This section tells you what the App does.


We offer various functions via the App (the App Functions), including those which allow you to: 
•    create a personal Account on the App;

The list above is not necessarily a complete list of the App Functions, and we may decide to offer additional or remove some current App Functions, at any time. Please note that some App Functions are only available to those Users which have an Account. 


In addition to these Terms, your use of the App may be subject to any terms and conditions of the relevant Third Party Platform from which you download it (Third Party Platform Terms). We have no knowledge of or control over any Third Party Platform Terms and you accept the Third Party Platform Terms at your own risk. 


DOWNLOADING THE APP
The App can be downloaded for free from Third Party Platforms. Once downloaded, the App is free to access, although the principal App features will only be available to view or interact with once you have registered and created an Account.
You must be and agree that you are at least 16 years old to download and use the App and our Products. However, if you are under 18, you agree that you have parental or guardian consent to do so.


By downloading the App, you are agreeing to these Terms and any other applicable terms of CauliBox.


CREATING AN ACCOUNT
To have full access to the App and the App Functions and our Products generally, you will have to register with us and create an Account by following the onboarding steps as shown on the Digital Products. If you are under 18 years old you will be unable to register for a free Account without permission from your parent or guardian to do so. By using the Digital Products and/or signing up with us you agree to any applicable terms of the service, including these Terms. 
Please provide truthful and accurate information when registering with us – this helps us provide you with the best service and we reserve the right to permanently or temporarily suspend any User who we find has provided us with false information.


You are responsible for looking after the security of your Account information. This means that you are responsible for all activities that happen on your Account and for any access to or use of the Products by you or any person using your Account even if that access or use has not been authorised by you. 


Please immediately notify us of any unauthorised use of your Account or any other breach of security relating to any of the Products. We are not responsible for any loss or damage caused by the disclosure of your Account details to someone else. 


You are responsible for ensuring that the information we hold about you is up to date. Please amend your details as appropriate from time to time to notify us of any changes.


Please note that Businesses are provided with separate administration accounts to administer their CauliBox scheme at their selected locations. Businesses are responsible for administering these accounts in accordance with their separate agreements with CauliBox. 


USE OF CAULIBOXES
In order to commence using CauliBoxes, we require you to provide payment card information, as security against loss or damage to our Products. No payment will be taken when you supply your payment card information. Payment card information is processed using a third party payments processor (such as Stripe) (Payment Processor). We do not store payment card information.


When scanning a QR code in the App to borrow a CauliBox, Users authorise CauliBox to take a payment (currently set at £5 and reasonably adjustable from time to time by us) from that User’s payment card in the event the CauliBox is not returned within 7 days, or the CauliBox is returned in such a manner that it is no longer reusable (a Lost Box Payment). The Lost Box Payment will be authenticated upon the User accessing the CauliBox. Users have the option to report to us that a CauliBox has been lost or damaged. In such cases, the default position will be that the Lost Box Payment is charged to the User’s payment card, subject to CauliBox discretion at all times. 


Please note that you must be legally authorised to make payments with your selected payment method. Where you believe an unauthorised payment has been made, then you must immediately contact your bank or other relevant authority and report this, at which point the bank or other relevant authority will investigate. We will not deal with reports of unauthorised payments directly.


To return a CauliBox, Users must scan a QR code in the App at the Drop-off Kiosk to register that the CauliBox has been successfully returned. The User must see a message in the App that the CauliBox has been successfully returned, otherwise the CauliBox will be deemed unreturned. 


LOCATIONS
CauliBoxes may be accessed in private Business locations where that Business has subscribed to CauliBox’s business services, or in public food vendors locations.


Business Locations
Users wishing to access our Products at a Business location are required to input a Business ID number or other Business ID code (Business ID Code) in order to gain access to the CauliBox reusable food container scheme at that particular location. Businesses are provided with Business ID Codes to provide to their staff members, and Users working for a Business or working at a Business location should obtain that code within their Business. Where we change a Business ID Code for any reason, we will inform the relevant Business which will be responsible for communicating the new Business ID Code to its staff and other individuals at its location.


Public Locations
Users can access CauliBox’s Products and Services where they are available in selected public locations. Where we show in the App that there is a Drop-off Kiosk or a food vendor supplying CauliBoxes in a particular location or locations, we do not guarantee that our Products will be available in that location (although we will try to ensure that the information shown in our App is up to do date). 


