- Fees and Payments
You may agree to one-time, monthly or yearly contract agreements with ClickBiz. Some components of the platform and services require payment of fees, and this has been described for each product on the platform. If you sign up for these components, you must pay all applicable fees.
We reserve the right to change our prices and/or bundle certain products together for pricing purposes and may do so at any time. You authorise us to make any reasonably necessary inquiries to validate your account and financial information.
All prices are in INR and do not include any taxes, cesses, levies, duties or similar statutory assessments of any nature, including, for example, GST, Cess, or other taxes, assessable by any jurisdiction. The taxes are added during the time of payment of fees. It is your responsibility to determine what, if any, taxes apply to the payments you make or receive, and it is solely your responsibility to assess, collect, report and remit the correct taxes to the appropriate authority.
If you purchase any product or service that we offer on the platform or using third party services, you consent to ClickBiz or our third party service providers storing your bank account or card information and you authorise us to charge you any fees for products and services you may purchase, and any applicable taxes in connection with your use of the products or services to the bank account or card you provide. Furthermore, you will reimburse us for all costs associated with the collection of any overdue amounts, including any interest due for the same. If the provided bank account is closed or card expires and you do not provide a new bank account or card information or cancel your account, you authorise us to continue billing you and you will remain responsible for any uncollected fees.
For recurring subscription payments, your contract will automatically renew at the end of the contract term for an additional contract term of the same length unless you cancel your account, and your preferred payment method will be charged accordingly. You may turn off the auto-renew feature for your current contract at any time. You may send cancellation requests by emailing us at [email protected].
- Cancellation and Modification Terms
If you terminate your usage of the platform and services, your cancellation will take effect immediately. After cancellation, you will no longer have access to your website and we may delete all information on your website. We accept no liability for such deleted information or content.
We will seek to update, improve, and expand our platform and our services on an ongoing basis. We may modify data storage limits, add or delete website themes, and replace, deny access, suspend or even discontinue the platform or service, partially or wholly, or modify prices for all products or services or a few of them at our sole discretion. All of these changes are effective upon their posting on our platform and any direct communication to you shall not be needed.
We further reserve the right to withhold, remove and or discard any content available as part of your account, with or without notice if deemed by us in our sole discretion to be contrary to these terms. Consequently, we request you to take continual backups of your website so that you have a fail-safe option in case the website theme or product is no longer supported by us.
We also reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to limit or cease email, phone or chat support to you if you consume a disproportionate amount of services or otherwise negatively affect our ability to provide support to other customers.
The free hosting, free domain and free set-up offer with website product comes with a three (3) calendar days refund policy if the domain name has not been purchased or the website has not been set up. If any services have been provided to the customer or steps taken to provide the same within those three (3) calendar days, then the fee paid is refunded after deducting costs of the domain and any other services, including but not limited to transaction and administrative costs.
All other one-time, monthly or yearly contract products and services are subject to the same refund terms.
All refund requests are to be mailed to [email protected] with the subject line: Refund Request.
If any such refund originates from the downgrade of a service, then a pro-rated credit will be issued to your ClickBiz account for the difference in the cost of the two services for the remainder of your original contract period. This credit is adjusted against future payments and not refunded in cash. It should be noted that downgrading your account may result in the loss of content, features, or capacity of your account. We do not accept any liability for such loss.

- Reseller Agency
If you use our platform and services to cater for your third party client, your use of the platform and service shall be subject to the additional terms set forth under this section.
