You should review applicable terms and policies, including privacy and data gathering practices, of any third party, and should make whatever investigation You feel necessary or appropriate before proceeding with any transaction with any third party.
P. Pricing, Payments and Refunds
Pricing: We believe that Creators, being the content creators, must have full the liberty to decide the pricing of the Content offered by them; hence, Creators are exclusively responsible for establishing and setting the prices for the Content offered by them on the Platform (referred to as the "Creator Fee”) at their sole discretion and Hapyify is not responsible for the same.
Platform Service Charges: As mentioned in the beginning of this Agreement, Registration and account creation on Hapyify comes at zero cost to both Creators and Followers. But, when Creators create and publish content on the Platform, Hapyify charges 30% (thirty percent) of the Creator Fee set by the Creator for making available the Services with all its features on the Platform (referred to as the “Platform Service Charge”). The Platform Service Charge is inclusive of GST for Non-GST Registered Creators and exclusive of GST for GST Registered Creators. Hapyify as a Platform does not charge anything from the Follower to access the Platform, but to access the Content offered by the Creators, Followers may be required to pay the Creator Fee set by the Creator.
In purchasing products or services through the Platform, a User may be redirected to an external website operated by Stripe, Razorpay or Cashfree (as applicable). We cannot and do not (i) guarantee the adequacy of the privacy and security practices employed by or the content and media provided by Stripe, Cashfree or Razorpay or its respective websites or (ii) control collection or use of Your personal information by Stripe, Cashfree or Razorpay. You agree that You are solely responsible for all charges that occur through a Stripe, Cashfree or Razorpay (as applciable) and acknowledge and agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Hapyify, its licensors, their corporate affiliates, and their respective officers, directors, employees, and agents from any loss arising out of or related to the use of the Platform or any purchases made through the Platform. This obligation will survive Your use of the Platform and termination of the Agreement. For purposes of this Agreement, “Loss” means all losses, liabilities, damages, awards, settlements, claims, suits, proceedings, costs and expenses (including reasonable legal fees and disbursements and costs of investigation, litigation, settlement, judgment, interest, and penalties). Hapyify shall not be liable to You for any claims arising out of any act or omission on the part of Stripe, Cashfree or Razorpay (as the case may be) including, but not limited to, any lost, stolen, or incorrectly processed payments. Hapyify expressly disclaims any responsibility and liability for all services provided by Stripe, Cashfree and Razorpay.
Once You’ve created Your Stripe account, You will see that Stripe will be responsible for directing and distributing payments for products and services purchased through the Platform, including automatically sending receipts to Followers and directing payouts to Creators and any bank accounts identified by Creators. Stripe or Razorpay or Cashfree (as applicable) will collect the amounts paid by the Followers and distribute it between You (i.e., the Creator) and Hapyify (we get only the Platform Service Charge mentioned above). You will generate invoices to the Followers for the entire Creator Fee and You will receive invoices too on behalf of Hapyify for the Platform Service Charge only. Also, please note the below terms-
● In respect of Your transaction, You are solely responsible for all applicable Goods and Services Taxes (‘GST’), EU Value Added Taxes (‘VAT’), costs, filings, and any other activities that may arise as a result of sales of Your Content using the Platform. Neither is Hapyify responsible to nor does it collect, pay, remit or otherwise pay on Your behalf, the taxes owed by You (including GST or EU VAT) on Content You sell through the Platform.
For Creators based in India, the GST is applicable once they breach the threshold exemption (threshold exemption means Turnover of Rs. 20 Lacs or Rs. 10 Lacs in case of special category states) and need to, compulsorily, register themselves with the GST authorities and charge the prescribed GST from the users and pay the same to the GST authorities. You hereby agree to follow the rules, guidelines of the GST and absolve Hapyify of any liability arising out of the said GST.
In case you have failed to furnish the GST registration certificate to Hapyify after crossing the threshold exemption on Hapyify platform,
- For transactions done till 31st December 2021: Hapyify will submit 1% TCS for all the previous transactions above the threshhold limit as soon as you submit the GST registration certificate to Hapyify and you will thus be liable to deposit the remaining GST amount to the GST authorities.
Billing: You will generate invoices to the Followers for the entire Creator Fee and You will receive invoices on behalf of Hapyify for the Platform Service Charge only.
- For transactions done 1st Jan 2022 onwards: Hapyify will start collecting 18% GST and start invoicing the customers and deposit the same to the GST authorities.
Billing: Hapyify will generate GST invoices to the Followers for the entire Creator Fee and You will generate invoice to Hapyify for an amount which is equal to (Creator Fee - Platform Service Charge).
Once you submit the GST registration certificate to Hapyify, you can start generating the invoices to the customers as usual and Hapyify will generate an invoice to you of Platform Service charge only.
● Equlisation Levy @ 6% will be deducted on any payment made to the Foreign Creators/Creators not based in India against the Online Advertising Services provided by them to Hapyify.
● You set the Creator Fee of each Content published on the Platform at Your sole discretion and without any input from Hapyify.
● All invoices made to Your Followers through Stripe or Razorpay or Cashfree (as applicable) shall indicate that You are the supplier of the Content.
● Followers’ invoices shall identify the name and nature of the Content that was purchased.
● As stated, Stripe and Razorpay and Cashfree are third-party service providers, hence, neither is Hapyify a party to the authorization process nor is Hapyify responsible for authorizing credit card charges through Stripe and/or Razorpay and/or Cashfree.
● You are responsible for Your Content's terms and conditions and are not bound by our refund policy, if any.
● Hapyify has no responsibility to accept or reject Content enrolments should there be any issues with payments. You agree that once payments are processed through Stripe or Razorpay or Cashfree, such processing serves as an authorization to Hapyify to deliver the Content materials to Followers through the Services.
(b). Payments with respect to Followers: To sign-up for any Content, You will need to pay the Creator Fee determined by the respective Creator, which shall be processed by Stripe or Razorpay or Cashfree (as applicable), as explained above. Your payments may be subject to applicable taxes, so we suggest that You read terms and policies of Stripe and/or Razorpay and/or Cashfree(as applicable) to understand the same better. Further, please note that Hapyify is only an intermediary between You and the Creator; in other words, we are only facilitating the transaction between You and the Creator through the Services offered on the Platform. Hence, we are not responsible for the Content of the Creator, the Creator Fees, payment processing or refunds. Your enrolment for any Content is subject to the terms and conditions determined by the respective Creator, at his/her/its sole discretion without suggestions from Hapyify. Should You face any issues in this regard, please reach out to the respective Creator to resolve the same.
Q. Deletion of Account
You may delete Your account at any time. If Your account is deleted (regardless of the reason), Your Content may no longer be available and the same may be irrecoverable. Hapyify is not responsible for the loss of such Content upon deletion and Hapyify shall not be liable to any party in any way for the inability to access Content arising from any deletion.
