Software Services Terms of Use

Note about important provisions

To the extent that the Consumer Protection Act, No. 68 of 2008 applies, we have a duty to point out certain important provisions in these Terms of Use to you. The clauses which contain these important provisions and reasons why they are important are set out below.  IT IS ALSO VERY IMPORTANT THAT YOU READ ALL OF THESE CLAUSES CAREFULLY AND NOT JUST WHAT WE SAY BELOW.

LIMITATIONS OF RISK, LEGAL RESPONSIBILITIES AND LIABILITY. Clauses 2.3, 2.6, 4.1, 4.2, 10, 11 and 12 are important because they limit and exclude obligations, liabilities and legal responsibilities that we and other persons or entities may otherwise have to you.  As a result of these clauses, your rights and remedies against us and these other persons and entities are limited and excluded. These clauses also limit and exclude your right to recover or make claims for losses, damages, liability or harm you or others may suffer.

ASSUMPTIONS OF RISK, LEGAL RESPONSIBILITIES AND LIABILITY BY YOU.  Clauses 2.4, 2.6, 2.8, 3.8 and 13 are important because you take on risk, legal responsibilities and liability. As a result of these clauses, you may also be responsible for claims and other amounts. You will also be responsible for, and you accept, various risks, damages, harm, and injury which may be suffered by you and others for what is stated in these clauses.

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS OF FACT BY YOU. Clauses 2.4, 2.8 and 9 are important because they each contain statements which are acknowledgements of fact by you. You will not be able to deny that the statements aren’t true. We may take action against you and may have claims against you as a result of these statements.

INDEMNITIES BY YOU. Clause 13 requires  you to indemnify (hold harmless) 4Sight Holdings Limited and other persons or entities within its Group of companies against claims, loss, damages, and harm that may be suffered by us and other persons or entities as a result of the events set out in clause 14. You also required to indemnify us and other persons and entities against claims for loss, damages, and harm that may be made by any person or entity as a result of the events set out in clause 14. This places various risks, liabilities, obligations and legal responsibilities on you and you will be responsible and liable for the payment of the value of the claims, loss, damages, and harm that may be suffered or claimed.
