  1. INTRODUCTION
    1. When you access the website at .thesocialcollective.co (or any through any other domain used to access our services) or use our mobile application (collectively, the "Platform") or use any of the features and functionalities available through the Platform, you enter into an agreement with The Social Collective Proprietary Limited (Registration No. 2015/160496/07) ("we", "us", "our", "Social Collective") on the terms and conditions set out in these Terms of Use and our Privacy Policy, which can be found addhope.thesocialcollective.co/privacy (collectively the "Terms"), together with any applicable services agreement in place between you, or a third party, as licensee of Social Collective software services ("License Agreement").
    2. The provisions of these Terms contain assumptions of risk and/or liability by you and limit and exclude liabilities, obligations and legal responsibilities, which we may have towards you. These Terms also limit and exclude your rights and remedies against us and place certain liabilities and obligations on you.
    3. To the extent that the Services are governed by the Consumer Protection Act 68 of 2008 as read with any of its Regulations ("the CPA"), no provision in these Terms is intended to contravene the applicable provisions of the CPA, and therefore all provisions of these Terms must be treated as being qualified, to the extent necessary, to ensure compliance with the applicable provisions of the CPA.
  2. WHAT IS THE SOCIAL COLLECTIVE?

    The Social Collective offers cloud and mobile based software to facilitate the collection, storage, management and reporting on social impact data (the "Services").
