As a Member, you agree to comply with the Terms, any applicable law, regulation or generally accepted practices or guidelines in the relevant jurisdictions. Please refer to all the Obligations during your payment to Apex4Teachers services.
All payments will be processed by the Member’s Credit Card ('Credit Card').

For paid Services you agree to pay the weekly fee specified when you subscribe and enrol a student. When signing up you are committing to paying all instalments under the Agreement which you have entered. All Fees specified on the Website or otherwise quoted by us are in Australian Dollars and must be paid in full, weekly, for using the Services. The weekly payment will be charged only when a student has been registered in the system.
You will be asked to provide a Credit Card number from a card issuer that we accept in order to activate your subscription and ongoing payments – your authorization in this section also applies to our payment processor and any other company who acts as a billing agent for us. You hereby authorize us to charge your specified payment method on a weekly basis, at the end of the weekly payment cycle.

You acknowledge and agree that we will not have any liability whatsoever for any insufficient funds or other charges incurred by you as a result of attempts to charge, and/or place hold on, your specified payment method as contemplated by these Terms.
We use PayPal as our payment gateway provider to process single and recurring payments for subscriptions to our Services. PayPal’s terms and conditions can be found here: www.paypal.com.
We reserve the right, at any time, to change the Fees (or to begin charging fees for any free service), provided that such changes will not apply to the Fees or charges paid, or free services used prior to the time of the change.
Unless otherwise stated, all tuition fees are quoted in Australian Dollars and includes Goods and Services Tax (GST).
In the event of payment decline, the Member will be given 7 days to notify Apex4Teachers via email (email@example.com) of the new details to process any unpaid payments.

6. Refund Policy
There is no refund applicable once a member registers to use Apex4Teachers online services. A Refund of the initial subscription Service Fee will be applicable in the event Apex4Teachers is unable to accept the registration at the initial registration stage to provide the Services. A Refund is at the absolute discretion of Apex4Teacher, in the event it is reasonable to do so under the circumstances (the 'Refund'). In normal circumstances, there will not be any refunds once the member is registered.
7. Termination of Contract
The Terms will continue to apply until terminated by either you or by Apex4Teachers as set out below:
If you want to terminate the Terms, you may do so by:
providing Apex4Teachers with 5 days' notice of your intention to terminate; and closing your accounts for all the services which you use, where Apex4Teachers has made this option available to you. Payment will be processed depending upon the enrolment end of payment cycle and the account will be disabled.
Your notice should be sent, in writing, to Apex4Tutoring Pty Ltd via the 'Contact Us' link on our homepage. Please read the termination of contract in detail at the time of subscribing to Apex4Teachers services.
Apex4Teachers will terminate the member’s access in the event of getting poor feedback from learners. The Member must maintain a high feedback rating. Apex4Teachers takes the learners’ feedback and ratings seriously. Any unsatisfactory feedback will lead to termination of access.
8. Disable of Member User Account
Apex4Teachers expects the subscribers to actively use our services. Subscribers must register to use the system.

What happens when an account is closed?
Once an account is closed, it will be inaccessible — users will not be able to log in to the account. The account and all data associated with the account will be deleted after closure. Subscribers can create another account by paying the initial subscription fee. However, this will not be possible in the event of any major breaches.
9. Payment Default
It is the Member’s responsibility to check if the payment has been processed on a weekly basis. Member’s will be notified via email of any payment default and members will be given 7 days to process the payment. Two consecutive declines in payment will be classified as ‘Payment Default’.
10. Referral Payment
Apex4Teachers provides referral rewards (the ‘Referral Reward’) for members who are referring their colleagues, friends and family members. The concept is designed based on multi-level network marketing. Refer and earn gives additional income to teachers/tutors. The Referral Reward will only be calculated if a new member registers with a referral member ID. Referral Rewards are ongoing, as long as the member is actively using Apex4Teahcers online system. Referral Rewards can be monitored on the Member’s dashboard page. Referral payments will be transferred monthly into the Member’s bank account.
The Member can start any number of referral networks. Apex4Teachers strongly encourages the Member to start a new account in the event that the network has been discontinued.
