17. General

  1. Section headings are inserted in agreements for convenience only, and they shall not be taken into account in the interpretation of any agreements.

  2. Where the Customer is obliged to make a payment due to OUCS under or pursuant to any agreement which attracts Value-Added, Sales, Use, Excise or similar taxes or duties, the Customer shall be responsible for paying such taxes and duties.

  3. If the Customer fails to make any payment due to OUCS under any agreement then, without prejudice to the other rights and remedies of OUCS consequent upon breaches of the agreement, OUCS may charge interest on the balance outstanding, accruing from day-to-day at the rate of four per cent (4%) per annum above the Barclays Bank plc rate from time to time in force and compounded annually as at 31 December.

  4. Any variation in an agreement shall be in writing and signed by the formal representatives of both parties.

  5. All agreements are governed by English Law. The English Courts shall have exclusive jurisdiction to deal with any unresolved dispute which has arisen out of or in connection with this Agreement.

  6. If any clause of an agreement is held to be invalid or unenforceable under any applicable statue or rule of law then it shall be deemed to be omitted, and if as a result OUCS becomes liable for loss or damage which would otherwise have been excluded, then such liability shall be subject to the remaining clauses.
