Use of Our APP.
GhanaPostGPS is Ghana’s official digital property addressing system which ensures that all locations in the country are addressed. With GhanaPostGPS, every location has a unique digital address. The digital address is a composite of the postcode (region, district & area code) plus a unique address. GhanaPostGPS translates your GPS location to a user friendly digital address. With GhanaPostGPS, users can now precisely pinpoint any location in Ghana using the digital address of the place. GhanaPostGPS is integrated with Google maps to allow for easy navigation of a particular area, detailing major road networks and other landmarks.

Links to Third Party APPs.
Our APP contains links to third party APPs. Our GhanaPostGPS makes no representations whatsoever about any other APP which you may access through this one or which may link to this APP. These other resources are not under our control, and you acknowledge that we are not responsible or liable for the content, functions, accuracy, legality, appropriateness or other aspect of such APPs or resources. The inclusion of any such link does not imply our endorsement or any association between us and their operators. When you access an APP from our APP, please understand that it is independent from our APP. These links are provided solely as a convenience to you and not as an endorsement by our APP of the contents on such third-party APPs. Our APP is not responsible for the content of linked third-party APPs and does not make any representations regarding the content or accuracy of material on such third-party APPs. If you decide to access linked third-party APPs, you do so at your own risk. You further acknowledge and agree that we shall not be responsible or liable, directly or indirectly, for any damage or loss caused or alleged to be caused by or in connection with the use of or reliance on any such content, goods or services available on or through any such APP or source.
You agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless Ghana Post Company Limited, its members, officers, directors, employees, agents, licensors, suppliers, licensors, contractors, third party information providers and others involved in the delivery of products, services or information through the APP (collectively, “Indemnified Parties”), from and against all losses, expenses, damages, judgments, awards, expenses and costs, including reasonable attorneys’ fees and litigation expenses, resulting from any use of our APP or violation of this Agreement (including negligent or wrongful conduct) by you or any other person accessing our APP. You will also indemnify and hold the Indemnified Parties harmless from and against any claims brought by third parties arising out of your use of the information accessed through the APP. We reserve the right to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by you, in which event you will assist and cooperate with us in asserting any available defenses.
Third Party Rights.
The Use of the Service, and Indemnification provisions are for the benefit of Ghana Post Company Limited and its owners, officers, directors, employees, agents, licensors, suppliers, and any third-party information providers to the Service. Each of these individuals or entities shall have the right to assert and enforce those provisions directly against you on its/their own behalf.
This Agreement shall be treated as though executed, set in force, and performed in Ghana. Accordingly, it shall be governed and construed in accordance with the laws of Ghana in terms of those applicable to agreements, without regard to conflict of law principles. You consent and submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of Ghana, in all questions and controversies arising out of your use of the APP and this Agreement.
Any cause of action by you with respect to our APP must be instituted within one (1) year after the cause of action arose or accrued, or be forever waived and barred. All actions shall be subject to the limitations set forth in these Terms of Service and Conditions of Use.
ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER
Any controversy or legal claim arising out of or relating to the use of the APP or Service, or these Terms of Service and Conditions of Use, excluding intellectual property right infringement and other claims by us, that cannot be resolved through an informal process or through negotiation within 120 days shall be settled confidentially through mandatory binding arbitration administered by the Ghana Arbitration Centre. Judgment on the award rendered may be entered in any court of law in Ghana thereof. The arbitration shall be conducted in Accra, Ghana. Each party shall bear one half of the arbitration fees and costs incurred, and each party shall bear its own lawyer fees. You agree that all disputes and all claims shall only be arbitrated on an individual basis, and shall not be consolidated, on a class-wide, representative basis, or with any other arbitration(s) or other proceedings that involve any claim or controversy of any other party. BY AGREEING TO THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT, YOU ARE GIVING UP YOUR RIGHT TO GO TO COURT, INCLUDING YOUR RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION. In arbitration, a dispute is resolved by a neutral arbitrator or panel of arbitrators, rather than by a judge or jury. Arbitration is more informal than a court trial; however, an arbitrator can award the same relief that a court can award. The arbitration will be administered by the Ghana Arbitration Centre, and may be conducted under Alternative Dispute Resolution Act, 2010 (Act 798) and any modifications in effect at the time of the dispute. IF FOR ANY REASON THIS ARBITRATION CLAUSE IS UNENFORCEABLE OR INAPPLICABLE, BOTH YOU AND WE AGREE, TO THE EXTENT PERMISSIBLE BY LAW, TO WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO PURSUE ANY CLAIMS ON A CLASS ACTION BASIS. IF ANY PORTION OF THIS CLASS ACTION WAIVER IS LIMITED, VOID, OR UNENFORCEABLE, THEN OUR AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE UNDER THIS SECTION WILL NOT APPLY AND ANY CONTROVERSY OR CLAIM MUST BE BROUGHT EXCLUSIVELY IN THE COURTS OF GHANA.
The language in these Terms of Service and Conditions of Use shall be interpreted as to its fair meaning and not strictly for or against any party. Any rule of construction to the effect that ambiguities are to be resolved against the drafting party (i.e. ñ contra preferentum) shall not apply in interpreting these Terms of Service and Conditions of Use, as the Agreement shall be construed as having been co-authored by the parties.
Should any part of these Terms of Service and Conditions of Use be held invalid or unenforceable, that portion shall be construed as much as possible consistent with applicable law and severability shall apply to the remaining portions, so that they remain in full force and effect.
This Agreement Prevails
To the extent that anything in or associated with our APP is in conflict or inconsistent with these Terms of Service and Conditions of Use, these Terms of Service and Conditions of Use shall take precedence.
CHANGE NOTICE: As with any of our administrative and legal notice pages, the contents of this page can and will change over time. Accordingly, this page could read differently as of your very next visit. These changes are necessitated, and carried out by Ghana Post Company Limited in order to protect you and our APP. If this page is important to you, you should check back frequently as no other notice of changed content will be provided either before or after the change takes effect.
