Publisher Terms & Conditions
Effective date: August 24, 2017
As a Publisher you are contracting directly with Memory Palace, a United States corporation. Although we may utilize Stripe, other third parties, or Memory Palace subsidiaries to facilitate your payments, your contract is between you and Memory Palace.
"Publisher Price" means the Palace price set by a Publisher within the price ranges allowed by Memory Palace in a Publisher account. All prices are in United States dollars (“USD”).
"Publisher Currency" means the currency of the Publisher’s bank account as registered with Stripe.
"Exchange Rate" means the rate used by Stripe for conversion from USD to the Publisher Currency, when such currency is not USD. The Exchange Rate is set by Stripe or other third parties, varies periodically, and does not include any fee or mark-up by Memory Palace. It may not be identical to the market rate in effect at the specific time a foreign currency conversion is processed and may include markups from financial institutions.
"Gross" means the amount actually received by Memory Palace for purchases by users for your Palace.
"Net" means Gross, less Taxes (pursuant to Section 11) and Stripe fees.
Memory Palace will pay you fifty percent (50%) of the Net received for your Palace less any applicable deductions such as user refunds and any amounts paid in connection with Memory Palace’s Marketing Programs if you choose to use them (“Standard Revenue Share”). If Memory Palace changes the Standard Revenue Share, we will provide you thirty (30) days notice via email or prominent notice on the Services.
So that we can pay you in a timely manner, you must have a Stripe account in good standing. Please note that while Stripe is able to accept payments from users anywhere in the world, Stripe itself is not available in all countries. Accordingly, you may not be able to register an account to receive a payout with Stripe. To see a list of all currently available Stripe countries, please visit: Stripe Global. The aforementioned notwithstanding, Stripe offers Atlas to easily incorporate a U.S. company, set up a U.S. bank account, and start accepting payments with Stripe.
You are responsible for providing Stripe with all identifying bank and tax information necessary for the payment of amounts due. Additionally, as a Publisher, you are responsible for determining whether you are eligible to be paid by a US company.
As a Publisher, you will be responsible for determining the Publisher Price you charge users for your Palace(s) from the range of prices allowed in your Publisher account. All pricing and sales will be in USD.
Memory Palace will handle billing and other fee interaction with users through Stripe.
As part of your participation on Memory Palace, you give us permission to share your published Palace(s), and information about you and your published Palace(s) with Memory Palace employees and selected partners (such as Stripe), for which you will not receive compensation.
Memory Palace may offer programs to help you market your Palaces (“Marketing Programs”). Currently available Marketing Programs and their terms are viewable at Marketing Programs and may be updated from time to time. If you choose to participate, the Publisher Revenue you receive from Memory Palace will be in accordance with the terms of the particular Marketing Program that applies to the sale of your Palace.
