Enguild Legal Terms and Conditions for use of provided Services
1. Your relationship with Enguild
Your use of Enguild’s products, software, services and web sites (referred to collectively as the “Services” in this document) is subject to the terms of a legal agreement between you and Enguild. “Enguild” means Enguild AB, whose principal place of business is at Ögonmåttsgatan 1, SE-421 36 Västra Frölunda, Sweden. This document explains the agreement, and sets out some of the terms and conditions of that agreement. You are obliged to accept the agreement before use of the Services.
Your agreement with Enguild will always include, at a minimum, the terms and conditions set out in this document unless otherwise agreed in writing with Enguild. These are referred to below as the “General Terms”. For all Services provided by Enguild, the General Terms will be accessible for you to read either during installation of that Service, or through your use of, that Service.
Your agreement with Enguild will also include the terms of any Legal Notices applicable to the Services, in addition to the General Terms. All of these are referred to below as the “Additional Terms”. For all services where Additional Terms (for example specific software licenses) are applicable, these will be accessible for you to read either during installation of that Service, or through your use of that Service.
The General Terms, together with the Additional Terms, form a legally binding agreement between you and Enguild in relation to your use of the Services. It is important that you take the time to read them carefully. Collectively, this legal agreement is referred to below as the “TOS”.
If there is any contradiction between what the Additional Terms say and what the General Terms say, then the Additional Terms shall take precedence in relation to that Service.
Where Enguild has provided you with a translation of the English language version of the TOS, then you agree that the translation is provided for your convenience only and that the English language versions of the TOS will govern your relationship with Enguild.
If there is any contradiction between what the English language version of the TOS says and what a translation says, then the English language version shall take precedence.
2. Accepting the TOS
In order to use the Services, you must first agree to the TOS. You may not use the Services if you do not accept the TOS.
You can accept the TOS in any of the following ways:
a) clicking to accept or agree to the TOS, where this option is made available to you by Enguild in the user interface for any Service, or
b) by actually using the Services. In this case, you understand and agree that Enguild will treat your use of the Services as acceptance of the TOS from that point onwards.
You may not use the Services and may not accept the TOS if
a) you are not of legal age to form a binding contract with Enguild, or
b) you are a person barred from receiving the Services under the laws of Sweden or other countries including the country in which you are resident or from which you use the Services.
Before you continue, you should print or save a local copy of these General Terms for your records.

You acknowledge that Services provided by Enguild may cause your computer to store material (permanently or temporarily) provided by other users and that Enguild has no responsibility (to you or to any third party) for any content stored by the Services on your computer.

Some of the Services are supported by advertising revenue and may display advertisements and promotions. These advertisements may be targeted to the content of information stored on the Services, queries made through the Services or other information.
The manner, mode and extent of advertising by Enguild on the Services are subject to change without specific notice to you.
In consideration for Enguild granting you access to and use of the Services, you agree that Enguild may place such advertising on the Services.
15. Other content
The Services may include hyperlinks to other web sites or content or resources. Enguild may have no control over any web sites or resources which are provided by companies or persons other than Enguild.
You acknowledge and agree that Enguild is not responsible for the availability of any such external sites or resources, and does not endorse any advertising, products or other materials on or available from such web sites or resources.
You acknowledge and agree that Enguild is not liable for any loss or damage which may be incurred by you as a result of the availability of those external sites or resources, or as a result of any reliance placed by you on the completeness, accuracy or existence of any advertising, products or other materials on, or available from, such web sites or resources.
16. Changes to the TOS
Enguild may make changes to the General Terms or Additional Terms at any time. When these changes are made, Enguild will make a new copy of the General Terms available at http://www.enguild.com/documents.htm and you will be notified of any new Terms from within, or through, the affected Services.
You understand and agree that if you use the Services after the date on which the General Terms or Additional Terms have changed, Enguild will treat your use as acceptance of the updated General Terms or Additional Terms.
17. General legal terms
Sometimes when you use the Services, you may (as a result of, or through your use of the Services) use a service or download a piece of software, or purchase goods, which are provided by another person or company. Your use of these other services, software or goods may be subject to separate terms between you and the company or person concerned. If so, the TOS do not affect your legal relationship with these other companies or individuals.
The TOS constitute the whole legal agreement between you and Enguild and govern your use of the Services (but excluding any services which Enguild may provide to you under a separate written agreement), and completely replace any prior agreements between you and Enguild in relation to the Services.
You agree that Enguild may provide you with notices, including those regarding changes to the TOS, by email, regular mail, or postings on the Services.
You agree that if Enguild does not exercise or enforce any legal right or remedy which is contained in the TOS (or which Enguild has the benefit of under any applicable law), this will not be taken to be a formal waiver of Enguild’s rights and that those rights or remedies will still be available to Enguild.
If any court of law, having the jurisdiction to decide on this matter, rules that any provision of these TOS is invalid, then that provision will be removed from the TOS without affecting the rest of the TOS. The remaining provisions of the TOS will continue to be valid and enforceable.
You acknowledge and agree that each member of the group of companies of which Enguild is the parent shall be third party beneficiaries to the TOS and that such other companies shall be entitled to directly enforce, and rely upon, any provision of the TOS which confers a benefit on (or rights in favor of) them. Other than this, no other person or company shall be third party beneficiaries to the TOS.
The TOS, and your relationship with Enguild under the TOS, shall be governed by the laws of Sweden without regard to its conflict of laws provisions. You and Enguild agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts located in Gothenburg, Sweden to resolve any legal matter arising from the TOS. Notwithstanding this, you agree that Enguild shall still be allowed to apply for injunctive remedies (or an equivalent type of urgent legal relief) in any jurisdiction.
