5.1 We may transfer our rights and obligations under a Contract to another organisation, but this will not affect your rights or our obligations under these T&Cs.

5.2 You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under these Conditions to another person if we agree in writing. However if you are a consumer and you have purchased a Product as a gift, you may transfer the benefit of the warranty in clause 10 to the recipient of the gift without needing to ask our consent.

5.5 If we fail to insist that you perform any of your obligations under these T&Cs, or if we do not enforce our rights against you, or if we delay in doing so, that will not mean that we have waived our rights against you and will not mean that you do not have to comply with those obligations. If we do waive a default by you, we will only do so in writing, and that will not mean that we will automatically waive any later default by you.

5.6 If you are a consumer, please note that these T&Cs are governed by Scottish law. This means a Contract for the purchase of Products through our site and any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with it will be governed by Scottish law. You and we both agree to that the courts of Scotland will have exclusive jurisdiction.

5.7 If you are a business, these T&Cs are governed by Scottish law. This means that a Contract, and any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with it or its subject matter or formation (including non-contractual disputes or claims), will be governed by Scottish law. We both agree to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of Scotland.

5.8 We will not file a copy of the Contract between us.
