10.1        In the event of a dispute between you and another User, you must make every effort to reach a fair and amicable resolution. If a resolution cannot be found, we may attempt to mediate the dispute on your behalf, but we shall not provide assistance unless you can demonstrate that you have been proactive in your attempts to resolve the matter.

10.2        We may transfer this agreement to someone else. We may transfer our rights and obligations under the Rental Terms to another organisation. We will always ensure that the transfer will not affect your rights under the Rental Terms.

10.6        Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these Rental Terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things, and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date. For example, if you miss a payment and we do not chase you, but we continue to provide the products, we can still require you to make the payment at a later date.

10.7        Which laws apply to this contract and where you may bring legal proceedings. These Rental Terms are governed by the laws of England and Wales and you can bring legal proceedings in respect of these Rental Terms in the courts of England and Wales.
