You understand and expressly agree that:
Paid Content is available through the Services. Paid Content is licensed between users, not sold. Licenses for Paid Content are non-exclusive, and are valid for a period of time determined by the Licensor. Without limiting the generality of the terms of the previous section with regard to Content or the next section with regard to Prohibited Acts, the present section describes the rights and responsibilities of authors and purchasers of Paid Content, and of ChallengeU, as well as aspects of the payment process.
Authors of Paid Content (hereinafter “Licensors”).
Purchasers of Paid Content (hereinafter “Licensees”).
Rights and Responsibilities of ChallengeU with Respect to the Paid Content.
All purchases of Paid Content licenses made through the Website are processed using a secure https:// connection, and payment processing is handled through the online payment processor Stripe.
Stripe accepts a wide variety of payment options, but this is subject to change without notice. Once transactions are accepted by the Stripe, they are processed in accordance with the Stripe’s program terms and conditions, which are available at https://stripe.com/ca/terms, and are hereby incorporated by reference in the present Terms of Service. ChallengeU and Stripe are unaffiliated companies and ChallengeU has no influence on the operations of Stripe, and ChallengeU shall in no way be held responsible for any losses or damages, direct or indirect, pecuniary or otherwise, resulting from any error or failure on the part of Stripe.
Pricing of the Paid Content licenses are determined by the Licensor, and can found on the Website at the time of purchase of the Paid Content license. All prices are firm and in Canadian dollars that may be converted to other currencies by Stripe at the time of payment processing, depending on your country of origin and / or credit card account agreement, or the terms of your account of other payment method.
In the event that Paid Content is mistakenly listed at an incorrect price by the Licensor, ChallengeU reserves the right to refuse or cancel any orders placed for Paid Content listed at the incorrect price. ChallengeU reserves the right to refuse or cancel any such orders whether or not the order has been confirmed and the Licensee's credit card or other payment method. If the Licensee has already been charged for the purchase and the order is cancelled, ChallengeU shall issue a credit to the credit card or other payment method used to make the purchase in the amount of the incorrect price (plus any taxes, as applicable).
