(8) Fees & Payment.
Fees. Access to the Services may require Customer to pay fees. Before Customer pays any fees, Customer will have an opportunity to review and accept the fees that Customer will be charged. All fees are in UAE Dirhams and are, except as described in this Section 8, non-refundable. If Wafeq changes the fees for the Services, including by adding additional fees or charges, Wafeq will provide Customer advance notice of those changes. If Customer does not accept the changes, Wafeq may discontinue providing the Services to Customer. Wafeq will charge the payment method Customer specifies at the time of purchase. Customer authorizes Wafeq to charge all sums for the Services Customer selects, to that payment method. If Customer pays any fees with a credit card, Wafeq may seek pre-authorization of Customer’s credit card account prior to Customer’s purchase to verify that the credit card is valid and has the necessary funds or credit available to cover Customer’s purchase.
Automatic Credit Card Payments. The Services may include functionality for activating, updating, or canceling recurring payments for periodic charges. If Customer activates or updates recurring payments through the Service, Customer authorizes Wafeq to periodically charge, on a going-forward basis and until cancellation of either the recurring payments or Customer’s account, all accrued sums on or before the payment due date for the accrued sums. If Customer uses the Service to updates or cancels any existing authorized one-time or recurring payment, it may take up to 10 business days for the update or cancellation to take effect.
Late Payment. Customer may not withhold or “setoff” any amounts due hereunder. Wafeq reserves the right to suspend the Services until all past due amounts are paid in full.
Certain Taxes. Fees quoted do not include and Customer shall pay, indemnify and hold Wafeq harmless from all sales, use, gross receipts, value-added, personal property or other taxes, and all applicable duties, tariffs, assessments, export and import fees or similar charges (including interest and penalties imposed thereon) on the transaction contemplated herein, other than taxes based on the net income or profits of Wafeq.
Refunds. In the event of termination of the Services for any reason except for Customer’s breach, Wafeq may provide Customer with a refund of any pre-paid, but unused fees related to such Services, subject to the following: (i) no refund shall be paid for the current month’s services, regardless of the day on which Customer cancels the Services; (ii) Wafeq will retain and not be obligated to refund any prepaid fees up to and including the amount of fees Customer would have been required under this EULA to pay for Customer’s use of the Services for the two month period following the effective date of the termination of the Services. Customer is not entitled to any refund for Wafeq’s termination of the Services based upon Customer’s breach. If Customer purchased access to the Services at a discounted price, any refund will lose the benefit of that discount.
(9) Confidential & Proprietary Information.
Definitions. For purposes of this section, a Party receiving Confidential & Proprietary Information (as defined below) shall be the “Recipient” and the Party disclosing such information shall be the “Discloser” and “Confidential & Proprietary Information” means all information disclosed by Discloser to Recipient during the Term and marked as “confidential” or “proprietary.” Customer hereby acknowledges that the Service will be considered Confidential and Proprietary Information belonging exclusively to Wafeq (or its designated third party supplier), and Wafeq hereby acknowledges that Customer Data will be considered Confidential and Proprietary Information belonging exclusively to Customer, in each case regardless of whether or not marked as “confidential” or “proprietary.” Discloser’s Confidential & Proprietary Information does not include: (i) information already known or independently developed by Recipient without use of or reference to any Discloser’s Confidential & Proprietary Information; (ii) information in the public domain through no wrongful act of Recipient, or (iii) information received by Recipient from a third party who was free to disclose it without confidentiality obligations.
Covenant. Recipient hereby agrees that during the Term and at all times thereafter it shall not (i) disclose such Confidential & Proprietary Information of the Discloser to any person or entity, except to its own personnel, affiliates or contractors having a “need to know”, as permitted by this EULA (including Section 5(b)), or to such other recipients as the Discloser may approve in writing, including Representatives; (ii) use Confidential & Proprietary Information of the Discloser except to exercise its license rights or perform its obligations under this EULA; or (iii) alter or remove from any Confidential & Proprietary Information of the Discloser any proprietary legend. Recipient shall use at least the same degree of care in safeguarding the Confidential & Proprietary Information of the Discloser as it uses in safeguarding its own confidential information of a similar nature, but in no event shall less than reasonable care. Upon the earlier of Discloser’s written request or termination or expiration of this EULA, and regardless of whether a dispute may exist, Recipient shall return or destroy (as instructed by Discloser) all Confidential & Proprietary Information of Discloser in its possession or control and cease all further use thereof. Wafeq may retain a copy of such Confidential & Proprietary Information for the sole purpose of and to the extent necessary for it to comply with applicable legal, regulatory, and/or reasonable internal back-up or archival policies and requirements. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Recipient may disclose Discloser’s Confidential & Proprietary Information to the extent that such disclosure is necessary for the Recipient to enforce its rights under this EULA or is required by law or by the order of a court or similar judicial or administrative body, provided that prior to disclosing any Confidential & Proprietary Information due to a legal requirement, the Recipient promptly notifies the Discloser in writing of such required disclosure and cooperates with the Discloser to seek an appropriate protective order.
