Welcome to Teacher's Notebook. By using the website and services offered by Teachers Notebook, LLC. (“Teacher's Notebook”), you agree to the following terms and conditions with Teacher's Notebook. This Agreement sets forth the legally binding terms and conditions for your use of the website at http://teachersnotebook.com (the “Site”) and all services provided by Teacher's Notebook on the Site. If you have any questions, please refer to our help section of the Site.
Teacher's Notebook is a Marketplace
Teacher's Notebook acts as a marketplace to allow users to offer, sell and buy original teaching resources and new/used teaching materials/supplies (“Products”). Teacher's Notebook has no control over the ability of sellers to sell Products or the ability of buyers to pay for Products. Teacher's Notebook cannot ensure that a buyer or seller will actually complete a transaction.
Teacher's Notebook does not transfer legal ownership of Products from the seller to the buyer. Teacher's Notebook cannot guarantee the true identity and age of a user. Teacher's Notebook encourages you to communicate directly with potential transaction partners through the tools available on the Site.
You and Teacher's Notebook are independent contractors, and no agency, partnership, joint venture, employee-employer or franchiser-franchisee relationship is intended or created by this Agreement. You agree that Teacher's Notebook is a marketplace and as such is not responsible or liable for any Content, including but not limited to, data, text, information, usernames, graphics, images, photographs, profiles, audio, video, items, and links posted by you, other users, or outside parties on the Site. You use the Site, services and tools at your own risk.
