General

Where you have entered into a separate services agreement with AE for the provision of services which utilises this User Interface and any term of these Terms of Use conflict with any term of the service agreement, the latter shall prevail.

You will not contest the validity or enforceability of these Terms of Use solely because it was concluded electronically.

The rights granted herein are personal to you. You may not transfer, assign, charge or otherwise dispose of these Terms of Use, or any of your rights or obligations arising under it, without AE's prior written consent.

Any use or access of the User Interface or the Contents, other than in accordance with these Terms of Use, for any purpose is expressly prohibited and any rights not expressly granted in these Terms of Use are reserved by AE.

These Terms of Use and any document or policy expressly referred to in it constitutes the entire understanding between the parties with respect to the subject matter of these Terms of Use.

Each of the clauses and conditions of these Terms of Use operates separately. If any court or competent authority decides that any of them are unlawful or unenforceable, the remaining clauses and conditions will remain in full force and effect.

If we fail to insist that you perform any of your obligations under these Terms of Use, or if we do not enforce our rights against you, or if we delay in doing so, that will not mean that we have waived our rights against you and will not mean that you do not have to comply with those obligations. If we do waive a default by you, we will only do so in writing, and that will not mean that we will automatically waive any later default by you.

These Terms of Use, its subject matter and its formation (and any non-contractual disputes or claims) are governed by English law. If you are a business customer, you and we irrevocably agree to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of England and Wales. If you are a consumer, you and we both agree that the courts of England and Wales will have non-exclusive jurisdiction.

Unless expressly provided in these Terms of Use, no term of these Terms of Use are enforceable by any person who is not a party to it.
