Effective date: 1st March 2019
Good day, and thank you for visiting us at www.garibara.com , a website operated by Garibara.. We are pleased to meet you. Before we talk about the serious legal stuff – the kind that makes people sound like robots regurgitating dangerous sounding words like breach, damages, actus reus, ignorantia legis neminem excusat, et cetera et cetera (et cetera is not part of them), kindly allow us to introduce ourselves.
We are Garibara. Our mission is to help people enjoy owning and driving a car. “Hey hey hey, wait a second team garibara, whatever that means! Who told you I do not enjoy owning and driving my lovely car?” These may be some of your thoughts. We understand. Breathe easy our dear friend. Drink some water and allow us to explain. Thank you for your patience.
You see, owning a car comes with its own responsibilities – road tax (if you are a law abiding citizen), fitness (if you are like us who drive cars that are older than five years), insurance (if you are aware that eventualities happen), servicing (if you like keeping your car in good driving condition), fuel (if you are like us that have not yet driven an electric car), and so on and so forth. When someone has a hectic schedule and is working hard to improve their lives, they might not have time to do some of these (necessary) things. They only want to get in the car, start the engine and drive to the next destination. We are here for such people.
We manage all motor vehicle registration and licencing requirements so that you can focus on things that matter to you. That is why we created this little website so that we can use the magical power of the internet to be of service to you.
Things happen quickly, both inside and outside of Garibara, so we will sometimes review these Terms to make sure they accurately reflect developments in current law and our business operations. We reserve the right to update and revise these Terms at any time upon 7 days’ notice. We will provide notice by changing the “Effective Date” at the top of this page so you can tell if these Terms have changed since your last visit. Please review these Terms regularly because 7 days after we post any changes, your continued use of the Services constitutes your acceptance of the revised Terms.
We only permit individuals who are at least 18 years old and can form legally binding contracts to use the Services. However, even non-adults deserve fantastic driving experience. You can use the Services if you are under 18, but only if a parent or legal guardian who is at least 18 years old supervises you. In all cases, the adult will be the user and is responsible for any and all activity.
The information you share with us is used strictly to help us work for you more effectively and efficiently. We do not share your information with third parties.
5. Your Account
You may be able to navigate some of the Services without creating a user account (”Account”); but certain Services (like sending requests to us or registering a car) will require you to create an Account. If you create an Account, you are solely responsible for any activity that occurs through your Account or through your personal device in connection with the Services. Similarly, for any Services that you are able to access without creating an Account, you are solely responsible for any activity that occurs through your personal device in connection with the Services. In order for us to provide you the best possible service, you agree to provide us with complete, accurate, and updated information for your Account at all times. If any information is incorrect or outdated, it can lead to errors or delays, for which we will not be responsible.
6. Applicable Law
If you have any bone to chew with us, please invite us to the breakfast table and give us the opportunity to resolve the issues. We request that you and us should use our best efforts to negotiate in good faith and settle any dispute that may arise out of or relate to this Agreement or any breach of it. If we fail to settle the dispute amicably, we suggest involving an accredited arbitrator before any legal proceedings can commence. We ask for this for two reasons: a) we are very committed to resolving any issues you have against us; and b) we wish to spend our productive time building solutions that will help our customers
For all legal proceedings, the laws of the great nation of the Republic of Zambia will apply.
7. Intellectual Property
Imitation may be the sincerest form of flattery, but that doesn’t mean you can take any of our intellectual property. All of the content that appears on the Services, including all designs, illustrations, icons, photographs, video clips and written materials, as well as the compilation of the website, Services, and other materials, are the exclusive property of Garibara. If you genuinely appreciate what we do, please get in touch with us and ask for our permission to use something that belongs to us. As long as your request is morally upright, legal, and ethical, we will endeavour to support you.
8. Right to Use the Services
After all of the restrictions above, we don’t want it to sound like you can’t even use the Services, so we’ll give you permission right here: subject to your complete and ongoing compliance with these Terms, you have the right to access and use the Services solely for your personal, non-commercial use. This right will allow you to use and enjoy the benefit of the Services as we provide them, in the manner we permit through these Terms. We don’t think you would need to do much else.
One last thing before you go. We kindly request you to be a good person as you interact with us and other people via this website. Be respectful and considerate. Aim to do good. Should you require further details about these terms, please contact us using the contact details on our website.
Enjoy our services.
