The Platform is an
online platform where you can provide Expert's Services to users of
the Platform ("Users"). You may charge fees in exchange
for your Expert's Services, subject to certain rules, as Fitango will
publish from time to time and subject to your compliance with the terms
and conditions in this Agreement. All Expert's Services provided to
Users will be billed through Fitango, utilizing commercially available
payment methods. Any communications that you have and transactions that
you enter into with Users are made strictly between you and the Users.
Fitango is not a party, should not be deemed a party and does not assume
any responsibility with respect to such transactions and communications.
Fitango is under no obligation to verify the identity of Users, to authenticate
Users' communications, or to resolve disputes between you and any User,
or other Experts.
2. Preliminary terms for providing Expert's Services
You may provide Expert's Services through the Platform if by providing the Expert's Services you will not violate any applicable law; you will not enter into any conflict of interests; you will not breach your contractual duties, such as, if applicable, your employment agreement and your employer's rules, codes and policies and you will obtain all necessary waivers and consents from any relevant third party. You further represent that you are duly authorized to enter into this Agreement. If you are a representative of an institution, organization or other legal entity ("Institution"), you represent that you are duly authorized to enter into this Agreement on the Institution's behalf, that the Institution is duly authorized to enter into this Agreement, that the terms of this Agreement apply to all Experts of the Institution that provide Expert's Services through the Platform and that the Institution assumes full responsibility to the performance of duties under this Agreement by the Institution's Experts.
3. Transactions and Revenue Sharing
You and Fitango shall share participation in any and all Net Revenue generated in connection with the sale of Actionplans through the Platform in accordance with the terms listed in Fitango's Fee Schedule (the "Fee Schedule"). "Net Revenue" shall be defined as revenue actually received by Fitango in direct connection with the sale, licensing or distribution of Expert's Services, minus all applicable taxes and expenses related to the sale, licensing or distribution. Net Revenue expressly excludes general revenue, such as revenue Fitango receives from sponsorship or advertising on the Site. Fitango shall pay you the applicable percentage of Net Revenue it receives within thirty (30) days from the end of each calendar month in which receipt of revenue occurs. The applicable percentage shall be paid to you via check of Paypal. If the aggregate Net Revenue is less than a Minimal Sum (as defined in the Fee Schedule) for any given month, the payment will be held over and combined with the next monthly payment, or until such payment reaches the Minimum Sum or more, paid on a monthly basis. Notwithstanding the foregoing, all Net Revenue will be paid within forty five (45) days after the Date of Termination (as defined below), even if such payment is less than the Minimum Sum. From time to time, Fitango may change the value of the Minimum Sum. All payments to you will be accompanied by an accounting statement containing sufficient information to allow you to confirm the accuracy of statement and payments rendered.
For all Net Revenue actually received by Fitango as a result of any agreement that Fitango maintains with a business affiliate ("Affiliate") for the licensing, sale or distribution of your content, Fitango shall share Net Revenue according to the terms listed in Fitango's Fee Schedule.
Fitango maintains the right to alter the revenue sharing percentages listed in the Fee Schedule. All transactions that you enter into with Users will be billed through Fitango. Fitango will make reasonable efforts to have such transaction processed accurately and expeditiously. However, Fitango will not be liable for mistakes, errors, malfunctions and miscalculations made in the course of transactions between you and a User. You will abide by the pricing terms agreed upon with Users for the Expert's Services that you render. From time to time, Fitango may initiate, in its sole discretion, special pricing programs and incentives with respect to certain or all Expert's Services available through the Platform. You agree to abide by these programs and incentives, if they apply to Expert's Services that you provide. At all times, the current Minimum Sum is published in the Fee Schedule. Other than you and your Institution's portions of the fees, you and your Institution are not entitled to any payment or other benefits in consideration for rendering your Expert's Services through the Platform. You agree to pay all taxes and levies with respect to the fees that you receive. Notwithstanding any remedies available to Fitango under the applicable law, Fitango may set-off, or deduct from your account any sums as compensation for damage resulting from fraudulent or other unlawful activities, and for credits, refunds and payments that will likely remain uncollectable - all in relation to the Expert's Services that you provide through the Platform.
4. Rules of Conduct

Fitango may charge fees for your registration as an expert, whether it is standard or premium registration. Fitango may also opt to charge registration fees for previously free registrations or change fee rates for premium registrations in the future. Fitango will require such fees only following the posting of prior notice on the Platform, but Fitango is under no obligation to notify you in person of any change in Fitango's registration policy. If you do not consent to the terms in the notice, or fail to settle your registration fees to Fitango's satisfaction, your account on the Platform may be terminated.
When you register with the Platform, Fitango will ask you to provide certain contact and personal details. Bear in mind that false, incorrect, or outdated information may prevent you from registering and impair Fitango's ability to provide you with Expert's Services and to contact you, as well as your ability to provide Expert's Services as an Expert. Fitango will explicitly indicate the fields for mandatory completion. If you do not enter the requisite data in these fields, you will not be able to register as an Expert.
To login, you must use your email address or user name and password. Fitango may also establish and require from time to time additional or different means of identification and authentication for logging in and accessing your account, or for accessing certain Expert's Services on the Platform. You agree to maintain your login details in absolute confidentiality and refrain from disclosing them to others. Make sure that you change your password frequently and at least once every six months. You are fully accountable for any outcome that may result from your failure to provide true, accurate and complete details in the course of the registration process, and for any use or misuse of your account on the Platform, and for any Expert's Services rendered under your name and password, as a result of compromising your details or conveying them to someone else.
You may terminate your account at any time, by using Fitango's designated termination form at Fitango's Account Settings. Fitango may require you to verify your termination notice by sending Fitango an additional termination request message, either by e-mail or through any other means, as a prerequisite for termination of your account. Your account on the Platform will terminate at the later of 10 days following your notification or the conclusion of your obligations toward users of your Expert's Services ("Date of Termination"), and from the date of termination you will no longer be able to access your account.
Notice of termination of your account, for any reason, whether out of your initiative, or Fitango's, does not release you from concluding prior to the Date of Termination, any Expert's Services that you have started providing a User, prior to the termination, unless Fitango requires you to cease providing the Expert's Services. After the Date of Termination, all Actionplans™ and/or other content that Users have purchased and/or downloaded through the Site as a result of your Expert's Services shall remain on the Site and shall be accessible by said Users in perpetuity.
Fitango will make performance and summary of activities reports available to you, including details and information, such as the number of sales, the sales amounts and rates, commissions paid and comparison with previous periods. The reports may also contain details on your listed Expert's Services, such as the number of page views of each listed service's web page, the number of actions taken by potential users, the number of Expert's Services sold and the price that each was sold. Fitango will make the reports available by sending them to you periodically, or by providing you with access to the relevant details on Fitango's system, or by any other means, in Fitango's sole discretion. From time to time, Fitango may add, omit or change the character and extent of information provided in the reports and may offer certain other reports.
