Governing Law and Jurisdiction
The courts in some countries will not apply Hong-Kong law to consumers in those countries, or some types of terms and disputes. If you reside in one of those countries, then where Hong-Kong law is excluded from applying, your country's laws will apply to these terms and any disputes related to them terms. Otherwise, you agree that the laws of Hong-Kong, China excluding Hong-Kong's choice of law rules, will apply to these Terms and any disputes arising out of or relating to them. Similarly, if the courts in your country will not permit you to consent to the jurisdiction and venue of the courts in Hon-Kong County, China, then your local jurisdiction and venue will apply to such disputes related to these terms. Otherwise, all claims arising out of or relating to these terms or the services will be litigated exclusively in Hong-Kong jurisdiction and you and SOUND FOR LIFE consent to personal jurisdiction in those courts. Notwithstanding this, SOUND FOR LIFE reserves the right to apply for injunctive remedies (or an equivalent type of urgent legal relief) in any jurisdiction.

The Terms in effect at the time you place an order for a Device will apply to such order and Device.

You may view the current version of the Terms on the Forbrain website.
Events beyond Reasonable Control
Neither party will be responsible for any delay or failure to comply with these Terms if the delay or failure arises from any cause which is beyond its reasonable control.
If you do not comply with these terms, and we don't take action right away, this doesn't mean that we are giving up any rights that we may have (such as taking action in the future).
If it turns out that a particular term is not enforceable, this will not affect any other terms.
