1. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY.
SOME COUNTRIES DO NOT ALLOW THE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY IN CONTRACTS WITH CONSUMERS AND AS A RESULT THE CONTENTS OF THIS SECTION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
Neither Globechain nor any of our subsidiaries, affiliated companies, employees, shareholders, or directors (“Globechain Affiliates”) shall be cumulatively liable for (a) any damages in excess of three times the most recent annual fee that you paid for a Membership Service, if any, or £100, whichever amount is greater, or (b) any special, incidental, indirect, punitive or consequential damages or loss of use, profit, revenue or data to you or any third person arising from your use of the Service, any platform applications or any of the content or other materials on, accessed through or downloaded from Globechain. This limitation of liability is part of the basis of the bargain between the parties and without it the terms and prices charged would be different. This limitation of liability shall:
A. Apply regardless of whether (1) you base your claim on contract, tort, statute or any other legal theory, (2) we knew or should have known about the possibility of such damages, or (3) the limited remedies provided in this section fail of their essential purpose; and
B. Not apply to any damage that Globechain may cause you intentionally or knowingly in violation of this Agreement or applicable law, or as otherwise mandated by applicable law that cannot be disclaimed from in this Agreement.
C. Not apply if you have entered into a separate agreement to purchase Membership Services with a separate Limitation of Liability provision that supersedes this section in relation to those Membership Services.
D. Globechain.com is not liable for any indirect loss, consequential loss, loss of profits, revenue, data or goodwill howsoever arising suffered by any User arising in any way in connection with this Agreement or any Transaction or any use of the Globechain.com Website or for any wasted management time, misrepresentation, failure to make anticipated savings or liability of the User to any third party arising in any way in connection with this Agreement or any use of the Globechain.com Website or otherwise whether or not such loss has been discussed by the parties pre-contract or for any account for profit, costs or expenses arising from such damage or loss.
E. Whilst Globechain.com will make all reasonable attempts to exclude viruses from the Globechain.com Website, it cannot ensure such exclusion and no liability is accepted for viruses. Thus, the User is recommended to take all appropriate safeguards before downloading Information from the Globechain.com Website.
F. Globechain.com shall not be liable for ensuring that the Information on the Globechain.com Website is not Unacceptable and the Recipient in obtaining any Material from a Giver via the Globechain.com Website accepts that it does so exclusively at its own risk.
G. Globechain.com is not liable for any failure in respect of its obligations hereunder which result directly or indirectly from failure or interruption in software or services provided by third parties.
H. Globechain.com provides a platform for Users to recycle / re-use goods and has no control over or responsibility for the quality, safety, or legality of such goods or the ability of a Giver to convey good title to such goods.
I. Each User hereby acknowledges that Globechain.com is not and cannot be responsible for the behaviour of other Users or the quality or legality of goods offered by other Users. Without prejudice to the generality of the foregoing, such behaviour may include fraud or misrepresentation.
J. Globechain.com is not responsible for the direct or indirect consequences of a User linking to any other website from the Globechain.com Website.
K. None of the clauses herein shall apply so as to restrict liability for death or personal injury resulting from the negligence of Globechain.com or its appointed agents.
A. Mutual rights of termination.
You may terminate this Agreement, for any or no reason, at any time, with notice to Globechain. This notice will be effective upon Globechain processing your notice. Globechain may terminate the Agreement and your account for any reason or no reason, at any time, with or without notice. This cancellation shall be effective immediately or as may be specified in the notice. For avoidance of doubt, only Globechain or the party paying for the services may terminate your access to any Membership Services. Termination of your Globechain account includes disabling your access to Globechain and may also bar you from any future use of Globechain.
A. Misuse of the Services.
Globechain may restrict, suspend or terminate the account of any User who abuses or misuses the Services. Misuse of the Services includes inviting other Users with whom you do not know to connect; abusing the Globechain messaging services; creating multiple or false profiles; using the Services commercially without Globechain’s authorisation, infringing any intellectual property rights, violating any of the Do’s and Don’ts listed in Section 9, or any other behaviour that Globechain, in its sole discretion, deems contrary to its purpose. In addition, and without limiting the foregoing, Globechain has adopted a policy of terminating accounts of Users who, in Globechain’s sole discretion, are deemed to be repeat infringers under the United Kingdom Copyright Act.
A. Effect of Termination.
Upon the termination of your Globechain account, you lose access to the Services. The terms of this Agreement shall survive any termination, except Sections 3 (“Your Rights”) and 4.a-b, and d (“Our Rights and Obligations”) hereof.
1. GENERAL TERMS.
If any provision of this Agreement is found by a court of competent jurisdiction or arbitrator to be illegal, void, or unenforceable, the unenforceable provision will be modified so as to render it enforceable and effective to the maximum extent possible in order to effect the intention of the provision; and if a court or arbitrator finds the modified provision invalid, illegal, void or unenforceable, the validity, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions of this Agreement will not be affected in any way.
A. Entire Agreement.
You agree that this Agreement constitutes the entire, complete and exclusive agreement between you and us regarding the Services and supersedes all prior agreements and understandings, whether written or oral, or whether established by custom, practice, policy or precedent, with respect to the subject matter of this Agreement. You also may be subject to additional terms and conditions that may apply when you use or purchase certain other Globechain services, third-party content or third party software.
A. Amendments to this Agreement.
A. No informal waivers, agreements or representations.
Our failure to act with respect to a breach of this Agreement by you or others does not waive our right to act with respect to that breach or subsequent similar or other breaches.

A. No Injunctive Relief.
In no event shall you seek or be entitled to rescission, injunctive or other equitable relief, or to enjoin or restrain the operation of the Service, exploitation of any advertising or other materials issued in connection therewith, or exploitation of the Services or any content or other material used or displayed through the Services.
A. Assignment and Delegation.
You may not assign or delegate any rights or obligations under the Agreement. Any purported assignment and delegation shall be ineffective. We may freely assign or delegate all rights and obligations under the Agreement, fully or partially without notice to you. We may also substitute, by way of unilateral novation, effective upon notice to you, Globechain Corporation for any third party that assumes our rights and obligations under this Agreement.
A. Potential Other Rights and Obligations.
You may have rights or obligations under local law other than those enumerated here if you are located outside the United Kingdom.
This written Agreement and any other expressly incorporated document constitute the entire agreement between the parties hereto relating to the subject matter hereof and neither party has relied on any representation made by the other party unless such representation is expressly included herein. Nothing in this Clause shall relieve either party of liability for fraudulent misrepresentations and neither party shall be entitled to any remedy for either any negligent or innocent misrepresentation except to the extent (if any) that a court or arbitrator may allow reliance on the same as being fair and reasonable.
