OUTsurance refer a friend brochure

By referring someone to us through our website, app, contact centre or USSD method, you agree to the terms and conditions explained below.

These referral terms and conditions will apply to all referrals submitted for Personal, Business or Life cover with OUTsurance as well as for OUTsurance Namibia.

Definitions:

The Referrer is you, the client who has an active facility with us and who wants your friends and family to be quoted by us, and have accepted these terms and conditions, privacy policey and the disclaimer.

The Referee is the person that you referred to OUTsurance who is interested in taking out insurance cover with us and such a person should not already have an active quote i.e. where the person has been quoted with us in the last 30 days. Once you agree to the terms and conditions you will be able to refer a certain number of referrals to us per day and per month.  We will notify you once you have reached your daily or monthly referral limit.

The words “us”, “we” or “our” refer to the OUTsurance Holdings Group.

In order to qualify for a discount on your premium you will need to have a qualifying product already on cover with us.  If you have the following products on cover only, you will not be entitled to the discounted premium for any referrals:

  • Any Fleet Products;
  • Home Loan Products;
  • The old Credit Life Products (Please note the current Credit Protection product is deemed to be a qualifying product)

Qualifying products are: Personal products (excluding the home loans products), Commercial products (excluding the Fleet products), Underwritten Life products, Credit Protection products (excluding the old Credit Life products), OUTsurance Namibia Personal Products (excluding the home loans products) and the OUTsurance Namibia Commercial Products (excluding the fleet products).

This brochure is an agreement between you and us.  The agreement sets out the terms and conditions governing the referral services that are available through the service channels and therefore should be read in conjunction with the privacy policey and the Disclaimer that appear below.

Discounted premium

Once you have successfully referred a referral to us, the referee must accept an insurance facility with us. Once we have collected R400 in premium from the referee’s bank account and 15 days have passed since the full R400 has been cashed, we will then allocate the R400 to your premium discount balance. Should the referee’s premium reject or reverse before the 15 day period, you will not be entitled to the R400 discount. 

Once the R400 is in your discount balance, the discount will be allocated to your subsequent insurance premium collection/s. The discount is applicable to both monthly and annual premium facilities.

We will do a search to see where you are noted on an insurance facility. The search will be done in the following order:

  • Facility Holder
  • Contact Person
  • Member
  • Regular Driver
  • Life OUTsured, Beneficiary or Risk Owner

The discount in your discount balance will be applied to the facility/ies where we first find you noted as per the order provided for above.

The discount applied to the premium on your facility might include discount that is applicable to other people who are covered on your facility and who have submitted successful referrals.

If you are noted as a Contact Person, Member, Regular Driver, Risk Owner, Life OUTsured or Beneficiary on a facilities where the facility holder is a staff member of ours, any discount available in your discount balance will not be allocated to that facility. If we do not trace you within 30 days from date of discount allocation as one of the people noted above on another active facility, which is not a staff facility,  you will lose all discount available in your discount balance.

Should your available discount amount be more than your premium which is due to be collected on your facility, the amount of premium to be collected will be R 0 and any remaining discount will remain in your discount balance for allocation to the following premium collections on your facility/ies.

Should your discounted premium not be collected on the premium collection date due to insufficient funds or incorrect banking details, the discount will not apply to the resubmission of that premium. The full monthly or annual premium will therefore be resubmitted without any discount allocated to the collection/premium. The discount will however go back to your discount balance to be allocated on subsequent premium collections.

Tax:

The discount allocated to your premium is subject to VAT.

The VAT will be charged once the discount has been allocated to your premium collection.

The VAT calculation applies to all short term insurance premiums.

 VAT however will not be calculated on Life insurance premiums as Life insurance premiums are not subject to VAT.

The discounted insurance premium will have no impact on your OUTbonus amount and will therefore not impact on your projected amount.

A Statement of Discount may be provided to you on request.

Cancellation of facility or risk and the effect on discounted premium:

Should you cancel your facility or a risk on your facility or should you be covered on someone else’s facility and the cover is cancelled, the discount that you have in your discount balance will be available for 30 days from date of cancellation. If you do not reinstate your cover or sign up new cover with us within 30 days, you will lose your discount balance.

Refund of premium in respect of cancellation of facility or risk on cover

Should you cancel your facility or a risk from your facility, we will only refund premiums that we have collected per product.  Therefore, should we have collected no premium or only a part of the premium for that insurance product after the referral discount was applied, you will only receive a refund in the amount that we collected from you subject to any pro-rata adjustment that is applicable.  Any discount amount that needs to be pro-rated, if applicable, will be placed back into the discount balance to be applied in the event that you decide to reinstate cover within the 30days from the date of cancellation. 

General rules:

The FAIS Act states that a person who is not an authorised Financial Services Provider (FSP), accredited or is not a mandated representative of a FSP is not permitted to give advice on financial products or provide any financial intermediary services to any other person.

No referrer is allowed to give advice or intermediary services in respect of any financial service including but not limited to insurance, to prospective facility holders or act as an in-between insurance agent in any way.

Insurance law prohibits inducement and therefore no Referrer may offer a referee an incentive to become a facility holder with us.  Therefore a referrer may not bring any prospective facility holder under the impression that he/she may be obliged in any way to take out a facility with us.

You must always act in accordance with the terms and conditions as set out above. 

We will not be liable for any illegal or unlawful actions or misrepresentations made by the Referrer to the Referee in respect of this service or any OUTsurance product.   The referrer is not mandated to act as a representative, agent or authorised to incur any obligations or liabilities on our behalf or to give any warranties, representations or undertakings of any nature on our behalf.

Monitoring of information

We may monitor and record communications or traffic on the referral service channels in order to maintain the proper functioning of the referral services as well as to detect any unauthorised use, or when the law requires us to do so.

Amendment of agreement

We have the right to amend or add new terms and conditions for the use of the referral service channels at any time.  Whenever we change this agreement we will electronically update this agreement, the privacy policey, the disclaimer and the other annexures that are applicable.  We will notify you of the updated version.  If you do not agree with the amendments and fail to notify us of your intention to end the agreement within the 7(seven) day period, it shall be assumed that you have accepted the amended or new terms and conditions. 

You agree to review the terms and conditions of this agreement, privacy policey, Disclaimer and all other annexures whenever you access the referral channels for any such amendments. Save as expressly provided to the contrary in this agreement, the amended version of the agreement shall supersede and replace all previous versions thereof.

Termination of agreement

We can terminate your right to referrals at any time or end your right to make referrals through any of the available service channels, upon providing you with reasonable notice.  This will not affect referrals loaded whilst using the services available before the agreement has ended.

In instances where we establish that the referrer commits fraud or miscommunicates any information in respect of advice, we reserve the right to cancel the agreement with immediate effect and any referral discount, subject to the particular fraudulent conduct or miscommunication, will not be payable.

We reserve the right to terminate your right to submit referrals should any one or more of the following events occur:

  • You commit fraud or we suspect that you have done so;
  • Where we are under the impression that your behaviour was inappropriate or constitutes misconduct or prohibited conduct as fully detailed under “General rules” above;
  • If you breach this agreement;
  • If the law requires us to do so;

Severability

Every clause of this agreement is severable from the others including the clause headings.  The clause headings have been inserted for convenience and will therefore not be taken into consideration in its interpretation.  If one or more of the clauses are invalid it will not mean the entire agreement is invalid and as such the rest of the clauses contained in the agreement will still be valid and apply.
