18.3 Each party shall take all reasonable steps to ensure that the other's Confidential Information to which it has access is not disclosed or distributed by its employees or agents in violation of these Terms.
18.4 A party may disclose Confidential Information to the extent such Confidential Information is required to be disclosed by law, by any governmental or other regulatory authority or by a court or other authority of competent jurisdiction, provided that, to the extent it is legally permitted to do so, it gives the other party as much notice of such disclosure as possible and, where notice of disclosure is not prohibited and is given in accordance with this clause 18.4, it takes into account the reasonable requests of the other party in relation to the content of such disclosure.

18.8 The confidentiality provisions herein shall not be construed to limit either party's right to independently develop or acquire products without use of the other party's Confidential Information.

19. Force majeure
The Supplier shall have no liability to the Customer under these Terms if it is prevented from or delayed in performing its obligations under these Terms, or from carrying on its business, by acts, events, omissions or accidents beyond its reasonable control, including, without limitation, strikes, lock-outs or other industrial disputes (whether involving the workforce of the Supplier or any other party), failure of a utility service or transport or telecommunications network, act of God, war, riot, civil commotion, malicious damage, compliance with any law or governmental order, rule, regulation or direction, accident, breakdown of plant or machinery, fire, flood, storm or default of suppliers or sub-contractors, provided that the Customer is notified of such an event and its expected duration.
These Terms may be varied from time to time at the discretion of the Supplier as more particularly detailed in clause 10. The Supplier reserves the right to update, change, edit or alter these Terms in respect of market, legal or company led factors and may supply a written copy of any change to the Customer. By agreeing to these Terms, the Customer agrees to the current Terms and any future variations thereof.
No failure or delay by a party to exercise any right or remedy provided under these Terms or by law shall constitute a waiver of that or any other right or remedy, nor shall it prevent or restrict the further exercise of that or any other right or remedy. No single or partial exercise of such right or remedy shall prevent or restrict the further exercise of that or any other right or remedy.
22. Rights and remedies
Except as expressly provided in these Terms, the rights and remedies provided under these Terms are in addition to, and not exclusive of, any rights or remedies provided by law. Without prejudice to any other rights or remedies that the Supplier may have, the Customer acknowledges and agrees that damages alone would not be an adequate remedy for breach of clauses 5, 14 or 18 of these Terms by the Customer. Accordingly, the Supplier shall be entitled to the remedies of injunction, specific performance or other equitable relief for any threatened or actual breach of these clauses in these Terms.
23.1 If any provision or part-provision of these Terms is or becomes invalid, illegal or unenforceable, it shall be deemed deleted, but that shall not affect the validity and enforceability of the rest of these Terms.

25.2 The Supplier may at any time assign, transfer, charge, sub-contract or deal in any other manner with all or any of its rights or obligations under these Terms.
26. No partnership or agency
Nothing in these Terms is intended to or shall operate to create a partnership between the parties, or authorise any party to act as agent for the other, and neither party shall have the authority to act in the name or on behalf of or otherwise to bind the other in any way (including, but not limited to, the making of any representation or warranty, the assumption of any obligation or liability and the exercise of any right or power).
27.1 Any notice required to be given under these Terms shall be in writing via (1) product notifications, or (2) email notifications to the email address of either the Supplier or the Customer, as applicable, and as may be notified by either from time to time.
28. Governing law and Jurisdiction
These Terms and any disputes or claims arising out of or in connection with them or their subject matter or formation (including non-contractual disputes or claims) shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of Ireland and the parties irrevocably agree that the courts of Ireland shall have exclusive jurisdiction to settle any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with these Terms or their subject matter or formation (including non-contractual disputes or claims).
