Welcome to the StudyAnsh
StudyAnsh is an online academic learning assistance and tutoring marketplace where you can get answers to questions you are struggling with and get paid to answer questions on topics you know a lot about. There are three categories of persons (“users”) using the Site: Visitors, who merely view the Site without posting any content; Purchasers (the people asking questions and purchasing answers to questions posted on the Site, called “Query Transactions”); and Contributors, the people answering the questions posed by Purchasers and selling answers to Purchasers (which is the other side of a Query Transaction). Potential Purchasers may simply post a question they want answered on the site. StudyAnsh will make these questions available to the Contributors. Contributors may post answers to these questions, called tutorials, and Purchasers, in turn, may use their PayPal or other online payment or credit card accounts to buy them. Any user or Visitor can also be either a Purchaser or a Contributor or both. Users, visitors, Purchasers, and Contributors will be collectively referred to as “you” or “your” in these Terms.
Rules Governing Public Contributions and Interactive Features. You are entirely responsible for the content of, and any harm resulting from, any of your postings or submissions to the Site (collectively, “Contributions”). When you create or make available a Contribution, you represent and warrant that you:
2. Grant of License to Use Contributions
By making a Contribution to the Site, you grant StudyAnsh a perpetual, non-exclusive (meaning you are free to license your Contribution to anyone else in addition to StudyAnsh), fully-paid, royalty-free (meaning that StudyAnsh is not required to pay you to use your Contribution), sublicensable (meaning that StudyAnsh can sublicense its rights to, for example, third-party hosted service providers who host the Site), and worldwide (because the Internet and the Site are global in reach) license to use, modify, create derivative works of, publicly perform, publicly display, reproduce, and distribute the Contribution for the purpose of displaying the content on the Site and selling it to Purchasers.
3. Honesty Policy
We are committed to creating and maintaining a culture of learning and integrity. Sometimes this is pretty easy: If a student asks someone to write a paper or take a final exam for them, it's obviously cheating. We explicitly warn against posting such questions, scan for them, and remove any we become aware of. Sometimes it's more difficult: If a student asks for an explanation of a Matematics equation, how do we determine they have both permission and an honest intention to learn? Ultimately, we have put strong measures and language in place to discourage abuse, but it is up to you to act with honor and integrity.
Don't ask people to complete entire assignments or write essays for you. Don't ask people to take quizzes, exams, tests, or final exams for you. Don't post a question unless you have your instructor’s implicit or explicit permission. For instance, don't ask someone to proofread a paper for you if your instructor says this is against his or her rules. Don't post a question without an honest intention to learn from your tutor's help. If you simply turn in a tutor’s help as your own work, you're cheating. If you are found cheating, you will be banned from ever using StudyAnsh again.
Our Academic Honesty Policy for Tutors and Contributors is simple. We want you to earn lots of money on StudyAnsh. Remember, though, that you have a duty to teach, not help students cheat. Provide complete tutorials and explanations, not just answers. Your tutorial must include more help and explanations than what students would ordinarily turn in on their own. Never write essays or papers for people. Never complete finals, quizzes, or tests for a student.
If you are found helping other students cheat, you will be banned forever and will forfeit any remaining balance or claim to your tutorials! Good solutions with complete explanations are purchased more often than short solutions with only answers. The solutions that earn the most are the ones that help people learn. Students award the best ratings to tutors who provide good explanations and legitimate tutoring. Short answers receive poor feedback and don't earn much money.
4. Protection of Username and Password
You may never use another's account without permission. When creating your account, you must provide accurate and complete information. You are solely responsible for the activity that occurs on your account, and you must keep your account password secure. You must notify StudyAnsh immediately of any breach of security or unauthorized use of your account. Although StudyAnsh will not be liable for your losses caused by any unauthorized use of your account, you may be liable for the losses of StudyAnsh or others due to such unauthorized use.
