"Price Matrix" means the table available in the Pricing and Promotion Policy which will provide the matrix of Base Prices available from which You can select the Base Price for Your Courses.

The Company reserves the right to make changes to the Price Matrix at any time.

As part of Your participation on CPDFormula, You give Us permission to share Your Course, and information about You and the Course with CPDFormula employees and selected partners, for which You will not receive compensation.

CPDFormula offers certain programs that can help you market your Courses (“Marketing Programs”). Marketing Programs may include, but are not limited to, CPDFormula's Package Credits Program. The complete list and terms of the currently available Marketing Programs are available under our Pricing and Promotions Policy, which may be updated from time to time. If You choose to participate, the fee You receive from CPDFormula will be in accordance with the terms of the particular Marketing Program that applies to the sale of Your Course.

You acknowledge that the amounts paid by Students for Courses sold through Marketing Programs are not fixed, and CPDFormula has the sole discretion to determine those amounts and which Courses to offer as part of such Marketing Programs. Further, CPDFormula does not guarantee any minimum level of success in connection with the Marketing Programs, and its selection of Courses to include is not an endorsement of those Courses, or of You. If You do not wish to participate in certain Marketing Programs, log into Your Account and opt out of them.

You may be able to increase Your sales by promoting Your Courses by using a coupon code that You have created on CPDFormula. For additional information on Instructor created coupons please see Our Pricing and Promotions Policy.

  1. Payments

If You do not opt into any of CPDFormula’s optional Marketing Programs, We will pay You a set amount fee of the Net Amount received for Your Course less any applicable deductions such as Student refunds (“Standard Fee Payments”). If CPDFormula changes the Standard Fee Share, we will provide you thirty (30) days notice via email or prominent notice on the Services.

So that Company can pay you in a timely manner, you must have a Bank account in good standing and keep CPDFormula apprised as to the correct email address associated with your Bank account. Payment will be made within forty-five (45) days of the end of the month in which the fee for a Course was received. You are responsible for providing Company with all identifying and tax information necessary for the payment of amounts due.

As an Instructor, you are responsible for determining whether you are eligible to be paid by a Canadian Company.

  1. Refunds

As an Instructor, you acknowledge and agree that Students have the right to receive a refund, as set forth in section 10 of CPDFormula’s Terms of Use. Neither Instructors nor CPDFormula shall receive any payments, fees or commissions for any transactions for which a refund has been granted pursuant to section 10 thereof. In the event that a Student requests a refund for a Course after CPDFormula has sent an Instructor payment for that Course, CPDFormula reserves the right to either (1) deduct the amount of such refund from the next payment to be sent to that Instructor, or (2) require that Instructor to refund any amounts refunded to Students for Instructor's Course to the extent no additional payments are due from CPDFormula to Instructor or such payments due to the Instructor are insufficient to cover the amounts refunded to Students.
