Terms of Use

Last Revised - 4 February 2016

By using the website located at https://quickworksheets.net (“the Site”) you agree to be bound by these terms (“Terms of Use”), which will be published at https://quickworksheets.net/legal.php. If you choose to upgrade to a Premium Account, you additionally agree to be bound by the Special Terms for Premium Account Holders detailed below. If you do not agree to these Terms of Use you must immediately cease to access the Site.

Quickworksheets, a business registered in South Australia (“Quickworksheets”) may, at its sole discretion, periodically make amendments to these terms. Your continued use of the Site constitutes agreement to the most recent revision of the published Terms of Use. If you choose to upgrade to a Premium Account, you agree to be bound by the Special Terms for Premium Account Holders that applied at the date of your most recent payment to Quickworksheets.

1. The Site is provided “AS IS”

The Site is provided "AS IS" and on an "AS AVAILABLE" basis. Quickworksheets excludes all representations and warranties (whether express or implied by law), including the implied warranties of satisfactory quality, fitness for a particular purpose, non-infringement, compatibility, security and accuracy. Quickworksheets does not guarantee the availability, completeness or performance of the Site in any manner. Quickworksheets reserves the right to make changes to the available services and content of the Site, or to cease to provide services or content on the Site at any time, without any liability to you. (However, if you have Upgraded to a Premium Account, you may be eligible for a refund in accordance with the Special Terms for Premium Account Holders.)

Quickworksheets maintains complete control and discretion over the management of access to the Site. Quickworksheets may, at any time, edit or remove your account or deny access by you or from any IP address, for any or no reason. (If Quickworksheets takes such actions and you have Upgraded to a Premium Account, you may be eligible for a refund in accordance with the Special Terms for Premium Account Holders.)

2. Account Types

Quickworksheets currently offers two types of account: A free account (“Free Account”) and a paid account (“Premium Account”). Quickworksheets maintains complete discretion over the types of account it offers and the pricing of accounts, including the right to remove the option of a free account at any time.

3. Special Terms for Premium Account Holders

If you upgrade or activate your account by paying the upgrade fee (“Upgrade”), your Free Account will become a Premium Account for the period agreed between you and Quickworksheets. If you Upgrade through a monthly subscription, this period is defined as one calendar month. Following the expiry of this period your Premium Account will revert to a Free Account and you will cease to have access to the benefits that a Premium Account offers, unless you Upgrade for a further period.

If you have Upgraded, and Quickworksheets terminates your account in accordance with these Terms of Use, or if Quickworksheets permanently ceases to provide you access to the Site, you will be entitled to a pro-rata refund in relation to the days remaining on your Premium Account that you have not been able to access the Site. You must apply for this refund by contacting Quickworksheets within 60 days of the above event occurring to arrange for the method of payment for the refund. If, at the end of this period, you have not contacted Quickworksheets to arrange for payment, you will cease to be eligible for the pro-rata refund. Quickworksheets reserves the right to require that your refund is issued through our payment processor Paypal, in which case you will be required to sign up with Paypal for a free Paypal account in order to receive your refund.

Quickworksheets provides a 30 day money-back guarantee on prepaid Upgrades. If you are unsatisfied with your purchase you may contact us within 30 calendar days of Upgrading to request a full refund. Once your refund has been processed your Premium Account will revert to a Free Account and you will cease to have access to the benefits that a Premium Account offers. (The following exclusions apply: This money-back guarantee is not offered to Pay Monthly subscribers, group purchases, or if payment is made by direct bank transfer.)

Except as stated in this clause, or as required by the laws of the State of South Australia, Quickworksheets is not obliged to issue refunds to Premium Account holders. Any refund issued as an act of good will at the discretion of Quickworksheets does not imply the existence of a legal obligation for Quickworksheets to issue such a refund, nor set a precedent for the future.

Quickworksheets, an Australian-based business, is not required to charge Goods and Services Tax (GST) or sales tax under Australian law.

4. Account Users and Security

Each Quickworksheets user account shall be used by one user only. For the purposes of these Terms of Use, a user is a natural person and not an incorporated entity. Multiple persons (such as multiple teachers at the same school) shall each have their own separate account to use the Site. Accounts are not transferrable between persons.

You are responsible for safeguarding the password that you use to access the Site. You agree not to disclose your password to any third party, nor to publish your password online or in any other manner. You agree to take sole responsibility for account activities that take place under your username, whether or not you have authorized such activities. You shall notify Quickworksheets immediately upon discovering any unauthorised use of your account.

