General Relationship

RealSasl Provides the Venue
RealSasl makes the Site or Application available as an online venue where Members locate and connect with each other and take advantage of the Services. RealSasl is not involved in the dealing and contracting between Students and Teachers, or in the Teachers' delivery of Teaching Services to Students. RealSasl has no control over and does not guarantee the quality, safety or legality of Teaching Services advertised, the truth or accuracy of listings, the qualifications, background, or abilities of Teachers, the ability of Teachers to deliver Teaching Services, the ability of Students to pay for Teaching Services, or that a Student or Teacher can or will actually complete a transaction.

Performance of Lesson Contracts
Upon confirmation of Teacher Services, time, and price by both the Student and the Teacher, the Student agrees to purchase, and the Teacher agrees to deliver, the Teacher Services in accordance with the Terms of Service (collectively the "Lesson Contract"). You agree not to enter into any contractual provisions in conflict with the Terms of Service. The Student and Teacher each covenants and agrees to act with good faith and fair dealing in performance of the Lesson Contract. Furthermore, the Student and Teacher each acknowledges and agrees that the value, reputation, and goodwill of the Site or Application depend on their performance of the foregoing covenants and agreements. The Student and the Teacher therefore agree that RealSasl has the right to take such actions with respect to the Lesson Contract, including without limitation suspension, termination, or legal actions, as RealSasl in its sole discretion deems necessary to protect the value, reputation, and goodwill of the Site or Application.

Financial Terms for Students

For Students, you must use RealSasl Credits to receive Teaching Services from a Teacher. RealSasl provides Students with a "Wallet". The Wallet is used to hold RealSasl Credits, and to make payments with RealSasl Credits, for the purchase of Teaching Services.

Purchasing RealSasl Credits

In order to acquire RealSasl Credits, you use a third-party payment method (example: credit card, PayPal, and others) to pay for the necessary amount. By providing RealSasl with your credit card or bank account information, you authorize us to charge such credit card or bank account for the amounts stated on the payment page. Following a successful transaction, your Student Wallet will have the corresponding amount of RealSasl Credits.

No Refunds on Authorized Payments

Authorized payments are final. No refunds will be given for RealSasl Credits purchased.

Third Party Payment Method Fees

When purchasing RealSasl Credits, there may be fees that are charged to a Student by the third-party payment provider or the Student's bank. These fees are not under RealSasl's control, and RealSasl disclaims all liability in this regard. Whatever Payment Method you use may be subject to additional terms and conditions imposed by the applicable third-party payment provider. It is up to the user to review the terms and conditions before using a third-party payment method.

Cancelled Lesson Requests

If a Lesson Request is cancelled by the Student, declined by the teacher, or expires (not confirmed by the Teacher within the request period), the RealSasl Credits will be fully refunded to the Student’s Wallet.

Confirmation of Lessons

When a student makes a booking, you as the student authorise RealSasl to take credits from your online wallet to pay for the lesson, if however, the lesson was not confirmed by the Teacher within the requested period, the Realsasl Credits will be fully refunded to the Student’s Wallet.

Feedback and Ratings on Lessons

As a Student, when your lesson with the teacher was successfully completed, you will have the option to review the teacher, leaving feedback or a rating is optional. However, if you do so, you agree that your feedback will not be used to artificially raise or lower a teacher's rating, commit fraud, spam, insult, harass, threaten, or enact intentional misuse.

You agree to report violations or abuses of our rating and feedback system immediately by contacting Customer Service, and agree not to take any actions that undermine the integrity of the feedback system.

Disputes with Teachers

In the event there is a disagreement with a teacher, there are two phases to resolving the dispute.
Phase 1: Member Resolution – The Student and Teacher should discuss and reach agreement on what services should be provided, and whether the RealSasl Credits should be transferred to the Student or the Teacher. Any new terms that are agreed by the Student and Teacher should be submitted to RealSasl, for a written record.
Phase 2: RealSasl Dispute Judgment – If the Student and Teacher cannot agree, then the dispute will be handled by RealSasl. RealSasl will review any evidence and submitted materials pertaining to the Dispute and make a final ruling.

