TERMS OF SERVICE
Last updated: April 16, 2019
Thank you for using Edwa! These Terms of Service (“Terms”) govern your use of the Edwa services, including Edwa’s website, Edwa’s mobile applications, and any websites (or portions thereof) or mobile applications that are operated by Edwa (collectively, the “Services”), and are entered into by you and Edwa Global a limited liability company.
SECTION 11 (“DISPUTES & ARBITRATION”) OF THESE TERMS PROVIDE THAT ANY CLAIMS THAT YOU AND EDWA HAVE AGAINST EACH OTHER, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY CLAIMS THAT AROSE OR WERE ASSERTED BEFORE THE EFFECTIVE DATE OF THESE TERMS, WILL, WITH LIMITED EXCEPTIONS, BE SUBMITTED TO BINDING AND FINAL ARBITRATION. UNLESS YOU OPT OUT OF THE ARBITRATION AGREEMENT YOU WILL ONLY BE PERMITTED TO PURSUE CLAIMS AND SEEK RELIEF AGAINST EDWA ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS, NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR PROCEEDING. YOU ALSO WAIVE YOUR RIGHT TO SEEK RELIEF IN A COURT OF LAW AND TO HAVE A JURY TRIAL ON YOUR CLAIMS. PLEASE SEE SECTION 11 FOR MORE INFORMATION REGARDING THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT, THE POSSIBLE EFFECTS OF THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT, AND HOW TO OPT OUT OF THE ARBITRATION AGREEMENT.
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 agents (managed by or in partnership with Edwa) to your location or, if available, for you to pick up at a designated Edwa retail stand. 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 agent’s select method of transportation. You acknowledge that transportation or logistics services may be provided by third party independent contractors who are not employed by Edwa, in situations left to the discretion of Edwa.
When you use the Services to place an order for products, you authorize the purchase and delivery of those products from the retailers we partner. Unless otherwise specified, you acknowledge and agree that Edwa and the third parties are acting as your agents in the picking, packing, and/or delivery of goods purchased by you and are not the seller of the goods to you. You agree that Edwa or the applicable retailer will obtain a credit card authorization for your credit card on file with Edwa, or other electronic and physical payment means to cover the cost of the goods you have purchased from the retailer and any separate Edwa fees, and your card will be charged for the goods purchased by you and any applicable fees, taxes and/or tips. Your card or other electronic or physical payment means 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 will be disclosed during the purchase process and 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 Edwa, Edwa 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 and offers, and availability. Edwa 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 Services is inaccurate at any time without prior notice (including after you have submitted your order and/or your credit card has been charged). Please note that prices of products on the Services may be different than prices offered for the same products in-store by the same retailer.
- Your Use of the Services
Edwa grants you a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, and revocable license to use the Services for their intended purposes subject to your compliance with these Terms and Edwa`s policies. You may not copy, modify, distribute, sell, or lease any part of the Services. Unless such restriction is prohibited by law or you have Edwa`s written permission, you may not reverse engineer or attempt to extract the source code of the Services. You may only access the Services through the interfaces that Edwa provides for that purpose (for example, you may not “scrape” the Services through automated means or “frame” any part of the Services, you may not through any means tamper with the security of the Services), and you may not interfere or attempt to disrupt the Services.
Some parts of the Services may allow you to upload or submit content (such as text, images, video, recipes, lists, links, and other materials). You retain all rights in any content that you upload or submit, and are solely responsible for that content. You grant Edwa a non-exclusive, royalty-free, worldwide, transferable, sub-licensable license to use, store, publicly display, publicly perform, reproduce, modify, create derivative works from, and distribute any such content for the purposes of operating, providing, and improving the Services. Edwa may, in its sole discretion, remove or take down any content that you upload or submit to the Services for any reason, including violation of these Terms or any other policies.
You may have the option of accessing the Services through downloadable software and this software may update itself automatically on your device. Some software, or portions of software, in the Services may be governed by open source licenses. In that case, Edwa will make such licenses available to you and, in the case of conflict between such a license and these Terms, the open source license will control but only with respect to the software, or portion of the software, to which it applies.
If you are using Edwa on behalf of a business or other entity, you represent and warrant that you have the necessary authority to bind that business or entity to these Terms and that you are agreeing to these Terms on behalf of that business or entity.
