16) You agree to licence CubedCon the free exploitation of any intellectual property subsiding in the booth’s appearance you may hold, as primary booth-holder, for the purposes of the Convention from time to time. You may not withdraw this licence, but it will expire after the Convention ends.

20) You will have capacity to contract if (among other factors) you are of lawful age.

 

21) You will be entitled to have it seen that the purchased server benefit is delivered to the specified Minecraft account insofar that the specified Minecraft account is non-fraudulent, unaltered, licenced, attached with no unusual incumbrance, or barred from server entry pursuant to Part D.

b)    economic losses,

30) These terms are ‘fair’ for the purposes of the Consumer Rights Act 2015 and the Consumer Rights Directive, considering the nature of our charitable purpose, the unlikeliness of major damage without fault laying elsewhere, and the prevailing limitation over exclusion in the event that fault is established.
