GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS SALES OF GOODS
1. These “General Terms and Conditions of Sale” (“GTCS”) apply to all contracts of sale of goods between (i) Disguise Technologies Limited and, where applicable, any of its subsidiaries (together, “Disguise”) and (ii) the customer (“Customer”) other than in respect of goods and/or services purchased on Disguise’s website where such other terms shall apply as Disguise determines from time to time. No deviation from or amendment to the GTCS shall be binding on Disguise unless agreed in writing between Disguise and the Customer. Disguise and the Customer may also be referred to as a “Party” or collectively as the “Parties”. The term “goods” shall mean any goods ordered by the Customer from Disguise pursuant to the provision of the GTCS.
2. Any terms and conditions contained in or delivered with the Customer’s order or other document or any which are implied by trade, custom, practice or course of dealing shall not be binding, and the Customer waives any right, which it otherwise might have to rely on such terms and conditions.
QUOTATIONS, ORDERS AND ORDER CONFIRMATIONS
3. Disguise may provide a quotation to a Customer upon request and such quotation may be delivered to the Customer by email (“Quotation”). Quotations are only valid for 30 days from the date of the Quotation unless otherwise specified by Disguise from time to time. A Quotation shall not constitute an offer.
4. The Customer may place any order(s) by email to Disguise in respect of such Quotation in accordance with clause 3 and Disguise shall, if accepted by Disguise in accordance with clause 5, provide the goods to the Customer as per the details (including price) contained in such Quotation (save for manifest error) in accordance with the GTCS.
5. An order shall only be deemed accepted if Disguise’s Customer Management department issues written confirmation of the acceptance of such order(s) to the Customer within 15 business days of the date of receipt of such order(s) (“Order Acknowledgement”). The contract for the sale and purchase of the goods pursuant to the Order Acknowledgement shall only come into existence at the point when such Order Acknowledgement is issued by Disguise to the Customer.
6. If the terms and conditions in Disguise’s Order Acknowledgement deviate from the Customer’s order(s) and the Customer wants to reject such deviation(s), the Customer must notify Disguise’s Customer Management department in writing by email to that effect at the earlier of either of the following: (i) within 5 business days of the date of receipt of the Order Acknowledgement, and (ii) prior to the packaging date of the goods, failing which the Customer shall be deemed to have accepted the terms and conditions set out in the Order Acknowledgement.
DELIVERY, TRANSFER OF RISKS
7. The Order Acknowledgment shall state whether the method of delivery is “Collection” or “Delivery to Customer”, and the date or dates for delivery (the “Delivery Date(s)”).
8. Where the method of delivery is Collection:
a) the Customer or their nominated courier or agent shall collect the goods from the location or locations specified in the Order Acknowledgment (“Collection Location”) on the Delivery Date(s), or otherwise within three days of Disguise notifying the Customer that the goods are ready;
b) Delivery is completed on the completion of loading of the goods at the Collection Location, subject to clause 11.
9. Where the method of delivery is Delivery to Customer:
a) Disguise shall arrange for a carrier to deliver the goods to the location set out in the Order Acknowledgment or such other location as the parties may agree (the “Delivery Location”) on the Delivery Date(s);
b) The Customer is responsible for the costs of any carrier procured by Disguise;
c) Delivery is completed on the completion of unloading of the goods at the Delivery Location, subject to clause 11.
10. Any dates quoted for delivery are approximate only, and the time of delivery is not of the essence. Disguise shall not be liable for any delay in delivery of the goods that is caused by a Force Majeure Event (as defined in clause 49) or the Customer's failure to provide Disguise with adequate delivery instructions or any other instructions that are relevant to the supply of the goods.
11. If the Customer fails to take or accept delivery on the Delivery Date (“Customer Acceptance Failure”) then delivery is deemed to have occurred on the Delivery Date. The Customer shall be liable for payment, if applicable, for the cost of storage of these goods at Disguise’s warehouse or courier’s warehouse, and for any other reasonable costs or expenses, incurred by Disguise, due to the Customer Acceptance Failure, and Disguise reserves the right to sell the goods to a third party and to claim damages against the Customer for loss of profit and any costs incurred by the Customer Acceptance Failure.
12. Risk in the goods passes to the Customer as follows:
a) where the method of delivery is “Collection”, on completion of delivery.
b) where the method of delivery is “Delivery to the Customer”, at the point at which the goods are handed to the courier.
13. The Customer is responsible for, and must pay: (i) all costs relating to the goods from the time of deemed delivery in accordance with clause 8 or clause 9, as applicable; (ii) all duties taxes, levies and other customs charges, as well as the costs of carrying out any customs formalities payable upon import and/or export; and (iii) the reimbursement of all costs and charges incurred by Disguise in assisting the Customer to obtain any export licence or other official authorisation for the export of the goods.
14. If the goods are transported from Disguise’s warehouse by any carrier (whether organised by Disguise or the Customer), the Customer must, when the goods arrive at the destination, in order to get the goods released by the carrier sign the accompanying delivery note. If any goods are visibly damaged, the Customer must give details thereof on the delivery note and must file a claim with the carrier and with Disguise in writing via email to Disguise’s Customer Management department within 24 hours, failing which the Customer shall be deemed to have waived any rights which the Customer might have in respect of the damaged goods.
15. The Customer must thoroughly examine all goods immediately upon receipt for the purpose of ascertaining whether the goods are defective or inconsistent with the data in the Order Acknowledgement (the “Examination”). The Customer shall be deemed to have accepted the goods in respect of inconsistency with the specification in the Order Acknowledgement, which the Customer discovered or ought to have discovered during the Examination, if the Customer has not notified Disguise’s Customer Management department to the contrary in writing via email within 5 business days after delivery.
16. Should Disguise not be able to deliver by the Delivery Date, Disguise shall as soon as possible notify the Customer to that effect and at the same time state when delivery is expected to take place. If delivery is expected to take place more than, or has not taken place within, 14 business days after the Delivery Date, and the delay is caused by circumstances for which Disguise is responsible, the Customer shall be entitled to reject the goods by notifying Disguise’s Customer Management department to that effect in writing via email within 3 business days after receipt of Disguise’s notification or the expiration of the 14 business days, whichever comes first, failing which notification by the Customer, the Customer shall be deemed to have waived the right to reject the goods. Except as stated in this clause 16, the Customer is not entitled to raise any other claims in the event of delayed delivery, whether claims for damages based on contract/negligent acts/omissions or otherwise. Any liability for delay or failure to deliver to the Customer shall not exceed the cost of the goods to Disguise.
WARRANTY, PRODUCT LIABILITY
17. Subject to clauses 18-26, Disguise warrants the following:
a) All finished hardware goods manufactured by Disguise will be free from defects in materials and workmanship under normal use of the goods in the industry for a period of 24 months from the Delivery Date, whilst accessories, spare parts, and ‘b stock’ goods will be free from defects in materials and workmanship under normal use of the spare parts in the industry for a period of 12 months from the Delivery Date. Disguise warrants to be able to deliver spare parts only during the warranty terms of the finished goods stated in this clause 17.
b) All certified pre-owned goods will be free from defects in materials and workmanship under normal use of the goods in the industry for a period of 90 days from the Delivery Date.
c) Any software supplied by Disguise in connection with the goods (the “Software”) is provided “as is” without warranty of any kind, express or implied, including but not limited to warranties of performance, merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, accuracy, omissions, completeness, currentness and delays. The Customer agrees that outputs from the Software will not, under any circumstances, be considered legal or professional advice and are not meant to replace the experience and sound professional judgment of professional advisors in full knowledge of the circumstances and details of any matter on which advice is sought.
18. (a) All finished hardware goods classed as “media servers” will be fitted with a tamper proof label. The removal of this label without express permission from the Disguise Technical Support and Service department will render the warranty null and void. (b) Any warranty claim by Customer based on any defect in finished goods or spare parts, which defect the Customer discovered or ought to have discovered during the Examination, shall be notified in writing via email to Disguise within 5 business days after the delivery time as stated in the Order Acknowledgement or, where the defect could not reasonably have been discovered during the Examination within 7 business days after manifestation of the defect, failing which the Customer shall be deemed to have accepted the finished goods or spare parts as non-defective. Warranty claims notified by the Customer to Disguise after the expiration of the warranty terms stated in in the GTCS are not accepted.
