11. Do not rely on information on the App and Service

The App allows users who share a group or are friends to post debts and payments as they please. These are calculated into a determination of debts, or relative financial positions with respect to a group’s expenses, by B-Social.

You agree that you understand these debts are not legally binding, and represent informal information sharing. You agree that B-Social cannot guarantee the accuracy of information entered by users. It is not intended to amount to advice on which you should rely. You must obtain professional or specialist advice before taking, or refraining from, any action on the basis of the content on our App.

Although we make reasonable efforts to update the information provided by the App and the Service, we make no representations, warranties or guarantees, whether express or implied, that such information is accurate, complete or up to date.

13. Our responsibility for loss or damage suffered by you

We are responsible to you for foreseeable loss and damage caused by us. If we fail to comply with these Terms, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking these Terms or our failing to use reasonable care and skill, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time you accepted these Terms, both we and you knew it might happen.

We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so. This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors or for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation.

The use of the App and/or its contents is at your own risk. The contents of the App could include technical inaccuracies or typographical errors.

Nothing in these Terms is intended to affect or limit your rights under the law. For more information about your rights contact your local Citizens Advice Bureau or Trading Standards Bureau.

You can terminate these Terms insofar as they are applicable to you for any reason by giving us immediate notice.
