3. IMESA will use its best endeavors to deliver on its obligations to the Exhibitor correctly but will not be liable for any loss of profits or damages suffered by the participant as a result of the participant’s failure to do so and any failure in this regard will not entitle the advertiser to withhold payment of the account rendered in any respect.

8. Verbal cancellation will NOT be valid; only a written cancellation via an email or faxed letter, with an acknowledged response from IMESA, will be accepted by IMESA and will serve as notice.

IMESA is allowed to institute legal proceedings for the recovery of any amount owing hereunder in the Magistrate’s Court of any district which by virtue of Section 28 of the Magistrate’s Court Act has jurisdiction over the advertiser, but this does not preclude IMESA at its own discretion from instituting legal proceedings in the Supreme Court of South Africa which has jurisdiction over the participant.