Injunctive Relief. Recipient acknowledges that violation of the provisions of this section would cause irreparable harm to Discloser not adequately compensable by monetary damages. In addition to other relief, it is agreed that injunctive relief shall be available without necessity of posting bond to prevent any actual or threatened violation of such provisions.
(10) No Warranties.
Content from other users, suppliers, advertisers, and other third parties may be made available to Customer through the Services. Because Wafeq does not control such content, Customer agrees that Wafeq is not responsible for any such content. Wafeq does not make any guarantees about the accuracy, currency, suitability, or quality of the information in such content, and Wafeq assumes no responsibility for unintended, objectionable, inaccurate, misleading, or unlawful content made available by other users, advertisers, and other third parties or violation of any third party rights related to such content. The Services may contain links to websites not operated by Wafeq. Wafeq is not responsible for the content, products, materials, or practices (including privacy practices) of such websites. Customer understands that by using the Site and/or Services Customer may be exposed to third-party websites that Customer finds offensive, indecent or otherwise objectionable. Wafeq makes no warranty, representation, endorsement, or guarantee regarding, and accepts no responsibility for, the quality, content, nature or reliability of third party websites, products or services accessible by hyperlink or otherwise from the Site or Services. Wafeq provides these links for Customer’s convenience only and does not control such websites. Wafeq’s inclusion of links to such websites does not imply any endorsement of the materials on such third party websites or any association with their operators. The Services may contain links to websites that are operated by Wafeq but which operate under different terms. It is Customer’s responsibility to review the privacy policies and terms and conditions of any other website Customer visits. CUSTOMER AGREES THAT IN NO EVENT WILL WAFEQ BE LIABLE TO CUSTOMER IN CONNECTION WITH ANY WEBSITES, CONTENT, MATERIALS, OR PRACTICES OF ANY THIRD PARTY.
Warranty Disclaimer. THE SERVICES AND ALL MATERIAL OR CONTENT AVAILABLE THROUGH THE SERVICE ARE PROVIDED “AS IS”, “AS AVAILABLE”, WITH ALL FAULTS AND WITHOUT WARRANTIES, REPRESENTATIONS OR CONDITIONS OF ANY KIND. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, WAFEQ HEREBY DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS, IMPLIED, STATUTORY, OR OTHERWISE, REPRESENTATIONS OR CONDITIONS, WHETHER WRITTEN OR ORAL, INCLUDING ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, TITLE, NONINFRINGEMENT, SECURITY, RELIABILITY, COMPLETENESS, QUIET ENJOYMENT, ACCURACY, QUALITY, INTEGRATION OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND ANY WARRANTY ARISING OUT OF COURSE OF DEALING, USAGE, OR TRADE. WAFEQ DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE SERVICE WILL OPERATE WITHOUT INTERRUPTION OR BE ERROR FREE. NO ADVICE OR INFORMATION, WHETHER ORAL OR WRITTEN, OBTAINED BY CUSTOMER FROM THE SERVICES OR ANY MATERIALS OR CONTENT AVAILABLE THROUGH THE SERVICES WILL CREATE ANY WARRANTY REGARDING ANY OF THE WAFEQ ENTITIES OR THE SERVICES THAT IS NOT EXPRESSLY STATED IN THIS EULA. CUSTOMER ASSUMES ALL RISK FOR ANY DAMAGE THAT MAY RESULT FROM CUSTOMER’S USE OF OR ACCESS TO THE SERVICES, CUSTOMER’S DEALING WITH ANY OTHER USER, AND ANY MATERIALS OR CONTENT AVAILABLE THROUGH THE SERVICES. CUSTOMER UNDERSTANDS AND AGREES THAT CUSTOMER USES THE SERVICES, AND USES, ACCESSES, DOWNLOADS, OR OTHERWISE OBTAINS MATERIALS OR CONTENT THROUGH THE SERVICES AND ANY ASSOCIATED SITES OR SERVICES, AT CUSTOMER’S OWN DISCRETION AND RISK, AND THAT CUSTOMER IS SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE TO CUSTOMER’S PROPERTY (INCLUDING CUSTOMER’S COMPUTER SYSTEM OR MOBILE DEVICE USED IN CONNECTION WITH THE SERVICES), OR THE LOSS OF DATA THAT RESULTS FROM THE USE OF THE SERVICES OR THE DOWNLOAD OR USE OF MATERIAL OR CONTENT.
