Welcome to Nioso App!
- General Terms
OR USING NIOSO.
- Use of Application and Services
You have full discretion either to use the Application or other apps, whether to use Services available on Application, or to stop using the Application.
We only facilitate You finding various Services You need by providing Application. All Services are provided directly by independent third parties who agreed to become Our partners (“Service Provider”).
When ordering a Service, the Application will connect You with the available Service Provider around Your location. Thus, some Services cannot be used if You do not activate the location feature.
Furthermore, if the Service Provider accepts Your order, we will inform Your order status through Application.
- Signing-up and Signing-in Nioso Account
After registering, Our system will automatically generate a verification code and send the verification code via a text message to the mobile phone number You provided. You have to verify by entering the verification code on the registration page in the Application.
After verifying, Our system will create a personal Nioso account (“Account”) for You to use the Application and order Services through the Application. Your mobile number is ascribed to Your account that You cannot create a new account with a registered mobile number. The same is true if You later change Your mobile number in the settings feature in the Application.
In the event that you have been logged-out from Your Account, then You need to enter your electronic mail address or mobile phone number you provided when registering Yourself and enter the verification code, which then automatically sent by Our system to Your registered mobile phone number, on the log-in page.
THE VERIFICATION CODE (ONE TIME PASSWORD/OTP) IS PRODUCED AUTOMATICALLY BY OUR SYSTEM. WE DO NOT KNOW AND NEVER ASK FOR YOUR VERIFICATION CODE. NEVER PROVIDE THE VERIFICATION CODE TO ANYONE EVEN TO US OR OTHER PARTIES WHO ACKNOWLEDGE THEMSELVES AS OUR REPRESENTATIVES.
Device Authentication Features
If You are using a device that supports fingerprints and/or facial recognition features, You can enable such device authentication feature for logging in to our Application.
When You are enabling the fingerprints and/or facial recognition features in Your mobile device for authentication purposes in Application, please note that We do not store such biometric data. Unless otherwise notified to You, such data is stored in Your mobile device and may also be stored by third parties, such as Your device’s manufacturer. You agree and acknowledge that we are not responsible for any unauthorized access or loss towards such biometric data which is stored in your mobile device.
If You are changing your mobile device, an OTP will still be required for you to log in to the Application. If You wish to enable the device authentication feature in your new device, you can do so in Your device settings.
- Your Account
Your Account can only be used by You and cannot be transferred to other people for any reason. We reserve the right to refuse to facilitate orders if We know or have sufficient reasons to suspect that You have transferred or allowed Your Account to be used by someone else.
The security and confidentiality of Your Account, including registered name, electronic mail address, registered mobile number, payment details and Payment Method you choose, as well as verification code generated and sent by Our or Payment Method Provider’s system are fully Your personal responsibility. All losses and risks arising from Your negligence in maintaining such security and confidentiality are borne by You. In such cases, We assume any use or order made through Your Account as Your legitimate request.
Immediately notify Us upon knowing or suspecting that Your Account has been used without Your knowledge and consent. We will take actions We consider necessary, and We may do toward that unconsented use.
If You are a Service Provider, You shall not use Your personal Account or someone else’s account to order a service that You will receive Yourself as a Service Provider.
