5.Contests, Sweepstakes and Promotions
Some parts of Service are billed on a subscription basis (“Subscription(s)”). You will be billed in advance on a recurring and periodic basis (“Billing Cycle”). Billing cycles are set either on a monthly or annual basis, depending on the type of subscription plan you select when purchasing a Subscription.
At the end of each Billing Cycle, your Subscription will automatically renew under the exact same conditions unless you cancel it or Tulix cancels it. You may cancel your Subscription renewal either through your online account management page or by contacting Tulix customer support team.
A valid payment method, including credit card, is required to process the payment for your subscription.

By submitting such payment information, you automatically authorize Tulix to charge all Subscription fees incurred through your account to any such payment instruments.

Use care when inputting Beneficiary and Merchants details. When inputting Beneficiaries, ensure that their names are spelt correctly and provide in full, and verify that you have provided us with the Beneficiary’s correct phone number. For Merchants, ensure that you have input the correct Till or Paybill Number. You represent and warrant to us that all information you enter into the Application or otherwise provide to Tulix is true and complete, including information about you, your Payment Account, and your Beneficiary.

10.Error Resolution and Refunds
For error resolution, transaction cancellation, questions or complaints, contact us at email@example.com.
Any errors made when crediting funds to your personal wallet or to a beneficiary’s wallet can be rectified (including all fees, if any) within three (3) business days provided funds have not been utilized. In the case of making payments to merchants located in Kenya, given the fact that Tulix forwards funds immediately to user specified merchants, your payment is typically not cancellable or refundable. If you believe that you have made a payment in error, you must contact us within thirty (30) minutes after you initiated it at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will attempt to contact the merchant and recover the funds.
The App allows for reversals of all amounts allocated due to account number, telephone number, Beneficiary name or other information incorrectly input, provided that the amount has not yet been utilized. You may be unable to perform a reversal if your allocation has already been utilized to make a payment out to a merchant in accordance with the information you provided.
You have a right to dispute errors in your transaction that you believe to be the fault of Tulix. There is no charge for this service. If you believe there is an error, contact us at email@example.com within 30 days after the error has occurred, and provide your name, contact information, the Beneficiary’s name, the Merchant payment details (where applicable), the date of your transfer, as well as the reason you believe there has been an error. Tulix will investigate and determine whether an error occurred, and we will complete the investigation within 60 days. We will inform you of the results of the investigation within three (3) business days after the investigation is completed. If Tulix was at fault, we will refund the total amount you paid, including fees, if any, within one business day, or as soon as reasonably practicable.
Tulix will pay all refunds (whether resulting from a cancelled or disputed payment or allocation) by a credit to your Wallet. Alternatively, you can choose to have Tulix process the allocation or payment again for no additional charge. Except for our obligation to investigate and refund described above, Tulix is not liable to you for any loss resulting from Tulix’s inability to cancel or refund a payment.
