Even if we are delayed in exercising our rights or fail to exercise a right in one case, it doesn�t mean we waive our rights under these Terms, and we may decide to enforce them in the future. If we decide to waive any of our rights in a particular instance, it doesn�t mean we waive our rights generally or in the future.
It may happen that our platform is down, either for planned maintenance or because something goes down with the site.
