i) give us prompt written notice of the Force Majeure Event and the affected obligation; and
ii) use all reasonable efforts to minimize the effect of the Force Majeure Event.

i) Amendments. We can update or modify these Terms at any time by emailing you. Changes in these Terms will be effective from the date specified in the email.
j) Entire Agreement. These terms form the entire agreement, and replace any previous agreement between you and us, in relation to its subject matter. Except as expressly mentioned, these Terms do not apply or give rights to anyone else (no ‘third-party beneficiaries’).
k) Contract Review. By agreeing to these Terms, you are confirming to us that you have had sufficient opportunity to read, review, and consider these Terms; you understand the content of each paragraph of these Terms; and you have had sufficient opportunity to seek independent professional legal advice. This means that, to the extent permitted by applicable law, any statutory provisions relating to so-called "form" or "adhesion" contracts do not apply to these Terms.