5. Restrictions on Use of the Site

Quickworksheets is for personal and educational use only. Quickworksheets recognises that education usually takes place within the framework of a commercial relationship, and thus grants you permission to use worksheets created with the Site when undertaking a commercial activity provided that those worksheets do not form the principal basis upon which you make a profit. (An example of acceptable and unacceptable usage under this clause: You may profit from providing a language lesson where a component of the lesson is the use of worksheets created with the Site. You may not use the Site to make a workbook which you sell for profit.) You shall not sell worksheets created with the Site.

If you have a Free Account, you shall not amend or remove the footer or Quickworksheets logo that is automatically attached to worksheets created using the Site. This applies to originals and copies alike.

You shall not input data to this site by way of an automated “robot” or computer program. You shall not provide access to the features of the Site from another website. You shall not extract output worksheet data from the site to display or edit by any other means.

6. Lawful Use

You agree to use the Site for lawful purposes only. In your use of the Site you shall not submit any defamatory or illegal material of any nature, and you shall not infringe the intellectual property rights of any person.

You agree to indemnify Quickworksheets and its agents against any third party claim arising from or in any way related to your use of the Site, including any liability or expense arising from claims, losses, damages (actual and consequential), lawsuits and litigation costs, of every kind and nature. Quickworksheets will provide you with notice of any such claim.

7. Ownership of Intellectual Property

Unless otherwise noted, all of the Site’s intellectual property, including copyright over worksheet design and layout, vests in Quickworksheets. Quickworksheets grants you a perpetual, royalty free licence to use and make copies of worksheets that you create with the Site, provided your usage is in accordance with these Terms of Use.

You will own copyright over the content that you enter into the Site when creating worksheets using the Site (“Your Content”), however copyright over the design and layout of any completed worksheet shall remain vested in Quickworksheets. You agree to grant Quickworksheets a perpetual, world-wide, royalty free, non-exclusive license to transmit, store, retrieve, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish and display Your Content. If you choose to share Your Content with other users of the Site, you agree to extend this license to any user of the Site who accesses your shared content.

8. Privacy

You agree to the terms of the Privacy Policy. You agree that Quickworksheets may disclose information (including personal information) that you provide if we are required to do so in order to comply with a valid legal request (such as a valid government disclosure request through application of applicable legislation, or a court order), or as otherwise allowed under these terms and the Privacy Policy.

9. Preservation of Data

You are solely responsible for the preservation of Your Content. Even though Quickworksheets provides online storage services for Your Content, Quickworksheets shall have no responsibility to preserve it, and shall accept no liability if any of Your Content becomes unavailable or is lost. If you have a Premium Account that is subsequently downgraded to a Free Account, online access to Your Content will be reduced to the level that is currently available to Free Account holders.

Quickworksheets recommends that you save your worksheets to your own computer and make appropriate backups of this data.

Quickworksheets may delete dormant accounts and associated data if they have been inactive for an extended period of time.

10. Limitation of Liability

You agree that use of and reliance upon the Site is entirely at your own risk. Quickworksheets and its agents exclude all liability (including for negligence and under contract) to you or anyone else in respect of any loss or damage (including special, indirect or consequential loss or damage) arising from or in connection with use of the Site.

Should a data breach occur Quickworksheets shall not be held liable for the consequences of loss or dissemination of the data it holds, nor the actions of anyone who obtains it.

11. General

If any term or part thereof of these Terms of Use is held by a court to be invalid or unenforceable such term or part thereof shall be deemed deleted and these Terms of Use shall otherwise remain in full force and effect.

The delay of Quickworksheets to exercise or enforce any right in these terms does not waive Quickworksheets’ right to enforce or exercise such right in the future.

These Terms of Use shall be governed by and interpreted in accordance with the laws of the State of South Australia, Australia. The courts of South Australia shall have exclusive jurisdiction over any legal disputes. Any proceeding brought in an Australian Federal Court shall be instituted in the Adelaide Registry of that Federal Court and shall not be transferred to another registry of the Federal Court.

These Terms of Use, together with the policies referenced therein, constitute all of the terms and conditions agreed between you and Quickworksheets, and supersede any prior agreements, whether written or oral. Any additional or different terms or conditions in any written or oral communication from you to Quickworksheets do not form part of this agreement.

