16.1 Although Wallet One SA uses reasonable care and diligence to ensure that the Services are available, accurate, complete, correct, error-free, secure, up-to-date and/or reliable, Wallet One SA makes no representations or warranties, implied or otherwise, that, amongst others, the Services, the content and technology available from the Website or information provided by Wallet One SA via email or other means will be available, timely, accurate, complete, correct, error-free, secure, 100% uninterrupted, up-to-date and/or reliable, save to the extent expressly provided in this User Agreement. This clause shall only apply to the extent permitted by law, and specifically shall not apply to the extent, if any,to which Wallet One SA may be liable to you under the Consumer Protection Act 68 of 2008 (“CPA”) in relation to the Services and/or under sections 43(5) and 43(6) of the Electronic Communications and Transactions Act 25 of 2002 (“ECT Act”) in relation to Wallet One SA’s payment systems not being sufficiently secure.
16.2 To the extent permitted by law, you therefore agree that the Website and the Service are supplied on an “as is” basis, have not been compiled or supplied to meet your individual requirements, and are used at your sole discretion and risk and that it is your sole responsibility to satisfy yourself prior to accepting this User Agreement that the Service available from and through the Website will meet your individual requirements and be compatible with your hardware and/or software. You are encouraged to report any possible malfunctions and errors by way of email to email@example.com.
16.3 More specifically, to the extent permitted by law:
16.3.1 regarding security, although Wallet One SA will use its reasonable endeavours to ensure the security of the Services and the Wallet One SA e-commerce network infrastructure, we cannot guarantee the security thereof and Wallet One SA will not be liable in any way whatsoever in respect of any loss or damage of whatever nature suffered by you or any third party as a consequence of a breach of security of the Services and/or the Wallet One SA e-commerce network infrastructure;
16.3.2 regarding downtime, you agree that your access to the Website and mobile systems may be restricted from time to time to allow for repairs, maintenance or the introduction of new services, provided that we will attempt to restore the Website and mobile systems as soon as we reasonably can;
16.3.3 hyperlinks provided on the Website to non-Wallet One SA sites are provided as is and Wallet One SA does not necessarily agree with, edit or sponsor the content on such web pages; and
16.3.4 information, ideas and opinions expressed on the Website should not be regarded as professional advice or the official opinion of Wallet One SA and you are encouraged to consult professional advice before taking any course of action related to information, ideas or opinions expressed on the Website.
16.4 Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, we will not, to the extent allowed by law, be responsible for any of the following even if we should have known there was a possibility you could experience the relevant problem and in each case whether suffered by you directly or indirectly:
16.4.1 financial or similar loss of any kind, including, for example, loss of profits, business, estimated savings, chargeable time or goodwill;
16.4.2 any interruption to your business (including interruption to Services) or loss of or damage to information, however that interruption, loss or damage is caused;
16.4.3 loss or damage suffered by you which we could not have reasonably known about at the time you entered into this User Agreement; and
16.4.4 losses you suffer as a result of using any of the Services other than as described in the relevant documents or as otherwise described on our Website.
16.5 To the extent allowed by law, nothing in this User Agreement will prevent or limit either of your or Wallet One SA’s liability for:
16.5.1 fraud or wilful misconduct;
16.5.2 death or personal injury arising out of negligence; or
16.5.3 gross negligence.
16.6 You acknowledge that the allocation of risk and responsibility as set out in this User Agreement is reasonable because it accords with:
16.6.1 Wallet One SA’s inability to control how, and for what purposes, you use the Services;
16.6.2 Wallet One SA not having developed any of the Services specifically for you;
16.6.3 the fact that, while Wallet One SA follows good industry practice, it is not economically possible for Wallet One SA to exhaustively test any software that supports the Services; and
16.6.4 the amount of fees, if any, paid by you for the Services.
16.7 Notwithstanding our aforesaid disclaimer of liability, should we nevertheless be found to be liable to you in relation to the Services for any reason, then, to the extent allowed by law, our maximum aggregate responsibility and liability to you (including for negligence and whether pursuant to one or more claims) in relation to this User Agreement and the Services will be limited to paying you the lesser of an amount equal to the total amount of fees you paid to us for such Service in the 12 months prior to the incident, or R5,000 (five thousand rand).
16.8 To the extent allowed by law, under no circumstances whatsoever will Wallet One SA or any of our affiliates, subsidiaries, agents, suppliers and/or subcontractors be liable to you for any indirect loss, or any incidental, special, punitive or consequential loss or damage, or any direct or indirect loss of profits, arising in relation to this User Agreement, the Website and/or the Services. Some jurisdictions do not allow the limitation or exclusion of liability for incidental or consequential damages, and so in such jurisdictions liability is limited to the fullest extent permitted by law.
16.9 Uncontrollable Events: Whilst we aim to provide uninterrupted Services, unfortunately we cannot guarantee this as interruptions may be caused by factors beyond our reasonable control. To the extent allowed by law,under no circumstances will Wallet One SA be liable for any events beyond our reasonable control. Without detracting from the generality of the aforegoing, you acknowledge that the following circumstances and events may impact upon your use of the Services and further that these circumstances and/or events are beyond Wallet One SA’s reasonable control:
- use of the Services by other Users or Merchants;
- limitations on national and/or international bandwidth capacity;
- telecommunication service operator failure, which includes telecommunication links and line failure;
- mobile telecommunication service operator failure;

