promptly notifies the other of the Force Majeure event and its expected duration; and
uses reasonable endeavours to minimise the effects of that event.
If, due to Force Majeure, a Party:
is (or is likely to be) unable to perform a material obligation; or
is (or is likely to be) delayed in or prevented from performing its obligations for a continuous period of more than sixty (60) Business Days;
the Parties will renegotiate the Agreement to achieve, as nearly as possible, its original commercial intent.
Each Party will treat as confidential all information obtained from the other Party under or in connection with this Agreement which is designated as confidential by the other Party or which is by its nature clearly confidential. The recipient Party will not disclose such confidential information to any person (except only to those employees, agents, sub-contractors, suppliers and other representatives who need to know it) or use such confidential information without the other Party’s prior written consent.

- is already or becomes public knowledge (otherwise than as a result of a breach of this clause);
- is independently developed by the recipient Party without access to or use of such information;
- is required to be disclosed by law or regulatory authority.
- Each Party will ensure that all persons to whom it discloses any confidential information of the other Party are aware, prior to disclosure, of the confidential nature of the information and that they owe a duty of confidence to the other Party. These obligations of confidentiality will survive any termination of this Agreement.
- Each Party will establish and maintain adequate security measures to safeguard the information and data of the other Party in its possession from unauthorised access use or copying.
Without prejudice to the termination provisions in this Agreement, if a Party believes in good faith that the other Party (Other Party) has breached any material term of this Agreement, that Party (Aggrieved Party) shall notify the Other Party, in writing setting forth in reasonable detail the nature of the alleged breach (Notice of Breach). If the Other Party does not dispute the validity of the Notice of Breach, it shall promptly undertake to cure the breach described therein.

Any dispute to be resolved under this Agreement shall first be submitted for resolution to the representatives of each Party then charged with the administration of this Agreement. If such representatives are unable to resolve the dispute within five (5) Business Days after the date on which the Notice of Breach is received by the Other Party, then, the dispute shall be submitted to the Directors (or persons of comparable authority) of each Party for resolution. If such Directors are unable to resolve the dispute within ten (10) Business Days after the date on which the Notice of Breach is received by the Other Party, then each Party shall be free to pursue whatever remedies hereunder, at law or in equity may be available to it in respect of the subject matter of the dispute.
Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, the cure period provided in this Agreement for any breach which is the subject of a dispute submitted for resolution in accordance with this clause will be suspended during foregoing dispute resolution procedures and commence to run on the day after the dispute has been resolved in favour of the Aggrieved Party or the dispute resolution procedures have been exhausted, whichever is applicable.
Before resorting to legal proceedings the Parties may (but shall not be obliged to) attempt to settle by negotiations between them in good faith all disputes or differences between them out of or in connection with this Agreement. The Parties further agree that (provided that both Parties consider that such negotiations will be assisted thereby), they will appoint a Mediator by mutual agreement, or failing mutual agreement each Party will appoint a Mediator of their choice and the two appointed Mediators will appoint a third mediator to assist them and the Parties in such negotiations. Mediation shall take place in London or such other place as the Parties mutually agree. Both Parties agree to co-operate fully with the appointed Mediator (or Mediators), provide such assistance as necessary to enable the Mediators to discharge their duties, and to bear equally between them the fees and expenses of the Mediators, but otherwise each Party shall bear their own costs. Unless the Parties otherwise agree in writing, if Mediation is unable to resolve the dispute within thirty (30) days from the Notice of Breach above then the dispute shall be determined by the courts of England and Wales.
Neither Party shall be entitled to assign or sub-licence to any third party any of its rights or obligations under the Agreement without the other Party’s prior written consent.
Dimensions Curriculum shall be entitled to assign or sub-contract its rights and obligations under this Agreement to any person, but Dimensions Curriculum shall give notice of such assignment or sub-contracting in writing to the Licensee.
If any part, term or provision of the Agreement not being of a fundamental nature be held illegal or unenforceable the validity or enforceability of the remainder of the contract shall not be affected.
This Agreement is the entire agreement between the Parties in relation to its subject matter. To the fullest extent permitted by law no other terms apply.
Without prejudice to clause 20.1, or to liability for fraudulent misrepresentation, each Party acknowledges that has not relied on any statement or representation given by or for the other in entering into this Agreement.
Unless otherwise agreed in writing, no delay, act or omission by either Party in exercising any right or remedy will be deemed a waiver of that, or any other, right or remedy.
To cancel a subscription, 30 days’ notice is required in writing and sent to the Party’s address above.
No payment will be reimbursed if notice is given before a contract has come to an end.
If a subscription is automatically renewed, it can be cancelled within the first 14 days of the renewal.
The Agreement may be amended only in writing signed by both Parties.
Relationship of the parties
This Agreement shall not constitute or imply any partnership, joint venture, agency, fiduciary relationship or other relationship between the Parties other than the contractual relationship expressly provided in this Agreement.
25. Rights of third parties
