The limitations of damages set forth above are fundamental elements of the basis of the bargain between Shopping Saver and the User. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, so the above limitation may not apply to the User.

The limitations of liability provided in these terms inure to the benefit of Shopping Saver.

Shopping Saver reserves the right to assume the exclusive defence and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by the User, in which event the User will cooperate in asserting any available defences.
This defence and indemnification obligation will survive these Terms and the User’s use of the Site or Services. These Terms, and any rights and licences granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by the User, but may be assigned by Shopping Saver without restriction.

Waiver: Any failure by a party to insist upon strict performance by the other of any provision in the Terms will not be taken to be a waiver of any existing or future rights in relation to the provision.

Assignment: A User must not assign any rights and obligations under the Terms whether in whole or in part without Shopping Saver’s prior written consent.
