3. Trust & Safety

  1. 3.1
    Trust & Safety Policies.

    You agree to abide by Leland’s Trust & Safety policies and other content quality standards or policies prescribed by Leland from time to time. You should check these policies periodically to ensure that you comply with any updates to them. You understand that your use of the Services is subject to Leland’s approval, which we may grant or deny at our sole discretion.

    We reserve the right to remove content, suspend payouts, and/or ban coach content for any reason at any time, without prior notice, including in cases where:

    • content does not comply with our policies or legal terms (including the Terms of Use);

    • content falls below our quality standards or has a negative impact on the customer experience;

    • a coach engages in behavior that might reflect unfavorably on Leland or bring Leland into public disrepute, contempt, scandal, or ridicule;

    • a coach engages the services of a marketer or other business partner who violates Leland’s policies;

    • a coach uses the Services in a way that constitutes unfair competition, such as promotion of their off-site business in a way that violates Leland’s policies; or,

    • as determined by Leland in its sole discretion.

  2. 3.2
    Anti-Piracy Efforts.

    We may, from time to time, partner with anti-piracy vendors to help protect your content from unauthorized use. To enable this protection, you hereby appoint Leland and our anti-piracy vendors as your agents for the purpose of enforcing copyrights for each of your content, through notice and takedown processes (under applicable copyright laws like the Digital Millennium Copyright Act) and for other efforts to enforce those rights. You grant Leland and our anti-piracy vendors primary authority to file notices on your behalf to enforce your copyright interests.

    You agree that Leland and our anti-piracy vendors will retain the above rights unless you revoke them by sending an email to with the subject line: “Revoke Anti-Piracy Protection Rights” from the email address associated with your account. Any revocation of rights will be effective 48 hours after we receive it.

4. Payments

  1. 4.1
    Revenue Share.

    Leland+ content is available to users via monthly and annual subscriptions, paid directly to Leland. For each user, we calculate the gross amount that Leland receives for that month (Gross Amount). This amount is a pro-rated amount for annual subscribers. From there, we subtract any Transaction Fees incurred from Stripe, our payment processor, to calculate the net amount from the subscription (Net Amount).

    For users that accumulated >10 seconds of viewing content or downloaded at least one template (Active Users), Leland will take 50% of the customer’s Net Amount, and contribute that amount to a pool that will be distributed to coaches based on that customer’s engagement with content.

    Engagement is measured differently for each content type. For videos and PDFs, engagement is measured by viewing time. For templates, each download is considered to be the equivalent of 30 seconds of viewing time. At the end of each month, we calculate payouts based on a percentage of each user’s engagement with the various content types on the platform.

  2. 4.2
    Receiving Payments.

    Coach content creators are expected to have a coaching account on Leland, but do not need to be listed publicly on the site. This enables us to pay you in a timely and secure manner via Stripe.

    In order to ensure proper calculation of payouts across various coach content contributors, payouts will be released two payout periods after the month ends, exactly one month after the engagement month ends (e.g. October 2023 payouts will be released in the December 1st payout period).

5. Trademarks

While you are a published coach and subject to the requirements below, you may use our trademarks where we authorize you to do so.

You must:

  • only use the images of our trademarks that we make available to you, as detailed in any guidelines we may publish;

  • only use our trademarks in connection with your Submitted Content available on Leland+ or your participation on Leland; and,

  • immediately comply if we request that you discontinue use.

You must not:

  • use our trademarks in a misleading or disparaging way;

  • use our trademarks in a way that implies that we endorse, sponsor, or approve of your Submitted Content or services;

  • use our trademarks in a way that violates applicable law or in connection with an obscene, indecent, or unlawful topic or material; or,

  • use trademarks of a third-party organization that has not been cleared, in writing, by the Leland team.

6. Miscellaneous Legal Terms

  1. 6.1
    Updating These Terms.

    From time to time, we may update these Terms to clarify our practices or to reflect new or different practices (such as when we add new features), and Leland reserves the right in its sole discretion to modify and/or make changes to these Terms at any time. If we make any material change, we will notify you using prominent means such as by email notice sent to the email address specified in your account or by posting a notice through our Services. Modifications will become effective on the day they are posted unless stated otherwise.

    Your continued use of our Services after changes become effective shall mean that you accept those changes. Any revised Terms shall supersede all previous Terms.
