implying any partnership or joint venture between the parties and nothing in these Terms and

for any reason by any court of competent jurisdiction such provision shall be severed and the

remainder of the provisions hereof shall continue in full force and effect as if these Terms and

Conditions had been agreed with the invalid, illegal or unenforceable provision eliminated.


This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the law of England
