If you do not agree to this agreement, please do not use any services. For clarity, each partly expressly agrees that this agreement is legally binding upon it.
In consideration of your use of the Offerings, you represent that you are of legal age to form a binding contract and are not a person barred from receiving services under the laws of the Netherlands or other applicable jurisdictions. You also agree to:
