In addition, to the extent permitted by applicable law, we are not liable, and you agree not to hold PayWay responsible, for any damages or losses (including, but not limited to, loss of money) resulting directly or indirectly from:
Your use of or your inability to use our services
Delays or disruptions in our services
Limitation of Liability. You agree that the Company’s entire liability, and your exclusive remedy, with respect to any services(s) provided under this Agreement and any breach of this Agreement is solely limited to the balance available after deductions by the payment processor from the amount you paid for such service(s).

No agency, partnership, joint venture, employee-employer, or franchiser-franchisee relationship is intended or created by this User Agreement.
You and PayWay agree that any claim or dispute at law or equity that has arisen or may arise between us relating in any way to or arising out of this user agreement, your use of or access to PayWay's online vending kiosk services, will be resolved in accordance with the provisions set forth in this Legal Disputes Section. Please read this Section carefully. It affects your rights and will have a substantial impact on how claims you and we have against each other are resolved.
A. Applicable Law
You agree that the laws of Uganda, without regard to principles of conflict of laws, will govern the User Agreement and any claim or dispute that has arisen or may arise between you and PayWay, except as otherwise stated in the User Agreement.
B. Agreement to Arbitrate
You and PayWay each agree that any and all disputes or claims that have arisen or may arise between you and Payway relating in any way to or arising out of this User Agreement, your shall be resolved exclusively through final and binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that this does not limit your right to redress in an appropriate court. The Arbitration and Reconciliation Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Agreement to Arbitrate.
Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief
YOU AND PAYWAY AGREE THAT EACH OF US MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR PROCEEDING. UNLESS BOTH YOU AND PAYWAY AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE OR JOIN MORE THAN ONE PERSON'S OR PARTY'S CLAIMS, AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A CONSOLIDATED, REPRESENTATIVE, OR CLASS PROCEEDING. ALSO, THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD RELIEF (INCLUDING MONETARY, INJUNCTIVE, AND DECLARATORY RELIEF) ONLY IN FAVOR OF THE INDIVIDUAL PARTY SEEKING RELIEF AND ONLY TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY TO PROVIDE RELIEF NECESSITATED BY THAT PARTY'S INDIVIDUAL CLAIM(S). ANY RELIEF AWARDED CANNOT AFFECT OTHER PAYWAY USERS.
Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge and court review of an arbitration award is very limited. However, an arbitrator can award the same damages and relief on an individual basis that a court can award to an individual. An arbitrator also must follow the terms of the User Agreement as a court would.
The arbitrator, and not any court shall have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute arising out of or relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this Agreement to Arbitrate, any part of it, or of the User Agreement including, but not limited to, any claim that all or any part of the Agreement to Arbitrate or User Agreement is void or voidable.
The arbitration will be conducted in Kampala, Uganda and the Arbitrator shall be agreed upon by both you and PayWay.
The arbitrator will decide the substance of all claims in accordance with the laws of Uganda, including recognized principles of equity, and will honor all claims of privilege recognized by law. The arbitrator shall not be bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving different Payway users, but is bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving the same PayWay user to the extent required by applicable law. The arbitrator's award shall be final and binding and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.
PayWay may suspend or terminate your use of the website or PayWay web kiosk Service if it believes, in its sole and absolute discretion that you have breached a term of these TOS.
