Terms & Conditions
Thank you for using KwikBasket! These Terms of Service (“Terms”) govern your use of the KwikBasket services, including KwikBasket’s website, KwikBasket’s mobile applications, and any websites (or portions thereof) or mobile applications that are operated by KwikBasket (collectively, the “Services”), and are entered into by you and Virtual Supermarkets Limited, trading as KwikBasket.
The Services comprise a platform that presents you with a set of one or more retailer virtual storefronts from which you can select goods for picking, packing, and delivery by individual personal shoppers (“Personal Shoppers”) to your location or, if available, for you to pick up in-store. In some cases, picking, packing, or delivery services may be performed by third parties including a retailer or third party logistics provider (collectively, “Third Party Providers”).
Delivery may be conducted by each individual Personal Shopper’s select method of transportation. You acknowledge that transportation or logistics services are provided by third party independent contractors who are not employed by KwikBasket.
When you use the Services to place an order for products, you authorize the purchase and delivery of those products from the retailers you select. Unless otherwise specified, you acknowledge and agree that KwikBasket and the Personal Shopper are acting as your agents in picking, packing, and/or delivery of goods purchased by you and are not the seller of the goods to you. You agree that your purchase is being made from the retailer you have selected, that retailer is the merchant of record, and that title to any goods passes to you when they are purchased at the applicable retailer’s store. You agree that KwikBasket or the applicable retailer will obtain a credit card authorization for your credit card on file with KwikBasket to cover the cost of the goods you have purchased from the retailer and any separate KwikBasket fees, and your card will be charged for the goods purchased by you and any applicable fees. Your card may be temporarily authorized for an amount greater than the total amount of the purchase appearing in the original check out. This higher authorized amount is a temporary authorization charge on your order, to deal with situations where your total purchase amount turns out to be higher than the original amount due to special requests, added items, replacement items or weight adjustments.
You also acknowledge and agree that, except as expressly provided for otherwise in these Terms or a separate agreement between you and KwikBasket, KwikBasket does not form any employment or agency relationship with you and does not hold title to any goods that you order through the Services.
Unless otherwise indicated, all prices and other amounts are in the currency of the jurisdiction where the delivery takes place.
Occasionally there may be information on the Services that contains typographical errors, inaccuracies, or omissions that may relate to pricing, product descriptions, promotions offers, and availability. KwikBasket reserves the right to correct any errors, inaccuracies or omissions and to change or update information or refuse or cancel orders if any information on the sites is inaccurate at any time without prior notice (including after you have submitted your order and/or your credit card has been charged).

LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
This provision applies to the maximum extent permitted by applicable laws.
In no event shall KwikBasket (including its affiliates, and each of their respective officers, directors, employees, agents, shareholders, retail partners, licensors, and suppliers) be liable to you for any incidental, special, punitive, consequential, or indirect damages (including, but not limited to, damages, for deletion, corruption, loss of data, loss of programs, failure to store any information or other content maintained or transmitted by the services, service interruptions, or for the cost of procurement of substitute services) arising out of or in connection with the services, or these terms, however arising including negligence, even if KwikBasket or KwikBasket’s agents or representatives know or have been advised of the possibility of such damages.
In no event shall KwikBasket (including its affiliates, and each of their respective officers, directors, employees, agents, shareholders, retail partners, licensors, and suppliers) be liable for any indirect, special, punitive, incidental, exemplary and/or consequential damages (including, but not limited to physical damages, bodily injury, death and/or emotional distress and discomfort) arising out of your use of the services, any services provided by Personal Shoppers or Third Party providers, or any products requested by you or delivered to you, even if KwikBasket or KwikBasket’s agents or representatives know or have been advised of the possibility of such damages.
KwikBasket, its affiliates, retail partners, licencors, suppliers and distributors will not be liable for aggregate liability for all claims relating to the services, any services provided by Personal Shoppers or Third Party providers, or any products requested by you or delivered to you for more than the greater of KSh 1,000 or the amounts paid by you to KwikBasket for those specific services.
You agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless KwikBasket and its officers, directors, employees, agents, shareholders, affiliates, and retail partners (each, an "Indemnified Party") from and against any losses, claims, actions, costs, damages, penalties, fines and expenses, including without limitation attorneys’ and experts’ fees and expenses, that may be incurred by an Indemnified Party arising out of, relating to or resulting from your unauthorized use of the Services or from any breach by you of these Terms, including without limitation any actual or alleged violation of any law, rule or regulation.
