Terms of Service


TERMS OF SERVICE

The following describes the Terms of Service of The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs Marketing Cooperative (referred to as TBOTEMC.)  The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs, The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs II, The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs III, and so on, refers to the designated Blogspot.com blogs which are associated with The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs Marketing Cooperative.  


Please note that The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs Marketing Cooperative was created by Victoria Leon and is not sponsored by Teachers Pay Teachers.

Description of Service:

The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs Marketing Cooperative is made up of teachers who sell their lessons at www.TeachersPayTeachers.com (referred to as Teachers Pay Teachers or TpT.)  TBOTEMC is not affiliated with or supported by the owners of TpT.  Members of TBOTEMC work together to create and market their educational products.  

Please read the Terms of Service at http://www.thebestofteacherentrepreneursmarketingcooperative.com/2014/01/the-best-of-teacher-entrepreneurs_10.html before you begin the process of becoming a member of The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs Marketing Cooperative.  

Membership:

Members of The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs Marketing Cooperative must be sellers at www.TeachersPayTeachers.com.  Members may sell their lessons at other sites, but must also be a seller at TpT.  Members must use a gmail.com email address to register.  There are many Google docs used in TBOTEMC’s website and members need a Gmail account to access them.  Members may sign up for a free Gmail account at mail.google.com.  

Membership Fees:

People may purchase the one year membership to The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs Marketing Cooperative for $50.00 at http://www.thebestofteacherentrepreneursmarketingcooperative.com/2014/01/the-best-of-teacher-entrepreneurs.html.  This fee allows access to The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs Marketing Cooperative for one year (for example, August 20, 2014 – August 19, 2015.)  

The day the Welcome Letter is emailed to the member stating that the person is officially a member of The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs Marketing Cooperative will set the beginning day of the membership period. 

Members may continue to be a part of TBOTEMC by purchasing another one year membership before or on their renewal date.  If the member decides to purchase a new membership before the renewal payment is due, the actual renewal day for that year will begin the new membership period and not the date of the membership presale.  For example, suppose the member’s first year’s membership in TBOTEMC was from August 20, 2014 – August 19, 2015.  Thus, the member’s renewal payment would be due on August 20, 2015.  However, the member wants to take advantage of a sale price on July 15, 2015.  The member may purchase the one year membership early on July 15, 2015, but to be fair, the member’s second year membership period will be from August 20, 2015 – August 19, 1016.  


All members who are renewing their TBOTEMC membership must pay for a new annual membership at http://www.thebestofteacherentrepreneursmarketingcooperative.com/2014/01/the-best-of-teacher-entrepreneurs.html and resubmit their information on The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs Marketing Cooperative’s Registration Form at http://www.thebestofteacherentrepreneursmarketingcooperative.com/2014/01/the-best-of-teacher-entrepreneurs_5214.html by their renewal date (the day after their current TBOTEMC membership period is over) or they will no longer be able to post their TpT products and have return rights to their original TBOTE blog.  


A Welcome Renewal Letter will be emailed to the continuing TBOTEMC members and will state the new membership period and which TBOTE blog the member will be able to have access to (for example, The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs, The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs II, The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs III, etc.) 

Some TBOTEMC members have received free lifetime memberships to The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs Marketing Cooperative.  The member must still resubmit their information on The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs Marketing Cooperative’s Registration Form at http://www.thebestofteacherentrepreneursmarketingcooperative.com/2014/01/the-best-of-teacher-entrepreneurs_5214.html by their renewal date or they will lose the return rights to their original TBOTE blog.  

Registration Process: 

Once the person has purchased the annual membership to The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs Marketing Cooperative, the person needs to begin the process of gaining access into The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs Marketing Cooperative’s website:

  • Go to www.crteacher2.com.
  • Click CREATE NEW ACCOUNT in the top right hand corner.  
  • Create a username and password.  Be sure that the email address is from your Gmail account.  Type your first and last name, city, and country.  After you have copied the CAPTCHA numbers click CREATE MY NEW ACCOUNT.
  • An email will be sent by www.crteacher2.com using the Gmail email address from the application.  Please confirm the new account to continue with the registration process.  You may have to check your spam folder if you do not receive the confirmation email.  

The buyer must complete The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs Marketing Cooperative’s Registration Form at http://www.thebestofteacherentrepreneursmarketingcooperative.com/2014/01/the-best-of-teacher-entrepreneurs_5214.html.  BE SURE TO INCLUDE THE GMAIL ADDRESS YOU USED TO SIGN UP FOR YOUR CRTeacher 2 ACCOUNT.

The date and time a member correctly completes The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs Marketing Cooperative’s Registration Form will determine the person’s position on The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs Blog Seniority List.  This list will be used to determine which blog the member will be able to post on (for example, The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs, The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs II, The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs III, etc.)  If the TBOTEMC Registration Form is incomplete or does not include the Gmail.com email account used to open the CRTeacher 2 account, the registration process cannot continue until a new correctly completed TBOTEMC Registration Form is submitted.  

