Should the Customer require the data to be returned this will be subject to a formal request in writing from the Customer and BroadShield will have the right to charge for such services.  Charges will be advised upon request.


14.    Confidentiality


14.1.    BroadShield and the Customer each agrees: 


14.1.1.    to keep the other's Confidential Information confidential and, except as permitted elsewhere in these Terms and Conditions, not to disclose that information to any other person, or use it for any purpose except the exercise of its rights, or the performance of its obligations, under these Terms and Conditions;  
14.1.2.    to disclose the other's Confidential Information only on a need-to-know basis to its employees, officers, professional advisers, contractors and suppliers who have given an undertaking similar to that in Condition 14.1.1; and  
14.1.3.    immediately on receipt of a written request from the other party, or on the termination or expiry of any Contract (however it happens), destroy or, at the other's request, deliver to the other, all copies of the other's Confidential Information, and certify to the other that this has been done.  


14.2.    Nothing in Condition 14.1: 


14.2.1.    will prevent either party from disclosing or retaining any of the other's Confidential Information in order to comply with the law or any regulation, or the order of any court or authority of competent jurisdiction, provided that where the Customer is a public authority and receives a Request for Information it complies with Condition 14.3; or  
14.2.2.    applies to any of the other's information that is or comes into the public domain through no breach of Condition 14.1, or that is trivial or obvious, or that by its nature cannot be confidential. 


14.3.    Each party will immediately notify the other if it becomes aware of any breach of  confidence in relation to that other's Confidential Information, and it will give the other any assistance reasonably required in connection with any action or proceedings that the other may institute against any third party for breach of confidence.  


15.    Termination


15.1.    Despite anything else contained in these Terms and Conditions, any Order Form or Service Specification, BroadShield may, at its option, suspend the performance of its obligations or terminate any or all Contracts immediately on giving notice in writing to the Customer if:  


15.1.1.    the Customer fails to pay any amount due under the Contract and that sum remains unpaid for 14 days after BroadShield has given the Customer notice that that amount has not been paid; or  
15.1.2.    the Customer commits any breach of these Terms and Conditions (except a failure to pay when Condition 15.1.1 will apply) and in the case of a breach which is not persistent and which is capable of being remedied, has failed, within 30 days after BroadShield has requested the Customer in writing, to remedy the breach; or  
15.1.3.    the Customer has a receiver or administrative receiver appointed over it or over any part of its undertaking or assets, or it passes a resolution for winding-up (except for the purpose of a bona fide scheme of solvent amalgamation or reconstruction), or if a court of competent jurisdiction makes an order to that effect, or if it becomes subject to an administration order, or if it enters into any voluntary arrangement with its creditors, or if any similar process to any of the above is begun, or if the Customer ceases or threatens to cease to carry on business.  


15.2.    Any suspension of access to any Training Solution on BroadShield’s part will not prejudice its right to terminate a Contract later, for the same or for a different reason. 
15.3.    On the termination or expiry of any Contract (by BroadShield) the Customer’s right to access the Training Solution will immediately and automatically terminate and the Customer will return to BroadShield any Equipment provided to the Customer as part of the Training Solution.  
15.4.    Any termination or expiry of any Contract (by BroadShield) will not affect any accrued rights or liabilities of either BroadShield or the Customer, nor will it affect the coming into force or the continuance in force of any of these Terms and Conditions that is expressly, or by implication, intended to come into or to continue in force on or after termination. 
15.5.    No refund of any charges, fees or expenses paid in advance will be made on the termination or expiry of any Contract. 
15.6.    15.6 Conditions 1, 4.3, 4.4, 4.6, 4.10, 9.4, 12, 14, 15.3, 15.4, 15.5, 15.6, 17, and 18 will survive the termination of the Contract and continue indefinitely.  


