Access may be temporarily unavailable from time to time for maintenance and system updates.
2.2 Without limiting MVL’s other rights under this Agreement, MVL may, at its sole discretion, suspend Access during any period in which payment of all or any part of the Fee is overdue, or where Client breaches, or fails to comply with, this Agreement. Client will not be entitled to any refund for the Fee attributable to the period during which Access was suspended.
2.3 Client must notify MVL via email to firstname.lastname@example.org if it wishes to change or add to the persons comprising the Users. MVL may agree to give effect to the requested change, provided that any Fees payable in respect of such change or additions are paid within thirty (30) days of MVL’s receipt of Client's notice.

3.1 Client is responsible for the use of a Password to gain Access whether that use is by Users to whom that Password is allocated or any other person. Any act or omission by a User in respect of Access, Information, a Password, or Service will be an act or omission of Client (irrespective of whether Client authorized or permitted that act or omission).
3.2 Client must not assign or transfer its rights or delegate any obligations under this Agreement, and must not resell or facilitate the Access to any other party.
3.3 Client must take all reasonable precautions to ensure that the Passwords provided to each User are kept confidential and Client must immediately notify MVL by email to email@example.com if it believes that a Password has been disclosed to any person other than the licensed Users.
3.4 Client’s use and the User’s use of the Service must comply with this Agreement and all applicable laws, statutes, ordinances, and regulations in all jurisdictions in which Client operates or resides.

3.5 MVL makes no representations that the content of the Site and the Information complies with the laws (including intellectual property laws) of any country outside the United Kingdom.

For the avoidance of doubt neither Users nor the Client may, without prior written approval from MVL, copy, disclose, redistribute, re-sell or bundle the Information outside the Client’s premises or internal network or to any third party. Where any Information is extracted and/or used by Client, Client must ensure that such Information is presented in a manner that complies with all applicable laws in the places in which such Information is disclosed, that any intellectual property notices applicable to that Information are also reproduced or published, and that the source of the Information is attributed to MVL in accordance with the provisions of Clause 2.9 and the laws applicable to that Information.

6.2 Cap on Liability.

Client is responsible for the consequence of any use of the Information and no decision should be based solely on the Information.
6.5 The Site or the Information may contain third party information or links to third party websites. MVL makes no representation, and excludes all liability as to the accuracy or completeness of information contained therein and therefore makes no representations that the Information does not infringe third parties’ intellectual property rights.

Client warrants that the email address it has provided to MVL is valid and that Client must notify MVL of a new email address if the previous email address becomes invalid.
10. Force Majeure:
MVL will not be liable for any delay in performing or failing to perform any of its obligations under the Order Form owing to a cause beyond its reasonable control. Such delay or failure will not constitute a breach of the Order Form and the time for performance of the affected obligation will be extended by such period as is reasonable.
11. Entire Agreement:
The Order Form and this Agreement contain the full and entire agreement between MVL and Client to the exclusion of all prior representations, understandings, and agreements between MVL and Client.
If any provision of this Agreement is found to be invalid by any court having competent jurisdiction, the invalidity of such a provision will not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of this Agreement, which will remain in full force and effect.
Client may not assign, sublicense, or transfer any rights of Access to the Site without MVL’s express prior written consent, which consent may be withheld at MVL’s sole discretion. MVL may assign its rights or obligations at any time without notice to or the consent of Client.
Each party will maintain the confidentiality of any information provided to it by the other party that is identified as confidential or can reasonably be regarded as confidential and will take precautions to prevent the unauthorized disclosure or use of such confidential information. The obligations of this clause will not apply (i) to any disclosure required by law, (ii) to information that is now or subsequently becomes generally available through no act of omission of the receiving party, (iii) to information that is known to the receiving party at the time of disclosure (iv) if information is provided to the receiving party by a third party without restriction, or (v) is independently developed by the receiving party without use of or reference to the disclosing party’s confidential information, as shown by documents and other competent evidence in the receiving party’s possession.
Any disputes between MVL and Client relating to the subject matter of this Agreement will be governed by and construed in accordance with English law, and the parties irrevocably submit to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts.
