Terms of Service

This document outlines the responsibilities and obligations of the customer (hereafter known as "You") and Wormly Pty Ltd, an Australian Proprietary Company Limited By Shares (hereafter known as "Wormly" or "Us"). Our service offerings are collectively referred to as the "Service" throughout this document.

Your relationship with Wormly

Your use of Wormly’s products, software, services and web sites (referred to collectively as the “Services” in this document and excluding any services provided to you by Wormly under a separate written agreement) is subject to the terms of a legal agreement between you and Wormly. “Wormly” means Wormly Pty Ltd. This document explains how the agreement is made up, and sets out some of the terms of that agreement.

Unless otherwise agreed in writing with Wormly, your agreement with Wormly will always include, at a minimum, the terms and conditions set out in this document. These are referred to below as the “Universal Terms”.

Your agreement with Wormly will also include the terms of any Legal Notices applicable to the Services, in addition to the Universal Terms. All of these are referred to below as the “Additional Terms”. Where Additional Terms apply to a Service, these will be accessible for you to read either within, or through your use of, that Service.

The Universal Terms, together with the Additional Terms, form a legally binding agreement between you and Wormly in relation to your use of the Services. It is important that you take the time to read them carefully. Collectively, this legal agreement is referred to below as the “Terms”.

If there is any contradiction between what the Additional Terms say and what the Universal Terms say, then the Additional Terms shall take precedence in relation to that Service.

2.3 You may not use the Services and may not accept the Terms if (a) you are not of legal age to form a binding contract with Wormly, or (b) you are a person barred from receiving the Services under the laws of Australia or other countries including the country in which you are resident or from which you use the Services.

You may stop using the Services at any time but must advise Wormly by using the support page within your account.

Commissions will only be paid for referrals deemed by Us to be valid. We use a variety of algorithms in order to best determine if a customer was referred by You.

Commission payments are made via PayPal, and will only be paid once $50 of commissions have been earned by You.

Spam or any form of unsolicited advertising to promote the Service is strictly forbidden and will result in immediate forfeit of all commissions.
