By using One Read, you agree to these conditions. Please read them carefully.
These Terms are between you and One Read and/or its affiliates (“One Read Africa”, “We” or “Us”) and govern our respective rights and obligations. Please note that your use of the One Read and the oneread.africa website and your One Read subscription are also governed by the agreements listed and linked to below, as well as all other applicable terms, conditions, limitations, and requirements on the oneread.africa website, all of which (as changed over time) are incorporated into these Terms. If you sign up to One Read, you accept these terms, conditions, limitations and requirements.
As a member of One Read, you may read the One Read Current Read as an ebook or listen to the audiobook on the mobile applications. You may also read and listen to the Bonus Book, where available. Every month, we will add a new title, and remove the Previous Read. If you are located outside of these 41 countries on the African continent, the books will not be available to you. If your subscription ends and is not renewed, you will no longer have access to the Current Read
Fees and Renewal
The One Read subscription fees are $1.99 per month and $11.99 per year. We do not control the exchange rates set by your card provider or the app stores and cannot be held liable for any additional charges. From time to time, we may offer different membership terms, and the fees for such membership may vary. Membership fees may be subject to tax and are non-refundable except as expressly set forth in these Terms.
Unless you notify us before a charge that you want to cancel or do not want to auto renew, you understand your One Read subscription will automatically continue and you authorise us (without notice to you, unless required by applicable law) to collect the then-applicable subscription fees and any taxes, using any payment method we have on record for you.
If all payment methods we have on file for you are declined for payment of your subscription, your membership will be canceled unless you provide us with a new payment method. If you provide us with a new payment method and are successfully charged before your membership is cancelled, your new membership period will be based on the original renewal date and not the date of the successful charge.
From time to time we may also offer non-recurring memberships. The provisions in this section regarding automatic renewal are not applicable to those memberships.
You may cancel your membership by visiting your Apple or Google Play account settings and adjusting your subscription settings. If you cancel your membership, you will not receive a refund of any membership fees already paid. When your membership is cancelled, you will no longer be able to access the Current Read.
We reserve the right to accept or refuse membership at our discretion. You may not transfer or assign your One Read membership or any One Read benefits. We may take reasonable actions necessary to prevent fraud, including placing restrictions on your account at any one time.
We sometimes offer certain customers various promotional memberships, which are subject to these Terms except as otherwise stated in the promotional offers. Trial members may at any time (through Your Account) choose not to continue to paid membership at the end of the trial period.
Termination by Us
We may terminate your subscription at our discretion without notice. If we do so, we will give you a prorated refund based on the number days remaining in your membership. However, we will not give any refund for termination related to conduct that we determine, in our discretion, violates these Terms or any applicable law, involves fraud or misuse of the membership, or is harmful to our interests or another user. Our failure to insist upon or enforce your strict compliance with these Terms will not constitute a waiver of any of our rights.
Disputes; Limitation of Liability
Any dispute or claim arising from or relating to these Terms or your membership is subject to the binding arbitration, governing law, disclaimer of warranties and limitation of liability and all other terms in the One Read Terms and Conditions. You agree to those terms by signing up for One Read. Without limiting the disclaimer of warranties and limitation of liability in the One Read Terms and Conditions, our total liability under these Terms will not exceed the total subscription fees you paid in the twelve months prior to the claim.
When you use One Read, or send e-mails, text messages, and other communications from your desktop or mobile device to us, you may be communicating with us electronically. You consent to receive communications from us electronically, such as e-mails, texts, mobile push notices, or notices and messages on this application or through the other One Read platforms, such as our website, our social media accounts and our Whatsapp account, and you can retain copies of these communications for your records. You agree that all agreements, notices, disclosures, and other communications that we provide to you electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such communications be in writing.

Any dispute or claim relating in any way to your use of any One Read Service, or to any products or services sold or distributed by One Read or through OneRead.africa will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify. The Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to this agreement.
There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages), and must follow the terms of this agreement as a court would.
We each agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. We also both agree that you or we may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.
By using any One Read platform, you agree that the laws of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, applicable federal law, and the laws of Lagos state, without regard to principles of conflict of laws, will govern these Conditions of Use and any dispute of any sort that might arise between you and One Read.
