13.5 The provisions of this clause 13 shall survive termination of this Agreement, however arising.
14.1 Either party may terminate the Customer’s subscription to the Service by written notice to the other party in the event that (i) such other party materially breaches this Agreement and does not cure such breach within thirty (30) days of such notice, or (ii) immediately in the event the other party becomes the subject of a petition in bankruptcy or any other proceeding relating to insolvency, receivership, liquidation or assignment for the benefit of creditors. Upon any termination for cause by the Customer pursuant to this clause 14.1, Shipfix will refund the Customer a pro-rata portion of any prepaid Fees that cover the remainder of the applicable Subscription Term after the effective date of termination.

14.3 Any rights, remedies, obligations or liabilities of the parties that have accrued up to the date of termination, including the right to claim damages in respect of any breach of the Agreement which existed at or before the date of termination will not be affected or prejudiced. The clauses titled “Definitions,” “Confidentiality,” “Ownership and Customer Data,” “Charges and Payment,” “Warranty and Disclaimer,” “Liability,” “Indemnity,” “Termination,” and “General” shall survive any termination or expiration of Customer’s subscription to the Service.
15.1 The parties agree to the provisions of the Data Processing Addedum attached at Schedule 1 in relation to the processing of Customer Personal Data by Shipfix as a Processor (as defined in the Data Processing Addendum) on behalf of the Customer in the provision of the Service. Each party undertakes to comply with its obligations under applicable Data Protection Legislation.
16.1 Where any notice or other communication is to be made under this Agreement, it must be in writing. Notices or communications may be left at, or sent by first class post or registered post to, the address of the party given at the start of this Agreement or any other address they may nominate in writing from time to time.
16.2 Any notice required to be given in writing shall be sent by email to each party as follows, or to such different notice details as are notified by one party to the other in writing from time to time:
16.3 Any notice or communication left at an address of a party in accordance with this clause 14 will be received at the time of delivery. In other cases, any notice or communication will be treated as having been received by the person to whom it is addressed five (5) days following the date of despatch of the notice by post or where the notice is given by email, simultaneously on completion of transmission. However, where in any case, these rules would result in a notice or communication being treated as being received on a day that is not a business day in Paris, France, it will be treated as having been received on the next business day afterwards. To prove the giving of a notice it shall be sufficient to show it was properly despatched.
17.1 Entire Agreement: This Agreement and all documents referred to herein contain all of the terms of the agreement between the parties relating to the matters covered in this Agreement and supersede any previous agreement or understanding relating to such matters. Each party acknowledges that it has not relied upon any express or implied representations, warranty, collateral contract or other assurance other than as expressly set out in this Agreement made by or on behalf of the other party at any time before the date of this Agreement. Nothing in this Agreement shall operate to limit or exclude any liability for fraudulent misrepresentation.
17.2 Assignment, Transfer And Sub-Contracting: The Customer may not transfer or assign any or all of its rights and obligations under the Agreement without Shipfix’s prior written consent. Shipfix may assign or transfer any or all of its rights and obligations under this Agreement to any affiliate, and may subcontract any of its obligations, in its sole discretion.
17.3 Third Parties: Nothing in this Agreement confers any right on any person (other than the parties) pursuant to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999.
17.4 No Partnership, Joint Venture or Agency: This Agreement will not operate so as to create a partnership, or joint venture, or agency of any kind between the parties. Nothing contained in this Agreement will be so construed as to constitute either party to be the agent of the other. Neither party will have any authority to make any commitments on the other party's behalf.
17.5 Severance: If any provision of this Agreement is held to be invalid or unenforceable by any judicial or other competent authority, all other provisions of this Agreement will remain in full force and effect and will not in any way be impaired. If any provision of this Agreement is held to be invalid or unenforceable but would be valid or enforceable if some part of the provision were deleted, or the period of the obligation reduced in time, or the range of activities or area covered reduced in scope, the provision in question will apply with the minimum modifications necessary to make it valid and enforceable.
17.6 Waiver: A waiver of any right, power, privilege or remedy provided by this Agreement must be in writing and may be given subject to any conditions thought fit by the grantor. For the avoidance of doubt, any omission to exercise, or delay in exercising, any right or remedy under this Agreement will not constitute a waiver of that, or any other, right or remedy.
17.7 Cumulative Rights: The rights, powers, privileges and remedies provided in this Agreement are cumulative and are not exclusive of any other rights, powers, privileges or remedies provided by law.
17.8 Inadequacy of Damages: Without prejudice to any other rights or remedies that Shipfix may have, the Customer acknowledges and agrees that damages alone would not be an adequate remedy for any breach of the terms of this Agreement by the Customer. Accordingly, Shipfix shall be entitled to the remedies of injunction, specific performance or other equitable relief for any threatened or actual breach of the terms of this Agreement.
18.1 Subject to clause 18.2, any variation of this Agreement and/or of any of the documents referred to in it is valid if it is in writing and signed by or on behalf of each party.
18.2 The Service is subject to this Agreement only, to the exclusion of any other terms which would otherwise be implied by trade, custom, practice or course of dealing.

Shipfix reserves the right to amend this Agreement from time to time as it relates to third party data available on the Service or to comply with the instructions and requirements of its suppliers and licensors.

19.2 Without prejudice to the express rights of termination set out in this Agreement, both parties will attempt in good faith to resolve any disputes arising out of, or relating to, this Agreement promptly by negotiations between representatives of the parties who have authority to settle the dispute in question.
19.3 The parties irrevocably agree that the courts of England have exclusive jurisdiction to settle any dispute or claim that arises out of or in connection with this Agreement or its subject matter or formation (including non-contractual disputes or claims).
This Data Processing Addendum (“Addendum”) forms part of, and is incorporated into, the Shipfix Services Subscription Agreement. In this Addendum, “Customer Personal Data” means the Personal Data in respect of which the Customer is the Controller and Shipfix is a Processor. “Personal Data”, “Data Subject”, “Personal Data Breach”, “Processing”, “Processor” and “Controller” will each have the meaning given to them in the GDPR. Capitalised terms used in this Addendum that are not otherwise defined shall have the meaning given to them in the Shipfix Services Subscription Agreement.

1.2 Types of Personal Data. Customer Personal Data includes name, employment position, email address, business address, telephone number.
1.3 Subject-Matter, Nature and Purpose of The Processing.

2.2 If Shipfix cannot process Customer Personal Data in accordance with the Customer’s instructions due to a legal requirement under any applicable law of the European Union, its Member States or the United Kingdom, Shipfix will (i) promptly notify the Customer of such inability, providing a reasonable level of detail as to the instructions with which it cannot comply and the reasons why it cannot comply, to the greatest extent permitted by applicable law; and (ii) cease all Processing of the affected Customer Personal Data (other than merely storing and maintaining the security of the affected Customer Personal Data) until such time as the Customer issues new instructions with which Shipfix is able to comply. If this provision is invoked, Shipfix will not be liable to the Customer under the Shipfix Services Subscription Agreement for failure to perform the Service until such time as the Customer issues new instructions. Shipfix will also immediately inform the Customer if, in its opinion, an instruction from the Customer infringes the Data Protection Legislation.

Shipfix will inform Customer of any intended changes concerning the addition or replacement of any sub-Processors and Customer will have an opportunity to object to such changes on reasonable grounds within fifteen (15) days after being notified. If the parties are unable to resolve such objection, either party may terminate the Shipfix Services Subscription Agreement by providing written notice to the other party.
6.2 Shipfix will enter into a binding written agreement with the sub-Processor that imposes on the sub-Processor substantially the same obligations as apply to Shipfix under this Addendum.
