Terms of Service

Last Updated:

This is a contract. These Terms constitute a contract between you and Fortis Mobile. If you do not accept these Terms, please do not use the Service. By using any part of the Service, you accept these Terms. If you are under eighteen (18) years of age, you may not use the Service.

You must register an account with valid information. To use the Service, you must: (a) provide a valid mobile phone number; (b) agree that an account associated with such number be created; (c) accept the current Terms; and (d) agree to submit such offer (and additional)
information as Fortis Mobile may request in line with regulatory/legal provisions. You agree to provide true, accurate and complete information about yourself as requested by Fortis Mobile during and after the account registration process.  You will be availed the option
of receiving a unique PIN for purposes of reusing your account. You will be responsible for keeping your PIN safe and secure at all times, without any reservation.  For the avoidance of doubt, Fortis Mobile will not be responsible when/where you compromise your details by disclosing it to third parties.

Third party merchants offer the goods and services. The Service provides an opportunity to discover offers from independent third party merchants (“Merchants”). These Merchants sell their respective Products subject to their own terms and conditions. To illustrate:


Airtime: If you choose to purchase pre-paid airtime, you do so pursuant to the relevant terms and conditions of your mobile telecommunications provider.


Utilities: If you choose to purchase pre-paid electricity or water, you do so pursuant to the relevant terms and conditions of the utility provider.

If you decide to purchase products such as these from third party Merchants, you do so at your own risk and subject to the relevant Merchant’s terms and conditions. We are unable to investigate, monitor, or check the products for accuracy, reliability, appropriateness or completeness. By granting you access to discover the Products via the Service, Fortis Mobile does not imply approval or endorsement of such Products. You therefor agree that Fortis Mobile is not responsible for liable for the Products you purchase from Merchants.

 

 Payments are processed by third parties. In order to facilitate your purchases from Merchants, Fortis Mobile has integrated its Service with the billing solutions of certain mobile money providers and credit card issuing banks (“Payment Processors”). When you purchase a Product from a Merchant using your supported mobile money wallet or account or debit/credit card, payments will be processed by such Payment Processors. Payment Processors have their own terms and conditions governing your use of their payment services. You understand and agree that Fortis Mobile does not process payments and is not responsible or liable for any transactions in which you engage. By engaging in a purchase transaction using your mobile money account or debit/credit card, you authorize the Merchant (or Fortis Mobile on its behalf) to bill your account or card for the purchase amount.

The Privacy Policy addresses only the information collected by Fortis Mobile in providing the Service to you. Merchants and Payment Processors have their own information-gathering practices which apply when you choose to purchase their Products.

Product inquiries should be submitted to the relevant Merchant.

Each Merchant maintains its own customer contact desk for handling such requests, however Fortis Mobile will do its best to assist you.

Service, you may contact us by email at [email protected].
