3. Availability of this Service

Huawei adheres to the principle of consumer and quality service first.

To use third-party services, you are also required to agree with and accept the third-party terms.

Notwithstanding the preceding provisions, Huawei or any third party cannot make any warranty concerning the availability, accuracy, integrity, reliability and timeliness of any data (including but not limited to the geographical location data displayed in this Service).

In the event that a force majeure event occurs, Huawei is entitled to suspend the performance of any obligations under this Agreement and continue to perform the obligations after a period of time. Huawei will endeavor to end the force majeure event or find a solution so that Huawei can still perform its obligations during the force majeure event.

23. Waiver of rights

During the performance period of this Agreement, in the event that Huawei fails to strictly perform obligations under this Agreement or Huawei does not exercise any rights or remedy measures, this does not mean Huawei waives these rights or remedy measures. You shall not exempt Huawei from performance of the obligations. Any Huawei default waiver does not constitute exemption from any later breach of contract. Unless Huawei explicitly expresses the intention to waive rights and notify you in writing, the exemption of Huawei from any contents under this Agreement shall be void.

24. Integrity of this Agreement

Prior to the effective date of this Agreement, any oral or written consultation shall not be understood as giving or implying any statements, commitments or promises. Even if you believe that you sign this Agreement because of your reliance on any misrepresentation made by Huawei, you will not enjoy any remedies (unless the misrepresentation is made for the purpose of cheating).

You and Huawei are independent subjects. The conclusion of this Agreement does not mean that you and Huawei constitute any cooperation, joint venture or agent relationship.