19. Where any valid warranty claim is notified to Disguise in accordance with the terms of clause 18 and approved by Disguise in writing (which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld), Disguise shall be entitled to fulfill its warranty obligations as follows: (i) If the Customer can be reasonably expected to be able to repair the defect, if necessary with support from Disguise’s Technical Support and Service department, Disguise may fulfill its warranty obligations by sending the necessary replacement parts to Customer free of charge along with a replacement tamperproof label; (ii) If the Customer cannot reasonably be expected to be able to repair the defect, Disguise shall repair or replace and add a new tamperproof label to the defective finished goods or spare parts, subject to the Customer (a) assigning to Disguise all property rights to such redundant finished goods or spare parts and (b) complying, if applicable, with any reasonable request by Disguise for the Customer to return the goods and/or parts in question to Disguise. Any replacement goods or spare parts will be a) equivalent or substantially similar to the finished goods or spare parts and b) new, equivalent to new or re-conditioned; or (iii) If none of the foregoing remedies are commercially viable in Disguise’s sole judgment, Disguise may opt instead to refund to Customer the net purchase price paid by Customer for the defective finished goods or spare parts less reasonable depreciation of the value due to use or age, subject to the Customer assigning to Disguise all property rights to such finished goods or spare parts. The Customer shall have no right to use, modify or sell any redundant finished goods or spare parts that have been replaced (“Redundant Item”). The Customer shall communicate with Disguise’s Customer Management to seek direction as to how to deal with any such Redundant Item within 10 business days of the Redundant Item being replaced. The Customer shall at the direction of Disguise either (i) return to Disguise any Redundant Item; or (ii) or destroy the same. The Customer shall not return such Redundant Item to Disguise, unless Disguise has authorised the return in writing. The Customer shall assume responsibility (including all costs and expenses) for shipment, freight and adequate freight insurance back to a Disguise certified service centre. Disguise shall only assume responsibility for shipment and expense for freight and freight insurance back to the customers registered address in country of origin of the warranty claim, unless the warranty claim is not valid in Disguise’s reasonable judgment and Customer shall assume all responsibility and expense for dismantling, removal, re-installation and duties in connection with the foregoing. Repair or replacement under the warranties contained herein does not interrupt or extend the warranty terms stated in clause 17.
20. The warranties contained herein shall not extend to any finished goods or spare parts from which any serial number has been removed or which have been damaged or rendered defective (a) as a result of normal wear and tear, willful or accidental damage, negligence, misuse or abuse; (b) due to water or moisture, lightning, windstorm, abnormal voltage, harmonic distortion, dust, dirt, corrosion or other external causes; (c) by operation outside the specifications contained in the user documentation; (d) by the use of spare parts not manufactured or sold by Disguise or by the connection or integration of other equipment or software not approved by Disguise unless the Customer provides acceptable proof to Disguise that the defect or damage was not caused by the above; (e) by modification, repair or service by anyone other than Disguise, who has not applied for and been approved by Disguise to do such modification, repair or service unless the Customer provides acceptable proof to Disguise that the defect or damage was not caused by the above; (f) due to procedures, deviating from procedures specified by Disguise; or (g) due to failure to store, move, transport, install, test, commission, maintain, operate or use finished goods or spare parts in accordance with Disguise’s instructions and training, in a safe and reasonable manner or in a manner that does not provide at least the degree of protection afforded by Disguise branded storage, transportation and installation equipment, including but not limited to transportation cases and folding transportable rigs, in terms of shock absorption and protection from vibration for the product and all its components, impact protection, ingress protection, protection from unfavorable environmental conditions, thermal insulation and strength. All approvals and certifications related to goods are related to a single product and not a group of products used together.
21. None of the warranties contained herein shall apply to finished goods or spare parts which are sold “as is”, as “second-hand”, as “used”, as “demo” or under similar qualifications or to Consumables as defined in clause 22.
22. “Consumables” is defined as any part(s) of goods or part(s) for use with goods, which part(s) of goods or part(s) for use with goods are consumed during the operation of the goods and which part(s) of goods or part(s) for use with goods require replacement from time to time by a user such as, but not limited to, light bulbs and smoke fluid. Disguise will provide information on Consumables when requested to do so by Customer.
23. None of the warranties contained herein shall apply, unless the total purchase price for the defective finished goods or spare parts has been paid by the Customer to Disguise by the due date for payment in accordance with the GTCS.
24. The Customer shall have no other remedies in connection with defective finished goods or spare parts than the rights granted pursuant to clauses 17-23. Except as set forth in the express warranties contained herein, Disguise makes no conditions, warranties, representations, express or implied, in fact or in law, including, but not limited to, any warranties of satisfactory quality, merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose or any warranties arising out of usage or trade, all of which are expressly excluded to the fullest extent permissible by applicable law.
25. The warranties contained herein apply only to the original purchaser and are not assignable or transferable to any subsequent purchaser or end-user.
26. To the extent lawful, Disguise shall only be liable for damage to property and for personal injuries caused as a consequence of defects in the finished goods or spare parts delivered to the extent that it is documented that such defect arose due to Disguise’s negligence that could not have been prevented by the Examination or other examination by the Customer (“Product Liability”).
GLOBAL SUPPORT PACKAGES
27. Any support and maintenance to be provided by Disguise in respect of the Goods shall be as agreed to by the Customer on its order Quotation. In the event that the Customer chooses to ‘opt out’ and/or not ‘opt in’ to any of Disguise’s ‘Premium’ global support packages on its order Quotation, as detailed more fully here, be it for hardware, project support and/or training; Disguise’s ‘Standard’ global support packages shall be offered only, as detailed here.
RETURN OF GOODS, CANCELLATION OF ORDERS
28. Goods may not be returned to Disguise, unless Disguise has authorised the return in writing. Where Disguise has authorised the return of goods, the Customer shall follow the guidelines for returns issued by Disguise from time to time.
29. Any order(s) placed by the Customer which has been accepted by Disguise by the issue of an Order Acknowledgement are binding on the Customer and cannot be cancelled by the Customer unless to the extent that Disguise agrees in writing. Disguise therefore retains the right to charge the Customer in full in respect of any Order Acknowledgement.
30. The purchase price as specified in Disguise’s Order Acknowledgement is payable according to the payment terms specified in the Order Acknowledgement. In the absence of payment terms in the Order Acknowledgement, delivery will, at Disguise´s sole discretion, only take place against prepayment of the purchase price.
PAYMENT, PAYMENT DELAY
31. The purchase price as specified in Disguise’s Order Acknowledgement is payable according to the payment terms specified in the Order Acknowledgement. In the absence of payment terms in the Order Acknowledgement, delivery will, at Disguise´s sole discretion, only take place against prepayment of the purchase price.
32. Disguise does not commit itself to send statements of account, In the event that Disguise does not within 30 calendar days of the date of a statement of account receive an objection in writing against its balance, the statement of account shall be deemed to be conclusive evidence of the Customer’s acceptance of the statement of account.
33. In the event that the Customer should remain in arrears with payments to Disguise for any reason for 10 business days or more, Disguise shall be entitled to: a) Terminate the Order Acknowledgement and/or any other contracts of sale and demand immediate return of all unpaid goods, delivered to the Customer, at the Customer’s expense; b) Suspend delivery of the Order Acknowledgement and/or any other contracts of sale for future delivery; c) Keep any Customer property in Disguise’s possession as a lien against such non-payment; d) Claim interest at the rate of 2% per month or any part thereof, as from the due date and until payment is made; e) Sell the goods to a third party and claim from the Customer damages for any loss suffered; and f) Suspend the Customer’s access to or use of any Software provided with the goods for which there has been no payment, which will result in the relevant goods ceasing to operate correctly or at all. At the reasonable request of the Customer, Disguise shall in writing inform the Customer of its decision to assert any of the above rights, but shall not be required to give any notice.
