14.2 Failure of either party to assert its rights in relation to any breach of the Contract shall not constitute a waiver of such rights, nor will any such waiver be implied.

14.3 Each provision of these Conditions shall be construed separately and shall be severable from these Conditions. If any provision of these Conditions (or portion thereof) is invalid, illegal or unenforceable, the validity, legality or enforceability of the remainder of these Conditions will not be affected or impaired.

14.4 The headings of these Conditions are for convenience only.

14.5 Any communication to be given in connection with the matters contemplated by the Contract shall, except where expressly provided otherwise, be in writing and shall either be delivered by electronic mail (e-mail), hand or sent by pre-paid post. Delivery by courier shall be regarded as delivery by hand. Any notices served under the Contract shall be deemed to have been served as follows:

if personally delivered to the registered office of one of the parties, on delivery; and 

if sent by pre-paid post, after the same was delivered to the postal authorities. 

14.6 Each party agrees that in entering into the Contract it has not relied on, and shall have no remedy in respect of, any statement, representation, warranty or understanding (whether negligently or innocently made) of any person (whether party to the Contract or not) other than as expressly set out in the Contract for which its sole remedy shall be for breach of Contract under the terms of the Contract. Nothing in this Clause shall, however, operate to limit or exclude any liability for fraud.

14.7 A person who is not a party to the Contract shall have no right under the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 to enforce any of its terms.

14.8 The Contract constitutes the entire agreement between you and us with respect to the subject matter hereof, and supersedes all prior discussions, agreement or understanding between you and us.
