market Terms or the item’s license.

30. Other authors and affiliates’ use of your item: An Signal2 affiliate can use your item thumbnail previews in their promotion of the Signal2 Market and no compensation is due for these uses. A fellow author may use a watermarked preview of your item in a preview of another item on any Signal2 Company site without requiring your permission and without compensating you. The watermarked item is credited either by providing a link to your item on the Signal2 Market or by otherwise attributing your Signal2 Market item to you.

31. Our use of your item: We may use the whole or part of your items to promote Signal2 . This promotional use may include use in public relations, emails, on a features page, or on other sites (e.g. social networks). No compensation is payable for these uses.

32. Item removal: We have the right to remove an item for any reason, using our reasonable discretion. For example, we may review the libraries to keep the Signal2 Market fresh and full of quality items that meet the latest technical standards and market trends. Also, issues about an item might be brought to our attention such as errors, representations, or even violations. Our goal is always to address these situations with you constructively. We also aim to give you notice before an item is removed, but this is not always feasible or possible, so we can’t guarantee this. We will not be responsible for any loss that you may suffer as a result of your item being removed.

Personal information

33. In order to facilitate a transaction on Signal2 Market, we may provide you with relevant buyer information and also may provide buyers with your relevant information (for example for invoicing or item support services). You agree that you will keep buyer information confidential and only use this information for that Signal2 Market transaction in compliance with applicable privacy and data protection laws.

34. If, over and above what Signal2 provides you with, a member or a model (via a model release) voluntarily provides you with (or your item accesses or uses) usernames, passwords, photo identification or other personal information of the member or model (personal information), you must:

provide a privacy notice, making the member or model aware of their personal information that you will receive and how you will handle that information;
obtain the member’s or model’s permission to use their personal information;
use the personal information only for the limited purposes for which the member or model gave permission; and
meet any privacy and spam law requirements that apply to you.
Special arrangements
Special deals and promotions

35. Sometimes we might negotiate volume sales or other arrangements with buyers as part of creating business development opportunities for authors (special deals). In order for us to make this possible you give us permission to negotiate special deals. We might also offer pricing promotions to Signal2 Market buyers.  In some cases, if pricing promotions involve a change in the author fee or licensing terms, then it is a special promotion and the following sections are relevant.

36. Given the nature of special deals, the prices of your items under the special deal may vary from the advertised item price. This means that your earnings on the sale of your items in a special deal may not always be determined by reference to the advertised price of your item on the Signal2 Market. Given the nature of special deals and special promotions, the author fee may differ for special deals or special promotions.

37. Before your item is included in a special deal or special promotion, we’ll provide you with information about the special deal or special promotion, item pricing and author fee. You can opt out of participating in a special deal or special promotion if the deal involves a change to the author fee. We will let you know the time frame to opt out, and if you don’t do so, your item will be included in the special deal or special promotion.

38. Special deals and special promotions might also involve you entering supplementary licensing arrangements to allow the buyer to use your item in particular ways. If these supplementary licenses are substantially different from the standard Signal2 Market licenses, you will also have the opportunity to opt out of participating in the special deal or special promotion within the time frame we set out when we make the offer to you.

You will always have the option of opting out of any special deal or special promotion if it involves a change to the author fee. We decide the other details like pricing.
Legal housekeeping

39. Relationship between us and you: Nothing in these terms is to be construed as constituting a partnership, joint venture, employment or agency relationship between you and us. Neither you nor us can act on behalf of the other in any way. However, you appoint us as your limited agent only for these specific purposes:

for receiving Buy Now payments from buyers (the buyer’s obligation to pay you for an item will be met when they make a Buy Now payment to us or an Signal2 Company);