34. Disguise may use all monies received from the Customer towards payment of any part of any debt owing by the Customer at Disguise’s sole discretion irrespective of any instructions to the contrary by the Customer.
RETENTION OF TITLE
35. Notwithstanding delivery and the passing of risk in the goods, the property rights in the said goods shall pass to the Customer on the later of: (i) completion of delivery in accordance with clause 8 or 9; and (ii) receipt by Disguise in cash or cleared funds payment in full of the purchase price of the said goods and all other goods agreed to be sold by Disguise to the Customer for which payment is then due.
36. Until such time as the property rights in the said goods passes to the Customer, the Customer shall hold the said goods separate from those of the Customer and third parties and properly stored, protected and insured and identified as Disguise’s property, but the Customer may sell or use the goods in the ordinary course of its business.
37. Until such time as the property rights in the said goods passes to the Customer (and provided the said goods are still in existence and have not been resold) Disguise may at any time require the Customer to deliver up the said goods to Disguise and if the Customer fails to do so forthwith enter on any premises of the Customer or any third party where the said goods are stored and repossess the said goods
38. The Customer shall not be entitled to pledge or in any way charge by way of security for any indebtedness any of the said goods, which remain the property of Disguise, but if the Customer does so, all monies owing by the Customer to Disguise shall (without limiting any other rights or remedy of Disguise) forthwith become due and payable.
INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS INFRINGEMENTS
39. To the best of Disguise’s knowledge, goods delivered by Disguise to the Customer do not infringe any third party intellectual property rights. However, Disguise does not make any warranty to that effect. Moreover, Disguise shall have no liability for any claim of infringement, which is based on marketing, distribution or use of the goods other than as authorised by Disguise and in a manner for which they were designed. In the event that goods or any part(s) thereof are held by a court of competent jurisdiction, not subject to appeal, to infringe a third party’s intellectual property right, Disguise shall in its sole discretion (a) procure for the Customer and the Customers‘ customers the right to continue to use the goods; (b) replace the goods with non-infringing goods, subject to the Customer assigning all property rights to such goods to Disguise; (c) modify the goods, or, where modification does not require any special knowledge, provide the Customer with parts enabling it to modify the goods at its own expense, to avoid infringement; or (d) recall the goods. If Disguise decides to recall the goods then Disguise shall, if the goods were delivered to the Customer within the immediately preceding two year period, refund the purchase price for the goods to the Customer less a reasonable depreciation due to age, use, and condition, subject to the Customer assigning all property rights to such goods to Disguise. If the goods were delivered to the Customer before the immediately preceding two-year period, Disguise shall not be obligated to make any refund.
40. The provisions in clause 39 constitute Disguise’s maximum liability in respect of clause 38 herein, and the Customer shall limit its liability towards its customers accordingly.
LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
41. Nothing in the GTCS shall limit or exclude liability of Disguise for (i) death or personal injury as a result of Disguise’s negligence; (ii) fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; or (iii) anything else that may not be limited or excluded by law.
42. Subject to clause 41, in no event shall Disguise be liable in tort, contract or otherwise (including negligence) to compensate the Customer for any: (i) business interruption; (ii) loss of profits; (iii) loss of (anticipated) profits; (iv) loss of revenue; (v) loss of business; (vi) loss of contracts; (vii) loss of savings; (viii) loss of (anticipated) savings; (ix) costs of procurement of substitute goods; (x) costs of procurement of substitute services; (xi) special loss; (xii) indirect loss; (xiii) consequential loss; or (xiv) punitive damages.
43. Subject to clause 41, in no event shall Disguise be liable to compensate the Customer for any contractual liability of the Customer to any third parties.
44. Subject to clause 45, Disguise’s total liability to the Customer in respect of all other losses arising under or in connection with the GTCS, whether in contract, tort (including negligence), breach of statutory duty, or otherwise, shall in no circumstances exceed the amounts received by Disguise from the Customer pursuant to the Order Acknowledgement giving rise to the liability.
45. Disguise’s total liability specifically in respect of Product Liability only shall in no circumstances exceed £5 million in total.
46. The Customer agrees that, subject to clause 41, Disguise shall have no liability to any third party who uses the goods (or any part thereof or any service related to such goods) pursuant to any Order Acknowledgement. If Disguise suffers a loss or any liability towards such third party, except where such loss or liability is caused by the willful default or negligence of Disguise, then the Customer shall indemnify Disguise against all such related liabilities, costs, expenses, damages and losses suffered or incurred by Disguise accordingly (including but not limited to all costs and expenses incurred by Disguise defending any such claim against such third party).
47. The GTCS and all contracts of sale of goods, including but not limited to, any and all Order Acknowledgements, between Disguise and the Customer shall be exclusively governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of England and Wales without application of that country’s conflict of law principles (no renvoi). The Parties submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of English courts except that Disguise - at its sole discretion - shall be entitled alternatively to institute legal proceedings against the Customer at courts having jurisdiction over the Customer’s domicile. If a third party files a claim against one of the Parties for damages on product liability or intellectual property rights infringements, this Party shall immediately inform the other Party thereof. The Parties are mutually obliged to let themselves be summoned to appear before a court of justice/arbitration that hears such claim for damages. The mutual relationship between Disguise and the Customer shall however be resolved in accordance with the provisions of this clause and the remaining relevant provisions of the GTCS.
48. The invalidity, unenforceability or illegality of any term, condition or stipulation in the GTCS shall not affect the validity, enforceability or legality of the remaining terms, conditions and stipulations of the GTCS.
49. Except as provided herein, any required or permitted notices hereunder must be given in writing at the registered address of each Party, or to such other address as either Party may notify to the other Party by written notice in the manner contemplated herein, by one of the following methods: hand delivery, registered mail, or facsimile.
50. Non-performance of either Party shall be excused to the extent that performance is rendered impossible by: acts of God; severe weather; flood; drought; earthquake; or other natural disaster; epidemic; pandemic; terrorist attack; civil war; civil commotion; riots; war; threat of war; preparation for war; armed conflict; imposition of sanctions; embargo; breaking off of diplomatic relations; nuclear; chemical contamination; biological contamination; sonic boom; any law or any action taken by a government or public authority, including imposing an export or import restriction, quota or prohibition, or failing to grant a necessary licence or consent; collapse of buildings; fire; explosion; accident; any labour or trade dispute, strikes, industrial action or lockouts; non-performance by suppliers, carriers or subcontractors; inability to source materials required for the goods; interruption or failure of utility service, for any reason or any other reasons beyond the reasonable control of the non-performing party (“Force Majeure Event”). The non-performing party must notify the other party of the Force Majeure Event and use all reasonable endeavours to mitigate the effect of the Force Majeure Event on the performance of its obligation.
51. The Customer undertakes to Disguise not at any time to disclose to any person any confidential information in respect of Disguise (including but not limited to know-how, trade secrets, and any other commercially sensitive information concerning Disguise) unless (i) required by the law; or (ii) disclosed to the Customer’s employees or consultants subject to the extent that the recipient needs to know such confidential information and that the Customer takes all reasonable steps to make sure that such recipient complies with this confidentiality obligation as though they were a party to the GTCS.
52. Disguise may publicise, advertise and market any work completed under these GTCS on its website(s), social media site(s), blog(s), in pitches to third parties, in connection with any appropriate industry awards, or in any other manner, as Disguise may in its sole discretion decide, without the prior written consent of the Customer.
53. The Customer shall:

