15. Transacting with Afri Ride App

  • When you use our App you communicate with us using a device, so there is no direct personal contact between you and us.
  • We will act on all instructions that seem to come from you – even if they are actually coming from someone pretending to be you. After your password has been entered, we may assume that any instruction is genuine. So even if someone else used your password, we may carry an instruction as if you have authorized it.
  • You can instruct us to transact in line with the service you have on your profile. We will treat your instructions to us in line with your profile.
  • You cannot cancel, change or stop an instruction after you have sent it to us. A payment cannot be cancelled or reversed, even if it is a repeated payment.
  • We are not responsible for any loss you suffer because you repeated a payment instruction (sent it though more than once) and we then made more than one payment. You waive (give up) any claim against us if this happens. Please contact our Customer Care Centre if you have repeated a payment by mistake.
  • We are not responsible for any loss you suffer if you enter the wrong details for your transaction.
  • Do not assume we have received your instruction until we have told you that we have via email. If you’re not sure that an instruction or payment has gone through, contact our Customer Care Centre to check.

  • You may delete or change future-dated instruction if they have not yet been made (been actioned by you).
  • You must think about the effects of each transaction, including the tax effects.

  • It is your responsibility to keep your password secret and safe at all times. Someone who knows your password could get access to your profile and sent instructions and make transactions on your account.
  • You waive (give up) any claim you may have against us for any loss you may suffer if you have compromised your password to any unauthorized third party.
