- Further important terms
We may transfer our rights and obligations under these Terms to another organisation, but this will not affect your rights or our obligations.
You may only transfer your rights or obligations to another person if we agree in writing.
If we fail to insist that you perform any of your obligations under these Terms, or if we do not enforce our rights against you, or if we delay in doing so, that will not mean that we have waived our rights against you and will not mean that you do not have to comply with those obligations. If we do waive a default by you, we will only do so in writing, and that will not mean that we will automatically waive any later default by you.
Each of the Conditions of these Terms operates separately. If any court or competent authority decides that any of them are unlawful or unenforceable, the remaining Conditions will remain in full force and effect.
These Terms, its subject matter and its formation, are governed by English law. You and we both agree that the courts of England and Wales will have exclusive jurisdiction.
