Without affecting any other right or remedy available to it, the Supplier may terminate the Contract with immediate effect by giving written notice to the Customer if:
the Customer fails to pay any amount due under the Contract on the due date for payment; or
[there is a change of control of the Customer.]

any provision of the Contract that expressly or by implication is intended to come into or continue in force on or after termination [or expiry] of the Contract shall remain in full force and effect; and
termination [or expiry] of the Contract shall not affect any of the rights, remedies, obligations or liabilities of the parties that have accrued up to the date of termination [or expiry], including the right to claim damages in respect of any breach of the Contract which existed at or before the date of termination [or expiry].
Force majeure. Neither party shall be in breach of the Contract nor liable for delay in performing, or failure to perform, any of its obligations under the Contract if such delay or failure result from events, circumstances or causes beyond its reasonable control.

Variation. No variation of the Contract shall be effective unless it is in writing and signed by the parties (or their authorised representatives).
A waiver of any right or remedy under the Contract or by law is only effective if given in writing and shall not be deemed a waiver of any subsequent right or remedy.
A failure or delay by a party to exercise any right or remedy provided under the Contract or by law shall not constitute a waiver of that or any other right or remedy, nor shall it prevent or restrict any further exercise of that or any other right or remedy. No single or partial exercise of any right or remedy provided under the Contract or by law shall prevent or restrict the further exercise of that or any other right or remedy.
Severance. If any provision or part-provision of the Contract is or becomes invalid, illegal or unenforceable, it shall be deemed modified to the minimum extent necessary to make it valid, legal and enforceable. If such modification is not possible, the relevant provision or part-provision shall be deemed deleted.
