15.2 Unfortunately, due to the nature of the Internet and technology, the Service is provided on an "as available" and "as is" basis. This means that we are unable to promise that your use of the Service will be uninterrupted, without delays, error-free or meet your expectations and we do not give any commitment relating to the performance or availability of the Service in these Terms of Service and, to the extent we are able to do so, we exclude any commitments that may be implied by law.

16.3 In the unlikely event that we have not been able to resolve a dispute informally, we will discuss and agree with you the most effective way of resolving our dispute.

17. Changes to the Service

17.1 We are constantly updating and improving the Service to try and find ways to provide you with new and innovative features and services. Improvements and updates are also made to reflect changing technologies, tastes, behaviours and the way people use the Internet and our Service.

17.2 In order to do this, we may need to update, reset, stop offering and/or supporting a particular part of the Service, or feature relating to the Service (" changes to the Service "). These changes to the Service may affect your past activities on the Service, features that you use and your User Content (" Service elements "). Any changes to the Service could involve your Service elements being deleted or reset.

17.3 You agree that a key characteristic of our Service is that changes to the Service will take place over time and this is an important basis on which we grant you access to the Service. Once we have made changes to the Service, your continued use of the Service will show that you have accepted any changes to the Service. You are always free to stop using the Service.

18. Changes to the documents

18.1 We may revise these Terms of Service from time to time but the most current version will always be at https://taxify.eu/en-gb/legal/terms-for-riders

18.2 Changes will usually occur because of new features being added to the Service, changes in the law or where we need to clarify our position on something.

18.3 Normally, we will try to give you some warning before the new terms become effective. However, sometimes changes will need to be made immediately and if this happens we will not give you any notice.

19. Documents that apply to our relationship with you

19.1 The current version of the Terms of Service contains the only terms and conditions that apply to our relationship with you.

19.2 We intend to rely on these Terms of Service as setting out the written terms of our agreement with you for the provision of the Service. If part of the Terms of Service cannot be enforced then the remainder of the Terms of Service will still apply to our relationship.

19.3 If you do not comply with these Terms of Service and we do not take action immediately, this does not mean we have given up any right we have and we may still take action in the future.

20. Severability

If any provision of these Terms of Service is judged to be illegal or unenforceable, this will not affect the continuation in full force and effect of the remainder of the provisions.

21. Law

English law will apply to all disputes and the interpretation of these Terms of Service. The English courts will have non-exclusive jurisdiction over any dispute arising from or related to your use of the Service.

22. Contact, feedback and complaints

22.1 If you need to contact us in relation to these Terms of Service or any other document mentioned in them, you can contact us at our support centre (available at http://help.taxify.eu)) or please email us at info@taxify.eu.
