These conditions become effective when you access the site for the first time and constitute a binding agreement between us (Topin South Africa) and yourself, which will always prevail. The current version of these conditions will govern our respective rights and obligations each time you access this site.



Nature of information on the site

All information on this site is only intended to provide you with general information about us, our products, services and objectives. Nothing on this site should be treated as an offer but merely as an invitation to do business with us.

We may use the services of other organisations to provide information on the site. We have no control over this information and make no representations or warranties of any nature as to its accuracy, appropriateness or correctness.

Linked third party sites

This site may contain links to other websites with information and material produced by other parties. While we try to provide links only to reputable websites, we cannot accept responsibility or liability for the information provided on other websites. A link from our site to any other website does not mean that we have scrutinised or endorsed the owners or administrators of the websites or their business or security practices and operations.

Nobody may establish a hyperlink, frame, metatag or similar reference, whether electronically or otherwise (collectively referred to as linking), to this site before receiving our prior written approval, which may be withheld or granted subject to the conditions we specify from time to time.

Breach of these conditions entitles us to take legal action without prior notice to you and you agree to reimburse the costs associated with such legal action to us on an attorney and own client scale.