In all cases, Products are always subject to availability, the good faith of our community of Users who use and return their CauliBox at available locations, the discretion of any food vendors or canteens who are administering dispensing of CauliBoxes and use of Drop-off Kiosks, and our full discretion to pause or discontinue any aspect of our Products or Services at any time without liability to any User or other third party. 


IN-APP REWARDS
We may offer in-App rewards as part of the operation of our Digital Products and Services.
In particular, CauliCoins can be collected within a User’s Account each time that User scans to borrow and scans to return a CauliBox at a Drop-off Kiosk. We determine the number of CauliCoins that is set for each scan (if any), and reserve full discretion to vary the number of CauliCoins offered at different locations and at different times, and you understand we are not obligated to provide reasoning for variations. 


CauliCoins will be registered within a User’s Account and may be redeemed in future once a sufficient number of CauliCoins have been collected to exchange for available Rewards. Rewards may be made available in exchange for different CauliCoin prices. 


We reserve full discretion to determine the format CauliCoins can be used as in-App currency in exchange for Rewards. However, all Users understand that CauliBox is entitled at all times to (i) remove or add CauliCoins from any User Account at any time at its full discretion without providing reasons for doing so, (ii) withdraw, add or adjust Rewards at any time which may have been shown to be available, (iii) discontinue or pause the availability of CauliCoins at any time, (iv) determine which Rewards are made available from time to time, (v) inform a User that a Reward is no longer available, including after they may have redeemed the reward in the App (for example where the Reward is contingent on a third party delivering something which they are no longer agreeing to deliver), and in such case we can reinstate the CauliCoins in a User’s account, and (vi) generally administer our rewards programme at our full discretion. All Users agree and understand that CauliBox holds no liability to any User (or Business) in respect of CauliCoins or our Rewards programme.


We may offer Rewards in conjunction with third parties who have agreed to make their products or services (or related promotions) available to our Users as part of our Rewards programme. We do not control the products, services or actions of any third party, including where we have agreed to include them within our Rewards programme. Users understand that the use of or access to any Reward being provided by any third party is a private contractual matter between the User and the relevant third party, and CauliBox is not party to any such relationship.


Where any User is dissatisfied or otherwise harmed as a result of redeeming any such Reward, please inform us as soon as possible so that we can take appropriate action, such as to remove the applicable Reward from our Rewards programme.
CauliCoins are non-transferable and non-saleable between Accounts. Any attempts to sell or transfer CauliCoins may result in temporary or permanent suspension from CauliBox, at our full discretion.

INTERACTION AND REPORTING
This section details how we will monitor User interactions for compliance with our standards.


Our service enables you to participate in our reusable CauliBox schemes, and from time to time we may additionally make available interactive services within through our Rewards programmes. Some of these interactions will be private to your Account, and some may be public to other Users (for example if we implement CauliCoin leaderboards). Where we make interactive features available and public to other Users, we will operate a reporting mechanism to enable any User to report anything they deem offensive, abusive or inappropriate to us – please see the next paragraph for further details on how to report. Using this retroactive mechanism, we will use our reasonable efforts to take action on any reports received and take appropriate action, which could include deleting the relevant User Content or in extreme circumstances, removing the User from CauliBox. 


Reporting mechanism: If you see any User Content or Content generally which appears on our Digital Products which you find offensive, abusive or in any way inappropriate then please notify us as soon as possible – whilst we are not able to pre-emptively moderate all User Content, we want our Digital Products to be a welcoming environment for all Users. You can report any offensive, abusive or inappropriate User Content to us by email to hello@wearecauli.com  and request that any such User Content is removed. One of our team will then review your report and take any relevant action. 


AVAILABILITY 
This section explains that we try and keep the Digital Products up and running at all times, but cannot promise that this will always be the case. 
The Digital Products are provided on an "as is" basis. We make no representations, warranties or guarantees of any kind regarding the availability or operation of the Digital Products, or that they will be secure, uninterrupted or free of defects. Further, we make no representations, warranties or guarantees of any kind regarding the availability of any Drop-off Kiosk or Product generally. We will not be responsible where you have travelled to a Drop-off Kiosk and it is not operational, although if this occurs, please let us know as soon as possible so that we may address the problem.


