In the event of inconsistency between these General Terms and any terms and conditions attaching to a particular Service (including any Registered User, Subscriber or Employment Service), those terms and conditions relating to a particular Service shall take precedence.
8.2 No offers where illegality arises
Nothing on the Websites constitutes an offer to provide Services in any jurisdiction if to do so would contravene the laws of that jurisdiction.
8.3 Invitation to treat
- 8.3.1 Nothing in the Websites, including these General Terms is to be construed as an offer to enter into a contract with Terrapinn in relation to the provision of any goods and/or services including the Subscriber Services. The Websites and the Services displayed within them are an invitation to treat only.
- 8.3.2 We are only prepared to provide the Services on the terms and conditions outlined in these General Terms. If a User orders Services on other terms or conditions, any supply of products or services by us is by way of counter-offer to such offer on the basis of these General Terms which may be accepted by such User by accepting the Services. Any charge by us to any User's nominated credit card or other electronic payment facility is not an acceptance of that offered terms and conditions but is in implementation of our counter-offer to such User. We will reverse any charge if a User does not accept our counter-offer.
- 8.3.3 Publishing information about the Services on the Websites does not ensure its availability and price information is subject to change without notice.
8.4 Force Majeure

Any act, event, non-happening, omission or accident beyond our control includes (but is not limited to):
- (a) strikes, lock-outs or other industrial action;
- (b) civil commotion, riot, invasion, cyber-attack, terrorist attack or threat of terrorist attack, war (whether declared or not) or threat or preparation for war;

When you send us or the Websites any feedback or suggestions about the Websites or our business, you agree that we can use and adapt any ideas, concepts, techniques, words or images contained in the feedback or suggestions for any purpose and without restriction or compensation.
8.6 Co-operation with authorities
We reserve the right to co-operate fully with any law enforcement or other regulatory authority in any jurisdiction in respect of a lawful direction or request to disclose the identity or other information about anyone posting materials on the Websites which the authority claims violates any applicable law.
Any failure by us to exercise any right under these General Terms does not operate as a waiver and the single or partial exercise of any right by us does not preclude any other or further exercise of that or any other right by us.

- 8.8.1 The User may not assign or sublicense any rights granted under or pursuant to these General Terms.
