Nothing in these Terms shall be construed as excluding or limiting the liability of Scoodle or its group companies for death or personal injury caused by its negligence or for any other liability which cannot be excluded by English law.

These Terms shall be governed by and construed in accordance with English law and you agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English Courts.
