- The limitations of damages set forth above are fundamental elements of the basis of the bargain between us and the user. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, so the above limitation may not apply to the user.

The limitations of liability provided in these terms inure to the benefit of ourselves.
Each user agrees to defend and indemnify and hold us, our parent, related bodies corporate, officers, directors, contractors, employees and agents) harmless from and against any claims, actions, suits, demands, damages, liabilities, costs or expenses (including legal costs and expenses on a full indemnity basis), including in tort, contract or negligence, arising out of or connected to the user’s use of or access to the site or our services; any breach by the user of these terms; any wilful, unlawful or negligent act or omission by the user; and any violation by the user of any applicable laws or the rights of any third party.
We reserve the right to assume the exclusive defence and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by the user, in which event the user will cooperate in asserting any available defences.
This defence and indemnification obligation will survive these terms and conditions and the user’s use of the site or services. These terms, and any rights and licences granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by the user, but may be assigned ourselves without restriction.
Whilst we will endeavour to keep the information up to date and correct, we make no representations, warranties or guarantee, express or implied, about the completeness, accuracy, reliability, suitability or availability of any information, images, products, services, or related graphics contained on the site for any particular purpose.

Any notice in connection with the terms will be deemed to have been duly given when made in writing and delivered or sent by email or post to the party to whom such notice is intended to be given or to such other address or email address as may from time to time be notified in writing to the other party.
Any failure by a party to insist upon strict performance by the other of any provision in the terms and conditions will not be taken to be a waiver of any existing or future rights in relation to the provision. No waiver by ourselves of any of the terms shall be effective unless we expressly state that it is a waiver and we have communicated it to the user in writing.
A user must not assign any rights and obligations under the terms whether in whole or in part without our prior written consent.
