Laws may require that some of the information or communications Ometria sends to Client should be in writing. When using the Ometria Service, Client accepts that communication with Ometria will be mainly electronic. Ometria will contact Client by e-mail or provide Client with information by posting notices on the Ometria Service. For contractual purposes, Client agrees to this electronic means of communication and Client acknowledges that all contracts, notices, information and other communications that Ometria provides to Client electronically comply with any legal requirement that such communications be in writing.
All notices given by Client to Ometria must be given to [email protected] Ometria may give notice to Client at either the e-mail or postal address Client provides to Ometria, or by posting such notice on the Ometria Service. Notice will be deemed received and properly served immediately when posted on the Ometria Service or twenty-four (24) hours after an e-mail is sent or three (3) 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 e-mail that such e-mail was sent to the specified e-mail address of the addressee.
Client may not assign or transfer this Agreement, or any of Client’s rights or obligations arising under the Agreement, without Ometria’s prior written consent.

For the avoidance of doubt, nothing in this clause shall excuse Client from any payment obligations under the Agreement.
No forbearance or delay by either party in enforcing its rights shall prejudice or restrict the rights of that party, and no waiver of any such rights or of any breach of any contractual terms shall be deemed to be a waiver of any other right or of any later breach.
If any provision of the Agreement is judged to be illegal or unenforceable, the continuation in full force and effect of the remainder of the provisions shall not be prejudiced.
24.1 Ometria has the right to revise and amend the Terms of Service from time to time to reflect changes in market conditions affecting Ometria’s business.
24.2 Client will be subject to the Terms of Service in force at the time that it makes use of the Ometria Service, or if Ometria notifies Client of changes to the Terms of Service and it continues to use the Ometria Service Client will be subject to those changes.

(ii) shall remain responsible for the acts and omission of any such processor as if they were the acts and omissions of Ometria; and
(iii) shall inform the Client of any intended changes concerning the addition or replacement of the processors, thereby giving the Client the opportunity to object to such changes provided that if the Client objects to the changes and cannot demonstrate, to Ometria’s reasonable satisfaction, that the objection is due to an actual or likely breach of Applicable Data Protection Law, the Client shall indemnify Ometria for any losses, damages, costs (including legal fees) and expenses suffered by Ometria in accommodating the objection.
(b) transfer Client Personal Data outside of the UK as required for the Purpose, provided that Ometria shall ensure that all such transfers are effected in accordance with Applicable Data Protection Laws.