c) provide Disguise’s WEEE compliance scheme operator with such data, documents, information and other assistance as such scheme operator may from time to time reasonably require to enable such operator to satisfy the obligations assumed by it as a result of the Disguise’s membership of the operator’s compliance scheme.
54. The Customer shall be responsible for all costs and expenses arising from and relating to its obligations in clause 51.

Unless otherwise mutually agreed in writing, Disguise’s quoted prices are for services and materials requiring standard procedures based upon the use of Disguise facilities and personnel during normal working hours.
3.2 Disguise shall be entitled to make an adjustment to any quoted prices in the event that additional costs are incurred, or likely to be incurred, by reason of:
3.2.1 the Customer Materials (or any part thereof) being, in the reasonable opinion of Disguise, in any way defective, in an unsuitable format (or a different format to that which Disguise is expecting to receive the same) or of unsuitable quality for normal processing;
3.2.2 any information supplied by the Customer or any third party in connection with this Agreement and the Services being inaccurate or incomplete, or failing to give Disguise a full and accurate indication of the work involved and/or time and resources required;
3.2.3 changes by the Customer or any third party in its requirements for the Services or Works;
3.2.4 exceptional circumstances outside the control of Disguise, including currency fluctuations and changes in third party costs; or
3.2.5 failure to timely provide any final instructions or Customer approvals.
3.3 Subject to clause 3.4 and unless otherwise agreed by Disguise in writing, all invoices rendered by Disguise are payable within 28 days of the date of invoice and any interim invoices are payable within 7 days of the date of invoice.
3.4 Disguise expressly reserves the right, at its sole option, to require payment by instalments during the performance of this Agreement and/or to require payment of all amounts due to Disguise in respect of Works to be provided prior to delivery of such Works.
3.5 The Customer shall pay all amounts owing to Disguise in full and shall not exercise any rights of set off or counterclaim against invoices submitted.
3.6 Payment of all amounts shall only be made in the currency in which they are invoiced and shall not be subject to any deductions or charges whatsoever.
3.7 In the event of default in payment by the Customer under this Agreement, Disguise shall be entitled, without prejudice to any of its other rights or remedies, to suspend any further performance of the Services without notice and to charge interest on any amount outstanding at the rate of 4% above the base rate of Royal Bank of Scotland from time to time (accruing from day to day both before and after judgment), from the due date of payment to the actual date of payment. Customer agrees to pay all reasonable costs and expenses (including attorneys’ fees) incurred by Disguise, in connection with the collection of any monies owed by Customer to Disguise.
3.8 All sums payable under this Agreement are exclusive of (a) any sales, use, Value Added Tax, customs, duties, exhibition and any other duty or taxes, imposed by any foreign, federal, state, provincial, municipal or other governmental authority in respect of any item of Work or the Services to be furnished by Disguise to Customer, which shall (if and to the extent applicable) be payable by the Customer at the rate and in the manner from time to time prescribed by law and (b) any freight and delivery charges and any other services that are not expressly included in the applicable Quote or Contract for Services.
3.9 The Customer shall pay any withholding tax or other similar taxes applicable for the Services or otherwise required by law to be deducted from any payment by the Customer to Disguise pursuant to this Agreement. Should the Customer be required to pay any such withholding or make such deduction on account of tax, the Customer shall pay such additional amount as will ensure that Disguise receives, free and clear of any tax or other deduction or withholding, the full amount which it would have received had no such withholding or deduction been required. The Customer shall indemnify Disguise against all costs, claims, expenses (including reasonable legal expenses) and/or proceedings arising out of or in connection with such payments. The Customer and Disguise shall cooperate in good faith to respond to any query from the applicable tax authorities in connection with withholding tax or other similar taxes and shall each make available to the other any information or documents and all relevant approvals or authorisations which the applicable tax authorities may reasonably require.
3.10 Any Customer requests for revisions, additions or deletions to the Services ordered by Customer or changes in the schedule for the Services (collectively, “Modifications”), shall be negotiated in good faith by the parties, and performed in accordance with the terms of one or more mutually agreed additional or updated estimates, bids, work orders, purchase orders, overages, statements of work, Quotes or Contracts for Services, whether by email or in writing (collectively, “Change Order(s)”), each of which shall set forth the Modifications, the increase or decrease, if any, in the compensation to be paid to Disguise occasioned by such Modifications, any changes to the schedule to complete such Modifications and any other proposed changes or known impacts to any other terms, conditions or assumptions in this Agreement, as mutually agreed in writing by the Customer and Disguise.

