16. Termination of the Agreement
Fairville may discontinue all or any part of the Website or the Services, or terminate your access to all or any part of the Website or the Services, at any time, with or without cause, with or without notice, effective immediately or otherwise, which may result in the forfeiture and destruction of all information associated with your membership. If you wish to de-activate/terminate your account, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, explicitly requesting for your account to be deactivated, which request is to be accompanied with a signed copy of an official means of identification (e.g. identity card or passport). All provisions of the Agreement which explicitly or by their nature are intended to survive termination shall survive termination, including, without limitation, intellectual property rights provisions, warranty disclaimers, indemnity and limitations of liability related provisions.
17. Applicable Law and Jurisdiction
The Agreement is exclusively governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of Belgium, excluding its conflict of law principles. Any dispute in connection with or arising from the Agreement shall be finally adjudicated by the competent courts of Ghent, Belgium.
You agree to bring any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to the Website, the Services or this Agreement, to the extent permitted hereunder or under mandatory applicable law, within one (1) year from the date on which the cause of action arose, failure of which shall result in such claim or such cause of action being permanently barred.
18. Entire agreement and Severability
The Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between you and Fairville concerning the Website and the Services. If any provision of the Agreement is deemed invalid by a court of competent jurisdiction, the invalidity of such provision shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of the Agreement, which shall remain in full force and effect, and the invalid or unenforceable provision shall be deemed superseded by a valid, enforceable provision which most closely matches the intent of the original provision. You acknowledge and agree that a printed copy of the Agreement and of any notice given in electronic or written form shall be admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings relating to the Agreement to the same extent as other business documents and records originally generated and maintained in printed form.
No waiver by Fairville of any term of the Agreement shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or any other term, and Fairville's failure to assert any right or provision under these Terms and Conditions shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
20. Modification of Terms and Conditions
Fairville reserves the right to amend the Agreement at any time. We therefore encourage and urge you to regularly check the Agreement for any changes. Your access to the Website and/or use of the Services following any amendment of the Agreement will signify your acceptance of its revised terms.
Fairville shall not be liable for any failure to perform its obligations hereunder where such failure results from any cause beyond Fairville's reasonable control, including, without limitation, mechanical, electronic or communications failure or degradation (including "line-noise" interference). No agency, partnership, joint venture, or employment relationship is created as a result of the Agreement or you accessing the Website and/or using the Services.
Where Fairville makes available a translation of the English language version of the Agreement, you agree that the translation is provided for your convenience only and that the English language versions of the Agreement will govern your relationship with Fairville and that, in the event of any contradiction or discrepancy between the English language version of the Agreement and a translation, the English language version shall take precedence.
