22.1 You must, and must make sure that your officers, employees, agents and service providers: (i) at all times comply with all anti-corruption Laws applicable to you; and (ii) not, directly or indirectly offer, promise or give (or agree to offer, promise or give) any financial or other advantage with respect to any matters which are the subject of the Agreement or obtain any benefit for us which would violate any anti-corruption laws applicable to you or us.
22.2 If you become aware or suspect that this paragraph 22 has been broken, you must tell us straight away. We may immediately suspend operation of the Agreement on written notice to you, pending investigation. You must assist us in any such investigation.
22.3 If, in our reasonable opinion, you have broken this paragraph 22: (i) we may immediately cancel the Agreement by giving you written notice; and (ii) you will reimburse us and Our Representatives in full for any damage, loss, liabilities, fees and expenses that we or they suffer (including any claims brought against us or them by third parties) as a result.
23. Contractual Authority
23.1 You confirm that:
(i) you have the authority to enter into the Agreement on your own behalf and on behalf of the business you represent (if any); and
(ii) you are over eighteen (18) years of age.
24. Other Important Terms
24.1 Each of the paragraphs of the Terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful or unenforceable, the remaining provisions will remain in full force and effect.
24.2 We may transfer our rights and promises under an Agreement to another organisation. We will tell you if this happens.
24.3 Each party agrees that in entering into the Agreement it has not relied on, and shall have no remedy in respect of, any statement, representation, warranty or understanding (whether negligently or innocently made) of any person (whether party to the Agreement or not) other than as expressly set out in the Agreement for which its sole remedy shall be for breach of contract under the terms of the Agreement. Nothing in this paragraph 24 shall, however, operate to limit or exclude any liability for fraud.
24.4 A person who is not a party to the Agreement shall have no right under the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 to enforce any of its terms. We contract in our own name, on our own behalf and for the benefit of hibu (UK) Limited and Our Representatives. Each of Our Representatives shall be entitled to enforce the terms of this Agreement in its own right.
24.5 By entering into the Agreement, you personally and individually undertake and assume, jointly and severally with the business you represent (if any), the full performance of the Agreement including payment of amounts due under the Agreement.
24.6 If we do not enforce our rights against you, or if we delay in doing so, that will not mean that we have waived our rights against you.
24.7 All references in the Agreement to “written” or “writing” will include email unless stated otherwise.
24.8 The Agreement contains the whole agreement between you and us and replaces any other agreement or communication between you and us relating to the Services (including any communications made on or via the Websites). You acknowledge that you have entered into the Agreement without relying on any previous statement or promises made by us, unless those statements or promises have been included in the Agreement. However, this paragraph 24.7 does not in any way limit our liability for making fraudulent statements in connection with the Services or otherwise.
24.9 We are not in any kind of partnership, contract of employment or joint venture with you. Nothing in the Agreement will be taken as authorising you to act as our agent.
24.10 We may disclose to third parties any address at which you conduct business and which is known to us, whether or not the same is displayed on your website. You consent to such disclosure.
24.11 The Agreement will be governed by English law and we both agree that the Courts of England and Wales will have exclusive jurisdiction. This means that any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with the Services or the Agreement (including non-contractual disputes or claims), will be governed by English law, and any claim must be brought before a Court located in England or Wales.
24.12 In any legal proceedings, both parties agree to waive any rights they may have to participate in any class, group or representative proceeding and both parties agree to waive any right they may have to a trial by jury.
