1. Introduction

Welcome to Otimo!

This page tells you the terms on which you may use our mobile application, Otimo (throughout these terms, known as the “App”), as a registered affiliate. Please read carefully before use.

By applying to become an affiliate, you accept the terms and agree to obey them. If you don’t accept them, please don’t use the App.

We may update these terms from time to time, so please check back regularly as any updates will apply to your use of the App. Please note that the app store from which you downloaded the App (e.g. Apple App Store or Google Play) will also have terms and conditions, and will apply to your use of the App.

Otimo is an app which helps learners monitor their experience during driving lessons.

2. Who We Are

Otimo is operated by Otimo Partnerships Ltd, a limited company registered in England and Wales under company number 11113112. Our registered office is at Hollingwood Business Centre, ℅ Mj Goldman, Albert Street, Oldham, England OL8 3QL.

3. Registering for Otimo as an Affiliate

When you register for Otimo as an affiliate, you wish to recommend the App to your customers or potential customers.

When you sign up, you will receive a referral code. When a learner signs up to the App, and uses your referral code, you are entitled to £10 in respect of that learner. We will send you the amount of commission earned by you at the end of the month. This will be sent to you by bank transfer, to the bank details provided by you when you registered as an affiliate. There is no limit on the number of learners you may refer.

If you have a query about commission earned, please contact us at gavin@weareotomo.com. In the event of a dispute as to the amount of commission earned, our determination will be final.

You must comply with these terms to receive commission, and you must promptly provide us with information we may request from time to time to verify your compliance with these terms. Failure to comply will result in you not receiving commission.

We reserve the right to reject any learner from using the App for any reason, or suspend their access to the App.

4. Use of the App

You have permission for temporary use of the App, but we can withdraw or change our service at any time without telling you and without being legally responsible to you.

Please note that, when the App is running (i.e. monitoring your driving lesson), you cannot use your device in any circumstances. You should activate the App before the lesson commences, and only end the monitoring undertaken by the App once the car has stopped and the engine is switched off.

You must treat all identification codes, passwords and other security information as confidential. If we think you have failed to keep confidentiality, we are allowed to disable any security information (including your passwords and codes).

If you allow anyone else to use the App, you must make sure that they read these terms first, and that they follow them. If you download the App onto someone else’s device, it is your responsibility to ensure you have that person’s permission.

Only use the App as allowed by law and these terms. If you don’t, we may suspend your usage, or stop it completely.

We frequently update the App and make changes to it, but we don’t have to do this, and material on the App may be out-of-date. No material on the App is intended to contain advice, and you shouldn’t rely on it. We exclude all legal responsibility and costs for reliance placed on the App by anyone.

When we roll out updates for the App, these will be to improve functionality and performance of the App, address security issues or reflect changes to the operating system. If you do not update the App when requested, it may no longer run as expected.

If you have any issues using the App, please contact us at gavin@weareotomo.com

If we need to contact you about anything, we will do so by using the email address associated with your account, or we may communicate with you through the App.

You are allowed to stream or download one copy of the App onto your personal device, for personal purposes only. Please note that each subscription allows access for one person to use the App. You must not share your login details with any other person.

We don’t exclude legal responsibility for death or personal injury owing to our negligence, or legal responsibility for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation, or for anything else where exclusion is not allowed by the law.

You are responsible for your acts and omissions as an instructor, and we take no responsibility in this regard. Our total liability to you under these terms is limited to £1,000.

8. Uploading to the App

If you upload material to the App and we do not deem your usage to be acceptable, we can remove the content and end your use of the App.

Material that you upload will be regarded as non-confidential and not owned. This means that we can copy it, distribute it, and show it to other people for any purpose. You agree that if anyone else claims to own the material, or says that it breaches their rights, we can give them your identity.

We won’t be legally responsible to anybody for the accuracy of material that you upload to the App, and we can remove it at any time.

9. Computer Offences

If you do anything which is a criminal offence under the Computer Misuse Act 1990, your right to use the App will end straight away. We will report you to the relevant authorities and give them your identity.

Examples of computer misuse include introducing viruses, worms, Trojans and other technologically harmful or damaging material.

You must not try to get access to the App or server or any connected database or make any ‘attack’ on the App. We won’t be legally responsible to you for any damage from viruses or other harmful material that you pick up via the App.

10. Links to the App

You are allowed to make a legal link to the App from your website. We can end this permission at any time.
