LANGUAGE TRANSLATION DISCLAIMER
The information contained in this Site may be translated to other languages for the convenience of users of this Site (the “translations”). The Site is being translated through “human translation” and “machine translation” dynamically through Google Translate. Because Google Translate is an external website, the WWSC does not have control of the quality or accuracy of translated content. All WWSC website content that is filtered through Google Translate may result in unexpected and unpredictable degradation of portions of text, images and the general appearance on translated pages. Google Translate may maintain unique privacy and use policies. These policies are not controlled by the WWSC and are not associated with the WWSC privacy and use policies.
The official text is written in English and the English version of the Site is the only version endorsed by the WWSC. If any questions arise related to the accuracy of the information contained in the translations, please refer to the official English version. Where there is any question, the English version is always the authoritative version of the website.
Some items on the Site may not be translated, such as images containing text, documents, maps, and web page elements. In addition, some features on the site may not work in the translated versions. If you have any questions about information that appears on our site, please contact us.
Neither party shall be liable to the other for any failure to perform any obligation under any agreement which is due to an event beyond the control of such party, including but not limited to any uncontrollable natural forces , terrorism, war, political insurgence, insurrection, riot, civil unrest, act of civil or military authority, uprising, earthquake, flood or any other natural or man made eventuality outside of our control, which causes the termination of an agreement or contract entered into, nor which could have been reasonably foreseen. Any party affected by such event shall forthwith inform the other party of the same and shall use all reasonable endeavours to comply with the terms and conditions of any agreement contained herein.
Failure of either party to insist upon strict performance of any provision of this or any agreement or the failure of either party to exercise any right or remedy to which it, he or they are entitled hereunder shall not constitute a waiver thereof and shall not cause a diminution of the obligations under this or any agreement. No waiver of any of the provisions of this or any agreement shall be effective unless it is expressly stated to be such and signed by both parties.
TERMINATION OF USE
You agree that we may, at our sole discretion, suspend or terminate your access to all or part of our website and Resources with or without notice and for any reason, including, without limitation, breach of this User Agreement. Any suspected illegal, fraudulent or abusive activity may be grounds for terminating your relationship with us and may be referred to appropriate law enforcement authorities. Upon suspension or termination, your right to use the Resources we provide will immediately cease, and we reserve the right to remove or delete any information that you may have on file with us, including any account or login information.

If any of these terms are deemed invalid or unenforceable for any reason (including, but not limited to the exclusions and limitations set out above), then the invalid or unenforceable provision will be severed from these terms and the remaining terms will continue to apply. Failure of the WWSC to enforce any of the provisions set out in these Terms and Conditions and any agreement, or failure to exercise any option to terminate, shall not be construed as waiver of such provisions and shall not affect the validity of these Terms and Conditions or of any agreement or any part thereof, or the right thereafter to enforce each and every provision.