16.    Delays


16.1.    Despite anything else contained in these Terms and Conditions, any Order Form, or any Service Specification, BroadShield will not be liable for any delay in performing or failure to perform its obligations caused by circumstances beyond its control (including, without limitation, any act or omission on the part of the Customer or on the part of any third party, and any defect, error, fault or deficiency in any software not provided by BroadShield or in any equipment), and BroadShield will be granted a reasonable extension of time for the performance of its obligations, the reasonableness of that extension will be assessed not only in the context of the project in hand but also in the context of its other commitments.  
16.2.    BroadShield will endeavour to comply with the Project Plan, timetable or dates which BroadShield have given to the Customer for the performance of the Training Solutions, but these are estimates only, and BroadShield will not be liable for any delay or failure to supply or perform in accordance with that timetable or those dates. 
16.3.    Both BroadShield and the Customer will use reasonable endeavours to carry out their respective obligations so as to allow the other a reasonable period within which to perform its obligations. If either BroadShield or the Customer becomes aware of the possibility of any delay or slippage, it will notify the other as soon as practicable. If either BroadShield or the Customer causes any delay, the other will be allowed a reasonable extension of time for the performance of its tasks, the reasonableness of that extension to be assessed not only in the context of the project in hand but also in the context of other commitments.  


17.    Liability


17.1.    Nothing in these Terms and Conditions limits or excludes BroadShield’s liability for the death or injury of any person caused by its negligence or for any fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation. 
17.2.    Subject to Condition 17.1, but otherwise despite anything else contained in these Terms and Conditions, BroadShield will not be liable to the Customer for loss of profits, loss of savings, loss of use, loss of business, loss of opportunity, loss or spoiling of data, loss of contracts (in each case whether direct or indirect), or for any indirect or consequential loss, whether arising from negligence, or breach of contract, or in any other way, even if BroadShield was advised of or knew of the likelihood of that loss or type of loss arising. 17.3.    Subject to Condition 17.1, but otherwise despite anything else contained in these Terms and Conditions, BroadShield’s total liability in connection with each Contract, whether in contract, or tort (including negligence) or arising in any other way, will not exceed the lesser of the total of the Price and the Charges paid by the Customer under that Contract or £100,000. 


18.    General


18.1.    No delay by either party in enforcing its rights will prejudice or restrict those rights. No waiver of any right will operate as a waiver of any other breach. No right, power or remedy conferred on, or reserved to either party is exclusive of any other right, power or remedy available to it and each of those rights, powers, and remedies is cumulative.  
18.2.    The relevant sections of these Terms and Conditions, the Order Form, the Service Specification and Project Plan supersede all earlier agreements, arrangements and understandings between the Customer and BroadShield in relation to the subject matter of the Contract and constitute the entire agreement between BroadShield and the Customer relating to that subject matter. No addition to or modification of any provision of these Terms and Conditions or any Order Form will be binding on BroadShield or the Customer unless recorded in writing and signed by a duly authorised representative of each of BroadShield and the Customer.  
18.3.    The Customer may not assign, or transfer, or sub-contract or sub-license any of its rights or obligations under any Contract, whether in whole or in part, without first obtaining BroadShield’s written consent.  
18.4.    All notices to be given under these Terms and Conditions must be in writing and be sent to the intended recipient at its registered office or principal place of business or any other address in England which the intended recipient has designated for that purpose by notice given in accordance with the provisions of this Condition 18.4. Any notice may be delivered personally, or by first class pre-paid letter and will be deemed to have been served: if by hand, when delivered; and if by first class post, 48 hours after posting.  
18.5.    Nothing in these Terms and Conditions creates, evidences or implies any partnership or joint venture between BroadShield and the Customer or the relationship between them of principal and agent.  
18.6.    The Customer will not, either during the period when BroadShield is providing any Training Solution to the Customer, or for 6 months afterwards, without first obtaining BroadShield’s written consent:  
18.6.1.    solicit or endeavour to entice away from, or discourage from being employed or engaged by, BroadShield anyone who is or has been involved in the provision of those Training Solutions; or  
18.6.2.    employ, engage or endeavour to employ or engage anyone who is employed or engaged by BroadShield and is or has been involved in providing those Training Solutions.  
18.7.    No third party is entitled to the benefit of any Contract subject to these Terms and Conditions under the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 or otherwise.
