8.1 The Company may assign this Contract, or any part of it, to any person, firm or company. The Customer may not assign the Contract, or any part of it, without the prior written consent of the Company. Nothing in any Contract is intended to, or shall be deemed to, constitute a partnership or joint venture of any kind between the parties, nor constitute any party as the agent of the other party for any purpose. No party shall have any authority to act as agent for, or to bind, the other party in any way.
8.2 Each right or remedy of the Company arising under the Contract is without prejudice to any other right or remedy of the Company which it may have at law or in equity. Any failure or delay by the Company to enforce (or partially enforce) any such right or remedy or any other provision of the Contract shall not be construed as a waiver of any of its rights under the Contract. Any waiver by the Company of any breach of, or any default under, any provision of this Contract by the Customer shall not be deemed a waiver of any subsequent breach or default and shall in no way affect any of the other terms of the Contract.
8.3 If any provision of the Contract is adjudged by any court or other body of competent jurisdiction to be wholly or partly illegal, invalid, unenforceable of unreasonable, it shall, to the extent of such illegality, invalidity, unenforceability or unreasonableness, be deemed severable from the Contract and the remaining provisions of the Contract, and the remainder of such provision, shall continue in full force and effect.
8.4 Any notice or other communication required to be given to a party under or in connection with any Contract shall be in writing and shall be delivered to the other party personally, or sent by recorded delivery or by commercial courier (i) in the case of the Company, to its principal place of business at Unit 41, Tileyard Studios, Tileyard Road, London, N7 9AH and (ii) in the case of the Customer, to its registered office address (or, failing that, to the address of its principal place of business). Any notice or other communication shall be deemed to have been duly received if delivered personally, when left at such address or, if sent by recorded delivery, at 9.00 am on the second (2nd) working day after posting or, if delivered by commercial courier, on the date and at the time that the courier's delivery receipt is signed. This clause 8.4 shall not apply to the service of any proceedings or other documents in any legal action. For the purposes of this clause 8.4, "writing" does not include e-mails and, for the avoidance of doubt, notice under any Contract shall not be validly served if sent by e-mail.
8.5 Save where expressly provided, the parties do not intend that any term of the Contract should be enforceable by virtue of the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 by any person that is not a party to it. No amendment to the Contract shall be effective unless made in writing and signed by a director of the Company and the Customer. The Contract shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, English Law and the parties hereto shall submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English Courts in connection with any dispute arising in connection with the Contract.
