  • I will not display the logo in any manner that suggests I am an EFSA employee, in a manner that suggests that EFSA is a part of my company or company name, that EFSA holds your company or that your company holds EFSA or that is anyway connected to EFSA.

The construction, validity and performance of these terms and conditions shall be governed by European Union Law integrated by Italian Law, and EFSA and I agree to submit any dispute arising therefrom to the exclusive jurisdiction of the General Court of the European Union. A failure of EFSA to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision and shall in no way affect its right to later enforce or exercise it.
  • If any provision of these terms is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, EFSA and I agree that it shall not affect the validity or enforceability of any other terms or rights which shall continue in full force and effect except for any such invalid or unenforceable provision or part thereof.
