DATA PROTECTION GUIDELINES FOR HI-INNOVATOR PROGRAMME
Your privacy is important to us.
It is the Hi-Innovator Programme’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while engaging with this website. Accordingly, we have developed data protection guidelines in order for you to understand how we collect, use, communicate, disclose and otherwise make use of any information used on the website.
At all times we shall make reasonable efforts to maintain our compliance with Uganda’s Data Protection and Privacy Act (2019) any other digital and electronic laws governing the use of data and digital technologies in Uganda. For the purposes of this document, the “Hi-Innovator Programme” may also be referred to as “Hi-Innovator”. The Hi-Innovator Programme is an innovation project for the National Social Security Fund (“NSSF”, or “the Fund”).

By accessing this website, you are agreeing to be bound by these terms of service, all applicable laws and regulations, and agree that you are responsible for compliance with any applicable local laws. If you do not agree with any of these terms, you are prohibited from using or accessing this site.
Permission is granted to temporarily download materials (information or software) made available on the Hi-Innovator website for personal, non-commercial transitory viewing only. This is the grant of a licence, not a transfer of title, and under this licence, you may not:
- modify or copy the materials;
- use the materials for any commercial purpose, or any public display (commercial or non-commercial);
- attempt to decompile or reverse engineer any software contained on the Hi-Innovator website; remove any copyright or other proprietary notations from the materials; or
- transfer the materials to another person or entity, or "mirror" the materials on any other physical or digital platform.
This licence shall automatically terminate if you violate any of these restrictions and may be terminated by NSSF at any time. Upon terminating your viewing of these materials or upon the termination of this licence, you must destroy any downloaded materials in your possession whether in electronic or printed format.
The materials on the Hi-Innovator website are provided on an 'as-is' basis. NSSF makes no warranties, expressed or implied, and hereby disclaims and negates all other warranties including, without limitation, implied warranties or conditions of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, or non-infringement of intellectual property or other violation of rights. Further, NSSF does not warrant or make any representations concerning the accuracy, likely results, or reliability of the use of the materials on the Hi-Innovator website or otherwise relating to such materials or on any sites linked to this site.
In no event shall NSSF or its suppliers be liable for any damages (including, without limitation, damages for loss of data or profit, or due to business interruption) arising out of the use or inability to use the materials on the Hi-Innovator website, even if NSSF or an authorised representative has been notified orally or in writing of the possibility of such damage. Because some jurisdictions do not allow limitations on implied warranties, or limitations of liability for consequential or incidental damages, these limitations may not apply to you.

The materials appearing on the website could include technical, typographical, or photographic errors. NSSF does not warrant that any of the materials on the Hi-Innovator website are accurate, complete or current. Though NSSF does not make any commitment to update the materials listed on the Hi-Innovator website, NSSF may make changes to the materials at any time without notice.
NSSF is not liable to any content that may be linked on its website, or any website that may include the Hi-Innovator website amongst its links. The inclusion of any link does not imply endorsement by NSSF and the use of any such linked websites is at the user's own risk.
NSSF may revise these terms of service on the Hi-Innovator website at any time without notice. By using this website, you agree to be bound by the then current version of these terms of service.
These terms are governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of Uganda and you irrevocably submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts in Uganda.