In the event that there is a dispute as to who canceled a package and the Student and Teacher cannot reach a compromise, then RealSasl will mediate the dispute. RealSasl's decision on the dispute is final.

31. Financial Terms for Teachers

For Teachers, you must use RealSasl Credits to receive payment for Teaching Services from a Student. RealSasl provides Teachers with a "Wallet". The Teacher Wallet is used to hold RealSasl Credits, and to make withdrawals of RealSasl Credits to a Teacher's personal funds.

By accepting a Lesson Request, you agree to provide your Teaching Services to the Student at the date and time set inside the request. You can choose to decline the request. If you do not respond, the request will automatically expire.

Cancelations of Lesson Requests

If RealSasl decides for any reason that it is necessary or desirable to cancel a confirmed Teacher Services Request made via the Site, Application and Services pursuant to RealSasl Terms of Service, you agree that RealSasl and the relevant Student or Teacher will not have any liability for such cancelations or refunds.

Disputes with Students

RealSasl Service Fees

RealSasl collects service fees when a Teaching Service ("lesson") is confirmed by the Student. For each transaction on the Site or Application, the fees are 30% of the total cost of the Teacher Service ("lesson"). Fees due to RealSasl are deducted upon transfer of RealSasl Credits to the Teacher's Teacher Wallet.

The balance shown on the Teacher's Teacher Wallet is the full balance after all fees have been deducted. Amounts may be rounded up or down as described the “Rounding Off” section.

RealSasl does not charge any fees for the Teacher to register or create a listing for Teacher Services on RealSasl. To the extent any refunds are issued, service fees will be based on the amount that is not refunded back to the Student.

Circumvention of Service Fees

Teachers agree not to engage in any action or activity meant to circumvent the service fees. Prohibited practices include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Suggesting, soliciting, or accepting payment by other means outside the RealSasl Payment Service.
  • Failing to report accurate or final service prices on the Site, or a service price different than that agreed between Student and Teacher.
Withdrawal of Funds

When withdrawing RealSasl Credits, there may be fees that are charged to a Teacher by the third-party payment method or the Teacher's bank. These fees are not under RealSasl's control, and RealSasl disclaims all liability in this regard. Whatever third-party payment method that is used by Teachers may be subject to additional terms and conditions imposed by the third-party payment provider. It is up to the Teacher to review the terms and conditions before using a third-party payment method.

Withholding or Delaying Disbursement of Funds

If RealSasl reasonably concludes, based on information available to RealSasl, that a Teacher's actions may have resulted or will result in a significant number of disputes, refunds or other claims from users who purchased their Teaching Services, RealSasl reserves the right to delay or stop the disbursement of all funds accrued in a Teacher's Teacher Wallet. If RealSasl concludes that a teacher has violated the Terms (including the Privacy Policy, Community Policy, and Teacher Terms), RealSasl can refuse to disburse the funds accrued in the Teacher's Teacher Wallet and debit such funds from the Teacher Wallet.

RealSasl's Rights Regarding Reimbursements

RealSasl reserves the right to seek reimbursement from a Teacher if RealSasl, in its sole discretion, (a) provides a refund to a Student if the Teacher cannot promptly deliver the purchased Teacher Services, or (b) discover erroneous or duplicate transactions. The Teacher authorizes RealSasl to obtain such reimbursement by deducting from future payments owed to the Teacher, reversing any credits to the Teacher's Account, debiting the Teacher's bank account, or seeking such reimbursement from the Teacher by any other lawful means.

Rounding Off

RealSasl may, in its sole discretion, round up or round down amounts that are payable from or to Teachers or Students to the nearest whole functional base unit in which the currency is denominated (e.g. to the nearest dollar); for example RealSasl will round up an amount of $101.50 to $102.00, and $101.49 to $101.00.