Your access to any of the Digital Products may be suspended or restricted occasionally to allow for maintenance, repairs, upgrades, or the introduction of new functions or services. Availability of our Products generally may also be interrupted in the case of events or occurrences beyond our reasonable control. We will not be liable to you if for any reason any of the Products are unavailable at any time or for any period.


UPDATES TO THE APP
From time-to-time updates to the App may be issued through the Third Party Platforms or directly via our Digital Products. Depending on the update, you may not be able to use the App until you have downloaded the latest version of the App and, where applicable, accepted any new terms. 


DELETING YOUR ACCOUNT
Should you wish to delete your Account with us, you can do so at any time. Please refer to our Privacy Policy for how we deal with your personal information after you have deleted your Account. 


Once you have deleted your Account, you may lose all benefits accrued to your Account up to that point (such as CauliCoins) and you will not be able to retrieve them if you choose to re-download the App at a later time.


WEBSITES WE LINK TO
This section informs you of our relationships with any third party websites that feature on our Digital Products, such as those linked to Rewards.
The Digital Products may link to or refer to other third party websites from which third party products and/or services can be obtained. Whilst we reasonably believe that these are reputable sources of such products and/or services, you acknowledge that these other websites are independent from us and we make no representations or warranties as to the legitimacy, accuracy or quality of such third party services, and we do not accept any responsibility for their content, safety, practices or privacy policies. Essentially, we will do our best to ensure they are safe but you access any third party at your own risk in all respects.

COMPUTER VIRUSES
We take measures to ensure that no part of the Digital Products will contain or spread any viruses or other malicious code but this section explains how you can best protect your devices.  
We recommend that you ensure that equipment used to access the Digital Products run up-to-date anti-virus software as a precaution, and you are advised to virus-check any materials downloaded from any of the Digital Products and regularly check for the presence of viruses and other malicious code. 


To the full extent permitted by law we exclude liability for damage or loss of any kind caused by viruses or other harmful components originating or contracted from the Digital Products.


NO RELIANCE ON INFORMATION 
All information published on or via the Digital Products is provided in good faith and for general information purpose only. We make no warranties about the completeness, reliability, or accuracy of such information. Any action you take based on such information is taken at your own risk. 


IF THERE IS A PROBLEM WITH THE WEBSITE AND/OR APP
If you have any questions or complaints about the Website, App, or any Content, or Products please contact us. You can contact us by email to hello@wearecauli.com. 


OUR RESPONSIBILITY FOR LOSS OR DAMAGE SUFFERED BY YOU
We do not exclude or limit 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 and for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation.


We provide the Products for private use only. You agree not to use any of them for any commercial or business purposes, and we will have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.


We are not responsible for the acts or omissions of any Third Party Platform.


Whilst we monitor our Drop-off Kiosks and Products generally, we do not administer them at all times, nor can we control the actions of any User or person who uses our Products inappropriately or in anyway which results in damage to them. For example, we will not be responsible where a User has damaged or defaced a CauliBox and returned it, and another User then takes the CauliBox and suffers any damage as a result. Such actions are beyond our reasonable control and we are reliant on the good faith of our Users to uphold high standards of integrity, and any User failing to do so may be removed or investigated for breaching these Terms.


If any Content delivered by us using any of the Digital Products damages a device or digital content belonging to you and this is caused by our failure to use reasonable care and skill, 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 download, installation, or usage instructions or to have in place the minimum system requirements and anti-virus software advised by us.


Except as set out in the paragraphs above, you accept and agree we will not be liable for any harmful effect that accessing the Products and/or any Content may have on you, and you agree that you access the Products at your own risk. 


COMMUNICATIONS BETWEEN US
If you wish to contact us for any reason, you can do so to hello@wearecauli.com. 


We will only contact you if we make any relevant updates or changes to our services, or where you have signed up for marketing communications.

 

You may opt out of marketing communications at any time by using the "unsubscribe" link (or similar) provided in any applicable correspondence.

 
The App may use pop-up notifications, unless you disable them. Please note though that it is not possible to disable service information or error alerts.  


