Any notice given by the Customer to Majenta or by Majenta to the Customer, will be deemed received and properly served immediately when posted on the Majenta website, 24 hours after an e-mail is sent, or three days after the date of posting of any letter. In proving the service of any notice, it will be sufficient to prove, in the case of a letter, that such letter was properly addressed, stamped and placed in the post and, in the case of an e-mail, that such e-mail was sent to the specified e-mail address of the addressee.
9. Events Outside Its Control
9.1 Majenta will not be liable or responsible for any failure to perform, or delay in performance of, any of its obligations under this Licence that is caused by an Event Outside Its Control. An Event Outside Its Control is defined below in clause 9.2.
9.2 An Event Outside Its Control means any act or event beyond Majenta’s reasonable control including, without limitation, failure of public or private telecommunications networks.
9.3 If an Event Outside Its Control takes place that affects the performance of Majenta’s obligations under this Licence:
(a) Majenta’s obligations under this Licence will be suspended and the time for performance of its obligations will be extended for the duration of the Event Outside Its Control; and
(b) Majenta will use its reasonable endeavours to find a solution by which its obligations under this Licence may be performed despite the Event Outside Its Control.
10. Other Important Terms
10.1 Majenta may transfer its rights and obligations under this Licence to another organisation, but this will not affect the Customer or the User’s rights or Majenta’s obligations under this Licence.
10.2 The Customer may only transfer its rights or its obligations under this Licence to another person if Majenta agrees in writing. The User may not transfer its rights or its obligations under this Licence to another person.
10.3 This Licence constitutes the entire agreement between Majenta and the Customer and the User and supersedes and extinguishes all previous agreements, promises, assurances, warranties, representations and undertakings between Majenta and the Customer and the User, whether written or oral, relating to its subject matter. The Customer and the User agrees that it shall have no remedies in respect of any statement, representation, assurance or warranty (whether made innocently or negligently) that is not set out in this Licence. The Customer and the User agree that it shall have no claim for innocent or negligent misrepresentation or negligent misstatement based on any statement in this Licence.
10.4 If Majenta fails to insist that the Customer or the User performs any of its obligations under this Licence, or if Majenta does not enforce its rights against the Customer or the User, or if Majenta delays in doing so, that will not mean that Majenta has waived its rights against the Customer or the User and will not mean that the Customer or the User does not have to comply with those obligations. If Majenta does waive a default by the Customer or the User, Majenta will only do so in writing, and that will not mean that Majenta will automatically waive any later default by the Customer or the User (as the case may be).
10.5 Each of the conditions of this Licence operates separately. If any court or competent authority decides that any of them are unlawful or unenforceable, the remaining conditions will remain in full force and effect.
10.6 This Licence, its subject matter and its formation (and any non-contractual disputes or claims) are governed by English law. Majenta and the Customer and the User irrevocably agree to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of England.
Majenta may from time to time provide interactive services on MX, including, without limitation:
- Chat Rooms
- Chat Bots
- Bulletin Boards
- Corporate Pages
- Article Feedback
- Feedback Forms
Where Majenta does provide interactive services, it will provide clear information to the Customer and the User about the kind of service offered, if it is moderated and what form of moderation is used (including whether it is human or technical).
Majenta will do its best to assess any possible risks for Customer and the User from third parties when it uses any interactive services provided on MX, and it will decide in each case whether it is appropriate to use moderation of the relevant service (including what kind of moderation to use) in the light of those risks. However, it is under no obligation to oversee, monitor or moderate any interactive service it provides on MX and Majenta expressly excludes its liability for any loss or damage arising from the use of any interactive service by the Customer or the User in contravention of Majenta’s content standards (below), whether the service is moderated or not.
These content standards (Content Standards) apply to any and all material which the Customer or the User contributes to MX (Contribution), and to any interactive services associated with it.
The Content Standards must be complied with in spirit as well as to the letter. The Content Standards apply to each part of any Contribution as well as to its whole.
Majenta will determine, in its discretion, whether a Contribution breaches the Content Standards.
A Contribution must:

- Contain any advertising or promote any services or web links to other sites.
