These Terms are entered into between Whanau Group Pty Ltd ACN 626 515 884 (we, us or our) and you, the person accepting these Terms (you or your), together the Parties and each a Party.

Your acceptance

You accept these Terms by filling in the registration form for access to the App.

These Terms will commence on the date you accept these Terms and will continue until the date these Terms are terminated in accordance with a termination right in these Terms (Term).

When we will start providing our services

We agree to commence the provision of our Services within a reasonable time after (i) the App account is set up; (ii) you accept these Terms; and (iii) you provide the initial information we require from you.

What we will do for you

In consideration of your acceptance of these Terms, we will provide our Services in accordance with these Terms, whether ourselves or through our staff.

We agree to use reasonable efforts to (i) ensure all of our obligations under these Terms, including the performance of our Services, will be carried out by suitably competent and trained staff; and (ii) in an efficient and professional manner.

We believe in confidentiality

Subject to the paragraph directly below, we must keep confidential, and not use or permit any unauthorised use of, any Confidential Information.

The paragraph directly above does not apply where the disclosure is required by law or the disclosure is to a professional adviser in order to obtain advice in relation to matters arising in connection with these Terms and provided that we ensure the adviser complies with the terms of clause.

This clause will survive termination or expiry of these Terms.

Using the App

As part of our Services, we have developed a quality assurance process which requires review of all entries made in the App. While we have put this process in place for your peace of mind, we cannot guarantee that all App entries will be 100% correct. You agree that App entries rely on us being provided with accurate, complete and up-to-date information (by the School, their staff or parents) and being promptly informed of any changes in information. We take all reasonable steps to include correct information in the App entries and we take all reasonable steps to promptly update any App entry found to be irrelevant, inaccurate, incomplete or out of date as soon as we become aware of the issue.

 Our service is a secondary tool provided for your convenience. Before you rely on the information in any entry in the App you must satisfy yourself that the information is accurate, complete and up-to-date and it is solely your responsibility to confirm the information in each App entry.

 If you choose to use the task completion functionality, notice of your completion is stored on your personal device and is not visible to other users of the App and is not provided to us. This means that any reminders or deadlines associated with the task will continue to be visible in the App.

What we need from you

You agree: (i) to provide all assistance, information, documentation, access, facilities, authorities, consents, licences and permissions reasonably necessary to enable us to comply with our obligations under these Terms or any laws; (ii) to only provide access to the App included in our Services to users who are pre-approved by us; (iii) that we may contact you via email and the App to seek your feedback about our App; and (iv) to comply with these Terms, our reasonable requests or requirements, and all applicable laws.

Privacy and storage of your information

We will handle your personal information in accordance with our privacy policy (available on our website and in the App).

Your account information and any other personal information you provide to us is stored securely in our systems and can only be accessed by the necessary staff, or Third Party providers that assist us with providing our Services. We also use password protection, two step verification and SSL encryption to help secure information we hold.

Available features

The School Calendar Assistant App offers limited features and functionality compared to our Family Calendar Assistant App. For example, you cannot edit the calendar events or task entries, you do not have access to a calendar specifically for your child and it is not otherwise personalised for you.

Please contact us if you are interested in a subscription and we can set this up for you. From time to time, we may email you or communicate information to you via the App about the additional features of our Family Calendar Assistant App and with offers to subscribe.