4.2 Notwithstanding that Disguise and the Customer may have agreed that time is of the essence in respect of specified Services or Works, the time for performance of the Services or delivery of the Works shall in every case be dependent upon prompt receipt of all necessary information, materials (including Customer Materials), final instructions and/or approvals from the Customer.

To the extent required, the parties may agree on terms for the licence of Disguise’s Intellectual Property (or any part of it) incorporated into the Works, to enable the Customer to receive the benefit of the Works.
5.5 The Customer hereby grants to Disguise a perpetual, non-exclusive, transferable, sub-licensable, royalty-free licence to use the Customer Materials to the extent necessary for Disguise and/or its suppliers to provide the Services and the Works.
5.6 The Customer acknowledges and agrees that Intellectual Property Rights in and to underlying materials processed by Disguise in the performance of the Services and/or embodied in the Works may be owned by third parties and that the use by the Customer of the Works shall be subject always to the Customer obtaining any and all necessary licences and consents from the relevant underlying rights’ owner(s).

6.7 On receipt of a written demand, the Customer shall return to Disguise, or destroy at Disguise’s option, any and all written documents or materials containing Confidential Information, together with all copies thereof, and if Disguise should so require the Customer shall, when returning documents or materials, provide to Disguise a certification or statutory declaration duly executed by an officer of the Customer confirming that, to the best of the declarant’s knowledge, information and belief, the Customer has complied with all of its obligations under this clause 6.

7.2 This Agreement (and any Services to be provided under it) may only be cancelled with the written consent of Disguise and in accordance with these Terms (and if applicable, the terms of any subsequent Contract for Services). The giving of consent shall not in any way prejudice Disguise’s right to recover from the Customer full compensation for any loss or expense arising from such cancellation of this Agreement.
7.3 Notwithstanding clause 7.2 and without prejudice to any other rights or remedies available to Disguise, the Customer may give Disguise written notice of cancellation of this Agreement (and any Services to be provided thereunder), provided that where such notice is received by Disguise:

- 8.3.1 any defamatory, slanderous or libelous matter or invasion of privacy or any infringement or alleged infringement of a third party’s Intellectual Property Rights or other rights arising out of the supply or use of the Customer Materials in relation to the Works and/or in the course of carrying out the Services;

Provided we do this we will not be liable for delays caused by the event, but if there is a risk of substantial delay you may contact us to end the contract and receive a refund for any Products you have paid for but not received.
7.4 If no person is available to collect when the Product is delivered. If no one is available at your address to take delivery and the Products cannot be posted through your letterbox, we will leave you a note informing you of how to rearrange delivery or collect the Products from a local depot.
7.5 If you do not re-arrange delivery. If you do not collect the Products from us as arranged or if, after a failed delivery to you, you do not re-arrange delivery or collect them from a delivery depot we will contact you for further instructions and may charge you for storage costs and any further delivery costs. If, despite our reasonable efforts, we are unable to contact you or re-arrange delivery or collection we may end the contract and clause 10.2 will apply.
7.6 When you become responsible for the goods. A Product which is goods will be your responsibility from the time we deliver the Product to the address you gave us or you or a carrier organised by you collect it from us.
7.7 When you own goods. You own a Product which is goods once we have received payment in full.
7.8 What will happen if you do not give required information to us. We may need certain information from you so that we can supply the Products to you. If so, this may have been stated in the description of the Products on our website or subsequently been communicated by us to you. We will contact you to ask for this information. If you do not give us this information within a reasonable time of us asking for it, or if you give us incomplete or incorrect information, we may either end the contract (and clause 10.2 will apply) or make an additional charge of a reasonable sum to compensate us for any extra work that is required as a result. We will not be responsible for supplying the Products late or not supplying any part of them if this is caused by you not giving us the information we need within a reasonable time of us asking for it.
7.9 Reasons we may suspend the supply of Products to you. We may have to suspend the supply of a Product to:
(a) deal with technical problems or make minor technical changes;
(b) update the Product to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements;
(c) make changes to the Product as requested by you or notified by us to you (see clause 6).
7.10 Your rights if we suspend the supply of Products. We will contact you in advance to tell you we will be suspending supply of the Product, unless the problem is urgent or an emergency. If we have to suspend the Product we will adjust the price so that you do not pay for Products while they are suspended. You may contact us to end the contract for a Product if we suspend it, or tell you we are going to suspend it, in each case for a period of more than necessary and we will refund any sums you have paid in advance for the Product in respect of the period after you end the contract.
7.11 We may also suspend supply of the Products if you do not pay. If you do not pay us for the Products when you are supposed to (see clause 14.4), we may suspend supply of the Products until you have paid us the outstanding amounts. We will contact you to tell you we are suspending supply of the Products. As well as suspending the Products we can also charge you interest on your overdue payments (see clause 14.6).

