5.2 If the Supplier's performance of its obligations under the Contract is prevented or delayed by any act or omission of the Customer, its agents, or any other person purporting to act with the authority of or on behalf of the Customer, the Supplier shall not be liable for any costs, charges or losses sustained or incurred by the Customer arising directly or indirectly from such prevention or delay.

5.3 The Customer shall be liable to pay to the Supplier, on demand, all reasonable costs, charges or losses sustained or incurred by the Supplier (including, without limitation, any direct, indirect or consequential losses, loss of profit and loss of reputation, loss or damage to property and those arising from injury to or death of any person and loss of opportunity to deploy resources elsewhere) arising directly or indirectly from the Customer's fraud, negligence, failure to perform or delay in the performance of any of its obligations under the Contract.

5.4 The Customer shall not, without the prior written consent of the Supplier, at any time from the date of the Contract to the expiry of 18 months after the last date of supply of the Services solicit or entice away from the Supplier, (whether for himself or for any other person) or employ (or attempt to employ) any person who is, or has been, engaged as an employee, consultant or subcontractor of the Supplier in the provision of the Services or any other Customer of the Supplier.


6.1 In consideration of the provision of the Services by the Supplier, the Customer shall pay the charges specified on the Supplier’s invoice referred to in this agreement and calculated from the fees specified in Schedule 2.

(a) charge a surcharge on the total sum specified in the invoice of 10%,

(c) suspend all Services until payment has been made in full.

6.7 Time for payment shall be of the essence of the Contract.

6.8 All sums payable to the Supplier under the Contract shall become due immediately on its termination, despite any other provision. This condition is without prejudice to any right to claim for interest under the law, or any such right under the Contract.

6.9 The Supplier may, without prejudice to any other rights it may have, set off any liability of the Customer to the Supplier against any liability of the Supplier to the Customer.


7.1 As between the Customer and the Supplier, all Intellectual Property Rights and all other rights in the Pre-existing Materials, Input Material and the Services shall be owned exclusively by the Supplier.


8.1 The Customer shall keep in strict confidence all technical, theatrical, artistic or commercial know-how, specifications, inventions, ideas, processes or initiatives which have been disclosed to the Customer by the Supplier, its employees, agents, consultants or subcontractors and any other confidential information concerning the Supplier's business or its productions which the Customer may obtain.

8.2 All materials, equipment and tools, drawings, specifications and data supplied by the Supplier to the Customer (including Pre-existing Materials and the Supplier's Equipment) shall, at all times, be and remain [as between the Supplier and the Customer] the exclusive property of the Supplier, but shall be held by the Customer in safe custody at its own risk and maintained and kept in good condition by the Customer until returned to the Supplier, and shall not be disposed of or used other than in accordance with the Supplier's written instructions or authorisation.


9.1 This condition 9 sets out the entire financial liability of the Supplier (including any liability for the acts or omissions of its employees, agents, consultants, and subcontractors) to the Customer in respect of:

(a) any breach of the Contract;

(b) any use made by the Customer of the Services, or any part of them; and

14.2 Unless specifically provided otherwise, rights arising under the Contract are cumulative and do not exclude rights provided by law.

17.1 The Customer shall not, without the prior written consent of the Supplier, assign, transfer or subcontract or deal in any manner with all or any of its rights or obligations under the Contract.

Nothing in the Contract is intended to, or shall be deemed to, constitute a partnership or joint venture of any kind between any of the parties, nor constitute any party the agent of another party for any purpose. No party shall have authority to act as agent for, or to bind, the other party in any way.


A person who is not a party to the Contract shall not have any rights under or in connection with it.
