15. OTHER IMPORTANT TERMS

 

15.1 We may transfer this agreement to someone else. We may transfer our rights and obligations under these terms to another organisation. We will always tell you in writing if this happens and we will ensure that the transfer will not affect your rights under the contract.

 

15.2 Force majeure: We shall have no liability to you under these terms if we are prevented from or delayed in performing obligations under these terms by events beyond our reasonable control.

 

15.3 Update: We may update or change our terms from time to time. The terms that will apply are those in force at the time that services are provided to you. It is your responsibility to check that the terms in place at the time that services are provided to you are acceptable to you.

15.8 If a court finds part of this contract illegal, the rest will continue in force. Each of the paragraphs of these terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.

 

15.9 Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date.

 

15.10 Which laws apply to this contract and where you may bring legal proceedings. These terms and any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with them or their subject matter or the formation of any agreement between us (including non-contractual disputes or claims) shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of England. You irrevocably agree that the courts of England shall have exclusive jurisdiction to settle any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with our dealing with one another (including non-contractual disputes or claims).
