  5. Extra terms
    1. From time to time we will need to update this document to keep it up to date with legislation changes and other matters.

We may also suspend or disable your account if we determine that you create risk or legal exposure for us or when we are permitted to do so by law.

    3. We work hard to provide the best service we can and to specify clear terms of use for everyone who is affected by them.

In all other cases, you agree that the claim or dispute must be resolved exclusively in the District Court of New Zealand or a disputes tribunal located within the Wellington Region, that you submit to the personal jurisdiction of either of these courts for the purpose of litigating any such claim, and that the laws of the New Zealand government will govern these terms and any claim, without regard to conflict of law provisions.