13.2 If you are a consumer customer. You may have additional legal rights to change your mind within 14 days and receive a refund. These rights may be less favourable than our standard returns policy, which will still apply even if you are a consumer.
These additional rights, under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013, are explained in more detail in the following sections. The remaining sections of this clause 13 only apply to consumer customers.
13.3 Exclusions: Your right as a consumer to change your mind does not apply in respect of:

(d) any Products which become mixed inseparably with other items after their delivery;
(e) any Products which are made to your specifications or are clearly personalised.
13.4 The period to change your mind: How long you have to change your mind depends on what you have ordered and how it is delivered.
(a) Services: You have 14 days after the day we email you to confirm we accept your order. However, once we have completed the services you cannot change your mind, even if the period is still running. If you cancel after we have started the services, you must pay us for the services provided up until the time you tell us that you have changed your mind.
(b) Digital content for download or streaming: You have 14 days after the day we email you to confirm we accept your order, or, if earlier, until you start downloading or streaming. Once we have delivered the digital content to you, you will not have a right to change your mind.
(c) Goods: You have 14 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receives the goods, unless:
- Your goods are split into several deliveries over different days. In this case you have until 14 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receives the last delivery.

You must return the goods in person to where you bought them or post them back to us at the address given above or (if they are not suitable for posting) allow us to collect them from you. Please call customer services or email using the details above to arrange a return or collection. You must send off the goods within 14 days of telling us you wish to end the contract.
13.7 Cost of Return or collection.
(a) You must pay the costs of return.
(b) If we agree to collect the Products from you, we will charge you the direct cost to us of collection.
13.8 What and how will we refund you. If you are entitled to a refund under these terms we will refund you the price you paid for the Products including delivery costs, by the method you used for payment. However, we may make deductions from the price, as described below.
13.9 When we may make deduction from refunds.
(a) We may reduce your refund of the price (excluding delivery costs) to reflect any reduction in the value of the goods, if this has been caused by your handling them in a way which would not be permitted in a shop. If we refund you the price paid before we are able to inspect the goods and later discover you have handled them in an unacceptable way, you must pay us an appropriate amount.
(b) The maximum refund for delivery costs will be the costs of delivery by the least expensive delivery method we offer. For example, if we offer delivery of a Product within 3-5 days at one cost but you choose to have the Product delivered within 24 hours at a higher cost, then we will only refund what you would have paid for the cheaper delivery option.
(c) Where the Product is a service, we may deduct from any refund an amount for the supply of the service for the period for which it was supplied, ending with the time when you told us you had changed your mind. The amount will be in proportion to what has been supplied, in comparison with the full coverage of the contract.
13.10 When your refund will be made.
(a) If the Products are goods and we have not offered to collect them, your refund will be made within 14 days from the day on which we receive the Product back from you or, if earlier, the day on which you provide us with evidence that you have sent the Product back to us.
(b) In all other cases, your refund will be made within 14 days of your telling us you have changed your mind
14. PRICE AND PAYMENT
14.1 Where to find the price for the Product. The price of the Product (which excludes VAT and any other sales taxes) will be the price indicated on the order pages when you placed your order. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the price of the Product advised to you is correct. However please see clause 14.3 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the Product you order.
14.2 We will pass on changes in the rate of VAT. If the rate of VAT or other sales charges changes between your order date and the date we supply the Product, we will adjust the rate of VAT that you pay, unless you have already paid for the Product in full before the change in the rate of VAT or sales tax takes effect.
14.3 What happens if we got the price wrong. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Products we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that, where the Product's correct price at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the Product's correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your order. If we accept and process your order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mispricing, we may end the contract, refund you any sums you have paid and require the return of any goods provided to you.
14.4 When you must pay and how you must pay. When you must pay depends on what Product you are buying:
(a) For goods, you must pay for the Products before we dispatch them. We will not charge your credit or debit card until we dispatch the Products to you.
(b) For digital content, depending on which content we agree to provide you, you must pay for the Products either:
- Product before you download them (the purchase order shall set out the duration that you may have access to such Product); or
- on a monthly subscription basis in accordance with clause 14.5.
(c) For services, you must pay for these services before they are delivered, unless as part of a monthly subscription service.
14.5 Monthly subscription. If you have selected to purchase digital content on a monthly subscription basis then:
(a) you shall pay the due amount on a monthly basis in accordance with the any agreed terms (Due Amounts) until you or we terminate the subscription and then, subject to clause 14.5 (e)(i), such service shall terminate at the expiry of the calendar month that you have fully paid for (Termination Date);
(b) you shall remain liable for all outstanding Due Amounts up to the Termination Date together with any outstanding interest amounts as per clause 14.5(e)(i) below;
(c) you shall provide at the point of purchase valid, up-to-date and complete credit card details and any other relevant valid, up-to-date and complete contact and billing details;
(d) you shall authorise us to bill such credit card for the Due Amounts;
(e) you agree that if we have not received payment within 3 days of the due date and without prejudice to any other rights and remedies we may have:
(i) we may, without liability to you, disable your password, account and access to all or part of the services and we shall be under no obligation to provide any or all of the services while any Due Amounts or interest remain outstanding;
(ii) interest shall accrue on a daily basis on such due amounts at an annual rate of 3% over the then current base lending rate of our bankers in the UK from time to time commencing on the due date and continuing until fully repaid;
14.6 No right of set-off. You must pay all amounts due to us under these terms in full without any set-off, counterclaim, deduction or withholding (other than any deduction or withholding of tax as required by law).
14.7 We can charge interest if you pay late. If you do not make any payment to us by the due date we may charge interest to you on the overdue amount at the rate of 5% a year above the base lending rate of Barclays Bank plc from time to time. This interest shall accrue on a daily basis from the due date until the date of actual payment of the overdue amount, whether before or after judgment. You must pay us interest together with any overdue amount.
14.8 What to do if you think an invoice is wrong. If you think an invoice is wrong please contact us promptly to let us know. You will not have to pay any interest until the dispute is resolved. Once the dispute is resolved we will charge you interest on correctly invoiced sums from the original due date.
14.9 Other fees. For all charges for any Products sold on the websites, Disguise or its vendors or agents will bill your credit/debit card or alternative payment method offered by us. You agree to provide valid and updated payment information and you agree to pay all such charges. When you provide credit or debit card information or other information necessary to facilitate payment to us or our vendors, you warrant and represent that you are the authorised user of the credit or debit card or alternative payment method that is used to pay for the Products. In the event legal action is necessary to collect on balances due, you agree to reimburse us and our vendors or agents for all expenses incurred to recover sums due, including legal fees and other legal expenses. You are responsible for purchase of, and payment of charges for, all internet access services and telecommunications services needed for use of the websites.
14.10 Promotional codes. From time to time, we may issue promotion codes that may be redeemed at the time of check out. These codes are non-transferable and may only be used by the intended recipient; these codes have no cash value and are not redeemable for cash. We reserve the right to cancel any promotion code and reduction redemption when the total value of the promotional code exceeds the price of the item. Multiple promotional codes may not be combined. We are not responsible for any financial loss arising out of our refusal, cancelation, or withdrawal of a promotion or any failure or inability of a customer to use a promotional code for any reason.

