  1. GENERAL

11.1 No variation of this Agreement or any Order Form will be valid unless it is agreed in writing and signed by both of the parties. Failure or delay in exercising any right or remedy under this Agreement or any Order Form will not constitute a waiver of such (or any other) right or remedy.

11.2 If any provision of this Agreement or Order Form (or part of any provision) is found by any court or other authority of  competent jurisdiction to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable, that provision or part-provision will, to the extent required,  be deemed not to form part of the Agreement or Order Form as applicable and (a) the parties will immediately commence  good faith negotiations to remedy such invalidity; and (b) the validity and enforceability of the other provisions of the  Agreement or Order Form as applicable will not be affected.

11.3 This Agreement and the applicable Order Form constitutes the whole agreement between the parties and supersedes any previous arrangement, understanding or agreement between them relating to the subject matter of this Agreement and the applicable Order Form. Each party acknowledges that in entering into this Agreement or any Order Form it has not relied upon any oral or written statements, collateral or other warranties, assurances, representations or undertakings which were  made by or on behalf of the other party in relation to the subject-matter of this Agreement or an Order Form at any time  before its signature other than those which are set out in this Agreement or any Order Form. Furthermore, and for the avoidance of doubt, Client understands its business needs and has determined independently that the Services will meet its needs.

11.4 Neither party will be liable for any delay or non-performance of its obligations under this Agreement or any Order Form to the extent that such delay or non-performance is a result of any condition beyond its reasonable control (a “Force  Majeure Event”). To the extent that a Force Majeure Event occurs, Client acknowledges that Propflo may be required (and will be permitted) to change the manner in which it provides the Services.

11.5 Except as expressly stated otherwise, nothing in this Agreement or any Order Form will create an agency, partnership or joint venture of any kind between the parties. Neither party will have authority to act in the name of or on behalf of the  other, or to enter into any commitment or make any representation or warranty or otherwise bind the other in any way.

11.6 Neither party may assign any of its rights or obligations under this Agreement without the prior written consent of the other such consent not to be unreasonably withheld save that either party can, provided not to a direct competitor, assign this Agreement by operation of law, or in connection with a merger, change of control, sale of assets or other similar transaction.

11.7 The Client acknowledges and agrees that the supply of the Reports and Services by Propflo and their use by the Client is governed by laws and regulatory requirements and that these laws and regulatory requirements may be altered from time to time. The Client agrees that Propflo may: (a) modify; or (b) cease to provide the Services (including the Reports, the Content and the Site) to the Client if necessary to comply with the legal or regulatory requirements, and that such modifications or a cessation will not be deemed to be a breach of this Agreement.

11.8 All notices must be in English, in writing, and sent by email to the address for Legal notices as set out in the Order Form, or such other address as either party has notified the other in accordance with this clause (a “Notice”).

11.9 The parties will: (i) comply with all applicable Anti-Corruption Laws; (ii) promptly report to the other party any request or demand for any undue financial or other advantage of any kind received by it in connection with the performance of  this Agreement; (iii) cooperate regarding investigations by the other Party into any matters related to bribery and  corruption in connection with this Agreement.

11.10 Charges specified in this Agreement are exclusive of any sales or consumption taxes. The Client will be responsible for, and agrees to pay, all applicable sales or consumption taxes on the services (or goods) provided hereunder (including, sales tax, use tax, excise tax, services tax, value added tax, goods and services tax) imposed by any governmental authority having jurisdiction on all items, goods and/or Services being paid for by the Client hereunder. Any and all payments or reimbursements made hereunder shall be made free and clear of and without deduction for any and all taxes, levies, imports, deductions, charges or withholdings. If the Client is required by law to deduct such taxes from or in respect of any sum payable hereunder to Propflo then the sum payable hereunder shall be increased as may be necessary so that, after all deductions are made, the Propflo receives an amount equal to the sum it would have received had no such deductions been made. The Parties will cooperate and take all steps reasonably and lawfully available to them to minimise such taxes and to obtain double taxation relief. If the Client withholds any such amounts from the fees, the Client will provide Propflo with a statement of withholding tax within 30 days from the withholding. Propflo confirms to the Client that it is a resident of the United Kingdom. Unless otherwise agreed, the party that is liable for payment of any tax upon which interest and penalties are imposed shall bear such interest and penalties. In the event Propflo suffers any fines, penalties or charges due to the Client’s non-compliance with this Clause, or the Client fails to comply with the relevant tax legislation and regulations in respect of the Charges, the Client will indemnify Propflo for such costs.

11.11 Except in respect of any transfer of staff pursuant to applicable law, neither party shall (except with the prior written  consent of the other party) directly or indirectly solicit or entice away (or attempt to solicit or entice away) from the  employment of the other party any person employed or engaged by such other party in the provision of the Services or  (in the case of the Client) in the receipt of the Services at any time during the Term or for a further period of 3 months  after the termination of this Agreement other than by means of a national advertising campaign open to all comers and  not specifically targeted at any of the staff of the other party.

11.12 Client will comply with all applicable export control and sanctions laws and regulations of any applicable governmental authority, (“Export Control and Sanctions Laws”). Client will not engage in any transactions with: (i) any User, entity,  or country prohibited by Export Control and Sanctions Laws, including, without limitation, the prohibition against  transactions with: (A) a national or resident of, any country subject to U.S. sanctions or similar restrictions (currently,  Cuba, Iran, Syria, North Korea and the region Crimea), or (B) anyone on the U.S. Treasury Department’s list of Specially  Designated Nationals or other sanctions lists (“OFAC Lists”). Client represents and warrants that it is not a person on an OFAC List and that it is not located in a country subject to sanctions.

11.13 Any and all claims for loss arising under this Agreement will be subject to a general obligation of the parties to use all reasonable efforts to mitigate such losses.

11.14 Except as expressly stated otherwise, nothing in this Agreement will create or confer any rights or other benefits in favour of any person other than the parties to this Agreement.

11.15 This Agreement and all Order Forms and all disputes and claims arising out of or in connection with them are governed by English law.