Disputes & Arbitration
If you have a dispute with KwikBasket arising out of your use of the Services, this Section 9 applies. You agree to contact KwikBasket first and attempt to work out any such dispute amicably.
Mandatory Arbitration: If we’re unable to work out a solution amicably, both you and KwikBasket agree to resolve any disputes arising out of your use of the Services or these Terms through binding arbitration.
Class Action Waiver: To the extent permissible by law, all claims must be brought in the parties’ individual capacity, and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class, collective action, or non-PAGA representative proceeding (collectively “Class Action Waiver”). The arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims or engage in any class arbitration. You agree that, by entering into these terms, you and KwikBasket are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action.
In any lawsuit in which (1) the complaint is filed as a class action, collective action or non-PAGA representative action; and (2) the civil court of competent jurisdiction in which the complaint was filed finds the Class Action Waiver is unenforceable (and such finding is confirmed by appellate review if review is sought), the Class Action Waiver shall be severable from this Agreement and in such instances, the class action, collective action and/or non-PAGA representative action must be litigated in a civil court of competent jurisdiction and not as a class, collective or non-PAGA representative arbitration.
PAGA waiver: To the extent permissible by law, there will be no right or authority for any dispute to be brought, heard, or arbitrated on a group basis or in any action in which a party seeks to represent other individual(s) in a private attorney general action (PAGA Waiver). PAGA claims may only be arbitrated on an individual basis.
In any lawsuit in which (1) the complaint is filed as a private attorney general action seeking to represent any individual(s) other than the named plaintiff; and (2) the civil court of competent jurisdiction in which the complaint was filed finds the PAGA Waiver is unenforceable (and such finding is confirmed by appellate review if review is sought), the PAGA Waiver shall be severable from this Agreement and in such instances, the private attorney general action must be litigated in a civil court of competent jurisdiction and not as a private attorney general arbitration.
Notwithstanding any other clause contained in this Agreement, any claim that all or part of the Class Action Waiver or PAGA Waiver is invalid, unenforceable, unconscionable, void or voidable may be determined only by a court of competent jurisdiction and not by an arbitrator. The Class Action Waiver and PAGA Waiver shall be severable when a dispute is filed as an individual action and severance is necessary to ensure that the individual action proceeds in arbitration.
The arbitration will be held in the country where the Services are requested by you.
Arbitration Fees: Payment of all arbitration fees and each party will be responsible for their own fees.
You can stop using the Services at any time and without notice to us. Similarly, KwikBasket may terminate access to the Services to you or any other users or stop offering the all or part of the Services at any time without notice.
To the extent permitted by applicable law, these Terms will be governed by the laws of the Country where the Services are requested or rendered to be provided without respect to its conflicts of laws principles. To the extent permitted by applicable law, any claims arising out of or relating to these Terms or use of the Services that are not subject to Section 9 (Disputes & Arbitration) of these Terms shall be brought exclusively in the Country where the Services are requested or rendered and you and KwikBasket consent to the personal jurisdiction of those courts.
Entire Agreement &Severability
These Terms, subject to any amendments, modifications, or additional agreements you enter into with KwikBasket, shall constitute the entire agreement between you and KwikBasket with respect to the Services and any use of the Services. If any provision of these Terms is found to be invalid by a court competent jurisdiction, that provision only will be limited to the minimum extent necessary and the remaining provisions will remain in full force and effect.
KwikBasket’s failure to monitor or enforce a provision of these Terms does not constitute a waiver of its right to do so in the future with respect to that provision, any other provision, or these Terms as a whole.
You may not assign any of your rights, licenses, or obligations under these Terms. Any such attempt at assignment by you shall be void. KwikBasket may assign its rights, licenses, and obligations under these Terms without limitation.
Changes to the Terms
We may make changes to these Terms from time to time. When KwikBasket does so, KwikBasket will post the most current version of the Terms on KwikBasket’s website and, if a revision to the Terms is material, KwikBasket will notify you of the new Terms (for example, by email or a notification on the Services). Changes to these terms will not apply retroactively. If you do not agree to the modified terms, you should discontinue your use of the Services.