15.3 Subject to clause 15.1:
(a) we shall not be liable to you, whether in contract, tort (including negligence), breach of statutory duty, or otherwise, for any loss of profit, or any indirect or consequential loss arising under or in connection with any contract between us; and
(b) our total liability to you for all other losses arising under or in connection with any contract between us, whether in contract, tort (including negligence), breach of statutory duty, or otherwise, shall be limited to the total sums paid by you for Products under such contract.
16. OUR RESPONSIBILITY FOR LOSS OR DAMAGE SUFFERED BY YOU IF YOU ARE A CONSUMER CUSTOMER
16.1 We are responsible to you for foreseeable loss and damage caused by us. If we fail to comply with these terms, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking this contract or our failing to use reasonable care and skill. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both we and you knew it might happen, for example, if you discussed it with us during the sales process.
16.2 We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so. This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors; for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; for breach of your legal rights in relation to the Products; and for defective Products under the Consumer Protection Act 1987.
16.3 When we are liable for damage caused by defective digital content. If defective digital content which we have supplied damages a device or digital content belonging to you and this is caused by our failure to use reasonable care and skill we will either repair the damage or pay you compensation. However, we will not be liable for damage which you could have avoided by following our advice to apply an update offered to you free of charge or for damage which was caused by you failing to correctly follow installation instructions or to have in place the minimum system requirements advised by us.

5. CHARGES AND PAYMENT
5.1. Pricing. Certain Services are offered under different pricing plans and tiers, the limits and features of which are available on request. Your rights and obligations with respect to certain Services will be based in part on the pricing plan you choose. For the avoidance of doubt, if you are on a free plan and free tier (a “Starter Plan”), you are subject to our Fair Usage Policy, which entitles you to a maximum limit of 20,000 ‘GET’ requests and 2000 ‘PUT’ requests per month; and we may change such Fair Usage Policy, from time to time, in our sole discretion.
5.2. Payment Terms.
5.2.1. When you purchase Services (each such purchase, a “Subscription”), you expressly authorise us or our third-party payment processor to charge you for such Services. You represent and warrant that you have the legal right to use all payment methods that you provide to us.
5.2.2. All fees are stated and solely payable in U.S. Dollars, non-cancellable, non-refundable, and not subject to setoff, unless expressly set forth otherwise in these Terms.
5.2.3. In the event that you fail to pay the full amount owed to us, we may limit your access to the Services, in addition to any other rights or remedies we may have.
5.3. Authorization for Recurring Payments.
- 5.3.1. All pricing plans involve recurring fees (each, along with any applicable taxes and other charges are a “Subscription Fee”). Depending on which options you choose, those fees may recur each month or year thereafter, at the then-current rate. Please note that our fees are subject to change, although we will notify you before we effect any change.
- 5.3.2. By agreeing to these Terms and purchasing a Subscription, you acknowledge that your Subscription has recurring payment features and you accept responsibility for all recurring payment obligations prior to cancellation of your Subscription by you or Disguise. We (or our third party payment processor) will automatically charge you in accordance with the term of your Subscription (e.g., each month, quarter, or year), on the calendar day corresponding to the commencement of your Subscription using the payment information you have provided.
- 5.3.3. In the event your Subscription begins on a day not contained in a later month, your payment method will be charged on such other day as we deem appropriate. For example, if you started a monthly Subscription on January 31st, your next payment date is likely to be February 28th, and your payment method would be billed on a pro-rata basis, on that date. We may also periodically authorize your payment method in anticipation of applicable fees or related charges.
- 5.3.4. Your Subscription continues until cancelled by you or we terminate your access to or use of the Services or the Subscription in accordance with these Terms.
5.4. Cancelling Subscriptions
- 5.4.1. You may cancel your Subscription at any time but please note that such cancellation will only be effective at the end of the then-current Subscription period. Unless required by law, you will not receive a refund of any portion of the subscription fee paid for the then-current subscription period at the time of cancellation.
- 5.4.2. You can cancel or downgrade, directly via the Platform and your Account. For the avoidance of doubt, only an Authorised User of your Account may cancel or modify your Subscription.
5.5. Taxes. Subscription Fees do not include taxes, and you agree to: (a) pay all sales/use, gross receipts, value-added, GST, personal property, or other tax (including any interest and penalties) with respect to the transactions and payments under these Terms, other than taxes based on our income, employees, or real property; and (b) be responsible for any filing of any information or tax returns with respect thereto.
5.6. Withholding. All payments made by you to us under these Terms will be made free and clear of any deduction or withholding. If any such deduction or withholding (including but not limited to cross-border withholding taxes) is required by law, you will pay such additional amounts as are necessary so that the net amount received by us after such deduction or withholding will be equal to the full amount that we would have received if no deduction or withholding had been required. Each party will use commercially reasonable efforts to work with the other party to help obtain, reduce, or eliminate any necessary withholding, deduction, or royalty tax exemptions where applicable.
6.1. Confidential Information. We (the “Discloser”) have disclosed or may disclose proprietary or non-public business, technical, financial, or other information (“Confidential Information”) to you (the “Recipient”). Our Confidential Information expressly includes non-public information regarding features, functionality, and performance of the Services, including security related information.
6.2. Obligations. The Recipient will use the Discloser’s Confidential Information only for the purpose of evaluating whether or not to use (or continue to use) the Services. The Recipient will not disclose the Discloser’s Confidential Information to parties other than the Recipient’s employees, contractors, affiliates, agents, or professional advisors (“Representatives”) who need to know it and who have a legal obligation to keep it confidential. The Recipient will ensure that its Representatives are subject to no less restrictive confidentiality obligations than those herein. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Recipient may disclose the Discloser’s Confidential Information: (a) if directed by Discloser; or (b) to the extent required by applicable legal process, provided that the Recipient uses commercially reasonable efforts to (i) promptly notify the Discloser in advance, to the extent permitted by law, and (ii) comply with the Discloser’s reasonable requests regarding its efforts to oppose the disclosure. The obligations set forth herein will survive for so long as these Terms are in effect between the parties and for five years thereafter.

