15. GENERAL PROVISIONS

 

15.1 This Agreement, including all attachments hereto and all Orders, represents the parties’ entire understanding relating to the Services, and supersedes any prior or contemporaneous, conflicting or additional communications. Orders may be executed in one or more counterparts, each of which shall be an original, but taken together constituting one and the same instrument. Execution of a facsimile/electronic copy shall have the same force and effect as execution of an original, and a facsimile/ electronic signature shall be deemed an original and valid signature. If any provision of the Agreement is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid or unenforceable, then such provision(s) shall be construed to reflect the intentions of the invalid or unenforceable provision(s), with all other provisions remaining in full force and effect. Nothing in this section shall operate to exclude any representations made by a party fraudulently.

 

15.2 In the event that either party is prevented from performing, or is unable to perform, any of its obligations under this Agreement (except payment obligations) due to any cause beyond its reasonable control, the affected party shall give written notice thereof to the other party and its performance shall be extended for the period of delay or inability to perform due to such occurrence.

 

15.3 This Agreement and the rights and obligations hereunder may not be assigned, in whole or in part, by either party without the other party’s written consent, not to be unreasonably withheld. Notwithstanding the foregoing, without consent, Stitcht may assign or transfer its rights and obligations under the Agreement (i) to any of its affiliates or (ii) to any successor to all or substantially all of its business (whether by sale of assets or equity, merger, conversion, consolidation or otherwise). For the purpose of this section “affiliate” means a subsidiary or holding company of Stitcht or any subsidiary of any holding company of Stitcht. Any assignment in violation of this section shall be deemed null and void ab initio. This Agreement shall be binding upon, and inure to the benefit of, the successors, representatives and permitted assignees of the parties hereto.

15.4 The parties shall be independent contractors under this Agreement, and nothing herein will constitute either party as the employer, employee, agent or representative of the other party, or both parties as joint venturers or partners for any purpose.

 

15.5 Except as specifically provided otherwise herein, each right and remedy in this Agreement is in addition to any other right or remedy, at law or in equity. Each party agrees that, in the event of any breach or threatened breach of Section 5 or 8, the non-breaching party will suffer irreparable damage for which it will have no adequate remedy at law. Accordingly, the non-breaching party shall be entitled to seek injunctive and other equitable remedies to prevent or restrain such breach or threatened breach, without the necessity of posting any bond.

15.6 This Agreement governed by and construed in accordance with the law of England and Wales and subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts.
