14. Applicable law and jurisdiction
15. Final provisions
15.2. Should any term be deemed abusive or is cancelled, this shall not affect the remaining terms, which shall continue to apply and remain binding on the parties. In any case, to the extent that this is feasible, a single term/sub-term or part thereof may be treated individually, in order for the remainder to be rendered valid and the term shall be construed accordingly. Otherwise, you agree that the term must be corrected and shall be construed in a manner that most approximates to the original meaning of the term/sub-term, in accordance with the law.
15.3. Any delay by the parties in exercising some or all of the rights stemming from these Terms shall not result in the weakening or waiver of such rights, which may be exercised at any time at a later stage, at the discretion of their holders.
15.4. The headings contained in these Terms and Conditions are used for reference purposes only, and shall not affect the meaning or interpretation thereof.
