Failure of Bidmatic to enforce any of the provisions set out in these Terms 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 or of any Agreement or any part thereof, or the right thereafter to enforce each and every provision.

We constantly review our systems and data to ensure the best possible service to you. There are specific offences for unauthorised actions against computer systems and data. We will investigate any such actions with a view to prosecuting and/or taking civil proceedings to recover damages against those responsible

The records are regarded as confidential and therefore will not be divulged to any third party, other than our employees, and if legally required to do so to the appropriate authorities. You have the right to request sight of, and copies of any and all your Account records we keep, on the proviso that we are given reasonable notice of such a request.

However, it is your sole responsibility to review the Terms from time to time to view any such changes. The updated Terms will be effective as of the time of posting, or such later date as may be specified in the updated Terms. Your continued access or use of the Services after the modifications have become effective will be deemed your acceptance of the modified Terms.

Termination will not limit any of Bidmatic’s other rights or remedies at law or in equity.
Injunctive Relief.

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.
Waiver. The failure of a party to require performance of any provision will not affect that party’s right to require performance at any time thereafter, nor will a waiver of any breach or default of this Agreement or any provision of this Agreement constitute a waiver of any subsequent breach or default or a waiver of the provision itself.
