Terms of Use

Please note! Expedite.com.ng is not an e-commerce site or an online store but a price comparison platform – it is not possible to order any products from Expedite itself. Please contact the relevant shop directly to:

(a) Check your order status

(c) Request further details about a specific offer or service

Scope

These General Terms and Conditions govern the access, browsing and use of the internet platforms run by Expedite (hereinafter also referred to as “website”), as well as the use of any services they provide. These Terms and Conditions may be amended from time to time. Such amendments take effect immediately upon their publication on these website. The currently valid version is the version accessible on the website at the time the internet user makes concrete use of the website and their services. By accessing or using any part of the website or the services they offer, the user agrees to be legally bound by these Terms and Conditions. Otherwise, use of the website and the services they offer is not permitted. Certain services on the website, such as the Price Alert, are additionally governed by their own specific conditions, which are clearly posted in the appropriate places. These specific conditions are valid alongside the General Terms and Conditions and take precedence over them in the case of doubt.

Services of the website

The website are aimed at end consumers (hereinafter also referred to as “customers”) who purchase, apply for or inform themselves (or each other) about products and/or services online via the internet. On the website, customers receive free price overviews and references to the sources of supply of products and services that are offered online by retailers, suppliers and service providers registered with Expedite, as well as third parties (including white label cooperation partners) (hereinafter also referred to as “Online-Shops”).

The information provided on the website does not represent any legally binding offer on the part of Expedite. The information research is widely automated and based to a great extent on information that Expedite receives from the online shops and third parties (e.g., manufacturers and media). Data from the online shops and third parties is repeatedly updated via automatic processes throughout the day. In individual cases, discrepancies may occur, especially in regard to the prices (which also affects the ranking of the offers), the availability and the delivery times of products and services. Due to the sheer quantity of information to be processed, errors cannot entirely be ruled out, especially in cases where the incorrect information can be attributed to the Online-Shops or other third parties. Therefore, Expedite cannot assume any liability for the accuracy or inaccuracy of the information provided. This shall not apply if Expedite is informed about the inaccuracy of the information, through a customer, for instance, and does not correct it or at least take action to have the Online-Shop or third party correct it.

Expedite hereby expressly emphasises that not all online shops and offers existing on the market are taken into account on the website. The available selection remains the sole discretion of Expedite and the Online-Shops. The comparison results serve to provide an overview of the Online-Shops cooperating with Expedite and make no claim to completeness. Expedite reserves the right to remove individual products and services from the website without prior notice to the customers.

Contractual Relationships

Expedite does not become party to any purchase, service or other contract of any nature made in the course of acquiring the products or services represented on the website. Contracts involving the acquisition of products or services represented on the website are concluded exclusively between the customers and the Online-Shops. In the case of such contracts, the respective terms and conditions (including cancellation policies) of the individual Online-Shops apply. When the customer is interested in a product or service, the customer is generally taken via link directly from Expedite’s website to the website of the Online-Shop from which the offer in question originates. Before concluding a contract or a purchase, users themselves are responsible for checking whether the relevant data provided by the respective Online-Shop is accurate and up-to-date. Expedite assumes no liability for whether the products or services, as represented by the respective Online-Shops, can actually be purchased or ordered under the conditions stated by these shops.

All brand names, logos and/or other product designations are registered and protected trademarks or trade names of the respective owners.

User Contributions

The customer can express opinions concerning products and services with text or image contributions (e.g., user reviews, evaluations, accounts of personal experience, news on products) directly on the website and read and follow the contributions and reviews of other customers, as well as test results and price trends. Participation is not legally enforceable and cannot be required or demanded. Expedite reserves the right not to publish customer contributions. Expedite expressly distances itself from third party opinions on the website and is not liable for them.

With the submission of comments and images (e.g., about online shops, products, services, etc.) the user grants Expedite the simple, gratuitous, revocable, spatially and temporally unlimited right to use the submitted text or image and the accompanying rating (including the right to modify this content, as long as the editing and modification of this content remain true to the original spirit of the work, and the right to translate it into other languages). The submitter of the content waives the right to be named or otherwise identified as author. The usage rights hereby granted are restricted in their content and scope to what is necessary for the operation, provision and improvement of services at Expedite.

Indemnification regarding Customer Contributions

The customer will indemnify Expedite against any and all claims by third parties brought against Expedite due to alleged damaged incurred through the publication of the customer’s text or image contributions on the website. The customer will bear the costs of the necessary legal defence (in particular court and attorney fees) that Expedite incurs through a legal assertion of claims. This does not apply when the customer is not liable for the legal violation.

Liability

The following exclusions and limitations apply with regard to Expedite’s liability, notwithstanding other legal claim requirements: Expedite assumes liability if the cause of damage is the result of willful misconduct or gross negligence on the part of Expedite. In the case of simple negligence, Expedite only assumes liability for the breach of significant duties the proper fulfilment of which constitutes a condition sine qua non and on the fulfilment of which the customer regularly relies (so-called cardinal duties). In all other respects, liability for compensation for damage of any kind, regardless of the basis for claim, including liability for violation of mutual confidence in the preparation of contract, are excluded. If Expedite assumes liability for an instance of simple negligence, this liability is limited to damage the occurrence of which could typically be expected due to circumstances known upon conclusion of the contract. The aforementioned exclusions and limitations of liability do not apply in cases of mandatory legal liability, in particular pursuant to the German Product Liability Act, in the event of the assumption of a guarantee, as well as for culpable injury to life, body or health.

The aforementioned exclusion and restrictions of liability also apply to employees, auxiliary persons and other third parties, serving Expedite in the capacity of fulfilment of contract.

Expedite assumes no liability and makes no guarantee as to the type, completeness and quality of the products, services or information from the Online-Shops and/or other third parties, accessible either directly on the website or indirectly, via links for instance. In particular, Expedite assumes no liability and makes no guarantee as to the proper functioning and compatibility of systems, programs, etc., that are not directly part of Expedite’s services and over which, therefore, Expedite has no influence. As such, Expedite cannot assume liability for the accessibility and availability, the graphics, content or other technical design, structure or functionality of the website of the Online-Shops or third parties or for the products, services or information these third-party website offer or do not offer.

Intellectual Property Rights

The website contain data, search results, texts, graphics, software and other information that are protected under intellectual property right provisions, in particular copyright law and trademark law for the benefit of Expedite and its employees. Reproduction, public distribution, modification and other encroachments on these rights, whether entirely or in part, are only permitted with the explicit written permission of Expedite, unless a statutory limit applies. Each unauthorised encroachment represents a violation of these terms and conditions and will be prosecuted. In particular, the automated reading of databases and website (e.g., via scraping) and the integration of the contents of the website in a frame without Expedite’s permission is not permitted. The user is solely permitted to use the application for the individual comparison of offers from Online-Shops for his/her own private needs.

Place of Jurisdiction and Severability Clause

If the customer is a registered merchant or trader, a legal entity under public law or a special fund constituted as a public law entity, the place of jurisdiction for all disputes arising from the contractual relationship between the customer and Expedite is Expedite’s registered office.

If certain provisions of these General Terms and Conditions are or become partially or wholly invalid or ineffective, this shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions. Any unincorporated or ineffective General Terms and Conditions are replaced by statutory law. Furthermore, the parties undertake to replace the invalid or ineffective provision with an effective provision that comes as close as possible to fulfilling the economic intent and purpose of the invalid provision, as far as a supplemental interpretation is not possible or does not take priority.
