13.           Consequences of termination

  • Upon termination of this Agreement for any reason:
    • the Customer shall immediately cease to access, and discontinue all use of, the Product(s) and Service;
    • all amounts payable to Rotageek by the Customer shall become immediately due and owing. For the avoidance of doubt, except where terminated in accordance with clause ‎2 (during the Evaluation Period) no refund of fees paid in advance shall be due in respect of any unexpired portion of the then-current term; and
    • Rotageek shall use its reasonable endeavours to make available to the Customer, within 30 days of the effective date of termination, a file of Customer Data, if the Customer so requests at the time notice of termination is provided, except that Rotageek shall be under no obligation to do so where this Agreement is terminated by reason of the Customer's breach.
  • The termination of this Agreement for any reason will not affect:
    • any accrued rights or liabilities which either party may have by the time termination takes effect; or
    • the coming into force or the continuation in force of any of its provisions that expressly or by implication are intended to come into force or continue in force on or after the termination. Without prejudice to the foregoing, clauses ‎1, ‎5, ‎6, ‎7, ‎8, ‎9, ‎10, ‎13 and ‎15 shall survive termination of this Agreement.

14.           Force majeure

Neither party will be liable to the other for any failure or delay in performing its obligations under this Agreement which arises because of any circumstances which it cannot reasonably be expected to control (which shall include but are not limited to an Act of God, explosion, flood, tempest, fire or accident, war or threat of war, sabotage, insurrection, civil disturbance or requisition, acts, restrictions, regulations, bye-laws, prohibitions or measures of any kind on the part of any governmental, parliamentary or local authority, import or export regulations or embargoes, strikes, lock-outs or other industrial actions or trade disputes (whether involving personnel of Rotageek or a third party), difficulties in obtaining raw materials, labour, fuel, parts or machinery or breakdown in machinery, or interruption or failure of the Internet or of any network, telecommunications, power supply or infrastructure, or any provider of any of the foregoing, but shall not include shortage or lack of available funds on the Customer's part), provided that it:

  • notifies the other in writing as soon as reasonably practicable about the nature and extent of the circumstances and likely effects;
  • uses reasonable efforts to mitigate the effects of the circumstances so as to minimise or avoid any adverse impact on the other; and
  • uses reasonable efforts to resume performance as soon as reasonably practicable.

15.           General

  • The Customer may not sub-license or assign, sub-contract or delegate any or all of its rights or obligations under this Agreement without the prior written consent of Rotageek.
  • All notices and consents relating to this Agreement (but excluding any proceedings or other documents in any legal action) must be in writing. Notices must be sent to the address of the recipient set out in the Front Sheet or otherwise notified by the relevant party in accordance with this Agreement. Notices shall be sent by hand, by first class recorded delivery or registered post or other form of certified or registered mail (and sent by air mail if posted to or from a place outside the United Kingdom), and shall be treated as having been delivered:
    • if sent by hand, when delivered; and
    • if sent by certified or registered mail, two days after the date of posting (or, if sent by air mail, seven days after the date of posting).

    • fails to exercise or delays exercising or only exercises partially any right or remedy provided under this Agreement or by law; or

  • If any provision of this Agreement is held for any reason to be ineffective or unenforceable, this shall not affect the validity or enforceability of any other provision of this Agreement or this Agreement as a whole. If any provision of this Agreement is so found to be ineffective or unenforceable but would be effective or enforceable if some part of the provision were deleted, the provision in question shall apply with such modification(s) as may be necessary to make it effective and enforceable.
  • All variations to this Agreement must be agreed, set out in writing and signed on behalf of both parties before they take effect.
  • Except to the extent that this Agreement expressly provides otherwise, nothing in this Agreement shall or is intended to create a partnership or joint venture between the parties, constitute one party as agent of the other or give either party authority to make or enter into commitments, assume liabilities or pledge credit on behalf of the other party. Neither party may act as if it were, or represent (expressly or by implying it) that it is, an agent of the other or has such authority.
  • A person who is not a party to this Agreement shall not have any rights under or in connection with it, whether under the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 or otherwise.
  • It is a condition of this Agreement that, in pre-contract negotiations and in the exercise of its rights or the performance of its obligations under this Agreement, each party shall at all times ensure that it complies with the terms of the Bribery Act 2010 and that it does not commit (or procure the commission of) any breach of that Act.
  • This Agreement sets out all of the terms that have been agreed between the parties in relation to the subjects covered by it, and supersedes all previous agreements between the parties relating to such subjects. Provided always that nothing in this clause ‎9 will operate to limit or exclude any liability for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation, no other representations or terms shall apply or form part of this Agreement and each party acknowledges that it has not been influenced to enter this Agreement by, and shall have no rights or remedies (other than for breach of contract) in respect of, anything the other party has said or done or committed to do, except as expressly recorded in this Agreement.
  • This Agreement is governed by English law. Both parties submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts in relation to any dispute arising out of or in connection with this Agreement or its subject matter, but Rotageek is also entitled to apply to any court worldwide for injunctive or other remedies in order to protect or enforce its Intellectual Property Rights.
