An Event Outside the Event Provider’s Control is defined below in Clause 13.2 below.

 

13.2.     An Event Outside the Event Provider’s Control means any act or event beyond the reasonable control of the Event Provider, including without limitation strikes, lock-outs or other industrial action by third parties, civil commotion, riot, invasion, terrorist attack or threat of terrorist attack, war (whether declared or not) or threat or preparation for war, fire, explosion, storm, flood, earthquake, subsidence, epidemic or other natural disaster, or failure of public or private telecommunications networks or impossibility of the use of railways, shipping, aircraft, motor transport or other means of public or private transport.

14.        OTHER IMPORTANT TERMS

 

14.1.     We may transfer our rights and obligations under a Contract to another    organisation or person, but this will not affect your rights or our obligations under these Terms. We will notify you by posting on our website if this happens.

 

14.2.     You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under these Terms to another person if we agree in writing.

 

14.3.     Each Clause and Sub-Clause of these Terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful or unenforceable, the remaining Clauses and Sub-Clauses will remain in full force and effect.

 

14.4.     If we or an Event Provider fail to insist that you perform any of your obligations under these Terms, or if we or an Event Provider do not enforce Our rights against you, or if we or an Event Provider delay in doing so, that will not mean that we or an Event Provider have waived our respective rights against you and will not mean that you do not have to comply with those

obligations. If we or an Event Provider do waive a default by you, we or an Event Provider will only do so in writing, and that will not mean that we or an Event provider will automatically waive any later default by you.

 

14.5.     These Terms are governed by Scottish law. This means that a Contract, and any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with it or its subject matter or formation (including non-contractual disputes or claims), will be governed by Scottish law. You agree to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of Scotland.