In the event of any loss or corruption of any data associated with the Services, we will use commercially reasonable efforts to restore the lost or corrupted data from the latest relevant backup maintained by disguise.

9. LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY
9.1. NEITHER DISGUISE NOR ANY OTHER PARTY INVOLVED IN CREATING, PRODUCING, OR DELIVERING THE SERVICES (“SUPPLIERS”) WILL BE LIABLE FOR ANY INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, INCLUDING LOST PROFITS, LOSS OF DATA OR GOODWILL, SERVICE INTERRUPTION, COMPUTER DAMAGE, SYSTEM FAILURE, OR THE COST OF SUBSTITUTE SERVICES ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THESE TERMS OR FROM THE USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE THE SERVICES, WHETHER BASED ON WARRANTY, CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), PRODUCT LIABILITY, OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY, AND WHETHER OR NOT DISGUISE HAS BEEN INFORMED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGE.
9.2. IN NO EVENT WILL DISGUISE OR SUPPLIERS’ TOTAL LIABILITY ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THESE TERMS OR FROM THE USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE THE SERVICES EXCEED THE AMOUNTS YOU HAVE PAID TO DISGUISE IN THE PRECEDING TWELVE MONTHS FOR THE SERVICES.
9.3. EACH PROVISION OF THESE TERMS THAT PROVIDES FOR A LIMITATION OF LIABILITY, DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES, OR EXCLUSION OF DAMAGES IS TO ALLOCATE THE RISKS OF THESE TERMS BETWEEN THE PARTIES. THIS ALLOCATION IS REFLECTED IN THE PRICING OFFERED BY DISGUISE TO YOU AND IS AN ESSENTIAL ELEMENT OF THE BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN THE PARTIES. EACH OF THESE PROVISIONS IS SEVERABLE AND INDEPENDENT OF ALL OTHER PROVISIONS OF THESE TERMS. THE LIMITATIONS IN THIS SECTION 9 WILL APPLY TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT NOT PROHIBITED BY LAW AND NOTWITHSTANDING THE FAILURE OF ESSENTIAL PURPOSE OF ANY LIMITED REMEDY IN THESE TERMS.
10.1. We may terminate your access to and use of the Services, at our sole discretion, at any time and without notice or liability to you, provided that if DISGUISE freezes your account or cancels your subscription and the termination is not due to your breach of these Terms, DISGUISE will provide you a pro rata refund of pre-paid unused fees unless, in our reasonable estimation, we are not legally permitted to do so (in which case any refund rights are null and void).
10.2. You may cease use of the Services at any time. If you are paying for a Subscription, you may terminate your Subscription through the process in Section 5.4.
10.3. Upon any termination, discontinuation, or cancellation of Services or your Account, the following provisions of these Terms will survive: Service Terms, Charges and Payment (to the extent you owe any fees at the time of termination); Confidentiality; provisions related to permissions to access User Content (to the extent applicable); Warranty Disclaimers; Indemnity; Limitations of Liability; Termination; and the Miscellaneous provisions under Section 11. Furthermore, we may remove or delete your User Content within three months after the termination or cancellation of Services or your Account
11.1. Force Majeure. Disguise will not be liable for, or be considered to be in breach of or default under these Terms on account of, any delay or failure to perform as required by these Terms as a result of any cause or condition beyond its reasonable control, so long as it uses commercially reasonable efforts to avoid or remove those causes of non-performance. If we believe in good faith that we are legally prohibited from providing you or your Authorised Users with the Services, we may freeze your account and/or cancel your subscription at our sole discretion.
11.2. Groups. Certain features of the Services may allow you to participate in teams, groups or organisations (each a “Group”). In those situations, the administrator, owner, or equivalent of the Group (“Admin”) is responsible for the compliance of these Terms by each other member of the Group, payment of the Subscription Fee (if applicable), and all matters related to the Group. For clarity, each member of the Group is still responsible for their own compliance with these Terms.
3.8 User Content. User content means all data or content uploaded into the Services by you for the purpose of using the Services or facilitating your use of the Services, which shall include but not be limited to images, videos, audio files, zip files, 3D files, 3D models, Disguise ‘designer’ project files, files from third party applications, game engine files and/or other data formats. Permission and access to such User Content is controlled and set by the role that you assign to members of your Group. The roles available to you and your Group may change based on your Subscription. For the avoidance of doubt, any options within the Services to share User Content outside of the Platform, shall include password protected features and/or can be publicly accessible based on your Subscription.
11.3. Beta Features. Product features identified as ‘Alpha’ or ‘Beta’ features (“Beta Features”) made available by us are provided to you for testing purposes only, and we do not make any commitment to provide Beta Features in any future versions of the Services.

All Beta Features are provided “as is” without warranty of any kind and without any performance obligations.
11.4. Notices. Any notices or other communications provided by us under these Terms, including those regarding modifications to these Terms, will be given by us: (i) via e-mail; or (ii) by posting to the Site. For notices made by e-mail, the date of receipt will be deemed the date on which such notice is transmitted.
11.5. Third Party Service Providers. For the avoidance of doubt, Disguise may engage third parties as service providers to the Services (for example, as of the date of these Terms, Disguise hosts the Services on Amazon Web Services).
11.6. No Partnership. No agency, partnership, joint venture, or employment is created as a result of these Terms, and neither party has any authority of any kind to bind the other party in any respect whatsoever.
11.7. Severability. The invalidity or unenforceability of any provision of these Terms will not affect the validity or enforceability of any other provision hereof and it is the intent and agreement of the parties that these Terms will be deemed amended by modifying such provision to the extent necessary to render it valid, legal, and enforceable while preserving its intent or, if such modification is not possible, by substituting another provision that is legal and enforceable and that achieves the same objective.
11.8. Assignment. These Terms (and your access to any of the Services) are not assignable or transferable by you without our prior written consent. Any purported assignment in violation of this section is null and void.
11.9. Governing Law. These Terms will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of England and Wales without application of that country’s conflict of law principles. The Parties submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts except that Disguise - at its sole discretion - shall be entitled alternatively to institute legal proceedings against you at courts having jurisdiction over your country of domicile.
11.10. Interpretation. Whenever the words “including,” “include,” or “includes” are used herein, they will be deemed to be followed by the phrase “without limitation.”
11.1. Entire Terms. These Terms supersedes all other agreements between the parties relating to its subject matter. The parties expressly agree that any different or additional terms set forth in any purchase order, code of conduct, or other similar documentation provided by you will not apply between the parties even if signed, acknowledged or accepted by us, unless we specifically references this clause and waives its rights.