OTHER IMPORTANT TERMS
We may transfer our rights and obligations under these Terms to another organisation, but this will not affect your rights or our obligations under these Terms. 


Under these Terms, you are granted a licence only in respect of our Products. We retain ownership in the Products at all times. 


If we do not enforce our rights against you, or if we delay in doing so, that does not mean that we have waived our rights against you, and it does not mean that you are relieved of your obligations under these Terms. If we do waive a breach by you, we will only do so in writing, and that will not mean that we will automatically waive any later breach by you. 


Each of the terms and conditions of these Terms operates separately as part of a legally binding contract between each User and CauliBox. If any court or competent authority decides that any of them are unlawful or unenforceable, the remaining terms and conditions will remain in full force and effect. 


These Terms are governed by English law and the courts of England and Wales have non-exclusive jurisdiction. 


CauliBox is a trademark of Cauli Ltd. All CauliBox trademarks, service marks, trade names, logos, domain names, and any other features of the CauliBox brand (“CauliBox Brand Features”) are the sole property of CauliBox or its licensors. These Terms do not grant you any rights to use any CauliBox Brand Features whether for commercial or non-commercial use.

2. The personal information we collect, how we collect it, and why

Personal information means any information about an individual from which that individual can be identified. The following shows information we process about you, and the purpose for which we process that information. There may be more than one reason for which we collect such information and we have only listed the main reasons. If you would like further information, please contact us at hello@wearecauli.com.

Information you provide to us

  • User Account information, such as your name and email address and other contact details.

    • Your account information enables us to personally and uniquely identify and communicate with you, both within the App, and externally in emails, SMS messages and other forms of communication. We also require this information for billing, account eligibility purposes and account maintenance purposes.

  • Your preferences for receiving communications and notifications

    • We store your preferences so we know exactly how to communicate with you (e.g. for marketing or sending service communications), and in some cases, how not to communicate with you.

 

Information we collect automatically

  • Account status

    • We store information about your User Account and interactions with our service, including where, you borrow and return (or do not return) a CauliBox.

  • Unique identifiers

    • When someone signs up with us, we generate unique identifiers (e.g. a number) as a mechanism to identify them across our technical systems, and to link that person with their product preferences, billing records, service interaction analytics and customer service history.

  • Your interactions with our service

    • When you interact with our Products, we record and track this information for our ongoing operations and to analyse how our Users enjoy our service so that we can continue to develop it.

  • Payment information (e.g. records of transactions, payment tokens)

    • We record payment and transaction data, for example in relation to Lost Box Payments, to keep financial and security records for our business and to comply with our legal obligations to retain financial and transaction information. We also keep a record of where payments have been successful or have failed against a User’s details in our systems.

  • IP address

    • This enables us to uniquely identify you and to distinguish you from other Users. In turn, it enables us to deliver you a more personalised service (e.g. more relevant CauliBox locations listed when searching).

  • Records of promotions

    • Whenever we hold promotions, for example through our Rewards programme, we keep an internal record of how they have been applied. We collect data around promotions, how Users interact with them, and we use that data to improve the way we run promotions in future.

 

 

Information we collect from other sources

  • Social media or third party sign in information

    • As part of the sign-up process, we import some of the information you may have disclosed to your social media pages, such as Facebook or Google (if you are able to and choose to connect to CauliBox via a social network).

 

In respect of all the above information, our overarching purpose is to enable us to generate a trusted, secure, engaged and community of people who want to eliminate the need for single-use packaging in the different branches of the takeaway food market. We want all of our visitors and Users’ information to be secure, but also visible to us so that we can provide them personalised customer service and a customised user experience.

 

3. Our legal basis for processing personal information

We only ever use your information in line with applicable data protection laws – in particular, the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the UK Data Protection Act 2018. In short, this means we only use it where we have a legal basis to do so. Under GDPR, these are the general legal bases for which we process your personal information, as detailed in the table above: 

  • Consent – you have given us consent to process your personal information for a specific purpose that we have told you about.

  • Performance of our contract – processing your personal information is necessary for a contract you have with us, or because we have asked you to take specific steps before entering into that contract.

  • Legitimate interests – processing your personal information is necessary for our legitimate interests or those of a third party, provided those interests are not outweighed by your rights and interests (including where processing is required to comply with or enforce a legal obligation, or to exercise or defend our legal rights).