- Your relationship with your client is strictly between you and the client. We will not be a party to any agreement you have with your client. The manner and means that you choose to perform your services are in your sole discretion and control. However, you agree to perform these services in a timely and professional manner, consistent with industry practice and in conformance with these terms
- You accept full responsibility for all client websites under your account and for each client website’s adherence to these terms
- While we allow agencies and resellers to offer our service under a private label, this private label is in no way guaranteed and we will in no way be held responsible for any failure to maintain this private label
- You may not group multiple client sites under one account owned by you
- In the event your client contacts us, we will direct them to contact you. In the event you fail to support your client and we receive a request from your client stating that you have not been responsive, we reserve the right to support your client directly
- Payments for your use of the platform and services are calculated on a per website basis like with our standard free website, free domain and free set-up with hosting product. Each client website under your account that is published live to a client-owned domain may incur one-time, monthly or yearly service charges. These service charges are billed to your bank account or card on file for your ClickBiz account
- Monthly service charges, if any, are billed each month for the upcoming month’s service, based on the total service charges of all client websites. If a new client website is published mid-month, a pro-rated amount will be included on your next month’s invoice
- No refunds will be given for any days remaining in your current billing cycle
- You understand and agree that you, as the Account Holder, are ultimately responsible for payment for every client website under your account. If at any time the billing obligations of any client website are not met, we will have the right to disable the client website until the billing obligation is met
- Resale of Service
You will not reproduce, duplicate, copy, sell, resell, or exploit any portion of the platform or services without our express written permission, which may be in the form of a separate written agreement with ClickBiz.
ClickBiz can be used by resellers and agencies to cater to their third party clients. Such use is explicitly permitted under the Reseller Agency terms above.
This section applies to all ClickBiz registered owners and users who have used our services to secure free or paid domain name registration services (hereinafter ‘domain services’).
Your use of the domain services provided by ClickBiz serves as your consent to these terms. Some of the service packages include ClickBiz registering an Internet domain name or renewing your existing domain name on your behalf. For the purpose of procuring and/or maintaining domains, ClickBiz will act only as the agent between you and the domain name service provider responsible for domain name allocation (hereinafter ‘registrar’), which will be GoDaddy.com. All new registrations and subsequent renewals of those registrations will therefore also be subject to the GoDaddy.com terms and conditions located at: https://in.godaddy.com/legal/agreements. ClickBiz reserves the right to utilise another domain name service provider at any time, in which case the terms and conditions of such organisation will apply complementarily to these terms and such other domain name service provider shall be deemed a ‘Registrar’ for purposes of these terms.
ClickBiz may provide one free domain name for up to one year or more, with the purchase of a new annual subscription plan. The domain will be included for the lifetime of your ClickBiz account, and the domain will be registered in your name and will remain with you as long as you cover any applicable domain registration fees following the free domain registration and renewal years. The free domain name only applies to certain top-level domains (e.g. .com, .net, .org and .in) when signing up for a new plan, provided the annual cost of the domain is not more than 15% of your subscription fee for the first year and not more than 20% of the subscription fee for subsequent years.
You are responsible for providing your or your client’s correct and complete data regarding the domain name holder (hereinafter ‘registrant’) and the administrative contact when registering the domain name. ClickBiz will serve as the technical contact for such time as you are using ClickBiz services.
Before applying for a domain name, it is your responsibility to check that the domain name does not violate the rights of any third party or contravene any applicable law, rule or regulation. We will defer activation of a domain name until payment of the agreed fees for the registration services has been received.
ClickBiz is in no position to influence the allocation of the domain name by the registrar. We can neither guarantee that the requested domain names will be allocated to you and/or that allocated domain names are free of third-party rights nor guarantee their continued existence. Any information we provide regarding the availability of a domain name is based on the data provided by third parties and only refers to the time that information is requested. The domain will not be deemed as allocated before registration of the domain in your name as the registrant, and its entry in the database of the registrar.
The initial registration term for purchased domains will be for 12 months and such registration will auto-renew for successive 12-month periods. You may be charged for auto-renewal thirty calendar days before your domain expires, despite the fact that the date may differ from your ClickBiz website subscription renewal date. You can, of course, opt out of auto-renewal by emailing us at [email protected]. We may offer an auto-renew option in your settings. Each purchased domain name is registered in your name and is yours to keep, as long as you pay any applicable fees after the free period.
You will not receive any discount on or refund of fees paid for the hosting if you purchase a new domain, or renew an existing domain, and cancel your domain registration with ClickBiz by contacting us at [email protected]. Your right and title to your domain name allow you to transfer a purchased domain to another domain provider.
Regardless of the identity of the registrant or any other contact information in your domain name records, any domain name registered through our platform or services using your ClickBiz account is covered by these terms.
