You may link to our Website provided that you do not:

  • in anyway suggest that we are endorsing any of your products or services; or
  • misrepresent our relationship with you nor present any other false information about us; or
  • display or use a link to our Website in a manner that causes the Website or any portion of its content to display within a frame; or

11. Changes to these Terms

We may revise these Terms (and referenced terms and policies) at any time by amending this page. You are expected to check this page from time to time to take notice of any changes we may make, as they are binding on you. 

12. Miscellaneous

You may not assign, sub-licence or otherwise transfer any of your rights under these Terms as such rights are personal to you.

If any provision of these Terms shall be held to be illegal, void, invalid or unenforceable under the laws of any jurisdiction, such provision shall be deemed to be deleted from these Terms and the legality, validity and enforceability of the remainder of these Terms shall not be affected.

Any failure of MURO to enforce or exercise a right provided in these Terms is not a waiver of that right.

No waiver of any provision of these Terms by MURO shall be effective unless in writing and executed by MURO. No failure or delay by a party to exercise any right, power or remedy under these Terms shall operate as a waiver of that right, or any other right, nor shall any single or partial exercise of any right, power or remedy preclude any other or further exercise of that right or any other right, power or remedy.

Nothing in these Terms shall be enforceable by any third party under the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999.

13. Disputes

Parties hereby agree to use their best efforts to engage directly and amicably settle any disagreement, claim or dispute and resolve it in good faith negotiations. Such negotiations shall be considered as a condition to either party initiating a dispute resolution mechanism. Any such dispute arising out of or related to these Terms is personal to you and MURO. In the case of a dispute, you must contact us by sending an email to support@muro.art so that we can attempt to resolve it without resorting to formal dispute resolution.

14. Class Action Waiver

Where permitted under the applicable law, you and MURO agree that each of us may bring claims against the other only on an individual basis and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative action or proceeding. Unless both you and MURO specifically agree otherwise, the court or arbitrator may not consolidate or join more than one person's or party's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a consolidated, representative, or class proceeding. The court or arbitrator may award relief (including monetary, injunctive, and declaratory relief) only in favour of an individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief necessitated by that party's individual claim(s). Any relief awarded cannot affect other users of the site services. If, for any reason, a claim or dispute proceeds in court rather than through arbitration, each party also knowingly and irrevocably waives any right to trial by jury.

15. Jurisdiction & Applicable Law

The Portuguese courts will have exclusive jurisdiction over any claim arising from, or related to, a visit to our Website although we retain the right to bring proceedings against you or to enforce proceedings already concluded for breach of these conditions in your country of residence or any other relevant country. 

These Terms and any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with them or their subject matter or formation (including non-contractual disputes or claims) shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the law of Portugal.

16. Contact

We may send you promotional communications by email, including, but not limited to, newsletters, special offers, surveys, and other news and information we think will be of interest to you.

To contact us with any questions or concerns in connection with these Terms, or the Website, send your questions, comments or suggestions to support@muro.art.
