18. OTHER IMPORTANT TERMS
18.1 We may transfer this Agreement to someone else. We may transfer Our rights and obligations under this Agreement to another organisation, but this will not affect Your rights or Our obligations under these Terms. We will always notify You in writing or by posting on Our webpage if this happens.

If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful or unenforceable, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
18.5 Even if We delay in enforcing this Agreement, We can still enforce it later.
