Our responsibility for loss or damage suffered by you

If we fail to comply with these terms, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking these terms or our failing to use reasonable care and skill, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time you accepted these terms, both we and you knew it might happen.

We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so. This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors or for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation.

If defective digital content that we have supplied damages a device or digital content belonging to you, we will either repair the damage or pay you compensation. However, we will not be liable for damage that you could have avoided by following our advice to apply an update offered to you free of charge or for damage that was caused by you  failing to correctly follow installation instructions or to have in place the minimum system requirements advised by us.

We are not liable for business losses. The Platform is offered to end users for domestic and private use. If you use the Platform for any commercial, business or resale purpose we will have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.

You must obtain professional or specialist advice before taking, or refraining from, any action on the basis of information obtained from the Platform. Although we make reasonable efforts to update the information provided by the Platform, we make no representations, warranties or guarantees, whether express or implied, that such information is accurate, complete or up to date.

We recommend that you back up any content and data used in connection with the Platform, to protect yourself in case of problems with the Platform.

The Platform has not been developed to meet your individual requirements. Please check that the facilities and functions of the Platform meet your requirements.

We are not responsible for events outside our control. If our provision of or support for the Platform is delayed by an event outside our control then we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimise the effect of the delay. Provided we do this we will not be liable for delays caused by the event but if there is a risk of substantial delay you may contact us to end your contract with us.

We may end your rights to use the Platform if you break these terms

We may end your rights to use the Platform at any time by contacting you if you have broken these terms in a serious way. If what you have done can be put right, we will give you a reasonable opportunity to do so.

  • you must stop all activities authorised by these terms, including your use of the Platform.

We may cease providing you with access.

We may transfer this agreement to someone else

We may transfer our rights and obligations under these terms to another organisation. We will always tell you in writing if this happens and we will ensure that the transfer will not affect your rights under the contract.

You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under these terms to another person if we agree in writing.

No rights for third parties

This agreement does not give rise to any rights under the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 to enforce any term of this agreement. If a court finds part of this contract illegal, the rest will continue in force

Laws

Each of the paragraphs of these terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.

If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date.

These terms are governed by English law, and you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in the English courts.
