Terms of Service

February 7, 2023

 

Our partners & members are the most important stakeholders of our business, and we appreciate you looking to JeevanSarthi Ecosystem Orchestrators & Mentors LLP (hereinafter called Jeevansarthi) to make platforms or fulfil needs.

This Terms of Services Agreement (this ‚ÄúAgreement‚ÄĚ) contains the terms under which¬†JeevanSarthi¬†provides support to you and describes how to avail of it.¬†

You must read, agree, and accept all terms and conditions contained in this Agreement and expressly referenced in this Agreement & Privacy Policy.‚ÄĚ

Suppose you are using the Platform on behalf of an entity or other organization. In that case, you agree to these Terms on behalf of that entity or organization and represent that you have such authority. ‚ÄúYou‚ÄĚ and ‚Äúyour‚ÄĚ will refer to that entity or organization.

When you access the Platform, you agree to be bound by these Terms and applicable laws, rules, and regulations.¬† You may be asked to click ‚ÄúI accept‚ÄĚ at the appropriate place.¬† At such time, if you do not click ‚ÄúI accept‚ÄĚ, you may not be able to complete your transaction or access our Platform.¬†¬†

¬†JeevanSarthi¬†is not an educational institution, marketplace, or content provider.¬† Our users, entrepreneurs, customers, and partners are not our employees.¬† We are not responsible for any interactions between you and your customers, students, subscribers, or users (collectively, ‚ÄúEnd-Users‚ÄĚ), other than providing the platform for you to make your content available.¬† We are in no way liable for any disputes, claims, losses, injuries, or damage arising out of your relationship with your End-User, including any End-Users reliance upon any information or content you provide.

  1. Fees and Payments

1.1. Fees for our Platform. You agree to pay  JeevanSarthi as per the terms. Where applicable, you will be billed using the billing method you select through your account management page. If you have elected to pay the fees by credit card, you represent and warrant that the credit card information you provide is correct. You will promptly notify  JeevanSarthi of any changes to such information. Fees paid by you are non-refundable, except as provided in these Terms or when required by law.

1.2. Subscriptions.¬† You will be billed in advance on a recurring, periodic basis (each period is called a ‚Äúbilling cycle‚ÄĚ). Billing cycles are typically monthly or annual, depending on your subscription plan when purchasing a Subscription. Payment will be charged to your chosen payment method at confirmation of purchase and the start of every new billing cycle.¬† Your Subscription will automatically renew at the end of each billing cycle unless you cancel your account through your online account management page or by contacting us prior to the end of the billing cycle. While we will never want to lose a customer, you may cancel auto-renewal on your Subscription at any time. Your Subscription will continue until the end of that billing cycle before terminating. You may cancel auto-renewal on your Subscription immediately after the Subscription starts if you do not want it to renew.

Suppose you initially sign up for a plan that includes a free or discounted trial period, and you do not cancel that account before the stated trial period expires. In that case, you will be billed for the full price of the plan starting on the day the trial period ends. You will not be charged if you cancel before processing your first invoice following the trial period.

Through our third-party providers (Stripe and PayPal), we will keep your detailed payment information, such as non-sensitive credit card partial numbers and expiration date, on file. We do not access this information except through provided programmatic methods by the provider(s). You are responsible for keeping your payment details up-to-date by changing the details in your account settings.  When your details change or are due to expire, we may obtain or receive from your payment provider updated payment details, including your card number, expiration date, and CVV (or equivalent).  This enables us to provide you access to the Platform.  You authorize us to continue to charge your credit card using the updated information.  If payment is not successfully authorized due to expiration, insufficient funds, or otherwise, we may suspend or terminate your subscription until applicable changes have occurred.  You also agree that we may charge you via your payment method on file if you elect to restart your subscription.

Any change (including any upgrade, downgrade or other modification) to any plan by you in a trial period will end the trial immediately.  You will be billed for your first term period (i.e. the first annual or monthly period) immediately upon upgrading. For any upgrade or downgrade in plan level after any trial period, your credit, debit, or other payment cards will automatically be charged the new rate on your next billing cycle. You will be billed immediately for the prorated difference for the current billing cycle for any upgrade to any higher-priced plan during that billing cycle. If a plan downgrade causes a credit to your account, this credit will be used toward your next billing cycle(s). This credit will not be refunded.

