Terms of use

Last updated: 14 October 2020

A short wrap-up

Let's keep thing simple.

When you appoint OkiOki as your digital assistant, she will go "all-the-way" to support you with the financial administration of your company (company or self-employed).

A simple subscription

OkiOki has worked for months to design these services and you can use them as long as you pay for those services (either through your accountant or directly as an entrepreneur). You will therefore only be offered the services for which you have paid a subscription and it assumes that you only use them to get and keep your financial administration in order.

You are ultimately responsible and you keep an overview

Do know that OkiOki will do her best to help you, but that you will remain ultimately responsible for your company and the data you share with her. As much as OkiOki likes to work autonomously, she occasionally needs guidance and she can only get it from you. Therefore, OkiOki will leave some decisions to you and sometimes you will have to help her correct something she had misinterpreted.
In the end, you are also ultimately responsible for the (number of) documents you upload. Please be aware that the costs for using the OkiOki App can increase if you upload more documents than initially agreed upon.

Security guaranteed, recognized by the National Bank of Belgium

OkiOki is licensed by the National Bank to access your checking account(s) and is well aware that security is the basic requirement. She is surrounded by experts in this field, so that she can ensure that your data is safe. In any case, as befits a good assistant, she remains very discrete about the things she learns from you (see the privacy policy), because in order to improve her services, she (and her team) must occasionally look at things that you shared with her.

You can cancel the subscription at any time, no strings attached

If you think that OkiOki doesn’t add value to your financial administration, she would like to hear from you what you are missing, send her that info at hello@33reasons.be. If you really want to stop the collaboration, you can of course also do that. OkiOki will be very disappointed in herself then, but professional as she is, she will make sure that everything is followed up perfectly.

Do you want more details about the agreements you accept when you work with OkiOki? Be sure to read on because all nitty-gritty details are below.