 

4. When do we share your personal information?

We may disclose your information for certain purposes and to third parties, as described below:

  • CauliBox staff and our group of companies: we share your information with our staff (including employees, consultants, agents and advisors) and within the CauliBox group of companies as required for: providing you with access to our services according to our agreement, data storage and processing, providing customer support, making internal choices around business improvements, content development, and for the other purposes set out in this Privacy Policy. Where we hire staff outside of the EEA, we ensure that they are party to equivalency measures and contractual safeguards as mandated by the European Commission.

  • Third Party Providers: We use certain companies, agents or contractors (Third Party Providers) to perform services on our behalf or to help deliver our services to you. We contract with Third Party Providers, for example to provide payment processing services (Stripe), to analyse and action data (Google Analytics), email, messaging and newsletter communications, as well as for infrastructure and IT services, to personalise and enhance our services, to provide customer service, and to process and administer consumer surveys. In the course of providing such services, these Third Party Providers may have access to your personal information. We do not authorise them to use or disclose your personal information except in connection with providing their services to us.

  • Promotions with our partners: We may offer joint promotions, schemes or incentives with our selected partners that, in order for you to participate, will require us to share your information with the relevant partner, in particular when redeeming CauliCoins as part of our Rewards programme. In fulfilling these types of promotions, we may share your name and other information in connection with fulfilling the relevant incentive. Please note that our partners are responsible for their own privacy and data protection methods and if applicable you should refer to their relevant privacy policy.

  • To protect legitimate interests: There are certain circumstances where CauliBox and our Third Party Providers may disclose and/or make use of your information where a disclosure would be necessary to: (a) satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process, or other legal or governmental request or requirement, (b) enforce applicable terms of use, including investigation of any actual or alleged breaches, (c) detect, prevent, or otherwise address illegal or suspected illegal activities (including payment fraud), security or technical issues, or (d) protect against harm to the rights, property or safety of CauliBox, its Subscribers, visitors or the public, as required or permitted by law.

  • Transfers of our business: In connection with any corporate reorganisation, restructuring, investment, merger or sale, or other transfer of assets, we will transfer information, including personal information, provided that the receiving party agrees to comply with our requirements as set out in this Privacy Policy relating to your personal information.

 

5. Communications

This section is to explain how we will ensure that you only receive communications that you wish to receive.

Marketing communications:

We want to ensure that you are informed and aware of the best services and promotions that we can offer you. By consenting to receive additional communications (by mail, telephone, text/picture/video message or email) from us and any named third parties that feature at the point of obtaining consent in respect of such information, we will process your personal information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

You can change your marketing preferences and unsubscribe at any time by accessing the settings within our App (if such functionality is available) or emailing us. If you choose not to receive this information we will be unable to keep you informed of new services and promotions of ours, or the CauliBox group of companies, that may interest you.

Whatever you choose, you’ll still receive other important information, for example service updates, as described below.

Service communications:

As detailed in the table at section 2, we may send you communications such as those which relate to any service updates (e.g. service availability, product releases, new locations) or provide customer satisfaction surveys. We consider that we can lawfully send these communications to you as we have a legitimate interest to do so, namely to effectively provide you with the best service we can and to grow our business.

6. How long do we store your personal information?

Unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law, we will only hold your personal information on our systems for the period necessary to fulfil the purposes outlined in this Privacy Policy or until you request that the data be deleted. Even if we delete your personal information, it may persist on backup or archival media for legal, tax or regulatory purposes.

In accordance with this Privacy Policy, you have the right to request that we delete your personal information, except where we are legally permitted or required to maintain certain personal information. For example:

  • We are legally required to retain financial and transaction data for a minimum period of 7 years for tax, audit and accounting purposes. This includes keeping a record of the amount of each transaction, what it related to, and who we transacted with.

  • If there is an unresolved issue relating to your account, for example relating to a complaint surrounding a Lost Box Payment or your CauliCoins, then we will retain your personal information until the issue is resolved.

  • There may be other situations where we have legitimate business interests to retain personal information, such as to prevent fraud or protect security of our other Subscribers.

Any Third Party Providers that we engage will keep your personal information stored on their systems for as long as is necessary to provide the relevant services to you or us. If we end our relationship with any third party providers, we will take reasonable steps to ensure that they securely delete or return your personal information to us.