1.3. Taxes.¬† Our prices listed do not include any taxes, levies, duties or similar governmental assessments of any nature, such as value-added, sales, use, or withholding taxes, assessable by any jurisdiction (collectively, ‚ÄúTaxes‚ÄĚ) unless otherwise indicated. You are responsible for paying Taxes associated with your purchase and keeping your billing information up to date.¬†

Where we have a legal obligation to pay; we will pay & recover as per the law.

1.4. Price Changes. JeevanSarthi may change the fees charged to you for the Services at any time, provided that, for platform billed on a subscription basis, the change will become effective only at the end of the then-current billing cycle of your Subscription. JeevanSarthi will provide you with advance notice of any change in fees, and you will have the opportunity to cancel your Subscription as set forth in Section 1.2.

  1. Suspension and Termination of Services

10.1. By You.  You can terminate your Subscription and delete your account at any time through your account management page. Such termination and deletion will result in the deactivation or disablement of your account and access to it and the deletion of content you collected through the Platform. Terminations are confirmed immediately, and you will not be charged again for that Subscription unless you purchase a new one. Suppose you terminate a Subscription in the middle of a billing cycle. In that case, you will not receive a refund unless you are terminating these Terms for any of the following reasons: (a) we have materially breached these Terms and failed to cure that breach within 30 days after you have so notified us in writing; (b) a refund is required by law; or (c) we, in our sole discretion, determine a refund is appropriate. For clarity, we will not grant a refund where you have used our Platform unless the termination is due to our material, uncured breach or a refund is required by law.

10.2. By JeevanSarthi. JeevanSarthi may terminate your Subscription for any reason at the end of a billing cycle by providing at least 30 days prior written notice to you, and you will not be charged for the next billing cycle.  JeevanSarthi may terminate your Subscription for any reason by providing at least 90 days written notice and will provide a pro-rata refund for any period you did not use in that billing cycle.  JeevanSarthi may immediately suspend performance or terminate your Subscription for any of the following reasons: (a) you have materially breached these Terms, in our sole discretion, and failed to cure that breach within 30 days after we have notified you in writing of the such breach; or (b) you cease your business operations or become subject to insolvency proceedings, and the proceedings are not dismissed within 90 days. Additionally,   JeevanSarthi may immediately limit, suspend, or terminate the Platform to you: (i) if, in our sole discretion, you fail to comply with these Terms; (ii) if in our sole discretion, you use the Platform in a way that causes legal liability to us or disrupts others’ use of the Platform; or (iii) we are investigating suspected misconduct by you. Also, if we limit, suspend, or terminate the Platform you receive, depending upon the reason, we will endeavour to give you advance notice and an opportunity to obtain a copy of your Content from that Service. However, there may be time-sensitive situations where JeevanSarthi may decide that we need to take immediate action without notice. JeevanSarthi will use commercially reasonable efforts to narrow the scope and duration of any limitation or suspension under this Section as is needed to resolve the issue that prompted such action. JeevanSarthi has no obligation to retain your Content upon termination of the applicable Service.

10.3. Further Measures.  Suppose JeevanSarthi stops providing the Platform to you because you repeatedly breach these Terms. In that case,  JeevanSarthi may take measures to prevent your further use of the Platform, including blocking your IP address.

Changes to Terms.  You acknowledge and agree that JeevanSarthi may change these Terms at any time for various reasons, such as to reflect changes in applicable law or updates to Platform and to account for new Platforms or functionality.

In that case, we may notify you by email and/or by posting it to our website or upon logging into your account. Changes will be effective no sooner than the day they are publicly posted and apply to all access to and use of the Platform thereafter. However, any changes to the dispute resolution provisions will not apply to any disputes for which the parties have actual notice before the date the change is posted.  If you do not want to agree to any changes made to the Terms, you should stop using the Platform because by continuing to use the Platform, you indicate your agreement to be bound by the updated terms.

11.2. Changes to the Platform and Services.  We are continually changing and improving our Platform.  JeevanSarthi may add, alter, or remove functionality from a Service it provides to you at any time without prior notice.  JeevanSarthi may also limit, suspend, or discontinue a Service provided to you at our discretion. If we discontinue a Service, we will give you reasonable advance notice to provide you with an opportunity to obtain a copy of your Content from that Service.  JeevanSarthi may remove content from the Platform it provides you at any time at our sole discretion. However, we will endeavour to notify you before we do that if it materially impacts you and if practicable under the circumstances.

11.3. Downgrades.  Downgrading your account plan may cause the loss of your account's content, features, functionality, or capacity.
