13. MOBILE APPLICATION END-USER LICENCE AGREEMENT FOR THE INTEGRISURE MOBILE APPLICATION: ‘THE INTEGRIAPP’
The IntegriSure Group of Companies (‘we’) hereby grant you* the licence/right to download, install and use the IntegriApp for the sole purpose of accessing the services made available in this version of THE INTEGRIAPP, on your own mobile device(s) and/or such devices under your control. All copyrights and intellectual property rights will remain ours. Use of logos, trademarks or any other intellectual property without our prior written consent is strictly prohibited. You may not copy, decompile, reverse-engineer, disassemble, attempt to derive the source code of, modify or create derivative versions of the IntegriApp.
Our relationship, more specifically your use of the IntegriApp, will henceforth be regulated by these terms and conditions, read with the terms and conditions applicable to your policy and as amended from time to time. This binding agreement will come into force once you download the IntegriApp and register with us as a user, and will remain in force until terminated by either you or us. Registration/activation is initiated when you press the ‘Register or log in’ button on your mobile device(s). Therefore, it is important that you carefully read these terms and conditions and ensure that you fully understand it. If it is not your intention to be bound by and adhere to these terms and conditions, kindly refrain from accepting it and downloading the app. The downloading of the software for the IntegriApp is free of charge. You, however, remain responsible for the costs and charges of your/the network and data service provider. You are also responsible to (1) ensure that your mobile device(s) can download the IntegriApp and future updates, and (2) regularly check for and install updates. In this regard, kindly note that the IntegriApp is designed to operate optimally with the most recent versions of Android, IOS, Windows Mobile and Blackberry OS. The functionality of the IntegriApp using older versions cannot be guaranteed and such users may experience difficulties or have limited functionality.
Also please be advised that when you use the IntegriApp, we may periodically collect and use technical data and related usage information of and from the device(s) you use, for which you will be deemed to have granted us permission by accepting and downloading the software. In particular, please note that to enable optimum functionality of the IntegriApp, it is best to have the location-based services (GPS setting) and push notifications on your device(s) turned ON. Further note that in providing our services, we may have to make use of, inter alia, mobile device(s) triangulation services to verify your location. This process necessitates that we provide your information and data to our third-party service providers to enable us/them to provide our services, for which you will also be deemed to have granted us permission by accepting and downloading the software. Please be advised that some services, particularly the IntegriAssist services, are limited to within the borders of South Africa.
Our right to terminate this agreement, the IntegriApp or your right to use the app will not be exercised without reasonable notice to you, and will not affect services requested but not fully rendered before the termination of the agreement. Your rights under this agreement may however be terminated immediately and without notice if you fail to comply with any term(s) of this agreement, or if we are advised of any fact or reasonable suspicion pertaining to your use of the IntegriApp that, in our discretion, amounts to abuse or places a legal duty upon us to act. Upon termination of the licence, you may no longer use the IntegriApp and will have to remove it from your mobile device(s).
For optimum service, we will need your most recent information. It remains your responsibility to regularly update your personal and contact details. Requests for changes made through the IntegriApp will be updated on our system once we have received the notice and confirmed it with you verbally and/or in writing. Reasonable care will be taken that an updated schedule is sent to you through your preferred method of communication, although you remain responsible to check that you receive it.
We reserve the right to monitor your usage of the IntegriApp, specifically though not limited to the use of the services it offers. This is done to the extent permitted and/or prescribed by law, and to detect any unauthorised usage and/or abuse. We reserve the right to recoup costs (including our own and of third-party service providers) caused by unauthorised use and/or abuse of services. However, as we respect your privacy, any collection, storage, usage and/or sharing of your personal information will occur only (1) as needed for meeting our obligations and standard of service to you, and (2) as permitted/directed by law.
Amendments and/or updates to or of the IntegriApp may be released from time to time. In so far as this or any other reason may warrant amending this agreement, such amendments will be made electronically by way of notifying you of the updated version. It is your duty to review updates as they become available. Downloading an update constitutes your acceptance of the update, along with all the terms and conditions thereof. If the update is not downloaded within a reasonable time, this will be regarded as notice from you to terminate the agreement
DISCLAIMER (Mobile application: ‘The IntegriApp’)
Privacy and personal information: Although we take reasonable care to safely and securely store and/or guard against the loss or misappropriation of your personal information, we cannot provide an absolute guarantee as to the security of any personal information disclosed through the IntegriApp. You are therefore advised of and will be deemed to have accepted the inherent risk of so disclosing personal information, and hereby indemnify us, including our directors, employees and/or agents, against any claim for loss that may arise from a breach of security. The duty to protect personal information ultimately rests with you, and you should therefore immediately advise us if you suspect a breach of security.
Third-party products and/or services: We do not have control over third-party products and/or services. Although the IntegriApp may allow you to view, access or refer to third-party sites, products and/or services, no endorsements, recommendations and/or guarantees are given in this regard. We are therefore not liable for any loss and/or damage, either direct or contingent, resulting from your use of and/or reliance upon any third party through the IntegriApp.
Mobile device(s) and/or software: You are granted the licence/right to use the IntegriApp on your mobile device(s) and/or mobile device(s) under your control. Should you sell or otherwise dispose of your mobile device(s), or no longer control such device(s), it is your duty to delete the IntegriApp from the device(s) and have it installed on your new device(s). We are not liable for any loss or damage should you fail to do so. We are not liable for loss or damage caused by errors and/or delays should you be unable to access the services due to a fault on/in your mobile device(s) or software or by third-party service providers. We cannot and do not warrant that the services are compatible with your mobile device(s) and/or software. Although we take reasonable precautions against it, you hereby accept the inherent risk of viruses, malicious code and the like, which may inadvertently find their way onto your mobile device(s) through the IntegriApp, and you indemnify us against any claims for loss and/or damage that may result from it. Please note that although device(s) such as tablets are able to use the IntegriApp, the phone functionality would not be available in such instances. Phone services requested via such device(s) will be linked to the registered mobile number.
Although we take reasonable care, use of the IntegriApp occurs at your own risk. The IntegriApp and its services are provided on a best-endeavours basis and we may in our sole discretion suspend or terminate the operation of the app or services provided in terms thereof, without prior notice. We may also from time to time discontinue or disable parts of the services for routine maintenance, upgrades and/or reasons/causes beyond our control. Interruptions in service(s) for maintenance will typically occur once a month for up to a maximum of 48 hours.
Understandably, despite our best efforts, a certain time lapse may occur between requests for service(s) through the IntegriApp and the confirmation of, for instance, insurance cover or the engagement of other service(s). We are not liable for loss or damage that may be caused by such time lapse.
