b. Digital Products
Digital Products are products such as tutorials, software tools, stock assets and other electronic products that you upload to the Site and make available through the Marketplace. If you opt to allow any of Your Content to be commercialized as Digital Products, then you agree as follows:
(i) You must set a price for each of your Digital Products. You hereby authorize us to license copies of those products at that price, plus applicable taxes.
(ii) You must specify the licence terms that apply to each Digital Product you make available through the Marketplace. You will have the option of specifying one of our standard licence terms or providing your own licence terms. If you provide your own license terms, we will have the right to review, approve, or disapprove those terms at our discretion at any time. We do not represent or warrant that any documentation or information we provide complies with any jurisdiction’s laws, and you should obtain advice from a qualified professional before preparing or implementing any terms. You acknowledge and agree that the licence terms are between you and the purchaser, and that we do not have any obligation to enforce those terms or to attempt to resolve any dispute between you and a purchaser.
(iii) After we have completed a transaction in connection with any of your Digital Products, we will make the Digital Products available to the purchaser according to the applicable licence terms you have specified (subject to Section 8(b)(ii)). You hereby grant us a royalty-free, perpetual, world-wide licence to do so. You must not include anything in the Digital Products that reduces or eliminates the applicable licence granted to the customer.
(iv) After we have received payment for a transaction in connection with any of your Digital Products, we will deposit you a percentage of the price (excluding taxes) we received as set out in fee schedule, less any transaction fees listed in that fee schedule, into your Marketplace account. You may redeem amounts from your Marketplace account as described in section 8e) below. We will retain the remainder as our commission for the transaction. We may change the fee schedule from time-to-time by posting the changes on the Site for at least 30 days.
(v) If a customer advises us that there is a material error in any of your Digital Products, or that they do not substantially conform with the description you provided for them, or there is some other material issue with your Digital Products then: (i) you will promptly remedy that error, description or issue at our request, (ii) we may refund the customer, in which case at our option you will either repay us the refunded amount or we will deduct the refunded amount from any future payment we make to you, and (iii) we may suspend or prohibit future sales of Your Content.
c. Account Balance and Redemption
(i) Upon receiving payment from a purchase of your Digital Product, we will deposit your portion of the payment into your Marketplace account.
(ii) Provided that the balance of your Marketplace account exceeds the applicable threshold set out in our fee schedule, that balance will be automatically redeemed on a weekly basis.
(iii) Balances that you redeem will be paid to the bank account you designate on the Site. A deposit initiated by a balance redemption will not reach your bank account immediately.
(iv) If we have provided a refund to a purchaser of your Digital Product we will deduct the refunded amount from your Marketplace account balance.
(v) You acknowledge and agree that additional third-party fees may apply to and be deducted from the amounts you redeem from your Marketplace account balance, and that Arch-Hive is not responsible for and has no control over such fees. For example, your bank may impose wire transfer or similar fees or currency conversion fees.
(vi) Arch-Hive is not responsible for lost payments. You are solely responsible for ensuring we have all required account numbers and information to make those payments.
d. Currency Conversion
Arch-Hive will calculate and render a converted exchange rate in United States dollars, regardless of the currency in which you listed the price of your Digital Product. All transactions through the Marketplace, regardless of type of content or listed currency, will settle in United States dollars. Your Marketplace account balance will be denominated and redeemable only in United States dollars. Arch-Hive cannot guarantee the accuracy of displayed exchange rates because market rates can fluctuate. We recommend that you confirm current exchange rates before engaging in Marketplace transactions.
You are solely responsible and liable for imposing, collecting, reporting and remitting to the relevant authorities, in a timely and proper manner, all applicable sales, use, value-added, property, excise, import, foreign, withhold and other taxes, duties, charges, levies, fees, excises, tariffs, and assessments of any nature whatsoever imposed, arising from, connect with and relating to your sales through the Marketplace and the payments you receive for those sales.

You must not distribute the product, allow any third party to use or access the product, or otherwise use, reproduce or exploit the product in any way that is not permitted by the applicable licence terms. You acknowledge and agree that those licence terms (and any dispute under them) are between you and the provider and that we are not a party to them and that we do not have any obligation to attempt to resolve any dispute between you and the provider. You also acknowledge and agree that we are a third-party beneficiary of those licence terms and therefore will be entitled to directly enforce and rely upon any provision in those terms that confers a benefit on, or rights in favour of, us.
