16. General legal terms
16.1 The Regulation of the Contest, the current document on the norms of use, privacy laws applied by OLOS and all other documents that are published on the Website constitute the entire contract having legal value between you and OLOS and regulate your use of the Services and completely substitute any preceding agreement between you and OLOS with regards to the Services.
16.2 You accept that OLOS can provide you communications, including those regarding the changes to the Regulation, through email or messages published on the OLOS website and – if really necessary – through ordinary mail.
16.3 You accept that if OLOS does not exercise or carry out any of the rights or legal remedies expected by the Regulation (or from which OLOS benefits according to any applicable law), this will not be considered as a formal surrender of OLOS’ rights and that those rights or remedies are still available for OLOS.
16.4 If a competent court of law, having the jurisdiction to decide on such matter, establishes that the current Regulation is partly invalid, then the specifically invalid disposition will be eliminated from the Regulation without invalidating the remaining terms of the disposition. These remaining dispositions of the regulation will continue to be valid and applicable.
16.5 You acknowledge and accept that OLOS is a Foundation that does not pursue profit, that is constituted in Italy and that, as such, is subject to the current laws in Italy.
This means, that where the OLOS Foundation should unfold its patrimony and its activities could be incorporated in a legal organism subject to the same regulations. Having said this, this hypothesized organism that incorporates the expressed activities from OLOS, will be third party beneficiary with regards to the Regulation. Furthermore this other Organization will have the right to directly carry out, and behold its trust, on any disposition of the Regulation that confers right in its favor. Other than such dispositions, no other person, organization or company will be considered as a third beneficiary of the Regulation
All of the controversies that can emerge in the arrearages of the application of the current Regulation will be addressed, from OLOS, to its own legal advisers.
17.1 For those who will not be able to demonstrate with legally valid documents their position within explicit relations with the interlocutors of the Contest will not have the possibility to begin an appeal process in regards to OLOS, concerning the solution of specific controversies that emerged in the arrearages of the current Regulation and/or against it.
OLOS, in every case, will always act according to the steps of the behavior of “an excellent family mother”. Her self-governing rules will be disputed and detailed.
Those that will want to argue as “implicated party “or because they think they can draw specific benefits and/or obstruct the development of the Mission of Truce for Action will have to clash with the wisdom, cleverness, the “non-innocence”, the intelligence and the great equilibrium that OLOS will provide – and the entire Community of Truce that it represents – of qualities comparable to “the perseverance of a horse” cited in the sentence described by K’un – The receptive, Earth – in “I Ching”. It can be an idea to take advice from a wise Chinese.
17.2 The Regulation and your relationship with OLOS on the basis of the current Regulation will be disciplined by the Italian law. You and OLOS accept to subject yourselves to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Italian courts of law and, specifically the ones in Pescara, to resolve any legal matter deriving form the Regulation. Nevertheless, you accept that OLOS is still authorized to carry out ordered decrees (or of different type equivalent to urgent legal remedy) in any jurisdiction.
