GeneralEach Darasa may have one or more individuals who are responsible for overseeing the use of and monitoring the content posted to, such Darasa (the “Darasa Creator”). Darasa’s may exist on the Service absent a Darasa Creator; in such case Users are responsible for conducting themselves in accordance with this Agreement.
From time to time, Users may be asked to confirm their account on the Darasa via an email message containing a hyperlink to the User’s Darasa email address. If such account is not reconfirmed, the account is removed. In addition users who have commenced the registration but have not confirmed their account will be deleted after exactly one week. Once a User is removed from a Darasa, the content of that User remains on the Darasa and is the sole property of the company.
Users belonging to an Institution should follow their particular company’s policies, guidelines, and procedures concerning the Content they post to the Service. Users may delete their own User Content from the Darasa, so long as they are a Member of that Darasa. Darasa Creators may delete the User Content of one or more Users in their Darasa.
GroupsIndividual Users may form a group to segment the audience for certain User Content (“Group”). Each Group may have one or more administrators (the “Group Administrator”). A Group may be designated as open to any User in a Darasa (a “Public Group”) or a Group may be limited to certain Users in a Darasa with membership subject to the approval of the Group Administrator (a “Private Group”). A Group Administrator may add or remove Users to that particular Group. Though Users may establish a Private Group, User Content posted within a Private Group on a Darasa is owned by that Darasa.

Billing TermsA Darasa Creator has access to the features available here. Such tools are available for a monthly license fee based on the number of users in that Darasa per month.
If there is one Darasa Creator for a Darasa, such person will be responsible for payment of any fees due for such Darasa. If there is more than one Darasa Creator for a Darasa, the initial Darasa Creator will be the billing party of record (the "Customer") unless otherwise changed.
The Customer agrees to pay for all products ordered through the Darasani web site using the payment method indicated, and provides Darasani express authorization to charge said fees to the Customer's payment provider at time of purchase. Fees owed depend on the quantity of Darasa Users per month. Payment of fees shall not be contingent on any events other than the quantity of Darasa Users per month, unless otherwise agreed in writing by both parties. Any attorney fees, court costs, or other costs incurred in collection of delinquent undisputed amounts shall be the responsibility of and paid for by Customer. If payment is not current, Darasani may immediately cease to provide any and all services to the customer. The fees paid for monthly Darasa usage are non-refundable, regardless of whether the Claimed Darasa is terminated prior to the end of the then-current monthly billing period.
Charges will automatically renew using the Customer's current credit card account number unless Customer cancels their Darasa Administration by email to [email protected] three (3) days prior to the renewal date to cancel such subscription. All cancellation requests will be processed within five (5) business days. Once the cancellation is processed, a confirmation email will be sent via the customer's email account on record with Darasani. If Customer has a question about a cancellation, Customer should contact Darasani at [email protected]. The Company reserves the right to change its fees or billing methods at any time. The Company will provide timely notice to the affected Customers of any such changes.
It is the Customer's responsibility to promptly provide the Company with any contact or billing information changes or updates (including phone number, email address, credit card numbers, etc.). Account updates should be made online via the "My Account" tab within the "Administrator" section, once Customer has logged into www.Darasani.com. Darasani does not validate all credit card information required by the Customer's payment provider to secure payment.
The Customer must notify Darasani about any billing problems or discrepancies within 90 days after charges first appear on their Account statement. If it is not brought to Darasani's attention within 90 days, Customer agrees to waive their right to dispute such problems or discrepancies.
