Availability and using the App

These are the Terms governing access and use of the App and gaining access to the App for its use. You (the “User”) hereby agree to abide by the Terms available on the App. If you do not agree to these Terms, you must immediately discontinue your access or use and uninstall and/or delete the App from your device.

The availability and proper functioning of the App depends on many variable circumstances, including location, mobile network and internet availability and signal strength, and proper functioning of hardware, software, your mobile network operator and mobile device. Access to and downloading of the App is free, except for the cost of connection through the telecommunications network provided by your internet access provider.

The App is available for download from Google Play and iTunes app stores.

Upon downloading the App, we grant you a revocable, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, limited license to use the App on a mobile device you own and control for your personal purposes, subject to these Terms.

You undertake not to use the App for any fraudulent purposes or carry on any conduct that may damage the image, interests and rights of SCB or third parties. You also undertake to use the App, services and contents included therein diligently, correctly and lawfully. In particular, you undertake not to delete, avoid or manipulate the copyright and other data identifying the rights of SCB included in the contents of the App as well as the technical protection devices or any information mechanisms that may include such contents. You also undertake not to take any action to damage, disable or overload the App, or in any way hinder its normal use and operation.

If you fail to comply with these Terms or SCB reasonably suspects that you are failing to comply therewith, SCB reserves the right to limit, suspend or terminate access to the App, adopting any technical measures necessary for that purpose.  SCB also reserves the right to decide, at any time, whether to continue providing you with the Service it provides through the App.

In the event you, the Junior, have attained the legal contracting age of Kenya (18 years), you shall accept and agree to these Terms on your own behalf.

Important notice to parents / legal guardians: These Terms govern the use by both you and your child of the App, including a child for whom you are the legal guardian (henceforth known as a ‘Junior’). By downloading the App and/or creating the respective accounts (i.e. the parent account and the Junior account) for yourself and the Junior, you agree to these Terms on your behalf, as well as on the Junior’s behalf. You represent to us that you are lawfully able to enter these Terms, and that you are the legal guardian of the Junior and you accept and agree to these Terms on their behalf. You further warrant and represent that you will explain these Terms to the Junior and procure that the Junior complies with these Terms and shall indemnify SCB against all losses arising from any breaches of these Terms by the Junior and/or the Junior’s use of the App. Unless otherwise stated, all references henceforth to ‘you’; ‘your’; and ‘yourself’ in these Terms and the Privacy Policy shall mean you and the Junior on whose behalf you are accepting these Terms and the Privacy Policy.

Importance notice to Guardians: You can only be added as a secondary operator by an existing accountholder of SCB who has already downloaded the App. These Terms shall also govern the use by you of the App and you represent to us that you are lawfully able to enter these Terms.
