Modeloe’s policy is to remove document templates from our service when they are reported as infringing in a copyright infringement notice received from the owner of the original content.

We reserve the right to terminate a designer’s account at any time, including when they post content in violation of the copyrights of others.
If we receive a valid copyright violation report, we will send a copy of that report to the designer who posted the reported template along with a notification that 1) the template was reported for copyright infringement and 2) we are removing the template from the Modeloe service. We will also attach a form that the designer can fill in and send back to us to submit a counter-notification. If your template has been reported for copyright infringement and removed from the Modeloe service, and if you believe we made a mistake or that you have permission from the owner of the reported content to use such content in your course, then you may send us a counter-notification.

In the event that the sale or delivery of a Template or any Submitted Content to any User in the European Union is subject to any value added tax ("VAT"), under applicable law, Modeloe will collect and remit the VAT to the competent tax authorities for sales of such Templates or Submitted Content to Users in the European Union. Modeloe may at its own discretion increase the Sale Price where Modeloe is of the view that VAT may be due and Modeloe will have a liability to account for such. You will indemnify and hold Modeloe harmless against any and all claims by any tax authority for any underpayment of VAT, and any penalties and/or interest thereon.

Modeloe may, in its sole discretion, round up or round down the Sale Price to the nearest whole functional base unit in which the Sale Currency is denominated (e.g. to the nearest dollar, euro or other supported currency); for example, Modeloe will round up an amount of $101.50 to $102.00, and $101.49 to $101.00.
Some currencies are denominated in large numbers. In those cases, Modeloe may determine the functional base unit in which those currencies are denominated to be 10, 100 or 1,000 of the currency; the corresponding examples for such currencies would be for Modeloe to round up an amount of 1,045 up to 1,050 and 1,044 down to 1,040, or 35,450 up to 35,500 and 35,449 down to 35,400, or 837,500 up to 838,000 and 837,499 down to 837,000.