We may retain personal information about you for statistical purposes. Where information is retained for statistical purposes it will always be anonymised, meaning that you will not be identifiable from that information.

7. Security of your personal information

We are committed to securing and protecting your personal information, and we make sure to implement appropriate technical and organisational measures to help protect the security of your personal information. We may adopt various policies including anonymisation, pseudonymisation, encryption, password restricted access, and retention policies to guard against unauthorised access and unnecessary retention of personal information in our systems.

The information that we collect from you may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside of the European Economic Area (EEA). When we transfer and store your personal information outside of the EEA we will take steps to ensure that the information is transferred in accordance with this Privacy Policy and applicable data protection laws. In particular, we will ensure that appropriate contractual, technical, and organisational measures are in place with any parties outside the EEA such as the Standard Contractual Clauses approved by the EU Commission.

Unfortunately, the transmission of your personal information via the internet is not completely secure and although we do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your information transmitted to us over the internet and you acknowledge that any transmission is at your own risk.

8. Links

Our Platform may, from time to time, contain links to websites operated by third parties. This Privacy Policy only applies to the personal information that we collect from you and we cannot be responsible for personal information collected and stored by third parties. If you click on a link, please understand that the relevant third party websites have their own terms and conditions and privacy policies, and we do not accept any responsibility for the content of those third party websites or third party terms and conditions or policies. Please check these policies before you submit any personal information to these websites.

 

9. Restrictions

You must be 16 years of age or older to use our Products. We do not knowingly collect personal information from individuals under 16 years of age. If you are under that age limit, then please do not use CauliBox or provide any personal information to us. If you are under 18, you must have parental or guardian consent to use CauliBox.

If we learn that we have collected personal information of an individual under our age limits or otherwise without consent, then we will take all reasonable steps to delete that information from our systems which we are legally entitled to, and if required, delete the relevant User Account.

10. Your rights and choices

This section explains that you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information.

Under the GDPR and the UK Data Protection Act 2018, as a User of our Platform, you are entitled to certain rights. There are circumstances in which your rights may not apply. You have the right to request that we:

  • provide you with a copy of the information we hold about you;

  • update any of your personal information if it is inaccurate or out of date;

  • delete the personal information we hold about you - if we are providing services to you and you ask us to delete personal information we hold about you then we may be unable to continue providing those services to you;

  • restrict the way in which we process your personal information;

  • stop processing your data if you have valid objections to such processing; and

  • transfer your personal information to a third party.

For more information on your rights and how to use them, or if you would like to make any of the requests set out above, please contact us.

We may at certain times need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal information (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal information is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.

As explained in section 4, even if you consented to the processing of your personal information for marketing purposes (by ticking the relevant box or by requesting information about services for example), you have the right to ask us to stop processing your personal information for such purposes. You can exercise this right at any time by contacting us or adjusting your privacy and notification settings within the App. Please note that we reserve the right to charge a fee for responding to requests where we reasonably determine that they are manifestly unfounded or onerous or being made in bad faith.

11. Contacting us

If you have any questions or concerns about how we handle your personal information, please contact by email to hello@wearecauli.com.

If you are not satisfied with the way a complaint you make in relation to your Data is handled by us, you may be able to refer your complaint to the relevant data protection authority.

12. Cookies

We may use cookies on our Platform (e.g. for site analytics) which help us monitor use of the Digital Products, and in turn improve it based on how our Users interact with them. You can choose to accept or turn off cookies within your browser settings.

13. General

You may not transfer any of your rights under this Privacy Policy to any other person. We may transfer our rights under this privacy policy where we reasonably believe your rights will not be affected.

If any court or competent authority finds that any provision of this Privacy Policy (or part of any provision) is invalid, illegal or unenforceable, that provision or part-provision will, to the extent required, be deemed to be deleted, and the validity and enforceability of the other provisions of this Privacy Policy will not be affected.

Unless otherwise agreed, no delay, act or omission by a party in exercising any right or remedy will be deemed a waiver of that, or any other, right or remedy.

This Privacy Policy will be governed by and interpreted according to the law of England and Wales. All disputes arising under the Agreement will be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English and Welsh courts.