SOME JURISDICTIONS MAY PROHIBIT A DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES AND CUSTOMER MAY HAVE OTHER RIGHTS THAT VARY FROM JURISDICTION TO JURISDICTION
(11) Limitation of Liabilities.
The Parties acknowledge that each provision of this EULA that provides for a limitation of liability, disclaimer of warranties, or exclusion of damages is intended to and does reflect a fair allocation of risk between the parties, and this allocation of risk forms an essential element of the basis of the bargain between the parties and shall survive and continue in full force and effect despite any failure of consideration or of an exclusive remedy. Each of these provisions is severable and independent of all other provisions of this EULA. The limitations in this Section 11 will apply even if any limited remedy fails of its essential purpose.
Amount. IN NO EVENT WILL WAFEQ BE LIABLE FOR DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY CONNECTED TO THIS EULA EXCEEDING FEES PAID IN RESPECT OF THE SERVICES AT ISSUE IN THE LAST THREE (3) MONTHS. THE EXISTENCE OF ONE OR MORE CLAIMS UNDER THIS EULA WILL NOT INCREASE THE MAXIMUM LIABILITY AMOUNT. IN NO EVENT SHALL WAFEQ’S SUPPLIERS HAVE ANY LIABILITY ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY CONNECTED TO THIS EULA.
Type. IN NO EVENT SHALL WAFEQ BE LIABLE TO CUSTOMER FOR ANY (I) SPECIAL, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, (II) LOST SAVINGS, PROFITS, DATA, USE, OR GOODWILL, (III) BUSINESS INTERRUPTION EVEN IF NOTIFIED IN ADVANCE OF SUCH POSSIBILITY, OR (IV) PERSONAL OR PROPERTY DAMAGE ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY CONNECTED TO THIS EULA, REGARDLESS OF CAUSE OF ACTION OR THE THEORY OF LIABILITY, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE, GROSS NEGLIGENCE, FUNDAMENTAL BREACH, BREACH OF A FUNDAMENTAL TERM) OR OTHERWISE. IN NO EVENT SHALL WAFEQ BE LIABLE FOR PROCUREMENT OR COSTS OF SUBSTITUTE PRODUCTS OR SERVICES. THE FOREGOING LIMITATIONS WILL APPLY NOTWITHSTANDING ANY FAILURE OF ESSENTIAL PURPOSE OF ANY LIMITED REMEDY HEREIN.
UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WILL WAFEQ BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE, LOSS, OR INJURY RESULTING FROM HACKING, TAMPERING, OR OTHER UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS OR USE OF THE SERVICES OR YOUR WAFEQ ACCOUNT, OR THE INFORMATION CONTAINED THEREIN.
SOME OF THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS AND DISCLAIMERS MAY NOT APPLY TO CUSTOMER. TO THE EXTENT THAT WAFEQ MAY NOT, AS A MATTER OF APPLICABLE LAW, DISCLAIM ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OR LIMIT LIABILITIES, THE SCOPE AND DURATION OF SUCH WARRANTY AND THE EXTENT OF WAFEQ’S LIABILITY WILL BE THE MINIMUM PERMITTED UNDER SUCH APPLICABLE LAW.
Notices sent to either Party shall be effective when delivered in person or by email, one (1) day after being sent by overnight courier, or two (2) days after being sent by first class mail postage prepaid to the official contact designated below and immediately after being received by the other party’s server. Notices must be in writing and addressed as follows:
For Wafeq, addressed to Customer Care at firstname.lastname@example.org; and
For Customer, to the addresses or email address provided by Customer on Sign-up (as such address or email address may be updated by Customer from time to time in accordance with this EULA).
