If the Supplier fails to insist that the Buyer performs any of its obligations under these Conditions, or if the Supplier does not enforce its rights against the Buyer, or if the Supplier delays in doing so, that will not mean that the Supplier has waived its rights against the Buyer and will not mean that the Buyer does not have to comply with those obligations. If the Supplier does waive a default by the Buyer, the Supplier will only do so in writing, and that will not mean that the Supplier will automatically waive any later default by the Buyer.
21.3. Each of the paragraphs of these Conditions operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
21.4. A person who is not a party to the Contract shall not have any rights under or in connection with it.
21.5. If the Buyer is a consumer, these Conditions are governed by English law. The Supplier and Buyer both agree that the English courts shall have exclusive jurisdiction to settle any dispute or claim. However, if the Buyer is a resident of Northern Ireland it may also bring proceedings in Northern Ireland, and if the Buyer is a resident of Scotland, it may also bring proceedings in Scotland.
21.6. If the Buyer is a business, these Conditions 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) shall be governed by English law. The Supplier and Buyer irrevocably agree that the English courts shall have exclusive jurisdiction to settle any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with a Contract or its subject matter or formation (including non-contractual disputes or claims).
