13. Safe Harbor' Statement under the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995

The information on this website may contain certain forward-looking statements with respect to the financial condition, results of operations and business of Philips and certain of the plans and objectives of Philips with respect to these items. Philips cautions readers that no forward-looking statement is a guarantee of future performance and that actual results could differ materially from those contained in the forward-looking statements. Examples of forward-looking statements include the statements Philips has made about Philips strategy, estimates of sales growth, future EBITA and cost savings, future developments in Philips organic business as well as the benefit of future acquisitions, and Philips capital position. By their nature, forward-looking statements involve risk and uncertainty because they relate to future events and circumstances and there are many factors that could cause actual results and developments to differ materially from those expressed or implied by these forward-looking statements. The forward looking statements are subject to, among other things, domestic and global economic and business conditions, the successful implementation of Philips strategy, Philips ability to identify and complete successful acquisitions and to integrate those acquisitions into Philips business, consumer preferences with respect to Philips existing and new products, the ability to develop and market new products, the ability to realize the benefits of this strategy, the policies and actions of governmental and regulatory authorities, changes in legislation, and the impact of competition – a number of which factors are beyond Philips control. As a result, Philips actual future results may differ materially from the plans, goals, and expectations set forth in such forward-looking statements. Additional risks and factors are identified in Philips documents filed with or furnished to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) including in Philips most recent Annual Report on Form 20-F, which is available on the SEC’s website at www.sec.gov. Any forward-looking statements made by or on Philips behalf speak only as of the date they are made. Philips does not undertake to update forward-looking statements to reflect any changes in expectations with regard thereto or any changes in events, conditions or circumstances on which any such statement is based. You should, however, consult any additional disclosures that Philips has made or may make in documents Philips has filed or may file with the SEC.

 

14. Export Control

You shall always observe the applicable provisions of national and international export control regulations and laws, as e.g. the export provisions of the Netherlands, the European Union and the United States of America. Prior to making any disclosure to third parties of the Content, software or any other information obtained via the App, you shall review and take suitable measures to ensure that (1) you will not violate any embargo or bans as such of the European Union, the United States of America and/or the United Nations – also in consideration of any restrictions on domestic transactions and any circumvention bans; or (2) such Content made available are not intended for use in prohibited or permit-requiring activities related to armaments, nuclear technology or weapons, unless any required permits will have been obtained; or (3) the rules of all relevant sanction lists as such of the European Union and the United States of America pertaining to commercial dealings with the companies, persons or organizations appearing on such lists are observed. You shall fully indemnify and hold Philips harmless for any claims asserted by government authorities or other third parties against Philips for non-compliance with the above-mentioned export control obligations by you.

 

15. Dispute Resolution

These Terms of Use shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the state of The Netherlands. You agree to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the courts in Amsterdam, The Netherlands for any disputes, claim or cause of action arising out of, or relating to or in connection with these Terms of Use or your use of this App, including any disputes relating to the existence or validity of these Terms of Use, provided that you agree to submit any such disputes, claims or causes of action exclusively to the courts of Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

 

16. Severability

If any provision of these Terms of Use is held to be invalid or unenforceable, then the invalid or unenforceable provision will be replaced by a valid, enforceable provision that most closely matches the intent of the original provision and the remaining provisions shall be enforced.

 

17. No Waiver

No failure on the part of Philips to enforce any part of these Terms of Use shall constitute a waiver of any of Philips' rights under these Terms of Use, whether for past or future actions on the part of any person. Neither the receipt of any funds by Philips nor the reliance of any person on Philips' actions shall be deemed to constitute a waiver of any part of these Terms of Use. Only a specific, written waiver signed by an authorized representative of Philips shall have any legal effect whatsoever.

 

18. Headings
