Abusing AFT Services. Please use the flagging system to tell us about any problems or offensive content so that together we can keep the services site working properly. We may limit or terminate our Services, remove hosted content and take technical and legal steps to keep users off AFT if we think that they are creating problems or acting inconsistently with the letter or spirit of our policies. However, whether we decide to take any of these steps, remove hosted content or keep a user off AFT or not, we do not accept any liability for monitoring AFT or for unauthorized or unlawful content on AFT or use of AFT by users.
Global Marketplace. Some of AFT's features may display your ad on other sites that are part of the AFT community, like AFT social media pages or our classifieds sites in other countries. By using AFT Services, you agree that your ads can be displayed on these other sites. The terms for our other sites are similar to these terms, but you may be subject to additional laws or other restrictions in the countries where your ad is posted.
When you choose to post your ad to another site, you may be responsible for ensuring that it does not violate our other site policies.
We may remove your ad if it is flagged on any of our sites, or if we believe it causes problems or violates any law or policy.
Fees and Services. Using AFT Services is generally FREE. We may charge fees for certain Services. If the service you use charges a fee you will be able to review and accept that charge. Our fees are quoted in Kenya shillings in Kenya (KSH) and in US Dollars (USD) for any other country, and we may change them from time to time. We will notify you of changes to our fee policy by posting such changes on the site. We may choose to temporarily change our fees for promotional events or new services; these changes are effective when we announce the promotional event or new service. Our fees are not refundable, and you are responsible for paying them when they're due. If you don't, we may limit your ability to use the Services.
Kenyan taxes associated with our Services will be collected when applicable. You agree to provide accurate address information necessary for AFT to comply with its obligations under applicable law. To the extent that such information is not provided, AFT will in its discretion determine and collect appropriate taxes.
You are solely responsible to collect and remit any applicable taxes resulting from the sale of your items or services listed on AFT.
Content. AFT Services contains stuff from us, you, and other users. You agree not to copy, modify, or distribute AFT Services, our copyrights or trademarks. When you give us content, you are granting us a non-exclusive, worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, royalty-free, sub-licensable right to exercise the copyright, publicity, and database rights to that content. If you believe that your rights have been violated, please notify us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will investigate the matter. We reserve the right to remove content where we have grounds for suspecting the violation of these terms or the rights of any other party.
Intellectual Property Infringements. Do not post content that infringes the rights of third parties. This includes, but is not limited to; content that infringes on intellectual property rights such as copyright and trademark. We reserve the right to remove content where we have grounds for suspecting the violation of these terms, our policies or of any party's rights. If you believe that a listing on any of the AFT Services infringes your copyright, trademark, or other intellectual property rights, notify us at email@example.com
Disclaimers and limitations of Liability. AFT Services are provided “as is” and “as available”. You agree not to hold us responsible for things other users post or do. You also agree not to hold us responsible for the payment processing of other service providers such as Mpesa or PayPal (each a “Third Party Payment Processor”. For greater certainty, as applicable, if you link a Third Party Payment Processor account to your AFT Account, you acknowledge and agree that by making payments through AFT with that Third Party Payment Processor, you are bound by that Third Party Payment Processor’s applicable terms and conditions, and we are not liable for any loss, claims or damages howsoever arising in connection with that third party's services). As most of the stuff on the AFT Services comes from other users, we do not guarantee the accuracy, completeness, efficacy or timeliness of any postings or user communications or the quality, safety, or legality of what is offered. We also cannot guarantee continuous or secure access to our services. Notification functionality in our Services may not occur in real time. Such functionality is subject to delays beyond our control, including without limitation, delays or latency due to your physical location or your wireless data service provider’s network. Accordingly, to the extent legally permitted we expressly disclaim all warranties, representations, and conditions, express or implied, including those of quality, merchantability, merchantable quality, durability, fitness for a particular purpose and those arising by statute. We are not liable for any loss, whether of money (including profit), goodwill, or reputation, or any special, indirect, or consequential damages arising out of your use of AFT, even if you advise us or we could reasonably foresee the possibility of any such damage occurring. Some jurisdictions do not allow the disclaimer of warranties or exclusion of damages, so such disclaimers and exclusions may not apply to you.
Despite the previous paragraph, if we are found to be liable, our liability to you or any third party (whether in contract, tort, negligence, strict liability in tort, by statute or otherwise) is limited to the lesser of (a) the total fees you pay to us in the 3 months prior to the action giving rise to liability, and (b) 100 USD.
Indemnification. You will indemnify and hold harmless AFT and its affiliates and our and their respective officers, directors, agents and employees (each an “Indemnified Party”), from any claim made by any third party, together with any amounts payable to the third party whether in settlement or as may otherwise be awarded, and reasonable legal costs incurred by any of the Indemnified Parties, arising from or relating to your use of the AFT Services, any alleged violation by you of the applicable terms, and any alleged violation by you of any applicable law or regulation. We reserve the right, at our own expense, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter subject to indemnification by you, but doing so will not excuse your indemnity obligations.
General. These terms and the other policies posted on AFT Services constitute the entire agreement between us and you, superseding any prior agreements. This agreement is governed by the laws of Kenya. We both submit to the jurisdiction of the courts of Kenya. This will not affect your statutory rights if you are a consumer and applicable consumer law requires the application of another law for certain topics. If we don't enforce any particular provision, we are not waiving our right to do so later. If a court strikes down any of these terms, the remaining terms will survive. We may automatically assign this agreement in our sole discretion in accordance with the notice provision below (our assignment to an affiliate will not require notice). Except for notices relating to illegal or infringing content, your notices to us must be sent by registered mail to:
Ask For Transport.
P. O. Box 29838-00202
