  1. Fees and Payments

14.1. Fees for our Product. You agree to pay Webinar Engine any fees for each Service or Product that you use or purchase in accordance with the pricing and payment terms presented to you for that Product or Service. 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 and you will promptly notify Webinar Engine of any changes to such information. Fees paid by you are non-refundable, except as provided in these Terms or when required by law. Included in your fee may be technical support in respect of the Service and it is only provided to Webinar Engine customers. Webinar Engine’s support agents are not trained in custom-coding and technical support for any custom-coding is the responsibility of the customer and Webinar Engine accepts no responsibility to provide such support.

14.2. Subscriptions.  Our Product is billed on a subscription basis (“Subscriptions”). This means that you will be billed in advance on a recurring, periodic basis (each period is called a “billing cycle”). Billing cycles are typically monthly or annual, depending on what subscription plan you select when purchasing a Subscription. Payment will be charged to your chosen payment method at confirmation of purchase and at 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 at support@webinar.ng 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, in which case 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.

If 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, you will be billed for the full price of the plan starting on the day the trial period ends. If you cancel prior to the processing of your first invoice following the trial period, you will not be charged.

We, through our third-party providers (Paystack or Rave) 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 Service.  You authorize us to continue to charge your credit card using the updated information.  If a 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 card 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.

14.3. 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 in Nigeria or by any jurisdiction (collectively, “Taxes”) unless otherwise indicated. You are responsible for paying Taxes associated with your purchase and keeping your billing information up to date.

(a)  Value Added Tax. If we have a legal obligation to pay or collect sales tax for which you are responsible, we will calculate the sales tax based upon the billing information we have about you and charge you that amount (which, if your billing information is incomplete or inaccurate, may be the highest prevailing rate then in effect), unless you provide us with a valid tax exemption certificate acceptable to the appropriate taxing authority.

If you provide us with a tax exemption certificate, you represent and warrant that it accurately reflects your tax status and that you will keep such document current and accurate.

  • If we subsequently determine in our sole discretion that your tax exemption document is valid, we will refund the sales tax collected.

If you are required by law to withhold any Taxes from your payments to Webinar Engine, you must provide Webinar Engine with an official tax receipt or other appropriate documentation to support such payments.

14.4. Price Changes.  Webinar Engine may change the fees charged to you for the Services at any time, provided that, for Products billed on a subscription basis, the change will become effective only at the end of the then-current billing cycle of your Subscription. Webinar Engine will provide you with advance notice of any change in fees and you will have the opportunity to cancel your Subscription.

Webinar Engine 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 thirty (30) days after we have notified you in writing of such breach; or (b) you cease your business operations or become subject to insolvency proceedings and the proceedings are not dismissed within ninety (90) days. Additionally, Webinar Engine may immediately limit, suspend, or terminate the Product to you: (i) if, in our sole discretion, you fail to comply with these Terms; (ii) if, in our sole discretion, you use the Product in a way that causes legal liability to us or disrupts others’ use of the Product; or (iii) we are investigating suspected misconduct by you. Also, if we limit, suspend, or terminate the Product 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 Webinar Engine may decide that we need to take immediate action without notice. Webinar Engine 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. Webinar Engine has no obligation to retain your Content upon termination of the applicable Service.

18.3. Further Measures.  If Webinar Engine stops providing the Product to you because you repeatedly or egregiously breach these Terms, Webinar Engine may take measures to prevent your further use of the Product, including blocking your IP address.

  1. Changes and Updates

19.1. Changes to Terms.  You acknowledge and agree that Webinar Engine may change these Terms at any time for a variety of reasons, such as to reflect changes in applicable law or updates to the Services, and to account for new Products or functionality. The most current version will always be posted on our website. If an amendment is material, as determined in Webinar Engine’s sole discretion, we may notify you by email and/or posting it to our website or upon your login to 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 Service 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 Service, because by continuing to use the Services you indicate your agreement to be bound by the updated terms.

19.2. Changes to the Product and Services.  We are continually changing and improving our Service. Webinar Engine may add, alter, or remove functionality from a Product it provides to you at any time without prior notice. Webinar Engine 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. Webinar Engine may remove content from the Product it provides you at any time in our sole discretion, although we will endeavour to notify you before we do that if it materially impacts you and if practicable under the circumstances.

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

  1. Resolving Disputes; Arbitration Agreement; Governing Law.

22.1. Resolving Disputes.  In the event of any controversy, claim, action, or dispute, we want to first try to address it without needing a formal legal case. Before filing a claim against Webinar Engine, you agree to try to resolve the dispute informally by contacting legal@webinar.ng. We’ll try to resolve the dispute informally by contacting you via email. If a dispute is not resolved within thirty (30) days of submission, you or Webinar Engine may bring a formal proceeding.

22.2. We Both Agree to Arbitrate. You and Webinar Engine agree to resolve any claims relating to these Terms or the Service through final and binding arbitration by a single arbitrator.

In the event of any dispute or difference between You and Webinar Engine in connection with or in relation to this Agreement or its performance, construction or interpretation, You shall provide a written notice, giving particulars of the dispute (the Notice of Dispute) to Webinar Engine. You and Webinar Engine each agree to appoint a representative to meet virtually as soon as possible, in an effort to resolve the dispute amicably, in good faith and with absolute fair play.

If a dispute is not resolved by formal negotiation as stated above within fourteen (14) Business Days of the notice of dispute, the dispute shall be referred to mediation. The mediation shall be conducted by a CEDR UK accredited mediator or any other equivalent accredited mediator to be appointed by the Parties. The Lagos Multi Door Court House Model Procedure Rules 2007 shall apply. In the event that the You and Webinar Engine are unable to agree on the appointment of a mediator within one (1) month, the Parties shall proceed to litigation as stated in clause 22.1.

If the dispute is still not resolved after fourteen (14) Business Days of its being referred to mediation as specified above, You or Webinar Engine each irrevocably agrees that the dispute shall be finally resolved by a Nigerian court of competent jurisdiction which shall have exclusive jurisdiction to settle any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with this Agreement, its subject matter or formation.

Opt-out of Agreement to Arbitrate.  You can decline this agreement to arbitrate within 30 days of first registering your account by contacting us at legal@webinar.ng.
