(b) Severability. If any provision of these Terms of Use is found to be illegal, void, or unenforceable, then that provision will be deemed severable from these Terms of Use and will not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions of these Terms of Use.


(c) Governing Law and Jurisdiction. These Terms of Use are governed by and will be construed in accordance with the laws of the Netherlands, without reference to (i) any conflicts of law principle that would apply the substantive laws of another jurisdiction to the parties’ rights or duties, (ii) the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods, or (iii) other international laws.


(d) Dispute Resolution. Should any dispute arise with regard to these Terms of Use, the parties agree to first work in good faith to resolve such dispute, and neither party may commence any action with regard to such dispute until thirty (30) days have passed from the time such party has provided clear notice to the other party of the nature of such dispute, provided that nothing herein will prevent us from seeking injunctive relief in the event of your actual or threatened breach of any terms of these Terms of Use.


(e) Notice. Any notice which may be required to be given under these Terms of Use, will be given: (i) by EngineeringTrainer to you via e-mail to the e-mail address you maintain in your account settings or by notifying you electronically by displaying the notice in the Site; (ii) by you to us in any commercially reasonable manner, including certified mail, return receipt requested, e-mail, or any other customary means of communication at the applicable mailing address set forth below, as may be updated from time to time.

All feedback, comments, requests for technical support, or other communications relating to the Site should be directed to the EngineeringTrainer support team by emailing support@engineeringtrainer.com.


(f) No Agency. Nothing in these Terms of Use will be construed as making either party the partner, joint venture, agent, legal representative, employer, contractor, or employee of the other. Neither EngineeringTrainer nor any other party to these Terms of Use has, or may hold itself out to any third-party as having, any authority to make any statements, representations or commitments of any kind, or to take any action that is binding on the other, except as provided for herein or authorized in writing by the party to be bound.


(g) Assignment. We may freely transfer or assign any portion of our rights or delegate our obligations under these Terms of Use.

Any attempted transfer or assignment of these Terms of Use without the prior written consent of EngineeringTrainer will be null and void ab initio. These Terms of Use will be binding upon and will inure to the benefit of the permitted successors and assigns of each party to these Terms of Use.


(h) Miscellaneous. These Terms of Use, our Privacy Policy, the Mobile Terms, together with each Sales Order, as applicable, constitute the sole and entire agreement between you and EngineeringTrainer with respect to the Site and supersede all prior and contemporaneous understandings, agreements, representations and warranties, both written and oral, with respect to the Site. The section titles used herein are displayed for convenience only and have no legal effect. Nothing in these Terms of Use confers any third-party beneficiary rights or remedies.

The terms on any such purchase order or similar document submitted by you to EngineeringTrainer will have no effect and are hereby rejected. If any dispute should arise between the parties hereto regarding the terms or subject matter of these Terms of Use or the enforcement or breach of such terms, then the party prevailing in such dispute, whether by out-of-court settlement or final judicial determination, will be entitled to recover from the non-prevailing party all costs and expenses of such dispute incurred by such prevailing party, including without limitation reasonable attorneys’ fees.