Maintaining accurate and current billing information is a mandatory condition of maintaining your ClickBiz account. Such data must include the full and real name of the registrant, a physical mailing address that does not include PO boxes or anonymous addresses, a valid email address and a telephone number. If this information changes, you must immediately inform us of this change by updating it online. Please note that if your billing information, including your current bank account or card information, is not current, we will not renew your domain and it may subsequently expire.
Subject to these terms and those of the registrar, you may transfer all domain names registered through us to another domain name service provider by following the online instructions provided by the new service provider and ClickBiz. Should we, due to failure on the part of you, the account holder, or the new domain name service provider, be unable to make the domain transfer to your new domain name service provider, we are expressly entitled to have the cancelled domain name deleted by the relevant domain name service provider after the cancellation date has lapsed, and we will not be liable to you or any third party for such deletion. We reserve the right to allow domain transfers only if you have settled all undisputed pending claims with us.
It may not always be possible to recover a domain name after it has expired, and ClickBiz has sole discretion in determining when a domain name can be renewed post-expiry and what fees will be applicable. If you forfeit a domain name for non-payment, ClickBiz will have the right, in its sole discretion, to:
- Register and use the domain name for its own purpose;
- Sell or transfer the domain name to a third party; or
- Delete the domain name and allow any new registrant anywhere in the world to register the domain name anew
Further, you agree that ClickBiz may charge your account or card you have on file with ClickBiz to recover any amounts outstanding on your account.
On certain occasions, domain name registrations may become the subject of a legal challenge. If ClickBiz is made a party to any legal action by virtue of one of your domain name registrations, you agree to be responsible for all of ClickBiz’s costs and legal fees and to indemnify and hold ClickBiz harmless from any action.
If ClickBiz is notified that a complaint has been filed with a judicial or administrative body regarding your domain name, ClickBiz may, at its sole discretion:
- Lock or suspend your ability to use, make modifications to, or transfer your registration records; and/or
- Deposit control of your registration record with the appropriate judicial entity by supplying a registrar certificate from us.
You must notify us immediately if you lose the rights to a domain name registered by ClickBiz on your behalf.
The email services provided to you by ClickBiz are offered using third party email service providers and as a part of the hosting package, and are to be used for official reasons only.
Your emails must comply with all applicable domestic and international laws. This includes the laws applicable to you and also laws applicable to ClickBiz and all recipients to whom you intend to send emails. Examples of applicable laws include laws relating to spam or unsolicited commercial email, privacy, security, obscenity, defamation, intellectual property, pornography, terrorism, national security, gambling, child protection, and other applicable laws. It is your responsibility to know and understand the laws applicable to your use of your email.
You are solely responsible for your products and services and any other promotion and content contained in or referred to in your emails. You agree to use the emails in a lawful, safe and professional manner, consistent with industry best practices, including keeping reliable records. You are solely responsible for any and all statements you make and for all user assistance, warranty and support of your products and services.
Your emails must follow all applicable guidelines and refrain from examples of practices provided below that may violate these terms and applicable laws:
You Will NOT:
- Use the emails in violation of ClickBiz’s terms or of any law applicable to you or your Recipients
- Use the emails to send spam. In case of marketing emails using your official email IDs, you must ensure that all recipients have explicitly granted permission to receive emails from you by affirmatively opting in to receive those emails. All emails and messages sent by using any email marketing service must comply with anti-spam policies, outlined below:
- ClickBiz has a no tolerance spam policy and does not knowingly or intentionally do business with any user or company that participates in sending spam or unsolicited business emails. We do not sell or exchange personal information from our opt-in lists
- An email is spam if, among other things:
- The recipient’s personal identity and context are irrelevant because the message is equally applicable to many other potential recipients;
- The recipient has not verifiably granted deliberate, explicit and still-revocable permission for it to be sent; and
- The transmission and reception of the message appears to give a disproportionate benefit to the sender
- Spam is an issue of consent, not content. A recipient should ‘affirmatively opt in,’ or expressly consent to receiving the message, either in response to a clear and conspicuous request or at the recipient’s own initiative
- If you receive spam complaints or run into compliance problems, or if ClickBiz identifies a potentially problematic contact list, we will first ask questions to try to understand your business as well as your marketing goals. If we determine that a list is not consent-based or is too old or problematic to work with, we will require that it be removed from your account. In certain instances, we may ask you to find another service provider because our goals are simply not compatible
