We give no warranties, express or implied, as to the content provided in our subscription services (including without limitation warranties as to defamation, accuracy, breach of confidence, copyright ownership, moral rights, fitness for any purpose, or any other rights of any kind) since much of the content is user generated and we therefore disclaim all liability and responsibility arising from any reliance placed on such materials by any visitor to our site, or by anyone who may be informed of any of its contents.

Whilst we will make commercially reasonable efforts to maintain the currency, accuracy, and availability of the subscription services, we give no warranty that the content will be free from error, constant or that there will be uninterrupted access the subscription services.

You are solely responsible for protecting your hardware, software and system from such attacks.

In no circumstances shall we be liable for any loss of profits, loss of business, depletion of goodwill and/or similar losses or pure economic loss, or for any special, indirect or consequential loss, costs, damages, charges or expenses howsoever arising.

Miscellaneous

Nothing in these Terms of Use will be deemed to create a partnership or joint venture between us. Neither of us shall have the authority to bind the other or to contract in the name of or create a liability against the other in any way for any purpose.

No failure or delay by either us in exercising our rights under these Terms of Use will operate as a waiver of that right nor will any single or partial exercise by us or you of any right preclude any further exercise of any other right.

If any provision of these Terms of Use is found to be illegal, void or unenforceable by any court of competent jurisdiction, such invalidity shall not affect the validity of the remaining terms of Use.

A person who is not a party to our Terms of Use has no right under the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 to rely upon or enforce any term of our agreement but this does not affect any right or remedy of a third party which exists or is available apart from that Act.
