provided that, if receipt is not within Normal Business Hours on a Business Day, delivery shall be deemed to be when business next starts in the place of receipt.
12. Dispute Resolution
12.1. If a dispute arises out of or in connection with this EULA (a "Dispute") then the parties shall follow the procedure set out in this clause 12:
12.1.1. either party shall give to the other written notice of the Dispute, setting out its nature and full particulars (a "Dispute Notice"), together with relevant supporting documents. On service of the Dispute Notice, the parties shall attempt in good faith to resolve the Dispute;
12.1.2. refer the Dispute to a mutually-agreed third-party mediator within 14 days of receipt of the Dispute Notice.
12.2. If the Dispute is not resolved by mediation, then either party may commence court proceedings, but provided that nothing in this clause 12.2 shall prevent either party from either continuing with any means of alternative dispute resolution as may be agreed in writing from time to time, or seeking an injunction or other interim relief at any time if it reasonably believes such action is necessary to prevent irreparable damage.
13.1. A natural or legal person who is not a party to this EULA shall have no rights under the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 to enforce any of its terms. This clause does not alter any right or remedy of any person which exists or is available otherwise than pursuant to that Act.

13.2.2. a waiver of any right is only effective if it is in writing and shall not be deemed to be a waiver of any subsequent breach or Default. No failure or delay by a party in exercising any right or remedy under this EULA or by law shall constitute a waiver of that or any other right or remedy, nor preclude or restrict its further exercise. No single or partial exercise of such right or remedy shall preclude or restrict the further exercise of that or any other right or remedy. Unless specifically provided otherwise, rights arising under this EULA are cumulative and do not exclude rights provided by law.
13.3. The construction, validity and performance of this EULA shall be governed by the laws of England and Wales and the parties submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English Courts.
13.4. No delay or omission by the Attendee in exercising any of its rights or remedies under this EULA or under any Applicable Law on any occasion shall be deemed a waiver of, or bar to, the exercise of such right or remedy or any other right or remedy upon any other occasion.
13.5. In the event that any provision of this EULA shall be void or unenforceable by reason of any provision of Applicable Law, it shall be deleted, and the remaining provisions hereof shall continue in full force and effect and, if necessary, be so amended as shall be necessary to give effect to the original intent of this EULA so far as possible.
13.6. Nothing in this EULA is intended to, or shall be deemed to, constitute a partnership or joint venture of any kind between the parties, nor constitute any party the agent of the other party for any purpose. No party shall have authority to act as agent for, or to bind, the other party in any way.
