No failure or omission by any party to carry out or observe these Terms will give rise to any claim against you or us or be deemed a breach of these Terms if such failure or omission arises from any cause reasonably beyond the control of you or us provided that this clause will not extend to excuse the consequences of insolvency or financial difficulty.

No failure by you or us to enforce any of the rights under these Terms shall be considered a waiver of those rights and no failure to enforce any subsequent breach of these Terms shall be considered a waiver of those rights in respect of a subsequent breach of any term or condition.

If any provision of these Terms is, or becomes, unenforceable, illegal or invalid for any reason, the relevant provision shall be deemed to be modified to the extent necessary to remedy such unenforceability, illegality or invalidity.

No amendment or variation of these Terms shall be binding unless it is in writing and signed by you and us. You may not assign or purport to assign any of your rights or obligations under these Terms without the prior written consent by us.

These Terms are to be governed by the laws of New Zealand and the parties submit to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the Courts of New Zealand.

If any parts of these Terms are deemed not enforceable, or against the law by a suitable authority, the remainder of these Terms shall remain in force. All other Terms shall be unaffected by the provision that cannot be enforced.
