You shall not license or permit, or purport to license or permit, any third person or legal entity to use the Site, any information on the Site or any Access Codes provided to you, whether or not for financial or other consideration. Failure or delay by Starcrest to enforce any of its rights under these Terms or the giving of additional time for performance or other indulgence is not a waiver of such right unless Starcrest acknowledges the waiver in writing, nor will any single or partial exercise of any right or remedy preclude any further exercise of the same or the exercise of any other right. No waiver of any particular breach of any provision of these Terms will operate as a waiver of any repetition of such breach. Nothing in these Terms shall be deemed to confer any third party rights or benefits. These Terms shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties hereto and their respective heirs, successors and assigns. Each covenant and agreement in these Terms shall be construed for all purposes to be a separate and independent covenant or agreement. If any provision of these Terms shall contravene or otherwise be invalid under any applicable Laws, such contravention or invalidity shall not invalidate any other provisions of these Terms, but rather it shall be construed, insofar as the applicable Laws are concerned, as not containing the provision or provisions (or portions thereof) contravening or invalid under such applicable Laws, and the rights and obligations created hereby shall be construed and enforced accordingly. These Terms constitute the entire understanding between you and Starcrest in relation to the Site and your use thereof and supersede all prior agreements, negotiations and representations between the parties, whether oral or written. These Terms shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of Hong Kong. You and Starcrest agree to submit any difference or disputes arising in connection with these Terms and your use of the Site to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of Hong Kong.
