If a court finds part of this contract illegal, the rest will continue in force. Each of the paragraphs of these terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will.
Even if we delay in enforcing this arrangement, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this order, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date. For example, if you miss a payment and we do not chase you. But, we continue to provide the products/items, we can still require you to make the payment at a later date.
Which laws apply to this order and where you may bring legal proceedings. These terms are governed by English law and you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products/items in the English courts.

If you are not happy with how we have handled any complaint, we suggest you contact the CEDR (Centre for Effective Dispute Resolution) via their website at http://www.cedr.com/consumer in order for the dispute to be resolved prior to take court action. CEDR will not charge you for making a complaint and if you are not satisfied with the outcome you can still bring legal proceedings.