32. Taxes

A teacher understands and agrees that they are solely responsible for determining their applicable Tax reporting requirements and obligations relating to applicable Taxes for their services. They are also solely responsible for remitting to the relevant authority any Taxes included or received. RealSasl cannot and does not offer Tax-related advice to any Members.

Teachers, tutors, assistant teachers and Sign Language interpreters in South Africa - RealSasl might report the income of Teachers, tutors, assistant teachers and Sign Language interpreters in South Africa based in South Africa.

33. RealSasl Credits Policies

RealSasl Credits are not Bank Deposits

You acknowledge that: (1) RealSasl is not a bank and the Student Wallet and Teacher Wallet is a payment service rather than a banking service; and (2) RealSasl is not acting as a trustee or fiduciary with respect to your funds, but is acting only as a custodian. (3) REALSASL IS NOT A BANK, AND AMOUNTS TRANSFERRED THROUGH OR STORED IN THE STUDENT WALLET OR TEACHER WALLET ARE NOT INSURED DEPOSITS.

RealSasl Credits Expiration Policy

RealSasl Credits in a member account will be valid for as long as the member remains active on RealSasl. If the member has not logged into his/her account at least once in the previous year, the RealSasl Credits will expire. For a member to keep their RealSasl Credits active, they must login at least once every year to their RealSasl account. RealSasl Credits are then valid for another 1 year following the most recent login date.

Foreign Exchange Risk

The Student Wallet and Teacher Wallet Services operates in RealSasl Credits which are tied to US Dollars. RealSasl is not responsible for currency fluctuations that occur when billing or crediting a credit or debit card denominated in a currency other than USD, nor is RealSasl responsible for currency fluctuations that occur when receiving or sending payment via third party payments when purchasing RealSasl Credits or withdrawing a RealSasl Credits balance.

RealSasl Credits Limitations

RealSasl Credits are valid only when purchased on RealSasl or through authorized RealSasl partners. RealSasl Credits in the form of RealSasl Gift Cards or Vouchers cannot be resold or redeemed for cash. RealSasl Credits redeemed from Gift Cards or Vouchers purchased through unofficial sources or channels are subject to cancelation without notice.

34. RealSasl's Rights Regarding User Accounts and Funds

Security and financial fraud

As a security measure, RealSasl may impose transaction limits on some or all Students and Teachers relating to the value of any transaction or disbursement, the cumulative value of all transactions or disbursements during a period of time, or the number of transactions per day or other period of time. We will impose these limits before any services are rendered if we determine it is necessary for security reasons or the prevention of fraud.

RealSasl reserves the right to void RealSasl Credit purchases if purchases are found to be fraudulent. This includes RealSasl Credits that have been redeemed from fraudulent RealSasl Gift Card purchases.

Interest compensation

RealSasl may earn interest or other compensation from the balances in bank accounts that result from the timing difference between the payment for Teacher Services and the disbursement of the corresponding funds to Teachers. Teachers and Students are not entitled to any such interest or other compensation.

Reservation of Rights for Erroneous Transactions

RealSasl reserves the right to seek reimbursement from any Teacher or Student. The Teacher or Student will reimburse RealSasl if RealSasl discovers erroneous or duplicate transactions for the amount of such transaction from such Teacher or Student. RealSasl may obtain such reimbursement by deducting from future payments owed to such Teacher, by reversing any credits to such Teacher's bank account, or by seeking reimbursement from such Teacher by any other lawful means.

Prohibition on Friendly Fraud

"Friendly Fraud" is when a person initiates a fraud dispute with a payment provider, claiming that their credit card (or other payment method) was not intended to be used. Because RealSasl does not offer refunds, users that disagree with the policy have tried to use friendly fraud to receive a refund.

This type of behaviour is illegal and prohibited by all payment providers. RealSasl also strictly opposes friendly fraud. If friendly fraud is discovered, the student's account and wallet will be deactivated, purchased credits will be confiscated, and the user will be noted as a financial security risk.

In the case of honest mistakes, RealSasl can reverse the transaction. We strongly advise students to contact RealSasl customer service (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or contact us on the APP) to resolve any financial disputes.
