We are providing our services on an “as is” basis without any express or implied warranties. My Social Housing is committed to ensuring that the app is as useful and efficient as possible. For that reason, we reserve the right to make changes to the app or to charge for its services, at any time and for any reason. We will never charge you for the app or its services without making it very clear to you exactly what you’re paying for.

The My Social Housing App stores and processes personal data that you have provided to us so that you can use the app. For more details please refer to our Privacy Policy. It’s your responsibility to keep your phone and access to the app safe and secure.

You must notify us promptly of any unauthorised use or security breach of your account. We therefore recommend that you do not jailbreak or root your phone, which is the process of removing software restrictions and limitations imposed by the official operating system of your device. It could make your phone vulnerable to malware/viruses/malicious
programs, compromise your phone’s security features and it could mean that the My Social Housing app won’t work properly or at all. We make no warranty that the contents of the My Social Housing App are free from infection by viruses or anything else which has contaminating or destructive properties and shall have no liability in respect thereof.

Mobile Networks

You should be aware that there are certain things that My Social Housing App will not take responsibility for. Certain functions of the app will require an active internet connection. The connection can be Wi-Fi, or provided by your mobile network provider, but My Social Housing App cannot take responsibility for the app not working at full functionality if you don’t have access to Wi-Fi, and you don’t have any of your data allowance left.

If you are using the app outside of an area with Wi-Fi, you should remember that your terms of agreement with your mobile network provider will still apply. As a result, you may be charged by your mobile provider for the cost of data for the duration of the connection
while accessing the app, or other third-party charges.

You acknowledge that your agreement with your mobile network provider (“Mobile Provider”) will apply to your use of the App. You acknowledge that you may be charged by the Mobile Provider for data services while using certain features of the App or any such third-party charges as may arise, and you accept responsibility for such charges. If you are not the bill payer for the Device being used to access the App, you will be assumed to have received permission from the bill payer for using the App.

In using the app, you’re accepting responsibility for any such charges, including roaming data charges if you use the app outside of your home territory (i.e. region or country) without turning off data roaming. If you are not the bill payer for the device on which you’re using the app, please be aware that we assume that you have received permission from the
bill payer for using the app.
