  24. GENERAL
    1. This agreement does not give rise to any rights under the Contracts
      (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 to allow anyone other than you or us
      to enforce any term of these Terms or of the Privacy Policy.
    2. Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it
      later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are
      required to do under these Terms, or if we delay in taking steps against
      you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that
      you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking
      steps against you at a later date.
    3. These Terms are governed by laws of the Republic of Cyprus (including non-contractual disputes or claims) and legal proceedings in respect of these Terms and our Platforms shall be dealt with exclusively by the courts of Cyprus.
    4. If any provision of these Terms and Conditions is deemed invalid by a
      court of competent jurisdiction, the relevant provision shall be deemed
      modified to the minimum extent necessary to make it valid, and the
      invalidity of such provision will not affect the validity of the
      remaining provisions of these Terms and Conditions which will remain in
      full force and effect.
    5. Without prejudice to any other rights or remedies that we may have,
      you acknowledge and agree that damages alone would not be an adequate
      remedy for any breach of these Terms by you. Accordingly, we shall be
      entitled to the remedies of injunction, specific performance or other
      equitable relief for any threatened or actual breach of these Terms.
