    12. Protection and processing of personal data
      1. Under Data Protection Legislation, we are required to provide you with certain information about who we are, how we process the personal data of those individuals who use Training Post and for what purposes and those individuals' rights in relation to their personal data and how to exercise them. This information is provided in our privacy notice at https://canstudios.com/privacy-policy/ and it is important that you read that information.
    13. Force majeure

      Neither you or we shall in any circumstances be in breach of this Agreement nor liable for delay in performing, or failure to perform, any obligations under this Agreement if such delay or failure results from events, circumstances or causes beyond the affected party’s reasonable control, including, without limitation, strikes, lock-outs or other industrial disputes (whether involving our workforce or any other party), failure of a utility service or transport or telecommunications network, act of God, war, riot, civil commotion, malicious damage, compliance with any law or governmental order, rule, regulation or direction, accident, epidemic or pandemic, breakdown of plant or machinery, fire, flood, storm or default of suppliers or sub-contractors.

      6. If we fail to insist that you perform any of your obligations under this Agreement, or if we do not enforce our rights against you, or if we delay in doing so, that will not mean that we have waived our rights against you and will not mean that you do not have to comply with those obligations. If we do waive a default by you, we will only do so in writing, and that will not mean that we will automatically waive any later default by you.
      7. Each of the conditions of this Agreement 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.
      8. This Agreement, its subject matter and its formation (and any non-contractual disputes or claims) are governed by English law. We both irrevocably agree to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of England and Wales.
