14.  Miscellaneous

The laws of the Federal Republic of Nigeria regulate these Terms, their entry into force, and their termination, among other things. Any and all claims, legal processes, or litigation arising out of or related to the Service or these Terms must be made only in the Federal Republic of Nigeria, and the User consents to the jurisdiction and venue of such courts, waiving any inconvenient forum objections.

Toptoria’s omission to enforce any right or term of these Terms will not be construed as a waiver of that right or provision. The remaining provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect if any term of these Terms is found to be defective or unenforceable.

We reserve the right to change these Terms at any moment. This page will always have the most recent version (or such other page as the Service may indicate). If the alteration is important, as determined by us in our sole discretion, such as a change in the Fee, we will tell the User through email linked with the User’s Toptoria account in advance, and within a reasonable period of time. The User agrees to be bound by the amended Terms by continuing to access or use the Service after those updates become effective.

If any provision of these Terms is/becomes invalid under relevant mandatory legal provisions, this shall not render this contract and the entire Terms invalid, and Toptoria shall promptly, after discovering such incompliance, replace the void provision with the valid one.