Privacy Policy

Last Revised - 2 August 2017

By using the website located at https://quickworksheets.net (“the Site”) you agree to the collection and use of your personal information as described in this policy.

Email Address

If you create a user account on the Site we may send you notices related to your account or about changes to the services provided on Quickworksheets.net. We will not send you promotional mailings unless you opt-in to receiving news and special offers from us. You may opt-out of promotional mailings at any time.

If you purchase a Premium Account upgrade we will send information about your Quickworksheets account (including your e-mail address) and the information you enter at payment time to the relevant payment processor. If you enter your payment details on our site the payment processor will be Stripe. If you choose to pay by Paypal the payment processor will be Paypal. The information they receive will be subject to their own privacy policies. They may use your e-mail address to send you a receipt for the payment.

If you purchase a group package of Premium Account upgrades, we will disclose the e-mail address of the person you nominate as the Group Administrator to other members of the group. This is so that group members know how to contact the group administrator if they have any questions about their account.

Avatars (Profile Pictures)

We use Gravatar to provide avatar images for this site. In order to generate these avatars we send an encrypted version of your e-mail address (called a 'hash') to Gravatar's servers. Gravatar cannot use this hash to send you unsolicited e-mail. If you decide to customise your avatar you will need to sign up for a Gravatar/Wordpress.com account. Any resulting privacy implications for this action will be an issue between you and the owners of Gravatar.

Content You Make

If you create worksheets using the Site the content you enter will be stored by Quickworksheets. This is to enable the "My Previous Worksheets" feature of the Site to function and to assist Quickworksheets with discovering bugs and improving the Site. The content you enter will not be made available to other Quickworksheets users unless you choose to share it using the "Share" feature of the Site, in which case it will be made available to other users and guests of the Site in perpetuity.

If you choose to upload your own images to the site to use in your worksheets we will store these, and make them accessible, at long and unique web addresses (URLs) so that they can be inserted into your worksheets. These URLs are public insofaras anyone who has the URL will be able to view the image, but because they are long and randomly-generated they will be very difficult for someone else to guess. This implementation is necessary so that you can download an HTML file of your worksheet and still be able to view your images.

If you share a worksheet that has your own images in it, those images will be available to anyone who views the shared worksheet.

Closing Your Account

You may choose to close your account at any time by using the Close Account link. Once we have closed your account you will no longer receive communication from us. Any of Your Content that you have expressly chosen to share with other Quickworksheets users will remain available to them and will not be deleted. Residual copies of your information may remain on our servers and in our backup system.

Visitor Analytics

As you use the Site we collect information that your browser sends us. This information includes your Internet Protocol address. We use this information for internal business purposes, site features, and to prevent abuse of the Site's resources. To facilitate various site features and analyse site usage we, or third parties, may store cookies on your computer.

Like millions of other websites we use Google Analytics to track who visits the Site and how they use it. This helps us better understand who visits the site, what technologies (such as browsers and devices) they use, and what content they view. Google may also use this information and link it with information that Google holds about visits to other websites.

Location of Data

Any information we collect may be transferred to and stored on computer servers in any country where we have storage facilities. This is primarily the United States of America and Australia, but due to the global nature of the internet data will pass through, and may be stored in, other countries as well. By using the Site you consent to any such transfer and storage of your information.

Comments and Shared Worksheets Policy

Last Revised - 31 July 2015

If you share a worksheet using the Site's "Share" feature, Quickworksheets and its users may access and use your Shared Worksheet in any way that is not contrary to the Terms of Use. This means other users may use, adapt and download Shared Worksheets, without attribution. Quickworksheets may also use Shared Worksheets to create Word Lists and other tools to benefit our users.

All comments and Shared Worksheet content will be reviewed by Quickworksheets. Quickworksheets maintains complete discretion over whether or not to publish a comment or shared worksheet, and whether to retrospectively remove a comment or Shared Worksheet from the Site.

We are looking for constructive comments on shared worksheets, ideas, and teaching tips from educators with experience using materials they have made with the Site. We reserve the right not to publish comments that we deem to be spammy, rude, profane, in poor taste, reveal personal information, or that may be libellous.

The views expressed in users’ comments and shared worksheet content do not necessarily reflect those of Quickworksheets and its owners.

Comments and Shared Worksheets are classed as “Your Content” under the Terms of Use.
