GENERAL LEGAL TERMS
The Terms constitute the whole legal agreement between you and RGIS and govern your use of the Services (but excluding any services which RGIS may provide to you under a separate written agreement), and completely replace any prior agreements between you and RGIS in relation to the Services.
You agree that RGIS may provide you with notices, including those regarding changes to the Terms, by email, regular mail, or postings on the Services.
You agree that if RGIS does not exercise or enforce any legal right or remedy which is contained in the Terms (or which RGIS has the benefit of under any applicable law), this will not be taken to be a formal waiver of RGIS’s rights and that those rights or remedies will still be available to RGIS.
If any court of law, having the jurisdiction to decide on this matter, rules that any provision of these Terms is invalid, then that provision will be removed from the Terms without affecting the rest of the Terms. The remaining provisions of the Terms will continue to be valid and enforceable.
