11. EVENTS OUTSIDE OF OUR CONTROL

11.1 We will not be liable or responsible for any failure to carry out, or delay in carrying out, any of Our obligations under the Contract where that delay or failure is caused by an event outside Our reasonable control. Examples include extreme weather, a pandemic or epidemic, industrial action, lock-outs, sit-ins or other protests, riots, terrorism, sabotage, acts of war, destruction or damage of essential equipment by fire, explosion, flood or reduction or unavailability of power or other essential services (such as water).

11.2 We will take reasonable steps to find a way in which We can carry out Our obligations under the Contract despite the event outside of our control (which may include rescheduling the Event or moving the Event’s location). However, if we are unable to carry out Our obligations under the Contract, We may cancel the Event and terminate the Contract in accordance with Clause 10.6.

12.3 The Contract is between You and Us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms.

12.4 Each of the Clauses of the Contract operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining Clauses will remain in full force and effect.

12.5 If We do not insist immediately that You do anything You are required to do under the Contract, or if We delay in taking steps against You in respect of Your breach of the Contract, 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.

13. GOVERNING LAW AND JURISDICTION

13.1 The Contract is governed by Scots law.

13.2 If You want to bring legal proceedings against Us, You must bring those proceedings to the Scottish courts.
