6.1.2 to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, the Appstore Provider will have no other obligation with respect to the App and is not responsible for any claims you have from your use of the App or any third party claim that the App infringes that third party’s intellectual property rights; and

6.1.3 the Appstore Provider is a third party beneficiary of this EULA and, upon your acceptance of this EULA, the Appstore Provider will have the right as third party beneficiary to enforce this EULA against you.

7. INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS

7.1 You acknowledge and agree that all intellectual property rights in the App, the Documents and the Services throughout the world belong to us (or our licensors) and that rights in the App and Documents are licensed (not sold) to you. You have no intellectual property rights in, or to, the App, the Documents or the Services other than the right to use them in accordance with this EULA.

7.2 You acknowledge and agree that none of the trademarks used in the App, the Documents or the Services may be copied, imitated, or used, in whole or in part, without our prior written consent.

8. OUR RESPONSIBILITY FOR LOSS OR DAMAGE SUFFERED BY YOU

8.1 You acknowledge that the data and information that we use in the App are derived from third party sources. The App, Documents and Services are provided “as is” and we make no promise nor do we give any warranty (being a legally binding promise), condition or guarantee regarding their accuracy and completeness. We do not warrant that the data produced by the App and the Services will be error-free or that such errors will be corrected. We shall not be liable for any loss that results from errors or omissions in the data used in the App and Services, or from conclusions drawn from the use of such data. The App, Documents and Services are not intended to amount to advice on which reliance should be placed and you acknowledge that you will not rely on the App, Documents and Services in a business-critical manner and that we may withdraw them at any time. We therefore disclaim all liability and responsibility arising from any reliance placed on such information by you or by anyone else. We make no representations, warranties or guarantees, whether express or implied that the content on the App is accurate, complete or up-to-date or as to its merchantability, title, non-infringement, compatibility, security, accuracy, completeness, sufficiency, availability, adequacy, quality, reliability or fitness for any particular purpose of the content available or created through, published or incorporated or made available, on or through the App.

8.2 To the extent permitted by law, we, other members of our group of companies and third parties connected to us expressly exclude all conditions, warranties, representations and other terms which might otherwise apply (whether express or implied) by statute, common law or the law of equity.

8.3 You acknowledge that the App has not been developed to meet your individual requirements, and that it is therefore your responsibility to ensure that the facilities and functions of the App as described in the Documents meet your requirements.

8.4 You agree not to use the App and Documents for any resale purposes, to provide or obtain investment advice and we have no liability to you for any third party claim (including negligence), loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity arising from any such use.

8.5 If we fail to comply with this EULA, we shall not be liable to you for any loss that you suffer as a result of our failure to comply (whether arising in contract, tort or delict (including negligence), breach of statutory duty or otherwise) which are a foreseeable consequence of such failure. We will not be liable for any indirect or consequential losses (including, without limitation, loss of goodwill, reputation, business opportunity, anticipated savings) however arising (including that result from our failure to comply with this EULA) or for loss of income or revenue; loss of business; loss of profits; loss or corruption of data; or waste of management or office time.

8.6 Nothing in this EULA shall restrict your statutory rights, nor shall anything in this EULA exclude or limit our liability for death or personal injury resulting from our negligence or from any fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation nor any other liability which cannot be excluded or limited under applicable law.

9. WE MAY END YOUR RIGHTS TO USE THE APP AND THE SERVICES

IF YOU BREACH THESE TERMS

9.1 We may end or terminate your right to use the App and/or the Services immediately by contacting you if you have committed a breach of these terms in a serious way (including if you breach any of the Licence Restrictions or the Acceptable Use Restrictions). If what you have done can be fixed or remedied, we will give you a reasonable opportunity to do so.

9.2 As we offer the App for free, we may withdraw it at any time without notice to you.

9.3 If we end your right to use the App and Services for any reason:

9.3.1 all rights granted to you under this EULA shall end (including the licence granted herein);

9.3.2 you must immediately stop all activities authorised by this EULA, including your use of the App and any Services; and

9.3.3 you must immediately delete or remove the App from all Devices, and immediately destroy all copies of the App and Documents then in your possession, custody or control and confirm to us that you have done so if we require such confirmation.

10. COMMUNICATION BETWEEN US

10.1 If you wish to contact us in writing (including with complaints or giving notice), you can email us at editor@africaprivateequitynews.com. We will confirm receipt of this, normally by email.

10.2 If we have to contact you (including giving notice), we will send a push notification or email, using the contact details you have provided to us.

11. EVENTS OUTSIDE OUR CONTROL

11.1 If our provision of the App or Services or support for the App or the Services is delayed by an event outside our control (including the failure of telecommunications networks) then we will use reasonable endeavours to contact you to let you know and we will take steps to minimise the effect of the delay. We will not be liable for delays caused by the event and if there is a risk of substantial delay you may contact us to end this EULA.

12. OTHER IMPORTANT TERMS

12.1 We may transfer our rights and obligations under this EULA to another organisation, but this will not affect your rights under this EULA.

12.2 You may only transfer your rights or obligations under this EULA to another person if we agree in writing.

12.3 Even if we delay in enforcing this EULA, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under this EULA, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaching this EULA, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date.

12.4 Each of the conditions of this EULA operates separately. If any court or competent authority decides that any of them are unlawful or unenforceable, the remaining conditions will remain in full force and effect.

12.5 The terms of this EULA are governed by the laws of the Republic of South Africa and the courts of the Republic of South Africa will have non-exclusive jurisdiction.
