2.3 These Terms shall represent the entire agreement between the parties. The Client acknowledges that it has not relied on any statement, promise or representation made or given by or on behalf of the Business which is not set out in the Terms. Any samples, drawings, descriptive matter or advertising issued by the Business, and any descriptions or illustrations contained in the Business's literature, are issued or published for the sole purpose of giving an approximate idea of the Services described in them. They shall not form part of the Terms or any other contract between the Business and the Client for the supply of the Services.
2.4 These Terms apply to the exclusion of any other terms that the Client seeks to impose or incorporate, or which are implied by trade, custom, practice or course of dealing.

3.1 The Business shall supply the Services to the Client and warrants to the Client that the Services will be provided using reasonable care and skill.
3.2 The Business shall use all reasonable endeavours to meet any performance dates specified in the Client’s Order, but any such dates shall be estimates only and time shall not be of the essence for performance of the Services.
3.3 The Business shall have the right to make any changes to the Services which are necessary to comply with any applicable law requirement, or which do not materially affect the nature or quality of the Services, and the Business shall notify the Client in any such event.

a. co-operate with the Business in all matters relating to the Services;

a. the Business shall without limiting its other rights or remedies have the right to suspend performance of the Services until the Client remedies the Client Default, and to rely on the Client Default to relieve it from the performance of any of its obligations to the extent the Client Default prevents or delays the Business's performance of any of its obligations;
b. the Business shall not be liable for any costs or losses sustained or incurred by the Client arising directly or indirectly from the Business's failure or delay to perform any of its obligations as set out in this clause 4.1; and
c. the Client shall reimburse the Business on written demand for any costs or losses sustained or incurred by the Business arising directly or indirectly from the Client Default.
5.1 Unless specifically agreed in writing, time for completion of any work is not essential.

5.6 All amounts payable by the Client under the Terms are exclusive of amounts in respect of value added tax chargeable for the time being (VAT). Where any taxable supply for VAT purposes is made under the Terms by the Business to the Client, the Client shall, on receipt of a valid VAT invoice from the Business, pay to the Business such additional amounts in respect of VAT as are chargeable on the supply of the Services at the same time as payment is due for the supply of the Services.
5.7 The Client shall pay all amounts due in full without any deduction or withholding except as required by law and the Client shall not be entitled to assert any credit, set-off or counterclaim against the Business in order to justify withholding payment of any such amount in whole or in part. The Business may, without limiting its other rights or remedies, set off any amount owing to it by the Client against any amount payable by the Business to the Client.

The Receiving Party shall restrict disclosure of such confidential information to such of its employees, agents or subcontractors as need to know it for the purpose of discharging the Receiving Party's obligations under the Terms, and shall ensure that such employees, agents or subcontractors are subject to obligations of confidentiality corresponding to those which bind the Receiving Party. This clause 7 shall survive termination of the Terms.
8.1 The Business reserves the right to make changes to any of the Terms, including the Services contained in this Schedule (whether by agreement or unilaterally if agreement cannot be reached).

9.2 Except in the case of death or personal injury caused by the Business’ negligence, the Business’ total liability to the Client, whether arising in contract, tort (including negligence), breach of statutory duty, or otherwise arising under or in connection with the Terms shall not exceed the Charges paid to the Business under these Terms.

Neither Party shall have any liability under or be deemed to be in breach of these Terms for any delays or failures in performance of these Terms which result from circumstances beyond the reasonable control of that Party. The Party affected by such circumstances shall promptly notify the other Party in writing when such circumstances cause a delay or failure in performance and when they cease to do so. If such circumstances continue for a continuous period of more than 6 months, either Party may terminate this Agreement by written notice to the other Party.
12.2 Assignment. Subject to the following sentence, neither Party may assign, delegate, sub-contract, mortgage, charge or otherwise transfer any or all of its rights and obligations under these Terms without the prior written agreement of the other Party. A Party may, however, assign and transfer all its rights and obligations under these Terms to any person to which it transfers all of its business, provided that the assignee undertakes in writing to the other Party to be bound by the obligations of the assignor under this Agreement.
12.3 Entire agreement. These Terms contain the whole agreement between the parties and supersedes and replaces any prior written or oral agreements, representations or understandings between them. The parties confirm that they have not entered into these Terms on the basis of any representation that is not expressly incorporated into these Terms. Nothing in these Terms excludes liability for fraud.

The rights and remedies provided in these Terms are cumulative and not exclusive of any rights and remedies provided by law.
12.5 Agency, partnership etc. These Terms shall not constitute or imply any partnership, joint venture, agency, fiduciary relationship or other relationship between the Parties other than the contractual relationship expressly provided for in these Terms.

Any notice or other communication shall be deemed to have been received: if sent by pre-paid first class post or other next working day delivery service, at 9.00 am on the second Business Day after posting or at the time recorded by the delivery service; or, if sent by email, at the time of transmission, or if this transmission falls outside of business hours, at 9am on the next business day after transmission.
c. This clause does not apply to the service of any proceedings or other documents in any legal action or, where applicable, any other method of dispute resolution.
