10. Other important terms
10.1 Headings and Interpretation. The section titles in these Terms are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect. The word “including” means “including without limitation”.
10.2 We may transfer these Terms to someone else. We may transfer our rights and obligations under these Terms to another organisation – for example, this could include another member of our group of companies or someone who buys our business. We will always tell you in writing if this happens and we will ensure that the transfer will not affect your rights under these Terms.
10.3 Nobody else has any rights under these Terms. These Terms are between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms.
10.4 If a court finds part of these Terms illegal, the rest will continue in force. Each of the Sections of these Terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining Sections will remain in full force and effect.
10.5 Even if we delay in enforcing these Terms, 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 these Terms, 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.
10.6 The laws that apply to these Terms and where you may bring legal proceedings. These Terms are governed by English law and we both agree to submit to the non‑exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts. This means that if you reside in the EU, you may bring a claim to enforce your consumer protection rights in connection with these Terms in England or in the EU country in which you live.