- operating system failure;
- access technology failure;
- quality of service of telecommunication links or lines;
- any action, omission and/or failure by you and/or your systems, software, network and/or equipment which has an impact on the Services;
- any other action, omission and/or failure not within Wallet One SA’s control which has an impact on the Services (including but not limited to any natural disaster, war, riot, strike, equipment failure, computer virus, failure or interruption of electrical, telecommunications or other utility services);
- failure of our or your internet service provider and
- distributed denial of service attack (where hackers overload networks with data in an effort to disable them).
To the extent allowed by law, if circumstances happen that are beyond our reasonable control, we will not be liable for any failure to perform our obligations under this User Agreement because of those circumstances, and we will be excused from that failure for so long as those circumstances continue. Wherever possible, we will provide advance warning on our Website of any known or planned interruptions and will take reasonable steps to ensure any interruption is kept as brief as possible.
You hereby indemnify and hold harmless Wallet One SA, its parent, subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, directors and employees, against any and all loss, expense or damage we may suffer, or third party claims which may be made against us, which arise from or in relation to your breach of this User Agreement (including any document it incorporates by reference), or your violation of any law or the rights of a third party relating to your use of any of the Services.

18.4 To the extent that your access to any of the Services is suspended by Wallet One SA in accordance with the provisions of this User Agreement, you acknowledge that you will forfeit your access to and/or use of those Services. Such suspension will not detract from any liability you have incurred prior to suspension.
18.5 The expiration or termination of this User Agreement shall not affect such of its provisions as expressly provide that they will operate after any such expiration or termination or which of necessity must continue to have effect after such expiration or termination, notwithstanding that the clauses themselves do not expressly provide for this. In particular, but without limiting the generality of the aforegoing, clauses 14.1 to 14.5 will survive any termination of this User Agreement.

22. ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATIONS
22.1 You consent to receiving communications from Wallet One SA electronically and agree that all agreements, notices, disclosures and other communications sent by Wallet One SA by electronic means satisfy any legal requirements, including but not limited to the requirement that such communications should be “in writing”. 22.2 Pursuant to the ECT Act, you acknowledge and agree that in law this User Agreement constitutes a written agreement, which upon your electronic acceptance and submission, will be regarded as signed by you. 22.3 Wallet One SA reserves the right but assumes no obligation to provide communications in paper format.
23.1 Wallet One SA is entitled to assign this User Agreement to any third party without your consent, other than if such assignment would be to your detriment, but you may not cede, assign or otherwise transfer this User Agreement or any of your rights or obligations thereunder to any other person without obtaining Wallet One SA’s prior written consent.

