Miscellaneous Terms

Just so we’re clear, you also must be aware of our miscellaneous terms before signing up.

The Company shall not be liable for any breach of these T&Cs, due to any force-majeure event such as an act of God, fire, lightning, explosion, flood, inclement weather conditions, power failures, failure in any communication systems, equipment breakdown, strikes, lock-out or any other cause beyond the control of the Company.

If any part of these T&Cs is determined to be invalid or unenforceable pursuant to applicable law, then the invalid or unenforceable provision will be deemed superseded by a valid, enforceable provision that most closely matches the intent of the original provision and the remainder of the T&Cs shall continue in effect.
