These Website Terms are governed by and will be interpreted according to the laws of the Republic of South Africa, and all disputes, claims and other matters in connection with these Website Terms will be determined in accordance with such laws.

Any dispute relating in any way to your use of the Website or the Website Content will be submitted to confidential arbitration to be held in Johannesburg under the rules of the Arbitration Foundation of Southern Africa (or its successor in title), to which arbitration you hereby consent; except that, to the extent you have in any manner violated or threatened to violate our intellectual property rights, we may seek interdictory, injunctive or other appropriate relief in any applicable court in the Republic of South Africa, and you consent to exclusive jurisdiction and venue of such courts. 

The arbitrator’s award will be binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, no arbitration under these Website Terms may be joined to an arbitration involving any other party subject to the Website Terms, whether through class arbitration proceedings or otherwise.


Termination

_____________________________________________________________________________________ 

Notwithstanding any of these Website Terms, we reserve the right, without notice and in our sole discretion, to restrict or block your use of the Website.


Operation of the Website

_____________________________________________________________________________________ 

CAPISOL reserves the right to suspend or terminate the operation of the Website at any time for the purposes of support and maintenance or to update the information contained on the Website or for any other reason, at the sole discretion of CAPISOL.


Miscellaneous Provisions

_____________________________________________________________________________________ 

These Website Terms (as varied from time to time in accordance with the “Changes to Website Terms” section below) constitute the sole record of the agreement between you and us in relation to your use of the Website. Neither you nor CAPISOL will be bound by any express, tacit or implied representation, warranty, promise or the like not recorded herein. Unless otherwise specifically stated, these Website Terms supersede and replace all prior commitments, undertakings or representations, whether written or oral, between you and us in respect of your use of the Website. 

Notwithstanding the foregoing, our licensors, advertisers or third-party content providers may be granted access to the Website by virtue of a separate written agreement with CAPISOL. If this applies to you, these Website Terms must be read in conjunction with such agreement, which takes precedence over these Website Terms in the event of any conflict.

Failure or neglect by us to enforce at any time any of the provisions of the Website Terms may not be construed as a waiver of our rights. Any waiver of any provision of the Website Terms will be effective only if in writing and signed by us.

If any provision of these Website Terms is found to be unenforceable, wherever possible this will not affect any other provision and each will remain in full force and effect.

Any rights not expressly granted herein are reserved.


Consumer Protection Act

_____________________________________________________________________________________ 

Insofar as these Website Terms or any goods and/or services provided under these Website Terms are regulated by the Consumer Protection Act No 68 of 2008, as amended, replaced or re-enacted from time to time (“Consumer Protection Act”), it is not intended that any provision of these Website Terms contravenes any provision of the Consumer Protection Act and therefore all provisions of these Website Terms must be treated as being qualified, if necessary, to ensure that the provisions of the Consumer Protection Act are complied with.


Changes to Website Terms

_____________________________________________________________________________________ 

CAPISOL reserves the right to change any of the terms and conditions contained in the Website Terms or any policy or guideline of the Website, at any time and at our sole discretion.
