    8.2 We, not the Store Provider, will be solely responsible for the W1TTY App, any content that we make available through the W1TTY App and any support or maintenance in respect of the W1TTY App. The Store Provider will have no obligation to provide any maintenance or support services with respect to the W1TTY App.

  18. 9.1 If at any time you feel that you no longer agree with these Terms of Service or any changes made to the Terms of Service or the W1TTY Service, you must immediately stop using the W1TTY Service. If you have created a W1TTY Account you will need to cancel your W1TTY Account in accordance with the W1TTY Account Terms (here).

    9.2 We may immediately end your access to the W1TTY Service if you break the Rules of Acceptable Use, any other important rule(s), or terms and conditions we set for accessing and using the W1TTY Service including these Terms of Service, or where we are required to do so to comply with a court order, law, regulation, regulatory decree or ombudsman’s orders.

    9.3 We may also suspend your access and use of the W1TTY Service if we are required to do so to comply with a court order, law, regulation, regulatory decree or ombudsman’s orders, or while we investigate any suspected breach of these Terms of Service or suspicious activity relating to your W1TTY Account, in each case if continuing to provide you with access to the W1TTY Service while we conduct these investigations is likely to harm us, the W1TTY Service or another user of the W1TTY Service, or may cause us to be in breach of applicable law.

    9.4 We may withdraw the W1TTY Service altogether as long as we give you 2 months' prior notice that we plan to do this.

    9.5 If you or we end your use of the W1TTY Service or we withdraw the W1TTY Service as described in this paragraph you will lose your ability to access and initiate transactions through the W1TTY Service and we will ask you, within a reasonable time frame, to withdraw any balance held in your W1TTY Account in accordance with the W1TTY Account Terms.

    9.6 There is no fee for ending your use of the W1TTY Service; however, if you or we end your use of the W1TTY Service, this shall not affect any of your obligations to pay any sums due to us.

    9.7 We will not offer you compensation for any losses you might suffer as a result of our termination or suspension of your use of the W1TTY Service as set out in this paragraph, unless:

    (a) the termination or suspension is done in error on our part; or

    (b) we fail to reactivate your access to the W1TTY Service as soon as we complete an investigation or if any suspension of your access to the W1TTY Service by a court or other official body is lifted.

    9.8 Nothing in this paragraph 9 affects any legal rights you may have under the law of the country in which you are resident.

  19. OUR LIABILITY AND RESPONSIBILITY TO YOU
  20. 10.1 We do our best to ensure that the W1TTY Service itself is of a reasonable standard and quality and matches any descriptions we have provided to you. However, the W1TTY Service may contain some content owned or developed by third parties, and rely on third-party networks, such as banks and payment providers. As we do not own or produce such third-party content, or operate these third-party networks, we cannot be responsible for them in any way. We will not be responsible to you if any transaction you enter into through W1TTY Service fails as a result of any error or unavailability of these third-party services or the networks they rely on.

    10.2 We will do our best to ensure that any elements of the W1TTY Service that require a connection to the Internet will always be available to you. However, due to the nature of the Internet and technology, any such features of the W1TTY Service may be unavailable if we need to undertake any emergency or scheduled maintenance on our systems. This means that we are unable to promise that your use of those features of the W1TTY Service will always be uninterrupted, without delays, error-free or meet your expectations. We will notify you of any planned outages; however, we may not be able to do this if any outages are caused by circumstances outside of our control.

    10.3 In the event of a claim arising out of the provision of the W1TTY Service, we will never be responsible for any loss or damage that is not reasonably foreseeable or that is caused by a failure by you to comply with these Terms of Service. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time you started using the W1TTY Service, both we and you knew it might happen.

    10.4 The above does not affect your rights under the applicable law of the country in which you are resident, including our responsibility to you for any personal injury or death caused by our negligence, our responsibility in the event of any fraud on our part, or our responsibility if we deliberately breach our commitments in these Terms of Service.

  21. RESOLVING DISPUTES
  22. 11. 1 We hope that you enjoy your use of the W1TTY Service. However, if you have a complaint or dispute with us relating to the W1TTY Service, we would welcome the opportunity to try to make things right and resolve the dispute with you ourselves. In the first instance, please contact us using the details in paragraph 2.2 of these Terms of Service so that we can attempt to resolve the dispute informally.

    11.2 if you are in the European Economic Area, you may (but are not obliged to) seek resolution of any dispute with us through consumer mediation services. You can do this through the European Online Dispute Resolution (ODR) W1TTY Service, available at this link: https://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr/.

    11.3 In the unlikely event that we have not been able to resolve a dispute informally, we will discuss and agree with you the most effective way of resolving our dispute through a formal dispute resolution process.

    11.4 This paragraph does not affect your statutory rights.

  23. UPDATES
  24. 12. 1 We are constantly updating and improving the W1TTY Service to try and find ways to provide you with new and innovative features and services. Improvements and updates are also made to reflect changing technologies, tastes, behaviours and the way people use the Internet and the W1TTY Service.

    12.2 In order to do this, we may need to update, reset, stop offering and/or supporting a particular part of the W1TTY Service, or feature relating to the W1TTY Service ("changes to the W1TTY Service"). These changes to the W1TTY Service may affect your past activities on the W1TTY Service and features that you use ("W1TTY service elements"). Any changes to the W1TTY Service could involve certain W1TTY service elements being deleted or reset.

    12.3 You agree that a key characteristic of the W1TTY Service is that changes to the W1TTY Service will take place over time and this is an important basis on which we grant you access to the W1TTY Service. Once we have made changes to the W1TTY Service, your continued use of the W1TTY Service will show that you have accepted any changes to the W1TTY Service. You are always free to stop using the W1TTY Service.

  25. CHANGES TO THE DOCUMENT
  26. 13.1 We may revise these Terms of Service from time to time but the most current version will always be available here.

    13.2 Changes will usually occur because of new features being added to the W1TTY Service, changes in the law or where we need to clarify our position on something.

    13.3 Normally, we will try to give you some warning before the new terms become effective. However, sometimes changes will need to be made immediately and if this happens we will not be able to provide you with notice.

  27. DOCUMENTS THAT APPLY TO OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH YOU
  28. 14.1 The current version of the Terms of Service contains the only terms and conditions that apply to our relationship with you.

    14.2 We intend to rely on these Terms of Service as setting out the written terms of our agreement with you for the provision of the W1TTY Service. If part of the Terms of Service cannot be enforced then the remainder of the Terms of Service will still apply to our relationship.

    14.3 If you do not comply with these Terms of Service and we do not take action immediately, this does not mean we have given up any rights we have and we may still take action in the future.

  29. TRANSFER OF OUR RIGHTS
  30. We may transfer our rights and obligations under these Terms of Service to another organisation, and we will notify you if this happens. This will not affect your rights or our obligations under these Terms of Service.

  31. LAW
  32. 16.1 English law will apply to all disputes and the interpretation of these Terms of Service. The English courts will have non-exclusive jurisdiction over any dispute arising from or related to your use of the W1TTY Service. This does not affect your rights under applicable consumer law in the country where you are resident, including your ability to bring a claim against us in the courts of that country. If you are a resident of Scotland or Northern Ireland, this means you can bring a claim against us in the Scottish or Northern Irish courts.

  33. FEEDBACK AND COMPLAINTS
  34. We value hearing from our users, and are always interested in learning about ways we can improve the W1TTY Service. By providing your feedback you agree that we may use and allow others to use such feedback without any restriction and without any payment to you.
