The Licensee acknowledges that gC has no responsibility for the delivery of the gC Data by the Channel to the Licensee and that, if any agreement between the Licensee and the Channel is suspended, expires or terminates, gC shall cease to be obliged to deliver or provide the gC Data to the Channel and shall make the gC Data available to the Licensee via the alternative Delivery Method agreed in writing by the Parties.

19. General

19.1 Entire Agreement: The Agreement contains the entire agreement and understanding of the Parties regarding any and all rights in, provision of and/or use of the gC Data and supersedes any prior agreement, understanding or arrangement between the Parties, whether oral or in writing, regarding them. Each Party agrees that in entering into the Agreement it does not rely on (and shall have no liability in respect of) any statement, representation, warranty or understanding (unless made fraudulently) by the other Party or any other person, except as expressly set out in the Agreement. Each Party’s only remedies for breach of the Agreement shall be for breach of contract as provided in the Agreement.

19.2 Further Assurance: Each Party shall, at the request of the other Party and at its own cost, do (and use reasonable endeavours to procure that others do) everything necessary to give full effect to the Agreement.

19.3 Counterparts: The Agreement may be executed in one or more counterparts, and by different Parties on separate counterparts, each of which shall be an original and all of which together shall constitute a single instrument.

19.4 Severability: If and to the extent that any term of the Agreement (or any part of any term) is found by any court or other authority of competent jurisdiction or agreed by the Parties to be illegal, invalid or unenforceable under any Applicable Law, such term shall, insofar as it is severable from the remaining terms, be deemed to be deleted from the Agreement without in any way affecting the legality, validity or enforceability of the remaining terms of the Agreement.

19.5 Survival: The expiry or termination for any reason of the Agreement shall not affect any right and/or liability of any Party which has accrued before expiry or termination or any provision of the Agreement which expressly or by implication is intended to come into or continue in force on or after expiry or termination (as appropriate), including Clauses 1, 2, 4.2, 4.4, 4.5, 4.6, 6, 9, 10, 11.3, 11.5, 12 to 14 and 17 to 19 (inclusive) which shall survive expiry or termination of the Agreement.

19.6 Waiver: No forbearance or delay by any Party in exercising or enforcing any right (nor the continued performance of the Agreement) shall prejudice or restrict the rights of that Party. No waiver of any right or of any breach of the Agreement shall be deemed to be a waiver of any other right or other or subsequent breach. No single or partial exercise of any right or remedy shall restrict the further exercise of that or any other right or remedy.

19.7 Assignment: The Licensee may not assign, novate or otherwise transfer the Agreement or any or all of its rights, liabilities or obligations under the Agreement to a third party without the prior written consent of gC. gC may assign, novate or otherwise transfer, or sub-contract, any or all of its rights, liabilities and/or obligations under the Agreement. gC shall be liable for the acts and omissions of any of its sub-contractors.

19.8 Rights of Third Parties: Save in respect of the rights of the gC Parties to enforce any of the provisions of the Agreement expressly or impliedly for their benefit, nothing in the Agreement is intended to confer any benefit on any third party (other than any Named Affiliate(s) and the Users) or to be enforceable by any person who is not a Party, whether under the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 or otherwise.
