2.11 Disputes: In the event of a dispute concerning the calculation of the RPI or the adjusted subscription fee, the parties agree to negotiate in good faith to resolve the matter.

17. Other Important Terms

17.1. UMA may transfer its rights and obligations under this Licence to another organisation, but this will not affect your rights under this Licence. If the Customer objects to this transfer, they must notify UMA within writing within 48 hours of the notification being made. 17.2. You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under this Licence to another third-party if UMA is consulted and agrees with the transfer in writing.

17.3. In the event that either party is unable to perform any of its obligations under this Agreement (except for payment obligations) because of causes beyond its reasonable control, including scheduled or unscheduled maintenance or repair, accident to equipment or machinery; any fire, flood, hurricane, tornado, storm or other weather condition; any war, act of war, act of public enemy, terrorist act, sabotage, riot, civil disorder, act or decree of any governmental body; any failure of communications lines, transportation, light, electricity or power; any earthquake, civil disturbance, commotion, lockout, strike or other labour or industrial disturbance; or any illness, epidemic, pandemic, quarantine, death or any other natural or artificial disaster, the party who has been so affected shall promptly give written notice to the other party and shall use commercially reasonable efforts to resume performance. Upon receipt of such written notice, all obligations under this Agreement that cannot be performed because of such event or circumstance shall be immediately suspended and performance times shall be considered extended for a period of time equivalent to the time lost because of any such delay. 17.4. This Licence and any document expressly referred to in it constitutes the entire agreement between UMA and you and supersedes and extinguishes all previous agreements, promises, assurances, warranties, representations and understandings with UMA, whether written or oral, relating to its subject matter. You agree that you shall have no remedies in respect of any statement, representation, assurance or warranty (whether made innocently or negligently) that is not set out in this Licence or any document expressly referred to in it. You agree that you shall have no claim for innocent or negligent misrepresentation or negligent misstatement based on any statement in this Licence or any document expressly referred to in it. 17.5. If UMA fails to insist that you perform any of your obligations under this Licence, or if UMA does not enforce its rights against you, or if UMA delays in doing so, that will not mean that UMA has waived its rights against you and will not mean that you do not have to comply with those obligations. If UMA does waive a default by you, UMA will only do so in writing signed by UMA, and that will not mean that UMA will automatically waive any later default by you. 17.6. Each of the conditions of this Licence operates separately. If any court or competent authority decides that any of them are unlawful or unenforceable, the remaining conditions will remain in full force and effect. 17.7. This Licence, its subject matter and its formation (and any non-contractual disputes or claims) are governed by English law and subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of England and Wales.
