Public videos may be streamed from YouTube and are subject to YouTube Terms of Service.
RAWG and its content are delivered on an “as-is” and “as-available” basis. We will use reasonable endeavours to make RAWG available at all times. However, there may be occasions when access to RAWG may be interrupted, including for scheduled maintenance or upgrades, for emergency repairs, or due to failure of telecommunications links or equipment. We also cannot promise that any defects will be corrected, or that your use of RAWG will provide specific results.
You use RAWG at your own risk.

If any part of these Terms is held to be unenforceable, it shall not affect the enforceability of any other part of the Terms, and the rest of the Terms shall be interpreted in such a way as to reflect the intentions of the parties as far as possible.
No waiver shall be effective unless in writing, and no waiver shall constitute a continuing waiver so as to prevent us or you from acting upon any continuing or subsequent breach or default.
These Terms and any dispute, claim or obligation (whether contractual or non-contractual) arising out of or in connection with these Terms or their subject matter or formation shall be governed by the laws of Lithuania. All disputes shall be submitted to the jurisdiction of the courts of the country the laws of which are applicable in a particular case.
