How it works
Sporthy is a social media platform that lets you create a Member profile, which in turn allows you to:
Upload Member Content to be viewed by other Members or Member Interaction to be used by other Members; and/or;
pay to view another Member’s Member Content or use another Member’s Member Interaction.
To become a Member you must register and create a Member Account on Sporthy. You must provide a valid email address, a Membername, and a password or a valid Twitter account. It is a condition of your use of the Website that all the information you provide on the Website is correct, current, and complete.
If you wish to view Member Content you will need to provide details of a payment card to a Payment Provider. Your payment card information is stored by the Payment Provider.
If you elect to input two or more payment card details onto your Member Account if payment of the Revenue from the first card is rejected because the payment card is no longer valid then the other payment card(s) will be used to collect full payment of the Revenue.
If you are an Instructor and wish to receive payment of Commissions, you will need to include onto your Member Account Payout Options and upload a valid form of ID. You may also need to submit additional legal information, such as a W-9 if you are resident in the United States of America. The exact information required will depend on your country of residence. Amounts due to you as a Instructor from Members will be paid to you by one of our Payment Providers in accordance with your Payout Options. With the exception of Instructors wishing to receive payment by direct bank transfer from Sporthy, Sporthy does not store any data disclosed by you when you register your Payout Options with the Payment Provider.
