9. Membership

By accessing CanadaStartups.org website and affiliated websites offering free and/or paid services, you are accepting both our terms of use/terms and conditions as well as our privacy policy. Our service is to provide small business owners and startup entrepreneurs with an online platform. The online platform consists of tools such the small business startup guide, interactive timeline, business plan builder tool, investor pitchdeck tool and the funding directory. CanadaStartups.org does not in any way guarantee any success by using our platform and tools and in no way should the information provided by CanadaStartups.org be used to influence your actions and decisions to do or to not do your business or actions. CanadaStartups.org does not provide any funding or financial incentives to small business owners or entrepreneurs, nor is our Funding Platform/Database/Directory to be used in hopes of obtaining funding or financing, or any monetary assistance from CanadaStartups.org. We do not provide funding, financing or monetary support to any individual or business. We are not lenders nor investors. By using our website, free and paid services you understand and accept these rules. As a monthly subscription holder you abide by the same rules as a regular member of CanadaStartups.org however, your account is available month by month. If at any time you fail to make your monthly subscription payment, your account will be terminated within 24 hours. As a monthly paid subscription holder you are responsible for paying your subscription for a minimum of 6 months with a 30 day notice to cancel having to be provided after the first 6 months. Any accounts not paid will result in collection proceedings.

10. Your Account

By registering and paying either a monthly, or a one time fee to CanadaStartups.org you agree to waive all rights to a refund once you’ve logged in to our platform. Due to the fact that CanadaStartups.org provides sensitive information which we sell as our service, logging in to our platform and using our services, you will not be allowed to obtain a refund. We urge that you are familiar with the service and the product offered by CanadaStartups.org before your registration and purchase. Prior to registering with a paid account, be sure to speak to our support team and ensure you have all of the information available which will help you make an informed decision. Note that any registrations under a promotional plan will not be eligible for a refund. In the event that you registered for a monthly membership, you may cancel your subscription at any time after the initial 6 months of services (with no refund provided for the already paid months), and with an additional 30 days notice for cancellation with a valid reason. Any accounts and fees being charged back, disputed or reported as unauthorized will immediately void your account until the investigation of such transactions are investigated.

11. Cancellation / Refund Policy

CanadaStartups.org does not provide refunds once you have successfully logged in to the platform or used our tools, resources and services which are only available to our members. A 30 Day Refund Policy is available to all members who do not log in to the platform within the first 30 days as long as a valid and acceptable reason is provided. All other refund or account cancellation requests are void aside from a request to cancel the monthly subscription after initial 6 months plus 30 day notice. Failing to provide notice to monthly subscription, or attempting to cancel your account prior to the 6 months term, you may automatically be charged for remaining months up to the end of the term. Those members on a free trial account (any length of time) will automatically be charged after the free trial has expired – you may cancel your free trial account any time within the given time of the trial to avoid being charged the monthly subscription fee. To cancel your monthly subscription before the trial expires simply get in touch with us before the trial is up.

12. Ultimate Authority

CanadaStartups.org and it’s representatives hold ultimate authority. Any inappropriate behavior by paid members could result in account termination and further action. Any and all acts by members to deface or libel CanadaStartups, our tools, resources and services will result in account termination and further actions.
