6. Subscribing for Member Service
The Member Service is a business subscription service. Membership is available on a 12-month subscription-basis. The Member Service is available to companies, firms and sole traders that are operating in Peninsular Malaysia.
The subscription fee ("Fee") is payable in advance. The current Fee is detailed on the "Buy Now" page of the Website and is subject to variation. In subscribing to the Member Service, you agree to pay the Fee at the rate applicable from time to time. There will be no refund of Fee for any unutilised period or services if your subscription is terminated for any reason whatsoever.
The Fee may be paid by credit card, debit card or direct debit. In providing us with card details, you warrant to us that you are an authorised user of the relevant card. By submitting bank account details, you warrant to us that you are an authorised signatory of that account.
Only when you have paid the Fee will you become a "Member" and receive a username and password to access the Member Services, including the Members' section of the Website ("Members' Area").
Once you are a Member, you will be entitled to receive a welcome pack containing details of the Member Services, access the Members' Area of the Website, and be able to use the Member Services. The Member Services are for use only by you in connection with your business. You shall not use the Member Services for any other purpose.

Before the subscription end date, you will receive several email notifications of the upcoming expiry. You may choose to renew your subscription by way of auto-renewal or self-renewal (see further below). Your membership will be renewed for a further 12 months.
The option to have your subscription automatically renewed each year is available to you, if you chose to pay via credit card when you first subscribe with us. Your credit card details will be retained for deduction of the new subscription Fees at the time of each auto-renewal. Your subscription will be renewed for a further 12 months every time, provided that the Fees for your new subscription can be successfully deducted. Your subscription will not be automatically renewed, if deduction is unsuccessful. Auto-renewal will take place each year until you choose to terminate your subscription.
Auto-renewal is not available if you choose to pay by way of debit card or online banking.
If you had paid via online banking or debit card when you first subscribed with us, you will have to pay the new subscription Fees on or before your current subscription end date, to continue your subscription when it expires. Your membership will be renewed for a further 12 months.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: PLEASE NOTE THAT THE FEE FOR YOUR RENEWED SUBSCRIPTION MAY NOT BE THE SAME AS WHEN YOU FIRST SUBSCRIBED WITH US. PLEASE REFER ALWAYS TO WWW.SHAKEUP.ONLINE FOR THE APPLICABLE FEE.

8. Member and User Services
Document Preparation Service
The online document preparation service ("Document Preparation Service") is provided by us. It does not provide legal advice or represent a legal service. It is designed to collect relevant information and data to assist you in the preparation of a legal document ("Document") from a document template (“Template”).
The Document Preparation Service uses a document assembly and drafting system ("System").
Only when you have purchased a Document or a valid subscription will you be able to draft a Document for printing or for legal review.
When using the Document Preparation Service you will be asked a series of questions; the answers you give will dictate the content of the Document produced by the System from the document template. You alone are responsible for ensuring the answers and any information that you give are correct (this includes information in relation to the identity of any parties or signatories, their age or capacity). We rely on you providing the correct information.
You must carefully check that the Document produced fully reflects your wishes. If it does not, you should not execute it.
We will not be responsible for your use of any Document that you have created via the Document Preparation Service. All Documents should be used in conjunction with proper advice as to their suitability for your particular requirements and circumstances.
We disclaim all liability for actions taken or not taken based on a Document. It is your responsibility to ensure that any Document is properly executed.
The Templates available on the Website from which Documents can be created by you using the System have been prepared to produce Documents that comply with the jurisdiction of Peninsular Malaysia only, as is clearly indicated on every Template.
If any person or entity that is to sign a Document is outside the Peninsular Malaysia jurisdiction, it is your responsibility to ensure that the Document is properly executed in accordance with the requirements of that jurisdiction where those requirements prevail.
Documents are prepared in accordance with the law of Malaysia. You should not use them in any other jurisdiction, or if the property the Document deals with is outside the Peninsular Malaysia jurisdiction.
We recommend that before reusing a Document you check the Website to ensure that you have the latest version of the template from which it was created. If we have replaced that template with a revised version, we recommend that you recreate the Document from the latest version of the template.
Documents that you have completed online using the trial package (“Trial Documents”) will be stored online until expiry date of the trial package. Other Documents completed online will be stored online for a minimum period of seven years. After these periods you may not be able to obtain online access to your Documents, and they may be deleted. We reserve the right to levy a reasonable recovery charge in respect of any Documents that are capable of being recovered. If you have not logged in to the Website for a period of 12 months or more, then we reserve the right to store your Documents offline and levy a reasonable recovery charge for you to access them again.
We will not have any responsibility or liability for:
Where the Document is a Will, a trust or a power of attorney
• Verifying your authority or capacity to create a Document, or your answers or any information given by you when, using the Document Preparation Service.
• Proofreading data you have input for typographical errors.

We have no responsibility to supervise the execution of any will or to ensure the correct execution of the will. You will be provided with instructions on how to sign the will in accordance with the laws of Peninsular Malaysia jurisdiction.
With respect to a will, we have no responsibility and will accept no liability for verifying:
- • The identity of the testator
- • That the testator is over 18 years of age
- • The testamentary and/or mental capacity of the testator
- • Whether the testator or any other person was subject to any undue influence when using the Document Preparation Service
- • Whether the testator knew, understood and approved the contents of their Will
- • Whether there were or might be any actual or potential third-party beneficiary(ies) who might have a claim in law against the estate
With respect to a power of attorney, we have no responsibility and will accept no liability for verifying the capacity of the donor or whether the donor was subject to any undue influence in the creation of the power of attorney.
We do not assume any responsibility or liability for failing to provide advice on the terms of any will or trust prepared using the Document Preparation Service should future taxation changes or any other changes in the law render their terms inappropriate. The responsibility for future reviews of the terms of your will or trust rests with you.

Preparation Service. The details of what is included in the bundle will be outlined on the Website.
