14.3 This contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms.
14.4 If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date. For example, if you miss a payment and we do not chase you but we continue to provide the products, we can still require you to make the payment at a later date.
14.5 These terms are governed by English law and you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in the English courts.
