All notices given under this Agreement must be given to each party’s Single Point of Contact at either the email address or the postal address provided by one party to the other (or such other address as notified by a party to the other from time to time). Notice will be deemed received and properly served 24 hours after an email is sent or three days after the date of posting of any letter. In proving the service of any notice, it will be sufficient to prove, in the case of a letter, that such letter was properly addressed, stamped and placed in the post and in the case of an email that such email was sent to the specified email address of the addressee.

The Client may not transfer, assign, charge or otherwise deal in the Agreement, or any of the Client’s rights or obligations arising under the Agreement, without obtaining prior written consent from Eligible.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, nothing in this clause shall excuse the Client from any payment obligation under the Agreement.