Victoria Leon or the agents of The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs Marketing Cooperative will verify the purchase of the one year membership.  The new member will then be added to TBOTEMC’s website and several Google docs used throughout the site.  The person will be emailed a Welcome Letter stating that he or she is officially a member of The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs Marketing Cooperative. 

The day the Welcome Letter is emailed to the member stating that the person is officially a member of The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs Marketing Cooperative will set the beginning day of the membership period.   Please be patient.  Care will be taken to register each new member in a timely manner…hopefully within 48 hours.  Please email Victoria Leon at vleon999@yahoo.com if you do not receive the email which confirms your membership into The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs Marketing Cooperative.  

The new member will have 24/7 access to The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs Marketing Cooperative’s website by following these directions:

  • Go to www.crteacher2.com.
  • Go to the LOGIN box and type your username and password in the boxes.

Termination:

The person’s membership period to The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs Marketing Cooperative is stated on the Welcome Letter or Welcome Renewal Letter.  If the member does not renew his or her membership and correctly completes The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs Marketing Cooperative’s Registration Form at  http://www.thebestofteacherentrepreneursmarketingcooperative.com/2014/01/the-best-of-teacher-entrepreneurs_5214.html on the day after the current membership period is over, the person will no longer have access to The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs Marketing Cooperative’s website.  All of the person’s information in the Google docs will be removed. The person will lose his or her position on TBOTE Blog Seniority List and be placed at the bottom of this list. The person will also lose access and return rights to the designated TBOTE blog he or she has been posting their TpT products on (for example, The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs, The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs II, The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs III, etc.)  

If the person decides to renew his or her membership to The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs Marketing Cooperative, but it was after the current membership period had expired, the person will be able to post on the latest version of The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs blog which may not be the person’s original version (for example, since the person did not renew his or her membership by the renewal date, but did finally renew membership for a new year, the person will now be able to post his or her TpT products on The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs III, but will no longer be able to post on The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs II.) 

To uphold the integrity of The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs Marketing Cooperative, Victoria Leon and the agents of The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs Marketing Cooperative, respectfully reserves the right to exclude any member from being a part of The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs Marketing Cooperative if the member repeatedly violates the above rules.  

The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs Blogspot.com blogs and The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs Marketing Cooperative Word Press blog – Blogs’ Terms of Use:

TBOTEMC members will be able to create one post a day at their designated Blogspot.com TBOTE blog (for example, The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs, The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs II, The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs III, etc.)  Members may advertise their free products, priced products, sales, promotions, and articles on their designated TBOTE blog.  Each member of the collaborative blog will be responsible for his or her own posts.

Blogspot.com only allows 100 collaborators to post to one blog.  Thus, we will have 95 TBOTEMC members registered on a particular blog and have the first 5 spaces reserved for TBOTEMC administrators and staff members.

The links to all of the TBOTE blog posts will be advertised on all of the blogs.

The date and time the member correctly completes The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs Marketing Cooperative’s Registration Form will determine the person’s position on The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs Blog Seniority List.  The TBOTE Blog Seniority List then determines which blog (for example, The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs, The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs II, The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs III, etc.) the member will be able to post his or her TpT products.

If a TBOTEMC member does not renew his or her membership at http://www.thebestofteacherentrepreneursmarketingcooperative.com/2014/01/the-best-of-teacher-entrepreneurs.html and correctly completes a new submission of The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs Marketing Cooperative’s Registration Form at http://www.thebestofteacherentrepreneursmarketingcooperative.com/2014/01/the-best-of-teacher-entrepreneurs_5214.html by the renewal date (the day after the current TBOTEMC membership period is over), the member will no longer have access and return rights to his or her original TBOTE blog.  Thus, all members of TBOTEMC will then be able to move one step up in The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs Blog Seniority List.  Since a particular blog now has 94 members instead of 95 members, the person who is in the first position of the succeeding blog will now have access to the preceding blog (e.g. a member who posted on The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs II does not renew his or her membership by the day after the current TBOTEMC membership is over…there is now a new position open in The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs II…the member who is in the first seniority position at The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs III will be able to now post TpT products at The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs II…)  Using this same scenario, since the member has now left The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs III, the member who is in the first position at The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs IV will now be able to post at The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs III…and so on…

The TBOTEMC member who will be moving to a new TBOTE blog will receive an invitation in the Gmail email address which was stated in The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs Marketing Cooperative’s Registration Form.  The member will have 36 hours from the time the invitation was sent to accept the invitation.  If the member does not accept the invitation within the 36 hours, the invitation will be deleted and the next person on the TBOTE Blog Seniority List will be given an invitation.  If the member does not accept the invitation within the 36 hours, the member will not lose his or her position on The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs Blog Seniority List and may one day receive another invitation to move to a new designated TBOTE blog.  

All TBOTEMC members will be able to create one post a day at our Word Press blog, The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs Marketing Cooperative.  Members may advertise their free products, priced products, sales, promotions, and articles on our Word Press blog at http://thebestofteacherentrepreneursmarketingcooperative.net/.  Each member of the collaborative blog will be responsible for his or her own posts.

The blog accepts forms of cash advertising, sponsorship, paid insertions, or other forms of compensation.