Wafeq may change its contact information by giving notice of such change to the Customer. Customer may change its contact information by using the currently available interfaces on Wafeq’s website. For contractual purposes, Customer (i) consents to receive communications from Wafeq in an electronic form; and (ii) agree that all terms and conditions, agreements, notices, documents, disclosures, and other communications (“Communications”) that Wafeq provides to Customer electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such Communications would satisfy if it were in writing. Customer’s consent to receive Communications and do business electronically, and Wafeq’s agreement to do so, applies to all of Customer’s interactions and transactions with Wafeq. The foregoing does not affect Customer’s non-waivable rights. If Customer withdraws such consent, from that time forward, Customer must stop using the Services. The withdrawal of Customer’s consent will not affect the legal validity and enforceability of any obligations or any electronic Communications provided or business transacted between Wafeq prior to the time Customer withdraws its consent.
You Consent to Receive SMS Text Messages from Us. By providing Wafeq with Customer’s mobile telephone number, Customer consents to receiving text messages at that number as requested for account verification, invitations, and other purposes related to the Service. While Wafeq does not charge a fee for text messages, Customer’s carrier may charge standard messaging, data, and other fees. Customer is responsible for these charges. Wafeq may send and receive text messages through cellular telephone operators or other networks, and the level of reliability may vary. Wafeq is not responsible for the timeliness or final delivery of the message, as this is out of our control and is the responsibility of the cellular telephone operator or other networks.
On Notice. Either Party can terminate this EULA for their convenience by providing the other party with notice of termination prior to the last day of the then current monthly renewal.
Generally. Either Party may, in addition to other relief, terminate this EULA if the other Party breaches any material provision thereof and fails within fifteen (15) days after receipt of notice of default to correct such material breach or to commence corrective action reasonably acceptable to the aggrieved Party and proceed with due diligence to completion. Either Party shall be in default hereof if it becomes insolvent, makes an assignment for the benefit of its creditors, a receiver is appointed or a petition in Bankruptcy is filed with respect to the Party and is not dismissed within thirty (30) days, or, in the case of Customer, for the failure to pay all applicable fees.
Survival. Upon termination or expiration of this EULA for any reason: (i) all rights and obligations of both Parties (except for Customer’s payment of all sums then owing), including all licenses granted hereunder, shall immediately terminate except as provided below; (ii) within thirty (30) days after the effective date of termination, each Party shall comply with the obligations to return or destroy all Confidential Information of the other Party, as set forth in Section 9 (Confidential & Proprietary Information). The following Sections will survive expiration or termination of this EULA for any reason: the introductory paragraph, Sections (1), (3)(d), (4), (5(d)), (6), (10), (11), (13), and (14).
(14) General Provisions.
Assignment. Customer may not assign this EULA or any of its rights or obligations hereunder to any third party without Wafeq’s prior written consent. Any assignment in violation of this section shall be void. Wafeq may assign this EULA without restriction and without any notice to Customer. The terms of this EULA shall be binding upon permitted successors and assigns.
Arbitration. Any dispute, difference, controversy or claim arising out of or in connection with this contract, including (but not limited to) any question regarding its existence, validity, interpretation, performance, discharge and applicable remedies, shall be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Courts of the Dubai International Financial Centre (“the DIFC Courts”).
Arbitration is less formal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, may allow for more limited discovery than in court, and can be subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. This EULA to arbitrate disputes includes all claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of this EULA, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory, and regardless of whether a claim arises during or after the termination of this EULA. CUSTOMER UNDERSTANDS AND AGREES THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THIS EULA, CUSTOMER AND WAFEQ ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION.