In order to use the Services, you may need to create a user account. You agree that you are responsible for all conduct and transactions that take place on or using your account and that you will take precautions to keep your password and other account information secure. You also agree that you will comply with all applicable laws when accessing or using the Services and you will respect those who you encounter in your use of the Services, including agents and individuals who support Edwa`s Help Centre. Edwa reserves the right to decline orders, refuse partial or full delivery, terminate accounts, and/or cancel orders at any time in its sole discretion.
We are constantly modifying and improving the Services. Edwa may introduce new features, change existing features, or remove features from the Services at any time and without notice. If you provide Edwa with any feedback on or comments regarding the Services, you grant Edwa the right to use such feedback or comments for any purpose without restriction or payment to you.
If you have any requests for order cancellations, refunds, or returns, please visit your account to initiate such requests or review our Help Centre articles for our policies regarding the same.
- Edwa Communications
By creating an Edwa user account, you agree to accept and receive communications from Edwa or its partners, including via email, text message, calls, and push notifications to the cellular telephone number you provided to Edwa. You understand and agree that you may receive communications generated by automatic telephone dialling systems and/or which will deliver pre-recorded messages sent by or on behalf of Edwa, its affiliated companies and/or agents, including but not limited to communications concerning orders placed through your account on the Services. Message and data rates may apply. If you do not wish to receive promotional emails, text messages, or other communications, you may opt out of such communications at any time in Your Account Settings.
If you use the Services to order a prescription drug product (where available), you understand and agree that customer inquiries may be conducted via telephone. You also understand and agree that a third-party pharmacy and/or Edwa may send you unencrypted SMS messages, push notifications or other electronic notifications relating to prescription drug products that you order through the Services. There is some level of risk that information in such communications could be read by an unintended third party. By using the Services to order a prescription drug product, you explicitly disclaim any liability against Edwa for any harm or damage arising out of or in connection with any SMS messages, push notifications and/or other electronic notifications.
- Edwa Coupons
Edwa Coupons are manufacturer’s coupons that are automatically applied to qualifying products upon purchase to help users save money on the products they love. Coupons are available for a limited time only and may be subject to certain restrictions. Coupons are subject to change, cancellation, or expiration at any time. If you do not purchase the qualifying items added to your cart while the Coupon is still in effect, the Coupon’s offer will not apply. Coupons apply only to qualifying items displaying the offer and may not be combined with other promotional offers or mail-in rebates. Coupons are issued and paid by the manufacturer of the advertised product. The user is required to pay any applicable sales tax related to use of the Coupon; you acknowledge that Edwa has no obligation for payment of any tax in conjunction with the distribution or use of such Coupons. When Coupons are redeemed, sales tax may be charged on the undiscounted original price of the product(s). Coupons may not be sold, copied, modified, or transferred. A Coupon has no cash value. Coupons are good while supplies last. Void where restricted or prohibited by law.
- Transactions involving Alcohol
You may have the option to order delivery of alcohol products in some locations and from certain retailers. You agree that you will comply with all applicable laws and not cause Edwa, any third-party acting on behalf of Edwa, or any retailer to contravene any applicable laws. You agree that you are of legal drinking age for purchasing, possessing, and consuming alcohol (i.e., 18 years of age or older in Ghana). If you order alcohol products, you understand and acknowledge that neither Edwa nor an Edwa agent can accept your order of alcohol products, and the order will only be delivered if the retailer accepts your order. You agree that, upon delivery of alcohol products, the recipient will provide valid government-issued identification proving their age to the agent delivering the alcohol products, that the recipient will not be intoxicated when receiving delivery of such products, and that alcohol has not been purchased with the intent to resell the alcohol or provide the alcohol to someone who is not of legal drinking age. You agree that if any applicable legal requirements for the delivery of alcohol are not met, Edwa reserves the right to cancel the alcohol-related portion of your order. Special requests or substitutions for the purchase of alcohol products will not be honoured; all requests for the purchase of alcohol products must be made through the catalogue available through the Services at the time of submitting the order.
- Third-party Products and Content
You agree that Edwa does not assume responsibility for any products, content, services, websites, advertisements, offers, or information that is provided by third parties and made available through the Services. If you purchase, use, or access any such products, content, services, advertisements, offers, or information through the Services, you agree that you do so at your own risk and that Edwa will have no liability based on such purchase, use, or access.

Edwa`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. Edwa 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 Edwa does so, Edwa will post the most current version of the Terms on Edwa`s website and, if a revision to the Terms is material, Edwa 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.
