1. ACCESSING OUR SERVICES
1.1 We provide our services through a number of social media and messaging platforms. You will need to use one of these to access our services. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any such social media and/or messaging platforms are owned and operated by third-party providers over whom we exercise no control. Each platform has or will have their own terms of use which you will need to read and agree to in order to use such platforms to contact us. The third parties providing the platforms through which you can contact us shall have the right to enforce such terms against you. This goes for any third party services required to provide the services to you and it shall be your responsibility to familiarize yourself with any third party terms and conditons as such terms also form an integral part of these terms and shall be enforceable against you.
1.2 By using any third party social media and/or messaging platforms and thereby accessing Yanzo, you will need to be able to create a legally binding agreement. Since you are accessing our services through a platform owned and operated by a third-party, we do not accept any responsibility to the contrary and have taken such third-party’s approval of your creation of an account with them to also mean that you are able to create a legally binding agreement. If this is not the case and/or you do not agree to either our or any third party’s terms of use, you should stop using Yanzo and not access either our services and/or this website anymore.
1.3 To access Yanzo, just send a message to our team on your preferred platform on which we have made contacting us available.

Yanzo may request additional information about the goods and/or services to find you the most appropriate ones. Goods and/or services procured for you shall be on a best-effort basis. By using Yanzo’s services you agree and understand that Yanzo is procuring such goods and/or services from third parties and shall therefore not be able to guarantee that Yanzo will always be able to procure you the goods and/or services that you require. Goods and/or services may also be subject to additional terms and conditions from the providers. You are responsible for the information you provide to Yanzo, which shall be as specific as possible, as Yanzo shall base its search and the goods and/or services it offers and procures you, on the information which you provide.
1.5 Yanzo will respond back in the chat with an option (and/or more than one option) for the goods and/or services at the price which Yanzo is able to procure them and/or arrange them for you at. There will be an option in the chat to proceed to purchase and pay for the goods and/or services, at which point, on the first time you confirm to purchase a good and/or service through Yanzo, you will be redirected to a secure third party payment gateway where you will be asked to register your details for payment. The details that you provide will be securely stored for future (to make your experience with Yanzo even easier and more efficient for future purchase). Should you wish to change these at any time, please inform Yanzo accordingly.
1.6 Please ensure that all requests made to Yanzo for goods and/or services, are legal and appropriate. Yanzo shall not procure illicit substances for you, alcohol or inappropriate services and may refuse any request at its sole and absolute discretion. Yanzo also has a no-harassment policy.

This is only required for the first order and purchase that you confirm and make. After that, Yanzo has made it easy… the third party payment provider safely and securely stores the payment information that you have provided and Yanzo will complete future purchases on your behalf.
