You hereby warrant that you have the right to use all such information and material.

    4.6   Whilst TPN aims to publish all Your Submissions on the Website, TPN reserves the right to refuse or remove any such publication whether wholly or partly if TPN has reason to believe that your use of the Services and/or the Website breaches these Terms.

    5.2   In addition to any TPN rights of termination outlined in Section B, C or D, TPN shall be entitled to suspend and/or terminate your access and use of the Website and/or the Services:

    5.3   Upon termination of your Contract in accordance with clause 5.1 or clause 5.2, you are no longer a User of the Services and the Website and therefore shall have no access to them. TPN shall remove all information available on your Profile including without limitation Your Submissions to the extent that TPN is not bound by any existing law and legislation to retain such information.

    6   WARRANTIES AND LIABILITIES

    6.1   You hereby warrant that (a) you have the right and capacity to enter into and be bound by these Terms; and (b) you shall comply with all applicable laws regarding your use of the Services and the Website.

    6.2   TPN relies on other service providers (such as network provider, data centres, telecommunication providers) to make the Services and the Website available to you. Whilst TPN takes all reasonable steps available to it to provide you with a good level of service, TPN does not guarantee that such service shall be fault free or uninterrupted at all times. TPN therefore shall not be liable in any way for any losses you may suffer as a result of delays or failures of the Services and Website as a result of TPN's service providers.

    6.3   TPN does not have any control in respect of the content uploaded on the Website and therefore does not vet, verify the accuracy, correctness and completeness, monitor, edit or modify any of the content on the Website (including Your Submissions) to determine whether they may result in any liability either to you or to any third party. Consequently, all information and content available on the Website is provided to you "as is" and you agree that any use made by you of such content shall be strictly at your own risk. We recommend that you do not rely on such information in making or refraining from making a decision or to embark on a specific course of action.

    6.4   TPN does not in any way participate in nor shall it be liable in any way for whatsoever reason for any communication, transaction, meet-ups, set-ups or any relationship between you and other Users. TPN therefore recommends that you take all safety precautions when contacting, socialising, and engaging in any business transactions or business or social gatherings and meetings with other Users.

    6.5   TPN may display links to third party websites and third party advertising banners on the Website. However, TPN shall not be responsible and does not accept any liability for the content and your use of such third party links and advertising banners.

    6.6   Nothing in these Terms shall serve to limit or exclude you and TPN's liability for death or personal injury resulting from your or TPN's negligence or any liability for fraudulent misrepresentation.

    7   INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS

    7.1   TPN and its licensors own all rights in the intellectual property rights relating to the Services and the Website. Those works are protected by copyright laws and treaties around the world. All such rights are reserved.

    8   COMPLAINTS

    8.1   If you wish to lodge a complaint about another User for breaching any of these Terms and in particular, the terms under clause 4 or any other aspect of the Website, you may do so by sending TPN details of your complaint by using the "Contact Us" form available on the Website. TPN will use its reasonable endeavours to respond to your complaints within a reasonable time and to take reasonable action which it deems appropriate to resolve or rectify the subject matter of such complaints.

    9   DATA PROTECTION AND PRIVACY POLICY

    9.2   TPN processes your personal data (as such term is defined in the Data Protection Act 1998) in accordance with its standard Privacy Policy which is accessible on the Website.

    10   GENERAL

    10.1   If TPN fails at any time to insist upon strict performance of its obligations under these Terms, or if it fails to exercise any of the rights or remedies to which it is entitled to under these Terms, this will not constitute a waiver of any such rights or remedies and shall not relieve you from compliance with such obligations.

    10.2   A waiver by TPN of any default shall not constitute a waiver of any subsequent default.

    10.3   No waiver by TPN of any of these Terms shall be effective unless it is expressly stated to be a waiver and is communicated to you in writing.

    10.4   All notification and communication to TPN should be sent to the contact details made available to you on the Website.

    10.5   If any of these Terms are determined by any competent authority to be invalid, unlawful or unenforceable to any extent, such term, condition or provision will to that extent, be severed from the remaining terms, conditions and provisions which shall continue to be valid to the fullest extent permitted by law.

    10.6   These Terms represent the entire agreement between you and TPN in respect of your use of the Website and shall supersede any prior agreement, understanding or arrangement between us, whether oral or in writing.

    10.7   You acknowledge that in entering into these Terms, you have not relied on any representations, undertaking or promise given by or implied from anything said or written whether on the Website, the Internet or in negotiation between us except as expressly set out in these Terms.

    10.9   These Terms shall be governed by and construed in accordance with English law and the English courts shall have exclusive jurisdiction. If you live outside the UK, English law shall apply only to the extent that it does not deprive you of any legal protection accorded under the law of the place where you are habitually resident. If English law deprives you of any legal protection which is accorded to you under your local law, these terms will be governed by your local law and any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with these Terms shall be subject to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the courts where you are habitually resident.

Changes outside of the aforementioned 24 hour period are subject to TPN’s written approval and at their sole discretion.
