16. No Warranties
16.1. The Service is provided to You on an ”AS IS” and ”AS AVAILABLE” basis, encompassing all inherent faults and imperfections, devoid of express or implied warranties. To the maximum extent permitted under applicable law, GORDON, on its behalf and behalf of its affiliates and their respective licensors and service providers, expressly disclaims all warranties, whether express, implied, statutory or otherwise, concerning the Service. This encompasses, but is not restricted to, implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, title and non-infringement, and any warranties potentially arising from dealings, performance conduct, or trade usage.
16.2. GORDON neither proclaims nor undertakes any obligation that the Service shall align with Your stipulations, realise specified outcomes, be congruous with or function in conjunction with any other software, applications, systems, or services, run persistently, adhere to any performance or reliability criteria, remain devoid of errors or that potential malfunctions or imperfections will be rectified.
16.3. Furthermore, neither GORDON nor its providers vouch for or represent in any manner:
(i) the operational consistency or availability of the Service, inclusive of its content, materials, or associated products,
(ii) the Service’s uninterrupted or flawless operation,
(iii) the precision, dependability, or up-to-date nature of any data or content accessed via the Service, or
(iv) the assurance that the Service, its servers, its content, or communications emanating from or represented by GORDON will remain uncontaminated by viruses, scripts, trojan horses, worms, malware, timebombs, or other detrimental elements.
16.3. Some jurisdictions may not allow the exclusion of particular warranties or the imposition of limitations on statutory rights pertinent to consumers or individuals for whom GORDON is the personal data controller for the specific processing. Consequently, some or all stipulated disclaimers and limitations might not be relevant to You. However, in such contexts, the disclaimers and limitations expressed in this clause will be executed to the fullest permissible degree in line with the pertinent law. To the extent any warranty exists under law that cannot be disclaimed, GORDON, not the Application Store, shall be solely responsible for such warranty.
17. Limitation of Liability
17.1. GORDON is responsible for the information security of the Service.
17.2. GORDON is not liable for any damages arising from incorrect information You provide, Your improper management of the Service, or Your mishandling of information required to access the Service.
17.3. To clarify, GORDON holds no liability to You for any late deliveries, cancelled deliveries, damaged parcels, or lost parcels. In these instances, Your recourse is determined by Your agreement with the merchant that You have purchased the delivered goods from. The merchant is responsible for fulfilling the delivery per the terms established between You and them.
17.4. GORDON will only compensate You for substantiated and reasonable costs that directly result from negligence on GORDON’s part. However, GORDON will not compensate for indirect expenses, damages, or losses, such as missed profits or consequential damages, unless GORDON acted intentionally or with gross negligence.
17.5. Notwithstanding the foregoing, GORDON’s total liability towards You during each twelve months is limited to an amount equivalent to one-fourth (25%) of the prevailing price base amount according to the Swedish Social Insurance Code (2010:110).
17.6. You must claim compensation to GORDON within three (3) months after discovering the damage or when it should have been discovered. Failure to do so results in a forfeiture of Your right to make the claim.
17.7. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of certain types of limitations on applicable statutory rights of a consumer or an individual for whom GORDON is the personal data controller for the specific processing, so some or all of the above limitations may not apply to You. But in such a case, the exclusions and regulations outlined in this section shall be applied to the greatest extent enforceable under applicable law.
18. Force Majeure
18.1. GORDON is exempt from liability or any other responsibility if damage or failure to act results from an unforeseen obstacle beyond GORDON’s control, which GORDON could not reasonably have anticipated and whose consequences GORDON could not reasonably have avoided or overcome. This includes, but is not limited to, events such as war, natural disasters, lockouts or other labour disputes, fires, disruptions in energy supply, and interruptions in electronic data processing caused by the abovementioned events. The same applies if a subcontractor to GORDON is affected by obstacles described in this section.
19.1. Suppose any provision of the Agreement, or part thereof, is held to be unenforceable or invalid. In that case, such provision will be changed and interpreted to accomplish the objectives of such provision to the greatest extent possible under applicable law, and the remaining provisions will continue in full force and effect.
20.1. Except as provided herein, the failure to exercise a right or to require the performance of an obligation under the Agreement shall not affect a Party’s ability to exercise such right or require such performance at any time after that, nor shall the waiver of a breach constitute a waiver of any subsequent breach, unless otherwise expressly stated.
21. Product Claims
21.1. GORDON does not make any warranties concerning the Service. Should You encounter any issues stemming from or connected to Your utilisation of the Service, it is GORDON’s responsibility to manage such claims. These may encompass, without limitation: (i) claims of product liability, (ii) allegations of the Service’s non-compliance with legal or regulatory standards; and (iii) claims deriving from consumer protection laws or equivalent regulations.
22. Changes to the Terms
22.1. GORDON reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to make changes or additions to the Agreement at any time. If a change is material, GORDON will provide at least thirty (30) calendar days’ notice before any new terms take effect. This notification may be done by sending an email to Your provided email address or through in-Service messages (for example pop-up messages or messages through push notifications). What constitutes a material change will be determined at the sole discretion of GORDON. Any material changes to the Agreement will be effective from the date mentioned in GORDON’s notice, and all other changes will take effect from the date of their publication. However, GORDON always retains the right to immediately implement changes or additions necessitated by laws, regulations, or authoritative decisions. If You use the Service after the effective date of any changes, that use will constitute Your acceptance of the changed terms and conditions. If You do not agree to the new terms, You are no longer authorised to use the Service.
22.2. The latest version of the Terms can always be found on this webpage.
23. Assignment and Subcontractors
23.1. You may not transfer the Agreement or Your rights and/or obligations under the Agreement without the prior written consent of GORDON.
23.2. GORDON is entitled, without Your consent, to wholly or partially assign the Agreement, or its rights and obligations under the Agreement, to any company within the same group as GORDON or to a Third Party who, either directly or through a subcontractor, can reasonably be expected to fulfil its obligations under the Agreement to a satisfactory extent.
23.3. GORDON has the right to engage subcontractors to fulfil its commitments under the Agreement. In such cases, GORDON remains fully responsible for the subcontractor’s performance of its duties.

24.3.2. The Rules for Expedited Arbitrations shall apply unless the SCC, in its discretion, determines, taking into account the complexity of the case, the amount in dispute and other circumstances, that the Arbitration Rules shall apply. In the latter case, the SCC shall also decide whether the Arbitral Tribunal comprises one or three arbitrators. The seat of arbitration shall be Stockholm. The language to be used in the arbitral proceedings shall be English. The substantive law of Sweden shall govern this contract.
24.3.3. The arbitration proceedings and all information arising from the arbitration shall be considered confidential and subject to confidentiality without any time limitations. The Parties shall not disclose the existence or content of the arbitration award concerning the Agreement or any information regarding negotiations, arbitration proceedings, or mediation taking place in connection with this unless otherwise required by applicable law, other regulations, regulatory authorities, stock exchange rules, or market standards, or if necessary for the enforcement of a judgement. However, a Party is not prevented from disclosing information about the dispute, including the terms of the Agreement, to professional advisors bound by confidentiality obligations regarding all information disclosed, if necessary, to effectively assert its rights in connection with the dispute. If a Party is obligated by law, regulation, regulatory authority decision, or equivalent to disclose information covered by confidentiality under this provision, the Party shall not be prevented from making such disclosure.