23.3 If a court or similar body decides that any wording in this User Agreement is invalid or unenforceable, that decision will not affect the rest of this User Agreement, which will remain binding on both of us. However, if the wording that is invalid or unenforceable can be made valid and enforceable by deleting part of it, we will both treat the wording as if it is deleted, so that the remainder of the wording in question becomes valid and enforceable.

To the extent that this User Agreement and/or any of the Services are regulated by the CPA, it is not intended that any provision of this User Agreement contravenes any provision of the CPA and therefore all provisions of this User Agreement must be treated as being qualified, if necessary, to ensure that the provisions of the CPA are complied with.
24. REFERRAL REWARDS PROGRAM
Wallet Ons Sa may from time to time offer access to it’s referral rewards program, the terms of which are set out below.
24.1. Eligibility. You are eligible to participate in the Program and earn Referral Rewards (as defined below) if you have accepted our W1 User Agreement and currently maintain an account to use our Wallet One e-Wallet and related services (the “Service”).
24.2. Earning Referral Rewards. Whenever a Qualifying Referral registers for an account to use the Service, we will pay you a one-time referral fee (a “Referral Reward”) if the Qualifying Referral’s account a paid and activated account, all subject to the conditions in this Referral Agreement. In addition, we will (subject to the conditions in this Referral Agreement) pay you a Referral Reward if a Qualifying Referral identifies your mobile phone or email address as his “referred by” mobile phone or email address when he activates his Wallet One Account. The amount of each Referral Reward is calculated in accordance with Section 6 below. A “Qualifying Referral” means an individual that does not currently have, and has never had, an account to use the Service. A “Referral Link” means a hyperlink, in the form as may be provided by Wallet One South Africa, which contains your unique Referral ID created for you by Wallet One South Africa. Referral Links may be in the form of text links, badges or buttons that Wallet One South Africa provides for you to embed on your own Web site(s) or in emails that you send. We will determine, in our sole reasonable discretion, whether a Qualifying Referral has followed your Referral Link or provided your referral mobile number to create its account in accordance with this Section. We track referral information in the Profile page for each registered user. Our reasonable determination is final.
24.3. Restrictions and Limitations. Notwithstanding any provision of this Referral Agreement, we will not be obligated to pay Referral Rewards if: (a) we determine, in our sole reasonable discretion, that referrals are not bona fide transactions, including without limitation for self-referrals; (b) the Qualifying Referral does not maintain its paid account (at the same or higher price tier); (c) you engage in any fraudulent or deceitful behavior in connection with the Program, including without limitation directly or indirectly offering any person a financial incentive to follow a Referral Link or attempting to redirect traffic from, or divert Referral Rewards from, any other participant in the Program.
24.4. Calculation of Referral Rewards. Each one-time Referral Reward is calculated based on the term length (Monthly or Annual) and type of subscription plan for which the Qualifying Referral initially subscribes to a paid Wallet One Subscription. Current Referral Reward amounts, which are subject to change at any time, are R15 for each activated and paid up referral account. You are responsible for any transaction fees imposed by Third Party Service Providers on Referral Rewards you receive from us, and the rates for Referral Rewards described on our Web site do not include any such transaction fees.
24.5. Payment of Referral Rewards. In order to receive Referral Reward payments, you must maintain a valid Wallet One South Africa account. We will pay all Referral Rewards to the Wallet One Account you subscribed under, and you are solely responsible to ensure the accuracy of the account information. We will pay Referral Rewards to your Wallet One account at least every 2 weeks or as may be defined in our sole discretion from the date earned pursuant to this Agreement.

Either party may terminate this Referral Agreement at any time by giving the other party written notice of termination (including via email to you at the email address you used to register for the Service). This Referral Agreement may be terminated separately from the W1 User Agreement; termination of the W1 User Agreement, however, will result in the automatic termination of this Agreement. Upon termination, you will immediately cease all use of Referral Links. Referral Rewards earned but unpaid as of termination will remain payable, unless we terminate this Agreement for your breach of Section 5. Sections 1, 2, 5, 7 (only with respect to amounts accrued but unpaid as of termination), 8, 9 and 10 will survive termination of this Referral Agreement
