3. Selling Notes

Only Members are able to submit Eligible Notes to Nexus Notes on the Nexus Notes Website.

When you submit an Eligible Note to Nexus Notes, you must include the following information:

  • the subject/class, faculty and university the Note relates to;
  • the grade achieved for subject;
  • the year subject was studied; and
  • a copy of your academic transcript (if requested by Nexus Notes).

Each time you submit an Eligible Note for approval, you represent and warrant, with respect to each Eligible Note submitted that:

  • you have all legal rights necessary to submit, offer for sale and sell that Eligible Note (including all Intellectual Property Rights in and to the Eligible Note) to Nexus Notes;
  • you have not granted any other person any licence or other rights to use, reproduce, publish, or communicate the Eligible Note for any purpose; and
  • submitting, offering for sale, displaying on the Nexus Notes Website and selling that Note does not infringe the rights, including Intellectual Property Rights, of any other person.

If you submit an Eligible Note on the Nexus Notes Website, Nexus Notes will review the Eligible Note in order to determine whether it should be approved.  If Nexus Notes approves the Eligible Note, Nexus Notes will issue a notice to you (Approval Notice) and the Eligible Note will become an Approved Note. You acknowledge that Nexus Notes will exercise full discretion in conducting this approval process, and Nexus Notes may refuse to approve an Eligible Note for any reason and without providing any explanation to you.

By uploading an Eligible Note to the Nexus Notes Website:

  • you grant to Nexus Notes a perpetual, irrevocable, worldwide, royalty free licence to use, reproduce, and communicate the Eligible Note for the purposes of assessing whether or not to approve the Eligible Note; and
  • you agree that if the Eligible Note is approved in accordance with the process described above, so that it becomes an Approved Note, then with effect from the date of the Approval Notice you assign all right, title and interest in the Approved Note (including all Intellectual Property Rights in the Approved Note) to Nexus Notes. Upon the assignment becoming effective, Nexus Notes grants you a perpetual, worldwide, royalty-free, non-sub-licensable licence to use the Approved Notes solely for your own personal use (and not for any commercial purpose).

Sellers agree to pay Nexus Notes a commission fee equal to 50% of the sale price (excluding GST) of each Approved Note sold on the Nexus Notes Website.

Sellers authorise Nexus Notes to collect payments from Buyers each time the Seller sells an Approved Note, to remit these payments to the Seller and to deduct from the payment an amount equal to any commission fees or taxes due from the Seller to Nexus Notes and any donations made to AIME before remitting any payments from Buyers to the Seller.

7. GST

Unless expressly stated otherwise in these Terms and Conditions, all amounts payable under these Terms and Conditions are exclusive of GST.

If a party is required under this agreement to indemnify another party, or pay or reimburse costs of another party, that party agrees to pay the relevant amount less any input tax credits to which the other party is entitled.
