Any changes will take effect from the date specified at the head of the Agreement and the Affiliate is solely responsible for making itself aware of any such amended versions and changes.

Amendments may include, for example, changes in the reward amounts payable under this Agreement, payment procedures, and restrictions on operation and any other CAAP rules.

THE AFFILIATE’S CONTINUED PARTICIPATION IN THE CAAP FOLLOWING THE OPERATOR’S POSTING OF ANY AMENDED AGREEMENT ON ITS SITE WILL CONSTITUTE A BINDING ACCEPTANCE OF THE AMENDED AGREEMENT, WHETHER OR NOT THE AFFILIATE HAS ACTUALLY LEARNED OF OR READ THE RELEVANT CHANGES.
16. DATA PROTECTION
16.1 The Affiliate shall at all times comply with the Data Protection Acts 1988 and 2003, as amended, and the Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2003 and all other applicable data privacy rules, laws and regulations anywhere in the world.

Nothing contained in this Agreement shall limit or affect any of the Operator’s rights at law, contract or otherwise, for a breach or threatened breach of any provision of this Agreement, it being the intent of this provision to make clear that the Operator’s respective rights and obligations shall be enforceable in equity as well as at law or otherwise.
17.3 Governing Law and Jurisdiction.
