We may make software owned or operated by third-party companies available to you. You must only use this software in accordance with the terms and conditions imposed by the third-party provider.

Description of or reference to any organization, product, practitioner, publication or link to an external website does not imply endorsement by Sleepio. Equally the omission of any such names does not necessarily indicate a lack of endorsement by Sleepio.


13. Indemnity

You agree to indemnify and hold Sleepio and its officers, directors, employees and licensors harmless from any claim or demand (including but not limited to reasonable legal fees) made by a third party due to or arising out of or related to your violation of the terms and conditions of this Agreement or any applicable laws, regulations or third party rights.

15. Entire agreement

This Agreement (incorporating these terms and the Privacy Policy and the Posting Policy as may be updated from time to time) constitutes all the terms and conditions agreed upon between you and Sleepio, in respect of the Sleepio Clinic, and supersede any prior agreements in relation to the subject matter of this Agreement, whether written or oral. Any additional or different terms or conditions in relation to the subject matter of this Agreement in any written or oral communication from you to Sleepio are void. You agree and accept that you have not accepted the terms and conditions of this Agreement in reliance of or to any oral or written representations made by Sleepio not contained in this Agreement.


16. Severability and waiver

If any provision of the Agreement is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be unlawful, void or for any reason unenforceable, such provision shall be changed and interpreted so as to best accomplish the objectives of the original provision to the fullest extent permitted by law, and the remaining provisions of the Agreement shall remain in full force and effect.

If we fail to insist that you perform any of your obligations under these terms, or if we do not enforce our rights against you, or if we delay in doing so, that will not mean that we have waived our rights against you and will not mean that you do not have to comply with those obligations. If we do waive a default by you, we will only do so in writing, and that will not mean that we will automatically waive any later default by you.


17. Term and termination

This Agreement is between you and us only and will become effective when you start using Sleepio Clinic and will remain effective until terminated by you or Sleepio. Sleepio reserves the right to terminate this Agreement or suspend your Sleepio Clinic account at any time in case of unauthorized, or suspected unauthorized use of Sleepio Clinic whether in contravention of this Agreement or otherwise.
