4. Use of the App
4.1 Learning content and method
The App is an educational service intended as a supplement to traditional school lessons. Its content is professionally designed to cover the entire curriculum for each subject in its particular year. The App uses a pedagogy which explains every concept, lets you test your understanding and practice, and encourages you to apply the learnings in related games. It provides the facility for taking notes and referencing additional learning materials. The App also tracks your performance at every stage and updates your scores. Points are awarded for engagement and efficiency as well as for correctness and game success.
We do our professional best to ensure that all information provided within the App is accurate and reliable; however we cannot guarantee that all information is accurate.
The contents of the App or Services are developed on the concepts covered in the structured curriculum syllabus prescribed for students of various courses. The usage of the App or Services is not a substitution for the education provided by your school. Angaza acknowledges that there are various means of delivering structured curricula and inclusion of a pedagogical approach in the App or Services does not imply endorsement of any particular method nor exclusion imply disapproval. Use of the App or Services does not in any manner guarantee admission to any educational institution or passing of any exams or achievement of any specified percentage of marks in any examinations.
The App and Services are compatible only with certain devices and/or operating systems or operating system versions. Angaza shall not be obligated to provide workable Apps or Services for any devices or operating systems or versions thereof which are not compatible with Angaza’s App and Services.

5. Registration and enrollment
In order to use the free first Lesson of the App or Services you must register and open a user account. You can do this by providing the required information in the registration section of the App.
In order to access the full curriculum beyond the free first Lesson, you must make an in-app purchase via the Play Store or relevant app store and then complete the enrollment process.
There is a 2-step verification process to prevent misuse. If you have registered or enrolled using your phone number you will receive an SMS with a One Time Pin (OTP) which is a verification code which you must enter in the appropriate place in the App to complete registration or enrollment.
You represent and warrant that the registration or enrollment and related information you provide is accurate and will be kept up-to-date.
You are responsible for safeguarding your password. You agree that you will not disclose your password to any third party.
When registering or enrolling via the App, the formation of the user contract depends on the rules of the app store supplier. The contract is generally formed when you click on the “Install” or “purchase” field in the relevant app store and, where necessary, enter your password for the app store in question. Please note that in order to use the App it is still necessary to open a user account (register or enroll) with us that is unrelated to the respective app store.
The user contract concluded between you and us is valid for an indefinite period.

We reserve the right to assert claims for damages and other claims.
9. Ending the Contract
9.1 User contract
Your access to the App is time limited. Typically you have 18 months of access from the date you first enroll. Please note that after your access expires we will or may delete all the content that you added and you will no longer have access to App content or functions. If at any time you abandon your account or choose to no longer use it before the expiration date, any sum that you have already paid will not be refunded, not even on a pro rata basis.
We are entitled to cancel the user contract without stating any reasons by giving two (2) weeks’ written notice by email.
9.2 Cancellation for good cause
The right to cancel for good cause remains unaffected in the case of either party. In particular we are entitled to cancel your user contract with immediate effect, if you seriously or repeatedly breach the provisions of the user contract and/or these Terms, or if you are in arrears with your payment obligations.
10. Personal Data
The Services may from time to time include commercial information or advertisements (“Ads”). While we will make best efforts to block Ads from providers who are inappropriate for the typical school-going user of the App, the source of such Ads is third parties, and as such, we cannot and do not guarantee the appropriateness of all Ads, nor their reliability or accuracy. We do not endorse the content of third party Ads, and make no representation about the quality of any goods or services advertised on over the Services.
12. Changes to these Terms

We will also advise you of your right to object, the deadline to do so and the legal consequences of your objection or failure to object. If you do not object to the validity of the new Terms within one month of their entry into force and continue to use the App, then the new Terms will be deemed to have been accepted. In the event that you do object, we expressly reserve our right of ordinary cancellation under clause 9.1.
13. Final Provisions
13.1 Applicable law
The relationship between the parties is governed exclusively by the laws of the Republic of Mauritius. However, you may retain certain statutory rights under local law.
13.2 Severability clause
