No. The UK is no longer in the EU, and the terms of service, which are probably drafted poorly, fail to include non-EU countries that are subject to EU law, such as Iceland, Liechtenstein, and Norway. This oversight means that the UK is also not included as of the beginning of February 2020 when it ceased to be a member of the European Union.

That's probably not a violation of that rule...but that's not your biggest problem. The most reasonable interpretation of that line in the terms is that you can't use a bot or do anything that looks kind of like using a bot. So if you and all your friends used a script to enter your picks for you, that wouldn't be allowed. Manually entering picks based on ...

A subpoena is a kind of court order. Specifically it is an order to a particular person to appear and testify at a particular time and place. In many but not all cases, the order also requires that person to bring specified records or documents along. That is known as a subpoena duces tecum. In some cases this is used to, order the production of documents ...

Materially non-responsive means that the answer was "non-responsive" (i.e. it didn't answer the question being asked) in a significant and relevant manner. "Material" means in a matter this is significant and relevant to the issue being considered in the relevant context. For example, if someone is asked, what is the state and city where this incident ...

A subpoena is a kind of court order, specifically one requiring the recipient to provide information to the court. A subpoena can be an appropriate order for a company to provide information to the court about one of its users. For example, Watchtower Bible and Tract Society filed a subpoena to compel Reddit to turn over information related to one of its ...

The terms are used in inconsistent and overlapping ways. Their meaning has to be determined from context. Words do not have universal meanings in all contexts in the law. A loan generally refers to a delivery of something (often money) with a legally binding expectation that it will be returned with some additional compensation to the lender, later on. To "...

I believe that you will find something similar to this idea in the philosophy of John Locke. Locke was an early advocate of the governmental separation of powers, and his political works significantly influenced several of the framers of the US Constitution. (See Gary Willis, Explaining America for more on this.) There was also a maxim, several times quoted ...

While it is hard to say with respect to the exact phrasing and psychology, this is one common way to pose what is called a "leading question" which is usually only allowed in cases of cross-examination or examinations of a hostile witness. A leading question is a question which clearly suggests an answer. The reason that leading questions are ...

In this context, the phrase "use all means necessary and appropriate" should be viewed as a single phrase rather than words in isolation, and it essentially simply confers discretion on the President to decide what is necessary and appropriate, rather than being a limiting direction. The word "appropriate" is included in the phrase to ...

Put most simply: A "score" is the examination score for a job candidate who performed well enough to be considered for a position. It is more helpful to think of it as the candidate himself. "Certifying" a score mostly just means that the commission transmits the score to the hiring officer and promises that it's accurate. So whenever ...

Terms and clauses are the apples and oranges of a contract. First of all — from a conceptual point of view, does a contract contain anything other than terms, name of the signing parties and clauses? — most contracts do not even need to be in writing (and thus do not need to contain any "signing parties" or "clauses"). What makes up a contract is a ...

There seems to be no case for confusion here. The UK already had a legal minimum age of 13, as allowed (but not mandated) by the GDPR. Companies did have the freedom to set a higher minimum age, as SE did. If they set a a higher minimum age, companies also had the freedom to later lower that. By setting a minimum age of 16 only for EU countries, SE ...

The primary legal division is that you can lawfully talk about intellectual property (such talking becomes your intellectual property), and you can only redistribute intellectual property with the permission of the owner. (A contractual non-disclosure agreement is irrelevant, because you aren't an Apple employee obligae=ted to not talk about the new system ...

This is just saying that if they can’t host your event then the only remedy you get is your money back that your paid them (your deposit, advance payments, and of course your don’t owe final payments). It is there to make it clear that they are not responsible of any other money. What else might the client want them to refund? Other lost expenses. Non ...

A "first mortgagee" is a person who has a lien over the property and if there is more than one, the one with the highest priority. Usually, this is a lender who holds a mortgage as security for the loan. Some Units will have first mortgagees and some will be unencumbered. Those with first mortgagees will have a certain number of votes. To change the by-laws,...

Is there any such kind of maxim/quote/aphorism/idk? Not really. The criticism in that website and the phrase are misguided. "Interpreting the law" has different connotations depending on who makes the interpretation and the purpose therefor. When the legislature alleges that its provision(s) is(are) compliant with the Constitution, the legislature ...

Agent All actions of a company must, of necessity, be made by a natural person because companies are legal fictions - the law treats them as if they are real but they aren't. When a person acts for somebody else, the relevant branch of law is agency law - that person is an agent of the company principal.

There's no special legal definition of "modifying". Instead, the terms of service say what you can't do and expect the service to actually work. "Rooting" a device is changing it, and specifically has the property of bypassing security features (gives you permission that you would not otherwise have); in involves changes in the system software. Under an ...

What is the importance( in Common Law) of the provision of Responsibility distinct from Liability and enabling people to seek the cessation of an illegal act even if they have not been damaged? The purposes are (1) to prevent damages from materializing (at which point they would become liabilities), and (2) to ascertain who would be liable once damages ...

It sounds like you're thinking of this as "The license is what restricts me from doing what I want, so if the license expires, then I'll be able to do what I want." But that's exactly backwards. To use an analogy with firewalls, copyright law is "default deny". The basic premise of copyright law is that nobody is allowed to copy a copyrighted work, unless ...

You can offer such services as a private person, but you will have to disclose your address. First, let's discuss whether this is business activity that needs to be registered. A business activity (gewerbliche Tätigkeit) is any permanent/repeated activity that is intended to make a profit. Any repeated income can be evidence of business activity, unless it ...

In the united-states, it is unlawful to discriminate on the grounds of race in the provision of employment, in the financing, sale, or rental of housing, public transport (such as trains or buses) and in providing access to "public accommodations" such as restaurants, theaters, and public buildings such as city halls, museams, adn police stations. ...

The UN General assembly is pretty clearly not a "legislature". That word means a body empowered to make binding laws, which neither the UN as a whole nor the GA is. I have seen the UN as a whole called an "international organization" and an "inter-governmental organization". I have not seen any discussion of the proper term for ...

Yes However, in Australia there has been a dedicated push to reduce the use of Latin terms to those that have entered the general English vernacular or that refer to specific procedures in the legal system. So it’s OK for a lawyer to use de facto or certiorari but frowned upon (as in, the judge will usually say “In English, please”) to use de die in diem.

I have never seen this term used in English or American jurisprudence (or at all, for that matter in English). The usual English translation for the legal term "predial" (also spelled "praedial"), which is used mostly in Louisiana and the Caribbean would be "agricultural". For example, "agricultural larceny" or "...

What does this mean in this engagement letter? The statement means that you will not oppose your lawyer's legal entitlement to (1) reimbursement of litigation costs he incurred and (2) payment (i.e., fees) for his services in the event that the lease is terminated. Since the clause is in terms of "assigns", it purportedly refers to recovering from ...

There isn't a legal term The legally recognised doctrine of respondeat superior simply requires that an agent is acting within the scope of their obligations to their principal. If they are then the principal is liable for their actions. In a criminal rather than a legal sense, the relevant crime is conspiricy - where two or more people plan a joint criminal ...
