General Legal Terms
Sometimes when you use the Services, you may (as a result of, or through your use of the Services) use a service or download a piece of software, or media, or purchase goods, which are provided by another person or company. Your use of these other services, software, or goods may be subject to separate terms between you and the company or person concerned. In the event the Terms do not affect your legal relationship with these other companies or individuals.
The Terms constitute the whole legal agreement between you and Saavn and govern your use of the Services (but excluding any services which Saavn may provide to you under a separate written agreement), and completely replace any prior agreements between you and Saavn in relation to the Services.
You agree that Saavn may provide you with notices, including those regarding changes to the Terms, by email, regular mail, or postings on the Services. You agree that if Saavn does not exercise or enforce any legal right or remedy which is contained in the Terms (or which Saavn has the benefit of under any applicable law), this will not be taken to be a formal waiver of Saavn's rights and that those rights or remedies will still be available to Saavn.
If any court of law, having the jurisdiction to decide on this matter, rules that any provision of these Terms is invalid, then that provision will be removed from the Terms without affecting the rest of the Terms. The remaining provisions of the Terms will continue to be valid and enforceable.
Things happen, and these documents may change. Whatever is posted here today constitutes your current agreement with Saavn.