Customer and Wafeq must abide by the following rules: (a) for any claim that could otherwise be brought in small claims court, the arbitration shall be conducted solely based on written submissions and, if the arbitrator deems it appropriate, a telephonic hearing; (b) if the claim exceeds what can be recovered in a small claims court, the arbitration shall be conducted solely based on written submissions or a telephonic hearing, unless the arbitrator deems a face-to-face hearing is appropriate, in which case one should be held at a location agreed to by Customer and Wafeq, and if the parties cannot agree on a location for the hearing, the arbitrator will determine a location for the proceedings which is reasonably convenient to both parties with due consideration of their ability to travel and other pertinent circumstances; © the arbitrator’s ruling is binding and not merely advisory; (d) ANY CLAIMS BROUGHT BY CUSTOMER OR WAFEQ MUST BE BROUGHT IN THE PARTIES’ INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING; (e) THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S CLAIMS, AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A REPRESENTATIVE OR CLASS PROCEEDING, (f) in the event that Customer is able to demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to costs of litigation, Wafeq will pay as much of Customer’s filing and hearing fees in connection with the arbitration as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive as compared to the cost of litigation, (g) Wafeq also reserves the right in its sole and exclusive discretion to assume responsibility for all of the costs of the arbitration; (h) the arbitrator shall honor claims of privilege and privacy recognized at law; (i) a decision by the arbitrator (including any finding of fact and/or conclusion of law) against either Customer or Wafeq shall be confidential unless otherwise required to be disclosed by law or by any administrative body and may not be collaterally used against either of them in existing or subsequent litigation or arbitration involving any other person/Wafeq customer; and (j) each side pays its own attorneys’ fees and expenses unless there is a statutory provision that requires the prevailing party to be paid its fees’ and litigation expenses.
Right to List As A Customer. Customer agrees that Wafeq may utilize Customer’s entity name in listings of current customers. Use of Customer’s name in any other marketing materials or press announcements will be submitted to Customer in advance for approval, and such approval will not be unreasonably withheld.
Compliance with Export Regulations. Customer has or shall obtain in a timely manner all necessary or appropriate licenses, permits or other governmental authorizations or approvals; shall indemnify and hold Wafeq harmless from, and bear all expense of, complying with all foreign or domestic laws, regulations or requirements pertaining to the importation, exportation, or use of the technology to be developed or provided herein. Customer shall not directly or indirectly export or re-export (including by transmission) any regulated technology to any country to which such activity is restricted by regulation or statute, without the prior written consent, if required, of the administrator of export laws.
European Union Residents. If Customer resides in the European Union (EU) or if any transfer of information between Customer and the Service is governed by the European Union Data Protection Directive or national laws implementing that Directive, then Customer consents to the transfer of such information outside of the European Union to its country and to such other countries as may be contemplated by the features and activities provided by the Service.
Construction. Except as otherwise provided herein, the Parties rights and remedies under this EULA are cumulative. The term “including” means “including without limitation.” The headings of sections of this EULA are for reference purposes only and have no substantive effect.
Force Majeure. Customer acknowledges and understands that if Wafeq is unable to provide Services as a result of a force majeure event Wafeq will not be in breach of this EULA and will not be liable for delays caused by such event. A force majeure event means any event beyond the control of Wafeq.
Severable. NOTHING IN THIS EULA WILL AFFECT ANY NON-WAIVABLE STATUTORY RIGHTS THAT APPLY TO CUSTOMER. Any provision hereof found by a tribunal of competent jurisdiction to be illegal or unenforceable shall be automatically conformed to the minimum requirements of law and the validity, legality, and enforceability of all other provisions shall remain in full force and effect.
Waiver. The failure to exercise, or delay in exercising, a right, power or remedy provided in this EULA or by law in one instance shall not preclude enforcement thereof on future occasions.
Independent Contractors. Customer’s relationship to Wafeq is that of an independent contractor, and neither Party is an agent or partner of the other. Customer will not have, and will not represent to any third party that it has, any authority to act on behalf of Wafeq.
Entire Agreement. This EULA constitutes the entire agreement between the Parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersedes any and all prior agreements, negotiations, or other communications, whether written or oral. This EULA may be executed in one or more counterparts, each of which shall be deemed an original and all of which shall be taken together and deemed to be one instrument. A printed version of this EULA and of any notice given in electronic form shall be admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings based upon or relating to this EULA to the same extent and subject to the same conditions as other business documents and records originally generated and maintained in printed form.
Amendments. Wafeq reserves the right to change this EULA at any time and from time to time upon notice by posting revisions to this EULA (including the description of the Services) on Wafeq’s website. Continued use of the Services after Customer become aware of any such changes shall constitute Customer’s consent to such changes. Customer is responsible for regularly reviewing the most current version of this EULA which is available on Wafeq’s website.
