These terms and conditions (“the Terms”) govern our respective rights and obligations when you use Online Banking and come into effect when you register for Online Banking or once you access Online Banking, whichever occurs first.
By making use of Online Banking, you admit that you have read, understood and agreed to these terms and conditions, and that you have consented to us sharing your personal information within the Sacco in the ordinary course of our business of providing the Services to you.
AMENDMENTS TO THESE TERMS
We may amend these Terms from time to time. If you use Online Banking after we have posted an amended version of these Terms on the website, we will be entitled to assume that you have agreed to be bound to the amended version of the Agreement.
For security, identification and verification purposes, when using Online Banking, you will make use of a variety of access codes for different purposes, such as your access number, Personal Identification Number (“PIN”), card number, account number, User ID and Password. These are all called your “access codes”.
You must take care to keep your access codes secret. Do not disclose your access codes to any other person and do not keep together with other Online Banking documents. If you call the Online Banking helpline, we may ask you for certain information such as your account or card number. However, there will never be a reason for anybody, including our staff, to know your Password or PIN.
If you believe your access codes have been compromised, you must immediately contact the Online Banking helpline on +254746668190/ email@example.com and request that they deactivate your access codes or you can reset your access codes on the website with your Sacco card and PIN.
Until you notify us to deactivate your access codes we will not be responsible for any transactions that are performed without your knowledge or consent or any loss you suffer as a result.
We are committed to ensuring the security of your use of Online Banking and are entitled to investigate any loss suffered by you which is alleged to have occurred as a result of fraud via the website.
Where you have been a victim of an Online Banking fraud, you must inform us immediately.
We will investigate all reported cases of Online Banking frauds and provide feedback on the action to be taken provided that you have complied with the safety measures listed in the Security Policy.
LOGIN TO ONLINE BANKING
Before you can use Online Banking, you must first have a User ID and PIN. Once you have these and your User ID has been activated, login through our mobile App or USSD. For more information call the Online Banking helpline on +firstname.lastname@example.org
Because we communicate through our mobile App and USSD code, you agree that we are entitled to assume that you have authorized all transactions once your access codes have been entered. This will not apply if you have notified us to disable access to your accounts because your access codes have been misplaced, lost or stolen you report to email@example.com. Our records of your transactions will be proof of any instruction you have given us, unless you can prove to the contrary.
You are responsible for giving correct information and instructions when registering for Online Banking and when conducting transactions via mobile App and USSD.
We will try to assist if you make a mistake when giving us an instruction, but we will not be responsible for any loss or damage caused by your error. We will also not be liable for payments made by you to unintended recipients due to the input of incorrect information, nor are we responsible for the verification of the identity of recipients. We cannot reverse duplicate or erroneous payments you make to other accounts without the specific consent of the account holder. Our role is simply to pass your instructions on to where the account is held and we will not be liable for any act or omission on the part of the other party.
Certain transactions may not be terminated, such as the purchase of pre-paid products made available via Online Banking. All transactions will be subject to the same turnaround times that apply to the same accounts and Member profile, if done at Wakenya Pamoja Sacco Branch.
An instruction will only be deemed to have been received by us once we have confirmed receipt. If you are unsure as to whether a transaction has been processed, you should contact us before you re-submit the instruction. This is because re-submitting an instruction may cause us to process the same transaction twice, for which we will not be liable.
ENDING YOUR USE OF ONLINE BANKING
We may end your use of Online Banking at any time, for any reason whatsoever, on reasonable notice to you. Such termination will not affect instructions given to us and not yet carried out.
We will, however, terminate your use of Online Banking immediately and without any notice to you if:
- We believe that your behaviour was inappropriate or constituted misconduct.
- You breached these Terms.
- A fraudulent transaction was conducted directly or indirectly by you.
In the event of us terminated your access to Online Banking, we will not be liable for any damages, of any nature, suffered by you or a third party.
You may however, terminate your use of Online Banking by contacting the Online Banking helpline on +firstname.lastname@example.org
If you call our helpline you permit us to record your calls for security reasons, Member care and to comply with various laws.
