If you are a consumer, as defined in the Consumer Protection Act 68 of 2008 ("Consumer Protection Act"), we have a duty to point out certain important terms to you. The paragraphs which contain these important terms and the reasons why they are important are set out below.

  1. Limitation of risk, legal responsibilities and liability. Clause 8 of the Privacy Policy and Data Protection section and clauses 1 and 2 of the Disclaimer and Limitation of Liability section are important because they limit and exclude obligations, liabilities and legal responsibilities that we may otherwise have to you. As a result of these clauses, your rights and remedies against us are limited and excluded. These clauses also limit and exclude your right to recover or make claims for any losses, damages, liability or harm you or others may suffer. In summary, these paragraphs state that you know and accept that the Internet is not absolutely secure and that there is a risk that your Personal Information will not be secure when transmitted over the Internet.
  2. Assumption of risk, legal responsibilities and liability by you. Clauses 1 and 2 of the Disclaimer and Limitation of Liability section are important because you take on risk, legal responsibilities and liability. You will also be responsible for, and you accept, damages, harm, and injury which may be suffered by you and others in relation to what is stated in these clauses.
  3. Acknowledgements of fact by you. Clauses 4 and 6 of the Privacy Policy and Data Protection section and clause 2 of the Disclaimer and Limitation of Liability section are important because they each contain statements which are acknowledgements of fact by you. You will not be able to deny that the statements are true.
