You should take reasonable precautions and make whatever investigation or inquiries you deem necessary or appropriate before proceeding with any online or offline transaction with any third party, including without limitation, a Registered User and Practitioner.
You understand that deciding whether to use the services of a Practitioner or provide services to a Registered User or use information contained in the website, is your personal decision for which you alone are responsible. You acknowledge that Thinck does not warrant and cannot make representations as to the suitability of any individual you may decide to interact with on or through the website and/or the accuracy or suitability of any advice, information, or recommendations made by any individual. You also understand that any background check undertaken by Thinck is not exhaustive and hence, ultimately, the Registered User should take an informed and independent decision, bearing in mind that Thinck only seeks to provide a platform wherein Registered Users and Practitioners have an opportunity to meet each other.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, you agree that since Thinck only seeks to provide a platform wherein the Registered User and the Practitioner can be brought together and Thinck itself has no role in the execution or provision of any services itself, Thinck shall not be responsible or liable for any loss or damage of any sort whatsoever incurred as the result of any such transaction. If there is a dispute between Users on the website, you acknowledge and agree that Thinck is under no obligation to become involved. in the event that a dispute arises between you and one or more users of the website or any third party, you hereby release Thinck, its officers, managers, members, directors, employees, attorneys, agents, and successors in rights from any claims, losses, demands, expenses, costs and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind or nature, known or unknown, suspected or unsuspected, foreseeable or unforeseeable, disclosed or undisclosed, arising out of or in any way related to such disputes.
16. GENERAL PROVISIONS
16.1. Severability: If any provision of this Agreement is held by a court of competent jurisdiction or arbitral tribunal to be unenforceable under applicable law, then such provision shall be excluded from the Agreement and the remainder of the Agreement shall be interpreted as if such provision were so excluded and shall be enforceable in accordance with its terms; provided however that, in such event the Agreement shall be interpreted so as to give effect, to the greatest extent consistent with and permitted by applicable law, to the meaning and intention of the excluded provision as determined by such court of competent jurisdiction or arbitral tribunal.
