10.3 No delay by either party in enforcing its rights will limit or restrict the rights of that party and no waiver of any such rights or of any breach of any contractual terms will be deemed to be a waiver of any other right or of any later breach.
10.4 If any provision of this EULA (or part of any provision) is found by any court or other authority of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, the other provisions will remain unaffected and in force.
10.5 This EULA contains the whole agreement between the parties in respect of its subject matter and supersedes any prior written or oral agreement between them, and the parties confirm that they have not entered into this EULA on the basis of any representations that are not expressly incorporated in this agreement. Nothing in this EULA will operate to limit or exclude any liability for fraud.

10.8 This EULA, its subject matter and its formation (and any non-contractual disputes or claims relating to this EULA) are governed by English law. The parties both agree to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of England and Wales.
