These Terms of Use are governed by and shall be construed in accordance with the laws of Ireland and all disputes shall be submitted to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Irish courts. 

This agreement commences on the date you first access the site and accept the Terms of Use, and will continue in force until terminated by either us or you. 

This agreement and any right you may have under this agreement will come to an end immediately without any notice from us if in our sole discretion you do not comply with any term or provision of this agreement.

You may not assign, transfer, or novate any of these Terms of Use, in whole or in part, to any third party and any attempt by you to do so shall be invalid. 

Should any part of these Terms of Use be held invalid or unenforceable, that portion will be construed in a manner which is consistent with applicable law and the remaining portions will remain in full force and effect. 

Our failure to enforce any provision of these Terms of Use will not be considered a waiver of the right to enforce such provision. 

These Terms of Use constitute the entire and only agreement between you and us, and supersede all other agreements, representations, warranties, and understandings that relate to the subject matter of these Terms of Use.