- If you feel a ClickBiz user is sending unsolicited email, you can report it to us by sending your complaint to [email protected]
- Use the emails to request, collect or send any non-public or personally identifiable information about another user or any other person without their express prior written consent (or the parent’s consent in the case of a minor), illegal information, or any other information you do not have the right to request, collect or distribute
- Use the emails to send campaigns that link to or display pornography, other sexually explicit content, illegal goods or services, or any other content that ClickBiz deems inappropriate in its sole discretion
- Transmit any message, information, data, text, software or image, or other content that is not owned by you or legally licensed to you, or is unlawful, harmful, threatening, abusive, harassing, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, libellous, or otherwise objectionable which may violate another’s right of privacy or publicity
- Send through emails any unethical, false or misleading advertising, promotions, or sales efforts and practices
- Post or transmit any materials that contain a virus or corrupted data
- Use purchased or rented email lists
- Use third party email addresses, domain names, or mail servers without proper permission
- Send emails to non-specific addresses or distribution lists, newsgroups, publicly available press or media addresses or purchased email addresses
- Send emails that result in an unacceptable number of spam complaints even though the emails themselves were not actually spam
- Disguise the origin or subject matter of any email or falsify or manipulate the originating email address, subject line, headers, or transmission path information for any email. For any email or message sent by you, (a) the ‘from’ line must accurately and in a non-deceptive manner identify your identity or your organisation’s identity; and (b) the ‘subject’ line of your email must relate to the email’s actual content and must not contain any deceptive or misleading content regarding the overall subject matter of the email message
- Fail to include in each email your valid physical mailing address or other additional details required under the law in the geographies where you operate

- Legal Jurisdiction and Governing Law; Class Action Waiver
We believe in equity and will address your legal and equitable concerns or issues before any arbitration action is contemplated. Please contact us at [email protected]. We will revert by email to informally resolve the dispute. You or ClickBiz may start a formal dispute resolution process through Arbitration if the dispute is not resolved within 30 days of your last submission.
You may only resolve disputes with us on an individual basis and you will not bring a claim as a plaintiff or a class member in a class, consolidated, or representative action such as class action, class arbitration, private attorney general action, or consolidation with other arbitrations.
Any claim relating to these terms that is not resolved through our informal process, or as set forth below, will be resolved finally and exclusively by binding individual arbitration with a single arbitrator under the provisions of the Arbitration and Conciliation Act, 1996.
The arbitrator shall be responsible for determining all admissible arbitration issues, including issues relating to whether the terms are enforceable, unconscionable or illusory and any defence to arbitration, including waiver, delay, laches, or estoppel. The arbitrator’s award will be binding on the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. While an arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief, the arbitrator may do so only with respect to the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the individual party’s claim. An arbitrator’s decision and judgment thereon will not have a precedential or collateral estoppel effect in any other case or arbitration.
For purposes of this arbitration provision, references to you and ClickBiz also include respective holding company, subsidiaries, group businesses, affiliates, agents, employees, predecessors, successors and assignees as well as authorised users or beneficiaries of the platform or services. Subject to and without waiver of the arbitration provisions above, you hereby agree that any arbitration or other judicial proceedings will be under the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of Delhi and the laws of India. If any part of these terms is held invalid or unenforceable, that part will be construed to reflect the parties’ original intent, and the remaining portions will remain in full force and effect.
These terms and your use of the platform or services do not and shall not be construed to create any partnership, joint venture, employer-employee, agency, or franchisor-franchisee relationship between you and ClickBiz or its holding company, subsidiaries or group businesses.
We may provide notices to you via either email or regular mail. The platform and services may also provide notices of changes to these terms or other matters by displaying notices or links to notices to you generally on the platform or services. Any failure on the part of ClickBiz to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. These terms constitute the entire agreement between you and us and govern your use of the platform and services, superseding any prior agreements, including, but not limited to, any prior versions of these terms.
You also may be subject to additional terms and conditions that may apply when you use affiliate or other services, third-party content or third-party software. If any provision of these terms or incorporated documents are found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavour to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of these terms remain in full force and effect.
The section titles in these terms and any part of the platform, services, social media or external media are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect.
