5. ROUTER

5.1 For the Initial Period and any subsequent period of 12 months purchased pursuant to clause 3.1 Boosty will provide you with a Router in order to access the Service. This Router shall belong to Boosty for this period and will be replaced by us upon request in the event of any defect. On the second anniversary of the date of the Confirmation ownership of such Router will transfer to you and thereafter you will be responsible for your access to the Service.

15.1 You acknowledge that the Service, including the Router, 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 Service meet your requirements.

17. EVENTS OUTSIDE OUR CONTROL

17.1 We will not be liable or responsible for any failure to perform, or delay in performance of, any of our obligations under a contract that is caused by an act or event beyond our reasonable control, including the cancellation or withdrawal of any service provided by a third party which may affect the way the Service is provided or the removal of any part of the Service from an app store. Such removal of any part of the Service from an app store shall not constitute a material breach of the contract.
17.2 If an event beyond our reasonable control takes place that affects the performance of our obligations under the Terms we will contact you as soon as reasonably possible to notify you and our obligations under a contract will be suspended and the time for performance of our obligations will be extended for the duration of such an event.

18. OTHER IMPORTANT TERMS

18.1 We may from time to time change these Terms regarding how we accept payment from you or to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements. If we make any changes we will give you at least one month’s written notice of such changes before they take effect.

18.4 This contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms.
18.5 Each of the paragraphs of these Terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful or unenforceable, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
18.6 If we fail to insist that you perform any of your obligations under these Terms, or 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 and will not mean that you do not have to comply with those obligations. If we do waive a default by you, we will only do so in writing, and that will not mean that we will automatically waive any later default by you.
18.7 These Terms are governed by English law.

You and we both agree that the courts of England and Wales will have non-exclusive jurisdiction.
