Laws

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.

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.

These terms are governed by English law, and you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in the English courts. If you live in Scotland, you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in either the Scottish or the English courts. If you live in Northern Ireland, you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in either the Northern Irish or the English courts.
