Upon termination of your access to the Notewise Services and any portions thereof howsoever arising, we may also terminate your access to your User Content and/or delete or disable your User Content.
We may decide to discontinue the Notewise Services for any reason or no reason. If we do so, we will endeavour to give you reasonable prior notice of us doing so, although such notice may not be possible if the discontinuation is due to unforeseen circumstances beyond our control or due to the need to comply with a legal requirement.
You may link to the Notewise Services from your website, as long as it is done in a way that is both fair and legal. This includes, but is not limited to, the sharing of social media content.
You must not link to the Notewise Services if doing so may damage our reputation or where you suggest any form of association, approval or endorsement on our part where none exists or in any way that is inaccurate or misleading.

We believe in maintaining a positive and collaborative environment for all users. If a user violates these behavioral expectations, we may take appropriate action, including refusing access to our services.
By using our services, you agree to treat our staff and other users with respect. Failure to adhere to these guidelines may result in the termination of your account or access to our services.
Notewise reserves the right to take steps that we believe are reasonably necessary or appropriate to enforce and/or verify compliance with any part of these Terms and or any other rights or responsibilities we may have. You agree that we have the right, without liability to you, to disclose any registration data and/or account information, including without limitation, your information and personal information, your User Content and any other content or submissions that you provide to us, to law enforcement authorities, government officials, and/or a third party, as we believe is reasonably necessary or appropriate to protect our rights or the rights of a third party, or to meet any applicable law, regulation, subpoena, legal process or governmental request; enforce applicable these Terms, including investigation of potential violations; detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues; and to protect against harm to the rights, property or safety of Notewise, our Users, customers or the public as required or permitted by law.

If, for any reason, we fail to enforce any provision of these Terms, this will not affect our right to later enforce that or any other provision. Any agreement not to enforce, amendment or modification of these Terms must be in writing in order for it to be effective.
If any provision of these Terms is found to be unenforceable, that provision will be deemed severable from these Terms to the minimum extent necessary in order that the other provisions of these Terms remain in full force and effect and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
Under no circumstances is any independent contractor, agency, partnership, joint venture or other such relationship created by these Terms.

You acknowledge that the rights granted and obligations made under these Terms to Notewise are of a unique and irreplaceable nature, the loss of which shall irreparably harm Notewise and which cannot be replaced by monetary damages alone. Accordingly, Notewise shall be entitled to injunctive or other equitable relief (without the obligations of posting any bond or surety or proof of damages) as necessary to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation, or violation of our data security, intellectual property rights or other proprietary rights.
Notewise shall not be liable for any delay or failure to perform resulting from causes outside the reasonable control of Notewise, including without limitation any failure to perform hereunder due to unforeseen circumstances or cause beyond Notewise’s control such as acts of God, war, terrorism, riots, embargoes, acts of civil or military authorities, fire, floods, accidents, network infrastructure failures, strikes, or shortages of transportation facilities, fuel, energy, labor or materials.
